Always good to be the person everyone knows who is into 'a bunch of old stuff'. I've gotten a free PS2 and CDX this way as well as a few random games for fixing stuff for people.

Got these about a week ago, forgot to post them:

Both from Play-N-Trade, $10

XBox High Def AV Pack http://img600.imageshack.us/img600/773/xboxc.png

MakenX for the DC, disc only, I whipped up a pretty sweet cover deal w/ the Cover Project and Paint http://img687.imageshack.us/img687/284/makenx.png

edit:

And I JUSt got my replacement copy of Tenchu: Stealth Assassins (PS1)... I ordered one a couple weeks ago and it was notably not as "acceptable" as described so I returned it and got my new one from someone else (all Ebay action) and the new one is niCE. 10ish dollars, I don't remember exactly.

Picked up

Gundam Lost War Chronicles PS2
Another Century Episode 1 PS2

29 dollars shipped on ebay, but the best part was its from a U.S seller, so I didn't have to deal with EMS shipping prices.

If the box is in good shape, I like that buy a lot. Wave Race 64 is one of my fav games all time and I'm still hunting a minty boxed copy. I've got to have had 50 loose copies over the years, but sold my original boxed and never came across another one to my liking.

We <3 Katamari (PS2)
Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness (GCN)
The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (GBA)

After tax, $39.96.

Going to have to return XD though. I got a disc read error about 10 minutes into testing, and looking at the disc, it appears to be suffering from some rot.
