- Shenmue II (XBOX) (w/DVD, missing manual)
- Champions: Return to Arms (PS2) (complete)
- Shadow Dancer (Gen) (cart only) - got this one to replace my other copy which has a torn label
- Moon Patrol (2600) (cart only)
- Dreamcast Web 2.0 Disc (unopened) - hehe, not that exciting I know, but I didn't yet have a copy of this. I know I will never use it though...
- PS2 Multitap
- N64 Mic adaptor

Got it all for $24

There were some other tempting finds but they were all overpriced. Goodwills in the Seattle area jack up their prices because of all the gamers and tech heads that live in the area. We don't have any (that I know of) flea markets either. Retro game hunting is a lot harder round here. What I wouldn't give to scour a good flea market...


There's a Deseret Industries in Lynnwood that's not bad. Also I know of a flea market in that same area in Lynnwood, but I didn't see any good games last time I was there. I'm sure there's a flea market or two around here that I'm missing.

You may actually want to open up that dreamcast browser disk. On it is a cool little puzzle game called sega swirl. It's a weird mix of tetris and columns and is pretty addicting.

I'm a bit curious about the FM Towns Marty as well. I really don't know anything about those. What made you really want one?

I wanted it cause I heard a lot of the games are arcade perfect especially Lucas Arts games. Also I was interested in their ports of Splatterhouse, Viewpoint, and Rayxanber just to name a few. Also it was the collector in me that wanted to pick up this console as well. :)

Went to the Unclaimed Baggage Center in Scottsboro, AL yesterday.

My video game finds:

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) - $2.09
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 / Sonic and Tails (GG) - $3.29
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Justice for All [JP] (DS) - $3.29
GameCube Memory Card 251 - $2.09
R4 (DS) - $3.29

There were a couple other games I thought about getting, but overall, the pickings for the price were small. Might go back there in a couple days.
