CRT- I found the opposite of component cords at my local gamestop. They had a N64/Gamecube RF adapter.

I searched online by your link - closest for me is 70 miles away. For our RBers in North Jersey you have FOUR within a handful of miles. LETS MAKE A DEAL!

Keep these deals coming CRT 8)

Twinkle Star Sprites
Mark of the Wolves

Both superb games, gorgeous art and highly collectible.

MVS versions can be had for about 20% the AES versions, but just not as pretty 8)


This is one of the reasons I decided to make the invesent. That box is really symbolic of a title I have always dreamed of owning. I had a chance to play for about 20 minutes yesterday, but I can't stop looking at the box :shock:

Yeah, but he never confirmed it, thought it was only a guess, unless there's a way of checking recent sales of a particular game.

5 Japanese MSX games (Salamander, Q Bert, Gradius 2, Parodius, Nemesis 3) for 100 yen each. Put some pics up here:

Just to give an idea of how good a deal that was, loose copies of Salamander and Parodius alone are selling for 100$ each on Ebay. 100 yen is about 1.20$.

From Salvation Army, for $5:

Had to haggle for it if I was to get it for $5, but I did. It had already been sold a month previous, but the buyer never picked it up. Store policy is that if you fail to take your stuff home the day you buy it, it goes back up for sale. So I don't feel guilty for getting his thing for only $5, 'cause they already got paid for it anyway. The $5 is basically a bonus. Also got Need for Speed SE, Railroad Tycoon 3, and Mechwarrior 2, all for PC, $1-$2 apiece.

I know it's ancient, but I think it'll be a neat TV to play NES or watch VHS tapes on.
