That Zelda 3DS is not even close to a find of the year, although it is a sweet deal. The Miracle keyboard is closer, and might be about that level if was complete.

Just my thoughts.

I snagged one of these today too. Thanks for the heads up. Front of the box is a little faded, but otherwise minty fresh for $20. :)

havent posted any games finds for a while. I spent most of my money last month on anime and DVDs from an FYE that was closing.

this morning I went to the fleamarket and I got

Buffy The Vampire Slayer XBOX $2.00 Complete

Game Genie for Genesis $1.00

Junction GEN $1.00 Never heard of this game!

Forsaken 64 $5.00

The selection wasnt that great. The flemarket on the weekends has mostly newish stuff, not game related. I have to go on weekdays to get more gaming goodies.

Ooh, will have to look for one when I go out in a bit.

I picked up one too. Gaah I hate it when a post has only an indistinguishable acronym! I almost missed this because of a simple post stating purchase of a TvC fight stick. Thanks to Hobie's earlier post of looking into buying one spiked my curiosity. :shock:

Anyone who has a Wii should definitely grab this. Anyone who likes modding for other systems such as jay_red should also grab it! To raise awareness no acronyms, but the full description. Here is the Gamestop link and pic.

Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Wii Arcade Stick
$19.99 Gamestop - SKU 804516


http://www.gamestop.com/wii/accessories ... tick/76853


At one time these were going for around eighty bucks. The $39.99 price sticker is dated December 2011. Don't think, just click the link and find a local Gamestop. Definitely don't call ahead, the employee might just buy it themselves. A very nice Arcade stick though only for Classic Controller games. Note the slide switch to select either Analog Stick or the Digital pad. The mod in me wants to gut a Remote for Bit Runner and Metroid M. I'll post a review at my Wii Gamecube Thread later.

Finally stepping out of the past and got a Pearl Blue Game Boy Advance SP for $21 off Ebay last night. That is the AGS-101 (2nd revision) with the brighter LCD screen and it comes with the charger. Not bad considering SP's are selling from $30-$50 over the past few days there.

Going to use it for my older GB titles for now, until I can find decent deals on some of the really NICE GBA titles. Was wanting one of these for the longest time.

So I should buy the ones sitting on the shelf at my closest GS?


I would lol.




I'm in a pinch here as well. I've seen the prices jump online, but just like the Skyward Sword/wiimote bundle, there are still a couple of places to buy these new at MSRP near me. I know that it will "eventually" command the prices that it is going for online now, but man, that's almost $200 bucks, and I'll probably never use it.

Being a collector sucks sometimes, because I buy stuff I want to use, but don't want to open it. I haven't gotten to play Mortal Kombat yet (which I'm pretty sure won fighting game of the year multiple times for 2011) because I bought the collector's edition, and I don't want to open it. Same for Catherine.

F-it, I should just buy one. LOL. Who knows? Maybe it will integrate or do something really cool with the Wii-U when it comes out? I haven't been a huge fan of the 3D, but the games are sometimes pretty good. I still dust off my original "huge" DS from time to time, just to play the AMAZING Castlevania games exclusives. Damn.... now I'm probably gonna go buy one after work. :oops:

It's been a good while since I've posted anything on the Finds so here goes:

Refurbished SNES mini (with all cables and 2 generic controllers) + groovy SNES timer
The timer was used back in the days before Internet cafes, neat little piece (picked while I was overseas on vacation; not an official N product)
Image


SFII Guile watch sealed
Bought from a fellow retro gamer off craigslist

Image
Image


FFVII + VIII Key Rings

Image


Kunio-kun multicart for Famicom
I love this cart; love it even more because it works on genuine hardware

20th Anniversary Sonic Figure + Comic
Of course I had to snag these guys 8) The comic is actually a redone issue of the old Archie comics

Club N 18 Card Case for 3DS
Loving the 3DS since my wife got me the SM3DL bundle for X-mas; so much that I haven't touched my PS3 or 360 since! For 250 Club N coins

Old-school Super Mario lunch box
My favorite find in a while! Same lunch box I used as a wee-lil' man! Bought off the same fellow who sold me that Guile watch. Popping that cap off the thermos brought back so many memories!
