A Better Starting Five

Local store find, only $14 after a trade-in of unsold garage sale fodder. This is the first time I’ve seen a copy of Widget locally. Captain America is a tough find on the Game Gear too. All in all, a fine selection of games and a great deal.

Stop: Sale Time

Oh, you’re having a 25% off all retro games sale, are you? I’ll gladly take advantage of that and spend around $12 for this lot (also involved were some movies not pictured making the total less precise). Nothing special, but it fills some holes on a variety of platforms.

Dupes

Small thrift store find, mostly to replace copies I have in lesser condition. Tekken 2 is taking place of a Greatest Hits copy because… Eww. $8 for the stack. 

And for some reason, the camera hates Hydro Thunder and kept cutting off the edge of the image.

Blaster for My Master 

 Post-birthday gift card splurge. Total cost? $2.50 after the card. Needed a N64 as mine is suffering from a bad video port and Blaster Master 2 was on the want list for a good while. Nice to cross that one out.

A Sporting 4th

Why yes, I AM the guy who will wait until a 20% off holiday sale to buy $1 sports games. Every cent counts. A $24 haul from an out of town game store. The winner here is Chavez, a rarely seen sequel to Riddick Bowe Boxing. That, or maybe the Pac-Man book. It’s incredible in its awfulness. 

I also realize my phone camera focused on the wrong part of this image, and no, I’m not retaking it.

Switching Up

Normally wouldn’t post a current gen purchase like this, but it’s my first buy for the Switch. $38 for the whole lot at GameStop. For those considering a sub-collection, Marvel vs Capcom and Song of the Deep are GameStop exclusives.

NESting

A rare NES find, at least these days. $20 for this whole lot at a Napoleon, OH flea market, which includes controllers and all cables, plus the games. It’s definitely a rescue though – heavy smoke odor and dirt will need some work to remove.

Sailing Away

Community garage sale find of little excitement. Was in a mood to revisit NBA Street after spending time with NBA Playground while Ace Combat completes the series set on PS2. With the addition of the SNES AV cable, this haul ran me $4.10. Big spender.

Fishing for Games

Been dealing with continuing health issues but in an attempt for normalcy, I headed to a local game store and found… a fishing game. Not terribly exciting, but Mark Davis’ The Fishing Master is not common, and for $8 total with the Game Boy game? Not a bad deal.

Hellraiser

When 3DO games beckon, I respond. A $40 haul, a good price overall. NBA Showtime is a replacement and NBA Jam I only needed for the long box. Hell, though, is the one I’ve tried snagging numerous times and finally found it for the right price. 

And ironically, six games divided by $40? 6.66 per game. It was meant to be.
