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.
A basic game store haul totalling $12. But what’s that “spying” from the back? A $7 copy of Super Spy Hunter which was only $2.50 after a store rewards discount? Yup. Win.
A score from Facebook and a local game store, totalling somewhere around $60. A few sort of hard to find SNES games in there – at least hard to find locally anyway. Never saw Wizard of Oz prior to today.
An all portable find from a local game store, and with this, the final Christmas gift card has been extinguished. X-Men: Reign of Apocalypse can be scratched from the wishlist, and the Sonic Advance series is now complete. Not a bad score for only $13 over the gift card’s value.
Minor $20 find from a new out of town game store. Nothing special, but Mat Hoffman plugs one more hole in my Dreamcast set (19 or so to go) and NBA Jam came from a store where I once worked.
Post-Christmas binge for a total cost of… $0. Gift cards rule. Still wondering if I could cash in the guarantee on VR Soccer though.
A $40 Black Friday haul. Everything was 25% off at a local store.
“DOS sports games. Really?”
Yes, because in this case, Madden is exceedingly hard to find. Next to – or even right alongside – the Turbo Duo Madden, this 1995 DOS PC port is the most obscure entry in the series. This is the first one I’ve seen on ebay in some time, so even though it was bundled with the others, I grabbed it. When Madden 96 was cancelled on the PlayStation, the PC port shuffled into stores to recoup the losses. It’s all that remained of the PS1 game until a prototype surfaced years later.
A small thrift store haul, for a total of $10. That’s worth it for the Marvel games alone.
Needed an AC adapter for the SNES find last weekend, which led to this $20 total haul from a local game store. PTO qualifies as a great find for a measly $1 (and it’s complete) while I’ve been hunting for an original box for Arnold Palmer Golf for some time. Weird coincidence/timing I found it the same week he died.
Also, ESPN Speedworld isn’t worth much but it’s not easy to come by if you’re going for a compete set.
