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.
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.
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 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.
