Sun Faded Score

Local video store had a B2G1 free sale on 360 games and DS games were $2 each, so despite some awful sun fading on the cases, picking up some favorites was worth it for $14 total.

Escaping Winter

Winter is finally letting go, so let the game hunting begin anew with… one DS game. But hey, it’s something, and for $2 at a lower Michigan flea market, so be it.

Rockin New Years

Who’s excited to bring in the new year with me by playing Sargon Chess and Laser Lords on CD-i? Hello? Anyone? Why did you all leave? This was a great $40 find, and none of you appreciate the awesome evident here.

King Pond

Small out of town game store find for $20. Finally completed the Mega Man Battle Network series collection. At some point, I should actually try playing them.

Dreaming of a Finish

Another one down as I inch toward a complete Dreamcast set. Total haul was $13 total after some trade-ins. I’ve never seen Touring Car locally before, so that was a nice grab I think.

3D(BelOw)

Out of town stuff to take care of means an out of town hunt for game stores, leading to this $20 grab. Marvel at my ability to balance Game Boy games on a crushed 3DO box on the rounded arm of a chair.

Tetrimino, Left Pocket

Small NES find at a local game store. $30 for the lot, a bit more than I’d usually spend but aside from Tetris 2, these are unusually hard to find games around here.

Lynx the Cat

A Facebook find. $60 for the lot and while the boxes don’t scream high grade, these fill some uncommon holes in my Lynx set. Plus, these four take me over 5100 total games.

You Down with OPM?

A $30 local game store buy, which includes the first issue of OPM after its name change (from PSX). No demo disc, but that’s okay. The mag is in great shape. The LaRussa Baseball is a wee bit special as it is totally complete, including the team cards. Genesis sports games are the most common thing in collecting, but finding them complete like that? No so easy.

Cleaving Land

Yes, it’s been slow around these parts. Blame an abysmally bad garage sale season. But, today was different as this birthday haul from various game stores in Cleveland shows. Not often do I get to use the TurboGrafx tag, and two more Dreamcast games inch me ever closer to that complete set.
