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.

Out Spied

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.

Dealings

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.

Portability

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.

To Saturn

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.
