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.
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.
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.
After a trade-in, this lot came to $40 at a local game store. Decided to start buying last gen games in collections/bundles to save on space. It’s not much, but replacing God of War and Infamous with those collections makes room for two additional shelf spots.
$60 dropped into a local game store. Some decent deals – Mario Galaxy is pristine and was only $10 – and I included the UHD Blu-ray since it was only $10 new. That was a chunk of the cost, and better still, an easy resell for $25 or so.
Was given (mostly) free reign to mop up in a local game store as a birthday gift, leading to this $75/free game haul. While Strider 2 may be missing the other disc (with an emulated version of the arcade original), it’s been on my most wanted list for a decade now. I’ll take what I can get. Sports fans should note NHL 2002 on GBA, which is an update to the Genesis era NHL titles. Physics are a touch off, but everything from the menus to the sprites are identical to NHL 96/97/98.
(Update: The Strider 2 disc is actually the Strider arcade disc. All copies were misprinted, and the games printed in reverse. I can see why the mistake is easy to make now.)
Local game store reopened after being closed for some time. They offered B1G2 free as a thank you, leading to this $20 haul.
A double store find between a local shop and Destiny Games in Michigan. With movie trade-ins and a leftover gift card, this entire haul only ran me $24.50. Ridge Racer Unbounded had eluded me for some time. It must be somewhat uncommon. And, any day with a CD-i score is a good day.
