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.
The Lynx games are not the best part of this $80 game store haul, but the pun was too delicious (note the games stacked on the left are boxes only). This find ends the search for a Nintendo Power #1. There’s a stain on the cover but the inside is pure and complete. Plus, an additional 50 or mags were included:
Oh, you’re having a 25% off all retro games sale, are you? I’ll gladly take advantage of that and spend around $12 for this lot (also involved were some movies not pictured making the total less precise). Nothing special, but it fills some holes on a variety of platforms.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Around $40 for everything here (not pictured are two Tiger Woods Xbox 360 games) at an annual flea market. Good score despite the lack of controllers or AC adapter for the SNES.
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.
