Stop: Sale Time

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.

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.

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.

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.

Money Back Guarantee 

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.

Well Timed

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.

On Flea-k

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.

Bundling

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.

Flea Infested 

When it’s this hot out, indoor flea markets are the only choice. For $8, this isn’t such a bad deal.

Not So HD

$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.
