I also picked up the Banjo Kazooie promo VHS as I remember seeing some levels that didn't make it into the actual game.Originally Posted by Aussie2B
I wish it was still summer for the kiddos. Somehow it seems vendors also disappear or bring less to the fleamarket. Nonetheless, I was able to pick up:
Lufia & the Fortress of Doom - $3.00
Battletoads/Double Dragon - $3.00
Porky's (1983 Atari) - $2.00 .... only cartridges, but all really nice
Yesterday, I found Sonic CD for the Sega CD for $5.99.
On Sunday, I found a Sega Sports Dreamcast with two controllers, VMU, NBA 2K, Conflict Zone, and Carrier for $25.
***If you have any Transformers toys or Three Investigators books, let me know.***
DAMNIT! I had an awesome find @ Goodwill but the (almost) MOST AWESOME part DIDN'T COME WITH THE GAME.
Complete, pretty nice condition NES Cleaning Kit.
Sega CD garbage - Dracula Unleashed, Cliffhanger, and a Puggsy missing the manual - plus one more..!
A loose 32x VF cartridge (my first 32x game ever!)
Komplete MK (had MKII, needed the original I guess)
Jurassic Park (second copy here), almost-mint throughout except that the insert slipped out a bit and is worn (put it back in place)
Kid Chameleon - CIB, much better than my original no-hanger copy :>
CIB Sonic 1 (NFResale ver.) and Sonic 2 (regular, w/hanger)
Forgotten Worlds - complete w/out hanger and some ripping on case plastic cover, R3 and $7
Golden Axe II - Complete w/out hanger but otherwise very nice, R4 and $8
Finally, the (almost) nicest bit:
Sega CD Dungeon Explorer - case and manual - but the game inside is a Lethal Enforcers! GAH!
But the most awesome part -
Herzog Zwei - Complete, R4 and $30!
For all of that, I paid $47.54 - so essentially I paid for Herzog Zwei, Golden Axe II and Forgotten Worlds, and got the rest free.
If only every day was this good! :D
My FIRST antique store find EVER
NES - Donkey Kong (Boxed) - 5
Darkstalkers (Complete, longbox) - 6
I found Mohawk & Headphone Jack at GameStop for $4.
This is what I got at Goodwill today:Originally Posted by Rogmeister
Atari 2600 -- .79 Each
Donkey Kong Jr (R4)
Atari 7800 -- .79 Each
Pole Position II
NES -- .79 Each
Flight of the Intruder (R5)
...and of course
Loose Sega Genesis Console -- .99 (I just can't quit!)
Loose Genesis consoles @ $.99 a pop? Count me in!
(Though I'm always good with SNESes - for some reason those seem to be cheaper, yes, that means the one Model 2 I found, at my Goodwill*)
*based on a sample size of 1 spotting compared to various Genesis units found at same store
Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (loose) - $5.95
Finding this at that price was pretty good. I was thinking about paying $9.99 for it at Game Crazy for a few months. Guess now I know why I didn't.
Only 3 SNES games to go until I hit 100.
Did a little lunchtime jaunt down to CEX, to discover huge hoards of 2600 games, 32x games, Lynx games and 3DO games all for £0.50 each. being short of cash, ignorant about Atari & Panasonic stuff - and also ostensibly shopping for camping gear - for the weekend I only picked up 3 copies of Virtua Racing 32x.
However got back to work to find I've got a £1500 pay rise .. going back straight after to fill my boots with cheap games! :-)
Some of the 2600 & Lynx games are sealed. Yeah baby!
My goodwills finnaly done it, they had about 20 or so games yesterday for nes, and genesis but now the prices are 3.99. They used to be .99 for nes, 1.99 for genesis. They had nothing worthwhile anyways. They had about 6 complete gamecube games though for 3.99, but I dont have a gamecube. I guesss goodwills not the place anymore, unless someone always buys the .99 nes games and now since they are 4 bucks no one will want them so even the rares will stay, who knows, maybe it was just that day.
Ren & Steempy Time Warp
Bonkers - complete
Plus the guy threw in about 400 manuals for NES, GB/GBA, N64, SNES and Atari 2600. Keep an eye on the orphanage thread since I will definitely be wanting to get rid of dupes for ones I need.
damn i wish i lived in london.. u even have CEX Retro... ur so lucky!Originally Posted by Vroomfunkel

Deadly Towers w/ directions and sleeve- $5
Me agree also.
Butt-Ugly Martians: Zoom or Doom (PS2, complete) - $5.39
The game sucks, but I haven't seen it very often.
Heart of Darkness (PS1, complete) - $4
Monster Rancher Battle Card (PS1, complete) - $4
And...I traded in a copy of XB Pro Race Driver to FYE in order to get PS2 Street Fighter Collection next week. With my employee discount, it won't cost me anything more.
Currently playing: Fallout 3 and Namco Museum Virtual Arcade (both 360)
Both the Goodwill Store and Salavation Army store in my town overprice their games - Examples:Originally Posted by Rogmeister
SMB/Duck Hunt loose - $2.50 a piece
SMS Games - $5.00 a piece
Genesis sports games - $5.00 a piece
These prices are regardless of condition or if they have box and/or manual.
On a positive note I did pick up Herzog Zwei with manual for $6 today but it was at a different store.
We saved some guy's life. Killed some vicious murdering lichs and blew up something big. I'd call that a pretty good night.
damn, Grimbal, those prices are messed up! I can get ANY old game for $2.99, and I found a complete Zwei at that price yesterday. Ugh, that sorta sucks, man. You should try to talk them down or something. o_O I feel lucky now.
dont you guys love pictures? Mine will be posted if the email from my dad ever comes through. Ive got a bunch of stuff last week, I went to 4 garage sales today, no one had games, and luckily I didnt get any "we already sold them to someguy". I will edit this with pics in a little while...hopefully. I also got a night bright from 1967 with box and all peices, its cool looking, and its got everything it originnaly came with.
mmm... here it is...my first pics of finds...
I spent about 20 bucks on all of it. some was free from friends, some from garage sales, some from a trade.
A pretty good day, lots of genesis stuff as well as a pretty sweet find:
32x - Tempo (sealed) - 6
Genesis - Pac Attack (loose) - 6 (Got the box/manual of course)
Genesis - Action-52 (loose) Just a loose cart but for 3 bucks I can't really complain! Anyone got a spare box and manual ;D? hehe
Ahh Real Monsters
Bass Tournament 96
Pitfall: Mayan Adventure
NFL Football 94
Triple Play 96
College Football USA 96
NFL Quarterback Club 96
Shadow Of The Beast
They were about a buck or 2 bucks and all complete, plus they were actually lower than priced and I discounted em to about 18 bucks. Decided to just grab a ton of stuff since it was cheap and I'm working on completing the collection.
Genesis - Dragon's Fury (Complete)
It was all about the sega genesis today =D.
went to a Goodwill today, for the first time. The gaming market there seemed untapped
It was 2 minutes to closing, so I needed to grab some stuff quick. Between my brother and I, we picked up the following:
Super C (contra)
Like I said, we didn't have much time. I'll go back. All games were $1.99 each, all loose. I accidentally got the colecovision DK, however. There was a bunch of atari carts mixed with colecovision carts, and I just grabbed DK without looking much. My neighbor has an atari and I though I could play it there. Whoops. I don't even know anyone in person that owns a colecovision, heh. :P
There are still a slew of atari and colecovision games there, from asteriods to centipede to ones I've never heard of. There were still some NES/SNES/N64 games I didn't get to check out. I'll go back soon.
Got 2 more cube games
- Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu $19.99
- FIFA Soccer 2002 $8.99
I would have picked up some more but Super Auctions are saturday!
Somebody make me a "CGE 2k7 Attendee banner" so I don't have to use this lame text
I found a boxed small SNES for $25 at GameRush.
I hope that is a good deal.
I also bought a Dreamcast controller and two more VMUs for $2 a piece.
I hope that is also a good deal.
sounds good to me ;DOriginally Posted by SkiDragon
