Posted by Spin the Demon on September 20, 2010 at 4:38 PM

 Wow this month has been great and its been a light month and a broke one, but some how we have a ton of great gaming stuff we have picked up and would like to share. After im done listing and talking about some of the better items at the bottom I will Post a few Stock Pics of some of the best scores.


  This month at the Good Will has been more or less hit and miss as always. This month I got this cool Retro style CD case for my Import Saturn games and I got it 50% off so it was like 1.50 super sweet deal. I always head to the front display here they have all the games (Or what they think are games) I was blown away they had so many games from SUPER to GENESIS and PS1, Dreamcast and more! I pick 5 items out An NES game, CIB Lion King Genesis,Mickey Mouse game SNES,CIB Crash Bash PS1,Sonic Adventure DC Cover, Insert and Disc Missing Book Pages. for 2.95 or less each 2 were on the 50% list and 1 was one the 30% off list. After I was done at the front I walked over to the back to check for systems, pc games and controllers Ect. I picked up this really cool thing that lets you convert any plug to USA and thats really cool it was only 4.95 I also picked a the Nintendo Power Pad for the Nintendo NES ive wanted one of these since back in the day it was also 4.95 I went to check for old game Mags and guides and found a VHS tape of Mortal Kombat the Cartoon for .99 I picked that up as well, so all in all it was a great day I only spent 27.00 and came home mega happy

I did find a bunch of cheap 3DO games I left because mine is working right.

Gamers Planet:

   Prob. that last pick ups of the month were from my fav. local game shop (Way better after they let some people go) I made a trade for credit for a box on Intellivision  games CIB w/ over lays. And got 5.00 more than I paid so I was happy to get them off to a home were they can be played. I love this store they have a little of every thing I spent a little over an hour with my girl friend and ill let you guys in on what she picked up after my list. I found alot of really good PS1 games they had a good deal going where if it is only the disc its a buck no matter what it is. I picked up three for 1.00 each and a cool looking pinball game CIB for the PS1 .99 I got a new hand held and Ive wanted one of these ever since a youtube review. A game boy pocket clear. I was really happy to see it was in very mint for only 9.99 they also had some red and blue GBC pockets for 16.95 mine is just a GBP not a GBC. I was going to get a game to go with it but man right now they just want to much for the old game boy stuff its unreal you can buy PSP games for less. I picked up a 3rd party AC that works for SNES and NES (Says it works with genesis, it doesnt) New for 5.46 I need one for my NES and SNES in my game room Ive been using the Famicom and Super Famicom in the living room. I got a Boxed NES game for 5.00 that looks really fun they said it was CIB but when I got it home its poster and what not was not for the game I got but on the up side to this the poster turns out to be worth more that I paid for the Game and Box in Mint shape. I picked up a genesis game Ive been wanting Thunder force II for 4.95 just cart. After Trade in I spent 14.30 My GF Picked a Tecmo Classics for the XBOX 4.64, Rayman 2 CIB 6.95 a few Disc only PS1 games and paid around the same as I did.


I cant say we picked up any thing this month from yard sales and what not the only games Ive ran across at these meets are over priced WII games


Midways Arcade Classics for the Sega Saturn 5.00 Ship, I just ordered a White Saturn Pad listed as a Genesis pad we will see how that turns out but it was only 6.00 so if it turns out as a 6 Genesis pad thats cool too. Sonic Jam import came in at the first on Sept a gift from my GF. I have a GB game on the way a Shump import for my new GBP that was less than 3.00 Ship. and thats about it from the ol ebay this month, I told you guys this was a light, light month


We have been trying to pick up GCN and PS2 games on the cheap while we still can this month we picked up some cheap gems. First Virtua Fighter 5 EVO. as a replace mine works but it wont load the 10th year extra loaded super remixed Virtua Fighter bonus game. So I got that on the low for 4.95 I also picked up just the disc of the PS2 Silent Scope for 1.95 I have the Dreamcast Port and I really like that one so why not. I got a CIB copy of Midways Greatest Arcade games Vol. 1 5.95 I had it on the GCN but it got jacked by a bastard a year or so back. I got a PS3 game for 4.95 my GF picked up Capcom Fighting Evo. for the PS2 for I think 7.95 or less I PSP game for like 7.00 and I think maybe a disc only game or 2.

So all in all its been a great month and all the great game stuff only cost around 100.00 or so for the whole month thats the price of two new WII games or the Price or a Brand New PS3 Collectors and a Guide. We would love to hear about your game finds please share in the forums or comment until next time, we will see you in the later at
