Every Saturday the girlfriend, another friend and I go out to a few local stores and take a look at what they have before coming back and playing games the rest of the night. We’ve been doing this for about a month or two now. It really makes our weekends fun.
Here is what I picked up this week:
I started with a NES Game Genie at out first stop, $10 and with all the NES games we have it seemed worth it. Everyone else in town wants $17.
After that I dropped off some of Tuesdays haul at a goodwill down the street, all those phone chargers and misc cables. Following that we headed over to our next stop,where I picked up a Dreamcast Rumble Pack, Adventure Island for the NES, and a complete in box G-Loc Air Battle for Game Gear.
Following that we moved on further down the road to Gamers, where I traded in the misc av cables and games I chose not to keep from Tuesdays Haul.
Done with all of our normal stops, we headed on home, stopping at CD Tradepost along the way. Here I grabbed Laser Invasion for the NES, Bionic Commando for the original Gameboy, and three copies of Atari 2600 ET for 84 cents each bringing my total number of ET carts up to six. For those who don’t know, I’m collecting Atari 2600 ET carts.
A guy was giving away a box of gaming stuff, Had to take the whole lot, I feel it was worth it.
There was also a Commodore Vic 20 in the box, with some Vic 20 books.Not sure if the Commodore works, but I intend to find out soon.
There was a dreamcast in the bin as well, Controller works fine so now I have two, Console powerson but wont read disks. Been looking at fixes online so I’ll try one of those soon, they require a multi meter.
Got a ps2/ps3/pc Steering Wheel. Which I can’t quite get to work right now, I need to grab a multi meter and check the power cord. From research it’s either that died or the force feedback motor whatever died which means it’s trash.
Got a bunch of random controllers, a couple good ones and a few broken third party ones (trash). Sold the 4 Atari 5200 controllers to a guy and made some money.
Got some random games as well. I’m keeping some and selling the rest. There’s also a broken Gameboy Color (Screen Smashed) and Gameboy Advance SP (looks like water damaged) in there. Also a couple PS1 memory cards, some compact flash cards.
Here is some more random junk (not all pictured here). There is a working V Smile childrens learning console with two controllers and two games, A Crayola Coloring Plug and Play thing, A Space Invaders Plug and Play (Keeping This One), A Space Invaders handheld (Keeping this if it works), RC battery charger, Broken Atari Lightgun, Random TV remotes, Random Cellphone Chargers, Couple old Headphones, Wii AV Cable, two PS1/2 Power Cables, three PS1/2 AV Cables, Some Music Router, Some kind of switch, a few coax cables, a laser mouse, There’s even some kind of collectible card game here.
Even got a few comic books.
I plan to take some of the things I don’t want to goodwill, and some of them are going to go to the local game store.
Picked up a almost CIB Japanese Vampire Savior for Sega Saturn for $50.
(Going back tonight to see if the have the 4mb Ram Cart missing from the box lying around somewhere. probably didn’t know it went with, I didn’t til I looked it up after buying.)
There are just some things I would not normally go looking for or ever want, but when I see them in a store in person I just have to have them. This is one of those things.
Edit: Got the 4mb Ram Cart free. Was misplaced off to the side from being bought in seperatly. So This is now CIB like it should be.
