April 14, 2013 Pickup

Once again we weren’t able to make it out yesterday (our regularly scheduled program will resume next week), I knew this was coming so instead we planned to go to Lincoln with our friend to check out some places. Both flea markets we looked up were no longer in operation, which is sad because there are no flea markets here in Nebraska then. Tried going to an antique place, but it was not open yet, so we wandered around a Best Buy and a Gamers where I picked up Smash TV and Ghosts ‘n Goblins. Then in another case I found Bible Adventure and Wally bear and the No! Gang. Super excited for a great find even though most of our road trip was a bust so far.

So we moved on to some of the game stores we looked up and a few antique places.  The antique places were all busts, and the first location of another game store was a bust as well. Downtown we went to a place I knew about called Ivanna Cone, great ice cream place downtown in the Haymarket. After we went on to one more antique place which turned out to be like three in a strip mall, all busts but had some cool stuff. At the last game store was one last find which made the whole trip even better. I picked up Paperboy, Super Pitfall, Bart vs the Space Mutants, Fatal Fury 2 for Snes, a Blockbuster ’98 cheats book, and what I’m probably most excited about……Demon’s Crest for Snes.

Overall, it was a very awesome road trip we will have to make again when we have more money. Although I wish there were actually some flea markets here.


Picked up some stuff from craigslist FREE!

A guy was giving away a box of gaming stuff, Had to take the whole lot, I feel it was worth it.

First Item is this Box of Atari games, mostly 2600, but there is Pole Position II for the 7200.

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.
