generous friends, a bit of luck, and not much money at all, I've managed to amass a pretty large sum of goodies in the last couple of weeks. Be sure to look through the gallery for more pics.
First, I was given
a Nintendo DS from fellow (incredibly awesome!)
, who graciously passed on her original handheld when she came into possession of a DS Lite. This is actually my first portable console since I got a lime green Game Boy Color back in '98!
Just mere days later, I get a package in the mail. My friend returned my entire
loaned-out GameCube collection, albeit later than I expected. Also inside, much to my surprise, was their old Wii
, as well as accessories and games!
Completely by chance, I happened to find a picture from a decal website
that had a set of patterns that I couldn't resist. Having just acquired a DS and Wii for free, I just had to splurge; the pictures will let you know why:
What? Your NINTENDO WII is evolving!
Congratulations! Your NINTENDO WII evolved into a REVOLUTION ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM!
I can't get over how well the retro DS and Wii skins look together.
I was interested in several titles from Joe's long list of games for sale
after he decided to thin out his collection for personal reasons. Being the complete action-genre addict
that I am, I couldn't pass on a large portion of his stock, plus a few extras, for a reasonable price!
Joe was completely honest in his descriptions of the games, carefully listing each (very minor)
nick or dent to the extent of a professional collector. Being used to GameStop-condition boxes and not-very-accurate Ebay descriptions, I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised at how precise his descriptions were; each game was in amazing shape, and every superfluous scuff was already mentioned.
Sneak King, Too Human, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath, Otogi, Bujingai, Chaos Legion, Crimson Tears, Drakengard 1-2, Samurai Legend: Musashi, MGS: VR Missions, Zelda: Twilight Princess, Zelda: OoT
If you're interested in any of his games, definitely send him a message. He's quick to reply, very honest, accepts very reasonable prices, and ships almost instantly. Good luck, Joe!
If you don't know about this
, you should definitely check things out. I was able to score Prince of Persia in excellent condition for $12; less than two weeks ago it was $35! Depending on the store, you may find tons of classic PS2 and Xbox games for 50% off.
Thanks to a $50 gift card
I had lying around, I was able to pick up a huge stash of games without paying much at all!
Bionic Commando, Prince of Persia, Castlevania: Lament of Innocence, LotR: The Two Towers, Mega Man X1-8, Shinobi, Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven/Fatal Shadows, House of the Dead 2&3, Tenchu: Shadow Assassins
I'm registered, booked, and ready to go. I can't wait to see everyone there!
