Nice. Brazilian PSN accidentally listed the director's cut version for free the other day

Missed him, he closed the store early today, it's a shop out in the middle of the nowhere so it's still there (85% sure) and I'll try again tomorrow

Received an auction I won for some choose your own adventure books. I loved these as a kid. Hoping my oldest will be able to read them soon enough. I have been keeping an eye out for these at thrift stores for years, and amazingly enough I've never actually seen one in the wild. Crazy considering the series lasted nearly 200 editions and had a re-release. I paid less than $2.50 per book shipped. Anymore that's a decent price on paperbacks, and they were in like new shape.

The first (technically) Choose-Your-Adventure book I remember reading was some official Nintendo book from a local library years ago. Normally I'm not much of a book person, but I was enthralled with it.

Ah memories, I enjoyed C-Y-A books as a kid, holding your finger on your current page to 'preview' your 2 choices was fun. I'm sadly not much of a reader now, so I imagine I read more of those books than almost any other series/set/type, even text books.

Thought I had a better deal, but only so due to condition values. I probably shoulda sensed he needed money, but I couldn't pick up, and wanted it delivered. Had it for $120, than $100, than $80, but the first time I saw it, he already had 120 to 100 and it wasn't a day even lol. Anyways, at $80, I proposed fairly, $75 for the lot, and $10 for delivery. He says he's meeting a friend down here, either way, he was willing. Here's what I got:

Unfortunately, I was going to ask about the condition of nfs underground and return to castle wolfenstein, but didn't. The NFS underground game is missing the top flap to the box. Real bummer, I thought I had $50 there. $40 in return to castle wolf. and 20 games, that even at $5 a piece rounded, would be $100 profit. And I could sit at home and list lol. On a positive note, the starcraft game is the shareware version, so prob a $25 profit right there, over the regular version but the one I have listed now hasn't even sold.

Good deal, or just barely. I dunno, the flap bums me out, but half life, I just sold one locally for $22 in a lot with other things. I saw prices have gone cheaper on the original version of Half Life, but I sold the first one I had at $34 CAD + shipping on ebay minus fees. But I really don't have too much money, and I'm borrowing making deals but not selling. What's up with the economy, play some games lol

I found one of these in the back of a drawer in the fridge:

I had put it there awhile back on purpose, so that I'd find it sometime. Luckily nobody else had eaten it.

A pretty good find :)

Haven't seen that one. I have seen the main two (Totoro and Spirited) as well as a handful of others and didn't care for any.

Porco Rosso, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and Princess Mononoke are the best three, IMO, and they are a bit more mature in themes and content.

The gone with the wind part...reminded me of an incident in elementary school where we had an idea to buy tickets to a g rated movie, but sneak into an r. We bought tickets for gone with the wind, and soon found ourselves seated to see gibson's payback. As we sat down, it was starting, but I guess someone commented, because we saw a flashlight and someone that worked there asking to see our tickets. We didn't have them. Asked us to leave, I grabbed the gone with the wind tickets from the ground that were crumpled and went with. They brought us to the ushers as we said we wanted our money back. They didn't want to, but than did, but asked us to leave home numbers. I gave a fake number and my buddy noticed this, and did the same. Ended up going to glendon college with him during high school for some french thing all summer room and board for free too because the government was doing an initiative on bilingualism and my friend's ma caught wind of it and thought it would be fun, but that was enough college, cuz I couldn't hack the plan that was taking forever and going nowhere. Don't know where I'm at now, but as I'm blazin', I'm alright lol

ahh, started to want to buy console, since more gamers for that, and some pc games now taking their time selling:

- The Sims: Bustin Out - Gamecube
- Fantastic 4 - Gamecube
- NHL Hitz 2003 - Gamecube
- Kids Next Door Operation: VIDEOGAME
- NHL 06 - Gamecube
- SoulCalibur 2 - Gamecube
- Monster House - Gamecube
- NBA Live 2005 - Gamecube
- Over the Hedge - Gamecube
- Ice Age 2 - Gamecube
- Pixar Cars - Gamecube
- Spiderman 2 - Gamecube
- MVP Baseball 2005 - Gamecube
- Gamecube Composite Cables
- 1 3rd Party Controller
- GameBoy Player
- Gamecube Power Cable

*3rd Party Controller
** GameBoy Player is missing the GameBoy Player disc required to make it run.

He did have smash bros melee too but not in picture, and with melee I offered $130. He said $120, no melee. I returned with $110, he said no, someone else is coming lol. Guess I was a little weary about selling the game boy player and it not working, since he either put melee for more interest, or sold it seperately. Will be browsing more deals, and hope to post some more console deals, but really, I had to ebay price every game. It was a double up, no doubt and some prob. Guess stepping outside of your comfort zone, you gotta trust the situation, but the gamecube silver was a little beat up, so didn't know about games, who owned it, and if it all worked. I'm weary with electronics but will have to gamble, even consoles, cuz the consoles and computers I played hard on, I always bought new. Meh, back to pc games and more now haha. Another time might be the charm, really haven't done any computer work in a while, and trying to get into it isn't panning out. Just airing out for better times I guess

games were complete except: NBA '06, KND, and NHL '03 didn't have manuals. Could be buying lots up, but really trying to get a better deal. More ads for free games popping up, so the next big deal might be sooner than later. But gotta get my mojo to doing it's dojo routine...and that requires listing things out, buying and selling, contesting, and maybe smoking and singing outside just cuz it's too boring. Some people I talk to I dunno if they noticed cuz I get into my own grooves. Ha ha, these psychotropics are taking me for a ride alongside the weed

just went through the lot that I got delivered last time around, and the box and manual for return to castle wolfenstein is there, but no jewel. Also the upper flap of nfs, ripped off. Thought return was worth more, but now checked the listings, and meh, not making too many good deals of late. Just browse on my free time: contests, game deals, but don't want to do too much else. Won't even enter, and usually I don't want to pick something up cuz nothing too exciting out there. Maybe I should take a break until the first nice day of spring lol. Sounds good!

But I did find battlefield 2 earphones/headphones that are brand new never used in preorder box, opened. Didn't see it online, might be something I don't know what to price. Onto US ebay lol. Thought he had 2 copies of the game

Certainly much better than a regular tv of that era. It has a nice look to it. Chonky shadow mask.

I'm having to tinker with it a bit as there was a discolored line that popped up in the middle. Might need to degauss it. Opened it up and nothing is damaged inside thankfully.

If anyone has an Ollies Discount Store in their area I just stopped in and came home with 12 DC comics graphic novels, mostly recent stuff (court of owls, New 52 stuff) and most were around $4-7/ea.

Came home with mostly Batman and the Darwyn Cooke collection.

Great stuff

@theJaw


They had massive amounts of Marvel and DC. Half an isles worth of stuff.
