Wow that's stellar for $100. Heck, you could sell Game & Wario by itself and recoup the money you spent on it.

Yea, I haven't decided what I wanted to do with the games yet. I really wanted a Wii U for its backward comparability of Wii games and it's store is cool.

Also I want to play this game with my friends
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom

That's why I've been posting I need controllers lol

Don't get too much time to thrift these days, pretty much only on weekends. Goodwills in the area tend so send anything worthwhile to the auction house. First good score in a while:

First photo is all sealed. Was in line with the adapter and Survivor when I saw a media shelf getting wheeled out. Got the rest from it. Paid about $25 for everything.

So I went to a festival with my girlfriend yesterday late afternoon. When we got there, the library across the street was having a book sale. I didn't expect to find anything, but decided to take a look. I was hoping I'd find a couple of movies or something, had no idea I'd score these...



I'm planning on keeping most of it, as I've been wanting to pick up 3DS/Wii U games, but the stickers really bother me. Each one has library stickers/barcodes, newer stickers covering those ones, and stickers on the spine. I ended up ordering a bottle of un-du off Amazon. Hoping I'm able to at least improve most of these!

Feel/felt like an old time trucker. 3.5 hours each way, all for what you ask, some games and software

what I noticed is the 2 windows, the lotr battle for middle earth collector's edition in box (albeit you could see some creases on it) and witch king expansion. There are other software, other games, some collector's edition. Don't expect to get rich, but wasn't going to do it until driver said sure. Bought the meals on the way but prob owe a nice dinner for gas. Onto some other finds

https://imgur.com/a/G1VkgVR

oh yeah, was $20, after going all that way, I still gave a 4 and something coffee card too since it was the best lot I saw in a long while. Gotta relax

Now I ebayed some games, and realized most aren't worth as much. Thought it would be a bigger box with all the games, what I got, and thought the games were big boxes. I don't know why I thought this. Things and proportions aren't usually a strong point since my drifting thoughts try to catch on something new. But yeah, see some other deals. Will inquire in my free time if they can be shipped. Not travelling anymore lol. Like that gob song, I want to jump in a lake, sun shining down on the beach in the summer...than at the end a mouthful of insects lol.

Haven't looked through it. Will in time. Guess I might be surprised still cuz I still can't read from pics what's there, but I dunno. Whatever. It's done

@tarzanpat If you have all the discs, the Lord of the Rings Battle for Middle Earth 2 games i see in your pics are good money. You've got ~100 bucks in those 2 games alone if complete.

hey, that I know, have around $100 for the collector's edition BIG BOX. Some collector's are the oversized dvd versions, but still have to look at condition value. Can't ask top dollar. witch king should turn up a $30 or $35 profit maybe. I also have the windows 7 with vista ultimate, that's $100.

But when I saw it, I don't know if I was dreaming, but I was like, there's around $200, and all those games, In Big Boxes, when I got the box, I figured it out, but gotta look more closely lol. I know big box older games are rare, these games, I'll prob leave to sell online locally. Prob not even worth to list the stronghold games alone, I figured if in big box, there's some game comparable to age of empires, maybe a few bucks more, here and there. Prob will get over $400 in value, but prob not sell it all if all there. Still, it'll be some more stuff to list out and dangle. They can always get rare in the process and/or I can do someone a favour and sell a big lot and have someone else sort through it lol

I'll know and post any spoilers when I go through it. Prob no new/sealed games, but I can't read it all from the pics, and have it in a box lol. But I was hoping for like $500 in value. Might not reach it. If not, I'm left with a lot of games. Won't replay any of them, but def need a better hobby for life. Either way, it's kinda fun. Keeps me defused riding round occasionally getting a deal, and also full in terms of feeling like I'm doing something. The world, it's designed in such a way to keep you finite and small. If we were to be behaviourly strategized upon to get everyone in a line, and anyone else A BIG NO. Smoking weed, having fun, can't have that. Regress in this world and do work for free to be graded and stickered. Life ain't too serious. Just take it ez and have a good time lol

some more pics of it all, and will post bummer at the end...

seem to have a smoke scent, prob cuz of someone smoking lol. No worries, it'll air out prob

AND...Battle for Middle Earth II Collector's doesn't have the jewel, discs, whatever...ahh. Might be a $40 bone for the box and contents if...compared to selling it at $120 as I initially thought on ebay, and make about $100. Prob would've been a quick sell, browsed through the windows programs, and they are there. Browsed some other games. BUT OBVIOUSLY NOT THE HIGH VALUE ITEM...&#$&*(#$ lol

will still make some profit, but it def kissed more profit out of here

Update: The Battle for Middle Earth II Box and contents...well, it's worth more than $40. Either way, was browsing ebay today, and noticed someone had it listed, the game and jewel, for a pretty retail price, but I thought I could avoid shipping and get it. Got it for $35. Local buys aren't the same as going a bits way. But either way, it's complete, and I will more than likely list it at $200 on ebay. Seems it's at $350 for a better condition box and no manual with cd key to the game, but he's saying it's complete. Will see, might get a taker.

Thankfully I grabbed one of the two they had in-stock grin I'll keep my Best Buy in-store pickup (May 5th) for now, just in case someone here is unable to get one and needs it.

I feel like this is my first ever find of the week post. I don't typically hunt anymore, but I like tinkering with broken systems. Bought a Sega CD model 1 set from ebay in non working condition. The seller said they couldn't get the CD section to power on. Usually, this is a suspect fuse or blown component on the board near the power input. However, in this case, the contacts on the Genesis expansion bay just needed a good cleaning. When I powered it on, to my utmost surprise, this game popped out:

https://offerup.com/item/detail/1219759999

Thankfully the seller did a really good packing job and the disc is in very good shape. I sent the seller a picture and asked where they had acquired the games they were selling. Apparently she is clearing out most of her husbands old gear from the basement. Looking back at some of her sold listings, Neo Aes games, Duo, PC Engine, Saturn, and Dreamcast.

My driver did me a favor and picked up the battle for middle earth II collector's by herself. I just looked at it, and it's got a alarm stickers on the front insert. Should have suspected something, but whatever, got some issues, but selling as a set lol

Now I found on facebook marketplace, for $100 THIS:

https://imgur.com/a/sc2TymJ

But I offered $80. Was going to take me 2 hours to go and walk there, but wanted a walk and smoke. He lived even further, and just worked there, so got it delivered. Just wanted the walk, not that it's such a good deal lol. The main things are the one unit whole blood jewel case, and resident evil 2 platinum jewel case. Also noticed desperados 2 in box, and it's got a hefty price tag, the person that has another copy on ebay now. The rest of the games, not sure what I'll do with them. Prob try to sell locally. $80 and delivered, not bad. Got more games lol

Yeah, seems like I'm in a nursery rhyme mirage sometimes, and sometimes I get out of this picture and enjoy life. But def starting to think life would be better with a good group of friends that you could just stay friends with. Oh well, have smoking buddies, and I do sometimes sing and talk to myself. Get high and try to change the world. Talked about buses with a secluded driver seat and passengers could smoke and socialize. No way they'd do it on roads for other drivers to see haha, but maybe, but I got to see Canna advertising buses that are green right after. Maybe I'm not that crazy, but I just find you're good company too. Maybe sometimes better, cuz you gotta half brain yourself with others, but in this world, you gotta stay free. I don't feel free, I feel in a routine. But I do have some contentment for it, and yeah, it's my mom haha. Just don't always feel like saying mother.

Still a chain smoking

Try to keep it mum, but when evolution and the everchanging universe are at play, it's hard to stop and do nothing even if the world is asking this of you. Will keep it cleaner and more concise. I don't write on paper, but keep a life diary where I'm at out loud in the world. But I've always been a loud mouth online before, guess it's in the brain lol.

Ramblings, dumplings, the comb lings, right off your head and you get whiplash from seeing the same thing. Gotta love yourself, we can all focus and defuse by the complaining of others. We're all human, let's get to living lol

Absolute banger of a day going to yard sales. This is why I wake up at 7am:

image
Big bin of Legos was $25.

image
Kneepads are new and $5, hat was $2. DSi and games were $40. Lady let me know somebody already grabbed the GBA, I guess they looked at the DS and didn't see Pokemon hidden in the case.

image

Stopped in at a sale and saw a few 360 controllers for sale. Asked if she had any other video game stuff. Mentioned she had a PS3 that she hadn't brought out yet. Was asking $40, but got her to toss in the ski boot bag as well (was asking $5). Then I asked if she had any games.

"We do but my husband is just going to take them to Gamestop."

I offer her cash of whatever Gamestop is offering so she goes in and brings out a box. Tells me $3 each:

image
image
Grabbed all of these for $40. All complete. For some reason Wind Waker had a second disc-only copy inside so that was a nice bonus. Probably should have asked if they had any more Gamecube games.

For maybe the first time in like 5 years I found a bunch of vintage Star Wars Kenner stuff. About 20 figures with a two complete vehicles, a battled damaged X-Wing and a battle damaged Tie-Fighter. The figures were missing their weapons but the best one in the bunch was Paploo who is one of the Ewoks and one of the notorious "last 17" figures in the set. If anyone collects out there, message me if you're interested.

FYI EA games from that era sometimes included a blank page with a security alarm sticker, or sometimes even had it stuck on the front insert in a jewel case. So it's not unusual.

I haven't been going to the flea market as much since I'm having money issues, there's been no ebay sales lately and I've been clearing out everything I want to list here next week, but I did find a Fujifilm USB cable for a camera I picked up a month ago. That cost me $1. It isn't glitching out like the camera I've been using for years now.

So...I bought a claw machine at the Midwest Gaming Classic. I was there for work and my wife and kids were there. My wife came over and said, "I think the girls would like a crane machine." I took it from there and bid on it at the auction. I think I'm going to retheme it to Toy Story.

After winning I filled it up and put it on freeplay for the rest of the show. My coworkers were impressed by the traffic it brought over, so they ordered one to retheme. We'll be taking it to our future shows.

You actually bought a claw machine? Awesome! I can't stop myself from smiling. Who wouldn't want an actual claw machine?

How strong is the claw's gripping strength?

There are two dial adjustments for grip strength. One is for the initial grab and the second if for hold.
