To be fair, the last one they did was DQV on the DS. Nintendo's been publishing them all in the US since.

Hrm... hard to say, but I would guess you paid close to value. The only one I've seen was $130, and didn't sell. There was a newer one, a Super Color Volley X, that sold for about $70 shipped...

Pretty cases, but if I start buying for some of my games, I'll want for all of them. And THAT would cost too much! Besides, I have a stockpile of cases for DS/3DS as well as PSP and Vita games. (Then again, when I redo them, I may need more, also...)

Those are games for a weird system known as the Watara Supervision. Same is true for the Super Block cart in the middle.

I can confirm my store got to 30% off on Lego, though I'll also mention that it was completely ransacked at just 10%. If you want a few pieces cheap, though, watch the Toys to Life section- a lot of the Lego figures there (in the small kits- ~30 pieces or so) made it to 80% off.

It'll vary from store to store. Mine is already closed, but I did get some video games at 60% off. Consoles never got discounted at mine, though, since they sold them all before it was announced the whole chain was closing. (When I was there at a 30% gaming discount, I actually saw a New 3DS sell without discount.) Granted, the margin on consoles means that they're probably already losing money at just 5% off.

Oddly enough, some of the best deals came up about a week before closing. This is when the fixtures get moved, and things get found behind or under them. I managed to get a wireless NES Classic controller for $7.50 (70% off) this way.

While I agree with the sentiment, if I had the money and saw a sealed copy of Stadium Events for that price, I'd jump on it! I don't think it's worth that, but the market will pay me more for it...

Crunching more numbers, I think on a good day, he might be able to net $100K for it. And that's a good day with the right buyer. (I'm dubious of that NWC eBay link- while it says sold, did it actually get paid?)

What makes me laugh is the average price per game: just shy of $8000 each. I don't think there are 1000 games in the world worth that sealed...

Edit: Looking at his system list, it's even funnier! No game there is $8000, and I think you'd struggle to hit 10 games at $800 each...

The one I sold was Rock Boshers DX for PS4. Not exactly hard to find or expensive, but it does appear to be a thing, as seen here:

I just got a return request stating that I sold him a bootleg game; he didn't even have to open the seal to know. I'm thinking he's looking for a free return, or is planning on switching my copy with his own bootleg.

It's very rare in gaming in general. I do think Kanji in P4 is closeted and still coming to terms with it. (I do wish the latter games in the series would allow a same-sex romantic relationship with at least one character, but...) There was also some talk of one of the later Fire Emblem games having some, but I know it was confirmed they were removed from localization. (Serenes Forest states that in Fates, your avatar can marry Rhajat or Niles regardless of gender.) I want to say that there was also a deeply buried hint about Ike and Soren in Radiant Dawn, that to view, required an A support imported from PoR, and an A support in RD. Something that most people wouldn't ever see...

Even buried deep in games, there's nothing much more I know of. Sure, fanfiction and the like can connect those lines, but they don't actually exist. I think it's a case of pandering to the common denominator. Poking around, though, reveals more than I thought. Rather than regurgitating, see https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_themes_in_vid...

I actually found a semi-local store that had a decent selection of Saturn games, and the sports were all priced at $2-3 each. I bought up all the good case ones...

Oh, on a completely unrelated note, can someone tell me if this link works:

I believe for me, it's Virtual Bowling on the VB. Hard to find it now for under $1000. Then there's ones others here have mentioned: PDS, Aero Fighters... After that is another few: Snatcher, Zelda's Adventure, Clay Fighters Sculptor's Cut... Now I'm wondering if I have any other gems...

Regretfully, yes. I did get the JP exclusive already. (The last US title for me to get is World Series Baseball.) But seeing what people are paying for repros of DarXide, I may have to reside to not bothering with those...
