Maybe it's more of a once every 6 months kind of thing, instead of once a month?

Mostly so everyone has time to replenish stock

What can I say, some of us are just masochists ...

I think there is some level of appeal to actually getting your hands on games that you never even saw in the real world when you were a kid ... so it's one step beyond nostalgia, it's almost more like trying to prove a myth.

At least that's part of what drives my TG and Neo Geo collections ...

That, and some day I'll be able to sell them for enough for a down payment on a house ... that will have space for all the games that I sold to buy it. It's a real gift of the magi situation I'm backing myself into here.

So, I'm thinking about just having my pay checks deposited directly into your checking account going forward to save us the hassle on things... I'm going to need you to PM me your account and routing numbers when you have a chance.

I like bookoff too, but you're right, their prices got insane, like all of a sudden. They're good for random cheap imports, that are basically blind buys. Spend $10 on a random SS import because it's got an insane cover and see what you get ...

J & L is actually still around ... they moved up to 33rd I think ... just south of Bryant Park.

Their prices went up with the move though

I dont think so. There were a bunch of basement games stores in Chinatown, but back before I got enough into collecting to really appreciate what they had to offer.

I'm sure there were others, but most of them are just gone now.

There is one basement store left that I know of, it's a bunch of guys that used to work/own Manhattan's only Play N Trade. They also moved to St Marks for like a year or so, as an independent business after they got out of PNT as 8-Bit and Up. They are now closer to 2nd ave and Soho... by far a much better store to be in. The guys that run it are chill, and the prices are reasonable. If anyone here is ever in the city, that should be a must visit (and then walk over to VGNY and marvel at their insane selection and prices)

Pretty sure VGNY is still around. They like to casually post on facebook when they break street dates ... like with Arms

Then you wouldn't recognize it in 2017 ...

For example, you might remember St. Mark's Games .... one of Manhattan's few retro gaming stores. It was a long, narrow mess of a store (I can't even remember if I should call it over priced because I was too broke and in college to buy anything of real value). They are still around, just a few blocks over, and in a bigger space, and renamed VideoGamesNewYork (and, at this point in my life, I can assure you, they are overpriced).

Same owners as the other ones in the city (and else where in the quad-state area ... apparently there's one in New Haven now) ... the ones throughout the city seem to have an unstated theme to them. The original one in Williamsburg is the old school-est of the bunch, Chelsea has more multi-player games (NBA Jam, Turtles, Simpsons, etc), and St. Marks has the most fighting games (and possibly the only neo geo of the bunch). That one has been down there for a couple of years, and when it isn't overrun with NYU kids, it's probably the best dive bar-y of the bunch. Williamsburg is the best bar to just hang out in when it isn't overrun by hipsters (although I think they only have beer), and Chelsea kinda sucks, unless it's the middle of the day - it's always just packed. Good tots though.

If I remember correctly, the answer is yes. That model had a game installed on the hardware (I want to say it was something like Hang on or something), but it's one of the few systems, particularly of that generation, to come with an on-board pack-in. For some reason, I thought you had to hold down buttons at boot to launch it, but maybe it just works if there's no cartridge in the slot ... I've never owned a Master System to test though

What DiamondDave said... I backed it because it looked interesting, and because they were going to do a limited run on real carts. It looked rather impressive, like a late release nes game. I think if you like Dizzy and other Oliver Twins games then it might be something you'd like. But ya, check out the site and the footage and let me know if it's something you might be interested in

I would imagine that since this was such a limited run, they will be worth significantly more some day

Like ... 3 outta 10... I'm in a weird place where I can't bring myself to collect Wii games... I was still kinda thinking about it, because I dont know who else is going to come along interested in that guide ... but it can go for a decent number on ebay (especially if it's with the game) ... but as a stand alone, it's pretty much on par with the game, so it's a perfectly fair trade, it's just like I look at all my wii games and the couple of shelves they take up and just think, meh...

Clearly, I'm procrastinating at work...
