Comment:

My 'wanted' list is very limited, but don't let that discourage trading with me. If you want to trade for something on my list, I'm more then willing to take a look at your 'available' games and dvds to accommodate a trade. Just so you know, I'm currently most interested in offline co-op 360 games.

Special

So I was cleaning out my closet and came across something I can't really classify. It is a box for the C64 game: X-men - Madness in Murderworld. Unfortunately the contents do not look like the game. Inside includes: Infiltrator II instructions manual, Julius Erving and Larry Bird Go One-on-One instruction manual, American Educational Computer user's manual, Kraft Two Port Multi-Speed Programmable Joystick Adapter Card user's guide and Kraft Programmable softward diskette. I'm guessing an X-men collector would like the box, but I'll include the rest of the items as well.
