Those Oral-B ones are pretty nice, but the 'basic' ones are only like $30 I think. Wife and I both have them and we like them. Oduomega's is fancy for sure

Holy smokes

got a brand new sealed Duke Nukem 3D Atomic Edition. In jewel case. That's like a bill right there. Also spotted nocturne (seattle goodwill is keeping this low lol), first quake - didn't check value, noticed some other sealed games, but when I pulled it out, that and nocturne, oh and space bunnies must die too but cd or cds only, I checked value. ----> from the $125 lot in the picture, checking around, reading the titles, and checking/pulling out the ones without a clear name

finally a score..don't know if I have the energy to start sorting today

no sold listings, guess I'll get closer to $75, but off one, that's the best one in there. Might be wrong, deer hunter 5 is sealed, but I take it that game is one that people play not collect sealed unless I'm mistaken, so might be like $5 more for the joy of opening lol. don't play, but still like to see and remind myself what games are out there.

only sealed game that is known and has more than 1 active listing is mechwarrior 2 mercenaries, but the seal is coming off in the back. Just browsing games, instead of making a list, I came here to post. Tomorrow is going to be a better day, today: back to relaxing lol

Any chance you know what Drowned God should sell for now. I seen a google search of around $30 + shipping on ebay, and a new boxed copy for $80, but since there are none online, I don't know if I'm listing it too cheap. Only one, charge the moon but no.

Also, Shattered Galaxy for pc, new and sealed in box. I didn't see one listed, and figured no one has one, but I come to gametz and I see an old ad up for $8. Think it's overpriced...If you can man, would appreciate it. Thanks and all the best in 2021 and beyond

You seem to know your stuff, tomorrow the list and prices get done, the weekend is listing time lol

Is this the game? https://www.ebay.com/itm/154597943591

And Shattered Galaxy seems to have been an MMO. By Nexon. Which means they probably killed it a decade ago.

Edit: Well fudge me, looks like they're still running it? https://www.sgalaxy.com/index.html

Yeah, that's the one, and it comes just like that. I guess with my $20 or so shipping to ship tracked media, I'll ask $70 on ebay for it and prob get a sale as it's obscure. Won't ask for more just cuz maybe someone rich is trying to play it. Appreciate the find. Thanks!

- ps, I got this from the lot too, so this is 2nd best to the Duke Nukem atomic, but might prove a hard sell as I only see a sold Italian box version for $40 or so + shipping.

And yeah, Shattered Galaxy is a MMO. Long time ago, I bought the game for 1 dollar, and saw a couple of used ones before, don't remember the price, but it wasn't much, but it's been going so long and people from back there were like, this is awesome, I figure I can ask something. Another week or so until I change my firm prob too high price to best offer too.

wow, that's a lot of skimming. On another look around, I found gamesharks 2vs2 and something else for both ps1 and ps2. also Mortal Kombat 2 for pc. Also Shape Shifter for turbo duo. I see them pretty high, and don't know what to price a cd only of this. some other goodies, but Need For Speed Underground 2 is missing a disc. Guess I can still make around $10 for 1 disc and case if someone needs it but will prob take a while. don't know if I skimmed it right, oh yeah, also a sampler of playstation demos.

There were about 5 games really missing discs, and I couldn't tell on 2 collections if the discs are really the discs, or something else. 5 copies, said no copies, but only 5, I'll let it be and not even mention it. There was a time I was into wares lol.

lots more to go through. I was a kid digging up stuff and going, what's this, and think I found all if not most of the interesting stuff. The pile for less than $10 but not in the $1 or $2 local bin locally later either was biggest, than the crap, than the $10 and more pile. But most of it is there. It happens when you buy this amount, people that sell at these prices won't know if it's all there, but they'll assume, and I don't blame them, got more goodies. Woot woot. Hope you all find some scores, this might not be that huge of one, but it is a lot of fun to go through. Though I could've started on the list researching games. Gotta have some fun lol

but the crap and $10 isn't too much dif. Got some stuff outside of my range too, and not total crap. Focus on the positives and find some more goodies!...tomorrow

Exchange centers usually don't take change up here, so I got lots of random change.

I did some more searching through my last lot, and tallied up 49 games that are $10 or more. Some more, some will prob be a $1 or $2 under the $10 mark in profit. Than I tallied up 36 games for $5 and more. I got over 250, so the list of $1 and $2 or maybe I'll do it more specifically, but I didn't think I'd make that much in this lot. Some real gems, found another copy and another game or two that wasn't complete, didn't have all the cds or was missing game code to play. I'm going to be posting today probably all the $10 + stuff and forgo on making the list, as the other stuff really doesn't interest me, but I gotta sort it out sooner than later or else I'll have a mess in my room lol, since I browsed the game more than twice pretty thoroughly and might have missed something, but nothing too big I'm sure.

Sorry for posting, just trying to get motivated and writing it seems like it enhances or makes it more real, and I gotta do it as starting the next month, I've already spent all the surplus so will be starting with a big fat 0. Lol, this definitely does help. Anyways, time for others to share finds, won't bother anymore with this one, unless someone is interested in something I mentioned, I can give you my ebay username but can do cheaper off ebay by at least 15%. Thx FoxHack again, you netted me around $35 as it would have sold for sure for the $30 or so + shipping I was going to list out one of the games cuz I found a way old finished price listings. Gotta make these months memorable before winter frosts us up and we go in and out, warm up by the heaters and drink hot cocoa lol.

Try volunteering at your local stores. Let them know you as a person instead of a nice customer. I've known the lady working there for over ten years, we used to work together.

Also this hookup is just dumb luck because the guy they used to save the stuff for stopped answering his phone.

That was me. They had a standalone for black friday in 2009 or 2010 and those were what was left, about 10-12 of them. I sold them all for msrp on amazon. Should have kept at least one, but honesty they suck to play on, my hands cramp up because its so small.

So earlier this summer I was introduced to a neighbor whose son died last year from COVID. He collected various things over the years and I helped her organize, price and liquidate some of those items to area collectors.

Today, we finally went through his small video game collection and I was able to buy what I wanted. There were a lot of low end titles in the lot but the best items included CIB copies of Pokemon Blue, Wild Arms 2, Breath of Fire 3 and Alundra.

The thing I kept thinking about going through his stuff was that we had very similar tastes and, if we had known each other, we probably would've been pretty good friends.

Funny story: I was putting gas in my car and went to leave when I realized my grocery bag I hang off my shifter was getting full of garbage. I tied it off and went to throw it out in the trash by the pump and when I looked in, it looked like someone forklifted everything out of their backseat and dumped it all in the trash. This was sitting on top. I assumed it was garbage and didnt work but decided what's the harm in sanitizing it and giving it a test. Sure enough, the thing works great. both earpieces and the microphone function. I looked it up and it's a budget headset (around $55) but free is free.

The other day I stopped at an antique shop with my girlfriend. She and I visited this place a few years ago. It was this incredibly large area with LOADS of stuff. Old Coca-Cola machines, lots of old gas signs, tons of comics, records, nicknacks. Just a really cool place. Well, they were hit hard by Covid and downsized drastically. The store was literally halved, with dividers blocking the rest of the store. It was very slim picking around there. There was only one video game related item in the entire shop, and I bought it...

I had never heard of this until I saw it in person. I'm not typically one to collect video game toys like this, but it's a unique little game, and it's in great shape!

That's awesome! Glad to see it was a childhood memory of someone here. I probably would have really liked this as a kid as well. It's fun to fiddle with now. The way Pac-Man's mouth opens and closes, and you can hear the click, it's just a satisfying little toy. smile

I found a copy of the PAL version of Pandora's Tower on eBay. It was $40 with free shipping, and came with the manual and everything. The corner of the box read like the above photo: "Not to be sold separately," indicating that it came from the Limited Edition and not a store shelf. I was hoping to finish assembling my Limited Edition boxset, so I sat on the eBay listing, waiting for my parents to inquire about my Christmas list. I then checked up on it. To my horror, someone else swooped in and bought it during my complacency; twas the wrong move.

Now needing a new gift request for Christmas, I searched for any other copy. In minutes I'd found a Mercari listing for the photo above. Great condition, everything included, free shipping, and it even had the printing in the lower corner for authenticity. I couldn't let it go a second time; 15 people were watching it. The $65 price tag made me mull it over for a night, but I'm willing to contribute to the price so my family doesn't have to carry the whole expenditure.

So after six years, my PT Limited is finally complete! Huzzah!

:) I'd say you made the right choice buying it.

When you know you're looking for something (easy to find or not) if you can afford to buy it, go for it. Not worth the disappointment of someone else snatching it up while contemplating.

Agreed!!! More often than not, when I'm contemplating something that might be pricey but is hard to find and I want it, it's gone before I actually come to a decision :(

It's better to just buy that sucker (if the funds allow)...you'll be happy you did in the end.

Absolutely. It's so true. Those instances where you don't buy something you wanted, it gets snatched out of your hands, and then you keep thinking about it until you're willing, perhaps even happy, to pay more than the one that got away, just for peace of mind. Better to just buy it the first time, if you are able. Like you said, you'll be glad you did. 100%

Found a binder of games at the thrift store for $40. All disc only, but taking a few to Gamestop for 50% extra credit and should break even on just those. Also included were DragonBall Z: Raging Blast 2, Resident Evil 3, and Ape Escape. Latter two will need to be resurfaced.

I was able to piece together a decent PSVR set from local stores for a little over $200. Paid $111 for the PSVR v2 headset with cables, $35 for the PS4 controller, $50 for the Move controllers w/charging stand, $5 for Astro Bot and $10 for the case. Not too bad overall.

Man I tried the ps4 vr and wished I was playing on a TV after 5 minutes, vr probably needs another 10 years to improve

I grabbed the Player's Choice version of Donkey Kong Country 3's box for a cool $29 total. It's in prestine condition overall, there was no bidder competition whatsoever, and the game's shipping from only a few towns away to boot! I've got the manual already ($8), so my complete edition has only cost $37 so far! I'm loving that gold and turquoise palette on this confirmed classic!

On a sidenote, does anyone here have a Player's Choice DKC3 game cartridge? Or the inserts and cardboard tray? If so, hit me up.

The Oculus Quest 2 will make you feel differently about VR. Zero cables anywhere, pretty comfortable overall.

The only thing it's missing (all VR's are missing) is a better games library. But in all honesty, it's almost refreshing to have a small library for a system raspberry I tend to focus more on individual games this way (like when we were kids and owned 4 NES games vs 600 raspberry). What's interesting too is how much VARIETY there is in the games! Devs are amazing at doing what they do on this kit.

Seriously...the Oculus Quest 2 is the most incredible piece of tech I own (and I own ALOT of tech), and it's only $300.

Nester was $69 total, Virtual League was $37 total. No one bidded against me either time, just like DKC3's box from yesterday. Man, I've been killing it on eBay (and my wallet, but just ignore that)!

I know toilet paper was scarce last year, but to resort to using a VB cart is crazy. That crap is hard. At least use a sock

Looks like someone got ahold of a pack of tournament deck boxes for the Accel World Weiss Schwartz prerelease thingy some card shops do.

Anyone else ever have dreams where they're in a thrift store or something similar and stumble upon a bunch of amazing gaming finds? I had one last night for the first time in a while. It's always such a bummer when you wake up and realize it was just a dream lol.

I have had those kinds of dreams a lot. Mainly from the past and passing on so many games that nobody really seemed to like twenty years ago. In my dream I usually can tell its a dream but one the things that happens to me is you can never find a price. Then the items seem to change as I pick them up and want to pay. Kinda like a CD turns into a Shaq fu cartridge. I just wake missing games they don't make anymore and mostly animals that I have lost I the last two decades. Waking up and realizing they aren't lying next to you that's the worst part of all it.

decided to browse again and saw someone selling new pc games, for $60. I inquired, said 4 people replied but I was the first to confirm pick up, so if I promised to pick them up, they're mine.

Will make a list just for myself, didn't fully sort the last pile due to interruptions and now have this to list out: NEW PC GAMES:

shift 2 unleashed limited edition, 007 quantum of solace, turning point fall of liberty, velvet assassin, wall e has sealed ripped off but top sticker in tact,darksiders with free soundtrack and digital comic, harry potter and the deathly hallows part1, the club, star trek online, blur, borderlands, code of honor compilation, devil may cry 4 is opened, the saboteur, sam & max beyond time and space, champions online, tom clancy's hawx, split second, necrovision, dead space 2, kane & lynch dead men is opened, john woo presents stranglehold, dawn of war chaos rising, Raven Squad, Moto GP 08 is opened, star wars the clone wars republic heroes is opened, the incredible hulk, infernal, onimusha 3 demon siege, the godfather II, code of honor 3 desperate measures, assassin's creed, tomb raider anniversary, battlestrike western and eastern front,age of conan hyborian adventures, sniper art of victory, flatout ultimate carnage is opened, wanted weapon of fate, saints row 2, space siege, alone in the dark...

now that I made a list, I don't know if I made such a good deal, cuz I think he met up and sold some games before and added some other ones. Is this a tactic, am I going underwater on this? Will do the work later, but noticed brink, need for speed hot pursuit II, duke nuken forever and bioshock 2...I dunno if I should be pissed or if it was still an alright deal considering it was only $60. Duke Nukem Forever would have made that up by itself. The other dude was probably relentless...I swiped in on a deal before, so guess it's a bit of karma.

I'm not super knowledgeable on pc games but if you got all that for $60 there's no way that's a bad deal.
