I never buy anything with plans on reselling, but I do hunt for deals and try not to pay Ebay prices for anything unless I absolutely must have something. I have sold off games before, and always regretted it, so I've learned to just hold on to most things. If only I still had all the consoles and games I've owned throughout the years...

My latest pick up, though for a retro system I dunno if it's retro, it's to be released.

Summon Night 5

When worlds collide and everything is turned upside-down, a new order must be created to keep chaos at bay. BandaiNamco’s Summon Night 5 is the continuing story of that order-keeping society, the Eucross, and the adventures their Summoners have keeping their world and the disparate races from the Otherworlds in balance. Players can choose to experience the story as rookie Summoners Folth or Arca, and one of four possible partners (their “Cross”), giving the game’s dialogue and feel a unique flavor on up to eight different playthroughs.

Let's see...

Some decent deals there, Aaron. NES controller for $6 is great. I bought one recently and it must have been twice that. (Tip: take it apart and clean it. You'll find years of grime and some kind of brown, rust like substance, especially on the d-pad and rubber pads. Use 90% alcohol and q-tips.) I'd go back and grab that Mario Kart 64 for $45 and hold on to it. N64 stuff is really big right now because all the kids who had it as their first system suddenly want it again.

I never buy anything to resell. It seems a little dumb to me to complain about it, then admit to doing it yourself.

iTurn, you're in luck because I actually know what Summon Night is. I had no idea they made 5 of them. Probably more than that. Is it in English? I may have to check it out if it is. I played a bit of Summon Night 2 on a GBA emulator. It was good but it didn't catch my interest much. That series is AWFUL to be a fan of here, because it's pretty big in Japan but not here, and a lot of the games weren't localized. I'm pretty sure the first one was a strategy RPG for PSone? I'm pretty sure it was never in English and doesn't have a fan patch. It's a damn shame, out of all the ones in the series, that interested me the most. The Summon Night 2 on GBA was just a generic action RPG.

I'm playing Tales of Xillia as I type this, I got a PS3 recently and all the Tales Of games I missed. Tales is an equally bad series to be an English speaking fan of.

On another note, this:





Might wanna think twice about buying retro games from Gamestop online...just a heads up.

Yea he did get some deals there, so jealous of his Onimusha copy!!!

I don't plan to do it, but if I come across a cheap copy of a game and I know it's worth something I'll pick it up, this has yet to happen though tongue.gif

Yep it's in english done by Gaijin Works, the physical game is going to be hard to get a hold of now because they were only doing a presale for the physicals until the 7th (I actually found out about it 20 mins before it ended), the digital will be available on PSN in about 8 weeks. Yep its a SRPG, typically not a fan of them but I've found some good ones lately so I'm giving it a try.

Man I was going to ask if anyone checked out Gamestop's retro section and how was it.

I saw that fake Chrono Trigger video, I am of course subscribed to Pat the Nes Punk on Youtube. Mostly for the cheesy Flea Market Madness videos and not his podcasts. Cinnemassacre and Lord Karnage are my favourite retro gaming channels though. I might go back and pick that up Mario Kart 64 still, but I doubt it, I've already spent enough this month so the girlfriend probably wouldn't be too pleased about it. Her son is back in school as of yesterday and that was an extra added cost we normally don't have to budget in, so this month is a bit tight on cash. And I always clean all my retro stuff, games, controllers, and consoles. First thing I did when I got my Dreamcast is take it apart to clean and lube the crap out of the GD-ROM laser mechanisms with lithium grease. Surprisingly though, the NES controller was in great shape. I think someone must have cleaned it before or something. When I got my Genesis, the controller that came with it was disgusting. I literally had to chip off chunks of poop coloured grime with a safety pin, and soak the Dpad in alcohol to get it all off. It's like new now, but felt like I was going to hurl when I was cleaning it. The only console I haven't opened up to clean/fix is my slim PS2.

Oh, if you didn't mark it up then that's different.

My apologies.

The Lethal Weapon with gun is VERY cool. The Konami Enforcer right? You can use it with Snatcher! I'd love to play it that way. (I'd also love to play a legit copy rolleyes.gif ) I have Lethal Weapon on cart, but no gun. And my large flat screen CRT doesn't work with light guns. We even have another upstairs that doesn't work with light guns either. So I need to get a different TV.

The problem is, the large CRT I have has an excellent picture. It's a flat Insignia we got around 2004. It also has S-video and component RGB inputs. I hooked my PS2 up to it with component and it looked amazing, but it only works with PS2 games. I tried PSone games and they didn't display correctly (and I don't have a PSone). So since my TV has a really good picture, even with composite, I have to choose between that or an older TV with crummy picture, that will work with light guns. It's a trade off. I'd kill to be able to play Virtua Cop 2 with light guns though.

Ah, Mario Kart will have to wait then.

Where'd you say you got the games at? Microplay? You're in Canada.... never heard of Microplay, what's it like?

Here in town we're pretty limited. The store I frequent is called Video Game X-change. I know the owner, Lance. He's like a 50 year old Midwestern metalhead rocker dude. HE's been in business here ever since I've lived here, which is '94, and I've been going to his stores since. He sells stuff for good prices, and usually has decent inventory, but his store is small. It's usually very common stuff he has in his store- I've never seen a Turbografx or a Neo Geo CD or anything cool like that. He used to have two other stores in town but they closed down years ago. The other place in town is Preplayed Games, they're much newer and have only been around since I moved back up here (2006). This place sucks, they overcharge for everything, and I frequently see games in there that I've seen at Lance's. Lance says shady guys have come in with fat stacks and bought all his Pokemon games, then people see them at Preplayed. For example, last time I was there I counted at least 15 copies of Mario 3 for $20 a piece, which is ridiculous. I only spend my money at Preplayed if I can't get the game at Video Game X-change, and if it's cheaper than Amazon. Other than that, there's PawnAmerica which has been awful the last few times I've been in. We have a GameStop™ in each mall. I avoid those places and the crowds they have (bros) like the plague if I can. What's a shame is that people don't realize they can get used PS3 or 360 games at the local stores for much less, AND support a local business. The last time I was in Gamestop some fat brofist frat boy and a black guy were playing Madden™ and being really fricken' loud the whole time. It was disgusting. I don't believe people who only play games like that should call themselves gamers...

I don't believe people who only play games like that should call themselves gamers...

Microplay has been around since I was a kid, not sure how big it is, but I am pretty sure there are a few stores scattered throughout Ontario. I think I bought my original Sega Saturn way back in the day from them, though a different location in town than the one they have now. The store is a mixed bag, like I said. I don't mind hunting for deals, but you definitely have to hunt. Most of the stuff is priced quite a bit over Ebay prices...but that had some OK stuff in there. There was an Atari 2600 though they wanted quite a bit, and I really have no interest. They have games for most systems, though selection is pretty thin on things like PS1 and Dreamcast even. Not really somewhere you'd go to find something particular, as the chance of them having exactly what you are looking for is slim. They mostly carry newer games there, it's a bit like an EB Games just with a little bit of retro stuff mixed in here and there.

My main store in town that I like to spend my money at is that Games Exchange one, another one I have been going to since I was a kid. Great service in there, nice guys. I haven't seen the original owner in there for awhile, and I think a couple of the guys that used to just work there run the place now. They have a really small collection of games, especially when it comes to cartridge games (other than handheld stuff). They usually have about 10 SNES games, about the same in N64, rarely a Dreamcast anything, you get the idea. But there is a different selection each time you go there, and their prices are absolutely awesome. If I can spend my money here, I do.

I also have a few pawn shops in town, but only one is really any good. Not a huge fan of them because I had a bad experience there years ago, but I can't resist at the prices on some stuff. They don't really follow any ebay pricing or anything, a Genesis game is just a Genesis game, for example, and the prices usually only vary from $2-6, depending on how cool the cover looks I think lol They've been a lot better in the past while, but they don't have any type of return policy, so if you get something that doesn't work, nothing you can do about it.

There's also the other big one, KW Vintage games, nice guy too in a way, but really can't stop talking about trades, trades, trades. His store is pretty much amazing to look at, he's almost literally got everything in there. But the prices are Ebay prices + about 10%, sometimes even more, so I don't go there very often. When buying original consoles, he gives you third party controllers and cables and keeps/sells the branded stuff. And the third party controllers he gives are the absolute cheapest crap possible. The only place in town to go if you are counting on something being in stock though...he's got a nice collection of 32X/Sega CD/Dreamcast, which most stores around here lack. He's got all sorts of systems and stuff too, I am sure you could go get a 3DO or Jaguar there, but you'd pay out the behind on it. I'll likely go there to get 32X/Sega CD since it would be a waiting game in any of the other stores. The place is also kind of like a clubhouse, lots of Magic Cards going on and general nerding out. He doesn't mind if you just come to hang out and not buy anything. Felt weird though cause I am a little old for that kind of stuff now, honestly, it was mostly just kids sitting on their phones and looking mopey lol

There's a few other stores in town too that I have yet to check out, as well as a few swap meets. I haven't heard much good about the swap meets though. Just overpriced stuff, probably a lot of resellers.

Interesting stuff.

Sounds like you also generally overpay or have trouble finding things.

I'm gonna be going to California to see my wife's family for Christmas this year, I hope to get out to some arcades + used games stores + swap meets while I'm out there. Saving up money for it.

You know Ian from the CUpodcast? Then you know he works at a games store in San Diego called Luna Video Games. I wish we had stores like that here. There's this new Google thing called "see inside" where you can go in a store and look around, click this sentence to take a look. See if you can find the Turbo in the front.

This hobby is really frustrating right now because retro games are a huge thing. People who never used to care about gaming at all, maybe started on PS3 and 360 and realize how big and effing commercial it's gotten, and want to go back and see what they missed. Good on them, because most games now suck. So much focus on graphics that they forget to make it fun. Well anyway, it's really expensive right now, people want $75 for a NES that's dingy and yellow, I mean come on. I'd give it maybe 5 or 10 years and then it's gonna be passe and prices will go back down.

So, it will be hard to find games less than ebay or price charting prices, price charting is really what's making everything so expensive. Your best bet is to look on Amazon. But you can also look at garage sales, pawn shops, Craiglist etc.

One of my best finds was through Craigslist, I got about 10 NES games for $65 from some guy way out in the middle of nowhere in rural Wisconsin. This was 2 or 3 years ago. He said he hoards them and resells them for money. I got Mega Man 6, and TMNT 2 and 3, the rest of them I don't remember but it was a small stack. Now, TMNT 3 is $30 and Mega Man 6 is $50 or more (this one is quite hard to find in the wild- I'm holding onto it hoping it goes way up in price like Mega Man 5 has in the last few years). Also, he had Zelda LttP for SNES and I told him I wanted it, he brought out Zelda Gold Cart instead, I told him and he ran back across the street to his house and got me LttP. $5. I think that one goes for $30 now.

NES and especially SNES stuff holds it's value very well and the prices just keep going up and up so if you see a good deal on NES stuff don't pass it by.

Sega stuff varies, most Genesis games aren't worth crap. Boxed Sega CD + Saturn stuff can be very expensive. Most Dreamcast stuff isn't worth anything, but most of the GOOD games on the system (i.e. Capcom- Power Stone 2 etc) is extremely expensive. SFIII 3rd Strike I can remember seeing complete for like $30 10 years ago, now it's like $80 in decent condition...

Personally, I'd skip the 32X and just get a Sega CD. Get a model 2 even if you have a model 1 Genesis. The tray loader isn't worth the problems. My CD 2 works reliably all the time. The tray loader doesn't. The only reason to get a 32X is if you really want slightly better video quality from composite, as the 32X produces clearer video than most Genesis consoles, it uses a different encoder. None of the games are really worth it.

I have it bnib to Stay downstairs in Meh pretty basement.

I also have a bnib Sega cd leathal weapon (with gun) never said I would still them though

Oh, if you didn't mark it up then that's different.

My apologies.

The Lethal Weapon with gun is VERY cool. The Konami Enforcer right? You can use it with Snatcher! I'd love to play it that way. (I'd also love to play a legit copy rolleyes.gif ) I have Lethal Weapon on cart, but no gun. And my large flat screen CRT doesn't work with light guns. We even have another upstairs that doesn't work with light guns either. So I need to get a different TV.

The problem is, the large CRT I have has an excellent picture. It's a flat Insignia we got around 2004. It also has S-video and component RGB inputs. I hooked my PS2 up to it with component and it looked amazing, but it only works with PS2 games. I tried PSone games and they didn't display correctly (and I don't have a PSone). So since my TV has a really good picture, even with composite, I have to choose between that or an older TV with crummy picture, that will work with light guns. It's a trade off. I'd kill to be able to play Virtua Cop 2 with light guns though.

you should check craigslist. i consistantly saw 36" tvs for free.

i obtained a 36" curved sony for this reason so i can play light gun games, ill have to look into snatcher

pretty sure i have virtual cop 2 and one as well.

i have 2 full sets of guns ( meaning the blue and pink guns - blue is player 1 pink is player 2 ) most pink guns go for about 40 which i find ironic as when they came out you could buy them for 10 iirc ( ONLY through the mail by cutting the manual and sending in the part of the last page ) which is why they are so rare

but the 2nd player works across all 3 of the guns ( i dont have the play station version but i have the super nes version as well )

pretty sure i can sell ( cheap i might add ) a blue gun to you though iirc i have like 4 for the NES and leathal weapon 1 and 2 carts ( carts only- not in the best of shapes ) i can sell

iirc i have cib sega and sega cds of both games

dont get me wrong price gouging sucks but i do it, esp at console releases

also i must disagree about the 32x with you 3 power bricks FTW!!!!

just found this mod, pretty cool http://www.squirrel-games.com/?p=384
