If anybody is interested there's a sale at the square-enix store right now. A lot of games I thought were worth something are available for really cheap. For old consoles, like GBA/DS/PS2/PSP (as well as the new ones/windows).

Grabbed a couple PSP games the other day...went to see what SNES stuff they had in at Microplay, and they only had about 8 games, nothing that interested me, not at the prices they wanted at least. While I was there though I picked up Hot Shots Golf something CIB ($3), Daxter ($2), and Secret Agent Clank ($3). Just super common games, but ones I remembered were good from back when I was into PSP stuff a bit more. I know there are far more interesting games on the system, but I actually really enjoy platformers on the PSP. There are lots of good RPGS I have never played, but I'd much rather get those on different systems or even emulate, as I rarely would enjoy sitting on the PSP long enough to get through a typical 10-80 hour JRPG. Maybe if I was planning a trip or something...I could possibly get into one then. JRPG are are actually likely my favourite genre, it's just rare I can set aside the time to play one the entire way through. And when I do, I prefer to be able to do so comfortably at home lol

I have SO many JRPGs I want to play, probably around 50 across all my different systems.

I'll get through them all eventually, it may take a few years though.

If anyone is interested, the Japanese only 7th Dragon 2020 for PSP has a translation patch now. Obviously, you need CFW and a patched ISO for it to work.

PSP has a metric ton of good JRPGs to play. My favorite that I've played is probably the fan translated Grand Knights History. It was made by Vanillaware, the same team that made Dragon's Crown and Muramasa.

One of the main reasons I built that Xbox emulation PC was for going back to all the JRPGs I missed out on throughout the years, either because they were on platforms I didn't own or on handhelds which I rarely play. Game Boy Advance looks like it has a ton of them, PSP, DS...all ones I don't know much about honestly, but it's rare I run across a JRPG I don't at least somewhat enjoy. There are a ton of JRPG that I have yet to play through, but hope to one day. I kind of go through phases though where I will be playing a ton of games, and others were I rarely get time / feel like it. Honestly, I can't remember the last JRPG I beat...it's been that long. I got about half way through the Final Fantasy 4 remake on Android sometime last year, I guess. So many games I have started, lost my save, started over, etc. and repeated that cycle too many times to count...so now I try to avoid starting anything I can't dedicate a decent amount of time to. I'd like to start picking up the JRPGs I have always wanted to play through, though...even if I don't play them until I am some ancient old geezer biggrin.gif That's honestly kind of how I see my game collection right now...what I don't play through from now until then, I'll play when I am old and can't do much else lol I haven't picked up many of the JRPG I'd like to though,because...well, I am cheap and I am not paying ridiculous prices for them if I can avoid it. I wish I had some cash right now actually because Microplay has a whole row of sealed PS2 games, good ones only, most of them JRPG. They were priced really decently I thought, especially sealed...ranging from about $25-45, averaging $30. Most of the JRPG I actually remember are on Playstation though...so I'd likely spend most of my money on those games first unless something really catches my eye.

Was just checking into what some of my PC game collection is worth...and I guess holding on to physical PC stuff payed off, cause even "budget" and mediocre titles, are averaging about $30 as long as they are "big box" versions. Anything basically not tied to Steam or anything has gained a lot of value since the last time I checked a couple years ago. I have a few that are even worth $50+...not much to do this weekend, so I might do a bit of an "inventory" check and get another list of everything I have...it's been awhile since I updated anything.

I got a copy of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter for 0.75$ on the PC. Still has it's case, manual and the game works!

Sounds like me with CRPGs. I've had this specialized version of Baldur's Gate (there's some file copying trickery to play BG1 with the BG2 engine and it transitions from game to expansion to BG2 to BG2 expansions seamlessly) for like 5 years now. Someday I'll get through BG1. Might be 15 more years, but I'll do it...

Picked up Urban Strike on Genesis (loose cart, "yellow tab") for $4 (Second Hand World), and Kingdom Hearts II (greatest hits, CIB, mint) for $12 (Microplay), and then grabbed a bunch of Guitar Hero / Band Hero / Rock Band games for Xbox360, all CIB, for my Mom since she is obsessed with the guitar games. I think I paid an average of $2 each for those, and got them from various pawn shops and game stores. Basically just picked up every one I could find for the 360, since that is what she has. She's got most of them now, except for the band specific stuff, like the AC/DC and Beatles ones...I don't know much about this stuff though, I just try to keep in mind which ones she has and keep my eyes peeled for the ones she doesn't. It's funny watching your 50 year old mother destroy songs on Expert first try lol I can't stand playing them, but she definitely does tongue.gif

I managed to buy a Nintendo64 over the weekend: power/tv cords/one controller and a game (Turok: Dinosaur hunter) for....$22US.

Finally hooked it up yesterday and it all works amazingly enough. I thought that was a pretty good price. Now I don't have to disturb my CIB launch N64 in its box. I got out of the console thing before the N64 RAM upgrade and so I'm not sure if it has the upgrade or not. I think the RAM upgrade things are worth more than the consoles at this point so that would be pretty sweet (the branded ones that is).

At a different thrift store I bought a branded N64 controller: kind of a purple/transparent thing. I'm sure it has a fancy name. i don't know if it's worth anything/rare though. I think I paid $3 or so. Now I can play Bomberman64 (not the good one) with at least one other person rolleyes.gif


Also, wow. I can't believe we played Turok back then. I mean there wasn't a lot to choose from for N64 at launch and I realize it was ~20 years ago but...damn. Felt like I was learning to use a controller for the first time. Stupid '90s.

Edit: controller is this one
