Got even more games.

Started to buy some Favoritos PS3 games and managed to get a sealed Lost Planet 3 for less than US$10.

Also bought some CIB SNES games, Mario Party 4 and a CIB Brazilian version of Streets of Rage.

And bought a lot more 3DS games.
Maybe one of the rarest of those is Crash City Mayhem. Luckily i found it sealed for US$11.

My favorite Japanese online retailer had this for sale (via their proxy service) since June-July, 2011. With the bonus being that it came with two eCapcom bonus items. 😎

I've been thinking about using a proxy service. Everytime I start setting it up I get lazy and don't finish.

I was the same before my first experience with their proxy service. And I still am, but I am also a bit apprehensive when it involves ones others have requested. 😅

I got this Mario Kart DS CE. I've been looking for one that's 100% complete for awhile and won an auction just a could $ under my max bid. However, it smelled like 10 packs of smokes cigarettes. I actually used a tooth brush and dish soap to remove some of the tar from the box. Unreal.

It came with the game though! In the weird Wii Sports-esk card board sleeve. All in all, I'm glad to have it in the collection and the dryer sheets are stuffed in there doing the Lord's work.

I got a CIB Gameboy Micro for $15 once. I was excited until I turned it on and noticed the entire screen was yellowed to hell and back because the previous owner was a smoker. It wasn’t the changeable plastic piece over the screen either... it was the actual unit’s screen.

^^^Your mention of the tar gave me flashbacks to the one craigslist pickup I made where I had to wipe actual tar from several N64 games.   I think I ended up pitching the actual unit since it was so gross.

How many years of cigarettes does that take? I saw the dawn soap commerical of the ducks in oil so I figured it could work on the cardboard too. It was unreal. I never saw that in my life.

Under the screen? Man, could you imagine someone clocking 2000k on that and blowing smoke into the Gameboy the whole time? Lol 

Hopefully they all switched to vaping to save the games.

Not sure, but the dude lived in a trailer and I think he had cigarettes lit the entire time I was there (let alone anybody that may have lived with him)

That's some old skool smoker shit. I remembered by grandmother would always have one lit even if she took 1 or 2 hits.

I just use whatever is included with the item that happens to be listed. Because it eliminates the procurement fee, which stacks with their standard and service fees (both were 500 JPY). Plus I am reluctant to find out how much more their fees would be since I don't want to buy anything that has an ugly sticker on the packaging. 😅

Kind of surprised myself earlier today when I was out as I found a solitary NES game I decided I wanted to own again, Top Gun.  That on its own, especially at $7 isn't all that remarkable, but it also did have the sleeve, and in there was the manual but it was in pieces.  A nice thing though was that it wasn't ripped, it was just popped out, so I fixed that.  Still though not a great deal, until I realized later that split to pieces manual also had the complete CONTRA one in there too. 😄  hah

I vape a lot, the vape still leaves a film on stuff if  you vape in small enclosed spaces. Not as bad as smoke for sure but I don't like vaping around my games.

These are my arrivals for this week...

Nice Arrow Flash - easily one of my favorite Genesis games. This is actually my first time seeing the box-art - not too often you get something as epic as giant mechs and dragons at the same time haha. So sick.

Dragons and giant mechs are two things I love.  Having them in one game is totally awesome!

Been awhile since I went thrifting, but it went well! N64 stuff was a local auction that I picked up while making the rounds. Thankfully the red sharpie on Majora came off easily enough. Not sure why you would sharpie a corner red but w/e.

I mentioned to a friend of mine that one of the few Game Boy's I was missing was the Game Boy Micro. I saw her a few days later and she gave me this. Apparently it had been in a box in her closest just sitting there. It's CIB by the way. Sometime getting the stuff you are missing from your collection is all about who you know. So shout out to Sydney, she is awesome!

Some big Sega purchases here!

Robo Aleste is a sequel/Spin-off to MUSHA. I haven’t played MUSHA so I can’t tell you which is “better,” but going by the price, desirability, and praise of MUSHA, I’m going to hazard a guess that MUSHA is the better game. Power Strike on the SMS is the first in the line of Aleste/MUSHA games, and is one of the pricier SMS games.

Alex Kidd in Shinobi World is probably my my most wanted SMS game and it’s one of the heavies in the North American library. It’s gaining traction as more people learn about it, so I was glad to get this one both because I genuinely want to play it and because it’s super hot/popular amongst Sega fans right now, so every online listing right now tends to get expensive (for SMS prices, anyway) very quickly.

I’m also gonna go ahead and say AKiSW is my first “big dick”-style purchase. There were two on eBay: this one with a BIN above the historical “sold for” prices and one that was an auction. I just said “Screw this, I don’t want to fight with other bidders.” So I did the BIN. I don’t even care, I’m so happy to have this one. And it’s in great shape.
