As far as I saw, it was a lot of ancient stuff, half of which I had never heard of before. There was everything from Pongs, Ataris, all those things that end in "Vision", to some 8 and 16-bit stuff, an Amiga CD32, Magnavox CDi, FM TOWNS CAR MARTY (a 90s CD system, for your car, with a GPS), Saturns, a Sega Nomad, a Panasonic Q, it just went on and on. In hindsight, I really regret not taking pictures.

I didn't leave empty-handed, though:


Saturn, Japanese versions:
Virtua Fighter 1, 2, Remix, and Kids
Cyberbots
Vampire Hunter
Devil Summoner
Soul Hackers (2 copies)
Saturn, US versions:
NiGHTS
Astal
Blazing Dragons
Darius Gaiden
In the Hunt
Playstation
Vandal Hearts II
Sega CD
Silpheed
Wirehead (lol)
Genesis
Shining Force II
Landstalker
Darius II (Japanese ver.)
Comix Zone (factory sealed)
Thunder Force III
Ghouls'n Ghosts
SNES
Raiden Trad (maybe factory sealed)
Misc.
Sega CD Back Up RAM cart
Sega Saturn ST Key
Shenmue strategy guide

And it was all quite cheap. And some of it will be hitting eBay
Unless one of you are interested...

Even with all the stuff I saw, I think they had apparently already sold a lot of other things. I wish I had gotten there the previous week, as I probably would've found some very desirable things. LIKE SNATCHER OR PDZ OR EARTHBOUND In another hindsight, I kinda wish I had bought more, but I felt like I had to practice a little self-control
Nice Haul. You should have picked up the Amiga CD32.

I plan to. At least a micro review at the very least, but we'll see.

My CC was just charged $277.28. Here's the reason:


I decided to get a real monitor for my computer and abandon the HDTV for the living room. Sad, but a 40" HDTV in my room is kinda overkill and will be better suited in the living room. So I'l going to get this as my main monitor and my old Studio Display 15" as the secondary.


Yay! Now I legally own the game!


Uhh...I need to burn something....

Just an F.Y.I. Amazon is the best place to buy games from. They're already the cheapest on any game by 5%, free shipping, depending on what state you're in no tax, they often times will give you a $10 off future purchase gift card with a preorder and if you join this site theeca.com and enter code GIMAG you'll get a free membership which will you get another 10% off on any Amazon game purchase. (it generates codes on the site that you enter into your Amazon order)

I'm going to end up paying $42 total for Uncharted 2 after using a $10 GC from preordering Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days (in which that game I'm paying $25.56 total, there was an additional $5 off using code on that one using KINGDOM5) Not bad at all. Compare these two games to Gamestop.

Gamestop
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days $39.99+tax
Uncharted 2 $59.99+tax
Total $100+tax

Amazon
Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days $25.56
Uncharted 2 $42
Total $67.56 no tax

Last game I bought, roughly was 2 weeks ago, but that was the first purchase in at least 6 months (seeing as I was in florida again, but without internet for the whole duration).
I grabbed'
Freedom Force, plus its Nazi expansion. For the PC of course, It's one of those old classic vintage rpgs I completely passed by on accident, and it was fun to enjoy something I missed.

I picked up STALKER Clear Sky today for $9.99 at GameStop (noone in town had S:SOC). I'm waiting for my dbay to get Uncharted 2 and I have the CE of Dragon Age: Origins for PC reserved.

I'm totally gay for amazon.com. I buy way too much crap from that site and have a want list that is embarrassingly long.

I bought myself 4 houseplants today.


[b]I got myself 1 large pothos plant. It can filter out formaldehyde, xylene, and benzene in the room.


And three Snake Plants. They filter CO2 at night.
[b]

They all like low light and only need to be watered around 1 every month and a half! Kind of expensive though....$35 for all 4 plants.

Recently got 2 pothos for my chameleons, as well. The first chameleon I got 2 months ago and the bottom one I got the day before yesterday. Veiled chameleon and Fischer's chameleon.

Bummer man. My search for items usually starts and stop with Amazon.

And Chronos, props on the Pothos!
