Braveheart Blu-ray ($22.95 + $10 rebate) and Valkyria Chronicles for PS3 (used and complete, $34.95, free with change left over after trading in a bunch of old DVDs I have Blu-ray versions of).

Belmont's Revenge is not rare cart only. But go search for a complete one on ebay, half.com, amazon.com, and come back empty handed. Doesn't matter how much you're willing to spend because there will be zero results.

It's the same thing with alot of original Game Boy games, you can easily obtain the cart only to any of them, but when you insist on it being complete alot of times it'll either be expensive as hell or near impossible to find or both. It depends on the game though.

Below is a pretty cool site when you can search for any game on any system (minus current gen) and find out approximately how much it costs loose, complete or new.

http://www.rarityguide.com

Quote:
Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge konami 1991
73 percent (Extremely Collectible)
New:270.00 CIB:100.00 Loose:13.00

01-10%: Extremely Common. 11-20%: Very Common. 21-30%: Common.
31-40%: Uncommon. 41-50%: Sought After. 51-60%: Very Sought After.
61-70%: Highly Collectible. 71-80%: Extremely Collectible. 81-90%: Super Rare. 91-100%: Ultra Rare.
To me on this one those prices are kinda low. You won't find a new one for $270 most likely, more like $500. CIB is more like $150. I got mine for $100 + a CIB japanese version of the same game from a game site called nintendoage. (you can buy, sell and trade games with other members there.)

Belmont's Revenge and Castlevania Legends are the two most expensive games to find complete on the Game Boy. (luckily I already have Legends) Another hard as hell to find CIB I need is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Radical Rescue. Again you will rarely ever find a single copy on Ebay, Half.com, Amazon or any game trading forum.

Trials HD (XBLA). Really neat, really worth checking out the demo to see if you like it.

And the stuff I've bought over the last few weeks:

I went to a house that was selling off a massive gaming collection. I wasn't really sure what the circumstances were, but it seemed like the house was being sold, didn't have electricity, no place to store anything, so it all had to go ASAP.

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
