Holy cow Solatorobo! Amazing pickup! 😮

That was the Gasp Game this go-round. I try to get one game every con that solicits an audible gasp when I find it- otherwise it's more like grocery shopping than game shopping, y'know?

I'm surprised how stupid the NA cover of Super Star Soldier looks... the PC Engine cover for the game is sooooooo much better! Also, how much did Darius cost?

$80- A bit on the pricey side, bit it's complete and the disc is pristine, so it was worth a little extra.

 

Also, I just googled Super Star Soldier for the PC Engine and you are very correct!

Find of the year for me... got a complete copy of Gekioh Shooting King for $20 (after a coupon at my local game store) when it's on ebay for $60-70 complete. I still can't believe it. This is also my only game I have on PS1 that does not save (no memory card support). Would have been nice to be able to save high scores but oh well. lol

 

I also grabbed Kangaroo on Atari 2600 Starting to get hard to find Atari 2600 games in stores that I don't already have. I also grabbed these 2 big box PC games from a thrift store. I dunno if they are any good but eh. They had some more I might grab later on (I didn't grab them all as the others were strategy or point-n-click games which I'm not a big fan of). The yellow tags were the original retail prices (on clearance? lol).

Did you get much with it? The jealousy is real. I would love one but I think I'd want to save up for a decent set and wait for my kids to grow up and leave home.

9 loose carts (to be fair, one of those is Art Master so it's useless to me at the moment)- not the screaming deal of the century, but this represents the last of the classic consoles I really wanted to own, so I'm very excited about it.

With the price of this one on the rise I was beginning to think Id never find an affordable copy. Finally hit a decent BIN. Very excited to get it.

Nice grab.  This one has been very elusive for me too.

What's crazy is that for so many years you could get both the Wizard titles for $50 to $100 each no problem.

I know.  I regret not getting them in my early years of collecting.

I would have TCM, play it for a while, then trade or sell it when I was bored of it. I didn't much care to buy another copy for a few years and I come back to a price that has tripled. Needless to say I've not re-purchased. I can live without TCM in my pile of carts cause to me, it's not worth the price it's now commanding.

A little eclectic assortment of my pickups from the past couple weeks. I scored a really nice condition copy of Silpheed for the Sega CD, Sonic & Knuckles for the Sega Genesis, then a few games for the Nintendo Switch as well. First I picked up a digital copy of Darkwood then physical copies of Fox n Forests from Strictly Limited Games (which is now the new most valuable video game I own), Paw Patrol: On a Roll, and the special Outlast & Outlast II boxed set from Limited Run Games. Lastly, I finally bit the bullet and picked up a rare out of production Furbo Fox plush by Douglas for my modest stuffed animal collection, which I was pretty stoked about too. :)

I just grabbed Mega Bomberman from my local HBP for $16 using a coupon. Can't wait to play it!

As I had mentioned earlier I got Mega Bomberman... thought I'd show a photo of the actual cartridge I bought. Also a pink GBA that had a copy of Warioland 4 in which I found at a Salvation Army store for $1.25! The game was in the GBA! And both work!. The GBA had one of those cheap rechargeable battery compartment things. I've bought a replacement compartment for it and a white GBA I plan on selling as I already have an indigo GBA and a red GBA SP so I really don't need another GBA. Also a Radio Shack Highway LCD game for 95 Cents.

I dunno, man- if you've got a Gamecube, you'll need those for proper Crystal Chronicles play. 😋

These were a steal at Supercon.  The three CD's cost me $20.  I saw that each one sells for over $60!

I just got back from Target.  I went to pick up mine.  I thought the same.  For $20 it should be OK.
