Finds – Extra Large Edition

Here is a collective post of all the finds that didn\’t really merit a single post on their own, so I just saved them up so I could do a great big post. All of this stuff has been acquired since mid March. Also of note, I barely paid anything at all for this stuff. I have been on a big trading kick lately and have been refining my collection in the process. I may not have as big a collection as I did 8 months ago, but holy shit- all my games are good. Practically no filler. Without further ado:

xenogears-ps11

starocean-ps11

The really popular PS1 RPGs do not show up very often in the used game stores and pawn shops in my area, so when I saw these in my local pawn shop near the end of March I just had to get them. The  XenoGears was $49.95 and the Star Ocean was $39.99, so they were pretty close to market value and no where near some of the awesome deals I unearth. I ended up trading a bunch of doubles and extra consoles so I ended up not paying a dime out of pocket. I actually traded my old copy of Star Ocean in with everything because it was in pretty rough shape and missing the manual. Now I have a perfect mint version. I rule.

I picked most of these up last Sunday. I got the Viewtiful Joe used from EB Games for $ 4.99. I got Metal Saga, Grandia 3, Time Splitters 2 and Killer 7 from a local used game shop for $5 each, which is a pretty awesome deal, especially for the two PS2 titles. I paid $10 at the same shop a few weeks ago for the Gamecube Resident Evil. All are complete and scratch free.

These two CIB Genesis games I picked up from Replay Games (www.replaygames.ca) around mid-March. I didn\’t own either complete and these two titles don\’t show up CIB around these parts much, so I traded some stuff and added them to the shelf.

I got this copy of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, which is in absolutely beautiful condition, for the sweet price of $5.95 from the same place I got the Gamecube and PS2 games I  mentioned earlier. I actually have never played any of the Kingdom Heart games, but I plan on it eventually, so I thought I\’d pick this one up on the cheap.

I am currently working on a couple different features and reviews, and I just made a substancial addition to my collection tonight via Ebay, but I\’ll wait until it comes in the mail to show it off. Thanks for reading!

  1. Did you ever end up trying Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories? I have a friend who loves that game and I honestly cannot stand it.
