Today I got a game about a woman that's made of plastic.

No, not a Barbie game. VIP for the Playstation starring Pamela Anderson. It cost me $1.33 cents. (The other stuff I picked up along with it were the soundtracks to the original Terminator and Freddy Vs Jason. Heh.)

Also of note, I grabbed The Network by Aqua Fox Studio at Desura. It is a kind of shoot-em up game which plays ... quite well. That was one dollar.

Nothing great (I don't think) - I'm kind of out of my element w/ non-rpg ps1 games.

Anyhow, figured I couldn't go too wrong at 3 for $10.

If anyone knows if any of these are anything decent (or not) - feel free to let me know :)

PS1 Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six

PS1`Final Doom

PS1 Zero Divide (*Long-Box*)

Well, the annoying search is over. I have acquired the final skylander - Wham shell. I had been going to Toys R Us every Thursday morning at open for 5 weeks now. I have been going to Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target, and Gamestop every chance I get ... none of the places I visited had ever even seen Wham Shell. I got frustrated and decided to look on Ebay. It looked like someone had just posted a $21 BIN price (it couldnt have been there more than 12 minutes at most). Considering all the gas and time it was going to cost me to eventually find him for $10 + tax, I said screw it and bought it. He arrived today. Not a bad character. But the savings in frustration and the hug I got from my son when he saw it was all worth the extra $10.

If I had known someone else needed Camo/Warnado, I would have sent you the link I sent Amariel. Toys R Us had the 3 pack with them 2 and Ignitor for a few days.

As for determination, its a bit of that tied with the obsession of my kid to every day ask me to get him Wham Shell. I really was unwilling to pay the $60-75 apiece the people on Ebay wanted so I would try to find it on the shelf. But it brings back Hot Wheel nightmares and I couldnt keep doing it. Plus its worth it to spend an extra $10 to not have to do anymore searching at all til Giants (which is supposed to release around Sept/Oct).

Wow, Congrats!

I can't pull the eBay trigger on him when I didn't for any of the others. He's still the only one I need as well, but I haven't finished leveling all the others yet so I keep telling myself that it's OK.

I went hunting for games this weekend in various places...  I picked up one of those promotional posters from GameStop of Tales of Graces f.  It has a huge 'Available 3/12' bar on the bottom, but it's easy to cut off, so it'll be a nice poster for that game room that I don't have.  xD

I also picked up the first compilation of the Mega Man Archie comics.  I was interested in reading it, and was looking for just the first issue when I saw this, so that worked out.

Finally, I picked up Super Princess Peach (DS).  We weren't sure if we wanted to actually get the game for the going price, and debating whether we could find it complete again, when some mom and her kids walked in and the daughter was saying that she wanted the game really bad... they ended up not getting it, thank goodness, so we grabbed it up after they left.  :p

I was hesitant to pull the ebay trigger on Wham shell too. But the price actually wasnt too bad considering its going to save me many hours of headache. And it arrived in 2 days. So it was worth it.

I picked up a NES top loader a couple days ago from Craig's List for $15 ... I figured something would be wrong with it cause the price seemed too good. I got it and once I got home, I figured out wtf was up. It looked like it was just dug up from a 20 year grave. The AV and RF cables were both trash, the controllers were both trash. I was bummed. But I got a 4.5 bit and got it opened. After about an hour of cleaning/washing/alcoholing the hell out of it, its like brand new now! And the good thing is from that large buyout I had a little while back, I had spares of all the cords so it turned out good. :)

$15 is an amazing deal on a toploader, even if you had to tear the thing down and clean it extensively.  They normally go for 4-5 times that amount (or more).

Not all that many years ago (maybe 2 or 3) my mother contacted Nintendo about our old system and controllers. Even though their site says they no longer carry old parts and accessories, at that time they sent her some new controllers...and they were dogbones. Not sure if you want to bother, but it might be worth a shot.
