General / Portland Retro Swap Meet
« on: January 18, 2019, 12:26:52 am »
Not sure if there are many NW (Oregon, Washington) people here, but there is an awesome swap meet on Saturday in Portland.  Should be a ton of fun!  If you plan to go, let me know and we can meet up and maybe swap some stuff!  I'll be going with kypherion here.

Just completed a trade.  Transaction was smooth, communication was great.  Would happily deal with again! Thanks.

Due to popular demand: this is a topic to share the worst games that you have recently added to your collection

I'll start us off:

Countdown Vampires!

This game is so awesomely terrible.  Found it at a thrift shop last weekend.  Plays like a bad Resident Evil clone.  Dialogue is so cheesy.  Go to 7:01 in the video for one of my favorite moments early in the game.

In this topic- you share some of the worst deals you see online/out in the field


code is PSUMMER15OFF

Ends at 8pm PST

General / Flaky Sellers and the Deals That Got Away
« on: May 18, 2017, 12:04:12 am »
I'm sure a lot of people on here use Craigslist or Offer Up to score good deals for videogames and for the most part I've always had great success at reaching out to sellers, organizing a time to meet and actually meeting up with them and getting the games.  But today, I finally had a bad experience and I am curious to hear from others about deals that never materialized from flaky sellers and what awesome deals people missed out on. 

Today I messaged a seller about a bunch of in box genesis games, (shadowrun, streets of rage 1 and 3, blades of vengeance, shinobi III, sonic spinball, good titles) no price listed but the ad says he knows what they are worth but is not expecting anywhere near that so send any reasonable offer. I shoot him an offer of $100 and i get a text from him saying that if I can meet him immediately, the games are mine.  I ask for an address and he says head to a spot and then when I get there, he'll send me his home address.  He says this is because he is tired of giving his address out to flakes who never show up.  We commiserate about flakes and I tell him I'll be there by 5.  He says great. 

I look up the address and see it's far away.  I look for other potential deals to help make the drive worth it and I see a guy selling a bunch of rpg ps2 games for cheap, I send a message out to him and he responds immediately as well saying I could meet today.  I decide the drive is worth it (about 45 minutes) and I get in my car.  I send the genesis guy a text telling him I'm 30 minutes out.  He says great.  Then I get close to the spot and I text and I don't hear back.  I wait for 5 minutes, call, no response.  I never hear back from the guy.  After all that talk about how much he flakes and he ends up ghosting me, I had to appreciate the irony.  I'm sure he got a better offer, I just found it funny that he flaked after telling me all that.

 Luckily the other guy did not flake and I end up getting Romancing Saga, Drakengard 2 and Shining Force Neo for $40 total!.  The guy ends up telling me that his 80 year old father was the owner of the games and they looked like they had never been used.  They are the cleanest "used" games I have ever seen in my whole life.  What an interesting day. 

Hey all,

I don't know how many of you live in the Pacific NW, but there's an awesome retro game swap meet happening this Saturday run by the same people that put on the Portland Retro Gaming Expo held every year in October.

Thought I'd pass along this info to any Oregonians here that might be interested. 

General / SNES Repro Carts- Help needed
« on: July 22, 2016, 02:41:27 pm »
Hey all,

I have recently made contact with a guy offloading his SNES collection and he's given me first dibs on everything. 

He also has 5 Repro carts each with an "official repro" box to go with them and I was wondering if anyone on here was knowledgeable about their general value.  Is ebay sold listings sufficient for fair market?  Some of these I can't find any listings for. 

He has:

Clock Tower- English Translation

Bahamut Lagoon- English Translation

Front Mission: Gun Hazard- English Translation

Live a Live: English Translation

Star Fox 2: English Translation

He's selling them 50 bucks a pop and he just sent me a picture and they look very nice.

I was thinking about getting Clock Tower, Bahamut Lagoon and Front Mission: Gun Hazard and he offered $150.  Is this even remotely worth it?  I've told him I want to think it over before I pull the trigger.  This guy is giving me some great prices on his other official cartridges so I feel like it's probably a good deal but thought I'd see if there were any experts on here that could give me some advice
