While I can't really take credit for this idea (someone else started a long-running topic like this on another site ages ago); I *like* it...and it works!

Basically, it would be a "Misc", "general", "open-discussion" kind of topic...

...so...

you/me/we don't need to start a new thread every time!

Talk about whatever...

- what you're playing,

- your husband, wife, g/f, b'f's annoying you,

- birthdays,

- Video game grading,

- upcoming items of interest,

- new gaming news/announcements,

- beginning/end of bad day rants,

- talk about yourself/where you're from/what you're like,

- questions, answers, topics, ideas, opinions, suggestions & recommendations about *anything* gaming/collecting-related (or not), etc, etc...

*Anything goes/It's all good here* -

It's my birthday today! The big two-seven. Plan to use my birthday cash to add some new games to my collection. On a side note, is it just me or are SNES games kinda pricey? I don't know, I guess I was expecting a $10-$15 price range but all the ones I've found on various used game sites have been $25-ish, sometimes more than that.

Thank you! Nope, Libra here. But, October babies FTW! I think after a certain age, no one wants to be bothered with purchasing an actual birthday present for you. Which is fine by me as I am thoroughly happy with these birthday cards filled with cash. Got my eye on a whole slew of PS1 games.

- Alundra 1 & 2
- Dragon Warrior VII
- Koudelka
- Legend of Mana
- Lunar SSS & Lunar 2
- Myst
- Persona 1 & 2
- Rhapsody
- Riven
- Saga Frontier 1 & 2
- Tales of Destiny 1 & 2

Apparently I should give up the hope of ever owning Brigandine or Valkyrie Profile--my friend laughed when I said I wanted these games. Are they very rare?

Persona 1 & 2: Innocent Sin & Persona 2: Eternal Punishment maybe go for around $60, and so does Valkyrie Profile... They're excellent games but most have ports already made if you don't want to cough up that money...

I still say that this thread will just become too overloaded with stuff to really be worthwhile but whatever makes you happy I guess.

It just seems like the stuff posted in here so far would be better suited to the Off Topic area.

True...but this would/could 'condense' a whole shit-load of random "off-topic" threads into just one.
