Finally!



An excellent purchase you will not regret. It doesn't have as many amazing games as i would like, but what it does have totally justify getting one. It's worth it for Smash and Mario Kart 8 alone.

Added a few more games to my collection.

Klonoa-Door to Phantomile for PlayStation complete with light shelf wear and a few little dings in the manual
Klonoa 2-Luanatea's Veil for PlayStation 2 complete in like-new condition
Klonoa for Wii complete in like-new condition
Klonoa-Empire of Dreams for Game Boy Advance complete in like-new condition
Klonoa 2-Dream Champ Tournament for Game Boy Advance complete in like-new condition

On a related note, my copy of Grandia for PS1 arrived and is better than expected.  A few little bends in the manual and light scratches on the discs.  Otherwise, in a new jewel case it looks absolutely gorgeous.   :)

Thank you!  These are two of the games I originally owned way back in the PS1's heyday.  I've been slowly piecing back together my old collection (nearly 200 games!!!) for the PS1 as well as adding in some classics I missed along the way.  Some PS1 games are commanding pretty high prices these days, especially if you are being anal about condition and completeness like I have been. 

Einhander, Tactics Ogre, Strider 2, Skullmonkeys (great game, waaaay underrated), Tomba 1 & 2, Valkyrie Profile, any Working Designs games (Lunar, Arc the Lad Collection, etc.)....these games have gone through the roof in value over the years.  Others like the long list of RPG's (including Final Fantasy, Suikoden, Wild Arms, Alundra, etc.) are commanding premium prices close to or slightly over their original selling price.  Then you have the Capcom fighting titles that range from $30 to $70 for complete NM copies each.... :-\

I think by the time I am finished, I will have close to 300 original PlayStation games in my collection.  Though, with my wife out of work now and medical bills, I think the pace of my collecting is about to go from hare to tortoise.    :'(

Got some more Wii stuff this week from gs:
- Dawn of Discovery ( disc only)
- Arc Rise Fantasia ( no manual)
- Destroy All Humans: Big Willy Unleashed
-Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo's Dungeon
-Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords
-Centipede Infestation

Then, I got these two cib for $31 at Book-Off, which usually overprices most of their US game selection nowadays
- All Star Baseball 2003 (GC)
- Gauntlet Dark Legacy (GC)
I only got the first game to swap cases, since Gauntlet came in a generic black rental case. I'm also gonna get Klonoa( Wii) for free next week so that's gonna be good. They also had a complete copy of Exerbeat for the Wii, which is pretty rare, but it doesn't seem very interesting.

Nice pickup. Treasure makes some interesting stuff. Its sequel on the Nintendo DS, Bangai-O Spirits is pretty cool too.

There was two sales Advertised "Video Games" on the same day at the same time, I picked the one that was part of a small subdivision sale and all they had was crappy PS1 games at $5 each and a few crappy 360 games at $10 each. Nothing worth my time so as I headed to the other video game sale (was in no hurry, figured anything good would be gone by the time i got there, so I hit every sale on the way.

At a sale I asked about games and the lady pointed out a box full of playstation 1 & 2 stuff, I look through it and its mostly all Sport games that I didn't need but when she told me $1 a piece I did pick out one game.

I hit a small apartment sale and asked the young man about games, he said he had some stuff and invited me inside to look. I see a box full of PS1, PS2 and 360 games, I pick out the few I wanted then he hands me a bag, inside was a N64 with games and other random stuff.

Now for the very last sale of the week. I stopped at a sale on Friday and asked about games, The lady said her son had a bunch of PS2 games he might want to sell. Told me to come back tomorrow and he'll have em out. Wasn't too excited about this and to be honest didn't think I was going to come back. Well All Saturday was pretty much nothing so I remembered the lady and the possible PS2 games. Thought might as well see what they got. I stop back and the lady told her son to get the PS2 games. He brings out a large stack and its all Sport games.  :-\ Nothing I needed so I asked you have anything else? The son said no that's all he had but this time his father was there and he said hold on I think I might have something and goes inside. I wait about 15 minutes when he comes out with 2 boxes. The first was an Atari 2600 (black Vader version) in a case and 43 games, all of them and the system looked in fantastic shape. I check the second box and its a NES with all hookups, Zapper, two controllers (looks like they replaced the B buttons with an orange one for some reason) and 9 games. We talk price and we come to $60 for all of it.  :D

I've never seen this variant before. There are multiple Gamecube games that have a "For Display Only" marking on their front cover and on the disc... but I've never heard of a Wave Race existing with that variant. Google didn't turn up anything, either...

Gamestop pre-release shelf box?

There are game discs with the same markings. Shelf boxes usally didn't have games included. :P

I've bought games at Gamestop with those cases before, after they were released of course, in the used section. Can't say the same for the discs, though.
