My most recent acquisitions are:

N64 + 3 Controllers, 1 xPac, 2 rumble packs.
Pokemon Stadium <3
Superman 64
Links Awakening
Castlevania
Another Copy of Mario Bros
Another Copy of Kung Fu

I managed to get these from a few pawnbrokers around that had no idea how much they cost and the 64 my parents found in their garage as they were cleaning it out so I stole it haha.

proffesso, GIVE ME YOUR TOPLOADERS I WANT xD

I'm still looking for a Daytona USA CCE, it's much rarer and in it they fixed the background popin and added a couple of tracks.

Regular Daytona is a dime a dozen.

just bought one (Daytona USA CCE) from gametraders, going to be shipped to me for $18.95 postage included!

seems they don't know it's worth more than the original and if you buy instore it's only $9.95!

So looking forward to this!

Choices are a bit limited up here in Mt Isa for deals, but yesterday I picked up a Nintendo 64 with 4 games and a controller for $50.
The labels on the games are a bit has been, and I need to get the expansion pack, but not a bad start to a new collection.
Games are:
Star Wars Ep1: Battle for Naboo
Fifa 64
MRC (Multi Racing Championship)
NBA Jam 99

Got a Mega Drive II with a few games, and a GBC the other day, fairly decent prices aswell.

Was eyeing off a Dreamcast at the local GAME store, they want WAY to much for it thou (300 bucks....), its somewhat off putting, that and the GF wants me to get a NES so she can complete "her" Nintendo collection....

Found a box with ~20 oldschool adventure games at the flea market this morning. Mostly Sierra stuff from the late 80s. I was so stoked I didn't even try to haggle. Cost me $30 all up.

Some titles in the box (off the top of my head): Police Quest 1 & 2, Lesiure Suit Larry 2 & 5, Space Quest 2, King's Quest 2, 3 4, 5, The Colonel's Bequest, Gold Rush, The Black Cauldron... and a bunch of others.

All appear to be complete and most are in pretty good condition. I'll post pics tonight

There's some interesting stuff here:
- The box for The Black Cauldron for example is a really neat flip-out style that also integrates the manual.
- Gold Rush! came with a freaking huge period map of the United States.
- SQ2 comes with a comic book that prefaces the story in the game.
- Finally, KQ3 has a hint book and a special pen to reveal the clues! How cool is that??

I know!

They were being sold by this lady that looked like she was clearing out her garage. Some of the games are pretty well loved (LSL5's outer box is falling apart and others are frayed or partly torn at the edges) but a few (many infact!) are in really good condition (Gold Rush, SQ2, LSL2, KQ3, KQ5, PQ1, PQ2). I love that almost everything is complete. All the media, all the feelies, all the propaganda is right there. Only two things are missing: the manual for KQ2 and the special pencil that came with The Colonel's Bequest.

I also find it kind of cute that each box has extra bits of paper from the previous owner. Years old clippings from the Canberra Times "Computer Page" with clues and hints, hand drawn maps etc.

I finally got my Saturn working after getting a stuffed one off ebay. Slowly getting a few games from around the traps, so far I have Wipeout, Daytona USA CC, Virtual Cop, FIFA 96, MK2 (NTSC) VF kids and a few others that I cannot remember. Also grabbed a 9 in 1 cart for the gamegear.

Picked up a Sega Game Gear and a couple of extra games for Lynx last week.

Also picked up a newer R4 for my DS, totalling over 2,500 installed games
