Saturday is Yard Sale Day!!

06 / 25 / 2005

Well, I still can't spend large amounts of cash on anything just yet, but I did manage to get down to my cousin's yard sale he was having. He is only 14 years old, and is trying to save up for a camcorder so I decided to help out his fund raising by buying a few things from him. I overpaid dearly, but it was for a good cause. The whole lot cost me $15

Triple Play 2000, for N64
Turok the Dinosaur Hunter, for N64 *already in my collection, now a double*
an N64 Transfer Pak for the Pokemon Stadium games *I already had 2 of these*

Wario Land 3, for Game Boy Color
A Nyko Shock 'N' Rock accessory for the Game Boy Color
A *Pelican Brand* Power Grip Rechargable Battery for the Game Boy Color

Sim Ant, for PC

Finding Nemo, for Game Boy Advance

This added 4 new games to my collection, and the money spent went to a good cause. 8)

06 / 22 / 2005

I decided to go down to EB today for the sole purpose of getting over 2,500 games in my collection. I only needed 3 but I came home with 8 new games. Funny how that happens. 8) This now puts me at 2,505 games on my collection page.

Games Still Flowing in Slowly

Well, I really love my grandmother. She did it again.... She was out hitting the yard sales again and bought me another game.

06 / 12 / 2005

Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, for PS2

More Free Games, and Then Some Sad News!!

Well, everyone knows I collect games, even my grandmother. When she was out hitting a few yard sales last weekend she bought some games for me. She just got them to me now but they were purchased last Saturday ( 05 / 04 / 2005 ). I believe she paid $1 each for them.

05 / 06 / 2005

Blasto, for PS1
Stuntman, for PS2
Legends of Wrestling, for XBOX
Bruce Lee: Quest of the Dragon, for XBOX

Now on to the sad news, due to some recent money troubles I will be cutting back on game buying for the next few weeks. I just need to get back on track financially and buying multitudes of games was really cutting into my buget. To all my loyal journal fans: The journal won't be updated as much since I won't be buying anything, but I promise things won't stay this way forever, but for now I can't afford to buy anything. :cry:

Games at Bull Moose Music

I have found a new spot to buy used games.... Bull Moose Music has used, Sega, SNES, N64, Dreamcast, PS1, and all the next gen consoles games for sale. I didn't think to check in there until I saw a sign on the window that said they had used games. Its right on my way to YCT so now I might make it a place I frequent often. They are a little high priced but the selection is quite good. I walked away with only 2 new games for the collection as I need to save up a bit of money for a trip I'm going on.

05 / 31 / 2005

Alundra 2, for PS1, $5.97

Grandia II, for Dreamcast, $11.97

add in $.90 for tax and I spent $18.84 total. :D

A Gift from the Neighbor?

One of my next door neighbors knows that I collect games and she happened to have a few she didn't want anymore and amazingly they happened to be ones I didn't have. So she gave me 7 PS1 games and 4 memory cards for nothing. As you will see by the titles, they are games a girl would buy, but none of that matters to me. Free stuff, I'll take it!!
