Yeah, there are zero good deals where I live. Even garage sales are expensive. :(

a while back I traded I believe to Shockslayer, Pokemon Stadium for Banjo Tooie, and a single 7805 or 7808 (I forget which) for Glover :P

I thought that was a pretty sweet deal, as I had no interest in Pokemon anymore, and I had been always wanting to get Banjo Tooie.

It was a 7808! :P

I really had no fun left in either of those games, so meh.

Today I bought a Sony AV cable, but it's broken (really bad rip). I also bought a partial box of CO2 cartridges for a carbonator because they looked neat. When I learned that there was compressed gas inside I wished I'd bought the other box too.

You need one? I'll sell you one and ship it with the FC converter.

Today, at a car boot sale, bought a Dreamcast, controller, VDC (or whatever it is called), 6 games; all for a grand total of £3. Figured I would mod a Dreamcast at some point...

But anyways, good deal there! Which games did you get?

Sometimes, life isn't fair, but you just have to work around it.

I week or so, I bought a psp 1001 off a friend at school for $40 with an official sony memory stick, a charger, a carrying case, a godfather game, metal of honor heroes 2, and the umd movie, gone in 60 seconds. I got it cheap because the analog stick was destroyed.

Today, another friend gave me a free psp 1001 with a shattered lcd. I will combine the 2 to make a working unit.

Also, today a kid on my bus randomly offered me his pokemon blue for $5. So I bought it.
rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio! \m/
