my dad went to an auction yesterday and picked up a box of junk :lol: a couple old Vtech computer things, a busted snes. but the worthwhile stuff was DK country 2 and super mario RPG for SNES and a stack of NES games about a foot tall including kirby, battletoads, and a few other decent games

Finally found a decently priced toploader! Came with 6 games I already have but it was still cheaper than anything else I had come across lately. Can't wait to add a Power LED and do the A/V mod, which thankfully is pretty close to the video amp you make when doing a NES portable.

Pretty good day today for me, found some Playstation & DC games and grabbed an Intec PS2 screen for $2.

It was pretty damn dirty and I had some trouble at first getting it to run at first, but it works fine. First time the a/v cord was broken and the second time I didn't realize the screen was set to s-video output. :facepalm:
People talk a lot of crap about the Intec screen but it seems decent enough, especially for the price and I'm just gonna use it for my 80's NES Laptop. Speakers are incredibly LOUD.

ImageImage
Bunch of Dreamcast games; Wacky Races $6, Worms Armageddon $2, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver $3, 4x4 EVO $2, SoulCalibur $3, Resident Evil: Code Veronica $4. Haven't done a official count but this might put me over 100.

Image
Playstation Games: Chocobo's Dungeon 2 $10, Blasto $2, Grand Theft Auto $1.

Man I like those old-ish radios. Nice find! Are you going to restore it to its original functionality or make it into a WiFi/Bluetooth streaming target device?
