Check out this totally legit Sega Dreamcast auction on eBay right now.
I’d be lying if I said I don’t have a crap-ton of burned Dreamcast ISO’s myself, but I’ve never once considered trying to sell them on eBay – let alone charging over $40 to ship a bunch of CD-R’s.
What a dick.
But I suppose if there are people willing to buy them, and as of this writing there are (4) bids on it.
I’m already starting to find sealed overstock current-gen games at my local Goodwill stores; I figured it would be at least another year or so before that happened. A couple of months back I scored a pair of PS4 VR games, today it was 4 Cheap Xbox One games:

As I’m getting ready to head out of town for a few days, I haven’t had much time to hit the thrift stores. Luckily, the one right down the street from me had a nice selection of PSOne games that I was able to put up for $3 each…

You’d think that out of a pool of 155 million PlayStation 2 consoles (slim, fat, and otherwise) I’d be able to cobble together one that actually works reliably. Well, it took a while but I’m finally there – the fourth time’s a charm and I have a 100% functional PS2 slim to go with my temperamental PS2 fat.
It took quite a while to find a fully functional unit without resorting to paying more than I was willing.
Here’s my collection as of July 2017…

I’m looking forward to some Big Air! and Bigger Tricks!
After finding a complete Tony Hawk Ride set at a thrift store recently, I did some research and learned of Tony Hawk Shred – a game that received substantially better reviews than Ride did, but sold very poorly.
Whatever. I had to buy it anyway and Amazon had it for a mere $3 with free Prime shipping. Not the most sporting find in the world, but I have OCD when it comes to complete collections sometimes.
For anyone that ever saw the infamous “All of your base are belong to us” internet meme and thought “hey, I remember that game,” This be book bad translation, video games! is for you.
Chock full of some of Japanese gaming’s greatest bad translation triumphs, Legends of Localization‘s 64 page masterwork never ceases to inform and entertain.

I’m indifferent to Undertale, but its fans creep me out even more than Minecraft people.
Seriously, who writes something like that? This guy.
Though definitely not a rare title whatsoever, this Gears of War 3 Limited Edition I found in a local department store’s bargain bin is easily one of the better deals I’ve found outside of a thrift store in quite a while.

I was MIA for most of the Wii Fit-style fitness controller phase, but Tony Hawk Ride did briefly catch my eye when it was released in 2009. Unfortunately (or is it fortunately?) I didn’t have a console when it was released, otherwise I’d probably have picked it up as I’ve been a fan of the Tony Hawk series for many, many years.
Despite a near-unanimous critical bashing of the game, I’ve always wanted to give Tony Hawk Ride a try, if only because it seemed like a good marriage of hardware and concept – and I don’t trust gaming nerds to dig physical gaming much anyway.
Today I finally got my chance – I landed a complete Tony Hawk Ride game and fake skateboard controller for $5 at a thrift store.

Under normal circumstances I avoid buying used sports games because 99% of them don’t really hold up and they seldom have any resale value down the road. For this sealed copy of EA Sports 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil for Xbox 360 though, I made an exception because of it’s something of a mystery.
