  1. So, have you? Got sent Barbie Horse Adventures from a radio call in? Beat everyone in the world at Halo 2 and win an Xbox 360? Tell us about it! I have wonzors: Soul Calibur Gamecube Jap Import from some TINY website, the guy told me I was the only one who entered. Good stuff, I wanted to play as Link and I don't really like fighters, so I got it for free Donkey Konga 2 and Bongos Total Wars Eras from the History Channel website, was going to trade it into Gamestation but they'd only give me £18, so I'll stick it on eBay soon Tonnes of Retro Crap for desinging some guy's shop logo. I sold the Turbo Grafx for like £20, sold the JVC X'eye for £45, the random games came up to about £10. I still have some of the shite American Genesis games that he just wanted to get rid of from his collection and a second game gear. Dragon Quest 8 strategy guide Nearlly forgot, Futurama on PS2 (ebay'd), Futurama DVD Box Set ("lost my recepit" and took back to a shop), Futurama Bender Figure (still have )
  2. I took a day off school because I HAD to play.. Totally not worth it though, worst point and click I played. EDIT: That's "Bud Tucker in Double Trouble" btw
  3. Today I DID a booty, very wierd seeing as there was a PSOne on the tables either side, saw people scrambling for the games and whatnot, glad to see I'm not in that crowd! Anyhoo, doing one with my dad meant I could go round a few times so I picked up Jet Force Gemini loose for a quid and Kirby's Pinball Land boxed for £1. Also made £15, so a good day.
  4. The weekend is upon us and for some reason the extremely hot weather from the week turned into rain last night, sods law, right? The boot was crap and I didn't find anything, but MAYBE.YOU.DID Let us know.
  5. I mean, back when this was released there was no GameFAQs! How in the hell did I complete it as a kid, I do not know, must have had a lot of time on my hands. Things like Broken Sword and Day of the Tentacle are easier, MI2 has always stuck out as being the toughie of the bunch to me.
  6. What a fantastic selection of games! Today I got a SMB box with a tetris cart for a £1, mostly because I don't have tetris and a loose copy of SMB Also had some random NEs manuals stuffed in, which was nice. All I need now is a SMB3 box and I'll have a nice little set
  7. We seem to be losing the "Bootsale Booty" and "Check these bargains" threads, maybe because people don't feel their finds are good enough to start a topic, or don't feel its there place, I'm not sure! Maybe we should do what Digital Press doos, and have Monthly Threads, keeps the forums clean, and avoids these sudden abbundances of boot sale threads... abbundances in JULY for petes sake, whoever he is! So, congregrate on these matters, and tell me what you bought this weekend, or throughout last and next week, you charity shopping, cash converting, old woman cleaning out loft and finding boxed NeoGeo AESing dogs!
  8. Yeah, I got £3.50 for it, people must buy N64s and realise the console is empty
  9. I can think of lots of worst things, most of them revolving around £1 boxed games with no carts... Damn you Crazy Taxi 2 and Super Mario Kart. Nothing rare either way, but they were the only finds on a charity/pawn shop run. OH, and also finding out when you get home that your Zelda Collectors Edition 4 game box has the 2 game disc in and your Expansion Pak box has a Jumper Pak in it... IN THE SAME BOOTSALE RUN! Bad times, sold the jumper pak for about half of what I paid, and used the Zelda thing as a shelf filler :/
  10. I would like... for it to stop raining just after the sun has finished drying up the old rain. Both boots could well be cancelled... IN JULY!!
  11. First rule of Carboot sale - Don't talk about Car boot sale. Luckily, around here we don't get that many jackasses, jsut the occasional "How much this I give you £5" and the seller is like "I was going to say £30" or something. I let people look through a box or a rack of CDs and wait till its my turn. If you're in a super market and someone is looking to buy the last can of beans, you don't dump tackle them into the magazine rack and run off with it, you just wait to see if they buy it or not.
  12. What happened to this topic? No worries, July is in full swing meaning having to stop off for drinks halfway round, being covered in sun cream and falling to the ground a few feet from your car in a heat induced faint, smothered by bags of SNES carts. So what did you cool cats get? I have picked up a nice little Ecco the Dolphin, Tides of Time - complete for a measly £1, and then for two smackeroonies, a boxed Super Scope. Might bung that on the bay, might not, its kinda cool. Get posting!
  13. Oooh, Mint Retro Comic for 50p you say? Ok!
  14. Just a lone, complete copy of Sonic 3 on Megadrive for £2, it was spitting with rain, anyhow. I also found another reason not to buy from the game-only stalls, these guys come rain or shine or snow or flood, and they just leave half the stuff (bar consoles) out in the rain, meaning by the time you get it, it's had weeks worth of water in it... ew, not a pretty thought, unlike most of the games we buy which are kept nice and clean in someones cupboard until a sunny morning where we snaffle them up.
  15. I just fired up the ol' ebay train to have a looksie. Diablo 2 Lord of Destruction - Apparently worth £470, seems a little CRAZY, but hey, who knows. The auction started at 55p, I bet that guy must have been over the frickin' moon! Is this game REALLY worth that much? Reflex XTR Flight Simulator - Goes for around £80. i think it has some kind of controller or specific component that the guy in this auction just refers to as a "lead". The very first Ultima with the 5 1/4" game disk, Reference card, Full colour maps, Player Manual, Registration Card and a pouch containing Coins of the Realm goes for a lovely £82 If you see this not complete, make sure you buy it as collectors may be missing a map or part you have. Infocom Masterpieces with 30+ Games on one CD, £72! Heroquest - Hero Quest & Return of the Witch Lord, £60 MONKEY ISLAND BOUNTY PACK, in one of those crazy deep jewel cases, goes for about £50. This thing has 3 discs, so make sure you check! F1 CHALLENGE 1999-2002 BY EA SPORTS, a few pounds shy of £50, not bad for something that'd even some collectors would pass up as boring, but you with your amazing bible of PC pricing as written by The 7 Disciples and McBacon, can pick this up and sell it on the bay. The amazing Secret of Monkey Island in original big box goes for around £47. Actually, any Lucas Arts adventure is worth more than the 50p you will spend, Day of the Tentacle, 2D Indiana Jones games, Monkey Island, Sam and Max, they are always a safe bet if they are big box. Hope that helps, print it out and read the titles 3 times before bed every night till your next bootsale and then BAM, you're in the money. All of these prices are based on items that actually sold, on recent auctions.
  16. RARE PC VERSION FINAL FANTASY VII 7 BIG BOX MINT £41.00 Big Box Final Fantasy VII 7 for PC CDRom (RARE) £33.53 Final Fantasy VII (7) Original Big Box PC Game £28.00 FINAL FANTASY VII 7 £27.01 There is no emoticon for what I'm feeling!
  17. I saw a loose 32X, the guy said it was broken but I could have it for £2 for spares. I put it down as I don't have another broken one to try and fix, and he told me that I didn't know what it was worth Would you have bought it?
  18. If you have a PSP, its awesome on there, easy to control, take it anywhere, perfect for long journeys.
  19. 1. Wow, some actually good games with the systems, it's always Disney crap for me 2. How much did that set you back? I might just be a cheap skate, but I find the usual £10 asking price too much for a GB, especially when I can play the carts on my SP.
  20. Super Mario Sunshine Strategy Guide - 25p I think I need to move sales, there are too many regulars at the MK Bowl, and I always get there late to pick up the pee'd on PS1s and £40 Megadrives.
  21. Yeah, I'm going for less rare, more sought after. Zelda fans, "good games" collectors and nintendo gamers would all want this baby in their mitts. I got mine for £5 complete at a bootsale last year, very nice find
  22. Are you an MKBowler? I think I've seen that Dreamcast too, funny stuff
  23. Both the NES and GBA versions had Mario, Luigi, Peach and Toad.
