    Thanks. I had that preordered the moment it became available. Very happy to have a complete set of the serie.

    A very recent pick up, the Australian only special edition. Soundtrack, artbook and a replica of the Scarborough Fair. Only 1500 made world wide.

    The picture on the back of that Kratos action figure box looks way too skinny. Looks like he shriveled up.

    I can finally start playing this gem of a serie. My OCD prevents me from playing any series if I don't own all the physical copies and today was the day. Funny thing is to this day, I still have to find in the wild the first one on the ps1. Oh well Alter Code F should cover it up. One day I'll have the actual full set.

    And some rare/uncommon things. The GT's were only released in Japan before GT prologue. Then it was pulled and was only available digitaly. When GT5 FINALLY got released, they pulled it digitaly as well, so if you didn't download it then, then this is your only chance playing it. It has one track and a handful of cars to play.
    The Fish dude is a very common game loose, however CIB it's a different ball game. eBay and other sites have no listing at all for a CIB. Apparently it's somewhat rare (speculations).

    Congrats on picking up those games.
    I was very happy when I managed to get a copy of Gran Turismo HD on Yahoo Auctions. I think it was the only time I used that site.

    I rarely get any accessories for any console but I could not pass on this one, the Playstation 3d display, barely used CIB with two glasses for $80. First thing first this offers a unique feature, namely the simulview which is awesome. Basically it allows for some games to have couch multiplayer with both players having their own full screen (granted you have two 3d glasses) as opposed to crappy split screen. The sound on the TV is awful so keep your Bluetooth headphones for a more immersing experience. Now my only problem, was that the display didn't come with a remote and setting up or controlling the volume was a pain in the lower back up until I discovered the second generation of ps3 BD remote for ps3 (the one on the left). This bad boy comes with an IR blaster in addition to the Bluetooth capability of the first generation remote. Now I can get fatter sitting on my bacons. So yeah be on the lookout usually they go for $30 but I got this for $8.

    Thanks a lot. That deal took me 5 months to make. The original owner wanted top dollar because there is only one archived listing on eBay for it. He ended up letting it go for way less than he initially wanted for.

    I have been looking for this game for a little while now CIB. It is a very hard game to come by and my only chance of getting it was an overpriced crushed box one from eBay. Just pick this up locally for a very decent price, and as a bonus it's sealed.

    "sealed" is always the best bonus in the videogame world:)

    Long time due update:

    So here is my GB collection so far. It is my new priority to get more in the upcoming months.

    [​IMG]
    Two new addition to the PS3 library. Both are region exclusive and very hard to come by in NA, especially Ra-One (which is a mediocre game). Syberia is still manageable to get through eBay at very decent price if you are fan of the series.

    And finally the original Wild Arms, though I did not really needed it because of Alter Code F, it was still bugging me for my official and final full set.
