Thriftosomatic

 
I decided to make a lose log of the games I end up playing over the course of a week it always end up be a strange mix lets take a look at what I played.



First up is Pinball FX 2 on the XBONE, Free to download with one table, I hate this way of doing things but the free table was that good I ended up buying a pack for £7.99 with four more

Street fighter 3rd strike on Dreamcast, One of my go to fighting games for a quick 5mins play now and again and one of the best fighting games on dreamcast. 
 My mate Carl and I finally got round to playing some spider on PS1, Like pandemonium its a 2D platformer with 3D levels, With epic FMV scatted about the game It still totally holds up!


I fired up the C64 to try out a few tapes I haven't got round to testing, Elvira be the first game I loaded up, Maybe one of the worst games I have played on C64, I didn't have a clue what I was doing and the game play didn't warrant me finding out its pants!
 Loading up RockFord, This popped up, Invade-a-Load! and its awesome while the taped loading you can play Space invaders clone, How they get this all on a tape is amazing 64k and all of it put to good use.

Rockford its self is not bad, Its a push the block try not to get squished deal, Goes on for a bit to seems to be lots of levels all varying in colour and lay out.

Double Dragon on C64, This game is hard on NES but the C64 version is Solid the first guy kicked my ass, I put it down to the joystick but when I tried a different one I didn't fair any better this is super hard or maybe I am shit at games one of the two.




Street hassle, Lots of fun this one lampooning games like double dragon and final fight, complete with fights with granny's and Big apes.

So from Xbox one to C64 and a few in-between, Fanboys take note, So on To the Thrifting and What a Thrift it was I found loads of Stuff this time, Some rare some for keeps and Some trade fodder the perfect balance. The pic above is a lot of shitty fifa games they are getting out of hand in all the charity shops of late.
In Cash converters, Sly 2 and Sly 3 both complete for 99p each, £1.60 and £1.80 Trade and both retail for about £5 so worth picking up. There is a HD collection for the trilogy on PS3 so the price is down on the PS2 Versions

Strangest Thing, I was listening to Richard Herrings Leicester Square theatre podcast and the guest was Jon ronson who wrote the book The men who stare at Goats, They where talking about the film when I look up in a charity shop and its right in front of me, So I bought it Weird.

Crash bandicoot 5 once more for 99p Still £2 cash £3 in Cex Retail about £6-8 so always worst picking up and this one was complete and in good con

Two Disney Cars games for Wii £1.50 each, Trade £4 cash £2, both retail about £8 so totally paid off with these finds.
Star wars Republic commando for Xbox, £15-£20 on ebay for this one, £1.99 in British heart foundation, Finding this pretty much covered the cost of all the other games.

My best Find of the Day, Capcom digital collection for £2! includes Super Street Fighter HD Remix, Final fight double impact, Bionic commander, Commando 3, 1942 joint strike,rocketmen and flock Retail about £10 this one is going on the shelf.
 
Gunbird,RoboCop,Spiderman 3,Xmen legends 2, Apart from robocop the rest where to play, Robocop is worth about £8 on ebay so I will sell that one.
Another great title for resale Silent Hill Origins for 99p, This looked brand new and for 99p its a total steel, Ebay will be round the £12 mark.

Midway Treasures 1 and 2, Some great games on these two collections I already have these so some Ebay fodder, At 99p each there is always a bit of room for a profit and in good con some easy good feedback.
Grid and Juiced 2 for £2 each, Great price with for PS3 games in a dove house, £2 cash £3 Trade on Grid and £5 cash £6 trade on Juiced not bad will have a go on these first always give random racing games a go.
Kicking up at my mate Gaff after a epic thrift we kick back and try robocop emulated on his P.C its not a bad FPS from 2002, Right then until next time I am of to Finish watching the AVGN movie, Peace out.
