Flea Market Game Finds: GameCube Jackpot Edition (6/27/15)


Hey everybody, you may have noticed that I haven't posted one of these videos in a while. That's because the weather in Cincinnati has been absolutely uncooperative the last three weekends. So I actually had to cheat a little bit to actually make this video. These aren't games that I found at a flea market, but I did make a very good deal with someone, a story I explain in the video.

So basically, I hit the GameCube jackpot, if that's a real thing. If you don't want to hear my stories and just want to know what I picked up and for how much, just keep reading past the video (although I would love you forever if you watched the video).

Alright, so everything listed below was from a customer at a friend's shop. We made a deal over the phone, and I spent a total of $45.

So, for $45, I picked up:

Animal Crossing
Donkey Konga 2
Kirby Air Ride
Luigi's Mansion
Mario Kart Double Dash
Mario Party 4
Mario Party 7
Mario Superstar Baseball
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door
Super Mario Strikers
Super Mario Sunshine
Super Smash Bros. Melee
WarioWare: Mega Party Games

Not a bad haul if I do say so myself.

Don't forget you can watch other flea market videos, the upcoming Hall of Game video (later this week), and other things over on the Error Machine YouTube channel.

And of course, check out our podcast!

Greetings and salutations.

TheDustinThomas here, you probably don't know me, but I write things here on Destructoid from time to time. Occasionally I get on the front page:

The Most Inexplicably-Often Rented Games At Blockbuster

The Top 10 Videogame Pro Wrestlers

A Retrospective of Pro Wrestling Videogames from the Perspective of a Pro Wrestler

I'm also the host of a pretty sexy gaming podcast that I do with a couple buddies of mine. You can download and subscribe to it here. You should totally do that.

All of my games writing you can find on DToid, but I also write about other things on my personal blog. Here's my top 5 most read blogs:

Let Me Tell You About My $250 T-Shirts

Tempting of the Doon

5 Ways Getting in Shape Has Messed with my Head

Tim Lambesis: A Fan's Struggle to Understand

Why I Already Dislike Planet Fitness

You may notice that most of those blogs are somehow related to pro wrestling. Why? Because I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler before retiring in October 2013 due to back injuries. I actually wasn't too bad.

A bit about me? Well, obviously I love to write. It's not a paying gig yet, but I'm certainly trying to make that happen.

I'm a happily married man, and my wife is smokin' hot.

I have a huge, manly beard.

God comes first in my life above all else. I'm a leader at my church, as well as the head of our media department.

I've been a metalhead pretty much my entire life.

I'm also a die hard fan of The Simpsons.

Other miscellaneous fact.
