Also available at the same store: GBA version of Super Mario Bros., a 23 year old game.

Cost of Super Mario Bros. when it was new in 2005: $20.

Cost of Super Mario Bros. in 2008, used: $25.



This industry is fucking daffy.

Most likely the idiot who priced it didn't know it was a discounted game back in 2005.

I bought Armored Core: For Answer new for twenty bucks, but a friend of mine could only find it used, and it was still priced at fifty-five dollars. They wouldn't lower the price for the used copy.

You got OG2, too? Impressive if you did. (I like OG1 better in the final analysis, but my reasons for that could fill about forty paragraphs, I'm afraid.) And yes, the industry really is daffy. How else could I get good ol' "collectible" God Hand for $10?

Yep, I have both OG1 and OG2, right next to me. XD

Since you've got both, here's a little protip that'll help you, since your recent OG posts have kinda gotten a double take out of me on one particular point.

If you refer to the GBA games, those are Original Generation or OG1 / OG2. Original Generations, on the other hand, refers to the (import-only) PS2 remake that contains (expanded, super-pretty) versions of both games. We also call that OGs for that. Original Generation Gaiden, or OGG, is the direct sequel.

I give you the protip because you keep referring to Original Generations and it confuses me at first glance, since it makes me think of the PS2 game. ^_^;

Anyway! I hope you enjoy both games immensely, but do be aware – you probably already know this, but a reminder doesn't hurt – that OG2 is much harder than OG1 and cannot be played the same way.

Oh! I also got Mobile Suit Gundam: Encounters in Space. $15. Good deal?

Excellent deal. EIS is almost as good, control-wise, as Gundam VS. Zeta Gundam, but it gives you the added benefit of covering a number of U.C. stories you haven't seen / played yet; its 0083 segment is particularly good.
