Every day i go to the thrift store and usually pick up (decently rated) dvds i dont have. but last week they got in some GBC and GBA games. normally this thrift store doesnt get much of anything for gaming.  so i noticed the games in the case and took a few out to buy and left a few.  little did i know that the one i left was the valuble one lol. i didnt think much of it since 95% of gbc games are around 3 to 10 dollers.  i also asked in the back if they had anything. the guy pulled an atari 2600 with some games and controllers out. the atari had a broken power switch so he gave me the atari lot for 3 dollers.  i took it home ordered a new switch off ebay and fixed it.

fast foward a week. the game wendy every witch way was still sitting on the shelf. it had a price tag over it so i though at first it was sabrina the teenage witch. so i decided to get it anyways. once again i didnt know it was worth anything till i decided to look it up today. i paid 3 dollars for it. turns out it was worth around 55.   (all the gba and gbc game were 3 dollars or 2 dollars)

i also found out why this store doesnt get much its cause theres a guy that has every thing put to the side.  that kinda annoyed me since ive asked them to set aside stuff for me but they never do...  just this time he didnt claim his bag of games today.  also... the wendy game wasnt in his bag.  and i just happen to know who their holding the stuff for too. i buy from him he usually gives me good deals.  i just wish he wasnt everywhere XD

So anyways thats my finds for the week

Nice grab. Not sure where you are getting the $55 for that game. What am I missing.

I did. Averaging it out I put it around 30-35 like GVN. But yeah $55 may be the real high side.

Either way, to pick it up for $3 is still a real nice deal.

Nice finds. Yeah I never pass you a cartridge that I've never seen if it's fairly reasonable because for one thing I like to collect and play most any game & it might be a hidden gem as icing on the cake.

It takes a bit to get used to that mechanic. A lot of the platforming puzzles rely on switching back and forth in succession to get past them.

It does remind me of Shantae a bit.

From what you guys are saying it seems like a mix of MetalStorm and VVVVVV... which sounds pretty awesome.

It is very awesome. I'd go as far as to say I like the art direction better in Wendy than in Metalstorm, probably the only one in that camp though
