Thrift Store Junkie #10


It has been awhile since I have posted anything under the Thrift Store Junkie banner, but the winter where I live means there are no more yard sales and flea markets. This is going to be a quick post as I have yet to play any of the games in the post and there are not that many items this time. I also doubt that I will have much of anything cool to post for Thrift Store Junkie till March or so. Anyway, on to the meat of the post…

I picked up these 3 items at a Goodwill store about a month ago. Spiderman on DVD was $2.00 and the other two games were $3.00. Hard Drivin’ for Sega Genesis is a game that I have always wanted to own. It’s not the best game in the world, but I have a soft spot for all racing games. I remember playing this game in the arcades and loving it to death, it was the closest thing to driving a real car that I was going to get back when I was about half the size I am nowadays. The other game that I picked up was Aladdin for Sega Genesis. Back in the day Disney made some kick ass video games, almost everything they pumped out during the Genesis and SNES days rocked. The animation and sound was always some of the best any 3rd party developer was pumping out. They even put out some good stuff on the PS1, but after that it was hit or miss for them. Some games were good, some not so much. I played a lot of this game when I was young and I can’t wait to try it out again(probably next weekend).

Last weekend I went with my parents to a Goodwill store near their house and my Mom picked me up these two games. I have never played The Godfather or The Sopranos for PS2 but I plan on sitting down with my brother-in-law sometime soon and checking these both out(an hopefully playing through both of them). The Sopranos game was still wrapped and it was only $3! From looking through the instruction manuals and looking at the back of the boxes I am most excited to play The Godfather, but I’m hoping that both turn out to be good games.

Thats it for this update, sorry that it was a little short. I plan to post another Thrift Store Junkie post again in March or later.
