  1. From the local Salvation Army store (sometimes it pays to be persistent):

    Wing Commander IV: The Price of Freedom, DOS 6-CD edition. In its original box, with a slightly ripped slipcover, all six CD's in great condition, small manual, large manual, instruction cards, limited-edition lithograph ordering form, official strategy guide, and one trading card. Ebay's got these for $30-$60, I paid $20.

    Bioforge, DOS CD-ROM. Included the manual, CD in original case with instruction booklet inside, quickstart cards. I paid $5 for it.

    RC Pro-Am, NES, cartridge only, $2.

    God, I love shopping used-junk stores! Last time I scored something this awesome was at a Goodwill several months ago - somehow managed to get Outlaws, The Dig, The 7th Guest, and Total Annihilation for a grand total of less than $20. And before that, a Sega CD system for $7.

    Considering I check stores like this every week or so, I'm usually in the loop in regards to what new stuff has come in...they don't usually get this sort of stuff in, and when they do they don't tend to realize how much it's worth to an oldgamer like myself!

      Not bad, but kind of on the high end in terms of price for what I usually get for junk store diving. I'm a Flea Market junkie myself, but generally for LPs and nice 70s stereo equipment. How is Bioforge? I never played many of those DOS "movie style" games, at least not in the fantasy genre.

      If you played RTC-3057 Hub 1, you pretty much know what Bioforge is like - except Bioforge has fewer demons and guns, and more trying to figure out how to operate the terminals and robotic nurses.

      Seriously - seems like the RTC team took a lot of inspiration from Bioforge. I don't blame 'em, either.

      Bioforge seemed like such a great game, unfortunately I could never solve that goddamn puzzle where you have to hold the hand up to the scanner and do something at the same time. I was probably like 2 pixels off the ideal location and never knew it.

      I also have a boxed copy of Bioforge from a thrift store. It's a very interesting game but the controls are really painful.
