    Edit: What's the cheapest way to ship media right now?

    First class for games. For all else you can use media mail (movies, music, etc.). If you order boxes online, the USPS has padded envelopes for priority mail that are nice (but of course you have to ship them priority).

    PS2 Games
    Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits <- Shipped
    Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty <- Shipped/Received
    Xenosaga: Episode 1 <- Shipped/Received
    Boogie (no mic)

    Cheapest shipping gets priority (Ontario). Not that I expect these to fly off my shelf but I can't afford to pay $20 shipping for a $2 game.

    Well the only N64 games I found last night were: NBA Hangtime and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. I'll keep looking but those are it so far. :P

    I know that people are primarily giving away games, but would anyone be interested in some DVDs and books as well?

    To discourage future PMs, a forumer got the code already folks.

    Ah dammit, I was just about to shoot you a PM. :P

    I think I have some DVDs and old PC games that I never use. Will add them later once I make sure I can get the cheap postage.

    I bought the Metal Gear Solid: The Essential Collection a few years ago because I'm a collector. I now have 2 copies of Metal Gear Solid 2 & 3 for the PS2. As much as it pains me, I know the copies of those games need a good home to be played in. So, I need to let them be free. The original copies, not the collection edition ones.

    PS2 - Metal Gear Solid 2
    PS2 - Metal Gear Solid 3

    Send me a PM and they are yours in 6 to 8 weeks. A dirty limerick would be nice too.

    I will add to this list as I uncover more stuff that I want to get rid of, but here's what's up for grabs as of right now. If you, by chance, live in Los Angeles and want to pick this up instead of forcing me to ship it, that would be rad.

    Edit: Everything is gone now. Thanks for helping me out.

    Cable Giveaway!!!

    So thought it was time to clear out my cables and rather than get molested by a Craigslister or choke on patchouli wafting from a Freecylcer, I decided to offer them to you.

    Not gonna lie, it's a mixed bag. Everything is in good shape and as far as I know, works fine. Broke it down into categories for hopefully easier dispersal. Will describe a little more in each group, but have Network/PC, A/V, Apple, and Kensington Power.

    Feel free to send a PM requesting multiple categories, but will "award" top requests first, so PM me your list with your first choice first. US only, probably sent in flat rate or something. So here goes!

    NETWORK - Mix of Cat5/5e cables, mostly 3 or 6ft but a few longer in there plus a crossover, a FireWire, some USB, an RJ-11 or two, plus a VGA.
    5922987267_ef7fdda903.jpg


    AUDIO/VIDEO - An assortment of older standards like S-Video, RCA, and adapter cables like RCA to 3.5mm TRRS. Several Monster cables in the mix (yeah, I know), including a Monster coax. Length varies, but most are 3 or 6ft. Again, all older standards but in good shape.
    5922987043_e792ea1edf.jpg


    APPLE/IPOD - Mix of Ipod and Apple Powerbook cables, mostly several iPod dock cables, including two FireWire cables and a FW wall wort. Also some RJ-11s because they're white, and some mini-DVI adapters that work with my old 12" Powerbook. Not pictured, will send old iPod universal dock with a/v out if I find it.
    5923551202_d50ec6f403.jpg


    KENSINGTON POWER - Most of you are too young to remember the 'tip' fad of electronics. We are all foolish back then, buying into the Tip Revolution, thinking we could make a difference and take down Big Converter with a universal system. We had our hair 'tipped' but our ideals lost charge. So now you can try your hand with these 'travel charger systems'.

    Love this idea. I got a ton of "junk" in the basement I need to clean up that I'm sure would be useful to someone else. Once I get to cleaning up, I'll post it here. Lots of cables, old tech, and misc video game stuff.

    Oh man, I would do anything for an iPod/iPhone cable or two! I don't need the jack that goes into the wall or a dock or anything, my cable got mangled shortly after I got my 3GS. I live in Japan though.

    Yeah, I like it. Swedish chocolate is actually really great if you know what brands to get. That wasn't even gourmet shit, that was like the run-of-the mill (albeit the rather good) brand.

    I think I got you both the Daim variant, the one with the uh stuff mixed in, the hard toffee thing. It's one of my favorites.

    I've got an interesting one...

    I AM NOT GOING TO SHIP THIS

    I have one of those Demo Kiosks from Gamestop.. it's the Gamecube one. It works last time I checked. 2 controllers, gamecube, some demo disc, tv, demo tower. Heavy as shit.

    If you live anywhere near Moorestown, New Jersey and you want to pick this up... PM me.

    Don't feel like dealing with craigslist creepers...

    Here's an odd one.

    I have an extra DISC 2 of Resident Evil Remake for the Game Cube. I highly doubt anyone wants it, but I know I had a hell of a time looking for just a lone DISC 1, and ended up purchasing a whole other copy after giving up.

    So if you too have been unsuccessful in your hunt for a single disc of Resident Evil Remake, today is your lucky day! If you somehow lost DISC 2 - I will send it to you, free free FREE!

    I PASS THE SAVINGS ON TO YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOU
