1. Video Game: Batman: Arkham Asylum [Average Rating:8.25 Overall Rank:32]

I forgot to include this in last month's list, so I'll pop it in here since I happened to check it again this morning.

I was looking through the front case in Goodwill with my son last week for a few minutes before looking at the big black box on top of the counter (in fact, I'd moved it around trying to look through the glass under it LOL).

When I made out the letters I noticed this was the Batman Arkham Asylum Collector's Edition box! I'd been wanting to pick up the well-regarded game for quite awhile, as my son played the demo many times.

I looked through it and was surprised to see the cool "leather-bound" journal, the batarang, the game and even the codes for the armored suit and the combat map. And the codes worked when we got them home! laugh

$8.99 @ Goodwill

Finally, I picked up this game at Goodwill for $2.99, cartridge in excellent condition and sleeved with the manual.

I left behind several other games which I owned already (Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3, Dr. Mario, Pac-Man, Tetris) and one I had never heard of (Big Nose the Caveman).

5. Video Game Hardware: Xbox 360 S

First time posting to this list, and it's a fairly good one I think.

Found at a garage sale in Fairfield OH:

Xbox 360 4gb model with normal 1 controller/all cords,etc
Xbox Live Gold Starter kit (keyboard/headset)
Xbox 360 red wireless controller
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Mass Effect 2

All for the grand total, of $70. The 360 had a receipt with it, it was only a month old. Apparently the person bought it and now has to move out of state and can't take it with them. Oh well, grabbed it in a heartbeat.
