This is a classic thread.
I never got any creative artwork in my used games... >.>

Instead, when lil bro got me Soul Calibur 2 for XMas used, it came in this skinny white thing.

I used my new computer program to make my own coverart. It was kinda neat for a first try, but now that I'm more proficient with Photoshop, I think I'm gonna make a new one.

^^^^Surely important enough to make a post about that you remember this from our former haven, huh? ;)

I mean, c'mon, he even said that he once posted this on LT before! :P

Hey, if I noticed it, that's basically saying one of two things:

1. It was a very popular thread and laster long enough for me to see it when I visited every 1-2 times monthly.
2. It got lucky.

Try analytical reading!

Well, the only literal bad thing about buying a used game was the ironic fact that one of the file names in Diddy Kong Racing was "ASS" (no joke).

However, one technically bad thing happened with one of my other used games, Super Metroid. When I bought it from eBay, the seller said it was one of the best games of all time and it was one of his favorites. Alright, I agree since it's tied for first as my favorite game of all time. When I turn it on, THE HORRORS! There was only one active file, and it only had one energy tank! *gasp*! I mean, he didn't have any files with the game beaten, or at least any progress made! Just one crappy file! THE INHUMANITY!!! He could've at least deleted it...

Maybe he just deleted all of his saves and replaced them with that one lousy file just to mess with whoever bought it.

Yeah, i don't really have any new stories to tell since the last time i posted in this thread some months ago.

How is that ironic?
