    Don't hold out for any particular game 'cause it may never come up for sale. Just keep looking around and play some games, you'll know it's the one when you see it! To me theme is as important as the art work, so make sure it's got some meaning for you. As long as the seller shows that it's 100% playable and can power off and power up again you should be good. The key to maintaining an EM is to "play it" ... keeps the contacts clean. Just give it a good look-over for missing/broken plastics and PF parts, BG flaking, and cabinet water damage. Those are the biggies. Good luck!

    Quoted from Otaku:

    But: Rule of thumb is don't fix anything or even tweak anything while you're there because then what happens is it starts to work and they charge more since it's "fixed". Happens a lot apparently.

    True that! I try not to even look at the batteries for fear of getting caught.
