SEPT. 2016 DUMPSTER DIVE FINDS

3 Xbox 360's - 2 working 1 red ring (one xbox had a 320gb HD)
1 PS3 - working
14 Xbox 360 games ( Plus 2 headsets, 2 controllers, component cable )
4 PS3 games (plus one controller - not pictured)
8 Wii games
1 ps4 game
1 xbox one game
7 steam codes for PayDay 2, Brothers, and How to Survive.
A couple advertisement peices. ( Deus Ex cloth posters 30, and EA arm bands for madden 17)

On a side note I could have had more guide books but not only is GameStop ripping off the front covers but they are not tossing the front covers out?? Seems they are getting sneaking when it comes to guide books at least. I have seen this from a few GameStops over the past month. I wounder how long they will hold on to the covers before they toss those out?

AUG. 2016 DUMPSTER DIVE FINDS

2 Xbox 360's - both working with DVD remote, 1 wired controller and 1 turtle beach headset.
1 PS3 - Works complete with all cords and controller (controller works but charge port is a little messes up)
16 Xbox 360 games
1 Xbox One game
2 Original Xbox games
7 PS3 games
2 Wii games and a couple controllers
2 Nintendo DS games
1 PSP game
A couple advertisement peices (Division posters and lots of Doom promo stuff and a bunch of lanyards).
8 guide books
1 LEGO Demensions Kiosk

Posting my AUG finds a few days early cause I found just a ton of stuff this month.


There were like 100 plus brand new guide books in the dumpster I was only able to salvage these 8. They took a razor blade to them all.
Image

All games were buffed using the new JFJ easy pro that I bought last month using cash from selling stuff I got from the dumpster. Headset, controller, everything works!

I'm not a lego fan but this was to cool to leave in the dumpster. I'm not sure but there seems to be some type of mini PC running it, simular to a Rasberry Pi but not really. Here are some pics of the board. http://turdinc.kicks-ass.net/images/X/
I was thinking of maybe using it to build a mini table top arcade but I need to figure out what the hell they are using and if I could put mame on it or something. It has a ethernet port, SD slot, and all so who knows.
Here is a YouTube video I made of it.

I've alwasy liked Doom so I've been collecting anything Doom related I find. This is stuff I have found for Doom over the past few months not just in Aug.
I'm guessing some kind of Doom launch kit that contained some promo stuff.
There were a bunch of cards for all the characters.
My favorite is the cover art that looks like it was signed by all the main Doom dudes.

July 2016 DUMPSTER DIVE FINDS

2 Xbox 360's - both working
1 PS3 - worked but no HDMI out put only A/V (sold very next day - yes they knew about the HDMI)
8 Xbox 360 games
14 PS3 games
4 Wii games
A couple advertisement peices.

Because of the large amount of games I've been getting I decided to sell a bunch of the 360 consoles i've gotten over the past 7 months also sold a PS3 and a Wii.
I used some of the money to buy a JFJ easy pro disc repair machine. Just let me say real quick this machine is the SHIT! I love it!

The PS2 stuff was sitting near the dumpster behind goodwill. I have found lots of good stuff here. It's where people drop off stuff after goodwill closes I guess.
The fan on the 360 was from another dive I had. I just put it on this 360 cause it matched better as this was one of the shiny 360's

New dumpster dive finds for the month of Oct. check first post.

I'm a little pissed at GameStop over these Gear Pack cards though, as my son pre ordered this game and was suppose to receive a pack of these cards but never did. It's obvious that gamestop opened up at least 50 packs of these cards and took out most of the better cards. They did leave me a few good ones that I was able to give to my son but I still think it's pretty low of them!

No I don't have any bad feelings at all by raiding their dumpsters. If I don't do it either someone else will or it will all end up in a landfill.

I have a pretty good start for Nov. so far, here is a video I took the other night.

Yup it worked no problem. I've found about 30 of them since Jan 2016 and maybe 2 didn't work.
