Well Travelled Game Boy Cartridge

So much for writing articles on my week off... lol. In the mean time, have this in which I found kinda funny.

So I bought this Game Boy game, Conker's Pocket Tales for $5 from a local hock shop. No biggie right. 
I buy it, turn it over and see this...

It's been previously brought from another local hock shop, which is actually next door to the previous one. 
I found it funny. It must of been stolen from some poor sods house and the sold to the first shop, only to be bought and stolen again and sold to the other shop. That's the funny story in my head anyway because lets face it, a lot of stock in those stores come from questionable places. 

The game it's self is a load of crock. I bought it expecting to play as a hungover squirl because of the N64 game, Conker's Bad Fur Day. Nope, turns out Rare re-did his profile and it turned out as this kiddy, badly done RPG crap. At least I didn't pay $10 for it. 


  1. I lol'd at the laziness of the second-hand stores ;)

  2. Yes, that to. I once brought a non working PSone from one only to return it the next day. I come back a week later and I'm sure that they have just put the broken PSone back on the shelve. I'm sure of this because of some scratches.
