Bid snipers can suck my dick.

I found a Sega CD console for 99 cents with a day and a half left. It was selling for cheap because it was billed as "non-functional," but I know my Sega hardware and I knew the Genesis was at fault. With my technical advantage in place, I quickly whipped out my mouse pointer and bid 99 cents for a Sega CD that I thought nobody else would buy because they thought it would be DOA, when it would actually boot up right out of the box.

Fast forward to 10:04 PM EST Last Night - An hour ago, I got the whole machine ready for "Sniper Mode." FireFox and IE open on the bidding site, fully logged in, $5 bid itching to be clicked in IE in the event of a cheap cocksucking asshole.

And he bid $5.50 with four seconds left.

FUCKING SHIT!

Lucky for me, I kid I know at school will sell me his for $50, plus a copy of Sonic CD (Word). At least I get a piece of rare software with that one.

Anyone else here been fucked over by snipers?

Why?

What the fuck do you want a Sega CD for anyways? It sucks. You can probably download an emulator if you want to play the games for nostalgia purposes.

$50 seems like a lot for obsolete gaming equipment.

Let me state the reasons:

1. I already have a Genesis 1, Genesis 2, a Genesis Nomad (Portable handheld), and a Sega 32X. I want the complete U.S. Genesis set, so naturally I want both a Sega CD 1 and Sega CD 2, Sega Genesis 3, and a Sega CDX (Sega Genesis/Sega CD/Portable AA Battery CD player all-in-one).

2. Emulators cannot give you the true "feel" of a system, unless you have the balls to build a mini PC in a Sega CD 1 casing (My friend is doing that). I don't care about the controller adapters, I need the physical feel of as console.

3. I'm a Sega junkie, which is obvious. Look at my avatar, it's the old Sega ad where the Genesis and 32X are fucking on a bed!

I actually have a great social life! The only issue is that I cannot really go into it here, because it is all mainly inside jokes and shit!

I am ChilianFuckFace, no longer FuckFace.

I am glad you have a great life. It just sounds like you don't, since you sound like such a nerd. Which is not a bad thing. The problem is that most nerds do not get enough pussy. And that is a bad thing. :thumbsup:

What, getting pussy from your Russian-Italian friend who's bisexual isn't a good thing :naughty:?

What the fuck? Feel of a console? What feel? Do you rub it while you play? It's a box with a fucking power button. Kind of like a computer.

Feel of a Console = Cheap ass TV adapter card.

Ebay sniping is a way of life. That's how you buy shit. Always has been, always will be. Ebay loves it, the sellers love it because it drives the sale prices UP. Ebay dealt with the issue by adding the "BUY IT NOW" feature. (Yeah, I know, not all auctions use Buy it Now.)

Sorry dude, but I'm a gaming purist. If I want to play Shadow Squadron, I have to have that feeling of removing the old cartridge and slapping this new bastard into the 32X.

Likewise, if I want to play Sega Marine Fishing on my Dreamcast (God I fucking love that game!) I have to have the whole console and fishing controller setup.

It ain't the same to me...
