I've tried to unload my stuff here before and nobody seems to want it.
I have the CCI,CCII,CCIII "Inside Moves" books.
Those are the perfect bound books that are strategy guides for those games.
Also have all the Old CC games and GI Combat.(maybe I got boxes maybe I don't,I'd have to look,probably not)
And maybe the magazine with the original CCM in it (Maybe,I don't know,I'd have to look through a TON of shit to find it which will probably drive up the price just because I'm pissed at having to look for it) :)
Make an offer right here right now.
I'd give it till summer time before it all goes to the trash,salvation army,whoever.
I'm tired of looking at moving,relocating CRAP I don't use,never used,never will use.
Should have sold that crap when the prices were high on ebay.
Now look at me.
Begging you to take my crap.
Ofcourse some will say they've been taking it for years .........................aaaahhhhh ha ha

I've had a few moves in the last few years where boxes of games / dvd's / books / computer parts etc were taken with us and every time I say "I should sort that crap out when we've settled in"
I have culled cassette tapes, vhs tapes, dvd's to the bin
But not vinyl albums or cd's - I still cant part with them yet.
A lot of collected game cd's have gone, but theres still a few I keep. Lots of CC5 mods have gone, I can always get them again.
We recently started using SPOTIFY, it's early days but I can see this replacing an mp3 collection oneday, which replaced the cd's which replaced the tapes and vinyl.
I think over the next 5 tears we will see the end of software as we know it, ie downloading, installing, updating, collecting, as it all moves to the cloud and the computer / laptop dissapears and is replaced by a tablet / chip in the neck.

But, I always preferred "Plants vs Zombies".
Well, as it turns out, I am gonna give up Rome Total War Gold as well.
Its a great game. I just have no idea how this stuff is actually going to be distributed, and to whom. Surely its going to go to someone, who only plays DOOM or someone who doesn't have a PC. But Carol said they have a whole box of software titles that are being included.
BTW, the digital downloads apart from CCMT, I rank pretty much at the bottom of the list as far as enertainment goes. I know WitP is enormously popular, but I thought it to be a senseless time bender. Kinda like this thread.
Oh well, this simplifies what I will be doing during the holidays (dont say Christmas).
Me thinks, had CCMT been on CD, it would have gone too.
