with all that stuff, you may want to try breaking it up into lots and selling it that way, or coming up with individual prices in case someone only wants one thing out of the entire pile of stuff you're putting up. Craigslist can be more like an internet garage sale than an auction site, and people might even be willing to barter if you're up to recouping what you've spent that way.

What's with people saying which threads need to be locked? The moderators know how to do their jobs.

I for one am very interested in this. I didn't think games got removed from the shop channel ever, and I had no idea Mario World was in need of patching.

it's like you're reaching into my brain and posting what I was thinking before I even had the chance to read the thread and realize what I wanted to say. it's kinda... creepy. D:

if the price wasn't a rip-off, I'd go for the SNES and All-Stars, especially if it was the All-Stars+World version. That's three (or four) games in one compared to just the original SSB, which you really need multiple players (and controllers) to have fun with.

@Arctic Friend:
(a) DK'94 was a GBC/ Super Game Boy enhanced game, so it wasn't really just monochrome :)
(b) the original MvsDK featured original levels with similar gameplay, making it more a spiritual sequel to DK'94 than an outright remake of it, and the other two games for the DS and DSi are direct sequels to the original MvsDK for the GBA.

edit: i can't actually remember whether the GBC actually took advantage of the SGB palettes, and I don't have the game anymore to test that, so i guess i can't say that about the GBC for sure, though the colors and border(s?) were definitely there on the SGB :)

Aquia received a 9 from NL, and I swear I can't stand it, it's so freaking boring. :(

As for games not (yet?) reviewed by NL, Kirby: Canvas Curse has plenty of great reviews online, and I did not like that game at all either -- the 'magic paintbrush' thing felt so gimmicky. And Yoshi's Island DS also failed to impress, which was sad -- I still have SMW2: Yoshi's Island for the SNES, and I love that. the addition of the babies did nothing for the game, and the gap between the DS screens was a pretty big blind spot. :/

i hope they at least give you the difference between used and new prices back. though i'd be happy to keep the genuine game, i wouldn't be happy for them to keep the difference when it was obviously used. :/

as for figuring out its authenticity, what game are we talking about? besides the fact that the pirates tend to go for more popular or rare OOP titles (Tetris DS, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time) or games that are still in print and are still very popular (Mario Kart DS), the best way to figure out whether your game is genuine or not is probably going to be the manual... are the fonts on the warnings and stuff all of similar quality? any spelling errors? Mine had a 'Rapetitive Motion Injuries and Eyestrain' warning, lol... that (and other errors in the manual) was the biggest tip-off for me, but there are others, like the positioning of the stamped numbers on the back (if they're there, they should be horizontal), the quality and shape/positioning of the sticker on the front, and the quality of the cart overall in comparison with an actual DS cart.
