ChillyBilly's Emporium of Curious Collectibles: Summertime Collecting

I promise that this post will remain 100% Al-Qaeda free.

You know what I love about the summer? The traditional videogame slump. I love the fact that during the summer I can weeks without having the need to plop down 60 bucks on some AAA title. You know why I love that?

So I can build my collection up of course!

I'm gonna keep the words to a minimum this time around because there will be pictures a plenty.

The first thing that I want to show everyone is this:

You may remember seeing something familiar in my last post (Awesome stuff from Funktastic) but this time it's FRAMED! Damn, doesn't that look sweet? Thank again Funk, I totally owe you one.

Now on to the goodies!

Following tradition I will start with something old then work my up, the first thing we have is:

NES Cleaning Kit I have no idea why I've been wanting one of these but I have and now I own one. Whoop dee doo.

My attempt to own every single damn Game Boy ever is slowly but surely getting there, here we have:

Yellow Game Boy Pocket (FIXED!, thanks Enkido) I'm only missing a couple of colors which I will hopefully have by the next post.

These games came with the above Game Boy Tennis and Donkey Kong Land III

Now before we continue I need to say something to Funk, you are and will always be the ATLUS guy and I promise I am not trying to take that away from you. =)

With that being said;

Snowboard Kids 2 for the N64. This is the first of many ATLUS games that we will see in this post.

Some random N64 games: 007, Hexen, Cruis'n U.S.A and Body Harvest (all Goodwill finds).

Here are a couple Nintendo handheld cases thrown in for fun;

Here are a couple more ATLUS games that I mentioned above;

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raiden Kuzunoa vs. Abaddon & Eternal Poison

Here are a few more PS2 games;

Maximo & Gungrave

Sonic Mega Collection and Phantom Brave

I've also been trying to grow my Xbox and GameCube collections, here some games that I came across;

Crazy Taxi (Gamecube) & Soul Calibur II (Xbox)

Ninja Gaiden & True Crime L.A

That was it for the GC/PS2/Xbox stuff. On to something a bit more recent.

I was super happy when I found this next item;

Nintendo DS Browser - managed to snag it for under 10 bucks which made me happy.

The next few pics will be Nintendo DS heavy!

Meteos & Phoenix Wright

Bomberman Land Touch and Moon

Rhythm Heaven & the AWESOME Dragon Quest IV (seriously, if you own a DS you need to play this, there is so much for everyone)

Oh look, more ATLUS!

Deep Labrynth & Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor Deep Labrynth is still sealed and only cost $5.00 (F.Y.E had it on clearance).

Advance Wars: Dual Strikeand Spectrobes. I bought Spectrobes at GameStop during their current sale and it only cost me $1.32. I had to get it to go with the wicked stylus that Funktastic sent me.

Here's another I bought during GameStop's sale, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days & From the Abyss

I have no idea why I bought this next game, probably because it was only $5.00 at Toys R Us:

Desktop Tower Defense

Anyone else here a Club Nintendo member? I always forget to use my points but this time I remembered!

Game & Watch Collection 1 Awwwww...they even sent a thank you card. So sweet.

Look what else I got from the Club!

I wanted the Mario poster set but it is currently sold out. I still have over 600 coins so hopefully they will get some more in.

Alright, we're almost done.

Here we have;

De Blob & Mario Super Sluggers - Trauma Center: Second Opinion & Octomania (more ATLUS awesomeness)

I found this at Goodwill for a dollar:

I don't think i'll ever use it but for a dollar I couldn't pass it up.

It was a slow couple months for my PS3 collection;

Disgea 3: Absence of Justice

Last Rebellion

My PSP Collection however fared much, much better;

Yggdra Union, Class of Heroes & Disgea: Afternoon of Darkness

Disgea: Infinite, Disgea 2: Dark Hero Days & Guilty Gear XX Accent Core Plus

WTF (Work Time Fun), Riviera & Ys: The Ark of Napishtim

Neverland Card Battles

And finally:

Prinny. Can I Really Be The Hero? Special Edition

Ok, just a few more Xbox 360 games then this madness will be all over.

If you haven't played this yet you should;

Singularity So far it's one of my favorite surprises of the year. Singularity is a solid shooter which borrows (heavily) from various AAA titles.

Oh look, more ATLUS games!

Conan (because I lost my other copy), Zoids Assault and Spectral Force 3

I bought these two just last week from GameStop since they had them marked down, WAAAY down. Turok & TimeShift were only $3.99 and will make for some good mindless fun in the coming months.

And here we have the last game of the post. It's an oldie but goody:

Gears of War. I picked this up as well from GameStop's deal for under $5.00. I had loaned my original copy to a friend oh about four years ago and figured I would never see it again so since the price was right I decided to pick it up again.

Well that's about it. I don't think I'll be making another post like this til the fall as I'm gonna take a small break on my collecting to focus on some other stuff.

Happy gaming and have a great night!

About ChillyBillyone of us since 7:08 PM on 02.03.2007

I'm the former Community Playdate Manager for Destructoid. Looking to play some games with other Dtoiders? Check out the forums and watch the blogs and front page for all of the fun!

I'm definitely more "collector" than gamer these days. Sure I still play my Wii U/ Xbox One/PS4/Vita and 3DS, and I love them all, but I just don't have the free time to play them like I used to.

I started my gaming life on an old Atari 2600 that my dad bought us for Christmas. I used to frequent the local arcade (early 80's) and I have a passion for anything pinball.

As of this update (2/20/2016) I currently have:

50 Consoles
61 Handhelds
2100 physical copies of various games
350 digital copies of games
Tons of other video game related items

Comic books? Yep, I read 'em. Here are some of my all-time favorites.

Cerberus the Aardvark

Groo the Wanderer

Howard the Duck

Usagi Yojimbo


I also love music, all types really. If I had to pick a favorite album of all time I would have to go with:

The Cure: Disintegration. This album is perfect, from beginning to end.

My daughter is also a gamer of sorts, here she is lavishing in all of her Nintendo plushies:

Oh yea, did I mention that I love Pinball more than any other game ever? Because I totally do.

I also like to doodle when I'm bored, as seen below

I drew that when I was bored.

Sometimes, when I'm not gaming or collecting I'll post blogs, here are a couple recent ones:

ChillyBilly's Hidden Gems - Nano Assault

Tales from the Battlefield - Operation Rolling Hell
