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 Strike
. 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
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!
