August & September! #wow #legion #nes #segagenesis #ps4 #sonicthehedgehog

Long time no post!

Another couple months have past by and I have had quite a few pickups so onto it!

img_2117Uncharted 4 and Tomb Raider! Deep sales at Best Buy + Gamers Club discount got me both of these for $51, not bad considering how new UC4 is.

img_2158I was finally able to pick up the last starter pack at a big discount!


img_2118A few more figures from Tru sales.


img_2119World of Warcraft: Legion Collector’s Edition, a few weeks in and in my opinion this is the best expansion since Wrath of the Lich King so far!


img_2161The Frostwolf Pup plushy for my wife!


img_2160Pepe for me!


img_2156My local Tru only got a few of these in, the 25th anniversary Sonic plush. Sega needs to go back to the original fat Sonic design!


img_2122Newer World of Nintendo figures, all were %50 off at Walgreens.




img_2162From the creators of Retrogamer magazine a thorough guide to Sega hardware and games!


img_217425th anniversary, am I getting that old already?


img_2166Dual system Retrogamer guide, this side SMS.


img_2170And this side NES.


img_2165World of Warcraft: Ultimate Visual Guide. Really nice Blizzard WOW art book.


img_2171World of Warcraft Chronicle Volume 1, fantastic book that covers the pre WOW lore of Warcraft!

Pickups from July.

Another month has gone by with nothing too exciting to report on but I continue to pickup the slow trickle of Amiibo coming out and Disney Infinity as the sales allow.

I am unfortunately seeing an issue with random .mp3 audio files on the stream so I have switched things back to Sega Genesis tracks only which are .flac, not sure what might be causing this issue but I haven’t had a chance to narrow it down.

IMG_2016The recolors for the squid kids and the squid!

IMG_2019Best Buy had a Black Friday in July sale which when combined with the GCU discount brought this game down into the $27 range and an obvious grab!


IMG_2022Starter packs for under $20, why thank you…





IMG_2027Much Infinity!!

IMG_2029I have always loved the Retrogamer magazines and books, this one has some great content.

Pickups from May and June.

I have been horrible about posting the past two months, a new hobby and work around the house has had my attention divided, that said I have the usual pickups to show with more on the way in July.

On the gaming front I have been working on setting up OpenEmu on my Mac and LaunchBox on my gaming PC, while I prefer the real thing there is something to be said for the convenience of save states when you are a busy adult and frankly…. some games simply cost too much in today’s market for any sane person to grab.  🙂


Cool Spot and Mick & Mack for the Genesis, both really good licensed games from what was in my opinion the best era of gaming for these types of titles.


Summer outfit Isabelle amiibo!


The new Kirby series amiibo for the launch of Kirby: Planet Robot.







I was also able to pick up some of the “Skymiibo” for cheap, roughly $13.00 each.



Free for everyone via Gamestop, I posted an extra to Twitter and Instagram for followers to claim.


With Disney Infinity canceled I decided to get some of my favorite characters, I plan to grab most of the other Disney related figures once they go on deep sales.






Chrono Trigger is awesome, and Comics is what happened.

It has been quite on this front as I was pretty sick for almost two weeks, now that I am feeling better I wanted to share some of my latest additions in both the gaming and graphic novel spaces.


Chrono Trigger the JRPG masterpiece from the SNES was remastered and released for the DS, Amazon has new copies on sale for less than $20.00 so I had to grab a copy of one of my favorite games of all time.


I finally picked up Volume 4 of Saga as well as 5 other Volume One releases for various comics that I have been wanting to read such as Low, Descender, East of West, Pretty Deadly and Tokyo Ghost!



Latest amiibo arrivals! #amiibo #nintendo #animalcrossing #supersmashbros #streetfighter #fireemblem

I was able to grab the latest round of amiibo, the Smash lineup is almost done so it will be interesting to see what Nintendo does moving forward. I doubt that we will see many more Animal Crossing figures (where is Cousteau?) but we will likely see a ton of new Zelda figures when Zelda Wii U launches.

IMG_1492Timmy and Tommy from Animal Crossing!


IMG_1493Kapp’n from Animal Crossing!


IMG_1494Rover from Animal Crossing.


IMG_1495Roy from Fire Emblem and part of the Super Smash Bros. lineup.


IMG_1496Famicom R.O.B, also part of the Super Smash Bros. lineup.


IMG_1497And of course Ryu my favorite character from Street Fighter and part of the Super Smash Bros. lineup.

Zelda & Mega Man return! #Zelda #TwiLightPrincess #twilightprincesshd #MegaMan #megamanlegacycollection #amiibo

Several weeks have gone by since my last post and a few new items have arrived, don’t forget to check me out on both Twitter and Instagram as I post there frequently with updates on my Zelda journey!


Twilight Princess HD, many people see this as their favorite game in the series. I can’t wait to progress to this game and give it a go.



The bundled amiibo, it is heavier and feels sturdier than most amiibo and the attention to details is pretty good for the cost.



Mega Man Legacy Collection, a fantastic collection package that contains tons of extras!



The amiibo is using the same mold as the Smash figure unfortunately.


The game and amiibo also come with 6 post cards with really nice Mega Man artwork!


Sad story time.. I cleared Woodfall Temple, rescued all of the faeries and was on my way back to return the Deku Princess when I had to close my 3DS before continuing another day. Unfortunately I forgot to plug in my 3DS when I got home from work as I usually do and this morning found that it had died due to a drained battery. 🙁

Awesome Temple and now that I know all of the mechanics I can rush back through it but would rather have spent that time doing new quests, oh well.



DC Comics sent me these comics to read and review on Goodreads, I will likely get to them over the next two weeks and post my thoughts there.

So much goodness! #ocarinaoftime #oot #zelda #briankVaughan #Pokemon #AnimalCrossing

Hello all, another week has gone by and while work has kept me incredibly busy I still managed to get in some OOT time. I cleared the Water Temple (ugh) and am now about 1/2 way through the Shadow Temple, clearly Halloween inspired.  🙂




Another puzzle down, this looks really nice framed! Now that this is done I may move on the the Mario Kart 8 puzzle that Gamestop carries.



I picked up 4 packs of Animal Crossing Amiibo cards over the past two weekends, here are a few of the non duplicates!



I grabbed this guy for free from GameStop, to celebrate 20 years of Pokemon each month of 2016 you can pick up a free Mythical Pokemon card and claim it in game!



Also as part of the 20th anniversary are new plushes and figures, so far I have been able to pick up these two.





Another Brian K. Vaughan graphic novel, this trade covers the entire series as it was a short run. I am only about a quarter way through but this is already turning out to be a fantastic story.
