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.

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.

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!

IMG_1445

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.

IMG_1451

IMG_1453

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

IMG_1454

IMG_1442

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

IMG_1447

IMG_1448

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

IMG_1446

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

IMG_1438

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.

IMG_1245

 

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

IMG_1248

 

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!

IMG_1286

 

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

IMG_1283

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.

What was I up to this week? #Zelda #Ocarinaoftime #Sagacomic @TokyoGhoul

I am currently playing through Ocarina of Time on the 3DS, I just cleared the Fire Temple and am about to enter the Ice Cavern. I can totally see why everyone loves this game, it really changed the game (no pun intended) for open world adventure games and I have found myself spending more time exploring and collecting items such as Gold Skulltula’s than I originally thought I would.

That said I need to focus and make my way through the game at a quicker pace if I ever plan on proceeding with Majora’s Mask, Wind Waker etc..

IMG_1176

IMG_1177

Right after getting Epona, thank goodness for the extra speed!

IMG_1202

A little Fire Temple action, notice the Biggoron sword?

IMG_1220

We finally sat down and put together the Majora’s Mask puzzle that I got from Club Nintendo awhile back, I am waiting on the puzzle glue to arrive but it is framed for the time being to keep it together and out of the way.

IMG_1216

We enjoyed putting together the Majora’s Mask puzzle so much that we grabbed this Wind Waker puzzle from GameStop, I would like to grab the rest of them overtime and get them framed.

IMG_1217

Saga volume three arrived damaged so I had to wait for another shipment, now that I have one in good shape I can continue on with the series.

IMG_1218

After finishing Preacher volume 1 I started reading Tokyo Ghoul to fill the void while waiting on Saga as mentioned above, I have some complaints about the first volume such as the slow pace and the over reliance on “over acting” that is commonly found in most Anime but perhaps that is the norm for Manga.

Not all is bad though as I found myself getting interested in the story towards the end of the first volume and will start reading volume 2 this week.
