Random gathering of things and stuff.

Random stuff was purchased this month, mostly due to sales and the opening of a new (and the only) retro game shop in my town.

The classic, purchased at my local shop for cheap and the disk and case are in near mint condition!

Somehow this one has eluded me so I decided to pick up a copy, not the greatest game but Sonic…

A homebrew of the arcade game released for Wreck it Ralph, lot’s of fun!

A bit redundant as I own the Wii U version but they added a ton of little things that make this version of the game unique, the Amiibo is perfect and Poochy is my favorite new Nintendo character in a long time.

This was on sale at GameStop for cheap, I have not played a SF game in awhile so I am hoping that this sequel lives up to past games.

Retro Gamer Annual, why not..

I decided to start picking up Blu-ray copies of my favorite Anime, Amazon had this on sale for $6.99 so it was the perfect time to start the collection.

My focus will be on Ghibli classics, but this was too good of a deal to pass up.

Barnes & Noble had an Image Comics sale running, buy two Image comics and get the third for free. I have read great things about this series so I picked this up along with Saga Volumes 5 & 6, I am still on Volume 4 but being one of my favorite series I will definitely get back on track and caught up.

 

Since the last time… #Amiibo #Sega #Xbox #SonicTheHedgehog #Nintendo #Zelda

Another round of goodies… this time it sees me getting back into the Xbox club, some Sonic goodness and the next round of Amiibo!

Black Friday sales lured me in, this is the dark blue Gamestop exclusive Xbox One S bundle with a physical Gears of War 4 and all of the Xbox 360 Gears games digitally. The controller was originally $74.99 but on sale for $35.00.

The next batch of Amiibo, this time we get an 8-bit Link, Ocarina of Time Link and Wind Waker Link & Zelda. A really great batch!

The limited run of Sonic\Tails from Build a Bear, my lovely wife saw these and knew I would want them.  ^_^

She also got the Sonic shirt and Sonic 3 music added to Sonic!

Sanic!

The Tails design is awesome, really well done!

November post part deux!

Another batch of items, this has been a busy month of releases with Christmas right around the corner.

The latest Pokemon game, I will be playing Moon while my son plans on playing Sun.

With the jokingly short controller cables on the NES Classic Edition I picked up two extensions from BestBuy, these have been re-branded from the Wii era so you will need to remove two screws to take off the clear plastic clip and then screw the housing back together before use.

img_2426

The great hunt comes to an end, I have waited for over a year to find the World of Nintendo 6 inch Metroid figure, today my local Toys R Us had two in stock. ^_^

img_2427

img_2428The latest batch of Amiibo came out a few weeks back, I finally got another Ikea Detolf shelf since my first is packed full of Amiibo already… and decided to unbox these for photos before putting them in the case.

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_2021

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.

IMG_1854

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

IMG_1855

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.

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!

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.
