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.

 

Lots of goodies have made their way here in the past 2 weeks,  I have entered the world of Amiibo with the hopes of collecting them all.. unless of course Nintendo tries to milk the 500 or so Pokemon available along the way in which case I will stick with the main franchise characters.

Two packages arrived this week, one from Arcade Block a monthly goods subscription service. The idea is that you select a theme and each month you get random goods related to said theme, the one guarantee every month is a t-shirt.

In addition to this we also received the Crunchy Roll mystery box which contained 30 random Anime DVD’s, what you get is completely random so while there are a couple known (to me anyway) franchises in the mix there are also a bunch of very obscure titles and luckily most items that are part of a larger series started with the first in the run which saves me from needing to hunt those down before they can be viewed.

Marth I had to order from Amazon U.K and Zelda I found yesterday at my local GameStop, they still have not received any other figures from wave 2 as of today.

Most of the rest were also picked up at GameStop with the exceptions being Kirby from Amazon and Samus from Wal-Mart.

Since playing Super Mario 3D World fans have asked Nintendo for the Toad mini games to be expanded on and Nintendo listened!

I decided to pick up Pokemon Alpha Sapphire as my first foray into the series, sadly I found out that you can only have 1 game save at a time after my son started playing the game so I will have to wait for him to finish before I can start.  🙁

Metroid Other M was one on my wanted list and at that price with game and packaging being in great condition I had to pick it up.

As you can see quite the eclectic selection of Anime titles, a few known quantities and plenty of new areas to explore. Any recommendations on where to start would be greatly appreciated!
