Stuff from the end of last year, in the new year…

It was a very busy end of the year last year and January started off much the same, luckily I was able to acquire some awesome stuff at great prices thanks to the Christmas/Black Friday sales!

Pikachu Luigi! I have a friend that went to Japan and stopped at a Pokemon Center for the set, they were sold out of Pikachu Mario but still had this available in the back!

I am a big fan of both A Nightmare Before Christmas and classic Disney character designs, Dorbz covered both series well.

The wife thought these would go well in the game room on end tables.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

Deep game, lots of nuance so I thought this might come in handy.

Final Fantasy XV was part of a buy 2 get 1 free Black Friday deal, Sunset Overdrive was $4.99 and is awesome.. FFXV was worth the wait so far, first FF game I have played and really enjoyed in a very long time!

Also part of the buy 2 get one free deal, I am now two games behind in the Tomb Raider franchise reboot.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

The Last Guardian is a game I have been waiting with much anticipation for.. for what seems like ages (literally), I will start this once I wrap with FFXV.

One of my favorite games of all time remastered, my son has started his first play through.

Utilized a coupon to pick this one up cheap, I hope it is as good as people say.

Not my usual pick, but at $4 something on sale I grabbed it for my son.

October & November pickups!

As usual I have had a busy past couple of months, some recent pickups outlined here with another post most likely next weekend!

My lovely wife always thinks of me when she is out, she saw these and knew I did not have them so picked them up.

25th anniversary Sonic pack, I love the fat Sonic items released in celebration of the franchise!

I was one of the lucky few to have picked up a NES Classic Edition, luck really. I woke up the morning of release really early and checked all of the local retailers websites to see if any online orders were available and surprisingly was able to purchase with in-store pickup at my local Toys R Us. Somehow my purchase was still available at 6:00 PM that night, amazing.

The latest set of Nintendo Hotwheels, this set was much easier to find than previous releases.

This was on sale for less than $12.00 so why not, even given the latest New Leaf update this was worth it for the price.

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.

The NYC trip and the Nintendo World Store!

We spent this past week in NYC on vacation and while there we attended the Macy’s Day Parade as it was the main reason for the trip (my daughter participated). While there we managed to make several trips (more like 5) to the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Center, over the course of the visits we picked up numerous items especially on Black Friday when the store was having a blow out on third party WiiU games with many games being $5 to $10 dollars each.

Sadly there wasn’t much in the way of game related balloons in this years parade, for example Sonic the Hedgehog made an appearance last year but not this year for some reason.. we got Pikachu which seems to be the case every year in recent memory as well as Eruptor from Skylanders.

I love Yoshi, so this goes to me.

 

IMG_1426

My son gets the Tanooki suit Mario, my wife loves Koopa Troopas so that is hers, and I get the others. I wish they had a blue Yoshi but sadly the only color variation in stock was yellow Yoshi so I defaulted to that.

And of course the bags, what can I say… just look at that artwork. ย ๐Ÿ™‚

 

And on to the games themselves!

IMG_1432

ZombieU was only $10.00 and the Prima guide came with it free, what an unbeatable price! Assassins Creed III was also $10.00.

 

IMG_1429

Tekken Tag Tournament $5.00,ย Just Dance 4 $10.00, Epic Mickey 2 $5.00!

 

And of course some pictures of the Nintendo World Store, my apologies for the quality, the place was pretty much packed the entire week so it was hard to get a good picture between people browsing and taking pictures of their own.
