Random gathering of things and stuff.

Amiibo, Anime, Classic Gaming, Collecting, Comics, Nintendo, Sega

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.

 

Chrono Trigger is awesome, and Comics is what happened.

Collecting, Comics

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!

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

Comics, Nintendo, Pokemon

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.
