Re: Games Acquired 2020

A trip across town and the arrival of two packages from Japan resulted in A LOT of games coming into the prfsnl_gmr household today:

Assassin’s Creed II Discovery (DS)
Prey the Stars (DS)
Bio Senshi Dan (Famicom)
Booby Kids (Famicom)
Esper Boukentai (Famicom)
Gyrodine (Famicom)
Karateka (Famicom)
Lost Word of Jenny (Famicom)
Super Arabian (Famicom)
Wing of Madoola (Famicom)
Youkai Club (Famicom)
Serpent (GB)
The Legndary Stafy 3 (GBA)
Nectaris (GBC)
Qix Adventure (GB)
Pool Paradise (GC)
Bomberman 64 (N64)
Turnabout (PS1)
Wizardry Llylgamym Saga (PS1)
Gadget Racers (PS2)
Grandia III (PS2)

Pool Paradise (GC) is a weird one. The case art says its a GC exclusive, even though it was also released on the PS2. More importantly for my purposes, however, it contains a port of Dropzone (Atari 8-bit), which was also programmed by the game’s creator Archer Maclean. (He’s one of those gaming auteurs who didn’t make a lot of games, but put his name on everything he touched. Dropzone was his first game.). I’m a sucker for games with other, older games as hidden features; so, I guess I’ll have to pick up the PS2 version sometime too... :D

lol as I've said before, you and I are working on identical but parallel Famicom collections.

I own Bio Senshi Dan, Esper Boukentai, Gyrodine, Super Arabian, Wing of Madoola, and Youkai Club, while the others are on my Want List. Some interesting stuff in that mix!

I’m sad to hear that. My Famicom collection is a beautiful and unique butterfly!!! Just to spite you, I’m going to add a bunch of baseball, horse racing, and mahjong games to my want list.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

E.V.O. Search for Eden

After months of watching Amazon Warehouse for a deal on anything that wasn't 'modern', I finally stumbled on a decent deal for EVO. As far as I can tell, it looks like a legit cart. It's clean as can be (though the back cover looks like it's 'tanning' a bit), the label has some wear, but is in great shape, and it even came with a Super Nintendo themed dustcover, which I was not expecting. I am quite pleased.

Breakdown:
Thrift: 0
Game Store: 5
New: 17
Online: 1

Year Total:
Switch - 10

I've bought wayyyyy too many games this month, I actually haven't collected retro games in a long time but I got a strong urge to get into gen 7 and have been collecting rampantly for wii, xbox 360, and now PS3, Gamestop has some ridiculously low prices on this gen and I have been having a lot of fun stopping at every gamestop I can and buying 8 games at a time for an average of 30 bucks per visit. I want to compile all my purchases for the month into one post at some point so I can see for myself how overboard I went and reel it in a little bit.

I think my hook here is that I loved gen 7, IMO one of the best gens by a considerable margin, but when it was current I was very broke and just gamefly'd everything. Now that I have money I just feel the need to collect all the games I rented and all the games I missed out on at the time.

Thanks!

It was a hell of a deal, so I was super surprised when I got it and it wasn't the SFC version or a repo cart :lol:
