Putting the You in Force

In 20 years of collecting, I’ve never so much as seen a U-Force, let alone a boxed one. So sure I bought this one when I saw it. What I’m going to do with it… well, it’s a really nice box. $40 for the entire haul at a local game store, and for Evolution, I just needed the case. Selling my current copy will bring down the cost.

NBA King

Inadvertently an NBA-focused collecting day from an out-of-town game store. NBA Give ‘n Go is a personal favorite, so finding the box brought out a smile. And hey, a TurboGrafx find too! $60 for everything here.

The Final Countdown

Finally losing patience and nearing the 20th anniversaryol of the Dreamcast launch, I did what I generally don’t do: headed to eBay. With these six in hand though, there remains only one outstanding game for me to complete a full US Dreamcast set – Urban Chaos.

Soon…

The Sailor Man

Birthday shopping day. A small haul, significant for Popeye 2, a routine but uncommon platformer that I’ve never come across before.

In related news, my Jaguar and Jaguar CD are both fixed now, years after I popped their voltage regulators with the wrong AC adapters by mistake. Include that in the same birthday haul I ‘spose.

Something You Don’t See Everyday

Literally. Even if you own one, it’s buried inside your CD-I’s guts, so you really don’t see these much.

After buying the wrong adapter twice (there are two kinds; I managed to buy the smaller one twice), I finally have video capabilities for my CD-I. A $50 score from a former game store owner – and worth every cent.*

*not really, because it’s the CD-I

Sun Faded Score

Local video store had a B2G1 free sale on 360 games and DS games were $2 each, so despite some awful sun fading on the cases, picking up some favorites was worth it for $14 total.

Escaping Winter

Winter is finally letting go, so let the game hunting begin anew with… one DS game. But hey, it’s something, and for $2 at a lower Michigan flea market, so be it.

Rockin New Years

Who’s excited to bring in the new year with me by playing Sargon Chess and Laser Lords on CD-i? Hello? Anyone? Why did you all leave? This was a great $40 find, and none of you appreciate the awesome evident here.

Christmas Magic

The big three are down. With these monsters out of the way, I’m just seven games away from a complete US Dreamcast set.

King Pond

Small out of town game store find for $20. Finally completed the Mega Man Battle Network series collection. At some point, I should actually try playing them.
