Stop: Sale Time

Oh, you’re having a 25% off all retro games sale, are you? I’ll gladly take advantage of that and spend around $12 for this lot (also involved were some movies not pictured making the total less precise). Nothing special, but it fills some holes on a variety of platforms.

Blaster for My Master 

 Post-birthday gift card splurge. Total cost? $2.50 after the card. Needed a N64 as mine is suffering from a bad video port and Blaster Master 2 was on the want list for a good while. Nice to cross that one out.

Well Timed

Needed an AC adapter for the SNES find last weekend, which led to this $20 total haul from a local game store. PTO qualifies as a great find for a measly $1 (and it’s complete) while I’ve been hunting for an original box for Arnold Palmer Golf for some time. Weird coincidence/timing I found it the same week he died. 

Also, ESPN Speedworld isn’t worth much but it’s not easy to come by if you’re going for a compete set.

Combative 

$6 at a flea market. Not the best but Ace Combat can be erased from my want list. Been meaning to replay it for a while. 

Also, what’s a key ingredient to a great flea market? Expired beef jerky and sausage shoved into a cabinet with Axe deodorant. Such things can get no better.

Change of Scenery 

Changing up the view a little for this small $11 find at a local game store. The Genesis NBA Live ’98 can be scratched from the wish list, although the SNES version remains.

Flea Infested 

When it’s this hot out, indoor flea markets are the only choice. For $8, this isn’t such a bad deal.

The Day of Birth

Was given (mostly) free reign to mop up in a local game store as a birthday gift, leading to this $75/free game haul. While Strider 2 may be missing the other disc (with an emulated version of the arcade original), it’s been on my most wanted list for a decade now. I’ll take what I can get. Sports fans should note NHL 2002 on GBA, which is an update to the Genesis era NHL titles. Physics are a touch off, but everything from the menus to the sprites are identical to NHL 96/97/98.

(Update: The Strider 2 disc is actually the Strider arcade disc. All copies were misprinted, and the games printed in reverse. I can see why the mistake is easy to make now.)

Checking In

Local game store reopened after being closed for some time. They offered B1G2 free as a thank you, leading to this $20 haul.
