Pickups for the Week of August 3rd 2015

I wasn’t planning on picking anything up this week, but I ended up doing so anyways when the girlfriend wanted to go out and hunt since she doesn’t get to as much. We quit after our first stop which had some great stuff we couldn’t pass up. Here is what I grabbed:

First up are cartridges only, Kirby’s Adventure for Famicom and Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past for Super Famicom. For the virtual boy we have Bomberman: Panic Bomber CIB, although the box is a bit crushed. For the Neo Geo Pocket that is Del Sol 2, a slot machine game, I love my Neo Geo Pocket Color and am always happy to get new games for it. Finally we have a Gamecube Mario Party 4.

I also have a slightly early unexpected ebay mail arrival. A Chrono Trigger Sheet Music Book. I do not play any instruments, but my girlfriend does. So this is slightly for her, but mostly me because I want a Chrono Trigger collection so bad.

Now before you laugh, I did not find anything super cool amazing special this weekend. So instead I picked up what you see in the picture below.

Link’s Crossbow training is pretty much the only Zelda game I can think of that I did not own yet, and to find a complete with crossbow version like this made it a must have, especially when it’s pretty much the same price without the crossbow. F1-Race and F-zero are on my “I used to own these at one time, let’s get them back list”. I also decided to pick up three cheap Snes games. Clue because I love the movie, and it’s a fun board game. Space Ace and Shaq-Fu…..well, I don’t know if I can justify these. Tetris, because Famicom games are awesome to have.

Like I said, nothing special, just a few things I didn’t have yet.

Got a few things this weekend, nothing special, but I haven’t been out in awhile so here goes.

Another batch of Atari manuals. Will be great if I ever get back to my Atari Fridays. Speaking of Which I finally found a Adventure cart, with the manuals I’ve been picking up and the box I’ve had for awhile, that one is CIB. Among the Manuals This week is the Centipede Comic, why wouldn’t I want that.  You will also notice another Famicom Cartridge, this one is called SD Gundam Knight. Apparently as is obvious, it is a game for the SD Gundam series. The one GBA cart is Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team. Finally, yes, that is a Mario Galaxy Soundtrack. With some googling, It was a non-US club Nintendo Gold award. I am thinking Europe from the Spanish and French on it, but I am not 100% sure.
