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.


August 17, 2013 Pickup

For starters, I bought a NES Four Score today. First I’ve seen of it and it looks better than the Satellite, mainly because it’s not wireless and doesn’t use four ‘C’ batteries.

Secondly, I got hired for a new job this week, training starts Tuesday, so I bought myself a ‘I got hired’ present. I know that’s a lame excuse, whatever I do what I want. I’m super excited I will be getting paid now, these pickups should start increasing in number of items. Anyways, I grabbed myself a Virtual Boy (with Mario’s Tennis, box as bad as it is, and manuals for both).

And present to myself number two was Tales of Phantasia CIB for the Super Famicom. I plan to get the Retron 5 when it comes out, so Famicom and Super Famicom games will start getting added to my collection as I find them. Basically, I wanted to grab this before someone else decided to (Since I’m a big fan of the series).
