Who would have thought I'd go from zero next gen consoles to owning all three within the span of around four months? Craziness, I tell you! Finally found a Jasper system - opted for the Arcade over the Pro since I was having a hell of a time finding a Pro, and during that hunt, I decided that backwards compatibility really wasn't worth the extra $100 (I have a VERY generous friend who's taking care of the no hard drive situation - thanks buddy!!!!). No online yet (I reserved my online tag, Andaley, a long time ago however, so feel free to add me and I'll get to you when I can), as I didn't buy the adapter - have the funds for it in Gamestop credit (which is how I bought the console in the first place), but I am hoping to perhaps find a better deal somewhere else. Damn expensive little booger.
It's a clusterfuck of wires right now - that's NOT how everything is going to look in the end (ie: the 360's not staying on the floor...at least, not if I can help it - and why there's a random pile of PS1 titles sitting there is beyond me), but I wanted to give you an idea of the mayhem I'm dealing with. But really, this only covers the current gen situation - you should see where the NES, SNES, Dreamcast, etc. are... But that's for another time.
Even though I'm SUPER stoked about finally getting a 360, when thinking about it further, this probably wasn't the best time. Not in terms of money, but in terms of my already massive backlog of review games. I've received... I'd say around ten games in the past week, so adding in my collection of 360 games (that I had purchased on clearance, etc. knowing one day I'd own a system) only makes things worse. At least those don't have to be reviewed... Gotta see the silver lining.
Speaking of reviews, here's my latest batch:
- Blue Dragon Plus
- Help Wanted Preview
- House of the Dead: Overkill
- Killzone 2
- Marble Saga: Kororinpa
- Retro Game Challenge
- The Race for a New Game Machine (book)
Thanks for reading - until next time all!
