My month in games: April

This month has been awesome for games. For only being halfway over, I've gotten a bunch of new games.
Well.. New isn't exactly the right word.
 
So, what did I get? Let's start with something from my last blog.

 Mine? My own nes? O,o
For free (!!) at work:
  • Perfectly working (I mean perfectly) NES, with all wires + 2 controllers
  • The old-school Zapper before they made it signal orange
  • Ice climber (CIB)
  • Gumshoe (CIB)
  • Zelda II: The adventure of Link (CIB) Crappy looking box and manual though
  • Gremlins 2 (CIB)
  • Solstice (CIB)
  • Super Mario 2 (CIB)
 
Now that's awesome for being free. heck, it's awesome for money too. I had actually just ordered my first NES when I got this :P so I went from 0 to 2 NES :D Still haven't gotten the other one yet.
 
 Too much money spent :|
  • Secret Service (X360) Haha. It was damn cheap but damn crappy.
  • Dead Space (X360) All ready had it for pc but I wanted to play it on my xbox. still haven't gotten through it.
  • Silent Hill: homecoming (X360) me and a friend is going through it. Not as scary as the first one ;)
  • Warriors Orochi 2 (X360) Interesting. I like to relax with these kinds of games from time to time.
  • Advent Rising (XB) Still sealed. Don't really plan to play it either. Also very cheap.
  • Metal Gear Solid 3 (PS2) about time I got this one.
  • Persona 3 FES (PS2) I wanted to try it and randomly found a Norwegian store that sold it and then I saw:
  • Persona 4 (PS2) Damn you endurance run for getting me to using my money :S
  • Samurai Shodown (SNES) I wish I had a neo-geo :|
  • Super R-Type (SNES) Oh yeah :D
  • Battletoads (SNES) Wasn't that great to be honest.
 
There you go. And that's just half of april :D If I keep this up I will crush a hundred 360 titles in a couple of months. that's a lot of games :O
 
Edit: Now that april is basically over, here's the rest of the list I got this month.
 
  • Buzz Quiz World (PS3)
  • Yakuza 3 (PS3)
  • Virtua Fighter 2 (Saturn)
  • Sega Rally (Saturn)
Just arrived today: Sega saturn :D Awesome-pie. I now own all the sega consoles.

Yup. Secret Service was probably a mistake.

Well. it was really, really cheap. Cost about as much as a pack of gum. 
Actually it wasn't worth it at all :|

Well.. let me know how it is whenever you get to it :P 
I've read all I can find about it but still can't make up my mind if I want it or not.

@destruktive: Rhythm Heaven is really awesome. It's one of the FEW ds games I can say I actually liked.

Got another pack :D
One more NES, 2 controllers and all hookups. apparently the ac adapter was from a SNES but I don't mind.
 
but more importantly, these came too. Random fact, Chrono trigger is only my 2nd american DS game :P I only got two with black boxes.

@destruktive: Cool blog dude. Always nice to see what other people are playing, it always shocked me that we could all be so similar in many ways, but when it comes to games our tastes are practically as individual as fingerprints. Keep it up.

Thanks man. 
Since I don't really have anything else cool to talk about in my blog I though I'd just start to post about my game pickups :P 
I use waay too much money on my games :D

Tell me about it. I just built myself a beast of a gaming PC thanks in large part to help from Geno and some mods & staff. The last time I had a PC capable of playing modern games was a good 8 or 9 years ago, and Steam is making it all to easy to drop 10 bucks here, 40 there...you get the picture.

@MB:  That's why I never look into the steam store :D I only look if I have too much money on my hands (which is never).
 
I started using too much money when I noticed how easy it was to find retro games on ebay :D So that's where most of my money goes. Of course, I'm almost up in 90 xbox 360 games so there's that too

All righty. I remember I promised myself not to spend more money when I went to work this morning.
 
That didn't work:

It's the last one for the month. I swear! also, bought Megaman 10 O,o
