Last Acquisitions For Awhile

Back at ya this blog with my last gaming acquisitions for awhile.  Some good stuff for some good deals have been picked up this time around.

It was good to find You Don't Know Jack for PS1 because playing my plethora of old Windows based YDKJ games hasn't been possible since I have moved to Linux, at least not without screwing around with something like Wine.  This particular version is very good with no noticeable loading and is very comparable to the PC versions.  Found Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII for only $19.99 new, so that was a pleasant surprise, especially since most local used shops sell were still selling for about $26 used.  Picked up Nightshade and Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies used for cheap, $3 and $7 respectively.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters is a pretty good fighting game for the Super Nintendo especially since whenever Konami attempts a fighting game, things usually don't end well.

Tetris DX for Game Boy Color is easily my favorite Tetris ever and Castlevania II: Simon's Quest can be confusing if you don't know what you need to do or where to go, but otherwise is a pretty good game.

The last game I acquired is something I didn't have when I took the picture above.  That game is the excellent Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand for GBA.  This is actually a game produced by
Hideo Kojima and has a few obvious Metal Gear-esque stealth mechanics even though stealth isn't a big part of the game.  Definitely check it out if you can find it!
