Nintendo 3DS with Super Mario 3D Land & Angry Birds Star Wars: I've been wanting to get a 3DS for a while so I'm super excited about finally owning the system. All I can say is that I'm very impressed so far and Super Mario 3D Land is the best platformer I've played since... Super Mario 3D World. Not really all that interested in the Angry Birds game so I'm prolly not even gonna open it. I'm glad I bought the regular version instead of the XL version because I love the 3D effect. I can't even imagine playing SM3DL without 3D. Anyways I guess I'm lucky that the effect doesn't make me feel dizzy an' shit.

GTA Vice City (PC): Vice City might be my favorite GTA game and since I have never actually owned the game I just had to pick it up when I saw it on sale for 2€. I don't know if I'm ever gonna play it again but at least the packaging looks super cool.

EA Sports UFC: I kinda regret buying the game because the reception has been really lukewarm and many fans are disappointed. As you may know, I'm a huge MMA fan and when EA announced their deal with the UFC I was super stoked. I've been playing EA's sports games since 1994 and I thought EA MMA was a very solid game. But as they revealed more and more information regarding the game, my excitement started dying down. Fortunately I don't own a PS4 yet so I might sell the game and buy it again in a few months when I can get it for like half the price. I'm keeping the Bruce Lee DLC code tho :P

New Super Mario Bros Wii: The very first New SMB game is one of my favorite games of all time but to be honest the sequels have been kinda mediocre. Don't get me wrong, they are excellent platformers but games like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D Land/World are far superior. I still play SM3DW but my copy of New SMB U has been collecting dust on a shelf for a few months. I played New SMB Wii a little bit and it's definitely a fun game but... I already know I'm gonna end up playing Super Mario 3D Land way more. So why did I buy New SMB Wii when I already own New SMB U? Simply because I'm trying to collect all Super Mario platformers. A few months ago I noticed that I already own most Super Mario games so I thought it would be fun to collect 'em all especially since Mario platformers are affordable and easy to find. I'm still missing around 10 games but fortunately most of them are common titles.

Super Mario Bros. (GBA): Another Mario game off the list, 'nuff said.

SNES controllers: I bought a couple of cheap ass repro controllers cuz my original SNES controller has a busted d-pad. I got mixed feelings about the controller because while the buttons are responsive, the cable is short as fuck :doh:

Before anyone asks me, yes I do own both Super Mario All-Stars and Super Mario World. So why did I buy the All-Stars+World version? Because.... Luigi! I always hated how in SMW Luigi was basically a recolored Mario sprite instead of a unique character. Many people don't know this but the All-Stars+World version of SMW actually has a different Luigi sprite set:




The year of Luigi might be over but Mario's bro still deserves some love :yep:





I fucking love Contra and the original game for NES is one of those games I will never get tired of playing. Contra is seriously a perfect video game. It's challenging yet fun and addictive. The soundtrack is full of catchy tracks that get your blood bumping while you swim in the ocean of bullets. It's one of the most gorgeous 8bit games ever and especially the large bosses still look amazing. And last but not least, it's got the most awesome video game weapon ever... The Spread Gun.

I never owned Operation C as a kid but once I saw some footage of the game I just knew I had to have it. I was able to pick it up for under 10€ and I'm very happy with my purchase because this game fucking rocks. Operation C might not be as intense as Contra or Super C due to hardware limitations but it does have a few improvements over the NES games. The machine gun is gone because the game features auto-fire and they also removed everybody's least favorite gun, the Laser. The most awesome thing is that you can actually upgrade your Spread Gun. The Spread with homing bullets is my wet dream come true :drool:

If you like the NES Contra games then Operation C is a must buy. It's cheap, easy to find and more importantly it has a SPREAD GUN WITH HOMING BULLETS.

Still not convinced? Watch this awesome review:

I go to swap meets a couple of times a month and while I often find games, I rarely come across consoles. As a matter of fact I've only seen one (broken) Xbox and two PS1s during these past two years. So needless to say that I was happy as fuck when I found a boxed platinum GameCube for 18€ today:



While the console didn't come with a controller, I'm still quite satisfied cuz it's in a great shape especially compated to my old black Cube:

This is my most recent delivery, although more is coming  :cow:



And this actually completes my Capcom Dreamcast collection, I now own all of the games with this El Dorado Gate set I managed to pick up, since there was some damage to it.



Lucky for me I already had 1 2 & 3 (gathering the rest has been hard) so I could substitute them in. There is a green slipcase that you could send away for by getting all 7 games in Japan, and I have seen this online before for like $300+ dollars, but this set had the 2001 calender with it so I got it for a loooot less than that, with it being damaged and all.
This Dreamcast collection is actually my main one, Sega Saturn games too to a slightly lesser extent, but I'm happy to finally have finished it after what, 17 years? XD I probably could have finished it sooner but I've been doing nonsense like buying Capcom games for PS1 and PS2, which have over 100 each due to their popularity... ugh, I don't know if I'll ever finish that.


This also makes my Yakuza/RyuuGaGotaku collection a bit bigger!

Technically these aren't pickups, as I found them while tidying up, but I was wondering where these had gotten to!
I love Japanese Gamecube and GBA boxes, they're so small and cute!

edit:
I have the third Naruto game as well, I just found XD

What the fuck? I actually managed to find another console and it's the one I've been looking for?! :shocked:

My most epic flea market pick-up ever:


Got the whole set for 40€ so it was definitely a great deal especially since I actually got a bunch of really good games too. Games like FFX or Wild Arms 3 might not be rare or valuable but I almost never see games like that out in the wild. The place actually had a bunch of PS2 games but like usually, it was nothing but karaoke, sports and children's games.

I'm a Nintendo fanboy but if there's one thing I really love about PS2 is that even quality titles are dirt cheap. I have spent around 60-65€ on PS2 stuff and I have gotten the console, two controllers, two memory cards and 13 great games. You can't even get an NES/SNES for 60€ here :thumbdown:

This is my most recent delivery, although more is coming  :cow:
Dude, you should post more collection pix. I wanna see your collection, yo!

Copped Mario Party 10 last Friday:


I played the game with a bunch of friends and we definitely had a lot of fun. Mario Party 10 is actually my first Mario Party game since the original on N64 so I'm not super familiar with the series. There's a bunch of annoying mini games but overall the game is quite enjoyable and I like it how it's more about luck than skill. I wouldn't play Mario Party 10 alone but it's definitely my favorite party game on Wii U.

This just arrived today:


Mother 3 reproduction cartridge. I haven't really gotten into repros yet cuz they are often quite expensive and hard to find. But I just couldn't resist buying Mother 3 when I saw it on eBay for a reasonable price. I love EarthBound so I'm quite excited to get my hands on Mother 3 :)

You know what's awesome? All games for 10€ sale! :w00t:


The store had tons of Xbox and PS games (like hundreds of copies of Destiny lol) but unfortunately their Nintendo selection wasn't all that good. The sale started yesterday so of course all the best games were already gone. I still managed to find a few interesting games. I'm super happy about getting Luigi's Mansion and South Park since those two games have been on my want list for quite some time. I'm not sure if the Wii U games I picked up are that great but I'm definitely looking forward to playing Darksiders II.

Colin McCrae Rally 3 takes me back. Love those point to point races. Proper ones too that lasts for more than 5 minutes and no rewind feature either so you had to be good. SSX Tricky is also good fun, but I preferred SSX 3.
