I love old strategy guides, especially ones from the 2d era. All those 2d maps and secrets collected together with sprites and promotional art translated well in strategy guides.

My pickups from my business trip to Louisville.  Nothing super crazy, but everything was cheap and I thought the Breeder's Cup World Thoroughbred Championships was really fitting since I was in Louisville.  

These games put me at exactly 1,999 games.  I figure I want to make game 2,000 special so I'm waiting until I find something interesting.

It's pretty fun to look through strategy guides especially from the older games, It's a nice sub genre to collect for.

Few more gatherings:

Shopping around for my new 360, got a bunch of Halo's. Glad to have Left 4 Dead, a great couch co--op game! The Witcher 2 is an interesting game as I have never been able to approach this series but with this, Witcher 1 on PC and then Witcher 3 on PS4 I might finally get around to it. Zelda Breath of the Wild also went on sale lately, considering I sold my Switch lately it seem ideal to get.

This weeks gatherings:

Bully, Gun & Burnout Revenge were titles I had on PS2 & consider this a better version for each title. After beating Sonic Mania I decided to gather some of the other titles I've not had before.

I have to say sony adds were absolutely dominating in these past few weeks not complaining though

Free wii adds all cib

no more heroes
samurai warriors 3

Free sony deals some pretty nice deals those were all cib in very nice shape especially pleased of the usa exclusive don;t come up to often over here.

ps3

majin lost kingom

Ps2

shadow of the collosus english promo version + promo box
xenosaga episode II
front mission 4
monster rancher 3
shining force neo
tales of legendia
grandia extreme

ps1

n20
tank racer
apocalypse
mobile lightforce
monkey hero
shadow of the horned wrath
ghoul panic
saga frontier
sayuki journey
bushido blade 2
torniko quest
r type delta
In the hunt 

Fortunately also got another solid deal aside from playstation

Solid N64 deal for free all cib in very nice shape

bomerman hero
castlevania 64
mystical ninja 1


The most epic deal of the past few weeks was a pretty big one

I scored a spuds adventure for cart only price  

Not my kind of game though so instead I decided to get a game I really wanted as an excuse since I won't be keeping spuds adventure.  I never pay close to market value but If I had to get something close to market value while being expensive it had to be something that I would not find in my country without collectors.

I really like my sega stuff so I decided to get musha in cib excellent shape. It was on low end going rate wich usually include damaged copies and in europe so no import or high shipping costs, the japanese games were all available for way higher than their going rates not to mention the heavy import taxes one would pay upon receiving them.

Always wanted a musha pretty pleased to add this one to the collection would most likely not find it maybe as an ex rental but since an ex rental was in collectors hands it might have been imported. if i would live in the US I would most definitely not choose musha though.

Neat stuffs, I also bought Apocalypse this week but it was scratched to hell... so its going back *sighs*

If you haven't played Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom yet you're in for a treat, I had so much fun with it and would say it's one of my favourite PS3 titles now!

apocalypse seems interesting as a 3d run and gun, it is the kinda game that I would most definitly enjoy. I'm pretty sure you'll find another one It's a pretty common game and pretty cheap like most ps1 games.

As far as majin goes I guess I have some reason to boot up my ps3 console than wich doesn't get to much love at my place

I put some free Amazon gift cards to good use and I found a second NES Classic controller at my local Target. For those of you who haven't tried Superhot, it is amazing. Probably my favorite PS VR game so far. It's a short game, but there is definitely some replay value. Ping Pong VR was pretty disappointing. I'm no ping pong pro, but I'm competent enough to know that this game needs a lot of work and polish to fix it.

Xbox Updates:

Utterly delighted to be able to play Crash Twinsanity again - I'd be daring to say it is my favourite one of all... discounting Crash Team Racing. Osome other interesting PS2 alternatives with Onimusha (Which has extras content) & Medal of honor: Frontline.

Geez Ys... yes I'm jealous again   Paid so much jsut to get the standard Edition of Ys III here  

but I did get some pleasant Dark Horse sources this week  :

The FF Ulimania book is okay, I was hoping for a boko which has indepth lore but it's more of summary book which has character profiles, art and extra tid bits, a nice over view of the games though

The Art of Metal Gear Solid I-V is worth the hype though! 2 Serperate volumes covering the games and some extra Peace Walker Art too! both books have roughkly 400 pages and one book is dedicated to the Sketch work, the other dedicated to the completed and promo art for the games -This release is a triumph especdially as we never got a seperate Artbook for MGS3.

The YS games are pretty pricy indeed especially for psp games, psp deals were pretty crazy these past few weeks pretty pleased with the psp adds.

I'm personally more stoked of completing the legend of heroes set 1 to 3 as far as US exclusives go.

Nice adds on the art books though they seem to look pretty heavy and full of content

Nothing major, finally found FF Theatrhythm Curtain Call for a decent price. The most interesting game is Scrapland for the orgiinal Xbox, not heard of this before but it's from the same creator as Alice Madness so was curious.

Some nice weeks pretty pleased

First some mediocre deals all cib in nice shape

10 euro's loss a piece for the following

DS

etrian odyssey II
megaman zx pretty tricky to find in the pal format withouth ebay since usa versions seem to be like everywhere where the pal version is like never available

N64 

penny racers

Ps1 5 euro loss a piece

eternal eyes
mr driller

sega 15 euro's loss a piece not to bad for nice condition 32 x games not to mention both hang tabs still attached, there are no super cheap 32x games in pal land unlike the US even as lose carts 

Metal head
doom


Master system set a 15 euro loss shipped all cib

vigilante
assault city
operation wolf
doubloe dragon
R-type

Free deals all cib

Sega

lost vikings

Ps1

brahma force
trap runner
guilty gear
parodius managed to snag one down for cheap never found one. Had a spare manual and disc around very pleased to add this one to the collection

Neo geo pocket

neo turf masters they kept some of the animations compared to the original pretty interesting.
Pocket color console anthracite boxed 

n64

bomberman 64

DS

Starfy 4
jump super stars
Ninendo ds console phat mario kart pack

The mario kart pack sure brings back some memories. Still have the very same sleeve of my older pack in lesser shape. Traded my phat in for a ds lite pretty early on back in the day no regrets but It's pretty nice to hold a ds phat once again not to mention to have this nostalgic pack in excellent shape. Mario kart ds has the worst 3d grapics of the mario kart franchise but the gameplay was very solid. Especially the battle mode is unmatched

Those 8 player local co op last man standing balloon battles on especially block fort are unfortunately a thing of the past. Pretty much Everyone had a ds and this game so even with non friends local co op was not a rare thing back in the day. Sure were some intersting times to say the least, with the early days of the 3ds it came somewhat back but It's all mobile phones now unfortunately
