I got this when I went to Bonami again. I played it the next day, and was rather disappointed. This is nothing special, and not at all fun. Some animations are cool, but they also weren't tested well. The mechanics are very tedious and slow, the music and graphics are mediocre at best, and the gameplay is way too easy. There's a 'Challenge' mode, which I played, but it hardly makes the game more difficult, just two-three times as long - and as tedious.
At least the sticker is beautiful on this cartridge, and in top condition. :P

I got Star Ocean The Last Hope for xbox 360. I played it a small bit a few years back, and I remember telling myself I didnt like it. I have no idea why I did, the game is super great. Im way liking it so far.

Ive spent almost all day playing it, haha. Its way fun. It might be a favorite of mine so far. Only thing I dislike so far about it is the camera. When exploring the overworld, youre either right up against the main characters back, and the only thing you can see is the sky, ooor youre so far back that your character is tiny. I hate that. But other than that the game is super fun

Game BOI Advance - Pre-Sale Edition! Game BOI Advance - Pre-Sale Edition!
Recently I got Mario Kart Wii, essentially completing the entire Mario Kart series (I now have all 8 Mario Kart games), The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and best of all: A Japanese copy of Pokémon Platinum, with a near perfect Pokédex with all 493 Pokémon seen, and approx. 416 owned! Unfortunately, it doesn't seem legit, as clearly there was some heavy action replay usage as I have 999 of almost every item... Oh well! I like to cheat too, and I finally got a Japanese Pokémon game!

I found infinite undiscovery for cheap! Im super excited to try it eventually (am still playing star ocean) the game looks amazing. Is by the same team who created star ocean and tales of, so it has that fast paced real time battle system. Am pumped.

I hear its a tough game though, especially when it comes to healing. You can ask your party to heal you, but they wont always do it Ive read. Also, opening your menu does not pause the battle, enemies still cause you damage while you use your menu. So Im expecting a difficult game : p Ive heard its still a very fun jrpg though so Im looking forward to it : p

I spent hours on the original Paper Mario alongside Kirby 64 and Banjo-Tooie! You'll definitely enjoy it, it's what started off the paper mario series although it does have a lot less to offer than TTYD it's still rather enjoyable to this day. 4th chapter in it is probably my fav it's got the best music, also as far as cartridge rattling goes it might be nothing some carts I found in like thrift stores rattle it's probably due to age but in any case enjoy!

I looked up a video on how to tell if a n64 cart is a reproduction or not, and my paper mario is DEFINITELY a reproduction : p The label is all glossy, the back label is a different color than the ones on my other n64 carts, and the little nintendo label indentation on the top of the back of the cart looks sloppy compared to the others.

I did hear that this doesnt mean it will be any different though, that the game might be fine. But I totally bought a fake, which is a bummer. I guess as long as the game works fine that its okay though.....

I got really excited, but then I read this. :(

I sent this to various friends, but I had forgot to post it here!
I went to a video game con/fair last Sunday, and finally got a Nintendo DS!

When I got there, I immediately started scanning all tables for DS Lites, as I wanted to get one. I didn't want a black one, though, and at first I only found blacks. I did then find a white one, but it didn't look great. But then I got to a table with 3 silver ones and some black ones also! I could pick the one which looked the best, and it really does look and feel great. Only €30, too. ^.^ (including charger)
Then I needed some games to play on it, so I started going through everything again, but now at a leisurely pace. I wouldn't have minded games without the box, as I've only got a single Game Boy game complete, in total. But almost all DS games were in the box.
I looked at some games for other systems too, and even though I was planning to not buy any Game Boy games, when I saw "Rayman 2 Forever" for only €2,50 I had to buy it. Rayman 2 is a 3D game, of course, and this game seems to be using assets of the original Rayman, but featuring new level design. It's zoomed out a lot, which makes Rayman appear really small, but it does also make it a lot easier to see where you should be going, which is nice.
I haven't played it a lot yet.
I was hoping to get one of the big Mario titles for the DS, but all of the Mario games were almost as expensive as the console itself was, and I was trying to stay within a budget of €50. (I ended up spending €60 in total.)
I thought I might come back and buy New Super Mario Bros. anyway, but then I found a table with two cheap games I knew I'd like: Pokémon Ranger and 伝説のスタフィー4 (The Legend of Starfy 4). I've seen PkGam's 100% walkthrough of Pokémon Ranger, and it seemed like a really good game. I've also seen PkGam's walkthrough of The Legendary Starfy, which is an English translation of Starfy 5 (I thought Starfy 3, but I was wrong). Starfy 1-4 weren't translated to English. The Legendary Starfy seemed like a really fun game, so I thought I'd enjoy this one as well!
Then lastly I saw Lego Racers for €5. The sticker is damaged, but I don't care. It's Lego Racers, I buy it because it's fun to play, not for collector's value. I played Lego Racers on a friend's pc as a kid (or maybe just watched him play it, I don't recall :P), and I've always heard it mentioned as a fun game!
And it is indeed. :)



Edit: I also updated my collection page, including some fixes (it's not perfect, I guess, but it's mostly meant as a document to myself)

Only about 25$, so it was almost half the price as every other copy. And it does work fine so far, have already rescued two of the stars so far : p

I got Hollow Knight recently and holy crap is it excellent. It's a Metroid-style game, but imo it's way more interesting than Metroid. The setting is completely unique and never once has anything felt cliche or repetitive, despite the backtracking inherent in these kind of games. I'm already like 40 hours in and I'm baffled how a 2D sidescroller has managed to effortlessly keep me hooked this whole time. It constantly throws new things at you that are completely unexpected. Definitely one of my favorite exploration-based games of all time.

Oh, and it's only 15$ bucks, but has as much content as a triple-A game imo.

Almost half? I don't think I've ever seen it for less than €100. :P Although I just checked, and found out that the American version does indeed sell for cheaper. I'd probably get it if it was only $50!
To be frank, though: a bootleg's a bootleg, to me it doesn't matter whether there's a working save battery. Although I can imagine it feeling better to play a bootleg on an actual console than playing a downloaded ROM.

I played finest hour on gamecube back like ten years ago. I always wanted to try big red one but never had the chance.

I just learned about european assault like two days ago though, would like to try it.

Good luck with finest hour btw
