A Quest for NES

Jul 21 '14

Mail and pickups from today… Oddly enough, the day I returned home with a Tengen Tetris box, a local game store gets one in stock for a great price. Also finally got a box for Link’s Awakening and it’s the nicest condition gameboy box I have ever seen. There is not a flaw on it at all and I couldn’t be happier, especially at the price I got it for :D

Got one more big mail incoming then expect this page to slow down a bit… Just found out we are having a baby, so priorities will be shifting soon. I still plan to pick up games, just not at the frequency I have been lately.

Just returned home from the annual (or possible biannual now) NintendoAge meetup in Tennessee. Got to see a lot of friends again and make some great trades and purchases for hella good prices. This is everything I picked up this weekend, and now I have to catalog it all…. See you in 3 hours.

More NES Boxes and a few manuals that I needed for my set. Some are kinda rough, but were also insanely cheap, so I’ll likely upgrade one day.

After years of looking for a good deal on one, I finally snagged myself a Famicom edition Gameboy Micro in absolutely flawless condition. I also picked up a couple cheap games for GameCube and DS and today while I was at the store I noticed they had a used copy of Cave Story 3D. I already own the game, but mine doesn’t have the slip cover so I asked if they would sell it to me separately for a couple bucks and they just let me have it. Woot!

Picked up all of this stuff at my local game store, except the Little Nemo box.. That was from eBay. Got the Kirby’s Dreamland 3 for $35 bucks… Hell of a deal for that one.

2 more boxes to complete games in my NES set. Not in the greatest shape, but they were super cheap, so I’m fine with it for now, though I may upgrade em down the road.

Picked these up from my local game store earlier today. Got a bundle deal for $22 bucks… Pretty happy with that.
