Went to the arcade in Indy, and they had a bin of $1 games that included some imports. Figured why not for a dollar.

-Micro Machines 64 (N64)
-Japanese version of Winback, complete in the box (N64)
-Japanese version of Space Invaders, complete in box (SNES)

Also bought the Japanese Mario Kart 64 for $15.

I’m still keeping up with trends. I got an Xbox One X.
Helped a friend out, and now I don’t have to keep moving my one S from room to room.
Now I just have the problem of which room gets the shitty S and which gets the x

The better TV is in the lounge, and the black will match the setup... but my bedroom TV isn’t bad and I do use it more.
(55” 2017 4K in lounge vs 43” 2019 4K in room)

Now all I need is to get Horizon 4 with the money I spent on the Xbox... oh :(

Had a JB gift card for switching my mobile to Telstra:
Nintendo Switch (Neon) with a screen protector and Pro controller.
Burnout Paradise Remastered on xbox one $10
and Shenmue 3 'fuck you, kickstarter backer edition' AKA Day one edition on PS4 $5

The switch is now like the PSP... I get one and love it, play it to death and get sick of it and then sell it when I'm not using it anymore. Only for me to buy another one when I miss it. I ended up owning 4 PSP's in the end, and this is my 3rd Switch.

I wanted Forza Horzion 4, but I can't find just an Xbox one copy of the game for less than $50 used and it's not worth that, MAYBE $30 NEW and I'd begrudgingly pick it up
but $10 for my 4th time buying PARADISE was worth it. (now have it on 360, PC via origin and steam, and now xbox one x)

I only got Shenmue 3 ($5 brand new) because it has a code for shit that I should have been given when I helped fund the fucking game to be made.
I now have 3 copies of Shenmue 3... The fuck you kickstarter backer! edition, the normal edition, and the Kickstarter backer edition, which is just the normal edition with a crappy cardboard sleeve that arrived bent and doesn't even have the games name printed on the spine, so you can't see what it is on a shelf.
If I find a steelbook for $5 or less, I'd probably get that too, because it will look good on my shelf, but I still have no intention of playing it anytime soon despite my 3 copies.

While paradise Updates, I will probably play through breath of the wild again, because it's amazing. But I hear good things about octopath traveler, so I might give that a go on this switch.

saw one going nice & cheap with no pad, fortunatly I picked a pad up a while back from my work in the charity shop that had no battery compartment so it was free to me, added to the Xbone & voila full sytem, amusingly if I'd purchased a pad at the same place as the system it still would have been cheaper than buying one with a pad included
Xbox One S 1TB (at £120 hard to not as I dont feel like splurging on a series X just yet)
Dead Rising 3 (nice bonus it has 2 3 day live trials in, only tried 1 so far but it still worked so grabbing the current gold freebies, seems a good way to make sure it workd for downloads)

Picked up another switch with a pro controller and animal crossing cheap.
Basically what a pro controller and animal crossing would cost new with a free switch. :olol:

Animal crossing is a very mixed bag of a game.
I have immense fun for 12 hours. then I get bored to tears waiting for shit to happen and unlock for the next 12 hours, then I have immense fun again.

I should sell the switch and just keep the control and game but since I'm a hoarder, I will hoard this second switch so I can have one docked and one next to bed.

Now I have 4 joycons though, it might be time to get Bomberman!

I've got a bunch of stuff since my last post (Super Mario 2 NES boxed, Donkey Kong Land 2 GB, Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch), Need For Speed Hot Pursuit (Switch), preordered those Pokemon remasters and plus lots of other things) but the biggest item I got was a freebie: a Nintendo 64 with NTSC versions of Diddy Kong Racing & Star Wars Pod Racer.

Some one at my brother's work gave it to him and he gave it to me. I haven't tested it yet but it's a PAL system so I don't know if it's been modded or if the person bought the wrong games. Hopefully it's modded.

Bought the Walmart special edition of Skyward Sword (comes with socks and a keychain), the Skyward Sword Joycons and the Loftwing Amiibo.

All three of those have been sold out for months, but I lucked out on all of them by being online at the right time. I guess fate knew how much I love Skyward Sword.

:rofl: I wish that was an option, but the melee option is a kick that takes up a painfully small bit of the screen. But if you land it, the enemy goes flying across the screen. I had to buy it solely on principle that it's a messed up game, but I haven't been having much fun playing it.
