Watch out! Here comes a massive collection update. Behold 19 game additions and one system.
Last Thursday I went out to local store #1, It’s About Games. I did so for the GBA SP system. I was going to try and find the Pearl Blue system with the brighter screen, but that was proving to be extremely difficult to find. At least now I’ll have a color that will match the God of War edition PSP this June. I also added a single NES game to the order.
Game Boy Advance SP (red) – system & AC adapter (complete); excellent
Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones (NES) – game only; great
The next day I stopped by Gamestop after a haircut. I wasn’t planning to get Spy Hunter, but at $2.99 I couldn’t pass that up. I made sure that I was really at Gamestop when I saw that price on a decently reviewed game. :D
Spy Hunter (PS2) – complete; fair
After that I decided to make the trip to Shelby to see what Stickman’s had in stock. As usual they didn’t disappoint, especially with the selection of Super NES games. I bought nine SNES games along with the original Twisted Metal game in the early PlayStation longbox.
Ranma 1/2: Hard Battle (SNES) – game only; great
Fighter’s History (SNES) – game only; fair
NBA Jam (SNES) – game only; excellent
Fatal Fury 2 (SNES) – game only; fair
The Lion King (SNES) – game only; great
Robocop Versus The Terminator (SNES) – game only; great
WWF Raw (SNES) – game only; excellent
Aero Fighters (SNES) – game only; good
Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse (SNES) – game only; great
Twisted Metal (PS) – complete; good
Those two days were great and then I received my eStarland.com order on Saturday. I ordered all of the Twisted Metal games that they had. The reason I got TMIII and TM4 is because I wanted to see first hand what’s wrong with them. I also had my eye on Mercs for the Genesis for some time once I found out that it had been released on a home console. I always liked that game in the arcade and since I didn’t have a Genesis during that time, I was totally unaware that it was ever on that system. It was a nice surprise when I read that on Wikipedia.
Destruction Derby (PS) – complete; good
Twisted Metal: Small Brawl (PS) – new
Twisted Metal III (PS) – complete; excellent
Twisted Metal 4 (PS) – complete; great
Mercs (GEN) – complete; excellent
Max Payne (PS2) – complete; good
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne (PS2) – complete; excellent
