Rainbow of Games

Over the last three weeks I’ve accumulated the following additions to my collection. The totals are 22 games, 2 movies, and 5 albums.


It’s my first copy of it and it’s my favorite of the early Batman films. It has a bunch of extras including a 50-page book that’s apart of the case and a director commentary track which I usually look for in movies I buy.

Included with the two End Is Nigh games for the PS3.

Ten Pin Alley
I remember it from a demo disc years ago.

Big Bang Mini
It has interested me for awhile.

It was free with the original PlayStation system that Usagi704 got recently and he didn’t want it so he let me have it.


Space Channel 5 Special Edition
For the PS2, which I originally thought was the first game until I found out that it contains Part 2 as well.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Battle Nexus & Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3: Mutant Nightmare
I bought these two games based solely on the inclusion of the two original Konami arcade games as unlockables.

Namco Classic Fighter Collection
I’ve been interested in picking up a copy of Tekken Tag Tournament more recently. This three game collection helped out nicely with that as it had that game along with Tekken 4 and Soul Calibur II.

Wario World
It’s one of the few Gamecube specific games that I’ve yet to get that have interested me.

The King of Fighter XII
To play against others online, but mainly Usagi, of course.


Kid Klown in Crazy Chase
I lead myself to believe that this SNES Kemco game was at least decent for some reason. It’s not.

Deja Vu
Oh here’s why. This NES adventure game, which always had fun box art, was published by Kemco where as the above game was developed by them. Retroware TV episode 12-4 made Deja Vu seem pretty interesting.

I remember liking the arcade version back in the day. This version works, but maybe not as well as one would hope.

Mission: Impossible
This was one of those games that we owned growing up so it was on my wish list because of that alone. Decent music I must say.

An interesting and mildly fun shooter style racer.


This next group of three were bought with the idea that since my original plan to buy less has obviously failed that I’d start looking on eBay for the harder to find games that I want. Just once a month with a few exceptions like the upcoming Modern Warfare 2. Hopefully this will work this time.

This was the game I was going after. It doesn’t have everything, but it does have most of The Ultimate Doom and Doom II games. It’s kind of a compilation of sorts.

Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense & Soul Blade
These two games were simply apart of the three game deal. Neither of which I had and I’ve heard some good things about both.


Finally, I looked up the prices of Michael Jackson album on Amazon.com and other than HIStory costing about $23, the rest were only $7-9. I looked locally for them first and no place had a good selection or price. So I ended up getting all of the albums expect for HIStory (price) and Invincible (already own).

NES Wish List


Yesterday I went through the list of NES games on GameSpot. I found 24 games that I either owned or played years ago that are nowhere in sight today. Below is the 24 games split up into three categories, Owned, Rented/Played, and Never Played.

Owned (9)
Dragon Warrior*
Ikari III: The Rescue
Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out*
Ninja Gaiden*
Shadow of the Ninja*
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game*
Time Lord

Rented/Played (11)
Bad Dudes
Blades of Steel
Bump ‘N Jump
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Gun Smoke*
Mega Man 2*
Road Blasters
Street Fighter 2010

Never Played (4)
Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse
Double Dragon
G.I. Joe
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project

Out of these 24 games, all but eight are available from where I’ve looked online. The games that are marked with an asterisk are ones that I remember playing a lot of and enjoying, as well.

I will be getting most of these games, eventually. A game like Time Lord will more likely be dropped off of the list than be purchased, however.

On an interesting side note, Time Lord, being a pretty crappy game, was developed by none other than Rare. Yes, that’s right. The same company that made great games like Killer Instinct, Goldeneye, and Perfect Dark were also responsible for ass games like A Nightmare on Elm Street (AVGN review) and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (AVGN review).

So there it is. My list of NES games that I’d like to have once again. Expect an SNES list and Game Boy list soon!
