I haven’t amassed this many games into my collection at one time since the beginning of last August. I guess the good that comes from that shows that I’ve been successful in bringing down the amount of games I get at one time. Let’s get to the eight games listed before you.
DEAD TO RIGHTS
First up is Dead to Rights for the GBA. It’s a terribly rated game and rightfully so. However, I couldn’t pass it up when I saw it recently at the local Toys-R-Us. No they don’t sell used games. This is, in fact, a new copy. The damage to the box likely comes from being thrown around in bargain bins since probably the game’s release back in 2001. It was worth it, though, at only $3.
STAR WARS EPISODE III: REVENGE OF THE SITH
I’m in no way a fan of Star Wars just so you know. I pretty much despise the films for the fanfare they receive. This is because the series is only mediocre at best. Regardless of that Episode III: Revenge of the Sith on the GBA looked interesting thanks to this episode of Video Game Take-Out.
Other games that VGTO has introduced me to that I didn’t regret getting were Hammerin’ Hero and Justice League Heroes: The Flash. I also plan on getting Kid Dracula and Ninja Five-O as well thanks to that show.
EVERY EXTEND EXTRA
The main reason I bought this game was because it looked somewhat interesting and that I noticed it on the shelf a lot when visiting Usagi704. It’s very easy to spot with such large letters on the spine.
POWER RANGERS: DINO THUNDER
With all of my talk in the past of owning, playing, beating, and mastering the SNES version of Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, some of you maybe thinking that I’ve been a fan of the series all along. I’m sure that this new purchase for the Gamecube doesn’t serve to help much. In reality I was only a very slight fan of a similar series called VR Troopers and never watched any of the Power Ranger shows though I was familar with it when I’d see an image or clip of it.
The main reason I bought this game, despite not knowing anything about it, was the very informative series of videos by Linkara analyzing the Power Rangers series (intro). I’ve since looked into the PR series (shows & games) along with the original Super Sentai series of which they’re based on.
KAMEN RIDER: DRAGON KNIGHT
The Power Rangers videos would then lead me to finding this YouTube channel where I’d learn about the long running series called Kamen Rider (1971). It lead me to info about the 2002 show, Kamen Rider: Ryuki, that was adapted into the 2009 show that this game was based on.
Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight was simply another game that interested me solely because of the odd excitement I currently have for such uniquely Japanese entertainment.
Another game I bought through glyde.com was Gradius V. I was way cheaper than the usual price it goes for ($40) complete, I was able to only pay $18 and it also included the bonus pre-order DVD.
THE MATRIX: PATH OF NEO
It sounded like fun after reading ebbderelict’s review.
MOBILE LIGHT FORCE 2
This is the game with the infamous box art that doesn’t fit with the shoot-’em-up genre that this game is from. It also has an interesting mechanic where your shots do more damage when passing close to enemy bullets.
