New Old-School Additions

Happy Easter!

Yesterday I happened upon some fine new additions for my NES, and Game Boy collections.

As you can see, most of these were marked to sell for $10 each.  I ended up being able to snag all of them with the PS1 memory card for $20!  Tetris is the only game in the lot that I already had.  Excellent deal!  I ended up beating Super Mario Land in one sitting last night.

But I also managed to find a good deal on some games for my NES collection as well.

These were only $3 each.  There were a few others I could’ve used for the collection, but these were the best of the bunch in my opinion.  There was also a very nice looking Zelda cartridge(mint!), but I already have it(maybe I should pick it up if it’s there on my next visit).  All of these games are games that I haven’t previously(I may have played Code Name Viper) played before, so that’s a plus.

But, there was also something in the box of games that was also $3.  And it was previously devoid from my collection as well(surprisingly).

I picked this up before I even looked at any of the games.  This gives me a reason to play every single NES game that I own.  Though it came it’s original box, it is missing the code book.  I’m sure I’ll have no problem finding codes.  I’m surprised it took me this long to finally get a Game Genie.  Maybe I was holding out to find one still in the box(always a plus).

But this is probably my favorite thing about it.

No wonder my dad never bought us one!  And that’s marked down by $35!  I really dig the old Electronics Boutique logo.
