A bit of a different kind of review here this time. So my collection was approaching 1500 games and I was recently looking to add extra insurance on my collection, just in case something bad ever does happen. But that got me thinking.. I don't really have a very good way of keeping track of what I actually have or what it's all worth, so I set out to find something that can do just that!
Alright so I missed doing an update last weekend.. not because I was lazy for a change, but because I was a bit incapacitated. I was riding home from a friends place and a car decided to knock me off the road. I was in hospital all weekend with fractured my ribs and have been in considerable pain all week. But, as usual, it hasn't stopped me from hunting for games..
Well my memory and organizational skills are lacking this week.. I just realized the controllers I got last week were put in this weeks photo. What an idiot.. It's mainly because I have SO MUCH STUFF right now and nowhere to put it. I'm running out of room once again.. I need to get more shelves for my cupboards. I've found someone on Gumtree selling some so i'll try grab them this week.
Holy shit what a hectic end of year.. I was so busy with work, Christmas, New Years, more work.. I'm not even sure how I found time to look for games, but I did. Trust me, I did. I have photos to prove it. I may not have been making articles each week, but I still took the photos. I think some items were duplicates in the photos (Pokemon Yellow and a demo disk) - this is because I currently have shit everywhere my place is getting way too full and I need to tidy it up.
Okay it has been a little while since I've done an update. Actually I wasn't finding very much.. and then all of a sudden I was finding games everywhere! Picked up some massive hauls.. Then I spent a heap of time putting the duplicates up for sale, listed nearly 100 things on eBay. Plus I've been spending heaps of time playing Pokemon Sun, so I haven't been keeping up with updates.. time to fix that!
Some awesome finds this week! I haven't added many new games to my Gamecube collection for a while now, over 250 games so there are only a few i'm missing. So first up a huge thanks to my buddy Pat at Cash Converters who sent me a message when they got in some Gamecube games that I didn't have in my collection. Added Pokemon Channel and Mario Party 5 and also picked up some others that were relatively cheap. I also picked up Mario Bros for DS, Animal Crossing and Monster Hunter 3.
Well at least explaining where everything was purchased this week will be easy - everything you see here was purchased from online stores/eBay/auction sites. Most of them were picked up with the script I wrote too. I love to code, I do it as a job, as a hobby.. but the few times i've done it and it makes me money, it's a very good feeling.
I got my usual online pickups; New 3DSXL $130, Ocarina of Time $15, Monster Hunter 3 $15, Animal Crossing $15, Pokemon Dash, Black, White and White 2 all around $20 each. I got some newer games too; New Super Mario Bros Wii U $20, Monster Hunter Tri $15 and Mario Maker for $20 - really happy with this one, have been wanting this game for so long now. I love my oldschool platformers and have been hoping to find it at a good price. Speaking of old school, I also got Mario All Stars, Donkey Kong 2, 3 and Diddy Kong Racing all for around $20 each.
