Steampunk! I think Steamboy would play his games on a Gameboy like this one, no doubt.

Mario Is Missing!

bild 4 (6)

I recently noticed, after having worn my Punch Out!! socks for the umpteenth time, that the referee on the socks isn’t Mario, as in the original games. I guess the licensing got too expensive, or that Mario didn’t have time in his busy schedule to keep refereeing Little Mac’s boxing for 20 years. I mean, he’s got to call it quits sometime, right?

I think it’s more logical to conclude that Mario didn’t have time to be the referee. Licensing issues, pheh. What was I thinking?

Game Hunting: A Dream Come True

This awesome Game Boy sign, which I've wanted for some time (ever since I was a kid), was showcased in stores just above the shelves where they held the Gameboy games. Initially he priced it for 30 pounds, but when my wife gave me a look of warning (for buying a cheap piece of plastic she explained later) I got this one for 20 pounds instead. The seller simply reduced the price when seeing my wife giving me that look. You don't find these signs all too often, and when you do they're priced from 80 pounds and up. I made a great deal.

This awesome Game Boy sign, which I’ve wanted for some time, back in my youth it was showcased in stores just above the shelves where they held the Gameboy games. Initially the dude priced it for 28 pounds, but when my wife gave me a look of warning (for buying “a cheap piece of plastic” as she explained it later) I got this one for 18 pounds instead. The seller simply reduced the price on his own accord when seeing my wife giving me that look. ¬†Hah! You don’t find these signs all too often, and when you do they’re priced from 80 pounds and up. I made a great deal.

Batman for 8 pounds. Kind of a good deal, not the cheapest find but for less than I've seen it being sold for (around 15 pounds).

I bought this for 5 pounds. It's for my brother. The story goes like this: he was about to get the game for free in a flea market and I somehow didn't get it and he lost his shot because of that. As a consolation I bought this one for him.

I remember this game from when I was a child and I remember it being an entertaining game, and so I bought it for 12 pounds.

Yeah! Now I've got all 4 in the handheld series. I just started playing it and it's a fun game. For 8 pounds.

This one was in a bargain bin for 2 pounds. It has a slight defect in the upper right corner.

This game was in the discount box since it's so cluttered. It's an ex-rental copy of Blast Corps, a game I remember renting. And now I have a rental copy. Isn't that clutter charming? For 2 pounds.

Now Playing: Dragon Warrior II

bild 1 (4)

In Dragon Quest I I finally managed to collect the Rain Staff and Sun Stone to create the Rainbow Bridge, the same one that the Hero with the weak sounding name Loto, your ancestor, did. Then I crossed it and…

… then I managed to clear out the castle and defeat Dracolord, a disappointingly weak final boss. Maybe I overleveled my character but I honestly didn’t expect the game to be that short. Rexx, you’re the greatest hero.

A game well played, well played. Now on to the second game!!!

And drumrolls and a grand entrance for Prince Oboe.
Yeah… I named him Oboe. Descendant of the great Hero Rexx, who in turn came from the mighty lineage of Loto, our very own Prince Oboe.

Prince Oboe with his distant relative Prince John in the party.
Now go, Oboe.

And here’s the trio. Prince Oboe, Prince John and Princess Mary. See how far they’re apart in levels? Yeah, the other ones start at Lv. 1 too… and that’s really tough in an environment when you need at least Lv. 8 to even walk in that area and survive.
