Sunday Roundup: 2/14/16

New Games (2-14-16)Way back in 2013 when I was just visiting California I decided to check out one of the local used game stores. While I found some games there and the owner had an impressive selection, I never decided to go back there once I moved here because of the prices. They weren’t terrible, they were just fair. And while fair is fine, I’m not usually looking for fair (I’m looking for great!). This week I decided to check out Game World once again, hoping maybe some things had changed. Well, the place was just as cramped and overflowing as before, and the prices were just the same. Regardless, maybe I’ll have to check out the place more simply because it’s really the only place to get PS2 and earlier era games! Let’s take a look at this week’s haul.

Sunday Roundup: 2/8/15

New Games (2-8-15)Good lord, when stores have sales I tend to go crazy! This time around, Space Cat, a local used game store, moved locations to a bigger yet somehow more cramped space, and to commemorate the transition offered 50% off their used games under $9.99! I’m sure you can tell I picked up a lot of titles. What was doubly great about this deal however was the fact that a lot of games I previously passed on during my past visits to the store were still there, and now they’re even cheaper! Those account for a lot of the pickups this week. There was also a random visit to a board game selling couple on Craigslist that lead to a new Wii Fit as well as a very successful trip to Mountain View’s GameStop! And any week I can scrounge up a Sega Saturn game is a good week, so throw that onto the pile for this post as well! (more…)

Sunday Roundup: 2/23/14

New Games (2-23-14)Man, it has been awhile since I had a true Sunday Roundup to talk about! Just one game is fine and all, but let’s face it: Just one game isn’t going to cut it for expanding upon one’s collection now is it? Speaking of collections, this week is comprised mostly of Dreamcast games, a system I am always on the lookout for but never seem to come across. So here’s to you Space Cat, and to more fruitful visits!
