Now that that's out of the way, my name is Jon and I'm from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I'm currently going to University studying Business. I have probably one of the BIGGEST collections of video games that most people will ever see, and my collection of "swag/promos/standees/collectables/soundtracks" is MASSIVE. I'm currently at around 1,500 games, of which I truly enjoy or have bought for collector's value. I also own some of the rarest collectables around.
Some of my favorite games are: Final Fantasy X, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Jet Grind Radio, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, Goldeneye, Okami, Shenmue II, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Kingdom Hearts II, The World Ends With You, Breath of Fire III, Final Fantasy VI, Perfect Dark, Bubble Bobble, Chrono Trigger, and Beyond Good & Evil.
So, here's another addition to my close to bi-weekly blog of "A Compulsive Collector's Haul!" This week, I got some EPIC games, and some even more EPIC swag! Let's begin . . .
First off, we have Time Hollow, which if you like adventure and text games like Hotel Dusk and Trace Memory, is a great, albeit short game. The rest of this haul is from my stomping grounds, Cash Converters! Once again, my buddy "Diamond" Dave pulled through again, with $5 for Kid Icarus, $10 for Excitebike, and . . . MARVEL VS. CAPCOM 2 for only 15 DOLLAROO! =D I now own ALL THREE versions of it! ^_^ I also got a Japanese Digital Devil Saga and a Japanese Tenchu Shinobi Taizen from my other buddy who works there!
Once again, thank you JoeCamNet for posting that Goozex blog! 3 awesome games from Goozex, one from a fellow DToid'er by the name of TheFil!
I will only share this, because I know that you fellow DToid'ers will appreciate this, but ANYTHING by Atlus or NIS (Nippon Ichi), you should buy from RosenQueen! For ordering through them, you get KICKASS promos like a PRINNY STYLUS and a little figurine you have to put together, and which I lucked out on, because I got the ETNA and PRINNY figure! =D I unfortunately missed out on the Rhapsody soundtrack, but you don't have to pay anything extra aside from shipping and you get SWEET swag!
A slow week for swag again, but a Rock Band 2 T-Shirt, Dead Space Artbook, and Fallout 3 Soundtrack aren't too bad either.
That ends another session of a Compulsive Collector's Haul! I expect to be posting my 700TH game in my collection sometime before Christmas, so stay tuned!
