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, my bi-weekly blog has been absent for a while, mainly due to the fact I misplaced my SD Card to USB adapter thing, so I couldn't upload my pictures . . . =( Luckily, I managed to find it today, so here's a quick update with another one that's even more epic in the next coming days . . .
Here we have my handheld haul from a few weeks ago. You've got good old Castlevanis: Order of Ecclesia, my NON-AUTOGRAPHED copy of Neverland Card Battles since I ive in Canada . . . -_-', and continuing my theory of I must collect all things Atlus is Master of the Monster Lair. Also, got cheap/rare/good GBA games off eBay for cheap, with Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising, Breath of Fire, and Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament.
Once again, if you haven't listened to JoeCamNet yet . . . listen to me! SIGN UP FOR GOOZEX! Freaking Zone of Enders: The 2nd Runner, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner - Raidou Kuzuhona vs. The Soulless Army, and Aedis Eclipse: Generation of Chaos . . . ALL from Goozex!
The "Collector's/Special/Limited/Premier/etc" Edition bastard inside of me, reared its head once again. We have Fallout 3 Collector's Edition, primarily Amazon.CA (stupid USA only bullcrap) didn't get the Survival Edition, Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 Premier Edition, and Dokapon Kingdom were all new buys. CASH CONVERTERS and my buddy DIAMOND "FREAKING" DAVE pulled through for me again. I got an INBOX (look at it, that box is like MINT!) original GameBoy with Tetris, Gungrave: Overdose, and Monster Hunter!
SWAG ALERT! I LOVE having eBay friends and such, although I got some of this through "normal" means. GTA IV Blockbuster exclusive framed Niko picture, Advance Wars: Days of Ruin beanie, Harvest Moon: Tree of Tranquility 10th Anniversary Plush Cow (I have all 6 Harvest Moon plushies ^_^), Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia Promo Soundtrack, Ydddra Union Promo Soundtrack, Wii Fit Socks, and Puchi Puchi Virus Stress Reliever with a PRINNY on it! =D
So, I work part time at BestBuy and we get a surprising amound of promo stuff that is usually left unwanted. I liberated some, some of which will be passed onto you guys when I decide to finally hold a contest. Not necessarily game related but . . . The Incredible Hulk Lithograph, Fallout 3 Nuka Cola Bottle Opener, Game Crazy Sticker and Looney Tunes DVD (from eBay friend), Farcry 2 Faceplate, Family Guy Lithograph, The Art of Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, and my buddy gave me a Ninja Gaiden Wall Scroll!
COUNTINGCONFLICT FREAKING RULES! d('-'d) You guys may have remembered he held a contest for a Persona 4 shirt, which I won with helping to edit my buddy Chao's Persona 4 FAQ on GameFAQs! First of all, I hope you got that stuff sorted out with Atlus and Game Crazy CountingConflict . . . =S Still, it arrived and I found an interesting note! Another American who likes HOCKEY! =O Been finding you guys like crazy lately, lol. While I do AGREE with you the Flames suck . . . I believe you'll be even angrier to find out what team I do support CountingConflict . . . =P Thanks once again!
