My latest Gaming Collection Haul (with pics)

New stuff is coming and going from my apt. all the time. Since I usually sell things I have multiples of on ebay and Amazon, it's kinda turning into a UPS hub here ;) I typically only sell stuff I have two or more of so I can afford to buy (and have the display space in the man-cave for) the oddities and rare peices I love so much.

My latest Haul has probably two or three of my favorite all-time pieces. The first being a Limited Edition Mario Game Boy Advance from the UK. I found this online. I've never seen one before. It's a red and gray Mario vs Donkey Kong ltd. edt. GBA. The box is pretty beat up, but the system is pretty nice, but not too nice where I won't want to even play with it, like my other Ltd. Edt. GBAs.

Next up is another one of my favorites. This thing is really fucking cool. It's a Ltd. Edt. Game Boy Advance classic from Japan. Much like the packaging from my UK GBA classic from before, except it's like a little Famicom! The Box is much smaller than my other systems, which makes it all the much cooler!

Next up is some random games I picked up recently. I managed to find two really nice copies of Metroid Prime Trilogy (one is sealed and looks like it just came out of the case). I also got a few GBA games C.I.B. in a bundle I purchased from some guy, the copy of Zelda is Sealed, but kinda beat-up... oh well, it's Zelda.

I've got three of these Game & Watch U.S. systems now, if anyones interested, I'd be willing to sell one or two of them. PM me and let me know. I also picked up this game Monster Tale yesterday at Target for 19.99... it's amazing! It's a new take on a Metroidvania Game style, look up the reviews, they're Golden.... This one is definitely going to be one of the sleeper hits of this Gen.... Go get it now, it's on Sale for the next week at Target! BTW, it's such an homage to Metroid, that if you look closely on the cover, you can see the sidekick looks like a Metroid!!

Finally, I'll leave you with last nights haul. My local Gamestop here in Chicago had the Midnight launch of L.A. Noire. Rockstar stopped by and dropped off a bunch of Swag. I actually won the T-Shirt in a raffle at the end of the night, supposedly it's a limited edition.

I'll leave it at that for now. I've come a long way with the "man-cave" as well, so I'll be showing some more pics of that and more hauls as they come in.

Thanks for looking and commenting, everyone. It really is my pleasure to be able to share this stuff with you guys. If you're ever in the Chicago area and want to hang or game, hit me up on the PM!!
