"Haul" stuff from the past 10 months, Skies of Arcadia FTW Edition (pic HEAVY)

edit: top of the page edit \o/ you may have seen this on kotaku, just a note: my name is not ryan, the guy who did the work for me submitted it and they got the story a bit wrong (kotaku being kotaku :p)

*cough* shamelessly copying funktastic here's a "haul" blog, though I suppose I've done it afore as well. Lot of spiffy stuff.... I dunno what to say really ontop of that so I'm just gonna start with the pictures :P Oh and I'd like to apologize in advance for my shitty photography skills and worse camera :( Due to the blurryness using flash is my only option :/

Startin off with some PC Games! This an order from knight discounts, (cept for diablo). Sealed when I got em but not anymore.
Evil Genius - Evil Genius crime simulator? Wouldn't really call it an RTS, it's a lot of fun though ;p
Gunman Chronicles - oldschool fps, not amazing but still I like it quite a bit.
Invasion Earth - Haven't played it yet
Overlord II - everyone knows this ;p probably should finish the first one first :<
Gunmetal - Mechs \o/ haven't booted it up yet.

More PC games \o/
Book of Id - Lots of awesome stuff, got it mostly for the doom collection and more importantly COMMANDER KEEN COLLECTION
The Witcher - an early birthday present
Silent Storm Gold Edition - Not usually a huge fan of turn based game, but it's pretty damn fun. tactical rts? dunno what it's classified as :< WW2, mechs, plasma rifles, and fun :P

Rune Factory Frontier (wii) - Harvest moon with dungeon exploring!
Radiata Stories - JRPG for the ps2

More Wii games \o/
Deadspace Extraction - Everyone knows what this is, deadspace + rail shooter
Hotd Overkill - Another rail shooter, a little too easy ;p
Hotd 2&3 Return - Bastards didn't include the original....
Okami - 3 of them \o/ (so a total of 4) One with each of the different inserts, 2 artwork ones, 1 regular, 1 ign edition

More stuff \o/
Super Mario Bros. Wii - No description needed!
Dirge of Cereberus - Meh... it's ok
Skies of Arcadia Legends - If you've seen my past blogs or you know me, you know that I LOVE skies of arcadia. SoA FTW. Second copies ftw?
Medievil - Awesome PS1 action adventure game. Now for the second one!
Record of Agarest War - You've seen this here and everywhere ;p the ultra naught edition!


Now for some even more awesome stuff!

Bonta-kun \o/ from Full Metal Panic - Fumoffu? Awesome anime, and bonta is even more awesome! Was originally trying to sell the first bonta but decided against it (also lack of interest :P)

Alien Warrior Statue - From Alien Resurrection: Oddly enough my favorite (blasphemy I no) and while they were never red they do look badass in that color.

Alien Face Hugger - Yah I noticed the finger :< Too lazy to retake the pics now sorry :P Rest assured that it's fixed

Not Suggestive face at all

Porco Russo 1/72 Fine Molds plane - From favorite studio ghibli movie Porco Rosso, I recommend it to everyone.

Chrono Trigger - Blueprints of the Time Wing (Epoch) and time key keychain are from fangamer, the figs are the new formation arts figures. Not sure if I'll get the fifth jappo only one.

Now for some consoles \o/
Limited Edition Crystal Xbox - from canada, cause that's the only place it got an NTSC release.

Now: The dreamcast, again if you know me you know I LOVE the dreamcast, almost as much as I love Skies of Arcadia (not quite as much :P). And that I have a bunch of em, but you can never have enough! :P

Spare Dreamcast - Free from a friend.

Green Shell Dreamcast - Modded to play jappo games as well.

Grey Shell Dreamcast - With my favorite game \o/ How could I resist? I couldn't :|

Smoke Shell Dreamcast - Couldn't resist the sexy keyboard and mouse ;p

Red Shell Dreamcast - Wow, what to say about this, I've been lookin for one of these for a while, they seem to be hard to find. After 2 years I had given up but was just bored and found this, what luck! Cept for the nasty scratch up top that has to be buffed out ><

LED Kit - For my fifth element cel frame, 35mm cells are pitch black unless theirs a light behind them (the tiny bit you see blow in the pic is from the flash)

But you get a led kit and stick it behind it.... bam sexyness! If you haven't seen Fifth Element before you are depriving yourself and I heartily recommend it. Sorry for the crappy pic best one I could get :/ They're actually very clear the fuzzyness is a result of my and my camera's failure :*(

Hardly a Skies of Arcadia FTW Edition is it :/ just 2 extra copies of the game, unless....

The LED Kit behind the fifth element cells left some wires sitting under it, a travesty :|

SoA always up to the job.

Skies of Arcadia Artbook - Pretty much the only part of the Jappo LE that I want. Cept for maybe the hankerchef :<


And the last part, my 14th dreamcast (not including the spare). The piece de resistance, lots of money and many months of waiting.


The lid is cut out and held up by form fitting plastic (thumbs up for thumbs up and for size comparison, It's smaller then you think :o and looks 10x more awesome then it does in the pics). The sticker is pal and the power led changed to blue (it is an ntsc u dc though)

You may notice that it's not the blue sticker, the guy who did most of the work on this took these pics (and I'm using them cause they're better then mine :P) so the blue sticker wasn't on it yet (put it on myself when it got here)

Since there has been some confusion in the past over the custom stuff I've gotten I want to stress that I DID NOT MAKE THIS. I provided the idea, the cash, and some crude ms paint drawings outlining what I wanted that was it!

Rai (also platinumfungi) is the one who made this, here's his site. Linkage

Here's a youtube video he put together (the song is Aboard the Little Jack if I'm not wrong).Video Linkage

Skies of Arcadia is an amazing jrpg originally for the dreamcast and then later received an enhanced port on the gamecube. It is my favorite game and I love the hell out of it, if your interested in reading or watching a little about it I have some videos going over it (warning, my voice is dry sorry if the vid is boring/crap :*/). It's missing a lot and it's not amazing but that's because Skies of Arcadia is that epic!

Vid Part 1
Vid Part 2

*PHEW* That was a lot :P Gonna post it now and proof it later :< I R LAZY
