I have sworn many, many times that I would slow my collecting down to focus on other things. I've also said that because I literally have no more room in my place to hoard all of this stuff and I think I may have to actually get a storage unit somewhere until I move to a bigger place.
As seen in my last Haul Blog
, my intentions of slowing down have, let's just say, not been fully realized. I try though, I really do.
, or as I like to call him; "My Enabler".
Occams has slowly become my go to guy for harder to find gems and games. It seems like at least once a week I get a DM from him asking if I am interested in X, Y or Z game. The thing is, nine times out of ten I AM interested in what he has, and that's not helping my situation any.
In this episode I will highlight some of the gems that Occams has found for me. Oh and there's a bunch of other stuff as well.
As usual, I will start with the older stuff and then move on to the newer games/swag/items.
First up we have:
Hey look, it's a .//Hack Rebirth USB Hub!
Thanks for always looking out for me Occams, I really do appreciate all of your help.
And thank all of you for stopping by today, I hope your stay was a pleasant one.
Until next time!

About ChillyBillyone of us since 7:08 PM on 02.03.2007
I'm the former Community Playdate Manager for Destructoid. Looking to play some games with other Dtoiders? Check out the forums and watch the blogs and front page for all of the fun!
I'm definitely more "collector" than gamer these days. Sure I still play my Wii U/ Xbox One/PS4/Vita and 3DS, and I love them all, but I just don't have the free time to play them like I used to.
I started my gaming life on an old Atari 2600 that my dad bought us for Christmas. I used to frequent the local arcade (early 80's) and I have a passion for anything pinball.
As of this update (2/20/2016) I currently have:
2100 physical copies of various games
350 digital copies of games
Tons of other video game related items
Comic books? Yep, I read 'em. Here are some of my all-time favorites.
Cerberus the Aardvark Groo the Wanderer Howard the Duck Usagi Yojimbo BatMan
I also love music, all types really. If I had to pick a favorite album of all time I would have to go with:
The Cure: Disintegration. This album is perfect, from beginning to end.
My daughter is also a gamer of sorts, here she is lavishing in all of her Nintendo plushies:
Oh yea, did I mention that I love Pinball more than any other game ever? Because I totally do.
I also like to doodle when I'm bored, as seen below
I drew that when I was bored.
