LONG BLOG

My Magnificent May Haul

My Magnificent May Haul

So another month comes to an end and with it comes a new blog. The month of May for me was a rather sweet month. I found tons of good stuff, lots of retro (some REALLY retro) stuff as well as some new goodies.

Before we get to the good stuff I just want to say that this will probably be the last “Haul” blog that I write until the end of the summer, the company I work for just had a big layoff this past Friday and while I feel my job is secure I don’t want to make any big purchases until I know for sure, which will be more towards the end of August-ish.

Now, on to the good stuff!

I'll start with the retro stuff first:

Behold and feast your eyes on the Monteverdi TV Sports 825:




This bad boy cost me a whopping FIVE DOLLARS!!!! Oh and it works, like a charm
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next we have the VictorMaxx Virtual Reality Stuntmaster headset.




I got this from Goodwill for 10 bucks. The strap is broken in one spot but is an easy fix. The whole unit works great and for those who are not familiar with what this is or what it does here ya go: The VictorMaxx Virtual Reality Stuntmaster would hook up to your Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis so that you could play your games in private in a “virtual reality” setting. Basically there are just two small lcd screens inside that bulky 5 pound monstrosity.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This was a neat little find:


Working portable Space Invaders game.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here is some more retro goodness for all of you old school gamers:

Pac-Man plush with ghost in mouth. Nice.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Ok, time to move in to the more current stuff:


My GameBoy carryall. This fella came with 7 GameBoy games and a working Gameboy.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Speaking of GameBoy, here are the games that it came with:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Since we’re on the subject of Nintendo, sorta….For Memorial Day me and the family traveled north to visit my dad, while I was there he bestowed on to me one of the greatest gaming hauls/finds that I have ever had. Here we go:


















--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Oh yea, he also had some Super Nintendo games as well:









Yea, my dad pretty much rocks.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here are the Sega Genesis finds that I lucked out on:







--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Another NES title that was NOT given to me by my dad:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


A couple of Nintendo 64 games:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PS, PS2 and Xbox finds:



(still sealed)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


My DS finds:






--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


GameCube:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


My one lonely Wii purchase:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Xbox 360:


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


And last but not least, my new pride and joy:


PSN ID: Chillybillz if anyone wants to add me

I took advantage of the GameStop buy 2 get 1 free deal this weekend and picked these up to go with the new PS3:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Well, that’s it. I figured since I wouldn’t be purchasing much over the next few months that I would go out with a bang in May.

Until next time my fellow Destructoid fellows (and ladies)

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:

50 Consoles
61 Handhelds
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.

Sometimes, when I'm not gaming or collecting I'll post blogs, here are a couple recent ones:

ChillyBilly's Hidden Gems - Nano Assault
