Game Run! 8/12/08- Killer Instinct, TMNT: TF, Super Tennis


System: SNES
Store: Game Xchange
Price: $1.75 (10% off! yay!)

Ok... It's official... I'm buying crap just buy it. Probably just to make myself feel better for not being able to afford Kirby's Dream Land 3, whose price tag taunts me day and night. You are so very cruel Kirby. So very cruel. I saw this game and it was a dollar. I also like old Tennis games actually and I hear this one is pretty good. So whatever. Yeah, I bought Super Tennis.

If you haven't played the game...
...it's Tennis. However, I already knew that and still didn't realize how hard this game was. Holy crap! It's nothing to write home about, but it was a dollar and it has some pretty cool Mode-7 effects so whatever.


I need money... Fast. My friend was even able to buy Earthbound this week and I got stuck with Super Tennis. A lot of good games have been rolling into Game Xchange lately, but I simply can't afford them. Maybe when I move back into the dorms and I'm buying less gas I'll be able to afford 7th Saga or Donkey Kong Country, but for now they laugh at me from the shelf in the back of the store.

I've also been on an SNES craze lately so I apologize for that. I REALLY want an NES (I gave my old one to charity... Long story.) but they're 60-40 dollars! Not to mention that the top-loading ones (which I REALLY want) are 80! Rediculous! I bought my second NES for 20 bucks like 6 or 7 years ago! Whatever though, I also haven't been buying a lot of games because I've been very satisfied playing Final Fantasy 3/6 and a couple of others so at least I don't NEED any new games. See you guys next week!

About jackal27one of us since 1:28 AM on 06.16.2008

I'm mostly a retro gamer. I don't hate everything after the 90's, but I tend to prefer retro game design. I enjoy alot of indie and portable games, not to mention a blockbuster title every now and then. However, like I said, the majority of my gaming takes place on older consoles.
