@Ryno: Lol I have to laugh Ryno and are beginning to think that we are connected telepathically or something. I just started replaying my copy of FFIV Advance last night. Not as good as FF III (VI) to me but still a great game.

yes. yesterday was Queen's Day here in the Netherlands and on that day the country basically turns into one giant yardsale. This was just a tiny lot compared to some previous years.

Clearly, the Jungle Book Lunch box is the standout

it's actually a console & cartridge case made by Forty-Four from the SNES / Genesis era. I spotted it and enquired about the price. Seller wanted 8 euro for the box "and everything inside". I took a quick peek, spotted some SNES carts and quickly paid the man. When i got home it turned out there were nine SNES games and two SNES controllers in the box. All that for only 8 euro!

i got up at six in the morning to prepare and hit the streets at about 7.00. The early bird catches the best worms The Wavebird was the most expensive purchase but still much cheaper than on eBay

Earthworm Jim (Sega Genesis), Mario Party 3, Army Men: Air Combat (N64), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters (Genesis), Kirby Air Ride, Prince of Persia (SNES version via Wii VC), Street Fighter II: Champion Edition (TG16 version via Wii VC), Mickey's Speedway USA (GBC), Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (Genesis), Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf (Genesis), Excitebike 64, Pilotwings 64, Super Battleship (Genesis), NBA Jam (Genesis), Championship Pro-Am, Prime Time NFL Starring Deion Sanders, Toy Story 2: Buzz Lightyear to the Rescue (PS1), Motocross Mania (PS1), Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 (PS1), Tetris Worlds (PS2), Donkey Kong Land, Sonic R (PC), Tekken 1 and 3 (PS1), Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 (PS1), and some WWE game for the Genesis.

Yes, I got these games over the course of around three days recently. Aside from Kirby Air Ride and the VC games; I found these games at a flea market, a store selling a bunch of various retro items, and a Game Exchange. All of these places are in the same town I currently live in. Even though I still think the internet is one of the best ways to find retro games, that doesn't mean just looking for retro games in your own town would be futile. And I got a lot of these games for a ridiculous cheap price.

It's a pirated version of Totally Spies!. I got all the handheld games in one big lot for very little money so I didnt bother to check 'm out.

@WavaTroopa: I never got SMG2 because I haven’t brought myself to finish SMG. I don’t know, I found it to be chore similar to all the reasons you stated. Also around that time I got my PS3 and I ignored my Wii for awhile for the sexier machine. I hope to get back to it and complete it someday but I just wonder if I am not a fan of “3D” Mario in general. I just recently downloaded SM64 through Club Nintendo and played it for like 2 seconds. N64 graphics make me shudder like a turtle without its shell. Agreed that the music is over the top. Something just feels off. Best soundtrack of this generation is Xenoblade Chronicles bar none. Dude, you didn’t answer my question either, when you going to get the WIi U hooked up to the party wagon??? At this rate oldmanonly will have his Wii U VC collection filled up before you even try NSMBU.

@Tasuki: That is funny, to many times we are thinking about the same games. What can we say, we have excellent taste! I still need to get a copy of VI Advance. I want to buy it sealed so I know its legit and will save.

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.

I bought Pokemon Snap on Sunday, if that's considered retro.

@ogo79 Oh, but it's not over yet, since I got Mario Party in the mail today.

@Ryno: Totally man. I need to get a copy of VI advance too for some reason I think I bought it but I dont have the game it seems. I looked in the area where I store my GBA games and the only ones I found was FF 1&2 Dawn of Souls and FFIV Advance. Its kinda weird that I dont have VI Advance since that is my favorite FF game ever. But I dont remember trading it in or selling it to someone but I don't know. The only thing I can think of is maybe it got lost when I moved a few years ago.
