So my local retro store changed locations from the garage to a cool basement shop in the Big Chief Lewis building. By the way, this is Big Chief Lewis:

Untitled

He's sort of a Long Island landmark; about 5-6 meters tall, and been around for as long as I can remember. Also makes it easy to give directions to the building (located next to him) — "Just look for the big frickin' Indian!" :D

Anyways, here's my pick-ups this time:
Untitled

ColecoVision: Donkey Kong Junior, and a Coleco controller insert for WarGames (I already own the game, possibly my fave on ColecoVision)
NES: Legend of Kage (one of my favorites; every review you've read is simply wrong) and Super Mario Bros. (which I somehow did not have in my collection), along with sleeve and a manual (for the Duck Hunt/SMB combo cart, but thrown in for free, yay)
N64: Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker — been wanting to get this for a while, so I pounced on it. Sadly though, my N64 has been acting up lately ...

Yeah, think i'm gonna have to do that. The system has been randomly resetting — sometimes it'll reset repeatedly at game starting screens, sometimes it'll be fine for like 5 minutes and then reset (which is more annoying). Grrrr....

Also, Big Chief Lewis would never part with his beloved horse ... unless he gets to into his mighty peace pipe ... :D

With the money I'm saving not going to Golden Corral, I can afford to buy a cart and manual for Steel Empire for Genesis. Probably average, but then that would still make it the best Flying Edge (aka LJN for Sega) game I've played. :)
(and the comments on the gameplay video I saw went in the direction of saying only weird people like those who don't like Justin Bieber would play this game. :D Well, then I am glad to be weird, and play a ton of games most people never heard of.)

My last purchase? THAT IS SPARTAN. TIMES TWO.
(aka Kung Fu 2, for the Famicom, which I realized isn't as insanely expensive if I ignore CIB copies. Unless my skills have decreased in recent years, I'll probably still finish it in as many minutes as dollars spent on the game. :P )
Not sure why one Japanese gameplay video calls it a kusoge, it is pretty good with the only problem being that normal mode is fairly easy. Which I like more than the first game. The first strangling guy always kills me on that one.

I just about pulled the trigger on this hand held tiger electronics mega masterpiece that puts every single NES console MM to complete shame. ;) Seriously, if you tied me down and forced me to play either this or the latest and not so greatest Call of Duty number 29, i would go TIGER in a heart beat.

@CountWavula: Nice, I bet you are going to play that for like less than 5 minutes knowing your attention span. Haha... :) Is every level in that Dr. Wily Castle?

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

@CountWavula Ah jeez that brings back terrible memories of the Tiger Street Fighter 2 one I had as a kid. It was aweful but I could play it for hours on a car ride.

Five minutes is pretty long for a Tiger game. :P
(and do I want to know what sort of crimes that thing commits to the Mega Man 2 soundtrack?)
