You got the MH Rise special edition Switch? Did you get the Pro Controller as well? It's a nice collector edition.

I've blown a lot of money on physical Switch games and CEs. Maybe overcompensating from all those yrs of feeling deprived. But I'm running out of room to store games and merch, so I think after this generation, I'm done with physical media. I've already gone 100% digital on PS5 and Steam- Switch is the last hold out. Gonna finish up this gen and... that's it. All digital after that.

I regret a lot of the figures I purchased. I have like 7 of the Monster Hunter Creator's models on my shelf, with the Fatalis preordered and the Palamute statue preordered. I wanted to cancel Fatalis because it's SO BIG. I'll have to put it on the floor or something. It's MASSIVE. But PlayAsia shut down cancelations after a certain date. So I guess I'm stuck getting it.

The figures add up and become too much. Even amiibo- I own every amiibo made to date (barring cereal and cards, etc) and I had to stash a bunch of Super Mario Bros series amiibo in the closet. No room. If I only had amiibo, and 1/7 scale statues for Fire Emblem and Xenoblade, and the MH creators models, it would still be a lot, but manageable. But I got sucked into Nendoroids and Figmas and all that crap a few yrs back. I'm thinking of boxing it all up.

@JaxonH Nice sized collection. Especially considering that you are relatively newer to the hobby from what I have gathered from your posts. You might want to toss those pics into the swag/memorabilia thread for further discussion.

I think my collection is modest but I am not looking forward to setting it back up when I move next year (put it off due to the pandemic).

@JaxonH your collection is so cool! I hope to one day have something like that set up in my house. When I moved, I actually got rid of so much of my merch because I have nowhere to properly display it and it was a PITA to move, all I have left is now just in one small cabinet. I had also gone almost entirely digital for games, due to me moving to basically just Steam and Gamepass, however, it does sometimes work out cheaper to buy physical Switch games rather than doing it through the digital storefront which is weird. I just don't have the room to store physical games though, I had to stop collecting BluRays for the same reason. I just plugged up every spare space I had with them and then decided enough was enough. Hopefully one day I move into a place big enough that I can have a proper set up like yours.

I also didn't get the Rise pro controller, I only found out after I bought the regular Pro controller that a Rise one existed

There's something to be said for a minimalist setup. For one, you save a ton of cash on merch that, let's be honest, is just an indulgence. It also doesn't clutter your space. I kept having to buy more shelves. And another one. And then another one. They'd just keep filling up.

I think what made me want a collection was this YouTube channel called Nintendo Collecting. He ran a "Nintendo Collecting 101" series that gave tips and stuff, showed off collector items, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Of course, he has an massive basement and add on room filled to the brim with merch and games. Probably $100k worth. It's a sight to behold. Custom NES tables, every color N64 system ever made boxed up, thousands of games...

I was like, OK. I'll NEVER be able to have a collection like that. But, I can start small and accumulate over the years. It's crazy how fast it adds up.

@Ryu_Niiyama
Back in 2012 before I bought my Wii U, I had nothing except a 3DS with Zelda Ocarina of Time, Star Fox 64 3D, Street Fighter IV 3D and Resident Evil Revelations, and a Vita with Unit 13, Wipeout 2048, Call of Duty Black Ops 2: Declassified and Uncharted Golden Abyss. I remember my brother going off about this "Xenoblade" game on the Wii and how awesome it was. Made me want to buy some Wii games. Started watching eBay and snatching up games in auctions. Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, Xenoblade, Zelda Twilight Princess, etc. Soon I was buying GameCube games. Then DS games... it's why I don't have nearly as many games for systems before 3DS/Wii U.

Maybe I will share in the swag thread. That's a good idea.

I hate moving. Especially when you have to move your gaming collection. It SUCKS. I had to do it once before, and I hated it. And that was 7 yrs ago. Probably had 10% of what I have now.

Thanks! Only a gamer can appreciate a gaming collection. Non-gamers probably see it and think, huh?

@JaxonH Really impressive set-up! I'll admit, I'm low-key jealous about those Pyra/Mythra figures.

With that said, I've been thinking about going in the opposite direction for a while. Not quite full minimalist, but some decluttering would do me well. I'm planning on letting off the gas with all of these purchases soon anyway.

My goal for the next few year is to just skate by with the essential purchases and work on my backlog.

@Ralizah
Thanks 😊 Pyra and Mythra and KOS-MOS will soon be joined by Melia. That's why there's a space to the left.

I get it. Space is constantly an issue, and another 10 yrs at this pace simply won't do. Once Switch generation wraps up, that's it. I'm done. Exceptions will be made only for the highest priority items.

It's fun for a while. But there does come a point where it's like, ok. If I buy this it's just gonna get crammed on the shelf, another brick in the wall. But having already bought so many Switch games I can't just abandon the Switch collection with only 2-3 yrs left in the cycle.

Also, I've learned it's better to have 6 figures on a shelf spread out looking orderly and aesthetically pleasing, than to cram 10 figures on a shelf to fit them all, and then it just looks cluttered. Less is more in many cases.

Just noticed that boxboy amiibo. Super nice! I’m not paying what scalpers want for that thing though.

Anyone want a Switch OLED?

Switch OLED BUY ME!!! $392 USD shipped to US

Switch OLED Amazon UK for British fellows

The white version (and maybe neon also) is available right now on Amazon Italy for $392 USD shipped to the USA. That's only $27 more than it would cost here after tax.

They're gonna be OOS for a while. So if you missed out and were hoping to grab one, just open an Amazon.it account, use Google Chrome which auto translates to English, and you're golden.

I regularly order from Amazon.it and Amazon.fr and Amazon.es and Amazon.de and Amazon.co.jp and Amazon.co.uk for importing so I already had an account and don't need translating to make a purchase (just hit yellow buttons through checkout lol). But my address and payment is already saved.

@Ryu_Niiyama
I heard that thing was crazy expensive now. I imported it for like $15 shipped from Amazon Japan back when it released.

You guys gotta see this. Jaffe gets absolutely roasted, and deservedly so…

And then again, for his new take, it gets even more embarrassing lol

This is comedy gold, and will go down in the archives of gaming history for us all to laugh at for years to come. He’s a one of a kind meme generator lol

Those videos just make me afraid of getting older. Remind me to stop playing action games by 50.

Who is that dude? I kinda stopped caring about all this social media stuff.

David Jaffe has gone from being an influential game designer to a has-been clickbait youtuber who can only get people thinking about him again by saying outrageous things on the internet.

Case in point:

https://www.pushsquare.com/news/2021/09/twisted_metal_creator...

However, he then shifts focus somewhat to claiming he could damage Sony by sharing dirt on them. In some fairly bizarre threats, he says: "I know things. I know where the bodies are buried. Hell, I know who pulled the trigger before they buried the f*cking bodies. I’m not saying I’m going to give sh*t away that’s going to hurt people, because I don’t want to be a dick, but… you should’ve called. You should’ve called."

The Twisted Metal creator then goes on to stress how he made two franchises for Sony and claims what he has said on YouTube has always been "honest and accurate". "Let’s say this — and I would never reveal these things — but let’s just say that you’re morons Sony if you think that a lot of your meetings are unrecorded and unshared out in the world, because that’s not the case. But I would never share that."

The guy going full DarkSydePhil on Metroid Dread was designed to get a bunch of angry nerds to make videos about him to spread his name and channel around, I'm sure, so... mission accomplished?

David Jaffe created some of my favorite game series in Twisted Metal and God of War. Disappointing to see what a moron he really is.

This isn’t the first time influential game designers have revealed who they really are to the world and it won’t be the last.

@JaxonH
Your's certainly makes my collection look pretty small. I probably have a similar number of Wii games as you, maybe half the number of Wii U and DS games. 3DS and Switch but.... oof...
