Latest Purchases #36
Went into fye and picked up DBZ Season Nine used on the cheap. This is the last of the orange brick box sets and it includes the Fusion and Kid Buu Sagas. The long and convoluted battle against Maijin Buu is wrapped up on this set and is the conclusion to DBZ. It's been years since I've seen these episodes but I remember loving every minute of the Fusion Saga, especially when Vegeta and Goku fused to from Vegito, my favorite fused character. All I need now is season seven and I'll have collected all of DBZ. Next I'll work on getting the rest of DBZ Kai.
It's been some time since I picked up any PS2 games and these were very cheap. I once owned Atari Anthology and loaned it to a friend and he ended up losing it. Needless to say, it's great to have this collection again. Among the 85 games on this disc are Tempest, Missile Command, Super Break Out and Warlords.
I've heard good things about Bully and thought about picking up the Wii's version of Scholarship edition but when I saw the PS2 version for chump change, I figured I'd skip out on the extra content and just go with this one. Not really sure what to expect from the gameplay but whenever I play it, I'll find out.
Devil May Cry 3 was featured in Retro Gamer's Future Classic feature. They talked about the special edition and while I've never really played the Devil May Cry games, I thought I might be able to get into them. I hear this one is really hard.
As I said in my previous post on Latest Purchases, I bought Tiny Toon Adventures Season One, Vol. 1. I started watching it Friday night and I finished with the first disc. I didn't realize how much I missed this wonderful show. The concept of the Tiny Toons being taught by the older Loony Tunes is great and while there may be a lot of topical humor, it still tickles my funny bone. Best of all, I get a lot of the jokes now that I'm an adult. I do hope Warner Bros. eventually releases seasons 2 and 3.
I owned Mario Kart: Super Circuit years ago but it was stolen. For less than $7, I was able to get a used copy off Amazon and it works great. I'm still making my way through Mario Kart 7 so I'll go back to play this in full. Not every cup has been unlocked yet on this copy.
I've always been a huge fan of platformers and Mario so I had to get New Super Mario Bros. 2. At first, I was going to hold off longer with people saying that the game was something of a let down, but I prefer to try things for myself and see. Besides, I was able to get a discount on it at fye.
At first I couldn't find Kirby's Dream Collection in fye so I went to K-Mart. Wasn't there either. I wondered would stores not have the game in until Sept. 17? Going back to fye, I asked a store clerk if they had the game and they had one copy, which they brought out for me to purchase. I also got this on a discount and there's a bit more on this collection than I thought. I'll have a separate post on this later in the day.
