The after-tax-return game haul!
Too much money later, I’m re-welcoming an N64 and some ultra cool games to my collection, including:
• Conker’s Bad Fur Day
• Cruisin USA
• Diddy Kong Racing
• Goldeneye 007
• Jet Force Gemini
• Star Wars Episode I: Racer
• Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater
• Wave Race 64
4 of the games listed above were NOT made by Rare, it’s like they held the market on the 64. I’d have gotten DK64, but I want games that I either remember fondly, look like they might be decent, or are actually fun to play. DK64 does not fit into any of those categories, it’s awful and marked the beginning of the end for Rare. In addition, I grabbed Fester’s Quest and Rolling Thunder for the NES, they were cheap and they’re both pretty decent games.
So I was out trying to run some errands, when I decide to stop by PlayNTrade, forgetting they close at 6 on Sundays. I’m lucky enough to know the guy who’s assistant manager, so he let me in to quickly shop, and there, in the display case for the more expensive older games, sat Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! for NES.
I now own Mike Tyson’s Punch Out!! for NES. Everything’s coming up Milhouse!
