Acquisitions of the NES Kind

Posted by JerryTerrifying On Wednesday, August 14, 2013 5 comments

It's not often that I put up a post on the site about shit I got.  I think it's one of the worst types of content proliferating websites that cover older games and especially youtube.  However there is definitely a market for it and from time to time I do make an acquisition that's worth showing off.  As a matter of fact I've only ever turded up the site with one other post detailing junk I got.  It was a special circumstance, Famicom games I received for my 30th birthday which happens to be the same year the Famicom turned 30.  I made an exception.

And again I am making an exception.  Someone I know had a box full of NES carts sitting in their garage that they were getting rid of and knowing how much I love the vidy gams they let me have them.  There are some doubles and and some games I already owned but there are some very nice additions to my collection.

 Yeah yeah yeah Wowu!  Look at all those vidy gams!

There isn't a copy of Friday the 13th in that box but I do already own it.  It is nice to have the box though because at least it looks bad ass.  There are a few doubles in there and several of those games I already own.  Some of the titles I'm glad to have in my collection are Dr Mario, A Boy and His Blob, Zelda II gray cart, Gauntlet II, Smash TV and Air Fortress.  Speaking of Air Fortress why haven't I ever heard of this game before?  I popped it in my Nintendo to give it a test and fucking fell in love.  It's like Metroid lite mixed with a shmup.  It's amazing!

You may have noticed two copies of Gyromite which I quickly cracked open to see if there was a Famicom adapter in there but sadly there wasn't.  You may be asking yourself what my plan is for these doubles.  Right now I'm thinking they'll make a great prize item for a very special project I'm working on.  More on that later

What do you guys think about this type of post?  Do you want more of it?  Should I make VAG a regular feature here on the site?  LEAVE COMMENTS.

Here's a text list of all the games.  Some of these pics are blurry as the dickens or you may not recognize the box art of every NES game ever.

I would like to see some "new shit I got" posts on here. Plus, there is something very satisfying about a Rubbermaid full of NES carts.

I enjoy the VAG segments very much, even been considering sending you a mystery box if it makes it in to your VAG.

I'm always willing to accept what ever you shove into my VAG Justin. ;)

No lube required. Well, not until the first frustratingly painful game you play. :P
