After many years of patience and a few paychecks, I finally completed a portion of my collection that was pretty important to me. These games are wildly popular, therefore they are harder to find because no one sells them! Patience and a little luck paid off as I finally own the complete collection of Mega Man games on NES and SNES.
Mortal Kombat has to be one of the best video games of all time. Yesterday I posted about how I got a top score on Ms. Pac-Man. Also in that same arcade was a classic Mortal Kombat machine. I usually see Mortal Kombat 2 or 3, but I never see the first one. So I popped in a quarter and gave it a shot.
Finally, a milestone! Well actually it's not the biggest score out there, but to me, it was quite the accomplishment. This past weekend in Ludington, MI, I visited a pretty cool Retro-Arcade they just opened a little while ago named Quarter Cafe & Retrocade. This weekend, I finally made it onto the board of Top Scores!
If you stick to WGRD.com each week, you will see the weekly Games To Try Before You Die postings. A moment where I take you back in time to when video games came on a cartridge. Sometimes we even do current gen game, depends on how I feel that week. It's been the same usual thing each week, I think it is time for a change.
There are quite a few internet reviewers out there, but one of my favorite that shouldn't be missed it Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw, better known as the voice behind Zero Punctuation. He has covered many games as they come out today, but this time, he goes back to the past.
I have this little App on my phone called Timehop. Basically it's another thing that is attached to my Facebook info that searches through my old post per day and see's what I posted that day years ago. This little picture popped up and brought me back 6 years ago!
There are a lot of games that are considered 'rare' or 'hard to find' out there. There is another game in my collection that I am also quite proud of. I found this one at a local shop here in Grand Rapids named Vidiots, and he had this game at a STEAL of a price. On eBay, this one fetches quite the price.
There is a new reason to never leave your television. For the longest time, I have been waiting for Netflix, Hulu, or whatever to have The Simpsons streaming. It's even gotten to the point where I want to have at least the first 10 seasons on DVD! Now that dream has become a reality, as the legendary Simpson Family will be making it over to the internet via FXX.
