    Purchased The Walking Dead game by Activision just to play it. I may be starting my own lets play, so maybe this is what I will be playing first, not sure.

    I purchased Assassins Creed Lineage HD for the 360 as well as Farcry Classic for the 360. Both were on sale by Ubisoft, so I jumped at them. 

     

    Lineage is a glitchy mess at times though. Oh and I also bought some food last night.

    Just got a new chair from a yard sale. It's just a computer chair, but one of those smaller but really comfy ones. Got it for $5, worth it!

    I purchased a nerdblock, which is like a loot crate but more expensive (because it's from Canada, didn't know when I purchased). Anyways I got the arcade block with comes with gaming swag, and a t-shirt. I think it's mainly worth it for the shirt, if it's good that is. This month will have Assassin's Creed or assassin style swag, so I can't wait to get it. Oh it costed me around $30 for it.

    after not using my Wii more than an hour or so total over the last three years, I got some sort of Nintendo bug and have dropped about $80 on the sucker in the last couple weeks

     

    as some background, I got a free hand me down projector (~2002 model or so) that does 1024 x 768... far from HD, but still, free is free... grabbed a mount and screen on Amazon for about $125, and after a weekend of tweaking, I was golden...

     

    last Friday (payday) I added $30 to my Wii account and snagged Chrono Trigger, Super Metroid, Link to the Past, and Final Fantasy 3 (or VI for sticklers) for the SNES... today after work I grabbed the Metroid Prime Trilogy from GameStop (had a coupon, sue me)... it is goddamn glorious...

     

    at about midnight Friday night I was drinking a beer playing FF3 and thought to myself "you know what, 14 year old you would be pretty stoked about this right now"... I played FF3 on my SNES in our basement growing up, on a 13-15" TV; seeing it at effectively like 115" is mind boggling...

     

    tl;dr - get a man cave and a projector

    Good gravy, that sounds glorious. There are a good number of classics from the 16-bit era that I want to get on the PS3 and Wii/Wii U. Ideally, I want to set everything up with snacks and ideal seating, ditch the phone, and spend a long night immersed in the gaming era I grew up in. Oh, simpler times.

    Not going to lie, it is. 


     


    The amount of gaming time I get leads me to beleive I have a low chance of ever beating these games again anytime soon, but its good to have them.  You know, for family archives and such.


     


    Here is a picture of the setup. Dusty, unused exercise bike on the left for scale.

    That looks like a "retro movie theater."

    My 8 year old totally backward compatible 60Gb PS3 bit the dust yesterday. (well actually just the blu-ray laser bit the dust or the entire disc drive-can't tell as of yet.  Main unit still functions.  My son was crying since all of our Skylanders games are on the PS3.)  Just bought the 500Gb PS3 super slim and did the data transfer last night.  I will miss the backward compatibility, but there's a backup PS2 in the basement which should get some play now.

    I got a Acer Aspire E 15 1TB HDD 4GB RAM with an AMD Quad Core Processor. Got this a couple weeks ago for $249.99 or so. I love it though. It can't play a ton of games, but I can play some older games, which rocks!

    3.5 year old loves watching Netflix on it, we use it as a special reward for eating veggies and whatnot


     


    I bought a BC PS3 back in 2008 or whatever, and got the YLOD in 2010 or so and swapped it for a new (at the time) slim... I always thought I was going to use the BC more, but in reality I never did aside from ~20 minutes of God of War II to confirm it works...
