DS
Release Date: November 10th, 2009
Purchased at: Amazon (Online – $4)

While perusing games online this week, I stumbled upon this little game new for just $4. Normally I stay away from rhythm themed DS games because they don’t really compare to the genre on the consoles, but I saw this game was developed by Deep Silver (the folks behind Dead Island and Saints Row, to name a few). DS Star is a rhythm game where you use the turntables to lay down the tunes. Surprisingly, the game was listed as new on Amazon, and I’ve had bad luck with “New” games being so cheap on the site: they are either obviously repackaged, or not new games at all. This one, however, still appears to be sealed in the original factory sealed plastic. Cool!

Wii
Release Date: June 24th, 2008
Purchased at: eBay (Online – $3)

They are all horrible games, but some part of me simply wants to endure the pain and collect all of the Wii’s Myth Makers series. Earlier I was able to pick up a complete, used copy of Orbs of Doom from GameStop for less than a dollar thanks to some discounts. This game is freaking premium comparatively, but it’s been hard to track down used copies of them otherwise. And frankly, I’ll go for most any game under five dollars. Here’s to crappy games!

3DS
Release Date: February 13th, 2015
Purchased at: Target (Sunnyvale, CA – $35)

For the first time ever (Yes, ever) in my gaming life, I got up super early, waited outside of a store for it to open, and was one of the first people to buy The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D. But the game isn’t what I waited outside for: I actually bought the Majora’s Mask New Nintendo 3DS! They had just 10 in stock, so I got up at 5am, waited until they opened, and, along with nine other happy Nintendo fans, scored a limited edition New 3DS. Hooray for my gaming addiction now sapping sleep!

Hello Kitty Seasons CoverHello Kitty Seasons
Wii
Release Date: November 16th, 2010
Purchased at: eBay (Online – $5)

A small lot of games on eBay caught my eye on my feed this week, and, interestingly enough, the biggest draw to me was the Hello Kitty game. Essentially the same concept as Animal Crossing except with the Hello Kitty family of anthropomorphic animals, Hello Kitty Seasons was one of the first appearances of Sanrio’s mascot on the Wii. The game doesn’t look to be all that terrible, and seeing as Laura is a big fan of Animal Crossing (follow her blog on Tumblr!) and also enjoys some Hello Kitty plushies, this game is hers 🙂

Goosebumps Horrorland CoverGoosebumps: Horrorland
Wii
Release Date: October 30th, 2008
Purchased at: eBay (Online – $5)

A few things about this one. When I was growing up, like many kids my age, I was really into the Goosebumps series of books. “Welcome to Horrorland” was actually one of my favorites! Enter Goosebumps: Horrorland for Wii. A collection of Horrorland-themed mini-games, it’s more of a nostalgia trip for me than anything else. The value of the game is above $5, so the price of admission (get it?) was right. But best of all, this game is still sealed! I’ll likely keep it in the packaging for the time being, but I actually do want to check it out to see what it’s even like. Haunted mini-golf seems like my thing, no?

Smackdown vs Raw 2009 CoverSmackdown vs. Raw 2009
Wii
Release Date: November 9th, 2008
Purchased at: eBay (Online – $5)

Sometimes you get a collection of games for a cheap price, and sometimes there are games included that you otherwise have no business buying/playing. WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2009 is one of those games. At least my favorite wrestler when I actually did watch wrestling, Shawn Michaels, is on the cover. So that’s good…

Laters,
