Last week I made 2 stops to my local game stores and spent a load of cash on a bunch of new retro games for my collection.  Here are the recent additions:

- Mega Man 2
- The Adventures of Bayou Billy
- Ducktales
- Metal Gear
- Super Mario Bros / Duck Hunt
- Firestorm
- Dragon's Lair
- Bartman Meets Radioactive Man

- Superman 64
- Zelda: Ocarina of Time (in original box, box is in poor condition)

- Superman
- Adventure
- Donkey Kong
- Raiders of the Lost Ark

- Memory card with view screen
- Space Channel 5

Genesis (all in case)
- Jurassic Park
- Sonic Spinball
- Sonic the Hegehog 3 (missing manual)
- Spiderman (also called Spiderman vs. The Kingpin)

- Bart vs The Space Mutants

Quite a large haul given it was all purchased in 2 days.  Although, Metal Gear I got for a great deal and almost considered buying their other copy simply to resale for more though I decided against it to let another lucky soul find it.  I may need to run over there again because I think they had TMNT 2 (NES) for around $6 and it usually sells for more than that.  I could have sworn I grabbed it and bought it but my receipt tells me differently.

I also found my copy of Super Mario 3 and added that to my collection.  Unfortunately one of the corners of the label has begun to peel up pretty badly which sucks although it's still a good item for the collection.

In other retro news, this weekend was Easter and while at my grandparents the cousins wanted to play on their NES which was not working.  Me being the retro NES nerd I am, grabbed a screw driver, some Windex, a few toothpicks, and a few cotton swabs and had it up and running under an hour (that includes eating dinner!).  The NES holds the games tighter, has a better connection, and works almost instantly.  I should do THAT for a living!
