I tried making a Spider-Man themed Fashionframe on @playwarframe - I think it turned out ok!

The DS family! I've got the original DS, a DSi (I think), a 3DS, a 3DS XL, and a 2DS, all for your viewing pleasure. Somewhere else, I also have a DS Lite, but the hinge is broken... ๐Ÿ˜ญ
.
Seeing them all laid out like this, I'm surprised I have them all! And this is only one section of my handheld collection! Love it.
.
Seriously, though, the DS brought Nintendo back from a bit of a low - Gameboy Advance sales had slumped, and the Game Cube wasn't doing well, but along came the DS and bam! back on the menu. They always have something up their sleeve...

Super Mario USA for the Nintendo Famicom. This delightfully pink cart has an interesting backstory and an interesting name... In fact, this was released outside of Japan as Super Mario Bros 2!
.
The original SMB2, which was released in Japan, was found to be quite difficult, and a little too similar to the original game. As a result, Nintendo took another game (Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic for the Famicom Disk System) and reworked it as a new SMB title, releasing that as SMB2 outside of Japan. It did so well that it was eventually released in Japan as Super Mario USA.
.
So there you go! That's the story. I am yet to find a copy of the Japanese version of Super Mario Bros 2, but I will keep looking...

The Fallout series is one I want to love, but just can't, for some reason. I generally love Bethesda games - particularly the Elder Scrolls series - but just couldn't get into Fallout 3 or Fallout 4... .
Not for lack of trying.
.
Truth be told, I never learn. I'll probably get Fallout 76 at or near launch as well, expecting something different, and getting much the same. Still - here's hoping.

Woohoo - 300 days of @playwarframe! Almost all of that was consecutive, because this damned game is addictive. Love every minute of it. Why haven't you tried it yet??? (And if you have, keep going - it only gets better!)

This is what I've been working on recently! I started a podcast with a mate of mine, based on our love of Warframe. Currently only available via Anchor, but should be on iTunes and everything else from tomorrow, all going well.
.
Please check it out if you're a fan of @playwarframe - I'd love all the feedback I can get. Should be back to regular insta pics tomorrow!

Sorry guys, been crazy busy recently - travelling in style! Gotta love the Internet, gotta love the Switch, gotta love Hollow Knight!
.
I have been working on something new, though, news coming soon!

Space Channel 5.
.
The end of the '90s and the start of the '00s was an interesting time for games. On the one hand, more power meant some pretty damned impressive games (and the end of the arcade, unfortunately). On the other hand, some developers - particularly those developing for Sega at the time - were thinking well and truly outside of the box.
.
Space Channel 5 is a good example of the latter. This was one of the first great rhythm games (cue awesome examples from people with better memories than me!) - you control a well dressed space reporter in a dance off. You basically have to dance for your lives (because dancing also involves shooting, you see). It's a weird game, but it WORKED. It didn't really review well, but it certainly gained a cult following. I recommend giving it a shot.

Have you ever played either of these games? I sure haven't! When I finally bought my first (original) Xbox a couple of years ago, these came as part of the bundle (along with a couple of other titles). I never got around to giving these games a shot - I'll have to find some time soon!
.
Blinx was originally envisioned to be a potential mascot for Xbox - something to rival Sonic and Mario. However, the games just weren't popular - many considering them too difficult and not enjoyable. As a result, Blinx fell into obscurity... .
That said, the games do seem to have a bit of a cult following among early Xbox fans. Perhaps someday I'll tell my story about my feelings towards the original Xbox at the time of release?

I've loved The Sims for a long, long time. I had the original on the PC, but I don't think it was ...ahem... A legit copy. Either way, it's long gone. My copy of The Sims 2 was purchased, but that, too, is long gone. I did buy this copy of Hot Date for The Sims 2, though, so I'm not sure why they didn't survive together.
.
Later, I got myself The Sims 3, obviously, and my copy of The Sims 4 is digital, but to be honest, I don't get the same enjoyment as I used to... I think this series was in it's prime following the release of number 2...
.
The reason I put these both in the photo is to demonstrate how packaging has changed over the years - the box on the right (which is an expansion, I should add) was the size of virtually all retail PC games back in the '90s. Massive box for a couple of discs. Things eventually slimmed down to the DVD case on the right - but strangely, there are still PC titles that ship in big boxes. Some things never change, I guess... That said, the boxes for PC games these days are generally a little smaller than this big fella.

Part of my Mortal Kombat collection (kollection?) - this was a gift from my wife, who found these using Rakuten online, and had them shipped to us here in Australia. .
As with a lot of Japanese retro goods, these are in excellent condition, and come not only with original booklets and packaging, but the cartridges are also helpfully wrapped in plastic.
.
Japan is actually a great place to collect - if you aren't interested in finding games complete in box, you can find a bargain. And if you are looking for CIB? It's always in perfect condition, having been lovingly cared for over the years, unlike buying games in Australia, where they're likely to have torn booklets that were taped back together, and marker on the case.
.
Love these games, and love these two copies in particular. More on my love for the MK series to come.

I'm out and about in the city tonight, so I have no gaming photos to share! Have a nice pic of Melbourne in the evening instead :)
