Here's a better pic of my Dreamcast with my vga monitor

Nice pic, Memo!  You've motivated me to show off my dreamcast stuff.  I purchased this box after my original started looking old.  Only drawback was it had creases already in it because of the way it was packaged.  It's just a custom bundle with my SSF2X for matching service game.

Thanks!!!  Probably my favorite Dreamcast game.  This port was only available in Japan, so I didn't even know it existed until around 2007.

Smash gets announced for Switch, local retailer currently doing Switch bundles with select games for a reduced price; perfect timing.

As for the choice of game, I enjoyed the first one :P

April 4th(?)

So, I've purchased seasons 1-3 of Rugrats when Amazon was offering the sets through their MOD (media on demand) program a year or so ago, and was extremely displeased with how they handled season 3.  Disc 5 in that set was really a copy of disc four, but with the disc 5 decals on the front (a very common error that Amazon never addressed properly).  Because of that mishap I've been wary of the MODs from Amazon (though the Are You Afraid of the Dark? sets were handled decently).  Thankfully near the end of last year, Paramount finally started releasing official sets in more professional packaging with better video/audio compression.  Had to get season 3 and 4, since it had a few of my favorite episodes that were supposed to be on the MOD season 3 disc 5 disc.  Only problem with season 4 that I've heard was that a few episodes were replaced on it with season 5 episodes (possibly copyright reasons).  I will be getting season 1 and 2 eventually.

Season 3 and 4:

Got 4 new controllers to add to the collection and I found
a Sega Saturn and my local retro shop for $45 had to get it.

I ordered a Action Replay ram cart and flashed it with Psuedo Saturn Kai
so I can play backups, the console needs new a battery so I can save though.

On Friday I'm ordering a scart cable and a hdmi converter for it cant wait.
Ive been gone for a while due to the Saturn lol.

Woke up to a amazon package. Saturn rgb scart cable,
HDMI converter and an extra controller.

The cable feels cheap as fuck the plastic around
the connector feels like cheap dollar store toy plastic.
It also has some artifacts you can barely see on the
black portions of the game and it creates a little bit
Of noise as well, I guess I should look for a better
Built product.

The converter box is awesome, it has several resolution
settings and does not stretch the image out it keeps the
aspect ratio, its budget so it doesn't have fancy features
like scanlines and shit.  My fav resolution setting is 1280x1024
Its not blurry and not to sharp and pixelated like on full 1080p

The controller is made by old skool and really surprised me
because I like it alot, its a decent replacement to the original
model 2 Saturn pad. The dpad is tight and responsive so are the
buttons, the shoulder buttons aren't on micro switches like
the original but they work fine.

May 2nd

Had to buy the Dark Knight Trilogy to condense my collection down a bit, since this set takes up a little less space.  Plus, it's a much more astheticly pleasing box.  I love the "3D" holo cover, the way the case opens is much nicer and it comes with a BTS book.

And, a bit of a backstory on the LotR Extended Trilogy collection.  I had bought a previous set yesterday from Best Buy, but after opening it up when I got home I found out that two of the sets were damaged.  Fellowship and King had the disc leatlets broken from their hinges, and Fellowship's middle leaflets' disc clasps were broken as well, as the discs kept falling out.  No way was I gonna keep that set.  I had to return it earlier today and got a less broken set in exchange, after the clerk suggested to check the new set to make sure it was all in working order.  I say "less broken" on account the bottom guard that holds the disc leatlets in place in Towers is slightly broke, but nothing too bad.  Now I have the Canadian copy (from 2017) and an American copy ^..^

It's too bad Brook's poster isn't quite right, but other than that these are really high quality.

Ordered a shitton of stuff from Amazon (taxes get, baby):


Board James (episodes 1-27)
Certainly an underdog series from James Rolfe and Mike Matei, also starring Bootsy.  I had downloaded one of my favorite episodes (Mr. Bucket) a long while ago, I'd say around 2011(?), but I now own the whole series and will be deleting it if I'm satisfied with the BD set.  This is the entire series thus far.

Rugrats seasons 1 and 2
Having owned the original set from Amazon's MOD (manufactured on demand) service I was slightly disappointed as the video and audio quality was subpar at best.  Hopefully with Paramount's official releases of season one and two (being happy with the official releases of seasons three and four) I'll be happier with the conversion.

Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers: volume 5
Thoroughly enjoying the series reboot of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers by BOOM!, I'm surly going to enjoy the coming comics and the Shattered Grid mini-series that's in the works (with issue 25 of MMPR being the first part of the Shattered Grid mini-series).  Paper quality in this volume is a downgrade, as it's more comic paper rather than the thicker paper from the previous sets and the Year One hardcover.  Hopefully Year Two hardcover will have the thicker paper.

Rush Hour Trilogy BD
Having seen part 2 some time ago, I wanted to see the full trilogy, but never got around to it, until now.  This set also includes a brand new bonus disc featuring interviews with Jackie and Brett.

I also got some items for my mom, my dogs and my aunt:

June 1st
Been wanting to get my copies of Kingdom Hearts 1.5+2.5 HD Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, but never had the money, or they were never around to get.  Kingdom Hearts III hype spurned this on today, so I snagged them from my local GameStop, which had both copies for $30 each.

Those are co2 bb guns they shoot pretty hard,
i blew out a street light last night because it attracted
a ton of mosquitoes and bugs near the house.
