I found the "Super Mini SFC" at VV for $39.99 the other day. My 20% coupon brought it down to $36 after tax. I know it's a total knockoff, but RBI baseball plays just fine and that's what I really wanted.

Got this for 2 bucks at a Goodwill. Might not seem like a big deal but if you're willing to do a little extra work this game can easily be sold for at least 20 bucks.

Got it two weeks ago; and maybe not at a super good price - and I already have the game - but this one was a little special and a little cool that I thought I needed to have it!

Back in the 1990s goodies were a thing in video games! When you bought those crazy expensive games instead of a pirated copy you got a box, a manual - and sometimes something cool such as stickers, posters, books - or in this case a pin. Some Microprose games during their "Summer surprise" campaign also contained sunglasses, and either this game didn't contain them, or they are lost - all I got was the pin, which is pretty big and quite nice actually.

So I thought it was a cool thing to have! I really enjoy the 80s and 90s games with physical goodies.

And speaking of goodies in old games; Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded also contained a goodie to honour those good old times, so my physical copy have the official condom - and to honour Larry I didn't use it but kept it sealed...

One day I should maybe make a geeklist about video game goodies...

My cousin gave me a bunch of Xbox and Xbox 360 games - actually he gave them to me in December some time but I forgot to pack them into my back so he gave them to me once again in late February.

The three Xbox games were something that I now look forward to play (after I've played XIII that I have borrowed from him to test his Xbox 360 Halo 3 Special Edition once I finished repairing it - but that he then gave me instead). And all four should be playable on my Xbox 360s as I have an original HDD.

This game looks quite cool, so I look forward to sit down and play it!

Second game was Vexx - and this I might play this year (maybe even before XIII). It looks kind of cute actually.

So far I have actually had an (six) Xboxes (360 and One) with out a single Halo game... Now I have the first Halo game for the original Xbox which is the only of the consoles that I do not own.

I've played some Halo games (don't ask me which as I do not know) with my cousin and my brother-in-law on there Xbox Ones, and maybe tried the original once a long time ago on a friend's Xbox, although I am not sure.

Now I can give it a try on my Xbox 360...

That was the three games for the Xbox - but I also got three games for the Xbox 360; starting with Shadowrun since this is actually the one of the three that I am most interested in: It looks like a decent game and I don't already own it.

I have no idea when it will be played (maybe this year), but it will be played!

This is not a game I would usually play - therefore I most likely wouldn't have it if I didn't get it from my cousin: I might give it a try, but I don't know how much I will enjoy playing it.

Now last of the three Xbox 360 games is a game that I already have - twice - for Windows (as Game of the Year Editions) - and my old semi-gamer laptop (Lenovo Y700) should be able to run it - but I also just recently upgraded my HP Elite 800 G1 SFF desktop with a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (had to be a low-profile card due to the Small Form Factor) and 32 GB RAM, and this will surely chew the game fine... so I am not sure if I will be playing this on the Xbox 360...
(Which reminds me that I need to play some of my Batman games...)

Now my cousin also gave me a Cooler Master Elite 344 mATX tower which I may use to refit my HP Elite 800 G1 inside to get a more powerful PSU (and thereby also a better GPU) - and most importantly more airflow in the case since I have to run it "cabriolet" to play Far Cry 5: The game play well enough, but the GPU gets so hot and the computer can't get the air out and then the computer shuts down if the case is closed, but if I open it up, the air comes out.

(I did have the perverted idea of installing the mobo in a Lenovo ThinkCentre A61 case that I have laying around - but decided not to as although my monitors are HP and it would be fun to have the HP logo when booting in a competitor's case, I actually like Lenovo, so... Had it been a Dell case I would have done it!)

Ideally a new and more modern mobo and CPU - and maybe GPU as well, and then install what I can of RAM and so from my current Linux desktop (HP EliteDesk 8100) with and install the GPU and run a nice Linux machine, and retire the 8100 with whatever is left; they still fetch a fair price.

I got myself some free education Friday night. Listed as "eMac, Good. Free" - no specs or anything, but, it's a computer I didn't have so I went to pick it up.

Apart from some scruffs it does indeed look good. It had been upgraded to 768 MB of DDR RAM, and I know that I have a 512 MB stick laying around to make it 1 GB.

Sadly it freezes up and it is too old to have a build in diagnostics tool. But i read a few troubleshoots and though I didn't noticed when installing the RAM (I also didn't look for it), I checked and saw now that the two caps under the user service latch have two blown (bulged) caps. I will need to spend one of my days off next week to probably wash the windows in the apartment building, but one day will also be used on dismantling the eMac and finding out which caps are blown and what types they are. Most likely going to recap the entire board.
Changing the PRAM battery at the same time; it's dead, so is removed.

It is really awesome with a flat CRT screen instead of a curved; The image is really nice and I could see myself playing around with this PowerPC G4 (1.25 GHz if I remember correct, the cat is laying on my arm right now so I can't get my notes...), mainly because I can't upgrade my iLamp G4 since I do not have the correct type of RAM at home (SD-RAM - one desktop and one laptop module), which also only have 700 MHz. The G5 would be my prefered Mac to play on althought I do have both the Macintosh SE, Macintosh SE/30 and my friend's iBook - but the PowerPC models can play Connections, and I believe that moth my SimSafari and Mistænkt runs on the PowerPC platform and can't run on an Intel Mac. So three generations of Macintosh in the house (each in various models); 68k, PPC and Intel.

Found on my local FB buy/sell page, all for $300 total:

Nintendo Switch with attached screen protector and Mario Odyssey skins for the handheld and the dock (but missing 1 Joycon strap, unless the seller finds it and replies back to me);
Carrying case;
Breath of the Wild;
Splatoon 2;
MarioKart (forget what number it is but it’s the Switch version);
Foragers;
Mario and Luigi Joycon holder controllers;
Joycon wheel accessory;
an Amiibo that I believe goes with BotW;
blue Joycon covers;
paw print joystick covers;
and another extra controller that I think doesn’t need a Joycon in it? It’s white with red accents, I need to look up what it is exactly.
