Here are some useful cards I could use. Metal reflect slime can really help defend my life points. There is also a monster called Strong Wind Dragon that could work real well with a dragon deck. Bone Crusher is another card that can help a zombie type deck. One card that can deal a lot of damage to your opponent is Magical Explosion, hmm you can use it as a final attack to finish off your opponent! Well, be sure to check out the other ones! Enjoy!
Some of you know that I have started playing this game again and what a great opportunity to share this hobby than to show my purchases. Of course, these aren't going to be amazing finds like the ones I have with video games but there will be enough to look around to keep you interested especially if you play the Yu-gi-oh! trading card game. Well, this will be one of many posts on this kick ass card game! Lets start!
I won this card in an auction on eBay(you will see lots of my finds from that source). As you can see it's an Ancient Fairy Dragon! Also, if you see a little further it's ultimate rare! I love ultimate rare cards, they always have such intriguing art work that makes the monster come alive! (Wish it did!) Anyways, I paid 2.50 for this card plus the shipping which was another two dollars. I'm not sure if it was a good deal or not but I am happy with the card nonetheless. Until next time!
But enough about old embarrassing memories, the game itself does play in very confusing fashion and it's nowhere similar to the card game so for those of you who know how to play the card game, forget those rules and listen to this. Each monster contains elements which you can combine to give you advantage over other monsters. It's like when a type of monster is stronger than the other one like in Pokemon. You have to fuse your cards together to obtain stronger monsters. You can also use magic cards and trap cards. The rules on this game though only lets you use one card from your hand per turn. That means you can either fuse a bunch of monsters together or use a magic card, or set a trap card. This gives you a lot of headaches especially when you don't know what the effects of some cards are. Believe me, you'll be as clueless as I am.
To conclude, the game is not that long and it'll only take you a short time to master these rules and gather the cards you need to create a real strong deck to defeat the pharaoh. You can also add cards from your deck(From the real early sets) To the game and use them in your duels for a great advantage. I suggest getting a Blue Eyes White Dragon in there. Make sure you duel with style because your duels will be measured according to how good you dueled. Overall, this is a very interesting game to pick up for the trading card aficionado, and one for those who don't care about the card game at all because believe it or not, you don't need to know the rules to play this game. Until next week!
Hello, Famicom Freak here once more with another edition of these wonderful long lasting finds posts. This time around I didn't find much but it was more than enough to be called a successful trip.
It's always a gamble when you purchase these controllers as they state they are sold as is. It already happened to me with a wired xbox 360 controller which I might take apart and see what binds it together and probably find a fix for it. Either way, I picked this controller with another controller for 1.95. For some reason both of these controllers(You'll see the other controller below) Were placed together in the same bag. I picked it up mainly because of the Xbox 360 controller but the other controller remains a mystery.
Here is the other controller. It seems to be wireless for a clone of some sort. The front of the controller says power games which sounds very clonish like. Anyways, it's peculiar that this controller needs three double A batteries to run while the Xbox 360 controller only needs two. Technology amazed me once more.
I also saw this little game in a pile of games. I actually seen this game there since last week and to be honest games don't last on the shelves for long at that thrift store. This looks like a remake of Galaga but with interesting changes all over it. The CD case inside the box is sealed. I think I'll keep it that way.
Finally, I picked up this game for 1.95. I never heard of it or know anything about it but I figure it would be a great addition to my collection.
So that's about it, there should be a lot of interesting things coming in the next couple of weeks. As for me, I need to continue packing. Until next time!
Just wanted to point out that there is an auction on eBay with a copy of Stadium Events but there is not mention if it's the Pal or NTSC so with this wonderful guide you will be able to purchase the right one. I hope this helped some of you who had doubts, for the other collectors, I'm pretty sure you knew about this but I'm just throwing this in for future reference and any doubts whatsoever of this gem of retro gaming.
Here is a pick of the lot with the boxed games. Below are the cart only games.
More games!!! YAY!
AND MORE !!! GOOD OLD GAMING GOODNESS!
I took the liverty to search for nearby Play n Trades in the area as I know there was one in Kendall so I found one only five miles from my NES finding. I headed there and saw a bunch of Pokemon games in a box and just out of curiosity I asked how much? The games were 4.99 each !!! I was like WTF ORGASM!!!!! So I looked around for other stuff to add to my collection and left happy with these additions!
I also picked up a couple of Yugioh games for the Gameboy and the PS1, both complete but with no cards :( I know, it's a long shot but I was ready to have another orgasm if I found the little package with the cards in them. Wouldn't that had made my day perfect? Har har har!
So that should do it, looks like things are looking up for us retro game hunters, until next time!
Enough said, I hope you stop gaining weight you Italian fatso, you are going to kill Yoshi...and the princess is never going to give you some...that reminds me, did you ever got some from her? I doubt it or else we would be playing Mario Jr right about now.
A little late Mario, but I wrote to Merio first, happy birthday.
Here is an Atari 2600 I believe, it looks in great shape but I still need an AC adapter to try it out. I may also need other stuff to make this baby work, but not sure since I'm not an Atari fanatic.
Here are some portable games. Yes, that's two Pokeymon blues (I'm a huge pokemon fan!) There is also a copy of Battletoads and Mega Man 2. Last but not least, there is a very interesting CD of NEXT Generation which was a magazine about PC games and console games back in the 90s(not sure if they are still around today). As it's stated on the label, the disc contains video clips of upcoming games for each of the consoles N64, PS1, and Sega Saturn. It will be interesting looking at them and maybe make copies and if any of these videos are not on youtube, well then I'll be more than glady upload them.
Last but not least, more gameboy games yay horray!! Also, a copy of Ghostbusters for the Genesis and Son of Chuck for the Genesis as well. There is also a jumper pack for the N64 and a Manga of Pokemon Volume 1! WUTT!!!
That's all for now, better things to come for sure!!! Until next time!
To conclude, the game is very entertaining just don't let yourself pick any other team other than Brazil or Germany when you start playing. With enough practice, you can beat the team with the weaker teams like Japan, USA, and even Mexico. Good luck!
