    Another weekend, another hunt for non-childish Nintendo Wii games. I go to GameXchange stores because used titles $7.95 or less are buy one, get one free. And it looks like the majority of the Wii's library are around $3 to $5 there. But I'll drive really far out of my way to hit the stores because there's always one game at each store that none of the others seem to have. Pretty much most stores that sell used Wii games has a title that I've never come across elsewhere. This trip, those type of games were SpeedZone, Spray, Little King's Story, and Haunted House. I remember reading back in the day that Atari were attempting to reboot the classic 2600 game Haunted House for the Wii, I wasn't aware it ever came out until I found a copy this afternoon.

    Altogether, the roster of games are...

    Speed Zone
    Spray
    Alone in the Dark
    Little King's Story
    Overlord - Dark Legend
    De Blob
    The Calling
    Haunted House
    Zack & Wiki - Quest for Barbaros' Treasure

    I haven't been able to satisfy my collector's instinct since it's virtually impossible to find any games in thrift stores and flea markets. Getting a Wii has really ignited that drive in me. It's been a few months since I bought my first functional Wii, and I probably have around 125 games for it. I'm getting to the end of the line for really grown-up games on the system, and will have to start delving more into the more kid-friendly, casual gamer titles. Luckily those are common as hell and are dirt cheap except for first-party titles. I have a fascination with crappy shovelware for the Wii... Ninjabread Man was garbage, but the company that put it out reskinned the levels, put new characters models in it, and put it out as three other games. Talk about balls. I might pick those up just for the horribleness.


    By the way, if anybody in the Dallas area wants a Japanese Saturn console, go to the GameXchange in Mesquite. They've got one, right next to a US version, for $65 if I recall (same as the US console). And next to that is a toploading 3DO (don't remember the price on that one).

    I went to the same video store see if they marked down any more games. They added stickers to some but of course not the ones I really want.

    My daughter talked about not havingbRayman, Raving Rabbids at home, which I thought I left the cooy we had during the divorce and buying my own, but I guess not. So I picked up that title for $2 with the case but no instructions along with Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, also for $2. I'll give my daughter my Rabbids original copy and keep the rental.

    They still have other titles I'm debating on, like Fortune Street and Batman: Bold and the Brave (or whater it's called). The former more for collectibility and the latter for my Batman-fan young step kids.

    I'm debating

    Went to another GameXchange location, and ended up buying an original Xbox. My old one died many years ago (killed by my nephew, who also killed my Xbox 360 - I stopped loaning my brother game consoles after that) and I really wanted to play some of those old games. Plus, a game that only came out on the Nuon, called FreeFall 3050 AD, was graphically upgraded and ported to the Xbox but was cancelled at the 95% complete mark. A guy who has previously programmed for the Xbox got the source code from the developer and finished the game and released it online. I really liked the Nuon game, so I'm going to have to figure out how to modify an Xbox, burn a DVD of the game, and play it.

    I also stopped at a store called Freaks and Geeks in Denton, Texas and bought Fire Ball !! for the 3DO (it's a Japanese import pinball game) and an official version of Tetris for the Palm OS Handspring devices. I didn't know what it was at the time, thinking it was for a sort of educational handheld oddity that I bought in a thrift many years ago. Oh well, another oddity to add to the collection. Both games were $8 each.

    I downloaded it yesterday but have no idea what to do with it. I'm guessing put the folder in the "Games" folder where ripped games normally go?
