    Went to a flea market in Greenwood, Louisiana today, bought a battered and dirty PS4 for $75. The controller's missing the left analog stick cap and the right's looking like it'll come off with little effort. Driving back I stopped at store called 2nd and Charles and bought Song of the Deep, Exist Archive, and School Girl Zombie Hunter (such a great name for a game). Hit a newly opened GameXchange store and got Agents of Mayhem, Stick It To The Man, Axiom Verge, and X-Blades (PS3). Got the system home, plugged it in to the TV, and the console powers on but there's no video. Picked up a wired 3rd party PS4 controller, and it's still glowing like its getting power, but I can't figure out why there's no video signal. It took me a while just to figure out where the power button was (again, this thing is fairly dirty, that button was covered in crud). I don't know how to proceed from here. Any ideas?

    Yesterday I stopped at a GameXchange in Longview, TX and picked up Demon's Souls, Arcania, Adventure Time-Finn & Jake Investigations, Max Payne 3, The Cursed Crusade (all for the PS3), and Text Tiles for the Philips CD-i. There were actually a large amount of Philips CD-i games and things there... a local has been bringing in all sorts of oddities to that store according to the employees. You need a shrinkwrapped 3DO lightgun with Who Shot Johnny Rock and Mad Dog McGee packed in? They had it. Another big box 3DO light gun game the name of which escapes me. Hotel Mario, Link: The Faces of Evil and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon? They have those too. Some local wanted to clear out all the stuff he doesn't play, and got something like $2500 in store credit there. And he apparently goes back in almost weekly with more boxes of rarities.

    I took that PS4 into a console repair place. It seems like the HDMI ports on these are a bit weak and contacts break. I'm still on vacation too, so it's over an hour's drive just to drop it off and another hour or so to pick it up. It'll cost $90 for the repair (that is, if there's nothing else wrong with it). Still, I hope it'll work tomorrow when it's ready. I stopped at a second location of GameXchange in the area and bought Metal Wolf Chaos XD, Has-Been Heroes, and Geometry Wars Dimensions - Evolved for the PS4, and Armored Core For Answer for the PS3. There was a nice Limited Run published rhythm game for the PS4 that I thought I should pick up while I can (the name of which escapes me), but since I suck at rhythm games I decided against it. I'm burning through money a bit quicker than I should be for a vacation week, but if the PS4 is working properly I might pick up a Playstation VR set-up when my paycheck gets direct deposited. The GameXchanges around here have used ones for $119. I'm assuming that'll be without the camera.

    Got the PS4's HDMI port fixed and it works now. Against my better judgement and all my morals, I stopped at a GameStop yesterday. Since I own a current game console, I thought I'd check them out to see if they still suck. And of course they do. But I ended up buying Trine Ultimate Collection, Galak-Z/Skulls of the Shogun for $4.99 each, and Trover Saves The Universe. It doesn't require VR but it can use it, so I'm hoping maybe tomorrow I can go into Shreveport (it's a 40 minute drive from where I'm staying this week) and pick up the PS4 VR helmet. I've been dreaming about a decent VR experience since the early '90s, it's about time the technology has caught up.

    The local Wal-Mart was clearing out a bunch of 3DS titles at rock bottom prices:

    $2.50 Yo Kai Watch (quantity 5)
    $7 Mario Kart 7 (Player's Choice)

    I think I got enough YKW titles for the kids that want to play it but don't have saves on their brother's copy. I might even dip my toes into this to see what it's all about.

    I pulled the trigger on getting a refurb New 2DS XL from Nintendo, which just arrived today. I got to play some Animal Crossing last weekend and had a blast trying to pay off my mortgage and catching up with the residents. With the local price of 2/3DS systems going up ($120 used at my favorite haunt for a New 2DS XL, $70 for a 2DS), I decided to get something that was already fixed up and with a warranty. The 2DS I got from Nintendo was $49 before shipping and my 2DS XL was $99. Now that I had a chance to hold one, I think the D-Pad is going to be easier on my thumb than on my New 3DS. So today I'll be transferring my files and such.

    I also, if Best Buy is to believed, scored the Super Mario Bros. 35th Anniversary Game and Watch from Best Buy. Amazon was out so fast I never got a notification. Best Buy was trickling these out bit by bit to give people a chance to get one. It took about ten minutes but I was able to secure one and pay for it. It's sitting at the store for pick up, which I'll get on my way back from an appointment and a work errand.

    Yesterday I hit a couple GameXChange stores along with the 2nd & Charles store picking up interesting and cheap PS4 games to build up my library, and driving home from my vacation week I stopped at the Marshall, TX location and bought even more. Nearly everything was between $4.99 to $8.99, buy 2 get one free.

    I came home from vacation yesterday. I go into work today only to find out that my boss changed my schedule and I wasn't supposed to work today. Which means I could have taken an extra day of vacation time. That sucks.

    So I headed out and hit a few GameXchange stores and a Movie Trading Company. I really appreciate the indie style games for the PS4, it's not all triple-A developers making lowest common denominator games. And each store has a different selection of games, something else I appreciate.

    Yesterday was payday, so I hit a few Game X Change stores and finally found one that had a Playstation VR set. It was $119.95. But then I also had to get two Move controllers which cost $23 each. Then I needed to get the Rick & Morty: Virtual Rickality game, because I've been wondering about it since it was released. I also came across a remake of Battlezone for VR and a copy of Eagle Flight which looks cool. I only have one charging cable for the Move controllers, so I'm going to have to get one of those cheapo charging cradles with my next paycheck.

    Got a few things, though much at blockbuster prices.

    I swung by a thrift store Saturday as I was getting stuff to make for lunch for the brood. For games they had a very festive complete "Christmas Carol" DS game for $2.50. I also came upon a Samsung Galaxy J3 with charger for $2. That thing looks pert-near flawless. I just had to boot into a "safe mode" to factory reset it as the past owner didn't clear anything and had a swipe code. The local art center where my wife works and is the theater chair for is looking to try and do streaming for shows. I figure I could cobble something together with my phone, this J3, my Sony Handicam and my laptop and use Open Broadcaster Software to make it all happen.

    I did get my Super Mario Bros Game and Watch, which is really cool! No stand, which sucks and I need a charger, but it is slick. Emulation feels spot on and the screen is crisp. It is now leaning on my Realistic Desk Cube at work. Once I get power for it, hopefully I can keep the clock running. I also decided to get a TurboGrafx-16 Mini off Amazon for $78. It was used, but save for a slight dent in the box, you couldn't tell. Seems to work well for what little I got to play on it.

    The local Wal-Mart lowered the price of "The Legend of Zelda: OoT"for the 3DS to $10. I picked up a couple copies for the kids for Christmas.

    oh i was wanting to get a PSVR since they are fairly cheap used now, $120 is better than most places.

    Eventhough its not a real granturismo game you should try sport in VR its interesting
