    I went way out of town to go to a game store that has usually had good stuff (the only place I can think of that has an Emerson Arcadia 2001 sitting on their console shelf) and bought a couple imports, a Japanese version of Sengoku Basara: Samauri Heroes for the PS3, and a Singapore release of Kamen Rider Climax Fighters for the PS4. And on my previous day off I ended up buying Dragon Quest Heroes II for the PS4.

    My nephew is up in Seattle, and he started sending me photos from a local video game store this afternoon. That inspired me to head out to some game stores too - he's been looking for a couple games, so I thought I'd see if I could find them near me. Didn't find the stuff he wanted, sadly. I picked up a PS3 Rapala fishing game recently, and on the back of the case it says it'll work with a wireless fishing controller that some copies were boxed with. I found the fishing controller, and it turns out there's no USB transceiver to plug into the console and it can't work without it. I tried some generic USB dongles from wireless mice and controllers, they don't work. Well, crap. I did pick up another Rapala fishing game that doesn't need the wireless controller. I went to a GameXchange that had (past tense) a disc-only copy of the PS3 game El Chavo Kart. I couldn't get myself to pay $120 for a game without a case, regardless of how hard to find it is (it was only released in Mexico and Brazil) but since then prices have gone down on rarer PS3 games, so I thought I'd check up and see if it had gotten a little more reasonable. And it was gone. Bummer. All I bought there was the Zone of the Enders: Mars VR game for the PS4. At the place where I bought the fishing controller I bought the Spanish language (still sealed) copy of Invizimals: El Reino Escondido. The fishing controller and game were only $9.99 each. Way of the Samurai 4 is also sealed and came off Amazon.

    I'm now searching for the little USB transceiver for that wireless fishing rod up above, so I decide to go back to that game store in Mesquite, TX called Game Trade that's getting rid of all their video games. Maybe they might have what I'm looking for. I get there, and they've changed the name of the store since my last visit, I guess to distance themselves more from video games. They're called Game Nerdz now. They had a table filled with old gaming junk (mostly Xbox 360 Kinect cameras, power supplies, and cables) marked down to $1 each. All their video games have been condensed down to a couple shelves, mostly sports games. No fishing controller dongle. No PS3 games of interest. I picked up The Town of Light and Killing Floor Double Feature for the PS4. Heading up to the register I noticed behind some Pokemon boxes behind the counter they still had some Limited Run games (they used to be an authorized retailer). Since all PS4 games are now 25% off, I broke down and bought the Beyond A Steel Sky steelbook, Edge of Eternity, and A Hole New World since there's no way I'll ever find them new at that price.

    I was a couple miles away, so I went to a GameXchange nearby and all I found was a Japanese version of Dead Rising 2 that I bought for the heck of it, and at a Half Price Books down the street bought that Cabela's Adventure Camp for the PS3, and a German copy of Das Mystery-Team for the PSP. I think I have one or two other PSP games, and none of them imports, so I had to have it (and it was only $7.99 which made the purchase easier). I've found over time that if I buy a game for a system I don't have, eventually I'll find the system at a decent price down the line. That hasn't always worked (I'm still waiting for a Neo•Geo CD console to play my one game on it that I bought 15 years ago) but I hold out hope.
