July - A Painful Month

[ My Video Game Collection ] - [ Previous Month ] - [ Following Month ]

So it's not July and I'm left wondering where the awesome summer weather is, because it's certainly not here yet. A couple weeks of really great sun in May/June surely isn't all I'm getting, is it?

I'm a rock star now:

Anyway, up until a little under a year ago I had perfect dental health. No fillings or nothing like that. Then I was given two by some dentist that really didn't seem like she knew what she was doing. It was pretty obvious she wasn't all that experienced when she had to call in the other dentist from the practise to show her how to operate the equipment while she was giving me a filling.

I switched dentist after that I decided against getting the other two fillings from her that she claimed I needed. Met my new dentist a few days back who seems much better. Downside is that he said the filling I got last time is broken and needs redone. On top of that he thinks I need another two fillings done on the teeth above, which aren't the two teeth that my previous dentist wanted to give fillings a year ago.

So on the 9th and something like the 13th I'll be off to the dentist to let him mutilate my teeth. I don't mind getting it done. It doesn't bother me but the only discomfort I can recall from last time was the aesthetic injection. Injections don't bother me, but the location they stick the needle for these fillings is awkward. They inject you where the top and bottom jaw joins and you can feel the needle moving about in there. It's really strange.

It's cool though because I have more than enough games arriving in the mail this month to make up for it. If I remember rightly, there's 13 of them mainly for the Master System. 9 Master System games, 3 PS2 games and an Xbox 360 game. There might possibly be another two coming. Jercurpac offered to mail me a couple Master System games that he found, which is cool. I guess that just really comes down to the price of shipping. No idea how much that'll be and I think I get given a customs fee when/if they arrive here.

My PSP has been given some life again for the first time in a while. I've been playing Star Ocean: The First Departure and I love it. Such a great game and it's looking like the start of a series that I'm really going to love. I already own the next two games in the series so I'll be moving onto them soon after. Fantastic Sci-Fi RPG series.

One of the PS2 games that I'm waiting to arrive is Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King. It's meant to be a pretty lengthy game and one of the best games to be released on the PS2. Thankfully I managed to find a copy on eBay that was being sold with the official Piggyback strategy guide at a reasonable price. Piggyback guides are really well done from the previous one I've used and it's always worth picking them up for older games if you find them at a reasonable price. In many places you'll see them listed at ridiculous prices.

All these new games meant I had to find a place to store them, because the bookcase I recently started using was already pretty full. I pretty much just removed the few sports titles that I have to make some room for the new arrivals and cleared the books/comics I had on the bottom shelf to house PC games and loose/spare copies. As much as I like having my games on display like this, it is a bit of a pain in the ass when I get new games.

A Treecko figure *_*

Lol. This is going to sound like a lame excuse, but it's not mine. My brother was getting stuff cleared out his room recently, I went to see if there was anything worth salvaging. Saw that and figured it might look cool on my shelf but then I didn't want it obstructing things so it got a space on the bottom.

But thank you for that, because I didn't even know which Pokemon it was. Silver was pretty much where I left Pokemon.

Good God, you have a lotta games? You ever count them all?

546 right now. Soon to be 547.

Regularly updated list: backloggery.com/deannewgrounds

thats a great collection

Thanks :)

That's pretty great. Game collections always look so much nicer when they're organized.

I'm subbed to some people on YouTube who can literally cover the walls of their rooms with shelves and completely fill them up with games. I wont rest until I can do the same!

if you ever get a girlfriend i hope you don't show her that gay shit, she will run for the hills

When the ladies come into my room, the first thing they say to me is "Good god Dean, you have a massive... game collection!"

:(

Treeko Figu- dammit, Asandir!

Still, pretty impressive collection of games; now if only I could actually read some of the titles...

Full list of my games is available here:

Now thats more than gaming.

I'm building up a massive collection so that when I hit retirement age I have enough games to last me until my death.

By Azura are those floppy disks

Yup. There's a fair amount of them. Those are all games/software for my Atari ST

You should consider getting some more figures.

It's more expense and I don't really have space for them. I don't think them sitting in front of games. That Pokemon figure is only there because it was going to be binned and I thought I'd save it.

Maybe when I have my own place with a dedicated game room I'll try to fill it with figures and other memorabilia.

But think how sexy Rayman would look standing proudly at the opposite side of the shelf. Not sure if such a figure even exists but still.

Searched "Rayman figure" on eBay and all I got were those retarded rabbits from the Rayman games that I refuse to play. Rayman figure would be cool though.

Holy Crap though its so many games!

Most of them are games that I picked up when the systems were current gen and I just never sold them. More recently though I've started collecting games from all eras that I think will be fun to play.

Meh I have fillings I keep having to go back for because theyre too lazy to get them all done in one or two trips and they tell me I need wisdom teeth removed which they don't do there.

That sucks. I managed to get mine done in two trips and these were done a lot better than my last dentists attempt. I still don't even have wisdom teeth.
