I pop in from time to time, but rarely do forums anymore. I tend to watch a ton of Youtube videos when not working, to scour for the next game for the collection, but even that will be at it's end soon as I have mostly what I want. The rest of the shit has gotten too expensive, and has taken the fun out of the hobby. Over 1,200 games should be satisfying enough.

Weakling.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

Send me free money, and I'll buy more.  ;D

Retro games are only getting more expensive.

Dracula was not always a monster. He was once a man named Mathias Cronqvist. A flawed, conflicted, genius of a man. How did the educated, aristocratic, crusader who piously served the church become a vampire, and eventually the Dark Lord himself, the opposing force to God? From a very young age terrors and tragedy shaped the man into the king of all evil. This is his story.

Long disappeared I'm afraid. Raven Reaper's around, but not doing forums, he's married with a kid last time I talked to him a little while back. But MA is long gone.

Unless that price bubble pops soon, before the PS1 gets swallowed into it as well (the Saturn has already approached that territory, that system is a bitch to collect anything cheap for. Saturn Bomberman I recently just got, the Japanese version for $40, but that's close to the end of the line for that system for me), collecting will become more and more spotty, I only tend to buy twice, maybe 3 times a year now due to how expensive the hobby has become. These damned resellers are taking the fun out of the hobby. These fuckers are not in the game for the fun of collecting, but to disprove the old saying, "you can't make a living off of selling old video games", and they have found a damned way of doing so. Of course, space in my bedroom for more games has gotten pretty slim, wish I had the space for bookshelves, but I'd probably need two good sized ones, or more, but don't have the space for them. To me, that is the ultimate way of organizing games, but not happening.


Not to mention I ordered SVC Chaos PS2 Japanese version, and the seller's warehouse staff goofed and sent me Namco X Capcom, which I promptly sent back for a refund, and the guy may not have an SVC Chaos for me to buy anymore. Not to mention after 2 days I still haven't gotten my refund back to my Ebay gift card back. I read it takes sometimes 3-5 days for that to happen, and when and if it does, I will message that dude to look through his inventory again to see if he still has the copy I ordered, if not I take my business elsewhere when one pops up for the same price or cheaper again (been buying from the guy for years on Ebay, second time in a  year they goof up on an order and send me the wrong thing. Might be my last time buying from him). I have another Ebay store I buy from, several years too, and they have never goofed on an order of mine. Hell I bought Seiken Densetsu 2 SFC (Secret of Mana  as it LOLCHEAPZ), Super Bomberman 4 and 5, and Saturn Bomberman all from this other seller, and everything came in exactly as I had ordered.

Imports are about the only retro games I still buy. Prices on US releases are just stupid. Beyond that, I just buy modern releases. I really like collecting for Vita. I always seem to gravitate toward niche, underdog systems, plus handhelds the last couple gens have offered games that are more reminiscent of old school games than the home consoles. But I'm almost kind of looking forward to Vita being totally done so I can cut back on buying modern releases too. I've got 1600-some games myself, and yeah, it's really more than enough. I don't think I'll ever stop buying the occasional game, but I feel ready to chill out even more so with the accumulating and enjoying what I've already amassed.
