That entire talk about buying figures from eBay is the way the whole retro game scene is going lately.  Good luck trying to haggle with anyone reselling games, especially from the NES/SNES era.

I've been looking for a copy of Metal Storm for NES for quite a while now, and FINALLY came across one at a game convention I go to this year.  The guy was selling it for 120 bucks.  I thought it was bullshit because I remember seeing them for 70-80 a few months back, but it was something I wanted and he was the only dealer out of the dozens there that had it, so I offered him 100 so as not to lowball him.  He said the lowest he would do is 105.  Really?  An extra 5 bucks is that big a deal to you?

Guess it was an omen to wait though, as someone else bought it a day later.  Got some Saturn stuff instead, which is nowhere near cheaper in comparison.

Am I the only one who thinks it's so weird that there's NO music during the story sequence at the beginning and then a short little DING at the Title Screen?

Shit's bizarre yo.

My biggest problem with Gamestop's retro thing is that they don't have photos on the actual product you're buying.

Bitch, if I'm buying a loose cart for 40 bucks and up you'd better have a pretty damn good looking cart and label going on it.  I refuse to buy something I can't evaluate first.

>That shout out to Bad Obsession

I lost it at that part.  Brilliantly funny!

In all seriousness though, your build has turned out amazing.  Simply awesome work man!

Missed the panel, really unfortunate.  I also saw you guys walking around a bit but I was too shy to stop and talk with you and I figured you were busy enough as is.  Hopefully I can see you guys there next year!

I had a question in mind for the panel, so maybe I can ask you guys here instead.  

I know Joe has a penchant for the Ys series, which I do too.  It's my personal favorite RPG series and it was really cool to see a whole episode based around it.

Do you like other Falcom series as well such as Dragon Slayer/Legend of Heroes?  I was also wondering if you had maybe thought of doing a Falcom focused episode in the future.  It'd be nice to see more developer focused videos from you guys.

Keep up the great work!

Funny yous say it's coming back down from 700-800 and around 500.  I was just at Too Many Games this weekend and all the vendors that had them wanted 1000-1200 for just the carts.

Got a good laugh out of that one.


BTW, it was pretty cool seeing you there. Sorry I interrupted you while you were eating lol

EVERYTHING is getting more expensive.

Metal Storm, cart only, used to be like 80 bucks 6 months or so ago.

Now it's around 120.  wtf man.

Not usually a fan of Jim, but he hit the nail on the head with this dilemma.

First world problem for sure, but considering it's all but confirmed Nintendo is well aware of what it's doing in riling up this artificial scarcity to the point that people are scalping these for insane prices and even HIJACK SHIPMENTS OF THESE THINGS is more than enough to kill interest for all but the most hardcore people with plenty of time to kill waiting in ludicrous lines to even have a sliver of a chance getting them.

I waited THREE HOURS in a line of six people at my Gamestop when preorders for wave 4 went live.  All I wanted to order was Ness.  I waited THREE HOURS to order a Ness.  That was the last straw for me.  Luckily I got him without any problems, but I did hear of people having theirs cancelled and whatnot.  I also missed getting a Shulk at retail by mere minutes.  A local Gamestop had a single one, and in the ten minutes I called to confirm that he was there and drive there, he had been sold.  I live in a small town too.  Ended up buying one from a scalper for 40 bucks, and I felt dirty about it...but not having to deal with the stress of looking for one was worth it IMO.

Those two instances are more than enough to turn me off from getting Amiibo for good.  I was aiming to collect them all, but after all this I sold all but the ones I was interested in keeping as decorations for my game room, managed to snag a Splatoon 3 pack on launch day somehow, and am going to preorder a Ganon for my wife when he goes live.  That's it.  at 31 I just don't have the free time or energy for endless hunting anymore.

The way Nintendo is handling this I'll be surprised if their wave of "success" with these keeps on going.  Customers only have so much patience
