Wednesday or Thursday, I mentioned to a coworker that Contra and Castlevania were two glaring omissions in my NES game library. While in G2k Games Friday, I found both of them.

Saturday, I was at the cruise-in and prowling around the various shops on that street and eagerly made my way to TV Memories. While in there, I noticed a large box with $35 written on it. After inspecting the contents, I handed over the gold coins to the shopkeep and purchased the box.

The contents:

Intellivision, Intellivoice, 25 Intellivision games (29 boxes with a few duplicates and one empty one (that was a duplicate anyway)), and the roller controller for a Colecovision. The guy he bought it from said it worked, but he hadn't tested it, so he was letting it all go for cheap. I ran all the way home and plugged it up, having to use the converter box thing for my Atari 2600 to hook it up to the TV. Several minutes later, I had it running. As far as I can tell, the cartridges all need considerable cleaning, which is gonna take time. With my NES game buying, I usually don't get more than 4 or 5 at a time, so cleaning isn't a hassle, but nearly 30 games is almost overwhelming. I may bribe my cousins into doing the cleaning for me, actually. The guy also had a 6 switch Atari 2600, but I had to leave it in favor of getting the Intellivision, as I have a 4 switch 2600 already, but that doesn't mean I won't be back in there Thursday seeing if he still has the Atari.

Friday night, I saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and it rocked. It's the best movie I've seen this year (disclaimer: I have yet to see Inception). I haven't read the comic, so I don't know how well it stuck to canon, but, yes, it's a fun ride, and I'll probably be picking up the comic at some point.
