[Picks of the Month] September 2017

Hello guys,

Here’s the first entry of this new “column”, a resume of what I bought last month.

In the picture you can see games, guides, magazines and stuff related to video games I’ve bought online, or in thrift shops or swapped. Sometimes I have a lot of things to write about (if I want to keep all my columns alive) and it’s very common that I publish a post about something I’ve bought weeks after I actually did it. Now with this resume you (and I) can keep everything updated; of course there will be still room for the ususal RetroPick column in which I will examine more in depth all the new things I’ve taken.

The biggest new entries this month are, as always NES games, especially three of them: Shadow Warriors, the european version of Ninja Gaiden, Probotector, the european version of Contra and the great Ghosts ‘n Goblins. I’ve played some ol these games for the first time on the NES Mini and now finally I can prove my skills on the real original cartridge 🙂

Regarding Ghosts ‘n Goblins I made a great combo this month because I’ve bought also the SNES version, super Gholuls ‘n Ghosts. I was looking bor both of the games since I started to collect so I’m super happy to have found them at a reasonable price.

Talking about combos I made another one-two with the Speccy version of Shadow Warriors which I paid almost nothing. Would it be the time to start a column about the different versions of the games for different consoles? I’m seriously thinking about it…:)

You can see from the pictures that I’ve also bought a BBC Micro game, Commando. Well this was a mistake. I though it was the C64 game and I noticed too late that it was the wrong one. But that’s not a problem, I’ve paid only 1€ and I know someday I’ll buy a BBC Micro. And I’ll have a game to test it!
