    While I wait and decide on what SNES flashcart I want to buy, I ordered some cheapo repo carts for some ganes to play in the meantime. Grabbed Chrono Trigger, ALttP, FF3/6, and Earthbound, all for a total of ~$50. Repo carts, sure, but they'll work just as well and I'm not paying $300 for them all.

    And $200, which is a silly price IMO. The fact it doesn't support SA-1 games (yet) is a pretty heavy blow, I could buy the Super EverDrive with DSP chip support and Super Mario RPG for less (which is, tbh, the only SA-1 game I want to play).

    Chrono Trigger and Earthbound I bought off a friend who had a few of copies of each for $20, but FF3/ALttP I got from this seller on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/ClassicGameEmporium?ref=s2-header-shopname

    Basic reproductions with no boxes and manuals and such, but for $15 each you can't complain. Got a lot of decent reviews, so I figured I'd at least get these, and perhaps grab the originals at a later date when I have a ton of extra money to spend.

    Just got a pro wireless controller for my switch. I’d post a picture, but they are all the same. It feels great in between my hands. The shoulder buttons aren’t in the perfect spot. They are a bit off and I need to point my finger upwards, or downwards to hit them. I’ll have to try to use my middle fingers, that might feel better. Definitely better that the joycons.

    Bought a few things while the temp was RIP.

    First, Super Mario RPG for the SNES cuz I like that game a lot.

    Second, some gamebit screwdrivers so I can take my SNES apart and de-yellow it at some point.

    And thirdly, I won 2 auctions for some Kindles. 1 was a Kindle Paperwhite (5th gen I believe) for $50, and the other just a Kindle Touch (no idea how old) for $10. Paperwhite is for me while I read at night, and the regular Kindle for my fiancee so she can read during the day and such. Mainly got them because I'm kinda tired of using my Shield Tablet as an e-reader, and I'm looking for something a bit more "portable" that I don't have to worry about breaking/being stolen when I'm out and about.

    I ordered me a new gaming desktop!

    A Dell System 325P! Top of the line PC! It has:
    A 386 running at 25mhz
    5120kb total of RAM
    5.25" Floppy drive
    And an integrated WD VGA chip!

    I also bought a 486 that I'm going to put in it, and I've got an IDE to SD card adapter I'm going to use for the HDD. At some point I'm going to replace that 5.25" drive with a 3.5" drive, put 16MB of RAM in it, and then get a Sound Blaster 16 for it. I might add a separate VGA card as well, but for now the integrated card is going to be just fine for what I plan on doing with it.
