I have made a resolution to a $50/month gaming budget for 2015. Other funding will have to come from selling games. I have too many games that are still sealed. Time to play them or get rid of them…

This is the big one for the month. I was one of the lucky ones :)



Got a shipment from my buddy in Japan. The Amiibo and second copy of Sega 3D Classics are for Mike Mika.



Outrun in 3D is almost worth the cost of the system and game!



I had a $50 gift card for Gamestop and found a brand new opened copy of Xenoblade, figured I should give it a shot



Random games I got for Christmas.



A few cheap eBay pick ups. Star Fox was a great deal at $27



Randomly bought a lot of Dreamcast games from Ebay too for $30.



And a few other pick ups from GameFly, Amazon, and a free book to review.

Here were my favorite pickups from Dec. 2014. My favorite pickups of all of 2014 will come later...


The extremely limited Air Jordan 1 X Fragment Design collaboration brought us the first "remastered" Jordan Brand retro in the silhouette of the shoe that started it all. The quality is amazing. I posted more about it in the SNEAKER GAF thread.


December was chock full of sneaker releases (as it always is), as such... I couldn't resist the "Ultimate Gift of Flight Pack" which featured the coveted "pantone" Air Jordan 11 and a new colorway of the Air Jordan XX9.


Got a new beefy Alienware 13 for travels/work stuff. :)


Happy 20th to one of the greatest brands I know! I was able to get 2! One to use and one to keep in my collection :)


Isn't she lovely?


To compliment the Air Jordan 11 "Legend Blue" release this year, I had to get the matching 1s.


The Air Jordan 11 "Legend Blue" or "Columbias" are my favorite sneaker of all time. In fact I wrote a fairly long post about why earlier this year.


The new PlayStation 4 compatible Ultra Street Fighter IV - Arcade FightStick TE2 signed by Street Fighter executive producer, Yoshinori Ono!


My friend in Taiwan was able to pick this up for me. It's a book that focuses on basketball/sneaker culture in Asia and how it became so huge! I wrote an article on my site that parallels the same ideas if anyone is interested: http://markman23.com/2014/11/28/how-japan-and-the-rest-of-asia-fell-in-love-with-basketball/

I use Picasa Web, others use Photobucket and other sites. You basically upload to those sites and link them here using the image button

Upload them to imgur.com (or another hosting site of your choice), no account required

imgur will generate links you can copy and put in a post that will make your pictures show up. They look like

Is this your way of teasing an earlier ship date for the persona te's? :p

Hello Guys! Happy New Year!

Got a PSTV, Wolfenstein and Ryse!

BTW does someone now if I can transfer PS1 game saves from my Vita MC to the one I'll be using on the PSTV?

Boyfriend picked this up from Best Buy today!


Last one of our wave 2 preorders finally! Only other one from the wave I think we're gonna try to get is Luigi, but other than that we're good til Rosalinapocalypse in a few weeks.

Our little amiibo collection (for now):


(The extra Little Mac I ordered when I didn't think our preorder was going to go through, so we're saving him to hopefully trade with some gaffers from some other amiibos later.)

Actually had trouble finding the Gold's in stock at a store in my area but found some at GameStop today. Went ahead and got the adapter so I can use them for all my gaming needs from now on.

January 2015 gaming & media pickup, got some amazing deals on these.



Did some online shopping today and ordered my first snowboard jacket, been using a ski jacket for past few seasons.

Someone didn't bother to read the OP it seems...

What do you all use to take your photographs? I use my Galaxy S4 but they come out looking crap.

Ebay pickups from last week (still counts right?)

You'll love those DC Animated Movies, I particularly enjoyed Assault on Arkham.

I'm kicking myself for not jumping on this when it was on sale around Thanksgiving, in spite of not having a PS4 at the time. How do you like them so far? I'm in love with the idea of playing games as loud as I want without waking the family but I'm torn about dropping $100 on them.

First up, some vinyl decals for my PS4 controller so it stands out from my secondary one.



I then moved around some posters, and some of my framed comics. Here's one wall (unfinished)



Heres another wall (Camera quality is crap and had to take from weird angle to fit them both in)



Omega Ruby for Christmas



Shelf for all my funkos and other collectibles. Looks small in the picture but its pretty big, bigger than I expected it to be.



Guardians of the Galaxy Zavvi Z Box I bought



And assorted goodies from Christmas. Also received Dragon Age: Inquisition but its not in pic

2014 13" retina (apple refurb)
8GB ram

It's absolutely beautiful, funny how the retina screen looks good in the apple store but its another level once its actually in your own house.

Bought a case and stuff for it but nothings arrived yet.

Finally something I can post! I won a fellowship so I had some extra money / xmas gift to myself. Finally able to upgrade my aging 6yr PC. Playing everything on Ultra/Max feels awesome. First time I've ever been able to do that.

I haven't posted in this threads for a while so most of this stuff is from December.



Australian New 3DS XL. I am totally in love with it, the build quality is fantastic and the 3D is actually usable now.



Lots of fine music






(Yes I like that album a lot...)

Finally a new bag. My old one was slowly falling apart.



And my first pick-up of the year



I gave it a first try today with my iPod Classic and the AKG K701. Love it already.

First post so I thought I'd start with some pick-ups.

Got given these cool nano-blocks as a gift. I enjoyed making them so much I think I'm going to buy some more.



Trying to create a simple networked media centre at home so picked some android boxes for streaming my videos, a Harmony One Ultimate (just always wanted one) and some of the best reviewed active 3d glasses.



Finally it was time to upgrade my home network: the highest spec Netgear Router, an 8-port switch and a wifi adapter to connect my older, non-wireless gear.

Picked up Bayonetta 1 + 2 for the WiiU, should I start with 1? I feel like that's the most sensible thing to do.

Also got these Happy Socks which make me happy (socks)

Someone said that they discontinued the original vita chargers so when i saw one for $5 on clearance at Walmart today I bought one.

I didn't feel it was worth taking a photo, lol.

Going to try to slow down on purchases until April or so when the Midwest Gaming Classic is.

I kind of want a Vita TV but im not sure yet. I wonder if it will get clearanced out at $50 at some point.

I hate the battery life on the ds4. Instead of just buying a longer cable so I don't have to worry about the battery dying, I went and bought another controller.

If you never played 1 then hell yes you should.
