Awesome news for Pokemon fans: I (Claire) am making James play Pokemon Yellow. See, he missed out on the Pokemon craze when it first swept through the English speaking world. He was a couple of years too old for it. But finally, perhaps through my nagging, or through meme saturation, or through the fact that I got a Pokemon pyjama shirt the other day, I convinced him to play!
He’s been regaling our facebook friends with tales of his journeys:
I’ve been feeling very nostalgic about games for a little while. Currently I’m playing Final Fantasy IX (maybe I’ll write a little bit about that soon 🙂 ) and the other day I went to the best little store I never knew about before… it’s called Vinyl Destination, and it’s in Birkenhead, Auckland. If you’re in town, you should definitely drop by. It’s like getting into a time machine back to the ’90s. We came away with House of M and World War Hulk for $10 and $6 respectively (a total steal!) and the Star Trek TNG VHS game!!! We’ll have to let you know what it’s like after we’ve played it. But seriously, this store had old segas in it, MAD magazines, it was just awesome!
So what are you nostalgic for? And are you able to play it still, or is it impossible to find now?
