Recent pickups 10/7 2012
Would you look at that, exactly one month since last time I featured some sweet, sweet loot.
Actually, I have been picking up a lot of stuff these last weeks, debit card or not. 😛
I believe I mentioned sometime earlier that I was looking into re-arranging my room again, and I’ve pretty much been trying to gather things I need for that. But I’ve ran into a bit of a “problem” with how I should arrange and connect things with the gaming systems, so I’ll have to think about that some more.
In the meantime, I’ve been focusing on the computer area. I was thinking of maybe moving the PS3 & XB360 there because it would mean easy access to an internet connection and less cables across the room.
That requires a decent sized screen and a way for both the PS3/360 & PC to make use of the same speaker system. Right now, I’m hunting stereo speakers.
But! I have no pictures of all this. Instead, I will update when things start to move along. However, I do have this:
I finally got a hold of a copy of Video Essentials on LD. This will hopefully be useful in testing the comb filter in the TV, scaler and DVD recorder. Also on LD is the movie Under Siege, which I hadn’t watched until now. There’s too many 80s/90s movies that I haven’t seen before and the reason I picked up this one was because I loved the title theme when I came across it on youtube. lol 😀
Also picked up one part of the soundtrack for the Patlabor TV-series, MGS: Peace Walker and also a new mouse to play around with. Haven’t tried the Scope Node yet, but I always thought it looked really cool.
Also I bought a whole bunch of game-related flyers:
These were all bought from the trading section on the System 11 Shmup community forums and are in really nice condition. There is still a whole lot of them left as I’m typing this.
…Yes, that Yuna-flyer, I know what you’re thinking. It folds out into a nice poster tho’, so it’s okay! 😛
And…I guess that’s all for now. Hopefully I’ll be able to find some nice, small speakers and fix a few other loose ends soon.
I’ll see you then.
