Alright so this past month my wife and I moved into our first home. As you might guess this means that March was super-busy, and I really didn't have much time (or disposable income) for collecting. But I did manage to pick up some stuff actually. Let's take a look...

First up was a couple of found surprises. The Sonic comic my wife found while packing. I guess she got it free a few years ago when we went to a video game store on Comic Book day. The Game Gear was mine from childhood and my parents happened to find it in their basement. It works and even has Sonic 2 inside it, though the speaker no longer works. Oh well.

I finally decided to use some Barnes & Noble gift cards I received for Christmas. These are two of the items I purchased. The PSO guide was huge for me as I've been so absorbed in that game lately. Sadly the poster wasn't included in it. The Sega Dreamcast Official Games Guide is a cool book that has tips and tricks for various games.

I also used up some eStarland credit I had been sitting on since before the move. Capcom Vs. SNK has been one of my go-to games this month, and I'm so excited to finally have Grandia II.

Also from eStarland credit was these two complete Neo Geo Pocket Color games. I know NGPC isn't technically Sega, but I consider it the Dreamcast's little sister seeing as how it had connectivity with the console.

While moving I also boxed up a lot of random video game junk I didn't need and finally brought it to my local shop to trade in for credit. So I scored some common Dreamcast games along with Virtua-On which I've actually never seen in the wild before.

...and also got this CIB Make My Video: Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch. an awesome Blue Mary figurine!

So yeah, all in all a pretty good month and not a dollar of my own money spent on any of it. And really the best addition to my collection this month was that I finally have my own dedicated game room!

Damn, that Blue Mary's gonna have some hellacious back problems later in life.
Nice grabs man and that is awesome you have your own dedicated room.  I will be honest I live by my self and my living room is pretty much a giant man cave of gaming.  But at some point in my life I am either going to rent a 2 bedroom house or a apartment so I can make a gaming specific room.  As much as I love my living room completly game decked out it is not to impressive with the ladies lol.
Great finds. No sound on the Game Gear is a common problem that is typically fixed by swapping out the capacitors. If you're into that type of thing. Some good instructional videos on YouTube.
