Reason #5432454 Proving Kat Is The Best
Kat and I found a vintage gaming store in town today, and one of the owners told Kat that he’d be interested in trading some of her Manga for a Sega Genesis.
We quickly came home and put together a bunch of Kat’s old Manga and DVD’s that we’ll likely never watch. She said she wanted to do something nice for me, and this is just another reason why she’s the best partner in the world.
We almost traded for a 16-Bit Genesis, but I knew that our TV didn’t have old-school hookups, and I knew it’d be a pain in the ass to get the thing working because of that. The dude pulled this thing out and I noticed that it just had the standard AV cords. Bingo. This will work.
He told us it was pre-loaded with 50 games and that it’d play any standard Genesis game you could find. I knew it was a pretty good deal because I’ve seen this same thing at Urban Outfitters for over $80.00. Plus, 50 games?! Why the fuck not?!
Turns out that 45 of the 50 games are absolutely terrible. I’m considering making a video series reviewing every single game on it just for shits and giggles.
And now I have a new thing to play around with, and a new thing to collect when I find Genesis games on the cheap. I’m really stoked on the whole thing, really. It’s so tiny and awesome. The pre-loaded games are mostly god-awful, sure, but that was just the icing on the cake anyway. Plus, maybe it’ll turn into an interesting miniseries.
She’s seriously the best human. It’s ridiculous.
