So today I took another trip to the Super Potato store in Akihabara. This time I spent hours just looking through all the retro gaming goodness they had to offer ^_^ And on the way to the store I took the opportunity to drop by a couple of arcades, like this one:
So here’s a couple of things you could find in the Super Potato store:
Famicom games, 4 shelves (only 2 are in the picture) all organized in alphabetical order.
On the opposite side just as many shelves with Famicom games in original boxes, all in really nice condition.
Super Famicom games, also 4 shelves in alphabetical order.
Super Famicom games in boxes, super nice condition.
Game Boy games! They also had shelves filled with boxed ones, and lots of GBC and GBA games too ^^
Lots and lots of Game & Watch!! ^_^
Nintendo 64’s that looked like new, came with controllers and all cables for like 2000 Yen (about 170 SEK, or 25 USD) o_O
On the first floor they also had a bunch of Sega, everything from 8bit to Dreamcast ^^
On the second floor they had all the PS1, PS2, comics, literature such as walkthroughs and guides, all soundtracks to games and lots more ^^
I really wanted to buy this Super Metroid book, but I had already picked up sooo many games that I had to stop myself somewhere :/
And of course they had all the machines where you can get little game related thingys like straps and keychains, I got some Mario stuff there ^^
On the third floor they had an arcade, and no regular arcade, they only had old games, 8bit and 16bit, like Pacman, Pac-Land, Donkey Kong, Final Fight, Splatterhouse, Ghost n Goblins, Street Fighter, Metal Slug, Space Shooters and lots lots more. I stayed there for a while and tried out most of the games, a japanese guy wanted to play Final Fight with me and we got quite far. It was a lot harder than on the console version O_o They also had this really cool chair made out of Famicom cartridges glued together! I sure hope those games weren’t in working order, otherwise it would be a waste :(
Also Pac-Land was a lot different from the Famicom version which I have previously reviewed here and re-visited here.
Here’s some pictures of the different arcade machines, especially Pac-Land ^^
Ghosts n’ Goblins
Final Fight Game Over :(
