More Games and More Figures

Posted by zerofigures on July 23, 2008

So as of June 12th, 2008, I became the proud owner of a brand new, un-bounced, Playstation 3.  As the proud owner of a 360 Elite and being a self proclaimed “gamer”, I decided that June12th was the right day to get my PS3 since I purchased the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle and got a free $100 Walmart gift card.  Woo Hoo!!!

So here I am with MGS4 and no true desire to play it.  I never played any other MGS’s for more than 20 minutes.  Luckily I had pre-purchased Heavenly Sword awaiting the glorious day I got my PS3, the artwork for Heavenly Sword is just so beautiful I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed.  But Once I’m done with those two games what is this system good for?  What am I going to do with it, Watch Blu Ray Movies all day and night?! Ummm,  no thanks.  I for one wanted HD-DVD to win but that another story.

Today I became the owner of three Playstation 3 exclusives.  Warhawk, Resistance: Fall of Man, and Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.  My plan is to only but PS3 exclusive games for my PS3 while games released for both system’s would be purchased on 360.  It may seem a bit stupid but most of my friends have 360’s and if I’m playing online it’s usually on my 360.  Plus I like my achievements and while PS3 will get “Trophies”, I’m not to psyched since its obviously and achievement knock-off.

Today’s news games get add to an already long list of unplayed games (was about 10 and now it’s 13) that’s not even including a couple of PS2 games.  It’s crazy but it’s satisfying to know that when I want to play the games, they are there waiting for me and I won’t have to hunt down a used & Abused copy on eBay or somewhere else.

Am I the only one who does this?  Sure, back in the day when we were young and got a game, we’d run home and tear into it but now I’m a bit more reserved now and have more things to do.  I guess if it were a  new electronic gadget, it’d be a different story but I know the game is mine and not going anywhere.  Another huge problem is the extremely fun replay ability of Halo 3 with friends.  Seems like every other night if not every night, I’m either getting a call or making a call to play Halo 3.  Probably be playing soon, once I’ve taken care of some tasks.  Thanks Microsoft for keeping me from all of my many other games and for supporting Halo 😉

When it comes down to it, it’s all just fun and games anyway.  Right?

In All of the excitement about getting my games, I almost forgot about the largest of today’s packages. My 1/6 Tina from Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, I’ve gotten all of them beginning with Kasumi and will say that the prices have gotten increasingly higher and higher *sigh*.  The new Kokoro is reaching upwards of $90 on some sites, almost 3 times the original price of Kasumi.  These are indeed hard times to be collecting figures but I pray it will get better one day.

Have yet to open anything for pictures so please stay tuned.  From what I can see through the window box, Yoko is a beauty.  I hope Apple is a good read and interesting enough to obtain further volumes.

Inventory

Posted by zerofigures on July 20, 2008

Hello and Welcome to my blog,

If you’ve seen the name NegativeZero on some figure forum or blog, it was probably me, unless it’s someone posing as me.  I am still active in the figure community (not a big shot or anything but I know my way around) with no signs of retiring any time soon.

Ahhhhhh, What better day to start a blog than the present day.  Its’s the first of 3 weekends in which I will be staying indoors and keeping cool.  This isn’t a regular thing when my girlfriend is around, but she’s away on vacation traveling the world.

I get to stay home and save some money (which will likely be spent on figures so can we really call it saving).  But I digress.  While home on the first of 3 weekends I decided to do a figure inventory.  This included me disassembling my tower or boxes (filled with figures) and going through each one and making a list of the Character, Series and Company which issued the figure.  I began this feat yesterday and completed it today.  Took a couple of hours but it was well worth it since there were some figure which I thought I had purchased but hadn’t seen in some time so I wasn’t sure if actually lusting after the figure, I actually obtained it.

My list now let’s me know what lurks in those boxes that take up nearly 20% of my room; A little over 200 PVC figures (not including gashapon and two (yes two) >_< fake Kasumis.  Those were purchased before I knew any better but I now know to buy from trusted retailers only.

I am not just a figure collector, I a big gamer as well.  So I decided to take a video game inventory as well.  This is more difficult since I know some games are well tucked away and can’t be added to the list this weekend.  May be next weekend.

As My first posting, I welcome you and thank you for stopping by.  Pictures, News and reviews will be added once I learn the full workings of blogging.

See you soon!
