SNES Collector Mystery box


Okay so this really caught my eye in Wal-mart the other day and it spelled BUY ME!! Really loud! Apparently there are others such as the Legend of Zelda and A Metroid version somewhere but unfortunately I failed to get them as the SNES version was all they had left. At least that’s what the associate told me who knows. Anyway, at $30 I told myself why not take a chance although I was skeptical at first because I was a member of Loot crate for the longest time until I was fed up with getting random crap. I knew this wasn’t going to be any different. I was right and wrong at the same time. As I opened the box to my surprise it was of course all Nintendo related products which is the reason i bought it for but at the same time I felt cheated because it was the same stuff you would get from Loot Crate. I don’t know, I feel as though $30 was a bit much for it but then again I am glad I have it.


The Items that came with it are a small tiny backpack that I will give my 2 year old son for daycare, a very small plush pillow that I thought was going to be at least bigger than what it was, NES Coasters which is an awesome Highlight here, a gameboy notepad (comes in pretty handy too), a pin and coin which there is not much to say there. I wonder if every box is different? From what I have heard around these are amazing purchases but for me they are ho hum with a surprise attached. Don’t get me wrong you could argue over and over the ridiculous prices that the items would fetch for, especially the plush pillow. But still for me It is the same old product that Loot Crate gave out just with a different company… Maybe I am wrong and regret not getting the LOZ version….

Nintendo Labo. Is it any good?

NINTENDO LABO is coming out soon and it looks pretty neat! With everything that you can do with it seems like a great idea but Nintendo’s new “innovation” could fall flat. Don’t get me wrong I really like the idea of making my own robot, controller, fishing rod, ECT. But when it comes down to it, the big question is, how many do we need to purchase and with Nintendo, it’s going to be expensive. Personally this is really nothing new. Loot crate has been doing something similar with there books although it’s more like a panarama or mask, the idea is still the same. Never the less I will probably get one or two. For the collection and to use because Nintendo is know for their shortage on certain products.

First blog post

WOW!! Our very first post on my very own website!! This is absolutely great! So lets get down to the reason I am really starting a website, oh ho hum, do I really need to be reading this? No, but if you are still reading, great! I really do not have time to post every video game, movie or really anything to Youtube with school and having kids that keep you on your toes. Making videos is really fun to do but very time consuming… I feel that writing about the awesome adventures I take in the Retro World is a must and wont take days or weeks to do for one video. Yes, I will still make videos but when I have the time and college is kicking my butt right now! So stay tuned for some exciting reviews and raves here on the Modern Retro Corner!!
