Gaming Goodness for the geek in all of us!


Shinjuku, Jamie, Sam

Being born in the same small Australian town as Brad Pitt, Jamie has spent much of his life fending off questions about he and Brad's early life as "Mates". Unable to avoid the constant questions and comparisons to Brad, Jamie fled Australia and has found peace in the sleepy Japanese hamlet of Oami. As an English teacher (funny huh!) Jamie has been able to spread the glorious Australian form of English know as "Occa".
A somewhat uneducated brute, Jamie was expelled from the school of life......twice.

Shinjuku, Jamie, Sam
On Sunday, Samantha and I went to check out a store I had been told about by one of my students. I was told it sold a "few" second hand games and cd's. Armed with a well drawn map (thanks Saori!), we traveled 3 stops from Oami on the Togane line to Gumyo. After walking for about 30 mins in sweltering humidity, we came to our destination. 2 large black shops loomed in the distance. From the outside, it looked like one of those stores where you purchase goods aimed at, shall we say, the more mature market. Upon entering the store, I was transported into what can only be called the "Nerd Nirvana". WOW, a few second hand games I was told! What stood before me was a massive collection of second hand games, CD's and Manga. I felt like a kid in a candy store. I didn't know where to start.
I realize that this is not really the type of thing most of you are interested in but please, I beg of you, allow me this one indulgence.
Please enjoy my pictures, or at least pretend to enjoy them.

Note that the second hand DS Lite was 4000 yen more expensive than a new one from places like Yodobashi and Bic camera. The DS Lite is fairly hard to find hence the high used prices.

"Some" Manga!

"Some more" Manga! This was insane. About 2 meters high and 4 rows deep. What if the one you wanted was at the bottom??
