Another Impulse Purchase: R.O.B.

Oh, eBay.  You tempted me again, and I succumbed to that temptation.

But it is one of my favorite Smash Bros....

This is why I'm so glad I'm (mostly) immune to nostalgia. I already spend too much money on DVDs, video games and movie/game books of all kinds as well as (mostly actually) Transformers toys that adding nostalgia would literally bankrupt me.

As for your new acquisition, I hope it's at least in good condition :)
Current project that are on hold because job burnout :
-Drill Dozer (GBA)
-Sonic 3D Blast (Genesis)
-Naya's Quest (PC)

Well, I finally confirmed that it is indeed in working condition.  Apparently ROB (and the Zapper) don't work on my six-year-old TV.  I think it's a rear projection one or whatever.  Seems to like the good ol' CRT-types (which were more common in the NES days), of which I still have an old Sony.

The gameplay in Gyromite is kinda, well, not that great.  But it was fun for a bit, and now he sits on top of my main TV, with the First4Figures Samus Aran (Varia Suit) statue shooting at him and a plush Kirby sitting on his head.  Now I just need one more character to have a 4-player Smash Bros. brawl up there.  Well, I have a plush Mario my mom got me, but it's an unofficial Mario so I don't think he belongs.

Oh, and...
