On September 20th, 2015 Nintendo Joe and I hit up the VGCC Video Game Swap in the city of Waterloo and even though I did not come home with a massive bounty it was still a fun adventure.
Nintendo Joe passed on a chance to buy the super rare “Flintstones: Surprise at Dinosaur Peak” for the NES. You can read all about his cop-out here.
As for me; the first game shown below is my favorite score. I actually came pretty close to passing it up. The seller wanted $45 and he would not budge on the price and I didn’t feel like dropping $45 on a single game. However, I had brought with me a Sega Genesis game called Zero Tolerance for trade. It was complete and in good shape but unfortunately not worth a lot of money. I gave it to this seller along with $35 and I got my complete Very Good condition Joe & Mac.
From what I’d seen of Joe & Mac before owning it was that the graphics look very good and the game looks like a typical platformer. When playing it I discovered is it’s pretty hard but fair. I got to the 2nd boss and I noticed that the levels are short. The game feels bit like a boss rush. I spent a lot more time fighting bosses than I did getting through the stage to the boss encounter. I really like Joe & Mac and I’m very happy to have it in the collection.
Next up is Viewpoint. I only recognized the game because I know it’s on the Neo Geo. I didn’t realize that it was ported to the Sega Genesis (which it was). I haven’t tried this one yet but when I do I hope I don’t like it because if I do I know I’ll want the much more expensive Neo Geo MVS version.
Garfield Caught in the Act
When I found Viewpoint the seller also had Garfield Caught in the Act and Williams Arcade’s Greatest Hits. Not exciting but in good shape and inexpensive.
Williams Arcade’s Greatest Hits
Viewpoint was priced at $20, Garfield at $10. I offered $30 for all three games and that’s how it went down. So all in for my four new games I spent $16.25 each plus one Genesis game in trade. That’s a job well done I say 😀
That Garfield looks like a perverted peeping Tom! 😀
Ha! Now that you point it out… yeah he does look a bit pervy. He was always getting into trouble so maybe he just upped his game 😛

I had no idea Viewpoint was brought to the megadrive! And I’ve just checked on youtube, it looks pretty decent!
This pick up alone could have made your day but you managed to found Joe & Mac which feels like arcade at home! This was a good day 🙂
Yeah, I also had a quick look at youtube and Viewpoint does look pretty nice. I was surprised by how smooth the animations look. Although I’ve read there are some slow downs. I’ll try it out soon.
Yeah, because I had company the drive was worth it. Four games and I didn’t spend too much money. Feels good!
