Casio G-Shock DW-6900-1VCT

I bought this watch at Wal-Mart last year when it went on sale.  I had been eyeing it for a while because of how nice it looked.  I just couldn’t believe that such a nice looking watch would be sold in Wal-Mart of all places.  In my opinion this budget friendly no frills watch looked better than most exclusive, limited and especially expensive watches that are released.

Batman Year One Part 1 Issue #404

Released in February 1987 Batman Year One Part 1 issue #404 tells the story of Bruce Wayne’s first year as Batman.  The story also simultaneously follows James Gordon’s return to Gotham City.  It’s such a great story that follows the beginning of the friendship between Jim Gordon and Batman as these men battle a corrupt city.  I just love how their battle is not easy and how they make mistakes along the way; learn from them and overcome obstacles that eventually molds them into the heroic men they become.
I bought this particular issue a few years ago.  At the time a lot of magazines were going out of print.  This had me worried that eventually all print magazines including comics would either go digital or end production.  That’s when I decided to start buying popular comics as collector pieces (relics of the past).  Thankfully the prices were still affordable so I definitely had to get this issue of Batman and others.  While I do love the story and can read it in digital format, there’s definitely something special about holding the physical copy in my hands. The smell of the pages, the ink that runs off my fingers, and the vibrancy of the colors is something special that makes collecting older comics nostalgic and worthwhile.

Advice for getting the SNES Classic Edition in Canada

The SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) mini will release on September 29th for $99.99.  Nintendo has stated that it will be a limited release and will stop production by the end of the year.  While it might seem ridiculous to most that Nintendo is making the SNES mini limited, you have to remember that Nintendo has always made certain items limited since 1985.  As a life-long Nintendo fan this has been frustrating, but I understand it.  Hype Sells.  Also, all these retro games will eventually be sold on the Virtual Console (a service that lets you download retro games onto modern consoles).
