So yesterday I had to go do some stale shit and to cheer myself up I was going to swing past Video Outlet to see if they had a specific Nintendo game. When I rolled up to the spot the damn place was boarded up! I haven't been able to find out when or why they closed and if they've got another location or just straight went out of business. Super stale.
The game I was looking for is Rolling Thunder on the NES. I read an article about the series over at Defunct Games and have wanted to give it a shot ever since. It's not a hard to find game online and can be had for a few cents plus shipping but I kind of want to look around a bit in person first. So far the two places I have looked have either not had or GONE OUT OF BUSINESS. There's still at least three used game shops in the area I can look at but I'll probably just have to break down and order it off amazon.
Checked out the nearest used game store, the one I kind of fucking hate, and they had a copy of Rolling Thunder. That was cool. Checked every other used game shop in the area for Rolling Thunder 2 and couldn't find shit. so I ordered it off amazon. $7 shipped, complete. Awesome. Can't wait for it to show up.
