Japan shopping report, 2K10 edition! I didn’t buy as much big-ticket stuff this year as I did last year, but I did pick up enough interesting things to put up a totally self-indulgent post about.
1. Slime plush and Rockmanjuu: I picked these up at TGS. I walked into the show fully aware that I was going to walk out with some kind of toy Slime, and the Rockmanjuu were one of the cheapest, but most impressive Mega Man items available. I was going to justify the cost even further by eating them for lunch, but Jeremy Parish warned me against eating them. I may still do a Tiny Review!
2. Minna de Spelunker stickers: Super cheap! How has buying Spelunker junk become a tradition?
3. Phantasy Star Zero HUmarl figure: these were 100 yen from a machine in Yodobashi Camera, I think. I got one for me and one for Eric (still be-egged).
4. Famicom games! I didn’t have any particular wants on my list, but I saw neat games in Super Potato’s clearance area. Tetris, in box, was just 50 yen! The other game is Downtown Special: Kunio-kun no Jidaigeki Dayo Zenin Shuugo, also known as that one where Kunio’s a samurai.
5. Game Center CX 2: The bottom dropped out on prices for this game, so I was able to pick one up for Eric.
6. Syrupy Slime beverage: For relaxing Slimes, make it Suntory Slime. I have yet to drink this.
7. Famicase poster: I totally could have bought everything in Meteor, but that’s way dangerous considering how many King of Games shirts were in there. I limited myself to just two of these (again, one for Eric).
8. Space Invaders Eco Bag: these were on sale in the Taito Station in Shinjuku. I ended up having to use it when my suitcase was 5 kilograms over the weight limit at the airport.

Space Invaders came out in 1978, six years after Pong. That means this Space Invaders clock uses newer technology, right? Nope, it’s the same hardware as the Adafruit Pong Clock with some updated firmware. Still, as you can see after the break, the effect is pretty nice. Pong was cool, but having a clock that scrolls through several classic games would be cooler.
Hunting Space Invaders! Love it. From behance.net.
If this was a real life duck hunt I would have been much happier.(via baravettski, gorg)
