Upon my return home, the Sega Dude called me up and asked if I wanted to do some shopping therapy at the Retro Game Bros.. I was still hurting from the robbery… so the answer was an emphatic “YES!”. Unfortunately they didn’t have any of the games that were stolen from me so I selected a different game.
There is always tons of uncommon games to choose from and the game I chose to purchase was Darkwing Duck on the NES. After I brought it home I immediately plugged it into my Retron 5 and took flight. The game was not a disappointment, though as is typical with most NES games is very difficult. The controls are steady, the music is fairly good, and the graphics are the most an 8-bit machine can offer… although it is a Capcom game and I would expect nothing less. The game set me back $80 and I’m sure I’ll get enough enjoyment out of it to justify the cost. I’m one step closer to finishing my Capcom collection; though the remaining games are quite expensive: Ducktales 2 being the most costly, however Snow Bros. seems to be increasing in value and is a close 2nd.
So while I’m still mad about the robbery, the trip to the Retro Game Bros. was therapeutic.
