This Just In! ~ Wednesday Happenings and New Arrivals

WeissFight!! Wednesday was a blast, as per usual. This past week we had a great turnout, and many a game of Weiss Schwarz was enjoyed. Also, we’ve also had a lot of excellent merchandise come in as of late that we’re dying to share with you!


Sarah unloading her Weiss Schwarz decks. We play, and give tutorials every Wednesday evening!


Sean warming up with some tabletop gaming before we bust out our Weiss Schwarz decks. Dan (on the left) hosts board game nights every other Thursday evening at our store ~ the next event is set for September 8th! Quintin (photographed in the middle) provides witty commentary.


We’ve been getting a lot of great N64 games in lately, but even still – we can’t keep them in stock! N64 games continue to be the hottest item of the summer for us.


We picked up some excellent after market Famicom systems. They play all of the Japanese NES games, and come built in with 88 games. $39.99 + tax!


Some amazing Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure blind box posters. Each one comes with 2 posters.


Our playmat selection continues to grow. Is there no end!?


Our NES selection is currently pretty bustling, complete with several boxed games!


Sarah building a fortress out of her Weiss Schwarz decks.


We have a large selection of anime mouse pads/desk mats at the moment. ゴ~ゴ~ゴ~


A first for us: we got in some very fancy looking Love Live! watches. Here’s Sarah’s favorite character Hanayo.


We also have Nico-senpai and Maki watches available!


Our trophy case is FILLED TO THE BRIM. I’m particularly fond of MikuDayo and Waver (of Fate/Zero fame).


Recently picked up some boxed XBOX systems. In wonderful condition too!


Adding to our ever growing selection of blind box figures, here’s some adorable finger puppets!


Robotics;Notes and Disgaea join our collection of blind box straps/key chains.


If you don’t get a key chain you like, you can switch it out with a different one from the same set!


Kotobukiya’s Star Wars figures are always very impressive. Here’s a recent version of Jango Fett!


Devil Survivor 2 desk/play mats. I haven’t seen the anime, but we love the games!


Our T-Shirts are currently on sale for 15 dollars a piece (plus tax). Whenever you come into the shop with one of our shirts you get 10% off. OR, where it to PAX this year and show your local game shop pride. <3

Last but not least, the Princess of the Crystal from Mawaru Penguindrum. I mostly posted this for my buddy Jeffrey, because I’m pretty sure he needs it. lol Such a huge/amazing figure!

What’cha Been Playing – Dragon Fantasy

Games with 2D graphics are my favorite and are something that I can talk on and on about. The graphics are charming, simple yet beautiful music, and the large amount of text to read is something I just can’t get enough of. All the details that would go into creating each little area of a castle, forest, and world map leaves me in awe all the time. Games like Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance helped shape the love I have for 2D style games.

When I spied the Dragon Fantasy booth at PAX Prime last year, with it’s 2D graphic style reminiscent of NES era games, I made a point to demo it and talk to the developers. The guys at Muteki Corporation were easily some of the most engaging and happy people at met that year, and were so enthusiastic about their game.

Not long into playing the demo, did my enthusiasm match theirs! Dragon Fantasy is everything I love in RPG’s: a solid graphic style, catchy music, a fun battle system, and clever writing. The main character, Ogden, is a knight to the castle of Wester and well past his prime. He must travel the world to rescue the prince and save the world.

Game play on iOS consists of a d-pad and action button on the screen (which can be turned invisible if desired). Tapping on the screen bring up the status menu where you can change your equipment, cast certain spells, and use items.

Battles are random, and a screen pops up so you can fight one of many cleverly named monsters. As Ogden levels, his repertoire of magic spells grows making it easier to take out baddies. Personally, I have spent a few hours over the course of the game grinding to get Ogden leveled up a bit so I can tear through monsters.

Everything about this game is what I love about RPG’s and I highly recommend it! It’s available on PS3, Vita, iPod/iPhone/iPad, and Android. Pick it up and let me know what you think!

This Just In! ~ Mid-May-Madness! (3DOMG)

I can’t believe we’re already half way through May! Tomorrow is the Richland Uptown’s second annual “Dog Walk”, and also our store’s 2nd ever Weiss Schwarz tournament. It makes me think about that famous painting of the dogs playing poker. I should totally photoshop that with some Weiss cards. xD

For this edition of “This Just In!” we feature a wide variety of new merchandise recently stocked at the store including our first ever 3DO systems! Let’s start with that, shall we?


During our store anniversary party last Saturday, a customer sold us our first ever 3DO systems and games – we acquired both the FZ-1 and FZ-10 model (the latter of which is boxed!). Escape from Monster Manor is AMAZING.


The Fortress up by the register is fully stocked with a variety of amazing Nendoroids and Figma’s from animes like Evangelion to movies like Ironman!


Our first ever papercraft kits are available featuring each main character from the wonderful series K-ON!


EYE OF JUDGMENT CARDS!? Yes. If you’re one of the 5 people who actually had the chance (and appropriate lighting) to play this game, you’ll be happy to see that we now have some in stock.


A rare second wave of Dragon’s Maze Fat Packs. Usually we’re limited to what we initially get during launch. ^_^


Sarah was (understandably) stoked about these Series 1 and Series 2 “My Little Pony” trading cards. We have full boxes available as well for those interested.


The aforementioned Iron Man Nendoroid! Chibi Tony Stark is adorable, and you could technically use this figure with other Nendoroid head pieces. Oh the possibilities!


We’ve recently re-stocked a large selection of used NES games, so be sure to check out the Monster next time you’re in!


I think we’ve tripled our anime over the last 2 months. We have so much that we’re going to have to buy yet another shelf! Nearly over 1000 titles to choose from.

Well anywho, that’s all for “This Just In!”. Until next time, stay tuned to STG.com for details about events revolving around next month’s Cool Desert Nights. Adios for now!
