Game Day Haul: From Left to Right: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, and Godzilla (2014).

Picked up three pre-owned games today–Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, and Godzilla [2014]–for a really good price.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (2015) | Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End (2016)

I’ve been meaning to pick up Uncharted for awhile.  Well, in truth, ever since I saw this extended trailer in Data Blitz Greenbelt 1.

Here is that very same video.

Yep.  The Fam and I ended up staying from 11 am till closing.[i]  Even I can’t believe it myself.

It was loads of fun.  Lots to see. But we were all dead tired by the end of it all.

A fun and fulfilling kind of tired.

The Sights

Despite only occupying what seemed like a very generous 3/4 of the Megatrade Hall 3, there seemed to be a little something for everyone.  Character beanies and dinosaurs aside, what stood out for me was the amount of Godzilla merchandise spread out among the vendors.  There was a ton and I’m sure they have been around, but for me, it was like they all appeared out of nowhere.
