I spent $85 on MapleStory a few months ago (in 2015) and a disappointment with my increased spending and a likely-temporary lack of interest in the game brought me to quit it again for a little while. We'll see what the upcoming anniversary event patch will have in store. I did spend somewhere around $32 recently on Alpha Sapphire thanks to a surprise gift card from when I purchased Skyward Sword (I believe) YEARS ago that took off $10.

I didn't, actually!

If you have to know, the $4 is Mewtwo and the $60 is something a lot more embarrassing than idols!

Legend of Zelda Adventurers Kit: $20

I've been looking for a new game case that goes better with my ALBW 3DS, ol' Mario kinda clashes. Its surprising the lack of Zelda cases for DS XL's. I was eyeing one on Amazon with an 8 bit Link design but it keeps going out of stock. When it finally seemed Amazon was going to restock the other day checked out Gamestop to see if itd be in store since I wanted to see it in person. Instead I found that they were going to carry a new one next week plus this one. The one coming out next week is a Hylian Shield and looks huge, but this one seemed kinda interesting. While my local Gamestop didnt have it, I found out Friday that Walmart had a tag up for a Zelda DS case and they put out said case yesterday. I get my employee discount there anyways.

Anyways, I love the faux leather design of this case. One thing I couldn't figure out online was the game storage, sadly its a downgrade from my Mario cases. My XL case has eight slots and my original DS's case has three, but this has only two. Also, the styluses, more on those in a sec, dangle down under the front flap so the points stick out. It also comes with a screen cloth that I guess you're supposed to peel off its backing and stick to your DS. You then take it off to clean and stick it back when you're done. Not something I'd personally stick to my system, especially my Zelda 3DS, but the cloth is also a map of Hyrule so it looks cool.

But the real "draw" to me was the styluses. Partucularly, the Master Sword stylus. I'm sorry, but the mere thought of a stylus with an end designed to look like a sword hilt, let alone a particular sword from something I like, gets my interest. Yes, its only got the design on the one side and its about the quality youd expect from the company in question (I have a couple Mario styluses from the same people) but it still looks awesome and I'm so gonna use it. Also, it came with a green stylus with the Hylian Shield on top. Its nice looking and its cool to have the sword and shield set but next to the Master Sword it probably wont see much use.

After two and a half weeks my new game came in. Turns out Walmart.com marked down their preorder offer, got it with the little figurine for ten dollars less than MSRP. Just had to wait extra long for a game they have a ton of stocked on the shelf. But anyways

Pokemon Alpha Sapphire with Primal Kyorge Figurine: $30
