In a thread idea shamelessly stolen primarily from NeoGAF, here's Penny-Arcade's official Pick-Up Thread, the first in a series.

This is the thread where you post what you've picked up recently. Show your gaming/geek cred & pride here.

Over on the GAF they had out bans for posting stock images, and I don't have the power, so all I can do is ask nicely:

Post ACTUAL pictures you've taken yourself! No one cares to see pictures they can find on google images....

In addition, DO NOT CRITICIZE other people's pick ups. This is a friendly thread. No need for insults!


So have fun. Go!

    I picked up Atelier Annie yesterday. This actually meant driving out to the UPS depot in the middle of the suburban wasteland north of Toronto because stupid Amazon.ca decided to suddenly start shipping with UPS instead of Canada Post, and UPS can't deliver to my apartment complex because the buzzers don't work, and they don't understand the concept of, "I live on the ground floor with an outside entrance. The number is on my door. Can you knock on it, perhaps?" Grrrr.

    But ANYWAY, I have Atelier Annie. It is so very Japanese. It is so very Japanese that they subbed it instead of dubbing it, and it is aggressively cute. Part of me wants to say "aww" and part of me wants to go find some moose jerkey and wrap it in a Canadian flag as penance.

    I can already tell it's going to be addictive.

    Aside from also grabbing Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, I also got the Classic Linker N64. I've posted my impressions on it in this thread. Long story short, if you use the Virtual Console or own a Game Boy Player, this is pretty much a must-have.

    I'm happy I decided to pick up GTAIV for 360 despite completing it on PS3 at launch. After giving it about a year and a half to breathe, the hooks are in again deep. Once I'm done with the zerg rush that begin with ME2 and ends with FFXIII/God of War III, I intend to go back and get the DLC that I missed out on.

    Okay okay, so this was technically a December Pick-Up. I threw this neat little Metal Sonic figure into my cart when I ordered some Saints figures and Halo figures for my sister and her husband (respectively). I need to find a place to put him.

    pickup2k.jpg

    And he has good taste in games. (Which was also a December pick-up. Zelda, not the DS. :P)

    pickupi.jpg

    I was going to get the Scott Pilgrim series in one shot from Amazon after so many people pestered me to read it on multiple message boards, but I decided to pick 'em up one at a time from Borders since they have what's almost a weekly 33% coupon these days, which brings the Borders price to what I would pay from Amazon anyway. I've only read the first book so far. It's not terrible but I'm not terribly impressed yet either.

    pickup3.jpg

    I picked these three up from Telltale when they had their after-Christmas 25% off sale. Never played Sam & Max and I've always wanted to, so here goes.

    Oh and I bought three new pairs of shoes on Saturday.

    It's generally agreed upon that for an introduction to a series, book 1 of Scott Pilgrim is very poor.

    What's a good place to buy frames? They are often more expensive than the posters themselves.

    Personally, I think the onion is a nice touch. That's what I get for taking a picture while we're making lunch.

    I also got this. I actually got it in January, but we're posting things we got in January so this fits. Also, I bought the frame for it today.

    DSC00123.jpg

    You can't see it, but it's actually 3D and looks fucking awesome. I also fucked up the corners of the frame a bit because the poster is a weird size so I had to buy a larger one and cut it down to size.

    So, I had a magical trip to GameStop today. After taking a look around at pretty much everything I couldn't afford at the moment, I spot something in the tiny rack that PS2 games still get. It's twenty dollars. So I say to myself, "Y'know what? I can swing it. And this is probably going to be my only chance to pick this up."
    Spoiler:

    So, I take my game to the counter, talk to the guy working there; he's pretty cool. He's been in the store every time I go there, it seems, so I'm alright with him. He rings me up, and then goes into the back. I figure he's checking on something for a customer he's on the phone with. I was wrong. He emerges with an odd packaging and I watched as he reached in, took the disk and manual, placed it in the case, and put the case into the packaging. I was then presented with this.
    Spoiler:

    Twenty Dollars and tax spent. It was a good day.

    It's understandable. It's a game with practically no name recognition except for a niche audience, and it's a rather large package. I have to figure out where I'm going to put it.

    To be honest, I only know a little about the series, but I know well enough to know that if I ever want to play it in the future, I wasn't getting another shot like that.

    I'm happy because it's rare and it was cheap and it's driving one of my friends crazy knowing that I have it.

    To be fair there was a stack of five of these at my local Gamestop on the counter on Saturday. They must have been trying to get rid of 'em.

    It's understandable. It's a game with practically no name recognition except for a niche audience, and it's a rather large package. I have to figure out where I'm going to put it.

    To be honest, I only know a little about the series, but I know well enough to know that if I ever want to play it in the future, I wasn't getting another shot like that.

    I'm happy because it's rare and it was cheap and it's driving one of my friends crazy knowing that I have it.

    At $20, I would have bought one if I owned a PS2, just for the hell of it.

    That's one hell of a deal you got there.
