I took a short break from purchasing video games to make a short move and to start a new job. Now that I'm (more or less settled), I decided it was time to collect the last two consoles I've been missing.
I have a very complicated history/love story with the Nintendo Wii. I stood in a Kmart for thirteen and a half hours to collect one of the twelve launch Wiis they had. I sold it to GameStop a year later. I bought a second Wii in a massive $700 bundle from Walmart, which I also sold a year later to GameStop. Finally, I purchased a third Wii from a friend of mine who was going through a difficult financial time. This Wii stopped working about a year later.
Needless to say, it's been a rough time for me and Wii.
Since that time, I've learned a lot about how to care for the console, how to dismantle it and troubleshoot it. This purchase, like my N64, Super Nintendo, and GameCube, was absolutely perfect. I took the system apart and was surprised to see everything shiny and clean. The only things missing were the plastic doors on the top of the system, which I immediately purchased on Amazon for $6. I'm very pleased with this purchase. Attention to detail is what keeps me coming back to Lukie Games, and I do believe I will remain here while I rebuild my old collection. Thank you, Lukie Games, for allowing me to relive these childhood moments.
