X-Card for Neo Geo X

Today I received a X-Card GOLD Pack by Neslou. The X-Card is a fool proof solution to play custom content on a Neo Geo X. This is what I got:

New Arrivals: Wireless Speed Wheel – DSi – Roland U-110

Some new/old stuff that was in the mail this week:

SEGA Rally Online Arcade and the Microsoft Wireless Speed WheelSEGA Rally Online Arcade and the Microsoft Wireless Speed Wheel. For some unknown reason this game is not available for download at my Xbox Marketplace. It’s included as pack-in with the Wireless Speed Wheel only. Because the outer box was missing it was a real bargain buy – both items are brand new.
The Speed Wheel can be seen as a cross-breed between the excellent Wireless Racing Wheel and a regular game pad. Most game think it’s just a game pad and behave accordingly – controlling the cars is almost impossible (e.g. Forza Horizon). But games that were designed to use either wheel play surprisingly well (e.g. Forza 4).

Nintendo e-Reader 6PIN Protection Cover and Urban Champion

AGB-016 6PIN Protection CoverToday I got two additions for my Nintendo e-Reader collection:

The first one is a small piece of plastic, known as AGB-016 or 6PIN Protection Cover. It is still being sold in AGB-016 6PIN Protection Coverthe Nintendo Online Shop and protects the Game Boy Advance SP screen when an e-Reader+ or an e-Reader with a link cable port is plugged in. Actually it is a very useful little accessory with the only drawback being it has to be fixed permanently on the e-Reader. The e-Reader then won’t fit anymore in the original Game Boy Advance.

A second-hand Neo Geo X was in the mail this weekend. Best thing about it is (besides beeing cheap) there are no signs of use, just some minor damage at the packing materials and some fingerprints on the glossy Screen.

New Arrival: Deus Ex: Human Revolution Collector’s Edition

Look what came in the mail today: The collector’s edition of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Basically it’s just the augmented/limited edition plus a very fragile toy with exchangeable hands and arms in a cardboard box. This will keep me busy for some time (the game, not the puppet).
