I completed the American set?

Total cost of Super Robot Taisen 2: Original Generations at Gamestop: $10

Also available at the same store: GBA version of Super Mario Bros., a 23 year old game.

Cost of Super Mario Bros. when it was new in 2005: $20.

Cost of Super Mario Bros. in 2008, used: $25.

This industry is fucking daffy.

Since you've got both, here's a little protip that'll help you, since your recent OG posts have kinda gotten a double take out of me on one particular point.

If you refer to the GBA games, those are Original Generation or OG1 / OG2. Original Generations, on the other hand, refers to the (import-only) PS2 remake that contains (expanded, super-pretty) versions of both games. We also call that OGs for that. Original Generation Gaiden, or OGG, is the direct sequel.

I give you the protip because you keep referring to Original Generations and it confuses me at first glance, since it makes me think of the PS2 game. ^_^;

Anyway! I hope you enjoy both games immensely, but do be aware – you probably already know this, but a reminder doesn't hurt – that OG2 is much harder than OG1 and cannot be played the same way.

Oh! I also got Mobile Suit Gundam: Encounters in Space. $15. Good deal?

Excellent deal. EIS is almost as good, control-wise, as Gundam VS. Zeta Gundam, but it gives you the added benefit of covering a number of U.C. stories you haven't seen / played yet; its 0083 segment is particularly good.
