There's a new comics and figures shop in town. This makes six total "nerd hotspots" than I know of. There's Rockheads, Old Toys Live On, Inner Child, Colosseum Games, My Animix, and now Double Daggers. We also have a pawnshop and a Something Different in town, though one is just an electronics shop that happens to also sell games and systems, and the other randomly sells games and systems for some reason?

Anyway, I'm primarily talking about Double Daggers here. It was, I think, their first day of being open. There was a Wolverine with a cloth outfit... I wonder if it's removable. Heheheh. No Tomb Raider comics, as far as I could tell, but I can always hit up Rockheads for that. But I got a voucher card for 10% off any purchase! Nothing really that caught my eye other than that cute Wolvy figurine, but it was a decent selection for it having been their first day.

Edit - I stopped by Family Video to see if I could get my old Tomb Raider: The Angel of Darkness disc rebuffed and, hopefully, fixed and working again. Two good things: not only did it work again when I took it home, but I didn't have to pay anything for it because they forgot about me and made me wait too long. (I was a good boy and was patient, for the record! I never make a scene when it comes to dealing with retail workers.) I plan on giving it away during a Twitch stream.

I also went to Old Toys Live On to get rid of the six or so racing games I got with my PSone, and got $3 for them altogether. Not bad, but not great either. I don't really care either way. They didn't really have any Barbies--or other merch--I was interested in, so I just went home. I was tempted by a 90's Pocahontas they had, but I decided that I didn't really need her.

I think I'm done for the day now though.
