Hi Everyone, my name is Louis and I am in retro Nintendo games.

I am an Australian Stand Up comedian who lives in Estonia and I really like old Nintendo stuff. Back in the day I used to own an Amiga 500 and eventually a Sega Megadrive with a few games but for some reason now I am really into Nintendo. As of Summer 2016 Ive got 2 original Game Boys, 1 Game Boy Printer, 1 Game Boy Color, 2 Game Boy Advance SPs, an American NES, a Japanese Famicom and a soft modded Wii which I reckon is the ultimate system for playing emulated retro games. Soon arriving should be a Japanese Super Famicom and a Famicom AV. In January of 2016 I’ll be taking a week in Tokyo and you can bet your sweet ass I’ll be bringing back a big ass haul.

I think I’m into this stuff because I can shamelessly relive parts of my childhood without spending a ton. Hey, it’s not as expensive as a motorcycle and chicks dig it almost as much (ok fine, but still a bit).

I am a big fan of getting my stuff from Japan. The prices are much better and the postage is pretty reasonable. Every time I order something from Europe it’s 5€ postage and comes to me with a 2€ stamp on it. I figure if I get the consoles and the games from Japan then it’s all good. I really like how the original Game Boy line was all region free, getting a copy of the original Kirby in Japanese is still a thrill for me.

I get drunk and bored and I order stuff from eBay, so Imma tell you all about them here.

The name of this blog is both a play on Donkey Kong Country and also the line from the song Thrift Shop, cause I’m getting all this shit second hand.

So far my collection has required it’s own “Table of Shame” (hat tip to Vinnk of Famicom Dojo). Soon I’ll need more space and I’m not sure what do yet. Speaking of Famicom Dojo, they have been a huge inspiration for me and taught me a lot. So go read their blog too to find out how real collectors do it.

Here is a picture of me taken at Eurovision 2016 taken by Hendrik Osula, that bloke knows how to take a good picture.

    1. Oh thanks mate, I really love the Famicom Dojo videos and i think I’ve watched them so much I need to deliberately not make my own in that style. Keep up the good work!
