    I don’t know what it is about these huge anniversary albums (like the Mario one and the endless stream of Mega Man ones) but I always want them. If I were more impulsive I’d be broke on the streets living in a house made of video game vinyl and anniversary albums.

    I need to remind myself to check back to see when this is available!
