Finds 1311: Captain Comic 2 for DOS

Here is another awesome classic game for the PC. It's a classic series which plays a lot like Super mario bros. As a matter of fact, the sprite looks quite similar. It's a lot of fun nonetheless. Gotta love these amazing games.

Finds 1310: Rockman X4 Disk Acquired!

So a couple of years ago, I got a bunch of Mega Man imports and Rockman X4 was one of them. Unfortunately, the game came with the wrong disk. After talking to the seller, he gave me a partial refund and the case was left without being completed. That is, until now! I got the disk only copy of the game and placed it in its rightful place. It's quite satisfying to finish it!

Finds 1309: Dell Computer Addition ! Windows 98SE Gaming PC

 So when I got this computer, it had Windows Xp on it with some random software. I ended up getting it and erasing everything on it. I downloaded the appropriate drivers for everything and after some tweaking, I was able to have a successful result. 
The computer specs!

Pentium 4 1.5ghz
80 GB Hard Drive

Finds 1308: Castle of the Winds II for DOS

Castle of the Winds II is a game released for Windows. This is another game I tried when I used to be on AOL. So many of these games were available to play shareware of course. It's wonderful and very nostalgic. 


Jul 9, 2020

Finds 1307: Ancients 2 for DOS

This is a classic game that I played during the good old AOL times. I remember going to the games section on the program AOL 3.0 to be precise, and downloaded the game. So incredible! It was a very limited game, but so much fun.

Finds 1306: Computer Loot! Keyboard and Quake Games

 Here are some additions for the PC! I found a whole Quake 2 collection. I wish I could've found the PC these belongs to! So awesome! Love it! 

I also got this odd looking keyboard! It's curved!


Jul 7, 2020

Finds 1305: Barcelona 92 and Pixel Junk Monsters Deluxe

Here are some additions from the thrift store! Nothing fancy, but I won't say no to a pixel PSP game and a boxed Game Gear game!


Jul 6, 2020

Finds 1304: Cosmic Wars for Famicom

This is Cosmic Wars for the Famicom. Believe it or not, the box is actually paper print out! It's nice but I wanted the original box. Guess I'll hunt for it! 


Jul 5, 2020

Finds 1303: Sega Genesis Mini is Mine!

Another wonderful little mini console for the collection. I was able to pick this up at Gamestop used for 34.99! Now, that's a steal! I snatched this up! It comes with lots of amazing games and guess what? Just like with any of the other mini consoles, it cane be hacked to add more games! 


Jul 4, 2020

Finds 1302: Breast Cancer Sega Controllers

 Here are some amazing additions for a good cause. Two Sega Pads that are pink which are also representing the power of women! Part of the sales will go for a Breast Cancer association. 


Jul 3, 2020

Finds 1301: Running Battle and Bloodstained Ritual of the Nigh

Here are two new titles! Bloodstained which is a gorgeous game for the Switch, and Running Battle which just attracted me so much from the cover art. It won't be the last time I buy a game for the artwork itself! 


Jul 2, 2020

Finds 1300: Retro Freak is Here! The All in One Console!

For the 1300th post, we got a new console! This is the Retro Freak and it's amazing! It loads your classic games on your big screen high def TV! It's just beautiful! It works with an SD card and rips off the data off the card, then saves it to your SD card so you don't need the cart again. That's quite handy if you ask me. It plays over 9 consoles and has some add ons for more consoles including the Game Gear. This is just an amazing console. I already set them up in my room, now I just need the time to game! Totally highly recommend it! 


Jul 1, 2020

Finds 1299: Download, Mr Heli, Darkwing Duck, Burning Fest

Some freaking amazing additions. I love the PC Engine and any new games for it especially good ones are always welcomed! Darkwing Duck for the NES is one that has eluded me for a long time. Overall, solid additions to my ever growing collection! 


Jun 30, 2020

Finds 1298: Fantasy Zone for Famicom

This is another game I wanted to add to my collection. Fantasy Zone is a really cool series and the different ports offer advantages or disadvantages depending on the hardware. This one is another gem by Sunsoft! 


Jun 29, 2020

Finds 1297: OLD PC 100MHZ Beauty!

That big lot of Computer stuff also came with this beautiful PC. It comes with a voodoo card and windows 95. It's totally amazing for mid 90s FPS games. It's one of those PCs that I will have forever! I really don't see myself getting rid of this ever! It's classic! 

Jun 28, 2020

Finds 1296: Tower of Mac Apple 2

A good friend of mine was getting rid of his computers and let me have first dibs on what he was getting rid of. I took so much with me but the big addition was these three apple computers. One of them is an apple 2 and well, it's one I've been looking for forever! I am so happy to have these in the collection. They will belong to me forever! There was so much stuff as well including computer parts, software, and floppy disks! So much amazingness! 


Jun 27, 2020

Finds 1295: Ninja Gaiden 3 for Famicom

I got this one! Ninja Gaiden 3 for the Famicom. I believe this is a really good version of the game and a lot easier than the NES version. I will have to see how different it is. I also have the bootleg version but I think that's more based on the NES version than Famicom. 


Jun 26, 2020

Finds 1294: Gunstar Heroes and Splatterhouse 2

Two gems that I was able to add at the same time. Guess how? A seller on ebay was selling them together! Once I got them, I opened them up of course because it was such a good deal, I had to check if they were legit. Finally, I was able to open them up and they were good to go. I'm so happy to add two amazing titles for my Genesis collection. The only complain is the little rip on the label of Splatterhouse 2, but I am not going to complain much especially for the price! 


Jun 25, 2020

Finds 1293: Metal Storm Collector's Edition

 I ended up preordering Metal Storm from Castlemania games because it's just a really cool re-release of the game. Believe it or not, I did bought Metal Storm at a convention like a couple of weeks before this was announced. That's alright, totally worth it! 


Jun 24, 2020

Finds 1292: The Only DOS book you'll ever need

So DOS is one language I've been learning so I can become a bigger user of DOS. The language is pretty awesome. I believe this will be quite helpful in the future projects I have involving old computers. 


Jun 23, 2020

Finds 1291: Strahl, Riot Zone, High Velocity, and Zelda a Link Between Worlds, Famicom Randoms

Here are so many goodies! Strahl is probably my rarest 3DO game now! High Velocity is an awesome racing game for the Saturn. Finally, got Zelda 3DS sequel! Riot Zone for the DUO! Lots of cool Famicom games as well! See? Lots of amazing additions!
