Finds 1233: Bloodstained Curse of the MoonU

The revival of Castlevania is just beautiful to play and look at!

Cartoon Turtles Action Figures are just Tubular!

These action figures are definitely one of my favorites ever! Check out some of their photography!

Finds 1265: Falcom Games Collection Plus Yugioh Cards!

Falcom Games collection is pretty awesome. It comes with some classic games in one. I gotta love these compilations with classic games on the Saturn. There are more of them out there. Also, got some cute girls in Yu-gi-oh! 


Finds 1264: Sega Saturn Games in the Wild WOW!

You can still find Saturn games in the wild! I would pick these up any days! The games are Casino, World Series Baseball 98, and Tetris Plus. Of course, the one that's totally worth it is Tetris Plus. Gotta love Tetris. Sega and Tetris is a great combo! 


Finds 1263: Sunsetriders for SNES

One of my favorite games of all time! Sunsetriders! I can't believe I gave this game away years ago...what was I thinking? Anyways, I'm glad to have it back as it's an amazing run and gun style game. I have yet to beat it in Hard...I will accomplish this one day. 


Finds 1262: Captain Commando for SNES

This is Captain Commando for the SNES. Man, did I get a deal on this one. I am so happy to have such a hard to find game and best of all, the price I paid was not even half of what it's worth. Anyways, I placed it on my Famicom as a gag. Funny huh? I highly recommend this one. 


Finds 1261: Stonekeep for PC

A lone find after all the thrift store shopping I've been doing. This is Stonekeep and it's a memorable game by Interplay. It's not a crazy good game, but PC gamers from the past recognize this one. I love the cover art because I love skeletons. 


Finds 1260: Sexy Bootlegs!

I got a bunch of bootleg famicom games from a friend. I usually buy from him and he offers me so much good stuff. I still collect these after all these years. Some of the titles are Ice Climber, Captain America, Punch Out, and Don Doko Don. Love these games!


Finds 1259: Video Game Guides!

Here are some game guides. I personally love when the guides are hard cover. They just feel great and I'm a fan of books so these are amazing additions to the collection! Ni No Kuni, Dark Souls 1 and 2 are the game guides. 


Finds 1258: Super Adventure Island II for SNES

I've been adding a lot of new titles for the SNES that I've missed the first time around. This one is Super Adventure Island 2 and it's just an amazing game. It turns the game into more of a quest for items and adventure. I like the new take! 


Finds 1257: Tetris for Nintendo Switch

Here is a game I wanted to have in physical form. It came with a one year subscription for Nintendo online service so that's something more. I love Tetris!

Finds 1256: Knights of the Round for SNES

Here is a title I've been wanting for a long time! It's Knights of the Round for the SNES. I remember renting this game all the time. It was a lot of fun to play with my brother, but we never got to beat the game. That's alright, I got to beat the game finally after all these years. Another wonderful game added to the collection. 


Ads from the Past 448: King's Quest V (NES)

King's Quest V was the only King's Quest game released on the NES. It was a very odd conversion as we weren't used to having PC games on the NES. Some of these titles made it including this one and a couple of Ultima games. Captain Comic would be another one even though that's more of what the NES was all about. Overall, it's a beautiful artistically defined piece. 


Finds 1255: Catherine Heart's Desire Premium Edition

Here is an epic addition to the collection! This is Catherine for the PS4. One of my favorite games for the PS3 got a remastered release for the PS4. Although I would've loved to have a sequel, this will do. Best of all, it was free because of the gift cards I have!


Finds 1254: Random Stuff! NBA Jam, Escape from Monkey Island, and More!

Here are a bunch of Playstation 2 titles! I went to this flea market that I haven't gone to in a while and found some nice little additions. Lots of stuff for the collection! Also, an unusual Wii game by Hudson. I honestly just got it because it was released by Hudson. 


Finds 1253: PC Stuff! Random PC Stuff!

It's time for some PC additions! Animated Desktop was actually something out of this world back in the day. To have a more interactive experience with your desktop back in the windows 95/98 eras was something else. Also, some compilation shareware games! So much good stuff!

Corona Virus Craziness!

So it's been a while since I've posted something on here. I do want to apologize but the past month and a half has been so crazy for me. My life has totally changed starting with school which went online only and that was a total change for me as I've never taken an online class ever. Then, I became an essential worker due to my job and our shift hours changed dramatically. Not only that, but we have been working so hard with the rush of people that came in. Things have started to go back to normal and with the semester done, I feel like I can do more things now. Stay tuned for more updates! Sorry for the delays! 
Everyone stay safe! Things are not done yet...

Finds 1252: Famiclone from Canada

 This is a lot of Famicom games I won on eBay for an amazing price. I can't believe how much I paid for it. Lets just say, I won this lot for the price of one of the Super Mario 2J games. Not only that, I got a bunch of adapters with it! A total steal! 
Here are the adapters! So many of them. I'm happy to say that I have tested everything and everything works. The lot was sold as is so many of the possible buyers were probably turned off due to that.  


Mar 22, 2020

Finds 1251 Psikyo Vol 3, Beat 'em Up Collection, and Ninja Saviors

Playasia arrivals! Psikyo Vol 3 introduces more shoot 'em up classics that are welcomed for the Nintendo Switch. Beat 'em up collection is also another one very welcomed! I love how it comes with the arcade counterparts of some of the most awesome classics. Finally, Ninja Saviors is actually a very awesome classic from the SNES era called Ninja Warriors. Overall, Playasia is a great place to pick up some great games. 


Mar 21, 2020

Finds 1250: Mario Adventure on the NES

I have been wanting to get this hack for a while in physical form. This is Mario Adventure and it pretty much shows what a Super Mario Bros 4 game would've been in the NES. You get new power ups, new levels, a save system, and many more stuff! This one set a new standard for Mario hacks. Totally want to beat this one one day!


Mar 20, 2020

Finds 1249: Metal Wolf Chaos XD

This game has a lot of history. Apparently, it was supposed to be released in the Xbox and things happened. Coming out on the PS4 so many years will definitely make it a good conversation piece. More for the collection! 


Mar 19, 2020

Finds 1248: Bootleg Famicom Beauties Still Keep On Coming!

Here are more Famicom beauties! The games are some that I wanted to add as well as some variants. I got these from a seller that I've been buying from for years. He is always delivering some amazing stuff. Must get more! 


Mar 18, 2020

Finds 1247: Joe & Mac 2 Lost in the Tropics

A very epic addition to the collection. Joe & Mac 2 is one of those games that eluded me for years. I finally had the chance to snap one up and don't regret it at all! I have been working on getting all the SNES games I missed the first time around. I highly recommend this entry in the series. I believe this was also the last entry for the series, but I may be wrong. Another great addition to the collection.
