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

Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 027: Vylon Tesseract

This is a pretty awesome card as well. The union effect is interesting and it's four stars so you can summon it and use its effect!

Game-bit of the day 424: Dragon Ball (FC)

This is a very neat RPG made by Chinese people! It's part of many RPGs released over the past couple of years. Quite unique!

Game-bit of the day 423: Zelda (NES)

The classic!!! Zelda! First edition! You know it's from the original releases because of the hole in the box. It's to show the gold of the cartridge. What a beauty!

Game-bit of the day 421: Tail Concerto Not for Sale (PS1)


This is Not For Sale CD I got from a friend that knew a person in the industry that had a bunch of not for sale games! I was lucky enough to get me this one!

Happy Holidays!

Ads from the past 307: Frogger

So this ad tells you that Frogger has been everywhere! Pretty much everywhere! This game is a classic and always fun to play. You can either play the original or find the hundreds of clones out there. Gotta love Frogger.

Game-bit of the day 419: Rescue of Princess Blobette (Gameboy)


This is the sequel to A Boy and his Blob for the NES. Apparently, a lot of publishers including Nintendo would pick the Gameboy as a way to release a sequel to a bunch of franchises that started out in the NES. Odd but cool.

Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 026: Vylon Sphere

These are very interesting monsters that work together with the Union and Tuner effects.

Game-bit of the day 418: Gameboy Family!


Here is a nice shot of the Gameboy family! Well, there are a bunch that I'm missing but they're somewhere I know that for sure! The beauty of the Gameboy!

Game-bit of the day 417: Rocman X (Gameboy)


This is a pretty awesome game by Sachen. It's buggy but it's original. Can't say I don't like original bootlegs. The Artwork is also amazing!

Game-bit of the day 416: Dragon Warrior 3 + 4 (NES)

These are two well made RPGs. They are for the NES and are awesome! I'm happy to have these beautiful games in my collection but still wondering why they would be named Warrior instead of Quest. It doesn't matter now, they changed the name back to Quest. Go figure!

Game-bit of the day 415: Pokemon Leaf Green + Pikachu SP


You can't play Pokemon unless it's in a sexy Pokemon SP! The Leaf Green version I picked up at Gamestop years ago. It's a lot of fun.

Game-bit of the day 414: Disgaea 4 (PS3)

This is a very cute series overall. You gotta love chibi girls after all. The penguin reminds me of another game that's a bitch to play through....Prinny was it?

Ads from the past 306: Bonk's Adventure Arcade Version

This is one of the cutest ads I've ever seen. This is an ad for the arcade version of Bonk. I had no idea there was an arcade version of Bonk to begin with but any Bonk is welcomed! I'm not so sure about the other character on the right. Again, any Bonk is welcomed! AHH!!!

Pokemon Card of the Week 025: Kingdra

This is one strong ass Pokemon. Not only is it hard to make it evolve, but the beast gains new powers. Just try to defeat it in Pokemon Gold or Silver! The old versions that is!

Game-bit of the day 413: Battletoads (NES)

I've come so close to beating this game it's not even funny. Maybe one day I'll beat it, till then I'll just keep staring at the beautiful cover art.

Game-bit of the day 412: Donkey Kong Country Trilogy (SNES)

What's better than one Donkey Kong Country game? Three Donkey Kong Country games!!! This is a sight of beauty! I prefer the second game over all of them.

Finds 885: Genesis RPG lot and Super Mario Bros Hotwheels!


I was able to pick up these games for the Sega Genesis. It's amazing that there are quite a few of these games that don't get any love but hey, I'll play them if no one else will. I think it's time to game! Oh yeah, the Super Mario Bros Hot Wheels is awesome~!

Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 025: Regulus

Another card with wonderful artwork. This monster I believe appeared in the show as well and played a major part in part of the series. I believe it was in 5Ds.

Game-bit of the day 411: Faxanadu (NES)

This game is just wonderful and underrated as heck. I don't know why so many people just forget about this game. It has RPG elements and side scrolling action. In a lot of way, it surpasses Zelda 2....I just don't get it!

Dec 14, 2015

Game-bit of the day 410: Star Wars (NES)

With the moving coming up, I've been curious about all the older Star Wars games. This is one of the more tougher ones out there although the sequel is so crazy! I rather try the SNES versions even though they are just as tough!

Game-bit of the day 409: Contra (NES)

Contra is one of those games that tend to be difficult until you learn the patterns of everything. Then you can throw the Konami code away and beat it with just three lives and the ones you gain from your high score throughout the game. 


Share:

Finds 884: Windows 3.1 Mahjongg Games and Windows 95 Games!

I always love to find these awesome compilation of games. You just never know what kind of games they will come with, except the Mahjongg one of course. Nevertheless, I can't wait to fire these up in my old PC.
