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!

Retro Game of the Week 170: Electro Man (PC)

A very obscure game for the PC makes an appearance! It's Electro Man!

Finds 849: Zelda Majora's Mask Collector's Edition!

I had to get this game in collector form. It is Zelda after all ^_^

Game-bit of the day 344: Wario Land Shake It! (Wii)

This is such an underrated game. It's amazing how the Wario side-scrollers keep getting put to the side. This is one of those but I'm glad it's in my collection. Play it if you haven't, it's quite good!

Game-bit of the day 343: Micro Machines (Game Gear)

This is an awesome cart by Codemasters. It's Micro Machines for the Game Gear. The cart size is bigger than the usual Game Gear cart which makes it quite intriguing. The game itself is quite decent.

Finds 848: The Secret Forces are Here!

This was a nice set while it lasted. The hype is down by now but this was the picture of the box I bought on release date. It was quite a set.

Game-bit of the day 342: Dragon Warrior I & II (GBC)

Isn't this a nice game? Two awesome RPG classics in one cart. Dragon Warrior is known as Dragon Quest which was the original name in Japan. Not sure why they changed it in the first place.

Game-bit of the day 341: Digimon Rury (GBA)

One of the more interesting bootlegs for the Gameboy Advance is Digimon Rury and what a grammatical error it contains! Shouldn't it be Ruby? Well, either way the game is amazing! One of the best ever released by bootlegers!

Finds 847: Yu-gi-oh! and Video Games, a Great Mix!

There hasn't been much to be showing off but here are some of my latest loot! 


Share:

Game-bit of the day 340: Pokemon Blue (Gameboy)

This is another gem for the Gameboy. I'm sure many of you know about this game but it's always nice to refresh your memory. The first generation of Pokemon is by far the best and most memorable one. Care to find Missigno?

Game-bit of the day 339: Romance of the Three Kingdoms (NES)

Very popular in Japan, not so much here but it does have a following. It's a beautiful game regardless.

Finds 846: Monster Hunter IV

RPGs are my thing and I'm definitely happy to have this into my collection! I picked it up but I probably won't get back into it. 



Share:

Game-bit of the day 338: Metroid (FDS)

Another Disk System exclusive release. Metroid is a classic. This is my favorite version mainly because it was just so full of exploration and adventure. It'll always be my favorite!

Apr 7, 2015

Game-bit of the day 337: Zelda 2 (FDS)

This is probably the toughest Zelda game ever. Zelda 2 for the Famicom Disk System was the only way the Japanese gamers experienced this game for a long time. Of course, nowadays the game is available through the only e-shop but back then it was quite rare.

Finds 845: The Beauty of Collecting! Various Additions!


Here are some of the recent pick ups! Yu-gi-oh! wise as well. I'm just filling in the gaps of my collection. I haven't been as crazy as my other hobby (Yu-gi-oh!) has been taking up more and more of my time. 


Share:

Game-bit of the day 336: Dead Zone (FDS)

This is a fun game and I'm sure many have not played it since it's for a very obscure Nintendo add-on. The Famicom Disk System has some of the most obscure games on existence for Nintendo fans. Care to journey into the unknown?

Apr 5, 2015

Game-bit of the day 335: Toy Story (Genesis)

This is a very epic game. Back then, these movie-games were still quite fun to play. This is a perfect example of a game based on a movie that's fun and playable. Where did we go wrong?

Finds 844: The Super Famicom Paint Job!

Isn't it awesome to get a crappy looking yellowed console and bring it to new color? I think so! This has been my ever full console mod and I think it's pretty good. This is my main SNES now. I copied the Famicom colors and used them on a SNES in order to give it some gimmick. There is one last thing that I need to add to it, I totally forgot about it! 



Share:

Game-bit of the day 334: Pokemon Yellow (GBC)

My favorite of the entire series. Pokemon Yellow was just perfect and you know why? Not only do you get all starters plus a Pikachu that follows you around but you also get to fight against the mighty Team Rocket! That's just incredible! This game holds a spot in my heart for its awesomeness.

Game-bit of the day 333: Journey to Silius (NES)

This is a beautiful game! Very underrated just because it's not released by Nintendo doesn't mean that it sucks. The cover art is more than enough to make you want to play it. Game on!

Finds 843: Penguin Madness!


This was a very interesting day. This Penguin Famiclone definitely made my day as I've never been able to pick one up for a decent price. Who thought a Penguin would make a great Famiclone though? The rest of the games are pretty standard.

Game-bit of the day 332: Gargoyle's Quest 2 (NES)

This is a gem of a game. It's also quite hard to find. I got so lucky finding this game, you have no idea! Especially because it's sealed. I originally had three sealed copies ^_^ I only need one though, no reason to hog them.

Game-bit of the day 331: Zelda 64 (N64)

What else is there to say about this game? It's legendary and addictive. This probably rivals the SNES release of Zelda in popularity. I know it receives more love overall.
