Finding Miis 006: Gina 2nd Tag!

This is the second tag from this same Mii. Hmmm....I wonder who it is! Sadly, I'll probably never know because there are literally hundreds of people come in to my job every day so there is no way I'll ever find out unless of course I see the person take out their 3DS out and even then I wouldn't approach them and dorkily take out my 3DS to say "Hey so you are the one that tagged me" followed by a goofy laugh!

3DS Pic of the Week 028: Kirby in Fat Mode! ^_^

Here is another drawing I did. I honestly though it could've been better but a mistake I did with the layers made it kinda of hard to return to it. Oh well. Here it is anyways! I promise better work for next week!!! BTW, KIRBY IS FAT!!

Finds 416: Famicom is Back! Pokemon Yellow Chinese Original, Famicom Carts, Super Famicom Carts, Rockman X3 Pirate Original, and More!!

Finds 415: Doki Doki Panic Famicom Cart! Enter Doki Doki Madness!

This is probably the find of the month by far. It's none other than the Famicom cart port of the FDS only game Doki Doki Panic! I played the game for a bit and I gotta say it's not bad at all. This is by far one of the most exciting acquisitions I had this year. I have been looking for this game for such a long time and finally, it's in my hands to add to my ever growing Famicom collection! A true gem by my book! Enjoy the pic of the madness!!

Doki Doki Panic! (Famicom)


Ads From The Past 216: Double Dragon III (NES)

This is probably the toughest Double Dragon game ever! I had to use the Game Genie to beat this one and even then I barely beat it! This is Double Dragon going totally wrong. I'm glad they made up for it with Super Double Dragon on the SNES but man this one really messed me up! Enjoy!


May 24, 2012

Finds 414: Some New PS2 Additions, Miami Heat 2006 DVD, and a Shocking Surprise! @_@

So today was yet another day of odd finds. There were some interesting games and actually some I still didn't had for my collection. Lets see what we got today ok? Lets go Heat!

3DS Pic of the Week 027: My Super Mario 3D Drawing ^_^

Here is what I worked on in a night of boredom! That 3D colors app is amazing! I gotta thank my love for telling me about it and convincing me on getting it! Anyways, this is a drawing I did of Mario. It's my first ever 3D drawing and I plan on getting a lot better!


Retrobeat Tuesdays 009: Duck Tales Moon Theme

So there are so many memorable themes for the old 8-bit console but this one is one of the most incredible ones period. The tune came from the game Duck Tales and well I'll let the tune do all the talking errr sounding!


Animonday 009: Mega Man The Fighting Robot

So here is a very memorable intro. If many of you missed it, the show only lasted two seasons but was as good as you can imagine! Let us remember the good old days with this awesome intro!


Retro Gaming News 123: Standard Daisenryaku: Lost Victory v0.60 Patch released

"This is a patch for the Playstation 2 WW2 turn based strategy game. It translates all the scenarios in the Victory Path (Marita, Barbarossa, Typhoon, Blau, and Tunisia campaigns) This now allows you to successfully complete the game in early 1943.

About half the scenarios remain to be translated. These are all in the Defeat Path. Once you enter the defeat path, the final outcome will always be a last ditch defense of Berlin in 1945. One consolation of playing these no win scenarios is that this is the only way to obtain the really powerful late war German weapons."

Finds 413: Wicked Oddball Finds! A little bit of everything!

I went to some places, looked around, and asked around. In the end, I was able to pick up some awesome items. The photo should speak for final days of hunting in Florida may be counted but that doesn't mean they can't end on a high note! Behold, some wicked finds!

Finding Miis 005: Kira at Work!

So here is another Mii finding. This one I got at work as soon as I came in. It's so odd that this has happened the last couple of times. I'm not complaining though, it's another Mii for my collection!


May 19, 2012

Finds 412: Spartan X2 Famicom Madness!

So I was left with a slip from the USPS yesterday. Urging to see what the package was, I hurried to the post office this morning and picked up the package! It's none other than Spartan X2 for the Famicom! Isn't it beautiful??

Spartan X2 (Famiom)


Retro Gaming News 122: Time for something a little different Lunatic Fantasy

"Today I have released a complete translation patch for the Sharp X68000 doujin game Lunatic Fantasy. Most doujin games of the era usually featured some kind of adult content, but this game is the exception. However, there are very strong lesbian themes and undertones, but never makes itself inappropriate. So this game is not for everyone, but if you like adventure games, visual novels and obscure Japanese games, this translation might be for you. Thanks to Eien ni Hen for producing an excellent script and Hemiasinus for the tools and taking care of the more complicated stuff."


Ads from the Past 215: Operation C (Game Boy)

Here is a pretty kewl ad for the equivalent of Contra for the Game Boy! Although you don't see the good guys in the upper image, they still appear on the cover...shoot that alien!!


Finds 411: Zippo NES Controller, Dark Waters, and Game Boy Multicart!

3DS Pic of the Week 026: 3D Penguins Art!

As usual we have another 3D masterpiece to show! This one is totally adorable! It was made by the same talented artist as the one from last week. I can't express enough how beautiful it looks in 3D. So that's that, I'm just going to leave you with the usual links and it'll be up to you to check it out with your 3DS!


Animonday 008: Tales of Symphonia

So here is a very memorable game for the Game Cube. Even though it doesn't have any lyrics, you can still enjoy the full motion animation of it!! Enjoy!!


Retrobeat Tuesdays 008: Mega Man 4 Dr Cossack Stage

Another day with another tune. Sadly, this was held back till yesterday but here it is! A totally classic tune from Mega Man 4 for the NES!

The Hardest Decision of my Childhood!

It was very tough but I ended up picking Bulbasaur....later that year I got a link and my brother got Pokemon Blue so we traded more decisions then!!


Finds 409: Pirates Arrr!!! Gun Nac, Samurai PIzza Cats, Snow Brothers, etc!

I got these sexy games in the mail today! I've been wanting to get me new pirates lately so this is a nice welcomed addition to my collection. The games are pretty neat. There are two multis that come with two games in one and a single game cart (Snow Bros). All the games worked great and I actually started playing one of them called Gun Nac which is a shooter game. I enjoyed it but found it a little too easy... I also played some Samurai Pizza Cats and this weird side scroller with a three eyed bald guy.... totally awesome stuff!!
