Finds 564 Some Awesome Findings! Duel Disk, Nintendo 64 Controllers, and Games of course! ^_^

Here is another trip to the flea market gone right. There was definitely more than I could handle as I totally ran out of money! There are lots of goodies though, a little bit of everything like usual. Check it out!

Here are a bunch of Backyard Baseball 2005 games for resell. They were amazingly cheap!

Controllers for various consoles. I'm sure you can tell for which console each one is for.
A duel disk is always a great addition.
Loose disks are always a good pick up since people tend to get rid of them for mad cheap! There are 3DO, PS1, Xbox, and Dreamcast games in here!

This was a surprise. PSvita games for five bucks each. I picked up these four to add to my collection of Vita games which was non-existent.

Here are some portable games as well as GTA collector's edition for the PS1. The Gameshark was also a nice pick up.

Here is an awesome ad from the GBA saga! So many different colors! WOOT!!!


Finds 563: Super Mario All-Stars Wii Limited Edition

I went to do a couple of deals and then on the way back stopped at a pawn shop. I didn't know I would bump into this Super Mario All-Stars for the Wii. This is the limited edition and the soundtrack is still sealed. I was a little bummed out though because when I registered the game, I didn't get any coins! :(
Super Mario All-Stars (WII)


Finds 562: Radiant Historia and Zelda Gasha Figurines!

Here is a game I've been wanting for a while and was finally able to find it. Radiant Historia is one of those games that remind you of Chrono Trigger. I'm definitely planning on playing through this game. I also got some Gasha Zelda figurines from Gamestop. They're always fun to open to see its contents.

Finds 561: King's Knight and City Connection

Here are a couple of boxed NES games I picked up. They're in OK condition and I'm always happy to add new boxed games to my NES collection.

Here are some new labels made by yours truly. They are of some pirate games as well as original games. I'm having a lot of fun creating these beauties. Of course, you can purchase them at my shoppe. Hurry up, they are going fast!!! BUY BUY BUY!!

Thunder Force 4 (GEN)
Duke Nukem 3D (GEN)
Tekken 3 Special (GEN)
Gleylancer (GEN)
Metal Gear Solid (GEN)


Retro-bit of the day 183: Metal Gear Solid (GEN)

Here is a pretty awesome game! It's Metal Gear Solid for the Sega Genesis. This is a pirate game of course as the original game was never released. Be sure to check it out! 


Manual Monday 009: Sonic 2 (GEN)

Here is a very kewl classic manual. It's none other than Sonic 2 for the Sega Genesis. I had it laying around so I figure I might as well show it off! 


CIB Sunday 008: Grandia (PS1)

Here is a little late entry but totally worth it. It's Grandia for the PS1. This is the first game of the Grandia series which is quite good. Wish we could get more games from this series....


Sega Saturday 008: Inside the Game Gear

So this is mega late but whatever, it's here anyways. This is the inside of a Game Gear. There are a lot of different components of this big handheld. It's a shame that they are so fragile. Half the time you'll find them in non-working order.

Finds 559: Mystic Defender and Dragon Warrior 1 & 2

Here are a couple of local pick ups! Mystic Defender and Dragon Warrior 1 & 2 for the GBC. They are some really neat findings indeed. I guess you gotta look everywhere! WOOT! 
Mystic Defender (Genesis)
Dragon Warrior 1 & 2 (GBC)


Finds 558: Turbo Express and Grandia are here!

 So it's finally here. Another awesome addition to my collection. It's the Turbo Express handheld! It's so amazing and bulky. Now, the start of collecting even more Turbo Grafx games has begun! I'm extremely happy with my addition! Also, don't forget about Grandia!! Another gem RPG I wanted for my collection. Things are looking up!

Here is the ridiculous amount of batteries it needs to operate. I really need to get an AC adapter.

Turbo Express
Keith's Courage (TG-16)
Grandia (PS1)


Retro-bit of the day 182: Pet in TV (PS1)

Here is a very odd game for the PS1. There were definitely a lot of bizarre games out there so this one shouldn't be any different! 


Retro-bit of the day 181: Marvel vs Street Fighter (PS1)

This is a very awesome game but it lacks a lot of features from the arcade version. The whole point of playing this game was to tag team with someone but the hardware limitations weren't able to accomplish such task. Oh well...


Famicom Friday 007: Disk System Madness

Here is a little tower of Famicom Disk System madness! It's Famicom Friday after all so why not showcase some of the awesome disks?


July 04, 2013

Finds 557: Keith's Courage for Turbo Grafx! Sweet Gift!

All of these are new additions except Pokemon Gold since I already have another copy. The games are all in great condition as well as the boxes. I couldn't be happier! I always want to add new stuff to my SNES collection. There is so much ground to cover still! I will get there though!
