Finds 621: Fat PS3, Sega Genesis Model 1, Atari First Edition, and More!

Here is my loot from last Thursday. It was a pretty slow day but it all turned to awesomeness with the consoles you see here. Each one is special in their own way. The PS3 is the backwards compatible but it has the yellow light which I'm going to fix myself. The Sega Genesis is the best model as it has the High definition graphics logo there. The Atari is the first edition from Sunnyville, CA. I paid five bucks for each of those!!! The rest are just some bonus games here and there. More stuff for the convention.

There are also some Yu-gi-oh cards and portables!!! If you haven't seen it, there are some hentai VHS tapes in the background. I want to apologize for the lack of pics. I've been so busy! I promise better more detailed photos for future finds!

This was an epic haul right here. So much stuff to show that it doesn't even fit in the photo! Lets just say there is also a Nintendo 64 haul in here! Check out the pics below. One of the kewlest additions is the Xbox 360 Sign that lights up and all! It's hanging in my room as I'm typing this of course. Lets go through the entire loot!
 Here is the rest of my loot. It's a nice Nintendo 64 lot with console and games. Lots of controllers too! It's definitely sweet! Lots of goodies as you can see and more controllers!!!

Here is a better look at the controllers, console, and Donkey Konga Bongos!!!

A very interesting boxed gamecube brought a couple of surprises. One of them being the portable monitor while the other was a copy of Mario Kart Double Dash inside the console. You can't forget about the Wavebird receiver it had in it as well! Gotta love it!

Here is some of the other loot. Some Anime dvds, a master system game, and portable stuff!

Here is a better view of the Nintendo 64 stuff. Lots of awesome stuff indeed!

Retro-bit of the day 290: Crash Bandicoot 2 (PS1)

This is by far my favorite Crash game period! Crash Bandicoot 2 is just perfect in every way possible. If you ever want to see what a Crash game is all about, then try this one first! 


Retro-bit of the day 289: Final Fantasy 8 (PS1)

So here is a very interesting game in the Final Fantasy series. Final Fantasy 8 was one of the more bizarre Final Fantasies period. The gameplay was good but the storyline was just bizarre altogether. A lot of things won't make sense until the later parts of the game but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy it! 


Retro-bit of the day 288: Abadox (NES)

Here is a very wicked game. Abadox is another hidden gem that every retro gamer should've played at some point. Check it out if you don't believe me! 


Retro-bit of the day 287: Silent Service (NES)

Here is a pretty awesome Submarine game....yay for Subs and yay for a game about Subs.....not really! 


Retro-bit of the day 286: Captain Skyhawk (NES)

Here is a game with a dude wearing a helmet and he's a captain! Isn't that tubular? Awww yeahhh!


Retro-bit of the day 285: Little Nemo Dream Master (NES)

Here is a cult classic for the NES. Little Nemo Dream Master is one of those memorable games that no one seems to know much about. I wish there would've been a sequel  but correct me if I'm wrong. I can't know everything about video games you know! 


Retro-bit of the day 284: Pac-man 2 (Gen)

Here is a Pacman game. It's not like the previous Pacman games so be ready for some wicked new shit!! It's Pacman 2 for your Sega Genesis entertainment system! Awww yeahhh PUCK MAN IS BACK!


Retro-bit of the day 283: Gameboy Camera

This is one of the oddest peripherals  ever! You can take photos of yourself with it and even print your photos! Oh yeah, did I mentioned you can play games with yourself in the game??? Wicked weird but fun! 


Retro-bit of the day 282: Bonk's Revenge (TG-16)

The Turbo Grafx entries continue and this time with some Bonk! This is Bonk's Revenge for the Turbo Grafx and it kicks ass!!! Gotta love the Bonk games. The ones for Nintendo don't do justice for the series. Be sure to check it out!!! It's Bonktocular! :p


Manual Monday 015: Lufia (SNES)

I totally forgot about this entry. It's almost two weeks late but totally worth mentioning! This is one of the first ever RPGs I played on the SNES and definitely one of the best ones. Lufia showed me an experience of RPG goodness that I've never felt before. Play it, you won't be disappointed!
