Game-bit of the day 732: Kingdom Hearts (NDS)

There are so many Kingdom Hearts games out there and this is just another one in the bunch. Can we just get part 3 already? This is just ridiculous.

Game-bit of the day 728: Mario Kart DS (NDS)

Gotta race with the best in this one! This is Mario Kart DS and it's well for the Nintendo DS. The game is lots of fun and has the usual Nintendo touch. Definitely worth it for the multiplayer aspect.

Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 066: Airknight Parshath

I loved this card back in the day. One sacrifice was a tough cost to getting this bad boy out. The thing is, if he attacks the life points of an opponent, you get to draw a card. That's a pretty awesome effect as it's always giving you a plus 1!

Game-bit of the day 727: Biohazard 2 Value Plus (DC)


I'm not even sure what extra it brings but I'm sure it brings something more than the normal games right? Either way, this is my favorite Resident Evil hands down. Nothing like it will ever be released.

Game-bit of the day 726: Zelda Tri Force Heroes (3DS)

This is a fun game for multiplayer which is something Nintendo has always focused on. Ready to use different Links?

Pokemon Card of the Week 056: Feraligatr

FERALIGATR intimidates its foes by opening its huge mouth. In battle, it will kick the ground hard with its thick and powerful hind legs to charge at the foe at an incredible speed.

Game-bit of the day 725: Prince of Persia (NDS)


This is a cute little game from the Prince of Persia universe! Definitely worth a playthrough as it brings back the game to its roots, somewhat.

Game-bit of the day 724: Moon Crystal (NES)

This is one tough platformer. I totally recommend it as it's not only a tough game, but the game looks amazing for an 8-bit NES game that is!

Game-bit of the day 723: Magic Knight Reyearth 2 (Game Gear)

I had to get this little game for the Game Gear. It's totally worth it just for the cover art. A beautiful game indeed!

Game-bit of the day 722: Selection (GB)


This is another little gem for the gameboy. A classic RPG for it that plays somewhat like Dragon Quest. Definitely digging that artwork.

February 17, 2017

Game-bit of the day 721: Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey (NDS)

This is a very strange game from the Shin Megami Tensei series. It's tough and has very classic gameplay. Definitely a must!

Yu-gi-oh! Card of the Week 065: Brain Control

This is another card is might be coming back to the meta but with some errata of course. I think that's what they're doing with all the old cards nowadays. Anyways, this is like Change of Heart but with a 800 life point penalty. It's a pretty powerful card so beware if it comes out of the list and someone finds a way to make it broken again.

Game-bit of the day 720: Game Genie for the Genesis


This is a cheating device for the Genesis. You can get infinite lives, infinite energy, infinite everything for your most popular games! CHEATER!

Game-bit of the day 719: Gameboy Pockets

These are two Gameboy pockets! They are quite awesome and sleek! The old Gameboys are definitely some of my favorites to have in my collection.

Pokemon Card of the Week 055: Meganium

The fragrance of MEGANIUM’s flower soothes and calms emotions. In battle, this POK√©MON gives off more of its becalming scent to blunt the foe’s fighting spirit.

Finds 1005: The Mansion of Hidden Souls

This little gem finally arrived to my home. It was lost in the mail for almost a month, but I'm glad to finally have it in my possession. If you haven't heard of this game, don't worry! It's not that amazing but it's interesting overall. The game is not for everyone~! 


Share:

Game-bit of the day 718: Bomberman '93 (PC-Engine)

This is Bomberman 93 for the PC-Engine! The game is pretty awesome! It is probably the best Bomberman for the PC-Engine so you should definitely try it out.

Finds 1004: Divine Sealing, Toad's Treasure Quest, and Inversion


Three very awesome games. One of them is called Divine Sealing which is a shoot 'em up combined with some Hentai themed photos! It's a good mix! The second game is Toad's Treasure Quest which is a hack of Super Mario Bros in which you play as Toad with all new levels! Inversion is a homebrew that uses a switch gimmick in order to get through the levels. It's very interesting overall.

Game-bit of the day 717: Pokemon Green (GB)

This is a pretty awesome game that was translated years ago and finally was able to get a physical copy of it. The thing is, this one has nothing new over the other versions that came out but was a missing release from the original two. The game is practically the same except with the Pokemon art being a little different.

Finds 1003: Mega Man for the Master System!

Now this is something else. I was able to pick this up even though they were a little limited in quantity. This is a port of Mega Man for the Game Gear into the Master System. I'm not even sure how this was possible! Here it is nonetheless! Definitely a must have for Master System collectors as well as Mega Man fans!


Share:

Game-bit of the day 716: Halley Wars (Game Gear)


This is a shoot 'em up for the Game Gear. Believe it or not, there is a shoot 'em up for the handheld! Even though we got very few games for it here in the USA, this is one you have to try at least once. It's nothing amazing, but it is unique in its own sense.
