Finds 1298: Fantasy Zone for Famicom

This is another game I wanted to add to my collection. Fantasy Zone is a really cool series and the different ports offer advantages or disadvantages depending on the hardware. This one is another gem by Sunsoft!

Finds 1297: OLD PC 100MHZ Beauty!

That big lot of Computer stuff also came with this beautiful PC. It comes with a voodoo card and windows 95. It's totally amazing for mid 90s FPS games. It's one of those PCs that I will have forever! I really don't see myself getting rid of this ever! It's classic! 

June 28, 2020

Finds 1296: Tower of Mac Apple 2

A good friend of mine was getting rid of his computers and let me have first dibs on what he was getting rid of. I took so much with me but the big addition was these three apple computers. One of them is an apple 2 and well, it's one I've been looking for forever! I am so happy to have these in the collection. They will belong to me forever! There was so much stuff as well including computer parts, software, and floppy disks! So much amazingness! 


June 27, 2020

Finds 1295: Ninja Gaiden 3 for Famicom

I got this one! Ninja Gaiden 3 for the Famicom. I believe this is a really good version of the game and a lot easier than the NES version. I will have to see how different it is. I also have the bootleg version but I think that's more based on the NES version than Famicom. 


June 26, 2020

Finds 1294: Gunstar Heroes and Splatterhouse 2

Two gems that I was able to add at the same time. Guess how? A seller on ebay was selling them together! Once I got them, I opened them up of course because it was such a good deal, I had to check if they were legit. Finally, I was able to open them up and they were good to go. I'm so happy to add two amazing titles for my Genesis collection. The only complain is the little rip on the label of Splatterhouse 2, but I am not going to complain much especially for the price! 


June 25, 2020

Finds 1293: Metal Storm Collector's Edition

 I ended up preordering Metal Storm from Castlemania games because it's just a really cool re-release of the game. Believe it or not, I did bought Metal Storm at a convention like a couple of weeks before this was announced. That's alright, totally worth it! 


June 24, 2020

Finds 1292: The Only DOS book you'll ever need

So DOS is one language I've been learning so I can become a bigger user of DOS. The language is pretty awesome. I believe this will be quite helpful in the future projects I have involving old computers. 


June 23, 2020

Finds 1291: Strahl, Riot Zone, High Velocity, and Zelda a Link Between Worlds, Famicom Randoms

Here are so many goodies! Strahl is probably my rarest 3DO game now! High Velocity is an awesome racing game for the Saturn. Finally, got Zelda 3DS sequel! Riot Zone for the DUO! Lots of cool Famicom games as well! See? Lots of amazing additions! 


June 22, 2020

Finds 1290: Playstation 4 Additons and Jak and Daxter

Gotta take advantage of Gamestops Buy 2 get 2 Free! They are usually always good in order to add games to your collection. I think I did pretty well, right?


June 21, 2020

Finds 1289: Shadow Dancer for Sega Master System

This is Shadow Dance for the Sega Master System! This port is okay, but it doesn't beat the Genesis version. I still wanted this port just for the cover art! Just look at it! Scary! 


June 20, 2020

Finds 1288: GTA V for PS3

I finally got GTA 5! Yes, it's for the PS3 but totally the version I was going for. Now, I need to dig up my PS3 to see what all the fuss is about. 


June 19, 2020

Finds 1287: Atari 2600 Lot!

It's pretty cool when you win a cheap lot in order to add a bunch of Atari games! This lot was quite cheap and got me a bunch of doubles as well. I can't complain though! Atari is amazing. 

June 18, 2020

Finds 1286: Atari 5200 Additions!

Yup, now that I have an Atari 5200, I can get me some of these awesome games. Here they are! I already had Pacman though...

June 16, 2020

Finds 1284: Metal Slug 3 from Limited Run Games

So I've been picking these Limited Run Neo Geo games. It's totally worth collecting for the big box and goodies inside. I highly recommend it! This one is Metal Slug 3 and well, it's an amazing game. They release them once in a while so keep your eyes out for them! 


June 15, 2020

Finds 1283: Brother Printer at Thrift Store

I usually don't post printer pick ups but I barely get them so here it is. This is the Brother MFC-J4510DW and I picked it up for five bucks. After some tweaking to get the inject lenses to read, I was able to make it work. Now, it's my work printer which helps me print projects for my designs and schooling. Best five bucks I've spent on a printer! 


June 14, 2020

Finds 1282: Mega Man 2 PAL

Here is a game I've been wanting to add to my collection since forever! It's the pal version of Mega Man 2! I mainly got it because of the cover art! Isn't it hilarious??? Gotta love it! Gorgeous art! 


June 13, 2020

Finds 1281: Gauntlet for Sega Master System

This is Gauntlet by US Gold! It's for the Sega Master System and it's well Gauntlet! You can't go wrong with this series. Of course, the best way to game this one is with friends. So much fun! 


June 12, 2020

Finds 1280: Flea Market Additions , Stone Protectors, Shining in the Holy Ark, and More

 I got a little bit of everything. In a combination of the flea market, thrift store, and mail day, I think I did pretty good. 
 Here are some neat games! 
 I even got some action figures! Should I open them? The PS1 multitap is awesome too!
 Some random additions for DS and PC. 
Shining in the Holy Ark is a Saturn game I wanted for a while! Stoneprotectors was a game I used to play at my friends house. It's a beat 'em up! Also, another awesome SNES game! 

June 11, 2020

Finds 1279: Gain Ground, Bio Metal, Firepower 3000, Blades of Vengeance, and Armored Core 2

Got some new stuff! Blades of Vengeance is quite good. Firepower 3000 is neat as well as Bio Metal even though it's a tough as fuck shoot 'em up! Gain Ground is classic and Armored Core 2 is another classic game.


June 10, 2020

Finds 1278: Segaia for Sega Master System and Batman and Robin Adventures

Here is another amazing addition to the collection! Batman and Robin Adventures was yet another game I rented back in the day. It's a tough game, but so much fun! it's back in my collection! Also, I previously showed Segaia for the Genesis, well now I got the Sega Master System version. It's been a while since I gotten anything for the Master System so it's quite welcomed! 


June 09, 2020

Finds 1277: Sonic Advance 2 and Segaia

 Here are two neat games. Sonic Advance 2 is a lot of fun, still looking for part three box because guess what? Look at the photo below! Segaia is another wonderful shoot 'em up for the Genesis which is full of those gems. 
See? They sent me part 3 in a part 2 box! That's pretty funny but I'll take it.
