PlayStation Classic 128GB Retro Console Build & Power Mod!

This is probably the biggest and most useful Playstation mini pack to mod your mini console which was a freaking joke. Anyways, you can download it from the Arcade Punks page by clicking here. There is also a video on how to install it which helps a lot. This is one mini console that needed a mod real bad. It was just a horrible release. This will make it a dream machine with thousands of games. Be sure to download the 128gb latest pack! 


Finds 1349: PS Vita Lot! Dungeon Hunter , Code Realize, Sword Art Online, and More!

I ordered some games online through and was surprised at how they delivered. The games are in great shape and one was even sealed even though I ordered it used. That was definitely an amazing addition to the collection. It's getting hard to find Vita games so I'm definitely happy with these. 
Sword Art Online!

Dungeon Hunter Alliance

Realize game! 

Code Realize! 


Finds 1348: Carmageddon, Lock's Quest, South Park, and The Last of US Remastered

So here is another lot of games for PS4. I highly recommend you start hunting these down as the PS5 is out and we will be seeing less of these more and more. The same goes for PS3! Overall, I liked these solid entries and I believe these were buy 2 get 2 free. You can't beat these deals especially since they come with their original box art. I really hate the Gamestop's just sucks ass!

CLOCKWORK AQUARIO Being Released after 27 years! The lost Arcade Game!

This lost game is finally getting a release in physical form! It's one very few people ever heard of but it's been talked about lately and the day is finally here. This game is being released in a collector's edition as well as a regular version. A little info about this game, the game was completed and ready to released but was held off because it was a 2D platformer and thought it would be dated for the time. We are talking 1992 here! it's pretty crazy to think that but one has to think that Arcade machines were more advanced than consoles at that time. 3D was just starting to take off as well. Overall, I highly recommend you get a copy. Click here and see if there are any left! GO NOW!


Finds 1347: The Secret of Monkey Island, Mario and Software!

It's Secret of Monkey Island for the Sega CD! This is actually a re-release of the game to work on the Sega CD! it's really cool that Limited Run Games did this and hopefully this will open up to other games especially the ones that are hard to find. I also got some thrift store software along with a Super Mario Bros Wii CD for the Wii. Awesome stuff indeed! 


Finds 1346: Sega Saturn Memory Card

This is a needed Memory Card for the Saturn. You have to get all the memory cards that you can! I think this one has more memory than others which will be helpful for those RPG saves. 


November 28, 2020


This is an epic addition to the collection. To have a replica of the TMNT 4 player arcade game is pretty awesome. Believe it or not, I found room for it! It's an amazing experience! A great machine to have with friends. 


Finds 1344: Spy Hunter Mini Cab

This is a really cool little arcade cabinet. I have started to collect them so it's really cool having them. I will try to create a little arcade room in order to put them all in as I'm getting a bunch! Maybe I should make that building two floors! 


November 27, 2020

Finds 1343: the C64 Mini !

This is the C64 mini! It's a mini console of the Commodore 64. It comes with 64 games, but the best part is that you can actually hack it and add your own! It definitely could use more work as the keyboard doesn't even work, it's only for showing purposes. The controller though is decent. A good attempt but nothing really amazing. 


Finds 1342: Mega Cheap 3DS Games!

Always check your local Walmart for clearance games! This was the case! Duck Dynasty and Legend of Korra were cents! The rest were quite cheap! I think the most I paid for was 12 dollars for the Zelda game. It was a great day to add some missing 3DS games.

Finds 1341: Amazing Gamestop Finds! Job Simulator, Psikyo Shooting Stars, Valfaris, and Gun Gun Pixies

Gamestop really had some amazing deals this time around. Not only did I found a really rare game called Job Simulator, but I also picked up some other hard to find games such as Psikyo and Gun Gun Pixies. Valfaris is a pretty awesome retro style game. Overall, a really good haul at good old Gamestop. 
Gun Gun Pixies with cuteness overhaul! 
A very hard to find game in physical form that is...

I didn't even know this game was released over here. I have the three volumes of the Japanese releases. 

A very cool game Valfaris which plays like's really cool. 


Ads from the Past 451: Gameboy Light

This is an advertising that showcases the beautiful Gameboy Light. Of course, this was a big deal back then as there was nothing like it. Nowadays, we have the LCD light mods and what not, but back then this was state of the art. I have one in my collection! It looks beautiful! 


Finds 1340: Limited Run Super Combo Release 003

Here is release 003 of the Neo Geo series. It's called Super Combo which comes with two games which are SAVAGE REIGN and KIZUNA ENCOUNTER. They are really good weapon fighting games and a decent addition to fighting game fanatics. This one arrived after release number 004 which is kinda shocking... get it right Limited Run Games!


Finds 1339: ADK Limited Run Games Neo Geo 004 and Pirate Games

Here is a new Limited Run Release! It's the ADK Limited Run Games release number 004 from the Neo Geo line. I am really focusing on this line and so far so good! It comes with multiple games although there is one in particular that I really was curious about which is Twinkle Sprites which is really cute! Who doesn't love cute games? Anyways, I also got a couple of bootleg games on eBay. They were super cheap and some I don't have to more addition to the collection. 


November 25, 2020

Finds 1338: Technocop Box and Rise of the Triad

Here are a couple of games. One of them is the box for Technocop as I already have the cart somewhere. Then, Rise of the Triad is a pretty awesome game that I was never able to play back in the day. For some reason, mostly probably because of ram and graphics, I couldn't play it in my old computer. I did test it out on one of my older windows 98 computers and it works. I finally got to play it after so many years. Before then, I only had the screen shots to look at. Those were the days...


November 24, 2020

Finds 1337: Sega Genesis First Edition!

I picked this up locally which was a gambled as I didn't know the model number for this console. I was looking for a particular one and was lucky this time around.

After checking the model number, I was pleased to see that it's a first edition one. This one is apparently the best version of the console. I already have one so this is an extra one. 


November 23, 2020

Finds 1336: Valis for Genesis

I finally got this little gem. It's a side scroller in which you play as a school girl who owns the sword of Valis! She kicks ass! I highly recommend it. 


November 22, 2020

Finds 1335: Deep Duck Trouble for Game Gear

This is a beautiful addition to the collection! Not only is this an amazing game, it's nice and sealed. This game was also released for the Sega Master System and plays quite similar. I already have this game in loose form but definitely loving the boxed version, it was needed! Love the artwork. 


November 21, 2020

Finds 1334: Nintendo Imports Locally!

So my re-seller friend had some imports that I liked and he gave me a good deal on them. There are some familiar faces on there including One Piece, Super Mario Kart, Yoshi, Yoshi's Cookie, and even Lufia 2. There is also a Balloon Fight from Club Nintendo from back in the day. it's really neat stuff but mostly good for displaying due to the more appealing art that these games have. 


November 20, 2020

Finds 1333: Atomic Runner for Genesis! Don't forget to rewind the tape!

Here is a pretty awesome game that's actually really tough but fun at the same time. You are this guy name Chelnov which needs to run and run. Along the way are obstacles and enemies! You'll have to use all of your skills for this one. 

Don't forget to rewind the tape or be sure to pay the 2.00 fee! I found this hilarious honestly...
