Finds 1444: PC Classics! Duke Nukem 3D, Quake, OddWorld, and Others

I forgot to post about these games I found thrifting a couple of weeks ago. They are classics for the PC especially with Duke Nukem 3D and Quake. I know PC gamers will go crazy looking at these.

Finds 1443: Gamestop Sale Once Again! The last of it!

I went back and with 90 percent off, I went nuts! I even got a brand new Crash 4 game which was an excellent deal. A lot of games with no original cover so I think I will be placing them in a Folder with CD sleeves and some 3DS games that will be good for trading. Well, thanks for the great loot Gamestop!

Zdey the Game Project, a New NES Game!

Here is a pretty awesome new game that's currently getting funded here. The game looks very promising and it's already over halfway to its goal. I highly suggest you back it up if you like side scrollers. This game is one I will keep my eyes on. Be sure to visit their funding side in order to see more of it! I am always welcoming new games for old consoles. 


Finds 1442: Granada X for Genesis

Here is a new arrival, it's Granada X for the Sega Genesis. I have been eyeing this game for a while and finally found it for a very fair price. No, I didn't paid 24.99 for it as the sticker shows, just minus 10 bucks out of it. Another solid game for the Genesis.

Finds 1441: Space Channel 5 VR Edition!

Another Limited Run Games arrival. It's Space Channel 5 VR for the Playstation 4 VR. I really think I should get the VR headsets because I have accumulated quite a few VR games.... ufff!

Finds 1440: Finally Got an Atari 7800 with Games!

I was finally able to get an Atari 7800! It's been years of hunting for one at a decent price and I'm happy to announce that I finally got one. Of course, I got it with stuff missing but that stuff is on the way to me so we will see if everything is good to go. I think I did well buy paying 70 bucks for all of this! I even got the game that I wanted for the console, MS-Pacman! The library is really small for this console but with it, I complete the Atari Trilogy! Maybe I should go for an Atari ST, but I don't know yet. 

This is the beautiful 7800! Game on!

Finds 1439: Gamestop Closing Sale! Cadence of Hyrule and Others!

So another Gamestop is going under and that's where we collectors and gamers take advantage! I was able to save these games from whatever their future was. Overall, I was happy to get these at an amazing percentage of discount!!! I will be back to this store before it closes down! 


February 20, 2021

Finds 1438: Samurai Shodown Neogeo Collection for Switch! & Others!

Finally, some Limited Run Games are here! They are Samurai Shodown, Carrion, and Silent Bob and Jay Mall Brawl! Totally awesome additions! If you didn't preordered these, you will have to check eBay for the inflated prices, sorry...

Parachute by Friedpixels

So this is a really interesting port of Parachute for DOS. Of course, if you have a newer system, you will have to use DOSBOX on PC, Idos on Iphone, and  Magic DOS Box on Android. The game is pretty cool although I kind of want to place it on a floppy, label it and try it out on my older computers. I think it should work! It's a really interesting port, please click here to check out more info and videos on this one. 


Ads from the past 454: The Legend of Zelda (the first one)

This is wonderful art of the first game in the Zelda series. As many of you must know, the game was originally released in the Famicom Disk System. One thing you should know, the game was also released years later for the original Famicom. It's quite expensive too. Love the artwork as usual. 


A little WIP on Projects...

So I have been working on a lot of things lately, including building this arcade room for the turtles, and some other stuff with work and designs. I have some new releases coming for the shoppe too but the parts are taking long to arrive especially due to the storm and bad weather going around the entire country. Everything is going crazy so far. I will have lots of new things coming and back to work I go...


Finds 1437: Blockbuster VHS Tape, Just Dance 2017, and Others!

Here are some random things! Some VHS tapes! I only got the Blockbuster VHS because of the sleeve artwork. Just Dance 2017 is just for the Wiiu collection and I can never say no to Dr Mario! 


Finds 1436: PC Galore! Phantasmagoria 2 and Others!

Here is a big lot of PC games I found while thrifting. Apparently, a lot of people don't care much about PC games, which is good because I'll just take them all. I have a friend I'll be sending some of these to, he will release appreciate them. I was particularly happy about Phantasmagoria 2 which I will have to try it out once my office is finished it's remodeling!

New Additions to the Shoppe! Star Cruiser, Final Fight in Streets of Rage 2, Luigi in Sonic, and Raiden Trad Remastered

Here are some new additions which you can find here or by clicking on the Shop button on the top of the page. This time around I went and added a very obscure RPG that was translated called Star Cruiser. It's one of those games that takes a bit to get used to but it's quite good once you do. Definitely check that one out. Then, Final Fight meets Streets of Rage in this awesome beat 'em up. You can play as Final Fight characters in the Streets of Rage 2 world. It's quite satisfying! Luigi in Sonic is a very fun little hack where you play as Luigi! Why is he even in the Sonic world? Who knows! Raiden Trad is a decent shooter and this one I have has been remastered to look more like the arcade counterpart. This are four new gems to the shoppe and I have more to come for various systems. Thank you for visiting! 


Finds 1435: TMNT Super 7 Ultimates Wave 2

It's about time these got here. Wave 2 has been out for about two months I believe, and the place where I order them always takes a bit to send them. You know, I shouldn't be complaining because they always deliver and I don't get any nonsense about cancelling pre-orders and what not. Anyways, you can check them out here as you can still preorder waves 3 & 4. Anyways, the figures are just amazing! This are a reworked series from the original line in the late 80s and are just fantastic. This time around, we got Leonardo, Mutagen Man, Shredder, and Bebop. I'm glad they are doing some of the figures that are a little less known such as Mutagen Man and honestly, they haven't been released until now. Lets take a look at each figure. 

Shredder comes with an exchangeable head which mimics the original release of the figure which came with the eyebrows painted on the helmet side which is crazy but funny. He also comes with so many accessories which is the norm for the Super 7 TMNT Ultimates line. Definitely happy with this one.

A lesser popular figure is Mutagen Man. I know this one has probably been released in the newer cartoons line but the classic one has never been re-released and remade like this! It comes with lots of accessories and it's just an amazing figure altogether. 

The second brother gets released with Leonardo! Of course, it has the look of the vintage line but it also came with an exchangeable head! You can keep the vintage head on or put a more serious head instead. As usual, it comes with tons of accessories including the turtle com and slice of pizza. I'm glad to have the second one. Mikey is coming in the next wave!

Now this Bebop is gigantic! What an amazing figure and as with Shredder it comes with the original head from the first line of series. Yes, his head was pink! Of course, you can exchange it to the other alternative head which is great as it gives collectors a chance to change it if they don't like the pink head. It comes with tons of accessories and it's just a massive figure! Can't wait for Rocksteady in the next wave!

What an amazing line this is!

New Additions! Fix-it Felix, Darius 2, and Kirby in Sonic the Hedgehog!

Here are three new additions to the shoppe. I picked these as they are definitely interesting. I mean the port of Fix it Felix jr is pretty awesome and even contains voice samples from the movie. Darius 2 is a pretty cool shoot ‘em up by Taito, and Kirby in Sonic the Hedgehog is a really cool hack in which you play as Kirby in the world of Sonic. Definitely check them out by clicking here, or click on the Shop tab on the top of the page. Thank you, there are tons of things that are coming this week!
