Sorry for the delays....

By : famicomfreak

Life has been doing a 360 on me so I haven't been able to post much. I've been too tired and just too busy to do anything here for the meantime. The blog is not dead though! I shall return with more updates and news than ever! Also, more loot!

Mega Man 11 Announced! Late 2018 Release!

By : famicomfreak
Shocking news from Capcom arrived today with the announcement of Mega Man 11 for multiple consoles. It was quite a surprised as many thought that Capcom had left the series behind and moved on to other things. The game returns and looks quite nice. They aren't doing the retro NES style look anymore, but it feels like what a game would look like for the PS Vita or PSP. It reminds me somewhat of Mega Man 8 but with improved graphics. I guess we will see how well this game will be received in the future. Also, the Mega Man X Collection was announced which is a welcomed collection to have! I can't wait! Now I must beat Mega Man 9 and 10. I'm so behind!

King of 94 - NHL 94 Tournament in Vegas

By : famicomfreak
This is an event that happened in Vegas this past 30th of September and thought it was neat to mention it. The grand prize was 10k so that's nothing to sleep over for. As many fans of the NHL series have said it before, NHL 94 is by far the best NHL game ever released and therefore still has a huge fan base to this day. Move over NHL 2017, this is the real deal! The tournament was separated into two groups, one for Nintendo and another of Sega. E-sports lives on even in retro gaming!

Finds 1092: Popful Mail for Super Famicom

By : famicomfreak
Popful Mail for the Super Famicom! What a wonderful game it is! The game was released over here for the Sega CD only. It's quite expensive and makes me wish they released the Super Famicom version over here. That's a shame! 

Finds 1091: Atari and 3DO Mystery Box!

By : famicomfreak
A local pick up ended in a pretty awesome treasure hunt! I picked up this box of goodies so lets cut to the chase and see what's in it! 

 We start off with Atari games. Lots of them that I don't have! 
 and more!
 and more more more!
 When will this stop?
 That's a lot of loot! hey Karateka! 
 Ok, the last of them! 
 Now it's 3DOs time! These are all the games! Total awesomeness! 

The console itself! The controllers are different shape so hmmmm weird! 

Finds 1090: Gamepro Issue 1

By : famicomfreak
This is the first ever issue of Gamepro. It's a magazine I grew up reading for the most part. Their issues were massive but that was due to the endless advertising pages it came packed with. I believe there were more pages on advertising than the issue itself. Nevertheless, I picked up this issue for quite cheap and it's definitely worth a read through. 

Game-bit of the day 865: Nintendo 64 Console

By : famicomfreak
So this is the Nintendo 64. Isn't it awesome? It's actually one of my least favorite consoles by Nintendo as the third party support was horrid, but it still had some pretty awesome games. By Nintendo of course....

Finds 1086: Bubble Bobble, Adventure Island 2, and Battle Unit Zeoth

By : famicomfreak
Three wonderful pick ups! I finally got Bubble Bobble for a very fair price. I wanted the game for a long time but I wanted it box. I pretty much paid the price of a loose cart for this copy, I know, I'm good! Adventure Island 2 is my favorite Island game so I had to get the box for it. I already had the game. This box cost me more than Bubble Bobble! Go figure! Then, Game Chasers recommendation of Battle Unit Zeoth was all I needed to get it.

Finds 1085: The Flea Market Still Bears Fruit NES and Star Saga One!

By : famicomfreak
I don't usually hit the flea market as I'm not hopeful on finding loot in it but it's fun once in a while. I was able to find this minty NES with Mario 3 in there for a decent price. I could not reject it! Also, picked up Star Saga One which is a heavy game with a huge manual and one big floppy disk. I don't even want to find out how to play it, it requires a degree on star voyage!

Finds 1084: Dark Magician Girl and Action 52

By : famicomfreak
A couple of awesome pick ups! First, some Yugioh love with Dark Magician Girl and other cards. The big pick up though is Action 52 for the Sega Genesis. I thought I might add this crappy game for the collection. Good idea huh?
