Finds 1161: Whomp 'Em and Rainbow Islands

By : Luis Zena
Here are two titles that I used to have and ended up selling years ago. A friend of mine sold them to me for a super duper great deal and I'm glad to have them back. I ended up beating Whomp 'em on a stream as well!

Finds 1160: Playstation SPH 1001, NES Games, NDS Games, and More!

By : Luis Zena
A bunch of good stuff! The thrift stores were nice to me on this day. The PS1 came with a bunch of cables. Do they even know what they're doing? Especially when a PS3 controller is included in the bunch... lets take a look!  
 Some NDS games! A few I don't have and a few I had cart only. 
 NDS Lite white! Another handheld for my collection. 
 NES is always full of good stuff and bad stuff !
 A strategy game for the PC. It's based on the civil war. 
The SPH 1001 model is the only model that has this!

Finds 1158: Power Strike and New Nintendo 2DS XL

By : Luis Zena
Power Strike is one of the few Sega Master System games that I've been wanting for a long time. I finally got it for a very fair price. It's a shoot 'em up that you could only get from Sega themselves... mail in order game... can you believe that? The other find is a new nintendo 2ds xl which I've picked up locally to be able to mod it in order to stream with it. I'm waiting for the R4 and with the help of some friends, I shall be able to do it! 

Finds 1157: Road Avenger, Shin Megami Tensei Repros, and Great Soccer!

By : Luis Zena
Various games for various consoles. Road Avenger is a FMV style game in which you have to make decisions as the movie is playing. Depending on your reaction, you'll live or die! It's a lot of fun! Great Soccer is just a simple soccer game for the Sega Master System and with the World Cup this year, it was only fair to add this to the collection. The Shin Megami Tensei games are translated repros! Been wanting to play through them. Eventually I will! So many games to play though! UGH!

Finds 1156: Amazing Additions! SCAT and Snow Brothers!

By : Luis Zena
This is a very epic set of pick ups for me. Both of these games are quite tough to find at a decent price. I was lucky enough to find a local collector that just wanted to get rid of them. Believe it or not, there are some more coming and they'll be better than these!

Finds 1155: Master of Darkness and Fantasy Zone

By : Luis Zena
Master of Darkness has been a game that I've been wanting to pick up for a long time. I finally scored a decent copy of it! It will be streamed on Halloween! It's a beautiful game! Fantasy Zone is just another classic game by Sega, this one for the Game Gear. 

Finds 1154: Deals from Gamestop, Believe it or not!

By : Luis Zena
Even though Gamestop is heading down the hole, it's no reason to get some deals while they're still around. They had a 4 for 20 deal on games of 9.99 and lower. Picked up four games and used the elite discount to end up paying 16 for all four. Now, that's a sweet deal! 

Finds 1153: Final Loot from Toys R Us!

By : Luis Zena
A bitter sweet end to the once toy giant. My final trip to the store was as sad as everyone else might have experienced when going there. Empty shelves and a shadow of its old self was left in the store. I still got some good shit! Q-bert figurine and a mini arcade of Burger Time. I suck at the game, but totally worth it. It's crazy that my final purchases there were of retro related items. You shall be missed Toys r Us! 

Finds 1152: Nintendo DSI Blue

By : Luis Zena
I never got in the DSI craze when it was released. Lets face it, Nintendo loves re-releasing a bunch of their handhelds a billion times with either a game theme model or just a minor upgrade. Worst of all, the public eats it up which is why they keep doing it. Not me! I wait a decade and find them at thrift stores for a fraction of the price. Now that's buying with power!

Finds 1151: PC Games and Cart World Series

By : Luis Zena
I am starting to pick up PC games in my outings. Some of them look interesting and are of classic games like Tetris and Star Wars. I did picked up a PS1 game in the bunch called Cart World Series. Early racing games for the PS1 are something else. Ever played Rally Cross?

Finds 1150: Loose Saturn Games, Shinobi Legions!

By : Luis Zena
I picked up this Saturn loose disc only lot on eBay only because of the Shinobi game as I didn't have it yet. I am glad I was able to get it for cheap. I don't really go for a complete in box set especially if the price is right. The other two games, I know I have already. Totally worth it! 

Finds 1147: Space Harrier for the 32X

By : Luis Zena
Here is Space Harrier for the 32X. By far, this is the closest almost perfect port of the arcade original which is why this game is worth something. I need to set up my 32X in order to play this one now. Totally worth it!

Finds 1146: The Adventures of Chatran for the Famicom Disk System

By : Luis Zena
This was the best photo for a feline related game. The Adventure of Chatran is a game that was released for the Famicom Disk System and it involves the adventures of a cat. It's just your average side scroller game but for feline lovers. Check it out, Mocha cat says so :p

A Little Goo Gone Can Go a Long Way!

By : Luis Zena
Usually finding games like this (left) is quite common when you hunt in the wild. I don't even know what was on that label but a little bit of Goo Gone and the label (right) is looking like new! Just be sure not to be too rough on it as it's still a label you are trying to clean. LOOT!

Finds 1145: Space Harrier and Space Harrier 2

By : Luis Zena
Two Harriers in one post. The first one is for the Turbo Grafx and it's a decent port of the arcade original. The second one was the sequel that even though is decent, it couldn't capture the charm of the first one. Either way, glad to have these two. 


Finds 1144: A little bit of everything! Space Harrier, Project Sylpheed, and More!

By : Luis Zena
Here is a lot of games for various consoles. These are usually my favorite type of pick ups. First, Project Sylpheed was recommended by a fellow instagrammer so I picked it up. The 7800 game wasn't recommended but found it in the wild and well 7800 games are hard to come by in the wild even if they aren't that valuable. I also got Space Harrier for the Sega Master System. Even though it's a butchered port, it's still a decent game. Bravoman was an impulse buy that ended up being a good one. Cratermaze is another one of those puzzle games that can suck you into it for hours. Good shit!
