Finds 1211: Toki Retrollector Edition

By : famicomfreak
I remember Toki for the Genesis and to know that there was a remake of some sort being released, well, it was totally worth the pick up! This is the Retrollector edition which comes with tons of goodies! 


Finds 1210: Kikikaikai & Gunvolt Striker Pack

By : famicomfreak
Kikikaikai for the PC Engine is a very hard game, reminds me a lot of the SNES version just not as expensive even though it's still kinda expensive. Gunvolt Striker Pack is a set of two games in one. i thought it was very appealing and hey two for the price of one. 



Finds 1209: Nintendo Switch Galore! Four Titles!

By : famicomfreak
Here are four titles for the Nintendo Switch. I've been wanting to add more to the Switch since I first got it and I think these will do! Gotta take advantage of the deals! Street Fighter Anniversary Collection, Cave Story, Penny Punching Princess, and Monster Boy!


Finds 1208: Red Alert and Sherlock Homes as Gift!

By : famicomfreak
Two games in one post! This is a funny story, the seller took a little longer to ship Red Alert so he included Sherlock Homes as a gift for being sent out late. You bet I gave him five stars and will definitely buy from him again! Sellers like these are rare! 


Finds 1207: Ys 1 & 2 for the Turbografx CD

By : famicomfreak

This is an essential game to have for the Turbografx CD and believe me, there aren't that many games for the CD add-on in the USA but if you are going to get some, this is one of the games you should definitely pick up. Try getting part 3 next although it's a little pricey!

Bootleg Turtles Acquired~!

By : famicomfreak
So that small set of wacky looking turtles is a set in which I totally forgot about till I did a search for bootleg turtles on eBay. I remember having the bootleg Leonardo and destroying the action figure in a matter of a week. Yes, they are quite fragile so can't really play war with them. So, going back to eBay I saw a seller selling the whole set which I jumped one. Apparently, he has a lot of sets of them so if you are looking for them, just search Heroes of the World Fighter and you'll see them show up!


Finds 1206: Gradius 2 for the PC Engine Super CD

By : famicomfreak
Now that I have a PC Engine with CD I can play all these games that came out for it. There are tons of them so I will be adding them little by little to the collection especially some of my favorite ones like Gradius 2. I played this one for the Famicom and totally loved it! This version is just as good except with a more arcade feel and CD quality music of course. 

Finds 1205: Dracula X PCE Works, Psikyo Vol 2, and Others

By : famicomfreak
More Limited Run releases as well as Mercs for the Sega Master System. I think Mercs is a decent port although I've played the Genesis version which is superior. Psikyo Volume 2 puts another set of wonderful games into the Switch. Finally, PCE Works released a very special edition of Dracula X for the PC Engine/ Turbo Grafx CD with both Japanese and English version of the game as well as some extras! 

Finds 1204: Fighting Street and Salt and Sanctuary

By : famicomfreak

I had to get Fighting Street because it was mainly a must have for the funny voice acting. The gameplay is just horrible but hey this is the original Street Fighter and one of the few ways to play it on a console, if anything, the only way other than in old PCs. Salt and Sanctuary is another one of those nifty Limited Run releases. They are always releasing lots of unique games. 

Still alive!~~~~ Don't go anywhere!

By : famicomfreak

It's been a while since I have posted anything on here but believe me, I am still here! I have just had big changes in my life so it lead to being absent from here bu you know what? I am getting back into everything I love including retro gaming. Little by little, I am gaining my powers back! Anyways, I will be posting here more often but not as often as years ago. Just a heads up that I am still alive! I will have more loot coming in the coming weeks as it's a little backed up! I might actually get some new loot today! Lets see how it goes!

Finds 1203: Prince of Persia for Turbografx and Super System Card

By : famicomfreak
Here is a pretty awesome game with a hilarious cut-scene. Prince of Persia is a classic game that introduced a very precise type of gameplay which made it extremely replayable. Of course, it needed the Super System Card in order to play on the console. It's one of the many additions that are coming in the future. 


Finds 1202: Enter PC Engine Duo, an Exquisite Console!

By : famicomfreak
I finally got this console. It's one that I've been wanting for a long time. This is the PC Engine Duo and one of the best features of it was that it was modded to play Turbografx cards. It also plays Turbografx CD games without the need for a region lock. This is an all in one console! I have lots of games coming and I already got some goodies coming. This is another step in having a decent collection. 


Finds 1201: Prince of Persia 3D, Bastion, PC Engine disc and card, and Exile from Limited Run Games!

By : famicomfreak
Got some stuff at my new home. Prince of Persia 3D is a very interesting title that didn't got any love and I honestly can see why. I also got some PC engine CD and Card. Finally, some PS4 limited run games! They are definitely unique! 


Finds 1200: Loot is always coming! LOOT!

By : famicomfreak
Here is a very neat lot of stuff. Like, it's just a little bit of everything. Some Wii games and Some PS3 games. It's always great when you run into all of these things. More stuff to come! Lets get back to work! 


I Moved and Here is My View

By : famicomfreak

Finds 1199: Spanish Magazines are just Epic!

By : famicomfreak
Here are some awesome magazines given to me by a friend that ended up moving away. They are in Spanish and have all these funny remarks with the translation. Totally worth a read through. This is how we got our cheat codes back in the day.

Finds 1198: Slain Back from Hell for PS4, Unique Game !

By : famicomfreak
Here is a very interesting game which I was introduced thanks to Game Sack. I had no choice but to import it from Europe. It will probably be a long time before I can get around to try it out. Maybe when PS5 is out.... who knows...

Finds 1197: Saturday Morning RPG, Antiquia Lost, and Cosmic Star Heroine

By : famicomfreak
Here are some limited run releases! Saturday Morning RPG was one that eluded me when it was released for PS4 years ago by Limited Run Games. Not this time around, although it would've been great to have the collector's edition but funds won't allow that. Regardless what it is, I am glad to have it for the Switch! I also picked up a couple of other games like Antiquia Lost and Cosmic Star Heroine. Check them out and find them if you can as they are unique games.

Finds 1196: Big Trouble in Little China and Others

By : famicomfreak
Here are some random additions. The movie is not game related but an addition I've been told I must add to my movie collection which is not that big at all. Maybe I'll start a VHS collection soon enough. I also got two PC compilations of games. Nothing crazy.... 

Finds 1195: Psikyo Collection Vol 1 for Nintendo Switch

By : famicomfreak
A new finding arrived but what is it? It's a collection of Shoot 'em ups for the Nintendo Switch. It's very unique and unfortunately hasn't been released here in the States. Nevertheless, this is why we import. In this collection you have the following games:
Strikers
1945
SOL Divide
Samurai Aces

Some More WIP

By : famicomfreak


So to keep updated with what I have been working on is just more work and more assignments. I have been brainstorming new ideas on what to do about this blog. It's a pretty old blog so maybe shut it down and archive it? Then again, there is still a lot left to do about retro gaming and my collecting days aren't over anytime soon. I will have to figure something out! Game on!

New Projects on the Horizon

By : famicomfreak


I just wanted to update you guys the few of you that still visit this blog that I am still working on moving into my new home. Things are quite difficult and slow pace so it'll take a little longer to get settled in. I am almost done with my room and some other home projects so after that, it's time for the office. That's where I'll be doing all of my blogging work and new photography and drawing projects. I can't wait but with a full time job, a part time job, and school there will be some time before I can get back to normal. Stay tuned.
