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! 



Game-bit of the day 962: Turbo Outrun (PC)

By : Luis Zena
Another PC port by Sega. They really loved doing these back in the day. Unfortunately, you will probably not have much fun with this one. That's ok, it still makes a decent effort into giving you the arcade action at home! 

Game-bit of the day 960: Number Munchers (PC)

By : Luis Zena

This game I played when I was like 7 years old back in school. It was so much fun, I actually played it on an old IBM computer with a chrono display. It was so much fun! Relive your childhood with this one.

Game-bit of the day 959: Warrior Dragon (PC)

By : Luis Zena
This is a Dragon Warrior clone for the PC. The creator made the main character a dragon and switched the title ! Ingenious! The game plays like the classic Dragon Warrior game and contains lots of wonderful play mechanics. It's a classic RPG to the fullest. A must play!
