    if I actually fill this out it will look intimidating
  1. Finally came across a speak n spell today, electronic and chipmusicians loved sampling this around the turn of the decade and I've been looking for one since (and they used to be all over thrifts before I ever looked for them in the mid 2000s). I've never heard of Koudelka but apparently it's a nice jrpg, despite the case falling apart it had all 4 discs.
  2. Well, that sounds like that'd be pretty sweet to try, but double check the second pic, I won't be trying them any time soon
  3. Found a star fox twofer today... Well, not quite what I was expecting...
  4. Haven't had a haul posted here in a while since it seems where I moved is pretty dry, but I finally got a nice haul today from one store, a bunch of random games I've never heard of which is probably my favorite type to find. Bit of a surprise finding so much since there's two retro game stores in town so this person could have easily sold them to those. Othello was from another store where there were a bunch of electronic poker type games but this was the only one that was interesting to me. Aside from the big names the only games I actually know in this stack are the M+Ms game which I actually have nostalgia with of the PC version, and Kickle Cubicle due to a Deprecation Guild song.
  5. First thrift finds this year, I was surprised I didn't already own Boom Blox considering how much I've played it before.
  6. Got some clearance items, I've been finding popping the joycons on and off the switch to be annoying so hopefully this is better.
  7. Found a rather large mario plush, two cool looking xbox exclusives (I don't know whether outrun 2 is actually good or not though), and a gameport to usb adapter among other things today
  8. A virtua cop version actually sounds pretty sweet, the independence day movie theme of this one put me off pretty hard actually, I almost passed on it because of it. Virtua cop on the other hand, would fit in with all the old and new "mini-arcade" things.
  9. Haven't been able to hit up everywhere again recently but this is from what I have been able to go to. The tiger LCD game's light gun needed a bunch of battery leakage cleaned and seems to only halfway work still. The Call of Duty series apparently had a very unique and interesting control scheme on Wii so it'll be nice to try it out finally.
  10. If you had asked me just a few months ago I would have said no but after running into a few of these recently I am actually quite liking them, thees a bit of charm to them that late 90's/early 00's lcd games I'm used to seeing don't have.
  11. Went around town for the first time in a while and found lil lcd game, gba ( although I forgot to check for a battery cover) , a boxed pico game off all things. The magazines are early 90's PC catalogs.
  12. I can recommend using OBS studio or AmarecTV for capture, OBS is a bit more modern and will let you livestream if you're interested in that, whilst AmarecTV has a ton of options relevant to retro gaming, such as a bunch of deinterlacing options. Personally I use yadifx2 deinterlacing in OBS when recording consoles from composite. Also a word of warning on the easycap if you are using s-video, the s-video input may not actually be s-video but just s-video converted to composite, my particular easycap model does this. It's pretty easy to tell since it'll look like a mess.
  13. Since no one else has mentioned it, I'd add Moon Patrol to the list. Starmaster and Midnight Magic are the other games that immediately come to mind for me.
  14. Got a few things making one last thrift run before I move away, the nintendo drawer is a NES drawer system with the top being to controllers and a zapper. The CD drawer is pretty slick looking I think, jewel cases slide into it and have a lever on the side holding them in. The megaracer reminds me of the arkanoid controllers for ps1 somewhat. The thing thats hard to see is a star wars TV game.
