Nice.  Clean her up and play some games. Btw, do the serial numbers match (box and console).

Picked up this Berzerk from a rural collector for 750. Super nice guy, it's always fun to meet fellow arcade guys. BTW, I didn't do that MK conversion. I claim no responsibility over that crooked control panel haha.

Grabbed a dirty,  but fairly mint boxed 7800 for pretty cheap off of ebay.  The seller listed it as "pole position game". Ironically,  it didn't come with pile position.

Why is there a three prong power cord in the box?

Three or so years ago I sold my SuperGrafx, well traded it, for a X68030 Compact. Not bad if I say so myself but man have I missed that console. $ouch on YAJP/StoneAgeGamer later and I have another PC Engine! You'd think I'd have realized how easily I can get one of these sooner being that I constantly import old Japanese computers...

 

(I know that there's an updated SSDS3 out which does digital video plus extra but after owning a SuperGrafx I don't mind "missing out" on it. The games were nice but I can play a better version of the only one I cared about on said X68k, this will be going via Composite no matter what, and I could just get a MiSTer for FPGA core shenanigans. Maybe I'll consider upgrading later down the line when I don't have sit in a waitlist.)

I got the Vita ports of the 3 other Flowers games over the past few days, with summer arriving on some day that I forgot (probably Thursday, but maybe it was Friday) and autumn and winter showed up today. I managed to get all of them factory sealed, the Vita-exclusive preorder bonus drama CDs that I was missing, the other drama CD directly from Innocent Grey (which also showed up today), and paid way too much money for the fanbook for spring (which showed up 6 or 7 days ago, but I forgot), so now I have all of that.

 

I only took a picture of the games, though, since it would be annoying to try to photograph everything together. I waited far too long to get these, and they will likely be the last Vita games that I will ever buy (and that makes me quite sad because I always loved the Vita). They may not be, as I've been considering getting Sakaagari Hurricane Portable and Japanese copies of Steins;Gate and Steins;Gate 0, but for now, this is likely where my Vita collection ends.

I've been having memory card problems with my Vita starting today, sadly, so I probably need to figure something out or use my other memory card. That's why it's here on my desk, as I've been attempting to transfer files to and from my PC all day, sometimes unsuccessfully. Rescued the important stuff, so no loss if this memory card dies completely.

You'd have to ask the guy who sold it

When a copy of 1943 Kai for PC Engine popped up for only $50 on Ebay I knew I had to grab it...

The London retro market was this weekend, for the first time since Rona-chan joined us.

 

Under normal circumstances, it is packed wall-to-wall with classic hardware, games, and retro-nerds.  This time around it was much smaller but still interesting.

 

The only pickup I got was:

Much more enjoyable on the Power Base Converter than on the Switch!

New and sealed in box.  I love the look of this!

I posted the Cannon Man a few weeks ago,  but that’s by far my most exciting piece.

An Intellivision lot that I made an offer on and it was surprisingly accepted. Includes at least Thin Ice & Learning Fun 1.

Nice! You got me beat on the Flip R Cades. Still need Blue Print!

 

My WoW is equally beat (but still sealed on the inside with all the pieces still in the factory bags). I've always wondered how it plays. My Pooyan and Tutankham are also sealed so haven't been able to play those either!

Blue Print was a bear to find.   A couple of mine are sealed, but I can’t recall which ones.

I finally have a Dreamcast again after selling mine years ago! I sold some Pokemon cards at my local game store and I bought the system and the two SNES games with store credit because it paid more.

I didn't get any Dreamcast games there because they only had two and I didn't want either of them. Also grabbed the first Adventure Island from a different store. It needs cleaning badly so I hope it works. 

 

UPDATE: It took a good amount of cleaning and some fiddling with my NES but Adventure Island does work.

Stellar Track is in my Top 5 Atari 2600 games. Nice!

I did not know that game was an adaptation of the computer Star Trek game.  Looking at the game art, it seems rather clear what the inspiration of the game is and the play on words of the title.  Being a Star Trek fan, I had to get it.  :)
