  1. Yet Another Game Haul Post....

    Sorry to do it to you again guys, but I have another photoblog that highlights just how cool retro hunting in Japan is. I know I've said it before that Japan is starting to dry up for retro gear (at least near where I live), and that still applies - even so, you just don't get this kind of luck anywhere else in the world!

    So what gear do we have today then....

    Before I get into that, I have to say that the post today is brought to you by a pretty horrible head ...

  2. Another Retro Haul Post

    Due to time being in short supply for the past four months or so, I haven't been able to really get out there and hunt like I used to. I was getting withdrawals bad, so luckily, the past week or two I have had time to get out there and see what's been on offer.

  5. Hard-Off Road Trip - City to City Retro hunting!

    As most of us retro gamers know - mainly due to the plethora of videos on the web these days - shopping for retro gear in Japan can be amazing. Hard-Off (and of course Comp-Off, Book-Off, and House-Off) are some of the best resources for us retro hoarders - that are easily accessible that is.
