By : Luis Zena
Well I only have two weeks left before the trip and a lot to do. I probably won't buy many games before I leave because I have to spend the money in other stuff. I also found out the owner of my job is leaving for a week so I will probably won't get much sleep before I go. I'll keep you guys posted though. Wish me luck!

Finds 072: Four PS1 Titles

By : Luis Zena
Hello there it's me FamicomFreak and it's time for another set of finds! I returned Marvel vs Capcom(sob sob) and got these four titles instead. The best part of all is that I got two and the two others were free! Even better, I only used up eight bucks out of the fifteen I spent for Marvel vs Capcom so I have store credit left for my next trip there. That's about it. Enjoy the photos!

Gradually making a list in Backloggery...

By : Luis Zena
Well I decided to resume my collection list and started adding my recent additions into my Backloggery account. I think every time I have a new find, I'll add them to the list I have in Backloggery and therefore start building up a master list of all the games I have. Of course, I missed a lot of the games in the past four years but I'll start adding those little by little. I think it's the only way for me to have an updated list of my games and also keep count as well. Enjoy the link and let me know what you think.


p.s. The link is on the right side in the links section of this blog for future visits.

Some news.....Brother in hospital

By : Luis Zena
Well the past weekend wasn't the most interesting one but the most tiring nonetheless. My brother had to go to the hospital because he had stones in one of his intestines. Of course, the doc didn't found out about that until a couple of days later so he was in a lot of pain until yesterday. I went to visit him and he feels fine so there is nothing to worry about. I hope he recovers 100 percent so we can put all of this behind us. Well that's about it, cya later!

No Flea Market Today

By : Luis Zena
Well the weather wasn't good enough to hit the flea market. We have been having rain all week so the forecast for today wasn't good. I hope that in the next couple of weeks things will improve but I'll be busy with other stuff like preparing for my trip that I might not be able to go. So that's it, until next time.

Man I have been leveling up and hanging around the dungeons for the past two hours! I just got to save my game a couple of minutes ago. This RPG is just how I like it, simple and fun. Well I hope some of you try it out.

Finds 069: Xbox Titles and others

By : Luis Zena
Well I decided to visit the local Play n Trade and I was finally able to fill out the card with every used game purchase. Next time I go to Play n Trade I will be able to get Castlevania Symphony of the Night but that is only if they still have it for sale. With the 10 dollar credit I should be able to get it for 8.90 because of the 10 percent discount. That's a great price for Castlevania. I also saw that they had Marvel Vs Capcom for ps1 so I might pick that one up since it's another rare title. Anyways, I took advantage of the buy 2 get 2 free on used games and got four more games. This time around most of them were xbox titles. I was able to find some titles suggested by a friend of mine so I can't wait to try them out. I also got two ps1 titles that were pretty cheap and RPGs. One last find was in Target were they had two copies of Gauntlet and Rampart 2 in 1 title for two dollars so I picked those up. Well, that's about it, enjoy the photos.

People collect just about everything

By : Luis Zena
So the other day I was in the local goodwill and of course I wasn't able to find anything decent so I decided to check out the books section. So I got there and there was this lady with a notebook checking out the books. I was curious of what she was doing since she was writing down a lot of info into her notebook. She saw I was looking at her and said "I collect children s book" and I was like "Oh that's really kewl". It's amazing that people can find a hobby with pretty much anything. I'm also wondering where could she find a master list for all children s books so that she can check off which ones she finds. It's interesting to find people like that you know....

Alexis Lalas is unveiled!

By : Luis Zena
So like I said in my other finds post that I didn't know who this Lalas fellow was. I finally did some research and found out that Lalas is a defender for the US national team from the early nineties. I still don't know why he was picked for the cover of this game but at least I know who he is now. He works for the L.A. Galaxy soccer team nowadays..... Well that's about it, always nice to learn some new things right? Cya later!

P.S. if you want more info just google "Alexis Lalas". His wikipedia has a lot of interesting info.


He looks like Jesus!

A couple more weeks

By : Luis Zena
Well the boss called last night to see how things are going and instead of coming back this Sunday he is going to be on vacation for an extra week. Everyone took it real bad except me. I was kinda of laughing about it since I had a feeling he was going to do that. So I will be for another week with no life coming and going to this business but I don't mind since the money is pretty good. Well I'll probably hit the thrift store this Friday and have some new finds to show you guys! Stay tuned!

Finds 064: Azure Dreams(PSX) and more!

By : Luis Zena
Alright so I was finally able to update my newest finds after a long week of work. I was able to also take photos but haven't tested all of them. Anyways, I found another copy of Earth Worm Jim for the Genesis so I picked it up after all it was only ninety five cents. I also picked up a Genesis game called Race Drivin'(go figure what it's about) but that's about it. The lady did gave me advice to come early because people come asking for the games in the early morning. I'll be able to do that after this week finally!

I also stopped at the local Play n Trade and decided to check out their psx games and well ended up finding some kewl stuff including Azure Dreams(PSX RPG) and Umjammer Lammy(Music PSX Game). I was very happy with these finds but the only problem with them is that they were disc only but for the prices they were a steal each(8 bucks each). Anyways, I also picked up some soccer games like FIFA 98 which I used to play to death back in the day and some weird soccer games I have never heard of like Viva Soccer and Alexi Lalas International Soccer(who is Alexi Lalas anyways...) But yeah that's about it for my finds. I'll be able to pick up more stuff in the next couple of weeks and maybe a future Flea Market trip might be coming up. Cya later
