Restocks galore to equally delight bargain bin rummagers and high-end collectors

 Back to our roots this week with a trove of #retrogames back in stock from the humble #Famicom#PCEngine#SuperFamicom#MegaDrive,  #Playstation#Saturn#Dreamcast#PS2#GameCube, right through to the #PS3

Bit late for #StarWars Day, but gamers of a certain vintage will lap up #Valis#DragonQuest I&II, #SonicSpinball#Dodonpachi#DynamiteDeka#SegaGaga#SilentHill#MetalGearSolid  and #Castlevania. Happy Genki Gaming.

Blast Away January Blues


Plenty of Egrets to start 2023 as the Egret II Mini comes with the SD card of Arcade Memories Volume One adding more fab retro delights to the roster (and available as a stand alone SD card for those who already own the Egret.)
Budget arrivals on #PS4 include Sifu: Beautiful neon signs light up the setting, Atomicrops, Metal Dogs & Final Vendetta a #FinalFight tribute with gritty, urban decay setting and bashed up cars, complete with ladies in thigh length boots that kick to kill.
Bargain basement on the #NintendoSwitch includes Warhammer, Override 2, Cris Tales & Indigo 7:  Funky, colourful and vibrant graphics bring the indie band and love quest elements of this devilishly simple puzzle game to life.

Wholesome Retro Restocks

 Genki Greetings.

Retro restocks galore this week: all coming with a big 'Sizzler' brand stamp from fellow gamers which have bought them previously. Playstation shooters in Shienryu, Choaniki and G Darius (with most honourable mention to The Firemen 2), PS2 compilations in Taito Memories, proper rumbles on the DC in Capcom vs SNK 2 and Vampire Chronicles with strong showings from Bruce Willis look-a-like in Dynamite Deka on the Saturn, wholesome gameplay on the Famicom and triumphant returns on the GameCube. Happy Genki Gaming.

GameBoy Advances & Capcom Fighting Fests Plus PS4 Blasts

 Tomato Adventure, Space Hexcite & Diadroids World Ambition of Evil Empire make their Genki debut. Lettuce tell you: Tomato Adventure is a delightful experience.

Backed up with Nonono Puzzle Chai Rian, Mario v Donkey Kong & Koro Koro Puzzle Happy Panechu display what a fine handheld the #Nintendo #GameBoyAdvance is.

Capcom Fighting Collection brings glorious, colourful 2D fighting to the current generation of Switch and PS4 fans. Plenty to get your teeth into with the Vampire series, but many more knuckle crunching crackers contained within in Hyper Street Fighter II, Cyberbots , Pocket Fighter, Super Puzzle Fighter II X and Warzard for the joypad dexterous. Psikyo Shooting Library Vol 1 makes a welcomed PS4 debut and shows just how many thoroughbreds the Psikyo stable has produced.

Good to have a blast on Acrobat Mission this week on the Super Famicom (in the interests of play testing of course!) 

Always nice to have a rummage around the Famicom bargain bins too: you never know what you'll find. 

A Pikachu Plush adds the finishing touch to any backpack ready to head off on an expedition. 

The Playstation dominates proceedings this week and its new arrivals section is in fine fettle with Twinbee RPG, Claymen Claymen 2, Justice Gakuen 2, Initial D, Choaniki, Thunder Storm and & Road Blasters and Marvel Super Heroes. 
Whilst the big brother PS2 launches a salvo back through the eternally youthful Metal Slug 3. 

Finally, fine hardware and curio's in the PS2 printer Popegg, Martial Beat for budding Jackie Chans and Para Para Paradise for those that don't live on the ground floor or have net curtains.

The Piggy Bank of Sega is a delightful discovery for anyone who appreciated Service Games during the 90's and its touching that Sega hasn't forgotten its devoted fan base.

The Famicom has more new releases in Battletoads and Astro Ninja  Man DX, keeping it forever young.

 A plethora of delightful restocks such as Namco 50
th Anniversary Collection on the PS2, Hajime no Ippo on the GameBoy Advance, Actraiser on the Super Famicom, the AV Famicom, the PC Engine Duo R as Ultimate Tiger Heli continues to fly out (sorry.) Happy Genki Gaming.
