Its not unusual~

Purist don't like this notion, but it is a good way to get the big picture sometimes.

Go to heaven indeed...

At least it was "Honest"..

Upon powering up the Pipi and Bibis board, I realised I have the sanitised version for the Hong Kong market. You can see "For Hong Kong" on the bottom bezel. And Toaplan licensed the game to Honest Trading LTD...hmmm..sounds paradoxical?

Anyway, the trade off will be I can play this game with the public and nobody will have a clue as to its seedy past. Yay censorship!

Titular Toaplan Title get! Plus last KOF title to my collection.

Another Toaplan title to the pile. 
It is an unusual title as Toaplan decided to do some more Snow Bros. related gameplay with a bit of flesh.
And my final title to complete my KOF collection for the MVS.

Some PC-Engine loving...

PC-Engine, NEC/Hudson's Famicom killer, which in fact was successful in its aim. However, the same can not be said overseas.
In my humble opinion, it was the only console that pulled off the "life-support" mantra for an ageing hardware. In the most tasteful redesigns too.
Pictured here is one of the last large sized Hu-Card for the system. 
This is my setup I had since 25-27 years ago. It has been modified to output RGB signals as well as composite.
It took forever for the replacement power supply to come and also the RGB cable but it was worth it seeing it power up again.
My CD games collection:
Will need to source a PSX to PCE adapter and I can use my arcade panels to play the machine on the big screen.
