Restoring the site and images

I almost gave up on running this site.

It’s been little over a year since I’ve been here. Between my professional and family life, I’m finding it very hard to run GameScanner.org. I haven’t been playing any video games with the exception of Pokemon Shuffle either.

Then just yesterday I’ve renewed my domain. The incredible folks at ImageEvent, are working on restoring my account. If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t even bother doing anything but they consistently deliver top notch support.

So, I’m back with the site after investing twelve years of my life in it. I’m not sure if I’ll be posting often.

Dear Visitor,

If you find my site useful feel free to drop me a line.

A little somethin’ somethin’

Just a quick vector I did based on Legend of Zelda sticker.

Dolphins. What beautiful creatures they are.

That's how we play with dolphins

That’s how we play with dolphins

As you can see, playing with dolphins can be fun! Probably the most expensive creature in my video game collection. Seems like he knows what he’s doing :D Attaboy!

Video game box art: Captain Comic The Adventure – unlicensed NES

Just to be clear – never played it. Nice piece of artwork, doh.

Rest in Peace Mr. Satoru Iwata-san.

RIP Mr. Iwata-san

We live in the world where lots of CEO’s are scumbags who only care about a bottom line and shareholders’ accounts. Mr. Iwata was not one of those people.

When I saw the news I was deeply saddened, as if a member of my own family passed away. I will pray for you and your family.

When people say that our thoughts are with “them” to me it’s meaningless. Thoughts alone do nothing. Thinking about someone is not enough. But prayers? They have a meaning and purpose.

Mr. Iwata, you will be greatly missed by many.

Video game artwork: In The Hunt – PSOne

In The Hunt original game artwork used in PlayStation One longbox edition.

Few years ago I had stopped collecting PSOne games altogether and sold them off on eBay in order to concentrate more on Nintendo. But I do miss those longbox ones. They were different. They towered over the crowd of DVD and jewel cases (pun intended). Same goes for Sega CD games which I still have a few of.
