The Unofficial Waixing Science and Technology Game Catalog

Two weeks ago I became temporarily under house-arrest, thanks to the sudden realization of a dream.  For the longest time I had wanted to own a pet cat, and I had been in talks with my girlfriend about this.  A few weeks back, we visited an adoption agency on a whim and when we had gone in, I could see in my girlfriend’s eyes that we weren’t leaving without one of the kitties.  And we did.

Now being responsible for a two month old kitten, I have been trying to juggle my time between work and tending for him (Richard).  In some ways, this has put a cramp in my style – instead of hopping on a random train during the weekend and seeing where I end up, in some town far, far away, I need to stay close to home, so that I can feed Richard his breakfast, lunch, dinner, and midnight snack.  On the other hand, being close to the house forces me to think of ways to entertain myself locally, and that is where the Waixing guide comes into play.

As a few of my collector / gamer buddies know, I have been talking about writing a guide for the Waixing games since the summer.  Since Richard arrived and I was trapped at home, I have been slaving away at designing a catalog of sorts, which attempts to showcase all of their games.  It is a checklist, but I also have hopes of turning it into a guide that will be very useful for gamers too, which have a mild interest in Waixing’s products.

I hope someone will find this guide useful, and if you have any comments or information to add, please let me know.  Thanks!

Updated Game Lists

For the past several weeks I have wanted to post some more content here, as I have gotten quite a few interesting things lying around that I would like to share with everyone; however, real life situations have gotten in the way, namely work and training for some races this summer.  And thus I haven’t had time to post anything new.

I did have time to update  two of the game lists I had released previously though.  With the unlicensed game list, I added a few more fighters to the list, and I also removed some duplicate entries, which had originally been included to mark variants.  With the NES games ported to the Famicom by pirates list, I added a few more entries, as I was recently able to confirm a few more game releases.  Both updated lists can be viewed (and printed) below.
