Set in the U.S. during the idyllic 1950s, Dead Block takes players to a simpler time when a gallon of gas
cost a few pennies, the “golden age” of cinema was in full swing, and that new (and apparently insanely
evil) craze called rock ‘n roll swept the nation—and caused an apocalyptic musical plague to turn the
deceased into the walking dead! The three survivors of the shuffling zombie onslaught – Mike, Jack and Foxy – hide in shelters around town and fortify their area by boarding up windows and setting a variety of unique, entertaining traps like the Cardboard Trap that makes zombies attack each other or the Freeze Trap that causes them to break into pieces.

Kyuiin (PSone Imports)
Kyuiin is a truly unique addition, as we believe most gamers have never seen this Eastern classic. The action-packed space shooter centers around a boy who loves reading his favorite fables. While doing so…out pops a fairy, who asks for help against an evil-do’er who’s been messing with his favorite plots. That’s enough to light his fire. Joining him on the fight is his (co-op) sister. As they look around the room for a vehicle, all they find is a dusty vacuum cleaner, which the fairy magically turns into his flying white stallion, of sorts.
