If you can remember my first post regarding the guide on how to go to video game shops in HK , this will be another game shop guide on the very few shops around the place of HONG KONG.
To go here is easy:
First, find yourself riding a Tram going to Hennessy Road. The Tram passes just right about this road so no worries. The Tram then will pass a street called heard street.There are sings, allot actually,being HK a tourist friendly, so you can see. You can instantly notice it. The street has a famous convenient store on it also that you can make as a landmark.
Just walk right into the street and you will see the Oriental 188 shopping centre.
Just go inside and you will see allot of small stores, computer stuff mostly and some adult material that are half covered with blankets =D (seriously)
Roam around and at the left most corner you will see the shop. You will see some retro video gaming stuff lying just around the door of the shop.Just like the other HONG KONG video gaming shops , you instantly notice the shop with lots of anime and video gaming posters outside the store. By the way , i cant read chinese so I DONT KNOW THE NAME OF THE STORE =) sorry.
This shop is definitely smaller than the other shops that i visited but this definitely has the quantity edge when we talk about retro gaming stuff. I mean, allot! The gamers from a far land can definitely feast on this shop!
Although the shop is very small, the stuff here are very neatly arranged and compact! You can hardly move inside because there are literally stuff anywhere!you just look and stay in a one aisle position, even just outside the store!
The shop has allot of games in stock! Sega CD, pc engine, megadrive , almost all Japanese goodness you can find here. There are even boxed and sealed stuff!
The price isn't that friendly though, just imagine a collector buying from a fellow collector. So no bargain prices again.
Always remember to bring loads of quarter when you go in this shop! you can haul dozen or so for sure. As for me, all i got were photos and eyes full of retrogaze memories.
