always nice to get sealed games - but the question then is: do you open and play it?

got a game called Bubble & Squeek the other day for my MD - Sunsoft platformer - not heard of it before - but
nice to be able to add something to the MD collection which has been static for a while.

Also got a cheap copy of Ratchet and Clank: Size Matters for my PSP - actually paid for it with my gamestation credit on my elite card so it was free).  Not played anything from this franchise before.

The Neo Geo is an amazing system... not just for fighters but also some great exclusive puzzle games, shmups, arcade style sports, and other genres. If you decide to get one I'd definitely suggest an MVS (arcade) mobo, cheap supergun (Vogatek?), and maybe an MVS multicart to start out. All of the pieces are pretty cheap, esp. in the UK where you can run SCART RGB straight from the supergun.

AES (home console) games are overpriced collector's items and the library is a small subset of the MVS library. There's nothing that's AES exclusive so if you just want to play the games MVS is the best option.

I've been doing some emulating recently with Fusion 364 to check out games I haven't got or couldn't afford for the old Sega Consoles and I picked up 2 today for pretty good prices on Ebay for the Mega CD

Batman Returns
Soul Star

Laird will know all about Soul Star as he gave me a demo of it on the Jaguar! sadly that demo has never played for very long so I thought I'd try it out on Mega CD, luckily I found it for £20 on ebay and Batman Returns for about £14!

Anyone got any suggestions for Mega CD at all? I also thought it funny so thought I'd share that someone is listing T-Mek for 32x on ebay for a little under £3000 for PAL... holy WTF!! lol


Pro

Post by: dcultrapro on April 23, 2012, 15:46:33 PM
how is it different on the Jag? I've played both versions now and I must admit I can't remember any GLARINGLY massive differences? Other than the fact that the Jaguar one just decides to stop working when it likes lol

Yeah I'm sure the platforming sections won't be that great but hey, it looked alright on MCD lol

EDIT! I just looked up Soul Star footage from the Jag and they do look pretty much identical, just that the Jag has higher res graphics, the sprites are cleaner and perhaps made using a different technique than the standard sprites in the Mega CD version

More lucky than busy really. I'm just glad I decided to walk between client appointments instead of getting the bus otherwise I may well have missed out on them. Also very lucky that my friend was getting rid of such great stuff too.

Bought a mixed lot of Saturn & PC Engine imports. Some commons/duplicates, but I bought the lot to get:

Guardian Force - Saturn (shmup)
Haunted Casino - Saturn (poorly programmed casino gaming... with anime girls who undress as you win. :D )
Genpai Toramaden - PC Engine (the sequel was released in the US as Samurai Ghost, but this first game was Japan exclusive)

latest bits and my LAST bits I will be getting were 2 Mad Catz Dreamcast blue controllers that just arrived and 2 cheap 3rd party Mega Drive controllers are on the way. That's all I've got now and I'm ordering nothing else. I've purchased a couple pc games for my new machine but they don't really count I guess ;)

good plan... I've been naughty lately using my credit card but I can handle the repayments and I have nearly 2 years of no interest so I'm sweet, I've got a plan to pay it off though don't worry, Jen fell over at work a MONTH before the wedding and dislocated her shoulder, we are looking at hopefully getting some 8/9k or more of compensation, they have already admited responsibility so it should be long before we receive that, pay off all our debt and are even able to buy double glazing for our flat FINALLY! oh god I can't wait for that.... here I go sounding like a grown up again lol
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: dcultrapro on June 18, 2012, 16:11:15 PM
well the company we went with quoted a minimum of 8k and max of £12.5k and M+S have already admitted responsibility. Also I think it depends on the company. M+S are huge and have insurance to cover stuff like this, and a relative of my wife had a similar thing and they settled out of court with something like 20k! so with any luck our situation will turn out nicely. I'm a glass half full kind of guy lol

Who did you work with when your injury happened by the way?
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: dcultrapro on June 18, 2012, 16:43:52 PM
ouch, well I don't know exactly but I guess it will differ from situation to situation, I mean it depends how clear cut a case it is, jen has witnesses, doctors letter because her mum works at her surgery, the accident is in the log book etc did you milk it for all its worth? The amount of stuff the dislocation effected is immense... we can take it literally anywhere we want and apply it to any situation in terms of discomfort, inconvenience etc. big examples are:

Effected our wedding preparations
stopped jen from being able to work for 6 weeks
Jen is still unable to drive and cannot get to work the normal way so she is living at her folks place which is effecting our relationship
she couldn't dress herself at all for 6 weeks and still can't properly with assistance  now
she cant shower or bath properly
can't sleep properly and had to sleep sitting up for 6 weeks, she still cannot sleep on her front or sides etc
can't cook
can't clean
it effected/ruined our honeymoon as she was unable to participate in any activities etc

I mean this is all situational and we will hold some back when they make an innitial offer etc and we can embellish significantly,  but I'm pretty sure we will do pretty well. She's been with the company for 10+ years and so its all going to go in her favour, but time will tell I guess.

hope things get better for you mate on the subject!!

I'm eyeing up Double Dragon 2 on the NES at the moment, I have real fond memories of this. It's a great example of the developers realising the limits of the NES and doing their own thing rather than a straight port. Had a go on it a couple of years ago and was very pleasantly surprised by how good I still found it. Really want a box in good condition though.

I was playing that at Retrovision last month, I still regard it as the best game on the NES.

Pretty damn close to the top of my list, that's for sure. Really colourful graphics, early example of cinematic cut scenes and a nice variety of levels. The bit that always stuck out for me was the fight that took place inside the helicopter, seemed very unusual at the time.

We have somebody doing Intellivision reviews at the moment, I am looking forward to reading them.

I went to a retro shop last year that had a stack of boxed games and a system for sale, I was very tempted!

The system I just got has 14 games, so I have some to start with besides the DK2K.  There are some Intellivision games that I'd also like to get since they are unique to the Intellivision.

Post by: dcultrapro on July 03, 2012, 12:00:22 PM
yeah I got the dreamcast collection on 360 as well, frankly I'm not impressed, the Crazy Taxi port is poor without the offspring music, Sonic Adventure isn't too great either. I really hope they release JSR properly or they might as well give up right now
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Console Compulsive on July 03, 2012, 20:18:08 PM
Yeah, i have to admit the games seem to have lost something in transition between the systems. I hate to say so but the most playable game on there is Sega Bass Fishing. lol
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: dcultrapro on July 04, 2012, 08:56:28 AM
yeah... see I haven't even tried Sega Bass Fishing on it because I assumed it would be dreadful lol. I love the REZ Port but that wasn't Sega I suppose, and Hydro Thunder Hurricane is another example of how the DC games CAN be ported... rather than the dodgy half arsed attempts from Sega. pretty disappointing. I don't think I want them to port Shenmue, SOA or PSO anymore because they will obviously just ruin them
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Console Compulsive on July 04, 2012, 09:49:26 AM
There have been plenty of whispers about a Shenmue port to the Xbox but hopefully Sega will realise that it is a well loved game and will put some effort into making it pretty & playable.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: dcultrapro on July 04, 2012, 10:03:52 AM
I'd actually rather they did something for Shenmue 3 like they did with Sonic the Hedgehog 4... minimize cost etc, make it viable as they can charge for it etc... Dreamcast level graphics would be perfect and I'd be happy, they don't have to up it to next gen quality if they are worried about cost

After years of searching I finally found a copy of Lucienne's quest for the 3DO!

Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Shadowrunner on July 05, 2012, 17:36:07 PM
Yeah it's an RPG. It came out right at the end of the 3DO's life and therefore they didn't make very many copies of it.  The Japanese version is called sword and sorcery and is pretty common but the English version is very hard to find.
Funny thing is I found it on a small online retailers website in Canada very close to where I live. Last place in the world I expected to find it!  :)

Bought a couple more Sega ST-V carts... Groove On Fight and Cotton Boomerang. Trying to limit my gaming budget, but saw these hidden in a vaguely worded auction and couldn't resist a 'low' bid.

Groove On Fight is supposed to be much better on ST-V than Saturn because it uses all of the arcade PCB's extra memory for character animation.

Lots of bootleg Cotton Boomerang carts around so I'm anxious to see whether this one is legit. If it's a legit cart it's worth $$$. But, I'd still be happy with a working bootleg for the price I paid.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: dcultrapro on August 23, 2012, 15:09:52 PM
ok so I know I said I wasn't going to buy anything more but when your getting deals as good as £1.99 you can't really turn em down can you?

So I was trying to put together a top 10 Master System games video and I realised I don't have my copy of Alien 3 anymore... must've been one of the ones I sold and never got back, so I got that for £1 or so, + P&P and I've also just bought both Afterburner and Galaxy Force on MS for £1.99 each! very cool

I have nearly bought the Saturn version of Groove On Fight a few times, any good?

(sorry... just saw this)

Groove On Fight is a pretty strange fighting game. Freaky anime style character designs/backgrounds/music. It doesn't measure up to the Capcom/SNK 2D fighters on Saturn, but definitely a quirky and unique game.

It's like the Capcom vs series where you pick two characters and can switch at any time. But, the Saturn version only supports the 1MB memory expansion cart so they had to lose animation frames to keep 4 characters in memory at once.


Post office tracking says that my ST-V carts should arrive today. :D


EDIT: Package arrived today and my new Cotton Boomerang ST-V cart is legit. :o

WMCJ has me intrigued, so I went ahead and got it.  It came with the Team Tap, of which I now have 2.  Maybe I should try selling the extra one.

If there are any others you need then let me know as I think I probably have more that are not in that folder.

For a lot of these you will need Nero Cover Designer to print them off in high res, the program is pretty easy to get hold of.

Not 100% retro but I just bought the Atari Collection for my new Nintendo DS, I needed something to play on the thing so figured a cart with over 50 classic Atari games on it would do the job!!!  :D

The seller was in the US and actually had 4 in stock, which is why I thought I would wait. But then I found out that I have the money in my Paypal account and eBay are doing triple reward points until the end of this week so I decieded too snap it up. Cost me £19 with postage and I got 45 Nectar points, which will mean a bit of cash back,¬† so I am pretty happy with that. Never played any INTV games so I am really looking forward to getting this!

Cool, glad that you were able to get it and for a reasonable price.  What the heck are Nectar points?  We have ebay Bucks in the US.  Must be the equivalent in the UK.

Nectar points are a reward points scheme that have being going years here. Some retailers give them out, some just redeem them and some do both including one of the biggest supermarkets (Sainsburys), which just happens to be where I shop. They are new to eBay though, only been doing them for a week or so now, which is probably why they are giving out triple points. Given how much I use eBay it will be great to get points on my purchases and be able to use them to get money off my grocery shopping.

Doesn't matter how many games I buy, I'm still always amazed when I get brand new sealed games from 20 years ago!

It is remarkable that those sealed games do still exist so many years later!  The PaperBoy I just got is brand new as well.

I was down at the Video Game Carnival at the weekend so got to go to my favourite shop ever - Kart Klub.

In there I picked up a Saturn game called Black Fire for £10, it is supposedly pretty rare so I was well pleased:

ps2 isn't REALLY considered Retro by many people, its more consoles that came out BEFORE 2000 that count as retro in some retro circles. Personally I think Retro is any console thats not part of the current gen but thats me lol

Yeah the D pad on the original is the only thing about it I don't like so this should fix that plus shoulder buttons should make a big improvement.

Not really a retro purchase, but related.  My wife just got me for my birthday an iCade for my iPad, and I bought some retro arcade ports from Midway and Namco to play.

I've played Joust and Pac-Man, among others. :)

As far as i know the VC4000 was holds an early position in the family tree of a whole line of 70's/early 80's consoles including the Acetronic, Radofin, Prinztronic, Hanimex consoles which were all based on the 1292AVPS programmable cartridge system chipset. Apparently the VC4000 was developed in 1974 but wasn't released until 1978 where Radofin released it's console in 1976 using the same technology.  May well do some reviews in the future. in the mean time here is a link to read through about it.

Got two more carts for the Sega ST-V... Guardian Force and Elandoree. Really wanted Guardian Force since it uses a different control scheme than the Saturn port. Added Elandoree with a decent combo price/postage for both carts.

EDIT: Just took a pic of my current ST-V cart collection for personal reference:

Finally. It's a strange one; surprisingly hard to get (especially complete) as there† is rarely more than one or two copies on eBay at the same time overall, it is still cheap. Nobody placed a bid except for me.

The SMS version is the best home version of the game imo. Arguably it's better than the original arcade game, which is probably because the SMS port was released in 1993, with the arcade game being from 1986 and other 8-bit versions having been released in 1987. :)

That's probably the reason why despite being an excellent conversion, a late release on the system and being fairly uncommon the game is still dirt cheap. Just wait for some YouTube celebrity to show it in a video and it will get more expensive I bet.^^

Presuming you mean the first one, onthinice was correct:

Quote from: "onthinice"

It's a turn-based strategy game where you can play either as one of the allies or as Germany and relive all the fun that was World War II.^^
Of course the game is Japanese, so it's more for the collection, but there is a 95% translation patch available so you can play it via emulation.

The intro alone is pretty infamous.

Been buying a few games for my new Turbografx the past couple weeks and they have all arrived now. Final Lap Twin, Klax, J. J. & Jeff, Blazing Lazers, Vigilante, and Legendary Axe. Still have a couple more to get that I used to own years ago and then after that there's a ton of games for the system I've never tried that I'll try to pick up over time.

Awesome! Some great games there, especially Blazing Lazers!

and an Xbox Crystal for £2

All this for under £20 in total, I almost couldn't believe my luck.
Damn you, I've wanted a crystal Xbox since I first saw one when they came out. Great find at that price  8)

In other news, I just received Victory Run for the TurboGrafx which I bought from a U.S. seller on Ebay. As good a reason as any for the TG to be the first console to be plugged in in my retro games room  :D

If it's any consolation the Xbox Crystal didn't have any of the leads or controllers and it also needed a repair to the start and DVD drawer buttons as both of them were jammed in causing the dvd drawer not to open and the Xbox to randomly switch itself off. All repaired now though.

Funny you should say that, i've had 3 Xboxes, 2 soft mods, the other my original untouched model and the only 1 of the 3 to suffer mechanical issues is the Crystal model, DVD drive tray often seems unwilling to open.Can hear something trying to move, but usually have to pry it open.

Just wondering if Crystal models more prone to failure?.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Console Compulsive on February 23, 2013, 22:02:27 PM
No more than the other models as far as i'm aware. One of my other normal xboxes had the same problem as yours. I've taken it apart, checked everything and cleaned the disc tray runners. This helped although the problem is still there it only gets stuck every now and again rather than all the time.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Rogue Trooper on February 23, 2013, 22:10:08 PM
Since i mainly use the Crystal for the games on the HDD (Emulators), not overly concerned if tray does give up the ghost, mind you sods law say's it'll happen when i've a mates DVD in the damn thing.

:-)

Cheers for the heads up, nice to know it's not just my machine.

I also got 2 Dreamcast controllers brand new, bought a replacement copy of PSOv2 PAL and Crazy Taxi 2 on DC as both copies were either knackered or close to it, from ebay, and got a Tomytron sky assault (burgundy) 3d game unit for £15 a few weeks ago!

It keeps happening while I am on this site, I didn't know I needed a Turbo Grafx until I was told everyone needed one on this site. I knew I needed a Crystal Xbox but resisted until I saw your thread on here Console Compulsive. Now I've ordered a Sega Megadrive Arcade stick because someone reminded me of them recently.

(http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTiiTexbwAWi7XZNB2UWQP1USlXTayH3CgUWFyWHaKIJnAkoPya)

Bought one of these last week. Turbografx consoles sold in NA have RF output only which kinda sucks so if you want to be able to use RCA cables you need one of these. It plugs into the back where the CD unit would go. There not very common so I was pretty happy to find one and it's mint in the original box too.
On a side note it's official, I buy way too much crap online! When I went to the post office to pick this up they didn't even ask for ID cause they know me so well! LOL

I know that feeling, I am usually on first name terms with all the Post Office staff!¬†  :o

Thankfully the PAL TG comes with RGB Scart as standard, you actually have to plug in a modulator to get RF output so it's completely the opposite!

Cannot think where i read interview with coder behind F-22 on MD, but in those pre-SVP chip days, i'm sure he+team used not only the M68000 of the MD to generate the polygon visuals, but also the Z80 and anything else they could fool into giving a little more power to the maths needed.

Sounded like some really creative coding for sure.

Interesting, I think a lot of people kind of forgot the MD had a co-processor.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Rogue Trooper on March 08, 2013, 20:57:25 PM
From what i recal, as well as the 2 processors, the coders tapped into the part of the MD hardware which 'read' the cartridge, talk about pulling power from every last area of the hardware.

Looking back at what the most talented coders got from the stock MD hardware, still amazes me today:Polygons, FMV, sprite Scaling etc.

The hardware limitations seemed to be viewed more as a challange than an obstacle and better still, as well as being technically superb, games always seemed to be bloody great as well (Gunstar Heroes, Red Zone, F-22 etc).

It's just a perfect handheld game, much like Tetris is on the GB and Klax on the Lynx. You can just pick up and play it anytime.

I have tons of spare 2600 games, as I said to you before I had 3 spare copies of Phoenix and had I known you wanted it you wouldn't have needed to go to eBay!

I have many of them listed on eBay myself, but anything specific you are after then let me know.

Just picked up this great game, RocketBall for the C64. Obviously a rip off of the film Rollerball starring James Caan. Had it first time around, and to be honest, had never seen it since so I am we'll pleased to have got it :D

Use a tune from or copy a film now and you'll probably have a writ faster than you can say "Rip Off"

Andre Panza Kickboxing
Bonk's Revenge
Legendary Axe II
Pac Land
J.J. and Jeff

Today for the first time I saw something retro worth buying at a carboot sale. Aside from loads of PSones (I already have one) and loads of PS games for sale from cheap to stupid prices, I found Psycho pinball for the Megadrive and bought it for a quid. There were some other MD games on the same stall but all Fifa games I'm never likely to play, and would only get used as a doorstop or shelf filler, I suppose the boxes could have been useful for other unboxed games.

Yes you did.  You must have missed the thread about that system in here.  It was on sale on GroupOn for $15 or so (can't remember the exact amount right now).  It was too cheap to not jump at it.  I'd love to find a multicart but those seem to be very difficult to find.  So, I'll likely keep the game library small.

I did not see. There have been some amazing purchases posted of late. I'll need to see what I've missed.

Sounds like a good deal to me.

Thought I was going to need a sedative. Thinking it was the end times. Laird a fan of the Wii and now TrekMD interested in Nintendo. :21:

Congratulations!!!! Hope you enjoy the games!!!!

Thanks!  Well, like I said, for the price it was hard to pass it up.  Besides, there are some games on the NES that are unique to the system.  I'm trying to get some of those.

Had a chance to test out the N1 today.† I'm happy to report that it works very well.† Of all the games I purchased, only one game doesn't want to work properly, Gauntlet.†

So, it looks as though some of the Tengen games may have an issue.† Thankfully, of the five I got, only this one has issues.† The other ones all work just fine.† Gauntlet is not playable, unfortunately, even though it does come up fine on the screen and lets me select characters and all.† Unfortunately, once the game starts, there is no way to grab anything, the shots don't work on anything, and your character moves through some of the walls.

I was unpacking my bag after Revival yesterday and totally forgot I bought a couple of Mega Drive games at the show too! I got Rampart and Corporation, both loose, for £5. Then then yesterday I popped into my local games shop and grabbed Bully and Street Racer for the Wii for £10 and he threw in the MD Jurassic Park for free!† :16:

Dunno where to put this, so here will do hopefully

Just picked this up from Turnarcades (they are based just 6miles from my work)

(http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/05/23/bepezumy.jpg)

The Laird will hopefully remember it from the Retro Revival event.

It's allegedly got over 8000 games on it with

Arcade Roms
Laserdisc Game Roms
Emulators and games for :
NES, SNES & N64
Neo Geo
SEGA Megadrive I, II
Game Boy
Game Gear
Atari Jaguar amongst others
And a Jukebox mode which will play uploaded MP3's

I have never wanted the home time buzzer to go so much :-D

I wanted to try out my new credit card so it gave me a good excuse to buy one of these:

(http://www.funstock.co.uk/image/cache/data/RetroGaming/Ultimate%20Portable%20Sonic/sega-megadrive-arcade-ultimate-sonic-edition-opt-320x320.jpg)

I had heard that these 6 button ones that feature an SD card slot (also known as the Sega Gopher) are much better than the old ones that were limited to just the built in games.

They have 20 games built in, mostly classics, and once you get a SD card you can download ROMs to it to add more.

The main reason I bought one though is that Funstock have just knocked £10 off the price and by entering "RVG" as a coupon code when you check out you get a further 10% off, so I really can't complain!

Raiden Project and Strikers 1945 for the PS1.

I use to have Strikers 1945 Plus on Neo Geo AES as a conversion cart (cost me a pretty penny of $400), but came to my senses eventually and sold my Neo Geo collection a few years ago. So, this PS1 version will suffice nicely at only $11.

My latest retro "game" purchase is some hardware for my 130XE. I ordered a stereo upgrade & 2nd POKEY chip and an SIO2SD device from Lotharek. Received them today.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/130XE1-s.jpg) (http://http)

First thing to do was to de-solder the POKEY chip (mine wasn't socketed) and solder in the new socket.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/130XE2-s.jpg) (http://http)

Put both chips in and solder a ton of wires. Not feeling great at the moment, so this was more difficult than normal. The wires on the port to the right are for the SIO2SD. Below the new audio sockets on the left you can see the S-Video socket I added a while ago.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/130XE3-s.jpg) (http://http)


Already loaded up Jet Set Willy & Warhawk. Everything seems to be OK.

If anyone wants to suggest some games to try out....

Had a look through and copied some stuff over. I think the 130XE is going to become one of my favourite things. It's really nice being able to use it at last. Especially as when I got it the keyboard didn't work.

Nope! It's pretty rare and usually very expensive, I got a really sweet deal on this from somebody on another forum who I had been helping out with burning Jag CD games. So I was extremely pleased to pick it up finally!

Result! The box looks to be in great condition. Is the console itself in good nick too?

I'd imagine such a thing CIB like that would likely fetch a pretty penny on ebay these days given that it's the de facto Mega Drive/Genesis of choice.

I'm wondering if it being multi-region for games also means it can connect with Mega-CD/Sega CD and 32X of all regions too? In theory one would perhaps think so but if, say, a PAL Mega-CD specifically needs a Mega Drive with its PAL BIOS chip then it might not. I'm intrigued.

Cheers. It'd be cool if it is compatible with your (presumably) PAL Mega-CD as you'd obviously then only need the one Mega Drive taking up space. I don't know if you own a 32X but I'd have thought that peripheral uses the same regional lock-out protection technology as Mega-CD/Sega CD does.

Picked up a model 2 Saturn at the car boot sale on Sunday. Already have a model 1, but haven't had a working model 2 in a while. Fitted a region-free bios chip, 50/60hz switch and modchip while I was at it.

Then for my birthday on Monday I got an SD2IEC and a Dreamcast keyboard.

Many of the developers for the Intellivision do make overlays for their games as that is part of the experience.  Not all overlays are useful during gameplay but they do "decorate"the controller quite nicely while providing some basic information (i.e., which buttons fire, selection of levels, number of players...).  All the official releases from Elektronite, LTO, and IntelligenVision have overlays. 

In Intellivision-land, collecting the overlays is also a big deal and there are folks who make overlays for games that did not have any officially (from the original releases) and for the homebrews that do not have them.

Interesting stuff. It sounds as though the Intellivision scene is a passionate one where folk care for the extra little details that serve to enhance the overall experience. I'm seeing some parallels there with the screen overlays for Vectrex, i.e. the desirability of owning them and there being reproductions available to purchase. That level of enthusiasm reminds me of how great the Jag scene used to be before it all turned to ratshit following... well, you know the story!

You are exactly right and the parallel with Vectrex owners is valid as well.  I have a pretty significant collection of overlays for both systems myself, even if many of my Vectrex overlays are reproductions.  It's just more fun to play the games with them.  On Vector Gaming Forums some folks are talking about making overlays for several of the homebrews that do not have them right now.  Very exciting stuff!

Looks nice and clean Trek. The only thing I wonder is why they gave you older controllers instead of the dogbones that came with the top loader. They are good and comfortable for long gaming sessions. Excellent!
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on August 03, 2013, 17:33:12 PM
I was wondering the same thing but I couldn't really argue with the price.† Finding systems with the dogbone conntrollers is harder for some reason.† The controllers themselves are not hard to find nor are they pricey if one gets the Tomee branded ones.† I may end up doing that.†

That's the Starplex controller, which works on the 2600, 7800, and C64.  :)  I'm hoping a new sticker for Space Rocks gets released (I know there are modified Starplex controllers that will be sold) so I can just attach it to this controller.

I haven't bought many retro games lately but I was starting to feel the itch again so I picked up a couple over the last week.

Beggar Prince for the MD/Genesis. This was Super Fighter Teams first ever homebrew release and has been long sold out. They only made 1500 copies so it can get a little pricey but I managed to snag a copy that was fairly reasonable.

Moto Roader for the Turbografx. I've read some pretty mixed reviews of this game but it was cheap so I decided I would give it a chance.

Japanese version of F-Zero X. Gorgeous, gorgeous packaging. I have the PAL version but wanted this after seeing a comparison video showed the NTSC version to be faster despite the PAL optimisation.

It doesn't feel obviously faster - though some tunnel sections feel a bit faster - it shows that the PAL port was a pretty good job. I love having this - F-Zero X is my favourite in the series - it is just so much fun and even 1ups the mighty GX in that respect. There is the odd track side sign I have noticed that I don't think was in the PAL version so I will have fun spotting the differences.

I have used rumble with this game for the first time - should have tried it ages ago. I really feel Nintendo used rumble on the N64 better than anyone - probably on any console since actually. It really adds to the game - the N64 rumble pack seems to be capable of a wider and more subtle range of movement - great stuff.

They both look high quality productions. A damn sight better than the last boxed EA game I bought, FIFA 13, where the disc came supplied in an otherwise empty DVD case!

One more thing to add.† Though I have this game's ROM to use on the CC3, the cart is so unique that I decided to get the complete game.† For $20, it's not that bad considering I got the box, cart, overlays, and manual.† I've seen the cart alone sell for that!

Some of the things I've got recently:

Most significantly (for me anyway), I got a gold N64. Wanted one of these for ages. Motherboard revision was NUS-CPU-08 so I swapped it with my RGB modified board. It now sits next to my blue debug PS1.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/GoldN64-rs.jpg) (http://http)

Some random games (most of these were from car boot sales, Cash Converters and similar hence the odd choices). I don't know how likely it is that I'll actually play Soldier of Fortune for example, but it was 5p (as were some of the other PC games). Super Mario Land is actually Super Mario Land 2, which I also got but the cartridge was in crap condition so I put it in Super Mario Land as I already had a copy. Will print out a new label for Super Mario Land 2.

I also got Unreal (PC), Land of Illusion (Game Gear), Lucky Dime Caper (Game Gear) - but I already had these so I gave them to my sister.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/NewGames1-rs.jpg) (http://http)

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/NewGames2-rs.jpg) (http://http)


...and a ZX81. Need to replace the ULA chip though.

I just paid 99p to 'upgrade' my Wii VC Super Mario Bros. ROM to the Wii U VC version. Somebody shoot me now, lol! I can now play it using the Wii U GamePad instead of the crappy Wii Remote. Plus it has save states/restore points like an unofficial emulator. Being able to load the game directly from the Wii U desktop without having to boot into Wii mode and fart around with the Wii Remote is more convenient too.

A total rip-off even at 99p but for one game at least curiosity got the better of me. I certainly won't be paying 99p to 'upgrade' my other Wii VC game purchases once they become available on the Wii U VC.

Cheers! The other cool feature of said 'upgrade' that I forgot to mention is that it allows one to play the game via the GamePad screen. Low resolution NES graphics tend to look better on the GamePad's smaller sized 480p screen than on my 40" 1080p HDTV.

On my wish list (because I have to stop now!)

N64

Nice!  :1:

I own all but one of those N64 game cartridges. It's merely my opinion but I consider Wave Race 64 to have aged terribly albeit the water/wave 'physics' are a work of genius. I've not played Beetle Adventure Racing for some time but the last time I did I recall enjoying the game quite a lot - an 'underrated gem', perhaps. I still think Mario Kart 64 is lacking as a single player game (unlike the sublime Mario Kart DS) but it's definitely fun as a multiplayer game.

The GameCube sequel you mentioned too wasn't a patch on the N64 game - a bad move by Ninty to have farmed out production of the game to a third-party dev.

Mario Kart Double Dash!! is definitely worth owning - especially so if you have kids due to the co-op aspect. The kart handling physics felt a little out of place for a MK game but it's not a game breaker.

Eternal Darkness is a wonderful game too for those who enjoy games of that nature.

SW RS2: RL may be a challenging game in some respects but the Death Star trench level is a joy to behold - it really showcased the graphics potential of GameCube (a launch game too!) in a way that made a mockery of the PS2's weak sauce capabilities. While SW RS3: Rebel strike, while not as good in some regards due to the on-foot parts, would come recommended too - mainly for the Snow Speeder/Hoth stage plus the fact it comes with conversions of all three of Atari Inc.'s classic SW arcade coin-ops as unlockable content.

Sweet! Definitely two of the device's better games there. Space Harrier is class on 32X albeit the excellent Saturn version is probably cheaper to get. After Burner Complete is fab. Knuckles Chaotix is worth a a shout too although it can be a little pricey to source CIB these days. (PAL version, at least).

I had that pinball game for the Ps1 - I think there's a bonus disc in there too with "The Web" table on it if memory serves. It's a tough game though it is beautifully made. I got rid of it only when I got Pro Pinball Trilogy for DC which made it redundant.

OK, now that is weird!  It looks just fine to me now!  LOL  How does it look to everyone else?  The size on the HTML is 500 wide by 331 tall.  Before I edited, that was reversed.

Well, it can be played on the 7800 without the XM but you don't have sound as the sound is all POKEY sound.  But, yes, I can hardly wait to have the XM to play this on real hardware!

One more recent acquisition!† This one is a special one because it is a very difficult to find game for the Intellivision, more so as complete as this one.† I don't have the box but I can live with that since the boxed versions usually sell for over $100 and I got this for $20.† Someone is currently selling the overlays each for $20 so I definitely got a great deal.† :)

Some great pick-ups there and congrats on the 7800, Xenophobe and Mean 18 are great games. I also have a soft spot for Jinks too (although many seem to hate it). Wolf 3D and Theme Park are both great, the latter being the best version of the game IMO as it's really well suited to the keypad and has extra rides/shops that are not in the PS1 and Saturn versions! Euro Soccer is a very good game on the Lynx, many happy times playing that.

Thanks! Haven't really had a chance to get much play time in yet, but I do like Xenophobe (liked it on the Lynx too).  Keeping my eyes peeled for a few more reasonably priced bargains. Jag prices are fluctuating a bit too much for my liking recently, but the odd bargain comes up.

A separate purchase.  It is weird (has an LCD screen and you can rotate the face buttons) but works well and cost less than four pounds all-in.  The games were mostly from different lots too.

I was surprised to see it.  They had it put in with the VHS tapes at the local Goodwill.  Now I know where to look for these as they had a few sports titles that were worse for wear (though the cases are worth a buck or two so that something else can be completed).

Just got this from Tototek.

(http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o646/sqoon/sfcjoy_zpsfc489811.jpg)

It lets me play SNES games using a PSX Dual Shock controller, complete with analog thumbsticks controlling the directionals! How sweet is that?

Next, I am getting the same type of adapter, but for Genesis. I am looking forward to being able to play Genesis games with an analog thumbstick.

The plus to that adapter is that it should work with VCS, Master System, Colecovision, and even 7800 games. Can you imagine being able to play VCS and 7800 games with an analog thumbstick? Good times ahead.

Did you contact Tototek? I am sure they would exchange it. As for this one, I tried it with Yoshi's Island and all went well. I cannot tell you how great it is to have comfortable controllers (and thumbsticks)to play SNES with.

Hopefully you have better luck with yours.

No I bought it from another online shop. They offered to replace it but I had to send the defective one back. I didn't save the package so I couldn't do a return to sender and would have had to pay for the return shipping.
I looked all over the net and couldn't find anyone that had bought one or any kind of review to see if they really did work so I decided to just cut my losses and I didn't send it back.
Maybe I'll try Tototek, I'd never heard of them before.

Not all that interesting just one thing
I got my self a copy of Mr Nutz today from a local store.
Quite fair price and condition and since its currently between £25 and £40 on ebay so im pretty happy for £10.

Cons:
Missing manual
small scuff on the cartridge artwork
Ex-rental sticker

(http://i43.tinypic.com/6egkeg.jpg)
(http://i39.tinypic.com/rt2og0.jpg)

I want to attempt a sticker removal but have a feeling this one could be quite tough.
Any tips?

Thanks for the read. I promise it only gets more interesting from here lol :101:

Been spending a bit too much recently ~£110 in Total

Now have a 3DO and a number of decent games, including Street Fighter 2 which isn't in the photo.

Cybernator for the SNES and Majoras Mask on the N64.

Cheesey "unboxing" video will be posted soon. Bad quality picture for now:

Nothing overly rare, just a couple of personal favorites from my childhood.

It allows Gamecube controllers to be used on NES. I cannot tell you the hand cramps caused by stock NES game pads, and am thankful to be able to use an analog thumbstick on NES games. :)

This weekend's pick-ups, I am particularly pleased with the Japanese Mega Drive games. I walked into Computer Friendly in Dunstable today and the boss Mark says to me "know the value of these?" and brings out a big carry case full of MD games, most of which were Jap! I took all the games I didn't already have, would have been rude not to, and he still has a load left.

A guy I work with was sorting out his loft and told me he had a couple of old consoles, and loads of games. Today he brought them in and I got these for £30 (along with two PC's and loads of PC spare parts)

Turns out all the Dreamcast games he had were copies, so worthless anyway but I think a DC and 3 controllers and 2 VMU's all working is a good deal, and if the Master system works too the it's even better.

There is a version of this handheld that you can plug real carts into, the one I have takes SD cards. The emulation on them is pretty crap though, especially the abysmal sound, so it's not worth hunting down.

I think this game was a lesson for Mr. Ferretti on more than one level.  He shipped these boxed games using bubble envelopes.  True the box was flat, but several of them have arrived damaged.  The labels are also not laminated, so they look cheap rather than well made.  He has another game in development and said he won't be repeating these mistakes on that one.

Oh dear. That is a real schoolboy error, anyone who hangs around games forums should have known that wasn't acceptable.

I guess he knows now.  Thankfully my box arrived pretty much fine.  Just a little crinkle on one side.  Not really noticeable.

I bought the brand new Neo Geo CD game Andro Dunos. This was originally a MVS and AES game that came out 20 years ago but there was never an official CD release until last month.

Thanks!† That Fix It Felix is from a second run that had the game itself fixed for some bugs.† Though it is a limited run, it is not numbered.† The first fun was numbered (50 were released) and the box, cart, and manual look different.† The box is more the traditional plastic case rather than a sleeve like this version has.† Here is what the first run looks like:

Someone is selling #47 on NintendoAge.† That particular cart has had the game updated to the fixed version.†

(http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z280/mrkizza/20131217_190408_zpsae349a80.jpg)

The big box Dig Dug only came yesterday but I actually picked up the XE Light Gun and XE Joystick for £4 each at Revival but forgot all about them until I unpacked the box yesterday. I was especially pleased with these as the guns are know to go for £50+ on eBay and the sticks are as rare as hens teeth!

So I finally bought some games for my Nintendo 64. I've actually had the thing for a few years, probably after an off-hand comment I made to my parents which made them get one for me. I appreciated, of course, but they didn't get any games, so I went ahead and fixed that. :P (I've had a N64 before, a long time ago, but I had to sell it to buy some computer parts, sadly.)

So I got:

- Ocarina of Time: I've been really into Darksiders lately, so I figured I might as well get the game it spawned from and see if I can't finish the thing this time.
- Mace: The Dark Age: I've always really liked this game, even if nobody else did. Soul Blade/Edge gameplay, with Street Fighter-style moves and MK-style fatalities? Sign me up.
- Wetrix: Never had this game at all until now, but I played a demo once, and it looked like a lot of fun.
- Turok 3: I played the first two Turoks, never liked them much. You never had any idea where you were going. From what I hear, the third game is more linear, sort of like Half-Life, and that sounds a lot more playable.
- Extreme G 2: Never played this game, ever, but I hear it's a pretty good futuristic racer in the style of Wipeout.

I think I've gotten enough bits and pieces to put enough info on a review of the game.  That should be helpful.  Given that a complete game costs some $500 on ebay, I will not complain for getting a cart for $35 or so.  I wish someone would scan the manual or convert it into a text file, though.  It would be very helpful!

I picked up a big lot of 2600 stuff on eBay last week and in amongst it all was these 3 games:

(http://i193.photobucket.com/albums/z280/mrkizza/20140107_134923_zps31ae0577.jpg)

Was very pleased to get Crash Dive and Miner 2049'er as I don't have these games and the second of the 2 in particular is very hard to get hold of, only paid the equivalent of about £1 each for these.

The third game though is very peculiar, it clearly has the label from the ColecoVision version of Centipede but is definitely a 2600 game! Never seen this before!
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on January 07, 2014, 16:35:05 PM

Also managed to snag a copy of Blade Eagle 3D for the Master System, but that hasn't turned up yet.† I've been neglecting the rest of my collection recently in favour of plenty of Atari stuff, so I thought it was about time I showed the MVS and MS some love.† Metal Slug is a bootleg, but I wanted to play it without the loading lag of my CD version.† The MVS board is packed away at the moment, so I'm planning on using my Super Converter II to play this one on the AES.† I was also looking into the Neo Minibox's to store my MVS carts, rather than the shockboxes.

These beauties arrived this morning, very pleased with this lot as I have been after a Bug Hunt for a while. It was one of the games that came with the XEGS Deluxe Pack and given how rare the light guns are I wasn't very hopeful of finding one. It was never released separately and didn't have a box. I love that box for Kaboom too!

Also got some SMS games to play using the PowerBase Mini I recently got.† These came in a lot.† I wish the packaging was a bit better for Enduro Racer but it'll do.†

Epic pick-ups there Trek!

Especially the Nomad, looks like you got some really good games with it too. I see you finally grabbed a copy of Hyperstone Heist, hope you like it!

The Nomad is really cool.  Having the ability to play using standard carts on a portable system is great and it does pretty well. It didn't come with the battery pack but, given how much of a battery hog it is, I'm not concerned with that.  The power cord is long enough that I can sit comfortably to play where I want.  :)

Yes, I have the standard edition of Towers II.  This is the special edition and I did get it for a good price.  Less than I paid for the standard edition!  Orion Collection cart release is just a lose cart.  No box or manual but it does come with a sheet with information on the games.

I didn't know that Rebooteroids was intended to be a cart release.  The Reboot games are usually CD releases.

Zapiy, glad you like the Vectrex stuff.  :)

You know both versions of Towers II are identical right?

They only started putting special edition on it when Telegames ran out of the original stock and started making them on an ad-hoc basis with much cheaper labels and packaging.

The yellow label is shigesato itoi's no1 bass fishing also released in 96 for •8200, had 8 broadcasted episodes. The boxed one is Derby Stallion II from 95 cost •12800 on release it a business and race sim. Not a great deal of info out there but I love the obscure lol.

Yep japan release only between 95 and 2000. Nintendo joined up with StGIGA a satellite radio division of WOWOW tv station to bring scrambled content which was downloaded on to 8M Memory Paks. Games could also be downloaded like zelda games etc. a lot of games used live voice actors during set broadcasts. There is a lot more to it but this gives you an idea.

It allowed you to browse and send emails via the wonderswan.

My latest purchase arrived today: an NTSC TurboGrafx-16.  I got it for a fairly decent price from Amazon.  No box or manuals, but the hardware is in very good condition and everything works great.  Unfortunately I only got two games with it, and neither one is outstanding: Keith Courage, and Double Dungeon.

Now I will be on the lookout for some decent TG16 deals on eBay....¬†  :-

Yeah finding deals on Turbografx 16 games is not an easy task. If you're patient they do come along though. The first game you really need to get is Blazing Lazers! Incredible game and not very expensive.

After getting this in cart form I managed to find boxed copy. Comes with a hand fish guide and a fold out instruction/lake map. Most interesting part is the cartoon instructions for use with the satellaview. The box art is awesome too.

Welcome to the TG-16 club and there are some really good games worth tracking down. Like Bonk and Pac-Land.

PTO II is an RPG by Koei, one of my favorite developers and Congo seems to be a First Person Shooter. I started to rip into the plastic on Congo so that is why it looks a little rougher. I enjoyed the movie and hope to have fun with the game. It has had some mixed reviews from what I read.

If you don't already have it then get Silpheed, that is my favourite Mega CD game and a stunning shoot 'em up that is quite reminiscent of Galaga in the gameplay stakes.

Final Fight is an absolute must have game too and pretty much anything by Core Design is great (especially Soul Star).

Amen.  Games should be played, not left on a shelf to gather dust!

I visited every used video game store and pawn shop in town, looking for any TurboGrafx games I could fine.  Nothin' - but I did find a Craigslist ad.  A fellow had some extra Hucards due to a recent lot purchase, so for about $35 US I got copies of Alien Crush, Blazing Lasers, and Legendary Axe with manuals and cases.  Not anything rare but I thought it was a decent price for three of the TG16 better games.

Val D'Isere is a pretty under rated game actually. You don't hear it talked about very much but its got some pretty impressive visuals and lots of playability, it was done by the same people as Super Burn Out.

Dragon's Revenge is a great sequel to Dragon's Fury (although not quite as good) and T2: Arcade Game is great, if a bit hard. World Of Illusion is stunning looking but not a fan of platformers in general as you know (I do own it though).

Nice pick-ups anyway!  :16:

must.....stop.......buying........games.........got.........enough........already

well i bought a nice copy of command and conquer for ps1, big box version 99p, box has cracks but will research how to restore it, super kick off (master system) £1, only wanted it for the box to put a tectoy artwork into, davis cup (mega drive) box only 25p- will improve condition of one of my md games, same with brian lara cricket (md) £1, its a codemasters game, so has one of the funny boxes, might put my copy of m.m turbo tournament into that box as its much better than it has, my missus also managed to find a 2gb psp memory card for £2.50, i have a tiny one donated by someone off rg but this is perfect for some ms/cd32 emulation on my psp.
and while we were shopping (my missus stood outside the shop as she had been to costa- i am allergic to caffeine), while we were on the other side of the town centre she said 'that shop had wonder boy in monster world in the window for £10, has that been there a while?' i went back to put the shopping in the car and called in and picked it up, along with the tape i talk about on the other thread.

then i dropped some stuff off with my parents (mum has no car till monday as she had a crash yesterday) and they were getting rid of a bookcase, which now houses my games collection

hopefully thats me done till play blackpool

It's an awesome little machine only let down by its japanese only release as it's catalogue is rpg heavy but if you can get past that it's fun. There is plenty of playable titles and the awesome wonderbug. It runs for ever in its single AA and just screams Yokoi and Japanese culture.

This week I picked up some more empty Mega Drive boxes so I could get the last of my loose games boxed. These were all Japanese games and you can now see what they look like after I printed off the inlays and put them in:

Great pick-ups there Trek, I have the 6 button version of the arcade stick - they are really great.

I need to pick-up those 3 games myself as I love Snow Bros and Contra and have great memories of Arch Rivals, which I owned when I was younger.

I am guessing that Snow Bros is a repro though as it was never released outside of Japan.

I bought this week:
-Donkey Kong Country (CIB) snes
-6 Atari 7800 games, sealed. Realsports Baseball, Super Huey, Touchdown Football, One on One Basketball, Ballblazer, and Winter Games ($27 total).

And for Gameboy I got WWF Superstars (loose) and Chase HQ (loose) for the gameboy color.

I don't even plan on opening the 7800 games, but I thought it was a good enough deal to warrant the purchase, and I didn't have any of them boxed yet, except for the Baseball game.

Post by: TL on March 23, 2014, 16:38:13 PM
If you are not going to open the 7800 games be aware that over time the shrink will get tighter, crush the boxes and then stick to them leaving them damaged. Seen this happen to load of sealed Atari games. It is better to just open them.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: 64bitRuss on March 23, 2014, 18:15:27 PM
Yeah I may take off the shrink, or atleast the top of the shrink. Seen too many crushed Lynx boxes in my time.

Picked up another copy of Rampage for IBM PC, complete in dark orange box (my other copy that I had was in a bright yellow box).¬† Got it for a buck at a yard sale.¬† Also picked up Project Gotham Racing (Xbox) and my fiancťe picked up a PGA Tour game from 2003 or something for Xbox (she doesn't follow golf so the names of the people is no biggie for her).

Bought from a guy at work. He wanted £15 for them all.
I pointed out that there were two copies of Warlords and the others were fairly common.
So he took £10.
I feel a bit bad. But not much!† :113:

Not the best of games but it wasn't in my collection so hey ho. Cost me about £20 which is neither good nor bad and as I'm happy with it then I won't lose any sleep lol

Yeah I am not a big fan of AOTMP, the idea is great and the graphics are nice but's just too confusing to be enjoyable in large doses.

Fever Pitch is a very different game to Sensible Soccer, more an arcade style game with some crazy features, It's an ok game, probably more suited to people who aren't actually football fans.

Jagman I  am really surprised that you bought AvP for the LYNX as one of your first games. There really isn't that much to it, other  than a small tech demo really. I would hardly call it a game.

I don't know what Stun Runner is like on the Lynx, presumably quite good as the Lynx is an excellent hand-held, but I have played Stun Runner in the arcade. The one with a motor cycle to sit on - that is one awesome game, very addictive :)

The programmer of Stun Runner on LYNX had the arcade source code to directly translate with, thus it's very near arcade perfect. He has some posts on the Lynx board over at AA, and they are very informative. I find all the Lynx games he programmed to be of the highest quality and near arcade perfect, like Roadblasters and Toki.

The binary code is converted into sounds that the input device converts back into binary code for the console to play.  Have you ever heard the sounds from a fax machine's transmission?  Something similar.

Bought the system for 30 dollars and the cart was an extra fifty from AtGames. But you can play almost every Sega 16-bit game. Most are really good. The Electronic Arts games are off on the sound but the gameplay was still intact.

I wanted it for travel and family gatherings. It is light weight and you can use original controllers.

Yeah came in from Japan. It's an awesome game especially the recoil on the big gun. The music rocks too. Unfortunately suffers from the regular wolf team slow down but overall it's well worth a pick up.

Highlights for me are Yager and Crimson Skies which are hidden gems in MJR (and mine!) opinions and looking forward to those.

Worth a mention is the BSG game which is an odd hybrid (geddit arf arf!) of being set in the 2004 series continuity but visually is based off the 1978 series.

Some free PS2 games here although I bought 2 of them and the PSOne game, thats WWF In Your House BTW which (if your a wrestling fan) is the only one based on the defunct In Your House shows.

Also wanted Half Life as I found a HL save game on an old memory card, want to see where I go to.

All great Saturn imports, Cotton 2 in particular.  That is one game that doesn't get its due because of the cutesy characters, but it is one of my favorite all time shmups.  Cotton Boomerang is no slouch either.

Micro Machines is the best of the lot but Perfect Dark isn't far off (a strange mix of Metal Gear Solid top down view with Resident Evil Gaiden style graphics).† MM is a nigh on perfect conversion of the Amiga games, plays well and everything you could hope for in a handheld version.

I don't know if this belongs in latest purchases but here's the story of my latest additions.
My wife was on a Facebook page which is for people locally to offer stuff for free, like Freecycle but on FB. She tells me there's a woman offering some Spectrum keyboards and games and did I want it?
Obviously I did, and she collected it from half a mile away...
(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-wsBAw2-i2zM/U4zK-376SxI/AAAAAAAAHAc/mibcgc0mnqI/w958-h573-no/IMAG0317.jpg)
Inside a big box was two opened up ZX Spectrum + computers and two mainboards, loads of games and 3 joystick interfaces, 2 of which had an extra slot which I believe are for these rom cartridges...
(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Hws8CxZNvjE/U4zMaNFPwrI/AAAAAAAAHCs/nKvjAotFIN8/w958-h573-no/IMAG0329.jpg)
There was also two books and a couple of big box multi tape games..

As well as all these...

And a joystick.

The pictures only show half of the games, so next I have to try out some of the stuff, and see if I can salvage a working Spectrum from what's here. I have the best wife in the world.† :113:

I had an idea the rom carts were worth something as I hadn't seen any before and thought they may be rare. Having been given a couple of Ebay links, they seem to be very collectible and valuable, with one at £70 and another at £150 and as these have fairly good boxes and some have instructions too and all have the red skirting which apparently go missing I seem to have a good find. Even better is I just tried the two Speccys and one works, and the cart / joystick interface and Backgammon also work¬† :113:

Just starting to get into my MSX so i picked up The Goonies, Knightmare, Aleste, and Ninja Kun. Can't wait to give them a try. What a great system. Wish I would have gotten into it years ago!

@Zapiy nice start on the Lynx and well worth having one.
@Jagman67 I found the MSX interesting in emulation but have resisted the temptation to get into it. How about some pics for the curious?

I picked up the Konami MSX Collection for the Sega Saturn a while back, I really wanted to like this system as it has some great graphics and sound but there is one huge issue that ruins A LOT of games - THE SCROLLING SUCKS!

On some games it is so jerky it pretty much makes the game unplayable, and this is coming from an Atari ST owner!

That said fans of the MSX or people who want to find out more about it should check this thread! (http://http)

Probably a reproduction of some sort.  The cart would not back up on my Retrode.  Almost afraid to plug it into my Sega Genesis and find out it's a dud :p

Super Tetris 2 + Bombliss Limited Edition, CIB. arrived today.

Splendid version of classic game with A, B and C modes and Bombliss mode. Both modes with 2 player battle mode (no B and C options for that sadly - only Atype and Bombliss) Really nice version though, control is sweet.

picked up a few randoms this week. I have actually slowed right down on the retro stuff recently as I am on an Xbox one and Wii U phase at the minute.

However if a bargain pops up, I will still pick the odd retro item up.

first one is an Atari jaguar with 14 games, Ebay prices are going up and up at the moment but you can still get the odd bargain, £78 for all this jaguar stuff.

(http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/002_zpsda7f29b2.jpg) (http://http)

(http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/003_zps0e68858a.jpg) (http://http)

picked up some really cheap PS1 games, PS1 games seem to be going for peanuts lately.


(http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/008_zps9192d290.jpg) (http://http)


Got a bundle of videogame related comics for £1

(http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/007_zps5fdb066c.jpg) (http://http)


Now this is something I have never seen before. I got 2 of them. what you do is remove the original back plate of a GBA and replace it with the back from this kit. you can then plug in an adaptor into the new backplate and it has TV out to play your GBA on a TV.

(http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/004_zps87bd4fd4.jpg) (http://http)


now these are the main 2 parts, and you also get a couple of mini screwdrivers to help do the job. I am going to buy a cheap GBA to see what it is like.

(http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/005_zpsd8d7c154.jpg) (http://http)

A bit dissapointing as the 2nd kit has had its AV cord cut. If someone wants to do a little relodering and wiring and fancies trying the kit out then give me a shout. all I would want is postage and someone can have themselves a nice little mod job to do.

 (http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/006_zpscd83f65e.jpg) (http://http)



also some N64 games


(http://i903.photobucket.com/albums/ac237/joncryan/Ebay%20Pictures/009_zps1385e90d.jpg) (http://http)


and these, the analogue stick on the Hori pad is acting up so I got it for £5. going to try and replace the analogue stick. If anyone has done this before could they let me know which stick works best as I have heard some people say you can use the Gamecube one.

the other stuff is a US Wii game and freeloader. dont need this and Ebay will not let you sell them so the game abd freeloader disc is up for trade if anyone is interested.

The Video TouchPad is for Star Raiders specifically.  It is compatible with games that use the Kid's controller as well as the principle is the same.

Ok this isn't really a retro purchase in the purest sense but it is a purchase for a retro console. The amazing HANZO VGA Box for Dreamcast. I am in love with this device so far

IT was hand made by a guy in turkey and is truly superb, check out Adam Koraliks video on it he goes into great detail, and here is where to get one, it cost me a ridiculously reasonable £40 including postage and for Dreamcast VGAs that is astounding value for the best option on the market

Scooter, SQT-UT is Deep Dungeon III: Yuushi e no Tabi.

Which one(s) aren't you sure of in the other photograph? Row and column location would help.

Congrats on increasing your Famicom collection. I have several hundred of carts/"cassettes" for mine, but I still buy the odd game (and NES titles, which I can play with an adaptor). :)

Awesome deal.  It sounds like you snatched them up for a great price.  Coincidentally, I just finished my first playthrough of Metroid Prime, and I think it's one of the strongest games on the system.  It represents all of the best elements of the Metroid series while making a successful transition to the FPS genre.  I probably spent hours of my time scouring the land with my scan visor, looking to learn more about the environment, the mission, and the mythology.  The controls work incredibly well, and honestly, it's nice to play an FPS game that doesn't feel like a carbon copy of every other shooter ever made.  Super Mario Sunshine is a true work of art and really showcases the graphical power and charm of the Nintendo GameCube.  The water gun mechanics are an interesting addition to what should otherwise feel like a familiar control scheme.  The whimsical story got my attention early and held my interest pretty firmly.  I hope you enjoy those two games. :)

I played Super Mario Sunshine years ago but have only recently acquired a GameCube again...really want Luigi's mansion again!
Metroid is rated really well and looking forward to playing through it (as soon as I finish completing the original tomb raider again).

I went on a little ebay shopping spree recently and stuff is starting arrive.

First up is this Sega CDX. I've wanted one of these for a long time and this is in perfect condition so I'm very happy with it!

Next is this absolutely beautiful arcade stick.

It's huge, as you can see in this pic with a PS3 controller beside it.

(http://i1283.photobucket.com/albums/a559/CGs_pics/IMAG0134_zps4e988d77.jpg) (http://http)

I've been looking for a good quality one for a while, but I wanted to be able to use it with all my retro consoles. It's PS2 and XBOX compatible plus I bought PS2 adapters for my 3DO, Genesis, and Neo Geo so I can use it with all of them too. I have a few more adapters to buy and then I will be able to use it with every retro console I own except for the Atari ones. Someone really needs to make a 7800/PS2 adapter!

Yes, thanks Ice!
Unfortunately my one joystick to rule them all plan failed miserably! For whatever reason these PS2 adapters they make only work with DualShock 2 controllers. Must be something in the wiring but in any case the joystick I bought will not work with them. Not a total loss though, I can still use it for PS1, PS2, and original XBOX games, and I have a lot of arcade compilations for all three of those platforms so it will still get a lot of use. That and I still have regular PS2 controllers that I can use with the adapters with my other consoles. Just a heads up though if anyone else thought it sounded like a good idea.

Yes, they were made for the NES-101 and not many were made.  I think they used the SNES controller as a model for it since the 101 was released after the SNES.

Great pickups! That Intellivision box and cart reminds me of being a kid an looking at all the display boxes behind the glass cases. I would stare at rows of games for what seemed like hours. Good way to keep a kid busy while the rest of the family shopped. Nothing would move me except for needing a dime. Hey, back then the restrooms had pay locks. 10 cents if I recall correctly.  >:(  :21:

Great pickups! That Intellivision box and cart reminds me of being a kid an looking at all the display boxes behind the glass cases. I would stare at rows of games for what seemed like hours. Good way to keep a kid busy while the rest of the family shopped. Nothing would move me except for needing a dime. Hey, back then the restrooms had pay locks. 10 cents if I recall correctly.  >:(  :21:

Those were the days...

Yep!

That NES controller looks fantastic and always great to see new Mega Drive/Genesis games. :113:

The controller is in perfect condition.  Someone was selling two for a lower price but the bottom looked like they had been dragged over pavement!

Are you referring to Chuck Rock, Zap?  If so, I got it on Ebay.  The carts are easy to get, it's the CD version that's hard to find and expensive.  Chuck II is easy to find in both formats.

Some more new things.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/NewGames4-s2.jpg) (http://http)

I also have a different big box version of Jedi Knight.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/NewGames5-s2.jpg) (http://http)

I picked these games up for £2 earlier today.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/NewThings-s2.jpg) (http://http)

From the car boot on the weekend. Also (not pictured) a boxed A500 (it's pretty yellow though).

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/ComputerStack-s2.jpg) (http://http)

My latest old PC (left tower) - a Pentium II 233. I now have 6 PC's. This one will have Windows 95 on it.

(http://www.diffusedion.co.uk/images/525.jpg) (http://http)

You may notice the rather bright 5.25" floppy drive in the 486 (bottom desktop case). It was listed as "untested" but was unused. Managed to back-up some old files that I previously couldn't read on my other 5.25" floppy drive.

Yeah, there's a local auction for some more Star Trek VHS tapes that I'm keeping an eye on too.

The game capture thing has a pretty funny story to it. There were 2 guys at the stall - first one said £3 but he walked off before I could buy it. 2nd guy said £10 so I put it down and just hung around until the other guy came back. I bought it quickly and walked off right as the 2nd guy (who wanted £10) came back.

That is a good price! I've been focusing on Neo Geo CD and PC Engine lately, which means 90% of the stuff I buy is coming out of Japan so I know what you're talking about. The condition is so much better than the stuff I buy elsewhere, some games look brand new!

Yes i originally owned it for my japanese megadrive way back,so after some patient surfing i was over the moon to get it for £2.50.Especially as nearly every auction was ending round about the 20 quid mark. It has some great music and still holds up today,i would go further and say it is the only pinball game i play now over the likes of last gladiator on saturn.Also the us sequel dragons revenge is a complete pile of sh1te im glad i missed out on that sod¬† 8).

That lot looks pretty sweet Trek. The Special Edition Sturmwind too!

Also loving the DC light gun games there.
Do you know what, I never realised Silent Scope was by Konami. I just assumed it was Sega as its quite Sega stylistic, if I recall correctly.

Some good times ahead mate  :16:

Here are some of my additions between Ebay, FreePlay Florida, and a visit to Play'N'Trade in Orlando.† The Xbox Classic console I got along with the Dreamcast as part of a console bundle but I wanted to wait until I had games for it before posting pictures.† I have been quite surprised with how cheap the games are to get for the Xbox.† The 7800 games are courtesy of Bob!†

Nice haul Trek! Now is definitely the time to be building an XBOX collection, as the games are very cheap like you mentioned. Same with the PS2 if you're thinking of getting one of those. They're both at the point where they aren't really retro yet but they're not modern either so nobody's buying them. Great for collectors :)

Very nice additions fella.. The Xbox looks a little battered though, move that on and get yourself a mint one or better still get a mint one and put coin-ops on that one.  :113:

Yes, that Quackshot/Castle of Illusion looks like a great find.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Lorfarius on December 16, 2014, 08:08:06 AM
Every single time I get a game no matter for how long I always give them a ood cleaning with a cotton bud and isopropryl.  But the contacts on Desert Strike and Quackshot were something else, 1 swipe down (they looked clean to the eye) and there was massive clogs of black goo stuck to the tip. I must have spent a good 5 minutes just scrubbing to clean them down  :31:

What I will say is if anyone has a nice collection of carts give them a clean with this stuff, it eats away anything from plastic and metal, evolving in minutes leaving nothing but pristine contacts behind (and no damage! Perfectly safe I've been doing it for years).

Still waiting on my console to arrive but I've been spending ages burning SegaCD games. I've no interest in collecting those so don't mind the odd copy to play the good games!
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on December 16, 2014, 11:39:28 AM
I've had to do that with many of the carts I get.  There is just lots of gunk on them but the alcohol does the trick. 
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: JoeMusashi on December 16, 2014, 12:43:27 PM
I find that if I drink the alcohol I can no longer see the dirt on the contacts, get the cartridge into the slot or focus on the TV for that matter. This mitigates the issue.

This approach works well for all media types; cartridge, CD and cassette.

Nice haul by the way. Road Rash II being the pick of the bunch for me.

Good stuff! I really like Rush 2049, never tried the fishing controller but I bet it's a lot of fun.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: 64bitRuss on January 04, 2015, 02:01:15 AM
I got that fishing controller for $12.99 plus shipping on ebay.

Not a bad deal at all for NOS. And I had a chance to try it out on that Sega Marine Fishing game, and yes it is quite fun!

I %100 completed Rush 2049 on the N64 years ago, and really wanted to try the DC version now that I have a DC console. I'm really enjoying the nicer graphics and audio. What I'm really impressed with though is just how good the N64 version really was. As far as content goes the N64 game has everything the DC game has.

Giga Wing is bad ass! Now I have to get a joystick for the DC too. I've already got a steering wheel in the mail for Rush and Daytona USA. Retro gaming is a never ending money pit.

Nice games there!  I've been looking for Giga Wing but it is rather expensive to get.  The ones I've found also have the white label, not the black.  Is there a difference?

Early DC games in NA had white labels, then a year or so later they changed to black. From what I've seen the original Giga Wing is white and Giga Wing 2 is black :)

Cool.  I'll be checking on Amazon then. Thanks.
I guess I didn't have free shipping on that one. No matter, it was $48.40 + shipping from Game Express Online through amazon. Cheaper than used copies on ebay!

I know next to nothing about the Hyper Neo Geo 64, what exactly did you get there?
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: avick on January 14, 2015, 22:10:26 PM
The NG 64 main board came in three varieties - fighting, shooting and driving. Each board would only take the cart of the correct category - I have the fighting board, which only has 4 different game carts. This one is called Buriki 1. As far as I can remember, there are even less games for the other two boards

I bought a region free PS2 yesterday! I'd been looking for one for a while and finally found a good deal that I couldn't pass up. Really looking forward to diving into the Japanese PS1 and 2 library, so many great arcade and retro game compilations that were never released in the west :113:

This little oddity turned up from Poland

Not so odd, I hear you say....well, normally it wouldn't be, but this one is for the Atari Jaguar ... well, for those games that don't make use of the keypad

Looks like someone took the Genesis/MD controller and made a version for the Jaguar.

when they arrived each in a sleeve, there was a second parcel attached .... 19 sleeves were thrown in extra haha

i would post my actual games but i'm not near my collection at the minute.

My copy of Sacred Line showed up yesterday, just need to find a case now. I was a little worried when I opened it and saw the size of the package. Obviously the insert must be folded at least once to fit in there, but looking at yours you can barely notice the fold line in the middle. Looks good :)
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on March 18, 2015, 23:28:19 PM
I had the very same concern when I received it.  I was hoping they'd just send the insert flat or only bent in one place.  Surprisingly, it works fairly well and the marks are not as obvious once in a case.  I was wondering what BITS meant and was laughing when I read it in the kit.  :)

Ive been doing some digging and the company that made them later became another company called Trilogic, then again  were taken over by another company from Leeds called Systime (who by all accounts were quite large).

I need to ask the chap who got this about it as chances are he's owned it from new....

Cassette to Cassette is uncommon for sure as yes I just used my HiFi, in hi speed also so sounded very strange!

VTech Laser200 (Salora Fellow in Finland) (Texet TX8000 in the United Kingdom) from 1983. "The Laser 200 was designed and built by Video Technology (VTech) in Hong Kong and derived from the Tandy TRS-80. Based on a Zilog Z80A CPU"

I got a machine, no power supply or cables. But it provides spectrum style cassette port so I could load tape files from PC.

More info here if you need it: http://www.old-computers.com/museum/com ... st=1&c=155 (http://www.old-computers.com/museum/computer.asp?st=1&c=155)

Its a basic machine but so typical of the 80's euro 8 bit computers that were once so prevalent.

Not sure on Project Eden but it was Buy1 Get 1 Half Price so needed a title (-;

Midnight Club is a race series I'm a big fan of, I have all the console versions now.

Mace Griffin is definitely a hidden gem, and Secret Weapons was one of the best MP titles on the system especially online.

Fewer things this week but here is what I got.† To my surprise Rush Rush Rally for the Dreamcast arrived this week!† Read some good stuff about Mickey Mania at Retro Gaming Mag's site so I got it.† They commented on the cart version but I read the Sega CD version had extra stuff, so I got that one instead.† :)

(http://i1283.photobucket.com/albums/a559/CGs_pics/IMAG0191_zpsjcrr4eap.jpg) (http://http)

I probably wont buy a lot of games for it because of the ridiculous prices, and I have most of the cheap common games on CD already, but it's one of those things I've always wanted and I knew I would never be happy till I had one! Eventually I'm going to buy a MVS converter and then buy some of those games as they are much cheaper.

I took this picture just to show how huge these games are! Love it :113:

I was just looking to pick up Outrun 2 or Outrun Coast to Coast for either the PS2 or XBOX.

How does it play? Do you have a force feedback steering wheel working with it by chance? I've got a Logitech on the PS2 I wanted to use.

Also, do you know if any converter cables actually allow you to use a PS2 steering wheel on an XBOX or XBOX 360? Some say they do but people who have bought them have posted they do not work.

Have I got a rare plug and play??
I picked up a megadrive plug and play with street fighter 2 and ghouls and ghosts, 2x controllers with 6 button and street fighter 2 printed on both controllers!
I only payed £4.

Been a bit quiet of late for purchases but £22 for this a bargain.

Lots of games including Fable Lost Chapters and Morrowind which I'd been after for a while.

The Xbox is unmodded and staying that way, also cane with a 16mb memory card which will be useful to copy save games across from my modded console..

The 3rd party pad is unbranded but I recognise the design as a Logic 3 copy so if 3rd party knock offs of 3rd party pads - does that make it 4th party lol?

It is, I already have Black and a few others but they are all copies so its nice to get the originals. The memory card is very welcome as without it can be fiddly to transfer game saves from 1 xbox to another especially a modded to an unmodded.

For the bargain hunter I use an app called 'localebaydealsfinder' which searches only listings that are pick up only, it also ended at an odd time (fri afternoon) so was only me and 1 other bidder.

Just picked myself up another (non working) Jag as a spare. Had a bunch that someone had plugged the wrong power adapter into it. Opened it up, and there was a telltale hole in U38 and a bulging cap. Thankfully the sound was okay, so didn't need to replace Reg1. While I had it open, I decided to add a 50/60hz switch.

Latest eBay haul, £9.50 for this lot. The sports games I can throwaway but please to have those GTA games, the NFS ones and that GT4 is the standalone white box edition as oppose to my existing red one.

Gonna have to do a stock check this week on games as I think i may be close to doubling on games.

Couple of memory cards and pads are most welcome too.

Most of the audio is uncompressed which for it's time was stunning. You know when you watch a DVD and an explosion bottoms out or sounds crunched? Yea on a LD it's full band spectrum, nowadays Blu Rays have the sme uncompressed audio, but for the longest LD was the way to go.

Bargain! I regret ever selling my Xbox, had plenty of gems on there that were exclusives.

I've been slacking on the retro purchasing front, but the other week, I bought a huge joblot of consoles and games for £50 off a friend. In it was two slim PS2's (black and silver) and a Playstation 1, all complete, with over a hundred games, with some Xbox games along with it (not sure if it was intentional or not!). That kept me very happy for a long while, I must say!¬† :16:

They aren't really expensive but about £30-£35 if they are complete like mine (receiver and controller in good condition)

Just the receiver itself can be expensive as everyone lost theirs! Haha

Simons quest £11 I think it was nice addition would have preferred the first, but this will do!

And finally 2 new pc engine games! Nectaris (or you may know it better as military madness, or original creators of advance wars) great game, and deep blue an underwater shooter! Paid I think £5 each

Oh man, Deep Blue is brutal, I tried to 1cc about two months ago. It was so tough, I almost cried.

Huge fan of the wavebird.  Have one myself and they normally sell on eBay for a fair bit more than 10!

Yes, I checked on Ebay. They are not cheap.  Good ones sell between $35 and $45.  I'm thinking of getting one.  :)

I had the itch for a new piece of gaming hardware yesterday, so after looking around ebay for a couple of hours I bought an Atari XE! It comes with the light gun, controller, and a few games and looks like it's in great condition. I will post some pics when it shows up. Time to explore the world of the Atari 8 bit :113:

I'm not too familiar with the Atari 8 bits.

I've just Googled it and looks like a pretty neat machine. Similar style to the ST.
Be interested to see it mate.

Post by: Shadowrunner on July 31, 2015, 19:24:00 PM
I'm not too familiar with the 8 bits either, so this is going to be a great way to learn! It's basically a computer but inside a console shell. It will play all the Atari 8 bit computer cartridges out of the box, and you can add a tape and disk drive to play the rest of the games. Looking forward to trying it out :)

Not the best condition front of box, but everything else is near mint and it was nice and cheap and he put it in a protective case too! Nice guy!

Just In case your thinking where have I seen this, you may have seen it in the arcade or named "super buster bros" in America :)

Been wanting this for a while to use with my super advantage!

Pang is a brilliant game in the arcade. Never played the SNES version though. I'll have to check it out.

Shame about the front of the box. Looks like someone has peeled a sticker off it or something.
Never-the-less, looks like a cool game you got there!

I know, I may try and get a better box later down the line, but just really wanted the game and couldn't turn it down, an unboxed copy is like £20-£25 something like that and this was £15 so I couldn't say no as I really wanted it! Haha

I wish I had the mold for these and the circuit scheme. Would be great to mass produce them and sell dirt cheap so Jag owners worldwide could enjoy! (all 400 or 500 of them :P)

I bought a brand new sealed Pro controller 2 or 3 years ago for $90, now a used one goes for over $200? It's a great controller and much better than the standard pad but I wouldn't pay that much for one!

Title: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Akuza on September 05, 2015, 15:37:28 PM
So I've given it a whirl, got to say it's decent enough.

Mighty has all of Sonic's basic abilities, including the Spin dash from Sonic 2. He also has his wall jump ability from Knuckles Chaotix. You press the jump button against a wall to stick to it for a moment, and press it again to leap off in the direction you chose. He can also smash through breakable walls by walking into them.

Which I think is pretty darn cool, although I think the cartridge I have is breaking as it got stuck in the console.. And now seems a little loose on both sides. Darn it.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on September 05, 2015, 15:59:21 PM
Cool, so looks like Mighty merges skills from both characters.  Too bad about the cart, though.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Akuza on September 05, 2015, 16:00:39 PM
It still works thankfully, and maybe I can do something with the cart like glue it together to stop the looseness, but! Yeah merges both characters in a way :)

Great condition on those Star Wars games!
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on September 06, 2015, 00:27:18 AM
Thanks guys.  The Action 53, I believe, comes from a competition.  The cart actually has 16 different games from that competition.  This is the second such cartridge compilation. 

The Star Wars carts are in great condition indeed.  I wanted to get CIB but they were too expensive so I've assembled by own versions for under $20.  Custom box, loose cart, and separate instruction manual.

Never found an intellevision before or even seen one in real life, but all this bundle for £30!

All the rest was just a couple of quid!

I know literally nothing about the intellevision! Haha just knew to grab it for that price!

I oddly enough already having skiing and demon attack loose that I got with big bunch of other stuff. But awesome to see and have the boxed versions now :D

Check out the reviews that we have here for the Intellivision games.  Believe it or not, the console is a 16-bit system and it has some really cool games.  The homebrews for it are amazing with D2K Arcade probably being the best example.

Great looking lot. Super Mario World with a box, that's pretty awesome. Mine was the pack-in and never knew there was a box or separately sold game. Metal Slug Anthology rocks! Nice score :)
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on October 08, 2015, 04:44:51 AM
That's a custom-made box for Super Mario World, actually.  I don't know if there ever was a real boxed version of that particular title. 
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Shadowrunner on October 08, 2015, 05:00:33 AM
They did make a boxed retail version as well but because it was the pack-in for so long I assume they didn't make a lot. They come up on ebay but can be expensive. Great games you got there :)
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: TrekMD on October 08, 2015, 11:42:01 AM
Thanks Shadow!  If that's the case, even the boxes themselves would sell for lots of money on ebay.

That rocks, been meaning to hit up MyAtari for those for some time. May step it up as I just ordered some games from Matthias Domin based on a recent post that the cart version of Impulse X was no longer available.
Procrastination cost me one of them, now it'll have to be tracked down in the wild at an exuberant rate.
Don't want that to happen with these.
Nice score Cryptic33!
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Cryptic33 on November 17, 2015, 17:17:24 PM
Thanks guys, indeed it is a piece of history Trek.

I never expected too much from these discs but they do demonstrate where Atari was going with game design.

Yeah, Bruce was very pleasant to deal with as I was querying the possible customs charges which, he does not calculate. I eventually found an online calculator and he reduced the postage costs for me as he had two different prices for each disc. The cartridges he sells would be subject to VAT taking their total price individually to just over £80 which is crazy. 16/32 systems does sell them for a lot less but Nick's site is very messy with many links still not working and he doesn't state if games are new or second hand which is very off putting.

I also recently bought World Tour Racing from Telegames and that is an exciting racer. I have never got the hang of racing games but this one I do like alongside Atari Karts that is :)
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Shadowrunner on November 17, 2015, 17:59:01 PM
Yeah, I've ordered from Bruce before too. He's easy to deal with but his prices and shipping costs are expensive. Still, some of the stuff he has can't be found elsewhere. World Tour Racing is a great game :113:

Some cool games there Trek. I thought I knew of dozens, even hundreds of titles for the 2600 but those are new to me. Then again, the flow of Atari games over here was never what it should have been for any of the systems.
I think it is funny how both titles have the depiction of a person with a gun, yet in the classic 80's style, Invader X would have sold more titles ;)

After waiting 3 years for this to be finished, I finally have my Collectors Edition of Pier Solar for the Dreamcast! Here's some pictures of everything it came with. You could choose whichever region packaging you wanted, and I've always preferred the look of the Japanese orange so that's what I went with.

Yes! Bought it last minute on a whim and glad I did as Gaztee sold out soon after. Figured this needed to be added to the collection as another "one of a kind" to keep it interesting. Plus, will take some strain off of a JagCD which is a good thing since those puppies aren't likely to be reproduced.
Another excellent release :113:

I have the game on CD but that cartridge and box look very nice!

It's a very nice package. Everything as professionally done as would be expected. Right up there in comparison to JHL15 and Another World. These high standards make it all the better. I know that's obvious but I hadn't realized the degree to which my appreciation is elevated until I really started to examine this and add it to a new perspective of the product as a whole. I have a ton of respect for the efforts these gents have applied.
Excellent stuff :113:

That's a nice lot for the PS4.  :)  Didn't like the console much?

It's more of a timing thing Trek.  Current gen games seem to want you to pump hours into them to get anything out of them.

My gaming time is limited.  I live 90 mins away from my workplace, don't get home till 8pm, then work some more when I get home.  My weekends are usually busy so to get time to play for even just 30 mins is difficult.  Games like Fallout 4, the Witcher 3, GTA V etc I would love to play, just cannot devote the time to them.

Retro gaming on the other hand is on the whole made for quick  pick up and play action, which fits in much better with my available game time.

That makes sense and you're right, many of these modern games just require a lot, a lot of hours.

Don't know how retro the PS3 is but I got one in January and picked up some classics for it. Pretty cool machine. Too bad I ignored it for 10 years 8)

Great pickups! Yeah the PS3 isn't really retro but it does have some great games on it. I haven't seen a ROM comic in a long time! I had a couple issues of it as a kid and always liked the character :)

Post by: Saturn on February 29, 2016, 17:46:27 PM
Thanks Shadowrunner! I'll keep future ps3 related posts in the other thread.
Yeah, I've never heard of ROM but thought it was cool so grabbed it for my comic book collection :113: Need to get harder into that like I was in 94.

PS3 is not retro yet but those are still cool.  We do have a Latest Modern Purchases thread also for the newer stuff.  :)

Note, I got a general error when posting but it worked so all is good. I'll check my pop-up blocker settings. Nice new site btw :)

I'm getting that message too lately. Especially when I link to pics off-site. Don't know if that part's a coincidence. I'm using Firefox.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Shadowrunner on March 02, 2016, 19:37:59 PM
Yeah I just got that too. Once I got the error I pressed back and the post had gone through though. I'm using Chrome.

Back button works every time for me as well.

Edit
This post didn't give the error. I'm assuming bc there was no external link.
Title: Re: Latest Retro Purchases (Games or Hardware)
Post by: Cryptic33 on March 03, 2016, 14:44:30 PM
Yup, FireFox user here also. I'll use the back button from now on when it pops up and yes, external links seem to create the error. No doubt it will get sorted at some point.

These games aren't new acquisitions but the boxes for them are.  I got the boxes in trade as the games were not released with boxes.  <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smiley.gif" alt=" :) " title="Smiley" />
