Retro Games Pickup

Recommended Posts

Well I went in to buy California games for the Master System but ended up with all this. It was $30 per-console with controller cables, and a free game each. I want a backup Genesis. Sadly no High Definition Model 1. I have been wanting the cutie little PSOne. Now I just need to Screen for it and battery pack.

I dont know if this is the way it is for anyone else. But I always seem to collect for systems in spurts.

I’m the same way for most of my systems (even newer systems). One will take my focus and play time and i’ll get more active in seeking out missing titles for that platform for a few weeks. Recently it’s been 3ds.

Yeah. Pretty much the only thing that makes me change gears is one Mike from the "local" game shop calls and asks if I am interested in which ever title came through the door.

that one is probably one of the better ones in the set imo. Just sadly that would be very cramped for 3 people.

 

I think I really want to build my mini jamma cab at the end of the year (yes I have a candy cab but I want to build a desktop/bartop unit).

I just couldn't help myself. =( Not an amazing price ($100 Cad), condition ok only major issue is missing battery holder but unit fully works, but I've wanted a micro vs unit for years and the more I drag my feet the more insane the prices get (use to be able to find boxed complete ice hockey for $100 Cad, now it's 2-3x that).

 

On an interesting bit, I played my close retro friend today at lunch, had a blast still and totally won. :p

Tell me more about if... I never heard of it. I guess because it hasn't been in english until now is a good reason. Still this game might be worth checking out. I love to read about new translations.

It is part of the Shin Megami Tensei series and many point to it as being the first in the Persona series as it shares many themes that Persona has. I think the guy that did the translation was working on it for 15 years or something crazy like that just check he started the translation in 2002). Ill let you know more when I sit down to play it. I think I might get a capture card this month and stream my playthrough.

It´s been a long road, but today AGTP releases a complete translation for Shin Megami Tensei if... on the Super Nintendo/Super Famicom. For me personally this journey has encompassed a second undergraduate degree, a cross-country move, a complete career change, multiple periods of both employment and unemployment, the licensure of one of our translation patches, and the beginnings of a family, in addition to having to deal with several project-related IRC and Discord raids, hate speech, and generalized harassment from the SMT community at large. It´s done, and I *will* maintain the patch should anyone find any bugs or typos. But that´s it.

I do this for the enjoyment of the process, to challenge myself to produce work of ever-higher caliber. if... hits a high enough bar at this point that I´m satisfied releasing it. I hope everyone who´s been clamoring for the patch gets some enjoyment out of it; I´ll let the game speak for itself.

Nice one @CastlevaniaNut18 Also now I know what Supergun to get. I had been looking at the HAS. Now I guess I need to put myself on the waiting list. How to you like yours?

I'm no expert on these things, but my husband is quite satisfied with it and it seems to work fine for us.

Nice PCB get @CastlevaniaNut18, If I could pick up any cps1 game I would love to grab Punisher (that or one of the CPS changer releases for the novelty).

There are many alternatives like even this one. Superguns are pretty straight forward (you can even build your own with some wiring).

Yeah, I remember when they use to go for not all that much. =/ 

 

It's kind of odd/interesting where some games go for crap tons and some games go for less even when they're rarer.

So anybody get anything retro for the holidays? I got two small things, My good friend gave me Bionic Commando nes cart (I got him flashback for switch) and another person gave me space invader tiny arcade (it's neat, gonna swap in a pi 0 to finish off an old project idea I half completed).

 

Side point, I found a boxed copy of Bloody Wolf TG16 at a local game shop. I'm on the fence if I should get it (I don't need it nor can I play it since I have a PCE not a TG16) but the price seems really cheap for what it normally goes for on ebay ($99 cad). I know it will most likely sell in a week or two.

I didn't get anything retro, but spent christmas day cleaning some nes carts I had gotten months ago. I picked up a bundle of 20 games since it had Mega Man 5 with it.  Out of the bundle, I'm keeping mega man, duck tales, bionic commando, and the guardian legend.  The rest I'll trade or bundle up with a nes console I refurbished with a new 72 pin connector over the weekend.

I didn't get anything retro yet but I'm looking to get a supergun with my xmas money. I have been looking at the HAS. The only downside is it could take months. Blood Wolf is a fun TG16 game. I played it then and I have a copy now. I played some Super Castlevania 4 on the Holiday break.

I picked this game up recently. I really wanted to play the Game gear games on it.

I picked up Hangon and Sarafi for the Master System and I got a free NFL genesis game. Sport Talk Football with Joe Montana '93. I also got new Genesis RGB cables and a famicom to NES adaptor.

I keep forgetting to post my latest gets. My local shop got some Genesis games in so I picked up a few (plus a few ps2 games for cheap). 

 

Also funny what you find when cleaning up your storage locker (I live in a condo, so my version of cleaning out the garage). I found an old PS1 from the first studio I worked at. Gotta see if it still works (I got it because the parallel port broke so it was worthless to work since you can't use it for debugging).

So here is a photo of my recent gets, Minus the ps1 which was a recent find of something I had lost ages ago (last one of these I had was finding where my Samurai Shodown 1 Neo CD went).

Good news, the PS1 actually still works, including the mod chip (ran an import on the unit).
