Continuing on the topic of building a Saturn collection...
Gosh-darn! These games are real expensive! I payed less than the usual Buy It Now prices, but it still cost me around 80 quid for two games. I must have lost my mind. :(

And there are still many costly games I'm after. Looks like a long term project.

For my own use, here's a check list of current desirables:

Dragon Force
Shining Wisdom
Die Hard Arcade
Nights into Dreams
Daytona USA (only if it has the kickin' soundtrack. "Rorring Stahhhhhhhhhhhht!!")

Pretty sure I have Daytona USA and Die Hard Arcade if you're interested?

EDIT : You are me about 5 years ago...

:lol:

:lol:
If you're willing to part with Die Hard Arcade, I'm all up for that. Daytona I could probbably get for a couple of quid on eBay.

Heck, if you've got any other interesting Saturn games that you could sell that'd be pretty rad. I don't know much about the system, so I'm open to good suggestions.


Do I take being compared to a 5 year younger WoO as a compliment? :-k

Haha I just meant collecting old games. I've sold all the rarer ones now, still got some good ones though, but I never play them to be honest. Clockwork Knight was quite a good platformer, did you get that yet? Also, Sega Rally is still my favourite rally game ever. I've got Sonic Jam too, which was a pretty good collection.

I just wonder how long it'll take before I end up selling these darn games? :P
considering the price these Saturn games go for, they'll end up going for huge money in the future. Have you seen what the Panzer Dragoon RPG goes for? Oof!

Well, I've already got Sonic Jam (which blows the modern Sonic collections out of the water) and Clockwork Knight (the face on that f'ing baseball). So far SEGA Rally and Die Hard Arcade sound good, assuming you still want to sell them. Any other suggestions would be neat. :)

edit: actually, i've spent way too much recently and I've got more than enough games to keep me entertained. I'll pass on the games for now. Sorry about that. :|

Yeah I owned Panzer Dragoon Saga for a while. Sold it on without ever playing it. I bought and sold it for £90+

Came across a rather interesting Kickstarter project.
SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis: Collected Works

Pledged 30 quid in the blink of an eye!
I am hugely nostalgic for the Mega Drive and continue to play it's games on original hardware. Not only that, but I'm also particularly fond of the art work and aesthetics of pretty much everything involved with the system. From the look of the console itself to the carts to the wild air-brushed artwork on the box sleeves.

So, a deluxe hard backed book about the art and design of The Mega Drive sounds so perfect to me. :D

Also fun SEGA stuff:

Likewise. If it's even half as good as his Sensible Software book then everyone's a winner. Beautiful book that's well worth checking out if that's something you're into.

That looks amazing.

Books really are the best.

Found a box full of Saturn games in my closet. Was sad to remember that I had to sell a few of my rarer games in times of debt. No longer will arctic blasts be bore. :(

That said, of the few games I still have, the CD music is worth the find alone.




Also, I'm trying to figure out what, if any, must have Mega Drive games I'm missing. From my own nostalgia pile, I am looking to get a copy of Zero Tolerance... the only FPS on the Mega Drive that wasn't complete bobbins (I'm looking at you, Corporation!)

Any way, here's my collection:

Spoiler: show
Boxed:

Zero Wing
Space Harrier II
Toejam & Earl
Streets of Rage 2
Two Crude Dudes
Mercs
Rolling Thunder 2
Strider
Ghouls'N Ghosts
Alisia Dragoon
Talmit's Adventure
Rocket Knight Adventures
Sparkster
Sonic
Sonic 2
Sonic 3
Sonic & Knuckles
Ristar
Dynamite Headdy
Light Crusader
Shining in the Darkness
Shining Force 2
Alien3
Robocop vs Terminator
Castle of Illusion
Flashback
King of the Monsters
Earthworm Jim
Earthworm Jim 2
Sub Terrania
Red Zone
MegaGames 1 (Super Hang-On, Columns, World Cup Italia '90)
Empire of Steel
Mutant League Football
Rolo to the Rescue
Desert Strike
Jungle Strike
Urban Strike
General Chaos
Starflight
Buck Rogers: Countdown to Doomsday
Populous

Mega CD:

Road Avenger
Sol-Feace/Cobra Command
Thunderhawk
Batman Returns
Prince of Persia
Arcade Collection (Columns, Golden Axe, Super Monaco GP, Streets of Rage, Revenge of Shinobi)
The Terminator
Wolfchild
Final Fight CD
Ecco he Dolphin
Sonic CD
Sewer Shark

Loose Carts not fit for display:

Cyborg Justice (Though I'm sure there's a boxed copy hidden somewhere in my parents house)
The Terminator
Predator 2
Spider-Man
Pit Fighter (More like Shit Fighter! Am I right?)

Further Shit Pile not good enough for the shelf:

Micro Machines Turbo Tournament (Had fond memories of this, but playing it again showed it to be a load of old horse biscuits)
F1: An Official Product of the FIA Formula One World Championship (Quite the name. Might be ok, but I don't really go for those weird old F1 games)
California Games (More like California Lames. Seriously, you guys, am I right?)
Mortal Kombat 3 (Severely wonky port)
Shadow of the Beast (broken cart?)


Honestly, I'm quite content with that selection. There's a few games out there that I'm curious about, but not enough to pay big money for, like the Phantasy Star series and the rest of the Shining Force games. Also those spectacularly rare games from Treasure like Alien Soldier and... uh, Ronald McDonald's Treasure Land Adventure. I'm more interested in cheaper, underrated titles to check out.

Also, while I'm taking this time to look though and catalogue my collection, allow me to mention just how awesome Sega Mega Drive carts are. I love 'em!
But not those Codemasters/EA knock-off carts. Those things are dreadful and shit.
What's with the wasted space for that yellow tab? Garbage.

Interested in a couple of racing wheels for the Saturn Subby? Still boxed and all that. :P

Like yourself I had to sell a lot of my Saturn stuff due to fiduciary trouble. The wheels and a borked console are all I have left. :(

Ah, thanks for the offer, but I'm not in the market for Saturn collecting. Started off down that path before, but things got expensive, fast!
Would be tempted if I still had a console, though. :P

One thing I'm very much looking for is a working gen 1 Mega Drive. The MD2 I'm using at the moment is all well and good, but it lacks a certain something.
I've got a boxed system that eVoL gave me, but I can't get it to work right. All the graphics are glitched out and, while it's fun from an experimental art point of view, it doesn't seem fixable. Not without soldering equipment and electronics, no doubt.

Problem being that these days, postage prices on larger items like that are through the roof.

I ended up buying a Mega Drive recently, just to play around with some of the modifications you can do with it.

Its quite easy to work with.

Once I get another switch i'm gonna wire in a 10Mhz oscillator and have it overclocked. Phoar!

I've got to ask, what does overclocking a Mega Drive achieve? :lol:

Hm. Well I'm tempted to open up this old gen 1 I've got an see if there's anything overtly wrong with it. If it's not salvageable, I'll have to scour ebay for local sellers. ](*,)
