It was not cheap either ( 70 euro ) but in amazing condition.
An excellent addition to the collection though.......
Also got a game gear/ master system adaptor today for 2 euro...........BARGIN
You'll have to stick up some pictures of that when it arrives. Was it from ebay? I've been looking there for it for ages but haven't come across one priced that reasonably.
Good work on the Gamegear/Master system converter too.
Yeah got it for ebay from a man in Germany.
Will put some pictures up next week when i get them. Will also put a few other pics up of my recent purchases.
You got my interest in hunting down a copy of Wily Wars going again. Looked all over ebay but they were either impossible to find or stupidly expensive as usual. There's a cart only version for 94 sterling and a boxed one for 200 sterling. Wtf?!
'Damn that Warren3, he stole my only chance at a cheap copy of this game'
70 might seem expensive for a Megadrive game..but it's an excellent price for this.
So anyway,I more or less gave up.
Was browsing through ebay Australia for some rare Australia only titles - typed 'rare megadrive' into search.
And look what pops up on the first page by some miracle of chance -
My jaw actually dropped. This cannot be! Surely someone is taking the piss. Then my heart sank as I read it was for Australia only.
Tried my luck and not only was he willing to post to Ireland, he was willing to listen to a buy it now offer.
So yeah, that's how I got a mint boxed copy of Megaman: The Wily Wars (One of the rarest PAL megadrive releases) for 43 euro. (Okay so postage added another tenner from down under..but still!!)
That is a great piece of treasure hunting and a fantastic bargin. Puts mine to shame a bit!
Also got Golden Axe the dual for the saturn today
God a SNES, with one Joypad and Mario Allstars for free yesterday from a friend.
Free is always within budget.
Just picked up three Ps1 games at lunchtime there in a local Charity Shop, but just back now and the one that has caught my eye is 'Namco Museum Vol. 4'. :pac:It's got Pac-Land on it!!!
I never realised there was a version on any of the later Consoles, the only versions I knew of were the Nes one (bad bad bad) and I think the Amiga one. Man I can't wait to get home and stick this on! Reaffirms my idea to bring a Playstation into work and leave it upstairs in the storeroom for lunchtime retro playing goodness!
Also got Speed Freaks and WWF There Goes The Neighbourhood. All for €6.
There is a Lynx version of Pacland too, and it's nothing short of spectacular. Its also one of those Lynx games with a poster instead of a booklet. Very nice, worth looking out for.
Hopefully someday I'll get to try it out!
Wow Snap ,I went to a local Charity Shop today also and picked up these's
for €6 too.They came with their manuals and all in great condition.Funny enough the backs of them were covered in Woolworths stickers .I'd rather have 'Namco Museum Vol. 4' though.I needed cheering up as my 1cent winning Ps1 games arrived today http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=120493715392
All ,bar Rugrats, were unplayable due to the disc's ruined by scratches.How bloodly hard is it to put them back into their cases when you're finished with them argh
Demolition Man for the Megadrive. Another late rare PAL release. Yay
Got Gitaroo Man, Psyconauts and Viewtiful Joe 2 on PS2 today. Not stricty retro but there you go.
Got the following Megadrive games (All boxed) from one person on ebay.ie -
LXH Attack Chopper
Feaver Pitch Soccer
Jordan v Bird Basketball
Super Kick Off
R.B.I Basketball 94
Fifa International Soccer
Grandslam Tennis Tourny
World Class Leaderboard Golf
European Club Soccer
And a 4mb ps1 memory card.
The first four games I want to keep as is. The rest are going to be sacrified to rehome my important boxless carts. I think. I don't actually have any of them. So maybe not. Ah! the confusion!
