With a tease of two game-and-watches... Saucy!
got this today in the post.
Gall Force was an anime back in the mid/late 80s.
the game was released on MSX and Famicom Disk . it looks surprisingly good on the MSX 1 actually, but I love the box art and it comes with a cool poster / manual
How many games have you got for the msx now Ollie? You're building up a nice collection.
Falcom wasn't cheating the fans when they did the MSX versions of the YS series. Cards, display stand, mouse mat, 80 pages full color manual, musical score, toooons of ads and brochures and a stunning padded box
yeah, I haven't counted in a while. I'd say around 140/150 mostly boxed games, not counting doubles
Falcom are just wonderful. For such a big important part of Japanese gaming it's a shame they've remained so niche until now. Thank god for their partnership with XSeed who are bringing their games to the West.
...don't need more videogames....have enough already...want MSX...
Damn you Ollie, you're like a drug dealer standing outside a methadone clinic with a bag full of heroin
That really is lovely - how do MSX floppies hold up to the test of time? Do you play any of them?
The packaging on that is really nice, the closest I'm going to get is the msx compilation on the Saturn. I have neither the space nor the funds to start unfortunately, it would be interesting to see how the Saturn holds up against the msx gameplay wise.
