Anyone have anything a bit different or unusual in the collection?
I dont have a whole lot, but a few interesting things nonetheless. I have a cartridge copy of Beastball that i bought from Markymark (i think), the guy responsible for dumping a lot of rare protos and cancelled games, and a Megadrive/SNES game copier called the double pro fighter that dumps the cartridge to a floppy disk. Apparently it launched in 94 with a notoriously high DOA rate although mine seems to be fine still.
So anyone else have anything a bit off the beaten track?

i won't go listing stuff as I'm sure the regulars here are sick of me at this stage (!) but my oddest piece is probably that undumped Zero Tolerance early proto build, mainly because I've a gang of Russians after me for it

bit of piss taking and joking but I did genuinely receive freaky messages via PM on a number of sites over several years

That's unreal. Never thought the Russians would be that passionate about the megadrive.
I remembered another strange one I have lying around somewhere, a new pal Asia megadrive from stock found in an old warehouse. Story about it here

That's very cool, did you buy it that way or did you meet him and get him to sign it?

Got talking on atariage, sent over a copy to him and he signed a cart and manual for me. I've got a good few carts signed this way over the years!

I've a GameCube NR reader with some discs. A few blank ones and a few with different builds of games. Was offered $100 to ship the discs to the states for someone to dump them and then send them back but didn't want to risk a stranger running off with them!

Other than that nothing too unusual, a couple of "rare" games but nothing crazy.

I too have a Steel Battalion set up, instantly making your one less odd!

I have a complete Namco Museum collection in its display box and including sleeve.
I also have the Namco paddle controller for it.
Also have paddle controller for the DS as well.

Atari Super Pong and a 70's black and white telly to play it on is less odd more cool, imho.
