    Fresh in from the Netherlands, Shinobi X on the saturn. :)

    I sold my original copy which was great condition and regretted it. But this one might be even better, near flawless! It's always difficult to tell with the cardboard Saturn games, so I'm pleased to see it.

    Its not better than shinobi 3, but it's still very good. Another weird few twists from Sega on a franchise. It got a superior soundtrack in Europe versus the other versions (called Shinobi Legions).

    The icing on the cake is the fmv stuff dotted throughout the game, just amazingly cheesy. They definitely took a leaf out of those million "ninja" films from the 80's which are hilarious with a few friends around. So bad they're good, have you in tears :)



    For comparison (check the star wars rip off music at the start too)...

    I absolutely love that game, anything that combines that level of cheese and ninjas is good with me.

    It actually plays a lot better than I was expecting it to aswell.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,436 ✭✭✭ McDermotX


    Aye....was slated at the time in a lot of quarters, but I remember picking it up on release and wondering why people hated it so much. I suppose it has found an appreciation over the years, with the cheese only adding to its value.
    Dynamite soundtrack (on the PAL release anyway).

    Bit of a reference photo for you here Jack Burton, I found this shade of gold goes best with cabinets...

    It's an absolutely shockingly ugly game especially when digitised sprites were well past their sell by date and everyone was looking to 3D. Still think it plays really well but then again this is an era where amazing 2D games like Rapid Reload/Gunners Heaven were savaged while singing the praises of uninspired stuff like Crash Bandicoot or.... Pandemonium!.

    Found another use for that Ikea filing cabinet I posted on the other get thread, they're actually great for storing loose catridges. The drawer is pretty much the depth of a snes cart.

    Can fit about 30 Snes carts in a drawer, so about 180 in a total unit.

    snes-carts.jpg

    It's an Ikea Helmer for anyone that's interested, only 30 quid!

    https://www.ikea.com/ie/en/p/helmer-drawer-unit-on-castors-white-10251045/

    I have about 100 more loose snes carts so think I might clear out a few more drawers and lash the rest of them in.

    Should be great at keeping them in good condition too.

    I got an old set of office drawers, where my N64/Snes and PS games live.
    It *just* about fits them all.
    My better half bought me a bunch of plastic storage things, so I will be trying to find a home for everything current before I embark on more purchasing.
    In fairness, there is stuff there that has barely been touched (as the priest said to the nun)

    Out with the old and in with the new.
    My old Amiga 600 1MB trapdoor expansion on the left and the new 1MB expansion with clock on the right. The old one worked fine, but there's a slight bend in it and I just don't fully trust it anymore.

    Should you want to sell the old expansion (Chip Memory?), let me know :D

    Picked this up after a friend told me about it. Looking forward to reading a bit about consoles outside of the usual Nintendo, Sega, Playstation etc.

    Not strictly a new get but an unearthing.

    Dug out a load of original* ps2 discs from the attic which probably haven't seen the light of day since 2006 when I switched allegiance to Microsoft and the xbox 360

    * The cold air in the attic seems to have caused the disc artwork to fade over the years. Luckily I had the foresight to write the name of each game in permanent marker which ironically didn't fade

    I know, I look with amazement at the various dusty cakes of CDRs and DVDRs stuck in the darkest corners of the gamesroom, only the titles give it away... Radiant Silvergun, Tokyo Bus Guide, Star Control II and some 888in1 CD for the Amiga 32!
    I know I should just toss them all out, but I just can't!


  • Registered Users Posts: 31,707 ✭✭✭✭ o1s1n


    After recently getting into the whole ODE thing, I threw an absolute rake of CDRs in the bin. Was going to hang onto them even just for nostalgia sake (sure they're 'retro' themselves now at this point!) but saw sense in the end. :D


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 33,891 CMod ✭✭✭✭ CiDeRmAn


    Cakes and cakes of Wii and Xbox games already found the bottom of the bin here a while ago.
    I think the first to go were the ones from the 90s, back when we all modded our Playstations.
    I remember my first playthrough of Metal Gear Solid was a dodgy Japanese copy.
    Because it came on a CDr with no back cover... no clue to be found for that puzzle, so I was stuck for ages!

    Kinda retro related, Fangamer was doing a SMT Nocturne long sleeve top. Heard mixed on the remaster but looking forward to it

    I had a legit copy and couldn't figure it out.

    I totally over thought it and was looking at all the serial and barcode numbers on the box and putting them in. It was only when I went through and called every combination of numbers on the codec and found it that I realised I was an idiot and it was in the screenshot.

    Speaking of ninja’s and cheese I picked this up a couple of months ago on the gba , Great game and the difficulty on the later levels is insane but I loved every minute of it recommended for a play through .

    Just arrived courtesy of Kerbdog...
    My new Colecovision controller!
    Just tested it, works like a charm and games are so much better with a proper controller.
    Also, plugged in to the console itself, is the cheap and cheerful Coleco multicart, now with dip-switch power!
