RGB Pick Up Thread Of Swag!

Probably in the same twilight zone as my camera is currently in. Arrived at Heathrow on 7th and there’s been radio silence since then.


#483

Kijiji came through for the first time in a while!

The castlevania collection is coming on slowly but surely!


#484

Damn, that’s a sharp pickup. My box is long gone, but I still have the manual. You need an original SotN next!


#485

Mansion of hidden souls is an awesome game. I had the sega CD version and was the only game that my sister finished (she got far in Zelda LTTP though).


#486

I played Lunacy/Torico (depending on your region) by the same devs and I really liked that and this one was pretty cheap so I’m curious to see how this one is. Fro what I understand the original Sega CD version is the more atmospheric game and some tension was lost for the Saturn version, but I’m sure it’ll still be a fun game.


#487

Sweet Castlevania collection.


#488

Thanks! Ive bought and sold SoTN twice so far in my life. Time to buy it a 3rd time :frowning: I have the ps2 games somewhere as well but I’m debating if the 3d games are even worth displaying.


#489

Regarding Sonic 1 and if US buyers like the PAL cover and find it on holiday or on Ebay: It runs on an unmodded Genesis just fine and in proper 60Hz. No region lock at all.

I was given an old laptop by a co-worker I installed Ubuntu on it and use it for watching MLIG livestreams and it works great for Mame when connected via HDMI.

I picked up some games for $1.50 each at a couple thrift stores:

I was amazed to find both of these monitors for $9.99 each but they work great. I have to rethink my setup a little now as I have extra HDMI options.

There are a couple of other things I need to take pictures.

Is that Iconoclasts? How is the game? I’m playing Celeste now and I had my eye on Iconoclasts as my next game.


#492

First edition Sega SG1000 ‘German’ console arrived. Very rare.

For some reason I also got a SG1000 II Steering wheel…


#493

Wow. How does it play?


#494

D, when are you opening your museum? And can I be the first in line?


#495

Had to go to work so haven’t tested. I can usually fix them though if there are issues. And I’ll restore it visually pretty easily too.

I honestly do have at least an exhibition-level collection of old rarities. Maybe at a convention or something? Wouldn’t know where to start.


#496

I hope you know that if I ever vacation in Australia I am going to have to drop by your place and also buy you a drink.


#497

This is crazy. After seeing D.lo’s post about Fire Rock in the guess the game-thread, I started rewatching Chrontendo episode 32 where the game is featured. Just when i read your post, Dr. Sparkle (the narrator/creater of Chrontendo) mentions that the guy that made Fire Rock also made a game called Mansion of Hidden Souls. What a coincidence.


#498

Heh, so is Mansion of Hidden Souls any good?

Fire Rock is… not-ish. It really hits my childhood love of ‘exploring non-linear hidden underground’ games (Montezuma’s Revenge, Miracle or Arumana, The Maze of Galious, Goonies 2 etc) but it is of course janky like all those second-tier FDS dev games (GOG, Use etc).

I still enjoy it with the jank though, reminds me of old PC games on Apple, C64 etc.


#499

I have no idea as i hadnt heard about it, but it looks decent at least. Fire Rock looked pretty bad yeah, but then again Dr Sparkle often trash games that i like (Zelda 2 comes to mind).


#500

Isn’t Mansion of Hidden Soulss a conpletely different game on Sega CD and Saturn? I seem to remember reading that somewhere.


#501

Yeah, the Saturn Mansion game is more of a sequel. Most people seem to prefer the Sega CD game as the atmosphere was creepier and it stood out as more unique for its generation. I only played the Saturn one briefly and wasn’t that into it. I loved the first game although it was really short and I beat it on a rental.
