I can’t stop buying from this place…..

Guys, this place keeps putting out more and more stock, and the prices of all the retro software are remaining at the same generic price no matter the title. If this place continues to do this I am going to be broke in a few short months. I seriously mean it! πŸ˜€

What would you do in my position? On the one hand I know this can’t last forever and I should buy up while the pickings are good, but on the other hand I should really be thinking of the money I’m spending…. Quite the conundrum….

Anyway, now to the latest haul….

I decided to go through the Famicom and Super Famicom titles just for something different this time. I really wish I knew what titles I should be looking for for FC/SFC though, so if any of you guys know what titles are the hardest to come by please let me know. You can see I got a few GunNacs as I know they are quite rare, but the rest were chosen based on the company names and graphics on the carts – yes, I’m still a Famicom newb.

Without further ado, the stuff!

The Famicom stuff. Hopefully I picked up a few hard to come by titles?

3DO and a few other bits and pieces. I am sooooo damn happy I managed to score myself a RoadRash – I have been on the hunt for one of these for more than a year! To get it this cheap, and with so many other great games is purely the icing on the cake. Oh and to get an L-Dis for the PCE was great news too – one shooter that was missing from my CDROM2 pile.

Only a few Dreamcast titles this time. There weren’t many new ones there, although I might have just missed the rush when they first were put up.

Few more NeoGeoCD games, plus some PS1 disks, and one lonely MegaCD. I seriously hope they put more NeogeoCD games out. Actually scratch that, wish they would put AES games out at the same price instead! πŸ˜€

A nice boxed PCEngine Duo. I gave this a quick test and the sound seemed a little bit quiet, so it might need a cap replacement soon, but other than that it’s in nice shape.

A few Saturn games. Saturn games seem to be reducing in numbers there now, but every time I go I still run through them to make sure they haven’t put a Radiant Silvergun out.

Super Famicom. Again, I don’t really know which titles are hard to come by and which aren’t. I was sure I didn’t have some of these titles, so I grabbed them, but there are so many more there I don’t have any idea about. If any of you guys can recommend some games that I should be picking up for the SFC, please let me know.

Well, that’s the latest. Not a bad pile even by Japanese standards. πŸ˜€

Sean @ RetroOtaku, you have to get your arse into gear and get over here!! We will probably have to hire a small truck, but it will be well worth it believe me. πŸ˜€


  1. Jaw dropping stuff Hollo – I hope it never ends! πŸ™‚

    So how much for surface shipping on that Duo? ;P

    1. Me too! But that’ll mean the money has to keep flowing as well…. I’ll cross that bridge later though. πŸ˜€

      I reckon I’ll be keeping that Duo, but I reckon I will be selling my unboxed one now though.

  2. IMO keep cleaning the place out. Get it all back home, and then filter it – there will be tons of stuff that’s crap, duplicate, just not what you’re into, get rid of that and keep the best for yourself. If you balance it right, you’ll be able to shift the crappy stuff and get all your money back πŸ™‚

    1. Yep I reckon you’re right Dave, but the only trouble is finding the cash to actually grab stuff. Still, these kind of deals are unheard of even here, so I have to do it while I can – even if it means maxing out the cards for a short time.

      Crap, I think I was talked into buying more far too easily! πŸ˜€

  3. Awesome stuff! I just stumbled on this site for the first time. Do you live in Japan?

    1. Yep, been here for a while now.

      Thanks for taking the time to have a look at the site Ted – much appreciated. πŸ™‚

  4. Nice Duo. They’re all so spiffy-looking. And man, Daytona USA. Picked that one up recently. I’m having trouble drifiting in this game (and it seems you must learn to do it) but the music is worth the price of admission alone.


    1. Gotta have love for Daytona! So many memories attached to the arcade version. I still don’t have it for the Dreamcast which is bit of a bummer, but I am not in a position to complain too much. πŸ˜€

  5. Unbelievable stuff Hollo! I hope there are a few titles left by the time we make it to Nippon πŸ˜‰ Not sure if Wifey will be too happy if we hire a truck and fill it up… But I do like the idea πŸ˜€

    1. When she understands how much it will save her in the long run she’ll come around – maybe. πŸ˜€

      Seriously though Sean, it’s unbelievable what’s going on in this place! I just hope it’s still running by the time you get over here….
