Yeah the x68000 boxes are fantastic. Some are in hard plastic cases with a clear front. The art books/instruction manuals are amazing too (Gradius II). The actual games themselves are pretty amazing as well.... especially considering Capcom used these computers to develop CPS arcade games.

Yup, I've got Akumajou, Final Fight, Strider etc on x68k. Here's my small, but growing collection


The Castlevania installment on X68K does look to be pretty solid, someday I need to get the PS1 version of that. Incredible collection, as always.

@wholesalewatch648 - that's one of the hard things to get used to at first... a lot of times in the beginning I noticed that the cost of the actual item was far less than all the other fees, haha. Any hints on what you rescued?  Cheesy

@Nightstar699  - yeah definitely check out Castlevania Chronicles on PS1. If you like classical styled Castlevanias vs the Metroidvania trend, you'll really dig it. It's probably my favorite Castlevania to play... more so that SotN.

You can play CV Chronicles on PSP as well of course.  I think AD X68000 is the most visually and audibly impressive actually.  It's not as polished as Rondo of Blood but I think ity has more charm.  

It certainly is great to watch longplays of on a rainy day mind:

Oh, I'd prefer it to SotN by a long shot. SotN looks and sounds great, sure, but I honestly can't stand Metroidvania type stuff. Chronicles/X68K just looks like a really solid entry to the classic gameplay style.

Was it on the PSP "Dracula X remix" thing? I forgot. I've beaten the Sharp version, but have yet to get around to beating Chronicles. I wish they made more Castlevanias like these. I hate Metroidvanias too.

On a side note, doing it up SEGA style today. If you know your JPN Megadrive library, the games below "shouldn't exist"  Wink

Oh wow, a Japanese Master System release which was actually called the Master System. I didn't know such a thing existed until now. And what's that included with Super Shinobi, by the way?

@wholesalewatch648 ooh I'm at a bit of a disadvantage, was never a big smash brothers kind of guy  Embarrassed

@Nightstar699 what's unique about the japanese SMS too is that it has built-in "FM Sound" support which is not available on the Western SMS or stock on the SEGA Mark III (need the separate add-on). Supposedly FM Sound supported games are greatly enhanced.

The record with Revenge of Shinobi is a soundtrack for an 80s live action TV Show called Kage no Gundan. I used to watch it religiously every Sunday night. Feature Sonny Chiba and some fantastic ninja action. I put them together because it's another example of how the Japanese love to "steal" photos/art for their game covers  Grin

I too am not big on Smash/party-style fighters, I'm just too dedicated to traditional one-on-one fighting games, a la Street Fighter or Samurai Shodown, Smash seems like a completely different world to me. Hm, I have heard the FM enhance soundtrack to Kenseiden (which is one of my favorite SMS games) and yeah, I gotta say it's pretty cool. Congrats on getting that, as much as I love the SMS (it's tied with Saturn as my favorite Sega console) my one complaint about it is just that the soundchip is... ugh. Just not a fan of it. Kage no Gundan sounds cool, always liked Sonny Chiba since I saw Kill Bill. I was thinking that record was a rare Super Shinobi soundtrack or something.

Also, my finds post will be coming in a few days. Just waiting for the last few games to arrive...

I love the SMD and Kage no Gundan stuff.  At first I thought the LP was of this:



Nice JP repros too - I'm doing something similar with Famicom games.

Really nice to see that JP SMS.  I think I prefer the Mark III overall - it's almost like a Famicom equivalent perhaps.  Maybe because we had a Mark 2 and Mark 1 SMS as kids.  Alex Kidd, Asterix, Wonderbo 3 (Dragon's Trap) - so manygreat games.  Can't wait to play through them on the Everdrive!
