I know many collectors (like me) are careful or picky with what they buy, but sometimes you end up getting the most unusual forms of damage or spoiling of a games condition. For example, I went to a car boot sale on a Sunday morning (as I do) and I bought a complete in box copy of Dynablasters, to replace my unboxed copy. This is what it looks like:



Incase you can't see it well, someone created stab holes, damaging the box, manual and inner case. My question: WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED AND WHY?!

Did some kid see the game, get a pair of scissors and go *insert famous stabber's name here* on it? I can't even grasp the image of some idiot kid with a sharp object maniacally stabbing a game, going so far to pierce the inner casing and the other end of the box!

So what items have people bought in a strange/stranger condition?

Hey everyone, I'm a bit busy since I'm studying for A-Levels (god help me). But here are the four Mega CD games I got in the last few weeks.


Left to right
Top: Psychic Detective Volume 3: Aya and Theme Park
Bottom: WWF Rage in the Cage and Paws of Fury

There is a Domark title, not a great one, I bet it's no different to a Mega Drive version with the poor quality opening. The odd thing is that the Paws of Fury's front cover, manual and CD are the German release Paws of Fury, but back cover is the European BRUTAL: Paws of Fury. Isn't that strange, I've checked they are both authentic covers, how could that happen? Did the seller swap two cases and forgot to check? To prove my point:


In other news, went to my local carboot Sunday morning and bought this:


A SWEET ASS SONIC HELMET!

Amount Paid:
WWF Rage in the Cage 10.75
Theme Park 25
Paws of Fury 20
Psychic Detective Series 3: AYA 0.99

I just got into thinking, on gamesniped, nicola made a post about what he would put as museum pieces for a gaming museum. I was just wondering if there was a proper permanent Video Game Museum or Gallery, what would be in it?

Happy/Merry Christmas/Hanukha/Quanza/Holidays everyone! It's Christmas Eve and like the tradition goes, me, my sister and my parents get presents from eachother, then get pressies from the rest of my family on Christmas Day! So today I got money, a poster, the Guinness World Records Book and DJ HERO!!!

Not only that but a parcel arrived at my door, Cyborg 009!


I may open this sealed game because I heard it's quite good and I might want to play it. I paid 4.28 for it. Well all I can say is now everyone have a great and fun time!!

Total cost:
577.53

NOTE: Futher checking from last time, I now have 51 Games is you count Cobra Command/Sol-Feace as one game, because they were bundled together in Europe. Therefore if you don't I actually have 52 so sorry for jumping the gun ^^'

Yesterday I recieved Eternal Champions: Challenge of the Darkside, originally it was on Buy It Now for 16.99 (lower than I usually find it), but out of luck, the guy accepted an offer I made of 15, and now it's here!


So now I've achieved 50 games!! As far as I know, there are a little over 210 official unique game releases, this means I'm less than 1/4 of my collection complete!

Never thought this day would come after a year and three months of collecting. Sure it's got a bit of damage on the seal but this is sealed and I only paid 18!

Hello everyone, A Levels have started becoming more challenging, and more facinating (especially Computer Studies). But just because I have school and a 5 day a week job doesn't stop me TRYING to increase the Mega CD collection. So, thanks to the money I made from selling my old Robosapien and the one penny Yumemi Mystery Mansion

Go V Here V to see what I mean:

Yes, remember them? They were once the greatest game publishers in the cult-phenomenom demographic, getting the rights to popular Japanese titles for small systems (Sega CD and Turbograpfx CD mainly, but the Playstation was small when they started publishing games for it) and giving them the red-carpet treatment to America, great voice acting and glossy front covers. Then the 2000s came and...yeah...

But now that I've got your attention, I've got my first Working Designs game! Read on to see!

Hey everyone! I'm not feeling well and I've been exhausted from both Sixth Form and working cleaning job...good god I'm tired...

ANYWAY!!!! Got a new game today! Hooray!! That game is...



Ecco the Dolphin, it may be the same game as the Megadrive version but as an art form this game is epic, the newly animated intro and the soundtrack are just immense. I also got the spine card and let me say that this is the most mint spine card I've ever seen, no creases, no tears, no stains, it just looked like it was just taken out of a sealed copy.

Well I hope I get better, soon. Got another day ahead (a half day at school, go me)

Amount paid:
12.99
Total cost: 485.64
