I’m starting to notice that most of the games I’ve been picking up have been Japanese Mega Drive games. It’s not really a problem and it wasn’t a conscious decision it just sorta of happened. I can’t really pin-point why but I’m guessing I have had more luck finding Japanese games that meet my interests; such as being in good condition, having good art work/covers and reasonable prices.
When I first put this little blog together I noticed that my collection was very closely split between Genesis and Mega Drive. Right now after the addition of the items below I’m sitting at 121 Genesis titles and 115 Mega Drive titles (and 189 Master System games). It’s not too critical but I think I’d like to keep this split pretty close. Specially since I’ve been mulling over the idea of getting a second book shelf to help deal with my Growing Pains and Seventh Shelf problem. With a close to even split I’ll be able to display Genesis games on one shelf and Mega Drive games on the other. My Master System and Mark III games might span both book shelves taking up one or two shelves at the bottom of the collection.
These five new additions are all Genesis games. I found them on ebay from the same seller. It was Marvel Land that caught my eye first. If I’m going buy one item from a seller I often look to see if they have any others I might want. This helps reduce the per item shipping cost and I often send a message to the seller and make an offer for a bulk purchase. In this case these games cost me $75 including shipping. So that’s $15 per game. Which is less than what it would have cost if I didn’t send the seller an offer. I find that most will agree or at least have a counter offer if you seem reasonable.
Marvel Land is in Excellent Condition. Near mint but not quite.
Toxic Crusader is also in excellent condition but there are some speckles on the cart label and I can’t tell if that’s how it is or if it’s damaged. So I’m just going to list this one as in Good Condition.
Wolverine Adamantium Rage would be in mint condition except the cart label on it also has speckling similar to Toxic Crusader so again I’m just going to list it as in Good Condition.
Super Street Fighter 2 is in Excellent Condition.
ToeJam & Earl Panic on Funkotron is in Very Good Condition. The manual is keeping it from being in excellent condition.
