Here are another three new additions for the collection. Both Patlabor and Junction are in excellent condition. I’m going to say Yu Yu Hakusho Gaiden is only very good because of two marks at the top of the front cover (top left and top right; I hate when the cover has damage but otherwise it’s excellent).
Patlabor and Yu Yu Hakusho Gaiden are both adventures games and the Japanese language will prevent me from being able to play them. Junction is a puzzle game that looks like it could have some potential but I’ll have to play it for a bit to find out for sure.
Yu Yu Hakusho Gaiden $8
With about $11 in shipping for all three.
*Note: The last two ‘New Additions‘ posts (including this one) detailed games that came in the same shipment. I broke them up into smaller posts so that I didn’t have to take pics, crop/edit and write them all up in the same sitting. So when you see the shipping cost above it’s a bit skewed. I’ll always show exactly what games cost me but if shipping seems low it could be because I received a large package and didn’t write them all up at once. My next ‘New Additions‘ will include four games and they will be the last of package of ten games that I received from the ebay seller Hit-Japan.
Omg! Haha it’s like we bump into the same things simultaneously all the time! I just got Patlabor in my mailbox today! however my edition was for Nintendo Famicom ^_^ I had never heard about it before I saw it on a Swedish trading site. I bought it as soon as I read it was a platformer ;D haha
You move fast! I just saw the link you added for me. Thank you very much 🙂
Maybe I’ll make a little banner at the size you use but what you did is very cool.
It is kinda small world-ish that we’re picking up the same stuff. Specially something obscure like Patlabor. I thought it was an adventure game. I didn’t know it was a platformer. Maybe the Famicom version is very different? I’ll to try it out and see what it’s all about.
I just made a gameplay video of Patlabor that I recorded from the Famicom Disk System, you can check it out here and see if it’s any different?
Just let me know if you have a banner you’d prefer to use ^_^
Thanks for showing your Patlabor for the Famicom. It seems to be very different from the Mega Drive version. I tried playing mine for a while and it feel like a RPG. I could walk around what felt like a Police base and talk to different characters stationed there. There were four Mech Robots parked in the base but I could never get anywhere. I couldn’t get into the robots and I couldn’t advance the story. Without knowing Japanese the Mega Drive version is not playable. I couldn’t find any youtube videos that show the actual game play. So I can’t say for sure if the Mega Drive version is an Adventure, RPG, strategy or other.
I think you got the better version! 🙂 Yours looks like a good fun platformer!
By the way, I LOVE your “a RETRO VIDEO GAMING Production” credit at the end. Very nice fun touch 🙂
I will play with Photoshop a bit to see if I can make a banner at the size you use. But really the one you posted for me is very nice. Thank you for doing that!
