Here are two new additions for the collection. Both are for the Japanese Mega Drive.
Osomatsu-kun – Hachamecha Gekijō is crazy. It’s a fun addition to the collection because it’s not very language dependent and it’s so bizarre. The graphics are nice but as a platformer it’s just OK. It actually reminded me of Kato & Ken for the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine. Although it’s not that weird.
I didn’t notice right away but the cart has some damage. A small portion of it has a white mark as if that area had been rubbed away. I would have said it was in Excellent condition but instead I’ll say it’s in Very Good condition.
Virtua Racing I got because I was curious about the only Mega Drive game that has a special processor(chip) built onto the cart to help render the graphics. This additional chip is why Virtua Racing can’t be emulated.
But like most games that were once amazing mostly because of their graphics Virtua Racing isn’t all that exciting anymore. What I did notice is that Virtua Racing does appear to be pretty smooth which I imagine would have been pretty impressive back in the day.
Everything is in great shape except there is a little bit of damage along the top edge of the front cover. Just like Osomatsu-kun – Hachamecha Gekijō I’m going give Virtua Racing a rating of Very Good instead of Excellent because of its small blemish.
Osomatsu-kun – Hachamecha Gekijō – $5.00
Virtua Racing – $5.00
Plus about $10.00 for shipping.
