I’ve wanted Nadia The Secret Of Blue Water for a while now. Can’t say why. It’s just a JRPG that I cannot play. The RPG was my favorite genre back in the day and I’m sure that has a lot to do with it. Not only does this title looks like it might be a good one it also has interesting artwork and it’s complete and in Excellent condition. I’m guessing it was a cartoon back in Japan.
Nadia The Secret Of Blue Water
I never knew of Dynamite Headdy back when it was new but since then I’ve often heard that it’s a very good platformer. I don’t particularly like the cover art. It’s a bit busy and plain at the same time. But the game itself does look like it could be good. The graphics are impressive for color, details and the amount of stuff these developers managed to get on the screen all at once. And I also like how the first level looks like a stage set. It seems to have a lot going for it including being complete and in Excellent condition.
Rolo To The Rescue is another decent looking platformer. But… I hate pink. Nothing against the color but on old games like this my first thought is that the game has suffered some sun fading. Pink stresses me out. But fortunately in this case the pink is actually pink. And even though this is an EA title with their yellow tab cart and a fat case it is complete and in Excellent condition. I say this even though there is a sticker on the outside of the case. I can’t read it but it does look like it might be an original retail label from when it was new. Not something from the store it was sold in but from EA. If that is the case I’m OK with the label being there. Can anyone read it for me? 🙂
So for better or for worse, chalk up another cute video game for the collection.
Nadia The Secret Of Blue Water – $25
Dynamite Headdy- $24.00
Rolo To The Rescue- $23.00
Plus $22 for shipping for all three. Which is close to $31 per game. I don’t know what happened here… These games are not so exciting as to merit this price. For the life of me I can’t remember why I decided to go ahead with this. But what’s done is done.
And don’t forget the Pier Solar HD Kickstarter campaign is still running and it’s now fully funded! There is still time to get this excellent RPG 🙂
Nice haul! Nadia is a highly desired game among anime RPG fans (I don’t have it yet), thus the price point (it was a lot higher a few years back). So you got a great deal I think. Dynamite Headdy is a Treasure classic and the US version is VERY different in a few stages. Another deal for you! Rolo I have as well and yes, that sticker is on every copy of the game. I’m not sure how rare it is, but I’ve never seen a complete one for under $20.
BTW, My copy of Pier Solar should arrive today or tomorrow (whee!), so I’m psyched about that. That will get a post of its own for sure…
Hey geelw! Thank’s for making me feel better about these purchases 🙂 It’s also good to know that about the Rolo sticker. I thought about trying to peal it off but not anymore.
Definitely post a picture of your Pier Solar when you get it. And then give some impressions when you get to try it out.
If it was released back when the Genesis was King I’m sure it would be considered a classic now and certainly one of the best RPG’s for the system.
What region is your Pier Solar? If it’s the Genesis Posterity Edition I’m going to be very jelious 😛
The sticker reads “BIG CHANCE” and then in the smaller text something about a coupon ;D
Looking at the color of the sticker though it’s probably something from the manufacturer of the game and not the retail store.
I have both Rolo to the Rescue and Dynamite Headdy, I love platformers! 😀 And these two are great! Especially Rolo!! It’s actually really clever, you get to play as several different characters that you can switch between and they all have special abilities that you need to use to advance in the game and reach certain areas. It’s really fun and challenging!
Thanks stopxwhispering! I had no idea what the label read and it’s nice having the insight. Thank you 🙂
Sounds like Rolo will be similar to Psycho Fox for the Sega Master System. I loved that game… I know you do too. I’ve seen you beat it!
There are a few MD games with factory labels on them including Asian versions of some games (I think Ex-Ranza has a sticker on the HK version case that says in fact, “ASIAN VERSION” – which means it has an English manual (amusingly enough, a UK one!) for non-Japanese gamers in HK). As a general rule, i never touch them unless it’s a price sticker that’s easily removed. Some imports shops have small cute stickers that I’ve left on the back of cases or boxes because they’re nice for a chuckle every now and then…
No problem ^_^
Yes it has some similarities ^^ I LOOOOOVE Psycho Fox though ^_^ It’s just so cuuuuute!!!
Have you attempted to beat it yet? ;D
I haven’t yet tried to beat Psycho Fox. I use to play it a lot back when it was new and it was hard! But even still I really liked it. I know I’ll play it again… I don’t know if I’ll ever beat it but I’ll play it again for sure. Very cool little game 🙂
