Very slowly my Genesis collection is growing again. It’s been so much more afordable to buy Japanese Mega Drive games that I found my Mega Drive collection has started to run away from my Genesis numbers. So it’s nice to finally start to inject the Genesis side with some reasonable titles. Nothing too exciting here but these are good for the book shelf 🙂
World Heroes looks a lot like all the other 2D fighters that aren’t as good as Street Fighter. It doesn’t look bad but I’m guessing it was over shadowed by many much better Fighters despite getting it’s own sequal. It’s likely that the original NEO GEO version was better. It’s complete and in Excellent Condition and pretty cheap at $9.50 including shipping.

DJ Boy is normally the kind of cute action game that wouldn’t get much interest from me. But I believe this title was pretty popular and I think I’ll check it out someday. This copy is complete and in Very Good condition and cost $15 including shipping.

I was excited to find Dashin’ Desperadoes only because I have never seen or heard of it before. This rarely happens. I definiately don’t have all Genesis titles commited to memory but for the most part I’ll reconnize any Genesis game at some level. And then to find a never before seen game at a local video game store complete and in Excellent Condition for $4 was a very cool surprise.

I can thank my buddy Nintendo Joe at MyNintendoDimension for Dashin’ Desperadoes. He took me the store where I found this one. Four dollars! 😀
Never heard of Dashin’ Desperadoes either! Any good?? Did it ever get a European release?
Great finds! 😀 I wish we had stores where I could find games for 4 dollars
I just played some Dashin’ Desperadoes and it’s much better than I thought it would be. It’s pretty fun. I’d say it’s kind of a puzzle / racing game.
It’s always two players. Two people or a player and the AI. It’s a race to get to your lady friend at the end of the stage.
Thought out the stage you’ll come across obstacles like a dog, bird, rushing water or a dude opening a door on you. If you don’t avoid any of these things you’ll get stunned briefly while your opponent gets to keep on racing ahead.
In addition to jumping and throwing weapons (that you can pickup through out the stage) you also have a dash/roll which you can use to stun the other player or use it to avoid stuff. Of course the other player can do everything you can do too.
The graphics are very nice and it’s a really fast moving game.
By the fourth stage it was getting pretty hard but I can tell there are all sorts of tricks and short cuts to find on each level. It feels like Data East really put some thought into this game.
I don’t think you can save your progress. You start with 3 credits and you can earn more with points.
It looks like you can get the cart only pretty cheap online.
The store I found this game at was just OK. Most game where pretty expensive or pretty beat up. But still I was happy to come away with just this little game 🙂
