I have a loose target of spending $20 per game including shipping, so it should have been obvious that I would have busted up my target price when putting in an ebay ‘best offer’ price of $20 for a game that listed $8 for shipping… but how was I suspose to know that the seller would accept a $20 offer on a game that listed for $35?!
Sometimes I bid on games that I know I just wont win.. but this time I did win. I tried to find another game or two that I might want from the seller in an effort to get the cost per game down but there was nothing else worth while. And that is why my Thunder Fox cost me $28. Even though it’s not a great game I do like the genre and it’s complete and in Excellent Condition.
It reminds me a little bit of Last Battle.
Thunder Fox Gameplay
I once bid up to $160.00 on a copy of Eliminate Down knowing full well that I would not win that auction. And I didn’t win but I wanted to be a part of that very elusive title if only in a very small way 🙂
I think it went for over $600 by the end. I don’t much like people with lots and lots of money…
Ultraman cost $19 including shipping and it’s complete and in Excellent Condition. It’s not a great game but I really like the lame cover art and Ultraman is cool all on his own. This is a fun addition to the collection.
I played Ultraman for a while and I cannot figure out how to beat the first stage. Once you’ve beaten the monster Bemular down to zero health his meter states “finish”… and I could not figure out the correct move/attack. Even thought the person playing in the video clip had no trouble at all.
I even searched the Internet and I could not find the answer! Anyone know how?
Oh, that Ultraman game is a PAAAAAIIIIN. I beat that dumb boss once by sheer luck (I think the move is in the manual or some Japanese guy wrote it down for me when he found out I had the game), but haven’t been able to do it again.
Thunder Fox is yeah… kind of lame, but fun in that funky old MD way. I gave up on finding Eliminate Down long ago for a fair price, but it’s a game I could have had for (eek!) about $88 new (minus shipping) back around 1995 or ’96. I passed on it then thinking it was overpriced! Stupid!! One day I should list all the deals I’ve missed out on, lol…
Ha! Never ever list the deals you missed out on 🙂 You’ll cry for days on end! I try to focus on the little gems that I think were good deals.
You shouldn’t feel bad for passing up Eliminate Down for $88. There was no way to know. And even $88 for one Mega Drive game is a lot of coin regardless.
I really want to know that finishing move in Ultraman! I want to take down at least one boss 🙂 Just one!
I’ve been playing around with recording my own gameplay footage so I don’t have to poach clips from other games. Turns out, it’s a lot of work!
This is why I was playing Ultraman. So on top of figuring out how to record I also have to contend with being really bad at the game and producing a pretty boring gameplay clip! 😛
Maybe I’ll be ready for next week.
Lol… Play a game you like first before working with an Ultraman, I say. In the case of that cheap Eliminate Down, I’m Kicking myself because I think I spent that money on a bunch of closeout SNES titles, none of which were that good in retrospect.
Then again, the good deals I’ve gotten over the years (Princess Crown for well under $10!) have made up for some of the things I’ve missed out on…
I just looked up Princess Crown. I found the Sega Saturn game. Is that the one? It looks pretty good. Is there an English version?
