This is not the first time I’ve done some trading with StopXWhispering over at Retro-Video-Gaming. And I’ve learned to get pretty excited about it.
Want to see first hand one of the subtle differences between a guy gamer and a girl gamer?
I, The SegaDude, put some games into a box and shipped them to StopXWhispering (I was actually a bite late doing this).
Once we figured out what we were going to trade StopXWhispering had shipped her package of games the very next day. And it was packed full of games as well as genuine bonafide enthusiasm!
Not only did I get the amazing games that I was expecting but I also got a very nice hand written letter and tons of cool extras… including Sega bags! That’s right, Sega bags. How cool is that?!
I don’t know what to do with them yet but they are awesome. I feel like StopXWhispering traveled into the past when Sega was king and snagged the bags. However, I suspect they might have come from her recent trip to Japan.
As soon as I saw the box I knew who it came from 🙂 And upon opening it I discovered a lot of fun extras!
Check out those Sega bags! Japan truly is the video gaming Mecca of the world. And look at the wealth of games spilling out of this package!
It will take me a long time to make gameplay footage for all 12 games so I’m going to post without the videos to show off my new loot. And I’m going to have to follow-up with StopXWhispering to make sure she’s just as happy with the games I have sent her.
I believe there were only two Back to the Future games for the Sega Master System and now I have them both! They are both complete and in Excellent shape!
In the late 90’s I had the chance to trade for Bank Panic but for some reason I didn’t believe the guy who told me he had it. We were emailing and there were no pictures and because I hadn’t heard of it before and I didn’t think it was real. I’m normally very trusting and I don’t recall why I hesitated, but I did. Now, well over a decade later StopXWhispering has corrected my mistake!
Before the package arrived I had actually forgotten that Battle Out Run was coming and I bought it at a local game shop a few weeks before. Doh!
But both are complete and in amazing shape so I’ll be able to trade or sell one of them. But not before taking the perfect condition case to upgrade another game of mine. It all works out 🙂
You remember Cool Spot, right? The red spot from your 7-Up bottle. Who knew he’d make for a cool little platformer. Complete and in amazing shape!
This is my third copy of Dynamite Duke! I have it for the Genesis and Japanese Mega Drive and now for the Master System too. If I ever find a fourth version I’ll take it too. Complete and in amazing condition!
Klax is a fun puzzle game that I’ve played a fair bit on the Genesis. I’m happy to have the Master System version too. Complete and in awesome condition!
Take a look at Space Gun. What a great cover! You can play it with the joystick and or Light Phaser and it’s pretty good. Not amazing but fun enough. The pace is a bit slow but this is a very cool Light Gun game. I took it for a test run and got to level 5. Turns out my Light Phaser is broken. I had to use the joystick mode. I can’t help but think it would be a lot more fun with the gun. It’s complete and in amazing condition!
I haven’t had a chance to try these two out yet. But based on the covers alone I will love adding them to the collection. The condition on these two is not as pristine as the others above but they are still complete and in great shape. Very exciting stuff.
I have the Tectoy version of the Flintstones in OK shape but now I have the PAL version in better shape and complete. The condition is not amazing but it’s certainly good enough.
Tom and Jerry is another cool looking game that I haven’t yet had a chance to try out. It’s complete and in amazing condition!
I’m actually a little over whelmed with these titles and their condition. I’m really pleased. But it doesn’t stop here. StopXWhispering also got me two Sega Mark III games for my collection.
The condition is not perfect but for very old cardboard cases they are in great shape! It’s been a very long time since I’ve added to my Sega Mark III collection and I’m now up to 40 boxed games!
When I was cleaning up I discovered something that I had over looked and almost threw out.
Check out the little black bird side-kick for Psycho Fox. He’s very well done! And I’ve placed him with some of my other Bead Art. Maybe he should be on one of the Master System Shelves but he nicely completed the symmetry on the Genesis shelves. The Sonic and Opa Opa were also made by and given to me by StopXWhispering. Thank you!
Don’t know the little bird? Have a look here.
Sooo… wow. Very fun. It’s much better trading then just buying all the time. I really enjoyed this. Thank you StopXWhispering! Lets do it again sometime 🙂
STOPXWHISPERING has posted the games I sent her for this trade. Check out the flip side here.
WOW. I need to see about trading with both of you guys one of these days, lol. Let me know how that Flash game is, as I passed up on it years back and am kicking myself. You got some treasures there, friend! Dynamite Duke on the SMS is the last one you’ll see, as there was no Game Gear port as far as I know. The game is just as cheesy but funny as it is on the other systems.
And yeah, Space Gun is MUCH better with the Light Phaser than with the controller!
That’s good to hear about Space Gun. I kind of like that game already. I’ll have to dig through my stuff and find another Light Phaser.
I just tried the Flash and maybe it has potential. My first impression is it’s not that great. It’s definitely a platformer with lots of jumping and collecting pick-ups. Flash attacks by spinning into people and he has a close range attack that I seemed to miss with a lot. You take about 3 hits before before losing a life which is good but it’s missing something. I only gave it about 5 minutes so more time would be needed to do it justice.
I’m so happy it arrived safely! 😀 And I’m happy that you’re satisfied with the trade ^_^ I’m still waiting for my package, but that’s ok, I already have games piling up on my desk even after clearing all the ones from japan! haha.. Now it’s mainly japanese N64, Sega Saturn and Playstation 1
geelw! Just let me know if you wanna trade ;D I have a bunch of doubles!
I’m also happy they arrived. Thank you for the great games! Hopefully you’ll get my package any day now.
I think even your backlog (giant pile of new arrivals) of games would make an interesting post! 🙂
