  1. That’s awesome! What a wife you’ve got! πŸ˜€ I wish my fiancΓ©e would know how to find stuff I wanted, but I basically just have to tell him, like send a link to the actual auction or site that sells it XD
    I got Verytex in 2013, I paid around 80 CAD for it then.
    I wouldn’t be able to trade in stuff to get better stuff.. basically because I’m a major hoarder XD
    You’ve changed the name of your site!!!! O_O To me you will still always be THESEGADUDE though ^_^ With the massive SEGA COLLECTION πŸ˜€


    • Ah, I wish I could hoard! πŸ˜› But so far I don’t mind the purging I’ve done. I really am more fond of games on cartridge than on CD or DVD disks.
      Yes, I’ve changed the site name! I was attached to TheSegaCollection but I wanted a name that would make more sense for Sega and non-Sega games. I’m still sticking with the Sega Dude as my online handle and alter ego! πŸ˜›
      I haven’t posted about it yet but I’ve got a large amount of Sega Mega Drive and Genesis games that I’ve recently injected into the collection! Sega is still definitely my focus. I’m sure it always will be. But I want to also include SNES, NES, TubroGrafx-16 and Neo Geo!


  2. Hmmmmm. Verytex is worth THAT much now? Yikes. I forgot what I paid for mine, but then again, it was in a bulk MD purchase I pulled the trigger on and was surprised I won a bunch of years back on ebay. Your wife rocks, by the way! I know some guys who’s significant others wouldn’t go anywhere near their collections (and that’s too bad!) or buy them anything unless it was a free cardboard box to dump everything into, lol.


    • Worth is all relative. I’ve seen Verytex listed on ebay for $120 CAD by several sellers. Does it sell at that price? Who knows?!
      Ah, yes, I remember the days of buying in bulk. Wonderful times πŸ™‚ I’ve seen your Mega Drive collection and you’ve got some real gems in there. Hold on and keep enjoying them!
      Your cardboard box joke would have been very funny if it weren’t so scary!!! πŸ˜› lol


  3. It must have felt pretty good to have gotten rid of most of that junk for a few really cool games. Game Swap came through for you and that’s awesome… especially since they are local:) How much did you get for Chrono Cross? I don’t know if the game was any good, but it has a cool cover.

    Yes it’s true, your wife has me in her service as well, but at least it is all for a worthy cause. Enjoy the game!
