>Thirty or something, all but maybe four have manuals and are in mostly decent condition.
>Eyes set on Fatal Rewind, Urban Strike, Chakan, and Eternal Champions.
Each one is priced at like, $20-to-$30 but I haven't an idea on which to get, they're all pretty neat. Has anyone played any of those, and what did you think of it?

    Literally just emulate them first, then you can decide which one you like the most

    I guess if it were up to me I would go with Urban Strike, those are all completely different types of games though. Any other shmups or platformers?

    Chakan = absolute garbage. Eternal Champions = Inferior SF2 clone. Urban Strike = boring isometric helicopter shooter with no music, same as Jungle Strike/Desert Strike. No experience with the 4th game.

      How would you rate Blades of Vengence? Theyve got that too, its just a little pricier.

      I'm not a fan of emulation I'm afraid.

        Not that anon but Blade of Vengeance is good imo

        If you can't emulate before buying at least look at some gameplay videos on YouTube

        I'm not a fan of you I'm afraid imagine being this moronic. I hope whatever game you pay out the ass for is terrible.

        I know how emuhomosexuals are on this board, but he isn't telling you to JUST emulate instead.
        He's suggesting that you try the first couple of levels via emulation; kinda like trying at a kiosk before you buy.

          Yea this is definitely a good idea.

          The genesis is one of my favorite systems to collect for. Cib genesis games are particularly nice.
          I got that MUSHA for $50 before the cost for that got crazy.

            Hmmm. When you put it like that, I suppose it wouldn't hurt to look at it that way. I'll see about finding a Genesis Emulator.

            [...]

            Believe it or not the EWJ box is actually in decent condition, though I think the shop has a loose cart available.
            As a long time Battletech fan I absolutely would get it, but with the rest that are there I'm hoping to leave with at least two. Thanks man.

      This, you are being scammed, when they put actual good games worth a damn they will try to force you to pay 50usd at less, and then try to fartlight you with the whole "IF YOU TWINK ABOOTY IT. GAMES ARE MUCH CHEAPER NOW THEN BACK THIEN, SO IT MAKES SENSE TO GAMES TO COST 70DOLERS IS FAAAAINNNN"

      Chakan has an aesthetic to it. It has potential. Wish someone would make a hack of it. The controls need work, jumping and then difficulty needs to be adjusted big time holy hell.

    Fatal Rewind is hard but pretty unique. Euro flavor.
    Chakan is hard as frick and a lot of people like it. I never got into it. Unique art style.
    Urban Strike is okay, fun enough but nothing special. No real style to it
    Never cared about EC, seemed tryhard

        heres what to get from your list. id be thrilled to have CiB of these games

        >Earthworm Gym I & II

        erj2 mightnhave that crappy carboard box. i tend to skip these.. you may as well just get the loose cart. those carboard boxes suck and arent nealry as good as the plastic israeliteel boxes with color manual.
        Also for some mediocre games that I gotta want to snap I just go for a loose cart sometimes to save. I typically order stuff from ebay.

          I decided to get Urban Strike, since I've been looking for it since I was a boy. I asked the owner if he could hold Chakan and Ghouls n Ghosts for me so I can come in tomorrow and flip a coin.

        well since no one else is going to say it
        buy the ones that are expensive online
        resell them, use that money to get all the other game you actually wanted for free
        if you're good at the game you can get paid to play like all the other horrible eBay motherfrickers

          I don't want to do that. The opportunity is there, sure, but thats a dick move. I want to play these and enjoy them, not sell them back later. I buy maybe two retro games a year and I try to make them count.

          Eternal Champions looks neat. Love any halfway decent fighter from that era.

          It looks interesting, and it would be nice to have something in my collection other than Mortal Kombat.

        Shining Force, Aladdin, Alien 3, Ghouls n Ghosts and Sonic 2 are the best games there.

        Battletech is interesting too for cheap.

        The Punisher is the most valuable at hundreds of dollars and is an awful port.

          Surprisingly Battletech is one of the pricier ones they've got. Manual, Registration Card, even the Poster. I might call up the shop tomorrow morning and add that to the pile. I already have it, just loose.

    I used to know the name of that font face but I haven’t done graphic design in a while. It used to be used everywhere from electronics, advertising and album covers.
    Anyone remember what it’s called? It’s bugging me I can’t think of it.
