Re: Documentary on the Japanese Game Preservation Society

Interesting documentary. Thanks for providing the link! I’m wondering if the Galactic War 1 tape by Falcom that Joseph presents at the end of the documentary and that he spent 15 years looking for is the same that Beep in Akihabara is selling for 450,000 Yen at the moment? Does it even work? Is the...

Re: Documentary on the Japanese Game Preservation Society

Cheers! Looks like Shou's home.

Pretty cool stuff -- especially the castte games. I know they are (or recently were) sought after by a lot of groups. Surely they have very little life left. Are the DECO cassettes all preserved? Looks like at least one showed up.

And that Sigma joystick!

Re: Japanese developed games not physically released in Japan

AFAIK, there is a Japanese language version (called Mach Go Go even) that was loke-tested. Japanese text, and all, and a certain member here has at least scene it (if not own it).

Re: My Tumblr Site

You got to love 1P. And who could forget 2P? There's more Lost Worlds art I need to scan. Eventually I'll put all this stuff on Mediafire too, in higher quality. Where did it originate from? I was always on the lookout for offbeat stuff like that but don't recall an LW pieces sticking out. I tried ...

Has anybody watched Shin Godzilla (2016) yet? Not a fan of the series/genre, but this trailer gave me goosebumps, and the movie seems to have gotten good reviews generally. http://youtu.be/3WkxVHyzivg Went to the theater to see it... mother fucker was sold out. No joke. Haven't made it back, but it...

Definitely out on the Rez soundtrack. It was good, but only for a game. The VR release of the game is the only thing that has me thinking, "having a VR set might be cool". I knew Casino Versus Japan had something coming out soon but didn't know it was this month. Cheers. I will get it, eve...

Such as the "Vinyl Revival" perhaps? I follow game music and some have been released in that format. Perhaps. However, records never really stopped either. I learned how to DJ on vinyl so have always had some, even though I stopped while in hawaii. I guess the principal of actually holdin...

Tycho's latest LP Epoch has just been released. Have not listened to it yet. Mixed feelings on the last one, but the remix album of it was fantastic. I've been following Tycho for ages... stumbled upon them on eMusic. I definitely do think he/they got somewhat big, but for the most part, I think the...

Re: Dork out: Game Goals...

Galaxy 2 was the last game I really, really got into and completed 100%. Shit, maybe the only game ever. Can't remember another where I got every single thing... always had too much of a back log. That being said, I'm thinking of giving Galaxy 1 a go as I skipped it. Hoping it's as fun as 2.

Re: Are we old yet? Or: Do you still collect?

Speaking of Mega Drive, I regret not grabbing a complete in box Bare Knuckle 2 for 800 yen some years ago. My logic: I'll wait for a cheaper one. That was pretty stupid of me. At 800 yen, perhaps, but honestly games are like any other collectible. The floor could easily bottom out at some points. I...

Re: Are we old yet? Or: Do you still collect?

I still buy games, but very few, and only new releases. I sell off most after I finish them. All the old stuff, I either no longer care or already played it and sold it off long ago. One exception: I still have all my Cave games on my X360, but I play them only a few times a year now, for the occas...

Are we old yet? Or: Do you still collect?

I just did my annual Fall trip to Japan. As I had some first timers to Japan in tow, I thought it necessary to hit Akihabara. I was pretty prepared for the most part. I know the retro (32-bit and before) was pretty ridiculous price wise. I only went to Super Potato, which I know isn't a great gauge....
