Available until Dec 12.

I guess most of you are probably already familiar with their work, but I found it interesting nonetheless.

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!

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 there any kind of disclaimer on it?

It seems to be booting. At least that's what the Beep sticker on the box said.

Makes you wonder if anyone at the Falcom offices even have one. Who'd have thought... a fucking cassette tape. Magnetic medium though.. it won't work forever. Will it hold it's value after? Glad I have no desire for such a thing. :)
