The last time I amassed a large amount of games was this time of the month back in May.
First I’ll start off with a lot of 11 Super Nintendo games I’d purchased off of eBay. All are game only, as you can see, and work great. Four of these games are repeats and they’d be Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time, Street Fighter II, Donkey Kong Country, and Fatal Fury Special. TMNT IV is the worst looking of the bunch because of the bad label, but as mentioned it still works just fine. You probably don’t see Fatal Fury Special pictured and you’d be correct. The reason being is that I’ve already sold it to Usagi704. He was quite impressed with the port.
Out of the seven remaining games five of them I wasn’t really looking to get, but at least I didn’t already have them. Everybody will notice the quality take a dive when seeing Shaq Fu, but it’ll improve a whole lot once I get to the final two games. Street Racer is roughly a Super Mario Kart clone with a slightly different style of driving to it. NBA Live ’98, MechWarrior 3050, and Super Battleship are all pretty much what you’re probably thinking they are.
Now these two games where totally worth searching out this lot of games to begin with. I bought the whole thing solely for Ninja Warriors. This fantastic beat-’em-up had eluded me for far too long. If you’re not familiar with this game, then please take about ten minutes of your time to get educated by the HVGN. Oh and it didn’t hurt at all to have Final Fantasy II come along for the ride. :P
Another game I bought in a separate auction was the Sega CD game The Masked Rider: Kamen Rider ZO. Back when I was crazy about the Kamen Rider series as a whole (I’ve toned my excitement for it down since then), I looked up to see what video games had been released for the various shows. One cool brawler for the SNES was based on the 1971 original show. I gave it a whirl on an emulator and it was pretty fun.
This also lead to my discovery of the Sega CD game in question. It was odd, however, that the game was release in the States. The reason being that the movie, Kamen Rider ZO, for which it’s based on wasn’t released here.
The game itself is simply one of those FMV games where you just press a button or direction on the d-pad when prompted to like in Dragon’s Lair, Road Avenger, or Time Gal.
Finally based on input from the shoot-’em-up encyclopedia himself, Usagi704, I decided to get Final Soldier off of the Virtual Console.
Thanks for reading. Have a good day!
