The GHZ Collectathon
Posted 09 March 2006 - 11:03 PM
But. Butbutbut. There's a certain type of collecting that I can get behind. It's this - identifying a series of games that you love and trying to grab hold of as much associated stuff as you can. I don't think there's any doubt that Jake's OutRun collection looks pretty fucking mint and I'm sure that, even though he can't play half of it (and probably wouldn't want to, given how shit a lot of the home versions were) it only serves to increase his appreciation for and enjoyment of the games that he can.
It's also a decent idea because it doesn't demand a huge investment of cash. You just have to be a little bit dedicated and a little bit lucky.
So what I was thinking was, why don't we each settle on one series that we really get a kick out of and see how much of the shit that goes with it we can get our hands on? Jake's made a start with OutRun, but there's plenty more cack for him to find there. Me, I've been thinking of trying to get hold of as many different versions of Parodius as I can - not just because it's a series of games that I really like, but also because every single version has something unique about it (afaik, anyway).
Anybody else up for some of this? Or is it the shittiest idea evah?

It's a great idea tbh, can't think off hand what I might centre one around. Will need some thought.

Im not a mad collector as you are saying for say everything on one console, although I do look out for certain games\series that if the oppertunity comes up to buy it...its mine. The only over the top collecting thing I have caught myself almost getting caught up in was getting every single Japanese DC Capcom fighting game released...not to much of a hard task, and tbh, shouldnt be the costly. Thats not that bad is it?... :'(
Still got quite a few left though, although I would of had most of them had I had been more clear in a pm to someone about the remaining games that all happened to be in one "For Sale" thread. God I was so gutted...
Anyway...ill get some pics of the mini collectathon up soon. But Randy...POST THEM PARODIUS PICS NOW YOU CHUFFING GEEK!
Whys this been moved into classic gaming? Put it back in General tbh. :[

Got some lovely Parodius stuff recently without having to pay through the nose for it. Minty fresh copies of the GB and PCE versions, and also of the SNES version of Jikkyou Osyaberi. Well chuffed with the GB one, in particular - it's like the thing's been sealed away in an airtight container since the day of release (and, as far as I can tell, it's not a Ninfendo bootleg). Was umming and ahhing over MSX and X68000 versions a month or so back, but figured that was going too far given that I've not got the bloody machines. Did get the Saturn Konami Antiques Colelction, though, which has the MSX version on, so WIN. And I've a feeling that the X68000 version doesn't have any exlusive stuff in it anyhoo - dunno for sure, can't get X68000 emulators to work on my PC and the machine's really poorly documented on the web, so it's my one weak link.
Was also tempted to expand this to the Gradius games, but that would clearly make me a complete fucking loon.
Oh, and btw - expecting photos of hauls from those participating

I do have the PC-9801 version of Puyo Puyo. I am never going to play it but the extras in the box and the cheapness ($20) made it a worthwhile purchase.
Gradius? Now that would be an interesting one to collect for, given the number of conersions and machines it is on. Space Harrier would be another fun one to collect...

US Extreme 2 is one of the best imo, better than Str!ke (mostly as it has my my my and spin spin sugar (although Stri!ke might have spin spin sugar) Extreme(US) is utter pap though.
