Rare games needed for Collector's Corner

Post by Stuart@retrogamer » Fri Oct 22, 2010 10:56 am

I'm back on the search for more obscure games for gamesTM's Collector's Corner and was wondering if anybody has anything rare/obscure they wish to see appear?

I've compiled a list of the games we’ve already featured below, just to give you some of idea of the obscurity status we're looking for, and to be considered the game will need to be boxed and complete, but doesn't have to be in pristine condition.

Off hand, games I would like to see covered at some point include Rendering Ranger R2 (SNES), Batman & Robin (Mega CD), Kolibri (32X), Tarzan: Lord Of The Jungle (GG), and Smurfs 2 (SMS). But if you have something equally as rare that you'd like to see appear then do please get in touch. Cheers guys.

I can't remember if Half Life was ever released for the Dreamcast
Was it pulled from the shelves just as it hit them?
Or am I getting my facts mixed up?
If not, was Illbreed obsure enough on the Dreamcast?

I have 2 brand new unopened AES games. 3 Count Bout and Alpha Mission II.

Other than that I have boxed copies of Chrono Trigger (US), Kat's Run (JAP), Legend of Zelda (JAP), Link to the Past (JAP).

I also have 2 Tiger Barcodes Games still with the original packaging. Super Street Fighter 2 and Power Rangers.

For shmup greatness (and rareness) contact either Mootown or gmintyfresh. I can humbly supply some semi-rare Saturn games: Radiant Silvergun, Guardian Heroes (PAL), Dungeons & Dragons Collection, etc.

DC Half Life was reviewed by C+VG, DC UK etc, but never released.Copies were out on net at the time-That`s where i picked up mine. Not sure how rare it is though. Picked up Illbleed via same route.

I've got Rendering Ranger, but as I've already been featured twice, not sure you'd want me again :P

I can't believe you have a boxed copy of Kats run!! I've been after this game for years, I used to own a copy on my super wildcard back in the 90s. Would you consider selling it?

On a side note, I know I featured in last months collectors corner but I also have the following
Wonder Project J2, a Sufami Turbo SD Gundam double pack, Blood omen, sin and punishment (N64), The vionlinist of Hamlin, Cotton 100 complete with CD (SFC), Mario vs Wario, Stone protectors, Lethal enforcers big box (snes and MD), Riviera (GBA), Demi kids dark version and zelda ages/seasons double pack.

I've still got plenty of obscure titles, though some are regular titles for obscure formats, rather than the other way round as many titles in this thread are.

Eg - Nexzr Special for PC Engine, Genocide for X68000, Star Fighters for MSX Laser Disc, Plenty of NEC PC-98 games.

Good to see Space Manbow mentioned in OP, quality game!

Ohhh no sir sorry, I can't part with that game. It's one of my favorite imports next to Alcahest. I actually featured Kat's Run, along with Astro Go Go, in a gaming tournament in 2009 that I held in West Palm Beach Florida. It was great seeing how quickly people adapted to the different yet similar style.

I have a boxed Smurfs 2 on the GameGear. I had to trade a boxed Sega Game Pack 4 in 1 for it.

I also have a boxed Kolibri, but it's the more common US version, and a loose copy of Tarzan on GameGear.
