Never heard of any of them - that's the great thing about this forum - new stuff always turning up. Though I think I'll wait until I find them for 50p each at the next carboot! :lol:
Hmm, I wish you luck with that - I don't think any of them were released outside Japan so the chances of them showing up on a boot sale are slim. That said, I did pick up a couple of boxed Jap MD games from a boot sale last year which I passed on to Filecore of these forums...

The SEGA MegaDrive. The penultimate 16bit Console.

Been collecting Mega Drive stuff, for nearly 10 years now. Not on any regular basis. Just picking up when I can afford it. As I've been more into the hardware than the games with my collection, that's not to say I've no games. Got to be boxed with all the internal packaging, leads + power supply's and still working. All boxes must be in tiptop condition as well, not new but close l. I will post some pics during the week once I've hunted them out of the dark cupboard where they usually reside. ( stay in a one bedroom flat with no room to have them on display. )

Boxed Console Stuff got.
1) MegaDrive Original with Sonic 1 pack in game.
2) MegaDrive2
3) Sega CD 2
4) 32X

Still wanting.
1) Sega CD 1
2) Mega CD
3) Nomad
then might start on Jap version's of all the above.

I've got Wukong, its decent, if not spectacular. Not worth paying the current ebay prices for when they do occasionally come up for sale.

The game is still available to buy on their website so you don't have to get it from ebay --

Don't have it myself, might get it later on.

Only just seen this and I'd really love to join in, got over 100 titles, and weird wireless controllers, joysticks and other stuff coming out of my ears for that beautiful black block of 16bit slap funk delights. My fav machine of all time :D

I did get bought the Blaze 'megadrive' as a present when it came out. It's not great, but works a bit. Was a big disappointment - especially on the region free front :x

found an old Megagames 2 whilst clearing up a cupboard - must have put it in there when I moved in - Golden Axe Streets of Rage and Revenge of Shinobi. A good bit of fun. (ponders: was this the cart I got free when I bought my original MD? Really can't remember...)

Megadrive is definitely my preferred collection.

I have about 300 games, mostly boxed, mainly european but some US and Japanese.
I've got most of the machines; european, US, Japanese, both models, mega cd 1 and 2, 32x, wondermega... I used to have far too many MDs once apon a time because it was hard to pass up a machine when I found on in the wild, but turns out I don't need 4 or 5 of the same model of MD. I have a 16 meg disk system for the MD, as well as the action replay carts, including the one for the mega CD.

Sadly, I don't see much MD stuff out and about these days.... I miss the time where I'd have a bunch of new carts every week.

I'd love slapfight, tetris and snow bros (particularly snow bros). But it's no fun just buying one off ebay. I'd rather find one out in the wild.

I agree with the above - buying from eBay is a joyless experience. Finding a game almost at random adds a bit of fun to the hobby
