Thats cool, i genuinly didnt mean this as a value thread. It was just strange how i couldnt really find the game mentioned much or listed anywhere. Like the feeling i may own something that not hordes of people do....even if its worth about as much as a pint. Mega CD was never my thing, so it just seemed easier to ask on here, i knew someone would know.
I'm a big fan of PAL Mega CD games - not so much for playing, but it's a generally nice set to collect for. The cases are my fave for any system, there are a couple of AAA titles, Shining Force CD, Final Fight CD, Sonic CD, Shining Force, Keio Flying Squadron, Lords of Thunder..... There is also a lot of FMV tat (all the games from Digital Pictures) like Supreme Warrior and Corpse Killer.

If you want to see the best Mega CD web-site on the web, check out The PAL Mega CD Library (google it)

You're missing the point

spence lists several games with the £999 price for a reason

It's very simple - he is ALWAYS at the top of the page when you select PRICE - HIGHEST FIRST when you do a search, and when people see a game that generally sells for a few quid with that price, people are going to wonder what other games he has listed with such retarded prices - so they step into his "shop" and that's exactly what he wanted in the first place, or they just search his other listings - so he has managed to get their attention, and he may get a sale on another game he is selling with a fair to moderate price

So, in that respect it is actually quite clever

Ah good old timsega...I have both him and spence blocked from buying my items. Spence bought a 32X lead off me for around £9 once and it took him forever and a year to pay for it :roll: . So I blocked him and did the same for timsega just for the hell of it.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I literally have nothing in that list, ah, shucks. Nearest i have to a valuable game in my Mega CD "stuff"* is Earthworm Jim i would guess.



*I say "stuff" because to call my 14 or so Mega cd games a "collection" would be laughable :lol:
