A game collection do die (or kill) for...

So, remember that awesome collection i talked about somedays ago? For those of you that don't know anything about this, let me re-tell you the story.

I was wandering in the PTGamers forum (pardon me for the publicity, but it's the fucking best portuguese videogames site!) when i stumbled across a topic named "game collections". Curious as i am, i entered the topic just to find out one of the most impressive collections of saturn games i've ever seen, especially from a portuguese gamer!

I immediately asked for permission to post the picture here, and not only he said yes, he also took more photos for me to publish! What a guy...

Anyway, here they come, so be sure to clean your eyes, you'll want so see this as clearly as possible... (as always, click the picture to see it in full size)

Tcharan!


This is the first picture i saw, and according to him it's a little outdated, the following are more complete. Notice that, not only this guy as alot of good games, i also has at least 3 of the "great 5" (that's what i call the 5 most rare/expensive titles for the Saturn). If you watch carefully you'll see Guardian Heroes, Shining Force 3 and...Panzer Dragoon Saga! Oh yeah!

By the way, about that hallowed game, he said that he bought it a long time ago in a store that closed just a few days after for the ridiculous amount of 4.000 escudos (our old money, before the euro came), something like 20 euros. Yes, 20 euros for a game that easily sells for 100 or more nowadays. As the gnome would say, "you lucky bastard, you..."

This is basically the same picture, although here we can see Christmas NiGHTS, Virtua Fighter Remix (i didn't know that it was released in such a large box) and some other games that weren't in the previous picture.

Here we can see even more games, including Soviet Strike, another case where i had no idea it came in such a large box, Virtua Cop 2 and there's even room for some nintendo love, as we can see by the DS, GC and Wii games. (hey Father, looks like the Saturn and the Wii really make a good combination)

And here it is in all it's glory, one of the most sought after titles ever, Panzer Dragoon Saga.

Well, and that's it. Hope you liked as much as i did, i know this gave me the will to never stop collecting Saturn games.

As always, good bye and good games ;)

Wow! Stunning collection! There's quite a few titles I didn't even know existed! Alone In The Dark for Saturn for example. Jonah Lumi's Rugby and The Sega Photo CD Operating system... Wow! Amazing!

Another stunning post! BTW I couldn't get to your Portugese site the other day, can you put a link to it and we'll get it on the side bar...

There is also a Portugese comment on one of the posts, could you translate it and I'll attempt to reply!

Cheers! Keep up the good work Nebacha! Your doing an excellent job! The Saturn Junkyard has improved 100% since your arrival! :)

Jonah Lomu's Rugby is actually one of the most common games you can find in miau.pt (the biggest portuguese auction site, think of it as our ebay, it's where i buy most of my videogame related stuff), among other "common as muck" titles like virtua fighter, daytona, etc...

And by the way, there is a complete photo cd there with a base price of 7 euros. link: http://miau.pt/leiloes/leilao.jsp?offer_id=4068381

The link for PTGamers is quite simple: www.ptgamers.com

As for the portuguese comment, it's actually brazilian portuguese (oh god, how i hate that language... they basically picked our portuguese, raped it , ripped it apart and came up with that inferior copy...)

Anyway, now that i let that out, that post goes something like this: "Hi, i found your blog while searching on google, it's very interesting, nice post. When you can make sure you'll pass by my blog, it's about customized t-shirts, it shows how you can create a very cool customized t-shirt. Bye"

Yeah, he's just making publicity of his own blog...

Anyway, i'm glad that i've met the expectations and expect my opinion of x-men soon :)
