Wow, you all are right. Thanks for going the extra mile with the pictures, it is much appreciated! I would have thought the white would have a yellowish hue, and that's what threw me off. Darn sunfade

Quote from: wildfruit on June 29, 2016, 04:59:08 PMWell for the CD games if you must be legit & own the original, buy the JP games and burn the English version. Is Loom really worth it? You can get that for any number of systems in English. Dungeon explorer HuCard should be cheap enough in English. The others I don't really pay attention to prices of but a turbo ever drive should solve all your problems.Some of these I just put in the list for the sake of completion. For instance I'm not going to buy Magical Dinosaur Tour, and Loom unless I find it cheap and some of the others on the list I already own (Ys, CF2, Dungeon Explorer, etc.) I do also plan on getting an ever drive, so any hucards I won't buy unless I find a really good deal (though I wish I bought Neutopia back when.) I only put price in as a factor unless the PC Engine version is super expensive and the Turbo isn't, I am more interested in what games the Japanese version is not playable to the English speaker, so importing wouldn't be an option on the cd games and the everdrive rom would better served being the Turbo version. Hope that clears things up on my original post.

Quote from: PCEngineHell on November 20, 2012, 08:21:57 PMThats a really nice collection you have there, but we have a new club now. After much deliberation we decided to raise the bar. Unless you have a region modded system with either RGB or S-video out, you're not part of the club.Haha, well one step at a time I suppose.
Quote from: ccovell on November 20, 2012, 08:14:39 PMA great collection! Unfortunately, you won't be able to play Art of Fighting until you get an Arcade Card Duo...Yea, an Arcade Card Duo will be one of my next purchases, I really wanna try on that version of Art of Fighting, plus all the other games that support it.
One other odd thing I noticed, Eternal City's cover art has it spelled "ETRNAL CITY".
Quote from: Ji-L87 on November 10, 2012, 04:30:41 AMI've been thinking of buying a bunch of games from the Suruagaya store, prices are great. How's the condition? Are the games complete or loose?Quote from: bartre on November 09, 2012, 10:11:30 PMyeah, it works similarly to ebay, stores are set up, and just sell through rakuten.It's also similar to Amazon, in the same sense.
at least that's my understanding.
Rakuten itself doesn't sell you stuff - they just keep track on your points and account information. There are a number of different stores which focus on different things like, clothing, music & movies, gaming & anime/manga and so on so forth.
You CAN find things for very cheap, but keep in mind that these deals might very well get nullified by the shipping costs. I've only done business with a store called Suruagaya and while they ship international, they use EMS and you won't know the final sum (including shipping) until they've calculated everything out and sent you a mail asking for your purchase confirmation.
So, using the EMS price chart and keeping en eye on how much a number of CDs/jewelcases and so on weighs will help in understanding what the shipping costs will be like. Of course, once you start adding books & posters etc it becomes rather impossible. Packaging also weighs a bit and you don't know how much bubblewrap they will use (everything has been very well packaged though). I've taken notes a few times when doing business with them and depending on what I bought the packaging weighed from 400g - 1000g. The last one was a shipment of 8 LDs so they packaged that shit pretty tight.
From my notes (which might not be totally correct) 1 CD in it's case (music or game) is about 120-130g while 1 LD can range from 360g to 515g depending on what exactly is in there. Insert sheets, bonus material and so on.
Still, I've found some really cool thing there. Game systems tend to be expensive but some games, books, posters, music and laserdiscs can be had for a steal.
Quote from: CGQuarterly on April 14, 2011, 04:41:31 PMYou can get Duo-R's region modded, RGB modded, and with new lasers for $270 shipped from Japan, so It shouldn't be a problem to find one in stock condition for $200 shipped.I'm about to the point of doing that honestly. No one on any forums seems to have any TG-16s for sale, and there are hardly any bargins on ebay.
