If you win a game that is not usable in your region, we will make some sort of arrangement to get you something else if you want.

News / VGC-X: Something big is coming!
« on: January 10, 2021, 05:19:11 pm »
Today, January 10 2021, marks the 10th anniversary of!  For those of you who were around for our 5th year, you might remember the contest that we had to celebrate. For our 10th, I wanted to go bigger and better than before, with bigger prizes and more of them. Unfortunately, I ran into problems getting everything here on time, so I’ll need to push it back until I get everything I need to proceed.  This time around, instead of a contest, I’ll be holding a live stream drawing with some special guests to help me celebrate.  I don’t want to give away too many details, but we’ll have discussions, some big news, and a lot of fun. All vgc forum members who have an account in good standing with at least 25 posts as of this post are eligible, even staff members. The only people not eligible are Matt, Jason, and myself.  I’m not going to reveal the prizes that we have lined up, but there is some good stuff in there. I’ll be making a separate thread in a bit for folks to sign up.

Modern Video Games / Sell me on Panzer Dragoon

I see that the remake is available on the Switch and Limited Run is going to make a physical release. This is a game that I have heard a lot of talk about, but I’ve never played it.  Why is it so popular?  Why do you like/dislike it?

General / Canadian help needed!

Is there anyone here in Canada that would be willing to buy those awesome Link’s Awakening Slurpee cups from 7-11 and sell them to me?

General / Any shops that specialize in European retro games?
« on: January 27, 2017, 06:36:43 pm »
Does such a place exist?  I'm specifically hoping to find some of the European CD-i software. Most of the stuff on eBay is US releases.

Marketplace / FS: CD-i controller adapters
« on: December 09, 2016, 05:16:32 pm »
I'm going to be starting on another batch of these adapters soon. This adapter lets you use a SNES controller, and vastly improves the experience of playing CD-i games. They are $45.00 shipped anywhere in the USA. I should have them ready to go in mid January.

Marketplace / Gamecube wanted
« on: November 13, 2016, 01:34:40 pm »
I'm looking for a cheap gamecube for one of my kids for Christmas. Just the console, power cord, and a controller. Doesn't matter which color.  Shoot me a pm if you have one for sale.
