General / Moving to Australia, where do I start?
« on: November 07, 2017, 10:38:24 am »
So I'll be moving to Australia soon.  Specifically Sydney, and I have no clue where to start with gaming on the other side of the planet.  Are there any cool stores anyone knows about?  Is there a good collector's community?  Does retro have a strong base at all there?  Anyone familiar with anything related to this willing to grace me with some knowledge would be appreciated.

Modern Video Games / Looking for a fix!
« on: May 20, 2014, 06:31:35 pm »
So as some of you already know, I run a retro game store.  I have purchased about a dozen Xbox Ones by now, and I keep coming upon the same problem.  I won't buy a system that I have not thoroughly tested.  That being said, Installs are atrocious....  Many customers bring in their systems already formatted as well; making testing a long process....  I would like for the community's assistance in this area....  What are the fastest installing games for the Xbox One that I can use as a tester?  Which of these games can easily test all of the buttons on the controller?  I'd like to come up with a reasonably quick tester to have permanently set aside in my store for use....  Thanks for any incite guys~!

Marketplace / Final steps to moving to Australia sale!

Rezzing my old selling thread to get rid of my big things that take up too much space now that I'm ready to move.  I'll be adding more of the collector's items and large peripherals (Like a Nintendo 64 flight stick) as I dig them out of storage I parse out over the next week.  I generally just stick to Paypal for both seller and buyer safety.  I always cover shipping for free for any non-international US mainland shipping.  Feel Free to make offers if you want to get multiples or something.  I'm always willing to hear someone out!  Each item is listed with the prices I'm hoping for next to them.  Here's the link for my user feedback thread:,3606.0.html

Borderlands 2: Ultimate Loot Chest Limited Edition (Game itself is not for sale just the collector's items)  $75

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection - Claptrap-in-a-box Edition (Game itself is not for sale just the collector's items)  $150

Borderlands Diamond Plated Loot Chest Limited Edition (DLC Codes for guns have already been used)  $50

General / The Collection Achievements Thread gave me an idea....

Well I thought that I wouldn't get enough feedback from my post here:,650.360.html considering my post would get drowned in that huge thread....  So I'm here to ask people to choose my next 10 PS2 titles that will help me hit 400 PS2 games~!  I obviously don't want duplicates of what I already have....  I'll pick a combination of the most recommended and what simply catches my eye in 2 weeks....

Site Feedback / Import Ratings Systems....

This was brought up quite a while back, but I forget which thread, and it seems it was never implemented so....  I'll just leave this here:

and also this since I have some Korean games and will likely get more:

I'm not familiar with other regions, but I may familiarize myself with other Oceanic stuff soon enough....  I'll probably update this thread then....

General / What are your biggest surprises from this site?
« on: October 28, 2013, 07:08:57 am »
I realized two things tonight and it led me to ponder, what has surprised (both good and bad) everyone here?  I started randomly browsing some collections in my insomniac state and here are the realizations that caught me off guard tonight that led to this....

1.)  I do not consider ANY hardware, memorabilia, PC games, games that are not CIB, or digital content to be a part of my collection....  Apparently most other people do....  Now the CIB one, I'll admit, is a little over kill but I have been consciously avoiding adding any items to the site here that fall under those categories....

2.)  Kimimi has the greatest damn import collection around....  Seriously, check her out~!  She makes me jelly....  I have been following a few collections for a little bit in order to broaden my horizons, but I missed the one that the most up my alley~!  My wishlist is going to grow SOOOOO much now....

What kind of unexpected impacts have you guys experienced around here~?

Bought a significant amount from me and threw in extra to cover shipping even though I offered free shipping....

General / Revival....
« on: August 21, 2013, 02:04:09 am »
If you could revive or fix a game series to your own desires, what would they be~?  What changes would you make~?  I am going to list my top five here....  I would like others to do the same, because I always get excited thinking about what could be and like to get incite from others on what made the greats so great~!

Suikoden - Konami has treated this series like a red headed step child of late....  With laughable off shoots that don't even take place in the same world and titles that don't even cross the ocean at all, one of the greatest RPG series of all time has had abhorrent treatment in the states....  The worst past is that very little innovation is really needed....  The first few entries were (Blue) lightning in a bottle with their unique blend of mechanics and rich, deep story....  To be honest I would like a current gen home console entry where I would not recommend anything for them to better, but rather just not make any mistakes....

Destrega - An interesting experiment by Koei on the PS1; Destrega was fast paced 3D fighting game that felt more like glorified rock, paper, scissors at times....  With a high angled top down camera, the game plays reminiscent of Power Stone and DBZ....  Though unrefined, the game showed a lot of promise if you ignored atrocious voice acting and story....  It really shined in versus matches though....  This game would need some major overhaul this day and age, but I would quite literally squeal if I found out Koei had a Destrega pet project for the PS4....  I wouldn't be disappointed if all of the original story concepts were scrapped and re-envisioned from scratch, but this game could quite literally be confused for an alpha version of Power Stone or Tenkaichi and that is not a bad thing at all....

Tenchu - An oft over looked member of the stealth genre family, Tenchu was doing things VERY right straight from the get go....  The first few titles were incredibly well designed in gameplay mechanics, story, and execution....  Though A.I. was not revolutionary in the early days, the level design ramped up to combat predictability over the course of the games to prevent the same tactics on enemies further into the games....  The series fell apart once it hit current gen systems though, when the Xbox 360 game was simply a mess and the Wii one tried too hard to venture a different style....  The worst part of this series is the fact that it's best entries never even got state side releases....  On the PS1 there was a best levels compilation with 100 stages made by fans and voted onto the collection, and the first PSP title managed to gather all the greatest elements of each title and combine them into one....  I would like a future title in this series to start where Tenchu: Time of the Assassins left off and keep an eye on where the Shinobido series went to use as a guide for a next gen home console release....

Bushido Blade - There are many different types of fighting games, but how many of them involve 1 hit kills~?  Now how many of those use 1 hit kills as the core gameplay mechanic~?  Bushido Blade was a fantastic game that was a balance of spastic flurries of attacking and long uneasy moments of feints and backsteps....  The matches could last less than 4 seconds or for over 5 minutes....  This game knew exactly how to hold the mood and make a fight intense....  Sometimes there was no music at all....  All the audio you could hear would be feint footsteps in the dirt and steel being drawn from a sheath, and it was perfect....  The mechanics were very solid and would need little updating....  A sequel would require little other than a roster update, new story elements, and a graphical overhaul....  I could die a happy man in 1 strike....

Metroidvania - This one is kind of cheating....  Neither Metroid nor Castlevania are necessarily dead by any means, and their forays haven't necessarily been terrible either....  I know that I am not alone in wanting more Super Metroid and more Symphony of the Night though....  I don't need more Prime or more Lords of Shadow....  Other M was a joke and the Prime games (while good) do not satisfy that craving....  Konami has had much more success, but similarly their home console outings in recent generations do little to satisfy the old school style gameplay crave....  I was quite content with the GBA and DS titles, but Mirror of Fate has me frightened....  I have a sense of dread that the old ways are gone....  The funny thing is that I have no specific requests on improvement at all....  I feel that they are simply trying to make "different" kinds of games....  I believe if they set the older style gameplay as a goal, I would be happy with anything that was produced....

Off Topic / Pacific Rim changed my life~!
« on: August 09, 2013, 04:16:16 am »
Just got back from watching Pacific Rim....  I must say I am thoroughly impressed with how the film bucked some Hollywood staples and betrayed my expectations....  I am now invigorated and wish to pursue a pass time in movie going....  I want to know what everyone has been seeing lately and what they plan to see so I can brush up....

Hardware and Tech / Anyone know a good TV to put into an M82 display~?
« on: August 07, 2013, 01:35:55 am »
Got a nice M82 with the original Marquee at the store, but I'll be damned if I can't find a decent TV to fit the stupid thing....  I have one that is too small in there right now and it's getting annoying....  Any particular brand or model happen to fit those things better than others~?

Off Topic / Indie developers....
« on: August 06, 2013, 01:12:23 am »
Anyone frequenting this place have experience modding or developing themselves~?  I was working on a small project with a couple guys that fell apart almost as soon as it began recently....  I came up with a great idea for a title that we were all excited on, but the work quickly got less and less frequent until they dropped off....  So I'm looking for some feedback on peoples experiences with small indie teams....

Is there going to be anything related to badges along with the finishing touches of the update~?  I don't really notice them anymore so I want to know if they are being abandoned or if more are going to be added like a v2.0 badge or higher existing badge increments~?

Also, I picked up and added Terraria - Collector's Edition to the site today....  I was at an impasse though as to whether or not list it as PS3 or PSN....  It is a physical retail game, but inside the package there is a card to download the game on PSN....  My gut was to go PSN, but I will change it back if the consensus differs....
