I have been getting lots of deals lately, especially (and strangly) in the wild. I though I would make a post that covers the last few weeks. Again, I didn’t pay much for any of these, and the money that I did pay I got mostly with trade credit.
Ys Seven collector’s edition (PSP) – I posted this find on twitter (follow me via @videogamesrad) the day I got it because It was such an insane deal. I paid a cool $9.95 for this complete collector’s edition of Ys Seven. I have wanted this for a while and was planning on picking it up before the value shot up, but my local second hand shop took care of that for me. I am really happy about this one.
The Death and Return of Superman (SNES) – Why this game doesn’t get more recognition is a mystery to me, as it is easily one of the best beat ’em ups of the 16 bit generation, outpacing any of the Final Fight games. The game follows the infamous Superman storyline from the early nineties about the death of Superman at the hands of Doomsday and the subsequent reign of the Supermen and the man of steel’s eventual return. I am not a Superman fan in the least, but the is still an awesome game.
Mega Man Legends 2 (PS1) – I got this in a trade I did with a guy over at NintendoAge. This thing is in pristine condition and I am happy to finally have a copy in my collection. I was a huge fan of the original Mega Man Legends game, but the huge price tag has always scared me off of the sequel. This is getting priority in my queue after I am done with Final Fantasy XIII-2, which is awesome by the way.
Parodius Da (Game Boy) – This Japanese import is a pea-soup portable version of the quirky Konami shooter that is impossible not to love. Every bit as entertaining as it’s Famicom and arcade counterparts, only smaller and thus, cuter. This game routinely goes for around $20 plus shipping on Ebay, and that’s complete on the box. A great pick up for any Game Boy or shooter enthusiast, and it plays no problem on non-Japanese Game Boys.
Final Fantasy IV (WonderSwan Color) – As far as I can tell, I am only missing one version of Final Fantasy IV now that I have this one; the Japanese PS1 release. Hell, I even have a Chinese pirate of Final Fantasy IV for the Famicom. Once I track down a reasonably priced version of the JP PS1 title I will commemorate it in some sort of a post, but until then… take a closer look at this version, if you’ve never had the pleasure:
