Pick-up Time!

Alien soldier road rash golden axe warrior

Boy, am I excited about this batch of games I received a while back. I mean, Alien Soldier! You’re seeing that, right? Frickin’ Alien Soldier is now in my collection. And I got it for a bargain too, not the usual 100+ $ it usually goes for. One thing bothering me though is, I suspect it’s a fake. Booooooh! No really, the printing quality of the sleeve is setting off some serious alarm bells as some parts tend to show slight bleeding of the ink and the cartridge label is peeling off on top. But hey, I won it relatively cheap and it damn well looks much more presentable on my shelf than the obviously pirated copy I owned before. It came in a paper sleeve y’know.

Oh, and Road Rash *sigh* :). Who doesn’t know (and hopefully love) good old Road Rash? I used to own this for PC and me and my brother played it to death. It was the classic RR experience we knew from renting the first game on MegaDrive except now filled with ridiculous FMV which was actually rather entertaining in a very silly way and menus filled with great Alternative music like Therapy? and Soundgarden. Which I, by the way, was just nuts about in those days. Sadly I don’t own that copy anymore but upon seeing it featured on an episode of Game Sack my Road Rash-itch started, well, itching again so I bought it for the Saturn this time around. And it still is amazing stupid good fun.

Golden Axe Warrior I also got to know through Game Sack and a Zelda-clone in the Golden Axe universe just seemed too awesome to miss out on. So I boughtst it, I boughtst it real good. It’s an okay game, you’ll love this if you loved the first Zelda game.


Pick-up Time!


A few days ago I received a lot of MegaDrive games and one for the Master System that I won on eBay. There were 11 games in the lot but after some meticulous (not really though) testing I decided on keeping these four and selling the others.

‘Sonic 2’ and ‘World of Illusion’ I already owned but ‘Sonic 2’ I have on a very unsexy loose compilation cart (oh poo!) so a boxed copy definitely looks way better on the shelf. Same for ‘World of Illusion’ which I had as a loose cartridge. My shelf will look that much fancier now ^-^.
