Whoo, own one of the games on the list.

They're so horribly horribly wrong about Suikoden II being available digitally. They put it out in Japan, but we only ever go the first one on the PSN here.

Missing from the list, the one game I have played: Stadium Events on the Power Pad.

Ironically, my church youth group had it because the original owner thought it was lame... and they were right.

I have Darius Alpha, Suikoden II, and Panzer Dragoon Saga. Also have Stadium Events on the Power Pad with the Power Pad which is covered in duct tape to get the damn thing to stay down on the floor. Missing from the list - virtually every game for Atari Jaguar.

the money is in the banana stand: I have Darius Alpha, Suikoden II, and Panzer Dragoon Saga. Also have Stadium Events on the Power Pad with the Power Pad which is covered in duct tape to get the damn thing to stay down on the floor. Missing from the list - virtually every game for Atari Jaguar.


From that link:

Prior to being released by Nintendo as the Power Pad, Bandai test marketed their version of the peripheral in the North Central United States. Their version, known as 'Family Fun Fitness' was released alongside the one game compatible with the device, Stadium Events. Shortly after release, Nintendo of America purchased the North American rights to 'Family Fun Fitness' and decided to market it themselves. Stadium Events was also renamed and repackaged under the title World Class Track Meet. Despite the change, the two games remain virtually identical to one another, aside from the title screen and the Bandai brand name appearing in game. As a result of Nintendo's acquisition of the rights, all Family Fun Fitness branded units and copies of 'Stadium Events' games were pulled from store shelves immediately. This makes it, without a doubt, the hardest to find licensed game collectible for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Note: the PAL version of this game is not nearly as rare as the NTSC version. The rarity also makes the cartridge and package a particularly tempting target for forgery. Make sure you know what you may be buying, as well as what you may be trying to sell. With the recent news explosion surrounding this game, there are plenty of fraudsters about.


So, only the NTSC version of the Bandai version of the game is valuable.  I'll bet you guys have/played non-vauable versions of it.

I actually have one, but it's far from mint sadly.

Panzer Dragoon has been on my wishlist for quite some time now
 
2014-03-11 06:29:58 PM  
I liked Suidoken II and Panzer Dragoon, couldn't care less about the others. I still have Suidoken II (emulator, not physical).

No, but I've got sealed copies of Mega Man X2/3, several limited time repro cartridges, and five very good copiers.
