Subject: RE: are these magical chase claims true?


 i think i have been away from the bay too long.  living in japan, i 
don't really use ebay anymore but since when have games like godzilla 
fetched over $100?!  that's crazy.  might & magic III went for over 
$400?!  that is insanity!  i'd love to know the print runs of all SCDs 
in North America.  i thought that Camp California would be pretty low 
as that was hard to find back in the day and it was almost never 
carried. 
certainly Dynastic Hero, Beyond Shadowgate have to be low.  Dungeon 
Explorer II was initially low but i remember that an extra copies were 
later printed by permission from hudson.  what are the working designs 
print runs and current values?  exile II couldn't have been so common a 
game. 
as an aside, today i bought the PC Genjin 3 hu card (bonk, III).  i 
wonder if the CD version of that was ever released in japan?  i seem to 
remember hearing that it was exclusive to the US and, maybe even to 
just TZD?  which is harder to come by the US CD, US hucard,  the jp hu 
card?

i don't think tti had anything to do with those tags.  instead, i think 
those were put on there by the stores that chose to hang the games on 
pegs as opposed to just displaying them on a shelf.  i remember WAY 
back when i worked at toys r us we used to put tags on some items 
instead of putting them on a shelf.

Subject: help with titles & tokyo prices


hey List,
    i went shopping today and i saw some rather interesting titles for 
the PC ENgine that i've never seen before. any help / information about 
them would be greatly appreciated. 
    1. Crazy Hospital-  wow, the price on this was pretty high at about 
$90.  what's it about? i've never even heard of it before. 
    2. Renny Blaster- yikes, this game is going for about $180.  is it 
any good?  what should i know about it.   
    3. ???- this game is by hudson soft. it's got kabuki on the cover 
and the screenshots make it look like bomberman meets tengai makyou.  
surely, this must ring a bell with someone. 
    4. sylphia- any opinions on this game?

   perhaps you would be interested to know about some prices of pc 
engine games here in japan: 
magical chase- complete is going for $140
dead of the brain parts 1 & 2 is about $150 (that's a big increase from 
two months ago!) strider- $85
dracula x- has gone up again to $120
fausette amour is about $100
bonk iii (pc genjin) hu card- $25
macross 2036- $35
macross eternal love song- $30

      cheers and thanks in advance for any help,
          george

Your typical "Interactive Comic" with service shots.  Probably not
worth $90, unless you are *really* into that sort of thing... gameplay
is minimal.

Renny Blaster tried to be the "next" Dracula X.  It succeeded in some
ways, and failed in others.  Basically think dark platformer.  Very
detailed graphics and decent response, but minimal replay value once
you have made your way through the game.  I felt slightly ripped off
when I bought it new for $65 back in the day...

@> and the screenshots make it look like bomberman meets tengai makyou.

Sounds like "Deden No Den" (HCD4064) -- it is what you think it is.
And other than being a promotional item, I know nothing else about it
(why it was released, etc).  It is not altogether rare, or at least 
was not...10 years ago.

@>     4. sylphia- any opinions on this game?
Excellent shooter, and highly underrated.  Has pretty much the same
gameplay as Spriggan (collect capsules for different weapons).  Certainly
has a darker atmosphere to it than Spriggan though.  And is a lot harder.
If you can get it for a decent price, it is, in my opinion, well worth it.

I dunno about all of these prices, but if someone has a dynastic hero or 
magical chase that they want to trade for a Might and Magic III or 
Godzilla, I'd be more than willing.

If that's the game, I have it.  Think I got it for around $40 on eBay last
year.  A neat gimmick - I bought it because I like the Far East of Eden ACD.
(At least I think those are the same characters. ?)  Other than the
characters though, it's kind of boring.  I'd much rather play Nightwolve's
Motteke Tamago.  :)
