Here's one of my few remaining bits of my gaming collection as i sold a load a few years ago. This was bought for me years ago as a birthday present from a good friend who was a boss at Gamestation at the time. The box is a bit crap but the console was in great condition.

Yes. I know it's only 2 but still.

Peeeeeeeeeeeedz! I have put quite a few hours into Ocarina even though I've not progressed *that* far (a fair way, though; I have Epona and evil has overtaken Hyrule Field). I may share my Ocarina game collection in a future Weekender...

That looks to be in excellent shape, degoose. The GC really was a force in the Resi timeline! You've made the first console post in the Weekender :toot: .

Okay, so here's my modest Gameboy collection. It's a bit of a mish-mash, but nevermind.

Bonus! A two-sided poster I found in the bag.

I have the original AC adapter in storage somewhere, along with the (mint) boxes for MGS and Pokemon with all the inserts, etc and a few of the plastic game cases. The two Mario games came bundled with the Gameboy and so I don't have boxes for those, and Wario Blast I bought cart-only for £3 off someone a few years ago. Wish I'd kept the box for the original bundle, but I don't think I did. This is what it originally looked like:

Until next week! :toot:

Lotus lands with some GameBoy-inspired spring sunshine! I really like the visual delight of GameBoy gear and that bold, vibrant yellow just yells "fun!". The console appears to be in lovely condition. Great stuff, and there is a nice collection of game paks, too. Of course, MGS stands out as it is quite a collectible. But... you've got me thinking, dude - MGS is a GB Color game so it wouldn't work on that GameBoy, right? Maybe you have the Color console, too?

Thanks for lighting up the first Weekender with that classic GB gear, Lotus!

:toot: :lol: I love Jawa's running commentary...it's like it's some kind of talent or beauty contest (which I guess it is!) :)

I love the look of the original Gameboy too - totally retro. I also love the fact that Nintendo used to provide mini cases for the games...

I have the original Gameboy too, but in the original colour. Need to get some more games though as I only have Tetris right now.

Good spot jawa. Yes I have a GBA as well which I played MGS on. That's in a different case though with a different set of games. One for another week perhaps. :toot:

I think I might have shown some of this before in the Show & Tell thread. There's nothing really cool, or rare, and it's just the stuff I have that's easy to get to.

Some retro bootleg goodness. Does anyone remember going on Holiday and picking up these bootleg GameBoy collections? I have a few more, and I'm definitely going to try and dig them out. I think it's Chinese, judging by the text on the back, but a lot of these collections were the only way to pick up some Japanese stuff that never got released here, besides you know, actually importing them.

Image
Image

These ones are authentic. :shifty: Honest. I have way more GameBoy stuff, it's just buried deep in the loft, and I'm pretty sure there are spiders there.

Image

Some old school cartoon platformers. I have a load of Sonic games, but I have no idea where they are.

Image

Loved my fighting games and side scrolling beat 'em ups. Spent a huge amount of hours on Global Gladiators and Mega Bomberman.

Image
Image

I loved my Dreamcast. I loved the cases, and the box art. These are just a few of my favourites.

Image

I have a few more GameCube games, but they're generally rubbish, and well buried in the loft because they're rubbish. Gamecube was the time when I was first old enough to get a job, and was pretty much able to buy what I wanted (most of the time). I'm ashamed of my Player's Choice Metroid Prime though. I'm pretty sure I have 3 but I can't find it. Unless that came out for the Wii, in which case it'd be a completely different place. I'm so jealous of ITSMILNER's edition of Resident Evil 4 and Four Swords Adventures and Twilight Princess. Why did I buy mine on Wii. :( New misleading console hype.

Image
Image

Generally just what I could easily get my hands on, and generally things I recall enjoying.

Crumbs! BAKA is on a mission to explode this first Weekender with a magnificent videogaming menagerie of retro goodness!

BAKA wrote:...Spent a huge amount of hours on Global Gladiators and Mega Bomberman...

You've posted a lot of cool stuff, BAK, and these two are interesting. Usually one would expect a McDonalds gameplay tie-in to be terrible but, by most accounts, Global Gladiators was a cool game! Sticking with the Mega Drive, Mega Bomberman was a highly-regarded entry in the series. I believe it's extremely similar to the PC Engine's Bomberman '94... which recently appeared on the Virtual Console for the Wii U.

BAKA wrote:... I'm ashamed of my Player's Choice Metroid Prime though...

Oh, I wouldn't worry too much about that, BAKA. Some game collectors do indeed turn up their noses at "budget" re-releases, but personally I still think they're fun to have. The silver colour scheme of the GC Players Choice range looks pretty cool, too.

Finally... Two Crude Dudes! Man, I really want to get that. I love the over-the-top styling and, well, the name itself :-). It's a title that I've looked at a few times but never actually picked up. I'll look out for that in the future.

Thanks for rockin' up with such an eclectic set, dude!

I love the box-art on those Mega Drive games. Are they all side scrolling beat-em-ups?

I wish i had more retro stuff than what I have. I have very little in terms of games up until the Cube.

Most of them are just regular beat 'em ups. Two Crude Dudes and Splaterhouse 2 are side-scrolling, and I genuinely can't remember ExMutants. I think it's side scrolling, perhaps not technically a beat 'em up.

Can't get the sodding image to appear using imgur on my phone. Tried both the app and the website, no luck :x

Will have to post later tonight, so set your alarms!

That is a great Gamecube collection - but there are 3 essentials missing :toot:

Wave Race Blue Storm
Super Monkey Ball
Sonic Mega Collection

Get those, and you have every GC game you need!
