I have 244 N64 carts. I have pretty much all the "must-haves" for the system, though, so if I couldn't pick up any more, I would be satisfied. There's only two games you have that I don't (Quake and BattleTanx).

You own 244 N64 games and are somehow missing 2 of the best games on the system. Wtf?
>>
>>8139438
Is Battletanx actually good? I actually bought a copy of it today and didn't really enjoy it much in the 45 minutes or so that I played. Maybe I should give it another shot.

Battletanx is a fucking classic. Beat the campaign on hard. I dare you. And this shit was especially a fun multiplayer game. The second game Global Assault is even better.

Even if it was a good port (far from it), Quake 64 doesn't even have the Nine Inch Nails soundtrack. It's a novelty item at best.
>>
>>8139803
Lacking the soundtrack is definitely a positive .it's like doom 64. Atmospheric and cool

Nice. Ive got a baby's first neogeo collection of about 24 games mixed of aes and mvs and pick em up here and there at cons or when my local retro shop gets em.

Where did you usually get them from? Ebay, another site, yahoo auctions, NG collector groups or were you just fortunate enough to get em when they were new?

You also buying any of those new official NG conversions that are coming out in europe or the NG.Dev stuff?
>>
>>8145414
Can you you mix aes and mvs on console/cabinet?
>>
>>8145416
Aes can play mvs via adapter, as far as i know aes wont work on mvs boards.

Games are identical with a handful of minor aes version changes on a few games.
>>
>>8145426
Interested in the AES/MVS differences.
>>
>>8145429
I think its just some minor changes like home console type settings, like set lives or something. Idk, gigachad aes collector on here probably knows which ones have the differences. I think its mostly the later releases. I wanna say the metal slugs may be one of em, not sure if the combat school was added in the aes releases first or the Neogeo CD versions.
>>
>>8145414
Mix of eBay and NG collector groups. eBay is a pretty safe bet for MVS, since it’s easier to spot fakes and no legit reason for sellers not to provide board pics. For AES you can still get legit copies on eBay for most things but need more knowledge of what to look for. Big ticket stuff I’ll only get from other collectors. Don’t care about the new Visco repros coming out, but have Xenocrisis coming and on year 4 or 5 of waiting for AES Kraut Busters. Not buying shit from NG Dev ever again until it’s proven they can deliver in a reasonable time frame.

what's the cheapest way to get into neo geo hardware nowadays if you're willing to tinker? These prices are ...
>>
>>8145191
>>8141883
Does neo geo have much to offer for someone who doesn't like fighting games or multiplayer games because I'm alone
>>
>>8145445
Buy an MV1C, make a CMVS out of it or use with a super gun, and get a flash cart

For non-tinkerers, just get an AES with unibios and a flash cart. Still pricy but for <$1000 you can play everything on OG hardware. Get a Neo Save Masta for memory

Neo emulation is also generally really good so no shame just doing that either
>>
>>8145457
3rd party and early snk releases are more of the non fighter stuff.
>>
>>8145445
Just emulate... Neo geo is ridiculous to collect for especially now and emulation for all 16 bit consoles is perfect
>>
>>8145463
a neo geo cd + sd loader isn't bad either
>>
>>8145473
Bullshit. MVS is still the last bastion of affordable Neo Geo, but it won't stay like that for long.

>>8145445
Get a Neo Geo 1 slot from Aliexpress, 161 in 1 and look into superguns. You should be able to get a setup for under 150 if you shop around. If you're serious I'd suggest getting a 1 slot sooner than later, the prices are starting rise and the surplus from china is starting to dry up.
If you want to collect real carts, you should be able to get most of the good titles for 50-100 dollars while most of the KOFs can be found for 50 or less.

Yeah just looking at money in my bank account is a better use of my finite time on this planet than spending money on my hobbies. Every person who has enough money in their bank account to indulge said hobbies holds back and just stares at it until they die instead. Because once you die you're going to be judged by how much of your money you were able to hold onto, like a high score in an arcade game.

Why do people that browse /vr/ hate honest collections so much? It's like if you are not apart of the emu army, you are the enemy. Sorry zoomies, i know the current market it beyond fucked, but that doesn't mean us boomers pay these prices. I've been collecting longer than most of you have been alive. And i played/play all my games.

There is zero reason to not emulate these 16 bit consoles. That's like owning a NES collection and that emulation has been figured out since the 90s
>>
>>8146708
They're not expensive and I'd rather play on original hardware. I don't care that I can emulate them or how good the emulation is. I have never really been into PC gaming at all besides running emulators and now that flash carts exist those are useless to me too.
>>
>>8146717
It's literally unnoticeable and there is no difference. What the fuck doe snot being into pc gaming even mean
>>
>>8146720
There are some differences not in how the game runs but how I experience running it. I spend all fucking day in front of this computer. The only thing it inspires nostalgia for is the work I just did on it a couple of hours ago. Pulling out a console, plugging it into my TV, and turning it on without worrying about messenger notifications or my OS giving me some kind of notification or whatever the fuck else is a nice experience. Brings back simpler times when I had no internet access and didn't have to hear from faggots like you.

Yeah, pretty much. Home office turned my cave into a workplace. It's much harder to relax in front of the computer for me. And I often feel like I'm wasting a lot of time just sitting there and shitposting instead of playing games like I used to.
It's a psychological problem you know, and I imagine it's been similar for many people for some time now.

Wanted to get into PS1 collecting but the prices are sky high in UK. So I thought fuck it I'll just buy in bulk from Japan and learn the language. Like how hard can it be?

Pic related 105 games cost 3200 yen or £22 (Shipping was way more though). Got a chipped PS1 for £20 on ebay so I'm all set. It's true about the nips looking after their games most of the discs are mint. Some of the case inserts are a bit faded though probably from the heat and humidity - poor bastards. How did I do?

Should have posted this in the recent purchase thread instead. But nice.

Based and redpilled. I turned to collecting Japanese versions too. Fuck PAL PS1 games, they're pretty much all shit conversions. Meanwhile NTSC-U prices are incredibly inflated.
If you know Japanese (or are at least willing to learn) this is the best choice. The games are cheap and mostly kept in great condition. But I buy only what I want to play. Buying in bulk pretty much means you're getting 90% trash like those pachinko games and whatnot.
I only wish I could just go to Japan to get some games in person (maybe there's a good online store too?). Ebay sucks most of the time, because all of the offers are made for gaijins who don't know the real prices and they're inflated there too. Games that go for 1000 JPY max are sold for over 20 dollars if they're in good condition.

I said I was going to learn Japanese. It will be like embarking on a journey of wonder and discovery. I was big into PS1 in its heyday so it'll be good to experience something new from the era. Quite a few of the games are playable with little to no Japanese anyway I don't collect for market value rather it's about what the games mean to me.

Either way you look at it I just pulled a massive middle finger to the resellers over here.

i always wondered, while obviously the big cities in Japland are all english friendly, most of their game stores are picked clean of the good shit and/or their prices are boosted up a bit cause of foreigners, but what if you were to go out into the sticks to some of the small towns? Surely some of those not touched by outsiders and frequented by locals must still have some small independent gaming/collectibles/thrift shops where the prices and stock must be more appealing still, even if they wouldnt have the mass quantities of the big city coming it and of course you would need to be much more familiar with ACTUAL Japan rather then the tourist cities and how to really navigate the language.

This post should be stickied for all emu faggots that feel the need to come here and bitch about what people do with their time and money.

The whole point of many personal connections going way back, like WAAAY back, were because some weirdo had a personal interest in something niche that only really appealed to them or a small community of other weirdos. Talking collecting shit like the remains of animals with abnormalities or grotesque torture instruments and other kinds of shit most people would not have a normal interest in.

If someone is collecting for some outdated system you can emulate or for some games that have no perceived "value" on a platform from the 70s, these people are well aware what they are spending their money on, you dont gotta be a faggot and constantly bring it up to them. Its their personal weird money sink cause they like it and it probably means something to them, so kindly neck yourself and leave them to it.
>>
Japanese gamers must think of us all as total losers

>>8147859
unless you are playing text heavy games, you can probably learn enough that it would still be much cheaper to buy jap versions for the very small amount of text you actually need to know to play them. like how much you feel reading is really important for something like MegaMan?
>>
>>8147964
japs import games too, just its not as well known over here. a lot of times jap collectors are just as autistic if not more so

text heavy games are usually what I enjoy. I enjoy weird stuff that's barely a game a lot actually. I struggle to find examples and I struggle even more because I insist on hardware.

Well, if you go to Super Potato in Akihabara then don't be surprised that the prices are high, it's THE retro games store after all. There are a lot of so called tourist traps.
But from my experience, even if you go to Bookoffs and similar stores in big cities you can find some pretty good games for quite cheap. I went to a Bookoff in the middle of Kyoto and found a whole bin of mecha games for the PS1 and PS2, 100 yen each. And good stuff at that, ACE, SRW, etc. Probably someone's collection.
The thing is, it's really hard to tell what is rare in Japan unless you know the market better. You can find games that are rare and fetch ridiculous prices in the West to be really abundant and sold for a few hundred yen in nearly perfect condition.
As you said, it's probably better to check some less popular shops too. You don't have to go all the way out into the mountains or whatever, 1 hour by train from the center of Tokyo should be enough to get away from the tourist spots.
Man, how I want to go back.
>>
>>8148009
i think the platform id be most interested to find games for over there are PC games, like ACTUAL pc games from the multimedia CD boom of the 90s.
>>
>>8148024
That's one area I didn't look at too much. PC games mean VNs and eroge 99% of the time in Japan. And there was a lot of that of course, but as for "actual" games, how you call them, I don't remember seeing too many.
What stood out to me though, when I went to Yodobashi Camera there was a PC software department and it was full of Office, antivirus software, Windows, etc. And among that were boxes of FFXIV and DQX. The video games department was all console games, PC nowhere to be seen.
>>
>>8148053
yeah thats kinda what i was implying when i brought it up. Theres a bunch of really interesting 90s/early 2000s PC games from Japan/China/Korea that little is even known of which really fires my synapses as a 90s pc game collector. Like I did manage to get a PC port of Gunstar Heroes from Japan that very few sites seem to know exists and it even advertises more pc ports like Rent-A-Hero and Alien Soldier. Ive seen some ebay listings out of my price range for essentially share-ware/free-ware Mac game collections, but they look to be made by Japanese indie devs, so im sure thats chock-full of obscure goodness. Then you have shit like those stupid expensive releases like Garage and Eastern Mind. Fuck, i remember watching some youtube zoomer do a vid about trying to track down the Japanese version of Lego Island and it being an incredibly difficult task to actually do so.

I'm spergy about my boxes. I want to play my games and keep them in something, but I don't want to damage the boxes by constant opening and closing so I just keep the boxes and manuals in plastic, and then I have universal game cases for actual shelf use. Maybe it's silly but that's how I like it.

No such thing as hidden gems. There are good games, bad games, and games for children.

i already have most of my collection, but fuck me, the last 10/15 things i want skyrocketed in price. i kinda dont even want to buy them anymore they're so bullshit. FFIII, super metroid, the snes zelda, r-type III, battle garegga, and a few ps2 games. why the fuck is gta vice city stories 100 dollars? that was in every single gamestop ever for years and now its all of a sudden rare? did people bury that shit in landfills or something?

Since a lot of older boxes don't look perfect lined up next to each other because of years of natural shelf-wear, the box protectors help them look very uniform/consistent. And damage to the boxes are less noticeable with the protectors on it too, as well as holding the structure together if the box is crushed at all. I'd personally recommend it.

You looking on Amazon or something? It's hovering around $54 on eBay.
To answer the question on why it's so rare, I genuinely have never seen it garage sailing in all the years i've continued to do it. Maybe like 20 copies of GTAIII, San Andreas, and Vice City each, very few for Liberty City Stories, and literally none for Vice City Stories.
>>
>>8160694
nah on ebay, about 3 months ago there were only about ten listings and the buy-it-now prices were 75 dollars and up.
>>
>>8160694
Probably because LCS & VCS were PSP to PS2 ports that never got PC releases so everyone forgot about them. Shame because they're good fun.

I can't even remember how much I paid for my copy second hand, but it certainly wasn't that much.

....do you think im lying about seeing it listed for 100 dollars or something? i fucking got it the first time you showed pics....also, i refuse to buy a GTA for 50 dollars, even that is beyond absurd. i only buy like-new conditions anyway. anything less is usually a lie and its scratched to shit.

Just because it's listed for $100 doesn't mean it sells for $100. I can find you a ton of Mario 64s and other extremely common games that are listed for $100 too. I think you're just being dramatic in this case because I'm pretty sure that game is actually uncommon + desirable. And this is coming from someone who wouldn't pay for games in this market either.

Bought it all as a lot off ebay about 5 years ago.
Paid $400, now some of those games are worth $100+ each.
Came with a gamecube and the gameboy player.
>>
I always get the itch to start a new collection but then I remember how useless it felt and how long it took to sell them all on ebay and I bury that idea deep inside my head. the whole "hunting" aspect was a really nice hobby but thats because most of the top games used to be 10-20$ cib 15-20 years ago on ebay. nowadays I would literally pay 100-200$ for the same games in a worse condition.

I feel really bad for the people wanting to start their collection nowadays.
>>
>>8162283
I sold a good chunk of my collection between 2018-2020 literally just before the covid spike because i needed the money and was sick of collecting, just had a room filled with games i didn't play anymore and was going through a bit of an transitionary phase in my life where i wanted to go more minimal. I don't regret the decision but it does suck that i now have to pay out the ass for things i was hoping i'd be able to re-buy at a later date for maybe cheaper prices if not the same price.
The most painful things i sold were things like Breath Of Fire IV, Tales Of Destiny, Silent Hill, and my Vita collection. seriously though wtf when did everyone all of a sudden become collectors.
>>
>>8162283
I'm glad I've never had any real attraction to the idea of "collecting". I had a bunch of games as a kid, and one day while I was at university my mom decided to sell them all off (she asked first).

Now, if I'd kept them, I probably could've made some decent money off them today, so that stings a little. Lots of retards out there willing to pay top dollar for Nintendo shit now. I even had Virtua Racing and Thunder Force IV for the Mega Drive.

But in terms of actually having them around? I've never missed them. I've got all the games I had as a kid, and a lot more, stored on microSD cards the size of a fingernail. I don't have to rifle through shelves, only to find out I misplaced the disc in another case because I was lazy.

These days all I have lying around are a copy of Kato and Ken that came with my Famicom I used once for testing, A copy of Sonic the Hedgehog for the same reason, and Seaman 2 as well as Police 9/11 because they both came with PS2 peripherals I wanted (A seaman compatible mic, and a police 9/11 compatible camera, respectively). Maybe if I went through my old CD stacks I might find a copy of Warioware for the Wii between some old demo discs. But none of these games are even used, I don't see the point when I can just use flashcarts and ODEs.

The one thing I miss from boxed games is looking through the manual, I guess. It'd be nice to have some online resource for those given it helps with game progression sometimes, but the ones out there seem pretty lacking.

i kinda explained in another thread
i do experimental guitar/synth music with a very loud drummer

since im the only other musician in the project i need to be very loud

im never going to reveal my power level or shill my projects that i have going on

but if i gave enough hints /mu/ shitposters would figure out maybe not WHO i am, but definitely WHERE i am

my friends are quite talented i prefer to fly under the radar & garner (only deserved) attention by my own artistic merits

tiny indie label i started is doing well though & im proud to say we have vinyl records +eshop

I feel the same as him and it is a little bit sad. But changing your mindset helps make it less sad. Modern life demands that all your leisure time be spent in front of either a phone screen or a computer screen. To be infinitely distracted by endless choices. Browsing movies on Netflix for hours or looking at a full romset unable to choose something to play for more than a few minutes. I feel far more satisfied when I can get away from all this crap and focus on something. I do use emulators on my Android TV box instead of my PC but I put one game on there at a time and set aside time to play. By sitting down with a controller in my hand and looking at my TV I'm able to focus on what I want to do. I won't be tempted to answer messages from anybody. I won't be tempted to come here and be an asshole to somebody because they have a different opinion than me. I can enjoy playing a game and have fun. That's also why I appreciate original hardware. Having a shitload of devices that can play anything makes me appreciate purpose built machines more. The simplicity of it makes me happy.
