    A little story behind this or it wouldn't be interesting enough to post this here.

    This was an ebay grab, I paid $78 shipped which in itself is cheap to fair, if you were just getting the game alone. The listing had it not even shown just the title screen pictured and then it noted it came with the mini marquee and most often those value at $10. Two days ago I got in my mail box a priority mail envelope and I felt a box inside so I was like good, they took care of it. To my surprise I crack that wrapper open and NOT listed at all in the auction is everything you see below that isn't the game or the marquee. It came in the original factory box, that factory box has the 8man art on it AND a serial number that happens to match the serial sticker on the cartridge. It has the original protective bubble bag the cart comes with, also both the mini posters for the game, and the front and back softdip switch menu instructions too. This is a full KIT listed as a loose game with the marquee. I am not sure on value but usually those boxes add a bit especially on a match, maybe $300~ I have no idea, definitely better than $78. This is one of my favorites from the early era of my discovery of the Neo Geo arcade cabinet around 1990 at my local pizza place and that was in it. As of now short of a college infatuation with Samurai shodown III I've picked up all the old games I used to enjoy in the day so I'm thrilled.

    After being away from the forums for a while, I guess there's some catching up to do!

    Some of the most recent stuff I picked up:









    Much more will be coming in the future!

    Found this a day or two before Christmas. Goodwill, happened to be in a shopping cart they rolled out along with also a big PS1 setup too which I ignored. Sept 2000 unit, WK-3020...within that so called range to run burns or not (doubt I will or very little.) As you can see the whole original system setup is there (console, cables, power cable, controller.) Also a original VMU too and 2 sega ext cords for controllers, then a madkatz controller and 2 high frequency model memory cards. Total price: $6. It all works, even the drive did, had the worst football game for the system left in it which worked as a test before dumping it.

    Have not had one of these in a dozen years, very happy. Picked off a lot of games for it online since for a good discount, also found 2 locally just to have something to do with it along with a first party jump pack too.

    Dreamcast is so much fun. Such a high concentration of fun games, even lots of the cheap stuff is loads of fun!

    Dang, I wish I could find a working Dreamcast and gear for $6. At least a couple people found something this month - I thought the entire month would pass without anybody posting here again.

    Well I agree on both things. Lots of fun, and price wise I looked. A lot can be had in the $5-20 range, most of the games really and this is complete V.Good to Like New shape, a few others bump into the $25-35 range and barely anything noteworthy over $50 (original retail.) The exceptions being more or less only the vertical shooters and Capcom titles, and just most of them. SF3 Third Strike, Gunbird 2, and Capcom vs SNK are under the $50 limit, especially the latter. Thankfully I don't want any of that other than the sub $50s which is a fun coincidence. The one over moderately would be Power Stone 2 as I loved it and hated the first (on the demo disc.)

    I'm happy with it, mind blown so cheap. I've rarely seen a used one in the entire area I look for anything really, and the handful of times not complete, not in the best shape, and definitely not with extras. I picked up a low priced bundle of roughly a dozen games on Christmas day online I hope gets here by the weekend that'll round out some nice stuff to meddle with for awhile. I've been sitting on it the last few days fairly busy so I haven't used it since kind of waiting on the selection...but maybe I should fire up Deep Fighter and Crazy Taxi tonight.

    Crazy Taxi is a great one, Deep Fighter is a letdown. I bought that one right after it came out with high hopes, and found it to be fairly boring.
