    I can't believe i've neglected this thread for so long since my last posting! I used to post on the old N-Gage Arena boards though until they closed down to make way for the new Arena boards which require you to be a 2nd generation N-Gager and have an Arena password etc.

    I can't believe the things we used to talk about in this thread when it started! Wow, nearly four years later and we're still here talking about collecting for the N-Gage! Amazing!

    I'm currently missing just six titles:
    • Asphalt: Urban GT II
    • Civilization
    • Mile High Pinball
    • NCAA Football 2004 (Unreleased in the UK?)
    • Rifts: Promise Of Power
    • Warhammer 40,000: Glory In Death


    I would ultimately like to have the entire UK set sealed, which would mean I would need to replace six more:
    • Ashen
    • Fifa 2004
    • Pandemonium
    • Puyo Pop
    • Tomb Raider
    • Virtua Tennis


    I have also rediscovered my Flo Boarding cart, plus my Gold Master Review Kit of System Rush, so that's a bonus!

    Here are a few pics of my collection (Circa September 2007):


    Just the sealed copies...


    The entire collection (Minus Flo Boarding)


    EDIT: I recently sold four of the unsealed duplicates (For a pittance), but still have sealed duplicates of Glimmerati and Elder Scrolls Shadowkey if anyone is interested in a trade?

    Nice collection.

    I don't keep the games sealed - I just want to play the games (almost all my games came in sealed form - I unseal the games imediatly)

    Where did u get the Atari I and II ?

    How glad I am that I finished my sealed collection of N-Gage games long ago. Some were very hard to find, let alone sealed.

    mine were 99% sealed, and I opened them all (no point in sealed games).

    btw Allack.co.uk still has a big collection of n-gage games for sale

    I generally agree, but not in the case of N-Gage. The games are so cheap that it doesn't make much difference whether you buy them used or sealed, so why not buy them sealed, especially if you're a collector? And for playing, I have a Not-for-Sale MMC for almost every game.

    that is true actually, it's just in the past USA (and Europe) collectors threw everything away, boxes, instructions, etc for VCS, NES, SNES.
    and now they are like....oh no i want this SNES game sealed, and I'm gonna pay $1000 for it....WHAT???? Cracks me up everytime

    Also, the whole N-Gage is available on torrent, burn it on CD, and bingo, keep your N-Gage collection sealed

    It's been so long I can't remember, but the majority of my games have come from eBay sellers, back when they were a little more common. Of course, specific games like these weren't as common, but as nobody was colleccting them at the time, it didn't matter as they were as cheap as any other! Lol.

    A shame that i'm still chasing those last few elusive titles, one which I believe wasn't released in the UK (NCAA Football) and the others are pretty much the last handful of games released which could only be ordered online.

    Allack.co.uk allegedly have both of these games, but there's no way of telling whether or not they are actually in stock...

    Exactly, and it's the same for DS games too!


    I previously held an order at Allack for five of these games I needed for six months, but the games I ordered never showed up back in stock, so I asked for a refund in the end. I see they have Mile High Pinball, Civilization, Asphalt Urban GT II, Warhammer 40,000, and Rifts advertised with 'Availability: Usually dispatched within 2 to 3 days', but there's no way to tell how accurate this information is, and whether they actually do have it in stock - Bearing in mind that this is a website that still has Virtua Cop, Alien Front, and Taito Memories listed as 'Not yet released' on their system available for pre-order! Lol

    I don't mind paying their prices for these last few games provided they have what I want - Has anyone actually ordered any of these titles recently? Can anyone confirm that they do actually have stock of these items? I've just eMailed them to ask, so i'll post the reply if and when I receive one

    Received an eMail from Allack, which basically stated that the only N-Gage games they had left were the early ones like Sonic etc...

    It would be nice if they could update their website to reflect this information

    God, I want High Seize so bad I can taste it. Can't wait to get a nice copy in...scan the artwork at a super high resolution and finally play the damn game + snap a lot of screenshots.

    What's a good SD MMC to pick up for the N-Gage? I've been wanting to play around with loading stuff onto just a normal SD MMC so that I can have more room for snapping screenshots (instead of just a very small handful per session), but the ones I own (and the micro SD -> normal SD adapters) are all too large to fit in my QD

    There seems to be a serious lack of n-gage screenshots out there and it might be fun filling up the galleries at places like GiantBomb and such with fresh/original shots to these overlooked games.

    On that topic, is it possible to record video at all on stock units or is special hardware required?

    Just out of curiosity, are there any emulator's out there for the PC which emulate the N-Gage? Would such a thing be difficult to create? Has anyone ever tried (Ie, are there any which are work in progress)?

    It would be nice if someone were to ccome up with such an emulator so that it were easy to record video's and take screenshots of the games in action

    woo, won an auction for High Seize. Can't wait to get it in.

    Hopefully I can find an MMC that I can use before then so that I can take a shit load of screenshots.

    I always found Puyo Pop to be quite slow more like all those other crappy Java games. Completely not what I expected from an N-Gage title. Sonic N on the other hand is great, and a wise choice! One of the best games on the system, and should be on every owner's list

    Yeah that's my gripe with that game which its slowdown affects the gameplay bigtime...No wonder its not selling well...

    Sonic was a great game,How about Super Monkey Ball on the N-Gage??
