    I've got a bunch of extra Gold Master Review Kit games and Not For Sale games if anyone is interested in them.

    @ WindowsKiller: What "Media Preview" game do you have?




    EDIT: Since I've had a couple PMs already, here is a list of what I have available:

    Gold Masters - all complete with game, disc, and case. Case and game have matching numbered stickers. The disc inside is still shrinkwrapped on some of them.

    Asphalt 2
    One
    Catan
    PtG Ikusa Islands
    Rifts
    X-Men Legends II

    Kiosk NFS cards

    Tom Clancy Ghost Recon Jungle Storm
    SSX Out of Bounds
    FIFA 2004
    FIFA 2005 (green stripe label)
    Red Faction
    Spider Man 3
    Ashen
    Pathway to Glory
    Rayman 3

    Yellow stripe Review cards
    Splinter Cell Chaos Theory

    I don't know if I've asked this question before, but with 30+ pages I'm not back tracking to double check.

    But what RPGs are available for the N-Gage?

    I have:
    Elder Scrolls, The: Shadowkey
    Pocket Kingdom: Own the World
    Requiem of Hell
    Rifts: Promise of Power
    Xanadu Next
    X-Men Legends II

    And am missing Roots.

    What else is there?

It needs a ton of work; new pages need to be created, others need to be split off (many games are grouped with dissimilar titles with the same name, such as Chaos Theory, Xanadu Next, Colin McRae, etc), tons of screenshots need to be uploaded still, gallery management is a bit wonky, we can't upload videos (but we CAN use YouTube to hold the nice stuff off of those media kits), and the forum system is set up similar to GameFAQs where every game and system has its own mini-forum.

    Upside: Anyone can edit, it's easy to make changes and we can upload high quality images and scans. Supports fancy game guides (with permissions set for only only the people you choose to edit) and linking to other games based on similar features (such as games in the same franchise, games that play similarly, other games that take place in the same time period or place, etc)
    Downside: No versioning system (I know, a wiki without a versioning system? Wtf?) and you need to accumulate 1,000 points from submissions prior to being able to make "live edits". Gallery management is incredibly non-intuitive.
    That site is complete gash! We need something more streamlined, similar to the original N-Gage website, but more in-depth, and more importantly - Independant. I'm sure it can't be too hard to design a suitable website from the ground. I know some people & can make some calls (That is, if there's enough interest in the project to warrant the effort)

    I also throw onto the table 'N-Gaged' as a potential website name, just to get us started

    I've just browsed Google to try and find some other indie N-Gage websites, but there really is very little out there relating to it, and there's not really any real leading authorities on the subject matter. The new N-Gage site is also no good, as Nokia just want to forget the original hardware and focus on the new Arena service for N-series devices, so there's plenty of potential there for such a specialist fan site

    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Comes with a pressed mini-cd and a very early beta of the game.

    Though I'm most proud of the protos I have of SonicN and Pandemonium. Both from a time when the N-Gage hardware wasn't even final.


    I'm interested in the Gold Masters of PtG Ikusa Islands, Rifts, Mile High Pinball, and X-Men Legends II. The ones I have are either incomplete or in rather bad condition. If they are still available, let me know.

    is there a difference in 'not for sale' and 'not for re-sale' mmcs?

    does Flo Boarding also have a 'not for sale' or 'promo' mmc? (mind you it never was for sale in the first place, only a pack-in. nevertheless it would be interesting to know)

    <3

    I'm going to polish up the Call of Duty entry either tonight or in the morning and then I'll start cracking on the Ashen entry. Going to upload shots for Ikusa Islands soon, too.

    Oh, and I'll enter the credits for the games that I have where possible. Looks like I'll have to create a new company page for OmegaSoft at the very least.

    Put on hold, unfortunately, due to real-life, job-switching, etc. Early 2010 maybe.

    Stay calm - I did watched your collection when the photo album was available.

    I only use picasaweb - It's the only one I trust

    I removed my pictures from room of doom because some of them was deleted .. or something and I didn't like it.
