Just won Final Fantasy III on ebay having just beat Final Fantasy II. While FF2 is awesome, I hear FF3 is like the RPG to beat all RPGs. Can't wait 'til it shows up.

Votes from the community — do you guys think FF3 is better than FF2?

No.

just hit up undercover cops super famicom. woooo!

Sadly the market values that game much more highly than I do. I'd pay maybe $20-30 for its gameplay, but I know finding it at that price is an unrealistic expectation.
(I have seen bootleg sellers asking that, but buying a fake sounds worse to me than that other method. :P )

There is what seems to be a licensed emulator-based compilation for PC, but the quality does not seem that great. Oh well, guess I'll have to live with that unless I decide to pay big bucks.

Just won an auction on shopgoodwill.com for a Gamecube and 4 controllers. According to the post everything works fine and two of the controllers are Wavebirds. Got it all for $21.00.

The only SFC games seller I think that ships internationally at the moment is one called auc-games (I think there's a button to choose your country to filter the others). For others it may require using a proxy buying service (which means adding some commission fees). Quite some time ago I used one to buy Crisis Force for the Famicom. $13 loose on yahoo turned into about $55 after all fees (which was effectively paying the ebay price), but I recall that may have been because I used EMS or whatever the fastest priciest shipping was. Probably could have been in the area of $30-35 otherwise.

yeah dude, ive never had any problems importing games from other sites until that one. they sent me an email saying something like my card isnt working (yeah right). the told me to contact my bank, after that i ordered another game from japan the same day with no problems. in fact thats the first time ive ever had any problems ordering a game from a different country.

Just picked up a copy of Parasol Stars for the NES... Love the Bubble Bobble series and been after it for a long time! Can't wait to plug it into the NES and give it a go... I've been waiting to play it since I was a kid!

The Image isn't mine, it's from a google search.

I found it at a Mega Mall for $15.. figured why not, look like a decent collectors item at that price. One sold recently on eBay for $62.00.. I'll be holding on to it though. :)

Oh yeah won another auction on shopgoodwill.com. This time a working Black Sports Edition Dreamcast for $15. It comes complete along with a copy of some Sonic game and two controllers. Not sure if I want to hang on to this or resell it.

Lol, I'm actually getting a bit more discriminating with getting boxed ETs; if it's not true complete (or at a very good price at near-complete), I've been holding off. "True complete" is kind of hard to come by, since it seems the vast majority of "complete" boxed copies don't actually include the Atari Games Catalog and/or the 1-page insert ad for Raiders of the Lost Ark. Pretty much if the copy doesn't have at least the manual and "Getting ET home fast" insert, I pass on it.

Eventually. Now that Christmas has passed (and I generally don't like watching Christmas stuffs off-season), there's less of an urgency. Just a matter of time though. :)

Nice, I picked that up a few weeks back. Aside from just a few minutes playing to make sure it worked fine, I haven't played it yet, but definitely looking forward to some more Duke Togo action. :)

@RancidVomit86: Will do. I am kinda on the fence right now. I really like the look of a black Dreamcast over the white one but then again I know how much these can go for and it's just nuts. If anything I will keep it for a bit and make sure it runs good, I know it said working but I dont want to sell it to someone and then have it stop working after a week. But yeah if I decide to sell it I will keep you in mind.
