Looks like the Evercade is making waves in Europe. Never seen one in the States.

39. Altered Beast (GEN)
40. Aladdin (GEN)
41. Gauntlet IV (GEN)
42. Pirates! Gold (GEN)
43. Resident Evil (SAT)

Here are my pick-ups from August! I'm not sure how I didn't have a copy of Altered Beast as a Genesis fan, but usually when I'd run into a copy something would be missing or destroyed. But this was one of the first games I played on the Genesis, at my cousin's house. Always enjoyed the dark and creepy vibe of the game. Rise from your grave! Lol. Aladdin was also a game I put off for a long time, but after enjoying some of the other Disney platformers on the Gen, I was interested in picking it up. I was hoping to find both games for July's "Alms for the Poor" TR theme, but just missed out on getting them in time.

I have to thank Ziggy for getting this Gauntlet IV cartridge to work. I bought it from a seller online who claimed it was tested, but the cart ended up having a dead PCB, thanks to the cheaper parts Tengen used for their carts. I heard of this situation, but figured it wouldn't be the case here, since the seller claimed it was tested. Well, Ziggy to the rescue! He was able to solder the original game ROM onto a new PCB. Love the arcade action and soundtrack for this game. Can't wait to play it co-op with my friend. I might also consider getting a multi-tap for this one. Many thanks to Ziggy for his work on this.

Pirates! Gold is a game that I wasn't aware of until a few years ago, I had never played a pirate sim type of game, and was interested that something like this would be on the Genesis. I fired up the ROM on an emulator one night and got sucked in and was playing for a few hours. After that initial experience, I wanted to pick it up if I came across a good CIB copy. I finally came across one, and it even had the map, which is a nice bonus.

As I've mentioned a few times, Resident Evil was a huge game for me growing up -- I initially experienced it on the PS1. Over the past few years I've grown curious about the Saturn and Dreamcast releases in the RE series. I passed up a good condition copy of the RE for the Saturn at a local game store a few years ago and since then had kinda regretted it, so when the opportunity came up again, I snagged it. Looking forward to experiencing this classic again on a different console.

Nice finds!

That old checkerboard design on Altered Beast is much more appealing than those red strips that replaced it.

Also, that's awesome you finally came across Phantasy Star III. I recall you mentioned you had a tough time finding it. I'm having that experience with Phantasy Star II. Lol.


Yeah, I came across a local shop that two copies available so I had to pick it up. With Too Many Games coming up soon maybe you can find a copy of PSII there.

Higher than Muv-Luv Alternative? This is blasphemy, and the heretics must burn for their slander.

Thanks, Bone! I mostly agree, the red strip isn't my favorite. The checkerboard pattern is better, but I like the covers that don't contain either the best. Lol. For example, Streets of Rage 2 or Steel Empire, there's just more space for the cover art and the branding isn't overwhelming. Just having that grey/silver Genesis logo somewhere on the front is sufficient IMO.

Too Many Games looks like it's going to have great offerings, I've seen some photos from vendors attending, and it seems like a lot of game stores are bringing out their best stuff. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to attend but I'm hoping to go to an expo in Connecticut in November, close to where a friend lives.

Totally agree on Altered Beast and Aladdin, both great games, some of the best on the system, IMO. Gauntlet is a lot of fun too, I can't wait to play it co-op with a friend. Pirates is also a fun one, it's pretty cool to see an open world adventure game like that on the Genesis, it's unique for the console.

I got Mega Man 7. I think it might be a repro cart, though.
