I own Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ. I picked up for cheap a while back. Honestly, I thought that it was boring, and I was considering selling it. Turns out, it's selling from $80-$100 now, which is much more than I paid for. If you like Ikari Warriors, and games in that style, maybe you'll enjoy it, but it did nothing for me. I thought that it was repetitive and slow.


Wow. That game at launch was less than $20, and local gameshops were selling their overabundant supply for less than half that amount shortly thereafter.

I mean, it's a nifty little game and all, but it's nothing special, nor is it overtly rare at all.

Guess the collector's brigade has moved to the DS.

Wizard of Oz: Beyond the Yellow Brick Road

Thats a neat DS game that's on my buy list, its looks real unique.

It's been on my list for awhile, but then its used price started trending upward on eBay to the point where I decided I could live without it. Last week I visited one of the few mom & pop gaming stores in the town I just moved to, and they had it complete and in great condition for $9.95 so I snatched it up. Usually, game stores are s*** for prices from what I've experienced (I'm all about eBay), but this time I actually had to make a purchase!

One of the most obscure things I've bought is a controller for psone. It is the spinner from the game of life, and I believe also works with some Japanese gambling games. Unfortunately the controller does not work with the American version of the game of life. Not rare as far as I know, but pretty strange.

I had a Japanese copy of Cool Boarders burn for the Dreamcast, as far as I know it wasn't released in the US (not as Cool Boarders at least).

It is called Cool Boarders in the U.S., unless you're not taking about the PS1 snowboarding series.

^ He stated he was talking about the Dreamcast game, known as "Cool Boarders Burrrn" in Japan but repackaged as Rippin' Riders in the U.S. This is because Sony owned the rights to the Cool Boarders name in the U.S.

The game is also known as Snow Surfers in Europe.

Oh, O.K. I thought he was saying he had a burned (i.e. pirated) copy of Cool Boarders for Dreamcast. I had never heard of the game he was referring to.

I don't think I've ever played Coolboarders, but I've played 2xtreme and 1080 Snowboarding. But I prefer Thrasher Skateboarding unfortunately for its realism to inspire us to skate, Skate or Die for its 180s and above(no flip tricks though like heelflips or 360 flips though) and jousting in a halfpipe, and maybe THPS. Those were some fun times.

I just got one of my most obscure pieces of hardware - a Tron-themed Wii Remote numbered to just 20,000 units. I'm a huge Tron fan and one of my four Wii Remotes just stopped working a few weeks ago so this was the perfect time to get something I had my eye on for a while. The front side has textured rubber grips and bright blue glowing lines that you can switch on and off with a button underneath the battery cover. Not sure how fast they drain batteries, but I have rechargable batteries anyway so it doesn't really matter to me. It also doesn't have MotionPlus built in, but luckily my last remote that died was just a normal remote with a detachable MotionPlus so I can just use that as needed.

It's a bit scuffed up on the bottom side but I use one of those clear rubber covers anyway so it's no problem. Overall I'm very happy with it. Only cost $30+shipping.
