Quoting: furaxhornyxWell, I really wanted that one
Also, I am still keeping an eye on this one https://megacatstudios.com/collections/16-bit/products/tanglewood , released in... 2018
That's fair enough! Do you still have a working megadrive to use them on or just for collection purposes?

Quoting: Arcadius-8606Thrift stores in NYC still have a lot of physical games for sale. I still buy physical games from places like Indiebox and Limited Run Games when they are cheap.
Nice, typically here physical games for consoles tend to be either in the supermarket (limited selection) or online.

Game shops as they used to be barely exist anymore, at least in my area.

Quoting: damarrinI did stop by a local used game shop yesterday. It's filled to the brim with dross that no one wants, like old versions of fifa of cartoon tie-ins. Anything even remotely worthwhile (like the God of War collection on the Vita) is very expensive and even then they had just a couple of things like that.

I guess the only chance to snag something interesting at a reasonable price is when someone doesn't know what they're selling, like a general junk market or a garage sale.
This has been my finding as well with used-stuff as well. That's why when I was much younger I was buying used PSP's from people that were either bricked or had some other damage like a busted screen, fixing/unbricking them and selling them.

I had to stop doing that though, because I ended up keeping a lot of the games that came with said consoles or keeping "rare" ones for myself. That's how I got my original Japanese PSP 1000 came to me bricked ready to be fixed and sold... and now it's my favourite and for keeps in working order

An excellent choice! Tanglewood is a fab game.

I think it's fair to say that it's now similar in a lot of places in the UK - the ultimate outcome of technologically-inept people allowing one major store to buy their only competitor, because they deemed the (to say the least) very limited selections carried by supermarkets to represent enough choice in the marketplace.

I mean, sure, it was great that people could pick up a cartoon-licensed game plus the latest microtransaction-heavy "AAA" sports title at Asda or Tesco, but that didn't justify losing a specialist chain.

I still have the one I got when I was a kid. I use an OSSC to connect it to my 32" monitor, in 1080p
I had to buy some new gamepads though, because the rubber domes in the original time cracked with time, but I could only find smaller version, which not as comfortable as the original ones.

I don't know yet, but there is a certain something in owning a megadrive game released in 2018
The thing is that the cartridge version is a bit expensive (which I can understand), so I am waiting a bit

Sad but true!

Nice! In my case, the console just stays packed away and I use other methods for playing those game
