Currently at 233, not including imports or repros. I've picked up 33 titles this year so far, though hopefully #234 is in the mail. Since the average prices have gone up, and shipping fees increase the cost of titles I purchase, I try not to go nuts. But I have a lot left to go.

And the last 3 I picked up? A.S.P.: Air Strike Patrol, Secret of the Stars, and The Great Waldo Search.

Ninja Warriors did come out on the Sega CD, but this SNES game is kind of like a sequel, more like Ninja Warriors 2.

Haven't watched the episode yet, but weren't these gems supposed to be SNES exclusives? Pirates of Dark Water is on the Genesis.

I never said exclusives.... because not everybody has every console. They just need to be fun and relatively hidden (or not 1st party) on SNES.

All right. I could have sworn one of the caveats in the first video was that they were exclusives, but I guess I was mistaken.

It should also be noted that the two different Dark Water games are also different genres. The SNES game is a hack and slash like Golden Axe, while the Genesis game is a platformer with RPG elements.

It also came out on PCE.

Secret of Mana supports 3 players with the tap. The Capcom Fighter Power Stick is a wonderful little known item for the NES and SNES.

I lucked into a boxed one when I went looking a few years ago. Other people need to know about it though. :)
