For the record, these are also only available in Japanese officially. But full English fan translations exist:

Haven't played it myself to confirm, sadly, and it is rather expensive.

That's the version of Phantasy Star that I have--not counting the Sega Ages compilation on the Saturn. I first played through the game on it, a number of years ago, as well. (Before that I had only dabbled in emulated versions of it.) I can confirm, it is merely the Master System ROM--in this case, actually Sega Mark III ROM--on a Genesis cartridge. So, unfortunately, that also means no FM soundtrack. Great packaging, though.

I love how Sega had some mega-porting (and, later, emulation) going on with their games. Genesis classics had the SMS ports. Lots of arcade stuff ended up on home computers (C64 and so on). Bunches and bunches of compilations -- the Sega Ages line is absolutely insane!

Contrast this to Nintendo. Wanna play arcade Donkey Kong? Too bad kid, go download MAME.

The month is starting to draw to a close. I have been tallying every bit of participation in this thread for an end list. If you have played or beaten anything for ELN, but didn't make note of that in this thread, please do so now. That way your effort will be chronicled for posterity. Thanks.

Well, I haven't beaten any games other than what's listed already, but I did start Earthbound Beginnings yesterday. I'm hoping I can at least get to the part where I recruit Ana before the month's out, but I intend to finish it either way. I'm still wandering around Podunk with just Ninten though.

I also beat a couple of other games starring ladies this month, but they were both from much later generations so they don't exactly count. Still, they were fun and had an old-school kinda feel, so thats nice. Those games were Tobu Tobu Girl for GB and Rhyme Rider Kerorican for Wonderswan Colour.

My final list played was:
Legacy of the Wizard (beaten)
The Legend of Zelda starring Zelda (beaten)
Wonder Girl: The Dragon's Trap (beaten)
Valkyrie No Densetsu (not beaten)
Earthbound Beginnings (started but likely not beaten)

I beat Golden Axe right before the month started to set the mood.

I then beat Gain Ground. I made it into the lower 40s in Flicky but currently cannot finish due to a computer issue.

I'm not sure if you need any additional information.

I added your stuff to my list guys.

If its information already in this thread, then I've got it in the list. If someone played or beat something for ELN but posted about it in "now playing" or "games beaten", instead of in the ELN thread proper, then chances are I missed it. If they want that information included in the final tally, they need to post about it here so I can add it.

Any particular cutoff for this aspect Ex? I'm still planning on playing The Guardian Legend, but I could definitely understand it falling through the cracks if I don't post about it until 11:50 PM on the 31st or something.

The tally encompasses games played for ELN during March 1 - 31. As your curator, I consider ELN over as of April 1. If you're playing a game for ELN right now, that you don't think you'll have beaten by April 1, tell me and I'll add it as something you're playing during the time frame. At least it'll make it on that tally in some capacity.

I'm hoping to get back to The Guardian Legend this weekend and knock it out in the nick of time. Though my weekend doesn't start until Sunday... either way I want to finish it soon. Life stuff has been killing me this month so this is the only one I really got around to. The Wing of Madoola really caught my eye though so I want to check that one out someday.
