Cool! I kinda-sorta have one of those, in the sense that I have an SE/30 in the basement that needs to be recapped so it'll boot (more or less the same computer in an all in one). Yours probably has a color video card though.

If it didn't come with a compatible monitor, you'll likely need an adapter to connect it to much of anything. While there are plenty of software repositories out there, you might also need something to create Mac floppies (such as this).

Those in italics are digital games; those in standard font are physical. Anything crossed out has since been sold and is out of my collection, but I'm keeping those counted towards the YTD count since I did acquire them this year.

My sis-in-law's dad is actually an electrical/computer engineer (I don't kremember specifically), so this is his old work computer, as it turns out XD
It's taken him so long to send it to me because he's been working with his friends to fix it. They must've been having a lot of fun X3
But they already tested everything out, and even provided the old analog to the new analog adapter already! They're so nice QwQ

I've been very busy lately, so I haven't had time to try setting it up yet, but that should be something I'm able to get to today :D

On another note, I had a LOT of amazon credit from trading in old textbooks, and I saw a copy of Mario X Rabbids on there for only $48 new, so I snagged it. It gets here and it turns out it's a PAL copy with a big PEGI rating on the front. More than that, all the text on the back is in two language. Everything is in French, and then it has a Dutch or English-language counterpart. Never both Dutch AND English, just one or the other :lol:
That'll be another thing I get to eventually. Debating between doing that and restarting the first Edo-period Yakuza game again for my next console adventure.

I haven't been keeping super up to date with posts here, but here are some stuff I've recently gotten:

WiiWare
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life as a King
Pokemon Rumble
Snowpack Park
Tomena Sanner
Zombie Panic in Wonderland

Wii
Fishing Resort

Steam
Zwei: The Arges Adventure

I haven't gotten too many games this month, but I have been trying to get all of the WiiWare games that I want before the Wii's shop closes. There's still a few more that I want to get, but not too many.

Also Fishing Resort was free since I had a Gamestop giftcard to use. It looks like it's in good condition too! Now I need that fishing controller haha.

I saw this as well! But ... that's really all I know about it. :oops: So get me up to speed; what are we looking at here? Sequel? Remaster? Direct port? Thanks in advance!

Game was originally on PC. Think this is mostly a (very late) localization.
