And when I say Secret of Mana I meant 3 copies brand new and also a copy of Mario Paint brand new. No big deal but Kind of a big deal.

And here I got excited thinking this was a thread about playing Secret of Mana.

We have a thread dedicated to finds.

How about a video of you tearing that plastic off and popping that cart into your snes? Or will these be VGA graded and put a shelf and just stared at while you jerk off to it?

There ya go. Pretty much a good idea given that post is right, this is a deals board isn't it? I can only imagine the deal the seller/trader got on those since it went into a game shop. :)


You know just something off the wall to consider. Do you leave them sealed or open them up? Batteries in games do have a shelf life in general and SNES games are failing these days, and also more and more are starting to turn up where they pop and wreck the board to some degree too. Would a sealed one be better, or a new but unsealed one that's checked for safety sake ideal? I know I wouldn't buy a new game or console, or a console with known capacitor issues(NEC stuff, Game Gear) over a dead mint tested/recapped one.

All said and done however that happened good job having that walk in and being able to acquire that. FF2 and 3, CT too get far too much gamer bjs for quality when really this one does stand out supremely well and likely has probably the best sound track of a game on the system in the US as the clarity, uniqueness and diversity of the music tracks are unmatched. -- mario paint is nothing to brush off either as it's just an amazing package for all it did and allowed other games to do better too with that mouse. A shame we never got more Mario Paint games especially now with the cheapness of it with both systems out there now having a stylus and a touch screen with systems that both have net access and SD card slots to save things with.

Yes, this didn't need it's own thread (the finds thread would have been appropriate). ...but, a little decorum, please.

I feel like this was just an advertisement for his game shop, show no mercy!
