Well no, this blog is not dead, I have just over one second for me to feed. In fact I returned to school and my two year old girl holds me well.
Since the last update I've obviously got tons of games and some consoles. Finally, few games “Current-Gen”, as they say in informed circles, but especially the retro !
I received récement another beautiful piece that I really wanted to introduce. This console NEO-GEO AES South Korean manufactured and Continue reading →
La saga Shinobi, which will celebrate its 25 years next November, is a series that I particularly since its first episode on the Master System to the Saturn version kitchissime. I must admit that everything that followed these securities is relatively uninteresting for me.
Obviously the best for me are 3 episodes appeared on the Megadrive : The Super Shinobi (Revenge of Shinobi) and his unforgettable compositions Yuzo Koshiro, The Super Shinobi II (Shinobi III home) and Shadow Dancer.
BUT ! Do not forget the original, and especially very good episodes Gamegear the conduct “Megamanesque”. Continue reading →
This is the tenth anniversary of the GameCube in France ! I seized the opportunity when the GameCube occupies minds to present an exclusive list and asked me several months of research : the master list of games released in South Korea. After talking with a Korean collector and scoured many blogs of retro-gaming in this country I think I can say today that the list is complete ! The “Full-setters” be happy, since it does not count that 27 titles… Unfortunately, like the iQue GBA games, they will be quite hard to find. Continue reading →
Here is 3 Korean small cartridges not commonly found in cheap. These are sized sets Master System / Mark III Japanese, ie with a box height and a different PCB, incompatible with our consoles Western. The Master System was released in Korea as the Gam*Boy and later in the year 90 under the name’Aladdin Boy ( see my folder on the Super Gam * Boy ), both in the form of a Master System 1 or 2 distributed by Samsung. So hard to find items, same as those in loose 3 games small games. Continue reading →
It’s been quite a while now that I have had some deep interest for the South Korean video game market. It first started a few years back when I moved to Hong Kong for a job at a videogames online retailing company. I started getting a few Playstation 2 and Gamecube Korean games because these were offering Japanese artworks with English ingame texts. That was until I found out about a retro-gaming market in South Korea. As a collector of Japanese games I found it very interesting to see that Korea had an alternative market of its own. And as a true Megadrive Fan I just went crazy when I found out about all the Sega games and systems sold in Korea under the Samsung license. I’ve already introduced the Hyundai Super Comboy aka Super Nintendo with my small collection of games to my French readers here and here and now the time has come to introduce you to the Samsung Super Gam*Boy!
It's been a while since I was very interested in the video game market South Korean. It all started a few years ago when I moved to Hong Kong for a job with a large sign of the online sales of video games. I remember I bought some Korean games on Playstation 2, then on Game Cube because they offered the advantage of having a beautiful packaging, similar to the Japanese versions, but with a game while English. All was well until one day I discovered the existence of a retro-gaming market South Korean. As a collector of Japanese games primarily, I found particularly interesting the fact that South Korea has had a market exists for itself and do not party at all “Asia”. Of course, as a fan of the first hour of the Sega Megadrive, I was speechless when I saw the first photos of consoles and games Sega Koreans distributed by Samsung. I had already presented the Super Comboy Hyundai here and is and my small collection of games for this console, it's time for me now present to you the wonderful Super Gam * Boy from Samsung !
