  1. Death squared on switch is very rare, Australian and USA copy. They want for AUS$500 initially. There's a couple of copiess sitting at AUS$400, but there's been a random one sitting at AUS$200 for a while, but no one has bought it.
  2. Hi All, Was browsing on ebay and can't across one of these (no affiliation to eBay listing) : https://www.ebay.com/itm/233487883641 Anyone seen one of these before and know the history? Thanks
  3. When I was collecting famicom, I wanted one of those cases so badly but could never find one at the price I wanted. After a quick check just now, seems like they keep going up in price!
  4. Thanks for that. After a quick google, supposedly the arcade name is a tribute to the 1983 movie Wargames, that has an arcade named "20 grand palace". And, the arcade is still in operation today but known as Grinkers Grand Palace: https://www.grinkers.com/default.aspx
  5. Thanks for bringing this one up. Is Galleria the name of the shopping mall or the arcade? IRL, one of the shipping malls they used in T2 had galleria in the name.
  6. Hi all, I was recently searching arcade amusement centres as potential future man cave inspiration, including a feature display sign. Just wondering if anyone knows the names of fictional arcade amusement centres from movies and tv shows? There's resources on the internet about arcade games in movies, but none about the names of the fictional arcade amusement centers they were within. Please state the arcade amusement name and the movie / tv show and I'll compile a list. Thanks! --------------------------------------------- Arcade amusement name - Movie / TV show 20 grand palace - Wargames Captain Blip's Zapateria - The Simpson's, Ep 381 Close Encounter - Robotech Flynn's - Tron / Tron Legacy Litwak's Family Fun Centre and Arcade - Wreck it Ralph The Palace - Stranger Things
  7. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.statista.com/chart/amp/15293/price-for-cigarettes-per-country/ Smokes are ridiculously expensive in Australia, hence why he asked to sneak in a pack. If he gets caught, he won't get in trouble. He will have to pay tax on them.

  9. Super Mario bros 1 on nes when I was 6 years old. Was the only game I had for 1.5 years and I absolutely thrashed it. I got so good, I finished six times in a row without getting touched (4 warp finishes, two full run throughs). After that, I asked for a new game.
  10. I personally don't see an issue with new topics being shown the link to an existing thread. It makes for efficient storage and reference of information. But, it's important to keep the new topic with point link, as it help people find the actual thread. That being said, there is a nice way it should be done. From what I recall an NA, this was done in a nice way also.
  11. Hey all, if anyone is interested in importing j Japanese games, check out Amazon Japan. I was in Japan recently and when I checked online prices, Amazon JP was the same as Japanese physical store prices. If anyone knows of better online retailers, please let me know.
  12. I had no issue with the old forum overall. However, the non mobile friendly layout was slightly frustrating, but understandable given it was custom created in a pre-mobile world. One huge benefit of the GC NA purchasing Saga was the simulateneous closing of all sister sites. This has now unified all collectors and content across multiple sites onto one forum now (vgs). While I'm a nintendo collector, I do like reading about other consoles, and it's great having everyone in the one place. NA had a reputation for having a high ban rate of members, and it was a little unsettling reading old posts and seeing the "banned" logo on people frequently. I'm not sure why this was the case. Other than occasional posts, I never interacted with the community, so wasnt sure if it was due to shady characters, or overzealous moderators or strict site rules (no disrespect to any NA mods who came across). Overall, vgs is certainly much better, keep up the great work team!
  13. Glenlivet is one of my favourite whiskies. Managed to get an 18 and 21 year old bottles years ago and thoroughly enjoyed them. Long gone now unfortunately. On the bright side, going to Japan tomorrow, I have researched a few good whiskies to get.
  14. Thanks for the link. Not quite what I was looking for as it lists all Japanese games with English language options, so can't identify exclusives. However, I found this link for exclusives only : https://www.jpswitchmania.com/post/region-exclusive-releases-with-english-support-japan-asia Come to think of it, weren't we tracking jp exclusives in this thread?!
