Thanks guys ... when you guys have time please delete this page... my stupidity made me do it :v:/>
So this is a thing. A Company of Heroes board game:
Hey, here is an obtuse request.
I recently got a New 3DS (non-XL, brand new old stock from japan) and I went all out with custom firmware and decrypted roms and stuff.
Obviously, my keenest interest is in the M2 Sega 3D archives, which are awesome. However, it's telling me that Vol 3 "Final Stage" has a pending update, but since I've swapped regions to the EUR Operating System (so that I can read the text), Nintendo doesn't like me accessing the e-shop from the wrong region. Does anyone know if there is anything worth updating? I could go back to the JPN OS, but I won't bother if it's not worth it. It may not even work, as my decrypted rom might have been hacked to be region free, so an update patch would probably screw it up. Same story with Puyo Puyo Tetris, which has been patched in English, but also has a potentially damaging update pending.
Also, I might have trouble unlocking the bonus games in Vol 3, which requires saves from Vol 1 and Vol 2, as I can't find a workable version of the Japan release of Vol 2 (since the US/EU release is more commonly available). If anyone has overcome this hurdle, feel free to share what the solution is. I'd love to play Girl's Garden and Champion Boxing in 3D.
Found something VERY interesting on another forum:
Oooh - get it archived
In other news
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen....
I'm not so sure that's going to happen. The dude works for a fabrication company, and as I understand it from his other posts, has literally boxed up blueprints for arcade cabinets such as Virtua Fighter and Street Fighter 2 and put that box in a furnace for destruction purposes. He is also saying that because the department of Sega which had those machines fabricated no longer exists, they can not have orders to destroy them and will remain warehoused forever. He does not seem to keen on archiving anything.
I think he was just paraphrasing what he always says - put it on the wiki.
I am wiki-impaired and have wikieditphobia...
I just found out that Football Manager 2005 had a special version of itself made for China.
Is this the case going forward with the series?
I didn't consider that these might exist - bootleg Sega Saturn games.
Capcom were very close to releasing X-Men vs. Street Fighter in the west, but gave up because it wasn't worth the hassle.
it's all part of Dutch's plan.

A friend of mine recently procured a Spider-Man game on the Mega Drive. However, I'm unsure of it's legitimacy, due to lacking any form of SEGA Mega Drive marking on the box. To better elaborate, I've asked them to send pictures to show what I mean:
The person who originally bought it claims it's an Australian PAL release, but I'm unsure due to the lack of any Mega Drive logo, or even production company logo. The cartridge sticker is also off to me: it looks like someone just crunched down the front cover and slapped it on there. Don't most Mega Drive cartridges usually have the name at the top shrunk down to fit?
Well regardless, does anyone know if these are legitimate in any way? It's the rarity of the cart and the tracking of an Australian copy to check it against that's posing the biggest problems, and I'd rather not tell them it's fake without some form of external verification...
It's unlikely to be an Australian Ozisoft release - That K-A logo is an American thing, we would have used a G for General audiences
WHO LIKES STAGE PLAYS!?
Right, thank you kindly. I was unsure of the ratings system, I'll inform them of it.
It's a bootleg.
We've got an Australian release of Spider-Man (Acclaim) listed as existing, but they don't seem to be very common, and I think they're the same as their European counterparts.
That being said Sega Retro is always looking to document bootlegs as well as the real things (ding). Spider-Man in particular can present a challenge since there's a few Spider-Man games and boxes don't always represent the contents of the ROM.
Well, I can sort it out with them and purchase it, if you would like it catalogued. They were going to sell it anyway, and let me see it first since I'm working on purchasing every PAL SEGA console game released.
Ignorance time! I have just learnt today that the official language of Iran is Persian, not Arabic. Maybe that's why we're playing games with oil tankers. Or maybe I just suck.
If I present a box like this:
is the "368 in 1" sticker a sign that this product was sold in Iran? Because I've collected a few similar photos as of late and am trying to make sense of it all.
From what i can see, that is Arabic and not Persian, and I've seen that Ready Mega drive being sold in Arabic sites.
And I from what I can read, the sticker says:
Separate names with a comma.
