Look what I found!

Postby TheJamsh » Sun Feb 07, 2016 4:59 pm

Found a still sealed copy on EBay! Bargain at only £30! Very chuffed with this, though I did break the seal when opening the package, so I guess I should open it after all..

Very nice find.

Still got my original case sitting around in pretty good condition after all these years.

Was just looking at my BZII case in storage today. Made me sniffle a little bit. :D

Mine got destroyed / lost to the wilderness a long long time ago. I miss the days when games came in boxes like these :'(

I've been grabbing foreign language copies of both games left right and centre over the last few weeks, it's interesting what turns up.

It's a shame that attaining "collectors item" status isn't really a desirable state for a computer game to achieve. :(

Especially for games that are out of print and can only have a limited number of legitimate copies available. I'm not sure this counts as a collector's item since Jamsh's original copy was destroyed (as mine was, unfortunately :( )

Yeah I guess it wouldn't be a collectors item, unless somebody erm... collected them. I have however still not taken it out of the box. I don't wanna break that 'New Game but 17 years old' smell..

I seriously hope we can ship a game with a box like this one day... those were the days!

My BZ2 case was just a CD case, found it on the side of the road. It was cracked but it still had the cover art on it inserted on the inside. I lost the case but I still have the cover art and the disk in a special new case :), however it's in storage at the moment :/ I keep a stock disk image on my computer and on several other drives just in case though.
I've been lurking....

I thought I'd already posted this here, but apparently not. This is one of the downsides to running the wiki.

No duplicates, and most will be sold one once I've finished using them.

Rock On AHADLEY. I do see one missing. Red Oddy, yes i know it's in the gold edition but it's actually got it's own artwork and case from what evolve says.i tried and tried to track one down. but your collection kills mine though. i was more going after discs of different installations.

My collection exists purely to ensure I have everything archived, hence most being sold on. Copies of The Red Odyssey are incredibly rare and are probably worth more than all of these put together. They became even rarer when all the unsold copies Robert Waring had in his garage were destroyed in a flood.
