Formatted the first drive. I had GITS series on it.
@Rickyk - Thanks for the offer. I am really a bit torn about it. On one hand I would love it and on the other hand that was not why I was giving away the HDD. @vyral_143 can confirm how much I hate Seagate now but this trooper I got as a replacement for the Internal Samsung I had in my PCS PC back in 2004 still refuses to die. I had got that casing to make it an external HDD but barely used it because a) I had 2.5 inch hdds with 1TB/2TB capacity and b) 40 (38) GB is barely anything these days (No disrespect to this HDD which was in my system till 2009).
I thought I would build a retro pc some day and will put this to use but @vivek.krishnan beat some sense into me as it is impossible to find old pc parts that will not conk off the next day and @dottedindian too pitched in about drivers being a nightmare on 98.
So I will try and send this HDD as soon as possible to you just do me one favor. Let the first game to be played on this HDD be Crimson Skies. Give the HDD a good home (rig) mate.
@quan chi - Sorry man will post pics of Yakuza and MGS tomorrow for sure. Kinda caught up setting up my new Laptop. BTW you can have the IDE contraption I am using in the pic.
Thanks to @vyral_143 for accidentally bumping into this title and getting it for me.

The game was released only as an Asian release and is a compilation of
Sengoku Basara 2
Sengoku Basara 2 : Heroes
The game can be best described as a capcom developer who was drunk was asked to make a game on Samurais. He played a bit of Dynasty Warriors, Watched Chuck Norris movies and then remembered he had to make a game on Samurais so he watched Gintama. The games are a direct result of that drunk developer.
Sure it is a button masher and repetitive and in Japanese and I don't know what I am doing in it. In fact the menu itself was a killer but when I got around that and started playing the games. It was hilarious, over the top and the characters speaking engrish in edo era had me in splits.
What I really loved about the collection is the amount of work they put in it. The graphics in 2 and 2:Heroes were actually better than some of the PS3 launch games. There is a menu to select the 3 games, has extras and an overall intro to the 3 games in it. You then go into the 3 games and they had their own original intros that was remastered and the menu in each game was modified so that the user can escape to the collection main menu by pressing the triangle button without quitting the the entire thing using the PS button and launching the game again.
This is where I began hating Capcom because they should have implemented this in DMC HD Collection, added extras like they did in this game. They should have just translated the menus and added subtitles and released the collection in the west. No change in voice acting because it is the cheesy one liners in Engrish that make this game even more fun.
Capcom should have promoted this game. Unlike Dynasty Warriors it is more colorful and light hearted.
Thanks to @quan chi for giving me a price update on this game and telling me about the others in the series.
Hi all! I'm new to this site but I'm a regular at IVG under the same username. I collect mostly Nintendo games and consoles and have acquired a nice collection over the past few years. I'll slowly post pics of everything if you guys are interested. Most gamers in India are into Playstation and Xbox I guess
I'll start by posting pics of a mod that I made a couple of days ago. It's a backlit Gameboy Advance! I'm totally stoked to have done this successfully It'll replace the GBA SP I was using till now. That hurt my hands after using it a little bit. This should be much better.
How the GBA screen looks originally (pic from Google). No backlight and is visible only with external light.
Gathered the required parts
Completely disassambled both consoles
Testing the screen
Some plastic has to be removed from the shell to make room for the replacement screen
After removing the plastic
New screen fits perfectly
I posted the quoted message nearly a year back.I love physical copies of games for the same reasons. I absolutely hate the fact that they removed the physical manuals in Vita games boxes.
I had to go through a lot of hooplas just to get a copy of GTA 3 manual. I even emailed Rockstar regarding it and then finally had to buy the entire 3d era collection to just get the manual.
The physical copies of certain games that I have feel as if they're pirated. It is why I stay away from physical copies of PC games now.
Guys keep posting. I am loving this stuff.
Btw here's something -
I didn't have a pc or afford games so when I found these copies from Raddiwalas I picked them up and read them. That's all I could do. Sadly who ever owned the Game Force magazine was a real jerk. The beautiful artwork of Oni is ruined.
This is the Indiana Jones game I think - Indiana Jones and the infernal machine. Funny the article has a then and now comparing the game to it's Atari Counterpart. What if we compared this to Uncharted 4.
I so wanted to play superbike 2000 after reading this article over and over and seeing the then photorealistic screenshots. I bought a pc but couldn't find it but found superbike 2001.
Behold the first PC game I ever bought.
My favorite bike game to this day. If I had a ps2 and tourist trophy on it may be I would've a different opinion but since I didn't this rocks.
Here are another 2 -
Oni is a game made by Bungie before they were developing exclusively for Microsoft for a few years. We got Halo out of that deal but sadly no sequel to this after that and Destiny after that. Amazing Hand to hand combat and an okay third person shooter with a good Sci Fi story and anime cutscenes. What more could you ask for?
Rune too was an amazing game for it's time but I got bored and I was playing that after SoF2: Double Helix so sight play much.
Sadly I couldn't get the actual boxes and back when I bought them I was not into collecting. I saw the actual Rune box in a recent LGR review and it is amazing. That reminds me if you guys like old PC games then LGR is worth checking out. Like MJR he too has a large collection but mainly reviews old PC games.
