    A good 'smaller' importer that I'm a fan of is having a sale, and I thought I'd pass on the link.
    Wolf Games
    It's not a fancy Amazon style online retailer - it's one guy importing gear from Japan & selling it on - but don't let that stop you ordering. He's trustworthy, honest & very friendly. He's got a GREAT selection of Saturn, PSX & DC games, as well as a nice healthy set of games for things like the PCEngine, FM Towns, X68000 etc. And a nice second hand section for them all too.
    He's got a nice big sale going on, I've just bought a few older games I've been after [​IMG]

    WOW! Thanks Brian. I am putting in an order for Dracula X on the Saturn (which I've been looking for) and I'm even considering buying the Pc Engine Dracula X (Rondo of Blood, though 159 is quite the price but fair for this game which I've seen go for upwards of 300).

    You're welcome, Romier. I haven't ordered /that/ much from him, but he's got a superb, top class rep amongst friends/contacts etc.

    Romier, I am 99.99% certain that the Castlevania Chronicles disk recently released for the PS1 is the same as the PC Engine version. No need to spend $159, when it can be had for $20. It comes with the originial version and an "enhanced" version.

    Romier is correct....although it has been said by the man that he wants to do another Castlevania Chrinicles game and have it be Rondo of Blood.

    oh, my bad. Was the X68000 ever released in the states? or was it a Japan only affair like the FM Towns?

    Japan only affair, Oscar. Was home to a LOT of top notch arcade conversions (for that era), it has quite a cult following.

    Wolfgames is good. I used to hang out with the owner on IRC many years ago, he is an honest guy.
