    Personal, nothing more or less. I was forced to sell my NGPC collection off over unemployment a dozen years back. I do draw the line though, as I doubt I'll want to pop for Cotton or Rockman since they go over $100. The only cheap one left is Baseball Stars to finish it.

    I think all of the mini games look apropriate to the time the 'original' was released - the changes in graphics are one of the aspects that make putting time into Neo Poke Kun so rewarding.

    Nice thumbnail - could you link the write up? Interested in reading it if it is in a language I understand (went to the blog in your sig... sadly I can't read Polish)

    I never noticed that with my Flashmasta... maybe it was fixed somewhere down the line? Maybe I was using patched roms without noticing... or I was just too stupid to notice ^^

    I hear you! Cotton is one of the few games I'm missing to complete the jap set and prices have skyrocketed. Still aiming to get one around the 100$ mark, but with lots of patience I guess... I wasn't going to pick up the flashcart since I already have most of the games, but if I can't manage to get the missing ones I might end up getting it.

    BTW, I haven't been able to find a complete jap Picture Puzzle in a while either. Has that one become sorta strange too?

    Flash kit is there because of the prices. Cotton(US) and Rockman are the 2 losses I can not currently stomach the price to repurchase which is a shame as they're two amazing games.

    Carts are only worth it if you have the manuals. I love the manual art.
    Looking for UK copies of Dive Alert Becky's Version, Puzzle Link 1 and 2, Gals Fighters, and Pocket Reversi.

    Unfortunately, it is in Polish. You can try using Google Translate, but the idiomatic expressions are messing up the translation. For instance, a paragraph which mentions that SNK "bit off more than they could chew" trying to supersede Nintendo's Game Boy is translated as "SNK decided to throw a hoe on the sun", which is a very literal translation, and while not entirely wrong per se, it doesn't make any sense in English. Oh well. Here's the link if you're interested or want to have a laugh with the robot translation: *click*

    P.S. - The text contains some broken links, the thumbnail image being one of them. I hosted these files on Image Shack, but they deleted old accounts. I still have the files, so all I need to do is fix them. I also linked to my dumped save file and three mini-games from the official Poke Kun website, which were released as Windows executables with MIDI music. I need to upload that stuff again. I did a write-up on Faselei as well, linking to the opening music and mentioning which movie the samples speech came from.

    So this is a thing. The official neo poke-kun site was actually archived, & surprisingly enough, 3 of the .exe minigames they put up for sampling are still active to download.

    jdoll, are you Tanooki in disguise? Punctuation is your friend. Your wife obviously is not. Keep the NGPC and lose the wife.

    This guy appears to be a trainwreck.

    Selling an NGPC if he can get more for it than he paid at a pawn shop, per his wife.

    No price nor pictures listed but one can score a copy of Metal Slug First Mission for almost double its value.
