    Thanks for the heads up. When I was a kid, I played a lot of Sonic, Streets of Rage, and Ninku on the system. Ninku was weird because at that time, K-Mart was selling used games and that one was a Japanese import.

    Mainly, for the system, I liked side scrollers, but now I just want to play good games. Basically, anything but sports.

    I can't think of a sports game on there I'd tolerate really. I don't keep fluff around so what is there I actually found some fun in owning and playing and there is a selection of side scrollers, but the variety is wider than that. As I said thankfully GG is the only one not screwed up by predatory douchebags (other than Mega Man US.) If you don't care about paper (manuals, primarily boxes) you'll pay like $3-20 for whatever, mostly in the $10-ish and under level for almost any of it. Those sites and my list of games would be a solid starting point.

    I've got a friend mailing me a free copy of Vampire for GG, can't wait. I had the SMS original of that as a PAL import and it's a solid good title.

    Funny enough, the SMS version is worth like 6 times the amount as the GG version.

    Stupid isn't it? UK release the US didn't get, so you get gougers often enough. If you can find one where it just flies along mostly ignored from a non-sheisty BIN it can still be ok. They're the same game though so it's dumb not to get it on GG if you have a choice or you're not some get em all collector.

    Got my Game Gear in today and it's fucking awesome to be able to play again. I had to make myself stop playing Super Columns earlier today and go get ready for work. Just like old times.

    Mailed the unit out on Monday 9/19, got it back Monday 9/26. One week on the nose. Expensive, but I'm happy.

    PS - Glass screen is tits.

    Sorry I'm late to this party, who did you have your system modded by?

    I've got a cap kit for one of my systems from console5, so I'll eventually end up doing one of the systems myself. But I'd love to have a working one in the meantime.

    PS - I'm about to get my fourth copy of Sonic 2 (the downside of buying games in lots). If anyone wants a copy I'll drop one into a padded envelope and ship it to you at cost.
    The listing in that link. I put $40 down and sent the GG off. After the seller was certain that the system was fixable, they had me send the remaining $30, for the LED backlight mod. Total price was for new capacitors, glass screen, LED backlight, and return shipping.

    Play it till it breaks, but buy the cap kit, led light/lcd now.

    It never hurts to be prepared.

    I disagree. It's a lot easier to change the caps before they start to leak.

    You should be pleased with it, as I said before it's a surprisingly well aged solid little RPG for the Game Gear which lacks such things.

    That small GG library up there above is more or less very solid to stick with or a base to work from to add more.

    Bro, I feel your pain. I'm in over a hundred bucks in the last month thanks to this thread.

    McWill modded GGs are pricey, so consider picking up an LED modded system. If you demand modern day LCD tech, definitely go for the McWill model, but if you don't mind 90's era LCD tech, then the LED mod is great.

    Where would you go to get a McWill modded GG? Does he mod them himself? Do you need to replace the caps before you put in the McWill?
    So many questions...

    It's recommended, but I haven't heard that it's necessary.

    I have never seen a McWill GG for sale except for once on another forum. I would think as preventive maintenance and since the game gear is open you may as well fix the caps. I fixed my friends Turbo Duo that had leaked all over the sound portion of the board. It was a pain and I had to fix some of the damaged traces.

    I been really thinking of getting a broken game gear and fixing it. This thread does not help lol.

    I haven't touched the cap replacement since I last updated about it - Just haven't had time.

    I look at my workbench and feel guilty.

    Hoping to get back into it this week, tho.

    There's still many hidden gems on the GG. This thread hasn't even scratched the surface.
    GG modding is expensive if you are paying for it. I'm sure part of that is the low demand.

    I still think this is one of the best systems to get into at the moment. Unlike many other retro systems, the game gear is just reasonable all over.
    - Low prices.
    - Low focus on boxes and manuals.
    - Huge Selection.
    - The games are very playable today.
