On Monday the last two VB games I needed to complete my collection of U.S relesed games finally came in the mail. The two games were Waterworld, and Jack Bros. I never thought that when I first got my VB I would actully own every U.S relesed game but from looking hard enough for the best deals on all of the games I somehow did. Now this collection still did not come cheap, All of my collection has cost me around $300. Please note I know that Jack Bros, and Vertical Force are the import versions.

Cool... congrats, though that's an odd set, being a "collection of US released games", though not all US versions. Do you plan on getting all US versions eventually?

The US version of Jack Bros is better IMO (since there's quite a bit of text, though none really important)... and last I knew, Vertical Force US wasn't too expensive. How about JP only games? I see you've got Space Squash (good choice)... any plans for others, like Virtual Fishing, Insmouse, or others?

Yeah I know Vertical Force isn't to expensive but when I bought it the only U.S versions of the game that I was able to find were about twenty dollars more than the import version and they were just the cartridges without the dust caps, So I figured that I would get the import version since it was complete, cheaper, and plays the same as the american version. Space Squash I always wanted the game but never really planed on getting it, until I was on ebay late one night and I found a boxed copy of the game for $15.00 so I happily bought it, as for the rest of the Japan only games im not really to interested in them.

fantastic collection mate! i still have like 5 US games to buy, 3d tetris, vertical force, golf, waterworld and jack bros :) - i recently got nesters funky bowling as well!

As for space squash, i got that game as well thanks to you - remember the guy selling the space squash had 2 available and you bought one and posted on here that there was one for sale?? i snagged it up and was forever thankful that you told me about it! i absolutely love the game and never really had the money to spend on it at the time! I wont forget this generous favour you did! You coulda bought them both and sold one for more :D

Thanks im glad you like my collection :) Yeah I remember with Space Squash I helped you get it im really glad that it went to you since you really wanted the game, I diddn't want to buy an extra copy of the game to sell beacause I knew that someone like us who really wanted the game would read the post about it and get a big kick out of getting the game for a great price.

yeah thats true, im thankful for it, i still play it as well, its in my VB right now! lol, besides i think if you posted it saying there were 2 and you snagged them both for that price then some people will get cranky lol, but it was a nice change from paying full price on a game, i actually clicked on the link when you had that thread and i was in shock that one was still available to buy!

Just finished a complete boxed US collection myself also including the 2 loose "Not for resale" Red Alarm and Wario demo carts. Now I just need those pesky "Big 4" JPN games, and InsMouse/spaceSquash to complete the library, until I buy all the JPN doubles of US games I own to get a 100% collection (+the sample JPN games).
