Snatcher (Sega Mega CD)

Hideo Kojima's Snatcher has always been reason enough to own to a Sega (Mega) CD and also a brilliantly atmospheric, excellently illustrated adventure game with obvious Blade Runner influences and some very intriguing ideas of its own. Also, it's one of the rarest Sega Mega CD games in existence; interested parties should have a look at this Snatcher (Sega Mega CD) eBay auction. 

The game comes complete in its case with the manual and seems to be in very good condition. Seller ships worldwide.

Twin Famicom & 8 Games

What you see above is the second version of that excellent and rather rare hybrid console: the Twin Famicom by Sharp. Obviously a Nintendo-licensed piece of hardware, the Twin Famicom plays both Famicom disks and cartridges, looks lovely and --in the case of the mark II above-- comes with turbo controllers.

Intrigued? Good. This Twin Famicom eBay auction should be of interest then. Its disk drive has not been tested (due to lack of disk based games), but the cartridge slot seems to work absolutely fine and it comes with two controllers, its original box and 8 games including Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy I & II, Galaxian and Sangokushi.

The Colonel's Bequest (Atari ST)

Probably my favourite Roberta Williams game, The Colonel's Bequest was an innovative murder mystery adventure game with obvious Agatha Christie influences published by Sierra in 1989. As was customary back in the day, it came in a hefty box filled with disks and goodies, a complete, sealed version of which you could grab on via this The Colonel's Bequest (Atari ST) eBay auction.

Interface 1 & Microdrives (ZX Spectrum)

This boxed Sinclair Interface 1 & Microdrives that's gone up for auction on eBay is a beautiful rarity for your ZX Spectrum and a testament to Sinclair's wild but not always successful ingenuity. The box includes the Interface 1, two Microdrives, two cartridges and the required cable. The items have not been tested, but should work fine as the seller claims they have hardly been used.

Vectrex 3D Imager & Games

Up for auction on eBay is a rare Vectrex 3D Imager accompanied by three cartridges and everything else (not much to be honest) you see on the pic posted above. And, yes, if you've never seen one of those headsets, they do exactly what you imagine them to: bring proper 3D to Vectrex gaming. And as the 3D Imager was released back in early 1984 it is indeed the very first virtual reality kit to ever hit homes worldwide.

The Vectrex 3D Imager on auction is in good condition and apparently works fine, as do the games that come along. The seller's shipping to quite a few places worldwide.

Every King's Quest Ever -- Almost

It may not be the best designed adventure series ever, but Sierra's King's Quest is historically important, wildly imaginative, evocative of the most nostalgic feelings and filled with more than enough amazing moments and clever puzzles. And King's Quest VI remains a truly great point-and-clicker set in a fantastic fantasy setting.

Better though, see for yourselves via this King's Quest collection that appeared on eBay. The highest bidder will be getting the boxed versions of all the games (with the exception of King's Quest VII) that seem to be both complete and in great condition. Also, an extra King's Quest VI copy.
