Curious as to which Saturn games you are lacking. Panzer Dragoon Saga? Funniest thing about that netlink version of CCE is there are prob a few copies just collecting dust and scratches in basements and thrift stores.
Thanks for asking! Here are the ones I am still lacking:
1. Burning Rangers
2. Dragon Force
3. The House of the Dead
4. Magic Knight Rayearth
5. Megaman 8: Anniversary Collector’s Edition
6. Saturn Bomberman
7. Shining Force III
8. Shining Wisdom
I actually scored a complete Panzer Dragoon Saga a couple years ago on eBay for a fraction of it’s current worth, thanks to searching often and buying it with the first 10 minutes of it being listed so low.
I constantly check game stores and eBay for a DUSA Netlink CCE, because even though I’m not going to truly count it as part of the USA collection, it’ll always be an itch that I can’t scratch having it missing. And like you’re saying, I believe there are cases of them sitting somewhere in a deep dark recess of the world, waiting to make their obscurity and value plummet!

We had such an amazing weekend getting to hang out with our friends and meeting some new cool people. The convention isn’t always that great but the socializing and parties at the Choo Choo is absolutely the best.

NECA has done another excellent job with the NES edition Robocop!
Snagged a Sega NOMAD (with battery adapter, all cables, AND a carrying case) for a tremendous price this past weekend.
I remember wanting one of these worse than any other handheld when I was a kid.
Got a good deal on eBay for a completely MINT copy of Sega Ages.
This brings the total US Saturn games needed to finish my collection down to 8! At this rate, I MIGHT actually finish this year. I just have to keep finding these good deals.
A huge haul of $1 games that only needed a quick buffing to be like new.
A copy of the rarest Sega Saturn release of all time was sold on eBay at the end of January for $1467.00 (plus shipping). It’s so rare that it used to only be a rumor that it ever existed.
Daytona USA Championship Circuit Net Link Edition was only available through Sega’s online store. The ONLY difference between this release and the regular CCE is the Net Link compatibility and a black & white manual that includes a Net Link supplement.
I honestly don’t count this towards getting 100% of all Sega Saturn US releases, because it’s the same game as the regular CCE except for the completely useless capability to direct-dial someone else with a copy of game and a Net Link enabled Sega Saturn.
The addition of Contra: Legacy of War brings me down to only 9 titles left to complete my Sega Saturn collection.
That’s two Saturn additions within a week, but I fear the high price tags on such titles as Burning Rangers and House of the Dead will keep me shopping around hoping for a bargain.
I found a completely MINT copy of Battletoads/Double Dragon locally and could not pass it up at the fair price it was marked (for it’s perfect condition).
This has been one of the most asked about titles when people visit and want to play games. This is actually the only Double Dragon title I’ve never gotten to play, so I’m excited to fire it up this weekend!
My only gaming-related New Years Resolution is to complete the Saturn collection once and for all.
Along with getting a few manuals to complete my current games and snagging a few oddball demo discs, I finally broke down and bought a complete Albert Odyssey: Legend of the Eldean to start the year off right.
This brings to total of Saturn games needed down to ONLY 10!
Found an extra NECA blue Claptrap figure for only $5 and decided a custom variant wouldn’t be difficult, so I used Citadel “Mephiston Red” paint to make myself a little different Claptrap (because I need an entire rainbow of them).
Got an excellent deal on a huge lot of N64 games from my pal nightmare-bruce.
This lot was definitely my Christmas present to myself!

Yes, there is a person in that armor. No, getting him down and back up was not easy.
