By Damien McFerran - 16 Sep, 2010
These are tough financial times indeed but thankfully our good friends at Genki have a few recession-busting game packs on offer to save a Yen or two and get your new retro gaming collection off to a flier.
With Saturn and PSX blasters aplenty and Dreamcast fighters to spare, you could save a packet. Also, Super Famicom fans that can live without the boxes can pick up some real bargains here. Beware though, because the hardest bit may be to give up the collecting instinct!
Five Fantastic Saturn Shooters Pack
The Saturn is renowned for its superb shoot em ups and these five will get plenty of playtime: Gradius Deluxe Pack, Cotton 2, ThunderForce Gold Pack 1, Ultimate Parodius and Layer Section (Saturn Collection.) The individual selling price of the games totals £129 making for a healthy saving to spend on another fine shooter.
Nine Nice PSX Shooters Pack
A bumper bundle of joypad busting shooters that combined would cost over £150 if bought individually. Each has an individual review on the site. A fine collection booster or gets a shooters fan journey on the Playstation off to a dream start: Sol Divide, The Rail Loaders TRL, Bokan To Ippatsu Doronbo (The Best), Raiden Project (The Best), Sonic Wings Special (Best), Strikers 1945 II (Superlite), Night Striker, Philosoma and Dezaemon Plus.
Five Fine Super Famicom Shooters Pack (Cart Only)
A tidy little bundle of shooters: R Type III, Kikikaikai, Flying Hero, Super Aleste and Darius Force. A big saving for those that can live without the boxes and manuals with amix of shooters from the sublime Super Aleste to the ridiculous Kikikaikai and Flying Hero.
Six Sizzling Super Famicom Action Pack (Cart Only)
A fine array of action titles: Ghost Sweeper Mikami, Final Fight Guy, Super Star Wars, Nosferatu, Super Mario Kart and Raccoon Rascal. A few of the finest titles to grace the system really full of fun and frolics. Each reviewed separately if you want to read us drool over them. Enjoy!
Capcom SNK Playstation Fight Pack
The pack consists of Capcom vs SNK Millennium Fight 2000 Pro, Samurai Spirits IV, Samurai Spirits Fencing Pack and Real Bout Garou Densetsu with separate selling prices of £80. Superb mechanics and covers the big two on the system of Capcom and SNK admirably.
