12 Months, 14 Shmups, £1200 – Game #3

To understand what I’m attempting to achieve with this project do please see the previous blog entry here:


The 3rd game in the project was secured today, missed out on a few nicely priced copies of Radiant Silvergun and was going to settle on a copy of Soldier Blade for the PC Engine. I'd put a £100 offer in on a copy of Last Duel last month and had it turned down, I had a last ditch £115 offer on the same game and to my surprise it was accepted!! It's a complete copy and looks like it's in tip top condition, it was bloody expensive (over my estimate) but still the cheapest copy for the condition.

I could have the game by the weekend and I can't wait play it.
