Swapmeet Videogames Coming your Way!

Post by Pizzaking27 on Mon Sep 03, 2012 8:34 am

I got a bunch of videogames at a swapmeet, yesterday, as well as 2 videogames that I never got a chance to tell you about last week. I never got a chance to show them all to you, so I felt like posting them all here before school begins tommorrow:

Reader Rabbit Preschool (1997) I thought about buying this videogame last week due to all the nostalgia I've had with Reader Rabbit! In this videogame, like RR1, he looks like Thomas the Tank Engine compared to the other characters and animals, and that's a fact! And to add insult to injury, the animals in the Pattern Parade look so cute! Also, in case you're wondering, yes. I own the British dub! (The voices sound pretty weird)
WWF Wrestlemania (PSX in 1995) I bought this game, because it's one of the first ever wrestling games for the PSX! The game itself looks less like a wrestling game and more a Mortal Kombat game, becuase the characters move too fast, and they look pretty realistic. And so, after a few minutes, the game gets a bit boring.
Lion and the King (1999) Not really a game. Just one of Midas Interactive Entertainment's very crappy "PlayStation Movies", which were actually filmed in the days of Putt-Putt Joins the Parade and Just Grandma and Me, which were only sold in Europe. (the PSX game, not the PC titles) The name and boxart of the videogame is a BIG ripoff of the Disney movie, the Lion King, which both have similar concepts, despite a slightly different cast... Oh, and the animations and movements are just as crappy as those in the Nintendo CD-i videogames.
Monopoly (PSX in 1997) This should make the king of LEGO bricks happy! This little tie-in based on the world's favourite board game was first released on the PC when legoking831 was born and then ported to the PSX 2 years later! (when I was born)
A Bugs' Life (PSX in 1998) Hooray! I now own the 2nd ever Pixar videogame on the PlayStation! The first version of a Bugs' Life I had was the PC version, then years later, I got the N64 version at my favourite target store of all time, Games2Replay, and now it all comes to THIS! I haven't got A Bugs' Life for all the consoles I can stomach, though. There's a GBC version of the game, but with different gameplay, which I don't have yet!
Rayman (PC in 1994) Before I had this PC version of Rayman, I had the Focus Multimedia version of Rayman Gold, with the disc tracks completely missing for an unexplained reason. I can now listen to music while playing Rayman. (I also own the PSX version of Rayman, which also has CD tracks, but the sound effects and saving function are slightly different)
Hogs of War (PC in 2001) That's a Worms RIPOFF, but with pigs in army suits... kinda like Army Men, isn't it? In this game, the Hogs also explode when they die, but we all know that no living things explode when they die! And when they're low on health, they start to move slower than they usually do, unlike the Worms, who use their normal speed when they're low on health!
Tomb Raider (PSX in 1995) This game, along with Crash Bandicoot and Super Mario 64, defined graphics at their best with a completely new genre: Modern Action Adventures! The graphics are just awesome for 1995, and even in MSDOS, it still gets better in the PC version! And in case you're wondering, yes. I own the British dub!
Moto Racer (1997) I'm not sure why I wanted to buy this game, but I felt like buying it anyway... I shouldn't've been bothered to buy this game, am I a hardcore Humongous fan, neither would've I been a fan of motorbikes and such, but maybe I bought it because I wanted the closest thing to Cyberbykes I could find...
Pingu Forever (2005) Not a game, but a DVD instead. It was the only thing I got from the swapmeet that isn't a videogame. I felt like buying this little bargain, because there's an episode that was banned from cable TV, that accidentally made its way to DVD! It was called Pingu's Lavatory Story, in which Pingu drinks too much beer and has explosive pee, so he rushes home to the bathroom only to find out that it was occupied, so he does a potty dance while he waits to get in, and then when he makes it to the bathroom, he can't reach the toilet, so he pees on the floor. This results in his dad shouting at him! Freddi: Laughing Luther: BAHAHAHA!
Play with the Teletubbies (PSX in 1999) I don't know why I wanted to buy this, but I felt like buying the game anyway. Please forgive me, though. I cannot believe Teletubbies exists, so the disc makes a cool coaster! And in case you're wondering, yes. I own the British dub! (the voices do sound similar in both the UK and US, though)

And now for the moment you've all been waiting for... [w]Drum roll, please![/w] Just let me prematurely hit the enter key.











Putt-Putt Enters the Race (1999) Yes, you name it! It was there, alright! I've never seen a Humongous game turn up at a swapmeet before, but this is getting awesome! Whoever bought that must've really put some effort in there! What deep joy! I just can't believe it was there! Amazing good fun! WHEE! And in case you're wondering, yes. I own the British dub! (this should make GQG happy)

Oh, before the buck stops here, I want to tell you that I own a very odd PSX game. It's Disney's Story Studio: Mulan (1999). It plays alot like the PC version, except for the controls and the exit feature, which just resets to the title screen after the credits.

Whew, that's alot of videogames! I'm such a spoiled brat!

Nice finds. I've seen some of those Midas Interactive "games" before and I can honestly say that I've seen better animation ripoffs sold at the dollar store. (Dollar stores where I live have been known to sell DVDs of knockoff animation, especially those that are based off of the same public domain stories as major Disney movies.)
Also, good job finding Putt-Putt Enters the Race. I'm not sure, but I think it might be the UK dub with the most changes to it as far as writing and character names go. Don't quote me on it, though!
Also, just a heads up. If your copy of Rayman is anything like the version I have, you're gonna need Dosbox to get it running, since it's pretty much impossible to run it normally on a machine made in the past decade.

Wow, good job about GQG telling you all about the British dubs so much that you think you've seen the Midas Interactive games at a dollar store!

Also, what is your version of Rayman like?
