Games that Will Cost You a Kidney: Shining Force III



Quote
It is a hard to find the classic in good used condition, meaning with case and manual.
The game can cost you on Amazon up to $1000 when it is all said and done.
Now, true collectors might be better off on Ebay,where a new factory sealed copy of the game is available for a whopping $6000 (true kidney money).

A'ight, let's compare some Shining characters to Fire Emblem characters as counterparts. I need them for this collage thing I'm working on. Tell me if you agree with any of them.

Hiro = Marth, Both are the protagonists of the very first games in their respected series.
Warrior or Max = Roy, Shining Soul debut on the Game Boy Advance and released around the same year (in Japan). Shining Force I, while released for the Mega Drive, was also remade for the Game Boy Advance. Which one should I pick?
Yuma Ilburn = Ike, Resonance came out for the PS3 which was a seventh gen console, The Wii also being a seventh gen console. (I would of chosen the ninth Shining game in the main series, but there's so many spin-offs, remakes and scenarios I dunno which one that would be.

I need suggestions for SSBU Fire Emblem: Awakening characters. I mean, I have seven spaces to fill on my collage and I figure they should all be Shining-Fire Emblem characters.

I don't play FE games long enough to even remember their names so I don't think I can contribute anything.

Wooden Plank Studios made this comparison though :

Happy 25th Anniversary! In 1997, Shining the Holy Ark is released for the Sega Saturn in North America!



Quote
As the capable mercenary Arthur, you must summon every ounce of your role-playing prowess and lead your comrades on a do-or-die hunt for the kingdom's sacred artifacts.
It's the RPG you've been waiting for, loaded with enough Medieval monsters and challenging "four character" control to stretch your role playing skills far beyond your wildest imagination.

SEGA Genesis Mini 2 will be in much shorter supply (around one-tenth) than original

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8RGornqWgw

Quote
My questions about Genesis Mini 2 shipments were forwarded to Sega of Japan's corporate office, which eventually confirmed that the new miniaturized console was a "Japan-only project" for the company.
"The Sega Genesis Mini 2 could only be produced in small numbers due to the global semiconductor shortage," reads a letter from the Sega president's office, so the company opted to produce a small Western batch of Genesis Mini 2s alongside its order of Mega Drive Mini 2s.
"The number of units for this project makes up around one-tenth of the total for the previous Genesis Mini," the letter states.
