My personal retro speciality is the Pioneer LaserActive – I contribute actively to perhaps the most active LaserActive blog on the web – and so I couldn’t help but post about this bumper crop of LaserActive auctions, all starting at a low minimum bid of $25. While all LaserActive games aren’t easy to come by, some of the games in this collection are truly rare – you’re going to want to keep your eye on these for the next week. Below, I’ve included the links and various descriptions of each game for auction. Happy bidding, and expect a full LaserActive price guide from me in the future!
Melon Brains – A semi-interactive documentary on dolphins with trippy visuals. Sort of a proto-DVD. The English version in this auction is rare.
Hyperion – A space-shooter by Taito, best described as a mix between Starblade and the original Star Fox. The only true co-op game on the LaserActive, and one of the best games on the platform – a true adrenaline rush! English only.
I Will: The Story of London – A strange edutainment FMV mystery game themed around the city of London. Bilingual.
Ghost Rush – A randomized dungeon crawler that uses charming puppet stop animation for its enemy graphics. Fairly rare, bilingual.
Don Quixote: A Dream in Seven CrystalsÂ – A true anime RPG in humble Dragon Quest style. Quite a long trek, but with some truly good animation. English version in this auction is extremely rare, the rarest of the bunch here.
The Great Pyramid – Another semi-interactive documentary, this time on the Great Pyramids of Giza. English version.
