I'm thinking this thread should be renamed to:
"Rudy's acquisitions"
:)

:lol:

He's been on the hunt. He did have to sell quite a bit of his collection a few years back; so this is all recovery mode. (He's pressing F7 to restore, right now)

I have most of what I want - there's just a few I'd like to get my hands on again, Championship Boxing and Black Cauldron.

Other than that, like all the Hoyle, Fishing, Sports, etc - don't personally interest me for myself.

But Rudy does it all (maybe because he does want it), but I think it's mostly to have a complete archive of everything Sierra on his site.

"Rudy's acquisitions" continued :D

Got a bunch of things I never had before, as well as alternate releases and recovered some of my old boxes.

Nice going. I have the non-Discovery version of EQ1, but not that one. I would like to expand my Discovery series. Outside of those the only one missing is the HL2, which is not high on my list.

That's a big box, like the size of GK Mysteries etc.... I'm curious about the quality difference between the original Half-Life and Half-Life Source (remake with the Source engine, which is supposedly included in this collection). Box also includes the T-shirt, HL2 itself of course, HL2 Prima Guide, and quick reference card.

Not to take the spotlight off Rudy, but I had the good fortune to find this last week:

The box may have been opened, but the disc and guidebook are still sealed up together. So nice to feel that 90s shrink wrap intact.

Nice going! Do you have anything to play it on? I am not sure what would be involved with doing a ROM dump to play it in an emulator.

I think I still have mine that I bought when it originally came out with the rest of my console games. I really should dig it up and check.

Absolutely. Though it's currently buried in the closet. I have played the ROM in the past though through to the end. This will be interesting on the original hardware though :).

If I do still have it, I doubt I have the box. I don't recall the box being in the bin; just the game. But that was many, many years ago.

Well. Not so nice. I no longer have it. I am assuming during one of the moves; I had let someone use it and never got it back, before moving back to California. No idea who might have it. And if they did - they probably don't anymore!
