I know nothing about the game but great and weird find OP, especially if it does really go for upwards of $150.
One of the cards is definitely Guan Yu; he's a famous Chinese general, and playable in every Dynasty Warriors game. The other kind of looks like Dian Wei (also in Dynasty Warriors), though I know he usually uses an axe in Dynasty Warriors, although that might be different in DW6. I just took a quick look, but the symbols on the corners and stuff look like they might be attributes for some sort of trading card game, so I assume these come from some trading card game in Japan. Either way, I highly doubt they pertain to the actual Railfan game. Hope this helps.
Thanks for the info on the cards. Makes me want to try Dynasty Warriors, i've never played any of those games.
That's a great find. What is the deal with this game? What do you do, drive a Brown Line train around?
Pretty much. There are a few other Japanese train lines that are playable. I've been learning how to play the game with help from the internet, and I have to say i'm really enjoying myself. I have no idea why they refuse to bring this game stateside, we've seen much more "nice" titles than this. Or maybe do a localized version? Chicago, LA, New York, Philladelphia, Boston. The cities that people have a lot of pride for. I guarentee they would sell, especially if they did region-exclusive cover art for each city.
When you first said Chicago, I was like, the band?
Nice find, the stars were aligned with you on this one. The few things I see online show it for $150 roughly and the high speed Taiwan one a bit less but still pricey.
Yeah, i'm still really excited to have it. It actually is a lot of fun now that i'm learning how to play it.
You do realize that the newer GS stickers don't take forever to peel off and you can eliminate all of the sticky residue by either using the newly peeled off sticker on the residue(sticking and peeling, sticking and peeling) or using a piece of clear packing tape and the same method, right?
Now if you were talking about those old EB Games yellow stickers(the lil square ones), those sumbitches won't even fully come off even if you soaked the entire case in hydrochloric acid.
Good find though. The GS stores by me would never make such an error, as they wouldn't even take my import Demon Souls a while back.
Yeah, they definitley are easier than they used to be. One problem I seem to have though isn't always the residue. I don't have long nails, but I always seem to make little nail dents when I try to take game stickers off. Between that and the possibility of residue, I've kind of given up lol.
