Ebay works exactly the same as every other website out there, all pre owned items should come with all imperfections pointed out, as if your not, you are entitled to your money back as, unless stated, it comes with everything that it would of been with it when brand new. Ive known even professional online stores offer pre owned items but dont show there conditions, but it isnt 100% assumed there come with everything, another reason why ebay has become so successful due to its flexibilty to change the auction.

:excited: I bought this game along with Legend of Oasis and Albert odyssey. I've away from games for a long time but this new discovery of SSF is making me spend my money on Saturn games... as I've already ordered 4 more Saturn rpg games. :eyebrow:

It never came :( The seller never sent it or replied to my messages/emails. I'm glad I wasn't using PayPal at that time.

Sorry to hear that, Alpha.

Still, I expect you'll find SW someday.

Yeah. One day when I have money to spend on things not really necessary :/ I mean, yes, I bought a ?400 guitar amp, but that was all birthday money.

Man, Daria. I thought you were long past the days where you abused your power.

Glad I was wrong.

I bought this game from The Tall Guy a few years ago. I wasn't able to get into it, the controls just didn't sit well in my head. The game looked cute and enjoyable, but I was simply not able to play it.

Traded it for Albert Odyssey, never regretted it.

So if you manage to master the controls, you'd probably like it.

I think so too.

Actually, the guy is a true Sega/Phantasy Star enthusiast I know from another gamer board, and he wanted to give me an extra bonus so along with Albert Odyssey. So he gave me a few CDs packed with roms from various old systems like Genesis and SNES, (including next to every single game made for Atari 2600)

Now. most classics I already had, but those helped me wrap up most of what I lacked.

All that for Shining Wisdom.


I was a happy person :D

really wish I never traded my Pal copy of Shining Wisdom for the NSTC version!

( was ignorant of the translation and tempted by the superior case/box art )

I've found a place that is selling Shining Wisdom for £28 ($42 american/$61 canadian).

I want to know, is this worth it?

Also, tell me what the game in essentials, is like.

Cheers.

got it at a convention. played it for a few hours and didn't think it was bad at all. might become worse though. the pal version is the best version though with a translation that actually makes sense, done by sega themselves.
