PAL Hercules... you lucky bastard Smiley

Crappy game, but also hard to find. Oh and I plan to add my updated list of unreleased N64 games by the end of the week, I've been browsing stacks of mags the past few days.

Thanks, hercules is a real late release jan 2001 + the fact that the game is from titus (famous for its small number releases)makes it  hard to find.

Cheesy Funny to see that you work the same way i do.
For my n64 PAL list (that is complete on paper but ..i have a lot of work left with the computer file adding pictures etc.)

My research has been mostly done by spitting trew old n64 mags. (i have a complete offical U.K. nintendo magazine collection from 1993 till dec 2001 Smiley
+ a lot of dutch n64 magazines.
I have been trew them all and collected all the info.

After that i searched on the internet AND i visited and talked to toy and game stores.

would love to see your list of unreleased n64 to compair it to mine Wink
If you need some help or pictures just ask maybe i can help.

I'll see what I can do about posting the list tonight, I think I've got most stuff covered by now. I've actually also planned a list explaining names changes during development, some games like Aidyn Chronicles had a few name changes before reaching the final and others like Turrican 64 which became Thornado due to a disagreement with the owners of Turrican. It was then put on hold and later converted to a Gamecube project before eventually getting canned after some 3 years into development.

Take your time Martin,my list is planned for early december,yep im a perfectionist Roll Eyes

Yes the n64 is a great system to collect for (although most people see it as nintendo's weakest system Cry

collection + points for me

- the last (nintendo) console that used carts
-cheap to collect for
-Its possible to get a complete PAL set (unlike nes Sad )
-collecting is easy if you go for carts BUT cib is a different story and the challenge is there

AND the cancelled/transfered game stories are great and incredible Grin
unheared off

The boys of rare (wtf happend to you rare?)are king with KAMEO .
Announced at almost the same time as perfect dark for the n64 the game got released for the xbox360 Lips Sealed OMG 

Eternal darkness is also a well know game for the n64 that got transfered... to the gamecube Cheesy 1 generation later instead of 2.
The game looked better on the gamecube but i feel that the game better fitted the n64 console.

These are 2 of the most famous canned/transfered n64 games.
But my personal favorite canned tittle is the smurfs im a infogrames fan Smiley

PS : funny btw that you mentioned hercules and not snowboard kids 2 (australia only and 1 of the most rare n64 games)

Hercules and Snowboard Kids 2 (PAL) are both on my wanted list, they have to be CIB though...

I settled with a US copy of snowboard kids 2 way back and regretted it ever since.

When i had put my mind to a cib PAL n64 set i did something that most collectors would never do..

I started with the top dogs.. the hardest to get first.
first off where the 5 pal australian only games (you can see them in line on the picture)

Snowboardkids 2 was funny,i wanted it bad and i was hypped when a cib came on australian ebay.
I was first to bid and made a typo on my second bid  1K instead off 100 Shocked  off course i was not outbid Grin and won it . I Think i paid about 250 euro at the end including shipping.

Hercules i got cib for 15 euro on dutch internet sites (
[/color] i can get you a nice copy with manual for 10 euro)[color=#ffffff]

If your interested martin? maybe you can find a box later?

I saw hercules cib on ebay UK for a real high amount 200 euro plus some time back didn't know if it sold.

most people think that paper mario and mario party 3 are rare because of late release.

But the truth is that games like rakugakids ,rush 2049 and rat attack are much rarer.
Why? small release numbers Wink
The current gen (xbox360,wii.ps3)has no small releases anymore by small companies (unlike n64)

[color=#ffff00][/color]
BTW can anybody confirm (by picture Cheesy would be a miracle)that battlezone rise of the blackdogs excists as pal version?
I have searched about a year now for the pal version and begin to doubt it does excists Huh

I liked the first snowboard kids game a lot, it's most definately one of my favourite N64 games, the sequel however was alright but not that great really... but I do wonder why Atlus made it aussie only.

I managed to get a CIB Rakuga Kids PAL a while back in pretty decent condition... I'm currently searching for Rat Attack as well.

Once I have Rat Attack, Hercules and Snowboard Kids 2 my PAL collection will have passed all the hard to find titles. yay Smiley
