"The Wild" was sort of relevant 1990-2007, which was probably the last time I stumbled upon Turbo on the shelf. In a post-collector world, we need to redefine the term to include any website that's not ebay, Amazon, craigslist, or Facebook.

Well right now, YAJ proxys are letting buyers know of shipping issues, so I'd say they're not a "thing" right now. Just one more notch on the bedpost for Covid.

I actually found some stuff at a local media shop at a decent price maybe, 6 months ago at this point?  They always price loose and complete stuff the same so if I find complete games it is normally a really good price, especially if it's Turbo or 16-bit in general. 

Got a Splatterhouse and a Devil's Crush and traded them to a friend for some other games I didn't have but wanted.
