Yeah, Towers 2 isnt cheap. Telegames has them new in box, or did untill recently. It may say out of stock on the website, but email them and ask. Thats what two of us at Jaguar Sector 2 did, and we both were able to buy a game.
Its £85 or something, so its not cheap, but ive seen it more expensive used on Ebay the few times ive seen it come up for sale. Another interesting part is that Telegames seem to have the previous release AND the new, called "limited edition" (which prolly just means re-print edition from comparision) in stock. At least i got one not saying limited edition on the box, while the other guy did. you can read more about it in the telegames thread over at js2, in the main forum area.
As for the game itself. ive only confirmed that it worked yet, i havent played a single minute. But ive read that its a good if not spectacular western style rpg for the system, and that it can be quite challenging. Its the only game of its kind on the jaguar for sure, so i bought it rather than wait and loose out like i often do. I wanted to buy Samurai Spirits Z Special back at release for ~$360, but had to wait. Then about a year later i got a chance to buy it used but minty, at not much of a price rise, but had to pass on it. Today its upwards 900 dollars and well out of range for me..
As for bubble (or not even that) envelopes. I tend to ask this question: "How much is shipping for this item in a cardboard box well packaged to protect during shipping?". That usually gets the point across and the items do come well packaged in a box. Sometimes excessivly. The times i dont ask, and "box" isnt mentioned, it always arrives in a bubble envelope, or even just a grey plastic bag, usually from UK. So just try and remember to ask about a box and they would most likely ship in one with not too much of a price rise in shipping. That adapter thingy should fit in one of those $15-20 (international rate) flatrate boxes that are just perfect for one game (sega genesis, snes, jaguar size etc), if it was shipped from the US. I have gotten squished boxes before, so i try to make sure to ask for safe shipping before i buy or bid on an item on ebay. Or even a webshop or forum seller. Ive heard horror stories of Neo Geo AES and CD consoles being shipped in a box too big for it, with NO padding what so ever. Some sellers are just careless, for whatever reason.
