– According to Price Charting, Illusion of Gaia is actually pretty affordable, at least as compared to the usual surcharge for SNES RPGs. It’s $21.50 for the loose cart, and $49.99 for the box and manual – eerily close to retail price when it came out.
– The other games in the series? Not so cheap. Soul Blazer is now $54.81 for the cart, and $137.50 for the box and manual. Terranigma never came out in the U.S., so the ones that’ll work with your SNES are just reproductions. The Japanese copy is trending at about $74.99.
– Terra Earth, a cool site devoted to the Soul Blazer and Gaia games, has a neat message board thread about the translation issues prevalent in this one.
This week in Your Parents Basement, we are playing God as we level fields and destroy Satan! From 1991, we’re playing ActRaiser by Quintet and published by Enix for the SNES. The sweet baby boys are joined by special guest Mike Deeney – a fan of finer things in life, like ActRaiser.

– According to Price Charting, and as discussed on the show, ActRaiser has retained its value pretty well. The original cart goes for $28.50, with the box and manual pushing the price up to $68. The sequel, which is just a straight-up action platformer, goes for a similar price.
