The fantasy of the eGPU and The Wolfe on Kickstarter

I have been using external GPU (eGPU) for years – my first installation is more than 4 years old – and I feel I have some expertise on the subject, especially on OS X. And then, I realize that the reality is widely fantasized by some people, and the success of a Kickstarter project for an external GPU (the Wolfe) shows that there actually is a problem.

Help needed : games for the Pippin

As you may have seen, I have got an Apple Pippin. But I do not own a lot of games, and I am seeking images (ISO) of american games. If you own a game for this console, I shall be interested.

I can either buy you the game (within reasonable limits) or ask you to do me a disk image from a computer, and I can provide a storage space. The purpose is not to spread the games, but only to test the console with programs in english rather than in Japanese.

Thank you in advance.
