Is there enough good games to warrant purchasing a multitap, fixing up one of my broken SNES controllers, and possibly buying a 4th one for my SNES? I know Super bomberman 1&2 are great and I'm going to get Super Bomber man later, but are there more great games that utilize the multitap? I'd look up a list, but google doesn't work on this computer anymore for some reason and I'd like to have the opinions of people who actually played those games.

@Retro_on_theGo: Well the first one that comes to mind is Secret of Mana but you also have other great games like:

NBA Jam
NBA JAM TE
Saturday Night Slammasters

Most of the other games that make use of the multitap are the Madden games and other sports games like the NBA Live series, the FIFA games and the NHL games. I am not sure how big you are into sports games though.

Multitap you say? Look no further Than Super Bomber man. :D This was the ultimate SNES party game for my friends and i back in the day, Mario Kart aside. Yet I never played it's sequals 2 & 3, which I'm guessing are better. They definitly seem more varied, creative and colorful in the visual & graphics department.

If it's an undying urge, yes get it. But if you can wait then just wait until it's released.

Just for you.

I want to play it really bad, so I'll think I'll get it.

Highest I should go for Super Bomberman with Black and white Manual? I'd really rather not get it with the boring B/W manual, but so far it's the only affordable auction I can find. (Hopefully it stays affordable.)
Also if you know any site that sells Wild Guns for the SNES for a reasonable price I would really appreciate it. The auctions on ebay always go waaay to high for my wallet. :(

Anybody ever played this little wacko? Its sounds a little freakazoidial but I love how it has a Ectoplasmic Tabulator and any game with one of those needs some serious consideration for my retro collection.

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

It's your standard light-gun game. Supposedly it was the only game to support two Zappers.
At least the arcade version was excessively gory, especially for an '80s game.

I've never played a Four Swords Zelda game, and was thinking about Four Swords Adventures. I know you need a GBA link cable, which I don't own. How hard are they to find? Is this game worth getting? And should I just wait for the original Four Swords to arrive in eShop?

It's a pretty nasty game. You're pretty much just shooting and killing everything in sight. There's a level where you tortue people. I can't really enjoy it. I think it's an unlicensed NES game, but I could be wrong on that part.

So how long does it take on average to finish Super Metroid ?
And I mean, i feel like i need to play through Zelda ALTTP and Zelda OOT 3D before Skyward hits which I'm saving for Christmas Demember, same deal with Kirby's Return to Dreamland. And i want to play through Super Mario galaxy 2 before i hit up Super Mario Land 3D which is coming out in November. :p

Now that the killer summer heat is subsiding i can actually game again. :p
Anyways, Super Mertroid and Zelda ALTTP are the two key retro titles i need to experience soon. I'm just so OCD and i wan't everything to be perfect and right, so i can look back on a kick memory.lol But because of my need for everything to be perfect i always delay these 2 classics(for ex) haha.

Ok, I really can't decide on which Metroid to get. I'm stuck between Metroid II, Fusion, and Zero Mission. Metroid II is coming to eShop, and Fusion is an Ambassador game. Zero Mission could be an Ambassador game as well, and plus I own the original. Metroid II is the cheapest, followed by Fusion, and Zero Mission is the most expensive. I want a Metroid to play on my GBA, but want the best choice, since two are coming to eShop and the other could be on eShop and I own the original. What do you guys think?

haha that's awesome! :p It would be great if that one wounded up arriving on the Wii's VC this Halloween, same deal with Castlevania: Bloodlines especially! But nothing beats the real deal, i totaly should get a Genesis sometime off eBay. Can't count on Konami's pathetic recent support for the VC. :p

Anyways, I've got Ju-on:The Grudge(Wii) & Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles lined up for this Halloween. And I plan on picking up A Nightmare on Elm Street off eBay for the NES, and maybe going at it with Friday the 13th. But yup! Halloween is going to be epic! My radtastic 80's outfit, the spooky halloween music and decorations, the horror movies, the candy, the horror videogames and blah blah blah hehe. B-)

Anyways, ya...It's weird, i'm definitly a bit OCD when it comes to playing certain titles at a certain time. Horror games must be played at night in the dark....And I always play Castlevania with candles lit everywhere hahaha. I did the same thing for Rondo of Blood, III: Dracula's Curse and ReBirth.lol But, there are two times when i won't game period....And that's early in the morning....Or when i't's during the day when the weather is lowsy, rainy and cloudy or when the sun's going down during the evening and that dark bright orange light is bursting through the blinds.lol

I only game during the late morning early after noon when the beautiful sun is shining, or late at night(which i do the most), OR when it's snowy winter wonderland. B-)
