Does the C64 & Spectrum count? lol. Please try this game for a laugh if you can find it.

Street Hassle. :)

Speaking of C64, does anybody know what a good price to pay for one is, what all you should get besides the system and a game, and importantly, how to hook it up to a modern TV?

If anybody else out is on a budget, and wants a game that won't harm their wallet, try Star Control II. It's an open-ended space exploration game, very ambitious for the day (1992), with a large, relatively open world, lots of voice acting from the 3DO version (That actually isn't horrible), and multiple solutions to events.

Best of all, you can legally play the game for free, with a port to new OS's calle....

There is a 3DO version as well, oddly enough (An interesting 3DO game!). Too bad it never had a PS1 port, it might have reached a much larger audience.

I thought I'd share this. A instuctional video on how to effectively clean your game cartridges with just an eraser (and the tools needed to open your cartridge).

When I get my Retron 5, I'll definitely be trying this out.

I'll second that. Had this game on a Japanese Mega Drive. I never quite understood it because I was so young but the space combat was great. Reminds me a bit of Silent Service and Sid Meiers Pirates but with anti-matter rays.

Pirates! Gold on Mega Drive is great retro pirate game. It's a nicely polished version of the C64 game.

So this is my first time buying GBA/GB/GBA games so I was curious which version of "Donkey Kong Country" is better on handhelds: "Donkey Kong Country Game Boy Color" or "Donkey Kong Country Game Boy Advance"?

Who are you?

The GBA version is superior

@baba_944: Well I dont know about the GBC version but I know that the GBA version will be closer to the SNES game. I know alot of the SNES games were ported to the GBA and looked really good. As for the GBC version you can expect it to look like a Gameboy game more then a SNES game.

Lukie is usually pretty fair and there is always Amazon or EBay.

Sorry if this has already been answered (I can't face going through 30 pages of messages!). I'm looking for my next xbox title. I Want something involving flight. I've played Crimson Skies which was huge fun. Does anyone have any recommendations? Anything on similar lines to that game? Also is the xbox version of HeadHunter worth a look?

Thanks in advance!

Yager! That game sounds exactly like what you're looking for. If you're into rail shooters, Panzer Dragoon Orta is great too. The internet also led me to Jedi Starfighter, Blazing Angels, Fire Blade, Heroes of the Pacific, and Secret Weapons Over Normandy.

Yo people! I'm trying to decide which to buy, the N64 or the Retro Duo.
By the way, Retro Duo has no issues for my concern, so it's just NES & SNES vs N64. Thanks!

Well it all depends on what games you are most wanting to get/play. Other then that I would go with N64 but that's more of a personal choice cause how I feel about clone consoles. But in the end if that doesn't bother you which games are you more looking to play?

Well I like Starfox, Metroid, Mario, Zelda, F Zero, and a few other hardware-exclusives. Basically the more mature leaning Nintendo titles and some hardware show-offs, like Pilotwings. I also want to get a 64DD someday.

Well honestly that doesn't leave much since all those franchises are available on all three of those platforms. If you are in PAL area though I have read where alot of PAL cartridges have issues especially the popular ones like Super Metroid, DKC, Mario World, Mario All Stars and Mario Kart for example so you might want to stay clear of that.

As far as the N64 goes Mario Kart 64 is one of the best Mario Kart games around and Star Fox 64 is a great reboot of StarFox,

Again though it comes down to what games that are available on those systems that you want to play more. Also keep in mind that some of those games are available on other systems like the Wii, 3DS and Wii U VC so you can probably get them cheaper that way too if you have one of those systems.

Also not sure how much a Retro Duo runs but an N64 you can find cheap anywhere from $20 to 100 depending on what's included with it and where you go.

Well I'm NSTC-US so not PAL. Retro Duo goes for like $30 or so, and I want to play the games on their CONSOLES not downloaded and on a database. There's just a magic you can't fill playing it on it's system ya know? They're both more or less the same price. I just can't come down to a conclusion! Arrrrggg...

There's the fact that the Retro Duo has Metroid where N64 dosn't. But I want to get the 64DD someday so that keeps me repelling too...

My personal distaste for the N64 is probably known, but I recommend getting the Retro Duo. 1500+ games from almost every genre imaginable vs. <300 games with tons of gaps in major genres. The 64DD shouldn't be any sort of a factor at all. It's extremely expensive and rare, with only a handful of Japanese-only titles.
