Yeah, I can't get the A/C adaptor to plug in. I fear that something broke in the SNES slot or the thing that goes into it.

Perhaps, for the time being, I'll download what games I can.

Probably your best bet. If it's the SNES slot and something broke you should be able to see it, but if it's more internal like a bad cap, soldering, you're screwed and it's done. Perhaps it's also a busted ac adapter too and in that case it's easy just to take one off the NES or a Genesis if you have one and see if it lights it back up to life.

OK, turns out the plastic thing in the A/C socket broke off. We're going to adjust the pins and see if it works.

In Super Mario RPG, what is the best place to train? My party is rather weak right now. I need to prep myself for the Seaside boss.

Go wherever there's enemies. Forest Maze is a good place to go.

Faxanadu...that game was kind of...weird. It was alright, I suppose, but it wasn't remotely like what I expected. I assumed it would be more like Zelda II, but in fact it reminded me a lot of a rougher Ys III. It's certainly a game I'd recommend everyone investigate thoroughly before investing in, though I should note that it's pretty cheap these days.

Doesn't talk about games.

Faxanadu is fantastic I second the heads up on it, and yeah it's like a mix of Ys 3 and Zelda 2 in style with its own edge. If you find the game w/out a book do a google search as over 10 years ago I wrote up the book myself right down to the 2 page picture of the world tree redone in some shoddy ascii art no less as it is a little helpful. :)

If you want a consistently challenging but large scale fun pile of games that defined a bunch of genres, then yes you want the NES. It goes back to an era where the controls were stupid easy, but the challenges took some work and were rewarding doing so.

Well, if you're allergic to fun, cheap games, then yes. Otherwise you have no excuse to not pick up a $20 toaster and get as many $2 games as you can play.;)

Hey, my Sega Genesis just arrived a few days ago, along with a bunch of games. I'm thinking of getting a few more to round out my collections. Does anybody no of some good:

Top-Down adventure game that isn't Beyond Oasis?
Fighting game that isn't Mortal Kombat?
Turn-Based RPG that isn't a Phantasy Star or Shining game?
licensed game?
Run & Gun that isn't Gunstar Heroes?

All for the Sega Genesis and preferrably not on the VC.

And I suppose I could look for a good Side Scrolling adventure game, but I have the feeling that I already got one.

Fighting game - Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition, Primal Rage
Turn-based RPG - Might & Magic II
Licensed game - TMNT: Hyperstone Heist

I would also recommend Double Dragon 3: The Rosetta Stone. It's a direct port of the arcade game, so it's quite a bit different than Double Dragon III for the NES.

I'll also +1 for Faxanadu. I make sure to play through it at least once a year. The Guardian Legend is another game that I can't praise enough.

That was the sigle most helpful post I'd had in forever. Thanks a lot. I had already gotten the other genres worked out, so you pretty much answered the questions that still needed to be asked.:D
