Definately one of my all-time favorite Zelda games, at least handheld console-wise.

This Mastro's gone electric! B-) :p
How many hours did it take you to complete this most awesome sequal in the retro Zelda franchise?
I think i plunked in 24 hours? Hopefully you didn't hit up those secret Color dungeons and got either the Offense or Deffense upgrade from that 8-bit babeolicious Fairy which both practically make you feel indestructible. lol I've mentioned this several times before and while LA is an amazing game no doubt, i was still unsatisfyed and dissapointed towards the end of the game because at that point you had too many hearts....Being quick on your toes, using your shield and manouvering/attacking/deflecting enemies and their attacks didn't seem important at all during that point. I was being careless and plowing through the enemies becaues i had an arsenal of hearts(I could afford to take several hits) and it made the game feel sloppy at that point and too easy as far as enemie battles go.

The only peeve i really have, otherwise a brilliant unforgettable retro-portable jounrey it tis! B-)
Legend of Zelda, Zelda II Link's Adventure and Zelda: LA DX are my nostalgia zelda babies. I'm not hippity to the hip with these 3D Zelda games(hated Wind Waker) Yet Skyward Sword looking amazing but it seems like a massive adventure to get into. A Link the Past shall be the next Radical trip to Hyrule I venture into B-)

man, i realy need to play the zelda 2d games sometime (never played lttp and the others), links awakening sounds amazing.
Maybe I should grab the snes of my brother (if he allows it :P) along with his copy of ALTTP.

Currently replaying through castlevania circle of the moon (GBA, after 10 years) and loving every second of it. Almost finished it, I am at the last boss. Damn, 2D gaming back then was godly, sooooo addicting.

For some reason maybe its due to all the Castlevania 3DS news I have had a bad case of vampire fever and no I dont mean sissy preppy twilight tweeny vampires either. So I decided to give Bloodlines a crack (yes I am aware of the pun). I have to say this is easily in the Castlevania top five. After playing this game I can say if you are a Castlevania fan and haven't played this one then you need to get yourself a Genesis and pick up this one. Its a shame this one probably wont see the light of day (or is it the dark of night) of the Wii VC which I dont understand. They can bring the NES Castlevanias, the SNES Castlevania, and heck even the Tubrografx one but not the Genesis one? Ok I think I am done with my rant.

But yes defiantly worth having a Genesis. Now I am going on to the direct sequel

as soon as I find a copy.

I just finished the explosive Metal Slug Advance! That game is just plain fun and has some really challenging boss battles as well. I love the graphics and sound but it is a little short. I prefer this over Gunstar Super Heroes personally.

Do handhelds count? I just beat Drill Dozer awhile back. Really charming overlooked game. The rumble feature was awesome and totally made me forget I was playing a game for awhile. :D

In an attempt to score a wise man once said, “Friends call me Nova, as in Casanova.” What does that quote from Oz in American Pie have to do with Power Blade for the NES? Well, not much other than the fact you control a character named Nova, master of the ancient Power Blade, through 7 sectors and try to rid New Earth’s computer virus! Sounds awesome right? Well, this game most definitely is! This games difficulty is way low compared to other NES games so if you are looking for a game to cruise through this should be the one. It is often compared to being a clone of Mega Man though I thought it was unique, enough, to stand on its own with its style. This music is off the charts as every tune is crazy catchy. You will be humming along in no time while you whip your boomerang(s) like you were Captain Boomerang himself taking out all sorts of aliens and robots. I would recommend Power Blade to any NES fan even though overall it may be a little too simplistic and easy. Just remember to have your 80’s shades on; if you are going to save the Earth you might as well look dang good doing it!

After nearly 20 years of owning it, FINALLY got gold on 150CC Special Cup! :D Several times over the past few days, have almost forsaken the game for a few more years, but stuck to it out of respect for the upcoming 20th anniversary. Annoying as BLEEP! I've sounded more like my naughty idols Panty & Stocking (FAAACK!!!) than I have my sweet/innocent idol Fluttershy lately. :P In other Mario Karts, your main "rivals" tend to beat each other and help you out points-wise. In SMK, you have ONE rival who ALWAYS gets second place and is snapping at your tail however well you drive.

Anyway, now one of my gaming monkeys is off my back and I can settle for leisurely 50CC races for relaxation now (after I get over my burnout). :P Now, for that FF II Pink Tail and beating Tyson...

Also beat Kid Icarus: Of Myths & Monsters, which may not really count here in this thread, being a recent 3DS VC release. Great ending MUSIC (that original KI fans will recognize :) ), but sucky ending itself. No wonder Pit disappeared completely until Brawl.

Just beat Dragon Warrior I for the GBC, on the pack known as Dragon Warrior I & II. It was a fun little game. I basically already have the game memorized, though, except for the dungeon layouts, so that had a lot to do with it. My first few tries with this game was not enjoyable at all, as I found that the game relies too heavily on obscurity. There were a few things that I found that if I hadn't looked up a guide, I never would've figured out. The cursed items, the D-Scale, the Castle Basement (heck, I simply stumbled upon that), and other such things. Maybe there were some NPCs I didn't talk to? Not sure, I thought I talked to them all.

Anyways, the game certainly has a lot of charm, a simple combat system, surprisingly little grinding due to the rebalancing of the GBC version, and a world that's fun to explore. All in all, it was a good game, and I look forward to playing Dragon Warrior II now.

Dude, 2 months? Let me guess, That little evil quick bugger QUICK MAN gave you heaps of trouble? :D The frustration for me comes in to play when you're up against that flying dragon and weird Robot computer boss in WIly's Castle. As much as I LOVE MM2 and as great and memorable as most of the Bosses were in WIly's Castle, Wily's castle from a stage design perspective was pretty lousy....Possibly the worst in the entire classic series. :p I always quit playing as soon as i get to it.

Music is phenominal though. Only Megaman 9's Willy Castle music has matched it.

Ya I agree. too bad Wily Stage 1 didn't compliment the music, the stage was so unappealing and nasty looking. You get those amazing up beat epic tunes and you're stuck in some ugly dismal looking dump. :p I felt that MM1's Castle-like area completely destroyed 2's on every level bosses aside. I guess i prefered the brighter more vibrant orange and blue color scheme and the unique way you re-fought the bosses instead of the typical 'pick a robot master room' of every single Mega Man afterwards. I found the stages themselves more fun as well.

Was never a fan of 4's Wily and Dr. Cossak castles either. They were pretty bland-ish.

Yep, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is amazing @WaveBoy. In fact, it's easily become my second all-time favorite Zelda experience in existence. You're also correct about it being a lengthy journey, but it's definitely well worth the effort my friend. I think you're going to absolutely adore the art direction. Bright pastel colors and the character designs have to be the best in the entire series. In my opinion, Skywards Sword's water color impressionist art style envelopes the The Legend of Zelda series with perfection.

I know it's not going to happen anytime soon, but I was really hoping to experience The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on my 3DS. I don't know why, but I think A Link to the Past would play like a charm on the 3DS. I'll most likely just end up downloading ALttP on the Wii VC. I can have hopes and dreams though, right?

I've just begun playing The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX on the 3DS VC. My game is currently saved in the very first room of Key Cavern. I like to save at the very beginning of dungeons/temples, so I have something of interest to bring me back. Tackle dungeon/temple at hand, locate next dungeon/temple and save. That's the play method I find myself using, while playing Zelda games.

Just finished this last night. I loved everything about this game, truly a classic. I don't care what anyone says, this is one of the best Mario games. The atmosphere, the music, the personality, its all awesome. Not to mention playing this was a blast, or should I say an absolute "splash." :D

I believe in make believe~

Oh man, I almost threw my Retro Duo Portable out the window with Clash at Demonhead after the (spolier) bomb went off at the end because I didn't line up the medallions correctly (end of spolier). For those who have completed this one, does that still count as beating it? :P
