Bought Mega Man 2,3, and 4. Missing 1, 5, and 6 for NES. I go to the flea market and buy alot of stuff people dont know what they are selling such as a mini SNES with Mario All-Stars, Zelda, Mario World, and turtles in Time then sell them back for profit usually, but I kept the Mega Man games.

Very nice the Megaman series was always one of the best series the NES had. Those right there are probably the best 3.

They are the best 3, but having all 6 of them is awesome.

Thats why you get Mega Man Anniversary Collection, to get all of them. I picked that up for PS2 for $10 a couple years ago. I like mega man 6 better than 4 though.

I just went to amazon and ordered Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge, just because it looked good, and Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters. To Strengthen my current GB collectoin, my friend may give me his Donkey Kong and Super Mario Bros DX to me.

Sweet! For me, that game is pretty hard to find!

Megaman Collection if you have a PS2 get it, otherwise don't if you are a player of the originals as the Capcom brain trust of idiocy decided to swap the B/A button functions of the NES games. Trust me, it gets grating after that 10th time you walk off into a pit with your gun firing off a single round. They were just so nice not even giving a button config option and yet making the PS2 game have the right button layout.

Either that or get the Xbox version if you have an Xbox that one had a button mapping option in the options mode. It does get annoying on the GC but after awhile you get use to it and it just feels natural.

Most recently I picked up a original transparent gameboy and 7 games at a garage sale for $5.

Ugh damn them. The xbox one you could remap?! What the hell was Capcom's problem? Sheesh.

I guess it doesn't surprise me considering how long they've given Nintendo owners the wash-rinse-repeat cycle of loves-lies-abuse. N64 they shafted then come in at the end with fake promises to support more they didn't. They apologized again on the GC promising a Capcom 5, which we got 1 1/2 as RE4 they really went over the line with 2 weeks before release giving howling PS2 fanboys a reason not to buy a Cube with the 'definitive version of RE4' with added weapons and Ada as playable -- then cancelling the other 3 promised titles. Capcom seems to love to act like a friend when it's suiting to them, then they earn some trust with a game or two, and then they pull out the knife set and start throwing and slicing generation after generation. Personally I don't buy from them anymore unless it's used as I can't fund that kind of practices at all on any system, it's not a Nintendo only boycott.

Uhh brooks is dead wrong just so you know. The NES, any of them even the top loader late in life all came with the A/V mono cable. You can get a cheapo replacement over at Radio Shack for like $5 +/- so you should be set. If it powers on now you're good, if it doesn't flicker the red light with a game in even better. If it gets wonkey, philps head screwdriver, paper towels, a few q-tips, and some 91% isopropyl alcohol rubdown on especially the pin connector which you can unscrew from the board. Check all connections even to the pads, make them firm, reassemble and give it a go.

Actually you aren't quite right yourself. The top loader was RF only. That is the version I use, which is why I wasn't sure if the original NES came with the cables or not.

Uhh it wasn't I had a top loader. It was the SNES that had the lame RF only, and I never did quite get that.

I think you could mod it to use the audio/video cables but I can assure you the top loader was RF only. I just researched it last night and even looked at scans of the original manual online and it is RF only. I will find the link. I guess I could also go through my closet and look at the back of it as well.

EDIT: Here is where I found the manual scans for the NES top loader. Unless you know something I don't, it was clearly meant to be RF only. http://www.nesplayer.com/features/top%20loader/index.htm

The Terminator for the Megadrive.

This game is odd (1 life, 4 levels, complete in 20 mins...) but along with Alien 3, I really like the atmosphere Probe Software managed to create on 16-bit hardware.
