Turtles in time, nice! Don't forget to scrub off the Flea market poop.
Anyways, Super Double D was another SNES title that completely escaped me....How does it rank in comparison to DD and DDII?

i dunno... havent played it yet, only got it this morning and ive got a huge backlog of games i should at least boot up once.
Im usually not that keen on fighter games but you buy what you find and not necessarily what you want at a fleamarket

Don't forget to scrub off the Flea market poop

no worries! i always clean all my finds, inside and out, before they are placed in my vaults.

Those two carts were found together?
You could have a compatibility problem. TMNT is Japanese and Super Double Dragon is a PAL cart.

Cool I got one a year go, it is super cool handheld.

Anyway my latest and greatest handheld purchase is Atari's ill fated handheld the Atari Lynx (model 2) with 4 games.

By the way, I saw someone mention Castlevania: Dracula X going for $400 or something. I own a mint/near mint complete copy (North American version). Does that mean I get $400? [Edit: Actually, I just checked the box, and it has some wear on the right edge. So it's not mint. I guess it's very good/good. Manual and cart are near mint though!]

Maybe the PAL version (Vampire's Kiss)? I hear that one's significantly rarer than either of the NTSC versions.

I just order Kunio Collection 1 (complete?) for GBA for $20 and shipping, along with some other games.
I know it probably looks crappy compared to the FC originals, but since this is the one with Street Basket on it, probably can't complain given the price difference.

I remember hearing it was pretty bad, so I never picked it up. I'll have to see if I can grab it someday.

Thanks for the offer, but I wasn't looking to sell it. I was just joking around because I can't believe how much it's worth. I paid like $40 for it back in 2001 or so, and I thought that was a lot! I guess it's the most valuable game in my collection though.

Finally got around to getting Legend of Zelda: Dink's Awakening for the Galactic Gizmo GameBoy, but not the DX version. Who needs color anyways(I do! hehe, but i wasn't willing to pay the extra CosmoCash.) plus that silly & stupid color dungeon just makes the game 10x easier once you reach that smoking hot 8-bit Fairy and you receive either Link's mondo super sizzling dragon Defense, or his most rightous gladiator-fied wielding Swordicus.

Either way, the game basically makes you invincible like Mario gulping down a StarMan soda shake.

And....A 1988 California Raisen! WoAoAoAoAoA!!! Oh man, these little toys bring back a lot of memories! Kind of annoys the hell out of me that i got rid of all of my old toys from when i was kid. All of my TMNT, Ghostbusters, He-man, Bucky 'O Hare, GIJOE's ect ect have been turned into Toy-goop and sent off to planet Gorlax....I don't know what that is, but I'll never see those tiny bites of epic figurine nostalgia ever again. Kind of makes me wish my parents would of just taken them and locked them up in storage.

But meh, i can just buy them on eBay, which i've been doing as of late. Those He-Man figurines aren't cheap I'll tell you that. eek! And here's a little California Raisen Breakfast cereal raisin-Retro commercial goodness for ya! Damn I love Claymation...Especially when Pee Wee opens up his fridge in Peewee's playhouse haha..

Have you ever completed Links Awakening? I finally did this year. When I first had it on the GameBoy I don’t think I got past the dog food part of the trading sequence! I was royal Grade A stinker like Verminous Skumm from Captain Planet when it came to video games when I was a kid. Maybe that explains part of my desire to go back and play all these retro games?

Yeah I hear you about claymation, as for California Raisins did you know about this?

Guess you can get a copy of the unreleased protype for $50.00.

Oh man, that's insane! I thought you actually just purchased it CIB fresh in the packaging to show my little Cali Raisin toy up haha. And I actually just checked out some vid's online and although that's some of the most killer NES BoxArt around, the actual game on the other hand looks like cheap hammy NES crap which is suprising considering this is Capcom. lol And yup, I ended up finishing Link's Awakening DX on the 3DS's VC i think back in Aug. Great game, but dieing was never a problem or having any real consequences which was my only pet peeve with the game.

Anyways! Nowadays I HAVE to finish what i started, that's if i'm actually enjoying the game of course. In my modern gaming collection based on what I've played i still need to finish Kirby's Return to Dreamland which I'm actually restarting and Professor Layton and the curious village for the DS. And as awesome as Layton is, it's just too bloody time consuming(for me at least) because many of the puzzles are Layton-fied 'Standard and beyond' brain melting mathematical problems shrink wrapped in quirky Layton style. I'm sure i'll get back to that one some day.

The NEO GEO POCKET COLOR is mine, its finally in my possession.... at long last I can rest easy A really great handheld, it featured alot of great fighting titles as well as other great classic iterations such as Metal Slug and Sonic. The Screen is not backlit, but considering that it was still the 90's and many of its competitors(Gameboy included) Lacked one, it's perfectly fine with me. It could be worse though, it could eat up batteries like the Lynx and Gamegear or its screen would be as dark as the Game.com's. Thankfully, the screen is 10x better than the GBA phat and the battery life equates around 20 hours max. Now thats one heck of a handheld. Too bad it was Way underrated... it could have delivered more

Anyway, for the games my system came with the ever popular Gals Fighters, a Fighting game Off Course! that includes an all female roster of fighters duking it out in one of the system's best. One of the best Catfights I've ever played Just as good as DoA.

Next up, I've got Megaman Power Battles and Fighters a portable collection of the two Megaman Arcade games. My personal favorite of the bunch since it is basically a Boss Rush mode where you battle the Robot masters from MM1-7. Megaman enthusiasts, this is the essential Portable game.

Last(and least) is a Pachislot game, where I have yet to figure out what I am doing since everything is japanese. Thankfully, it came free with the system, becuase I would regret it if I do. I just need to learn Kanji maybe?

I love everything about the NGPC, it is the equivalent of the girl you always ignored in the past, but you later on grow closer to her as you get to know her better, plus she's easy to handle. Its that awesome, I'd say nab one if you get the chance, especially if you're into fighters because the system is loaded with them.

Also, The analog nub has yet to be matched by any portable

That was me saying that I saw a near mint truly complete copy of Dracula X with all the inserts; the Konami registration card, and Konami "last chance" poster and all go for nearly $330! If it's complete with everything and mint then yeah you can get over $300.
Oh, and nice buy on Belmont's Revenge. A Castlevania fan such as myself needs to pick that up someday!
