I already have Wario land II for the GB, but it's the Black & White original GB version which i picked up quite a while ago. I never knew WLII was released for the GBC, otherwise i would of got this instead. I still haven't played my GB copy yet, but this shall be a nice replacementO'! Color makes a world of a difference, but that's a Ninja Gaiden-No brainer!
Also, I'm a complete GameBoy 'Color' Noobie. I never had a GBC growing up, just the original Big bricked' Green screened Game Boy. Once the GBC was released in the later 90's i wasn't too into hand helds to be honest which i regret because it would of been fantastic to play Wario Land 2, 3 Zelda Link's awakening DX ect ect and the like on the go, and 'in' color. I think i saw Pokemon red or Blue(or yellow was it? Either way i despise the franchise hehe) at a friends house and that was pretty much it, other than seeing the commercials and the cool dudes at school playing around with them in their vast arroy of different killer vibrant colors. Grape Purple has definitly got to be my favorite of the bunch. BUT I use my GBA SP to play Gameboy games due to the front light at the moment, so the GBC is basically just there to have in my collection.
Oh, and i just orederd another Butten Key replacement kit for my 2nd SNES Controller so the buttons will feel just as good as they did back in the day when Pee Wee's Play House ruled the Funky air waves instead of feeling unresponsive & Super squishy like they do now. It's another massive reason and motivation to get my SNES hooked up so i can do some serious mondo Bad-Dudes damage.

Scored me a copy of this rare NES beast complete with poster. I remember seeing this in Nintendo Power back in the day and saving up for it when I was a kid. Silly me though I sold it. I recommend anyone who has never played this to give it a try. It has this whole reverse gravity mechanic that makes this NES game unique.
Another NES Obscure-like Classic I definitly need to check out! I never even heard of this one until i checked out the Angry 'Happy' Videogame Nerd's YouTube Video a couple or so years back. Looks pretty awesome! How much did you end up paying for it? Most of cost quite a Beebop bitty' considering it's CIB! I've heard that ever since the HVGN Metal Storm video reared it's head online the Metal Storm Price tag has rocketed up a bit.
Oh I've heard of the 3rd and it looks to the worst yet. Didn't they hire that little twerp with that massive bowl cut that starred in that craptastic looking Home Alone 3? Ya I know i could easily just check, but I couldn't care less. The original Never Ending Story is a million light years ahead of those 2 terrible sequals and most fantasy flicks in general. I swear, most fantasty movies peaked in 80s(The Labyrinth, The Dark Cystle ect ect....The same goes for the horror genre as well) and started to degrade in quality ever since.

Waveboy: Crazy how you find out years later that an updated version of a game is released, huh? Sometimes they are for the better made by Dr. Light and other times for the Wiley worst but in the case of adding color for a Gameboy game it is usually for the better. Speaking of Gameboy Color games, ever heard of Ryno (Rhino) Rumble?
Good to hear that you are getting your SNES setup in super shape! Do your NES controller buttons still feel "new"? I don't know what they did with the NES controller but they where made with Mach Rider magic because 20+ years they are still so "clicky."
As for Metalstorm, I got it for $59 shipped. A boxed copy hardly appears, let alone with a copy of the manual and poster insert. As soon as I saw it, I snagged it like I was fishing in *Mabe Village.[/strong] It is one of the games that I vividly remember saving for and buying with my own money and playing for the first time. I thought it was so cool. Yeah, Mac was saying that the HVGN is the reason for the price of the game to Rocketeer. I just watched that video in the past few months which helped me focus and get it together like Voltron and seek out a complete copy at a decent price.

Recently I imported Parodius Da! －Shinwa kara Owarai e－ for the Game Boy from Japan (my third import purchase from eBay after Soukoban for the Game Boy and TwinBee Portable for the PSP), which arrived yesterday; this is the first time I ever played a Parodius game, and I've got to say: it is awesome!! I know that the Game Boy version of the game was also released in Europe, but since it was developed in Japan, I wanted to experience the Japanese version; this is one of the craziest video game experiences I've ever had! Now I see what all the fuss is about; there's much absurdity throughout the game (visuals, enemies, bosses, sound) that it's hilarious! It's nice to choose between the four characters (Vic Viper, Octopus, TwinBee, Pentarou), and for a Game Boy game it's surprisingly challenging; I've made up my mind already, the game is fantastic!

The GBC version was a launch game for the GBC. I was kinda surprised Nintendo decided to update and re-release it within the same year as the original.Then I was surprised to find out Pocket Bomberman (another launch game) was actually a mono game in Japan, that was only released in Color for the US and EU. (though many would probably say it doesn't count as a real Bomberman game because it's side-view)

Got back into buying games recently, so I picked up Little Nemo and Power Blade. Nemo is pretty challenging. Power Blade is simply an awesome game. I haven't played it since I was a young child and it's exactly how I remember it being. Hopefully some more NES games will be coming my way in the near future.

So yesterday I went to 3D Games and bought a couple of SNES games:The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickey & Minnie and The Pagemaster
1,151. Posted: Sun 25th Mar 2012 20:52 BST
Nice buys there RetroLuma. I remember I had The Great Circus Mystery on GBA but I didnt like it as much as Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse. Not sure if you ever played that one but if you did I would like to hear what you though of The Great Circus Mystery compared to Magical Quest.

I haven't played Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse yet, Tasuki, but I have been curious about that game for years (I should seriously consider buying the SNES cart one day); but The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickey & Minnie really took me by surprise, as I found it extremely enjoyable; quickly became one of my favorites In other news, I'm glad I finally got a chance to play the video game adaptation of The Pagemaster, as this video game promo (3:42-4:48) that popped up on the VHS copy of the movie had me really interested when I was a kid (and as a teen); having played it now I can honestly say it's not bad! It's not exactly a work of Tolstoy; prior to having played it I figured it was gonna have a few issues, so I wasn't disappointed. The visuals are absolutely remarkable, for SNES standards (the Horror stages come to mind, with the translucent foreground and dark visuals, among others), plus the background music is very atmospheric; the controls are decent (but the jumping controls are absolutely slippery) and I feel it presented a nice amount of challenge! Honestly, I think it's a good video game adaptation of the eponymous Macaulay Culkin movie (which, looking back, I can understand why some may not like it, and I do still like it, even if it has its issues), imo

Ha! Here my latest retro purchase though I admit it's rather underwhelming. However, I would take just about any complete NES and SNES game for under $10.00. I actually did like this game though.

theres a new copy of nes muppets on ebay lol
1,156. Posted: Mon 26th Mar 2012 20:07 BST
Yikes, Muppets huh? That sounds horrible after reading someone's review. That would fall in the category of games I will pass on even for a complete copy under $10.00.
I should really get a copy of Silver Surfer though shown on the poster insert of Robin Hood.

I hear if you're going to get Silver Surfer, might as well get a copy of Muppets for double the self-punishment.

But it has one hell of an amazing sound track. I could get down and party to these galactic surfed out Chip beats with PeeWee & and the gang in the Playhouse any day of the week!
Anyways, interesting purchase there RynoVania.I never gave Robin Hood a shot back in the land of everything Hip, rad & Fantasia, but Peter Pan's Hook on the other hand.....Ya...That short lived and awful memory is best left forgotten. At least the movie was half decent. lol
