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

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

My last 2 buys where a Gameboy Color Lot and a Gamecube lot.
Gameboy color (boxed) and 11 boxed games amongst which Warioland, Super Mario, Donkey kong, Pokemon's (blue, yellow, and another i forgot).
And the gamecube lot sucked apart from 2 very rare zelda games!
now bidding on a NES boxed with zapper and an Atari 2600jr (1985 edition) with 14 boxed games!

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.

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

Dang, you guys are more harsh than Rocksteady's rough epidermis! Like Waveboy pointed out, Silver Surfer is worth purchasing alone for that track! It's an awesome song, but my gosh it is all over the place! I have never played it but read some reviews and sounds like a good challenge. Might have to bust out the NES Advantage with its magical "slow" button for that one if I ever feel the need to surf in silver.

Yeah, I may be one of the few people that actually likes Robin Hood. As for Hook, I saw the movie which was good. How could it not be with Robin Williams? As for the game, I never knew it existed and after reading a review I will continue to do so!
