I just bought Little Nemo (NES) for $5.49 at a local pawn shop. :D

I picked this game up recently, and almost threw it out the window the other day. That game is brutally tough.

yes it is tough, but if yer going to throw it out the window i wouldnt mind owning two copies :)

Little Nemo is a Demon of a challenge. I could never beat that one growing up....I think i made it to some train based/toy stage and called it quits. Yes, I shall have my Retro *Revenge on this one as well someday. B-) But for some odd reason i just don't feel that tempted to get it. :p Solid game no doubt, but it was one of the hardest and most irritating NES experiences of my child hood. Stage 1's track(while memorable) just bugs the hell out of me! lol

@Wavey:

I am surprised you never got your slick fins on Double Dragon II! It takes some getting used to with its unusual button configuration opposed to the standard A equals punch and B equals kick. Some people prefer this method after they get used to it though. I have never finished Double Dragon though I hope to someday! Your Christmas Double D experience sounds awesome indeed, the only thing missing was Flurry from Super Mario Bros. 2!

Nice purchases! Metroid NES is a good one and maybe it will give you the Kraid Karate Kid kick you need to get finally get around to the phenomenal Super Metroid. I much more enjoy the original over the remake Zero Mission. I love the Metroid soundtrack; Kraid’s Lair theme has one of the biggest Smell-O-Vision nostalgia mind warp’s back to the time of CRT’s and Pepsi Free’s throughout the entire NES music library for me.

I never played Castle if Illusion though I remember it did look pretty sweet. I think maybe one of my friends had a Genesis, the rest of us kids were Nintendo. So you are getting prepared for the upcoming Power of Illusion? That is another #DS game I guess I will be missing out on. Surprised it took someone so long to make another Illusion game.

Hope that remote gets your TV matched up with the Videoland color spectrum which is often imitated but never duplicated unless by one who has been lucky enough to visit!

Well, I decided to order Castle of Illusion. $11 shipped for a complete Mega Drive version. Not sure which region, but I'm guessing that since it's an older game, any region should work fine on a Genesis? (I think PAL MD games are the shape, and according to ROM lists, it's identical to US.
And if it's Japanese, should work fine using a Game Genie.
Or possibly Canadian, I do remember hearing some were inconsistently labeled. Was it MD cart and Gen case?)

Genesis carts work fine on a Megadrive so a Genesis should have no problems with Megadrive games either.

Superstar Saga came yesterday. I only got to play for about five minutes when I had to go to an appointment, as I had the worst cough yesterday. When I got back, I unplugged my SP from its charger, and turned it on. It turned off immediately (and before I left, it had roughly 1/3 of the battery left) and wouldn't turn back on... It played fine on my old DS Lite, and it was great, but it's too bad my GBA SP is down and out for now. I didn't even get to play FF 1 +2 which I ordered last week on it. >_>

Last year, I got a Spice Orange Game Boy Player. I didn't even know it was released in North America (I thought all NA GBP were black), but it must be NA because it does have a FCC warning sticker on it (obviously, other regions would have a different regulations warning).

A guy is selling that at my local flea market. I want to pick it up but...is it region locked? Will a Japanese console work on an American TV/outlet?

Yes, the GameCube and all Nintendo home consoles are region-locked.
(NES has regions NTSC and two PAL regions, SNES and N64: NTSC/PAL lockout chip and NA/JP lockout is based only on the cart shape. GC and Wii use a separate lockout for each region.)
As for portables, all Game Boy systems are region-free, the DS and DSLite are region-free, DSi is region-locked so any original DS games with DSi enhancement will be region-locked when played on a DSi or 3DS.

to answer your question: a Japanese NTSC Gamecube will work with a USA NTSC TV but it will only run Japanese games. There are ways to unlock the region lock but you really should only buy a Japanese console if you have Japanese games you want to play or for collecting / display purposes.

Can't understand Japanese othe than a few words do no point in owning a Japanese console for me.

Just made 2 new purchases today! Both for $5. First up:

I've never played it, but for only 5 bucks I though eh what the heck.
Also got the classic:

Not a huge fan of it, but I never played it so I thought it'd be fine for 5 bucks.
Nothing amazing but fun games nonetheless.
