Wave, how much scrilla do you have? Though not a true physical copy its got the looks that if Roxette were still around making 80’s hits they would be singing about it! :D Untitled

Anyway, to be honest I can only stand Atari for small chunks of Stay-Puff Marshmellow Man pie. The Flashback is good for just that and then I quickly realize I would rather play the NES or SNES!

Looks like Bloke gave you some great recommendations for the Atari. I would throw in Donkey Kong, Frogger, Space Invaders, Pac Man and Q-Bert. I also remember borrowing Raiders of the Lost Ark so I would like to get that one someday. Might not be any good though.

Hah! Mega Man 9 NES copies go for as much as $500(as rare as they are), I'd be better off blasting back in time with Bill Rizer and scoring a killer 10 minute date with Laura Branigan. :p And that's exactly why I want the Atari, a console to play in teeny little bite sized Belmont cookie crum pieces, because they don't seem to offer that much variety when it comes to....Well, everything. :D But like the commodre 64(atlhough it's more advanced) it offers such a distinct and authentic experience. MadAssueDude was right about one thing. When playing the Atar 2600....playing it at night, in the dark, on a wood panel retro tube TV, with crickets chirping in the background is a MUST :p

No, i don't consider it 'retro' because it's barely over 10 years old.....Too soon to be labeling it that, wait another 10 and then I'll agree with you.

Here is my latest retro purchase which I just received today, one of the last three games released for the NES in NA. I am slowly collecting the NES Mega Man's... :D I never played this one since I was long gone from the NES and onto the Super by 1994. I don't think Europe has ever had this game released even in a collection?

I wonder how long this one will take to appear on the VC since it was published by Nintendo in NA?

@Ryno

Funny stuff! considering MM6 was going to be my next Retro buy. I'm hoping it's more enjoyable than 5 was, which i feel is easily the weakest and most uninspired, bland and unchallenging Mega Muncher of the NES series. I'm not saying it's bad by any means, because it's not. it's actually a pretty decent experience, but in comparison to the previous 4(yup, even 4) it was definitly not in league, almost as if somebody else entirely got a hold of their Dirty Dr.Wily mits on the franchise. The soundtrack for the most part didn't exactly capture the feeling or atmopshere of the stages themselves, while instead it all came off rather Spacey for the most part....pretty mellow shnizzy' to be exact. :p

I really dig the aquatic chip tunes in this stage, better than Wave's in MM5 that's for sure.

As for MM6, Centaur man is all sorts of awesome! Pretty unique choice for a water based stage as well. B-) But ya, i too missed out on this one as well since it released later on the NES's life span. How much did you get it CIB for btw? B-) Even though I have some slight doubts about 6, i feel like it's going to best out 5 and 4, possibly even 3 for me...Here's hoping! But nothing will ever touch the greatness of 2 and 9, maybe one day if we ever see a damn MM11 rear it's inafune-less funkaclicious diabolicle 8-bit head. :p

@Waveboy&Mickeymac: I have had this debut dozens of times and really each person has a different definition of retro as can be seen by my thread here http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/retro/what_does_retro_mean... However the definition of retro here on The Nintendo Life boards from what a little dragon told me iirc is any non-current system or non-current gen can be discussed here. So yes even though PS2 is still in production it is considered a last gen console along with Gamecube and Xbox so they can be discussed here in the retro forums.

@Tasuki: thread not found, man.

Either way, the bottom line is that we don't really care whether or not anyone personally thinks something is 'retro enough' for the Retro section here. this isn't a voting area, it's a place to talk about video games. if it's not a current-gen system or game it's fair game for the 'retro' boards and will not be locked or deleted on the 'well it's not old enough' basis alone. If that's not good enough for you, ignore the comment or topic in question and move on to the next one.

if we could get back to discussing actual purchases made, that would be just ducky. thanks in advance, everyone~!

Rocket Knight Adventures is an absolute Genesis gem dude! I honestly never cared too much for Sonic when i first nabbed myself a Genesis....Super Mario World on the other hand completely blew me away and knocked my Thundercats socks off in amazement. :D while Sonic just left me bummed. I'm so glad i scored Castle of Illusion with the Genesis during it's release instead which is still to this day the system favorite of mine which i actually just picked up about a month ago in preperation for 'Power of Illusion' on the 3DS.

Anyways! When good old Rockey Knighty' hit the scene it was pretty damn impressive, and it boasted a killer score with easily one of the greatest Boss tunes to hit the Mega Drive.

Haven't played it's sequal Sparkster, but the original has this classical timeless visual style and distinct charm about it. It's pretty challenging too which is obviosuly a good thing! i'm sure you'll enjoy it. ;)Right now I'm extremely tempted to pull the Terminator triggger on one of the following PhantAbulous Retro goodies!
Mega Man 6, Castlevania Bloodlines and Contra Hardcorps.

Supposedly Terminator for Sega CD was pretty cool, but Terminator for Genesis is a different game.
I'm speaking of the Genesis game. It's insane. You only get one life to beat the entire game. While it's good that it's (I hear) only four levels. But you know if it's only four levels, those better be the hardest four levels ever. I tried it on Normal, and I don't even know how you're supposed to get past this hallway near the beginning of the level. You get grenades, but they're a completely inappropriate weapon for that because they arc and hit the ceiling and can't hit the enemies running at you before they hit you. So, I guess the only way to survive is take the hits and pray the game is kind and gives you health potions from the enemies (it probably won't)? (on easy, they give you a machine gun before that part so you actually have a good chance of surviving)

How's The Ooze? I wasn't sure if that was a game I'd enjoy. Same with Chakan.

@WaveKnight: MM6 complete cost me $71.00 shipped complete. It seems that $70.00 is the low end for a complete copy so I finally figured what the hey. Man, I am such a nerd though, I enjoy watching the market (ebay) for video games :P As for the three video games you want at the moment, Mega Man 6 cart only you would be looking to pay $20-25, Castlevania: Bloodlines cart only $10-15, and Contra: Hard Crops cart only $15-20.

That is funny you mentioned Sparkster. I was just checking that out today. I want that game for SNES but it sure is a pricey and rare for a complete one!

You sure we're shopping the same eBay? I see a lot of Biddings for under $20 here, while Castlevania Bloodline is typically in the $20-$30+ range, all cart only. There aren't enough cart-only Hard Corps left to tell the average price right now, though.

Castlevania: Bloodlines must've risen lately. I heard that game was pretty common, so much that someone said Toys 'R Us was still swamped with (cardboard box) new copies as late as 2000.
Personally, I got mine a couple years ago for under $10, though that was cart only and in pretty crappy condition (dried sticker residue all over the label). Still plays fine, though. I recall passing up the game for $50 NIB (ebay BIN price) at the time.
