Got Kirby Super Star for one hundred fiddy Club Nintendo coins! Wasn't long ago I had no Kirby games (unless counting Super Smash Bros.) and now I have four! :) Loved the Gourmet Race music here. The N64 Super Smash Bros. version sounds like it's based off of it!

@KingMike
I want Bloodlines (and Contra: Hard Corps) so badly, but 1. I can't afford to get an old Genesis, 2. I don't have a physical place to put it, and 3. I don't have any more power outlets or TV connections. :( So, I'm waiting on Konami's lazy butt to start supporting VC again and release it. :( (still can't believe they've never put NES Contra on VC, WTF)

Bought a memory card for my N64. Now I will start Pper Mario without fear, hurray. I also got Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure. Heard decent things about it so I thought it wouldn't be bad for $3.

Paper Mario doesn't support the Controller Pak (Memory Card).

That's right. Almost none of the first/second-party games use it.
(and if you count Nintendo-published games as first party, Star Wars: Racer used it, I think.)
I can only think of Mario Kart 64 using it. The Banjo games probably could've used it for Stop 'n Swap, but I guess Rare decided it was better to just drop the feature entirely after Nintendo told them they didn't like the cart-swapping idea. :P

Picked up a complete original NES, and by complete I mean with two controllers, the hookups and even an orange zapper (Truthfully I prefer the gray one) for 15 dollars from my local Goodwill. I am so excited now I can do the next best thing to actually jumping in a real Doc Brown Deloerean and going on a magical trip to my childhood B-). It works fine btw I ended up doing a complete run through of Megaman 3 and Ducktales last night.

Also picked up

Mega Drive version pictured but I got the SNES version.

As much as I dont like Ahhnuld now I just couldn't pass up this game. Its actually one of the better movie base games that you can get your hands on. This one has fond memories for me as well as this was the first game that I remember playing at home on the SNES that had actual blood in it :O. Not gray colored blood to make it "sweat" like an inferior port of MK but actual red colored blood. I got this from my local Goodwill as well for 3 dollars.

FFFFFFUUUUUU~
...Well, definitely don't want to risk the save battery dieting on me through a play through, I thought all N64 games supported it. Couldn't find anything saying otherwise. What a waste of 3 bucks then.

According to a Google search, Paper Mario uses a Flash memory save. So you won't have to worry about a battery dying. Just that you won't be writing the cart's millionth save. (which is still pretty unlikely. Even if it's only 10,000, that's still 100 people owning that copy and saving 100 times each, which sounds a little high-use.)

Which is perhaps better. Controller Paks do use batteries, so you would need to be able to change them. (an official Controller Pak has a soldered battery, a third-party one may not. I know I have one that doesn't. On the bright side, it's easier to change. On the downside, it's more likely to fall out and erase saves.)

Argh, my copy of SNK VS Capcom got canceled. :( Luckiy there was a second one available for $1 less that comes with a manual, so I ordered that now. It's from my state, too, so it should arrive on time.

@Tasuki: Glad to hear you finally got a NES and can start playing with power again! That Goodwill of yours is sounds like a piece of retro Nintendoland. I would be checking that place every other day if I was you!

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I check it whenever I have the extra money to spare. Today they had a model 1 Genesis with 2 controllers and hook ups for 15 dollars. :O. If didnt have a Genesis already I would have picked it up for sure but instead I passed it along to my friend.

Shinobi for Sega Game Gear (on my 3DS). It's like a mix of classic Ninja Gaiden and Mega Man!
