You even got the map to Scheherazade. Wasn't that a mail-in item (making it even rarer)? Or is it Faria that I'm thinking of (another game I'm glad I bought at a trough in its price roller-coaster)? (the collector's quandary: do you cut out a piece of the manual to get a map, or leave it in to keep the manual in mint condition.
Or I guess you cut it out and then look for a mint replacement manual. :D )

@Ogo: Oh, I will get Amagon someday. I'm just in no hurry because I am planning on that game to saty pretty cheap someday. Plus, I am secretly hoping for a NSMBW style multiplayer download Amagon HD Remix so you, KingMike, Tasuki, Waveboy and myself could all join up and take it on like Voltron.

@KingMike: Scheherazade came with the map originally and Fair had the mail in. As for my answer to the collector's quandary, I would choose 2 manuals. B-)

I got these 2 games together for $19 shipped. Clash at Demonhead complete usually goes for over $25.00, I could really care less about Big Nose though. I am debating on whether to sell it or not, what do you guys think?

But seriously, Clash At Demonhead might be one of the best NES games. Waveboy, I'm looking at you, you need to consider this one. I know ogo & KingMike agree with me.

I also just preordered Nightmare Busters for my SNES as well! I knew they originally sold out but checked again today and saw they are again taking preorders so I thought I better jump on it. This game looks awesome, to bad it is not supposed to come out until 2013 though! Who else has this preordered?

Not a bad idea. Not sure if you have a Wii with GCN components built in, but even then, it can be a pain to play GCN games on the Wii. Also, Odin Sphere is a really good game, but do you have a PS3? If so, you outta get it on there. The game's biggest flaw is its slow down, and the PS3 version reduces said slow down by quite a bit.

Order placed for a Robocco Wars Famicom cart. An obscure cutesy platformer/shooter created (but not published) by Taito. Figured I better buy it while most people have never heard of it. :)
Most of the game is pretty easy, but last I played it I recall the (last?) level really kicking my butt.

Bought these Japanese games although I can't read Japanese. They cost only 25€ so I had to get those (buying CIB English copy of Pokémon Gold alone is worth the same here). I played all of them today to see if they work and I don't have anything bad to say yet. I think some of these games aren't even available in English. I'm also glad to get Pokémon Gold and Dragon Quest 1 & 2 (gonna have hard time because of the language) and a Mystery Dungeon game (I love Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, I hope this one is as good).

Man, I've been practically taking a Vacation from the Retro/VC forums for over 2 months or so now and it's all because of my current
HDTV situation which has prevented me from gaming all together because of this stupid mega massive input lag ordeal i've been experiencing, not to mention i've been OCD'n and stressing out over it harder than a BattleToad getting an army of juicy zits on his tooshie to the point where i didn't even care to play my 3DS. :P

It's been over 2 months since I've actually sat down and played a game or watched a movie and i feel pretty damn miserable like there's some sort of void going on hahaha. My two big passions of the few or so ar e'retro gaming' and old school horror movies' which have been put on Hold. I feel like Jim Henson without his puppets! :p I'm down 2 two more HDTV's that apperantly rock the lowest input lag period, so it's either one of those 2 and 'then' i'll finally beable to Chill like the Ice Cream man.

Anyways! AMAGON(I shall beat thee' muhahaha), Back to the Future, Metroid, TMNT III: THe Manhatten Project and Kickle Cubicle are the only RETRO carts i need to master and beat to a Punk Bewster pulp! I've also made some more non videogame retro purchases as of late that will Shredder & shatter the neighbourhood! Which i'll post up in a bit sized bitty' B-)

@Ryno
Nightmare Busters looks pretty amazing graphically and right up my alley going by the screenshots, so it's a fan made game eh?....I'm a bit sketchy on those, I'll have to check out some YouTube videos which will ultimately or maybe make my decesion. And Clash at Demonheand is definitly one i'll most likely be chester cheeto-checkin' out. The BoxArt alone is just too awesome to pass up! and besides it's got the RynoVania Retro approval. B-) Ninja Crusaders box art looks like a bunch of ninja's hired by the Popsicle Pete, I love it! I wouldn't mind branching out of Gaiden Land and trying some other Ninja based NES games for once. There IS The Legend of Kage, which is possibly one of the worst NES experiences of my mullet hood. It's like Crouching Tiger hidden TERRIBLE. :p

Aw man, i'm just so pumped to finally get back on the RetroGoodness. The 2 1/2month no gaming thing felt like a big test in away. and it has confirmed that i will ALWAYS be a gamer. Retro and modern Nintendo like i've said before, and that's that. Playstation and Xbox don't apply in this VideoLand.

@Ogo79

Time to master Amagon I'll show you once in for all that i've got the Jelly Beans to Willy Wonka & Conquer that little unfair frustrating Tropical Jungle mind melting infurriating retro rompy' :p You've got some catching up to do my little Retro padawan. Go and beat Adventure Island, Gaiden I-III, Castlevania I-III, Ghost 'n Goblins and StarTropics and then we'll talk hehe. ;) Blaster Master I'm afraid has beaten me and it's going to stay that way i'm afraid. Can't be bothered to go through that one again!

As to the origin of Nightmare Busters...
short story: it's a canceled game from the original days of the SNES
long history: Nightmare Busters is a game made originally by a licensed developer called Arcade Zone (they also made a beat-em called Legend that has amazing graphics but sadly is almost unplayable). They also made a beat-em-up called Iron Commando (which should not be confused with another beat-em-up called Captain Commando) that also had nice graphics, and a little more playable. Apparently it was scheduled for Europe but never arrived, leaving it an obscure (and rare and expensive) Japanese exclusive.
Nightmare Busters was supposedly shown at Nintendo's Space World '94 trade show (and a screen seen in NP's report in March '95). If the people who made the Super Famicom bootleg should be believed (Japan does take their video game history pretty seriously), it was probably meant to be published by Nichibutsu/Nihon Bussan (they use both names interchangably) in early 1995. (listed as game #17 on the fake box. Nichibutsu's actual 17th SFC game was the block-pushing puzzle game Puzzle'n Desu, published April 14, 1995. So, at least the timeframe seems plausible.
Then around 2005, a prototype cart turned up on ebay. Someone bought it, the ROM eventually leaked out to the Internet.
We see the graphics are pretty good, and the game is kind of fun, but as I recall the game was challenging partly due to stiff control.
A few years later, Brandon Cobb of Super Fighter (who previously localized a few Chinese Mega Drive RPGs, as well as fixing up an unreleased official localization of a licensed Genesis RPG called Star Odyssey or Blue Almanac in Japan) found out about it and decided to get permission to legally reproduce it.
Unsure how much it will be changed for the Super Fighter version.

What games would you get from Super Fighter Team? I think I would order Beggar Prince, Legend of Wukong, and Star Odyssey if they were to release them again. How many games do you have? I cannot imagine ever being done, and that is just talking about 8 and 16 bit games!

Welcome back from your stay-away vacation Wavey. So you picked up those 6 retro Game Paks recently or have those been just lounging around the beach house soaking up the sea breeze?

So here’s my thoughts on Nightmare Busters. I may be repeating some of what KingMike said previously. So it was originally designed by Christophe Gayraud, who unfortunately passed away this year before he could see his game released, back in 1994 to be released for the SNES. A screenshot made it into Nintendo Power in 1995. So it’s not some homebrew or ROM hack. I like the story, it takes place in the world of dreams and you play as leprechauns battling the master of nightmares. That’s rich. Where you going to find a story like that nowadays? It has the cool big sprite arcade look of the late 80’s and early 90’s that are oh so Bananarama awesome with the quarter-munching challenge to match. The YouTube video of Nightmare Busters is from the prototype. Super Fighter Team has working on polishing the game for a couple of years now hence why it will not be released for like 3 years since it was announced. Super Fighter Team is also very particular about detail instead of the cheaper homebrew released or reusing old carts and they include the box (case for Genes games) and a color manual. So yeah, I am looking forward to getting 1 of the 1200 copies of a “new” Super Nintendo game in 2013!

As for Ninja games, I don’t think I could have too many of them ;) I am on the lookout for a complete copy of Shadow of the Ninja for a fair price and would love a copy of Hagane.

Well, glad you are back to VideoLand. You know we are like the Planeteers around here, when one is missing it is not the same! B-)
