@RyMondo Nahh, i'm pretty sure that's not it. One of the biggest problems with Atari is that so many games can easily look a like due to the extremely limmited earth shattering graphics. :p Anyways! It's so coming to the NL's Retro Forum, considering it really is all sunshine and rainbows in comparison to the negative doom and gloom vibe that's constantly going on in the Wii U forum. :p It's almost like Sony fans are always on patrol around there.

I hear you about the Wii U forum, that and I can say I am bored with talking about a system that doesn't exist out in the public yet. The Retro forum has the the laid back vibes of the NESified 80's! I think i got this now, it has to be Adventure!

Holy crap! I'm pretty sure that's it! :o :p It looks like you're being chased by a giant 4-bit neon Sea horse.lol Thanks for the find man. ;)
I will definitly be adding this to the list just in time for Halloween. The only thing I need now is a tape recording of crickets chirping to play when i'm gaming on my 2600 at night in the dark haha :p

Swagman on PSX. I had it when I was younger but seems I lost it. Doesn't seem nearly as good now as it did then but there's still some fun in it.

Well, since Nintendo Power is sadly going to meet it's Dr. 'Doom' this crazy Christmas December. :o ....

Actual online picture from the NP magazine i just bought :p

...I decided to hit up eBay on my PeeWee Bicycle in search for the earlier issue's of NP as in Volume 1-20 before prices become even more totaly extreme. Volume 1 which i want the most especially is out of my price range, since being the Mighty Master of mega mullets only pays so much. It goes for $100 +, so i did some more searching & cruisAloozin' and found an auction for Vol 7(89') where there's only 1 left going for around $100 'Buy it now' where instead I ended up lucking out and finding another that i won for $50 including Shipping during a 30 min-left auction. Yay me. B-)

The big bonus is that it covers Mega Man 2 and includes a Super Mario Bros 2 Tips and tricks Booklet, which are two of my favorite games of all time. I absolutely adore the original & bizzare claymation looking Dr.Wily on the front cover, especially in comparison to the lazy route NP has taken as of late with their 'take an official image and blow it up' routine, rinse repeat. The older issues were far more exciting because the artwork was always varied, weird and unpredictable, aside from the older magazines being miles more entertaining than the new, ouch!. I've got to say I don't remember reading this particular
issue, So it's going to feel completely fresh for me. I grew up reading a lot of the early 90'-93 NP issues with a few or so 89' issues, and stopped around the time the SNES took it's last breath. :p

Anyways! Vol 7 (1989') covers Mega Man 2 and includes the original SMB2 Tips and Tricks book! hehe. I couldn't resist! There goes a little chunk of my 3DS XL money hehe. What can I say, Retro comes first boils and brats! :D Here are some online photo's of the Vol7 that i just won. Sup!

It sounds like you haven't heard of Bubsy before? One of the most infamous characters of the great mascot craze of the early '90s. (aside from Awesome Possum)
I like the first game, but others don't because you die so much in that game it's a joke (and maybe it had to do with that it was a Sonic clone. While that was the closest you could get on the SNES, of course I imagine Genesis owners probably preferred the real thing.). Too bad its sequels got worse with Bubsy 3D for PS1 being known as one of the worst games ever.

@KingMike No, I had never heard of Bubsy before getting this game. I guess you learn something new everyday. Thanks for the overview.

Got a couple Konami SNES greats recently:

I played Sunset Riders in the arcades a few times and heard the SNES conversion is pretty good though the Nintendo censorship strikes again here. There just was not enough western games from this era.
Untitled

Batman Returns is a fun beat 'em up. Most of the time Batman video games are good and this no exception.
Untitled

Last but not least, Legend of the Mystical Ninja (the box is still in plastic). I remember renting this one as a kid and being being difficult. Looking forward to giving this one another crack. I do love the games with Ninja in the title!

Awesome purchases, Ryno! All 3 of those are games that have been on my "must buy" list for years now. And all complete in box too! Must have been a whopping purchase. My cousin actually use to own Sunset Riders back in the day and him, my brother, and I would all take turns playing multiplayer. Such good times. Don't know if he still has it but seeing as he gave me some of his old SNES titles awhile back and it wasn't one of them I wouldn't be surprised if he lost it or something.
Batman Returns and The Legend of the Mystical Ninja are both fantastically fun games too. Good old fashion beat'em up with Batman? YES!
