Actual online picture from the NP magazine i just bought

...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.

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.

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! 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.

Excellent choice, my friend! SoulBlazer, as well as its two spiritual follow-ups, is a really fantastic game

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.

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!

ah man,I remember playing that on the snes and on the computer (at a friends house) that was a good game.

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!

Well, even if it's censored on the SNES, I heard the Genesis version only has two of the four characters and only half the levels. (while the SNES has them all) Anyone know if that's true?

I ordered Sumo Fighter for the Game Boy.
Well, it's a platformer, and it's made by KID (who made several NES games like the GI Joes, Burai Fighter and KickMaster). So I hope it's good.

Awhile ago, I ordered Batman: The Animated Series for Game Boy. Ordered it from some site called Gary Aldair or something like that. Never got it, dude didn't respond when requested for shipping update (just a repost of what I could already see by visiting the Google Wallet site.) Don't know if anyone's familiar if I can get Google to refund it, or am I out my $9?
(unfortunately, while these things don't happen often, it's why I'm sometimes thinking it's better to pay more on ebay where you can usually report these kind of scammers who take your money and never reply) (and why I bought a second copy from a more reputable ebay seller, which did come.)
