in celebration of the Hobbit movie coming in december, i ordered the hobbit for gamecube on amazon. i doubt NLife will get in the spirit of reviewing it, so i'll do it myself.

I remember that game. I had rented it from Blockbuster. When I was younger I used to think it had the most realistic visuals ever. I just explored everywhere, never really got to a specific destination. Good times!

i remember playing it with my great-great-great grandkids. we played it in my crawlspace, and i remember it was at this point when i decided to say santa wasn't real. good times!

Are you funkin' serious? $20 CIB? MM6 goes for about $40-45 CAD for just the cart itself on eBay.
Nice find Tasuki! Some goofball down at my friends locat Retro Videogame shop was selling Mega Man '8' for $45, when really it goes for about $10 on eBay. what a joke, he should be put in Jail with the Hamburgler for commiting such a deadly Cowabunga crime. :p

MM8 isn't one of my favorites in the franchise, but it's still more uplifting and enjoyable than that dreary, cold, lifeless and miserable MM10. :p

It's always far more exciting finding a random killer retro video game find in person than it is shopping on the 'playing safe' eBay. Zero exciitement to be found there, but at least what you want is always gauranteed. :p

@OldGamesGhostly

3 copies? I guess 3 Mega man 8's are better than one. :p
I don't blame you though, Astro man sounds like the ultimate Barber Tranny.lol

Literally, I went to Goodwill over the weekend. The only retro gaming thing they had was an old Dreamcast controller. >:0

Mega Man 8 would of been a lot better had they ditched Mega Man's annoying in game voice. If I here "power Shot!" one more time...Plus those akward dismal Cutscenes with the hilarious-bad Dr. Light voice acting seriously needed to go. lol And the soundtrack? What a complete departure from the mega man norm. It sounded like Japanese ambient Elevator Spa techno. I couldn't stand most of it....Especially the intro Stage theme and Frost Man's. But at the core, it's still a fun game. :p

you know whats funny? when i first popped that sucker in and i heard the voice and title screen music i actually liked it. even the power shot part. when ps1 came out i had a hard time accepting it because i was hunting for old style games and there werent many for it. i used to work in an electronics department back in the day. id scan through all the games. id see a ps1 and the games for it and couldnt help but stare at all the snes systems going for 30$. i tried dang near every ps1 game, as i could open whatever i wanted and play it back then. i accepted games like sotn, mega man 8, 40 winks and Medieval, thinking that was as old school as it was going to get. but i know where your coming from and im surprised i dont feel the same way

Its just a normal Goodwill store. It varies the retro goodness that comes in. Most of the time its Call of Duty games or EA sports games like Madden or some obscure games but once in awhile something good comes in. Goodwill does have a site too where you can bid on items like ebay and sometimes they have games available on it.

@Waveula: I know what you mean. With Goodwill and a few other thrift stores in my neighborhood along with a retro game store I rarely go shopping for retro games on eBay unless its something I want right now and I have exhausted all other options.

Purchased an original purple GBA for 10€. Got a message from my friend yesterday and he asked if I wanted to buy it otherwise he would've taken it to a flea market. I bought an SNES from the same guy about a year ago for a nice price. Not going to use this GBA too often as I have GBA SP already but it's nice to have in my collection.

Quite the find their Tasuki! I wont tell you how much I payed for my CIB Mega Man 6. :p I actually despise retro shopping in brick and mortar stores. All the games look like they were used as coasters and Frisbee's and you can pretty much forget about finding the manual and/or box especially at thrift stores like Goodwill. Stores that specialize in retro games charge way to much I feel. I would much rather compete in the ebay market.

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