Speaking of Sega-related news, after weeks of waiting, the RetroGen adaptor has finally arrived. Well, technically the adaptor isn't retro (since it was made, when, 2011-2012?) and it isn't made by Sega (but it is made by the wonderful company that crafted the Retro Duo system, Retro-Bit), but it does let you play retro Sega Genesis and MegaDrive titles on an SNES console (or a Retro Duo). I fired up my copy of Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse (which I was so eager to play since waiting for the adaptor), and it works! =D YAY!!! I can't believe I played a Genesis cartridge on a Nintendo system on my TV! =)

This is the best SEGATENDO DAY EVER!!!

...
Okay, I'll calm down now. As for the game: so far my impression on Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse is that it's good!

@ogo79 - the original rectangular one or the "bone"-shaped one?

@Scarhino89 - I guess so
Now that I have a RetroGen, I must compile a (not too big, not too small) list of Genesis and MegaDrive video games I'd like to buy and play in the near future!

A loose cart of Gilligan's Island for the NES from amazon (after losing an auction on ebay... causing the winner to have to pay more for theirs than I paid for mine ), and I also ordered an orphan Dragon Quest V SFC manual to go with my loose cart.

My last purchase was a little while ago but thought it was worth sharing here. Mario No Photopi for N64 (you may have seen it retweeted on the NL Twitter feed at one point). It's not really a game - more like dumbed-down image editing software. The game features a unique cartridge that allows you to insert a SmartMedia card (it also comes with a 2MB card - although the format is now, of course, archaic). A great collector piece - not so much to play!

So, it's not quite Mario Paint 64?
Did at least allow you to access Game Boy Camera photos? (maybe Transfer Pak + GB Camera)

It's much less advanced than Mario Paint 64. It's not compatible with the Transfer Pak either, although that's probably because the game wasn't developed by Nintendo.

@nemesis - I only have seven Super Famicom carts atm, I've started collecting them since the summer, and it is just awesome to import! Knights of the Round and The King of Dragons are fun, unique beat'em ups (I play them both on Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded on the PSP)

A couple of my SNES latest:

I got Final Fantasy III to go along with my recent purchases of Final Fantasy II and Chrono Trigger. These games just continue to only go up in value.

And a personal recommendation from OGO, some outRAGEous Kendo anime action! This one definitely brings the funk as Jo turns into a 70's super hero on her summer vacation!
