  • Quickly tested out Sparkster and it seems like an awesome opossum game! I will probably Rocket Knight this one up to the front of Ryno's retro queue.

  • I don't know what it is about arcade style beat 'em ups and hack 'n slash's but I just cant, just cant, just cant get enough like Natural Selection especially when it comes to Capcom's classics!

If you don't know the jam, here's some Natural Selection for ya:

@Ogster: Thanks for reminding me about the Taito Legends collections.. I definitely want those! I also want Capcom Collection, especially 2, but I still like the individual SNES ports as well. I wish one of the collection's had Cadillacs and Dinosaurs.

Does anybody else find that the two characters crusin' on the left look like a Medieval Rocksteady and a she-Turtle? :p Speaking of the PS2, i'm going to get one eventually. It's really weezin' on my grindage and irritating me to no end that i still haven't experienced Silent Hill 2(which i actually own), SH3, SH4: The Room, Klonoa 2, Contra Shattered Soldier, Mega Man X7, MMX8 and that underwhelming Parapa the Rappa Sequal. XD

@RynoRadical

I've never played Sparkster, but I owned the Genesis original. It had such a timeless classical animated look to it with one phenomenal soundtrack to match. Fantastic game and beats the Coka Cola out of Sonic the Lamehog!B-) I'm suprised that it hasn't been released on the Wii's VC, and i won't be getting it on cart seeing as how i'm thinking of getting rid of my Genesis....I just don't like owning it for some odd ball reason regardless of the classics.
The muffled hell raising synthasized gargling SFX, the weak limmited color pallette for most of the games and the bulky loose-ish feeling oversized buttons is a tiny bit off putting. Like you said, the quality just isn't quite there. Contra Hard Corps is still more Intense, fun and Challenging than Contra III though. ;) Bloodlines was pretty solid as well, but not up SCIV standards...Everytime i listen to SCIV's score i'm just flabber gasted at how
truly amazing it is.

Aside from my 2nd TMNT Genghis frog figure(2 frogs are better than one!lol) you'll see one of my favorite episodes of TMNT. A VHS tape of 'Case of the Killer Pizza's...It's definitly one of the more bizzare and interesting episodes in the franchise from Season 2 that definitly stands out! Too bad they never made any action figures based on the yellow Pizza Crazed' creatures(Or 'Chunky Cheese Pizza Monsters' as they're called in Turtles in Time) on the cover which is a complete oddity considering the rest of the toy roster after Series 3 consisted of so many random characters that were never even in the show to begin with. :p at least they made it into TMNT II: Back from the Sewers for the Game Boy as a Mini Boss and most importantly in Turtles in Time. As far as obscure madeup TMNT figures go, 'Pizza Face' however definitly desserved to make it into the cartoon series!

One of my 'older' & extremely rare retro buys that i made several months ago...a SMB3 Skyland '1990' McDonalds happy Meal box. You know you wanna throw your McDonalds cheeseburgers and fries into that baby and relive old times! :p

I used to love that episode as a kid, too bad I don't remember it too well. Still have some of them along with other vhs tapes like Extreme Dinosaurs, dino riders, and Land Before time (anyone see a pattern here?).

A lot of people don't get why someone would keep things that your "too old for" despite those things being worth way more in sentimental value than if you got rid of them. So its ok to spend thousands trying to make yourself look younger but its silly and childish to do things that make you feel younger, like enjoying the things you enjoyed growing up or going on nostalgia trips?

So much going on here in these two paragraphs I feel like I am watching the Take on Me by A-Ha. So you are thinking about selling your Genesis? I can understand where you are coming from as I have barely touched my Genesis since I got one. For me I can meet all my retro needs with the NES and SNES. Did you ever get an Atari? You may feel the same way about the Atari as you do with the Genesis.
Your PS3 is not backwards compatible though? Mine is and I thought I would get around to the SiIent Hill games by now but I have such a limited time I doubt I ever will. I do want to give the preivously mentioned collections and Mega Man X collection. You getting a PS2 would be like Shredder giving up taking over the world and working at a pizza shop owned by the Turtles. :P

Anyway, now that you do mention it I do so a Medieval Rocksteady and a she-Turtle in that picture! Haha...

Love the pictures from inside the Waveshack. Is it true that Folks linin' up outside just to get down? Also,what is that blue poster thing are laying on?

Sounds pointless to me, I'd much rather play games on the console they were intended for. (I take a dim view of emulation also).

Yeah, the RetroGen sells for more than a Genesis. I bought a Genesis system last year for around $11.00 shipped. A good space saver though I suppose.
