It's about Alfin' time! I was torn between this, or the first seasons of Punky Brewster and Full House.

Nice buys! So how far did you manage to make it in Battletoads? I actually haven't touched that infuriating little gem since the early wurly' 90's... a time when my gaming skills didn't quite make Turtle hall of Fame status. I never once made it past that dreaded speeder bike area....I can't even imagine how much tougher it gets after that, but I guess I'll know soon enough since this is going to be my next Retro buy. That, or finally forking down the whoppin' $45 for Mega Man 6(Cart only) that i've kept blabbing about for months on end. As for Earthbound...Do those scratch 'n sniff characters smell just as funky
as they did back in the early 90's?lol Earthbound got the Mother of all SNES treatments. The box was gigantic.

@Mk_II
That would be a nice item to burn in 'Little Inferno'.

Cybernator's price has gone up. Now it's averaging around $12-15 for the cart.
A year ago I got a cart in a local store for $4 and that was about the typical ebay price.

I also recently got this too:

@AlfBoy: Nice vid. Classic example of how they do not make 'em like they used too! Alf was some good quality entertainment you could watch with the whole family. Now, all you get is reality trash or some over sexed up crime/murder drama. My wife and I are expecting our first child in June and as I think about watching TV with my kids it makes me miss the 80's & 90's. Maybe I just need to stock up on all the old classic sitcoms that we know and love!

As for Battletoads, I think it was one of my most played NES games. I remember I got for Christmas (why, oh why did I sell it?) and up until the SNES that game was one of my most played. As for how far I got, well are you asking with warp zones or not? I think I have made it totage 11 I did get pretty good at the the speeder bike 3rd level after frequent playing though. I think when I play it again the lightning fast reflexes will come back to me like Captain Planet comes back to the Planeteers! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Battletoads and seeing if you can beat the game from which legends are made!

I'm not scratching these sniffers! A minty Earthbound guide is to valuable to waste on a quick whiff. Other than Mario Paint I cannot think of any other SNES game that got the Motherload box.

@Ryno; I had Battletoads for the NES in fact I think I still do. No other game before or after have I had such a love/hate relationship with a game. OMG the hours I spent trying to master the speed bike course and eventually mastering it. Without warping I believe I got to the level right after the surf board level where you fight the big rat boss. After that its a bit fuzzy for me since its been years since I played that game.
