Paperboy on the Nintendo 64 is ... um ... okay, I think... actually, I thought it was meh; you can't beat the original arcade game however! Now that's a classic; but to each their own.

only bought it because i want to get the complete set of 242 PAL releases. Only 10 more to go! I do remember playing this game on the ZX Spectrum

@Mk_II And why not a ZX Haunter? Because the Pokémon Spectrum is the french name of Haunter! :D Isn't it funny? :)

the name ZX Spectrum was chosen to indicate that it had no less than a 16 colour palette... a full spectrum in those happy days. The original ZX only had B/W output.

Puyo Puyo SFC lot.
Super Puyo Puyo 1, 2 Remix, and Nazo Puyo 1. Just the games I don't already own (if one excludes Kirby's Avalanche). :)

For the SNES, F1 ROC II complete (not a bad deal, even if it's complete with rental stickers all over it). Name kind of sucks though, should've kept it Exhaust Heat. (I had previously ordered this game, but the seller sent me a copy of the first game)
As well a CIB Super Famicom Twinbee Rainbow Bell Adventures. Bought that from amazon, which I also took that opportunity to pre-order Pandora's Tower at the same time. Luckily it seems amazon is still going to only charge me for Twinbee at this time.

I thought TwinBee: Rainbow Bell Adventure was a good spinoff to the cute'em series, and I think it's a fun game (even though it doesn't surpass the traditional games in the series, imo).

@RynoBoogerYa, i'd skip on the Dreamcast man. It's probably not worth your time, and your time is going to be even more limmited with Ryno Jr on the way! :p btw, Congrats man! Being a father is going to be pretty surreal. Aside from retro gaming, just be sure to stack up on some classic sitcoms, movies and cartoons on on dvd. Wouldn't want to expose R.Jr to the brain dead trashy life sucking reality TV, half a**ed throwaway forgettable & Moraless cartoons and the junky overrexagerated fake and annoying glitzy tween sitcoms of today that are reaking up the airwaves. i don't even need cable anymore....I just use Netflex mainly for older movies, but mostly watch my favorite shows or movies on DVD & VHS, or just to have something playing on in the background.

Anyways! TV-talk aside, the Genesis has a better selection of games than the DC, but when you've got an SNES the genesis looks as appealing as Danny Tanner's Dust buster collection. I play the odd genesis game on the Wii's VC , but that's it really. I will get an Atari 2600 one day to play in short bursts while getting an ever deeper blast(but not my past) from the past. :p And of course the PS2...Just so i can play a few or so PS1 and PS2 titles. But i doubt I'll keep the thing for long. lol

BTW, totaly retro-unrelated, but i'll post it here because i'm not overly crazy about the Wii U forum. I am much more amped for the Wii U now. Reason being is because of the RE:Revelations, Yoshi's Yarn and Zelda: Wind Waker U trailer reveal/announcements. :D No, Mr. OCD still hasn't opened up the Wii u yet, i will in early Feb once i replace my furniture and get my set up in tip top shape. It's gotta feel right haha. You and Tasuki will be the first two I'll add!

@Wavenstein: Thanks for the congrats sir! Hopefully Little Ryno The Dream Master will like my radical retro collection because it will be his someday. B-) Watch him turn out to be an Xbox fanboy or a PC Revenge of the Nerd... Ha! Yeah, I’m super excited for fatherhood. The first controller he will have in his little mitts will be a NES for sure and the first game he plays or more like presses buttons for will be Super Mario Bros. :D Agreed cable is rip off. All you need is Netflix and the Internet and you got all the shows you need. But if you want to see the classic Joey Gladstone ”cut it out” you have got to get the DVD. Plus I got to get the Captain N The Game Master - The Complete Series so Little Ryno can see the pinnacle of Video game cartoons!

So, to continue on your retro-unrelated discussion, I’m glad to hear you are about to awaken the Wii U from its Videoland slumber. I don’t know what is up with the Tasukimeister, he still hasn’t added me yet. :P

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.

11 issues of Nintendo Power from 1995 (missing issue 69 from February). Most still with their posters and the 3D glasses that came with the virtual boy issue is still intact.

That's one of the few random issues I still have from my subscription as a kid, but the cover (Mega Man X2) tore long ago. :(

Did you send me a request? Sorry bout that dude if you did. I havent been on my Wii U much other than for Netflix since the only games I own is FIFA 13 and Nintendoland. I was hoping to get Assassins Creed III or NSMBU this month but I had to pay for a new washing machine. Next time I am on I will see if you sent me a request.

A dubbed Fire Emblem anime VHS tape. I'm not sure if I still have a working VCR, but I bought it anyways. Too bad it hasn't been re-released on DVD (though I know there are sellers selling bootleg transfers). My guess is it was cheaper to license the first time because few people outside of Japan had probably heard of the game at the time.
A bunch of cheap CIB Super Famicom SRPGs.
I also ordered some seemingly obscure Japanese PS1 game called Lup Salad. Looks super-cute but it's a block-pushing puzzle game, so I can't resist. GameFAQs (which is how I found it, while looking up other games) claims it was released on PSN in NA, but my PSP and Wikipedia seem to say otherwise. :(

I've recently purchased Sonic 2 for the Mega Drive. Very nostalgic, and defiantly one of my favourite 2D platformers.

Best part is, its the european/japanese box, without ugly melting Sonic.....

"Melting Sonic"? Checking GameFAQs it would seem Sonic 2 had the same box in all regions except Japan.
Sonic 1, the US had a different Sonic than other regions.
