@CanisWolfred Thanks. It's with the AD-29 Upgrade adaptor that I can play some US & JAP games on SNES in Europe.

Have been close to buying Robotrek a couple of times. Rereading the reviews and the music is what stops me from puling the trigger.

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.

Yeah, Robotrek doesn't exactly have a high quality soundtrack, but there are a few decent tunes in it (just not many). As for the game itself, I think it's all right.

Got a gbc in very good condition, alonh with Super Mario Land 2 and Donkey Kong Country gbc for 13$! They all work fine. I don't think the seller knew what he had.

Me again... Bought a sega genesis model 1 for $40.00 at a local comic/card shop. My original one is dead and prices on eBay arent getting any cheaper...figured 40 wasn't too bad. I see model 2's all the time at value villiage for a lot less...but the model 1 is what I had as a kid. Anything else just feels wrong

@nocode_The_Noodle
Nice! I have that mint & Stappled inside my classic Nintendo Power Volume. 7 (1989) which i scored off eBay a few months back! They just don't make them like they used to.

I still need to get around to playing Journey To Silius one of these goofylicious days. Sucks to hear that your previous copy of Journey to Silious had a Nightmare on elm Street and suffered the wrath of Freddy's fancy finger blades! It happens to the best us.lol Anyways! I shall post the 4 latest Retro goodies i picked up from Castle Greyskull after I get it together here and stop wasting my precious time commenting on that silly Dr. Doom & Gloom based 'Nintendo Needs a Miracle' thread.

It's just a bunch of mindless predictions that have no real impact or outcome weather the Wii U will do well or not. 'Nintendo' needs to worry about sales and the future that lies ahead of them, Not us/the fans. They have Billions of dollars that will last them decades in the industry even IF the Wii U turns into a flop. Wii(hehe) should be playing the games we want to play and most importantly having FUN. The NL Wii U forum has become 'the Buisness side of the industry' and All doom & gloomy' filled with quite a few trolls as of late...Going to stay clear of that uninteresting garble garble and negativity from here on out. 1st world problems indeed.

That game is getting a little expensive, but a lot more with box and manual.

I guess being a Japanese-exclusive Disney game increases the value. And I think it was also made around the time Capcom was losing interest in 16-bit, so maybe it is less common? I don't think it's actually rare, though, as you can easily find a few copies at any point, if you're willing to pay.
I only played a bit, but I suppose it suffers from Capcom sequelitis: good on its own but very similar to its predecessors.

I did somewhat recently tried the first, and WOW: on Hard Mode, the game doesn't care anymore if it's a kid's game, it's still going to punch your face in with more enemies in more devious positions!

@KingMike - yeah, The Magical Quest starring mickey Mouse will do that on Hard mode, but it's still manageable if you persevere long enough, but even then it's not that difficult

In regards to the third game, finally a Magical Adventure sequel that's got music that can stack up to the first game's music (even surpass it, maybe)! The music is just awesome; The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickey & Minnie, as much as I love that game, had a very weak soundtrack in comparison to the first one (I mean, what happened, Mari? Your music is better than this!). Then again, is it just me or do most (first) sequels usually have inferior soundtracks to the first game's music (examples that come to mind are ActRaiser 2, Final Fight 2, and Kirby's Dream Land 2, among others) regardless of whether the games themselves are better or not? I honestly can't help but find that distracting

@RetroBrony91: Nice purchase there. I was unaware that third game in the Magical Quest series was released. Of course I dont have a Super Famicom so thats probably why. Let me know if you ever do a review on it on your blog. BTW like your new avatar too.

It wasn't officially released in the west until the GBA port.
I can only guess a couple reasons why a SNES version was never released: it was released in Japan in December 1995, the last holiday season before Capcom USA completely stopped publishing 16-bit games. Also, that is when Disney entered the console game publishing business with Toy Story (previously they only published PC software). Possibly some sort of licensing issues (Capcom did publish the SFC version of Toy Story)?

StarBoy91

@Tasuki - thank you, and I will
@KingMike - oh, and if you think Hard mode on The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse is challenging, you should try Mickey no Tokyo Disneyland Daibōken (on the highest difficulty setting) sometime (if you haven't already). Now that game is tough!
@RetroM4n - that's a cool chair!

I might look for that one, though for SFC purchases I still have a few medium-expensive RPGs to knock off my list first.

Sadly, my no-case Dreamcast games have officially gone missing. I think I had Sega Smash Pack, Virtual On, Rumble 2 Rumble, Sonic Party (err... I mean Shuffle ) and Evolution (of the few RPGs on DC?).
Even after thoroughly cleaning my messy game shelf.
Luckily the GameCube remake/port of Evolution seems fairly cheap (listed for about $25 sealed), so I bought one.

But my missing powder-blue AGS-101 did turn up on that shelf, so it isn't all bad.
