WEll, soon I'm gonna order Spider Man 2 and TTYD for GC for only $1.98! :D

Wow, that even beats whenever I got Warioware Mega Party Games for $5 back in February 2012 (same day I got Rhythm Heaven Fever).

Rest in Peace ShiftyLook

Ordered a few more uncommon SFC RPGs to the collection, all CIB: Akazukin Chacha, Crystal Beans (a port of Dungeon Explorer II, I think. Might as well get it as it looks like we won't be getting the rare TGCD version on VC. I anticpate this one is going to go up in value now that a ROM translation has been finished), Bushi Seiryuuden (some platformer/RPG thing by GameFreak? I guess it was one of their last games before they nearly exclusively focused on Pokemon), Dragon Knight 4 (a strategy game, I know it's based on a hentai RPG but eh, a few bucks), Ranma RPG, Sansaara Naaga (Famicom, I need to know WTF is going on in this game :) Tried it in an emulator, it seems like as soon as you talk to anyone, the games goes nuts, displaying random text and sound effects. People tell me it's not a bug. :P ) and its SFC sequel (again, might as well grab it for a couple bucks)

Another Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 cart. Only because my current copy is the Flash-based Memory Cassette version. Deciding I'd order the rare "ROM" version (aka the packaged version, I guess) when I found one that is less crazy expensive.

Thanks to my awesome girlfriend who waited at a garage sale and held these so I could go get some cash from ATM I was able to snag 3 wireless Akklaim NES Controllers and a Gameboy carrying case. All for $6.

@RancidPukage86
A touching story indeed. Sniffles* I've never played around with the wireless Acclaim NES controller, but good lordy' does this semi-classic NES commercial make me want to get one....That is, if it can in fact shoot Space Age Neon Laser beams. :p

And only $6? Talk about an amazing deal, considering a single Acclaim Nes controller goes for about $15-30 not incuding shipping on eBay. I still need to get me' an NES Advantage CIB and a flashy yet practically useless & broken Nintendo Powerglove.

Nice, I had that Gameboy case and I totally miss it. Very multipurpose too, not only can you carry the mean green screen around with it's awesome games but you could knock a fool out if one starts to mess.

80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

FINALLY! After months and months of procrastinating while praying that the ghosts 'n Goblins over at Crapcom would hopefully get their stuff together and release MM6 on the Wii's VC...I decided "Funk it". I'm not getting any younger and capcom isn't doing anything with the Blue Bomber aside from slowly releasing NES VC Mega Man games on the 3DS that were ALREADY available on the Wii. Besides, I'm done With the Wii and 3DS's Virtual console. I'm getting the carts 'only' from now on for a few reasons that I'll mention below. :p

Stock eBay Photo. Zoink!

As I've said before, which has actually been brought up in other forums...Wii 'NES' VC emulations are piss poor in the color and brightness department compared to how they actually look on the NES. It's quite striking actually.The colors are much more colorful, rich and vibrant on the REAL thing. Then you have that extra bit of lag that you have to put up with on the Wii's VC(it's only 1 frame) which all emulations have PLUS the present input lag on your HDTV(unless you are using an SDTV) which basically equals a botched experience and gives you a more slugghish feeling/false impression of how the game actually plays.

And that's how Super Mario Bros. 3 (just one ex) exactly felt + the crappier colors on my Plasma Vs my Retro SDTV Tube TV(hooked up with the NES) just a while ago. A fellow X NintendoLife poster 'NintenyGaming' brought this up earlier and boy was he spot on. Anyways, I guess you could say i'm embracing all of this Retrogoodness even more now. It's Carts ONLY for this He-man Hoolagin from here on out kiddies! :* B-)
