But a Pal copy wouldn't work on an NA NES, or would it? Plus I've heard Pal copies run at 50hz, or maybe I'm wrong unless that's just soley for the PAL Wii NES emulations. As for the Japanese cart, I'd also have to buy myself a Famicom and to be honest I probably wouldn't even use it outside of Little Samson & Bubble Bobble 2.

A PAL cart should work in a top-loader. Though you of course could have minor graphics glitches or wrong speed music if the PAL version was re-timed over the NTSC version.
While I'm not as sure what a Famicom Bubble Bobble 2 goes for compared to the NES, I'm sure it's not cheap, either. (the genuine cart, of course I'm sure there's lots of bootlegs with it being a popular and expensive game)
I remember looking for a Famicom Jetsons for the cool rounded (almost N64-like) cart shape, and found the game to be even more elusive than the NES version. So I ended up getting a NES cart when the game was still pretty easy to find and was only selling at like $20. Now that game's value has blown up too.
I remember getting a Famicom Lickle a few years back for $30, and Naughty Kokkun's Gourmet World (Panic Restaurant) for about $25, when the NES carts were going for about $100 each.

I never get tired of the classic mega man games, they're just too classic! They're easier to get into, more cheerie and light hearted, the Robot masters are just more fun and for the most part bare a Cartoony human ressemblance instead of the uninteresting oversized brain dead Maverick robot animals & insects from the X games. The X series never really hooked me, playing just 'one' feels like enough. Zero was pretty ace i've got to say, but even i'm finding it extremely tough to bump 'n jump and Dive Man-dive into the sequal! The original was HARD, and offered some of the most kinetic, energentic and prestine-pixel timing i've ever experience in anything Mega related....Jumping into Zero 2 would be more intimidating than Mr. Bad to the beetljuice bones Rudy from The Monster Squad!

And if i could change one thing about the world it would be to have TIME machines available at an affordable price at your local super market! Preferably, I would love to blast back to 84-89' I would be perfectly happy living those years on Raphael-Repeat! You just can't beat the music, fashion, commercials, NES gaming, cartoons, horror & Fantasy movies from that era! And of course the early early 90's at least when it came to Cartoons, Commercials and SNES gaming. winky wink*

Also, SkyBlazer is another SNES title that sadly blazed past my Electric mullet during those Super days. I'm not familar with many of these less popular 3rd party gems, i guess I need an SNES history lesson for good old Master Splinter! As for Full House, i will only lend you the complete first season IF you give me a life long supply of Sprinkled Chips Ahoy! and your Complete in Box Nes Advange. I'd say the deal is more than fair!

Thanks for the info! I don't want to take the chance and get a Top loader if there's a possible chance of graphical gremlin(AVGN reference hehe) glitches or a decrease in music speed. Has anybody tested Little Samson in the Top Loader Vs. a regular NES? the Famicom is straight up out of the question, i don't like the idea of having to read 8-bit japanese text while playing on that HIDEOUS Red & White junk box montrosity of a console. That thing is the nastiest looking piece of NintenPlastic, I've ever layed eyes on. It looks like a missing piece from a G1 Transformer Autobot. While the Famicom controller looks like a Mr Game & Watch dipped in Radical Red paint! At least the actual Carts looked cool!

The Famicom...aka > StarScream Entertainment System!

i dont notice any difference running pal games on my top loader, though they say some games do slowdown.
guess i dont have all these problems other people have lol. ive seen a list online that shows pal games that run correctly on top loaders. i dont have the pal version of little samson, but from what i know, that version runs fine. of course do some research to satisfy your curiosity

Thanks for the toobular tip ObeseGamesOrca. When the time comes a knockin', I shall investigate with my classic 'n clumsy legendary mentor Inspector Gadget! But realy, it's too bad the PAL cover art has a big chunky square taking up most of the picture, but I can't be too picky...After all, it's about playing the game. Besides, it's not like it's essential to my collection anyways.

^Indeed, especially with Tales of the Abyss.

I got tired of waiting and bought Final Fantasy Legends II. This game is great and surprisingly hilarious in terms of dialogue.

^ Went to my local Game Craze today to buy a new SNES controller, and to see what new SNES games they had in. Instead... I purchased myself a Dreamcast. First Sega console/handheld I have ever owned in my life, EVER. With it, I got NFL 2k1 for $1.99, and Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation for $7.99. They didn't have much to choose from. I was going to get Marvel vs. Capcom 2, but it was a bit steep in price, and I've never been big on fighting games. Never played a MvC game either, not even on XBLA.

Both games were in amazing condition, surprisingly. Complete with the original case and little CD-type booklet inside.

And I had to go exchange it for a new copy. Oh well, this one seems much nicer.

Awesome find there, I have always been interested in owning a Dreamcast for some reason. They are cool and mysterious little boxes, and I've quite enjoyed Skies of Arcadia and Sonic Adventure Battle 2, albeit on my GCN. Even the console itself appears to be in pristine condition (according to the picture)

@wiggy - Nice pick-up. That's a lot for just this month, lol. What are the Mega Man games on the bottom, are they Japanese PS games?

@Optimist_Prime Thanks! Definitely loving NFL 2k1 right now. Tried Tomb Raider, but seems to be a bit of a learning curve with the controls. >_> I'll dive more into that eventually.

And I was wondering... is the Dreamcast region-locked? Or will PAL/Japan games play on it?

Yup! 1-6 for the PS1

@WiggytheHut: Nice work there this month. Princess Leia would be proud!

I finally picked up and started playing Yoshi's Island. I am very surprised at this game to be quite honest; it give's Super Mario World a run for it's Dragon Coins for Ryno's Top "Mario" Game!

Nice find! Box seems to be in amazing condition. I'm not too keen on SMW2 though. It's a great game, I just can't stand Baby Mario. The fact that every time you get hit, you have to hear Baby Mario cry, and scream, and cry, and scream until you're able to get him back is just annoying.

However, to be fair, it's probably got one of the coolest Bowser boss-fights ever.

Love Yoshi's Island, but like Driveshaft, baby (i.e. obnoxious crying) Mario grates on my nerves.

So, I'm sort of out of control this month. I wasn't trying to get back into NES collecting yet, but I saw these on Craigslist and couldn't help myself
