Maybe the AVGN review got a few more views to my old videos I posted a few years ago where I play my Tiger Sonics (that I warn I had to clean out battery corrosion right before because they had been sitting in a drawer forgotten for at least a decade). :D

I should've bought the Time Diver game before it was well-known and the prices went up (because the game can only be bought through means which cannot be explained here. I was able to get JP originals of all those released games, though I wouldn't blame people for going to desperately get Moon Crystal. I needed site credit, saved up from buying like a hundred other games, to convince me to get the real game from the site I bought from.)

Oh I didn't forget about Wizard Fire, it is probably the game I am looking forward to the most on this. I just didn't mention because all the serfs are probably unfamiliar with it. Also, as Canis mentioned, I'm looking forward to pop it likes it hot in Magical Drop III.

@ogo79: Dang man, why do you have to keep introducing to more "Japan only" or "completed but never released" games? Oh yeah and eat communism!

You know that screenshot is from a hoax version of the game?
Then again, your comment suggests you are.
(for anyone who needs the backstory: in 2005, some guy went on a game collectors forum called Digital Press and said he found a Bio Force Ape cart at a garage sale or something. Discussion exploded between the "ROMmunists" who wanted to see it dumped for everyone to play, and the "buttery" collectors (I know at least one ROM preservationist who had then stereotyped collectors as fat nerds) who wanted the game purely as a financial investment. The "owner" continued to make up the game's storyline, with nobody seeming to notice how it COINCIDENTALLY followed the exchange of insults in the thread, featurning an anti-communism ape fighting a butter blob who announces "I AM MADE OF BUTTER AND AM WORTH 2K MONIES" (as the collectors appraised a proto at about $2000).
Eventually the "owner" decided the prank had run its course and posted a photo of the fake cart smashed.
The prototype of the real game turned up in 2010. I remember seeing that cart also fake-smashed. Around the same time, another guy was working on a homebrew version of the game based on the hoax.

So this weekend I went to the London McM Comiccon, and for the NES got hold of Back to the Future Part 2&3, The Goonies 2, Xenophobe, Joe & Mac: Caveman Ninja and Cool Spot. Now it's the Cool Spot that took me completely by surprise to learn this version was a puzzle game and not a Platform!

Yes, there was Spot for the NES and Game Boy, which was a port of a puzzle game. (I can't remember if the original computer game it was based on had the license or if that was only added in the port)
Then there was Spot's Cool Adventure, which was a Game Boy sequel to McKids (though in Europe and Australia both the NES and Game Boy versions were released as McDonaldland).
Then Cool Spot.

So I hear Joe & Mac is actually a hard to find game (at least the NES version, I'd imagine the PAL version even moreso). Though I thought the SNES version was better (all other versions were based on the arcade), but that might just be me.

Cool the Joe & Mac was a PAL copy no box, (and cost me £10), the rest were US. And I had McDonaldland on gameboy until recently. Had a bug that freeze the game quite far in so was never able to complete it.

Originally the PC game didnt have the licensed and was set as a budget game titled Infection, but then they added the license and increased the price.

Grabbed myself a copy of Final Fantasy Adventure. I wasn't going to get any more gameboy games, but it looked like it had never been played before, and it wasn't super expensive, either, so I bought it. Just played about 30 minutes, and it plays great so far. Reminds me of Crystalis (which I was just playing earlier this morning), except far more refined.

Watching a replay of Pat the NES Punk's charity marathon, the retro commercials sold me on a Rare game that's got to be uncommon at least, Wizards & Warriors 3 for $9 shipped looks nice. Haven't decided if I should buy Fabio's game to finish the set.
(though glad I didn't have to pay to watch Pat's videos yet after one of the non-retro commercials crashed the video. :P )

And one of the retro ads I saw was for Air Fortress, advertising itself as a game that was going to be in the NWC. Great. Put finishing level 6 of that game as one of the challenges, also the speed bike level of Battletoads (if that game had been created yet). :D

Woohoo! Got myself a copy of Dragon Warrior from the library book sale! And it only cost me a dollar. Now if I hadn't come to terms with this game, that would've been the perfect opportunity to literally chuck this game out of the top story window, but now I think I'll actually play it.
