Nice get. With my absolute love for the King's Quest series, I really need to grab this one day (despite having the PC version).

An oddity I noticed is that while that game is a battery-backup game (though giving a choice using either RAM save or passwords) , it seems to have the normal gray caution label than the gold label they typically used.

I also realized I should open my Genesis controller to see if it's dirty (after trying Contra: Hard Corps on my friend's console, to realize my controller seems to want to be the one in control :P ) but I can't find any screwdrivers small enough. I guess that will need to be another "retro" purchase. :P

Well I know I said that I was leaving but I had to come back to share this incredible news. Not so much a retro purchase though more of a retro find.

Well today I was cleaning out my storage shed and found my box that I had stored all my old NES game boxes in. As I was digging around in it I remembered alot of them but to my surprise I found a Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers 2 box still wrapped in the plastic wrap although it was opened at the top to take the game out. I nearly had an accident in my pants when I saw this. I knew I have the game in fact its in my retro game room but I dont remember it coming in the box. :O.

Yeah so needless to say my copy of Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers 2 is now CIB. I am not sure if I want to sell it now or hang on to it. Of course if I do decide to sell it I will let you guys know cause I know with you guys it will get a new retro home.

Hope you enjoy every minute(there's probably 20) of TMNT Footclan. :P One of my favorites.....It doesn't get anymore than 'on the go' than this game, possibly one of the shortest sidescrollers to ever be spewed out of Turtle Mania Video Land! And this reminds me, i still haven't touched my green stained copy of TMNT III: Radical Rescue, better go dig it up!....And that oh so sweet Wii U, which I'll finally be unboxing at the end of the month. I can't believe i picked it up last christmas and still haven't even touched it, me so cwazy. But i just wasn't ready for it because i felt like i already missed out on too many great wii games which i'm actually sort of almost caught up with.

today i got the wii u!
but before anyone starts saying: "THIS ISNT A RETRO PURCHASE!, YER WRONG!, YOU SMELL BAD!, IM TELLING NINTENDO! AND YER EVIL!"
just know this, anything i get is old automatically once it lands in my hands.
i win, and you all lose miserably.
i got the black one :*
with 8 million bytes of memory or whatever the hell its called.
i also got another wii remote and another classic controller.
and an sd card to transfer my wii vc games.
i walked out the store feeling like a man. i mean a vampire hunter.
because you are all men, but im a vampire hunter
