Thank you for crashing my browser guys. Twice.

Anyways, I picked up Clash at Demonhead and The Guardian Legend, both for a good price. Clash at Demonhead is pretty confusing, though, I'll need a map at the very least.

@CanisWolfred: Excellent choices! Yeah, Clash at Demonhead is a bit of a pain though I still had a good time with it.

It's by no means bad or anything, but I was astounded by the crazy map when I beat the first level. The controls also don't feel that smooth, but I'm getting used to it.

So guess what's arrived in my mail a few days ago (on the 12th)? ... Yeah, there's no point in asking, since I'll reveal the answer anyway, but Rushing Beat Ran — Fukusei Toshi (Brawl Brothers) and Rushing Beat Shura (The Peace Keepers) for the Super Famicom have come! I've been playing them a bit extensively (I haven't completed either game with all characters or difficulty settings yet, but I have beat them a few times), in a sense.

And from where I stand: they came, I saw, and (for the most part) they kick posterior! I still feel bad that I didn't play the original Rushing Beat (Rival Turf!) first since I try so hard nowadays not to jump into a game series out of their respective order; it's such a bad habit, to tell you the truth. Though I suppose I can't complain too much: I did get two games in one deal, so I guess that's consolation enough (if that makes sense at all). And after having played these, I can honestly say that; I like these games. They're not flawless by any means nor are they masterpieces, but man are they a lot of fun to play while they last (and both are interesting in their very own way).

Both are infinitely better than Final Fight 2 imo; yeah, I know I already bagged on the game enough here, so I'll spare you from the further rambling of mine for that title

I'll elaborate on my initial impressions of the two in the morning (it's 1:05 AM here).

I just re-purchased Dragon Warrior III (GBC) off eBay. T'was hard to find considering it was never released in Europe, but it brings back great nostalgia from my childhood. First Dragon Quest/Warrior game I ever played. I never got far at all in it, so I'm going to finally get to play it through. >:3

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

You'll love it, man. It's probably my favorite Dragon Quest game after Dragon Quest V, and easily one of the best remakes I've seen.

WarioWare: Do It Yourself (Nintendo DS) = £2.50
Viewtiful Joe (GameCube - US) = £2.00
Donkay Konga + Bongos (GameCube - EU) = £6

Not a bad find, if I don't say so myself. Now I have 4 bongos for bongo parties! YAY!

@RynoTheSnowMan

Even though i personally hate this game more than frosty the Sony man, i must give you props for sticking with the 'CIB' tradition. How much did you pay for this early 90's overrated Zombie stinker? This brings back memories of also playing Barts Nightmare which is probably one of the worst and most frustrating SNES games i've ever rented, THAT and home alone. What was i thinking? Heck, Macculy culkin probably knew better!

Anyways, i haven't retro'd it up in quite a while since the big move. I will be picking up some christmasy' retro treaties' for this upcoming christmas....Hopefully, unless my wallet gets emptied from buying more furniture and Wii U related goodness tee hee.

Time to make @CountWavula jealous Well now I can celebrate the Christmas season in style

I got that retro gem at my local Goodwill for only a buck. I remember watching this with my brother every Christmas when it was on tv. Good stuff. Now I just need a copy of Garfield's Christmas and the He man and She Ra and I will be set.

Haha. I have 2 copies of that, but unfortunately i payed nearly 30x that. BTW, i was trying to score Garfield's christmas off amazon and it's going for quite the penny. Garfield: Holiday Celebration which has both the christmas and halloween special is going for $164 brand new off amazon.ca, with a used copy going for $39.99. I opted for this instead, along with 6 other christmas DVD's!

Bump 'n the night was a fantastic stop motion show that debuted in the early-mid 90's, can't wait to revisit this zany series!

Am I the only one for which Tasuki's "spoiler" is a very jealous inducing "Untitled" text and "referral denied" error?

@CountWavula: I have never played Zombies Ate My Neighbors and it may not be the greatest game ever (that’s reserved for Super Metroid by the way) but one thing it does have is classic late 80’s and early 90’s charm with a slice of horror cheese melted in for good measure. You know it, I know it, @ogo79, @kingMike, @Tasuki, and some others around here know that the games of this time are special and unique with their own Q-Bert quirkiness. I know I have mentioned this plenty of times before but I am not just buying these games to play, but to build a collection like you and your McDonald’s cheeseburger wrappers. Anyway, I have got most of “classics” and games I grew up with. I’m now more into the hidden gems and maybe not so gem like lesser known games.

I thought the "spoiler" tags on repeat were a nice touch until I didn't see anything after that. Leave it to Tasuki to mess that up.

@Have_yourself_a_merry_Little_Tasuki
The prince of broken links is at it again! Anymore Christmas Classics you have lined up for this Christmas? As for Peewee's Christmas special, it's good and all, but it doesn't hold a candle to the actual playhouse TV series. Probably because they overflowed it with special guests and something just seemed a bit off.

Peewee wasn't quite in his younger prime 'funny' days either. This was the end of the playhouse and Peewee was clearly aging and losing a bit of his mojo. You should see the guy as pee wee now, he's a shadow of his former self. Still Peewee's christmas special is a classic nonetheless. But i prefer Will Vintons Claymation christmas! Can't get enough of them' 80's raisins.
