Import Metal Max 2 Reloaded. Sadly importing 4 after it becomes old is not an option, thanks region-lock.
Captain Ed for Famicom. A very strange (LOL Sony) shmup.
Labyrinth for Famicom. Someone made a (somewhat) Gauntlet-like run and shoot game based on a Jim Henson movie. And, I presume, the final boss is David Bowie. How very 1980s! :D Unfortunately that "someone" is Activision and Tokuma, the people who brought us Ghostbusters. Better set the expectations low. :P

Meanwhile, my NES had been a little touchy loading games lately, so I opened it up — for the first time in its 25+ year life — and cleaned the pin connectors and cleared out the accumulated decades-old dust, so now it works like new once again. However, my NES Advantage is having some major issues, as now when I press the A button it registers as pushing the Start button. :D Gonna take it apart and see if I can figure out what the issue is.

What method did you use to clean your nes?

I've just bought Zelda game and watch and greenhouse with battery covers and clasps intact. Can't wait to sit down and play with them :) one thing I have noticed is the difference in prices. You guys seem to get some great deals but it's all pricey in Australia!!!

Our resident expert on cleaning systems here is the almighty @ogo79 , but basically you can use q-tips and rubbing alcohol to clean the contacts, and maybe a can of compressed air to really blow out the ports and make sure there's no dust or hair in the ports. When I opened it up, I found that one of the reasons (probably the primary reason) my NES was acting iffy was because there was a long, ultra-thin, nearly invisible thread tucked into the cartridge port, which obviously was causing interference with the game contacts.

Went to Toy Trader last night which has a butt load of vintage action figures from the 70's all the way up to the 2000's. I'll post some picks of my gnarly finds(mostly being 'loose' figures) whenever i find my silly camera PC cable. :* It's always 10x more more enjoyable going on the hunt and coming across an unexpected treasure from your child hood rather than going on eBay and gettng anything you want that's overpriced to begin with and having to wait weeks for it to arrive from video land in your loony tunes mail box. The loose figures in zip lock bags are where it's at, i don't need to pay premium price just to have every single little accessory. :P I got some great deals, things that would be DOUBLE the price on ebay.

@CountWavula: Sorry Holmes, if you are paying double brick and mortar stores on Ebay, then you are using eBay wrong. Retro themed stores are overpriced if you ask this this guy.

I bought Mario's Picross and Super Breakout both complete for the Gameboy at a theft store for $3 each.

Curiosity Shop, no. Goodwill, yes. I meant to say thrift store.

Keep in mind, that i use eBay Canada and it's severely lacking in terms of having domestic canadian sellers(For ex, you'll have maybe 30 US sellers selling Double Dragon II and maybe 2 from Canada or NONE.lol), to the point where i'm always buying from_US_ sellers and having to wait at least 12 business days to receive my funkalicious' item which is always a bit of a pain in the baxter stockman tooshie. ;)

I may have been taught well by master splinter, but my patience with purchasing items from the US at this point is ultimately BAD DUDES. I struggle to find good deals unless there's some bidding to be had.. Anyhoo, the downside to eBay aside from not getting your item instantly is that you're looking at a screen, scrolling down a web page with absolutely everything at your fingertips & anything can be had with the touch of a button. That hunt, just the fun in actually going to a thrift store, swap meet ect is totally Null and finding that hidden treasure or surprise is lost. Either way, i still use both. eBay's obviously more convenient and you don't have to waste Gas money haha, but it's not the same. Besides it's always more fun to get some sun or your face and communicate with them NintenZoids and retro toy fanatics. :P

But yeah, sweet buy. Breath of Fire's BoxArt sends me back to an early 90's vortex of when nintendo was so super.....Plus that inferior genesis with it's step down quality and awkward bulky black boomerang controller. I was never a big RPG fan, but i johnny blazed & gazed while my friend took on many of the SNES RPG classics such as Final Fantasy III(The most amazing imo), Earthbound, Super Mario RPG and Secret of Mana which is my personal favorite as it's not turn based. My michaelangelo ADD at the time didn't have an anchovi of a problem with that one! It managed to get past my Mario & mega man 'only' mentality. ;)......ribbit

Denver: The Last Dinosaur, you know. An U.S. -French cartoon. That cute dinosaur like the skateboard and the guitar. When I've seen the first episode to the Dailymotion site (Only in French version) the last year, I've not seen again an episode anymore for more 15 years. After, I can't grow tired of that series anymore. That's why I already bought these five volumes in DVD.

My latest Retro Purchase is none other than 8-Bit Xmas 2013 from Retrousb. A new Homebrew game for the NES, where the cart is more interesting than the game itself. They are available until end of December.
