I got a CD-only Android Assault for Sega CD. Should be getting a Robo Aleste disc soon and a CIB Dungeon Explorer.
Too bad the remaining good SCD games I'd want are quickly getting too expensive.
Has the AVGN made people want to start finding good games after he's ripped on a few examples of why the console was so disliked: FMV games and also-on-cart games with CD music (like Sol-Feace)?



Ok so a trip to my local Retro game store yield for me


as well as


(Yeah I know the pic is the PAL version but I got the NA version)

I have been in a PS mode lately so I have been going back and picking up some PS one and PS2 retro goodieness.

@Ogo79: Oh and if you are ever in Northern California give me a shot the retro store had a complete copy of Earthbound for the low low price of $999.99

@Tasuki - Spyro the Dragon is a very good game, and its two PS1 follow-ups are as well I hope you like it.

Does the downloadable service count? Oh well, I'll bring it up anyway. In the Nintendo eShop I downloaded The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for free (even though I have the GameCube original, I was curious to see how it looked in HD, and it looks gorgeous); I did that as soon as traffic cooled down (which was a full day and a half after Christmas). For the first time in over four and a half years I've downloaded some games from the Virtual Console, starting with EarthBound (which is so zany, quirky, and wacky it's really charming; I like it a lot so far ), then I downloaded Final Fight 3 (which I'm convinced right now is the best Final Fight, and a massive improvement over the Home Alone 2'd sequel to the first game Final Fight 2 It's got a plethora of moves, different paths, and is actually fun to play, imo). Then I downloaded Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (since I was intrigued by the fact that there were two arcade games in it--Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara, and so far I think it's okay; I do like the retro arcade feel of it though, and its visuals are really good). Several days later I downloaded Kirby's Adventure, and the next, Kirby Super Star; even though I have their remakes (Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby Super Star Ultra respectively), I wanted to experience them in their original forms (compare and contrast, too). I only have enough points to download one more game, but I think I'll hold off on that (unless something catches my interest). I may still prefer to play games in physical cartridges (or discs, depending on the console); but it feels so good to download from the Virtual Console again (I took my time before downloading each game, so I'm glad I didn't spend all the points at once).

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.

I have just won Shining in the Darkness (Sega Genesis, eBay).

And some days ago, I ordered some boxed GB games and a GBA sp (Mario vs. Donkey Kong design).

Indeed! That's a game that usually goes for $40, even when it was still available online!

It used to be worth a lot, until it was digitally released on other consoles.

I ordered a Lunar 2 Sega CD-only. Might be it for that console.

Well, now from what I understand it won't be availavle anymore, so I guess the price will go up again.

I bought Wario World for 10 euro - I've heard good things about it mostly, so I finally have a chance to try it out.

Any opinions on the Gameboy Light's screen quality? I may have a GBA SP but I want the authentic experience of playing GB games on the brick. I have two options: Dismantle both my SP and GBC to make a Backlit GBC or track down a GB Light.

I don't want to resort to risk breaking both my systems so I want to know what your thoughts are for the GB Light.

It's games are very expensive, though. It might be safer for his wallet to write it off after all...

Exactly. Many of the good games I've either got already or they're way too expensive.
Got Dungeon Explorer, Lunar 1, Vay, Shining Force CD, Lords of Thunder, Android Assault, Robo Aleste, Funky Horror Band (some bizarre JP RPG), Keio (JP. Was a little expensive, but nowhere near the US price). Don't have Sonic CD because I'm not sure if I need it as I already have a bundle of the PC versions of Sonic 3 + Knuckles + CD 1996 version.

Nothing too exciting here, But....Since the VHS player broke down on poor little Wavey 3 months or so ago, i decided to finally buy a, just a few minutes ago. Here it tis', in all of it's glory in this Ugly Online eBay quickie photo. The guy could of at least set up a more appealing background. Not that it matters, but when i sell items on ebay i try to make a dazzling presentation, which typically leads to me throwing gaming goods on my bright pure white shag rug.


Anyhoo, I'm donatello 'n dieing to watch my VHS copies of Masters of the Universe, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and TMNT: Attack of the Killer pizza's.....I want that old school fuzzy 240i resolution and nostalgic warpy' sound bursting out of my retro set up. Man, as soon as i see that F.H.E(Family Home entertainment ) animated Log jolt up on the screen before Attack of the Killer Pizzas I'm going to go Ape Sh** nostalgic and freak the fido dido out!


There was just something about that logo growing up that just stuck with me..... Same with the DIC kid. Magical stuff indeed.

Boooo... booo... booo... booom... deek.



Buckle up kids, cuz Uncle Shpydar's got a whole buncha new old stuff. The first pic is online purchases (via eBay and, and the rest are today's haul from Ye Olde Retro Shoppe ...

Castlevania (N64) — let's see if this game is actually any good ...
The Mafat Conspiracy (NES) — the lesser known 2nd Golgo 13 NES game.
Replacement 72-pin connector for NES ... no more fiddling with carts for me!

Super Mario Bros. 2 with manual (NES) — needed to have the original cart in my collection, plus the manual is in mint condition.
Top Gun — I don't care what James Rolfe says, landing the plane is NOT that hard. Did it on my first try when playing this for the first time in 20+ years.

Nothing special with this batch, just some Activision games to fill holes in my collection:
Checkers (Atari 2600)
Enduro (Atari 2600)
Ice Hockey (Atari 2600)
Tennis (Atari 2600)

More Activision games, but this batch are rare:
Grand Prix - blue label version (Atari 2600)
Rampage - rare (Atari 2600)
River Raid II - rare+ (Atari 2600)

Commando - complete in box (Atari 2600) — slightly rare, and the box is in pristine shape. Also Activision (though you may recall that Capcom released the NES version of the game).

The Shpydarloggery
She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.
Current E.T. count: 34 Copies. 4 Sealed, 14 CIB, 16 Cart-Only.
