Parents who can't tell their kids "no" when they whine to eat at McDonalds every time they see a commercial, put the blame on McDonalds for making commercials.

Put the blame on the parents for being slaves to their children and forgetting to tell their kids that there is a thing called 'balance' & moderation McDonalds commercials are pure a** these days, lifeless bland minimal soccer mom dribble, with cringe worthy jingles from Justin Timberlake taking a bite out of a big mac. Those were early 2000's i know, but damn....

Mcdonalds commercials haven't been awesome since 95' I'm pretty sure right after that or around that time, McDonalds Land & friends got blown up by Master Chief's BroRocket who was recruited by Soccer Mom Health United.

I just got my first Retro console at a very, Very, VERY, reasonable price. Let's just say I got it for a full priced current gen AAA retail game. Games that came with this package:

  • Donkey Kong Country
  • Donkey Kong Country 2
  • Donkey Kong Country 3
  • F1 Pole Position
  • Street Fighter II Turbo
  • Super Mario Kart
  • Super Mario World
  • Yoshi's Island
  • Super Game Boy adapter with a free Tetris

This term will be quite endearing for me.

@Karakato: Nice haul there. I can't help but notice that that is a NA copy of DKC, was that a mistake or can Super Famicom's play NA games?

@Tasuki - based on my knowledge about the Super Famicom and how it functions: no, it can't. So Karakato may have to search for the Japanese SFC cart Super Donkey Kong in order to play it on the Super Famicom.

And for that matter:
@Karakato - yay, you get to experience Super Famicom games, awesome!!! As someone who collects SFC carts myself, I have lots of recommendations for you... erm, if half of them weren't RPGs, heh heh. So here are the games I recommend you check out should you decide to explore more SFC goodness (from what I've played): Alcahest, Mickey & Donald: Magical Adventure 3, Mickey no Tokyo Disneyland Daibōken, Pop'n TwinBee, TwinBee: Rainbow Bell Adventure, Libble Rabble, Shōnen Ashibe, DoReMi Fantasy: Milon no DokiDoki Daibōken (unless you already have it on the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console, in which case right on!), and Wagyan Paradise (your impressions on this one may vary, but in my book it's one of the best Super Famicom games ever). Have fun with your SFC!

I also got the SNES game Yoshi's Cookie this week, and I think it's really enjoyable. A substantial improvement over Yoshi on the NES (don't take this the wrong way, Game Freak, I still like you as a developer; but honestly I feel that Bullet Proof Software has got the upper hand as far as Yoshi-themed puzzlers are concerned).

@Tasuki Actually, the Super Famicom can play SNES carts... if you carve a rectangular hole in the game slot. I tested it and was able to play the SNES cart you see pictured.

@Starboy Thanks for the recommendations. Definitely interested in the Disney games, alot of great gems came from those IP's. Also want some Twinbee/Parodius action but does any game from the snes series have co-op? I'm looking for the perfect sh'mup for playing with a buddy so it's that or Gradius 3 for me. Also, I'm Looking out for Demon's Crest, Metal Warrioirs, Super Castlevania 4, Hagane, Run Saber, MM X 1-3, MM 7, MM&B and off course Chrono Trigger.

@Karakato - yep, both TwinBees for the Super Famicom support co-op, so you're set there! As for Parodius, I know that Gokujō Parodius - Kako no Eikō o Motomete can be played with co-op simultaneously (as opposed to alternatively like its predecessor Parodius Da! Shinwa kara Owarai e or the SFC version of Jikkyō Oshaberi Parodius, though there's that option here too). I haven't played the latter, if only for the fact that I'm rather hesitant about that one (which says a lot considering how much I adore the insanity that are the other two Parodius games).

Just bought a minty fresh GCN Purple controller off eBay because i wanted to replace my jet black GCN Controller. When you go GCN, you gotta go indigo! It's what makes that tiny little cube of wonders look so special. Besides, the GCN console that i own itself is indigo, so i obviously want it to match. Nothing special here boils & ghouls! And far from retro, at least in my eyes along with everybody who is in their mid to late 20's and onwards.

@Karakato
Very nice! Glad to see that you finally came to your NeoAnime senses and snagged yourself an SNES. Those UK/Jpn SNES controllers are just another reminder of how bland the 'purple' buttoned NA ones that were unleashed outside of Japan and the UK. And i really need to get on Yoshi's Island, now that my retro set up is finally complete(my Vintage VCR player just popped in the mail yesterday tee heet)...Knowing me, i'll get it before Mega Man 7 since the price tag doesn't even hit half of what MM7 costs haha.

I guess I'm trying to cling to the fact that i still have one classic mega man console game left to play. sure i experienced a teeny bit of 7 during it's release, but i haven't full-on tackled it yet outside of the Intro+cloud man's stage.

@Karakato: That's interesting I never knew that.

Ya the only region protection the SFC/SNES and the n64 had were plastic tabs on a small tray on the cartridge slots ,so region moding them is super easy, just take out the tray or/and use a dremel and grind down the tabs.

@ogo79 off course it should be. A Co-op Ninja gaiden style action game made by Atlus is sure to get my attention. At least it could be cheaper than Hagane, another NG type game I'm seeking.
Okay, I'm set on some action games, shooters and RPG's. Are there any obscure horror games I should look out for the SNES?

I think the horror games were only released in Japanese.
(I'm assuming by horror, you don't mean something like The Tick, a beat-em-up that will leave you in horror that humanity could make such an abomination. )

Also, recently picked up Brawl Brothers since the price was too good to pass 'em up.

@Ryno: Nice purchases there dude. I remember playing Brawl Brothers back in the 90's when I would rent it from the local video store chain. BTW not sure if you know this but by pressing B, A, X, Y at the white screen with the Jaleco logo until it disappears, you'll arrive at a glitched screen. Now, press Start, then Down three times and Start again. You'll be at the options screen and when you exit, you'll see the Japanese title screen. Now start your game and enjoy the Japanese version of the game.

I found this weird pirated DBZ game for the SNES while i was digging around in my brother's old tote.
No DBZ games were ever released in North America back then.

@Tasuki: Thanks Tasuki, I have heard about the code but haven't tried it though I will sometime.

On another note I just saw that Timewalk is no longer taking orders. Good thing I just put my order in for Secret of Mana 2 and Terranigma last week!
