@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!

yeah all that was left for me to get was that cocoron poster.
this isnt the first time they shut down. they were working on just taking orders from past customers only, thats not very smart.
thats like me not taking money from someone to go on a date with me. i turn down no one, for i am not shallow. there is other places to still get those kinds of games though...btw-ive been pondering the rushing beat trilogy...what do you think of the 3 games? i compare all beat em ups to streets of rage series.
ive been considering the rushing beat games and perhaps sonic blast man 1 and 2...

@Ryno - you ordered Secret of Mana 2 and Terranigma? Awesome!!! :) Granted, I only played the Japanese versions of both games (Seiken Densetsu 3 and Tenchi Sōzō respectively), but I guarantee you will have an excellent time with these spectacular ARPGs! :) Two of my favorite 16-bit games of all time!

And while we're on the subject of SoM2/SD3: how do you feel about tremendous replay value? :) Also: how do you feel about long boss battles?

What Timewalk is gone??? :( That totally sucks. I am planning to move in a next month so my money is tied up there and I was hoping to order Secret of Mana 2 from them since I dont read Japanese after the move. Is there someone else like them that I can go to to order an English copy?

@ogo79: Well at least you got the Cocoron poster. There was a boatload of others I wanted to get from there. I have only played Rival Turf and now Brawl Brothers. They are pretty good, I was surprised, though not SOR or FF good. As for that date, I'm still waiting...

@WanderFan91: Thanks, yeah I am looking forward to playing them someday! I absolutely loved Secret of Mana and I still have the whole Qunitet Trilogy to play through along with Secret Of Evermore! :) I absolutely just love the SNES. Glad to hear SoM2 is very replayable and long boss battles don't bother me as long as they are fair. Since you like Japanese Action Adventure games, have you played Ganpuru: Gunman's Proof? @ogo79 recommend that one and I picked that up recently and it seems fun.

@Tasuki: Yeah dude I know, stinks more than an Earthbound scratch 'n sniff right? Something told me to go ahead and order it last week which tnakfully I did. SoM2 cart only

@Ryno - I haven't, but I have been curious about it for some time (given that it's a Western-themed adventure game and a late SFC release since it came out in 1997). I definitely want to play it, though. :( I just need to find a copy of Ganpuru: Gunman's Proof that's not so expensive, is all.

Speaking of Secret of Evermore, I still need to play that one, seeing as I love both Secret of Mana and Seiken Densetsu 3 (Secret of Mana 2). I hear rather mixed feelings about it, but for the longest time I wanted to experience it. Hopefully 2014 will finally be the year that I play it.

Before you play SD3/SoM2, I must warn you ahead of time: when you start your first game, pick a character from the middle column (Kevin and Charlotte), and here is why: depending on which character you make your leader (the first pick) from whichever column, you'll find yourself going on different paths and fight a different series of final boss battles. From what I gather, the easiest final battle occurs if you choose either Kevin or Charlotte, while the hardest will transpire should you delegate the leader as either Hawkeye or Riesz (right column).

Among the few NES mini gameAthons, California Games was probably the most popular and the most enjoyable. I'll admit, I've got more of a soft spot for T & C Surf Design(which i picked up CIB 'n 'sealed')regardless of the ridiculous broken surfing controls. It just hit all the right notes in terms of music, visuals and capturing the SFX in 8-bit form when hitting up the beach. :P Besides the skateboarding wasn't half bad, just boarder line impossible. It's almost the type of NES-experience you'd rather watch or listen to rather than actually playing. ;)

Meanwhile, Snoopy's Silly Sports Spectacular has always left a bitter yet sweet nostalgic taste in my mouth. Nostalgia would be the only reason to pick that one up and i just might considering the price tag is as dirt cheap as Arthur's(of Ghosts 'n goblins fame) dirty medieval underoos. :P

@WanderFan9: Whenever you get around to Secret of Evermore let me know, looking forward to that review becuase you will probably get around it to it before me. And thanks for the tip on SoM2 on who to choose the first time.

@WaveBoy: California was thee coolest place in the 80's. I remember going to Southern California in the summer of '88. Man that was awesome! It was the closest thing to VideoLand here on Earth. Anyway, I still have my original Christmas Fozzie from McDonalds that I bring out every year around Christmas time. Oh, and he is missing a hat in that picture. :)

@Ryno: I still have the Kermit and Miss Piggy as well as Fozzie, and I too bring them out around Christmas time. Every so often I seem them come into my local Goodwill as well. Anyone remember the Land Before Time puppets that Pizza Hut had?

My last "retro" purchase was a rather convincing (superficially, at least) bootleg cart of Final Fantasy V Advance. It was a bit of letdown, considering I've been meaning to play that version of the game for a long time, but at least the seller seemed genuinely apologetic and gave me my money back (not that I spent much on it anyway).

Yeah I had all three of the Muppets stuffed dolls but that's cause at the time my mom was a manager at a McDonalds so I tend to get every Happy Meal toy and stuff like that they offered. Heck I still have a big plastic tote filles with a bunch of them in storage. As for the Land Before Time puppets I only had Littlefoot, Sharptooth and Petrie. Everytime I tried to get the others my Pizza Hut never had them in stock. One of these days I gotta track some down on Ebay. B-)

Best store motto ever. :*

Here's a couple recent pickups of mine: First, since it's been a while ...

Another CIB copy of ET! Total ET count is in my sig. My plan for world domination via ET cart ownership continues! HUZZAH!

Also:

Keystone Kapers (Atari 2600), Blue Label variant.

I've also got a couple more Blue label variant Activision carts (Chopper Command and Enduro) coming, as I continue to get closer to completion of my Activision Atari 2600 collection. Just around 20 games left and i'll be complete, including all variant label editions. The ones I have left aren't super-rare or anything (I already have the rarest of the bunch, River Raid II and Rampage), but some of them will be hard to find.

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong. Also, Lindsey Stirling. Because violin awesomeness.
Current E.T. count: 26 Copies. 2 Sealed, 7 CIB, 3 Boxed, 14 Cart-Only.
