I don't think I'm interested in selling, sorry. (I see the same seller has another copy for $71 and shipping. I'd link in a PM but I'm not seeing such a feature on this forum.)
For reference, the Japanese title is 美食戦隊 薔薇野郎.
I did also order Minna no Tabou no Nakayoshi Daisakusen loose for Famicom.
That's like the third Sanrio Famicom game I have. Because I admit they make some decent simple gameplay. I do not care about the characters.
(this one is two minigames on one cart: one is memory-matching but with enemies and walls and the other is like Yoshi's Cookie but more evil)
And also Popeye for the Famicom. Not Popeye's English but regular Popeye that I could get on the NES if I paid a few bucks more. :D

Okay, if you know the name then the site I got it from was rakuten.
Sorry I'm late in responding. PC got some malware, I hope it's gone now.
(new PS3 not wanting to login to PSN. Tried to log in on Media-Go on my PC to see if I could. No luck and my PC crashed. But I think AND REALLY hope that wasn't the source. :( )

Well last week was good for me as far as retro gaming concerned. I got two import purchases (each game for a different system), and they both are very fun (if not flawed) games. :) First on the line was Jerry Boy for the Super Famicom
Untitled
Yeah, I'm fully aware that this game was released in America for the SNES under the nomenclature Smart Ball, but after having looked up that there were alterations in the transition (like the removal of the intro sequence and the town areas) I decided to go with the Japanese original. Sometimes I believe that it's best to experience a game as it was originally intended to be experienced as opposed to a version producers and/or executives assume is best for the Western audience (though that might just be the purist in me), so that's why I went with Jerry Boy. It's funny how many slime-based games there were in the early '90s (or there are now, really), like the Putty series of games and this one European-exclusive Super Morph. But I'm trailing off, so about Jerry Boy. After years of being curious about this game, all I've got to say is that it's pretty simple yet fun game, imo. It's not flawless, the controls do tend to be sticky and slippery at times (particularly when you dash) and for the most part it's easy but has its good set of challenges, even if it's a bit short; but otherwise I like this game, flaws aside. It's too bad that the sequel Jerry Boy 2 never got a released, because from one of the gameplay videos I've seen on YouTube it looks really good and it looks like an improvement over its predecessor (had it not been for the fact that it took three years to craft it, not to mention the fact that Sony-the publisher-would part ways with Nintendo to create their first PlayStation console in 1994, it probably would've come out, even if only as a Japan-exclusive). So, this 16-bit game was not great, but I do find it to be fun while it lasts. :) Pretty charming, too.

Okay, second game: Mogurānya for the Game Boy classic
Untitled
Again, I know that it was released outside Japan as Mole Mania; but unlike in the case of Jerry Boy where I wanted to experience it as it was meant to be experienced (in my book), that was not the case here. The reason I ordered the Japanese version as opposed to the American version of this game was because of the art on the cartridge. I found it to be rather appealing and cute (despite there being a white space in the background area). It probably would not have made a difference which version I would wind up with here, because all the same it's not that hard to follow even though there's lots of trial and error and requires extensive thinking and consideration to get through many of these screens (in particular the complex ones). I didn't finish the game as of yet, but from what I've played I find it to be tons of fun. I like the variety of the areas and how different each level would look, and the songs are pretty good (though I could do without the annoying constant beeping sound effect whenever you're low on health here). It's lighthearted and charming, it's sort of like The Legend of Zelda, if you replaced Link with Muddy Mole and traded the action/adventure aspect with an adventure/puzzle theme (at least, that's something I noticed while playing this game), only you have to beat it in one sitting. ... Still, really fun other than that, imo! :) Also, it looks really good on the Super Game Boy.

02/13/14 NOTE: Forget what I said about Mogurānya having to be beaten in one sitting. Turns out your progress can be saved: so long as you perform the Game & Watch Gallery method of saving by pausing the game and then turning it off. All I've got to say is: that's such a relief! :)

The only thing I think SmartBall did better was to separate the shoot and dash/stick buttons (L/R and X/Y respectively, whereas X/Y does all of them in Jerry Boy.) A minor annoyance since it wastes ammo so you have to go back and farm some.
Right, you wouldn't even know the story in SmartBall unless you have the manual.
Equinox is another Sony-published SNES game that for some reason is missing ingame story in the English version even though the Japanese and English versions were developed simultaneously (to they point they even co-exist in the code but you can't choose which to play).

Not sure if it's old enough to be considered retro but I am finally getting round to buying "Sid Meier's Pirates!" on steam. The original was my favourite C64 game but the reviews put me off the remake for some reason. After sifting through all the reviews I found enough to convince me that the game was similar enough to the original for me to love it!

I only posted this to get my avatar as the forum's thumbnail.

Just got myself a copy of Mario Golf for the GBC. Fed up of waiting for it to get a European VC release. No doubt it will happen next week now.

Just won Final Fantasy III on ebay having just beat Final Fantasy II. While FF2 is awesome, I hear FF3 is like the RPG to beat all RPGs. Can't wait 'til it shows up.

Votes from the community — do you guys think FF3 is better than FF2?
