@WaveBoy I never would have, lol. It's mine now though, it actually still has it's original plastic wrapper that it came in, too. One day I'll have a room where I can set up a collection and might put the mat to use. For now, it'll stay wrapped up and packed away. It is kind of cool at least, for a floor mat. Heh.

Heh, got that game last year. Bought it as soon as it was listed on a site. Next time I saw the site relist it, it was closer to the ebay price. :D

back in the day when i was a younger vampire hunter i used to get this toy frequently. i think i had glo bones around 3 or 4 times throughout my childhood.
definitely one of my favorite toys holding sentimental value i ever had and thats saying a lot. i remember getting him for around 3 or 4 dollars at the store back in the 80's.
these past few years i have been checking him out on ebay looking into getting him again and adding him to my game room...ebay was asking around 90$ for an opened one. i used to think it would be awesome to find one at a garage sale...but today it happened...i found him on top of a garbage can. complete with all his weapons and all. to anyone who knows of this particular toy you know it is the best one in the whole series.

So two Sundays ago (16th) I imported two Nintendo 16-bit games: one SFC game from Japan and one SNES cart from Europe (a first). Since the latter hasn't arrived as I type this (hopefully it'll turn up this week), I only got the former. The SFC game I got was Super Bomberman 3, and while I won't say I'm a big Bomberman fan (I do like the NES original, Bomberman '93, and the platforming spin-off Bomberman Hero to a point) I have been itching to try some more in the series lately. And from what I've played, it's good, imo. Very colorful with catchy music, I like the way that it plays and the fact that there are varying animal helpers (one of them even jumps). I haven't finished it yet (I'm up to the boss battle on Planet 3), but I'm having fun with it atm. :) As we speak, this is the only chapter in the Super Bomberman quintilogy (or saga, to be more proper, as there are five iterations), but if I'm in the mood I may take into consideration experiencing another one of these (whether it be any one of the two previous games that did get a Western release, or whether it be any one of the two latter games that have remained Japan-exclusive). Who knows?

As for the PAL cart, I think I'll reveal its name once it comes, but if it doesn't come soon I may share what it is in a future post. What I will say about it is that it's a PAL-exclusive.

There's a couple PAL-exclusive SNES games I've wanted but avoided because they're a bit more of a pain to get working on an NTSC console than Japanese games (and I hear in general PAL SNES games are more expensive).

For about $15 and shipping, I got General Chaos for Genesis, complete. Wanted to try it after hearing it's one of the better somewhat-obscure games. I'm guessing that was a good price. :)

I'm still kicking myself for selling my Mint US CIB copy of Jack Bros for $100, which is now going for over $400. Should of plunked that sucker in a plastic box and buried it in Kevin's backyard within the soily' depths of VideoLand!

Well I got a chance to sit down and try out the Dreamcast I bought everything works fine and I played some Sonic Adventure. So I guess time for what I think since I have never played a DC before.

OMG!!! The graphics, the voice acting (as bad as it is but that's not what I am getting at it's just the amount), the soundtrack to Sonic Adventure I can say I can see what all the hype is about this machine. Honestly if this system had the support and the library that the PS2 had Sega probably wouldn't have probably left the console industry. This thing at the time of the PS2 release clearly blows the PS2 out of the water. While I am not saying that the PS2 was bad the DC clearly at the time of the beginning of that Gen was miles ahead of Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft.

Now to get a few more games.

Preordered Dennis the Menace (the cartoon), Volume 1 on amazon when I ordered a couple PS3 games, Catherine (which I hear is good despite adult content) and Sonic Generations (something cheap to make the free shipping limit).

Very Cool, i completely forgot about that cartoon, I used to watch it frequently here and there growing up. Wasn't exactly one of my favorites per say, but it was definitely in the mid-tier level of Wavey's Cartoony picks of the golden age Vintage litter. B-) I actually picked this up a few weeks back >

DuckTales as we all know was DuckTastic, but i always favored Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers! Don't get me started on how irritating it was trying to rent the NES game at my local video Store during it's release! Took me weeks before getting my hands on it.

Also...A pile of Vintage Super Mario, Legend of Zelda and Kid Icarus 1989 stickers. ;) I scored big time, Captain N 'king hippo' for the Willy wonka win baby. B-)

And finally, A retro 1986 MAC Tonight Mcdonalds Coke cup. It was either this, or a california raisins mug. Either way you can't lose. ;) My 80's Cup/glass/mug collection is coming along quite nicely tee hee.

I went to the Mall today and grabbed Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 for $9 each. They didn't have the first one, though, so I'm still waiting on Capn_Pancakes to tell me if he sent the first DKC so I can send him the money.

Tried both games out, and DKC2 made the best first impression out of the trilogy. A lot of the charm and the first two levels were very well designed. The third game is kind of blah in comparison. Something feels missing, but it's still really making an effort in some areas. It's sort of feeling more like DK64/Banjo-Kazooie in that there's a ton more to collect, inventory, a world map you can sorta move around in. It's definitely worth the purchase at least.

@Scarhino89 - good luck with that game! You'll need it, believe you me.

Remember fourteen posts ago (2,866) when I mentioned that I also ordered a PAL SNES game? Well, good news: it's arrived yesterday! :) My first European SNES game ever, and it works on my Retro Duo (that's a plus). The game I ordered weeks ago was: Super Morph, and it's not bad, imo.
