@Pianomanfreak - it's funny how Pac-Man World would make an appearance on the Game Boy Advance five years after its PlayStation One debut (that is quite a time gap). Only played the PSX original, but I looked up that some features were left out in the GBA port.

As for my latest retro purchase, today I got the Japanese Game Boy cart Tokyo Disneyland: Fantasy Tour. Funny thing: when I saw the Tomy logo on there, I thought (since they published a 16-bit Tokyo Disneyland) after having seen some platforming images on Google: "Oh, I guess this must be a little in league with the Super Famicom game Mickey no Tokyo Disneyland Daibōken; I'm cool with that, as it's really a good game." But upon playing I realized it really wasn't, which had me absolutely floored. So I Googled "Game Boy Tokyo Disneyland" (since you can't trust Wikipedia to keep track of every single thing, even Japan-exclusive Disney games) and I discovered another one. There are two Tokyo Disneyland games for the Game Boy? I don't believe it! Oh well, I guess I can't complain as the game I got is not too bad (it's just very different as it's a series of mini-games): plus any classic Game Boy game that's Super Game Boy compatible is okay with me (unless it's a piece of crap like Toy Story for the Game Boy). Currently the Game Boy Tokyo Disneyland platformer isn't on eBay (from what I Googled it's the one with the green banner while the mini-game Tokyo Disneyland has a yellow banner), but if it pops up hopefully I'll be able to attain it, as I am curious as to how the balloon mechanics would've functioned outside the Super Famicom.

I just bought a vintage 1980's Unicorn sticker from our very own ogo79, but i had to fight for his double, and boy was it trouble. He has quite the My little pony and unicorn sticker collection. it would make any Samurai Pizza kitty blush in Dwacula delight.

One thing The Never Ending Story taught me is that unicorns(er horses, sigh) are awesome.

Last buying spree
Outrunners and Shadow Dancer for Genesis, Swords and Serpents and Dash Galaxy for NES, GearWorks and Daedelion Opus for Game Boy from a store. All loose.
Looking up Outrunners arcade footage. WOW that game's fast. If there was once racing game besides F-Zero GX that could nearly give me motion-sickness, that's probably it. Not surprising the Genesis isn't going to come close to that frame rate, especially with always split-screen.
Advance Guardian Heroes new and Car Battler Joe CI from amazon. Surprised AGH is so cheap. Did they just make a ton of them and nobody wanted them (I can remember back in the day when unwanted copies of Gunstar Super Heroes were just sitting in Best Buy and GameStop for like $10)? Though Joe was not cheap. Seems like a decent game though. Some predict it another future-rare game.
Scooby-Doo SNES C and I from ebay. I hear this is among the license games that doesn't suck.
Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers SNES loose. Average beat-em-up (typical Natsume quality: kind of fun but not super-great) but the price does seem to be on the rise.
Surprised to see one seller list Ninja Ryukenden GB and, under $20, it's not quickly sold. I'll take care of that. (so I heard that is another game that is uncommon for any version) Some says its actually a sequel to Shadow of the Ninja that Tecmo bought and rebranded. It certainly seems like it.

Scobby-Doo Mystery on the SNES is okay, it's not really that great (it's harmless). The inspection and non-linear level structure was neat, but it could've been a lot longer. I would've liked more than just four missions. Sound and visuals are awesome, though, faithful to the TV series.

My latest and greatest is....a NES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $7, at a thrift store with one game inside (City Connection) cost me about $40 more to get AV cables, AC adapter and a controller and one more game (3-1 Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, and World Class Track and Field). System works, but I'll need to get the 72 pin connector fixed one of these days usually I have to jiggle the cart around to start a game. A temporary fix, but one I can live with for now. Overall, easily one of my best purchases so far this year

Formally Square-enixFan, Neo-GeoFan. A lover of fine games and handheld systems!!!!!!!!!!
The New 3DS XL is amazing, soon the NX will be upon us!

Grabbed Odama on Gamecube for $4. Turns out the Mic is just the Gamecube mic Mario Party 7 came with, so I bought it without the mic at a discount.

After mulling over it for months I decided to buy a lot of Suikoden Games. I got Suikoden I-V and tactics for ps1/ps2.

It's not really retro yet, but I did snag copies of Super Mario Sunshine, and Luigi's Mansion for the GameCube. Trying to build up my GCN collection before the prices start to get out of hand.

I also did this about a month ago, got both of ebay (stupidly sold them when I got a Wii in 2007).

2 days ago, My brother purchase Banjo-Kazooie from the Retro game store that's located in Suffolk, Virginia. We both enjoyed it, BUT my latest purchase with my own MONEY is X-men Vs. Street Fighter for the Sega Saturn (Although, my Saturn is a USA version, I got myself an old version of action replay 4mb Plus, it allows to play imports, obviously have cheats, and have more room than a saturn can.) We both played matches together, and it was Excellent. That means I'll have to ask my parents later about the new version of Action Replay 4MB plus, and order it from Play-Asia, because I'm planning to get Vampire Savior, Marvel Superheroes vs Street Fighter, Pocket Fighters, and even King of Fighter '96 or '97.

I actually got this last week, but never got around to posting, so here's an ACTION SHOT!

Ys V: Kefin, Lost Kingdom of Sand (SNES) - Fan-translation reproduction cart that i found randomly on eBay, got it for a few bucks less than the few repro sites that have it. I've already completed it; it's very short and easy. Still a good game, but one of the lesser entries in the Ys series.

I've also ordered the fan-translation SNES repro cart of Vs IV: Mark of the Sun, but i'm still waiting on that one. I may also grab a copy of Ys III: Wanders from Ys for SNES even though i have the Genesis version, just so i can have all three of Ys III - V in SNES form.

She-Ra is awesome. If you believe otherwise, you are clearly wrong.
Urban Champion is GLORIOUS.

Ys V is the entry that plays less like an Ys game and strays from the series formula drastically (plays more like an unofficial sequel to Brain Lord than anything else); I agree that it's a good game, but I don't think it's the best iteration in the SFC/SNES. [For me] That would be Ys IV: Mask of the Sun, which is an awesome game that goes back to the roots of Ys Book I & II; if you liked those two, then you'll love the fourth entry, the_shpydar. Final boss takes a few tries to defeat though. Ys III: Wanderers from Ys has got great music on the SNES, and like Ys IV, the final boss will be quite a challenge at first (it's different than in the other versions).

I don't know about other versions, but in the second dungeon there's one spot where you can VERY EASILY farm EXP. Just stand there and hold your sword as birds that want to die fly into it. As long as you remember to go out when you need to heal, I recall it didn't take TOO long to get max EXP.
Though the later dungeons will still PWN you.
I do not own any version of Ys3 currently (unless you want to count Oath in Felghana, maybe I bought that on PSN but I can't remember) but I do have Ys 4 SFC and both versions of Ys 5, all CIB (only to find out that one really should not as the Expert version packaging, perhaps to be expected, only differs by the cover art for the manual/box. Better to get CIB normal and loose Expert if you want.)

KingMike

StarBoy91

I own Ys V Expert in CIB, and that's the only version of Ys V that I played; I hear that it's a little more challenging than the original version, but I don't know by how much. I did like how you could change the color of Adol's shirt, armor, and eventually his hair (it brings out a lot of variety).
