I've accepted the fact that i will never own Little Samson.....Never....Well, unless i'm drunk out of my mind with over $700 in the bank and decide to make an ultra stupid eBay purchase of course!

you can alternatively get the famicom cart.
or i can rent mine to you for 3 days, just like back in the days! but shipping to cananda will be 700$
dude, just buy the damn cart

But then i'd have to buy a famicom....aka, Star Screams missing body part.
I'd rather rent it from you for 3 days, but i worry that there will be crusty belly button dorito goop stuck in the pins.

Gun.Smoke (NES) - I love this game; also, i blame @8bitSamurai for mentioning it in chat and thereby making me buy it when i saw it.

That game actually has two different covers. I think yours is the less common (but it didn't seem like it was actually "rare" but if it was I'm sure ogo would find some way to add rare covers to his rare downloads program).
(unless you already knew that and collect cover variants besides just 2600)
Mine is the more common red cover.

Have recently bought an n64 with goldeneye (of course). Also brought an old CRT to play it on. It's great! Gonna get some 4 player Goldeneye on the go tomorrow. And I have WWF No Mercy already on its way in the post

Wait, back up:

You saying Gun.Smoke is a good game? Crap, I saw that for $15 at a store the other day! Dunno when I'll have a chance to go back there, actually...

It's pretty fun. $15 is probably the highest you'd have to pay for it though. It's not too rare so the asking price usually ranges from $5-10.

Pretty fun, the only downside is, perhaps unavoidable control limitations. To shoot anything you have to move to the side and push A or B to shoot at 45 degrees or push them together to shoot head-on (which is kind of uncomfortable to do constantly). The PS2/Xbox port of the arcade version does use three buttons like it should.

I can't believe Silhouette Mirage escaped my tweenage mega mits back when we suffered through that nasty first wave of 32-bit 3D CrazyCringe sauce. Seemed right up my alley too. Oh well, Rayman, Mega Man 8, MMX4, MMX5 & Tomba! were all great 2D fun in the sun.

I have to say, I'm always astonished by Waveboy's vernacular.

Anyways, I bought SaGa Frontier. Again. Guess I got rid of my old copy. Which kind of works out since I thought I was getting SaGa Frontier II, but that's just the case the game is coming in. So now I'm going to have the right game in the wrong box, and now have to be on the look out for a SaGa Frontier case and manual without the disc...

Have I mentioned I hate eBay?

I thought Gunner's Heaven was released on PSN, but it looks like I'm probably wrong.
I must've confused it because there was a PAL version called Rapid Reload but the game I must've confused it with that is on PSN is Rapid Angel (a Japanese-only sidescroller that looks good and is probably worth getting anyways. I checked on what a physical copy would cost me and it was looking like $80 at least. )
I'm sure people have requested someone like Monkey Paw to get Little Ralph on PSN but it looks like that's not happening.

@KingMike gunners heaven is out only in japan, what a surprise.

@ogo79's: Those look like some pretty sweet PS games, to bad my PS and PS3 are not region free for PS games.

So enough about Sony, back to Nintendo:
This one is such a gem, still has the plastic on the box:

And another classic SNES RPG:

It bugged me that the Lufia ad said "your actions determine the outcome of the opening story" (I think that's what was changed to "Battle in the opening story" on the box). It made it sound like you could play an alternate storyline if you lose the intro (which is something you pretty much have to be TRYING to do). But nope, you just get the game over screen and get sent back to the entrance.

Sadly I only have a cart with dead battery (got for like $20 in the early 2000s) and the manual (which cost about the same in the late 2000s).
