I had also ordered a disc-only copy of Einhander for PS1. AFAIK one of the few PS games Square-Enix hasn't released on PSN. That game is getting expensive.

And @ogo79, i totally see what you meant about the odd cartridge shell used for the repros, with the little "fake" screw thingies. :D

I think it's supposed to be like the "Ys IV" is the background, while the "Mask of the Sun" is in the foreground.
for "Modern Family" fans: like the "Slow Down Your Neighbors" signs that Claire made in that one episode :D

But better than that is the end-label says "Y's IV Mask of the Sun", using the "classic" apostrophe-style spelling that was used on the Master System cart. :D

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.

Some anime mini-game thing called Wedding Peach for the Super Famicom CIB. Shortly after I started to wonder why I clicked that BIN button. At least it was cheap with shipping.

So, I went to a vacation and bought some more retro games from an independent retro game store to give an extra oomph to my collection. I was too lazy getting these games from eBay, so some of the prices appears to be pricier. All prices are in CAD.

  • Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt / World Class Track Meet (4,99$)
  • Vectorman (9,99$)
  • Starfox (24,99$)
  • DuckTales (34,99$)

I also bought T89's 72 to 60 pins adapter for 24,99$, and a Super Retro Trio for 79,99$. The latter plays great with my Genesis and SNES titles so far, as they're perfectly playable. The NES side is kinda broken for some reason, perhaps attributed to a couple of cartridge slot's defective contacts protruding a little bit more. My DuckTales copy consistently works but wouldn't let me swing my cane while still being able to use pogo-attack just fine, my Super Mario Bros. / Duck Hunt / World Class Track Meet cartridge required a little bit of nudging until I get it to work perfectly and my T89 Famicom adapter with Kid Dracula attached on it wouldn't work at all. I heard that the NOAC is the same from many NES clone systems made around 2004 that may struggle to run a good portion of NES library, so there could be also a compatibility issue on my NES/Famicom games. Since I'm still waiting for my RetroN 5 to arrive, that somewhat broken NES slot doesn't bother me too much. I mean, I got 2 great SNES replica controllers out of the box that I could also bring to Hyperkin's latest clone console, and the S-Video output is very nice for both Genesis and SNES.

Those prices do indeed seem quite high.

I can't remember if I mentioned I bought a Scooby-Doo manual (SNES) awhile ago and for some reason with it I got manuals for StarFox (don't have) and Super Mario World (my third copy). If only I had three BOXES for SMW.

At about $14 shipped I bought a copy of California Games II for SNES with box and instructions. Hopefully this is better than a certain OTHER game (and can at least get the pause function right :P ), at least since Pony Canyon wasn't involved with this one, I don't think.

Picked this up for just a few bucks:

NBA Live '95 (SNES)

We used to play the hell out of this game in college (though not as much as NHL '94 for Genny), so i figured i'd grab a copy. My favorite basketball game — though granted the only other game on that list is Basketball for Atari 2600. :D

I realize the other two are probably just as unforgiving but I bought them and not Empire because that is the only one I played as a kid and thus the only one to give me painful memories.
I ordered Rastan for Master System and Animaniacs for Genesis both CIB.
And Micro Machines SNES. So I hear many unlicensed NES games don't work in the toploader (except Tengen which I know works) and I don't know if I'd want to trust the short-circuit method most other companies used to brute-force their way past the lockout chip, so I guess I should stick with a licensed version of the game.

A long time ago there was a moment which impacted me negatively and therefore scared me from trying this one specific RPG series; I won't get into the specifics as to why yet. Looking back, it was a pretty silly reaction, buuuut the past is in the past (you cannot change what happened then). Earlier last year I ordered and experienced Torneko no Daibōken: Fushigi no Dungeon (my tenth Super Famicom game, and the father of the Mystery Dungeon genre which sadly remained Japan-exclusive), and while it wasn't quite as turn-based as the original series it was spinning off of, I found it a lot of fun and enjoyed the replay value, gameplay, and charm (courtesy of Akira Toriyama's style). I will admit that even though I liked this spin-off, I was still hesitant to try any game from the original series (no matter how curious I was) because of the tragic moment that occurred years prior pertaining to the series. That was all changed days ago when I thought: "Screw it, time to bite the bullet and face the inevitable!" So, what game did I decide to play in this turn-based RPG series (which just arrived today)? Why, none other than the premier SFC iteration of the series: DRAGON QUEST V. I did once play a different version of the game, but the less said about that endeavor (cough software pirate victim cough) the better. I've only just started the Super Famicom original and from what I've played it's not bad, and the fact that it came out in the same year as Final Fantasy V makes it very awesome in my book (since FF V itself is awesome). All I've got to say is: I'm glad I decided to give this series a proper chance (despite an ugly start for me back in 2009), and the wait was worth it I feel. :) ............................................................................... I guess what I'm trying to say is that if I start loving this game and decide to play another Dragon Quest as a result (DQ VI maybe), it won't be the DS version that I'll be experiencing. Yes, I know that was a kneejerk reaction that I expressed just now, but I just had to get that off my system.
