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.

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

lol yep, dont try to remove them, i tried one screw, they are decor only. i was told the carts just open up. thats cool though.
when we were talking about those a while back, i forgot to show you how it looked. ah well you see now lol
youll probably end up beating it by this saturday :D

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.
