@Waveboy: Lol I had that Bebop figure when I was a kid I also had the one that you can change from a human to the warthog lol.

lol Nice! I never had the changable figure, just the Regular Bebop(which was totaly awesome from the first series. Yet after the 2nd series of TMNT figures, they just kept milking and milking the ninja turtles to the point of total ridiculous.lol Oh look....here comes Slam Dunkin' Leonardo, or Spooky vampire Donatello ect ect. lol

But ya, Leonardo for some reason was always hard to get, I could never find him when i was a kid. But Toys R Us always seemed to be full of Donatello's And Rocksteady's.lol Nobody loved Donatello.....Yet he was always the number 1 choice to be in the TMNT videogames because of his weapons long reach.lol Anyways, I miss my old TMNT toys....The same goes for my Ghostbusters, He-man, Army Ants and Mighty Max figures ect ect.
Casey Jones, Baxter Stockman, The Rat King, Android Krang, The Mousers, Pizza Face ect ect....I miss my old toys! :p

Ahem* But that's where eBay comes in. B-)

Either that or a garage were you can store them in. I still have alot of my old TMNT figures, He-man and Thundercat lol. I just couldnt bring myself to throw them away. And yeah I know what you mean Leonard was always the last of the four turtles that I would get. I had the original Turtles and the Moive star turtles that were made from rubber or something like that and Leonardo was always the hardest to get. In fact when I was younger and my brother and I would play with them we would have to make up adventures that Leonardo was kidnapped or sick or some other reason for him not being there since we didnt have a Leonardo figure lol.

And speaking of TMNT I just picked up TMNT Tournament Fighters on SNES from a retro game shop here in my town. I went there looking for TMNT IV but got that instead lol.

Nice Brooks. I got the whole series a few years ago boy did they bring back the memories although I didnt care for the last season or so they kinda got really weird.

@Oldgames: Heck yeah I loved the pies they had a green filling that if I remember correctly was vanilla custard. The cereal wasnt too bad either which was rice chex with marshmallows.

Hmmmm are we going to have to start an old school TMNT thread so we dont derail this thread any further?

I got Super Smash Bros. Melee, Pikmin, Mega Man Anniversary Collection, and TLOZ: Minsh Cap this weekend as part of Gamestop's buy 2 get 2 free sale!
Minsh Cap was hard to find. Most stores now keep their GBA games behind the counter and will only sell them if you request a specific title. Also the Gamecube games have dwindled from an entire wall, to a half-height rack.

Today I got The 7th Saga for the SNES. I considered buying the game in the past, but I was a bit hesitant back then because of what I've looked up about it (that it gets really, really difficult later on), but I've finally decided to experience it recently. And so far the game is pretty good.
The way that the battles in the overworld shift from top-down to third person perspective via Mode 7 is really cool!

How do I post pictures and videos?

@Starboy I just looked into The 7th Saga it sounds pretty cool. I want it with the box for the fact that on the front of the box it says "WARNING! This RPG may cause Excitement, Shock, Disbelief, Confusion, and complete ENJOYMENT!" How friggin' cool is that?

For images...

You need to type in [img] before the URL.
and then [/img] at the end of it.

For YouTube videos...
Here's an example of what you get when you copy and paste a YouTube URL >

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fMHqEGL-q8

Now delete everything before 'youtube', and delete everything after it up until '6fmHqEGL-q8' Always delete that = sign and replace it with this : And of course add in a left and right bracket as seen here [ ] and that's it.....But if you click reply to this message you can see how i did my Flash man YouTube video in the URL, and whalla easy as ice cream. B-)

@waveboy. Thanks for the how-to. I am all over this from here on out.

Here is the box for the The 7th Saga. If anyone else will appreciate the awesome warning on the box I think that it would be you Waveboy!

@tasuki I actually am interested in this game too though I dont remember it from back in the day. I played way to much Street Fighter II during the SNES. This may be one of those games that I would purchase complete instead of VC because the box is just covered in all kinds of awesome sauce! Is there a thread for favorite game boxes?

I never actually saw the back of the box until now and that is amazing terrible!
That upper-right screenshot is one reason you will have resist the urge to destroy the cart. :D
Seriously though, it is one frame of a spell that will attempt to kill both your characters (and thus game over) in one shot. But even without that, getting mauled in a single turn will become common because Enix (intentionally or not) made the players get lower stat gains at level-up than the Japanese version, resulting in your characters constantly being much weaker than they're supposed to be.
But I still finished it once, so it's doable.
I did find one enemy in the game, a Silver Brain. It'll try to run away, but it's worth a ton of experience if you kill it before it does. I think I once gained like 30 levels in an hour or two grinding on it. Revenge on the broken stat curves! :) The game pulls one mean surprise near the end and it'll make you glad you did.

I thought the graphics were too repetitive, even by 16-bit standards. The Mode 7 effect on overworld fights is cool, but the world has some serious vegetation problems. It seems to be mostly mountains and deserts, and only an occasional patch of grass. I was also disappointed that there's only one "background" used for all non-overworld fights. I mean, even with you fight the other characters, in towns, in daylight, and you still the "spotlight on stone in otherwise complete darkness" background. :P
I mean, since almost all dungeons were caves or towers, they could've at least made a couple palette-swapped background images.

I bought Medabots: Metabee version AX, Shaman King: Master of Spirits, and Digimon: Battle Spirits all for the GBA yesterday. I didn't realize the Medabots game was the AX version till I bought it. I've only played it for about an hour and I don't like it so far. I was expecting something different. The Shaman King game feels like a quick side-scroller made to cash in on the anime's success.(I wasn't expecting anything more then that.) The Digimon game is actually pretty fun. I bought it on a whim since the Medabots game was only $3 and the SK was only $4.(I thought they were both $9.) It's obvious this game was meant to be played with friends not solo,but I can get some enjoyment out of it. Overall 1 meh game,1 bad game, and 1 game I actually liked and will come back to someday.

I remember playing Tournament Fighters on the Genesis, but why do i have the feeling that the SNES version was superior? :p That was usually the case with every multiplatform game between the SNES and Genesis aside from Disney's Alladin. lol

As for the TMNT toys, did you have the Technodrome or The Turtle Wagon? Hell, I remember having that crazy turtle ooze stuff and sliming my friends with it at Chuck E Cheese. lol and speaking of Chuck E Cheese, that place was amazing back in the late 80's and early 90's. :D

@Waveboy: Yea the SNES game was better than the Genesis version but the weird thing is with TMNT Tournament each version is different with its own storyline and characters. Really I plan to get each version the NES and the Genesis versions are next on my list. You can probably look up TMNT Tournament Fighters on Wikipedia and see how each one is different.

I never had the Technodrome or the Turtle Wagon my friends did though. The only vehicles I had was the sewer dragsters and a giant bee lol. I do remember the slime too but my parents wouldnt let me get it cause they didnt want my brother and I to get it all over the house which looking back I am sure we would have lol.

As for Chuck E Cheese I never really liked that place even when I was a kid, but than again where I grew up I had 3 mini golf parks in my area with awesome arcades and I didnt have to put up with bad pizza :P.
