Unfortunatly I cant by any retro games cause I dont own any of the old systems anymore. My Super Nintendo was stolen by a roommate about 10 years ago, I foolishly traded in my N64 when the Gamecube came out and my Genesis my brother got since I got the SNES when I moves outta my parents house, and my NES I gave to my mom when hers broke since thats the only video game system she will play. I still have a ton of games for those systems. The oldest system I have right now is a PS2. Right now I am trying to hunt down a Genesis as well as a SNES so I can play some of those games. Some games that I have on cartridges, like Mario Kart, Super Punch Out!! and River City Ransom I broke down and bought again on the VC, while some games like the Megaman series I bought the collection on another system.

Hopefully I will be able to find a Genesis or SNES here soon.

Super Mario Land 2 just came, along with my Super Game Boy (although, sadly, my SNES is broken). I borrowed my sister's GBA, and I love the game! I can't wait to get more Game Boy Classic games! Since I'll be using a GBA, I can also get Link's Awakening DX!

I went into Goodwill today and saw a stack of N64 games sitting behind the glass counter. I couldn't see what they were, so I went and asked the lady if she could open the case. She was being kind of rude, and pages somebody to come unlock it for me. It took a while for somebody to get there, and because the other lady was being so rude I almost decided to walk out. Finally, somebody came and opened up the case, and as I was looking through the stack of N64 games I was shocked to find Goldeneye and Mario Kart 64 for 5 bucks a piece :p I already have MK64 for the VC, but the cartridge goes for a lot more than 5 bucks. Too bad you can't resell or get a refund for VC games lol.

I also picked up Extermination on the PS2 at Wal-Mart for 14.99. That's not a super great deal, it's about what a new copy goes for on Ebay, but I love the survival horror genre and it is a game I had always wanted to play, so why not.

I went a bit nuts the last pair of weekends and between and got a pile of new portable retro goodies. I mean I got for GB: Castlevania Adventure, Revenge of the Gator, Battle Arena Toshinden. On the GBC Megaman Xtreme and Wings of Fury. And on the GBA there's Gradius Galaxies, Mario Kart SC, and I had to replace my GBA with 'brighter' graphite after my pearl blue got wasted and GT Advance came in the unit with that too. Pretty big 'retro' variety there.

Wow 5 bucks for GoldenEye that was a good deal. I got Earthbound for $5 a couple of years ago from the Goodwill in my neighborhood. Since I still have my copy that I bought when the game came out and I couldnt pass up that deal, I decided to give it to my friend for his birthday.

Wow that was nice of you, you probably could have gotten at least 50 bucks for it on Ebay lol

I probably could have but I dont think that way sadly. I just figured I could get it than and somewhere down the road someone would want it and I could at least get my 5 bucks back for it. My friend and I were talking about that game than and he told me that he was looking for it but everywhere wanted like 75 bucks for it. You can probably just picture his face when he opened my present that day lol.

I just bought Bangai-O for Dreamcast from eBay for the nominal fee of £9.99, including postage. I wasn't a huge fan of the DS Bangai-O Spirits but everything's better on Dreamcast (fact) so we'll see how this one goes.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Castlevania: SOTN. It plays well, but a few Final Fantasy games are stopping me from playing. XD

Bought Extreme-G and Blast Corps for $10 each on Friday. I haven't had much free time to play them though.

I feel my mind dissolving around...

I saw StarTropics and Battle Chess both priced at 5$ each, yesterday. But, I skipped out on them. Was that a bad idea? I skipped on StarTropics since I already own it on VC, and I was hoping I could find a cheaper copy of Battle Chess somewhere else. If it was a mistake, I might go back tomorrow and get them.

About 2 months ago I bought a copy of Castlevania: SOTN for only $25 at a used game store. The disk and manual were in good shape but the case was all cracked up and the hinge was broken. Didn't bother me at all though since I have replacement cases, and now the game's as good as new lol.

I also picked up a copy of NFL Blitz for only $4. I usually don't care for football games but I like a good arcade sports game so this was a good buy.

Just found an original SNES at Goodwill for $5. It didn't have the cables necessary to play, but my brother and I tested it with the cords from our SNES and it works fine. Now we have TWO! :)
