@ogo79 Weird, I had a dream of finding a rental shop that only rents rare games (renting was probably how a lot of people played the "rare" games in the first place). Was that the return of the Rare Games Program?

yes. wasnt a dream buddy

@ReaderRagfish
I'll describe it like this, it's almost as close as you can get (back then) to table top D&D, they tried to convert it from the P.C. game, but I really didn't like the battle mechanics, it was the first real time combat I think, so you had to think on your feet, but in battle, you couldn't really tell your characters what to do, it was almost like they acted by pre set rules, you couldn't see who was doing what to who a lot of times and a number of things I could go on about, some good, but it was the combat system mostly that killed it, I think it was also the first game that implemented the once a character died, bam, gone, you had to make new ones to add to the party and difficulty wise, it was a B.I.T.SEE.H. !!!

I only occasionally go back to try to figure out how the Frqck to get past certain things without at least one person dying

This is a correct answer.

@the_shpydar
tis time for you to tell these people of the legendary castlevania 2 story that is legendary. i think about that story a lot.
matter of fact last week.
this story is not for the faint at heart. or pineapple pizza indulgers. i mean frame rate sensitive gamers. same thing whats the difference.

@ogo79 I can't be a smart person who buys Castlevania II since I already have it. Should I sell it to fix that problem of already owning it?

you can buy a second copy and it will make you twice as smart. this effect can be layered

I bought that portable Target-exclusive Oregon Trail that is no longer Target-exclusive today. It's wicked cool, being able to play it whenever I want. For my first game I put 2012 Splinter and the turtles for a trip of a lifetime....and sadly NONE of them made it to their destination. Man. Raph, Leo and Mikey drowned from three separated river crossings (which made me hate rivers). Donnie just died (probably from that fever he got), and Splinter died from Cholera. He literally spent days trying to trade for an oxen but never got one...so his food rations ran out and he got sick and died.

Man. That was really depressing.

Went to a Gaming Expo in town today and picked this up for $10

I have always wanted to get some arcade marquees to decorate my game room with and figured this was a good one to start with. I didn't go to arcades much in my youth but I remember that this 7-11 near my best friends house had a SFII Champion Edition cabinet and everytime I would go over to his house, we would spend most of our time there playing it. So I figured it was only fitting that I started my collection with this one.

Just bought Kain the Vampire, from Japan. In the West it’s called Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. It’s the first game in the series, and IMO the best as it retains that nice, dark and gritty aesthetic (similar to Diablo 2.) The later games start to look too cartoony, plus the voice acting in the first game is some of the finest in gaming.

A PSP 3001 with Mega man Powered up...

unfortunately wavedooder over here on coconut island has experienced bad luck like Donald duck once again! The seller accidentally cracked the PSPs screen right before he planned on sending it to me. So now I have MM powered up in all of its delicous Chibi headed blue bomber glory with nothing to play it on. Sniffles wiffles and waffles. 😢

Waveblender is gonna take a stroll and cruise on down to overpriced eBay lane and see what expensive PSP 3001s they have cookalookin. SUP!
😫🙉

I really need to snag a copy of Ultimate Ghosts n Goblins and Dracula Chronicles X as well. I've already VAMPslayed Rondo of blood years ago on the Wii's most radical-esque Virtual console. But to have a remake of it on the go would be Danny daveeto neato. I've smeared through all of the classicvanias, there's nothing left for me to play other than that spiritual 8 bit knock off bloodstained.

@Ryno knows what I'm talking about 😎 He's the only other NintenCritter on here that speaks Wavian'

@WaveBoy woah dude, that’s totally groovy. I completed Dracula Chronicles X earlier this year and it totally rocked and jammed. Shame about that screen but totally chillex from you to replace the thing yourself, respect man. ✌️

At some point I should learn about replacing a PSP screen. Is it easy to do?
My 2000 long ago somehow got (sun damage?) rings burned into the screen. It's still playable but very ugly, and especially noticeable on bright screens (such as when I played FF1, I remember).

Bought some games at a flea market in amsterdam today.
Ever oasis (3ds)
Bayonetta 1 (wiiU)
Steamworld collection (ps4)
X-men origins: wolverine (ps3)
Burnout paradise ultimate box (ps3)
Bulletstorm (ps3)
The godfather 2 (ps3)

Before anyone says this isn’t retro.
Ps3 turns 13 this year, think about that. (Gosh I’m getting old)

Cannot believe it is almost 20 years since Sony said they were afraid of PS2s being used to build nukes.
