Very nice purchase indeed :p

My latest purchase was a semi-retro one :

Datel's Retro (Famicom-style) Controller (for Wii)
Untitled

It's buttons feel durable. It has been a long time since i had such small (nes & famicom-sized) controller in my hands. The only downside of a controller like this, is obviously, the lack of two analogue sticks that are needed for the N64 VC titles and compatible Wii-titles. Nevertheless, a great controller.

Went to my local Retro store today to look around nothing caught my eye but I did find out that they do have an Ebay page as well. I am not sure how to search by sellers but if you guys want you look for seller: 7734Graham on Ebay.

Not the most exciting purchase but when I can get NES and SNES games complete in box with manual for under $15.00 shipped I am pretty happy. Plus I am sucker for the early SNES games. I am definitely not the biggest shmup'er around but I think they are fun from time to time. It is just good ole' classic old-skool gaming fun. :D

What other games did Irem or Innovations in Recreational Electronic Media make besides the R-Type series and MetalStorm?

80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Actually, one of the Game Boy games was released in Europe, and the PSP game was released in North America.

Corrected, thanks for catching that. I have no idea how I missed the PSP version. It even had a scan of the North American box! :P

I still have a ton of SNES and NES games I would like to get but someday I may want to get some Super Famicom games. Have you heard anything about modifying a North American SNES to play Super Famicom games?

id use a retron3 as it plays super famicom games without the modding and the games are clear...
i wont break my tabs on my mini snes
or i can use a real super famicom
but yeah that method works
its also important to note if you are getting into imports you obviously need to know which games you can play to avoid the language barrier unless you can read Japanese. :)

Its weird they are just plastic tabs on the SNES but I would feel bad about cutting them so I may look into a retron to play Super Famicom games if I exhaust the library of SNES games I want to play. I took Japanese in high school so I can at least read the text, may not know what it means though! haha...

I straight up axed it. I don't know, I would like to have a daily discussion/ QoTD thread retro related but I dont think the retro forum on this site is to popular and it wouldn't be very lively.

I just picked up F-Zero X and F-Zero GX at Slackers. X was $10 and GX was only $8. I've played GX quite a bit in the past, but I've never played X. It should tide me over until Nintendo eventually releases a new F-Zero game.
