Yeah TMNT Smash Up was a mystery to me too. I think they were hoping to start another TMNT craze like in the early and mid 90's. The other TMNT game that I played was TMNT based on the CGI movie and that was horrible. Instead of a classic beat em up like the older Konami TMNT games this one was and action/adventure game man it was horrible.

I dont know how the other Konami TMNT games are the ones based on the early 2000 TMNT series so those can be good or bad I dont know. And so far all the Ubi Soft TMNT games are bad.

I got my NES in the mail today! I hooked it up, was a bit of a hassle since I couldn't get the AV cables to work and had to go with the RF switch till I figure out what went wrong.
In the mean time though I played Megaman 2 and Super Mario Bros. I LOVE Megaman 2. It still holds up so well and I'm not saying that with nostalgiagoggles. Playing through the game, the controls were nice and tight and the commands were very responsive. When Ever I died on the disappearing blocks in heatman's stage I knew it was my fault. XD
Super Mario bros. is still as fun to play as ever. A timeless classic for sure. Although I prefer it in small bursts.
This is one the best purchases I've ever made!

FINALLY! I get to play my Virtual Boy! It's really cool, but I urgently need more games (It only came with Mario's Tennis). I have my eye on Virtual Boy Wario Land...

When all else fails, eat a taco.

Good choice on the Wario Land easily the best game on the Virtual Boy. Also I suggest Mario Clash and if you are a fan of Star Fox check out Red Alarm.

Damn make me want to dig out my Virtual Boy from storage now.

Good pick up on the Virtual Boy if you can really get into it despite the small library and keep with it, I can't though which is why I parted with mine. I hope you enjoy the 14 games you an get for it, there's some great Japanese stuff beyond that but some of it gets just downright ugly expensive, but if you got the budget there are some true gems like Insmouse House and SD Gundam War. With the American stuff I can't think of any not really worth recommending at some level, well Waterworld sucks, but pretty much everything else is worth having. Pinball has a good selection, boxing is fun and uses the pad well for punching, Golf has a nice sense of depth with good courses, Panic Bomber makes for a great puzzle experience, and Nester's Funky Bowling is good for some nice bowling play and laughs. Beyond that I think Red Alarm, Mario Clash, Wario Land, and 3D-Tetris are a given for good stuff.

DS games doesn't count as retro games yet, does it? XD
Well, I can't remember then. I guess it's a GBA game.
Loved playing with my GBA years ago.

It's a conspiracy, I tell you.

If Konami doesn't release this bad boy on the Wii's VC, i'll have no choice but to snag myself a Genesis off eBay...This is the only traditional Castlevania game I haven't played, and it's irking me that Konami is taking their sweet time to release it.
How long as it been since they've rleased Rondo of Blood again? Over a year right?

As for the Genesis, i honestly have a mix of good and bad memories with it. Not too sure i wan't to get myself one....Again.

Congratulations, you very smart man you! The NES is just a wonderful thing to have and a great thing is that it goes well with everything in your house so you never have to worry about it clashing with anything Did you get your AV cables working?

@Waveboy: Rondo of Blood came out on the VC March 15, 2010.

Truth be told I am tire of waiting to see if great games like Castlevania Bloodlines will ever come to the Wii VC so I just saying F*** it and buy the original carts if I can find them for a good price.

Just ordered some more Famicom games, including bad games Athena and Garfield.
From what I remember of the last time I played Garfield, it was a rather generic platformer with Garfield collecting invisible power-ups, including the key you have to find to be able to finish the level. And that despite the game being made in 1989 (when his design was pretty much final), Garfield is drawn like the 1978 comics. And I remember the graphics looked like they came from an Atari system.
I'm not sure why even loose FC Athenas are always listed at $20+. Are they seriously that much rarer than the NES version (which is worth like $3)? I'm sure completes are worth something since there was some audio cassette, maybe the soundtrack to the game's weird platformer/shmup sequel, Psycho Soldier. Saw a boxed one without the tape go for like $40 auctioned on ebay a few months ago.
But I got them both for a copy that's sorta like getting two for the price of one. Looks like Garfield's getting harder to find
Also got better games Kid Niki 2 and Fuzzical Fighter.

I bought my first game for the NES since I got it. Punch-Out!! for $13.49 at Play N Trade!
The game was a bit of trouble in the beginning because it wouldn't work. I was worried since before I even put it in the first time I cleaned the contacts. After some blowing it worked just fine. I love it. It's the classic I remember. It's so much fun, but so punishing as it goes on. I'm currently on the third title bout where you have to fight Piston Honda again. So far I'm stuck on the rematch with Bald Bull. Great game and I saw most copies go for $14 on ebay so not a bad deal either.

@Ryno.
lol. Ya, i'm not a big fan of the first TMNT Nes box art either..I only knew the Turtles from the 80's/90's cartoon series, so i had no idea what in the hell was up with all of those rapheal lookalikes on the cover haha. And I'd totaly be all in April Oneil's bitchin' Banana ramma jump suit. And I know I know, Im suprised i haven't fired up TMNT III either. I guess I'm kind of just waiting for the perfect moment. Yet a soon as I get around to getting a smaller Tube SDTV CRT at around 27" then I'll be all over my NES & SNES. I'm deing to play titles like Double Dragon II & III, TMNT III, Kickle Cubicle, Battletoads and the like.

And speaking of Double D!, I just picked this baby up online.
Untitled

A favorite of mine as a child, and I totaly dug it in the arcades especially.....That devlish tricky part in the 3rd stage where you have to hop over that bridge without getting nerfed by the punk dudskie that was waiting right at the tip of the other side of the bridge jump was pure 8-bit balls to the wall torture! I never came close to seeing the end of Double D as a youngster, but flash forward to today, and well...I had my oh so sweet revenge with Double Dragon on the Wii's VC during last December Christmas. And while the challenge was grueling i stuck with it and to my suprise I finally beat it. Another crazy satisfing and rewarding feeling due to the games reDUCKulously tough challenge.

But hey, i learned how to be like Bimmy(lol) & jimmy and knock sexy hookers with whips out with style.
And who doesn't love this track?

@Ryno: @Waveboy: I think the reason for all the red headbands on the orignal TMNT game was cause in the comic the trutles all wore the same color headband. It wasnt till the first cartoon series that they gave each turtle there own color so kids could tell them apart.

Exactly, but I never knew about the original Comic series during that time since i grew up on the more light hearted and funktastic 80's/90's cartoon series. I think it was a stupid move anyways giving them all the original RED bandana's considering the game was based on the cartoon and the Turtles themselves were wearing their trade mark Blue, Red, Orange and Purple bandana's 'again' like in the cartoon series in the actual game. So why would the Artists resort to the mold of the original Comic series?

It probably confused a lot of kids, But at least they got it right with TMNT II: The Arcade game's Box Art, which kicked the first game's turtle buns.

Chip 'N Dale: Rescue Rangers in full Cartrdige force.
This will be my last Retro purchase for a while, since i now wan't to put most of gaming cash towards Wii and 3DS titles....Ah who am I kidding, i can't resist.

Untitled

Not exactly up to par with DuckTales, but it's still one of the NES greats, and it was definitly one of the most toughest NES games to rent at my local video store aside from TMNT II: The Arcade game. I ended up playing this one at one of my friends house, since the local videostore took forever and ever to get it back in due to some youngster punk who kept it in over due....His mom was probably racking in the late charges, but that didn't stop little Tommy from gettin his Chip 'N dale Nes 8-bit Fix.lol
