Ahhh, Look what I found! Here's the original ANOES game in all of it's glory.

And, apperantly there were two different Freddy games that were planned for the Genesis, along with another one for the SNES developed by Ocean. But sadly none of that happened.

That post was definitely more like a breaker there then compared to my ripple response Wavearoni. BUT, when you equip the Power Glove amazing things happen and speaking of the Glove, for which I got love, I just watched Angry Video Game Nerd’s review of the Power Glove at lunch. Oh man, I have not laughed that hard in such a long time either. Good stuff. Makes me want one though, if I am to have this supposed NES collection how could I not have the Power Glove right? I am sure you got one sitting next to your VHS copy of The Wizard huh?

Well I won’t hold my breath for a review of two of LJN’s finest then. The orig Elm Street game sounded cool, oh what could have been if NOA wasn’t all about being so nice. That was the time where kids were all about _hanging tough and heck, our parents thought video games were going to be our downfall anyway. I think I was to scared to play that game, I could not handle horror movies back then, haha… I remember even Ghosbusters scared me, I would go hide with my pound puppy. Sigourney Weaver was all kinda hot and freaky-deaky at the same time.

Crap I totally lost all the text I wrote after this! What I was saying that I am off in la-la land when it comes to my audio. I got notta. So thank you for the advice. I would love to have an audio system that would make Kid n' Play's House Party jealous. I was looking for something to ask for for my wife and I Anniversary and now I have something, a DTS Master/Dolby True HD 5.1-7.1 HDMI capable reciver, a 5.1-7.1 SS speaker system! Haha... Thanks for the info on how to unleash some killer audio!

That time machine must be working if you picked up some Turtle Pies and Ecto Cooler!

I know I just got a Virtual Boy and all, but I found a copy of Blaster Master for $5! [insert Samus Appearance Jingle] I gotta say, it's a really, really good game. Better even than...The Legend of Zelda!
...not really. But it is fun.

River City Ransom came in the mail yesterday and I've been playing it in my oddly now rare spare time. I've only played it with my little brother. It's a lot of fun and I like it. BARF!!
Also great news:
I bought A Link to the Past!!! It still saves and it was free first class shipping. It should be here tomorrow if not Thursday for sure. I got it for $16.99. So happy.

You know, I have never played River City Ransom, probably a shame too since I hear nothing but good things. I grew up playing Double Dragon so that series would be my first NES beat 'em up choice. Someday I suppose I will get around to getting a copy of River City Ransom.

A Link to the Past, now you are speaking my language. That is number 3 on the Dyno-Ryno off the video game charts list! Great purchase, you may want to think about replacing that battery before you embark on the magical quest through the light and dark world. That is the problem with buying these battery saved games used. you have no idea how much battery juice is left. But having to restart A Link to the Past if the old battery goes out certainly wouldn't be horrible becuase taht game is just to darn good.

I went a totally different style of game for me but for $14.70 shipped i thought I would try it out.

Heck, with Kirby's Return to Dream Land coming out soon and looking totally fun why not go back to Hal's roots and start with Adventure of Lolo on the NES? I didn't play to much of Lolo back in the day, actually only puzzler I played was Soloman's Key.

Expanded the collection by 11. List and justification.
Castelian - owned it before.
Maru's Mission - always wanted to try,
Brain Drain - never heard of it but i'm hoping for puzzles.
Jurassic park - mostly bought it because i hated it when i was young and want to see if it actually is that bad
Yoshi's Cookie - YOSHI!
Asterix + Obelix - i'm a huuuge fanboy of those.
Game + Watch - because i'm still mad for selling my original G+W's when i was 7
Tiny Toons - nostalgia
Alfred Chicken - got it for free.
Heiankyo Alien - recommendation
Mystic Quest - don't need to comment on that i guess.
Going to check them now for functionality now. The first is always the best of the month isn't it?

Some SNES game, GBA games and added another GB Colour to my collection (the translucent purple one).

Let's see:
The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of the Ages (GBC)
Super Mario Bros. Deluxe (GBC)
2 Star Wars Games for SNES
Couple of Genesis games, but I'd have to go look as I can't remember exactly which ones.
Mario Pinball GBA
Another copy of Pilotwings 64 ($5, couldn't resist)

Outside of digital downloads, I think that is about all of my last retro splurge. I did just find out about a new retro game store in my area, and I've got to make it down there and check it out soon.

I got:

Growlanser Generations (PS2) - A Strategy RPG with Character designs from my second favorite character designer.
Shining Tears (PS2) - A Shining game that's kinda like Record of Lodoss War.
Sub-Terrian (GEN) - a unique and brutally hard shooter.
NBA Jam: Tournament Edition (GEN) - The definitive edition of a childhood favorite.
Sonic Battle (GBA) - From what I hear it's Super Smash Bros with Sonic Characters and an Isometric view.

All in good condition for under $40 total.

A lot of games I had been looking for for a long time.

Just made a big WayForward retro purchase:

  • Sabrina: The Animated Series: ZAPPED! (GBC)
  • Sabrina: The Animated Series: SPOOKED! (GBC)
  • Xtreme Sports (GBC)
  • The Scorpion King: Sword of Osiris (GBA)

Also threw in an awesome Disney classic as well:

  • Mickeys Adventure Racing (GBC)

All of these, with shipping, was less than USD$22!

I recently got Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission (GBA), as well as Wario Land 3 for GBC. Fusion was 5 USD, Zero Mission was 10, and Wario land 3 was 8. All of them were totally worth it.

River City Ransom is the Side scrolling beat'em up NES game for me. It's fun and combines the beat'em up genre with RPG elements. It's really entertaining in single player and multiplayer. I haven't played Double Dragon in forever. Once I'm done with River City I'll look into getting it.
The save battery seems fine in my copy of ALTTP. The seller replaced it so I don't have to worry. I'm more worried about replacing it when it does run out. I know how to, but I'm just so nervous I'll wreck the game, lol. It's a great game so far though. Really enjoying it.

WoAaAaAaAaAaAa!!! I had my eyes on this pricey beautay' for quite a while now and i finally decided to throw down the Space cash on this mega 80's whimsical beast of a monster.

It's a massive 32" x 42" Legend of Zelda 80's Cartoon: Fabric Scroll Poster. And i definitly won't be using those lame hangers.

I know hey?
And i think you should just make some room for it haha. It comes in either 16' x 21' which goes for C $21 + $18 for Shipping, or the much larger 32' x 42' going for C $26 plus $18 for shipping. Yet you'd think they'd have a size in between that.

And maybe Ryno might like a little retro CastleV Scroll action as well. lol

@Waveboy: Truthfully that Zelda one would look sweet next my other Zelda wallscroll. One of Link riding Epona with the sunset behind him.

Whaaa? Dude, those are incredible!!!

I'd so get one right now, but I've just gotten a few Retro games and had to put in a Disc order for a couple disc replacements for a Disc Golf Tournament I'm playing in next week, so I've spent enough this week already. Those are awesome though. Great find dude!
