I can sincerely say that after having received and played VB Wario Land, that game is a reason to buy a Virtual Boy. It's that good.

The ever so latest addtion to Ryno's retro collection is a rather safe choice. I actually still have the gold game pak originally from when I was a sweet child of the 80's however some of the gold is chipped off the cartridge and it is the newer white Nintendo Quality of Assurance seal. I also do not have the manual, box or the map so the game just felt incomplete to my fastidious self especially when compared to my other NES games so that is why I got this 1st edtion of The Legend of Zelda complete.

Thanks Tasuki, I take it you are a big old school Zelda fan ;) I am looking forward to finally beating the The Legend of Zelda.

@oldgamesonly: Never played Castlevania Chronicles but I need to get that to add to my Castlevania collection.

@Retro_on_theGo: I have no idea what you are talking about about with VVVVVV. :D haha..

@Ryno: Oh yeah Zelda is one of my favorite series. I have The Legend of Zelda. Zelda 2, and Ocarina of time all in the Gold edition. :D The only one that wasnt CIB was The Legend of Zelda cause I got that one at Goodwill for 3 bucks a few years ago. Sadly I can say I have never beat The Legend of Zelda all the way I'd get half way through the second quest and I would get bored of it or another game would come up. Maybe one of these days I will beat it lol.

Alright, one of my best days of retro purchases today!
I bought Double Drangon and Journey to Silius for only $5.50! :D With shipping it was only $8.49. I can't wait to play both. Journey to Silius is such an underrated classic and Double Dragon is timeless. Although River City Ransome is my favorite beat'em up on the nes DD is great too.
I also bought.... Goldeneye 007 for the N64 CIB! Only $14, $17 with shipping. :) There were a few better deals but I got out bid on one and the other turned out to have stickers on the back of the cartridge. Overall great day for retro collecting.
I'm gonna head to the flea market and get 2 N64 controllers. I remember seeing some with good analogue sticks. Then I'll invite people over and have a 64 party! smash bros. and Goldeneye! Oh yeaaah. B-)

@Retro: Nice purchases there as well. I remember seeing Journey to Silius back in the day on the shelf of my local video store but I never did rent it. I heard a rumor a while ago that it was suppose to be a game based on the first Terminator movie but at the last minute the Terminator licenses was pulled from it.

I have to agree with you on RCR and DD. RCR was always my favorite beat em up on the NES with DD coming in a close second. It cracks me up still to this day when in RCR you fight the twins in the school and they have the DD theme in the background a nice little nod there to DD.

Let me know when you have that GoldenEye party and I will be right over with the bean dip ;)

If you're an old school Castlevania fan, you'll love it! Plays like the NES Castlevanias, with 16-bit style graphics, and some incredible music! Tough-as-nails later on (especially original mode). Very underrated for being as good as it is (almost never mentioned, actually). Maybe because it was more of a limited release. It's definitely one of my favorite Castlevanias! Enjoy!

@Ryno
God, I loved that map that came with The Legend of Zelda. Indispensable when you're starting the game! And I loved the blank top corners of the map. Made it so suspenseful, wondering what was so important up there that they couldn't show it! ;) My 23+ year old map was in tatters last I saw it, held together by tape. :P May've dissolved by now... God, why, WHY don't they include things like that with games anymore? Yeah, I know, I know. Money. Doesn't make it right though.

Yeah, Sunsoft originally had the terminator license but lost it last minute to...LJN. /shudders
The game was pretty much finished though so they thought it would be a waste to just forget about the game. So they changed the main character got rid of the terminator parts and made Journey to Silius. It's a shame people are dumb enough to take away a movie game license and give it to LJN.

@Ryno
VVVVVV is a great indie game! :D
I don't blame you for not knowing about it. It's a game where you don't jump. You control gravity to walk on the floor or ceiling. You use the shift in gravity to get past obstacles. It has some awesome chip tune music and it has an exploration element a bit like Metroid. It's coming to the eShop so if you ever get a 3DS you should definitely buy it! You can also buy it in The Humble Indie Bundle but I'd get it for the 3DS just for the actual buttons.

@FluttershyGuy: Yeah I am looking forward to that map and using it because I have not played The Legend of Zelda in years! :D I used to be content with just the game, box, and manual now I want to collect all the cool and fun additional inserts like groovy maps and funky enemy charts. Sorry to hear about your copy, at least you got some good use out of it though! You are most definitely right, before the Internet the pack-in maps and guides were indespensible. I know all my Dragon Warrior bonus guides and maps were and they are still in decent condition. :) Some new games still include maps though for example Red Dead Redemption but it is nowhere near the same level as The Legend of Zelda. I still need to get the A Link to the Past map.

@Tasuki: You going to complete your copy of The Legend of Zelda sometime? I am looking forward to getting to and taking on taht 2nd quest someday. Heard it was a good challenge! :D

@Retro_on_theGo: VVVVVV sounds like an interesting game and if I ever get a 3DS (to use athe ctual buttons of course ;) ) I would be interested in looking into it some more. Nice purchase on Double Dragon and Journey to Silius. I recently got Double Dragon and might be playing that tonight :) Let me know how Journey to Silius is, I keep an occasional eye out for that one. Oh and Goldeneye N64 -nice. If I had a N64 I would be right there with you on picking that up CIB :D

I feel like there's going to be some spooky Retro Halloween purchases in the bat infested goulish future for this Halloween October. :D Anybody else gearnig up for some Horror Retro loving just in time for Halloween? B-)

I swear that Waveboy is psychic! ;) Boy oh boy do I have some spooky retro Halloween purchases! B-)

First up is my most favorite game ever! It has taken me to long to actually get this one (have it on VC and rented it as a kid never actually owned it). As Waveboy mentioned the guano from the bat infested future has been my biggest hurdle but I have come through unharmed for the most part. This copy is the "Made in Japan" version not that lame Majesco B&W manual and cheaper cartridge release. Also included with it is that oh-so important poster which will be great for our upcoming most excellent Castlevania themed Halloween party! B-)

But I am not done yet with my Halloween spooky theme retro games. I also got this one in some sweet near mint condition with all the inserts! Never played this but the spooky skeleton/grim reaper just gives me 8-bit goosebumps! Looking forward to this little clicker. :D

Here is a shot of the awesome grim reaper thing I was referring to eariler (never played it so it may not be the reaper?).

Does Bit Trip Saga count? If not, I guess Minish Cap would now be considered retro.

@Retro: Its probably because in the end LJN offered more money. Its was good to see that Sunsoft didnt cancel the game when they lost the license. I dont know how many cool sounding games that were finished but never saw the light of day due to some technicality. Starfox 2

@Ryno: Shadowgate was one of my favorite NES games growing up. Although I liked Deja Vu a bit better, I guess it has to do with the 1940s detective background that Deja Vu has. Is that pic from the PC version?

:O Amazing purchase dude! Oh man, I've been hunting that game down for so long. I want it so bad! IV is my favorite of the series. I was also looking for shadow gate yesterday. Whoa, it's like you were reading my mind. Great job getting both CIB.

@Tasuki: Thanks for pointing out my massively lame screenshot mistake, fixed it to the NES version (I think anyway). So are Shadwogate, Deja Vu, Uninvited, and a game called Rescue?? (in the picture per that pack-in poster with the copy of Shadwogate??) similar in the way they play?

@Retro_on_theGo: Great minds think alike ;) Hope you find a copy of the AMAZING Super Castlevania IV. Just watch out for the bogey Majesco cheapo copies floating around out there. That is the kind of copy that Dracula and his ghoul cronies play. :p

I'm losing control. I just bought Resident Evil 2 for the N64. $14.91. Now I only have enough money for 1 N64 controller. Hopefully I can get some more money for that other controller. You need all 4-players for Goldeneye! Anyways, I heard RE2 was a good port of the ps1 game and I saw it at PlayNTrade and went for it. After those 2 N64 controllers no more retro purchasing for a while. Probably till after Mario Kart 7.

@Ryno: Lol Np man the only reason I noticed it was because of the Windows menu bar along the top of the screen. Deja Vu, Shadowgate and Uninvited do have the same play style cause they were made by the same company I am not sure about Rescue since I have never played it but yeah if you like the play style of Shadowgate I highly recommend checking out Deja Vu and Uninvited.

Edit: Ok after doing research the game Rescue that you mentioned is not made by the same company as the other two so I am not sure if that game is similar. I also included a pic of Deja Vu so you can see how similar it looks to Shadowgate.
