Got given an N64! GoldenEye just gave me motion sickness though. How did I play this so much at the time..?
Also Alien 3 for Megadrive, under-rated game in my opinion, despite it's relative simplicity.

Raided the swap meet today, got lucky. Now while $15 for GT5 Prologue is anything but retro, the $5 I spent for Shantae on GBC, and also $5 for the GBC version of Cannon Fodder really made my morning!

Bought Mega Man 2,3, and 4. Missing 1, 5, and 6 for NES. I go to the flea market and buy alot of stuff people dont know what they are selling such as a mini SNES with Mario All-Stars, Zelda, Mario World, and turtles in Time then sell them back for profit usually, but I kept the Mega Man games.

Very nice the Megaman series was always one of the best series the NES had. Those right there are probably the best 3.

They are the best 3, but having all 6 of them is awesome.

As @ogo79 said, the SNS-RZ-USA is a prime giveaway that it's not a legit retail cart.
And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

Wow Run Saber eh? I'm saddened I never heard of this being an unofficial Strider clone by strider ex-staff types. The pics show me it has potential of being fun and I know where I can likely get a fairly good price on it if it's there.

Just picked up a NES from the local Goodwill for $15. It came with 2 controllers that look and feel decent, the grey zapper, and power cord. Not sure if it works cause I need to pick up some of those Yellow and White cables to hook it up to my TV but I thought for that price I might as well been wanting another one for awhile now. Anyone know if Nintendo every made those cables for the NES??

I'm not completely sure if they made the yellow and white cables for the NES. If they did they are probably less common than the RFU adapter

Uhh brooks is dead wrong just so you know. The NES, any of them even the top loader late in life all came with the A/V mono cable. You can get a cheapo replacement over at Radio Shack for like $5 +/- so you should be set. If it powers on now you're good, if it doesn't flicker the red light with a game in even better. If it gets wonkey, philps head screwdriver, paper towels, a few q-tips, and some 91% isopropyl alcohol rubdown on especially the pin connector which you can unscrew from the board. Check all connections even to the pads, make them firm, reassemble and give it a go.

Okay I just got Fusion and Zero Mission from GameStop for $7.99 and $9.99 respectively. I also traded in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness (bonus 10% trade-in deal as well) and used my Edge card for an extra 10% off of each to boot. The total wound up to be $13.31 but my mom owed me about $10 so I only had to pay for Fusion, which was $3.58.

In other words I got a very good deal.
i just hope they work

Make sure you clean everything before testing it, especially the system.
