Haha, I'll make sure of that. I was going to buy Super bomberman once but it came with a lame B/W manual. I can't seem to find one in color though. Seems like it only comes in B/W, bummer. :( I'll be sure to get the castlevania IV manual in color though.

I just found 3 N64 games lying around! :O Only one of them seems good though. I found WCW/nWo Revenge, In the zone '98, and Madden 2001.
I don't like madden and I could be wrong but every basketball game since NBA Jam sucks. So I won't bother playing those. The blue Madden cartridge looks real cool though.

Awesome purchase regarding LOZ complete! I only have the gold Cartridges, but I'm still cool with that. Anyways, that massive ancient map totaly brings back memories back in the day when i was hanging out at some kids house from school....He was watching Jim Hensons The Dark Crystal downstairs(Or maybe it was The Never Ending Story, can't remember exactly) with a couple of girls and they kept giving me attitude for some freaky funky reason. :p

So i decided instead to go up to his room and blast away at Bubble Bobble and the LOZ while using his map which was laying on the floor with this scattered NES collection. lol

Like you, I stopped playing the LOZ starting with OOT(Although WW, PHG and now Links Awakening have kicked me back)....Then again, I've barely even played ALTTP. Instead I used to watch my best friend play it here and there at his house when he was head over heels for the game. It was even amazing just watch. :D Yet I was just too into Mario & Mega Man along with many other games at the time to want to dive deep into another Zelda Adventure. LOZ and Zelda II however are my nostalgia Zelda babies. :p

That aside, i haven't bought a Retro purchase since Back to the Future for the Nes! :p I need to get on the Spooky Halloween NES train and dive deep into eBay land and spend some spooky Ghost Cash. B-)

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?).

DUDE! I was so planing on getting Shadow Gate complete this month for Halloween! Looks like you beat me to it! :p
Shadow Gate was the first game in retro land existense to ever scare me and give me chills when i was 5 or 6...I remember renting it and only played maybe 30 minutes of it before calling it quits while having absolutely no idea what to do, but the main reason was that i was just too spooked to play it, since i was all alone in the dark....Shadowgate used to haunt my 8-bit nightmares...While completely causing a massive funky brain fart in the spookylooky process.

As for SCIV, hands down one of the greatest SNES games I've ever played and we ALL know by now that it's your favorite hehe...And seriously, why in the hell hasn't Konami brang back the Dangly' whip mechanic from SCIV? It was so awesome to use and to deflect enemy projectiles and the like. SCIV feels so original compared to the others in the franchise and it also boasts the most atmospheric Castlevania score out of the vamp sucking bunch as well. B-)

Anyways, I'm guessing you've got quite the CIB Collection going on. I've only got 5 CIB Nes titles, must....buy...more....aghhh!! :p

But wasn't that until after you finished the game with Alucard? Besides, that's metroidvania we're talking, I want it back in a traditional style castlevania. B-)

@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.

@Tasuki: Rescue, The Embassy Mission was Kemco Seika too like Shadowgate. Looks interesting, never heard anything about it before?

Nice work, Retro_on_theGo you are definitely living up to your name. ; ) Retro fever is fun, once you catch you cannot get rid of it. :D I like RE2, it is not a port of RE1 but a new game and it was my first Resident Evil experience. I have yet to see a color manual for Super Bomberman so I don't know if it even exists so you may have to get a B&W manual like you were saying but that is good that if you are going to pay extra for something to get it complete you are on the lookout for the color manuals! They are so much cooler. B-)

Man, that 3DS of yours must have you warped up in Dimension X because it has definitely been lately a no-go on your retro! :P Casey Jones is going to make a visit pretty soon to get your mind right ;)

I am venturing beyond just getting the games now, I like all the things like maps and guides so looking forward to having LOZ complete in all its brillantly golden glory. There goes even more money $$$. Haha.. You should definitely play the masterpiece A Link to the Past if you enjoyed Link's Awakening, its number 3 for me behind Super Castlevania IV and Super Metroid.

I have never played ShadowGate so looking forward to the experiencing it for the first time. Hoping for a good jeepers creepers kinda game! You should be able to get a complete copy pretty cheaply nowadays. Yeah my collection is growing, by leaps and bounds. B-) Like my only NES title that is not complete is your fav Super Mario Bros 2. I need to get me a box for it... Agreed the dangly whip issuch a sweet mechanic! Konami probably took it out from future titles becuase it you master it like a true Belmont you would be seriously untouchable! :) Oh and the music, what have we not said about it already right? I can listen to those any part of the day; driving, cooking, reading, hangin' with the wife, whenever!

I'd be surprised if it doesn't. I'm not aware of an original non-Majesco release that didn't have at least a color cover.
Might be harder to find a complete original Super Bomberman though. I think original release, all copies (at least North American) came with the Super Multitap in a big box. I do remember renting the game from Blockbuster and the rental included the multitap. (I remember they even used an extra large storage case to hold the game and tap). Certainly Blockbuster wouldn't pay extra to rent out a "premium" package.
(though I also remember renting EarthBound and while they did rent out the strategy guide, since it WAS the manual, they didn't make a special rental case for it)
I'm not certain if a small box game-only release actually exits. I see a couple "mint" listings on ebay that include an obviously faked box.
Here is the only actual photo I can find of a small box. So I guess it exists.

The games came in the mail yesterday. Double Dragon is a bit messed up. It is HARD to get out of the NES. :( Journey to Silius and Goldeneye work fine though. The controls in Goldeneye are real akward to me. I'm going to have to try hard to get use to them. Journey to Silius is fine though. Great controls, great music, awesome level design, unlimited continues, and the character looks like fry! :D Love it. All great deal. A little mad about Double Dragon, not sure why it gets stuck, but at least it plays. Overall these were awesome purchases! :)

Not that retro, but I was in GameStop today, pre-ordering Skyward Sword. I was bored, looking through the GameCube games, and there I saw it: Pikmin 2. I live in a very rural area, so I have never even seen this before. I've always wanted a Pikmin game, specifically the second one, but $40 seemed ridiculousness to me. Well, the guy who labeled it put "Pikmin - $9.99" on there, mislabeling it. They honored the price though, so I got it for 30 dollars cheaper than normal. :P

I just bought a N64 controller. Good condition analogue stick. :) I was looking for 2 unfortunately only found one. Can't complain though. I got it for $4! :D I'll go back to the flea market tomorrow. Hopefully someone new will have another.

Got Porky Pig's Haunted Holiday SNES cart and manual I ordered from amazon. What's strange about this is while the cover of the manual is color and in normal glossy paper (which makes me guess it's an original release), the rest is black and white and in "rougher" paper. Never seen an SNES manual before that wasn't completely printed on glossy paper. Even the other B&W manuals I've got (Goof Troop and Monopoly) have been glossy.

Why have I unintentionally bought "scary" games lately? After getting Porky as mentioned, I also ordered Haunting Starring Polterguy for Genesis (complete ex-rental copy) and Gremlins 2 for NES. And also Journey to Silius, which as we know was originally going to be a Terminator game. Both NES games loose. Is it just me or has Silius' value gone up a bit lately. Sure I could've easily gotten that for a few bucks last year but didn't. Now it's over $10.
