I totaly laughed when i read the Back to the Future and Ice Cream man comments hahaha. :p I can relate to feeling too cool for gaming during the mid point of the gamecube era. All i cared about when i was 19-21 was having a blast and partying plus ze' french women. B-)
Videogames took a major back seat into nowhere land as i just didn't care at that point. It was basically just before i hit 22 when i got my DS Lite at launch, with the major hype build up months later when the Wii was announced that totaly kicked me back.
And those are some brilliant teeny weeny analogies regarding Modern and Retro gaming you got there, and i pretty much feel the same way, at least when it comes to the PS3 and XBOX, because I'm still all for new Wii experiences and that's mainly because i adore motion controls when done right like a Great white cartoon shark drugged out on cherry fruit roll ups. But on the PS3 and XBOX, i honestly could care less. I mean I might snag the new Mortal kombat if i ever see it going for cheap, or maybe the new Dead Space 2....Then again, I had a pretty boring time with the original based on my 1 or so hour play through.
Those Americanised 3rd person sloppy clunky controls while using dual analog for aiming felt flippin awful. I'd rather get polverised and dipped in Cartoon acid by Doctor Doom like that poor little shoe did in Who Framed Roger Rabit than put up with those archiac, dinosaur dated, unengaging snore enducing controls again. It felt like i was playing a PS2 game with prettier graphics and in HD....What can I say, I've seen the future of first person and 3rd person(and those are only 2 examples) and they are Wii pointer controls, at least for now until we're warped into virtual reality! B-) Going back to dual analog is worse than eating a plate of deep fried Mario mustaches. B-)
anyways, my PS3 controllers are in a box in storage along with my other games and gizmo gadgets that I've been forced to sell to King Kool-Aid. As for my PS3, i too just use it for DVD's and Blurays....hell, i should of just bought a Bluray player instead, i hate the fact that I'm using a video game console to play movies. :p
I guess what I'm saying is, my playstation days have officially ended...Then again they had pretty much 2 years ago after playing Resident Evil 5.:P) and I'm strictly old school retro with a massive splash of modern Nintendo. B-) I'll always stick with Nintendo and their new consoles, it's tradition bud! B-)
As for Kirby, i was never into the series either growing up. I played a bit of Dreamland 3 and Super Star at a friends house but that was it for the pink little fluffer. I ended up playing and beating Kirby's Adventure for the NES VC last year and i thought it ranged from to decent to pretty boring overall, but Super Star Ultra for the DS was quite the radskie omega to be honest, i was pretty impressed by that one. B-)
And then there's Kirby's Epic Yarn which was absolutely unique and gorgeous eye ball candy from a graphical/art direction stand point. But you won't get one ounce of challenge or satisfaction while playing it, after all you can't die.lol Just soak up the bright colorful sugary visuals, listen to the fluffy light hearted charming and whimsical tunes and you'll have a good time if you're in the mood for an unchallenging relaxing platformer. ;) Plus, those Motion Tilt Fire Truck controls were totaly awesome, it's innovation and ideas like 'that' that gets me excited and show me what next gen controls are all about. :)
Anyways, the Wave Child is hung over at the chocolate minty momento. :) time to hit the sack and dream about bodacious flourescent flying mullets and amazon babes with big hair. Maybe I'll luck out Y'noid-style and go on a wild adventure with Captain N and his little pal Mega and Icarus. lol B-)

Hilarious stuff there, is it true what they say about French woman? :D The best thing about the Wii for me was that it got me thinking about Nintendo in apositively fantastic starman light again. My first game with Nintendo after a long hiatus was Metroid Prime 3 and "I was like this is amazing, why did I ever ditch Nintendo? I need to play Super Metroid again after this!” :p From there the Nintendo * juju* just began to grow like a beanstalk in Super Mario Bros.

I actually liked the original Dead Space though I admit I was still in awe of HD gaming when it came out. At the time it was new, fresh, and cool. I never got around to Dead Space 2, I might snag that up on a super clean out sale along with Mortal Kombat if that ever gets to $30 or less. As for Resident Evil 5 I was so looking forward too and is the only game I have ever bought at a midnight launch and overall I thought it was OK. To me it was just another 3rd person action game. The DLC Lost in Nightmares was pretty cool though. So, I can handle dual analog for a game but then I need to mix in some excellent retro 2D platforming or Wii motion action to break up the monotony. Like you I am keeping it retro with some modern games on Nintendo consoles mixed in. Life is too short to play video games all the time so it’s time for me to figure out my priorities. It’s like a video game jungle sometimes it make wonder how I keep from going under.

Oh and awesome buy regarding Contra III! B-) Once again, i've been even more inspired to get a CIB Nes game next pay check and a little something else. Contra III is definitly one of the best in the franchise, yet I've always been thrown off by it's more mechanical, darker and serious far less colorful & industrial envirtonments, tone and style. I mean bring back that lucious amazon, give me some bright blue killer water falls, not some construction site or some dungey streets and a warehouse. :p

Still it's an awesome game for sure. Yet the original will always be my favorite. Super C was a fun sequal and Contra 4 while good would of been better had it been one screen only. Those enemy bullets and projectiles zap through the screen like a rabit coming out of a mega magic hat. Still haven't played Hardcorps, I've got a copy of Contra: Operation C for the GB which i still need to play, and then there's the PS3 sequal 'Hardcore: Uprising". Yet Contra ReBirth was easily the worst of the bunchy bunch, half bunzed attempt with uncreative cookie cutter bosses(aside from the epic galactic space Catapilar in the first stage hehe) and it's so short, plus the wussy unlimited continues make the experience even MORE short and far less challenging. I want to have 'limited' continues, so I can go back to the start each time and master the freakaleakin' game and learn from my ninja turtle mistakes. :p

And it Contra 4 shouldn't of been callled Contra 4, as it was more like a remake/re-imagening of the original. :p
Anyways Retro Christmasy purchases coming my way less than 2 weeks! B-)

Contra III is a good time, so many cool touches and things like riding motorcycles and jumping from missile to missile that can only be done on the SNES.B-) The whole overhead R and L scrolling stages add a whole other beast to the Contra carnage. But dude, the game takes place in 2636 or something like so by then there is not lush Amazon forest and tranquil cascading waterfalls left. :P Never played Contra 4 obviously since I am DSles but I beat Super C for the first time on the wife’s older 18” CRT TV 2 nights ago! :D All I got to say is Super C, I know it’s not a Top Wave Fave, looked absolutely beautiful. The colors popped at me like I was kariting on Rainbow Road.

Waveboy, OldGamesOnly, Retro_on_theGo: Ok fine, so I am the weird one because I will change a game out before I beat it. :p I don’t like having a game floating around “unbeat” haunting me like Freddy Kreuger though. It’s terrible.

Yup. I've been playing original Metal Gear today. I thought of playing the games chronologically, in terms of storyline, but I've waited too long to play this. That would've meant finishing Snake Eater and Peace Walker before getting to Metal Gear.

A lot of differences from NES Metal Gear so far. You arrive by water, like you do in Metal Gear Solid, instead of by air. And you start out at Outer Heaven's entrance, instead of in the jungle. And, comfortingly, if you're discovered, you aren't followed from screen to screen. Finally, couldn't help but go squee when I heard that the main theme is the same one you hear during missions in MGS: VR Missions (I think that may be my next retro purchase)! So far, it feels more like Metal Gear than the NES version (I guess primarily because of the entrance and music).

Oh, and the traditional NES era Konami pause jingle when you pause (squee again)! Not Outer Heaven. Retro Heaven! :)

Sounds So Super Stealthy Snakealicious, I will put in on my Christmas list!

I got this and though I dont really think GBA is really "retro" I am still going to post in this particular latest video game purchase thread. After all it has the original Castlevania style "C," and not the crescent moon version dreamed up by Dracula himself during one of his all night all you can eat pork chop washed down with human blood Transylvanian rave's with all his favorite Succubus's. I have put about 30 minutes into it so far during my lunch break (because that is the only time I play portable video games) and I must say I will certainly be looking forward to my lunch hour even more for awhile! :D It makes me wish I had the headphone dangly thing for my GBA SP so I can go vampire hunting with all its Castlevania signature audio style maximized to the fullest.

I've got a lot of Genesis games to catch up on since I missed out XD (although I've played Sonics 1-3&K, Dynamite Headdy, Gunstar Heroes,Comix Zone, Earthworm Jim 1, MUSHA Aleste, and the first Streets of Rage and highly enjoyed those games

An XBOX purchase in a retro forum? Now that just depresses me more than if LJN got the rights to Develop Mega Man 11.
Get these kids and their X-Mcdoodles outa' here! lol

Anyways, when it comes to Retro purchses, I'm going CIB for every next purchase baby. :D B-)
It makes me regret not doing this earlier since most of my NES games are cartridge-only It's just so awesome having that killer funky colorful, striking and fun 80's box art on display rather than having a cartridge with it's teeny little shrimpy label for you to only see. :p

I totaly here you about life being too short to play videoames all of time. It's all about balance, too much of anything is a 'bad dudes' bad thing. And Rynozord, I can definitly relate to this enormous massive VideoGame jungle that we kind of live and breathe in Mondo Gecko-style. I feel like it's not quite as much anymore considering i ditched playing PS3 games, so there's nothing to keep up as far as that's CoCoa puff concerned. But as far as modern Nintendo goes....There's the Wii, WiiWare, Wii VC games, then there's the 3DS, 3DS VC games and 3DS Classics. yikes! :o

I can barely keep up as it is, but it's all about going at it at your own Proto man-pace. B-) I feel like I'm a lot more pickier with modern games in this day age. Not only because I'd rather spend my cash on retro games, but because of the time that i'd have to put into them....There's nothing worse than wasting your money and time on a crappy game. lol (Cough! Ju-on: The Grudge cough! That so called Halloween treat turned into an almost unplayable Napoleon Bonafrog of a nightmare!) Anyways! Yet when I game, I usually game no more than 2 hours. 3 is pushing it max and nothing beyond that. :p

Balance is the Shadow-gate 'key' bud, but you already know that! :p People who devote their lives, hours and days to videogames are missing out on many other things.....Like um, collecting more retro games! haha. Nah, but i guess in the end all that really matters is your happyness, friends and family, people who love you in your life and just doing what your love! B-)....Like working on this god forsaken Turtle Pie Time machine. I've almost created an 80's vortex by using a couple of retro-Light Brights, Some Left over radioactive E.T & NES Cereal and Johnny 5's giant Robo wiener. I'm almost there! B-)

Anyways! I'm pretty pumped for my next couple of retro purchases i'll be snaging towards pay day. I really want to start up a CIB Nintendo collection. I'm still kicking myself that most of my retro-buys were cartridge only. :p Looks like I'll have a few extra doubles hehe. And you know, part of me misses my 32" Sony CRT SDTV....Hell, i'd still be happy with a TUBE TV, it just takes me back i guess to a time where everything was just too awesome. B-) But, a 50" 1080p 3D HDTV will be a must for Wii U games hehe.


So random, yet so awesome ;)

Now if you'll excuse the Wavester I've got some Donkey kong to play for the Game Boy. B-)

Just ordered a couple loose GB carts: Donkey Kong GB: Dixie to Dinky, the Japanese GBC version of Donkey Kong Land III (since let's be honest, if Nintendo releases DKL3 on VC (likely), there's a 99% chance it'll be the monochrome version) and Taito Variety Pack (as the name implies, it's a legal multi-cart. Bubble Bobble, Chase HQ, Elevator Action and Sagaia/Darius II).

@WaveBoy: Nothing like video games to help provide some perspective on life, eh? ;) Like you said it’s all about balance, you don’t want to be one of the goobers who play video games all the time and misses out the things in life that actually matter. That’s a lonely unsatisfying life there waiting for you if you make video games a Godzilla size chunk of your life. Your family, wife/girlfriend, and friends do not really give a rip about how many games you have beat or how many “achievements and trophies” you have. Sure it makes good discussion here but outside of checking in here while at work I try not to spend my additional “free time” on video game websites. Actually, I try not to spend too much time on the Web in general. Remember back in the day back when people actually spent time with other people in person? Alright, I better nip this in the Fire Flower bud now… Haha… :D

Yeah, I am at peace with finding out to how to control the mass influx of video gameage out there in this Super Mario World. WaveDude, not to get all sappy like a maple tree but you helped me with it! Dr. Wave, you can bill my insurance. Haha :P My main focus is collecting retro games specifically NES & SNES with a Back to the Future sprinkling of Genesis and Atari 2600 down the road. My Gamboy Advance SP will keep me busy for lunch breaks until I retire and I am sticking with Nintendo consoles for the rest of my Turtles in Time here on this amazing planet.

Hurry up with that 80’s Vortex. I am definitely looking forward to some fresh Nintendo Cereal System and I want to buy 2 copies of the ultra groovy original Mega Man. Best of luck to you in your CIB Nintendo collection! The writing that comes on the back of the boxes and in the manuals is just so cool along with the bodacious artwork. :) I love the wild and crazy stuff that they did back then, like with Karnov for example, they used pictures of the arcade game on the back of the NES box and they actually say something like “actual shots are of the arcade version.” WTF? Haha…

I got some more SNES goods.

First, this is an "upgrade" purchase. You may be thinking, Ryno already bought that. True I did, but I didn't originally get it with the awesome map and Top Secrets: Messages from Sahasrahla. Plus this manual and box are in better condition.:D

I have never played Secret of Mana. Actually, I missed out on a lot of the cool Action-RPG SNES games, so I want to make sure to collect them with their maps and guides and everything. A Link to the Past is one of my favorite games so I am sure I will like this one.

I just got Secret of Evermore in the mail today complete with poster and map and I have question for those who collect and can remember the good ol' SNES days (maybe KingMike or oldgamesonly). Did the NA "white tray" ever change during the SNES era to the one in the picture below or was it always the same style and that is just the wrong one?

@Ryno: Nice purchase as usual buddy boy, you make me jealous. :P

To answer your question about the white tray I believe different companies used different styles of the white tray. Some of my SNES games came in trays that were completely solid all the way around and the game sat in the middle spot while others had what looked like the top part missing like yours that came with Secret of Evermore there. I think it was a move so that they used less packaging or something I am not really sure why they had different designs.

@Retro_on_theGo: For me I want to collect NES and SNES games as close to original as possible even down to the correct tray. Warnings and Nintendo Power ads not so important but all the other inserts I want. I know the best way to do this would be to buy new and sealed which most of the time is more than I want to pay. Plus, I still want to play the games and read through the manuals and look at the posters. How much did it all cost? Well, that depends on which/how much you are talking about here. ;)

Thanks guys, that white tray just seems cheaper then the more common solid one. Maybe when that game came out in '95 Nintendo or other game companies were trying to create "less waste" like what you said Tasuki. Looks like most of the copies on Ebay come with that tray
