It was either the unopened original Metroid™ title from several years ago,
or Pokémon Crystal Version for the GameBoy Colour, also few yrs ago.

I love gaming.®

Comment about my signature, where ever you post!
The Adventure of Link: Zelda XIII

So, I suggest this site is a thread about my sig, where it's best to comment about it somewhere near where I post or in a thread of mine.

Post something somewhere about the Zelda XIII idea and name today!

Frosty the funky freakin snowman! I completely blew this paycheck on several 80's Retro Christmas DVD's(The Smurf's Christmas, He-Man/Shera Christmas Special, ect ect) Kirby's Return to Dreamland, a new super sexy couch, Christmas Decorations and some other wild hootanany' :p

Untitled

Yet there's one NES CIB game i definitly have in mind to score when my early Christmas pay check arrives next month....It's a game that brings back bucket loads of super snowy nostalgia, and that memorable trip to the Videostore back when i was Mega Mullet-fied while staring down at it's captivating whimisical and bodaciously cute Box Art. B-)

Seems like a perfect Retro Flinstone-fit for Christmas!

@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…

Well i guess that's the thing though, we play these games not only because of the experience or to make some killer memories gaming-wise, but because they're an escape to another world, worlds that are far more amazing, magical(Mario & Zelda for ex) and interesting than the mediocre one we live in....Then again, there's always Disney Land hehe. :p Worlds where we can run around as a chubby little plummer while hopping on Goomba's and tossing eggs at Pink Tranny dinosaurs(I totaly love Birdo. lol)

But again, balance is the King Koopa key like you said. B-) And If I could get zapped into my TV into Video Land and leave this world forever and become the Captain N Game Master i would in a heart beat. B-) :p

I'm just so into Surrealism, cartoons, anything out of this world dreamy & fantasty-like, film(horror especially)creating things, and last but nowhere near least 'videogames' WoAaAaAaAa B-) :p Then again, nowdays it's just Nintendo like i mentioned before. I mean if they left or magically dissapeared from the gaming industry(Which would never happen in a billion twinkie years) I'd probably just put all my video game focus on building up a retro Nes, SNES, Genesis, Atari 2600, GB and GBA collection while crying bucket loads of Princess Peach tears in the mega process. :p

Anyways, in my teen years i remember at times I'd waste days here and there playing the PSX for hours a day continuesly....Resident Evil 2 was one of those games based on what i remember of the few, and to sum it up you just feel like you've completely wasted your whole day, while feeling pretty bummed out on top if it all. It's the same deal with these couch potatoes who just lay on the couch wathing reality TV all day eating Rainbow Chips' a Hoy cookies and channel surfing until the freakin sun goes down. lol I mean there's so much to do in life, you gotta mix things up!

And I for one feel that Achievements are a complete and utter waste of tiny tim time.
I mean seriously, do these Xbox-ers try to rack up as many as they can so they can impress their friends with their meaningless achievement points? When in reality nobody honestly gives a damn, they're flat out worthless. Do these guys honestly feel accomplished as if they've done something meaningful in their lives? They probably give themselves a big mickey mouse pat on the back and call it a day. :p If anything i think achievments points are a lousy and cheap time wasting way to extend a game. It's no wonder Nintendo is so against it.

Unlocking new characters, new stages or even costumes and modes and the like is entirely different, which I'm all for....But those pesky achievements...ugh. "Congrats, you've killed 50 enemies" or "You're phenomneal, you've just beaten King Razar without taking a hit" DURP! lol ya, whatever dude. :p But at the same time, if you're having fun doing it than who am in the Homer hell am i to say hehe.

and I know what you mean about how times were before the internet. I miss those days...The internet can be pretty addicting at times, especially forums..And as far as gaming goes, it was all about getting together with your friends and having fun in the same room and not online shooting soldiers with some
gear-head' headset with 14 year olds swearing at the top of their lungs. Kids back then seemed more innocent and happier, now a large chunk of them are getting exposed to crap like Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty at such a young age. I play videogames to escape reality, to do something that's so out of this world and imposible in the real world, not to get stuck in World War 2 or become some ghetto king leader and run over strippers. I'm so grateful i was bornin the 84', but i wish i were born a bit earlier....but eh, what can you do. And youv'e got 3 years on the Wavester Damn you Rynox! :p

And man, i really need to try Karnov out! That one completely escaped me back in the Nintendy' NES craze. And yup, those NES Manuals are such a blast to read through. :D I've always gotten a kick out of the artwork and learning the names of the enemies, items and basically everything else.
Super Mario 2(Big suprise) Is hands down my favorite.

Well, if this for both Nintendo and non-Nintendo consoles.
Finally bought Namco Museum Volume 5 for PS1. Wasn't cheap, but it doesn't look like it's going to get cheaper.
Now I can play English Legend of Valkyrie.
Glad I now have four of the five volumes (only missing one of the very-common volumes :) )
(at least in the US, Volumes 2, 4 and 5 seem incredibly rare. Of those, I think I've only seen one copy of 5 offline, and that was when I first started collecting PS games, so I didn't know it was rare.)
Got a scratched copy of 4 some time ago. Crashes when trying to load the museum, so the extra features are inaccessible but the actual games still play. So given its rarity, I suppose it's not a huge loss since it's still functional.

@Waveboy: Nice retroriffic start to this most wonderful time of the year! He-Man & She-Ra are awesome! Santa himself has that DVD is his “must play” list before he makes his annual magical journey on the 24th of December. :D I cannot wait to pop in Pee Wee’s Playhouse Christmas Special on VHS and watch it on my Grandma’s CRT TV’s on Christmas. B-)

I love getting lost in the imaginative worlds of video games and spending some time watching and allowing myself to get absorbed in the creative land of the cartoons and programs of my youth but you know what I enjoy more than that? Being outdoors. I am fortunate to live in a place that is close to snowy mountains, unspoiled coastline, and tremendous old growth forests all nearby. Hiking the backcountry, snowboarding high alpine peaks, fly-fishing clear rivers; man, that is when I really feel like I am experiencing life to the fullest. But hey, I am human and can’t do that all the time so I enjoy the convenience and comfort of getting lost playing video games in a comfortable chair. :P

As for trophies, achievements, etc., yeah I try to get some but I don’t play through modern games more than once so I can “platinum.” But whatever, if that floats someone’s Cobra Triangle boat who am I to say something? I have feelings about those things personally but I don’t want to judge. Besides judges are old and I am only 30. :p I just wish I had more friends that were into video games nearby so I could play co-op the old fashioned way!

I can only hope the Wii U get its act together and they add online co-op to VC games so I can dial you up on the old Miami Vice car phone, rock the 80’s style suits and take on the classics like we were Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas. :p

Is it really as deceiving as I have heard it is? I mean on the outside you have this kiddie looking game but some reviews say it is pretty difficult.

I found a boxed and complete copy of Twin Cobra for the Sega Genesis. The game was in near mint condition for $3.50. If you don't know about Twin Cobra then its a shooter by Toaplan who made other arcade, 8-bit, and 16-bit shooters such as Truxton, Sky Shark, Tiger-Heli etc.

Have you ever bought something from the Internet and it turns out that it was not quite what you expected? So, I bought Super Castlevania IV a little while back and thought I was getting a good collector's condition copy but it was a total disappointment when I got it. The manual was beat up, cover was hanging off, no clear case, and a sun faded box to name some of my problems with it. Since this is my favorite game of all time I want a superb copy. Everyone should have an excellent copy of their favorite game right? You know Wave's got an excellent copy of Super Mario Bros. 2 buried somewhere under his Pop Tarts , horror movies, and TMNT action figures. Well, now I finally have an excellent copy of my favorite game and its pretty close to "new", even has most of the plastic around the box and still has the hangtab on it! :)

I think he was referring to the idea that Xbox is not retro (though that is debateable). That's how I interpretted it at least.

Yea, I bought Strider 2 from this eBay douche a long time back. I made the mistake of trading it in a long time ago when I was young and broke. So I buy this game and he calls it Mint. I didn't pay attention that he wrote "Mint to him" in the description until after I purchased and paid for it. I remember it took forever to get to me, but when it did...I don't see how anyone could've ever considered that to be in Mint condition. The jewel case wasn't the original, it was scuffed and cracked and missing the back insert entirely, the manual was ripped and wrinkled, and ...man, the game...scratched. Worse yet, it was on the top layer where the data sits, so I couldn't even buff out the scratches on the bottom. Get this...the best thing, it may not be common knowledge other than to those who own the game, but Strider 2 came with 2 discs, one for the original Strider, one for Strider 2. They were both misprinted by Capcom. This guy gives me 1 of the two discs, the one labeled Strider 2 (which was actually Strider 1 and presumably keeps the other). I contacted him, he never even had the decency to write back...made a claim through PayPal, but burned his name into my memory forever. Through the disputing process, I never got a chance to leave negative feedback.
