Ikari Warriors (arcade), Athena (arcade), Darkstalkers (PSOne Classic), and Medal of Honor Frontline HD. All on PlayStation Store. I already own Darkstalkers, but the disk got scratched somehow and wasn't playing right.

Mario Kart 7

I remember that game from way back when. Revolutionary for its time.

Nintendo - Where even first person shooters ooze creativity.

@Mickeymac: Watching him play MetalStorm just made me want to get the game that much more and not to mention depressed. Why, oh why did that guy have to make that video??? Dracula's Curse him! It could have just been another obscure cheap NES game. Oh well, just have to keep an eye out for it.

Since you are a shooter guy, what are your top 3 favorite shooters?

That's easy: Raiden Fighters, Star Parodier, and Nanostray. Raiden Fighters because it's intense and veried, but not overwhelming (plus it has a great multiplayer mode), Star Parodier because of its perfect difficulty curve (starts out easy then gets really hard by the end), and Nanostray because of nostalgia (it was my first shmup, but also a very well-built game). I'm also partial to gradius, Galaga, Gley Lancer, and all the shmups by Treasure.

yes I consider anything older than the current gen retro. It's easier on my brain

But isnt PS2 considered current gen since you can still buy one new?

Whoa, mega cool! I just received my super out of this Siberian Citadel world complete copy of Mega Man 4 today! It has the registration card and of course the Capcom Craze Club poster. I love the Capcom Craze Club but I get the feeling the rest of you are not as crazy about it as I am. Oh well, more awsomness for me. But yeah, Mega Man games on the NES with a NES controller, does it get much better?

Got Golden Sun through eBay for $10 with free shipping. I also purchased Wild Arms and Suikoden on PSN.

@Wizzrobe

See if you could get a repro cart if Final Fantasy III so you can play it on a NES.

I know most of you guys prefer retro gaming on the original consoles but stories just like this one are the reason I like the VC better. I'll emulate anything I can before I'll gamble on a lousy reseller.

People are practically giving Xbox games away though so you shouldn't run into to many problems.

It still happens more often than it should. For example, I recently ordered a new copy of an Xbox game. It would have made a nice gift for my friend, except Capcom Classics was inside my "factory sealed" Taitos Legends case.

...in my pants.

Now Taito Legends is a nice Xbox game! I have never received an incorrect game, that is pretty messed up. But at least you ended up with a quality game like Capcom Classics opposed to something like Halo.

It certainly could have been higher quality. Capcom Classics has 3 19XX games, 3 versions of Ghosts n' Goblins, 3 versions of Street Fighter 2, but no sign of Puzzle Fighter, Strider, or Progear. Maybe those last 3 games weren't classic enough for them.

Ha, no doubt. At least they wised up and put Strider on Volume 2.

I got 2 SNES games today.

The first being Slick Rick copy of Illusion of Gaia. Another SNES classic I missed out with my limited cashola as a child but I remember this bad boy on the cover of Nintendo Power and wanting it. This reminds me since it was developed by Quintet, are there any other Quintet games on the VC besides Act Raiser?

I doubled down with the seller and got Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest. Yeah I know it may not be the greatest Final Fantasy in this Fantastic world but oh well, still nice to have in the collection. What makes it a little unique is that the original shrink wrap is still mostly intact along with the Special Introductory Price seal/sticker. Cool to me at least to have those bonus rare extras.

Lol actually the Mario Kart games is cause I got the one on the VC with the Club Nintendo coins and he was asking for the 64 once I figure might as well get the Cart rather than the VC version.

@Ryno - nope, ActRaiser's the only Quintet game Square-Enix released on the Virtual Console; such a shame, too, as the other Quintet-developed titles are very fun as well (thus far, I've only played four of their titles out of the six). As far as I'm concerned, eBay or Amazon or any retro store out there (if there are any in the area) are the best choices if one wishes to experience Quintet's other five SNES titles (if they own an SNES console, that is). And Illusion of Gaia? Good choice!

I recently got ahold of the Power Stone collection for the PSP, and really I can see so far how these games influenced Super Smash Bros. Funny thing is, I actually find them to be more fun than SSB. Guess I'd say it's more fast-paced and exciting.
