Well got a few retro games for the kid for Christmas.
Got Mario Kart 64 and Star Wars Shadows of the Empire for N64
Aladdin for SNES
Come on now, admit Tasuki those games are really for you!
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.

Oh, Power Stone Collection is a very great compilation, and the games in it are a blast, too; the first Power Stone is my favorite of the two

Mine, too. Dunno why, I guess it's the same with Rumble Schools, the second one's additions just didn't do anything for me.

@PeacefulLuma91: That is just crazy to me that ActRaiser is the only Quintet VC game. I rather have CIB copy of a game over a download but anyway it is still find it surprising. Especially with Illusion of Gaia which Nintendo publishing in NA. I have a copy of Soul Blazer as well though I have yet to play it. I enjoyed reading your comments on the Nintendo Life Illusion of Gaia section (including the interesting factoid that SNES games by Nintendo have a red stripe and the others have a purple one) , you had plenty to say. Did you ever get a copy of or play Terranigma and what do you know about Robotrek?

I like Robotrek but I recall there is a part near the end where you can't go back so if you're underleveled it'll be quite frustrating.Would be better if you could use all three of your robots at once instead of having to swap out. (though the game has a unique feature in that power-up canisters appear on the field. Some contain bonus EXP (known as "Megs") but you lose them if you don't finish the battle before a timer runs out. I guess that'd be harder with a team.)
Recent purchases: RoboWarrior (NES) cart $5, Legacy of the Wizard cart and box $7 (no manual, should've checked first since this store was selling a cart and manual only copy for $5). I was suspecting I overpaid for Animaniacs SNES, $9 for a loose Majesco cart (and I hear the Genesis version was a better game). I looked at Maken X for Dreamcast, but at $11 for a copy with scratches on the disc I passed it up because I know that's one of the few Atlus games that isn't valuable. Battle of Olympus NES cart for $5 shipped. I Bought It on ebay, even if the listing played said Weird Al song, because it seemed like an okay price.

I just got this SNES Lot for the smokin' price of $19.50 shipped:
I had this one as a kid but as of right now I don't have a Super Scope so I can't exactly play it at the moment. This game was awesome though back then and makes me want the Scope now to give it a whirl. Even if it means I need to get 57 batteries to use it.
I think I had that shirt and that seem weave belt! Haha..
I have actually never played this one even though it was a launch title and a couple of friends and I had the SNES near launch. I wasn't a big shooter person when I was a kid (played U.N. Squadron a lot, that was about the extentof it) but now I want to collect them especialy as "Shooter" was a big genre back then. I just saw a 100% CIB copy of this go for around $40.00 alone so I am happy about getting this in the SNES trifecta.
The last one is another SNES launch title. This game is so F-awesome! I played it so much growing up and actually still do when I am at an old friend's house and we set up the SNES. I only wish that it was 2 player. This is the only thing keeping it from perfection. I love how the back of the box and manual are all comix-zone style. The receipt is included and it was bought in '92 for $49.99, same price as Nintendo Wii games today, and that was cheap SNES game! Somehow inflation has missed video games.
Since we are talking about F-Zero here, listen to this track. It has to be one of the greatest video game tracks. When I am weaving through traffic on the I-5 or outrunning the cops, I am cranking this.

That's certain a price increase for Gradius III. I remember getting the game new years after it was released ('95 maybe?) for like $20 at EB.Strangest thing I saw was when I bought a complete copy of Fire Emblem GC (Path of Radiance?) from GameStop and someone's Walmart receipt was in the manual. Wasn't even for the game, it was for like chips or something.Now I have a different copy with box and manual though my box is in pretty bad shape (sides folding).

Nice buys Ryzoola! I remember Renting Mega Man 4 around the time it was released long ago in the land of perms and mullets, along with Where's Waldo(don't ask! ) for the NES. Yet at this point Mega Man 4 fet like stale Tetris-territory for me in theland of everything man & Mega. Or rather it didn't boast that same radical magic that Mega man 2, 1 and even 3had. Dive man's stage was pretty awesome though along with his stellar aquatic tunes which totaly set the under water tone.
Plus it' got Skull man...he was just a total bad ass at the time. Plus it had that iconic horrible battle against Toad man...lolHe'd jiggle his belly and do the truffle 'Goonies style' while it rained robo acid. Sure that was awesome,but there was a bit of a lame glitch or advantage you could pull off that would freeze or stop him in his tracks where he became next to useless. And don't get me started on Dust man....What was Capcom thinking!?lol
And i have some pretty funky fond memories of playing BattleClash back at my friends house with that enormous kid-bazooka aka The Super Scope. I don't know if he had it set up properly, but the accuracy was pretty off compared to the zapper.lol Never played Gradius though, while F-zero was pretty awesome for what it is. But by my own rule of toobular thumb, i never play racers anymore that don't have weapons.lol Which means i'll basically play Mario Kart and that's it haha.

I'm still blown away that Capcom have basically forgotten about Power Stone....Where's Power Stone 3!? Instead make way for countless editions and Cow-Milking of everything Street Figher.
Mega Man 11, Power Stone 3 and a new Ghost 'n Goblins would be pretty awesome that's for sure.

lol What happened to poor old Aurthor? Where's his classic Stash? Anyways, I've heard about Maximo and it's sequal even though I'm basically PS2-brain dead. Doesn't it kind of play like a 3D ghost 'n goblins minue the insanely tough challenge? I'll most likey never know because i don't have one ounce of interest at this point in getting a PS2(Although I really need to play through Silent Hill 2, 3 and maybe 4), because i find many older '3D' platformers in this day and age boring to play unless there's some sort of motion control involved like Super Mario galaxy 1 & 2 for example.

The Silent Hills are great. I have 3 sitting here but I have yet to really get into it. Sort of confusing. Whereas 4 is really fun and fairly linear. Still very scary. As for 2, well, I've been told you'll sh*t your pants. I have yet to play it so I have no word on it at all.

I've only beaten the original SH and SH: Shattered Memories. The original SH Schools Shattered Memories in scaryness, usettling atmosphere, being mildy disturbing, and the creep factor department, even though in this day and age it looks like an ugly blocky & stiff eye sore to look at. It's also confusing, depressing and pretty boring in spots I'll admit. Plus the combat was so clunky and poor....But i guess that was done porposley considering the main hero is just your average dude trying to fight back. No Resident Evil soldiers here folks!
Shattered Memories like i said before was fantastic in the Motion Controls department, yet mediocre in every other. I could 'never' play this one with standard dual analog controls....And you'd have to kill me first than make me play through the original SH again.lol The experience for me in no way compared to the original RE, but it definitly makes resident evil seem like a trip to disney land in ways in comparison.

Well I just got a $100 gift certificate to my local retro game store so I will be rolling in the retro goodness here soon.

Probably. I only played some of the second Maximo and I do recall that, while one of the chief difficulties in a GnG game is endlessly respawning enemies, in this game, one of the conditions to score 100% completion on a stage is to destroy all enemies (and another is to collect all treasure chests and revealing them, like the other games, amounts to jumping around randomly all over the stage like a hyperactive little kid doped up on candy ).

Thanks to Nintendo I now have Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. I will no longer keep looking for an original SNES version. I can finally play it! For free! On the go! I love Nintendo so much.If I ever see this game CIB one day for cheap though I'll probably get it just for collection.

Well in the last 3 weeks it has been a rollout of retro items and a system of sorts for it too.
GBA SP Graphite (agb-101 brighter) which came with 3 games(one cib, mario kart) for $50, but the system was the means to an ends. I've been snapping up a lot of Gameboy and Gameboy Color games mostly on the cheap from NintendoAge, flea market, few on ebay. http://tanooki.batcave.net/gameboy.html ...lots of stuff, see for yourself...
