@Starfox I see... Well, download Contra III and dont take your finger off the fire button and bring your quick reflexes. You will need it.

Can anyone tell me if there is a big difference between the Lost Levels on the VC and the one on Super Mario Allstars?

Last week I played Lost Levels on some else's SNES, really enjoyed it and want to get it for myself. Should I just download the original on the VC or try and find a copy of Super Mario Allstars 25th anniversary edition (not cheap).

@Starfox: If you never played a Contra you are in for a treat. Dont worry if you die alot you do in those games alot. Just remember if you are playing the first Contra UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, B, A, START.

Oh and to answer you question from a different post why isnt Super C called Super Contra. It was because when Super C came out it was during the time when Iran was holding Americans Hostage which came to be known as the Iran Contra Affair. Fearing that the word "Contra" would bring negative images to parents and such buy the game they just called it Super C.

@billy-beauts: There really isnt any difference except for the graphics really. Basically what it comes down to is if you want the other games include on the SMA disc or if you just want the Lost Levels and how cheap you can get the SMA. A local used game shop more than likey will have some used by now.

@Tasuki What the??? You give him the Konami code for Contra but only leave him with three lives on Super C! :p Super C 10 man code is Right, Left Down, UP, A, B, Start

I never did play Super C, I knew there was a 10 man code but I didnt bother memorizing it.

I need some recommendations. I have 1200 points left and I don't know what game(s) I should get. The only genres I don't won't recommended from are RPG and adventure games. Here's a list of games I already have. Thanks in advance. :)

Edit: I also have Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection so don't recommend anything from that either.

You need more shooters. Soldier Blade, Super Star Soldier, Lords of Thunder, R-Type.

@Mickymac: Yeah you're right, I really do need more shooters.

Okay so I've got it narrowed down, should I get MUSHA or Life Force and New Adventure Island?

I suggest MUSHA. It's an amaing game, full of addicting gameplay and really kickass music. It's a PERFECT example of a great shmup on the Genesis and I highly recommend it.

@StarFox: If you have never played it than yes. It is the best one in the series ever. Although none of the games require you to play another from the series since they dont really link in anyway story wise.

@StarFox I'd actually suggest trying out FF2 (FF4) first as it's a better representation of what the series has to offer. But whatever, it;s your money.

Would anyone suggest that I download "Super Adventure Island 2", when it becomes available in North America. It seems like the only entry in the series that I would enjoy. Mainly because of the rpg elements.

@superlink64: I'd go for Mario Party 2. Yoshi's Story is alright but it's a little too easy.
