Retro Gaming Purchases!

Ever since we moved out of the café 16 years ago, I always wanted to have an arcade cabinet again.

But more like an astro cab or candy cab which would let me play all kinds of JAMMA games. :)

Oh, and so nice to see Puzzle de Pon!

It's one of my favourite games ever!

Still love Puzzle Bobble 2 (Bust-A-Move 2) on PSone the most for it's awesome and series exclusive 100 level Time Attack mode.

But I like Puzzle de Pon even more as a multiplayer game. So awesome, yet unknown.

Yeah, this game was one of my favourite's too when it was released. I remember thinking how great it looked, especially when compared with similar game's for the NES and Master System. I seem to remember it being a lot harder back in the day, but it still look's and play's great. :)

I've been going back and forth with this for a while (Wii or top-loading NES). My mind was made up for me earlier this evening...

Original top-loading NES, w/ 2 dogbone controllers, RF adapter, AC adapter. Plus Mario/Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario Bros 3, and Tetris.

Grand total...$80.00 shipped.

Yeah I was happy :Yahooo::Nes::NesCart::Nes_pad:

Bought F-Zero X for the Nintendo 64">N64 today. Works fine and play's great.

Even though Nintendo had to keep the graphic's fairly simple to keep the frame rate up, I still think it look's great. :)

I got Jungle Strike and Super Hang-On for the Mega Drive recently. I played both of them back in the day and they're still great game's. Really like the music in Super Hang-On. :)

Last couple of purchases were xBox (that's retro now, right?? :)), Rage Racer for PS1, Jet Force Gemini for Nintendo 64">N64 and couple of games for Genesis (MegaDrive in EU) including Shadow Dancer, Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and Stargate.

My Megadrive collection is now ~70 titles, and Nintendo 64">N64 only 20 titles. (which is not bad considering I got it 2 years ago :))

Philly...um...I'm sorry, just one question here...

How is it you have a Game Boy and you didn't have a copy of Tetris?? :)

The same reason why I have 1 Xbox game, 2 PS2 games and 5 PSx games. I stupidly sold or traded my games over the years. I have since sworn to reclaim everything and more. I figure it will cost me about $600 to buy the top 50 Gameboy games of all time.....and another $700 to buy the top 30 Dreamcast games B)

I'm excited...I've never played it, but I heard it was good.

I see you got a little bonus in with your PS1 games there, Unknown3125. That Japanese Parasite Eve soundtrack is a nice score. :)

I got Gran Turismo 2 for the Playstation on Saturday. The disc and the case are in really good condition and I only paid 10 euro's for it.

The first car I got was a Honda Prelude and I've been slowly improving it with prize money from each race. I think I've taken it as far as I can, so I'm going to get a Lotus Elise next. Then I'm going to get some classic American muscle car's and a porsche or two.

I'd forgotten how amazing this game looked and played. I can see myself putting some long hour's into this game. :)

GT2 was always my favorite.. it was a game that fell victim to my brothers' trade in spree at GameStop back in 2003.

I had an Audi TT, Subaru WRX and a Toyota Supra. I really miss that game..

I recently bought a boxed Mattel Intellivision through Craigslist; lot's of fun!

I'm in the process of building a "good" game collection; only two days ago I purchased Night Stalker and Snafu on eBay.

Then of course I had to order a signed copy of Intellivision Lives, a new release for the DS; Signature by none other than Keith Robinson :)

Those can cost quite a bit sometimes. Was yours a good deal? I've always been curious about the Intellivision and Collecovision.
