  1. Episode 16 was released last night. Also, we've got forums now! Check those out at: http://www.theretroleague.freeforums.org/
  2. Just released episode 6 last night! Hope to have episode 7 out next week! Thanks for that price link, Mister Zero! Comes in very handy when trying to price old games!
  3. I'd take a look at these: Astro Boy: Omega Factor TMNT Mega Man Zero games Ninja Five-0 Metal Slug Advance Donkey Kong Country games Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo Revival
  4. I love the SP and haven't touched the original GBA since I got the SP. The backlit screen REALLY makes a difference. I've also got a GBA Micro, but only use that at work for some stealth gaming.
  5. If anyone is interested in retrogaming related podcasts, go check out The Retro League at: http://www.theretroleague.com/ Four episodes have been released with topics such as, Top 5 NES games, Arcade memories, a discussion about what retro gaming means, and the hosts' personal over rated NES games. Ebay auctions and Games of the week are also frequent topics. Check it out! And, be sure to leave some feedback!
  6. Awesome game. Never knew about the perfect ending.
  7. It gets my vote for best Final Fantasy. Best RPG? I'd say Chrono Trigger is just as good as FF3. In my opinion, they tie as the best RPG ever.
  8. Color me unimpressed so far. I thought bowling was much easier. Tried my technique from Wii Sports, which was hit or miss, and got 5 strikes in a row before finishing with a 215. Canoeing sucks. Basketball was alright. The sword game and the table tennis are my favs so far. haven't tried everything. I've had a problem with my sensor bar losing my wiimote. This was happening before motion +, so I dunno what's going on. Golf is much harder on this one. I would like to try Tiger Woods 10, though...
  9. And any money that you have. Actually, when I was in high school and before that Street Fighter guide came out, I ripped up a few EGMs and Nintendo Powers to put all the Street Fighter pages in one place. EGM 29 was one of those mags. Since then, I've replaced it, but still...

    The Wizard

    Did everyone see future Spider-Man himself, Tobey Maguire? I love watching old movies and trying to see someone who wasn't famous at the time. Another good video game movie is Cloak and Dagger. Not as much about video games as The Wizard, but I really enjoyed that one. Good for me that they released a double-feature with both movies on 1 dvd a while back.
  11. Not a movie purchase, but I bought Battlestar Galactica Season 4.5 on dvd last night. Movies that I'm planning on buying when I find them cheap are: The Watchmen Gran Torino Taken 3:10 to Yuma (this is probably cheap enough, but for some reason, I keep putting off buying it...)
  12. As of this posting, I'd say the new Battlestar Galactica, but I just finished watching my 4.5 dvds today, so that may be clouding my judgment. Other notables are Star Trek: The Next Generation, Batman: The Animated Series, Gargoyles, and Quantum Leap.
  13. It's very hard to pick just one, but for the longest, mine was The Dead Poets Society. Most days that will still be my favorite, but The Last Samurai creeps up there every now and then.....as well as The Shawshank Redemption....sometimes Braveheart.... Today I'd say Dead Poets Society.
  14. I bought one of those when they first came out. Paid around $50 I think.... It works quite well although mine is not hooked up at the moment. You can use the regular SNES controllers too.
  15. My parents bought a 5200, but we never played it all that much. I do remember losing to my Dad in football every time we played. My sister and I split the cost of the NES. We couldn't find the Super Mario bundle, so we got the first one we found...the R.O.B. set. I loved Duck Hunt, but absolutely hated Gyromite. I was able to hook ROB up and get it to work with Gyromite, but it was such a hassle. I remember we bought Castlevania very soon after. The first console that I bought all by myself was the Super Nintendo. I remember having both the SNES and the NES hooked up to one TV. My Mom wouldn't let me put one in my bedroom when I got a tv, so both had to be in the living room. I also remember saving my allowance in order to buy a subscription to Nintendo Power when it first started. I was pissed because they were going to start charging for this new magazine when the Fun Club News was free. Once I received that first issue as the tryout issue, I was hooked. Nintendo really knew what they were doing with that giveaway. Oh, and my Dad and I only played 1 game of Tecmo Super Bowl on the NES. I showed no mercy. Maybe that's why we only played one.
