My jealousy for Path of Radiance knows no bounds. Ugh I want to play that game so bad.

I've noticed some local GameStops have lots of copies of the original Nintendogs DS series of games priced at about $3 each. The "virtual pet" genre has never been my cup of tea, but I'll admit that I'm curious about how well it works on the DS system.

So there's three games I've seen: Dalmatian & Friends, Lab & Friends, and Chihuahua & Friends. I'm kinda partial to Labs in real life.

Would anyone with experience recommend getting all the games for the full experience or just picking one.

I enjoyed the one I have (Best Friends) for a while but I eventually got pretty bored. At $3 you can't really go wrong.

Y'all byotches been slackin'! Time for daddy to show ya how it's done!


Saw these two with one below and knew I didn't have either of these yet, so I knew it was a great deal. I had only glanced at the Street Fighter Alpha cartridge in the auction and was actually surprised to find what the label really looked like!


The Wolverine game was also included in the lot from above and the Garfield game just showed up in the same parcel. I mailed the seller asking if it was a mistake but didn't hear back. I do get random bonus games sometimes from people (as a thank you/just trying to pawn off stuff they can't get to sell) so it's not too weird to me.


This is Croket! 3, another random anime fighter. I am like 1% familiar with the book and from what I remember it was in Coro Coro Comic, which I used to get from time to time for Pokemon promo cards.


Not really qualifiers for the "collectors" guild here but I didn't feel like saving these for the recent purchase thread. Bleh.


I had been meaning to pick this up for a while since I voice the boss in the sequel. The boxed version was actually cheaper than most loose ones, for some reason.


Woo random Russia pirated Genesis fighters! I really really like the MKII one... it makes all of the secret characters and bosses playable.

Which of the vintage MMPR games do you prefer: SNES beat em up or Genesis fighter?

What's a Super Game Boy 2? Is it just a Super Game Boy in colored plastic?

It's a Japanese-only release that has a link port and more border options.

Guys, I finally -- finally! -- tossed twenty bucks at an eBay listing and bought myself an S-Video connector. My prized SNES has been sitting in a drawer collecting dust for about a year now because I couldn't stand to see my games fuzzied-up on my 720p set and I kept putting off, and forgetting, to get a new cable.

Also, I never planned on trying to track down Super Famicom games until I discovered that I've been playing a truncated and sanitized version of Super Castlevania IV on my Wii.

The Japanese version has blood dripping from its logo on the game select screen, plop-plop-plop! And crosses on its gravestones -- lots of crosses, everywhere! And the torture chamber level isn't flowing with "ooze" or "acid" or whatever -- it's blood! BLOOD!

Look at this sh*t:






I shouldn't be as upset about this as I am, but I am. Censorship sucks, even on Super Nintendo.

I had always wanted to get a Game Wizard as a lad when I saw them in catalogues. I finally found one for decent price. The games are pretty garbage but I'd likely have enjoyed them as a kid. On the lookout for more games but it's tough finding any without buying a new console (each of the consoles was branded with a license and I only need the one).

I happened upon this video comparing both versions of Street Fighter II and it reminded me of your post.

Ain't anybody postin' in here anymore but I'mma do these photos I took for an unlicensed/bootleg game forum

Here's everything that I was able to find. I still have a few more that aren't anywhere I recall games being.

Spoiler:






The DS games were accidents. I had no idea they were bootles 'til they arrived.
I have the boxes and manuals for the GBA games somewhere.

Spoiler:






Spoiler:

Unfortunately, SMB Special doesn't work on my RetroMini-X or RetroN 3. I don't have access to my actual NES so I've never been able to try it on that.

Spoiler:



These pics are smol so I don't feel ike I need to spoiler them
