  1. Interesting, and I'm even willing to believe this (if I can confirm it), but I went to both sites mentioned and couldn't find anything else about this on either one. Do you have any other links about this?
  2. Hi friends. I have an extra copy of TMNT IV - Turtles in Time that I'd like to pass along. Looking to get $33 shipped in the US (Canada would be a few dollars extra). The game is in excellent condition, tested and works fine. Thanks for looking!
  3. In case you need another reason to hate Gamestop, it seems they either reprinted Xenoblade Chronicles or held back the supply because within the last week, they've "procured" a ton of copies and are selling them for $90. Every store nearby me has a copy for sale and you can also buy it online. It looks like they hoarded stock (to keep supply low, remember they were the only retailer to sell it), recently removed shrinkwrap and are selling them as "used" so they can keep all the profit. Bastards. http://kotaku.com/extreme-gamestop-pricing-leaves-some-fans-calling-scam-1108627828 http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/08/14/xenoblade-and-metroid-prime-being-restocked-at-gamestop
  4. Just got a lot of nice N64 carts from Austin, and they look great. Great transaction all around, thanks man!
  5. The seller, after months of ignoring me, finally made good (or barely tried to) and sent a replacement label for my N64 set. Unlike my originals which are sharp, high-quality and professional looking, this one was from a new batch and looked blurry and assy. It was also half a centimeter shorter. Basically, it's useless. Not sure what the seller's problem is, but buyer beware. Hopefully he'll chime in at some point and gets his $#!+ together.
  6. Payment has been sent for Sea Wolf/Bombardier, thanks! Free bump for a friendly seller
  7. PacManPlus those look really nice! Thanks for linking. (I've searched the forums for 5200 end label info without much luck.) If you are recollecting 5200 carts, is there any chance you'll be making more end labels and would you make an extra set for yours truly? I imagine there are many others who would buy a set as well. I like to think I'm a bit artsy, but I know I could never make labels that look professional enough for my liking.
  8. Item arrived quickly and was packaged nicely. Great transaction, many thanks!
  9. Actually, I know who you are talking about and I did indeed buy end label sets from him last Dec for N64, 32X and Jag. They look awesome and I'd love to recommend him, but when I wrote him recently after finding a misprint, he ignored me for weeks finally telling me to "keep reminding him." His labels are nice, but service is piss-poor so he's on my shitlist. However, he didn't make any 5200 labels afaik. That's why I was hoping someone else had made a set. The 5200 carts sure need them!
  10. Nah, just the website. I'm all thumbs with the iPad keyboard and totally useless when I try to type on a smartphone.
  11. Grats on owning one of the coolest systems ever. imo the percentage of quality titles in the Turbo library is second to none.
  12. Some very good picks in this thread which I certainly can't argue with. From my own experience, these games are ones I owned/played bitd which really let me down: Bugs (2600) Reactor (2600) It's Only Rock N Roll (Coleco) - may qualify for "so bad it's good" status because it made us laugh Winter Games (NES)
  13. Has anyone made nice-looking end labels for all the carts that need them? (at least the ones that have the standard cart case?)
  14. I enjoyed it but trying to tap the ipad keyboard is a pita! I ran out of time having got 49, but I would have had it!
  15. Wow, great video! Thanks for sharing. God those 80's/early 90's shorts were awful weren't they?
  16. Bought a few games and everything arrived nicely and super quick. Would gladly trade or buy from again, thanks!
  17. Great transaction, friendly guy. Thanks for the game!
  18. O2 games arrived quickly and it great shape. Thanks!
  19. Bought a few more games/items from Stupus and it was another wonderful transaction. Finally own Power Lords thanks to this conjurer of goodness, and my Vectrex and Bally are much happier now too. Thanks man!
  20. Bought a few great Genny games and a 7800 game, all got here super quick. Great transaction all around! Thanks!
  21. Sadly Torr I have to agree, except I'd say Dreamcast was pretty successful too. At least among people I know (or knew). Maybe not everyone HAD a DC but a lot of people played it and there are still games that are remembered as fondly as SMB, Sonic or Goldeneye. But it is true that, at least in the US, when you say "Sega" people think Genesis.
  22. Atariboy, it's my understanding that the Wii U does NOT upscale Wii games.
  23. I received my CV back from Yurkie yesterday, and I just have to say - Yurkie gets my vote for AA's MVP! The console looks gorgeous and plays even better. If you own a CV, you're doing yourself a disservice by waiting another minute to send it. I've been collecting for CV for over 10 years, but haven't really gotten to play any of these games (with a decent controller) until last night. It was wonderful. This week is Spring Break, and we have my 8 year old stepson. He's a great kid but I have never really trusted him to be careful with retro stuff, so I typically keep it stored and only pull it out when he's not with us. Last night, couldn't help it. I played Smurf (which got him curious), then Galaxian and he wanted to play. I set up a 2p game and we had a blast. Next was Frogger, which he loved. We must have played for an hour, and he was laughing and having a blast. Honestly, after all the PS3 and Wii U he is used to, I was expecting him to get bored quick. After a dinner break, I suggested a movie and he wanted to keep playing Coleco! We tore up some Mr. Do!, BurgerTime, Q*bert, Carnival, Jungle Hunt... then I pulled out the Roller Controller and we spent an hour playing Centipede! He said he likes the cool controllers and even said he thinks my system is "awesome." Back in 83/84, while the rest of my huge hick family was playing Atari, my aunt had a CV in her bedroom and us kids loved it though she would rarely let us play it (in fact, this is her old console). I was about 8 years old then, and now even 30 years later, I'm making new Coleco memories with my stepson. Couldn't be happier. A million thanks Yurkie!
  24. Bought a few GC games from Big Al a few weeks ago (via other forums) and couldn't have asked for a better transaction. Great guy and great seller. Wish I were a richer man because you have so much great stuff!
  25. I traded my boxed 2600 for his boxed Channel F + games and everything went perfectly. Stupus is a great guy and great communicator. I hope we'll have more transactions in the future! Thanks my friend!
