  1. Lochjaw manual in this lot. https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/129066001
  2. Top two JRPG for me, especially to play with your kids. Finished it with my son when he was 10. He still talks about hunting Toko-Tokos. The soundtrack is amazing; same composer who did many soundtracks for Ghibli films. Other fav is DQ8. Both are developed by Level 5.
  3. For me, the nature of what is fun has changed. In the 80s and 90s, the software was what was fun. I was interested in the hardware only to the extent that it enabled me to run the software I wanted or needed. Now what's fun is collecting the hardware and getting a system to run as smoothly as it possibly can. The software is just a tool to measure my success at doing that.
  4. I mentioned this a long time ago in the main thread, but getting this license is the first step toward a killer app.
  5. My guess is that there's a ton of profit in slabbed NES games.
  6. This one ended tonight for $20K. Not as many sealed games in this lot. https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/125424566
  7. This auction ended tonight -- $30K for 27 sealed NES games. This follows the $10K Air Raid auction. https://www.shopgoodwill.com/Item/125194900
  8. This auction recently ended on Shopgoodwill. I didn't buy it, but I think it is hilarious. I like to imagine that the owner got really excited to play chess on the Intellivision, even buying a pawn joystick for the disc, got beat down by the computer, and was so mad that they donated the whole thing.
  9. I have an original XB One 500GB model that I bought from Goodwill a while back. It worked fine for a while, but then the display started to go on the fritz, and then I didn't get a display at all. I realized that the HDMI Out port had been damaged--a couple of pins are exposed. Maybe I pulled out the plastic around the pins when plugging and unplugging a cable. You can see it from a couple of angles in the photos below. I don't want to pay to repair this, and I don't have the skills to do it myself. I'm still logged in with my user info from the last time the display worked. I was wondering if I could wipe the info from the unit and sell it for parts or just recycle it. Is it as easy as opening the case and removing the HDD? Thanks for any advice!
  10. Got my replacement joycons today. Look brand new. Took a little less than a month for turnaround.
  11. The 8BitDo BT adapters are only $11.47 now on Amazon.
  12. Thank you! I went ahead and ordered a Seagull 78 to pair with it too.
  13. Apologies if this has been brought up in another thread, but I just got one of these and want to use it with my 7800, among other consoles. I realize that there won't be two-button functionality. Looking for some peace of mind that it is safe to use with the 7800 from folks who have done so for a while. Thanks!
  14. The British have a pretty good catalog too, including Elite, Golden Eye, and Tomb Raider. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/jun/03/30-greatest-british-video-games
