  1. A community such as this is what's saving the Jaguar. Gamers & collectors have shown far more support for this awkward device than even Atari could muster. Sites like AA define the Jags legacy.


    For me the Jag lives in this neat little realm alongside systems like the Vectrex; it's got this charm that you cannot quite put into words. Does any of it make any logical sense? Of course not. Leave me alone and get off my lawn.

    or do they? retrogamerstuff seems perpetually sold out, saw on twitter they may have a few more coming for UK shops but didn't specify which...ebay prices are insane too, nuts to that.


    i've finally landed a jaguar (boxed no less!), should be here in a few days.  ive a few games on deck but really wanted a flashcart to explore the library/homebrew stuff. any suggestions on where to find one of these at what they're usually sold for? appreciate any help offered here!



    Retrotowers has some in stock right now, I just checked. (if you don't mind paying a bit extra since it's overseas)

    So getting ride of a Lynx and SD cart freed up enough space to appease the wife?  🤔

    That would be the first thing for me to kept cuz you get the whole library of games(and the system) for half the size of a shoebox.



    I made the decision to only collect for a select few systems; the rest would be sold to make space/fund collecting for the systems in question.

  4. Most of the SNES games which use special chips can be bought cheap. I paid $20 for an SFC lot including Super Mario Allstars with SMW, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario RPG and Yoshi's Island. Starfox and Doom are also cheap.


    The SD2SNES is worth it just for the ability to play sound rip roms. If you don't care about that or MSU1 hacks, then just stick to the Super Everdrive.

    This isn't true.


    The SD2SNES handles some VERY expensive games that the Super Everdrive does not. With the insane price-climbing recently I highly recommend a SD2SNES.


    The only games the SD2SNES doesn't play are:


    Dirt Trax FX


    PGA Tour 96

    PGA European Tour

    Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

    Star Fox

    Star Fox 2

    Street Fighter Alpha 2

    Power Rangers Zeo Battle Racers

    Kirby Superstar

    Kirby's Dreamland 3

    Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

    Stunt Race FX



    With the SD2SNES also able to play the MSU games I know regret will eventually set in that you didn't grab one; I speak from experience.

  5. Thanks. I just added personal vs. personnel:



    I honestly apologize, I had a bit to drink. My wife had consultation for surgery today, likely has breast cancer.


    I don't mean to be a downer or rain on anyone's parade, life just gets real tough at times. Believe it or not you guys here at AA entertain me daily; it's a much appreciated distraction. This whole MK debacle has been a real must-needed diversion. Why couldn't he just lie and stall a bit longer?!
