  1. I don't trust that site one bit. People can claim all they want that it only accounts for "sold" listings (which I doubt), but I know for a fact it doesn't account for games found within a lot. The trackers search for the name of a game, but don't notice if the game happened to be part of a group of others, which artificially affects the game's "value".
  2. Hehe, is it Book Off in Costa Mesa? If so, they got those carts in a few weeks ago. Book Off used to be a cheap place, but now they have a couple guys there that use PriceCharting.com to come up with insane prices. There were about 40 or 50 carts originally. They hadn't been priced yet when I was there three weeks ago, so they refused to sell them to me.
  3. I could really use one of these too. If you ever make any more, I'd be down for it.
  4. Oh my god, that's awful!! Keep a sharp eye on local pawn shops, flea markets, and Craigslist ads. Odds are the thieves are gonna want to flip that stuff quickly. Get a police report too with as detailed a list as you can. Also, if you had any unique items or games with unusual markings on them, put an eBay search for them and we might be able to catch the thief.
  5. I organize my cords into large gallon size Ziploc bags according to which system they belong to, then shove them all into a plastic bin. It's not always the quickest to access, but it's tidy and prevents tangles.
  6. I just remembered, Final Fantasy III (FF6) on the SNES had an updated version that fixed the "Relm glitch". In early run cartridges, if you made Relm use Sketch on particularly large sized enemies, sometimes a glitch will occur that scrambles the characters onscreen into random NPC sprites. If you save the game after that, unpredictable results will occur. I did it by accident as a kid and ended up with thousands of Illumina and Atma Weapon swords! Poor Kefka got carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey. But I heard it also can corrupt the save file, so beware?
  7. I've been trying out this new RGB mod. It really does look spectacular! Here's a couple cellphone pics I took of the LCD screen:
  8. The original Legend of Zelda had a couple different versions. The later version has a lot more text at the Game Over screen, and I believe it also cleans up some of the Engrish in the intro screen.
  9. It must still be sold out, 'cause I've been calling Ticketmaster non-stop for some seats at the Konami Stadium. They keep acting like they don't know what I'm talking about. Also, there's only 5 years left until we'll have robots, jetpacks, and landmines integrated into Major League Baseball.
  10. Even component video has been getting phased out from most TVs being sold here in the US. Now it's all HDMI. Using an external upscaler like the XRGB Framemeister not only makes all your old consoles future proof, it scales the images up much better than any TV's internal scaler.
  11. You know what's one Neo Geo game that doesn't get much love? Puzzled (aka "Joy Joy Kid") People just pass it off as a boring Tetris clone without actually playing it. Weighing in at just 22 Mb, it's the most graphically primitive of the entire Neo Geo library. But it's the gameplay that matters most, and Puzzled excels in that regard. You don't simply clear lines, but instead must solve each puzzle to release the balloon at the bottom of the stage. As the game progresses the pieces begin to drop faster and faster. The game enjoys putting you at the edge of your seat, particularly when the "serious business" music starts playing. But all remains fair, and when you survive with your split-second decisions, it's an incredible sense of accomplishment. To get the true ending, you also have to beat it twice Ghosts 'n' Goblins style. I've never done it.
  12. It looks really sharp! I appreciate all the effort you went through to make this happen.
  13. I was thinking more like a Roller Controller game, sorta like the 2600 version of Crossbow. Trackball games are a lot of fun, but there's so few of them. Great news on Tac/Scan and Super Bagman. I'm really looking forward to those!
  14. Scramble Zoo Keeper Super Bagman Tac/Scan Star Castle Gravitar Bosconian Crossbow ... and dare I say it... Chiller?
  15. Really? Yeah, if you want it, send me a PM. I could probably dig it up and send it your way for cheap.
