  1. this is pretty important. to whoever is about to bid on this item: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=4&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&mpre=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fitm%2F251266792164%3Fru%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com%252Fsch%252Fi.html%253F_from%253DR40%2526_sacat%253D0%2526_nkw%253D251266792164%2526_rdc%253D1 its FAKE. and as proof, here is the picture from google images that this guy stole and cropped so that it only shows one of the carts: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Dmi7Txvz7iI/SkESNA4mBxI/AAAAAAAABLw/gdbT0fgIDr4/s400/Nintendo-World-Championship-Gold-Gray.jpg&imgrefurl=http://blog.pricecharting.com/2009/06/how-i-got-nintendo-world-championships.html&h=300&w=400&sz=21&tbnid=J7zH-Tr2eEej9M:&tbnh=95&tbnw=127&zoom=1&usg=__rmRER7RNFk6Llj14QJ5Nx-ZWya4=&docid=xN-WR4fEvf9poM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=fh99UafyKKi90AH334CYDQ&ved=0CEAQ9QEwAQ&dur=187 it even has the same green background and everything. and if you look at the ebay item, you see that random scribble of lines next to his name? that covering the shadow/smudge on the cart so that people dont recognize it from the actual picture. what a ripoff!
  2. To Clarify: A first party retro console made by Nintendo To me it would have: -HDMI out -a good menu system with saving and cheat options. -WiFi to download games, online high score boards -Way to play NES/SNES/N64 cartridges, and potentially GB/GBC/GBA games -SD cart slot -Controller cables with various inputs so you can use NES/SNES/N64 controllers. -Power in box so plug doesn't contain a brick -Excellent unique Nintendo styling, a new take on retro not necessarily emulating the NES or SNES What about for you? Do you think they would ever build it? Seems like there would be a big market for something like this... I could see them doing an SNES classic and N64 classic and maybe doing something like this 3-5 years down the road (keeping my fingers crossed anyway.)
  3. For higher res versions of the photos: http://imgur.com/gallery/uld3G Here sits four boxes of games, which actually contained a few more than 301 games, but I wasn't counting the duplicates. Short version of the story - While I had a US Nintendo NES since the day it was released, I started working in the video games business for US offices of Japanese game publishers and we had a lot of Japanese Nintendo hardware in the office. I loved this stuff and always wanted to get back into it. So I did! I love getting boxes from Japan. I don't know why, but getting Japanese stuff from the homeland just makes it all seem more "legit" for some reason. It also could be because it's my favorite place on earth so receiving something from there makes me miss it more. I have to say all the games were packed VERY well! Huge thanks to several eBay stores I bought from including pal52, hit-japan, & terryyu27 Let's unpack, shall we? This guy even threw in a couple of bonus carts! They'll most certainly get some positive feedback from me! AND they included the alcohol wipes as well! Another awesome bonus! Ahh, nothing makes my day more than boxes full of classic, awesome, retro, Japanese video games!!! So a couple of things to note: Famicom carts come in all different colors and sizes. Most of them follow a uniform casing, but not all of them. Most them also DO NOT have end labels on the top spine, which is REALLY ANNOYING and I'll probably have to put some sort of labels on them because it makes them nearly impossible to organize. So for this exercise I'll sort the best I can. First off, I will sort by "carts with end labels" and I'll also sort them again by publisher. So for example here we have Namcot, Konami, Bandai, etc... Once I've exhausted carts with end labels then I'll sort by cart color. Sorting by color helped me find duplicates easier. There were a few exceptions that I made. For example, Taito carts did not have an end label, but they had a slightly different shell. So I included them with the black colored carts, but put them in their own category. Here's the rest of the black carts. Next we move on to more colorful carts! Because stuff in Japan is happy, fun, and full of color! (I'm not complaining! I love this!) Here's a closer look at white and red carts. I tried as hard as I could to group colors and gradients of color together, but it wasn't always easy. But really this helped a *LOT* sorting out the duplicate carts I had (which was only about 20) The blue carts seemed to have the most amount of gradients and were more difficult than any other color to separate. There were colors that were close to gray, green, purple, etc. I'll probably re-organize these again at some point anyway. The rest of the carts with the weird "poop colored" ones at the end! lol I also separated out any "Famiclone" carts as best I could. (If anyone notices clones in the rest of the lot, please let me know. I'm not up to expert level yet on identifying the harder to spot clones.) I also separated out the "oversized" carts. This just made it easier once again to spot duplicates and since all the other carts were *about* the same size, everything just looked more uniform by putting these on their own. So there you have it! My tubs of carts! I love them! They really flash me back to my early days of when I was in the video games biz (you can look me up on Moby Games!) Here's Tub #1 And Tub #2 - I'm pretty sure it won't be long now until I start Tub #3! Now it's time to start playing! Might as well start, like any good story, at the beginning! I'm curious to know how other people sort their Famicom carts? By company? By color? By alphabetical? Release date? Etc. Thanks for reading and please be sure to leave comments and feedback! EDIT! Here is an update that adds another 75ish carts to the collection! For higher res photos: http://imgur.com/gallery/3irE0 So I almost should have waited a day before posting the "Unboxing 301 Famicom carts" as I got another box in today! This one contained about 75 more carts. Like with the previous lot, I started to go through them and check to see if there were any duplicates in the mix. Thankfully only a handful of duplicates from the carts I already had and the ones that were dupes actually had better labels! So win-win there! Once again I sort of organized them by color so it was easier for me to find those dupes. Here's a closer look at the carts organized by color... Gotta love that colorful Japanese goodness! These really are some of my favorite carts ever made! In this lot I also picked up a few of the NAMCOT games in boxes. I love this packaging! Here's a look at Metro-Cross which was never released for the NES in the US. (And it's such a fun game!!!) And the backside of Metro-Cross... And the inside! If you've never played this game with either an NES or MAME emulator, check it out. It's super fun! This one cost me a bit more money but it was worth it. Since I worked on the US version of Gun-Nac and I have had it in my collection since I was handed a copy right out of the cartons we had at ASCII, I figured having it's Japanese counter part would be nice to have in my collection as well! Thanks for reading!
  4. I'm sorry if someone asked this before, but I've been thinking about this quite a lot. How is the best way to play Nintendo Entertainment System games in 2017? As far as I know, these are my options: The NES Classic is out and even though the selection of games has some of the classics, it won't please everyone. I did some research though, and a local re-seller has one for $200. The Wii Virtual Console has pretty much every NES game I want to play, but I have no idea if the service is still working and of course, that console's not in high definition. What I like about playing NES games on the Wii is that I can purchase the games I want at a fair price (they are available for $5) and I'm already using this console a lot even if the image quality isn't that good on an HD TV. I could always track down an NES with the games I want to play and experience them in the way they were meant to be played. This is both woefully inconvenient, not to mention expensive. And there's always emulators. Personally, I try to stay away from emulators because I'm always downloading dozens of games, lose focus and end up not really playing anything. So what do you guys think?
  5. This is my wife's father's system. Was kept in VERY good shape over the years. Everything is original. The only thing missing is the manual. The box, styrofoam, system, dogbone controller, AC adapter, and RF cable are all included and in VERY good shape! http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nintendo-NES-Top-Loader-System-Original-Box-11-Games-MORE-/121739686283

    An ugly, but iconic, console.
  7. Does anyone here remember the "How to Win At Nintendo Games" series by Jeff Rovin? Launched in 1988, these were four volumes of mass market paperback books that were all text (no pictures) that gave tips, strategies and walkthroughs for various NES titles like Super Mario Bros (all 3), Castlevania, Zelda, Bart Vs the Space Mutants, etc. I believe there was also a How to Win At Super Mario Bros as well as a title for both Super NES and Sega Genesis titles. This was back in the late 1980s and through most of the 1990s before the rise of the Internet and the explosion of strategy guides (official & unofficial) being sold in stores. By the end of the 1990s, Rovin's books were obsolete thanks to the rise of online strategy guides like GameFAQs. My brother and I owned the 3rd and 4th volumes and we used these for the Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy and the Castlevania games. As much as we loved them, they weren't perfect. Some of the information was outright wrong! A specific example was Chip'n Dale Rescue Rangers on the NES - Rovin's strategy against the caterpillar/centipede boss late in the game tells you to let the red ball hit you after it collides with the boss. Supposedly, you'd be briefly invincible from the caterpillar's body parts which would go flying all over the screen. I tried this and IT NEVER WORKED!!! Also in the back of one book (either the 3rd or 4th volume), Rovin claimed there was a chocolate factory level hidden in the original NES Super Mario Bros. To this day, nobody has ever found this and Rovin never explained in any book how to access this level. What's the story with this chocolate factory from Rovin? Anyway, anyone else own any of Rovin's books? What did you think? Were they useful to you?

  16. Got a moving sale going on, prices negotiable, shipping will be the larger portion of the price....and Paypal only. Three 5200 joysticks - SOLD. Next is a hardly used Okimate Printer originally for the Commodore 64. I know most collectors have no use for old printers, but there is always one somewhere....the kicker on this one is the three UNOPENED ink cartridges (2 color, 1 black) so there might be some life left in them...I have no idea what to ask for it as the shipping might be hefty....if anyone has interest in it, just PM offer and we'll negotiate. It DOES power up, gives a blinking 'Ready' light, but I DO NOT have the extra serial cable and have not hooked it up to a real C64. Last, Nintendo DSI with four carts and charger, very clean screens (not mashed in touchscreen like some used ones) - $55 plus shipping. Will combine shipping and try to get you the best shipping rate possible...Thanks for looking!
  17. Mine is Verdun, it's (probably) the most realistic WW1 shooter out there. Grand Theft Auto 5 is a close second.
  18. SOLD!!!!!!! Thank you all for your interest!!! Hi all, Just putting a feeler out there to see if anyone might be interested in a boxed, mint Wii U console with controller, cables etc, along with a copy of Super Mario Maker... it's been used very rarely, kids prefer to play PC games... let's say $125 plus shipping? Will post pics when I get home. Thanks! Edit - Pics... sorry if it looks smudged, it's so freaking hard to get a good picture of a piano black finish!!!!
  19. Ikenie to Yuki no Setsuna (Japan Version) http://www.yesasia.com/us/1057682542-0-0-0-en/info.html $43.99 and the shop does free shipping worldwide if your price is $39USD or higher, so that's free. If you figure the digital rental from the non-Japanese e-Shop costs $40 + local taxes you're breaking even with a REAL GAME. I ordered it earlier ago, they claim their average ship time is like 2 weeks so that'll be nice.
  20. I read an article that said that Nintendo is closing the eShop in my region (https://www.vidaextra.com/wii-u/eshop-wii-u-3ds-42-paises-latinoamerica-caribe-cerrara-para-siempre-a-finales-julio). That includes the ability to download digital games, exchange codes and update games. That last one really sucks, since there are a bunch of titles that have significant updates. By any chance, is there a complete list of 3DS games that have patches? I know I'm getting a couple of 3DS games before July 31st (that's the date when Nintendo is closing the eShop apparently) and I might as well try to get games with their respective patches. Some popular games like Pokemon, which I already own, have sizeable patches that feature a bunch of improvements, so which other titles have updates available for them? Is there any way to download those patches without buying the game first? For instance, I know I'm getting Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS at some point, so I can get the patch before it's taken down. Since I brought Super Smash, any DLC worth getting before it's no longer available? Thanks in advance and I really appreciate anyone who replies as soon as possible since time is really ticking down on this one.
  21. Hi everyone, I just found my Nintendo DS Lite on one of the plastic bins I use for storage. I haven't used the system in years and when I opened it and turned it on I found that the screens have a yellowish tint to them. I did a quick research online and found that other people have the same issue with it, but I was wondering if this is a common problem most collectors are aware of or if this only happens under certain conditions (such as humidity or something). It's not clear to me if this was my fault, if this is a hardware problem that affects all systems or if it's just related to the passage of time. To be clear, the plastic bin is sealed and not in direct contact with floor, so that would discard humidity. Now I have a few questions: Is there any way to repair it or should I get another DS? Do all systems from the DS family suffer from the same problem or just the Lites? Does this also happen the DSi or DSi XL systems? Because I'd be more than glad to get one of those if it solves the problem. Finally, I also have a 3DS which I use a lot and love, is there any chance this might happen with the 3DS? Thanks in advance and I'm looking forward to reading your responses. I'll attach a picture below too.
  22. Ola Retrogamers, A month ago I finished my second prototype of a cool little mini-arcade, powered by a Raspberry Pi, housed in a reimagined 1980's tabletop, with fullsized arcade buttons and joystick: the STAR FORCE PI. I'm currently exploring the possibility to bring this system to a crowdfunding platform, and could use some feedback from some old-school gaming enthusiasts. Check out the attached picture of the finished Star Force Pi prototype, dubbed 'Stormtrooper', and read on: WHY I MADE THIS: I was tired of playing emulated games on the PC with a inappropriate controller, and I was disappointed with options like the NeoGeoX. If you get an arcade mod bartop, they're usually 9inch screen models, expensive, pretty bulky and not portable at all, and a full-sized arcade is just not an option for me. Those iCade's are crap, and handhelds don't quite deliver the same experience. So, I bought a 1984 GrandStand Star Force game, and I stared at it for a month before I decided to go ahead and build my own mini-arcade. I bought an Arcade Kit from hdhardsoft.de, added fullsized arcade controls to it, and it worked! Very well actually. To finish it, I made a video, a poster, a box and a quickguide for good measure and put it onto Facebook and people seem to love it. Originally I was going to make an how-to instructable, but it would mean sacrificing perfectly good tabletop machines for the shell, and that seems such a shame. So, I thought maybe I can build it into something that people could buy via Kickstarter. WHAT'S MY PLAN: I first made a prototype to see if I could do it, then I made a second one to see if I could make it more functional and desirable, and I just finished a third one to send off to the engineer (Hartmut @ hdhardsoft.de) of the internal arcade kit I used so he can develop a custom shield to sit onto the Raspberry Pi inside the mini-arcade (he's on-board, getit). This production piece will be the model for eventual tooling. I've also asked a 3D animator to make some mock-ups of custom housing and started emailing with a production company to get a per-unit-price estimate, so I can have all the elements ready before I go to Kickstarter and detail the plan: a modular mini-arcade that's portable, easy to use and easy to develop for. It's focused on emulation classic systems first of all, but if it gains a decent-sized backing, I want to extend into gamedevelopment (not personally, but in support of developers): The first focus is a solid device, with off-the-shelf components, built into a customizable shell, with full microswitch arcade feedback, good video and stereo sound. The second focus will be to regain the cartridge culture, by approaching developers (NV-DEV:TEAM specifically) and asking if they'd like to bring their game to the Star Force Pi in SD-card form. Of course, this will include cases, manuals, decals etc, in much the same spirit of the TurboGrafX HuCard. The third focus would be on connecting two Star Force Pi's together and play two player games on two devices. Street Fighter II. Head-to-Head. Awesome. WHAT WILL IT DO: Anything it is able to do on the current Raspberry Pi really, we just add the peripherals, put it into an attractive package and at the very least allow you to make your own magic. Actually, that's a bit simplistic, we'll be discussing with the engineer and the creator of PiPlay for a Star Force Pi specific emulator package, who's already providing support for Hartmut's arcade kits. The nice thing is that software is entirely on the SDcard, which means developers control their own content and upgrades, as do you. We'd just be supplying templates for the casing and artwork. Additionally, there's HDMI-out and USB-in on there as well, so for multiplayer, or ScummVM games that need a larger screen sometimes, you can connect it to a monitor and use any USB controller/mouse/keyboard on it. PRICE: I think a fully functional Star Force Pi with power adapter, in packaging, pretty box and fun manual should not exceed 199 euro. It's a psychological pricepoint, anything beyond that would just feel like a rip-off. I spent between 250 - 300 euro on the build, but this can be brought down with a production series. YOUR FEEDBACK: So that's why I'm here! I'm a guy that grew up with Sega, wishing he had a NeoGeo, and am now at the age I can afford one, but can't have 12 systems hooked up and hijack the TV or PC everytime I want a quick game of Splatterhouse! With the Star Force Pi I have my own little desk unit to game directly: no fuss. What do you think? Would you want one? What could we do better? What should I look out for and take care off? I'm just a guy with a screwdriver that wanted to play Metal Slug with proper arcade controls and was small enough to carry around - how can I best share this with other retrogamers? Check out the first video I made showing the 'Stormtrooper' prototype: Cheers!
