I went with the unboxed NES and and a smattering of games across gen 1 and 2 :)

Boxed would have been nice but not sure I really want Mario bros that much and it's not hard to find (and see below for my ultimate solution that just happened to be in the cabinet , I've always wanted to play super Mario world since I got a fake eBay GBA cart that died 15 years ago)

The NES is great condition, got 2nd controller

NES
Excitebike
Snake Rattle and Roll (thanks Kerr I had no idea this was a classic Rare platformer and 2 player as well)
Blaster Master

SNES
Super Mario world plus all stars

Megadrive
Steel Empire
Streets of Rage boxed complete , near mint (£19)
Sonic and Knuckles

N64
Jet Force Gemini complete (excellent condition)

Should be fun

It was tempting to get Zelda ALTTP and Super Metroid but already played them..

And the gold Zelda cart was gone already!

Vagrant story is great, I have it digital on ps3. Holds up fairly well on the HDTV .

Similar price in the shop when I saw it, interesting action battle and targeting system. The comic book style dialogue is less plodding than most RPGs scrolling text boxes.

I considered secret of evermore on the action RPG front but it's a little dear for what seems to be considered a slightly sub par Mana like game that came from Square's first US studio. I think I will hold out for a reasonably priced cart of Secret of Mana to play 2 player co op.

I have to play through Earthbound on Wii U and also got rune factory on 3DS before I pick up any top down RPGs to be reasonable.

Forgot the mention there were 2 gradius spiritual/other name GB games for 5 and 4 quid , Nemesis 1 and 2, originally for the MSX. Might be a fun pick up for shmup play in bed on the GBA SP as I don't actually have any portable shmups apart from both Oopa games on 3DS, which are strange things (not your normal linear level and formations, just gooseberry fool going on randomly everywhere). I reckon someome will snap them both of up though.

I have played Evermore, its not a bad game but Mana is a lot better, every time I see Evermore its £40 or more.

I have one of the Nemesis games I think its 2, its a good game.

Just thought these might be of interest to some there videos of my Master system and Gameboy collections (only original and color) forgive the rubbish side ways cam etc

Well my Saturn is now equipped with an RGB SCART Cable and a modded-AR Cart so it can play backups of games I downloaded already owned. :shifty:

Looks really nice, especially on my HDTV where everything is ridiculously crisp and clear. No fuzziness at all.

RGB :wub:

My VMU turned up today as well so once the DC RGB Cable arrives I'll be getting that all set up too.

Then it's onto 50/60hz modding the Saturn.

Check out some of our stuff!

Really need to try some sort of solution for big N64 picture as some games like banjo tooie and jet Force Gemini (as I just discovered) have wide-screen modes which is pretty great. Some European geezer seems to make S-video cables for 64 that I could then convert to scart as my TV doesn't have a socket. Will that just overly process the picture and not produce much benefit though hmmm.

It's possible to accept s video through a graphics card but that would be a total ballache to set up monitoring.

It's certainly enjoyable, my set does an enviable job (although 240i retro stuff looks abysmal) but having played n64 games on emulators and sin and punishment on Wii U with hdmi I know it can be so much better.

Really enjoying my birthday treats, here are some photos I didn't really plan on sharing.

(Not great label but hard to beat the value versus picking up all the NES and SNES game separately)

Retro stuff :wub:

You'd think a retro game shop would know better than to put those bloody stickers over everything :dread:

Your right Ad7 some of these places really don't seem to think about it. The blaster master , yeah great it's on a part of the cart you can easily pull it off and clean but when the stick prices on cart labels etc it's highly annoying.

Its great to see your stuff GG I'm a big fan of empire of steel as well it's a cool game.

Lol, this comes up every time anyone sees them and it gets them going rate hard. They use a special supply of really low yield stickers that come right off anything with no residue whatsoever. Drives them mad on Facebook as someone always says "but those stickers eeeugh" :lol:

It's very helpful being able to see all the prices clearly as the carts are all laid out flat in a cabinet.

Steel Empire (as I believe it's known elsewhere and is the name in the game text) is awesome, the end of level 3 where it reverses direction and you have to speed out of a cavern at 60fps is wicked! I love it when you get surprised like that especially in an old game.

Picked up a few things from cex in passing; PC copies of Toca Race Driver and NFS III Hot Pursuit,and PS2 copies of Ridge Racer V and Star Trek Encounters. I already had RRV but the paper case slip had been damaged - this copy was in much better nick and cost 50p so seemed a worthwhile improvement.

For you NES collectors out there I'd recommend this top 100 list. You might not agree with the order but I have discovered some games through this I never knew about.

This sounds great on paper... but I wonder if it is just a port of the previous 360/PS3 Mega Drive Collection? I love the idea of Sega taking a fresh look at the presentation and the included games.

Having sold my PS3 and Mega Drive Collection physical copy (much to my deep regret), I'm totally fine with a straight port.

This is pretty much the equivalent of a megadrive mini classic so I'm in
