Re: What is the best Sega Genesis/Master System?

I'm kind of wondering why you and so many people now want to play vintage games but only on non-original hardware. What's wrong with using an actual Sega Genesis to play Sega Genesis games? Do people just want a challenge now to get games to play right, using a real console is too easy?

Re: Anyone selling their Super Sprint?

Photo backgrounds look different? Both have a large soccer poster behind the SS! Both SS's have red start buttons! Both sellers are selling MK4! What a coincidence! :D There's a more simple explanation for what's going on. One of the sellers is stalking the other one, trying to exactly copy their l...

Re: [FS] Huge gaming collection for sale [Over 5000 items, location: CZECHIA, EUROPE]

I am located in the Czech Republic, Europe, so personal pickup would be preferred as it is a very large collection. If you really prefer everything to be picked up in person then why register to a Canada specific internet forum? Last I checked the Czech Republic isn't reachable by car from anywhere...

Re: Anyone have/use a HD Antenna?

We've been using basic rabbit ears on top of the TV and can get CBC, CTV, TVO, French CBC, and Global. It's the same antenna we've had back when analog was in use, there's really no difference between an analog and digital antenna besides marketing. We tried using a large "digital/HD" ante...

Re: Dead cart :(

If it's the board that's defective you could swap the chip with another game, like a sports game that uses the same board.

Could be something simple like a bad solder joint with the chip.

Re: Anybody have Zelda for the NES or N64?

Or just get the Gamecube versions. No idea what the current prices are on those. Personally I don't like the 3D Zeldas so maybe your wife won't either if she's new to the series, I'd suggest getting the various Gameboy/GBC/GBA Zelda games. Also there was a direct sequel for A Link to the Past on the...

Re: What happened to this site?

It's a combination of several things. There's not much else to keep people interested in checking the site often either, like seeing other peoples' finds. There aren't really any games to find anymore, at least not often enough. Any other discussions like favourite games for certain consoles were mo...

Re: Anyone ever take apart a cabinet to move it?

Do you have any appliances in your apartment? Fridges and stoves are usually 30 inches so there has to be a way to get them inside.

The arcade collectors spilled out of their section onto every section of the forum so the console collectors mostly left.

Re: Possible score? Amazing Tater at Value Village

Sweet! I was finally able to test it last night and was happy to find that it does indeed work just fine. Anyone have experience with cleaning cartridges? The front looks like its just grime, but the back looks like there is maybe some discoloration or something. Usually just paper towel and Windex...

Re: Worth of Lot

In general, I usually stick to these rules when buying: ⋅ If you're buying a lot, then the total value is considerably less than the individual values summed up ⋅ The total value of a lot is usually the resale value of the "key" games in the lot (everything else is fre...

Re: Worth of Lot

It really depends on the condition on the games too, most disc based games for PS1 I see are in terrible condition. Same for PS2 really. Even if they were in perfect shape it's not worth buying for that much, in bulk maybe $0.50-$1.00 each. There's really nothing of significant value or rarity in th...

Very nice find. I never played it but it's the sequel to Kwirk if it helps. Kwirk is pretty common for the system.

Re: SNES Mini at Walmart

Stopped by Walmart yesterday (Dec 17) and to my surprise there was a Nintendo rep there re-organizing the display case... he asked if he could help me find anything... I asked him not to laugh at me but if he had any SNES minis. His response was "Sorry, No, but good luck with that." His f...
