Where can I find more Famicom information?

What are some good online resources for information about the Famicom, Famicom Disk System, and the games that were released for it? Are there any comprehensive lists out there regarding cartridge colors, types, scans, variants, original contents, release dates, etc? I'm not sure how accurate the information is on Wikipedia, but the only other websites I've found are http://www.famicomdisksystem.com/ and https://famicomworld.com/

This is in no way complete, but the nice coverage, omake extras, and the little mini reviews are pretty helpful if you're looking for some learning/light reading.

Normally I would not have thought of this at all, but keep the site bookmarked for the HuCard (PCE) stuff.

Hardcore Gaming 101 released an outstanding book about the Famicom Disk System. Not much on variants, but it does have at least a blurb write-up on literally every game released for the console, its relative rarity in the wild, and level of Japanese proficiency required to play it. You can get a PDF copy for only $5 here: http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/books/hg101-presents-the-complete-guide-to-the-famicom-disk-system/

Thanks for the share -- will need to pick this up. Just rec'd their Kickstarter book on obscure Japanese games, great quality.
