  1. Barricade myself in my house and use quarantine as an excuse. Actually though, ice water helps me big time when I’m either outside or I’m in a place with bad AC.
  2. Any fans of 3D Land on the 3DS? I haven’t played it in years but I remember loving that one.
  3. I ask myself this every time I pop in Animal Crossing but here I am at 100+ hours
  4. Title says it all, but if you want some quick fun on the NES what cartridge are you putting in? I’m a fan of Bump ‘n’ Jump and Eliminator Boat Duel for this purpose. Ice Hockey is great too. Millipede as I’m a big fan of any frantic vertical shooter from the Atari era. While I wouldn’t call it fast paced, I do enjoy Ice Climber for a short pick-up-and-play session.
  5. I’d play Snatcher over all of the above, but that’s just preference lol
  6. The one where Mario swallows the puzzle piece and the man in the big yellow hat has to take him to the hospital. (Super Mario World)
  7. It’s hard to say, most good digital only games eventually get a physical release, either via standard retail or a limited run. So a lot of the really good games we could suggest to you may have limited print physical copies floating around somewhere.
  8. And here are photos of the North American copy of Alex Kidd in Shinobi World. Check out that sexy blue label! As mentioned above, this game ONLY came with a blue cartridge in North America. So if you see a red cartridge, it’s PAL. SMS is region free, but just a bit of info for those who are shooting for the North American set. Other factors for identifying North American copies: vertical manuals and only English-language on the back of the box. There are exceptions to these rules on a few SMS games, however. Alex Kidd in Shinobi World, if I remember correctly, was originally going to be an entry in the Shinobi series simply titled “Shinobi Kid,” but then Sega decided to throw Alex Kidd into the game at the last minute. So this is really more “Shinobi” than “Alex Kidd.”
  9. Some big Sega purchases here! Robo Aleste is a sequel/Spin-off to MUSHA. I haven’t played MUSHA so I can’t tell you which is “better,” but going by the price, desirability, and praise of MUSHA, I’m going to hazard a guess that MUSHA is the better game. Power Strike on the SMS is the first in the line of Aleste/MUSHA games, and is one of the pricier SMS games. Alex Kidd in Shinobi World is probably my my most wanted SMS game and it’s one of the heavies in the North American library. It’s gaining traction as more people learn about it, so I was glad to get this one both because I genuinely want to play it and because it’s super hot/popular amongst Sega fans right now, so every online listing right now tends to get expensive (for SMS prices, anyway) very quickly. I’m also gonna go ahead and say AKiSW is my first “big dick”-style purchase. There were two on eBay: this one with a BIN above the historical “sold for” prices and one that was an auction. I just said “Screw this, I don’t want to fight with other bidders.” So I did the BIN. I don’t even care, I’m so happy to have this one. And it’s in great shape.
  10. I was joking (I grew up with GC) but I’m also not impressed by $$$ value
  11. I had a Commodore 64 but sold it when I needed the cash. I’ve still got an Atari 400. My brother’s wife’s family has got an old Leading Edge they said they would give me, so I’m looking forward to that.
  12. I got a CIB Gameboy Micro for $15 once. I was excited until I turned it on and noticed the entire screen was yellowed to hell and back because the previous owner was a smoker. It wasn’t the changeable plastic piece over the screen either... it was the actual unit’s screen.
