  1. Vidales? He's on facebook groups and IG and things
  2. Sorry to bump this, just going back through the old debates. I voted for 64 but what I'm really here to find out is why people love 8 so much. It's honestly my least favorite of the console releases (never played the handheld stuff). I find the tracks boring (they do look great) and the item box distribution is the absolute worst. They just don't help/hurt enough to make a difference. Passing people and getting passed rarely happens short of someone making a colossal mistake. And hell, even falling off the track is barely penal anymore. I'm sure some would consider these plusses but it
  3. I gave it a 3. I'd never deny it it's place in history but I was an intellivision kid and even then I thought Atari sucked.
  4. Turbografx is the best, welcome sir.
  5. Got a few extras to move along if anyone is interested. Down to sell or trade, I'm into all sorts of stuff but minty NES/N64/Turbografx cib's are always interesting. A few specific things I'm looking for are.... a cib of Bomberman Second Attack, cib of Giga Wing 2, as well as a sealed copy of Dungeon Explorer for the turbografx and Rondo of Blood for the pce but don't be afraid to send me your lists. I'd also be willing to buy those if you have no interest in trading. These are the rough values I have for these. Have no clue about Gotcha Force as the only comp I'm aware of is a 9.6 A
  6. I'm sure @Gloves would never use such an obvious alt name as one that clearly pays homage to his home country. If you need someone I'll see if I can get my boy @Mittens to create an account and play.
  7. Nice but the copy of super mario 3 sealed if in great shape is what brings the money. If you can get people on board to consider it 'new' then you could get more but you're probably looking at $400 ish.
  8. Appreciate you checking in but sounds like it will be too much of a time commitment for me to participate. Good luck to all, and may the odds be ever in your favor.
  9. Sounds interesting. How much time do you generally need to be able to devote to this each week?
  10. Sorry for being unclear. Yes, this is exactly what I was saying. Many people (myself included) have graded sealed games because well...to be honest I wasn't going to open them anyways with the money they command. So since they were never going to be opened there's a 'might as well grade them' or at least a 'no harm in grading them' type of attitude. CIB feels very different to me though, it just doesn't feel right for whatever that's worth. But the larger point is that I know plenty of people that feel this way, people that have sent hundreds of games to wata/vga but have never done so wi
  11. I don't know if we 'need' another grading company but depending on price I think there could be room for one. For example I think Wata's lowest tier was $25 (for sealed) when they first started, and a plain old nes sized acrylic case costs $20 from CGA. So I think there's a value proposition for people who buy cases like that merely to protect their games if you can be solvent in that neighborhood. I get you'd want to start small, get the process down, make sure you can meet deadlines, etc.. but just grading black box and Zelda nes cib's seems too limiting to me. Grading is already a
  12. I gave it a 7 for the 'more than a few games you like" description. N64 library is terrible overall, just not nearly diverse enough. But as others have said the top end of the library is excellent. I'd honestly put the top 10 or games of this console against any other.
  13. Yeah I think punishing it for the ports is unfair. It does take away from the 'specialness' (definitely a word) of the console now but many of those never would've happened had the console been around for a full cycle. But if you do want to punish it for the ports then you should probably also give it credit for the games that certainly would've been on it down the road. Panzer Orta, Shenmue II, HotD3, Toe Jam and Earl III, etc....
  14. I gave it an 8 which (as someone who really enjoys it) feels like as high as it can realistically go. Great arcade-y system with excellent fighters, shmups, etc... and even though they're always quickly surpassed in every era, the sports games were great as well. Several quirky/unique games on the console that kind of set it apart from everything else, but ultimately this was a tweener system for most people that didn't stand a chance when the PS2 was released. I think if this had more time going head to head with just the PS1 things could've worked out differently.......maybe. The control
