I can recommend sd2nes for many many hours of snes/famicom fun and action without paying for overpriced games each time. Not cheap but a good investment when you're serious about playing snes.

Or an Everdrive. Sure they cost $100-150 even for the NES versions, but being able to download the entire NES library in alphabetical order all on one cart and play it in an original system is rad as ****.

But then I won't have the fun of finding carts in the wild. But flash cards seem cool. And I like anything Hoff hypes.

Yeah, in all honesty I'm still torn.  I like the idea of selecting a cartridge from the shelf.  I was never a fan of mass collections of digital files in non-physical form (don't ask me about my music collection though...   :-\ ), as I have a hard time picking something.  Physical media works much better for me.  So I may consider a flash cart, but I'll probably stick to cartridges.

I personally collect nes cartridges and have that awesome sd2nes with over 11k roms on sd (ok, I will never be able to play all of them, but its good to know that they are there and ready to play).

And the nes cartridges are way cooler than the snes ones and look better on the shelf ;D

No Trinitrons?! Step your game up! I wanna see them PVM/BVMs

Ugh....you've got me looking at PVMs now. But I don't understand how to hook them up to my SNES or n64. I found this article that talks about SCARTs and other bits of hardware but I'm a plebe. Help me understand jwaz.

Shoot! I have my ngpc in a storage container.

If you bought the namco museum game for the ngpc, it came with a thin circular piece of plastic that fit inside the d-pad.

It worked "similar" to the original 4-way joystick on an original Pac-man arcade. It made it so you can make turns quicker since you aren't wasting precious milliseconds clicking the diagonals.

I'm going to look for a picture online.

Edit 1: oops! It wasn't namco museum. It was just released as pac-man.

Edit 2: It includes the "cross ring" in the package. See picture.

I had a NGPC back in the  day but ended up selling it because the lack of back/front lighting bothered me too much.

Did anyone ever come out with a kit for that?

Not a sealed collector myself, but they are out there and willing to pay insane amounts for sealed games. A few years ago I sold a sealed Super Metroid and bought an AES with the proceedings. You probably could've gotten $40-60 for a sealed Crush Roller(more for the EU version) and bought like 8 more NGPC games ;)

My salad was just tossed.  Someone is doing front lit mods for the ngpc: http://rosecoloredgaming.wordpress.com/system-mods/



edit: looks like they are not taking orders currently.  Still might be worth asking for an update.

I'll get back to you on that.  I just did a search and most of the ROM sites are down.  I've got a HD somewhere from a dead PC that's got them on there that I'll hook up.

I remember there being a whole folder of homebrew ROM's.  Not sure if anyone is doing development anymore; at one point I wanted to do a port of DarkStalkers but never progressed beyond the 'desire' of it.

I would love a homebrew port of SNK's Victory Road (Ikari Warriors 2) ~ most people consider it meh to average but I loved that game.  It's one of those situations where you love everything about a game - even wanting to find the original designers just so you can buy them a beer even when everyone else thinks the game is average.


edit: The Atari St only had a 3 voice sound chip and the music for it came out great so with some love the NGPC should be able to handle it.


The ingame play for this and the Amiga version got TOTALLY boned - despite being 68K machines w/ specialized chips.  The NES port was also crap and they changed a bunch of stuff. :(

I merged my gaming/console gaming area into:



Consoles only Xbox 360 and RetroPie.

(as posted in setup thread awhile back)

I do need a new picture though, as I removed keyboard tray so my stuff is on my desk, and made a make-shift monitor stand as well.

Sorry to say I was unable to recover the roms off the HD. :(  I thought the motherboard died but more than likely it was the HD.

If you look for a ROM pack I'd say they should be fairly complete - these were all tiny games.

ROM pack = just slang for a .ZIP file full of dumped rom images from the cartridges; in the case of homebrews that will be the only way to get them.  There might be a flashcart floating around too that you can load the images onto to play on a real Neo Geo Pocket.

BTW: If you are going to get into PCE and are contemplating CD-ROM games - stick with the Duo R.  Much more reliable!

I was going to give you **** for the N64 collection, until I read your caption.  :'(  Can I help you rebuild that collection? What's your favorite N64 game?

Also, no PS2/GC/Xbox? Did you skip that generation for any particular reason?

I was not a big N64 guy, always hated the graphics and controller but I do occasionally miss Bangai O and Killer Instinct Gold. Never got a chance to finish Majora's Mask either. I only had like 14 or 15 N64 games. :(

I did have a PS2 and GC as well, but I traded my PS2 to get a 360 and sold the GC at a pawn shop. The GC had some fantastic games. Windwaker and Eternal Darkness are probably my favorite games for the system. Metroid Prime was incredible as well.

When I was in school I was doing 4 moves a year sometimes.  I've had most of my collection since high school, so I've always had a lot of stuff to move.  I eventually gave up and just kept all my video games at my parents' house until I finished college.  :'(  Was not fun.  And now I'm basically just dreading whenever the next time is I'll have to move.

This is for sure not a moving friendly hobby. Over half the boxes from all the stuff I've accumulated in my adult life is video game related, and it was a huge hassle tearing down, packing, and rebuilding the display. But it makes me smile every time I glance to the left :D

The only saving grace is that the display gets cooler every time you rebuild it! I have these cool led backlit frosted glass shelves I wanna get to display consoles next time I move, so it's sort of exciting to dream about.
