  1. Couldn’t find a dedicated thread for the first Castlevania on the NES/FC so here it is. I played through the NES version a few years back on an emulator with save states and a rewind option. I really enjoyed it, but still found it very hard towards the end (especially the boss fight with death and the corridor leading up to it). Yesterday, I fired up the Japanese version of Castlevania Anniversary Collection on Switch and was surprised to find an Easy Mode option! I took it gratefully and completed the game in one sitting. You take less damage, don’t get knocked back and retain pow
  2.

  4. For anyone interested in seeing the lineup there's a full list here https://snk40th.com/ Picked this up on a whim as I love these sorts of collections, there's always a chance of finding an undiscovered gem. And....well it's interesting so far. I've played a few of the arcade games in this collection and their NES counterparts. The main draw for me was Ikari Warriors since I'd heard they'd solved the issue with the lack of a rotary stick (they've essentially made it a twin stick setup with shooting and grenades being on the triggers.) Great fun, if a little too difficul
  5. Whoever this is has gone above and beyond creating some amazing NES style animations. To the point where one wonders if they actually made the game in question. Behold. Stephen King's IT.
  6. The SUPER Retro Games Fair is back for our biggest event yet! This is the biggest video game sales event in West Yorkshire with over 130 tables of gaming goodies and over 50 sellers with 1000s of retro games, consoles, computers, artwork, imports, accessories, toys, modified consoles, bartop arcades and much much more all for sale No need to get up early for the car boot or wait for the postman from ebay! Here you can see the condition in person before you buy! Whether you are a big collector or just getting into old gaming there will be plenty
  7. Hi all. I've currently got a UK NES with an Everdrive type of cart for it. I can play 100's of awesome old NES games at a the press of a button. However, from watching programs like Game Center CX, I've always wanted a Famicom along with those quirky Famicom games. The cases, the colours, the indecipherable text all make me want to collect a few key Famicom titles. I've just bought an AV modded Famicom (arriving this week sometime) but would like to ask your opinions on what games I should buy for it. Not necessarily the best games (though they must be good fun still) but one that tick
  8. I'm at home sick as a dog today and I didn't want to make it worse by playing any 3D games so I pulled out the old C64 and booted up Raid on Bungeling Bay. It's an ancient top down shooter notable because it was one of Will Wrights early games. Apparently designing the cities in the game inspired him to make Sim City. Anyway knowing this bit of ionformation I started playing around with it and it dawned on me that there's some simulation work happening under the hood. I followed some planes that had strafed my carrier back to their island and they actually landed on a r
  9. Hi everyone - I'm hoping to garner some opinions on a retro gaming idea, if you would be able to help... I've got a business opportunity focused on gaming (arcade & consoles only at the moment) and one idea I've had to make it a bit more interesting to current and potential gamers is to provide a service a bit like Graze, Pact Coffee, Abel & Cole, etc. The idea is that you can go online, select which consoles you own and subscribe to a service that posts you a different game every month. You can play it and then send it back or you can keep it for an extra fee.
  10. Just found out there was a musical "shoot'em-up" more than a decade before Rez burst onto the scene. I'm talking about Otocky, a Famicom Disk System game from 1987 designed by Toshio Iwai, released only in Japan, and endorsed by an adult movie actress (!!) named Natsuki Ozawa. This is what wikipedia had to say about it: So anyone ever play this? It looks pretty weird to say the least... I also found this cool gif

  12. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/560468638/nintendo-nes-library-guide-and-review-book-of-750 It already raised it's goal (50k as of writing, wanted 15k) and sounds mighty fine in the page department (450+!). What more could NES fans want? A page each for every game? 800+ pages? As the kickstarter notes it probably already weighs as much as it should, being hardcover. Every system needs one of these. I love what ROM does (Mega Drive: Collected Works) but a big thick hardback just detailing every game on a particular system is another matter!
  13. Wasn't sure where to ask with no EverDrive thread so I figured I'd make one. EverDrives are flash carts made for retro consoles, as a brief summary. The upside to using these is there is no emulation when using the original hardware for these old games. Got a Master (System) Everdrive last year and only just started organizing the roms, but in two instances now certain roms crash: Super Tetris (as soon as you press anything, otherwise it runs) Street Fighter 2 (I got up to Balrog before it decided to crap out on me, God this looks amazing considering the hardware it's on, mind.) I've got
