Last pickups until about mid September.

Well, these are my last video game buys until September. I’m saving up for 2 cert-vouchers, one I’m getting tomorrow and the other about mid September. I want to get my CEH but that is about a $1000 for just the voucher, if I failed that test I would vomit and just quit , lol. Anyway on to the games.

Tennis for the NES. You may ask “why did I buy this”? Well here is the answer: There are about 10ish NES games that have a Famicom to NES adapter in the game. These games have 5 screws and do not have the tabs at the top of the cart. Well I opened it up and there wasn’t a adapter, ugh. Anyway, I only paid $6 for it and now I have Tennis for my NES.


Now for the games below. I’m venturing into the Japanese market for games. I got these from the retro game store that I have been going to for the past few months. I like the people that run it and they aren’t trying to rip people off. The prices are very reasonable. 

The top game is Kirby Superstar Super Deluxe. It is a side scroller, you know Kirby doing what he does best, suck things in and spit them out.

The bottom is Kirby Bowl. This game is a little odd, from what I watched on Youtube it is kinda like a puzzle ball game, kirby being the ball. Sorta like mini golf.

I plan to pick up a SNES that I can mod so I do not mess up my really nice SNES so I can play these games.


Well that is it for now.

Old copies of Gyromite work like that I think.

That first Kirby game is Kirby Super Star in the US.  Kirby Bowl is called Kirby's Dream Course in the US.  Both are great.

Yeah, Gyromite is one of the 10. Has to be the 5 screw no clip game.

Japanese games, neato. I have a couple but I found them difficult to play with the menus all in Kanji: Wizardry ! I-III for Game Boy and Culdcept II for Dreamcast.

I’ve looked at imports for the Saturn but the other retro store I go to think they are made of gold. They are common titles that go for no more than $15 and the store wants $30 plus for them.

Thats cool you have the GB and Dreamcast games. Did you see the Wonder Swan I posted about a few weeks back?

Yea, that thing is pretty cool. Support for vertical play is interesting to me. And Taito onboard making games for it. I want some shmups on that thing.

Only sports NES game I played was Double Dribble. I liked that one.

I have Blades of Steel and Double Dribble. I was hoping the Tennis had the Famicom adapter in it.

I like tennis games. I admit I played my bit of the old Atari version.
