Reading the Description he describes than as mint and as close to new as possible.. The guy mentions he's selling them to fund his sealed game collection

Thanks Steve. Natsuki is a pretty fun fighter. It does have a few cheap parts but the combat engine does feel solid and the characters control really well. :)

Picked up Another World the other day for £7. I could have had the anniversary edition from GOG for a quid less but somehow 16-bit seems like the only real way to play it...

HUGE SNES fan here..and new to the site..i have a mild collection as of now - not easy getting all the titles i want with a 2 year old to raise , but before long i hope to own 75+ titles..what can i say i LOVE the old stuff..

as of now i have an FC TWIN system and 20 or so basic games - super mario 1-3, mario world, killer instict, stunt race fx, qb club, mega man x..etc..etc..

i was hoping someone on here could point me in the right direction (in THEIR opinion) what a good site is that i could get a fully functioning/cosmetically acceptable original SNES system..

my other questions is is there a wireless controller that works for the original snes system ?

thanks!!

Hi and welcome

I have used Flashback games quite a bit, they have a few nice looking SNES consoles, including this one

http://www.flashbackgames.co.uk/shop/It ... uctID=4427

As for wireless controllers, there is a few mods out there, but nothing official IIRC.

Found a CIB copy of Super Double Dragon in a Bernado's near me this weekend. Not bad for £2, but not good either as the game is pretty poor.

The game is brilliant. Get past the ropey visuals and slow pace and master the counter system. It has so many moves, all useful.

Wow. Amazing to look back through this topic to see how badly I failed and being selective.

^ If you were trying to upload it as an attachment then the board limit has been reached a loooooong time ago...

Best would be to register for a site like Photobucket, post it there and then use an image link so we can see it here. I'll go into it in more detail if you ask me to.

You've got some good stuff there by the way! :D

Agreed, those are all classics (well, except maybe the super scope stuff :wink: )

I've not heard of this one. Is it anything like Uniracers?

Oh man, I really regret not picking up a copy of this back when SNES games were dirt cheap.

Don't know if I've posted this already, but I was in Japan earlier this year and I picked up a few Super Famicom games (all cart only):

Choplifter 3
Darius Force
Final Fight 2
King of Dragons
Knights of the Round
Return of Double Dragon
Rockman X3
Sparkster
Turtles in Time

I've been after Turtles in Time for ages, but again, the prices it goes for on eBay (or anywhere really) put me off. It is a great little beat-em-up though. Sparkster really surprised me though, it must be one of the best looking SNES games I've ever seen. No idea if it is extra hardware or just Konami stretching their SNES skills to the limit, but wow, it looks good. Flippen hard though.

^ On The Ball is just a re-named port of Cameltry. At least the new name makes more sense.
