Spirit tracks is very similar in locational setting to majoras mask, I have no issue with sailing or riding a train, but those flutes on spirit tracks irritate me. I just cant play the 4th song. Wind waker was fun when you went sailing, I just bombard enemies with a cannon a lot. Also Ocarina of time is available on DS and on the gamecube special edition of Wink Waker that I have, making it much faster and more fun to control. :D fantastic game. Lots of other things in it to talk about, but so little time and too much effort to do so...

I digress, I never got Carnevil although it did sound good. I was a bit busy with resident evil at the time and oh good dog the licker... the original was maddening but was very good for such an old game we would now consider to have poor graphics.

Actually, CarnEvil never made it to home consoles(concerning the fact that you said "I never got Carnevil").

As I said, I remember seeing the arcade, but never actually playing it. That introduction with the clown statue coming to life as an unknown figure aproached it with a coin and the creepy carnival attractions from the earth was awesome, though. Also, I saw that you got to shoot zombie clowns!
By the way, any of you plays, or has played, SWTOR?

Now I'm sad because it never made it to console, though I am fairly certain I could rig it up to the Wii sensor or something and download/create it on my PC and make a home arcade of it. Anyone remember Duck Tales?

I might be thinking of something else, but if I remember correctly the Duck Tales video game was known for being an exception to how much licensed games suck.

It truly was. I still play it on occasion and my brother is a big fan of all the more retro games. We still play the first Mario games and sonic 1 on the megadrive :D

What countries was it called the Megadrive in? I always kinda thought that was odd.

On anther note, they are apparently making an HD remake of the Duck Tales game for the 3DS I think, and despite my dislike of NES games, I actually like that one a lot, its a fun game.

NES is still good, but as it is so old and a collectable basically, your going to have a hard time finding games and/or controls to really play it, along with the cables. Who remembers GoldenEye?

A quick Google says that it was called the Megadrive in Japan and the PAL regions(After another quick Google, this is apparently covers most of Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand). So that's quite a bit of the world that called it that.

If you don't want to shell out a whole bunch of dollars for an NES that might not even work, you can get a 3DS on which they often re-release NES, SNES, Game Gear etc. games on the eShop for less than $10 each. I've heard a lot about the Duck Tales game and how awesome it is (I loved the show and the movie) so I might have to look out for that. I got the original Metroid and I cannot understand how people played it, made any kind of progress, saved the passwords, remembered the map, found all the secrets and eventually beat the game. But I can tell you, whenever I found anything, it was the most rewarding experience of my gaming life.

My local retro games shop sells their consoles with that kind of stuff, I believe. When I got my PlayStation it had a controller and all the cables, and considering that they have a boxed Atari Jaguar I don't think they'd have any problem with finding the cables for something as popular as an NES |D

Manchester has a couple retro game stores, but you're better off going to car boot sales if you want decent retro games for a good price. Personally, everything I've bought from car boots work too.

To answer the CarnEvil question I've played it multiple times. To answer DuckTales I've heard about it but I've never played it. Now here's question I'm sure you guys have the answer to. Anyone remember Earthworm Jim?

You, sir(madam?), just put a Cheshire cat smile on my face. I LOVE that game! The level design? The bizarre sense of humor? The classic platformy action? What more could you ask for??(though, I played it on an emulator, so I don't think that counts :P)

So true! Most of the first RPG's I played are on the SNES: Earthbound, 7th Saga, Chrono Trigger, Breath of Fire, Tales of Phantasia.
Oh, those were the days of my childhood...

I remember staying up all night trying to beat it with a friend, we never did. But that was years ago (like, 6 or 7 years), I'd like to try again.

Hey,hey...anybody remember Snake Rattle 'n'Roll? I can't be the only one who enjoyed that game.

So, what was your first console, mine was the SNES. I had Super Mario 3, Bevis and Butthead, and actually Chrono Trigger, and me being 8 at the time, never played it, and my mum threw it out.

Technically, my first console was the Nintendo 64, though it wasn't really mine and I just borrowed it. Along with it, I had Super Mario 64, Super Smash Bros and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Unfortunately, I had to give it back a year later.

First console was most likely either an SNES or a Playstation 2. The first console I owned was an Xbox 360 Arcade (well technically it was a christmas present to me) and the first console I bought with my own money was my Playstation.

Also, on a less related note I've been experimenting into UI design and came up with this:

Yeah. I love Helvetica too much |c

I sucked at EVERY GAME EVER when I was young. No game was played correctly when I was at the controls.

And now I'm like the pro of the family in multiple games. My dad is the newbie and my brother is just a guy. :P I can even hold my own in the dreaded public lobbies of Call of Duty...

I was really bad at most games until recently, then I started to pick things up and am hated on some Wii games for stopping cheaters/glitchers from doing what the title suggests. :D I have never been more proud to cap a guy on my own team for jumping 100 feet in the air. But yeah until a few years ago I couldn't beat ANY game whatever, I can beat a good number of them now but some others (e.g.: Duck Tales) I will never be able to beat, ever.
