I've fallen in love with the Castlevania series. It's one helluva game series. Working my way through the first one now. Not quite as mind-wrenchingly difficult as I've been led to believe, but it's no cake walk. Can't wait to work my way through the other two titles on the 3DS e-shop.

A game for gaming's sake, almost. I love it. The music and story may have been what sold me in the end.



I"m saving up to buy flash carts for the NES, SNES, and Genesis/Mega Drive. The carts that I've been looking at range in price at about 100 dollars, rounded. There are other, more expensive options, which range from 150 to 200 bucks, but I'm not that willing to shell out that much money.

I'm looking into getting a Super Everdrive, an EverDrive N8, and an Everdrive-MD. If i choose to get a specially made cart, it'll cost me about 100 dollars each. If I choose to get just the boards, and re-purpose a standard cart, it'll only cost me about 80 bucks for the MD and Super Everdrive. The everdrive n8 still will cost about 100 bucks.

I plan on buying from this online store because everywhere else I look, they're sold out- or don't ship to the US.


All I'm gonna use them for is playing games. Seeing as how the vast majority of these games are almost 20 years old (if not older), I doubt Nintendo or Sega would care- or whoever. We're looking at about a good 15 to 30 bucks a game for each system, not counting the 'treasures' (such as Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy- which go for BUTTLOADS more), it's worth it in the long run- especially when you consider the fact that the entire System Library (and then some, sometimes) can be stuck on an SD card, which can then be put into these Flash Carts. Voila- instant collection, with the feel of original hardware, without quite so much cost.

Emulators are free, yes, but they lack the feel of actual hardware. Touchscreens are a poor substitute for controllers (or even keyboards)- and they fare even worse when pitted against a fast-paced game.

Vampire Killers, Bloody Tears, and whatnot.

Xbox1 confirmed for failure.

...while the PS4 and Wii U rocket ahead.

In all seriousness, I'm going to buy a Wii U- if not for anything else, for Super Smash Bros, and the virtual console.

I'm very seriously considering getting a PS4 for the same thing; a virtual console.

The day Xbox360 support ends I will lose the 2% faith I have in Microsoft (at least for that portion about Microsoft).

Happy, belated, birthday!

And the beginning of double decades. Oh geeze, I'm only a few months off from that as well...

You should watch Dragonball Z Abridged. With headphones and away from children.

It's gotta be better than DBZ: Kai. That stuff is weak. It must be made of something like paper mâché- or RADITZ.
