I started playing Star Tropics on the NES Classic. It's interesting that is a combination of LOZ game play and dungeons with with a large open world map.

$75? You got a hell of a deal. The ones with all the games already installed are going for more than twice that on eBay now. My guess is that the NES Classic craze drove up the market.

I got it on Craigslist. The guy was super nice and installed everything I asked for. It's a raspberry pi zero which also makes it a little cheaper but everything plays smoothly so I'm not complaining.

Oh man I just got back from a friend's house and he was playing the original Japanese Contra. Damn thing had an intro, cut scenes, and a few other nice nuances that I'd never seen before. Stage 5 had actual snowfall that affected game play more than the US version.

Just a reminder of how Americans are viewed by the Japanese from a gaming standpoint.

Watching "The Completionist" suck at Super Punch Out because he won't slow down and counterpunch is making me more upset than it should.  It's like when James Rolfe sucks at games on James and Mike Monday, only to beat shitty/hard games for the Nerd vids. AHHHHHHHHHH!

Super Punch-Out is a game I can pop in every few years and get through pretty easy. I won't set any records, but I can get through without losing a fight. Always loved it.

I kinda fell out of AVGN when he did an unwatchable Christmas episode a couple years back. Should probably dip my toe back in
