    Hey guys!

    Montrealer here. Real name Julien and I'm a 35 yr old gamer/hoarder dad.

    I found the website on the 5-6th page of a google search I did looking for 3DO games.

    My current whims are 3DO longbox titles, 3DS and Wii games.

    Looking forward to discussing games and trading with people here.

    So very few of us. Did you see it in the Cracked dot com top 20 worst NES games? Ridiculous! I always liked this game and find it's cruelly underrated.

    That's absurd! I love it so much I scored a Bomb Jack PCB. The NES game is amazing. I need to spend more time with Bomb Jack Twin.

    Sorry if this is derailing the thread.

    I never played the original in the arcade. My understanding is that it got the same treatment as Mario Bros. when they made it into a NES game.

    Mario Bros. = Single screen arcade game ; Super Mario Bros. = (legendary) Scrolling platformer
    Bomb Jack = Single screen arcade game ; Mighty Bomb Jack = (super fun!) Scrolling (both vertical and horizontal) platformer

    How correct is my info?

    That's correct. In the arcade game, you had to collect all of the on-screen bombs before they explode. Aside from downloads, it was available on original Xbox on the Tecmo Classic Arcade disc, and I believe there was a black and white Game Boy port.

    Default Hello from Brazil

    Hello averybody, I'm Leonardo from Brazil and I annoy people from differents forums asking them for scans/ HQ pictures of console boxes to make replicas for myself to store my systems since I can't find any to sell in a fair price. I'm 41, father of two girls (one is 2,7 years and the other is due May 7) and my favorite game is Wonder Boy 3 for the SEGA master system and Zelda games. I'm currently in a buying classic games spree and my targets are ColecoVision and Odyssey 2, with Intellivision in a close third place. Thanks.

    Default Hello!

    Hello everybody! My name is Adam and I've just become a member of this community. I am a huge fan of retro games and that's why I've decided to join this forum. Memories are still alive in me and I would love to play some old games from my past. Greetings!
    To want to, is to be able to.

    Default Hey Howdy Hey

    Greetings, all!

    Although actually approved a few weeks back, its better to be late than never.

    I am TinStarFox, AKA Christopher!

    Born in that odd post-crash/pre-NES period of 1984, gaming has been a part of my life since the start!

    My hometown is Elmira, NY...famous for being the place where Mark Twain summered/wrote many of his classic works.

    I discovered Digital Press while looking for an active/respected message board outlet for my SNES/NES/Wii appreciations!


    My username originated half a decade ago{in the now-closed SNES Central Forums}, plus I was a part of G4's message boards, too{both directly proceeding/after the TechTV merger..can't recall what my name was there}.

    At one point in time, I owned many systems{Odyssey2, various VFD/LCD-based handhelds, Atari 2600, ColecoVision, Atari 5200, Sega Master System, Game Boy{regular/pocket}, Sega Nomad, orig. PlayStation, N64, Sega Saturn, PS2, GameCube}: but only 4 have connected with me enough to stay the course/build libraries from.

    They're the NES, the SNES, the Genesis{including 32X and Sega CD}, and the Wii!

    I'm also a member of various retro gaming-related forums-
    Sega-16{Insector_X_Perts}
    VAPS/KLOV{BurgerTimePilot}
    &
    Retro Pizza Zone{Don'tSmokeCrayolas}

    I've relocated some of the Sega-16 crew, plus I welcome reconnecting with those familiar faces from VAPS/RPZ, too!

    In "real life", I split time between being a History Major{U.S./U.K./Asia mostly} and Gender Studies Minor, plus I run a small eBay business[focused upon items from the 80s-today].

    I look forward to chatting with you all, and thanks for letting me become a part of this deep community!

    Hi there everyone. I'm a retro game collector, got into it about 3 years ago so I'm not an OG. Do enjoy it thought and recently got a Sega Saturn, been playing that a bit.

    I also enjoy modding console in various ways. Mostly upgraded A/V outputs, but pride myself in keeping the consoles as original as possible as far as not having to cut the case. Recently Modded an ARP 4M to have an extra 256k of flash and can switch between Pseudo Saturn Kai and Action Reply for saves on it.

    Anyway guess I'm rambling at this point. Also wanted to know what does a member need to have to be able to sell on the sellers market here?

    Thank you for your time, peace!

    Hi Everyone!

    I'm an amateur video game collector, with a tiny collection mostly focused on 8/16 bits consoles. My main focus is the Super Nintendo (PAL), I've got about a hundred cartridges. As I've started collecting quite late (about 5 years ago), I mainly have loose cartridges, as they are more affordable and take less space on my gaming shelf .

    I also have several Gameboy models (DMG, pocket, color, advance, advance SP and micro), and about 50-60 games, as I love the Nintendo handelds (well, the retro one).

    But more than collecting, I'm actually an amateur game designer / developer. After years of hesitations and failed attempts, this summer I finally made the big leap and I've started to create my first homebrew game, for the Gameboy. The game was released about a month ago, I'll make a post about it for those who are interested.

    Although not easy, I really enjoyed the experience, so next I'll either make another GB game, or try to make a game for the Super Nintendo .

    I'm Gus Mota, aka Teacher Gus, 32.

    I live in São Paulo, Brazil, and found the forums while navigating the web searching for info on Atari 2600 programmers. I play pretty much anything retro, but what touches my heart the most is the Atari 2600 and the NES. Even so, I don't collect them, as collecting is an expensive hobby here in Brazil. I am a teacher of English as a second language, so I don't have that much money to begin with!

    I have a modest Youtube channel that has some retro stuff (like interviews!) on it, too, and I host it with my wife. Its name is Baixa Definição, which translates to Low Definition, reflecting the retrogames and our own way of dealing with life and defining ourselves.

  21. The Following 2 Users Say Thank You to TeacherGus For This Useful Post:
