I was playing my Nintendo DS, and the Pokémon game cartridge I was using wouldn't load. I thought that was strange, the pin on the game looked clean, and my Nintendo DS played every other game cartridge I inserted. Furthermore, I tried the Pokémon game on a different DS, the game started up, but would then freeze.
Putting together a list of “the best PS2 RPGs” is both easy and difficult. It’s easy in the sense that there’s no dearth of role-playing games—the system has more RPG titles than some short-lived consoles, like the TurboGrafx-16, has of any kind at all. The difficult part involves separating the wheat from the chaff.
To the uninitiated, collecting rare Atari 2600 games might seem like a niche hobby. But nostalgia is a powerful thing, and this power translates to big dollars. Take the rare video-game market, for example.
To paraphrase 19th Century British playwright Oscar Wilde, the Super NES Super Scope was awesome. Even if he never said that, he should have. Because it was.
You are going to need a few tools to get this going, A Small Philips Screw driver, A regular size Phillips screwdriver and a Flat Head Screw Driver.
I’m a pretty big Final Fantasy fan. I came into the series with VII and have played everything since besides the MMOs and the two sequels to the lackluster XIII. I’ve had conversations with friends about what the Final Fantasy musical RPG that never was would have looked like (I would totally play that—good or bad, it would be hilarious).
Scour the furthest reaches of cyberspace, and you’ll find blog posts covering just about every video game accessory and piece of hardware there ever was. But one piece of console lore that remains woefully underreported is the NES Famicom Adapter.
When you start thinking about a place to sell n64 video games online, there are a few key things you need to keep in mind. The first is true when selling any type of collectible, from comic books to baseball cards and everything in between.
Ho ho ho!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It’s that time of the year again, folks. Unwrapping gifts, decorating homes, and enjoying sumptuous meals with your family and loved ones.
When I first got my Game Boy Advance in 2010, Golden Sun (2001) was one of my first games. My younger brother told me it was a GBA-exclusive RPG that I would really enjoy.
I’m not the kind of player who longs for “the good old days” when games seemed to hate you and want you to die. My attempt to replay Paperboy and recapture the glory of my NES days was short-lived as I realized how needlessly, unrewardingly cruel that game is—I just didn’t know any better as a kid.
It can happen to even the most scrupulous retro-game collector. You’ve got a pristine Super Nintendo displayed alongside other throwback consoles, and yet somehow it turns yellow over time.
Buying a new gaming device is always exciting; until you get it home and find out that you don’t have everything you need to actually play it. So before you purchase that new PlayStation Vita, know your facts and avoid any unpleasant surprises.
Turtles II: The Arcade Game Intro:
The turtle’s franchise took an enormous turn for the better with TMNT II: The Arcade Game. Don’t get me wrong, the first turtle’s game on the NES was good, but very hard. With the turtle’s in the arcade already, a port to the NES was all this series needed.
In the last 15 years, Microsoft’s Xbox has risen to become, along with Sony’s PlayStation, one of the twin pillars of home console gaming. And while stalwart companies like Nintendo have enjoyed success as well, Xbox and PlayStation are Coke and Pepsi.
There are a few video-game consoles out there, such as the Sega Saturn and the NEC TurboGrafx-16 that have been lost to the slow march of time. But avid retro gamers enjoy collecting these machines because they offer throw-back thrills and underrated gameplay.
The Sega Dreamcast considered by many to be one of the most innovative consoles of its genre. It’s funny to think that little white box could provide us a splendid home arcade feel. Perhaps even more interesting is the fact this may have been the first Xbox Console.
