So here’s the second batch of games I bought in Japan, a bunch of Famicom Disk games and also some more Famicom games:
Some that I’m really happy with are Star Wars, Kamen no Ninja Hanamaru, Eggerland, Castlevania II, Alien Syndrom and Hatris (which was only 100Yen =about 1.25 USD, in mint condition!!)
This weekend I tried all the games I purchased in Japan out briefly (in total 64 games and one system), and all of them worked, except for one Famicom Disk game (Breeder) which I actually think I broke myself o_O Not really sure what happened there..
Also when I got home I had a package waiting for me, with 4 reproductions I had ordered earlier ^_^
The games are reproductions of Cocoron, Recca and two Castlevania games which are fan-made in 8-bit ^_^ Can’t wait to try them all out!
I’m sorry for the shortness of this post, but I’ve been really busy since I got home, I will try to make a longer post tomorrow ^^
64 new games to add to the collection! That is fantastic. You must be very excited. Time to update those spread sheets! :P
I’m starting to realize you’re a solid Castlevania fan! Why not, they are excellent games. I really enjoyed the Nintendo DS versions. The NES classic is great but very hard.
Those reproductions look really good. You’ll have to let us know what you think of the fan made games! That really rocks. I love hearing about modern games for retro systems.
I would also love to see an updated picture of your collection once you’ve got all these new additions added to it.
Spreadsheets already updated ^_^ It took me a day, some were hard to figure out the name of, but I eventually figured them all out :D
Indeed I am, I looove Castlevania ^_^ I have a whole shelf with just my Castlevania games. I really love the first 8bit ones, but I also have big affection towards the GBA ones, especially Aria of Sorrow and Circle of the Moon (amazing games!!)
Haha, I will see when I can take more pics of the room, right now it’s a mess cause I can’t fit anymore in there!!! >_<
I am losing my mind trying to get some of my disks to work. Out of 12 disks, 5 of them are fried or as they say “de-magnetized”. You know anything about those? Or if I can revive them
Hi! If you are talking about NES cartridges I have never heard that they can be de-magnetized.. however, they are most likely dirty! ;D I have a post here about how to clean your games thoroughly: https://retro-video-gaming.com/2012/02/09/cleaning-your-nes-cartridges-no-more-glitchy-gaming/
Another tip that is a bit easier if you don’t want to open them up, is that you can use a Q-tip and dip it in some isopropyl alcohol then just rub the Q-tip against the contacts of the cartridge. Repeat process until the Q-tips aren’t dirty anymore. ^_^
