NEW GAMES 9/13/12
I’m back on the collecting wagon! Had some cool finds at a garage sale and a local shop today. Here’s the rundown:
Super Empire Strikes Back (SNES) - The second in a trilogy of really great 16-bit adaptations of the original trilogy. These were released twice - first by JVC, and later by THQ. This copy is the latter. It doesn’t match my JVC Super Star Wars, but that’s no big deal.
Quattro Adventure (NES) - One of a small series of unlicensed NES games. These aren’t too rare but I never got around to getting this one.
Killer Instinct (GB) - Notoriously terrible port of a legendary fighting game. I couldn’t resist getting this.
Prince of Persia (NES) - I don’t know much about this version, but I know it’s a bit hard to find. I’m curious to see how it translates to this platform.
Mario Bros. (NES) - How did I never get around to getting this one? A total classic.
Road Runner (NES) - Another unlicensed game, and an arcade port. I’ve heard good things about this but don’t know much else about it.
Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle (Genesis) - I’ve played a game from this series on Master System, and I’ve heard this called the best in the series. While Sega was certainly wise to change mascots from Alex Kidd to Sonic, these games are not without their charm. It’s a solid franchise.
TOTALS - I’m up to 1,224 total games, including 462 NES games. I’m excited to be back in a collecting mood again, and hope to keep inching my way towards 500 NES titles. I expect it may take a while, but I’m glad to have this goal within my sights.
