castlevania was difficult for sure... there's a brick wall i run into late game that I just can't get past, even taking advantage of the rewind function on the anniversary collection i haven't been able to get past it. Super frustrating!

I absolutely hated that level when that game was new, matter of fact I never revisited the game until the Cowabunga Collection just because of said level.

This time around it didn't seem so hard. I "cheated" and looked at a map because always ran out of time back tracking. As a kid, getting killed a billion times trying to sketch out a map was part of it. Unless Nintendo Power had a map you were completely blind. If there was one back then, I must have missed that issue or it was on the back of one of the posters hanging in my room.

I like a lot of the pong derivatives and can stand games like centipede and space invaders but the atari console versions are far inferior. I keep trying to love Atari but I just can't. I do like the game art, and the collectability as well as accessibility of the pre jag stuff but every single time i've built up an atari collection i've sold it off. With that said, I still purchased the switch version of this and it should be here tonight. Still trying I guess.

Now that I think about it I can't recall seeing one in a store. I see xbox s a lot, but the other current gen systems are still mia

I preordered a looong time ago, prolly overspent by 10 bucks

yeah i beat it! Back in the day I had to beat it with the game genie to figure out where everything was. trick is don't lose a turtle and find the buildings and sewers with a pizza close by; go in, heal up, get out, repeat.

Where I always struggle is in the technodrome. I always get decimated. using Donnie or Leo on the clearable parts and ralph or mikey as the sacrificial lambs in that last part part before shredder is the only way i can make it through. As long as Donnie is alive; Shredder doesn't get a hit in.

genesis mini 2 just came in the mail, this may get pushed back in the queue - game backlog is a FILO stack

Been really enjoying this collection. I've ran through the first nes game and the first arcade game. Really good at satisfying that nostalgia itch

Call me crazy, but I don't see Goldeneye aging well.

Everybody knows luke, leia, and obi wan are going to be ok in the end so how much tension can you possibly generate? I think this is why a lot of the disney people are saying they're giving up revisiting old characters...

I think there's a formula (not sure if Disney has found it yet) where you can tell an exciting story without the hero's death being part of the action. Obi Wan did ok, but there were times where not knowing if some of the characters made it to tomorrow would have made the scene so much better.

I think if they just dumped the entirety of the series out at once (a la netflix) the writers wouldn't have to fit things into neat little 40 minute boxes and have some of the episodes rely on situations where knowing the future of the character takes away from the overall action. OR stick with episode / week but write a story that doesn't utilize the peril of the protagonist as the main focus.

People love picking these stories apart and I get it, wherever most people started with Star Wars was the pinnacle for them and everything outside of their beloved trilogy / entry point just can't live up. Personally, I consume it all and love it all. Some are far superior to others. For me, its nice to see something outside the formula of David vs Goliath, and BIG World Ending base, ship, fleet, vs small band of hopefuls and the fleeting task of taking it down. But really, i love it all, outside of those stupid droids cartoons, ewok movies, and the christmas special so bad you have to really search it out.

Yeah, marketing must be an after thought. Luna isn't very much hyped and the IGN article was supposedly the first I've heard of it but I think it's possible I have used this service and just completely forgot about it. When I downloaded the client, I had 30-40 games in my library already. Neat surprise! Speaks volumes over how sticky the service is(n't)!

I've had prime for a long time and had no clue they gave away games. They give games away sort of like Epic does, on a rotating basis. It's library fodder. I picked up my 3rd copy of Escape from Monkey Island and a few others I probably wont download BUT check the link, Prime Day this year has some nice free games and there's a bunch of free indie crap leading up to prime day. Mass Effect is an all time favorite and some of bioware's best. Scoring the whole collection for free is worth the prime with games download.

@BLUEVOODU just the cover art, and a sticker that says walmart exclusive

@retro junkie the desire for the steelbook has come and gone... If I see it in a thrift store or yard sale I'd pick it up

Rotten Tomatoes has it ranked as the worst but it's at least as good as Thor 2, The Incredible Hulk (as played by Edward Norton), Iron Man 2, or Age of Ultron... also the bottom tiered Marvel moves!

It's frozen pizza, off brand vanilla icecream, elevator small talk, kenny g; there's no redeeming qualities but nothing I couldn't stand.

I probably would rewatch all of the above (maybe not thor) before i'd watch the Eternals again.

I'm with @CreepinDeth, after the epic heel turn in Episode 3 Revenge of the Sith we really didn't get to see Vader be Vader... I dig it and I hope it continues

one year later, cheapest one on ebay is 105... guess i'll keep mine sealed

All the sony CRTs I had lasted longer than any pet. I never managed to get a wega, i had the older trinitrons. I do miss light gun games and just screwing a bunch of rf switches together!

I picked up an extra one so I could have a sealed one.

I'm with Creepin on this one, it doesn't look like the value will spike any time soon. I'm still keeping one untouched.

So far i've not played the open one, i need to remedy that.

I had no idea what a big game this was to SNK and NGPC fans. After watching some game play, I almost completely skipped over this title. I happen to bring it up to a Neo fan and I might as well have asked if he'd ever heard of Mario. After that reaction, I've changed my mind and will be trying this out.

Anyone else heard of this game, I can't be the only person with my head in the sand!

Here's hoping its good

Once upon a time Sony made nice tvs that held up... My CRTs are all dead and gone. I don't miss the hernia or real estate they took up, it just would be nice to play some light gun games.

I've already ordered it. I loved The first three, never played the days of ruin but the first three were fantastic. Batallion wars was awesome too. Seems like this one will take a while, PR and war in Ukraine seem to be holding it back

With the rumors Shredders Revenge is releasing June 16th wouldn't it seem more likely this game gets released much later
