So this is Mr. Gimmick. Nice music for an NES title.

Sunsoft is famous for putting good quality music in NES games and in Mr Gimmick it's due to an extra sound chip. You should hear the music from another Sunsoft game called Ufouria smile.gif

Just wanted to throw this out there since what I discovered got me a tad excited... biggrin.gif


Back in 2013 I bought a copy of the rare NES game Mr Gimmick. The game was only released in Japan and Scandinavia and also very late in the 8-bit era and for these reasons not many copies are out there. Well, at least not compared to say Mega Man or other games.
Anyway, I bought Mr Gimmick for 2500 SEK and when I just now looked at the auction site there were a few more up for sale, for 5000 SEK each!!! ohmy.gif ohmy.gif

That's not to say they are easy to sell or even that they will be sold for that price, but to see my purchase double in value like that really got me hot and bothered bigsmile.gif


Edit: I just looked at another game, Action 52. Same story there! Bought it for 2500 SEK and the two ones up for sale now; 4500 and 3900 SEK, respectively!

NEW NES GAME PURCHASE



Of course, "new" is to be taken with a grain of salt. It's new to my collection anyway and the game in question is Metroid. Never played it much back in the day and I don't reckon I will now. It's not really appealing to me but it's still an iconic game and hey ho, maybe it will grow on me a bit*?

Came complete with the small box and the manual that refers to Samus as "he" but as the perceptive child I was back then I instantly suspected it was a girl in that suit because of how the character was running; reminded me of an eleven-year-old girl bigsmile.gif

So where do you buy your NES games? Khajiit can’t imagine those are easy to find these days.

This morning I decided to boot up my old NES again and play some Mega Man and Battle of Olympus, two games I played as a kid but never owned. I just played two stages of Mega Man and a bit of the other one.

Although I never got far in either games I do enjoy the music in them and especially Battle of Olympus. I'll list a few here and frankly, they are so much more memorable than basically any modern, overproduced song by whoever world famous singer or group. These simple 8-bit tunes kick them around the playground fifteen times I tells ya.


Title theme
Arcadia Green Fields
Caves of Argolis
Peloponnesus Forest

Today I got a new (heh) game for my NES; Top Gun. I made a mistake when buying it though; I thought I was buying Top Gun II: The second mission, the sequel to the game I got. My bad. I'll get the other one later.

Worked fine but I crashed in the ocean when trying to land on the aircraft carrier tongue.gif

I like Top Gun on the NES. Just pay attention to ALT and Speed indicators on the hud during the landing sequence and you should almost always be able to land on the carrier.

Top Gun on the NES.

I've heard of this game before; I think someone on this site posted a screenshot of it years ago!

My Dad used to have "Flight Simulator," and I couldn't land on the Aircraft Carriers for anything! A lot of Tail-Hookers died that day, lol.
