Moist from your breath can make the contacts corrode. You need to pull out the mighty qtip and a cleaning agent (not Smith) like Windex or something. This guy will show you how itīs done - take it away, mr Koralik! cool.gif


(If you donīt want to see when he takes apart and cleans the system skip to 11:25)

Didn't he say that the "Lost Files" was a watered down easier version of it? I want the original one, not the watered down version, lol.

Played some tonight.

Started out with the all-time classic Super Mario Brothers, I got up to level 5-1 before I messed up too much to be bothered to continue. So in went Probotector, otherwise known as Contra, and with the help of the 30 lives code I beat it. I guess I could beat it without the code if I actually tried hard enough, but meh. I just wanna see the game and beat it. It btw really does have solid gameplay smile.gif

More from the Gaming Historian, this time about the Game Boy smile.gif

I had about six games in total when I was a kid and Iīve beaten them all. I spent so much time playing that I got really good at them, more so than I ever got on the NES actually. Still have all the games but unfortunately I canīt find the boxes and manuals sad.gif

I'm not ignoring this, will check it out when I have some time to watch it. Today was Thanksgiving, and tomorrow I've got an appointment for most of the morning; and really not sure what I'll have time for after that, depends on how things go.

Super Mario and Duck Hunt? tongue.gif


I donīt know many less known gems so I donīt think I can help you much. Though I know Renee would recommend Faxanadu, an early RPG kind of game where I think you level up and such things. Personally I can recommend River City Ransom otherwise known as Street Gangs, if you want to kick and punch thugs while being one yourself tongue.gif It actually has an element of RPG too where depending on what food you eat you can level up different skills. You can also learn new moves from books.

Look em up on youtube if you want to see how they are smile.gif

I have a free weekend (finally) - so finally had time to sit down and watch this. I love his histories of the different games! He didn't go as in depth in this one as he did on the NES, but maybe there wasn't as much to say, lol.

I got my son two gameboys (so his friends could play with him if they didn't have one) and every single attachment and extra available for them. He had a Gameboy pack (like a briefcase) that held all the gear in it for when he visited friend's houses, lol.

He got the Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance; the Gameboy GameCube Adapter so he could play his gameboy games on the Television; etc.

I think for the longest time that was his favorite of all time; but when I got him the XBox 360 it eventually got where he didn't want to play it anymore, so he sold everything to the GameStop in order to buy 360 games.

So nice of you to get him all that! Sad to learn he sold it all eventually, though. If he hasnīt regretted it yet I suspect there might come a time when he will... kvleft.gif


Never had any accessories for the Gameboy myself. I had the box it came in plus the games and that was it, but I was happy. Still remember when I got Kirbyīs Pinball Land on a Christmas morning (we always got one gift early), I played the heck out of it! happy.gif

I was afraid he would regret it too; but he sold them all in 2006 or so; and this is almost 2016 - so far he hasn't moaned about it, lol. I guess if he ever does, you can always still find them for sale at the GameStop, though maybe not in the same great condition his were in when he sold them.

I regretted selling my NES and Sega Genesis systems, and moaned about it a LOT. One of my son's friends gave me his old broken NES system and Mario games for XMas right before Oblivion came out. You had to fix the NES before playing every time you played it, but then it would work. I played it to death until my son got me playing Oblivion, lol.

I still miss the Sega every now and then, but I did get some of the games on my PC to play (Echo the Dolphin; Kid Chameleon; etc). It just isn't the same, somehow.

Sounds strange. What did you have to do in order to make it work before every session?



Tonight I played some Pro Wrestling (as Star Man) and then Wild Gunman that utilizes the Zapper smile.gif


When I got beyond lvl 99 on Gunman it just started over at lvl 1 again, and the score isnīt properly displayed as it canīt show 1.000.000 and over. But I did get over 2 million points. Average time on bandit one was 0.25 seconds and on bandit two 0.37 seconds. Lost two lives though because I was goofing around with different shooting styles tongue.gif


I love my NES happy.gif

Last night I finally beat Kung Fu! biggrin.gif

Not a hard game really and itīs very short, but you take a lot of damage when hit, especially when fighting the bosses but I beat the end guy surprisingly easy. No deaths along the way either so it was a pretty nice run smile.gif

I also played the black box wrestling game where I won and defended the title. No real end to it, you just keep defending the title. And I also beat Probotector (Contra) again. Love the music on stage 5 and 6 smile.gif
