But I Think Donkey Kong Is The Best Game Ever

/ 6 years ago

Not going to lie. I love Donkey Kong. It may be repetitive, it may be simplistic but something about jumping those barrels has me playing for hours. Give me vintage Donkey Kong anyday! Love it. Shout outs to my buddy, Billy. He knows what is up.

Fell On Black Days-Super Nintendo (SNES) System + Rare Games

/ 7 years ago

I don’t even know where to begin with kbtone251 listing. So I will let you read for yourselves.

This is my original Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It is in mint condition, comes in original box with all instructions, retail price sticker on box, and I even have original receipt of purchase ( date: 10/11/1991). Most of the games I have are really rare, the game titles are listed below. Of course the price I am asking for this is not how much the system and games are worth, but to me it’s very valuable and worth more than just money. I’ve had the system and collected these games since I was a kid, and it’s hard to let go of it. I remember opening up the system for my birthday and playing the system all day and all night, and each day saving up my allowances to buy each of these games. Sure I could always find another system and the same games someday, but it’s something about this that it was my original.

I hate to tell a sad story because I am one that usually never expects anything or asks anyone for anything. But truth is I am desperately in need of this money. I am overwhelmed with debt and barely making ends meet. I am also urgently in need of massive dental care and I am not able to afford the financing for it. Truly I really do feel embarrassed and ashamed to list such an ad, but I am not sure where else to turn. I just thought I should find the MOST valuable thing to me that I have, and hopefully some wealthy person or organization would be so kind and find it in their heart to purchase this system and games from me for my asking price. I would really appreciate it more than you’ll know.

And please do not contact me to criticize me and tell me I am out of my mind. Due to my situation, I am not far from it. Please understand. Thanks.

Here’s what you get:

Super Nintendo (SNES) Sytem with box and instruction manuals + original receipt.

Mouse & Mouse Pad for Mario Paint

Official Nintendo SNES Game Cartridge holder

Games:

1. Mega Man X

2. Mega Man X 3

3. Super Mario World

4. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island

5. Super Mario Kart

6. Super Mario All Stars (4 in 1 game)

7. Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World (5 in 1 game)

8. Mario Paint

9. Donkey Kong Country 1

10. Donkey Kong Country 2

11. Donkey Kong Country 3

12. Contra III: Alien Wars

13. Turtles IV: Turtles in Time

14. Secret of Mana

15. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

16. Aladdin

17. Killer Instinct

18. Top Gear 2 “

So if anyone with a heart like Brad Pitt reads this please buy this SNES.

5 Things you don’t know about Nintendo!

/ 8 years ago

Ok, I decided to compile a list of 5 Nintendo tidbits that a lot of people are not aware of. This is not meant to be the 5 BEST tidbits or anything, just a list of 5 oddball bits of info that I find quite interesting and I hope you do as well!

On with the list!!!

#5 – The Super Mario Bros. 2 You know and love is not Super Mario Bros 2.

Super Mario Bros. 2
Posted by: russelstoll

You see that above?  Super Mario Brothers 2, right?  Well, not exactly.  In America this is known as Super Mario Brothers 2 but in actuality it is this game…

Doki Doki Panic
Posted by: nmr509

See some familiar looking “baddies” above but not the “heroes” you know and love? That is because this is Doki Doki Panic! Nintendo needed to put out SMB2 due to it’s HUGE popularity. They made a SMB2 that was very similar to SMB1 but was deemed “Too difficult” for us dumb Americans. So, they took Doki Doki Panic, a game unknown to us Americans, and swapped out the title screen for SMB2 title screens and the characters for Mario characters and sold it in the states as Super Mario Bros. 2!

Super Mario Bros. 2 (JP)
Posted by: from_my_game_collection_to_yours

Shown above is the REAL Super Mario Bros. 2. This was later released on the Mario All-Stars collection under the name of Super Mario Bros. Lost Levels.

#4 – Nintendo had some pornographic games released for it.

Peek-A-Boo Poker
Posted by: jeffw0824

Much like the Tengen games but a lot less available, Panesian made some unlicensed games but instead of porting over popular games from other systems, they decided to make pornographic video games! Panesian made the above posted Pee-A-Boo Poker as well as 2 other adult titles called Hot Slots, and Bubble Bath Babes. I had actually seen these back in the day in the “Cult” section of this little independently owned video store but was not old enough to rent them. I wish I would have rented and kept them back in the day since they are now likely to get you over $1,000 each. Another little “fun fact” about Panesian is they are now a computer monitor manufacture that goes under the name “MAG”, and I used to have one of those monitors.

#3 – Nintendo made a breakfast cereal back in the late 80’s.

Nintendo Cereal (Magnet)
Posted by: traci*s

“NIN-TEN-D0, it’s a cereal, WOW!” is the slogan I can remember from back when this came out. I thought this cereal was sooo badass since A) It was a NES cereal and B) It came in 2 different varieties in the same box! I would usually chow down on the Mario half, while my brother was more of a Link fan.

Nintendo Cereal (Magazine Ad)
Posted by: kenyatabks

Here is a sweet magazine add for the cereal with such awesome quotes as “This tastes SUPER!” and even better than that… “We rescued breakfast!”.

#2 – Nintendo has been in business since 1889.

Nintendo Playing Cards
Posted by: mitsuru7306

So, if you didn’t guess my “teaser clue” from yesterday that it was Nintendo, it wouldn’t surprise me since not many people know that Nintendo started as a playing card manufacturing company back in 1889 making playing cards called Hanafuda cards used for numerous types of games.

Nintendo and Disney licensed products? Yeah, it happened, and this is VINTAGE 1960’s stuff, pre-Mario indeed!

N&B Block Clock Kit
Posted by: bg47726

Nintendo also tried getting into the Lego market in the 60’s with their own type of linking children’s blocks they called N&B Blocks.

Super Mario Land 2 – 6 Golden Coins
Posted by: blackbear825

An homage to these blocks can be seen in the Game Boy game Super Mario Land 2 – 6 Golden Coins

Color TV Game 15
Posted by: japaneseitemsrus

Nintendo Entertainment System (or Famicom) was Nintendo’s first home video game console? Not exactly, seen above is the Color TV Game 15, one of the video game units that Nintendo made back in 1977. The units played a couple different versions / modes of the same game, much like all the PONG units of the 70’s.

#1 – Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, and the Wii was originally hired by Nintendo as a Staff Artist back in 1977.

Innovators – Shigeru Miyamoto Hardcover Book
Posted by: shoppingspreellc

Man, is hind site 20/20! I am sure when Nintendo hired on Mr. Miyamoto as a Staff Artist they were not expecting to have one of the most important people in video game history in their ranks! Now he has books written about him! Talk about climbing the corporate ladder. Without him, they may have been nothing more than just another electronics company trying to find their niche all these years.

Donkey Kong – Game & Watch
Posted by: garfn7

Here is a nice Donkey Kong Game & Watch signed by Mr. Miyamoto. The man does not make too many public singing appearances so this is a pretty cool item!

Well, that is it for this EPIC sized Nintendo post! Hope you learned something about the biggest (and oldest) gaming company!
