/ 8 years ago

Golgo 13 is the motherfucking man. If you have never seen the anime or played the game you are missing out. I remember getting Top Secret Episode for NES. Man that shit was on point, Golgo fucks dudes up. susi-sumo-jpn is selling a Famicom Golgo 13 game. I’ve never seen this or played this game before. But I bet it kicks ass.

5 Things you don’t know about Nintendo!

/ 9 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

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)

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.

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 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.

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!

Time for a PARTY!!! 3rd PARTY!!!

/ 9 years ago

Some people don’t know these exist so I thought I would post em’ up. What i am posting up are 3rd part NES, SNES, and Genesis systems. Pretty odd that these exist but the price and convenience of some of them is pretty damn good.

crazydealguy has a 3rd party NES system posted up as well as some other 3rd party systems / supplies.. This unit plays NES and Famicom games just like an old school Nintendo. Comes with some UGLY controllers but one good thing is that they have the same controller ports as a regular NES controller so you could just grab an old school controller.

Also from crazydealguy  is this NES and Genesis combo. Quite a weird combo if you ask me! You figure they would make a NES and SNES combo instead of a NES Genesis combo…

Ahh, ok! If you are looking for a NES and SNES combo system then luckygamers has what you are looking for! Plays Nintendo, Super Nintendo, Famicom, and Super Famicom games.  They don’t show the controllers but by the look of the diagram on the box it looks like they are SNES controller clones. But what if I want all 3 systems in one?

YES! In fact, yes-avenue has what you are looking for! A system that plays NES, SNES, Genesis, Famicom, Super Famicom, and Mega Drive games! I enjoy a good original old school console being hooked up but I can TOTALLY see why someone might want this so they only need one unit hooked up to take the place of 3 (or 6 if you are a JP game player). Has wireless controllers but also has ports for NES, SNES, and Genesis controllers.
