Do you like card games?

/ 7 years ago

I don’t… but these are not really card games per say. This is another failed item from Nintendo called the “e-Reader”!

E-Reader Game Boy Advance Lot
Posted by: nintendogamesandmoregames
Here it is! The e-Reader! Ugly little thing, isn’t it? Well, what this is (was?) is a card reader for the Game Boy that used cards with small strips of encoded data on them that would load up games or add ons for games. Very bizarre and never really took off as even the smallest games took multiple cards with multiple swipes to load up and you would have to swipe the cards every time you wanted to play the game.

Mario 3 card pack
Posted by: nintendogamesandmoregames
This right here is not a game, it is a pack of cards that were released for the e-Reader that would give you extra levels and add ons for games. I would like to check out the extra Super Mario Bros. 3 levels but I don’t see myself ever getting an e-Reader let alone paying big banks for these SMB3 cards! Maybe they have em’ on emulators…

Excite Bike complete game
Posted by: silvermermaidus
Here is a full game of Excite Bike. As you can see it takes 5 cards for 1 game (and not a very “beefy” game at that) and each card appears to have 2 swipe able edges so gotta run 10 edges through the reader, hope they read right, and then you get to play! All set on that.

A little bonus info about the e-Reader

Here is a list of all the classic NES games that were released for the e-Reader

Balloon Fight
Baseball
Clu Clu Land
Donkey Kong
Donkey Kong Jr.
Donkey Kong 3
Excitebike
Golf
Ice Climber
Pinball
Mario Bros.
Tennis
Urban Champion

Look at the set of lungs on “her”?

/ 7 years ago

Or Him? It??? Anyway, Sorry for the long break… I was gone for a bit because I am now a married man but I am back with some video game goods! Thought I would kick right back into things with a post about one of the few games I have been playing lately and that is Kirby Epic Yarn for the WII.

Kirby’s Epic Yarn for Nintendo Wii
Posted by: farm240sxboy
This game is a BLAST to play but just too easy. You cannot die in it at all which just makes it like walking thru with invincibility on. I wish they would have held back on the easy of play on this but that is my only complaint. Other than that the game is very fun to play and keeps me coming back.

Kirby’s Adventure for Nintendo Entertainment System
Posted by: online_retro_treasures
The game that started it all! Kirby is such an awesome character that it surprises me that he is not a 1st party mascot. One of the games that came out kinda near the peak end of the life of the NES and is still one of my favorite games to just pop in and play.

Super Nintendo console with Kirby Super Star
Posted by: hugapuggy123
This SNES comes with Kirby Super Star which seems like they were trying to get some of that “Mario All Star” action for the Kirby brand. It boasts 8 games which are a combo of platform and mini games. I have never checked this game out but now I NEED to!

Kirby Figures

And for fans of collect ables we have a nice little collection of 1 1/2″ tall Kirby figures. Great for the dashboard or the top of an old NES!

Your “princess” is in “another” castle…

/ 7 years ago

“Princess” Meaning Zelda and “Another” meaning Ganon’s. Yeah, you see what I did there? I am making this post about Zelda and some awesome (and not so awesome) old school Zelda action. There are TONS of items for Zelda and Link so don’t be surprised if I make another Zelda post down the road.

Of course! Gotta have the 2 titles that started it all and mustang2005gtblackhas em! The easiest to spot cartridges in anyone’s NES collection. Just look for the glowing golden cart! It was always easy to find my Zelda carts as well as my Rolling Thunder and OG Tetris cart. These ones are certified and sealed in a protective video game condom and just like a condom, it makes these less “exciting”. I want to PLAY my games, not look at the box all pristine in a case. I “get” the whole idea of MINT collecting, it’s just not for me.

I had to post this one up here for one simple reason… I had this watch! Now air_flight_museumhas posted one of these beauties up for sale! Back in the day I had my mom buy this for me. I think I got it at KB Toys which I am not even sure if that chain even exists anymore. KB seemed to get the best video game stuff and always had the more rare / odd type of items. This watch was pretty cool from what I remember of it but the “gameplay” gave about 2 minutes of enjoyment. Much like old school Tiger Electronics games. Speaking of which, I need to do a Tiger post…

Bootleg? No, ellapalooza has posted up one of the few Zelda releases that was not released for a Nintendo system. This was a release on the gaming system called CD-I which stands for “Compact Disc Interactive” and was one of the first CD based systems out there. The system didn’t last very long and if you check out this game footage from Zelda’s Adventureyou could probably figure out why. I will also be doing a more involved CD-I post in the future.

And bunnysstuff has posted up the demo disc for the above posted game. I never owned a CD-I but I did however get to play this “gem” of a demo at my local Circuit City when it first came out back in the day.

bunnysstuff  also has an auction up with ALL 3 of the Zelda games released for CD-I as well as “Hotel Mario” which was another sought after CD-I game. I would say these are probably the only 4 CD-I games that people are interested in collecting due to the use of such known characters.

Fantasy? Finally!

/ 7 years ago

Time to post up some items from what is arguably one of the biggest RPGs in the video game world. Final Fantasy! Now, I can say I have never beat a whole FF game but I can’t even begin to think of how many hours I put into FF7 for the Playstation. I would get home from school and turn it right on. Here are some cool items I found for FF! A lot of cosplay stuff is available for the series which doesn’t surprise me…

A full size replica of the Gunblade from Final Fantasy XIII. This may be a full size replica but… It doesn’t turn into the sword. But, you are in luck because…

A full size replica of the Gunblade SWORD from Final Fantasy XIII! Yeah, I guess they couldn’t figure out a way to make one that would transform. Either that, or they just wanted to sell the same item twice!

This is a rare item indeed! Only 50 were made for a Nintendo Power contest back in the day and it was for the OG Final Fantasy which makes it even more rare since it was back in the “old school” days.

Here is some wording from the listing: “This awesome collectable is a must-have for the serious collector and Final Fantasy enthusiast. Only 50 Final Fantasy crystal orbs were made and distributed worldwide (Nintendo Power said the mold was broken after making the orbs). It is made of solid lead crystal. The crystal orb is etched with the legend ‘Final Fantasy’; a shield with a crossed axe and sword are etched above. This can be viewed when looking through the crystal orb. The orb has been signed by the artist, Kusak.”

Check out the rest of the pictures of the orb HERE.

Final Fantasy XII Judge Master Gabranth statue. Thing looks impressive! They had up full scale Gabranth mask, but I like the figure more. Reminds me of some Boris Vallejo artwork.

A full set of Final Fantasy figures released by Square Soft back in 1997. The person that posted this up stated it took them 5 years to piece this whole set together and I wouldn’t doubt it! There were also only 3000 of each made so take that into consideration and all the people that only bought a few hear and there, the amount of full sets in anyone’s collection must be pretty low.

Warning: Biohazard

/ 7 years ago

Resident Evil (known as Biohazard in Japan) has some of the best merchandise / collectible stuff out there for any video game in my opinion. It is also one of my all time favorite video game series so I decided to make a post on some rare / interesting items I have found.

A Resident Evil first aid kit may come in handy if the zombies actually ever do come for us. I like everything in this auction! It is just full of AWESOME and I know I will be saying this a lot but Japanese gamers get the coolest stuff. This kit was actually a prize that people could win playing a Biohazard Pachinko Slot Machine!

How awesome is that! Unfortunatly, I could not find one for sale. 😉

These keys right here should be familiar to any old school RE fan. These are full scale reproductions (can you say “reproduction” if the item’s were never real in the first place?) of the mansion keys used in the original Resident Evil. They actually made 4 different keys and only gave away 1 key to each person that attended the 1996 Tokyo Game Show so to get all 4 was nearly imposible. Said to be the rarest RE collectible, even seeing 2 of them posted up is a hard thing to find.

Movie props! Premiere Collectibles, one of the biggest prop sellers on ebay always get their hands on the Resident Evil movie props. They have a ton of them posted up right here at Premiere Props. This one is my favorite of what is posted up now thought I am usually more of a sucker for any of the props with the Umbrella logo on them.

If a gun is used in a Resident Evil (or to be more specific, BIOHAZARD) game then they have made an Airsoft gun replica and alot of them are licensed by Capcom. Not too many games that I know of have a line of guns! Of course, as always, all the cool stuff has to be kept from us via the great blue sea. Damn you again Japan, you luck bastards!

I will close with a rant:

Another RED SYSTEM!!! WTF!!! Ok, Dreamcast puts out their rare RE version of the Dreamcast system which was the regular Dreamcast, but RED. Then I hear that a limited editions Resident Evil Xbox 360 is in the works and I got excited and guess what? They did it AGAIN! Yeah, let’s paint the system red! Wanna add a zombie on it or at least a cool RE logo? NAAAAHH! Let’s just make it RED!!! Making a red system does not make it a RE system. I guess Virtual Boy was the Resident Evil edition.
*End rant*

A few rare Nintedo items

/ 7 years ago

Super Nintendo Control Deck Tester. This was posted up by someone who supposedly used to work for Nintendo and he states that this is used for warranty repair checks. Sounds legit to me though just by looking at this it screams SNES. Not sure anyone would have a use for this other that collection but still a cool item and I know I am a fan of seeing gaming stuff that I have never seen before.

This is not as rare but good luck finding one in the US. This iss the Nintendo 64DD, a disc drive that attached to the N64 for proprietary 64 MB magnetic disks for expanded data storage. This was never released in the US and even in Japan few games were released for it. One game to make note of is Mario Artist.

Mario Artist was pretty much an updated version of Mario Paint for the SNES. They also released some “Pocket Monster” titles for the N64 64DD which you may better know as Pokemon.

And here we have a Game Boy Prototype cart for Final Fantasy 2. I have seen a few prototype carts up for auction but what I like about this one is that their are actually some differences between the prototype and the retail version and he shows this in the auction.

Hope you are diggin the rare Nintendo posts. I am going to try and switch things up all the time and make sure to touch on a little bit of all things, old school and new.

Happy Birthday Mario Mario and Lugi Mario!

/ 7 years ago

Here is the best of the best, and what I mean by that is unopened copies of 3 of the best video games of all time. Mario 1, Mario 2 (Doki Doki Panic anyone?), and Mario 3!

As I bonus I found this Mc Donald’s display case back from the Super Mario Bros 3 release with the toys still in it! Same thing that they have in Mcd’s lobbies around the world. I would LOVE to have a nice display piece like this but no way I have the room (or the cash to spend for that matter)!

And how can we wish the plumber a happy birthday without covering the table with his own Vintage “Happy Birthday” Mario tablecloth!

But enough with sitting here reading a blog about the ultimate video game icon! Go blow the dust out of your carts and get to appreciating the mans legacy!

Or, play this weird modified version of Super Mario Bros 3 in your browser: http://www.virtualnes.com/play/?id=RMH-30&s=10

Starting off with an old school BANG!

/ 7 years ago

Welcome to Gamer Noize! Your place to find the best Video Game related auctions out there! To get things started we have to go WAY back… How else would we kick this off but with some old school gaming.

ATARI NES SNES N64 SEGA PS1 DREAMCAST XBOX 8 SYSTEM LOT

A little bit of EVERYTHING! From The Gemini (that can rock old school Atari) upto the 1st Xbox!

Pros:
– DREAMCAST! I got one when it first came out and LOVED IT! I think it was ahead of it’s time but they did not have enough support. Blue Stinger was one badass game for it and Sonic Adventures as well.
– Skate or Die and TMNT Arcade for NES. Two of my favorite games of all time.
– N64 Boomerang Controller. Akward? Yes. Rare? Yes.
– Donkey Kong and Zelda for N64. 2 excelent games.

Cons:
– No games for the Dreamcast?
– The starting price… WAY too high!

The seller also has up some other game auctions including this one with a weird and UGLY 3rd party SNES controller I have never seen…

ORIGINAL SUPER NINTENDO SYSTEM Mario Paint SNES control

Pros: Mario Paint!
Cons: Missing the OG Mario Paint mousepad (seen below)

Those were his most interesting auctions. I think the first one is highly overpriced but whatever.

Check out his other auctions for some other gaming stuff (but tons of other crap to sift thru):
