Hey Mom, I want Mortal Kombat for X-Mas!!!

/ 8 years ago

Oh the joy of Christmas! You wake up, run downstairs and see ALL those gifts! You run back up and wake up mom and dad with a series of “MOM MOM MOM MOM!!!!!!!1111”. Your parents saunter down the stairs like zombies and will not let the gift opening commence until they have their coffee. You sit their like a crack addict rocking back and forth, looking at the gifts just HOPING that game you wanted is under the tree. You FINALLY get to open gifts and…

Mortal Kombat (Tiger Handheld)
Posted by: electronichandhelds
A Tiger handheld?!!! Your parents look on with smiles thinking they got you EXACTLY what you wanted and their faces soon drop as they notice you are not happy. Yeah, good old Tiger electronics!

Altered Beast (Tiger Handheld)
Posted by: momandboysshop
I think they made one of these crappy handhelds for every popular game. Altered Beast being one of my favorite Genesis games, not so much in Tiger form (the handheld, not meaning when you turn into a tiger).

Sonic 2 (Tiger Handheld)
Posted by: electronichandhelds
Even Sonic was not safe! Looks like Sega was fine whoring out their property to Tiger to make these games (which were all pretty much the same game play with slightly different layouts) but Nintendo never gave rights to their properties…

Double Dragon II (Tiger Handheld)
Posted by: electronichandhelds
Nintendo game? Yes, but this is a Konami game. I am guessing Nintendo itself would not give the rights to Tiger to put out Mario and Zelda games like this since they had the Game & Watch series which was pretty much the same kind of games.

Do you like card games?

/ 8 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

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

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!

A few rare Nintedo items

/ 8 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!

/ 8 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
