Great video!! I enjoy the stickers on my sealed games. Little off topic but still Nintendo related. I enjoy collecting used NES games with rental stickers.

Memories of a time when you could rent an NES game from your local grocery store or pharmacy.

Hey ice!  Good to see you back!  I never rented games but I can see how cool it would be today to have some of those used games with the stickers on them.  :)

Hey! Thanks!

I might be the only who appreciates it so hopefully no one tries selling used Super Mario/Duck Hunt with rental stickers for big money. lol

The N64 has a fair amount of exclusive rental games that either the sticker was accepted or you destroyed the cart trying to remove it.

I remember being able to rent snes games in the uk, would be a great business if someone set up a rental place like that now I'm sure

Wetrix is a magnificent game. Well worth going back to. It got an "update" on PS2 but I didn't like it as it sullied the purity of the original. The Dreamcast got a port too which was a straight graphical update - but it lost the great soundtrack. Still a nice version though I prefer the original.

Here's a lark - me making a mess of F-Zero X Queen Cup.

I uploaded this because some of the deaths are amusing (to me at any rate)

Got another PAL->NTSC upgrade.

Stone cold classic game this. Nintendo at their finest here. The control scheme is surprisingly deep yet accessible for beginners.

Have snagged a cart only copy of US version of Tetrisphere. I have the PAL version in really nice condition with manual and box. Japan didn't get this game so I don't see the point in paying for iffy US box art.

Very fond of Tetrisphere - it can really get its claws into me. Nothing like Tetris of course but it's a very satisfying game.

This arrived today.... Treasure's Bangai O for N64.


Dear me this is wonderful. I have this for Dreamcast but have been after this for a while. Funded by several game sales!!! Plays brilliantly...It has deeper gameplay. The powerup system was stripped down for Dreamcast.
