NES games

Recently a family member made some mistakes and was forced to move. Since she had no place to put all of her stuff she had to give a lot of it away. One of the items that happened to make its way to me was an old TV. At first I didn't know what to do with it. I don't have a converter box so I can't watch over the air broadcasts. My HD-DVD player doesn't have the proper connections so I can't watch movies. So what could I do with it? As we were about to get rid of it I had a spark of inspiration. Maybe I should get a Nintendo. I've always wanted a NES, but have never been able to get one. This is the perfect opportunity.

 

So now goes the search for a system and games. Anyone have some suggestions on where to look and what games to get?

My advise is not to buy the old nintendos. Buy one of the newer top loading nintendos. The old ones are a pain in the ass. Constantly trying to get the game to go in properly and work.

 

The top loaders work just like the super nintendos. Cartridges go in the top and hardly to never have a problem.

 

I totally second this statement...

I'll third that...you can pick up the new consoles pretty cheap and they play both the original NES and SNES games both.

I won this auction yesterday. I decided to take a gamble based on the information I had gathered. I considered buying one of the top loading systems, but decided against it. One of the main reasons is that I want to play Duck Hunt. The NES's peripherals are not compatible with most of the top loaders. Not only that, there are several games that you can't even play.

I wanted to buy one of these systems, but found they are more rare. The system is not without its own problems as well. The thing I don't get about this system is why Nintendo took it off the market so quickly. If they would have left it out there longer perhaps it would have taken off. If nothing else it would be easier to get a more reliable system now.

I miss my old NES. It crapped out sometime in the mid to late 90s and I never got around to replacing it. I wasted entirely too many hours playing Ms.Pac-Man, Super Mario 3, and RoboCop on that bad boy. For all I know, the cartridges are still moldering away in the back of a closet at my Mom's house.

Nintendo let it's patents or something run on on the NES and several aftermarket companies started making top loading type systems that used the NES controllers and played their games. I bought one of them a few years back and they work great and they don't have the issues the original NES had with the flash on/off. Remember having to blow in the game cartridges? hahahaha

I just hooked up my newly acquired NES. At first all the system did was blink. I thought it was a goner. I kept messing with it until it started working. Now it's running smoothly. Too bad the only game I have is Yoshi's Cookie. That game sucks.

If I remember right isnt Yoshi's cookie something like Tetris? Stuff falling down that you have to stack. That blinking is the main reason these are a pain in the ass. If you want to spend the money you can buy replacement pin connectors and it will work like new. Its been awhile since I looked but I think they were running like 8.95 at one time

Yoshi's Cookie is kind of like Tetris, but not nearly as fun. I doubt I'll ever play it again. After getting my system I lost interest for a while. Too many other things going on. I did buy Tetris, Play Action Football, and Baseball Simulator 1.000. Tetris on NES is not nearly as good as other versions. It's still fun. Play Action Football is basically unplayable. I might give it another go, but if I still can't figure it out I doubt I'll touch another NES football game. My favorite out of the games is Baseball Simulator. There are many problems within the game, but it's still fun as heck. That's what matters most.

 

I suppose I won't be buying any more games for a while. When I do I suppose I'll get some of the Ninja Turtles games, River City Ransom, Rampage, Smash TV, Mario/Duck Hunt, and any other suggestions that sound good.

    • New album 'Life Will Never Be The Same' out March 3 through Mighty Music. Press release: After their previous release “The Sky is the Limit”, Norwegian band STARGAZER entered the radar of connoisseurs of the hard rocking world. The group was loudly hailed as one to watch. They received a lot of great reviews all over the western world and were, back then in late 2019, ready to take on the world for serious touring. But serious touring saw an abrupt end due to Covid-19 for almost every band in 2020-21, with Stargazer being no exception. The nordic five-piece didn’t loose their spirit and, diligently, took the downtime to start penning their next album. Produced by guitar player William Ernstsen and vocalist Tore André Helgemo, “Life Will Never Be The Same” is the result of those dark times with a silver lining ahead. Engineered by William at Jedimasterstudios, Trondheim, and mixed and mastered in Medley Studios, Copenhagen, by Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Electric Guitars, etc), “Life Will Never Be The Same” is exactly the kind of album that you’d expect from a matured Stargazer and then some. The five-piece powerhouse hammers on with Scandinavian vibes that consists of virtuosity and a vintage sound with a modern twist. Firing on all cylinders in combination with the sense of good melodies, great riffs, solos and songwriting handcraft. With one of rock’s best voices and one of the best blues-based hard rock guitar players around today. All this on top of a rock steady hard groove with killer rock songs such as “Live My Dream”, or down to the most tender and heartfelt tunes, as for example the single “Live Today”, with emotions worn on their sleeves. “Live Will Never Be The Same” is the sound of Norwegian classic hard rock flagship, and Stargazer sets sail again with its this third release in their discography. One to change their life – and yours – for good. Tracklisting: 1. Can You Conceive It 2. Live My Dream 3. Rock The Sky 4. Live Today 5. Don’t Kill 6. Will I Come To Heaven 7. Heartbroken 8. Turn Off The Light 9. Beyond The Moon 10. Take Me Home 11. Push Me

    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
