SD2SNES Super Nintendo/Famicom Flash Card – Adam Koralik

I have heard of the Everdrive but never heard of this add-on or the other one mentioned in this video. However, based on his review – I may end up with this one or a very similar item (but a different version for a different system).

Overpaying for an NES Game

Ahhh the NES, a favorite of many a child’s life. At least if you were growing up in the late 80s, early 90s. For me, I didn’t have the NES. My parents wouldn’t buy one nor would they buy an SNES. So the first console that I owned was an original Playstation Dual Shock (NOTE: It was before it was called a PS1). Still, I remember the NES and SNES. And while the NES isn’t my favorite system of all time I understand why someone people would have the that opinion. And why you would collect for the system.

What I don’t understand is overpaying for specific carts/accessories. Super rare/prototype items go for BIG BUCKS!!! Like thousands to start. I mean COME ON!!!! It’s just an NES cart!!! It doesn’t deserve that much cash!!!!

Of course, I am a fairly poor so throwing away money on anything more than 20 bucks starts to make me nervous. And if I am throwing away a hundred or more than it better be awesome. But beyond that I dunno. It just seems like a waste. I could get so much more for the money than a stupid cart with games that already exist in it’s entirety. I guess I just don’t have the money that these people do:

Only 116 copies of Nintendo World Championships were ever made, as part of a special event in 1990.

The first bid came in at $4,999 (£3,000), but the game is likely to fetch more, one Nintendo expert said.

Gaming Week 3 – Thinking about the Next Gen

With the Next Generation of Video Game Consoles finally starting up, we are left thinking about the ones that have come before and what will happen next. Is NES is better than a PS4? Maybe not, but is it still relevant in today’s world? Will we still be playing retro games in the future? And what does that mean for the next gen?  These questions are what we’re trying to answer.
