FFS sort that out as soon as possible! You aren't a gamer unless you have played that!

Right, you just shamed me into buying a copy on ebay.

I take it the cart uses a battery back up to save progress? Probably have to change that before I start playing. Or could you get through the whole thing in a really long sitting?

You could get through it in a really long sitting but you will probably get stuck. And die a lot. So change the battery first.

Yup, my physical copy of Super Metroid has some super freaky german subtitles, not happy with it, but it's better than not having a copy at all.
I played and finished it the first time around in all it's english, big boxed, giant manual glory, finishing that was a good day, oh yes, a good day indeed.

Playing Rogue Galaxy now, not strictly retro I know, but it is not in the current gen and is awfully good, I can see it gracing the DS at some point though.

DS is becoming the home for JRPGs at the moment. Good thing in my opinion as I do a lot of my gaming on it.

I'm going to try some draqon quest on DS. Hey it's a graphical update of a retro game so still retro

Must get into those DS Dragon Quest games. DQVIII was so good.

I'm not sure I could classify Rogue Galaxy as a JRPG. It was pretty good from what I played. Then Persona 3 came along

I just recieved my A320 Dingo digital player so I have 4 gig of snes and megadrive roms on it already. Man what a great little device, great screen, charges over usb, play vids, radio and ebooks and has video out. Cant go wrong, time to play some of old classics that I missed out first time around.

My bro picked one of those up, and yup it's pretty nice,
BUT

Won't a PSP pretty much do everything it can do but better?
I mean it has a bigger screen, stable emulators, it has tons of great homebrew.

My bro isn't all that impressed with the Dingo at all as a matter of fact.

Yes but a PSP is a good bit more expensive, bigger, heavier, shorter battery life and it uses god those awful memory duo sticks. And its also Sony

As opposed to the controls on a Chinese made dodgy media player?
Believe me, the Dingo is no great shakes.
The emulators are not that good and you have to wonder just how long they will be supported, while the PSP homebrew scene is alive and well, not to mention the fact you can convert your entire PSone collection to work on the PSP, so I have Gran Turismo 2 now on the go, can't do that with a Dingo

yes you should DQIV is great.

Btw, amazon are selling the roguelike Shiren for £6 on DS. Come on Retro, you know you want the frustration of a roguelike.

I'm trying to clear Zombies Ate My Neighbours on the Snes. Stuck in Splatterhouse 2 for MD. It'll take a serious session to get out of the current bit, you've jumped down some hole and after finding your girlfriend but she gets grabbed by demons.

I stick on Virtua Racing now and again because it's something different and I like the feel of it. I could play a much better racing game for the PSOne but...I just like Virtua Racing for the MD, it's cool.

Tetris Blast is in the Gameboy, love that game, brilliant. Castlevania is in the other bay of the FC Twin and I haven't, shamefully, played it in ages.
