    forgot about the athletics pack. As I recall we also have the box for that

    come and pickup a console.

    gonna do a couple of NES afternoons in the next few weeks to play all these games with a couple of friends and a couple of beers. Makes me glad that I have a few TV's!

    Pasey25: Now THAT's dedication! :shock:

    Over the last year or so the prices for old NES/SMS games etc has actually gone up. Before a game would go for $2-3 now i've seen them as high as $6. Rip-off :p

    I really should buy a replacement NES cartridge connector on of these days.

    now they are a rip off - $20 for a connector? thats criminal. There are ways to refurb your existing connector without having to outlay any cash. I do it on all the consoles I get, as well as disabling the lockout chip to get rid of the blinking and allowing the playing of games from other countries

    Well, there aren't any benefits... yet. We're currently recruiting.
    But I'm trying to get a friend code sharing thing happening here so we can do massive Wi-Fi games.

    Anyways, you're #33

    i could take a look at it if you like. I'm no expert but I'm a pretty succesful tinkerer. Don't have a SNES to test it with though :(

    Maybe go to a place like Game Traders and ask them to have a look at it?

    I'm not sure if I should PM all the members with the wrong numbers in their signitures... Because it makes us seem a little... um... disorganised?
