- Wanted to give you all a SNES collection update since a few people had been asking: 720 out of 724 (99.45%; missing 4). - The above 6 titles picked up in the last 2 months. Thank you @snesfinder for Incantation and Ardy Lightfoot. Iโ€™ve known about Jon for many years but this time was lucky enough to chat with him on the phone in a more personal and direct (but also professional) way, and he was extremely friendly and completely easy to work with. We arranged a trade - he got 4 of my lesser expensive CIBs and cash and I got these 2 absolute beauties - they are the nicest condition Incantation and Ardy Lightfoot I've ever seen and yet for Jon they are condition DOWNGRADES ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ. Jon has been working on a complete FACTORY SEALED Super Nintendo set for years now and is about 2/3rds done, and in addition has an incredible Game Boy and NES set as well, among others. Absolutely incredible. Jon, it was a pleasure. ๐Ÿ™ - Thank you @gdcgamesnumber1 for Final Fight 3, picked up at PRGE. They had a CIB copy for sale but the box was beat, so I passed. By chance, they happened to find a minty box at the show for a great price, so we swapped the boxes and I bought the CIB. Thanks Carlos, Oscar, Jesse, Dan, David, and crew! - Thank you @themaxvoltage on NintendoAge for Demon's Crest. I found him through eBay but we arranged a side deal through NintendoAge. eBay is cracking down now on people who do side deals because they want their cut on the sale - they won't hesitate to call you and even have been suspending/banning accounts lately for it - so ya just gotta be cryptic when sharing contact info when talking through eBay messages. In the end we both saved. ๐Ÿ‘ - Super Turrican 2 was an eBay BIN for a seemingly fair price in this current asininely priced market ($600 like WTF?! I remember when this was $20.), and Ninja Warriors was pieced together over the past few months from getting the box, manual, and cart from separate sources. - The North American SNES set is the hardest set I've ever completed. Harder than NES and Game Boy by far. I vastly underestimated it. I want to type more here but stupid Instagram character limit. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ - #VGDBCollectionProgress #VGDBCollectionProgressSNES

- Happy Halloween, Everyone! ๐Ÿ‘น๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿ˜ฑ - There are so many scary games for SNES that it could give you nightmares for weeks! ๐Ÿ‘ป Among them is one of my favorites of all time, Zombies Ate My Neighbors (Konami, 1993), and its lesser-known sequel Ghoul Patrol (JVC, 1994) - ZAMN is an overhead run-and-gun horror title where you play as Zeke and Julie, and must rescue your neighbors from horrible monsters like vampires, werewolves, huge demonic babies, squid men, aliens, UFOs, and of course, zombies! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ - Ghoul Patrol is an overhead action game where you reprise the roles of Zeke and Julie, and this time travel through five worlds to save their town from a horror exhibit that has come to life! ๐Ÿ’€ - Both are fun titles - if you have a chance give them a try - IF YOU DARE. ๐Ÿ•ฏ

- Thank you for your patience and continued interest! Mega Man & Bass will go on sale at 7AM PST on 10/27 in our online store! We made only 250 copies, of which 125 are designated for sale in our online store. We will be selling these on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis, so be sure to pick up a copy or 2 for your friends and family or forever hold your peace! - As with all VGDB releases, each piece is made of the highest quality. It comes with: brand new produced game cartridge, full color 20 page manual, die cut box, vibrant and brilliantly designed colors, VGDB hologram sticker, each copy individually numbered, and the copy you receive is sealed. It "feels" like you might have bought it in a Toys R Us in 1998... except you didn't, because the North American version of this gem was sadly canceled. The VGDB edition the best way to enjoy Mega Man & Bass in full English on original hardware exactly as it was intended! ๐Ÿ˜ - So what should we price it at? We routinely see poor quality CIB copies of this game, often with a hacked together badly taped box, and sometimes "complete" but with no manual or in a random awkward plastic case, selling for $60 and sometimes more. The VGDB edition is superior to any of them. We wish to create only high quality games that we would want ourselves, that come in a cardboard box and look great next to all your other games on a shelf. We also seek to only produce games that are fun and/or interesting from a gaming point of view. This item is made to satisfy both the gamer and collector urges in all of us. VGDB has decided to sell these for the low price of just $60 each! - We will be selling the first 20 copies IN PERSON this weekend at Portland Retro Gaming Expo! ๐ŸŽ‰ If you're at PRGE stop by booth 210 and say hi to @romeobgh and his incredible crew consisting of @markfsmodernlife, @superamazeballz, @park1cb, and @inlandempireretro ! ๐ŸŽ‰ If you wish to get a copy at PRGE I recommend getting there FAST but I hope you will stop by and say hi regardless. - 7AM PST on Friday 10/27, they will go on sale. Be ready. Link in bio! ๐ŸŽ‰

- Pokรฉmon Typing Adventure for Nintendo DS (Nintendo, 2012). Was released in United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, and Japan only. The U.K. version (shown above) is in English but the Italian version is in Italian. Comes with a keyboard peripheral to connect to your DS to help improve your typing skills! The Japanese release also has both a white and a black keyboard version. This is not very difficult to find and I'm not quite sure why but it's one of my favorite collection items and I love it! ๐Ÿ˜ - #VGDBSpotlight #VGDBGameSpotlight

Nintendo was able to provide stores across the country with a much larger supply than previously anticipated, so more people were able to walk away happy that they got a copy. Even stores that had people lining up outside around the building, most people were still able to walk away with a copy.

They will be available on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis, so be sure to pick up a copy or 2 for your friends and family or forever hold your peace! - The price we have decided to sell these at is $60; we have seen other repro makers in the past sell these for between $120 and $200 each but we wish to keep our price low, not only so more people can enjoy this, but also to pave the way for more CIB N64 reproductions to be made in the future by us and others. - THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: OCARINA OF TIME MASTER QUEST is the Second Quest of Ocarina of Time, a fully-finished game that Nintendo never released on N64. "Second Quest" is a recurring mode in the Legend of Zelda series where the overworld is the same, but shops, dungeons, items, heart pieces, characters, and pretty much everything else is rearranged and updated, and dungeons are a LOT harder, to provide a completely NEW, FRESH game play experience to a previously beaten game that you love. Master Quest was officially released in 2003 on Nintendo GameCube, but has never officially been released on Nintendo 64. This is a high-quality fan-edition of the game to satisfy the gamer and collector urges in all of us! Dost ye have what it takes? ๐Ÿค” โš”๏ธ - 7AM PST on Friday 9/8, they will go on sale. Be ready.

They will be sold on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE basis, so be sure to be ready at 7AM on Friday to pick up as many as you can for your friends and family or forever hold your peace! - I know what you're thinking: "I've seen other companies selling these before at $120 and sometimes even more, and the VGDB edition is FAR SUPERIOR to any previously created edition of the game. After all, the VGDB edition is just so amazing! It has brand new produced game cartridges that save perfectly, a full color 28 page instructions manual, die cut box, vibrant and brilliantly designed colors, VGDB hologram sticker, each copy individually numbered, and they come SEALED exactly as if it had bought it in a store in 1998. When I hold it in my hand I get that incredible nostalgic feeling, it's absolutely so nice! So, how much HIGHER than $120 should VGDB charge? $130? $150? $200?" - We have thought long and hard about this. We want this to be enjoyed by as many as possible. We also wish to popularize N64 CIB reproductions, and set a new benchmark price that all CIB N64 reproduction makers in the future will be required to set their price at in order to be competitive. We see NES and SNES CIB reproductions often, but N64 reproductions are a new thing, and we want to see more of them. For these reasons and more, VGDB has decided to sell these for the low price of just $60 each! - I can assure you, for all the work and time that goes into creating these, combined with high production costs per copy, we are not making much at all on these. It is a passion project of an extremely small production run; we make these because we love the games; we want to share this passion with the world and we wish for it to be enjoyed by as many as possible. Our mission and what drives us is to spread this infectious enthusiasm across the world and never let it die. - 7AM PST on Friday 9/8, they will go on sale. Be ready. Link in bio! ๐ŸŽ‰

- #SeriesWednesday - Pocky & Rocky is a somewhat little-known series by Natsume which was first introduced in 1992 but seems to have gained popularity in recent years in the retro gaming scene. It's like a platform game combined with a space shooter - no other game is quite like it. Imagine if Galaga and Super Mario Bros had a baby, flawless in execution, presented with the most adorable art-style akin to Kirby's Dream Land, and set to a kick-ass Japanese-influenced soundtrack, and you've got Pocky & Rocky. ๐Ÿ˜… - The great gaming connoisseur @pureprinny came over recently and we beat the original Pocky & Rocky. That was fun. It's easy to beat games when you have him around.

- Athletic World was released 7/1987 and Stadium Events 9/1987. At the time, Nintendo was facing criticism from parents and old/smelly/jaded/clueless people alike claiming that Nintendo was to blame for making America's youth fat & lazy, due to a lack of exercise from playing. In response to this, Nintendo quickly made a deal with Bandai for the rights to the Family Fun Fitness pad in September 1987 (the same month Stadium Events was released), and with it they were able to re-publish Stadium Events as their own game. All Family Fun Fitness branded products were recalled from store shelves, which Nintendo would re-brand as the "Power Pad". This was great for Nintendo because it meant America's youth could still be consumers of Nintendo products while silencing some of their critics at the same time. - 1988 was a formative year. โ€ข Nintendo released the Power Pad, which came bundled with World Class Track Meet. This game is actually just Stadium Events but the title screen was altered to reflect a different name. In the game, you use the Power Pad to race against opponents named Turtle ๐Ÿข, Bear ๐Ÿป, Horse ๐Ÿด, Rabbit ๐Ÿฐ, Bobcat ๐Ÿ…, and finally Cheetah ๐Ÿ†, each of them increasingly faster in speed as the one before it. Can you beat them all? โ€ข Nintendo released the Power Set, which is a NES system that came bundled with the Power Pad and the 3-in-1 Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet game cart. โ€ข Nintendo also released the Action Set, which is a NES system that came bundled with the 2-in-1 Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt game cart. The Action Set went on to be Nintendo's highest selling console set, with an estimated 40 million units sold, making Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt the most common game cart for the NES. โ€ข Bandai re-released Athletic World with an updated boxart and re-branded to show it being compatible with the Power Pad. - The games Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt were also each released as their own standalone games in 1985. - Since they were pack-ins, the games WCTM, SMB/DH, and SMB/DH/WCTM never came with an official box. The boxes for those 3 in the pic above are custom made so that they look good with the others. - #VGDBSets #VGDBSubsets

- Shout outs to @allan_pracio_alvarez from the speedrunning world for achieving a new world record in Super Mario 64! He collected all 120 Stars and beat the final Bowser in an incredible 1:39:28! That's UNDER 100 minutes! ๐Ÿ˜ฏโฑ - The Bowser throws at the very end are very difficult, and many SM64 speedrunners often miss them which costs ~16 seconds each time and ruins runs; so that Cheese nailed all 3 of them with 6000 people watching and under the pressure of knowing that if he missed even one that he would not get the world record is impressive in itself. - Just 1 month previous, Cheese achieved the first legendary 1:39 with a landmark time of 1:39:57, which was a time believed for many years to be impossible. Then another speedrunner named Puncayshun beat his record with 1:39:49, but Cheese just reclaimed his position at the top with an incredible 1:39:28! โฑ๐Ÿ˜ฒ - Now, Cheese is working on the first 1:38 ever, but itโ€™s going to take an incredible amount of grinding. SM64 is the most popular game for speedrunning and itโ€™s already been optimized and re-optimized over and over again for speed, with some of the most difficult and precise strategies (which are highly prone to error) being used to shave off fractions of seconds. So itโ€™s going to take a lot of work and additional advancements in the game to get there but Iโ€™m positive a 1:38 will happen, if not by Cheese, then by somebody, itโ€™s just a matter of when. ๐Ÿง€ - #SpeedRunning #SGDQ #GamesDoneQuick #AGDQ #SuperMario64 #SM64 #cheese05 #Gaming #VideoGames #Gamer #SIGLEMIC #Twitch #StreamerNation #Streaming #SpeedRun #AwesomeSauce #KillTheAnimals #SaveTheAnimals #FrankerZ #Bowser #BowserInTheSky #PlayYourFuckingGames #RetroCollective #RetroCollectiveUS #RCNorthAmerica #RetroCollectiveEurope #Ninstagram #Nintendo64 #IgersNintendo #NintendoLife

- It's #CIBSunday - Final Fantasy (Square, 1990) was conceived under the working title "Fighting Fantasy". I donโ€™t know the accuracy of this, but according to renowned composer of the game/series Nobuo Uematsu, it was renamed to "Final Fantasy" because Square was facing bankruptcy at the time, and it was thought the game could be the company's last. Today, the Final Fantasy franchise has sold over 130 million units across 54 titles, over $22 billion in revenue. Not bad for a "final" game. - #FinalFantasy #GameCollecting #VideoGames #Nintendo #Ninstagram #NintendoLife #IgersNintendo #RetroCollective #RetroCollectiveUS #RetroCollectiveCanada #RCEurope #RetroGaming #RetroGames #GirlsThatGame #GuysThatGame #NES #SNES #SuperNintendo #N64 #Nintendo64 #GameCube #Wii #WiiU #NintendoSwitch #VGDB #GameBoy #FinalFantasy15 #FinalFantasyLegend #FinalFantasyXV
