Famicom trivia cards??

Anyone know what these are? As you can see, a buddy of mine ended up with a whole bunch of these but has no idea what they are or where they're from. They look like some sort of officially licenced trivia cards with areas to scratch off, but there's zero English on em and I've never seen their like ...

No no...thanks for the detail! I understood what a meltdown was but there's sooooo much BS flying about. I didn't figure an explosion was imminent....I was more curious about the potential exclusion zone and environmental damage with the reactors being that close to the ocean in the event of a total...

The level of coverage is starting to create panic....which is I think why the Jp gov't is trying to understate it. On the other hand....it DOES seem like the reactors are headed for a meltdown....and if they do....eek. I'm starting to wonder how much actual REAL news we ever get honestly. Realistica...

I liked Dark Seal. I haven't played the sequel though....Ghostbusters reminds me of it a bit honestly. I saw a few of my favorites mentioned, but they're all emulated I think....Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, Tenchi Wo Kurau 2, etc. I've got boot PCBs of those last too...finding legit suicide modded ones....

The only thing on my PS3 I've bought and put a lot of time into (and was glad) was Valkyria (easily my best game this gen, but I've only played a few) and Wipeout HD which I think I should start playing again. What about Demon's Souls? Give that one a go? It's pretty intense. I also really enjoyed ...

Nice to see an intelligent conversation about where the hell we're headed. Honestly, except for the occasional AAA title, most of the new games I buy are for the DS and PSP because that's where the solid and more innovative stuff is coming out. Most of the major console releases are derivative crap....

Some good picks there, I forgot about the eXceed series until you mentioned it but I couldn't get them to run on my Win7 x64 machine. The game would always freeze somewhere in the middle of the 1st level on all of the games by this dev.) That's depressing, as that's the same OS I run....did you try...

I ordered a couple of Touhou games already.

Must-have doujin games?

GP told me I should post here about this. I found a few older threads on the subject but nothing very comprehensive. Been a member here for a while but haven't been here much *blush* I've only recently discovered doujin shmups and doujin games thanks to a few quick mentions on the shmups boards and ...

FS: Cool Saturn (complete and boxed!) NOW W/PICS!

Hey guys! I almost never post here cause I suck mostly (and I'm broke a lot :)) but I've got something I figured this forum might be more interested in than most. Ok guys, I've got a line on a different Saturn that I want, and as a result I want to sell my Cool Saturn to pay for it. As you know, the...

What are these miniature swords? (Translation needed!) PICS!

Found these at a local shop and the guy doesn't have any clue what they are or what they're worth. Neither do I but they're damned cool. Took some pics....if anyone can ID them, I'd very much appreciate it! Each Sword is about 1 foot long. All made by Jonesky Ltd. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v...

I'd say that Eliminate Down is really good tho...just super hard. I also HIGHLY recommend Gleylancer (one of my favorite shmups EVER) and Undead Line (also obscenely difficult).

Neat Super Famicom find!

Found a neat Super Famicom controller today in the Asian mall in Toronto. Was collecting dust in a storefront...I'm told it was there for over two years too! Brand spanking new, but a rough box.

I don't think any other Mr. Driller game has 2 player Versus mode. This one has blocks that reverse the screen so your driller falls down and the blocks come down at him and blocks that reverse it side to side, all in 3D. It's really neat when you can screw your opponent that way :D Unless the Cube ...
