Welcome to the site/forum. ;D

Great place to talk about the Famicom, whenever I get any Famicom/FDS question, this is the first place I come.

This is the official stickied thread for introducing yourself.

I'm Jerah, been playing Famicom for only few months, but love the NES. I'm an administrator here (thanks to JL) and I've been making all the changes you see here and on Famicom World.

I'm Josh, the webmaster of Famicom World. I've been a Famicom gameplayer since December 2004, when my friend gave me Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Famicom for Christmas. I also got a pirated Famicom that day, so I played it. :) I'm a big fan of video games and game shows.

Hey my name is Kenny , i'm 21 years old and i'm from Belgium.  Sadly there aren't much famicom games in belgium so i have to pick them up cheap from ebay. Wich explains why i only have like 4 games  ;D I don't have a famicom but i've got a clone. I mostly collect for the NES and other main stream consoles like super nintendo and master sytem...... My other hobbies are playing soccer and foosball. I still go to school and i have a girlfriend for about 3 years and a couple of months ( i've lost the count  ;D) If there's anything else you guys want to know , just ask  8)

Hi! I found this site and forums through the guys of nesforums.com.
My name's Manuel, I'm 27 years old, from Germany and I love old games, especially Famicom and stuff.
I'm still a student in Munich University. My major is Japanese Studies, my two minors are Chinese Studies and Theoretical Linguistics.
And yeah, I can speak and read Japanese. :) That's why I even enjoy Japanese RPGs (@JC ;))
Looking forward to some good conversations with you guys.

I'm Antione Rosario (as in Rosario Dawson), from the USA in the state of Virginia. I'm into retro import systems such as the Famicom, Super Famicom, PC Engine and the Sega Saturn that died too early due to Western Anti-2D propaganda. I'm kinda blindly learning Japanese on my own a bit. I can read katakana and that's it.

Hey everybody, I'm Bryan. I'm 16 and have been collecting classic games for a year now (NES, SNES, Genesis, etc...) my favourite being the NES. As fate would have it, I have dipped my foot in the Famicom world by having a 31-in-1 multicart and Rockman 4 (played on NES via converter and Game Genie )for a while now and now looking to purchase a Famicom to extend my sights.

Hi, I'm Joey, I'm from Canada and love Nintendo.

I love to play all the Nintendo Systems I have been able to play. Nintendo just has a way of making their systems and games that's just so amazing.

I have always been interested in the Famicom, but have never known much about it, or have a Famicom System. That's one of the reasons I love this site and forum, I want to start and get some Famicom Games and I can come here to get all the info on them.

A reason I am really starting to love the Famicom is it has so many amazing games that didn't make it anywhere beyond the Famicom. Now there are tons of new games I can play that I never knew existed.

I love all things old school nintendo (NES, SNES) but havent really gotten into Famicom. FamicomJL is a friend of mine who asked me to join the board in hopes of learning a thing or too about the awesomeness that is the Famicom.

Hey, my name is Jefferson I'm from Brazil, São Paulo capital. I'm from the NES/Famicon Forum www.nes.com.br/forum, I'm no collector but do appreciate games from both NES and Famicon. I think that collect costs for games, consoles and accessories in good conditions is really great, therefore I pay more attention to the fun it provides.
Congratulations for the Site and for forum, I wait to be able

It's good to have you here. You Brazilians are lucky -- you have great pirate games in Brazil. I've tried to get some, but they are hard to come by. You should hook me up with some!

I'm Kristofer and I'm from Sweden.
This is actually the first time I introduce myself at a forum, I dunno why I haven't before. Some might know me from other forums, usually by the nickname shrimp or sometimes as kralleman.
I've been lurking around here a little and thought I might as well register as it is a great forum. First time I really looked into the forum was when I was on the hunt for info on how to replace the FDS-drive belt. I still haven't done it as I'm waiting for the new belt to arrive from Japan. Anyhow... The Famicom is a great system and I hope this site along with these forums will grow to be the ultimate Famicom-source on the internet.

Greetings to everyone! I'm Aki, from Finland and i'm 22.

Started playing about 15-16 years ago with the NES. I collect all things Nintendo, so i rarely buy games for other machines.

I also have mainly been on my own country's boards, so you probably would not have seen me elsewhere until now, although i do occasionally read foreign boards, but not post to them.

E: oh, and please do correct me if my English is bad, cause it's a bit rusty.  That way i'll learn.  :D

YEAH!  ;D
I have lots of videogames, 25+ different platforms, but
my beloved machine surely is the Famicom!
It is a pleasure to find this community, where I hope to
share knowledge and meet people!

Thank you!
I saw the profiles of two brazilian Famicom players here!
I know both of them! ipex and wimpy27!
They are friends of mine! (not so, I think, because they never told me about this community!)
About my website, I need time to translate all text to English and to put photos of all my
videogame items! To say the truth, I was unemployed and suffering the pain of selling
games of my own collection to survive! Thanks God I found a great new job!!

Hey Guys

I didn't really see an introduction section so I thought I'd post here.  I have a site called Japan-Games.com which has pictures and information about Japanese video games.  My job if a full time reseller.  I just posted some items in other threads.

If you have any questions or information I'd be happy to help.  I should have a link trade up and running with this site when I do my next site update in December/January (sorry for the delay!).

Thanks,
Eric

Hi, I'm Switchstance, from the south of Argentina. I'm MOD and Staff member from Argentine site Retrogaming, I've been playing Famicom games since I'm 7, I'm 24 now, I have a long long collection of videogames, including other systems (mostly 8-16bits), I've been done 6502 programming tutorials and writing / translating docs about Nintendo Entertainment system, and in 1998 I release the first argentine Emulator for the NES, not very good, I quit all that, and now I only do reviews, write technical articles and stuff. I just meet the site a long time ago searching for some labels (when I buy I usually try to find the original label to not buy a cheap pirate-copy) so I think it's a great resource of FAMICOM/FDS. I don't speak english very often, I work in a newspaper doing graphic design. So that's all. Regards guys, nice site, and excuse my lack of english-grammar.

Greetings everyone. Just introducing myself. I don't really collect Famicom stuff, but I do have about 40 carts. Maybe that does make me a collector?  :-)  Actually I collect NES, of which I have 759 I believe at last count, not counting variations. Just about all of them. Actually I found this site through NESWorld.

Got here because today I picked up 16 Famicom carts, including 6 Family Trainer carts and wanted to see if there were pics so I could ID which ones I have?

Probably won't hang out here much, but will pop in every now and again to check things out.

Welcome. Place to come for Famicom info. Don't have pics of much, but you can search the games list by IDs for some of the carts. Ask vealchop about Family Trainer. He's got almost all of them.

I'm pretty sure is not as different as buying famicom carts in Peru. In Peru when I used to live I wasl ike 7 at that time there were tons of famicom carts for sale around 5 soles around 2dollars in US money. mostly all of them were pirated tough. Pirate heaven I guess.

Hey, everybody. My name's Flash1087, Flash for short, or Ms. Jackson if you're nasty. I'll try to keep this brief.

I discovered Famicom World through a link on Lost Levels, in a thread discussing the special prize versions of Famicom Golf. It seemed like a fun enough place, so here I am! I'm looking forward to talking Famicom shop with everyone here.

And, if anyone's interested, my favorite genres of music are punk and ska, outside of video games I also play drums and collect comic books, and my favorite James Bond is Roger Moore.

Hello..
I'm from Germany and I collect retro stuff - especially Mega Drive(jap), Famicom and Gameboy(jap) games.
My first videogame was Super Mario Bros. on the NES so collecting Famicom games kind of brings back some childhood memories.

Sup everyone?  I totally forgot this place existed till today while looking at old topics at another forum I moderate.

I don't have much to do with the Famicom persay, but I'm a Nintendo/Sony Fanboy nonetheless!  My hobbies include playing cards, watching anime, playing video games, and studying (which I'm not too fond of...).  If you want to know more, just ask.

Oh, and I reside in the US as well.

I never end up posting in these things in forums, guess I will here though.
I'm Drew, from North Carolina, and my Famicom collection totals one cart. Well. I guess it could be two if you count the Gyromite board I have, but that game sucks so much its not worth counting. Anyway I got Double Dragon II recently, I would probably have more Famicom stuff if it wasn't so expensive on eBay. Right now I'm using a Gyromite adaptor through a Game Genie, works suprisingly well in a toaster. Hopefully I'll get an actual Famicom someday, but not now.

Uh... guess that's about it.

I don't really know. For one thing, there's probably less than 50 NES games I like/want to own. (Those that I do like I think are great, though.) But there's a lot of crap games on it, and with Famicom, sure there's games that also suck but there's also a lot more interesting stuff. Also, it's interesting to see what got changed between the Famicom (what I'd consider the "original") and the US versions.

Post by: 133MHz on June 22, 2007, 11:27:28 am
I'm 133MHz, I'm 18 years old and I live in Santiago, Chile. This is the second forum I join (the other being a computer & electronics repair forum in my native language) mainly because I love all things Famicom and I like the community here  ;) . I love electronics and computing (mainly the hardware part of it, not very good at programming besides some BASIC and Visual Basic), and so I love video games, especially the 8 and 16 bit consoles

My NES addiction began when I was a kid (playing at a friend's house) but never got one (I got a SNES on xmas '94 but I still liked the NES). I began collecting by late 1999-early 2000 when I got a second-hand NES (but in a very mint condition) for like ten bucks, with six games and a bunch of Famiclones the previous owner burnt when trying to plug them to an Atari power supply :P (got some pretty interesting 190 in 1 'board' from one of them) . Also internet access became cheap for the home on that time, so I got cable modem in my house and discovered tsr's games archive, and learned about the Famicom, the Disk System, SMB2j, etc. Then my obsession began  ;D .

Here in Chile the FC market is not as big as it is in Brazil, but today in almost any supermarket you find the usual stack of cheap Famiclones with the 10000000000000000000000000000 in 1 carts that only contain like 5 games. The real gems are found in obscure game stores (they usually have some good pirate Famicom stuff) and something that's called 'el mercado persa' (literally the persian market). It's like a giant flea market that sets up every weekend mornings on the seedier parts of town, that's where you get the real gems :P like my SMB2j cart, good multicarts (64 in 1 with ~55 games), converters, obscure and not-so-cheap Famiclones, good NES games, etc.

My Famicom collection is pretty modest (1 toaster NTSC NES w/ Famicom converter, controllers, Zapper, Game Genie, about 8 NES games and 8 FC games, most of them pirates, and several Famiclones I usually use for electronics experiments ;D). A Famicom or Disk System (or a Twin) is really way out of my financial reach (around here one Famicom was sold for like 300 bucks!) and, because of the shipping fees, EBay and importing is not a real option for me, but it is my dream to get a real Famicom one day. For now, I'll just continue my search for the real FC gems buried under all the Famiclone shit :P.

One of my latest projects is overclocking my NES. Got like seven TTL crystal clock generators from an old ISA video card a few days ago, from 16 to 44MHz! . Gotta try that soon  ;)

Long story short, I'm very happy to participate in this wonderful community, and I hope I sometime could help you guys with any Famicom related electronics problems/questions/etc, and also learn much more and have fun and make great friends around here. Also I'm going to upload pictures and TV captures of my weird pirates pretty soon. Well, see you later guys!

P.S: My intro is pretty long  ;D

I go fishing with my dad on his boat (The Aldebran II) A LOT in the bay area. Btw my Dad's name is Merlin, how cool is that? Anyway, I don't have a girlfriend yet, but I do have a lot of GirlFRIENDS. I love where I live and love what I do. Oh yeah, I also love Video Games! More recently I have gotten into the Famicom and all of it wonderfulness. I am still in the process of learning Japanese, but have been learning it for quite some while. Some random things I like include : surfing, flying kites, strolling on the boardwalk, girls (cheesy huh?) , doing ninja things, MS Paint (my avatar), hangliding, and making new friends.

I am........very sneaky........lets leave it at that......... Ok lets not leave it at that, that just sounds wrong. To clarify, my friends and I like to sneak up on each other in a very stealth like manner when one is unsuspecting. Then, we pull out our kunai and STRIKE! SHIIIIING SWOOOOSH FTH AHHHHHHHHH!! Ok not really. I mean if I did that I wouldn't have many friends  :'(

I haven't really introduced myself here.  I know a few of you from NESworld and NintendoAGE though. 

My name is Jason, from TN.  I am a NES collector mostly but go after a few other odds and ends.  I have never really cared to much about famicom stuff but it is starting to interest me a little and I am fighting the urge to collect it though.  I have been a gamer my whole life since I was like 4-5 but really started collecting about 5-6 years ago I guess.  I have been lurking here for a few weeks and posting a little, nice community here.

Here is my website is anyone wants to take a gander www.nationalgamedepot.zoomshare.com

Ive posted a view of replies  allready but i want to introduce my self now.

First i must say that my english is not perfect. 8)
Im har  and im living in the netherlands. Its a fine country, but only the climate of holland sucks.
In the winter no more iceskating and in the summer very few sun hours. But i can live with that  ;D
Im 20 years old and my hobbies are gaming, playing bassguitar, reading mangas, collect games and consoles, cats, dreaming and sleeping.
I like this forum because you are all retrogamers and thats very uncommon for me.

Well, I'm Roth.  I figured I'd post here as not to derail the Learning Japanese topic.

ummm... let's see, I'm old, I have a six year old son, and a wife.  I do the Mr. Mom thing.  ummm... hmmm... I like beer.  haha Damn, these things are so hard to think of when you actually have to do it.  Anyway, I had an old account on here, but I think it got deleted.  The username was "therealroth" but that was because of some old history that happened, but nothing substantial now.  Anyway, I honestly can't promise that I will post alot.  I just like how this site has come along (looks WAY better than it did when it first started), so I figured I should head on over and say heya.

I know some of the people on here from the past, so that's pretty cool.  It always helps to see a few familiar faces (looks at Manuel for one) haha  Anyway, hi freaks!

EDIT: hahahah I'm a famiclone!  I guess I'll think of myself as a NEX, since those things are so dern sexy!

Been collecting SFC stuff since '91, but only seriously since 1999..........I have only recently got into the original Famicom (after picking one up boxed and complete with 11 games for only £27 (around $50)
Having a great time trying to get some famicom stuff.........but just spent £200 ($400) on a SFC sharp tv, so the famicom stuff might have to wait for a little while 'till I save up some more funds!

Wow that's a while ago! I just started a little over 1.5 years ago it was funny how it started because I was talking to my brother one night about the Famicom pirate games I played a long time ago and he couldn't remember any of them but I did so I told him I was going to buy some of them for him to remember. Then a year and a half later I'm still here collecting when I have some extra cash although college takes most of my money, I can still get some games once in a while.

out of what i have so far....twin bee and super chinese are 2 of my favs.....aside from my mario 3, Zelda 1 and 2 and metroid..lol...there are like 5 games i got that i don't know what they are...3 came with my disk system and 2 with my famicom lot...(got both systems from Variety Recycle Nippon  ;D ) One of them is a written over disk of Kid Icarus..which i am looking for. But yeah...so out of what i know how to play it's Twin Bee for the win
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: JC on November 26, 2007, 08:14:41 pm
Cool, man. I've never gotten into Twin Bee, but I'll give it another whirl. As for collecting...the best advice -- if you've got a little bit of money to mess with -- is to buy game lots and see what you find. There are a bunch of games out there that are awesome but you'd never think to buy them.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

Well, that depends heavily on what games are in the lot.

You may want to watch 2 auctions, one with 100 games, the other with 82.

It's gotta be Salamander (Life Force) with the label ripped off.

And you can usually get loose cart lots for less than a $1 for each game, unless there's something rare thrown in. Loose disk lots sell for $2 to $3 per disk.

My names Mo and I have just recently got back into 8bit/16bit systems. The old games are much more fun and satisfying to play. I can't believe that after all these years my NES & Famicom have been neglected however at least I kept them  :)

I have just ordered a Famicom disk system (new in box), just started to collect the disk games. I was going to purchase an Xbox 360 but I find I can very easily get bored playing new gen games so I kept it old skool to my delight  ;D

Thanks to this informative site I have got loads of info, particularly regarding the disk system.

Hello everyone, I have been visiting this board for some time now but decided to be a member today (like a coulpe of minutes ago). I dont own a Famicom or Disk System but im not even close to be a FC/FDS noob.

Im planning to buy a "New Famicom" and a "Disk System" in a not to distant future, right now I only have two original FDS games (Akumajo Dracula & Dracula II) but have played the rest of the games on emulators.

This seems to be a nice board and I hope i´ll be here for long. Btw, im a 29yr old male from Sweden.

The Famicom got worldwide, trust me. If it wasn't the original console, the pirates did (like in olde USSR), or Brazil and the Gradiente thing. Everybody's got it my friend ;).

BTW I had a Chinese classmate and I asked him about the FC scene in China, and he told me both Famicoms and NESs were sold side to side back in the day, they got both! :o You know the Hong Kong Famicoms and Asian Version NESs right? Also I got some good multicarts from him :D.

I think that anyone on Earth who have seen a TV set, can relate to Super Mario Brothers or some other 1st gen game, no matter if it was a Famicom, or a NES, or a Dendy Junior, Phantom System, Polystation, and countless more. They're the 8 bits that unite us all ;D

Hello fellow Famicom fans!

I'm Chris and I have been an avid gamer since I bought an NES at a tag sale when I was in middle school in the mid 1990s for $5. The first NES game I got working at my house was Fisher Price: I Can Remember as it was the only game to actually work after a million tries.

Through the years I've collected many different systems although I never had an official Famicom until last week. I just need to get it working or find a working version.

Besides video games I spend my days doing computer repair work and system administration and telecom work.

I am fourteen years old, I use eBay a lot, and I just bought a Sharp Twin Famicom.

I have two(3) famicom carts, Super Mario Bros, Super Mario Bros 3, and Bug-tte Honey. I kinda ruined, Bug-tte Honey, though.

I want to know,though, what are some other cheap games that are worth playing?

Welcome! Check out the Famicom/FDS board for a bunch of different threads with lists of games (bests, etc.). Usually the ones worth playing are expensive, so it's hard to list fun ones that are cheap. Try SD Hero Soukessen. I think I'm the only person who mentions that as a cool game, but it's cheap and cool. :D

Hey, what up yall, I never introduced myself on here so I guess I will now.

My name's Ben, I'm 26, I live in Maryland at the moment even though I've lived in Boston, MA and Honolulu, HI in the recent past.  When I was a kid I played NES until I got a Genesis (and then my dad got rid of the NES! argh! I have gotten a couple replacements since).  I was never that good at NES games and I'm still not that great!  oh well!  Something about it keeps me coming back anyway.  I really like games with good graphics and an immersive atmosphere.  Ninja Gaiden, River City Ransom...

A little more about myself:
-I was in the us navy for 5 years and served on a submarine
-I like to draw, paint, play guitar and ride bicycles

Hi everybody!
My name is Simon and I live in Norway.
Had a NES when I was a kid and loved it. Bought a Famicom and some games when I was i Japan this January.
I'm facinated by the retro world. It was so cool to see all the game systems at Super Potato (or how you translate it).

Guess I should introduce myself since I've been perusing the site for 6 months or so. My name is Eric.

I'm a 29 y/o guy living in Portland, Oregon. I  guess it all started for me when I got a NES when I was 6 back in 1985. I didn't really play much other than 10 games back then. About  a year ago I was bored on a rainy day and went to a used store here in Portland and picked up a NES.  A few months later I was looking in a Goodwill and ran across a pirate system that looked like something that I saw on ebay. I didn't at first know for sure, but looked it up online later that night and saw it was a Famiclone. So, I went back and paid the $2.99 and bought it even though I had not a single famicom cart. I started looking into the Famicom online and here I am, 8 months later and have a real Famicom, Twin Famicom, 3D goggles, Family Trainer, and about 60 carts and 7 disks. It's for sure a strange obsession.

Umm, guess I should say something about muself--haha--about me... I speak fluent Spanish, work in the insurance industry, and have a background in political science, nutrition, and personal training.  I also own the Gamecube & N64.

Umm Hello... my name is Dan... and... I'm a Famicom Junkie.

I just got my first Famicom 2 weeks ago from toysonlehk on E-bay. It's a SHARP Twin Nintendo Famicom. The black and pink one "wish I would have waited for the green and black"  ::) My first games are Castlevania on disk, Super Mario 1 & 2 on disk, Zelda on disk but the disk is bad and will not play side B and finally Sky Destroyer on cart. Next for me I think is going to be the 3D System.

What really started my interest in the Famicom was when I saw the Disk system actually. It was just intriguing simple as that. I'm a member at Planet Virtual Boy and thought to myself "Hey there has to be a site with the same dedication this one has" and after a minuet of searching boom here I am on Famicom World. It was this site that actually convinced me to buy my system because I had absolutely no idea how much cool stuff was made for the Famicom. So Thank you to the site administrator and to all of you that are apart of this site and Thank you for getting another noob hooked!  ;)

You know, we had one female on here a long time ago. She didn't know what a Famicom was. Then, about a year and a half later, we had another one register. And for some reason -- I think legitimate -- the other admin (not naming names) banned her. It was kinda unfortunate. Haven't had another one around since. It caused quite the stir when she was banned.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: 133MHz on April 01, 2008, 05:25:00 pm
The only one I remember was seeking technical assistance, she was trying to repair her Famicom, but she suddenly disappeared after a few posts. Is her one of the two you're talking about, JC?
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: JC on April 01, 2008, 05:29:04 pm
Maybe. I don't recall the second one, other than that she was banned. It's possible there were three. I only remember the first two because something strange was up with each one.

My introduction....
Im a videogame enthusiast from the cold land of Sweden.....It seems that we have quite a few Nes/Famicom collectors up here......

I play more than I collect.... I dont really like NIB, cause I want to play my games instead of just keep them on a shelf....

I recently got a Sharp Twin famicom (black 500)... and that is the newest passion for me....
I have loads of different game systems.... Nes (mattel, usa,scn, av famicom, usa toploader, pal toploader, sharp twin famicom), nintendo wii, gbc, gba micro, nds, nds lite, n64 usa, snes pal, ps3 jap, master system, mega drive....and so on.... but its Nes/Famicom that i play and collect the most....

fu*k to write this feels cheesy...so i better stop now....


The rest is for me to know and you to find out!

I've been lurking for a while and finally decided to join. I only started collecting Famicom recently.. I have a Sharp Twin Famicom Disk System, about 60+ loose carts, 4 disks, and 100+ Super Fami carts (which I play on a SNES I popped the tabs out of- someday I will have a real Super Fami system<3- but for now it works just fine). I have been finding carts and such on Ebay, thru craigslist, and on the Nintendo Age forum (just a few)...  I am hoping to keep expanding my collection as money allows... it is so addicting!  ;D  I guess that is it?

Hey folks.

I was guided here to the Introduce Yourself forum by 133MHz, so here I am.
I have been a longtime collector of all sorts of console video games and systems. I discovered and purchased a console called the Retro Duo and was pleasantly suprised that I could play SFC games. I started combing ebay for SFC titles, and discovered the joy of import games. I decided to buy some of the highest reccommened titles (N64's Sin and Punishment, Bangioh, SFC'sRendering Ranger, Pop'n Twinbee, Flying Hero, etc.) Then I discovered all the awesome catalog of Famicom games. I think I have a little over twenty Famicom games so far. Some of my nicest fbuys are Holy Diver, Crisis Force, Splatterhouse, Kid Dracula, Joy Mecha Fight... picked up a few multicarts along the way, also.

I am also the proud dada of an almost-three year old girl and 7 month old boy. In a way, all the games I am collecting will be something I can share and enjoy with them as they grow up.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: manuel on June 06, 2008, 06:35:02 pm

Hey all, I've developed a recent interest in the Famicom and this site/board have been beyond helpful. I always thought the NES was the best system ever, and found out about all the great stuff I never got to play on the American system. I only have 2 Famicom carts at the moment, Devil World and Namco Star Wars. I'm considering getting a disk system, and an actual Famicom soo. For now I'm playing them on my top loading NES with a Gyromite converter.

I love gamming across all platforms, and while I wouldn't call myself a collector, I have 9 systems and around 250 games. I look forward to learning more about the awsome Famicom.

Welcome. There are a lot of NES collectors out there who don't realize how great (better?) the Famicom really is. Something like 500 more games were released for the Famicom than the NES. And some real gems, too.

Hello All,

In May I went to Japan because I have always been a game geek and it was the trip of my dreams, and when I came home, I brought a Famicom with me.

Currently I have about 60 cart games and 20 disk games, some CIB some not.  Picked up a famicom twin too (normal famicom looked bad on my TV, fuzzy on channel 95) .  I will post pics on the collection post in the near future.

I am a retro gamer from Buffalo NY, grew up with Odyssey II, Atari 5200, and NES.  Although I have PS3, Wii, X360, I still like my retro best.

Best system of all time is the Sega Saturn, NES/Famicom is #2.  So far my favorite Famicom only game is Goonies.

Anyone know anywhere to get import retro games in Buffalo/NYC?  I like store shopping more than eBay.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: JC on June 18, 2008, 09:12:33 pm
Welcome...I used to visit a retro store in NYC when my bro lived there, but the last time I was in the store it was moving to a new location. I don't even remember the name. It had a Disk System and a few FC pirate carts for sale.

Hello i am a FC collector from South Korea (also live in Sweden 6 month a year and 6 month home in korea) i have been playing famicom since i was child (since korea is closest neighbour to japan we also had FC system)  but start serious collecting for about 8 years ago but also i had to sell many of my carts by private reason. Now i have been catch up collecting again and i found this forum by accident but happy to be here.

Sorry for my bad English i more understand than i can write but i hope that you will understand me....If you want to ask anything about Korean FC collecting or anything else you are welcome to ask...Thats all for this time!
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: JC on June 28, 2008, 04:36:18 pm
Wow. From Korea. :)

I'd like to know everything about Korean Famicom gaming. I know there's Famicom in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and pirate FC in China and Thailand, but I didn't stop to think about Korea. So, did you get an official release of the Famicom? Were any games officially released there? It seems nearly all of the official games came out of Japan -- there weren't official releases elsewhere, but I have seen the official HK and Taiwanese Famicom. I also have a Baseball pulse line cart with Chinese writing (original from Nintendo) that came from HK. So, I'm guessing some carts were officially released in Hong Kong.

Oh, and welcome! :D

Yeah, the Korean NES was the Comboy. I used to search for it on eBay and eBay would redirect my search to "cowboy." It was annoying.

Post by: Sirdjorgo on June 28, 2008, 05:04:00 pm
Thank you very much :D

There was never an actual official release of the FC system in Korea but since Korea is the closest neighbour to Japan the FC system was inofficially released to the Korean market and it was that system regular people remember as the "8-bit system" since the well yes the comboy WAS released as an official licenced product from Nintendo but that was years later than the FC was released so if you ask any Korean they do not for sure remember the comboy system (also there was not very many games to that system if you se how many fc games there were out on that time, pretty many more).

There was not very much pirated multicarts in Korea (dont know why but i guess that also the fact that Japan is only three hours away from korea our market was kind of get mostly games from japan) or also bootlegs from original games.. But most of the games who are Korean is unofficial releases (not pirated) made by Koreans but there was also not pretty many and the games are very rare. Joykid also and some other famiclones were in market but they were just like any other crappy famiclones.

Many of the Korean videogame market have their own licenced products that came out in Japan such as the Samsung Saturn and Super Comboy and so on just for (hmm what you call it) legally seeing for the world in public =S (sorry i do not really know how to say in english)


I hope you understand what i writing now an if there is further questions on this just feel free to ask!

Edit: I give you this link to read some more about this about Comboy and some Korean comboy systems....It is not my site but it sure have some information in english language

No problems =)

That list is what i know not complete from that licensed NES games but there were absolutly not many as in the USA or Europe were released in Korea for the NES

Oh yes specially the Metal force cart is one very great game that i have in my collection, also the general son cart is also one that i own that is not very good game but it is based on a true Korean story who took part when Korea was a part of the Japanese empire...Actually if you go to Korea you can find in markets some unknown unlicensed famicom Korean carts (just to have some luck( an you will find sometimes very interesting games =)
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: JC on June 28, 2008, 07:32:29 pm
That's cool. It is very hard to buy games from Korea. It's one of the last untapped Famicom/NES markets, I think. It's easy to get stuff from other countries, but it's hard to get stuff from Korea. I've been lucky to find a few Korean games on Yahoo! Japan auctions.

Hey, My name is Kevin.  I am a gaming nut and am fairly proud of that.

I write for the website www.4colorrebellion.com

I also do videos for www.famicomdojo.com

Then of course there is my retro game store that I started with my good friend Alex 2 years ago: www.risingstuff.com

But enough links.  About me:

I have been living in Japan for the last 5 years.  In March I married a beautiful woman who can tolerate my gaming habits.

What else?  I don't know.  But I'd be happy to answer any questions.

Hey there!

Just wanted to say "hi" since I'm new... this seems like a pretty cool group of folk!  I've been checking out FW for the last week or so for some FDS info, since I'm finally getting one at some point in the next week or so, and I wanted to check out the forums, too!

Anyway, I've had a Famicom for a little while now, and I've been a pretty rabid Nintendo fan/collector for pretty much forever.  Hope to talk to you guys soon!

Are you anti-female, FJL? You lured Emily away as well.  I think your bad PR. :P


One day we'll find a female that actually knows what this site is about...one day, :P.


And over a year later... that day has come.

I'm Melly, and I'm from Australia- the country that seems to get shafted constantly when it comes to video games. I grew up with a NES and SNES and nothing else until a couple of years ago, so they were very much a big part of my gaming life (and have a lot of great memories attached to them!)

Not much else to say about me, I'm still pretty young, I work part time at a game store and I'll hopefully do a traineeship as a network admin next year. I spend my day playing video games and reading about video games, so this is a perfect forum for me :p

I'm here mostly to learn odd bits, make some friends and hear about some games that I ought to have played ;)

Hmm... That's all! I'm looking forward to getting to know you all :D

Hey, I'm Brent. I found this site about a week ago and it's helped me out alot. I  just bought a Twin and it's on it's way right now. I'm really interested in the Disk format and i'm starting a collection. I've been getting tired of the games coming out on my PS3 and what not so I started looking for a NES on ebay, saw some Famicom's and figured why not go for something really interesting. Here's what i've got coming soon.

System:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170243586638&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=007

Games:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=170244878282&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=007

I also have a copy of AKUMAJOU DRACULA (Disk/Loose), NAZO NO MURASAMEJOU (CIB), Argus(loose), and Tetris Bullet (looose) coming from toysonlinehk. 

I kinda went over the top for jsut starting out but I figured since i'm only a college student and work at Gamestop I should stock up on some games while I can because it will be a while before I can afford to expand my collection anymore.

So Hello again, it's good to meet all of you.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: JC on August 07, 2008, 04:13:52 pm
Welcome! The Disk System is an interesting way to start. I'd be kinda curious to know how many people start their Family Computer gaming with the Disk System instead of the Famicom.

For me it's a combination of liking vintage gaming and  liking weird, defunct, yet useful technology. The FDS fits the bill. I also collect Laserdiscs if that explains anything. It's only stuff that you can use though. If it's just going to sit there and look neat I might want it but I won't buy it.

Yeah, I'm a LaserDisc collector too.  Still can't figure out why.  The more obscure the better.  I bet on day I'll collect HD-DVDs for the same reason.  What a weird guy I am...

I know what you mean, I'll be buying them too and talking about how great of a format it really was even though i've always been pro blu ray myself. I haven't sunk to BetaMax yet though. I'm not that crazy of a collector.

Vikingo means Viking in Spanish (people in my town calls me that way 'cos i'm a wild wacky dude hehehe) and 70s is because i love 70's rock specially Led Zeppelin. I also play the guitar and sing.

Hey everyone, I'm Des, just moved back to Botswana, hoping to start a business within the next year or so. Also just bought a "FunStation" with the obligatory 9 999 999 in 1 that's just 5 games repeated. I had a flash of genius while playing "duck Hunt", I want to try hacking it so that everything fits in the gun  8). Later on, I want to try hacking the ROM image itself so I can put it on PC.

I've never done anything like this, but if Ben Heck can do it...

Hi everybody, I like to introduce myself here on this forum. I'm from the Netherlands and played on my NES when I was young. I've been born in 1982, so I like retro 8-bit classic and I realy respect them :)

I'm collecting Famicom games for 1 year now. Have a collection of about 50 games, loose, boxed, disks and NES games. I realy like the Japan versions of Metroid, Kid Icarus (savegames :)) and the USA only games like StarTropics II.

The system I play with is the Twin Famicom with turbo buttons (lazy I know ;), well sometimes) and I have a converter to play NES games with it. I have also a PAL Game Genie and a Gold Honey Bee.

I will post scans of my stuff soon, also to show the great combination of a JAP converter + Game Genie + NES game to play on this a Twin Famicom with cheats. I will try to test a JAP converter + Game Genie + Honey Bee + JAP game to cheat my Famicom games ;) (or someone likes to offer a JAP Game Genie I saw on this forum :))

I also have a database called collectorz.com with all my games (including scans), so maybe one day I will share it!

PS. Don't know if this is the right place/subtopic to introduce myself, but it's nice to meet ya all!

Hello everyone. I'm new here (as You see ;p). I'm from Poland. First of all - I just want to say sorry for my bad english :p I hope You can understand me.

I played a lot of Famicom games when i was young. Unfortunately i sold my console and all of  games (please don't kill me ;p), when I get my first PC. Shame on me :( (now i have to play on emulators, i've got my own website about nes/famicom emulation, but it's only in polish language ;p <thanks god>).

My favourite game is Mega Man 3 (i also like Summer Carnival'92 - Recca). Except old games i love music too (especially rock).

Maybe we should continue this discussion in the Japan thread.  :D

Figures It take me (3) posts before finding the "Introduce Yourself" thread.  I figured it was in the Famicom/FDS section for some reason, and not Off Topics.  Anyhoo, I found the site through a link an online friend of mine put up in a thread where I mentioned I'm looking for Dead Fox: Human Weapon.  He thought it be a good idea to join up over here and get some Famicom chitchat going with the rest of you, and of course see what might be available in the resident market place.  Anyhow... the name's Mike, I'm thirty years old and have been a die hard gamer since 1983.  Started off on a 6-Slot wood paneled Atari 2600 and have more or less owned every system (save the Bandai Playdia, FM Town Marty) released on both sides of the Pacific at some point.  I'm still more of an Arcade gamer over all else, and I currently own three upright cabs in my house which are IKARI III: The Rescue, RASTAN, and a Neo:Geo 2-SLOT.  The makings for an MX 5000 cab are in my walk in closet, but I have yet to put it together or power up the PCB of it.

Online I'll either be here (now), over at Neo-Geo.Com, OS-BMX.Com and a book forums to boot.  Basically I'm a *conversationalist* who just likes to meet and talk with ppl from all over the globe, usually about more than gaming, but it seems gaming is the common bond on the web.  In my professional life I'm a LV III (armed) Security Enforcement Officer, I still ride BMX and I love to tactical combat and cowboy action shoot.  I'm a voracious reader of any and all things, both non fiction and fiction alike, and will probably be gaming when the bombs fall [that's a joke BTW].  Not much else to say other than I'm glad to be here, and look forward to chatting it up with others in the Famicom community.  Only wish I'd have known about this site/community sooner is all.

I've been a lurker here for quite some time, but I'm starting to build my FC collection finally, so I thought it was time to get to know some folks around here.  My name is Jon, and I'm from Wisconsin.  I've been an NES collector for a number of years, and am fairly active on the nintendoage.com forums.  My collection so far is only a boxed Famicom and Disk System, but I have several games on their way to me now from Japan.  I'm a slow but steady collector.  I hope to learn a lot from you guys!

Wow, I have been a member for like a month and never saw this thread. :P
Anyway, I started my collection early this past summer and have around 30 Famicom games and 40 NES games, and a bunch of random accessories for each. I also have a N64, SNES, Gamecube, 5 gameboys, and Wii, (I like Nintendo) but I have been focusing most of my attention of the 8-bit consoles lately. My first console was my N64, and I have always been interested in the NES. One day, I decided it was time to get one. And I did. Then I saw the Famicom with all its white and redness and I had to get one of those too. And I did. I had lots 'O fun but I wanted to more about my Famicom than what was posted on Wikipedia. So here I was making my rounds on the internets one day and happened across this fine site and here I am! yay!
That's it...

I just started playing famicom 2 days ago(on the actual hardware), and it's way better than emulators. So far I've got SMB, Gradius, Star Soldier, and Mario Bros. I was born in December of '94.

Long time lurker, seldom poster. Quite new to the world of Famicom but absolutely loving it! Got around 20 games already and looking to expand...my current favs are Gradius and Splatterhouse Wanpaku Graffitit...oh and my game that uses the tap tap mat? I forget the name of it lol. I'm finding the Famicom is making me play games again instead of just collecting them

Anyhow, looking forward to speaking some Famicom with you all

Cheers

Hi! I'm Will... Well, you could probably tell from the name... My brother is Rogles, and I helped pay for our Famicom. I live in a small village in Michigan, where no one can tell the difference between Chinese and Japanese.  Nobody has heard of a Famicom, Super Famicom, or a Game and Watch, for that matter. We are introducing a new culture to Caledonia! :)

I joined in early December and just now decided to post here :P

I found this site through Google... and it was one of the best Google searches I ever had 8)

If I hadn't found this site...I wouldn't have a Famicom right now, I found out about a little site called Famicomshop.com and before I knew it, I was chatting it up with the owner via IM.

My current Famicom Collection:
CIB A/V Modded Famicom
Rockman 3
Devil World
Mario Open Golf
2 Doreamon games
A CIB unknown detective game

I will post pics of the unknown game, the Doreamon games and my A/V Modded Famicom in another thread, any help is appreciated!

Hello!

I knew this site from long ago, but it wasn't until today that I decided to join. I'm from Chile (same as 133Mhz, another member of FW, whom I met at www.retrogames.cl, a chilean collecting site) and been collecting nes stuff for some years. I'll try to share as much information as I can with all of you, and to learn the most I can from you too  ;).

Hi,

I'll introduce myself in this topic.

My name is Esgher, I'm 21 years old and I live in Holland/ The Netherlands.
I've been collecting Nintendo for a few years now, but I've only recently started collecting Famicom stuff.

If you're interested (and also if you're not!) I'll post my complete list of my collection, and afterwards some pics.




And first some pics of my collection (before I got my Famicom stuff!) Please note: The Wii is not on the pictures because it sits in another place.


Handhelds (excluding Gameboy Micro Famicom):

All handhelds together:

Total picture of boxes etc:

Total picture:

Then all of the prizes that I got in the weekend of my birthday! Basically the start of my Famicom collection.

Those are smudges, no scratches on my Famicom Micro, it is brand new!

And my latest addition to my collection (and the last one for a while also) the Famicom Robot including Block set!

Een Famicom Robot met Block set!

Matching serial numbers between manual and Robot!

So, that was basically who I am and what I have in terms of Nintendo.

Let me know what you guys think!
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: nintendodork on December 30, 2008, 05:24:57 pm
WOW Esgher!!  That is a great start!  That Family Robot and Stack Up can fetch a pretty penny on eBay or YHJ or whatever.  I have a Gameboy Micro like that....but I bought mine in a store, so it doesn't have that symbol on the back :(

Speaking of symbols, the FF on your Famicom's Family Computer label..... I think that means it's a newer model.  The Famicom on the box doesn't have it and neither does mine......I guess mines just old! :P

Keep collecting Esgher and stick around to chat!
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Esgher on December 31, 2008, 02:26:12 am
Thanks! And with "a great start" I presume you mean the famicom part of my collection?  :D
I'm also pretty proud of my factory sealed powerglove.

But about my famicom, what does "a newer version" exactly entail?

Nothing that you could see.  It has some very minor changes in the motherboard...but it doesn't affect gameplay no mater which kind you have.  So don't worry ;)

Post by: Trium Shockwave on January 28, 2009, 02:49:02 pm
There's no need to replace it unless it starts giving you problems. However, if you see any around for puchase, it's not a bad idea to buy them while you can.

I have belts regularly in my store for $12 each.  I am out currently, but have 5 more coming in the next 7-10 days.

They are pretty easy to replace, but I'd agree with Trium, buy them when you can, but don't replace it if it is working.

Thanks!

Hey everyone. I am brand new to the site.
Just wanted to say hello, and briefly introduce myself, as I see that as the courteous thing to do when signing up on a new forum. IF there are any Atariage members on here, I post over there too, but with a different screen name, as my AA account is quite old.

Pretty big fan of the Famicom, naturally, or why else would I be here. Just starting to get into collecting for it though. At the moment I only have about 8 games, though looking to up that number in the very near future.

I own a small handful of clones, and a second gen (black with red highlights) Sharp Twin Famicom. Though the Sharp doesn't get as much play time, since it is boxed, and in really nice shape.... it's more like one of those centerpieces of a collection that you have a way of being quite proud of. I also own an older Micro Genius clone. I own the only one I have ever found for sale :P I really like it too though, as it is one of those odd, interesting pieces of gaming history... a clone from before they starting using heavy NOACs. Different, but definitely neat. Got a couple N64 controller styles, and one of the Penguin clones with the Infrared controllers (actually a pretty good controller for a clone).

I have been playing games for about as long as I can recall, and collecting actively for about 6 years. This is my branch out into the non-domestic gaming sector though. Fun fun fun!

Good times all!

*sorry mods, it's early where I am at (well, for me), and I missed the introduction thread. I don't mean to burden you with my carelessness... but if you feel it appropriate, please move this post.

*Had to correct some typos. Yeah, sure felt early :P

Lol... AA = Atari Age. Though, some of us in there might need rehab... we're pretty addicted :P

Right now I have:
Daiku No Gensan
Akumajou Dracula Special
Tower of Druaga,
Devil World
Hokuto No Ken 2
Deep Dungeon
Labyrinth
Wizardry; Legacy of Llylgamyn
Dokuganryuu Masamune
111-in-1 pirate cart that came with my Penguin Famiclone.

I have many more lined up, and will hopefully have them by the middle of week after next.
I am always searching for more games to add (aren't we all?), and I seem to have a silly thing for pirate cosoles/clones. Don't ask me why, I can't explain that one. : P

Post by: shoggoth80 on February 14, 2009, 09:51:54 pm
Devil World ROCKS!
It's like Pac-Man but a step better in terms of difficulty and strategy due to the moving screen, and needing the bible to attack enemies. Of course, stage two is really funny...

Yeah, it's like something you'd see in one of those bad movies where the guy has to escape an "underworld"

"You must throw the bible into the Skull..box...thing in order to escape... and watch out for the moving screen.  That will kill you."

"What moving screen?"

He wouldn't have a clue lol

Hi everyone,great site by the way.

Well I have always been attracted to japanese games and consoles for as long as I can remember.

And now I have a Super Famicom,well its a pal snes case with a ntsc snes motherboard but it plays my super fami games just fine,I only have 4 games for now but Im picky lol

But I grew up with the nes and super nes and have alot of fond memories from that time.But this site is pretty cool so Im differently going to stick around.

Why a PAL SNES with a US board? Unless you live somewhere where PAL is the dominant format, this seems like a lot of effort. Easiest way to play SFC? Snap off your region tabs inside your console's case. Badda bing... instant SFC. That's what I did, and I have no regrets either. Yeah the SFC might look really cool... I just can't justify the price premium for essentially the same thing as what I have sitting right in my face here at home :P

All I've got in SF is:
Elfaria
Dragon Quest V
Dragon Quest VI
Shin Megami Tensei

Good times though, playing the games is what counts.

Hello, this is my first post and I thought I'd introduce myself.

I live in Japan and was in a "recycle" shop in Kitakyushu a few months ago when I found a complete Famicom in its original box for 1250 yen (guess thats about $12 US).  My wife had a Famicom when she was a kid in the 80s and I had an NES so I figured "why not, for nostalgia's sake". 

I've got a few shops in the neighborhood that sell Famicom games for 200 to 300 yen each so if anybody has any advice on which ones are good I'd appreciate it!

;D

Post by: manuel on February 20, 2009, 03:49:15 am
From your nickname I judge you're an English teacher, right? Welcome aboard.

That was a nice find and very cheap for a Famicom. Congrats on that.

For recommendations, just hit up the Famicom games section of the boards. There we have the top 25 games for example. All of those are good.
Look around a bit and you'll find lots and lots of recommendations.

I'll check out the recommendations.  I picked up "Lode Runner" a couple of days ago and have been enjoying that!

Post by: FamicomFreak on February 20, 2009, 11:52:46 pm
Welcome to the forum sensei! I hope you enjoy your stay!

As for games I would recommend Rockman and the Super Mario Bros series. Also pick up some RPGs like Dragon Quest which should be real cheap over there as well as Mother and Sweet Home. There are tons of good games for the Famicom but I guess in the end, it depends on which genre you like the most. Take care!

Post by: Drakon on March 08, 2009, 09:12:30 am
hi people.  I'm a retro system/game collector.  Basically I'm a huge hardware freak.  I can't stand the following:

1: emulation.  I can't stand emulation, to me it's nowhere near the same experience as playing on the actual hardware on a proper crt tv and sound system.

2: clones.  Although clones are quite a flattering form of hardware.  Playing on them is like playing on the cheapest possible hardware revision.  So they're more of just something to keep around to show that a system is so awesome it's worth cloning.

3: bad hardware revisions.  For example the sega genesis/megadrive model 2.  Sure it looks sexy, but the sound quality is terrible.  Apparently even the model 1 has different revisions that produce worse quality sound.

4: bad setups.  Hey let's play my 1983 system on a new hdtv hur hur hurrrrr.  Of course that's gonna make it look terrible.  These systems were designed to be played on a 4:3 crt television.  So that's what I play them on, one of the best crts I was able to come across.  And for sound....just a straight amplifier.....nothing funny.  Simple bass/treble/volume adjustment is all you should have.

Here's the things I love:

1: getting the most out of what your system can do.  As most people know by default a sega genesis or neo geo don't do s-video.  And if you're like me and live in the land of non-rgb tvs this creates a slight barrier.  So what's the solution?  I built a rgb to s-video circuit and oh damn, does my sega ever look sexy now.  I love getting the most out of what a system was intended to do.  Stuff like internally modding a system for picture/sound quality doesn't feel right.  But if there's a port on the back that pumps out rgb then just build yourself an adapter/converter.  And for sound?  stereo please.  I bought a neo geo mvs mv-1f board because I can plug it into a standard jamma rig, but I can ALSO get stereo sound out of it from pins on the side of the board.  Heavenly.

So because of that I collect the actual hardware to play these games.  I picked myself up an AV famicom a while back becuase....well.....there's just too many good games for that system....and it's just darn sexy.  Anyway here's the current lineup of expensive systems I own

2 super famicoms
AV famicom
japanese megadrive model 1 HAA 2510 (not the asian one)
gameboy advance sp model 1 (yes I love it lol)
slim ps2
ketsui arcade pcb
neo geo mvs mv-1f board
street fighter 2 world warrior 911101 cps1 arcade board (with kick harness)
currently borrowing a raiden dx arcade pcb from a friend

so what gets the most playtime?  In order:

1: ketsui
2: neo geo mvs.  I was surprised by this wonderful system because I never grew up with one or around anyone who had one.
3: super famicom
4: tie between my megadrive and AV famicom

And you may ask how do I play this arcade stuff?  Do I have a cab?  Nope.  Cabs have a few problems.

1: you're right infront of the screen.  I like being able to lay down on a couch or bed and relax while playing a game

2: cabs are expensive.  Period

3: cabs are stupidly heavy and take up a lot of space

so what do I use?  I built myself a supergun.  I can play arcade games on my bed comfortably.  The screen is huge and it looks better than most arcade screens.  And the sound is amplified so it sound better than most cabs.

Also I'm a cartridge nut.  CDs get scratched and then that's it no more game.  And cartridges have no loading time.  And I like how cartridges have limited space so it forces the game creators to be a little more creative than simply giving you a pre-rendered avi cutscene.

oh yeah here's the famicom games I play all the time

1: rockman 2
2: mario usa
3: sometimes mario 3 but the above two games keep stealing my attention

so yeah....that's me in a nutshell.  I love my famicom and play it almost daily.  Any classic game appreciator should own one of these boxes of fun

Hello there, brand new to the boards, but not new to Nintendo. Been a huge NES fan my whole life, have a collection of over 100 games, and just NOW, after a few years of owning a Generation (gag) Nex, I've finally procured an actual model 1, red and white, round button Famicom in top condition and working order.

Now that I have an actual working system, I really want to jump head-first adding Famicom games to my collection, but I want almost only Japan only games. As awesome as Super Mario Bros. 3 is, I own three copies for my NES, so I'd like to go after rarer, harder to find stuff that didn't make it over the Pacific.

So far, I have:

-Goonies
-Konami Wai Wai World
-Konami Wai Wai World 2
-Getsufuu Maaden
-Ganbare Goemon
-Ganbare Goemon 2
-Yume Penguin Monogatari
-Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2 (Kid Niki 2)
-Asmik-Kun Land
-Armadillo
-Layla

And either have already ordered or will eventually be getting:
-Devil World
-Astro Boy
-Boku Dracula Kun (Kid Dracula)
-Splatterhouse Wanpaku Graffiti
-Castlevania 3 (due to the sound chip)
-Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 3

Anything else "Only in Japan" I should be on the look-out for? I prefer games in the platformer / adventure genre, and less text-intensive. Thanks!

Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Tupin on March 09, 2009, 07:59:40 pm
I must recommend Choujin Sentai Jetman, even if you don't like the Power Rangers.

You do have some good stuff to start out with, I also suggest you pick up a Disk System, that will get you a lot more awesome options. If you don't mind having a US released game Gryzor (Contra) and Dragon Ball: Shenlong No Nazo (Dragon Power) are worth getting just to see the differences.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: namakubi on March 09, 2009, 08:03:45 pm
Yeah I was thinking about getting some titles that were released here just for the changes, that's why I'll pick up Castlevania 3 on the Famicom, I might get a disk system, but is there anything worth getting for the disk system that we didn't get in the U.S. on cart? Nazo No Murasame Jo is the only game that's Japanese exclusive that might push me over to getting a disk system. Anything else?
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: nintendodork on March 09, 2009, 08:06:06 pm

Haha yeah, I thought they were pricey, but then I compared their prices to a few pawn shops in the University District and they seemed fairly reasonable by comparison. At any rate, they're usually a last resort if I can't find what I'm looking for on ebay or amazon marketplace.

I own Crisis Force as well and can also recommend it. 

And to Nintendodork (you had asked about the Splaterhouse price)...Dunno about what he got his for of course, but I own a Splatterhouse CIB with stickers and all cards that I got from eBay very recently for $50. 

EDIT:  My Avatar may give away my recommendation for Holy Diver as well if you like Castlevania type games or are a fan of Dio.

Hey there, Namakubi from Seattle. Into video games, that's why I'm here, just stumbled upon this site since buying a Famicom and it seems like a great community, I have too many games to list but as for systems I own (in order of their release):

-Intellivison II
-Famicom
-NES (2)
-Genesis
-SNES (3)
-N64 (3)
-Dreamcast (2)
-PS2
-Gamecube
-Xbox
-Wii

Can't wait to explore this site more, I may be up for submitting some Famicom reviews / images for the website as well.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: namakubi on March 09, 2009, 09:35:54 pm
Yeah I've been keeping my eye out for Holy Diver (and HOLY CRAP I had NO IDEA it was based on the Dio song, I assumed it was just a crazy engrish title that could get them in legal trouble in the Western hemisphere), and haven't seen it pop up anywhere, it seems really rare. If you know anywhere I could find it, a link would be much appreciated.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Medisinyl on March 09, 2009, 09:46:14 pm
I know I saw it somewhere for fairly cheap loose recently (I got mine CIB for ~$50 almost a year ago).  I searched a few of the main sites a moment ago and I may not have searched the right one that I saw it on or it sold already.  It is rather rare I believe. 

EDIT:  The character in the game is dressed like Dio in his Holy Diver music video, though the actual character name is Ranay I believe, which is rather close to "Ronnie."  It seems obvious that the character is based in Dio.  Dio is my second favorite artist, so I was rather thrilled to discover this game, and the Castlevania look only added to it.

Hahaha omg, yeah, if you shop at Pink Godzilla or Al's you are getting ripped off big time. So long as you know the prices of everything you can once in awhile get good deals, but usually it's better to buy online. I use risingstuff.com almost exclusively, tho famicomshop.com has good deals at times and they're shipping is usually cheaper since they're in the US. As far as showing support to import stores... Pink Godzilla recently expanded, they seem to be doing just fine w/o my money. Once in awhile they have a deal (or a price that's compare to online), and those are the times I buy from them. But 9 times out of 10 they are a LOT more expensive than online.

"They're pretty great. A little pricey..."

They're ok. For someplace halfway local, they're seletion of imports isn't too bad. A little pricey? That is not how I would put it. I like the place, but do selective shopping there, and only on rarer occasions. Mosts stuff there is priced at more of a collector premium, so judicious purchasing is required.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Rob64 on March 10, 2009, 10:22:03 am
I actually consider Japan Game Stock to be a great store to get stuff but you got to have the money to afford it because their shipping fees can murder you if you live in America.

That being said, my dad did get good deals out of them, including one of the last boxed famicoms they had in the past christmas season. If you can get a good deal out of them, it's great because of the variety and quantity of the stuff they have is great.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

Don't think it would be a good idea to get a system from Japan Game Stock, their shipping costs as much as the item.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

Drakon,
I agree mostly with your standpoint on emulation...
save for a few small exceptions :P MAME... I cannot collect arcade machines, due to budget constraints and space issues. So, to me there is absolutely no harm in emulating arcade games. I will occasionally emulate something that I don't own, or when I want a quick fix and don't want to pull my machines out of their boxes. Used to have emulators on my laptop for SMS, NES, and SNES on the go. It's not all bad.
BUT, I do advocate original hardware and carts/disks whenever possible.

In terms of clones... I think they are fun to collect... the illegitimate famicom world is large and interesting... and often downright strange. Make it goofy fun.

I can tell you are very passionate about the hobby. Good goin'! Need more people like you around to help keep it healthy. I think there are many of us on here who are player/collectors. I believe I fall into that category as well. Great pastime!

I used to agree with you on mame.  Then I built a supergun.  But I fully understand pcb collecting to be a little bit too much for most people.  Even building a supergun was expensive.  And pcbs are expensive and take up huge amounts of space.  Yeah clones are fun to collect but not to play on.  It's hard to find people who appreciate what I do.  But I don't care so much because I do it for the fact that I love playing these games and on the original hardware gives such an amazing experience.  And yeah I use emulation to test out games that you can't rent anywhere.  I used emulation heavily in the 90s when I was a teenager because I couldn't use ebay at the time and it was hard to come across these games in stores.  Now that I'm living on my own and work full time (decent income) and have credit cards etc buying the original stuff is a great thing to do.  It supports the community and I get an experience far better than any emulation or clone could ever offer

oh yeah I forgot to mention in my introduction a couple of things.

1: I'm currently 28 years old
2: I became a gamer because of the NES.  Before a friend lent me his NES with megaman 2 when I was 9 years old I wasn't into video games.

Hi! I'm Max, 13 years old and I love Japan and Nintendo!
Fav Game companies are:

1: Nintendo
2: Konami
3: Capcom
4: Taito
5: Atari:P (The old one, not the time warner bros. bought them)

My hobbys: Games, Japan (all stuff:P), Nintendo (A hobby? Well, I love it to search everything about Nintendo:P), collect all Nintendo-related things (The Wonderswan too:P) and chess.

My collection isnt that big yet... I'm planning to buy a Famicom Disk System soon. A game and watch game should be awesome too! So... I just bought a famicom. I always thought that thing was uberbig, but its really little and ultra light :o

Consoles I own: NES, Famicom, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Commodore Amiga...

Handhelds I own: Gameboy Pocket, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DS Lite... And some Philips thing that my father gave me... The handheld wasnt released cause it was too expensive too make or anything like that... I have two of them... Do you think they are rare?:P

Favourite Game-related people:

1.Shigeru Miyamoto AND Gunpei Yokoi (or Gumpei Yokoi:P)
2.Hiroshi Yamauchi
3.Masahiro Sakurai
4.Fusajiro Yamauchi (Not really game related, but without him Nintendo wouldnt exist, so...:P)
5.Satoru Iwata

Hope you know enough of me!:D

Hi, I'm new here. Been lurking for a little while, lol. I recently started collecting Famicom games. I am working on getting ahold of the classics first thanks to cool online shops like Rising Stuff and The Famicom Shop.

I wanted a forum to check up on for some information about Famicom and well, this was the first site that google brought up. XD

Hello, all.
I joined here about a year ago, but have only recently been posting much. My love of my Famicom is but one facet of my eclectic electronic tastes. If you want to talk about LaserDiscs or the Sega Nomad, look me up. I love 'em both.

My story is a short one: I recieved a Super Nintendo for Christmas in 1996
(yes, I'm that old) and ever since then I've been collecting video games like the obsessive nerd that I am.

I look forward to many interesting threads here.  :)
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

Laserdisc is totally fun. I have a modest collection of like 6 titles though.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

I also have a total of 4 Laserdisks, but no player to watch them.  :-\

Probably not since they're analog, but that means that they're subject to color encoding/frame rate incompatibilities.

Hey everyone, I'm new to these forums but Ive been getting info from them for a little while. I found this place looking for info to AV mod my famicom a few months ago (my first imported system  ;D). Nothing beats playing the old games on their original hardware, but that doesnt mean we cant spruce them up a bit, right? My famicom is AV modded, the controllers are rewired with gamecube extension cables so i can add as much length as i need (the ~3 foot standard length wasnt cutting it). I'm working on an NES zapper adapter, and at some point I will hopefully be able to get fdsloadr working, and Famicom World is a great place for help and info :).
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: LocalToast on April 19, 2009, 01:07:25 pm
I guess I kind of just started posting randomly, completely missing this thread.

Uh, I like video games. Sometimes I like learning about them more than I play 'em, which is kind of silly, but it's fun to do. As far as systems go I've got plenty. I mostly play on PC and DS, but after educating myself in the field of the Famicom/NES, my interest is definitely piqued. Metroid and Starfox are my favorite series, and my favorite genres are platforming, action/adventure, shooters (FPS, arcade-y), and racing (not realistic games, but like Excitebike, Mario Kart, F-Zero, or Burnout). I was a pretty big Nintendo fanboy up until recently, when Nintendo changed a lot. I still love the old stuff, but the Wii doesn't interest me much. The DS and DSi have definitely proven their worth to me, though. :)

I've got a few profiles on other sites such as Last.fm (http://www.last.fm/user/AparoidX) or YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/aparoidx), if by chance you're wondering what kinda stuff I'm into. I also maintain a subdomain every now and then.

So this is pretty much an awesome site. I didn't expect to find so many people that loved the Famicom this much, and I probably would have been in the dark about finding where to buy stuff if I hadn't found this. By the way, Famicom World is the 3rd result (after 2 wikipedia entries) on a Google search (http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Famicom), so I'd say at least the main homepage has gained much popularity. Anyway, I'm really glad I found here and I think I'll be staying a while.

hi, i'm kira. recently i'm into gundam model kits and old school nintendo systems.
since i'm a Nintendo DS fan too, i have 3 Nintendo DS's.
sometimes i love to doodel with the Picro-Chat program that's installed in the ds.
and i have a famicom, but somehow i got it in a flea-market, and i'm not sure if it works because i don't have
ether the AV cord or the power cord. so i guess i'll just put in my room as display.

i hope i can learn more thing about this famicom system from this site!


Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: manuel on April 21, 2009, 06:22:08 pm
Welcome kira.

You should definitely try to get cords for your system and play it if possible. It's too good to only use it for display.  :)
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: FamicomFreak on May 12, 2009, 06:15:20 pm
Welcome kirayamato! You have you show a photo of your famicom to see if it's a clone or original and we can probably help you find the cables to hook it up. I think 133mhz can take care of that.

I've made a few posts here so I decided to introduce myself. My real name is Ian and I am a 22 year old college student from New York. I am currently majoring in literature and as a hobby I like to play video games, watch movies, listen to music, read and write as well play instruments. I started playing video games when my dad bought me a NES for my 3rd birthday and I have been a die-hard gamer ever since. Me and my dad together own almost every system that was released in the US, even the flops like Jaguar and CD-i. I myself just recently bought a Super Famicom, which I love with all my heart! My love for video games anime and manga has led me to study Japanese for 5 years on a amateur basis because the best stuff is either only released in Japan or is butchered by lazy translators in the English translation. But I hope to begin to really study Nihongo at the next school that I will be attending for my Bachelors Degree. Hopefully one day I will go to Japan, since I'm pretty much obsessed with anything Japanese (cartoons, manga, games, language, customs, mythology, philosophy, history, music). Hello to everyone and I hope that we can exchange some ideas and maybe some games as well!  8)

The ahhs in my name stands for Arlington Heights High School, the HS I went to. I have a cat named Oreo, who is my pride and joy. I'm currently between jobs. I have an unmodded original Famicom, and I have a Black and Red Twin Famicom coming in the next couple of days. I've recently bought a mint copy of New Ghostbusters 2 from Feather Pluck on Ebay. Great guy, as i'm sure you all know. (I wonder why he hasn't posted lately?) I have a good selection of games, and growing. I just received a mint copy of Super Mario Bros. from Japan for 7 bucks, and sometime at the end of the month, i'll be getting the wholesale lot that I won from ebay.

Hey UglyJoe, This site is for retro gaming I'd assume?
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: UglyJoe on September 13, 2009, 11:22:33 am
Yes, for the Famicom, specifically.  We talk about other games too, though (in the Other Gaming board).

Hm, maybe I should have posted here first.
Anyways, Hi everyone. The game consoles I don't have are the Super Famicom and the Virtual Boy. I play Team Fortress 2 quite often, and I think ROB is an awesome accessory, no matter how many people think it's useless. It sure does suck up the battery power though...

It's a bit late to introduce myself, but anyway.

I'm 19 20 (omg, preferred 19 somehow, lol), I study and play retro games on the consoles not emulators. I collect retro gaming consoles/games, and sell what isn't needed (ie if I won't need at all).

I'm collecting Xbox demo discs, they're pretty cool (imo), you get to play demos, read reviews, see other people's video gameplays and trailers. It's kinda pointless collecting demo discs but I like them.

I found this site while I was searching for some info about the Famicom A/V mod.

I'm a 23 year old guy from Sweden. I grew up with the NES and I've had several since then but for some reason I always end up selling them.
Hope the same won't happen with my new Famicom and FDS :)

A big collection isnt really needed, I have been collecting Famicom games  for years and have only got 28 games including the new ones I order from Vash when they eventually come in the mail.

What matters is liking the games you buy, I have bought many and sold many. I have sold around 12-18 Famicom games because they simply werent what I wanted to play.

Hello folks! I've been lurking this site for the past week or so trying to learn what I can about the Famicom and its myriad wonders, and I figured it was about time I registered and started to participate. I don't currently have a Famicom (or even an NES), but I've been playing a few ROMs here and there to see what interests me. It may be a while until I can afford to dive into the FC the way I'd like to since I'm unemployed and sick at the moment, but I eagerly await being able to check out the games I've been trying on real hardware.

I've only gotten interested in retro gaming specifically in the past year or so, although I've always liked video games and some of my earliest memories with them are with 8-bit systems. Anyway, I hope I can contribute to the community, or at least buy some neat stuff from you guys!

Hi guys

My name is Mason and I am from South Carolina in the states. I am 31 and am married with 2 kids. I have been collecting NES since '96, completing the licensed set last year. A while back I got an AV Famicom with 4 games and just 2 days ago I ordered a CIB disk system to go with it. I am not planning on completing the Famicom set , but want to get the titles that weren't released in the states or have major differences ( like castlevania 3, Star Wars). I might try to pick up some titles from the BST forum.

I have been lurking for a while, and like the community. I am sure I will fit in nicely here.   ;D

If you like, Here is my YouTube page where I talk games or see part of my collection:

Hello, everyone, I'm docmarionum1 - I'd say call me doc but it looks like you already have one of those.  I've been collecting older video game stuff since I was pretty young, but then again I'm not too old, so it hasn't been that long.  I'm a pretty casual collector, although I'd love to grow my collection (If only I had the time and money...).

(Random) fact about myself: I'm no good at introductions.

Post by: simonsko on July 20, 2010, 11:17:40 am
I'm Simon from Sweden. I'm 15 years old (Soon to turn 16) and in one way or another, I grew up with the Famicom.

On the very first Christmas of Y2K, I was gifted a Mega Joy which was sold by mail-order back then. For those who don't know it, it's a Famiclone with around 60 built-in games. It also lacked a cartridge port and 2nd controller input, mainly because the system was shaped as an N64 controller.

Back to the story now! That one Mega Joy lasted for around three years, when it suddenly broke. It was around the same time I moved to the house where I live in now.

Within a few months I was gifted yet another Famiclone - the Mega Racer. Unlike the Mega Joy, it's shaped like a steering-wheel, had a cartridge port (The 60-pin one) and came with accessories. Like the Mega Joy, it had around 60 built-in games, but rather than going to game 1 after game 6X, it instead continued in an eternal loop.
This system is still in possession by me. The chips inside are working just fine, but your thumb will be broken before you can make the character on the screen go to the left.

At my 11th birthday, I got another Mega Joy, which only lasted a couple of hours. >:(

When I got Internet connection in August of 2006, I was introduced to the Nintendo Entertainment System after Googling Mega Joy on the Internet. Since that day, I was craving for an NES, until my dad bought me one along with the game Super Mario Brothers.

Since then, I've slowly been collecting games and met other players through forums and an annual video game convention called Retro Gathering, which I've been attending since 2008.

In the meantime, I've been playing PC games. In January of 2009, I expanded my collecting to the XBOX.

That pretty much wraps up my history. I hope I'll have a good time here at Famicomworld. :)

Hi everyone (And thanks MasterDisk for guiding me to this thread)

Name is Sung ryong. I was recommended to this forum by a friend of mine for a pretty long time ago. I come from South Korea but for about a year i am living abroad. I mainly collect pirates (and mainly JY ones) and other things obscure stuff that is interests me. I am very nostalgic and this is why my big interest of these kind of games and mainly pirates started since when i grew up in the early 90s, these games were hot and very cheap. So for me, it is both something personal, interesting and very special.

Best regards! :)

Thank you MD! I replied the PM right after i wrote in this thread. I have read some of your posts and i am really impressed by your knowledge about these kind of games. And i am very happy to see that there are other real enthusiasts when it comes to pirate and unlicensed games.

About Jjaehee. I absolutely know who he is, even if i do not know him personal that well. But he has a really impressive collection i must say.

Sungryong , I remember the day I saw your name on the boards, I actually was thinking you were MD's friend and were going to post a topic in the Selling forums for tons of JY games, so I was eying the forum for about an hour  :D

Cool to have someone else who has a personal appreciation for pirates. I guess JY pirates must have been more popular in Korea than Taiwan afterall. I thought Jjaeheee was the only one from Korea who cared about them hehe.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Sungryong on August 19, 2010, 06:52:57 am
Haha i see. I am sorry if i spoiled your expectations  ;). But in the future though, i will eventually list some games for sale/trade, i am usually collecting mostly of all the JY carts that i have been able to. But mainly, i am looking for the Korean releases. And if i come over a Korean release of a game, wich i eventually already have in TW/Intl region for example. Then i usually sell/trade the foreign cart away  :)

Actually, in Korea, there exists some collectors of JY. But mainly, it is people who are interested in the gaming scene over-all who also have a little taste for these games. But real  "die-hard" collectors of JY games are rare even if some still exists. Just like in TW i assume.

hey everyone just figured id introduce myself... i came here for help with with fds and i was lucky enough to get it up and running thanks to this forum. my name is ryan and im an avid collector of all video game related stuff. i got 78 systems. And entire complete pc engine collection and an arcade from japan... i was lucky to find my fds setup both boxed and complete for a great deal... this is the place to be for anything fds related and feel right at home.... Thanks for the hospitality...
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

Welcome! Sounds like an awesome collection. Since you're interested in both PC Engine & FDS, you should pick up a MGD1 with the PC Engine interface. Then you can use it for PC Engine backups and dumping & writing FDS disks.  ;)

Hi. I've been here for quite sometime. But I registered just now, looking for friends?  ;D

Actually, I've been searching for a Sharp Twin Famicom service manual and this has been one of the sites that I looked for... So far, I haven't seen one yet but I'm hoping I could find one or somebody here can help me (this is a Famicom forum after all...). The one I just bought doesn't seem to work and my brother said its a regulator problem or something, he could fix it if he had the manual... I dunno with him... So there. Sorry bout that.

Anyway, off-topic--Saying hi to you all! Hope I could gain friends here.... xD

Welcome! Hope you stick around!

As for looking for a service manual, good luck. I've never seen one. If it's just the (voltage?) regulator you're taking about, it's a common 7805. Feel free to post specifics of the problem in the Technical Repair thread to get some help. I bet it ends up being a quick, easy fix. :)

Hi, everyone!  :D

I'm Chris, and I just registered here a moment ago!  I've always had a love for Japanese games and systems.  I'm pretty much a newbie when it comes to Famicom /NES collecting, though I've been playing and collecting Super Famicom stuff for years.  I stumbled upon this site a while ago while searching for Famicom-related stuff, and I'm amazed at how much everyone here knows about the Famicom!

As for my collection, I do have an NES and some games for it, but sadly no Famicom (yet!) and only one Famicom game (Lagrange Point, which I bought so I could play it and listen to the awesome soundtrack!)  Right now I'm thinking of getting my first Famicom (preferably the AV Famicom!) and some more games so my Lagrange Point cart won't be sad and lonely all by itself!  ;D

I'm hoping to have a great time here!

Hello!

My name is Jim - I'm 28 and I live in the suburbs of Chicago. I am a classic video game enthusiast and have been collecting on and off for about 10 years or so. In my classic game room alone I've got a Atari 2600, Colecovision, Atari 7800, NES, SNES versions 1 and 2, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega Dreamcast, and the latest addition is a Sharp Twin Famicom A505 (currently on the fritz).
I'm hoping to add more to my collection as time goes by and have some fun on this site.

I suppose I should say hi on this thread too. I've been around for about a week. I don't remember how I stumbled on it, but this forum is a rare find. You guys are very nice, helpful, and you're all interested in topics I find incredibly interesting. I've been looking for a place where people are interested in all things 8 bit Nintendo and also interested and knowledgeable about pirate cartridges and backup units.

I've been a NES player since I was very young. Before that I played games on the Texas Instruments 99/4a and the Atari 5200 (My first console.) After the SNES and the disappointment of the Virtual Boy, I got out of console gaming until getting a PS2 only 4 or 5 years ago; I have to admit I was turned off mainly by the focus on the primitive 3D graphics of the Playstation/N64/Saturn generation. In my own personal opinion, I felt like they should have focused on 2D games with 3D effects added on while waiting for the technology to mature. Anyway, that's just my personal opinion, and I respect it if others don't share it! I live currently in the Southwestern US in the Sonoran Desert, and I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. I also have a habit of writing too much when I'm making posts, so uh, bear with me.

Thanks for being here!

Welcome! But your name isn't really "Mind Energy" sic, now is it?   :P

QuoteMind Energy is a useful concept that helps to explain the interaction between volition (or "willpower") and feelings.


EDIT: Added sic
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: inergy on November 11, 2010, 04:12:47 pm
yeah, my name isnt "Mind Energy" my name is "mynd inergy" well, that's my MC name anyway.  As for, the name on my birth certificate, I don't honestly consider that my true name.  I never really thought the conventional system of choosing your childrens name before they have done/said anything really represents the individual.  I still though, go by this name, regardless though--I always held this in the back of my mynd.  I always felt that all those names that everyone shares are extremely unoriginal and hope to see a planet one day where we can value the indivual as much as possible.  So uh, yeah my name is mynd inergy, or whatever I would want it to be, because of all things--what you call yourself strongly defines who you are
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: ericj on November 11, 2010, 04:54:50 pm
If you feel that strongly about it, you can legally change your name.

I personally believe that actions and peoples' perception more strongly define who one is as an individual than a name does. Names associate us with others with the same surname and speak to a heritage, culture, or country of origin. Changing that is in essence deleting part of one's identity and heritage.

How I view someone saying:
Quote from: inergy on November 11, 2010, 03:52:54 pmHello everyone, my name is inergy.  My full name is mynd inergy for those who might care.
is that that person is a bit egotistical, self-absorbed, and arrogant.  I assume you put it out there so people would get an idea of who you are, or maybe look you up as an artist. So I wanted to explain how I perceived it, which is, I'm sure, not how you intended it to be taken.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: inergy on November 11, 2010, 07:13:30 pm
Of course, I don't want to be percieved as self abosrbed, egotistical and arrogant. Infact, all of those human features are things I strive towards removing from myself and others around me.  I feel as though I work for the benefit of the fellow humans I share this land with, not for myself.  That of course, is under the judgement of those who percieve my actions though.  So yeah, I may one day legally change my name, but the name "mynd inergy" is not a name that I feel represents me, it represents everyone.  Particuarily it represents the subject matter of my lyrics and the amazing potentional all of our "mynd's" hold as humans.  True, our name's say alot about our genetic heritage, but in many ways names, languages, borders, religions and seperate ways of thinking all just fuel to our planets seperationism.  I hope to see a world one day when we can get past thing man made differances and see that were all here, together, sharing this planet, learning, together. Im glad to see the level upon which you read into my introduction because that says alot about you, it's always great to see fellow humans critically thinking.  I'll definately make sure to shoot you my album when it's finished, hopefully you can appreciate true lyricism, unlike the many blinded people who believe music is only as good as how hypnotizing the beat is.  Thanks you for also showing me that informing article, it was a very great read

Thanks Gremlin. Gremlin's been very helpful at answering my questions and I appreciate it. I timed my joining with getting my Twin Famicom so I'm really just a beginner. I learned some things through reading online and I've been looking forward to it for a while. The last time I almost bought one was when I was trying to decide either a PowerPak or a Twin Famicom. I figured the PowerPak was destiny because they tend to run out of them often and I checked the page when I was trying to make my decision and I got the PowerPak. No regrets though, I think the PowerPak whetted my appetite, but at the same time it sort of overwhelmed me - it's sort of confusing to just have the entire library of games available on one cartridge. You just don't know what to pick. It makes going through various cartridges and tracking things down seem more appealing. I'm also really looking forward to trying every disk system game I can get my hands on.

Welcome VGMStudios,

I have only ever played original Metroid on NES and Metroid II on Gameboy, so I have not much information on the videogames but I am sure we all would enjoy seeing pictures of your collection.

Its also very cool that you mod consoles, other then Wii what else do you mod?

I really hope you enjoy your stay here, and feel free to ask any questions about Famicom you can think of within reason.

Post by: VGMStudios on November 17, 2010, 04:46:22 am
Thanks for the warm wishes The Uninvited Gremlin. You are the only one that welcomed me here. :)

The first 2 Metroid games can be tough for beginners they seem to get easier after 2.
Super Metroid is my favorite game. You should try it and Zero Mission.
I also customized my PC. I cut out the Samus symbol onto the side of the case and Samus on top. Took me 2 years to do. I have pictures if you are interested.

I also can customize other consoles but no one has ever wanted me to, so I have nothing to show for those. Only Wii's ATM.

If you would like to see my collection, please PM me.
I am all too new to the Famicom scene so if I ever think of anything I will be sure to ask.

Metroid II is especially hard.

I can understand not beating Metroid I.  I still haven't really played it from beginning to end.  I tend to jump around from place to place.  I recommend using the NARPAS SWORD password or Game Genie, with all items you need & beat it from there.

As for Metroid II, yeah - that's a tough one.  It was a bit frustrating for me, getting lost in the many reused areas.  But this game is linear - if you keep playing it, you'll beat it eventually.  What took me a while to understand was the that the "tunnel area" is like a main lobby.  You have to keep going back to it every time the "water" subsides.

If you are wondering why the top of Samus is dark, it because my PSU was in the way. So it block the light from going through.
I have since updated my Tower so I still need to transfer these to the new PC tower.

Good evening everyone!

I've been registered for awhile but haven't been very active in the forums yet. I'm 30 years old and come from Norway. I used to be a game programmer but left it
to study medicine instead. I started gaming on the NES in 1987 and have been a big nintendo fan since. I'm mainly collecting famicom and super famicom games (though some times i need to get the American counter parts since some famicom games are just too expensive and hard to come by =) This forum seems great, and love that it's famicom only, most collectors i meet in Norway usually only collect the SCN versions of nes and snes (who can bare 50hz gaming on the retro consoles.. i just don't understand) =).

Glad to meet you all! =)

Hello pepoles (sic) and I am some bloke that owns a Famiclone and a few cartridges for it, mostly pirated. I am 18 and a resident in England. I have a couple of Youtube accounts and I sometimes buy pirated Famicom carts from various sources because I can. :)

I'm neoking2002_neo, the same exact one from Neopets.
You may recognize me as Neomysterion from The Retro Gamers 2, MagneticDestroyerX3 from RetroJunk, and The Plushie Ultimatum from Jellyneo Forums.
I hope you guys don't mind old-school NES fans here at Famicom World. :D

I actually like to collect NES games and stuff (among stuff for other Nintendo systems) back at home (including a few seldom-seen titles). I haven't ever touched a Famicom in my life, but the NES is close enough for me.

If you know me from a different forum, let me know, tthanks! :D

Hello everyone!

Been lurking a lot in this forum for quite some time now and I thought I'd finally post something here too.  ;D

The name's Benc and I'm from Brunei. I've been interested in the Nintendo Famicom/NES since I never owned an 8-bit gaming console before (I grew up with the Sega MegaDrive), and I really love the Japanese gaming culture. Finally bought an AV-modded Famicom and from there I started my small Famicom collection. I'm also a big fan of chiptune music and the Nintendo GameBoy (which I also collect). My love for retro-games is driven by the fact that there are not so many people in my country who are into old-school video-gaming, and so I think I'm one of the few :)

Yeah, we're just a small country so nobody knows a lot about us ;D

Sadly game piracy is a common thing here, many people buying modded Xboxes since pirated games are really really cheap (for just a few bucks). However there is a collecting community for PS3 owners, those who collect, swap and trade games with each other.

"Xboxes" you mean Xbox 1?

When it's unlocked wow, it's completely a new world, emulators, backup manager, media centre support, OS available too.

I don't pirate my consoles any more, I did it to my PSP which I don't own any more, but that is long gone.

When you own the legit copy of a game, it feels worthy of completing but a digital/pirate copy just not the same feeling.

Hello everyone,

I suppose it is time for an introdocution.

I come from Sweden. Found this forum through a Google search.

My main interest is in Japanese Game Boy games and I have a little site about that in Swedish. I've bought lots of Japanese game boy games and consoles and sold some. People started asking me for Famicom games, and then I got into that. :)

In that last few days I've been playing SMB3, and had a great time !!

Hi I'm nyziul. I recently obtained a Sharp Twin Famicom that came with a few FDS games and a cart. This is my first start at collecting Famicom games, since I only used to play NES at my friend's house and didn't have my own system until the SNES. I recently started learning Japanese and I am hoping I will eventually be able to play and understand some of the great games on the Famicom and Super Famicom.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: NintendoKing on February 16, 2011, 08:58:42 am
Excellent, nyziul! You basically acquired one of the best Famicoms on the market, and I find that most games have full text printable translations!

Anyways, both original Famicom and Super Famicom have a wide variety of games; so I am sure you will enjoy the hunt.

Hello,

My name is Craig. I just started my famicom collection a few weeks ago. I now have in my possession a sharp twin famicom in box. I purchased it off a member here on ebay. It came with 13 carts and 4 disks, and, the disk I really wanted(Super Mario Bros2) came with it. I now have The Legend of Zelda,Zelda 2,Metroid,DokiDoki Panic (all FDS), and Super Mario USA and Super Mario 3 both in box. I have always loved my nes and grew up playing it. In fact I still have the original box it came in along with power pad. This was the power set nes. I recently just replaced my 72 pin connector and cleaned all my games. I love being able to pop in a cartridge and it works on the first try.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Lum on April 04, 2011, 06:50:56 am
In my case dire lack of space is stifling. :'( Nonetheless I'm giving famicom a chance. Hope it goes well! I have that tendency to buy weird or foreign consoles then discover their flaws / lack of English games / expensive library / etc, and have to let them go to make room. Did that with things like PC-FX, Neo Geo, or the US Turbo Duo.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

Welcome modeltfordman and Lum!

Can't go wrong with Famicom.

Lum, didn't you enjoy the Pc Engine?
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Lum on April 04, 2011, 05:28:49 pm
Not the american model. Poor AV quality was part of it, composite doesn't do Pc Engine good at all. I upgraded to an rgb duo-r that's a big improvement.

Hey everyone,
Well I recently signed up to the site to help find/sell/trade some famicom items and other gaming stuff too.
I just recently bought a famicom with a some games which some I'm keeping and others I'd like to sell/trade for a couple of games I would like for my system.
I collect just about every system and sell games from a wide-range of systems too. And its great when trades can be made to help with the collection.

I also do some art like the followiing:

Hey, all. My name's Michael, and I'm from the US. I'm in school for music composition right now, and I've always loved classic gaming. I was born right at the end of the 80's, so the first console I ever owned was an SNES which is where I do the bulk of my gaming. At one point, I acquired a friend's NES and a bunch of games, but playing the blinking light was getting old (even after a pin replacement), so I sold it. I recently bought a Hyperkin RetroN 3 and it works beautifully, so I'm regretting selling all of those games and accessories. However, having a more reliable system has inspired me to start seeking out NES and Genesis stuff. I'm currently in the process of finding an FC-to-NES converter and hope to use this forum to learn more about the wonderful world of Famicom and find support when needed.  :pow:

Hello, my name is Josh and my gaming mostly tends to be speedruns and fighting-game tournaments.  To give you an idea, I have the world records for Castlevania 1 + 3 (all characters) + 4 as well as many more obscure games.

That's what ended up bringing me here - I did a Castlevania speedrun on a Japanese stream, and the guy there gave me an AV Famicom and Wai Wai World because he wants me to do a live run of that game for a stream that's about a week from now.  However, he gave me a NES AC adapter to use with the Famicom and I wasn't aware of how bad that is.  So now I have an AV Famicom that won't turn on and I have to pinpoint the cause and fix it before this stream!  Been posting in the repair thread, been able to rule out a couple things at least...have an idea of what's wrong but no idea how to fix it.  Anyone willing to part with a motherboard?  :P

Hi all,

My name is David/Dave/whatever you want to call me i'll answer to most insults as well ;)

Been collecting pretty much everything for many years. Originally from the UK, been living in Japan for close to 11 years.

Must admit i come here at the end of my collecting days - life (work and family) have absorbed pretty much all my time and i'm looking to pass on (... okay... sell!) any and every item i have to those who would be able to give them the time and love they deserve. I have around 200 or sof boxed (in various states) FC games and around 60 or so NES titles but hoping to get those figures down to 0 and 0 :(

Been a long term lurker and hope i don't come off as a flyby seller - i guess most my selling is done on Shmups.system11.org where i -think- i've got a good reputation :)

Anyways, hope i can pass on some stuff and hope to stick around reading threads and inevitably kicking myself for selling up in around a years time! :)

All the best

Hello everyone, I'm KingPepe (as you can probably tell) and I'm from New York (state, not city). You may or may not of heard about BootlegGames Wiki and Pirated Games Central Forums and if you did, I'm the idiot guy who created them. (well, it's more like I revived the wiki) I'm into classic gaming and I've gotten a Famicom somewhat recently although I don't have a lot of games. :X

Hi I've actually had an account here for years and posted just once in a blue moon.  I modify famicoms / nes systems.  And of course I collect too.  Here's the nes / famicom related mods I've done that I can remember doing

lockout chip disable in the nes

permanently wired up 72 pin sockets to toaster nes systems so they work as a top loader

made repro carts using burned eproms

swapped the maskrom from a dead famicom cart into a cheap donor to revive the game

done a few different "stereo sound" mods

added authentic rgb / s-video to av famicoms, the nes 2, and a toaster nes, using rp2c03b ppu chips taken from playchoice arcade boards

modified my nes to famicom adapter to have the powerpak extended audio mixing into the famicom circuit
also modified my nes to famicom adapter to support 100% of nes games (there's some connections they forgot to wire up)

removed the rf box and back plate from my nes 2 and installed the back plate from an av famicom into the nes 2 and added a multi av port to the nes 2

Changed the LED in my toaster to a blue LED

Swapped out chips in av famicoms and nes systems that make the rgb modified system work with a powerpak

Built a pad hack so I can use my 200$ arcade stick on a nes / famicom

I got so flooded with commission orders I taught a modding friend how to do these mods and gave a bunch of commission jobs to him since I sort of got tired of doing the same mods (I prefer experimenting with new stuff).

Shortly I'll be modifying an original famicom and a sharp twin famicom so I can add rgb and s-video and I'll see how good the picture looks from these systems

certain systems have terrible video interference when you add the rgb chip so I'm modding as many systems as I can to find out which ones look okay and which ones have interference

I have never done any FDS related mods mostly because I hate disks and much prefer just using my powerpak to play fds games

Hey everyone,

Snow here. I'm a retro gamer/collector/youtuber, and the Famicom has become a huge interest of mine lately after coming across my first CIB system a ways back. I had wanted one for ages, but was really picky about condition (since so many out there are yellow/brown nowadays).

I collect and play across a huge variety of consoles too; pretty much anything that I had an attachment to as a kid, and stuff that I never had the chance to play back then. Anyway, I've been looking for a place to hang out and discuss all things Famicom, and here I am!

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you guys!

Hi guys. My name is Agustìn and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Famicom Clones and pirate carts have been my thing since I was a 5 year old. They are really really easy to find here in Argentina.
I ended up being a collector when I became a teenager, and having all sorts of Famiclones, pirate carts, Sega clones, Atari clones and licensed consoles and Home Computers that were made in Argentina such as Coleco Vision, Commodore, MSX or Sinclair.

Nowadays I'm starting to offer my services as a middleman for foreign people who would like to buy articles like the ones I've mentioned before on Argentina's eBay: Mercadolibre.com.ar

Nice to meet you all. The forum seems to be pretty good. I promise to participate as much as I can.

Hi everyone, please don't hate me for my obvious love of the [old] SEGA  ;D

I decided to join after coming across this site to learn more about the Famicom (I just received my complete set in the mail yesterday, woohoo!). I love the layout here; it's smart, simple, and full of Famicom love - and the wealth of info is just wonderful. I'm an active member over at racketboy (my favorite all-around retro site, great community) and have completed a handful trades and purchases over there and also participated in our last year's charity auction.

I look forward to learning more about my newly acquired Famicom (I grew up on the NES, then jumping onto the SEGA Genesis), famiclones (really interesting hardware and form factors) and hopefully become accepted here at FW. So with that, "here we go!"

Hi guys!
Names Marcus
I am a small 17 year old xD haha.
I have been collecting old Nintendo games since I was about 12 with all the allowance money I would get from my parents for cleaning the house and mowing the yard.
I have roughly about 450 Nes carts from unlicensed to licensed. The biggest prize in my collection is a cheetahman II cart.
I have always been fascinated with pirate games like somari and world heroes 2. BUT I never knew where to go for them I would type in where to get them on google just out of hope to find one to buy thats not a thousand dollars on ebay haha.
I came across this site and in a week I spent a good 300 dollars on here lol. I seriously just exploded with excitement,
So yeah, hi haha.

Hello FW! Some of you may know me from PCFX. It's great to be here and I just finally got a working Twin Fami after years of waiting. I originally bought one from Japan back in '09. The system needed a belt replacement as is common with these machines, but it tuned out that the drive was damaged beyond repair. My friend Opethian from PCFX hooked me up with a fully functional model and I am awaiting my first batch of discs.

I already have on cart Contra, Wai Wai 2, something-or-other' Fantastic World (weird game!), Kid Drac, Crisis Force, and Donkey Kong Jr.

My system will be on display at the Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee this March. I was part of last year's Turbofest with some PCFXers but this year we are expanding our reach into the main museum hall. The show is getting bigger and bigger every year and I advise anyone who loves retro gaming to come and join us!

I've been interested in the Famicom for a while, and I finally got an AV Famicom and a Disk System recently and whilst I don't have many games as of yet, I'm really enjoying the system so far. Hoping to do an S-video mod on it eventually  :help:

I'm not real good at these but here goes I'm Theressa i'm 21 with a decade of experience. I live in Australia and i've grown up with all sorts of consoles and computers from commodore64's to atari 2600's which i still have but some are not functioning. I got interested in the famicom stuff from watching Anime like Sailor moon and Tekkaman blade and i've managed to hunt down some Sailor moon and Tekkaman blade games for the super famicom. Then i realised i needed the consoles to play them on and i think through the magic of ebay i won a Famicom and a Famicom disk system. Then when i got them i realised i was a tard and got the wrong console! I eventually found a couple of Superfamicom's one still in the box with the super scope 6 which i still haven't tried out!  I found a box of pirate famicom games in a second hand shop and it had some NES and Super famicom games in it too along with a converter i was a happy girl when they took my offer of $10 for the box .
My other hobbies are making custom dolls from boring mass manufactured blondes and sewing and cooking and some other girly stuff!
I have a husband who is younger than some of my consoles and he sometimes helps me with the electrical things i'm no good with. I also have a son who will be 2 early next year. He loves playing with my NES controllers and he has his own gameboy pocket that sometimes works (thats why he can have it :D)  I also have 2 catzillaz who like to chew on random things. I also get frogs that visit at this time of the year

Well thats enough about me hope you're still awake after reading that :D  :crazy:

May as well make a post here.

I'm 23 and I've been playing NES since I was about 8. I never stopped playing the thing, so I don't have that same "revisiting my childhood" feeling a lot of people have when they get back into NES/famicom stuff. I dabble in some soldering/electronics work but I'm not great at it yet. I'm about to do a region mod on my Sega Saturn over Christmas break, then if that goes well try my hand at the AV mod for my red/white Famicom.

I'm a big fan of music and japanese superhero shows (Kamen Rider, Ultraman, Super Sentai, etc.). I originally joined up because someone was selling famicoms for $14! Madness, I thought. I came for the bargain, I stayed for everything else. This is a really interesting community. So many people are so well versed in the technical aspects of the famicom. I have a feeling I'll be staying here for quite a while.

The Famicom is one of 7 consoles I collect games for, but I don't bother with wanting everything in mint condition, a box, some instructions and a feeling of being loved is good enough for me.

Better late than never, I suppose...

My name's Raven and I'm currently unemployed & avidly seeking a job to finance my numerous frivolous expenses, including:

1) Keeping my 48-year-old car (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lestatw/4467788423/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/lestatw/4467788423/)) up and running
2) Collecting action figures (Transformers, Zoids, Halo, Bioshock, Macross, etc.)
3) Buying the occasional vinyl record from a favorite band
4) Acquiring games for my classic game consoles
5) Eventually collecting arcade cabinets

Aside from all the money-eating things, I also thoroughly enjoy drawing/painting, writing music, listening to music, biological sciences, pretty lights & shiny objects, and way too many other things to list.  Although I've been a die-hard classic Nintendo fan since I was about 8 years old, I've only worked up the initiative to start collecting classic game consoles recently when I found a retro game store nearby & traded my 3 broken NES's for a working one.  At the time, I had a SNES, Gamecube, Wii, Xbox 360, PS1, and an N64 missing the power supply.  Since then, I've procured that working NES, in addition to a Sega Genesis, Atari 2600, and a newly-acquired Sega Master System.  I'm considering also getting a Famicom, Disc System, Atari 7800, Sega Game Gear, and a Vectrex.  Where the hell I'm going to display and hook up these consoles (excluding the Vectrex, of course) remains to be seen.

Hi there! I'm DerZocker from Germany. I've been collecting retro consoles and games for a long time now.  I recently ordered a Twin Famicom from Ebay but I'm still waiting for it to arrive. My other intrests are drawing and creating pixelart and working on fangames (well only graphical I suck horribly at the programming/scripting stuff^^). This (http://derzocker.deviantart.com/) is my dA page. Don't be scared though, there's lots of Sega stuff on the recent pages ;D

I guess I should go ahead and introduce myself. My name is Byron, and I just joined here. I have a terrible habit of joining forums and never, ever posting so I'm going to try to break that habit and actually become a member of a community.

Right now I have a Super Famicom that I'm borrowing from someone, but I'm trying to get ahold of a Famicom (without paying $50 shipping).

I'm only 19, so it's strange but cool to be playing and loving games made before my birth.

I'm really interested in analog photography, records, travel, Japan, books, and older video games.

I guess that's all. I hope I can become a member of the community here, and I'm looking forward to good times ahead.

I regularly post over on rfgeneration.com, as well as occasionally on DP and Nintendo Age. I had someone suggest taking a look here as I build my modest Famicom collection.

I've been a game collector for some time, focusing primarily on NES. After picking up a Famicom somewhat recently and some games I am looking forward to picking up some more gems that never made it to the US.

Hello from Canada everyone.

I'm Tom or Pancakes you can call me what you wish, I joined the forum to learn more about the famicom since I only have north american consoles and hope to learn lots more and hopefully one day acquire a famicom!  :yoshi:

I've been in love with 8 bit games since I first played Super Mario Bros. for NES as a child and have started collecting more and more over the past few months.

This seems like a good community and I hope to learn a lot from you guys!  :mario:

That is one of the most intriguing Mega Man compilations because of the Wily Tower stages.

The Game Gear Mega Man is also intriguing, but for different reasons. :P

Welcome, Tomcakes! We here at FW wish our users to be cautious before plunging in to the deep bowels of Masayuki Uemura (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masayuki_Uemura)'s Family Computer...




So I recommend a Sharp C1 (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=429.0) that way if you don't like the Famicom atleast you still have a TV! ;D

Hi.  turkishproverb.  I've been a long time lover of several old famicom games and japanese games in general, to say nothing of odd homebrew games.  I'd been meaning to join up here for a while so I could ask some advice on starting a collection, but the even that finally got me to do it was a friend needing advice.  My game collection isn't huge, and my japanese games are all playstation, handheld, and Superfamicom at the moment.  Used to have a couple famicom carts, but things happened.

Glad I joined though.  You guys seem helpful, and I've got a place to keep an ear out for intersting old games.

Hello!  My name is Travis and I was sent here from Digital Press by Parodius Duh!, who recommended that I check out Famicom World's forum, seeing as a good bit of my questions are NES/Famicom related.  My retro gaming interest is strongest in the NES/Famicom, SNES, and TurboGrafx-16, and I've also been known to play newer games on occasion as well. 

Anyway, I'm glad to be on board!   ;D

Hello all!

I currently live in Japan, Tochigi for now, to be exact. I am now on my 3rd year here. I am originally from New York. On the weekdays I am a human tape recorder (English teacher) and on the weekends I try and game as much as I can inbetween social events and in my downtime. I have been collecting for about a year now I suppose. I will have to put up some pictures of my stash soon. Systems I own are: Famicom, Famicom AV, SNES, 64, Wii, Sega Genesis 2, Sega Saturn, PSX (the dvr model not ps1), ps3, psp, ds. I mostly focus on famicom and enjoy trying to hunt down carts that I like at used stores.

How's the weather in Tochigi?
If you ever come to the Fukuyama (Hiroshima) area, let me know.  ;)

I want to be a full-time tape recorder myself, but I'm not a native English speaker, so that's out of the question. And the demand for my mother language (German) isn't high enough to get a permanent position.  :'(

Hi all. Been lurking here for awhile and decided to join. I've been gaming since the atari 2600 came out in the 70's. I've owned about all the american consoles and computers at one time or another. But have been selling most of it off to get into retro import systems. I've become bored with the same old, same old, games. I also really enjoy the artwork on the Japanese game boxes and carts. Why do we always get the dull boring crap here?

Any ways just thought I'd say hi, and that I envy all you who live in japan. I really hope to get there one day.

Hi guys and gals, I just found this site during a quest to locate a power adapter and some games for my Famicom and Super Famicom that I picked up this week.  I am totally green in the ways of Famicom, but have wanted one for a while now.  I have been collecting consoles for over twenty years and upright arcade games for the past year and a half.

I am pretty excited about the new 8 and 16 bit world that has just been opened up to me.  I look forward to meeting some new people and playing some new games.  I am look forward to any game suggestions y'all may have.

Here are some photos of what I picked up this week.  I can't wait to start purchasing new games.

Hi nerdy girl and welcome to the best generation of gaming.....god I feel old now....
I'm not sure what you mean by "I'm totally green in the ways of the famicom".  Does that mean you're energy efficient?  Just remember....it's not easy being green..

game suggestions.....akumajyo densetsu (if's difficult yet awesome).  Contra (duh, also difficult), rockman / megaman 2 (can be difficult).  Final fantasy 3 (also very difficult....okay I guess everything's harder on the famicom).  That's a good starter set I think.

Thanks for the welcome and the recommendations.  Drakon, I couldn't agree more, the 8 and 16 bit generation were hands down my favorite systems to play.  I see the Famicoms quickly becoming my most played consoles.  I honestly don't know what took me so long to track them down.  As I mentioned I feel like a lost world of games has just been opened up for me.

As of late my console collection has been suffering.  I  have been spending heavier on my upright collection, but I see  that changing now.  I have been cruising the FS thread looking for some new goodies.  Is there anything I should know about or watch out for?

Thanks again.

rarities?  Mr gimmick famicom cartridge.  Trip world for the gameboy.  For famicom: holy diver, crisis force, you'd be surprised that tmnt 2 and 3 both are slightly improved in their famicom versions (but keep in mind tmnt 2 is tmnt 1 on the famicom and tmnt 3 is tmnt 2 on the famocom).  Grand master rocks too.  For nes there's also shatterhand and kick master.

I still remember back in 1996 it was time for me to upgrade to the next generation of gaming console.  But instead I bought my first PC and just kept gaming on my snes for years and years.  Ironically the first console I ever cared about was a nes so even as a kid I could tell what generation of gaming was mostly a waste of time.

Whoa, I am!  Cool.

Hello folks.  First post.  I'm from southeast USA and work as an apprentice electrician (yeah, I'm a construction worker that talks like a Terran SCV.)

I used some posts from this forum (and 2 others) to help me to mod my US NES to play split + expansion audio very recently.  You all have my thanks - now I can rock some Akumajou Densetsu in it's full glory!   8)

I have a few sweet imports, but not much a collection of them so far.... it looks like - CV3, crisis force, holy diver, samurai pizza cats, parodius da, contra, twinbee 1 & 3, quinty, Pop n Twinbee, Valis 3 (just so I can listen to a soundtest for this superb soundtrack), and a handful of rpgs that I can't read (someday maybe...)

Anyway, I live a semi-secret life of being a fanatical game and chip music lover.  I will share some songs I've done or collaborated with on and some other things then I will not speak of this stuff again unless it somehow comes up later.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekhOq6uNqCM (starcraft terran A, here I only played the trumpet and clean guitars)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y2x1Ty7NyR8 (remix of 2 secret of mana songs, I just play drums and a little acoustic guitar and piano part)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nhjd1J8OtkA (zelda 1, skip to :57 to hear the best part, I did all of this one)

But as for  :gamer: I have a fondness for the shinobi series, classic street fighter 2, garou mark of the wolves, starcraft, but my most favorite games might be all the classy 16 bit shooters like Thunderforce IV, UN Squadron, Gaiares, Gradius 3, and this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bn5FzaAS0M4&feature=player_embedded )
     I love music and video games!

akumajyo densetsu, holy diver and crisis force are all very awesome.

And I also share your appreciation for classic sf2...I recently dumped an undumped sf2 ce japanese arcade version so expect to see support for it soon in mame.

*edit*

I just successfully converted my sf2 turbo arcade pcb to rainbow edition  ;D

Also really enjoying your music
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: zoast on March 12, 2012, 06:28:12 pm
thanks! : )

Indeed, I think it's inevitable for me to get a famicom.  I'm a noob to the system though, this looks pretty sweet!  A/V outs (hence the name yes?)   I've heard the US top loader picture is worse than the toaster, that it has scan lines.  I guess this is a whole different beast though?  The picture and sound are much improved?   <- That's a lot of questions  :o       Looks and sounds good from that video.

"I just successfully converted my sf2 turbo arcade pcb to rainbow edition"
Heretic!

Nah.. actually, I haven't ever played this version, so I can't say anything.  Old school mod, didn't some arcades back in the day do that conversion?
Is there anything different you know of in that dump you mention than what you normally see in CE?

A few years ago I did a couple of videos I painfully compiled from me fighting one of my best friends (SF2-Hyper Fighting on 2DF), back when we played a lot.   This one is pretty short (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PRAl1g7mx2I), and just has some funny things in it.  Disappearing fireball glitches?  Some goofy stuff.  But what happened in the last part (1:00->) I've personally never seen before in all the time I've played SF2.

Thanks for the greeting again : )

edit:
oh yeah, nice tips in the expansion audio mod thread!  one of those "why didn't I think of that", very helpful stuff!

Welcome I've been modding for quite some time so I don't mind sharing hard learned tips.  The nes 2 rf video signal is garbage and even composite modding the system you have to be careful with where your wires are otherwise it picks up interference.  Ironically both the nes 2 and the av famicom have the best quality picture when you install a rgb ppu chip.  SF2 turbo is horrible it was released just so capcom could try to compete wtih very popular hacks like rainbow edition.  I play my sf2 arcade board way more now that it's rainbow edition I hardly played it when it was turbo it wasn't very fun.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: zoast on March 13, 2012, 02:44:25 pm
That's a pretty strong opinion on hyper fighting, I like it  : (   I'm curious more specifically what your gripes about it are?  I don't have a problem playing on CE, I just prefer the speed a little faster, CE seems a little too mechanical to me.  One of my favorite characters is dhalsim though so maybe I should play CE more  :P

But honestly when I play arcade fighting by myself, most of the time it's Garou - Mark of the Wolves.  ;D

Thanks for the quick breakdown on the video outputs, I'll most definitely have to keep my sights on that rgb mod for whenever I get around to buying a new TV!
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: Drakon on March 13, 2012, 03:25:02 pm
Everything they added in turbo was worse than champion edition.  I dislike all of the new moves and I really can't stand the colour pallette changes.  For me CE is the perfect speed and turbo is a bit fast...also world warrior is easily too slow.  And turbo literally would have never been made if it wasn't for the popularity of the bootleg hacks, clearly turbo is inspired by the hacks but it's nowhere near as fun.  In turbo they added more speed, certain moves in the air, and new stuff which is exactly what the hacked CE boards had (except the bootleg hacks did it wayyyyy better).  I appreciate that capcom gave characters that previously only had 2 super moves 3 moves each but the new moves don't really help you except for maybe e. honda.  The irony is that turbo literally IS a hack of champion edition.  In fact you can change a champion edition board to turbo and vice versa just by re-burning 3 eproms on the board.

I had the opportunity of growing up playing the illegal hacks so when turbo showed up on the scene I sort of rolled my eyes at capcom trying to immitate a bootleg that made their game more fun in certain ways.  Turbo was never meant to improve on champion edition, turbo was meant to take back the market capcom was losing to these fun hacked boards.  I wish that capcom would have instead found ways to imrove on the game instead of adding silly frills that didn't really improve the experience in any way.

Well, that's all versions of Street Fighter 2. Ironic you dislike SF4, as the matches last longer in that one than in any other Street Fighter game.

SF4 is in no ways a terrible game I just get bothered by the game momentarily pausing for each hit and the animation style looks silly.  Also characters in that game have too many moves so it feels a bit pointlessly over-complicated to me.

Heh, if you think SF4 has too many moves, please, never play Tekken. And maybe we should make a general fighting game discussion thread so we don't have to clog up the introduction forum...

Photo doesn't work.  Is hokusai your actual name or just a handle? (judging by your english fluency I'm guessing it's a handle).  Anyway welcome to the forum.

Yeah I can't stand butchered english by native speakers but you seem to be fine.  I found this Hokusai person after doing a google search on your handle but wasn't sure if he's who you're naming yourself after.  Anything else you can say about yourself besides linking a dead picture and stating that you're a potato?

No, let's not mislead him. We're a very elitist community, if it's not Famicom, then it's not worth talking about. All Famicom, all the time. Famicom, all day, everyday. We eat, sleep, and breath Famicom. FAMICOM!

I'm fromjapanwithpixels. My friends usually call me Gigi or Geeg/Geegs. I've been lurking on this forum for a while and finally decided to register several days ago.

I kind of like video games a lot; it was something I enjoyed when I was younger but gave up for much of the last decade over personal reasons, then a few years ago I returned to the hobby with a new found appreciation for the medium.  :D

I've mostly been focusing on the sixth and seventh generations of consoles as these were the ones I missed out on the most while I wasn't gaming (a retro gamer that likes new games?! MADNESS), however a while back I decided to return to the NES, the system I grew up with. Of course by NES I mean Famicom as I wanted to experience these games without the censorship and westernization that was so common in localized Nintendo games back in those days.

... and that's basically how I ended up here!  :D

I've been lurking for awhile, figured I'd finally introduce myself. I've always had a strong interest in the famicom although I've never owned one (I have owned a NES though). My top 3 games that have influenced me from that era are: Guardic Gaiden (ガーディック外伝), Chô Wakusei Senki Metafight (超惑星戦記メタファイト), and Dengeki Big Bang (電撃ビッグバン). I'd love to own these games at some point.

I hope to acquire a famicom sometime over the summer for a special project.

よろしくおねがいします。  ;D

My Name is Sean.  My parents used to own a authorized Nintendo rental and repair shop here in the US.  I got into collecting NES when it came out here in the us while my parents had the store.  I got heavy into collecting NES after I got sick and quit touring. [I was in a national touring Rock/Metal band for 7 years]  Collecting was a really great way to keep my mind off of having my chemo treatments.  I hit the last about 160games I needed and started to get into the idea of Famicom collecting.  Mainly games worth having that have little to no japanese and non-us released games, as well as Pirates.  I was/am a member of Nintendoage but things there were less about collecting to play and more about collecting to sell at inflated prices.  I still would use NA and have nothing bad to say, I don't want to get banned there but the prices have gotten WAAAY out of range.  I don't mind dropping $X00s of dollars on 1 game but there at NA its all about CIB and Sealed.  I want to play the games and always had the "i collect to play" I don't need the cardboard.  So here I am and I have been treated WAAAAYYYY better just because the atmosphere is just different.  Also NA turned into sega and neo geo and playstation and everything but NES.  If it was NES it had to have a VGA grade of 85+ or no one wants to talk.  It just got too expensive and out of my league.  I love it here and the people have been nothing but kind and want to talk about Fami games and playing and collecting not bragging about bullshit.  It feels like its turning into DigitPress, where Superiority reigns supreme.

Thank you Famicom World, you opened my eyes to great things and kept my interest alive.

Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: sconley666 on May 08, 2012, 08:42:43 am
I was in a band that was more of an opening act.  It was called Our Fate in Hell.  We were just starting out, but starting to play with some REAL bands.  I don't know what kind of music you listen to but I have played with : Drowning Pool, Walls of Jericho, The Devil wears prada, a star called wormwood, DevilDriver, Sevendust, The Black Dahlia Murder, Deicide, A day to remember, Shadows Fall, Trivium, Asking Alexandria, Hatebreed, Kingdom of Sorrow, From First to Last/D.R.U.G.S. , Killswitch Engage, Mushroomhead, Rob Zombie's guitarist RIGGS newer band, Flaw, etc etc etc.  I have hung out with all those dudes plus the guys from Slayer, I hung out with Buckethead for an entire day, that was really cool, I even hung out with that AFROMAN dude, he was "laid back" if you know what I mean ;)  It was starting to really take off,  I had recorded two albums, one was released in limited printing and had about 40 songs recorded in the studio ready to go when I got sick.   There are some HORRIBLE OLD videos of us playing on YouTube but they embarass me to even mention. :crazy:

And after all that I feel like I did what I said in the above post about "bragging about bullshit"

Hi my name is Nick I am a full time college student majoring in computer information systems.  I have been gaming since the 90's.  My first video that I remember and console was Deja Vu on the NES (front loader of course).  I would always get stuck or arrested or killed when the woman in the coat confronted me, years later I looked up a walk through for it, and it turns out you only have to hit her to proceed (what kind of message does that send? Geez Nintendo  ;D )  Then I also had a Super Nintendo, but I didn't have that many games for it for whatever reason (I ended up selling it to Game Crazy when I was about 10 for 12 bucks >:(  Stupid me. )  Then I got a PS1 and the rest is history.  Below is a picture of my NES collection as well as my consoles (not pictured are my Wii, NES, and PS2 )  I have just found Pinball with a converter the other day so now I'm ready to buy Famicom games as soon as I have the funds to.   :)

It would be a bad thing if you actually used it.  My VCR I used as a table for a while now it's just on a shelf somewhere.  I guess newer tvs don't take cable coax anymore.  I havn't watched cable tv in forever watching stuff on the internet is much easier.

Hey there!

I've been a long-time lurker until I finally decided to register a couple of months ago and now I'm taking the next step and finally write something.
I'm usually posting on forums like Assemblergames/shmups.com and, to a lesser extent, some Sega Saturn boards under the nickname "ave", which had already been taken here on FC world.

I have to admit, I never grew up with neither the NES or Famicom. When I started collecting games around 8 years ago, I felt some strange attraction towards the NES, however. I think it's because I used to play a lot of GameBoy when I was a kid and I consider the GameBoy a portable NES in aspects of gameplay and simplicity.
Since I collect only Japanese games and I think the package design of the Famicom boxes is amazing, I finally decided to buy my first Famicom in... err, around early 2008. Since then I've accumulated a nice collection of boxed/complete games (condition varies between a bit used and mint) for both FC and FC disk as well a variety of boxed consoles. I like to both play and collect Famicom and I have indeed the goal to own a complete CIB collection at some point in my life (at least of all non-prize titles, but including rereleases) ;D

Needless to say Game Center CX is one of my absolute alltime favorite shows and I watched every episode multiple times. At least the translated ones, the raw episodes are a bit hard to follow and I'm lost with most of the jokes (my Japanese is quite basic), so except if the game really interests me, I stick with the English ones.

Anyway, I think obsessed with Famicom as I am, this could be a place I like. Many fellow FC-fanatics here, it seems  ;D

Oh, and while I'm at it - is there any place where people post their collections (with pictures)? I'd love to see some other Famicom dojos. Few people in the West seem to collect for this console :)

Thx! I think this is a great place, not too many forums where you have more than max. 1-2 other people around who even own a Famicom!

The main thread for that is Show Your Stash! (http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=523.0), but some people post their collections in other threads.

Hello Famicom World and its avid retro gamers, I'm GamePepper. I haven't actually ever owned a NES and don't have one yet, and that was because I was born in late 90s, so I wasn't really born with SNES or any other retro consoles because I was busy crying and shitting myself to death.

But, few weeks ago, I started craving for new stuff to do and I decided to start collecting NES games. I sold my PS3 and I will probably buy my NES and a couple of games tomorrow or during this week.

Obviously I don't have a stash of games to show to you guys because I don't have any console games at the moment.
But maybe there will be a nice stash of games, and maybe I'll show it to you later.

I'm honestly surprised how many young people are playing classic games.  Makes me happy that a new generation can enjoy these great games.  Even emulated versions on newer consoles aren't such a terrible thing.

Hey guys, just signed up today! I've played NES stuff since it was new, and currently rock a AV modded NES 2. Some of my buds were looking to get into collecting Famicom, and it seems interesting so here I am. I'm still not sure if I want to dive into the Japanese end of the pool, but I'm keeping my eye out on a good Famicom system. I already have an old Yobo FC clone system, so technically I have the ability to play them now, but it doesn't really feel like real hardware.

I'm also a bit of a tinkerer/modder, so I'll be eating up the tech threads.

Hello! I guess I should introduce myself since I am posting here.

I found the forums on accident actually! I was browsing for reasonable famicom products and came upon Miguel's threads lol. I am an avid fan of retro Nintendo products, growing up gaming was a big influence in my life. Nintendo being my no.1 In the last couple of years, I have began to slowly gather a collection of anything I can get my hands on.

I own 1 Famicom with A/V Modification.  Currently working on getting a Famicom Disk System and expanding my Super Fami collection.

thanks for having me and I hope we can help each other grow as Nintendo fans~

Thanks!  The right way would be....have the video line go on top of the shielding....that's really all that's necessary to not get jailbars.

Wouldn't that yield a video signal that was too weak? I built an amp that duplicates the composite video circuit of the toaster NES, and the video quality is identical. I didn't try it unamped.

Ah, okay. There are some people that either build the amps incorrectly or tap the composite video further down the circuit, causing the video to look like crap.

Hey everyone! I picked up a Sharp Twin turbo from YJA a while back and have been playing the heck out of some famicom games lately. Some of my earliest memories are from me and my sisters playing NES though so it's nothing new to me.
The fami has really restored my love for these systems. Lots of new territory especially with the FDS and the 3d glasses I just got.
Looking forward to chatting and trading with you guys!  ;D

Hello.

I have been a big fan of NES games for quite a while, but recently have imported a Famicom in order to play a few Japan exclusive games, and because I love the overall design and colour scheme of the console. I've fallen more and more in love with it, and really hope to expand my collection as well as uncover a few hidden gems in the Famicom library.

Just a little bit about myself: I'm currently working at Showa Canada as a quality inspector, at least until the school season starts again where I am getting my degree in Software Engineering. My favorite game is Illusion of Gaia for the SNES. I like to program up simple game engines in my spare time, sadly I can never bring myself to finish a game completely because I often get bored with the mid-design data entry aspect of it.

Anyway, I'm glad and look forward to talking with fellow famicom-fans.

So yeah, looking to talk about and hopefully do some business with a few of you to get some good games and stuff. Cheers.

Hello hello, I'm theamity9, but you can call me Matt. I'm a 20 (almost 21) years old web developer from the city of Melbourne in Australia.

I've collected NES, SNES and N64 games for quite a while. I originally intended on collecting all of the Final Fantasy series, I've loved it ever since a child, which led me to buying 2-6 on Famicom/Super Famicom since FF2 (FF4 JPN) and FF3 (FF6 JPN) didn't even get a PAL release. Shortly after researching the Famicom a bit I quickly became obsessed with it and thus my new collection was born. Since I've just started I only got 7 titles, FF1 through to FF6, and Secrets of Mana all CIB.

Anyways, I hope to stick around for a very long time, and it's nice to meet you all. :)

I've been into old games since they were the new games, got hooked on the Sega Master System when I was a kid and it kinda went on from there. I've been collecting for most consoles for a while now but am starting to narrow down my collecting to just NES and Famicom.
I also have a blog I sometimes use to talk about old games and whatever.

Im very interested in importing some things, n64/sfc, and even a famicom system and some games...once an awhile ill have items up for trade. due to my weekly thrift store shopping....sorry if i seem to babble, but im not sure what i need to put into a introduction....also if any one who wants to import American games let me know,,,,unless its really valuable or a console for cheap. if its a game i have no interest in in owning my self. i leave it for some one else... ill be posting some items in the WTT/FS section hope no one minds :)

I've been playing video games since I was a kid and still haven't grown out of it by 26. ;D I never specifically decided to start collecting video games, stuff just started piling up... Importing Japanese consoles just made sense because they got more exclusives, the games are generally cheaper and besides, it makes a good way to keep up on my Japanese skills. :P I play old games and new games and everything in between.

I am glad I found this community , it's awesome!  ;D
for many years I wanted a nes/famicom but for some strange reason I never got one... until a week ago when I received a package from 80sFREAK  ;)
I don't really understand how I was managing without a famicom but it's time to make up for the lost time!
I have every current gen machine and all notable 8/16/32/64bits ones (except jaguar/3do/cdi that did not catch my interest and are sold) and I am a HUGE fan of DOS pc games era... (you can see my small DOS collection on a cheesy background here: http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p55/restqp/carton%20boxed%20old%20games/ )

Hello everyone!

I'm SteelGeneral from Winchester, KY in the United States. I've been bargain hunting and amassing video games for at least 7 or 8 years now, but I just got into the Famicom collecting scene this year. I bought the original Famicom and around 10 games when I went to Tokyo for a week this past spring break with my college history class. It's quickly becoming my favorite niche system to collect games for.

I'll probably end up lurking here more than anything, but this community looks like the best place to get my hands on Famicom games outside of Japan. eBay just seems to suck all the fun out of collecting for me. I've already got about 7 games coming my way from senseiman, and I may try to get a Famicom Twin or a FDS from here sometime in the near future.

I Have benn playing Famicom for only few weeks and I love this console.

The reason ?

The Cartridges are very cool and 60 hz rocks

I am from France, so i am used to 50hz with old consoles... And 50hz sucks !!!!

I have a twin famicom and some games like rockman, gradius, ninja gaiden and double dragon :)

Hello  :),

My name's Vincent, 30 years old, I'm from France.

I have two gaming hoobies :

- Arcade games, I have my own arcade cabinet (new astro city)
- Retro consoles, especially famicom/nes.

I fell in love with the famicom disk system, and had the chance to get a brand new one.

Also, I like technical stuff, making mods when I've got time.

I'm happy to see such a community about the famicom  ;).

Hey.  I'm an artist revisiting the era 1989-92 and for the purposes of Fami World that means the video games I enjoyed then, but could't afford or misunderstood.  I hung around & befriended the proprietor of an import gaming shop and was crazy for Famicom.   Now I've got a Power-Joy & budget for the cartridges.   I have a bootleg Kid Dracula, legit Mario 3 and just purchased Kunio-kun Dodgeball from seller hit-Japan.   Looks like I might be able to score some others (ice climber, Goemon) for cheap and combine shipping.   Happy to be here and talk gaming!

Hi!

My name is Mike and i'm a 23 year old swede. (English is my second language so you have you have too excuse any grammatical or spelling errors)

This summer I got intrested in the famicom and started collectiong both games for the Famicom / FDS and the super famicom.

Most of the games i've got so far are games with differences between the the japanese and the pal games like musical enchancing chips or games that didnt come out in other regions.

And I joined this forum cause it seemed like a perfect place to talk about games released for the famicom and other great systems.

Now I don't know how much more I oculde say so I am going to end it here....  looking forward to talking about games with all of you!

I like games with enhanced music chips. So far the only one I have is Rolling Thunder, but someday I might get that Gimmick! game everyone seems to be stumbling about. Big Sunsoft fan.

By the way, welcome to the forums!

Hi everyone!  I am a 22 year-old retro game enthusiast who started out on the NES at the age of 4!  I have owned and played a NES since then, using a Honey Bee adapter for imports and an owner of the PowerPak since 2007.  I have coveted the Twin Famicom since I first read about it at the age of 11, and yesterday I finally acquired the Turbo model AN-505BK!   ;D  I just sold my PowerPak to a friend and am anticipating that the InviteNES flash cartridge will be much more capable.

Like previous posters, I also enjoy the expansion sound capabilities of many Famicom games and the Disk System.  It's exciting, especially since NES games in my region weren't capable of such expansion!  I'm also interested in the latest developments of the homebrew community as well as the occasional pirate original that's actually of decent quality.

Though I am a huge fan of the Famicom, Super Famicom is still my favorite console.

More about me:  I'm what is called genderqueer, not identifying as a man or a woman; you may notice I prefer to use ambiguous language in most situations to convey the way I think.  Also, I'm currently studying Chinese and Japanese, though I am not yet fluent in either language (Asian language would be my more 'serious' passion  :fire: ;) ).
Game on!   :redcart:

Let me know how it is. I'm considering saving up for one. So far the Power Pak is my only source for playing FDS games, & people say the extra audio is not so great on that.

Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. I've always loved the NES (own 1 CIB Action Set, 2 loose front-loaders, and a top-loader.) I've always admired the Famicom for it's looks, cartridges, and legacy, so I'm looking into finally grabbing an original model and getting it AV modded. My goal is to one day have every shoot 'em up released for the console, as well as the 6 Rockman cartridges, but having only loose copies of Gradius and Gun Nac, I've got quite a ways to go.  ;D
I'm looking forward to the opportunity of sharing my growth and experiences with everyone here. Thanks for having me, Famicom World.  :redcart: That little cartridge is rad.

Heya Famicom / NES World

I am GBK also known as Reinhold Hoffmann there in the grey and dark real world

I came across this forum because i saw that i got a few visitors on my own website from here almost every day due to it being mentioned / linked in 2 threads..today i thought i look at this site to see what it is about :-)
(http://th00.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2011/045/7/f/the_gamer_by_gbk666-d39k23d.jpg)
I am 32 years old, the NES was my 2nd console and i still have one  as you can see on this wonderful photo..and yes..i am mostly a fighting game guy

I am not collecting old games anymore but i am trying to preserve a part of the glorious video game history / past with art projects by gamers. Some of you might have read about the Legend of Zelda art project "Link's Blacklist" as example where the many..many monsters and boss characters of the Zelda games are drawn by mostly professional artists who are also gamers. This includes even the Zelda 1 & 2 characters which are hardly illustrated in any form beside a few old concept artworks. Via Game Art HQ.com a community i build up in 2011 we try to document gaming history with visual art and well, maybe this topic will interest some of you here as well


Greets from Germany, i hope writing a thread about Link's Blacklist as example or an Castlevania Art Tribute which is in the works currently is allowed

I'm from Germany and I grew up playing with the PAL NES.
Only a few days ago I got my very first Famicom, an AV Famicom to be precise.

I just can't believe how small and compact the AV Famicom is. It even makes the SNES Mini appear bulky  :D

(http://i.imgur.com/KtUsxUA.jpg)

I think I've fallen in love, haha. I really like the small colorful cartridges with the big artwork on front.

Now I'm eager to get some more famicom games and maybe a 72->60 pin adapter to play my NES games with a better picture quality and higher speed.

Hello.
Found the forum while googling for an obscure Famicom game.

I'm 36, gamer since childhood, collector since 2007, living in the middle of South America.
Started collecting everything, but years later I shifted my focus to shoot'em ups only.

Love the Famicom/NES, it's my favorite 8-bit system. Some of my old favorites are Mega Man III, Battletoads, Batman, Metal Storm, Astyanax, Gradius, Ninja Gaiden, Super Sprint.

I've been on the forum a few months now, so I guess I should do a little intro.

I'm Jackson, I'm 28, and I'm from Lincoln, Nebraska, USA. I've been a gamer since my family picked up an NES when I was about 4. I built up a decent little collection raiding yard sales in the '90s, but started buying up lots of stuff only about three years ago. My collection is right around 600 carts (more than half of them NES). I have played nearly every NES game made, but I only keep games in my collection that I enjoy playing.

I started buying FC carts to supplement my NES collection, and they've since become my second-largest collection. (I'm nearing my 100th FC game.) What can I say? 8-bit gaming is my favorite, regardless of region.

Hello fellow gamers, 
My name is Corey and I am currently living in Texas. I am 30 years old and have been playing video games since the age of 3. I started off playing my cousins Atari 2600 and got my NES for Christmas the following year. I still own that same NES and my collection has grown quite a bit since then. I have wanted to start collecting for the Famicom for years now but for some reason I never did until just last month. I now own a Famicom and Disk System and picked up a large lot of games to get me started. I look forward to future conversations with all of you.

Hello everyone. I visited this Website numerous times over the past 4 or 5 years, recently realized there's a forum!  ;D

My very first experience with Famicom was a Toaster NES when I was two years old (so they tell me). I've always held a special place in my heart for this system as well as the Super Famicom. From rented games that would dirty up my system to going to Toys R' Us to gawk at the game isle, As well as the lure of Funco Land. :-[

I've seen a good portion of yesterday and can't wait to experience some more with you all.

Hello everyone.
I just recently found this site a few days ago and it had a lot of info on Famicom stuff, so I decided to join.
I'm TMBlitzK, my real name is Throckmorton. I'm a 16 year retro video game collector (sort of). I own around 18 different consoles. I just just got a yellowed-out Famicom online recently because I always wanted one as a young child and I never had a Japanese game console before. My Famicom collection is minuscule but  I'm slowly building it up by ordering games on ebay. I've discovering cool games that weren't released in America on the NES like Kid Dracula. I also plan on getting a disk system in the future because I want to get "Yume Kojo: Doki Doki Panic". Besides gaming, I'm very interested in Japanese culture and would like to learn Japanese as a second language.
Anyways... Thats enough about me.

I'm more an arcade collector than I am a console collector really, but I'm ready to make an exception for the Famicom. I find the system very soulful. Looking forward to hanging out with you guys! :)

Hello everyone,

I started playing on a famicom back in 1989 and have been gaming since. I recently got into a famicom disk system binge(2 player excitebike? yes please!). Picked up a sharp twin famicom, did belt replacement and spindle hub alignment. Picked up 11 games. 7 work great, I am seeking the help of ericj with the 4 others (2 corrupt, 2 wrong game).

Even though I game on many different systems there is just something special about Nintendo.

I landed on this site (and ericj) doing FDS research.

Hey everyone. My name is Alex. I am also known on the internet as SomeRussianMarioDude. SatoshiMatrix has linked me to this website. I got interested in collecting some games for NES/Famicom, SNES, Gameboy last summer.
I have lots of bootleg Famicom carts from my childhood that could be found in my country in 90s. I also have a few licensed Famicom cartridges as well. Also NES/Famicom is my most favourite retroconsole of all time, even though I have other consoles from these times as well, like SNES or Gameboy. :)
If you have something to ask me, feel free to do so. :D

As for YouTube, that's right, I actually have a YouTube channel. Here it is (http://www.youtube.com/user/SomeRussianMarioDude).

Hello, Famicom World.

I stumbled upon the Famicom about only about 5 years ago (I'm a bit young), although I had an NES all my life. I only really got seriously into it about three years ago when I got into producing music with FamiTracker. I bought myself a powerpak for my NES shortly afterward, and only then, did I begin seeing what I had been missing. Just recently I got myself a Famicom, performed what I hope to be the first "USB AV" mod on it and have started buying games for it. I joined this forum a few months back after spending years on other FC websites, and hope to be as helpful as I can during my time here.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: security16 on July 08, 2013, 04:06:56 am
Welcome :) I am kinda excited to see how a USB/AV mod would work but i'm a slight techtard so the technical aspect is lost on me.  There is no such thing as too young really here even though some of us are older we're raising the next generation of famicom fans!
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: ImATrackMan on July 08, 2013, 05:11:47 pm
Only a few photos. It's actually not at all different from the normal AV mod, just instead of 2 AV jacks, you route the four wires (Video, V-ground, Audio, A-ground) to the four pins on the USB jack. no hole drilling is necessary, because it fits perfectly into the hole of my unused second controller.

Hi all!

I've just been lurking in the forums for at least the past 3 months gaining information on A/V modding a Famicom. Thanks to some of the members here, I have successfully done the mod.

After looking through the tech forums, I'm hoping to add some of my modding knowledge to the mix.

Anyway, I'm glad to finally be part of the group.

Welcome everyone, I'm fairly new myself, just a few posts above you. That mod is pretty clever and space saving for the back side of the Famicom.

Good to see there's still enthusiasm to be seen from a younger set that didn't grow up with it. Just goes to show, it's fine piece of hardware.  ;D

hello, im a bit late introducing myself but, I found this site awhile ago trying to repair my famicom that I had just got. I have been wanting one for a long time now and although I do collect all Nintendo systems nes, snes, n64, gamecube, virtual boy, some Gameboy stuff and an Ique player so far, I always loved the fact of how many more cool accessories and interesting games the famicom had to offer (IMO). I plan to stay pretty active on the forum and will be buying and doing some trades hopefully, ( cant wait for another kais mystery grab bag  ;D ) I will be pretty soon getting a disk system and one of my main goals for this site is to eventually get the disk system, 3d system and a lot of fun games for them, while im doing that I will try to help out and learn more about the famicom. :)

I'm new here. This you probably already figured out. Hold on, I don't see myself being able to use the Bub emote very often, so I'd like to use it now:  :bub:

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. About me: I've been a Nintendo fan for as long as I can remember; my mom tells me that I started playing Super Nintendo when I was only three years old. I have a vague memory of buying my Super Nintendo... It was at KB Toys, and it was the SNS-101 model that came bundled with Yoshi's Island. That moment started it all...

As for Famicom stuff, I have an AV modded Famicom and a decent amount of games. The game that I treasure the most is definitely Gimmick!. Just the cart since I don't collect the boxes, though.

Outside of Nintendo stuff, I'm really into Polaroid cameras and instant film. The pride and joy of that collection is my Polaroid 195, a very rare and highly desirable camera. I'm also very interested in yo-yos. Yes, yo-yos. Yo-yos are no longer quite what you think they are; they've evolved far beyond the simple up-and-down and walk the dog. It's common now for a yo-yo to cost over $100 due to the fact that they're made of precision-machined aluminum, laser engraved, and contain ball bearings. The jewel of my yo-yo collection is my The End by Yes, Absolutely. Only around twenty or so made, and they very rarely show up for sale. However, when they do, they can go for over $300.

So yeah, that's me. I apologize for writing so much! It's very easy for me to write a ton about this stuff. Just so you all know, I don't tend to post much on message boards, so don't be surprised if I'm not around much (outside of the B/S/T; I can see myself getting a lot of use out of that).

Cheers,
Teal Summer Nights

Famicom > PAL NES
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: nerdynebraskan on November 26, 2013, 08:58:52 pm
That seems to be an assumption shared by many Europeans. The whole PAL-consoles-running-15%-slower thing seems to be a major turnoff to many vintage players. That, and the PAL library is pretty limited in comparison to what we got here in the States (let alone the really huge Famicom library).
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: P on November 27, 2013, 03:45:20 am
As a European I agree! PAL library sucks even more than US library and we can't even import Japanese games without slowdown. I would only really need to get a PAL NES again if I wanted to play PAL exclusive games.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: nerdynebraskan on November 27, 2013, 09:20:08 am
And there really aren't that many PAL-only Nintendo games. There were a bunch of cool ones like Hammerin' Harry and U-Four-Ia that we didn't get in the States, but there are also Famicom versions of those. I have thought about importing a PAL NES to play games like Asterix and Elite; the PAL-only games are often the ones that don't work right on an NTSC console at all, and some of the others still have minor glitches and speed-up issues on my faster machine. But I'm not sure I could even get one to run on my TV; PAL compatibility seems to be a recent addition to US TVs, and my TVs are almost as old as my 8- and 16-bit games.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: P on November 27, 2013, 11:05:55 am
Yeah those games are using the extra graphic update time (AKA vertical blank or vblank) between each frame, that the PAL NES has. However PAL games that was first made for NTSC often doesn't use the extra vblank time at all.
It's good to hear that US TVs at least sometimes has support for PAL nowdays.

Hey, I am alex from London , I've been collecting every thing Nintendo for many years , but the last 5 years I've collected Nintendo arcade machines.Now I've reached my maximum capacity with the cabs I've gone back to collecting console games .
In the last year I've started bumping up my famicom games but have noticed the prices have gone through the roof .
So I am hoping I can meet fellow collectors  for trade.

Hello there Community!
After I had troubles finding an username, I finally registered myself an account here. For the last few years I already collected quite a few games for various consoles, of course nothing comparable to some other collections you see on the internet but my room was quite a mess with all these videogame-stuff lying around. The thing was: I never really played a game. I think that many videogame-collectors know how this feels but I did that to the extreme. For months I never touched a game, played like 3 or 4 games in the whole year but kept buying new ones. I had to put an end to this, so I sold most of my games, currently still selling the stuff that is left and it is a good feeling. Maybe someday I'll regret some sales but there wasn't anything really rare in my collection anyway.

Well, this is my rough background story, now the reason why I registered here: My goal is to finally appreciate videogames again for that what they are: games. I choosed just one console I want to buy games for, and finally play them. After I searched through the world-wide-web I thought that the Famicom would be an awesome thing to have. Such a huge game-library with games of all kinds, many games which are considered as classics by the videogaming scene, which I sadly never played. I already found some useful information on the main-page and needed to become a part of the Famicom World community. So, here I am, knowing pretty much nothing about the Famicom, but willingly to learn and become passionate about the Famicom.

I hope that the community can take such a newbie like me, maybe there are some people here who are in the same situation like me and I was thinking about creating Highscore-threads for various games (are there any highscore-threads?) to encourage the community to not only collect Famicom games but also to play them and have fun together with the community.

Soooo ... I think that is enough for the start.
See you in the forum!

Greetings Ginkgo*

Welcome to Famicom World Gingko! There are lots to learn about the Famicom by just looking around at old threads by searching for things that interests you about the Famicom. If you don't find a thread about high scores maybe you can open one.

I don't play so much either lately. But mostly because I don't have time and I know that I will waste a lot of time if I start playing!
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: senseiman on January 30, 2014, 05:57:43 am
Welcome to Famicom World, Gingko!  I think if you want a console to actually play games on, then you will be quite happy with the Famicom!  ;D

So true, I'm still not finished with reading the articles on the mainpage, the forum is a great ressource for anything Famicom.

I'll totally do that. I thought about creating seperate highscore-threads for each, highscore based, game I'll play in the near future. That involves the community, we could talk about strategies and stuff like that. I wonder if the community would like that.

Oh I'm sure that I'll have a lot of fun, Famicom-Games are actual games and not interactive movies like Assassins Creed for example.
Ahh ... enough current gen bashing, I didn't want to get on that level, excuse me, there are some good games on the current gen  :-[

Hello!  :bub:

I'm Charles from the U.S.
I've loved Nintendo since I was 3, and was voluntarily peeing my pants because I didn't want to stop playing my favorite games.
(Thankfully that's all behind me now)
I never got too into the Famicom itself until my one year stint as an English teacher in Japan last year. The Akihabara retro game shops became my stomping grounds of sorts. I bought a super Famicom, and a few games. I knew I couldn't buy much more at the time because I didn't have a lot of room to take it home with me, and I didn't want to pay for shipping (a bad move in hindsight)
Anyways, I became fascinated with all of the Japanese only FC/SFC (etc...) games that I saw there. I also got to see some big names in FC music play live.

So basically now, I'm even more obsessed with old games than I ever was.
I hope to contribute to the conversation and have some fun times posting on the formus.
Thansk!
;D

Hello all!

I've been putting off starting a famicom collection for a long time now, and the time has finally come to take the plunge.

The NES was my first console, loads of amazing memories playing it right up until I upgraded to a playstation 1 a year or so after it's release (managed to skip the 16-bit consoles completely somehow). My childhood NES stuff is long gone ('lent' to someone by my big brother) and I always wanted to buy back everything I had as a kid and play some old games again.

That was until I discovered the famicom, the same console with more (ugly) style, amazing box art, all the games I had as a kid plus piles more weird and wonderful Japanese oddities. Since then I've been waiting for the right time to start buying, and I guess the right time for me is now!

I've lurked a lot, read a lot but I'm still a relative newbie. I'll try not to ask too many stupid questions!

Thanks for having me  :D

Hello all.

Just starting a Famicom CIB collection, so I thought I better register here.  Great, knowledgeable community you have, so joining is a no brainer. 

I've been retro gaming for many years, but never had a NES back in the day, so don't know that much about the NES\Famicom really.

I have my 1st game, a mint, CIB copy of Akumajou Densetsu.
(http://s17.postimg.org/ll0tcv57f/PICT0556.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ll0tcv57f/)

Not an easy game to beat though. 

So yeah, its all good. :D

Will be seeing you around the forums.

Introducing my new forum. Classic Nintendo Gaming (CNG)

Hi all! My name is Anton and I'm not new to Famicom World. I love this forum and people, read it almost every day. I've also made some pretty nice deals with manuel, 80sFREAK and Xious and got my FDS  and many famicom games from here. But this is not the main reason of this post.

I want to introduce you to my new Nintendo dedicated forum called CNG (Nintendo Gaming Forum).
This forum is a split up from a dutch forum called Palrocks, where I was a moderator for almost 5 years. The main reason of Palrocks ending was that the forum became too general and was flooded with non Nintendo and nextgen topic's. So many true NES collector's and gamers where loosing interest and leaving forum.  Soon after Palrocks shutdown the hardcore members and moderators created new forum called CNG, that is only NES/SNES/Famicom/N64/Gameboy and G&W dedicated. No other consoles are allowed. At this moment we have 119 members, most of them are from Palrocks which we have selected by their profile.
The main goal of CNG is to create a good international platform for Nintendo collectors and to enjoy our hobby by playing games.  The most popular topic is the NES play-off where we finish NES games, post pictures and get achievement points. Now we have one for Famicom games, so I figured maybe you guys/gals  can help us  :upsetroll:
So CNG is originally a Dutch forum but we have many international collectors form Europe and US. All of you are welcome to join, trade and enjoy! CNG is a private forum, so you have to send an email with you name, interest and your nick to info@nintendoforum.nl and I'll create an account for you. CNG forum url is www.nintendoforum.nl
I hope that Famicom World mods don't mind my introduction post.

Thanks!

Hi there, fellow collectors!

Being a mostly GB collector, i've started collecting famicom stuff since February. So far i have about 20 carts, AV modded Famicom, Vaus controller and Hudson Joycard.
I've spent all my childhood playing famiclones like Dendy and Kenga and i have no regrets. :]

Oh yeah! I'm also a 2d/3d artist, so i can make some repro/custom labels for you! Here's some (http://i.imgur.com/8TiyIVe.png) examples (http://i.imgur.com/S0GISlp.jpg).

Hello Everybody!
I'm an old school 8 bit Atari 400/800 NES, Sega...etc. guy. I love Gunpla/Plamo/Manga/Anime. Jeez, I remember back in the early 90's when we still called it Japanimation, which sounds so funny now.I went on vacation/Mecca in Japan this April/May for 2 weeks (at 38 years old,  a dream vacation, trust me). I went to Akihabara (stereotypically) and bought lots of anime/manga/fan-boy stuff, then I saw a couple retro game shops.  Hmmm...$35 for a complete SFC console I heard so much about... I mean I love SNES and... Holy Shit! Sooo Many games...
3 Days later on my birthday I buy a handheld FC player at Don Quijote. + Rockman 3, Dragonball, and a Gundam RPG.

Then I got home and the depression of being home and my lame job set in. I work/try hard.

Depression sets in so let the fun begin!

After being home , I bought a couple FC games from Japan via Epay but now more and more, an SFC and Famicom Twin. The FMC twin after too many dead FDS drives that I'm still working on.  The FDS is the shit yo! I got Atari 800 1080 Disks so I know what time it is. I know hiragana and katakana so the full immersion of RPG games can only help, right? 謎の村雨城 I love it! As an 80s-90s Manga fanboy I can get Dragonball, SPace Sheriff, Macross, Gundam, Slayer, Saint Seiya, Mospeada...etc games? Dirty Pair is hard but I keep playing it...same with Muraasamejou..

Hell yea!!

Now all I need is a job in Japan... PM me man...I gotta BS in Graphic Design and am hard working and smart...

I love this shit...let the membership Grow!! (in Vegeta Voice)

This Forum is great...

Hello everyone!

I'm just an old school player who misses the old days of video gaming where playing through every game literally takes patience and persistence and testing the old trial-and-error theory for every game purchased. Nowadays, well, saving at a certain poitn just ruins the playability and experience.

So let's just talk about the old Famicom/NES days, and enjoy! ;)

Hello :)

I am a longtime gamer / collector.  It wasn't until somewhat recently that I really started looking into Famicom games - I've always known about them, but for whatever reason just didn't really explore them too much.  There are some great games I've yet to experience and I'm looking to expand my knowledge / collection.

This seems like a very nice, relatively small community - so I'm happy to be here.

Thanks!

Oddly enough, in terms of gaming consoles, I only own a famiclone and have lately found that I'm more interested in Famicom games that didn't go stateside as opposed to those that did.

So, here I am.

Hello all. I forgot to introduce myself. I was born i n 1976 and lived through the NES years in Australia. I was in Japan when the gameboy was released and loved it. The whole Nintendo Sega battle for dominance. I then migrated to play a lot of the classics on emulators. But now I have started a small collection of games I like to play. Already have met some nice people on here already. Look forward to meeting some more.

Hi everybody.
After a couple of hard years, I just got free time to play again and start over to visit some game forums.
Re-introducing myself: I'm Dan, 41 winters, tattooer and Famicom and Sega Genesis (and all that old consoles) lover.

Hi everyone!

I'm Jacob, a kid who didn't actually live when the Famicom/NES/Dendy/Pegasus was popular, but I always enjoyed Virtual Console games so I got a toaster NES. That broke (AC adapter problems) so I'm getting a Famicom!

I was watching an old JewWario video about Chinese Fami pirate games when he talked about Famicom world, and I signed up!

I think that systems like the NES and Famicom are great because they don't cost much at all ($25 for an original Famicom on eBay, and you can get clone consoles in shops for $60 or less) and they have games everyone knows like Super Mario Bros., Rock (mega) man, and Zelda.

Anyways, it's good this forum isn't one of those (http://xkcd.com/50/) kind of things.

Yo-yo everybody!

The name's Tobias. I've been collecting games of all kinds for about 15 years.
Through out my years the collection-core has been NES and SNES (more specific; SCN-region games)
The market has over the last few years exploded in popularity, and therefore I can't afford to continue my collecting...

So now I've decided to start collecting Famicom-related games instead! :D

I'm 27 years old, born and raised in Sweden.

Last week I got my hands on a loose Famicom, which I'm gonna try to AV-mod as soon as I can get my hands on a descent soldering machine.
(The Famicom gives the TV a good picture, via RF, but no sound except for a lot of buzzing noises, and some local-radio noises in the background... Kinda cool when you think about it. xD)

In this case I suggest to try this cheap method: http://www.famicomworld.com/forum/index.php?topic=9721.msg137084#msg137084
First you can touch the antennae of an FM-radio with the RF-cable and see if you get sound from the game through the radio's speaker. If it works, you can get a splitter.

Hello! I didn't grow up in the FC or NES era and have only been into video games for a few years. I got interested in the Famicom because of the differences with the NES. The colored cartridges, the things that actually made it a "computer" (Data Recorder, Disk System, Family BASIC), etc. so I decided to start collecting.

Hi!

I'm from Estonia. Raised by random Chinese hardware and NOAC knockoffs that came from Russia/USSR. Had a break in 8-bit gaming for about 20 years. Now I've been fixing and resurrecting various Dendy's and "Endingmen" for about a year. Thanks to eBay I could finally get a real Famicom and also original carts (so feed up with 9999999 in 1  :P)

Hello, I'm Bakayote, a video game collector and ROM hacker.

I grew up mainly with the NES and Genesis. But just recently, about last year, got into importing old Japanese games.

I got a Famicom half a year ago, and I'll be getting a Twin Famicom sometime soon. And I have to say, I like the small Famicom game packaging a lot more than the giant NES game cartridges. Plus there are some gems for the Famicom that never came out in the USA that are really good.

Nice to meet you all.

Welcome to Famicom World.

YOU WILL STAY WITH US

FOREVER

Anyways, you grew up with the NES and Genesis? It must have been really fun back then. Maybe I should get a time machine.  :)

Anyways, I hope that you find everything you want at the Buy/Sell section, they have lots of multicarts. You can also get them at the Auction section. As for the other sections, do what you please, you can talk about anything from Wrecking Crew to Hummer Team pirates.

Hi!

I'm ScoreAddict. I'm more of a Sega-guy, but I sure love me some Nintendo! ;)

Recently, I bought my first Famicom. I paid way too much for it and it's broken too. Never trust friends without any clue who recommend strange offers from guys who end each and every of their emails with a stupid grinning smiley.  :crazy:

Me and the Famicom... never heard about it in the 80s, that's for sure! Back then Japanese consoles were (to me) as strange and alien - i.e. hard to get and expensive - as interplanetary expeditions! Mars no problem, next year, but Japanese imports?

Some of my friends started importing Japanese games around the SNES-era in the early 90s, but certainly not before. No money, no clue and way to many customs regulations etc. Well, same goes for me.

When I finally got around my first NES about a year ago I read about the Famicom and the process of it "becoming" the NES in the US. Fascinating, I thought, how very similar to the Sega Master System which had also derived from a computer line by the same company! Well, it's actually not as easy as that, isn't it...

But, anyway, I digress! Love to be here and to share some input and experiences with the rest of you! Oh, and hoping to get my fix, eh, my Famicom fixed I mean. ;)

Hello,

I'm MrTselevel, I live in Los Angeles, CA.  I am pretty much a Nintendo fan since the days of game & watch but I havent really played much video games since after the gamecube era

I was always very fond of the famicom as a kid. My dads coworkers kid once lent me Ninja Gaiden 3 for the famicom way before its USA releas in which I had to use a Honeybee cartridge convertor to work with my NES.  Another friend of mine had a very large famicom library that I was quite fond of, but he lost it when his family had to move multiple times.

All this time I have been enamored with the all aspects of the famicom, the looks of the system, the different games from the usa, and how the carts were all different colors and sizes.  2 years ago I took the plunge a got a av modded famicom on ebay.

I was really happy with the purchase despite the lack of games I had.  I figured I would take a vacation to Japan someday and actually build up some sort of library instead of buying so many games on ebay.

I had the chance to go to Japan last month and returned with many cartridges in hand.  I was really excited about coming home and trying all these new carts unitl you guess it  :bomb: the famicom stopped working.  Thats where I am today. I'll post in the help thread and see if its possible to bring this thing back to life.

Hi everyone,

first of all, I'd like to wish you a happy new year 2015 with full of (good) things (I let you fill in what you want in these things  :) ).
I'm currently living in France (very close from Paris) and I'm fond of video games.
As many members, this passion came from my teenager's period. I started with videogames on computer (Amstrad, Atari and then Commodore Amiga) before embracing the dark side (similarly to the Sith for Star Wars fans) with consoles. I have to admit that I took part (with my friends in college) with the debate in early 90: computer vs console  :-X
where we tried (at this period) to compare games per hardware on different categories: platform, beat'em all, shoot'em up, role-playing game, adventure, sport...

I was really allergic to what we called PC as alternative to Atari (520, 1040 STF, STE) or Commodore Amiga (500, 1200) (I got my first PC only in 2005 for my PhD studies...
(this  war PC vs Amiga/Atari was also memorable).

I was not fan of Nes/Famicom system because of a reluctance to the Nintendo protectionist policy (compared to Sega where several hits were released on various systems). At this period, I wasn't aware that Sega was more involved in arcade games which explains why they were easy going for releasing a conversion over home console systems.

I remember the games which make me moving from Amstrad to Atari: Ivanhoe, The Newzealand Story (I played a lot on Arcade) and North & South
                                                                                               Atari        to Amiga: R-Type (because the Atari version music was really awful, hugely difficult because of not optimized   
                                                                                                                                 collision mask
                                                                                               Amiga     to Sfc: Fatal Fury Special, Street Fighter 2, Turbo
                                                                                                Amiga    to Pc Engine: Legend Hero Tonma, Senshi Spriggan, Dragon Ball Z

In the meanwhile, I really felt in love with handheld console such as game-gear (especially thanks to castle of Illusion but also Awonder boy III release as well as GG-aleste 1 & 2, Fatal Fury special and Samurai Shodown), sega Nomad (playing Yu Yu Hakusho Makyoto Issen with multi-tap - not convenient, I acknowledge - and Pc engine GT (before discovering Pc engine LT on 1999) playing Gunhed (I now understand why people prefer this shoot'em up to Super Star Soldier).

I knew famicom/nes 8bit but I wasn't happy to see how expensive the games were and how protectionnist Nintendo was with respect of its action against "clones" on computers such as Great Giana Sisters (for those who don't know, this link could help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vWUzQiQUY0 ). I think I had the sould of people intended to "share" (maybe due to the fact that for computer fans, games were "disk duplicates" even if I bought some original games: Toki, Shadow Dancer - I'm huge fan of arcade coin's up especially Shinobi 1, Double Dragon, Operation Wolf, Dragon ninja, Newzeland Story, R-Type, Willow, Final Fight, Gang Wars: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNYh41KUnaY

I loved the famicom games later (compared to early consoles in 1992) when I discovered in 1999 the famicom clone handheld GameAxe! My collection started from Captain Tsubasa & & 2 (I love the anime which was broadcasted in France manytimes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JEDe2jWS3O4&list=PLAzo_S-1qqn0a72fPsz5Nsebjp_X9W0Bk ). My "inheritated habits" from other systems made me collecting interests for platforms like Rainbow Islands, Newzeland Story in Eur/US/Jap depending on their availability (for example: Newzealand Story was never released in Japan) but specific games which were dedicated to famicom (Super Mario Bros 1 even if I have to admit my preference to 2 and 3 because of the non linear approach of the game).

I discovered later hidden good famicom games (compared to sfc, MD or pc engine hucard & cd  I know better) and I have to recognize that I globally love this system because of the huge list of very good action (platform & shoot'em up) games. I had this siilar feeling with Sega MD and pc engine where a significant number of games are "basically" very good. I was deeply pleased to see it was possible to close the capability of a Super Star Solder shooting game on famicom with blade Buster -with similar music for stage 1 if you notice it (not the same level but the same spirit and the same music):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WtX91vzPAo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtqqFhbGjJ0

If I have to finish my presentation of myself, I would say that I love to ask questions on videogames so that I increase my knowledge and I discover more and more unknown (unreleased or released) and make my interest for these retro systems "still" alive here is a top 10 list of famicom games I love:

Summer Carnival Recca
Super Mario World (hack)
Kage
Gunnac
Super Mario Adventure (hack Super Mario 3)
Turtles: the Arcade Game
Akumaju Densetsu
Super Robot Taisen 2
Zelda 1
Gradius 2: Arcade (hack of Gradius 2)

Hello there. I am a Japanese Famicom enthusiast (collector and vendor) that are looking for similar minded people. Right now i am living with my wife in Shenzen China, and i gotta say that the second hand markets are really something to look into, although I think that Taiwan was the best place I ever went to when it comes to second hand shopping of Famicom stuff (except Japan of course).

Anyway, i hope that you accept me and my bad English for what I am and for what it is. Have a nice day everybody!!!

Hey all,

Recently bought an rf famicom. Wanted one for a few years and currently have binary land.

Loving it so far :)

My gaming preferences vary. I enjoy c64, snes, gamecube, handhelds, PC and 360.

Bit of a cheapskate tho so will never pay too much for a game, which makes some out of my reach (fire emblems I'm looking at you!)

Anyway, enjoyed browsing for a couple of weeks, great site.

Cheers,

Second hand shopping in Taiwan for retro games is dead.  It was dead for awhile, but just over the past three years it became even deader.  I went out the other night and I discovered the old game shop was turned into a bakery recently...not that they had anything worth getting anymore anyway.

Hello,

I was offered a Famicom a year ago and a few carts. Although I can't say I was ever interested in the NES when I was younger, the form factor of the FC and its colourful carts attracted me to the point where I wanted to know more about the platform. I bought an N8 and tried a couple of games. I was surprised to find lots of amazing titles and a very active community of players, developers, collectors.

I now have an AV Famicom that I'm planning to RGB mod, and I am considering buying some affordable titles that I would like as cart and not just a file on a flashcart.

That's it :)

Hello! New (soon to be) Famicom owner here :-[...
I've been gaming since the mid 90s. First system owned was the Virtual Boy, which i've enjoyed very much so despite giving me massive headaches. Throughout the years, i've amassed quite a collection of gaming hardware. With a newly owned piece of  gaming history added to my collection. I'd figured i should join the proper and most knowledgeable community. Where i can find anything i need to know about the Famicom.

The Virtual Boy was a wonderful thing. I think i was about ten at the time, and this was about the time the virtual boy met it's demise. So my parents bought it for like $150.00 usd in 97. I played VB Mario Tennis and  the Japanese version of Vertical Force  every day, giving myself such a headache. But I think playing that for such an extended period of time may have made easily adjust to the 3ds.

I'm not here to buy anytime soon I've checked out tenso & amazon.co.jp and other places
but for now I'm  just here to gather info and show some love
to fellow FC people and gain insight from collectors who have been at it longer than me

hell I don't even own a famicom yet...
I've been hunting down a boxed AV famicom for myself

I found one on evilbay which is boxed (yey) lovely matching serial manual & bags for the console & controllers
the games listed weren't very nice so I've messaged the seller and asked if he is able to swap out the games bundle
...

so a little about me?
I started collecting games in october last year
I found my original NES fixed the 72pin (boiling it & rebending the pins)
got all my games & filled in the spaces with games I had lost & played

after the nes got cleaned I filled my collection with other consoles

you name most common consoles (excluding new gen) I probably have it

since I only started in October I've got a lot of catching up to do
I'm sitting on many many games

prized parts of my collection are my  boxed super famicom (no manual or psu) but I'm in the UK so megadrive mk1 psu works fine
modified snes (50/60hz) (pal/ntsc)
modified megadrive 50/60 pal/ntsc & overclocked reshelled into a japanese MD shell with a mk1 megaCD & everdrive for bios loading & saves

and a complete boxed version of super mario world for the super famicom

anyway thanks for having me

I posted this in the wrong section before sorry deleted that post and moved it here :)

Hi!
I have been collecting since for about seven years now!

I found this site while looking up a weird multi cart I found.

A little about me.

Born and raised in Alexandrovsk, Russia
Moved to the United States at 14.

Loves video games and anything about video games!

I might sell here from time to time. Probably every Saturday since I go looking that day.

A lot of weird little games around where I live!

Wonderful site

Yo

I'm Luke from Sydney. I started collecting Famicom gear because of the lower entry price, and found out that I sure as hell made the right decision. I picked up a Twin Famicom on eBay while looking for a NES, and grabbed it for about the price of a non-working NES with Salamander. I bought a sealed copy of Metroid and a beat up copy of Zelda (with the write protect tabs knocked out... but easily fixed with the write protect tab from a 3.5" floppy) and pretty much sat content with it. After a short break from uni work I decided to look more into some NES/Fami games I never got to play and I signed up here looking for them!

I'm mostly looking to buy games I actually want to play, i'm not a hardcore collector and am definitely NOT looking for a complete collection. I generally steer clear of repros, unless they are something very rare like Recca (looking for a repro of this  ;)  ) . I have a bunch of pirate disks sitting around, so if anyone is looking for a 'NINJENDO' or 'NINFENDO' disk be sure to let me know.

After being a Commodore 64 gamer for so long the Famicom keeps on surprising me. With my electronics workbench set up, my Hakko blazed through a broken FC I grabbed and modded for AV, I have found a love for the simplicity of the Famicom. I'm planning on toying with an old wireless NES controller mod, but am going to try and transmit the Audio from the Controller 2 Mic as well. I've mocked up some boards in Eagle so let me know if you are interested. I still have to go through the old source code and add the Audio Packet Transmission, but i'm sure a few months of tinkering will help.

Glad to be aboard

Also, I like games. Yeah, that's a thing. My two favorite systems are the NES and the PS1. I also like apples. Don't ask me why I said that. I just like apples.

Hey guys!

New here, from the Netherlands, originally from the Caribbean.

Originally started collecting local games, but quit soon after noticing everything looked worse/played slower than I remembered.

This led me to importing stuff soon enough and before you know it I was hooked on all the unique and different (and often hell of a lot cheaper) stuff from Japan. Some time ago I found this place and since I'm pretty much only collecting Famicom/Super Famicom stuff these days and was looking for a good online community to take part in I figure'd I was at the right place when stumbling across this site!

Already enjoy reading all the articles/forum posts and hopefefully there's a lot more where that came from.

Cheers!  ;D

Hello!

Oh I like this icon  :bub:

I joined the other day, and have been lurking a little. I remember playing SMB on a mate's NES back in the day, and those PlayChoice machines, but never owned one. Have more recently been playing Ultimate NES Remix and some VC games (SMB, Balloon Fight etc) on my 3DS, and been getting the urge to play some of them on the real hardware.

Wasn't happy about NES prices on ebay, started eyeing up the Famicoms, I love the look of the original model, but the budget got extra tight so for now I've grabbed a shonky PowerJoy for a few quid ;D The supplied pirate cart sadly doesn't have Balloon Fight but it has the marvellous Pandamar hack of SMB, and some other great games. Will keep me going for now until I have more cash to splash...

Hey fellow famicom owners,

My name is Grant and I've recently gotten the following, mostly off of eBay, and I should be getting it here soon!

Famicom HVC-101 with two official dog bone controllers
Bomberman II
De Block
Final Fantasy I&II
Final Fantasy I&II (I'm trying some mods so I got double of these)
Final Fantasy I
Final Fantasy I
Final Fantasy II
Final Fantasy II
Final Fantasy III
Final Fantasy III
Super Mario
Super Mario III
Quarth

I actually just acquired an NES-101 top loader last week and so far I have Tetris and Tengen Tetris for it, however I wanted to get some games to play with my kids like Bomberman II which is 3 player, but the US version of the game is way too expensive, where as I paid $6 for the Japanese version.

Long ago I was a Nintendo collector and then I got out of it, now that I have changed jobs etc, I finally have some time to be collecting again so I'm looking forward to growing my collection and contributing!

Thanks
Grant

Hi there!

Finally decided to de-lurk this forum after some while.

Been into videogames for about as long as I can remember; the NES was my very first console, back in 1987.

My main focus is on Japanese 16 and 32 Bit systems and arcade hardware. However, a couple of years ago I decided to get back into 8-bit and start a small but nice Famicom collection of games I enjoy.

I like anything that's arcadey and challenging, so shoot 'em ups and action platformers are my genres of choice. I also like action-RPGs though (particularly the Ys series).

My top 3 Famicom games are:



Some of you may recognize me as a regular on Shmups Forum, Gamengai and some other places.

I look forward to conversing with you guys!

Hi there. Well, I finally decided to start posting after registering a while back.

I'm just getting in to Famicom collecting. I've been in to retrogaming for ages, and finally decided to get a Twin Famicom after spending a few months yearning for one. I'm especially looking forward to getting in to collecting FDS games.

As for other games, I'm currently focused on Vectrex, SNES/SFC, Master System, and Atari (2600 and 7800) collecting.

Hmm...what else?
My other interests are photography, and architecture (which I am pursuing my masters degree in). I also love drawing and sketching.

Well, that's about it. I'm glad to be here!

Title: Re: Introduce yourself...
Post by: dreamingnoctis on March 04, 2016, 05:59:24 pm
Thanks!

My collection is fairly small, game-wise. I tend to keep things really lean and focused, just getting the things that I really want. I don't have a lot of space. Still, I have a few things I like. Some Squaresoft games, a visual novel, and a few other things. I'm looking to get more in the future.
Title: Re: Introduce yourself...

Everyone starts somewhere. I only have maybe 20 SFC games.  I collect for many different systems.

Once I get things a bit cleaned up I will take some photos. The collection could use some better shelving, so I might do something about that in the near future.

Post by: Koop on March 08, 2016, 07:13:38 am
Hey guys, been on the forums for a little bit now but I never took the time to introduce myself...

I grew up with an older brother and sister- my sister had a master system and genesis, and my brother had an NES. Through my childhood I spent many many hours playing NES games. As I grew up I eventually got a Super Nintendo for my birthday one year and it was awesome, a system of my own. Growing up I was always into video games, I've always attended game related events and love being a part of the game community. I've been part of the North East USA arcade scene, attending various east coast gaming events... It's a big part of my identity.

So yeah, I've been playing and 'collecting' games for a very long time. I had moved out of my parents home years ago but had left behind most of my games. Eventually I moved into a new apartment where I had a lot more space to keep my games- so I decided to go back home to my parents home to get my old games back... When I arrived everything was gone. Every game, every console I had left behind- was actually stolen. I can't even begin to tell you everything I had lost, but it was heartbreaking, like someone had stolen my childhood out from under me.

When that happened I was pretty pissed... I wanted my games back, you know? Unfortunately I was pretty much out of luck when it came to getting my original games back. So I decided to start searching. I started locally, joining local facebook game groups and flea markets. I learned very fast that the market for old games had changed, things were ridiculously expensive now. $30+ for a copy of legend of zelda? That makes no sense to me. There were people at flea markets arriving at 6AM just to comb over the whole lot and find games to resell, it was disheartening to say the least. So I decided to look in other places, more facebook groups, forums, etc...

I then started looking into Famicom vs NES games in terms of cost and I was blown away. It became apparent that if I wanted to pay more reasonable (all relative lol) prices I'd want to pick up more JP original titles. I got my first famicom and some games and I just fell in love with the little guy. When I got my working disk system along with zelda and such I thought the expanded audio was awesome. As I started to pick up games from yahoo auctions or amazon and such I found they had so much character. Carts with stickers on them, kids names... It was awesome to find stuff like that, you know these games were played and loved- and that they would continue to be so.

So now here I am, a small famicom collection, a small super famicom collection, all thanks to great members on here.  HVC-Man you've been awesome as well with your translated games, it's awesome to play some english games on my AV Famicom.

At last MAGFest I actually picked up a BVM monitor and was absolutely blown away by RGB on my Super Nintendo. I knew what had to be done- PC Engine and AV Famicom needed to get RGB modded asap. Glad to say they were both being taken care of.  ;D

So now I'm pretty much just lurking/posting everywhere. In a way I am glad things happened this way. Places like Neo-Geo, pcfx forums, famicom world, shmups forum... I don't know if I would've found all these communities if not for what happened to me. Looking forward to being around these places for a while to come.

Thanks guys.

Hello everyone.

I found this site by a chance today when I was looking into what the Pulseline game line included. Got my hands on a famicom clone and a couple of games last December but didn't get the necessary power source to play it until now. Been a huge fan of retro gaming, especially oldschool Nintendo for a long time and decided to collect famicom just because I'm generally a big fan of japanese games. My collection is really small right now but I hope to improve it by a lot during the year with the help of this forum.

Just registered and felt like the first place to go was the traditional introduction thread, and here it is!

It seems like there's so many Famicom stuff (abundant copies of genuine and bootlegs) compared to NES that I wanted to get one. Also didn't like how the NES is sideloading and is sort of limited in comparison. I recently started buying plenty of stuff and they're still shipping as of now so I'm passing the time on this forum during the wait.

Hello everyone, first of all, sorry for my english, long time since school.
I've been playing video games till 1982 (with my Atari 2600) and never stopped.
I played on various systems like C64, Amiga, PCE, MD, SFC, Saturn, PS1, N64, DC, Xbox, Gamecube and a few on PC (STALKER).
I'm mainly a retrogamer as i have no interest in modern games and systems anymore (don't like the way it's evolving).
Never had a NES or a Famicom and i want to learn a lot more about the system and the games as i just bought one (an av modded famicom).
See you soon !!

Hi everyone!

I'm new here (and new to the Famicom), but I've been playing and collecting video games since the mid-80's. 

Lately I've been getting into imports, something I never really did until now, so naturally I bought a red Twin Famicom on eBay.  ;D  I'm so excited for it to arrive!

Hi my name is Malcolm, and I've been collecting for Famicom casually for about a year. I don't have a ton of games, but I just got a new job so I sure will have more soon. I found this site looking for info on games and people to talk to about games, since my girlfriend can only take so much haha.  ;D

Thanks everyone, and I would love to show off my collection, even though it's pretty small so far. Just ordered a Disk system and a bunch of games, but only Zelda has arrived so far. But I'll talk about all that when I show my collection!

Hi! I'm Bert. I've been playing and collecting old games for about 8 years now, and just recently started getting into Famicom.

I would've started sooner just could never get any of the converters for NES to work  :'(

So, I ended getting an Excitebike cart with the converter inside.

Looking forward to learning more about this new interest in collecting  ;D

Hi! I've been lurking around these boards for awhile now and decided to finally create an account to give my input and ask questions. The original famicom is my favorite because it's the 1st Nintendo home console and it led us all the way to where we are today with the Switch. Glad there is a community like this on the internet and glad I can be apart of it!

Hey everyone!

Just found out about this site a few days ago as a place to find bootleg games. I got a few gameboy bootlegs as a kid and I've been interested in them ever since. Just the idea of original games using someone else's IP coming out on one of these consoles is crazy. I also like the idea of collecting the original release of something that might have multiple releases on single carts and multicarts. I've been looking to expand my collection to famicom bootlegs, but it looks like the ones I'm interested in don't show up too often (SMW, Kart Fighter, World Heroes 2 with the original art). Still, I hope to eventually get some of these and find out about ones I've never heard of too (I only just found out about Final Fight 3, so we're off to a great start)!

Hi everyone.  After 40 years of gaming, I've just bought myself my first Famicom and first games to go with it - Goonies and Excitebike, nothing ground breaking - but two games I've wanted for a long long time, I've never played them before (nope, not even via emulation).

Just waiting for the etims RGB kit to be in stock so I can tinker about properly.  In the meantime, I'll probably dig around here for an AV mod.  One of the TVs we own managed to half tune it in so I could at least test it out.

In the past I've had a PAL NES but never played it much.  I'm planning on actually playing this little beauty though.

Cheers
Pete

Hiya Folks,

I'm originally from the UK, now living in Japan with my wonderful wife & 2 cats. My wife introduced me to the Famicom and we have many games, perhaps 200 or so now including the disk system(what a brilliant little machine , I love the mechanical nature and somehow archaic technology it has, it's an experience just to use). I thought it might be fun to share some of our favourite games with you lot and share the fun of the famicom!

Our most played game is a pretty obscure one I suspect, softball tengoku from Tonkin house/ Tokyo shoseki made in 1990, a really fun and amusing little title that we found earlier this year and have been addicted to since, single player mode is kinda like most of the fami baseball games, hard to love after a while, always feels like the CPU has the advantage, but multiplayer is superb and how I think it was always meant to be played, rush to choose the best players, (hint frog is a winner on the pond stadium), some charming graphics and characters and some great little touches got to love how the team brings you a bouquet of flowers when you get a home run! we recommend you give it a go.
Another one my wife didn't know as it was after her famicom gaming time is Hello Kitty no Hanabatake(hello kitty's garden shop), this is a really fun and unique little platform game where you have to water the flowers till they bloom and produce fruit and hit the monsters with a mallet! It feels somewhat like a taito arcade game, bubble bobble or rainbow islands, but a really fun and perhaps forgotten title you might well enjoy.

Right some of the games my wife loved back when they were current and we still enjoy now are Bird Week, Onyanko town, Son Son, Ikki, ninja kun 1,2,3, route 16 turbo, Gegege no kitaro yokai daimakyo, Q Taro wan wan panic, Tokaido 53, Valkyrie no bouken amonst many more.

Disk games we really enjoy are Kaettekita Mario bros, Yuu maze, Nazo no Kabe: Block-kuzushi, the adventures of chatran and Gall force.
Anyhow just thought it would be fun to share this with you all, we have so much fun with the famicom and hope can spread the joy to others!

Best,

Cyix



Post Merge: May 08, 2019, 06:26:51 am

Oh, a couple of my favourites I forgot to mention, SD Gundam Hero Soukessen , it can be bloody hard but it's pretty fun and well worth having a look at, cheap and common as muck too!
Also Ultraman Club Kaiju Daikessen, a really fun platformer that follows the old TV theme pretty well and is lots of fun an not too hard(yes we have been watching the original ultraman 1966 series on bluray and also have ultraseven to watch too!), I'm a total sucker for kaiju stuff so these two are irresistible.

I also enjoyed the Godzilla for the famicom too, it can be a bit unwieldy at times but is a fun game to give a try, mothra should do much more damage though I think.

Heya. This is Wyatt8740 (real name also Wyatt...)

Long time lurker, long-time nesdev IRC frequenter, five-year famicom owner, but first-time poster here. I've owned four or five famicoms (all HVC-001 models), but am down to one working one and one system I'm keeping as a backup now (I kept the two cleanest ones).

(click image for full size)
(https://i.imgur.com/xOj4Byfl.jpg) (https://i.imgur.com/xOj4Byf.jpg)
I had two copies of Dragon Warrior, one of which had bad SRAM, so I used its shell for my flash cart.

I've never bought one listed as tested working, but all I've had have worked with minimal to no effort on my part regardless.

Both mine are AV modded, and my main one has had its player 1 controller cable swapped with one from an NES (with the original famicom PCB connector spliced on to the end) for extended length. I don't really plan to RGB mod anytime soon, though I have RGB CRT's, just because I'm a university student in America and that's an expensive mod to do (my CRT's were just lucky finds).

Weird thing is as much as I love the Famicom I've never actually owned one (don't hate me!)
I've owned a Super Famicom day one and am pretty much a Nintendo fanboy.
I've recently been playing fan translations of old Famicom games and it's proper got me into the scene.

Welcome all of you to Famicom World!

We often complain that many fantastic games are locked away from the rest of the world because they are only available in Japanese, but even games only available in Japanese and English (which would be the majority of games for most systems) also means a lot of people can't enjoy them.
Translating a game is no small task, especially as they need to be reverse engineered, but nowadays many classic games have been translated into all kinds of languages. Hopefully in the future, old games will be more widely available for people that are curious about them.

Pocketpingpong SFC is also a great system and one of my favorites of all time. SFC games has the benefit that they don't really age and are comparable to modern 2D games.

I basically created a bundle and chose the following games along with the machine:


I've also bought from other sellers: Super Mario Bros., Gradius and Makaimura. I made sure to select games that don't require Japanese fluency and I think that this will be enough to tide me over for a while. ;D
