I haven't rewatched Ep. 3 since I saw it at a midnight screening opening night.  At the time, I really didn't like it.  My biggest gripe with the prequel trilogy was (and still is) that there just wasn't enough actual space combat in STAR Wars.  The Battle over Coruscant started quite nicely, but we quickly lost that to the Jedi rescue mission.  I look at ANH and ROTJ as doing it right, where there were cuts to the bigger battle interspersed with the close-ups and human moments. 

In the years since, as The Clone Wars has come out and they've filled in a lot of detail about Anakin's fall, I figure I'll appreciate it a lot more when I eventually get around to a rewatch.  It's just too bad the Clone Wars series came AFTER the films.  As an independent trilogy, it still gets a big "meh" from me. 

Also, The Phantom Menace is my favorite of the three.  :P

Spelunker wasn't only an LED game, they released two versions of it, one with LED and one without.  The ones without LEDs are a lot rarer.  Basically late in the game's release they realized the kids weren't that into the LEDs and they made production of the cards expensive so they ditched them.

I did a post about them a few years ago on my blog, they did the same with Sqoon, 10 Yard Fight and Zippy Race:

No Famicom game will ever be garbage. Good luck with the pursuit.

The game looks pretty good. I'm very surprised their making a sequel to that game, I wouldn't of thought it. Great news though. The trailer on YouTube also looks great.

Recently I came across a pretty strange multicart I was hoping to add to my collection, I have no idea what the cartridge itself even looks like though since I only saw it in a video played as a rom. I've attached a few screenshots to show what the menu looks like along with a few of the hacks.

If anyone here has the multicart & is willing to sell it or can help me find out more about it I'd greatly appreciate it  :D Thank you!

I don't think I have any extras of that for sale, but I'll check. I definitely know that multicart. At worst I can at least provide a picture.

Thank you, a picture would still help me :)

Cool stuff! You have one listed as Ninja Jajamaru-kun - it's actually the first Ninja-kun game. Also, Combat = Field Combat.


Thanks, I always get those names mixed up!

Going from being overprotective of Padme to killing a bunch of innocent children is a pretty big turn.

At least when he killed the Tuskens it was out of hate in the spur of the moment for what happened to his mother.

With the younglings, it was because Darth Mentor told him to. All we see from Anakin is distrust in the higher ranks.

I just can't get immersed in this character. I could understand Anakin going out and killing the separatists, because it would end the war once and for all.

They should have just had the kids killed off some other way: clone troopers? Darth Sidious himself? The writers even had to nerf Padme so Anakin could go to Mustafar. The Padme in Episodes I & II would have questioned his actions at that point. And perhaps not be so surprised that her fellow Nabooian who dismantled a Republic isn't such a good guy after all when Obi Wan tells her.
