Spent way more than I wanted too today, but I had a spontaneous need for hardware.

Is that table-thingy Famiclone any good?
I always see it in one shop, but can't make my mind up if I really want it...

The Tabletop Famiclone seems competent enough. If you power it on without a cartridge it has a tetris game that can be played alone, against a computer, or with another player.

I only tried one game with it real quick, but it functioned as hoped.  The controllers are kind of small so not quite the comfort of a typical Famicom/nes pad, but not terrible either.  The Dpad felt alright.
I might have to try it again later with a different game.  Onyanko Town isn't as responsive as something like Mario.

This one didn't come with an AC adapter, but accepts the Famicom adapter and can also take batteries.


I'd like to try out the TV Game 6 but I need an RF adapter or something. Unless the single output wire can be plugged into an a/v video port instead of the funky UHF/VHF box. Nice and clean, you'd never think it's going on 40 years old. The battery compartment is kind of corroded though... Surprised anyone would even use batteries.

Pleasantly surprised when I noticed my New Famicom retains the accessory port.  Looks like I won't need to buy an older one in order to try out these 3D glasses.  Does the US top loader have the accessory port too?  Crap, and I was holding out on Arkanoid 2 with special controllers because I thought my system wouldn't play it.

That is definitely a nice haul, Tappybot!  I'll be sad when you leave Japan and won't have any more of these shopping tales to share (I love seeing stuff like this)!

The TV game 6 looks really cool, I like the box.  I'm curious about how the 3D system works too, I've never seen one before.

You don't specifically need a pre-Famicom RF switch from Nintendo for this to work.  If you have any "manual" RF switches (ex: Atari 2600 RF switch), those will work too.

I had one of those myself, but the controller is quite bad and it doesn't work with many games. It is also made out of very cheap plastic.
Other than that, it is okay.

That's an awesome price for a CD-I. Did you get any games and/or the controller with it?

Doesn't work with many games?  That's no good  Gamer  Undecided

It was only 800yen but that's still a bummer. This is actually the first famiclone I've bought.
