    Over the weekend, I went to this great store I've probably mentioned before called Buybacks (they sell used DVDs, CDs, Games, and more)and found a couple of awesome games for my Genesis.

    Battle Toads (Complete with Instructions and Box, $13.99 at Buybacks)



    My cousin got this one for Christmas one year, the same year I got my original Genesis. I remember playing Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Battle Toads all night!! It was the hardest game ever back in the day and still is but I had to have it in my collection for nostalgic reasons.



    Goddamn Turbo Tunnel...

    Space Harrier II (Complete with Instructions and Box, $5.99 at Buybacks)



    I didn't play this game during the original run of the Genesis but it was a launch title and a very good one at that. I already have a few launch titles like Sonic The Hedgehog, Altered Beast, Rambo III, Columns, and Toejam and Earl. This game plays a lot like the original Space Harrier and controls a lot like Star Fox in my opinion. It's challenging and fun.

    Awesome finds! I used to have the Genesis version of Battletoads. since I loved the NES version so much I naturally thought the 16-bit version would be just as awesome only better. Well, it had slightly cleaner GRAPHICS, but I actually preferred the audio in the NES version. I mean, they cut out that kickin' beat you would get when you paused the NES version! That was one of my fave bits...

    The Battletoads cartoon sucked. It should have rocked so hard, but it didn't. Thank god it only lasted ONE episode.

    I agreed that the cartoon was horrible but I still the think the Genesis version had better music. My favorite Battletoads game was always the arcade version with the blood, gore, and awesome graphics. I still play it on MAME all the time.

    Oh, the Genesis version music was good, for sure. It was basically the same as the NES music but with the cleaner Genesis sounds. It was just some of the little changes (like the lack of pause music, the bassline not being quite as pronounced in the Genesis version, etc.) that annoyed me, since I was already so familiar with the NES version.

    Hell, I'd like to say almost all of my Genesis games were good finds. I almost peed my pants when I found a copy of ClayFighter at the local game store. I also have Cool Spot, Bubsy 1 (in the box and with instructions), Ninja Turtles Tournament Fighters, Zombies Ate My Neighbors, and Michael Jackson's Moonwalker...all of which I got for less than $3 each.

    I'm still on the lookout for Theme Park and Ristar, though.

    I nearly cried when I found Toejam and Earl at Big Fun in Cleveland, OH. I was just about to buy the game off of eBay when I decided to go this shop and spend my money on something I wouldn't have to wait a week and a half for in the mail (waiting for auction items is hell!!!!!). This store really had everything from the 70's, 80's, and 90's. It was a Retrojunker's paradise...and then I thought I could've been hallucinating, but I saw Toejam and Earl in a display case in the video game section. It was as if God had shined a light down upon it and made the angels sing for me. I simply couldn't believe my eyes. Then I asked the clerk if I could see the game. I was as happy as the first time I got a lap dance. It was only $18 plus tax. I had just got paid at work and just because the game didn't have a case wasn't a good enough reason to pass the game up. Then I invited my cousin and fellow former Toejam and Earl cohort, Justin over to bask in the Funkotronian nirvana...

    I ended up saving money by buying TJ&E at Big Fun. The game was $18 vs. the average $25-$55 depending on how complete the game is. Don't even get me started on shipping...ugh!!!! To paraphrase Willy Wonka: "YOU [SAVE] NOTHING!!!" I only use eBay anymore if I'm desperate for something. I get more of a thrill out of hunting for the games I want instead of just clicking "Buy It Now!"

    I would get more of a thrill out of finding games if there was anywhere to find them.
