    I work in a school, I am one of only 2 men, so talk of gaming is hard to get. I've been working on it though, and thanks in no small part to the Wii, its been getting alot better, and last week I was telling some of the women I work with how as a boy I'd had a Mega Drive and a SNES. But they took up to much room, so my parents had made me give one away. As I had less games for it, I gave the SNES away, what I fool I was. I've wanted one back ever since.

    Anyways, someone I was talking to said "oh, I have one of those in the loft I think, my brother gave it me for the girls, but they never used it. If its there, you can have it"

    A week passed by, and I forgot all about it, not expecting anything to happen, and she turned up this week with this beauty.

    It has some yellowing, but hell, it was free.

    I posted on another forum about it, and someone sent me a free Street Fighter 2 cart too! [​IMG]

    Looking on ebay, and I think next month, after I've been on holiday, I'll add a few games to my collection.

    When my brother saw it, he was amazed it was in a box, with all the instructions. As was I [​IMG]

    I know how you feel. Some weeks ago I bought me a Megadrive with Sonic 1-3. Then I bought S&K (with nice old school poster) and SFII...

    Gotta love these old beauties [​IMG]

    I think you better buy the lady something else then a wii game to say thanks.
    (Ok it depends if there girls want a cheap wii game, but if i where you i would buy something for the lady and not some game)

    PS: All you are missing now is a nice CopyBox for the Snes [​IMG]

    That just reminded me I DO have a Snes on my wardrobe that's not even mine, a friend lent it to me quite some time ago and I haven't even plugged it in yet [​IMG]

    I'll give it a try anytime sooner. I didn't got all that motivated because there aren't many games with it (There's a Kirby Super Star, but it doensn't work in the console. WHYYYYY?? :~ )

    Sounds likes something you'd use to make backups.

    edit: according to google it's like a flashcart, or something

    Ah, I'd seen about them before, they use floppy disks to play roms, I'd rather stick to original carts, I have roms on my xbox, PC and PSP.

    Cartridge consoles still seem a bit magical to me, maybe its the none moving parts inside.

    I've got a snes too , and I've got a pretty small but good collection , I think :

    Mario kart.
    Mario Allstars.
    Yoshis Island. (one of my mothers favourite games , she played it a lot when I was younger. [​IMG])
    Another Mario game I think ... I'm not sure.
    F-Zero (good times , good times ...)
    Some creeppy game where you can paint pictures.
    Then some platformer for the hardcore people (I've never been able to get past some level)
    Some Disney platformer which even has coopmode. [​IMG]
    And some Game which I don't know what it is but I'm too lazy to fetch my games. [​IMG]

    Yeah I know , I'm missing Zelda and I'm missing any of squareenix Rpgs but they weren't released over here. [​IMG]

    Enjoy your SNES [​IMG]
