A nice lineup of classics. 2000 yen, they lowered the price!! Twinbee and Goemon never came out here.. Twinbee doesn't have any (or much) text, but Goemon probably does (if it's anything like the later games in the series). Of course, we got jacked of two titles for the first wave so go figure.

Twinbee was released here for the NES...Konami released it under the name "Stinger".

I have 4 portable Mario Bros. games.

Dr. Mario came with Wario Ware

Why get Dig Dug when you can get Mr. Driller A (import)?

Ghosts and Goblins? what about Super Ghouls and Ghosts? how about you just throw your GBA through the window out of sheer frustration right now?

...hey, same goes for Adventure Island. Why not just, as Tycho and Gabe would put it, pound some nails through your dick?

...and the rest, we'll probably never see stateside.

I forgot.. Dig Dug never came out over here either!

Superboy, these are being marketed as collectibles as part of the Famicom 20th anniversary.

Mr Driller is a TOTALLY, VASLTY different game from Dig Dug (though Dig Dug is one of the characters in it!). Have you even played it?

That's still too much IMO. They are worth about $5 to me. Meh.

Get this.. Dig Dug is Mr Driller's DAD, and the mom is Kissy, the space marine from Baraduke. Dig Dug is playable on Mr Driller G (PS1), Mr Driller A (GBA), and Mr Driller Drille Land (GC). The newer games are FULL of lilttle Namco in-jokes and cameos.

Ghost N'Goblins NES is the hardest game of all time. I may have to pick it up to relive my frustrations.

All of the games can be played two-player w/wireless adaptor. Dr Mario will be worth it for that alone.

Interesting....I was never a big Mr Driller fan even though I am a HUGE Namco fan. But the thing I am wondering is did you mean to say you can actually PLAY as Dig Dug? I would assume this is unlockable after you finish the game....Drat, I wish I liked this game enough to try that. Something about games that rely on a time limit aren't really my cup of tea though...could be because I am getting older. heh

I realize they're supposed to be collectibles...and hence the price...but still, they shouldn't gouge collectors just because they know sales will be relatively poor.
