    Samba De Amigo This is a great Sega game that you have for dreamcast. I have a dreamcast sitting in a shelf LOL  :D

    If you really want to get retro, get yourself a famicom (nes) if you can still find it

    I've got a Sega Gamegear and a possibly broken Atari 520STe (more a computer than console but hey).
    I used to have a Gameboy Colour and Sega Megadrive, but I sokld them both a few months before they were considered "retro".
    Some of my old favourite games are Super Mario Bros, Altered Beast, Ranger X, obviously Sonic (1, 2 and 3), Streets of rage 1, 2 and 3.

    do you think it would be worth the time to grab the retro games on the wii's retro console gaming place? Like you can get gamecube game to play on wii without having to now physically get the gamecube disc in?

        I still have a working NES, with super mario bros. 1, 2 and 3. Used to play duck hunt on it, but the gun doesn't work anymore.
        Also have an old SEGA mega drive (16 bit) with Pac-mania, Sonic the hedgehog and some tetris-like game.

        Sega Mega-drive? I thought, the one before genesis, was "master system", and it competed directly with the NES?

        Or did they have two 16-bit consoles?


        Oh, and you all know what else is a great game, or more precisely, a great series, Smash brothers. heh, I had the N64 version for ages on my console and now on my emulator, but I've only seen Melee and now Brawl. Thankfully I decided to buy a GC  just for Melee, managed to get an emu running of it and I have to say it will be a nice diversion.

        ahhh, well that explains it.

        famicom? I got one of those. It's the non-American NES!!! And it's still very fun to play and it's still good.

          SNES(both my actual console and ZSNES emulator),

          • DK Country
          • Super Mario World  8)

          Homebrewing SNES is fun, but very hard(takes like 30 lines of ASM to just change the background color  :P)

          But back on subject..
          If you dont know DOS, you dont know Windows...

          Thats why Bill Gates created the Windows NT Family.

          I wish my dad was into console homebrewing. He's a pretty good ASM coder, uses at work a lot so he tells me as well as C++. That's the life of a computer engineer I suppose.

            I managed to find a C compiler made specifically for the SNES(well actually the SNES's CPU), but it had a very limited library and it only came with one Word doc as "Help" and was pretty hard for simple tasks(perhaps I'm not C literate)
