Bringing this conversation between myself and D.Lo over here from the Samus Returns thread because this is a more appropriate place. I mentioned I wanted to play through Metroid on my new FDS setup soon, which led to:
LOL, so after tracking down an RGB modded AV Famicom, an NES cart converter, FDS adaptor and the FDSStick so I can the most complete, reliable and authentic 8-bit Nintendo experience ... I am now privy to this flaw. Damn you, D.Lo! I'll just have to see how bad it is and live with it, though, because I'm not at all interested in an original Famicom with those wired controllers.
I stuck to original and tried cleaning the pins but the reliability just got worse and worse. I put in a Blinking Light Win connector and tray and it was the best thing I ever did. They are relatively cheap and easy to install would recommend.Hey guys, I've decided I want to pick a NES. I've been reading about some consoles replacing the 72 pin reader and how it ruins the cartridges with its "death grip". Is this true? Should I only look for one that's all original?
or you can get a top loader. so much easier, less maintenance.
So gents, I had an, um, interesting night with my Famicom last night. I started by playing "Gotta Protectors: Amazon's Running Diet", which is a brand new, free game to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of Gotta Protectors on the 3DS. The music by Yuzo Koshiro is top notch, and the game is actually kinda fun in a repetitive way. That being said, it's definitely NSFW.

I never understood that. I have two installed. It's more difficult to remove the carts than an OEM 72 pin but I don't find it to be a "death grip." I bought one about 18 months ago and the other last month. Every game works all the time, every time so I love mine.If you order from there now, there's no chance they send you one with a death grip, right?

Thanks for always doing this Tekno, it's such a fund thread. And speaking of, how about a cross-post??
I started Sweet Home on the NES last night. First off, I'm glad I waited on playing this until I could run the translated patch on actual hardware, because the game itself is a blast to play.
Yeah this is on my repro-list too! Where do you get the from?
Great post BTails! I love content like that. I really need to play sweet home this month but my God this month is stacked!
I don't see the appeal of repro carts when you can just buy 1 Everdrive and play all those translations.
Many people are collectors in this thread. ROMs on an everdrive don't have the same appeal to some of us. I don't do repros for the most part. There would only be 3-4 games I'd ever want as a repro, if that. An everdrive might be overkill. Just a different way to go about it, that's all.
Is that a Gundam Wing lunch box in the background?This is the one you want:
Family Computer 1983 - 1994 by the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography
It has photographs of every Famicom game box, as well as interviews with the usual gang like Miyamoto and Itoi, but surprisingly has an introduction by the late old man himself, Hiroshi Yamauchi, and it's bilingual in Japanese and English, which makes it extra desirable.
Thanks, checking this out now.
About repros, I actually own the Super Famicom-version of Ogre Battle, but the seller had patched the cart with a translation patch. Meaning my Super Famicom-game is the original - but still possible to play for me without knowledge of japanese. But i guess the data on the cart is altered, making it slightly less genuine. Still a good way to do it imo.
