  1. Just putting this out there for anyone who might be interested. As some may know on here, I am a pretty huge retro gamer so I follow a lot of the cool shit going on within the gaming community when it comes to the retro stuff. Iam8bit is doing a re-release which is officially licensed through Interplay (the company that owns Earthworm Jim) just like they did with Street Fighter II, Mega Man X and Mega Man 2 through Capcom. I got my copies of Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X last year (I think I may have posted about it in here because I was super excited about it). So I do have some experience with their work and can vouch for them. They do some of the best work I have seen on cartridges since the SNES heyday to the point where when I opened up my carts and compared them to my older SNES game's PCBs, I was very impressed. It really is about as close as you can get it nowadays with making it as official as you can. Only 2000 copies are being made, the default cartridge color is Pink (which is cool by itself) but 100 of those will randomly be in a Cow Printed color. Both games are coming on a combo cartridge which is pretty cool too. Like last year with the Mega Man carts, they are coming with a really nice embossed tri-fold collector's box, a premium instruction manual, and retro pack ins, which last year it was posters. The price is kind of a real sticking point for most people at a nice hefty $134.99. A lot of people are having a very difficult time with that pricing, especially since the Mega Man carts they did last year costed $100 a piece (which was still too much for most people to justify) which I was fortunate enough to get as Birthday Presents from my wife. I guess the fact they are putting 2 games on 1 cart and they are limiting this to only 2000 with 1 in 20 being that cow print color is the justification of doing this. These will be very rare collectible items one day and they are something I believe any huge retro gamer or huge Earthworm Jim fan would at least want. I got lucky enough to mention it to a close friend of mine and he went out and bought it for me for this birthday. That is two years in a row that I am getting Iam8bit legacy cartridges and I couldn't be more excited. Earthworm Jim was a game that I always played with friends at their house since when I was a kid I only had a SNES. Obviously, it was released on SNES but I didn't know that at the time and it was hugely popular on the Sega Genesis. Kind of makes me wonder why they didn't do this for the Genesis but maybe it's because the Super NES was easier to do for them or the quality of the both games overall was better on SNES than Genesis. I really don't know why but it is still pretty damn cool. I didn't get a Sega Genesis until late 1996 and by that time, the Sega was largely on it's way out. I always had fun with the games and they were very memorable. Anytime Iam8bit does official re-releases I am going to try my damnedest to get them regardless of price. Like I keep telling people, it is really hard to put a price on sentimentality and I have a massive hard-on for the 16-bit generation of gaming. Here is the link to the site for pre-ordering this. Will be a bit of wait, won't start shipping until November of this year. Once again, this isn't some "Made in China" hack job or one of those cheap ass reproduction carts that you gotta worry about setting your SNES on fire. This is the real deal, they aren't officially licensed by Nintendo (but that is to be expected) but are officially licensed through the publisher Interplay, and I can personally say that they are worth the money if you are a hardcore retro gamer or Earthworm Jim fan. They will also work in clone systems too. Earthworm Jim 1&2 25th Anniversary Cart

    Twitch Thread

    Forgive me if I am not seeing a thread somewhere buried in here but figured to get one of these started. I recently started getting into Twitch within the last 6 months or so at the request of a few of my friends who are fans of it. Still don't personally get the appeal of it but I do enjoy the hell out of playing video games on there and interacting with others (mostly retro shit that is pre-2000s but I do a bit of everything). Took me awhile to figure this shit out and I finally just feel more comfortable doing what I do. My content might not be for everyone considering it is very vulgar, offensive, politically incorrect, and just sheer fucked at times but none of it is to be taken seriously. I figured since there are many of us who probably have Twitch accounts out there that we should all support each others channels. Not much of a spectator but I got no issue with giving people on here a good follow in return for me and supporting fellow Nsider/Ninfora homies. You can catch me at PixelatedMetalHead.

    Beat Mortal Kombat and Beavis & Butthead in the last few days. I am going to go ahead and claim my first Challenge with Castlevania Bloodlines since I have proof of that on my Twitch Channel for proof.

    Did a live stream of Castlevania Bloodlines on my Twitch Channel (PixelatedMetalHead is my name on there). Took entirely too long to beat that little game but it has been awhile since my last playthrough. C: 7 H: 1 PC: M: O: 8  Challenges:  Games Beaten: 1.

    Beat Final Fantasy IX at 100% completion finally. The only thing I have never done in this game (this is at least my dozenth playthrough) is get Excalibur II. I finally managed to do it in 11 hours and 15 minutes. With the Cutscenes it would have pushed it close to the 11th hour if they weren't skippable like they used to be on PS1. So that is beaten and trying to see if I can get into Dragon Quest finally. C: 6 H: 1 PC: M: O: 7  Challenges:  Games Beaten: 1. Shining Force: Sword of Hayja (3DS VC) 1/6/2019 2.

    Beat Pokemon Let's Go Eevee at the end of last month. Going to just count it now, was wanting the whole pokedex filled out but missing version exclusives and trade evolves. Think I am at around 129 or 130 caught or something like that. I enjoyed the game and found it to be just as good as the older gen 1 titles. Just beat FFXV Pocket Edition on Switch and it was pretty good for a "demake." C: 5 H: 1 PC: M: O: 6  Challenges:  Games Beaten: 1. Shining Force: Sword of Hayja (3DS VC) 1/6/2019 2.

    South Park The Fractured But Whole completed today. Clocked over 48 hours into the game. It was really fun and funny if (if you are a fan of the show that is). Never did play The Stick of Truth but heard that was also a really awesome game in its own right. May end up getting that at some point, still chugging through Xenogears but its been difficult to play anything that isn't portable as of late. Not sure what I am going into next.

    Finished Xenoblade 2's DLC or prequel (really don't consider it to be DLC since it has its own physical game. Took me 25 hours to beat with a good chunk of sidequests. It was a just as good as Xenoblade 2 and reminded me as to why I love these games so much. It also inspired me to get off my ass and play Xenogears. I sadly (and shamefully admit) that it has been on my backlog for awhile and always been a passing thought. Was overshadowed back in the day by its bigger RPG brethren like FFVII. I had heard about it back in the PS1 days when I was...13 or 14. 20 hours in on Xenogears and loving it even if it looks like pure ass on my 4K set lol (playing it through my PSTV, fuck you mini classic!) but your eyes adjust after a few.

    As far as newer systems go that they are still making games for? I own a Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, and a PS4. As far as to what to stick too, I would say most people own at least a Nintendo Switch or 3DS at this point in the game, so it makes sense to go with those, plus this is a Nintendo Forum.

    Second game of the year down with the first Shining Force. Beat it on the Sega Genesis Collection for Switch. Just as good as Fire Emblem and in some ways it is better. Found it interesting that Camelot made these games back before they did the Golden Sun titles (which are the best GBA exclusive RPGs imo). Just started Shining Force II and on a serious tactical RPG kick. C: 1 H: 1 PC: M: O: 2  Challenges:  Games Beaten: 1. Shining Force: Sword of Hayja (3DS VC) 1/6/2019 2.
