Anyone still playing the 8/16-Bit Games?

Either Real Hardware or Emulation

Of course, I'm playing Super Mario RPG on a real Snes, have finished it once before on Snes9x. Also I have been trying to fix a Dreamcast and the disc that I was using to test it was NesterDC so I spent more time playing Nintendo games than actually looking at the issue

I've been playing a lot of N64/SNES lately, not much NES though I do have a lot of titles I need to play again.

As much as I love some of the newer/current generation of games, the 8/16 bit era will always be the best one to me (probably because this is what was available when I was a kid). I always end up going back for more, to re-play titles I've already completed and to explore titles I missed when I was a kid. I get a lot of retro gaming/emulation in on my OUYA and JXD handhelds these days. I just finished my umpteenth runthrough of the first 3 Ninja Gaiden games on the NES recently. Pure bliss.

Several weeks ago I was playing a TMNT and Tetris carts that my brother in law gifted me on my vations, and I am thinking on finishing NBA Jam T.E., also real hardware. In the other hand, do you know any way to fix NES dead cartriges? Man, I cry every time I see those classic NES games, some of them in great physical condition but do not work.

Clean the cartridge edge connector pins with a q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol. If using a front loading NES, make sure you have a good-working 72 pin connector.

ragged quitted Ninja Gaiden after getting to the last boss twice. It is not fair at all.

Heh he I have done so and even opened the cartriges to clean them inside and no results, it seems the sulfate they had penetrated other circuits I cannot reach. About 72 pin connector I have the one inside the console that still works well, one for backup and another one sealed, but that is not the problem.

Can always try disabling the lockout chip in the console. That fixes alot of peoples issues.
