I would go out to get retro games at the store here, but why leave the house to buy retro games when they're cheaper on ebay?

I can't see any GameStop I've ever been to having ROOM for *all of that stuff* in the store...

Didn't the article state it will only sell them online?

I'm happy about this since the nearest retro gaming store for me is an hours drive away.

Maybe I can find a working copy of Sonic Adventure 2(Dreamcast). XD

None the less, pretty cool.

Might let me finally find a copy of Skies of Arcadia that isn't $30 or 60 miles away. Otherwise probably not hugely interested.

$30 doesn't seem unfair for SoA.

It's fair in terms of price/length, sure, but I'm not paying $30 for a used game that's more than a decade old and for a legacy system. I'm reluctant to pay that for new games.

I saw Mega Man 5 priced at $99 at the local shop the other day. That game isn't even good, relative to others in the series.

I could argue against the popular opinion hierarchy of the NES Mega Mans at length but I don't have the time.

But I'm kind of excited that Gamestop is gonna have Dreamcast games, because I have a Dreamcast but no games for it.

If we're being real, MM1 is the worst in the series with only 6 bosses.

Basically all Mega Man games on the NES are entirely the same with very slight changes. I'd say five and six are the best considering they have cooler power-ups and have a less unrelenting difficulty curve.

I liked 6 least when I played them all on GC because I never felt challenged.

^Did you play 1-5 beforehand? If so, then that's probably why.

So you have a Playstation 3? :P

Speaking of, I finally picked up Mortal Kombat Gold. Most glitchy game in the MK series to date, although the Steam version of MKX may change that.

Also, nice to see this. Maybe they'll have the disc only of Sonic Adventure 2 eventually. Then again, I don't know if I have the proper case...
