well that's $100 down the drain.

So I was playing Chrono Trigger on my shitty american SNES when it suddenly died. I was left chrono triggerless for 3 months until I got my japanese super famicom which cost me another $180. is playing chrono trigger really worth that much?

Oh and if any of you ever want to buy a SNES to SFC adaptor make sure you get a PRO action replay 2. Those shitty chinese clones destroy your connectors.
oh yeah by the way. Doovy & Co. are not gone. After all... I am Doovy and Forunner is still here.

$180AUD is about £71GBP, so I would say that is a waste of money. There is a shop in my town that still have a bunch of SNES'. They're about £16 each.

Stupid financial meltdown. How is it that the US dollar stays strong while the value of all of the other currencies fall when the US is most affected by the crisis?

I checked again just now and apparantly $100AUD is now only £38GBP. Either I clicked the wrong currency exchange rate or something is really fucked up.

As much as I like Chrono Trigger, it's not worth it.

Yeah but I like to play games on the original console. It doesn't feel the same playing it with an emulator.

Speaking of wasting money on games. Star Ocean for PSP.

I hear the game has been completely updated in terms of graphics, storyline, gameplay, etc.

And yet, I'm reluctant to go out and buy a new psp game, when I could just play the original with an emulator.

Opinions?

Instead of wasting money on crap you don't need, spend money on crap you do need.
