Decided to make this post as it might help people out when hunting for Nintendo carts and steer them clear from pirated ones.

The general rule of thumb is that every western Nintendo cart from the NES up to the N64 and GBA have 2 clear things to look out for.

An indented number in the label, either on the front or the back.
As well as an F(ront) or B(ack) in the plastic at the connectors.

A NES cart for example:

Details in the pictures.

#retrogaming
#Nintendo
#shareyourgames

the same rule applies for the front which will have an F, alongside a number.
On the back label of a NES cart you will find an number imprinted into the label.

@OutofPrintArchive DS games are a minefield too, although I've got pretty good at spotting fakes I think

    What's that, another 1970s Kinji Fukasaku Yakuza film with Meiko Kaji in it? Oh go on then❤️

    No idea about "Black Tight Killers" but when I read the blurb on the front of the box I just had to get it 😅

    "Black Tight Killers" dir. Yasuharu Hasebe (1966)

    Picked this up from Amazon cheap, I remember wanting to play it when it came out, but promptly forgot all about it. Was reminded the other day when the news came out about the studio closing. Feel kinda sad

    First impressions are: this is pretty good! Just about to start chapter 2

    Started on Hard difficulty and got wrecked by literally the first enemy I fought, they take a lot of hits and my aim isn't very good 😅 back down to Normal until I get a bit better...

    I couldn't be less interested in any future UBI games if I tried, they might as well go the whole way, fire all their developers and just let AI generate their games from a template

    @WanderingInDigitalWorlds that Prince of Persia game they did recently looked great, but it looks like they're not gonna make any more of that sort of thing, no sir

    COMPU73E,
    @COMPU73E@mstdn.games avatar

    @WanderingInDigitalWorlds it reminds me a bit of when EA put out Dead Space and Mirror's Edge in the space of about a year and everyone thought "oh EA are good now" and look how that turned out

    LB reminded me of that "TV TV TV sports sports sports call of duty" Xbox One reveal I posted the other day

    Never been less interested in a NEW TECH HYPE as I am with "AI" being put into every fucking thing. "Microsoft Edge; the AI browser" lol, no

    COMPU73E,
    @COMPU73E@mstdn.games avatar

    @OutofPrintArchive exactly! If anything it will make me less likely to buy shiny new thing if they announce that it's "powered by AI" or whatever

    It's anti-marketing

    Did a boss fight in Nier Automata last night, and right after it finished I had to watch it again on YouTube because the boss was saying stuff about the plot all while the fight was happening and I couldn't pay attention to what he was saying because I was too busy trying to not get killed

    This is honestly one of the weirdest most inconsistent games I ever played. Some bits of it are genuinely 10/10 and then other bits are like they let the intern loose on their first day

    Well now I'm past the awful tutorial section I'm really enjoying Nier Automata. It's one of those "how tf did they even get this running on Switch" games, like Witcher 3

    COMPU73E,
    @COMPU73E@mstdn.games avatar

    Ehh, I take that back. It seems like every five minutes this game manages to find a new way to piss me off

    Escort missions? Check
    Awful bullet hell sections? Check
    Hey let's make this section 2D side scrolling for no reason
    Same again, but this time top down, and your character is tiny!

    Ugh, there's a lot to like in this game but it's trying really hard to make me stop playing. All it needs now is a rhythm game section

    COMPU73E,
    @COMPU73E@mstdn.games avatar

    It still looks great, and the soundtrack is fantastic. That's why I'm still playing but dunno for how much longer I can stick it out
