That's good to see it's out of Nintendo and may get dumped soon.

Wow, that is amazing, and to have TWO in at the same time is nuts.

Hope you can get them

This is eerily similar... (if he says that one more time I'm going to go punch him in the face)

Seriously though, this is amazing. It exists! Best of luck aquiring it.

If it get dumped, it wont be easy to make since it uses MMC5 mappers. Unless you can use Laser Invasion.

Also how'd these guys get into Jerry Seinfelds apartment?

Please dump this. Not necessarily publicly, but please dump this while the bitrotting didn't get to it yet.

I remember this being teased with Earthbound 25 years ago. I hope it gets the treatment of public release as I've been curious how it plays.

I can't believe my eyes. I didn't think that game would ever be found. I remember playing Earthbound on the NES back in 2009, such a fun game. At the time I knew about Nintendo's other big canceled first party game, SimCity NES, but it was as good as gone.

I really hope this game gets released online, I really want to play it.

Watch the save battery be just for show and instead it's got 100-character-long passwords to note every detail of someone's cities.

Considering how stripped down and sluggish the SNES version is, I can only imagine this one is phenomenal! LOL! There's likely a good reason it never saw a release.

In our interviews with some former Game Play Counselors for the Mother to Earth documentary, it was too much for the Nintendo. But that doesn't tone down my excitement. I'm pumped to see what it does!!!
 

-------------------------

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at the Let's Play Gaming Expo last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Oh, my WTB thread is very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, Richard craniums - they all adore it. They think it's a righteous thread.
I'd also like to add that I've got my father's gun and a *scorching* price guide for aftermarket Nintendo games.

Interesting! So a few questions: 1)What is the game like of course? fun, easy, hard... mostly about the fun part? 2)Complete in any way shape or form? That is, is there a beginning and ending or some sort of goal (which is in my opinion basically an ending)?

3) Are there gifts, like on the SNES? Or is it more like the PC version?
4) Does the million dollar code work? Shift+FUND?
5) Can we get a Megalopolis?

I think it'd be safe to say it's more like the SNES version than the DOS original.

Prototype cartridges are made of reusable parts. There were few reasons to keep them, many reasons to reuse them for other games, and zero reasons to destroy them.

I thought the SNES game was just an upscaled revision of this game. That's why I'd like to see it, for the limitations, what MMC was used, chip sizes, and the changes and omissions.
