Snes Fleamarket Finds

Been a little while since the last post, but that´s because I have been pretty busy lately.

In the last 2 weeks I whas at a couple of fleamarkets looking for retro gamesystems and it was pretty decent. At my first visit I was able to pick up a SNES in perfect condition with all the hook ups including Super Mario World and Street Fighter 2 for 30 bucks.

At my second visit I found a vendor who was selling all kinds of electronics and he also had a ton of systems. But mostly just Gamecubes and Xbox stuff. But there also was a box full of NES and SNES games so I picked up Super Castlevania 4, Mortal Kombat, F-Zero, Super Star Wars, Super Return of the Jedi, and an NTSC Contra 3: Alien Wars. all for 30 bucks. I was pretty happy with that deal, especially getting Castlevania 4.

The same Vendor was also selling an Atari 2600 Junior but he was asking 40 Dollars for it and I couldn´t talk him down to a better price. But I´ll be back soon and hope to still find a couple of mroe games there.

Since I am from Austria I can´t play Contra 3 on my Pal Snes so I bought a Fire NTSC to PAL adapter today, but for some reason it wasn´t able toget Contra 3 to work. So If anybody got any tips on that I´´d appreciate it if you can tell me in the comments.

Suffocation - Mike Smith Quits...?

This was posted earlier on www.blabbermouth.net:

New York death metal veterans SUFFOCATION have reportedly parted ways with drummer Mike Smith.

Although Smith's exit from the group has not yet been officially confirmed by SUFFOCATION, the band played a couple of East Coast shows this past weekend with former member Dave Culross (MALEVOLENT CREATION, HATEPLOW) once again sitting behind the kit.

Fan-filmed video footage of SUFFOCATION's February 18 performance at Jimmy's Place in Allentown, Pennsylvania (featuring Culross on drums) can be seen below.

In a cryptic posting on his official Facebook page, Smith wrote earlier tonight, "There are not many things related to the SUFFOCATION brand I can honestly say brings me sadness. Except the lack of pride that exists within those who have the 'right' to claim the name as their own.

"This battle has been one that to any focused being should make obvious sense, but has evaded some for two decades.

"Within any foundation, the weakest link will always cause all structure to crumble.

"The one fact that keeps me at peace is the fact that anyone who has ever seen or spoken to me regarding SUFFOCATION and the industry as a whole has always left with an understanding of the level of focus and pride that I personally hold for myself, the brand that is SUFFOCATION and the genre we influence and helped create.

"As I've always said, if you are willing to put your time and soul towards anything, be willing to speak truths, fight and bleed for it, if need be."

SUFFOCATION is currently hard at work on material for the band's new album, tentatively due this summer via Nuclear Blast Records.

That sucks, because I´m a huge fan of Mike Smith´s drumming. I mean Culross is an amazing drummer too, no doubt about that, but it´s always sad when you see an original member off a band quit.
