The special levels in S. Mario 3D Land are insane. After you beat the game you unlock another 8 worlds. So far I played two stages and in the 1st one you get the legit Tanooki suit replete with statue ability. In the 2nd one a weird little poison ghost mario is chasing you throughout trying to kill you. At the end you get a star and murder that fuck.
I have 130+ lives at this point. I wonder how rough things get?
Yoda quit making me want to buy stuff that I can afford but don't have the time or mental real-estate for :(
Anyway I got up to level 5 of the Africa route in Super Hang On. 4 was a lot easier than 3. I reeeeally want Outrun 2006 now, these kind of games are fun :(
Also found some mini wall squids in Zelda.

I got the IREM Arcade Classics pack from Greenman because I like R-Type Leo and Gallop and wanted to have legit copies of them. Problems?
Th sound emulation is screwed up. A lot. And Dotemu never provided a patch which they were, uh, promising to provide. Yeeeeah.
Meanwhile whatever emulator Sega's using for their Genesis games on steam is fine. Maybe less than robust in some ways but it's not /broken/ at all.
