Daffy Duck: Fowl Play (GBC)

Vyo, are you comfortable using the Super Game Boy adaptor for most games?

Onto Mega Man 3 now. They really expected more of the wee NES with this one, didn't they? So many big sprites at once. So much flickering. So much slowdown...

I have Mega Man 2 and 3 for the NES. They really are a let down.

I use the Super Game Boy (SNES) for normal Game Boy games and the Game Boy Player (GameCube) for GBC & GBA games.

I prefer the Super Game Boy because the picture quality is sharper. The Game Boy Player isn't actually that great, but I don't have an alternative for playing GBC or GBA games on the TV so it has to do.

Thanks!

I was thinking the same thing about the Game Boy Player. I was thinking maybe my choice of games was the cause. I have been impressed the times that I have used the Super Game Boy.

Thanks again!

Going a little off topic here, but they do make an adapter that allows you to play GBA games on the SNES. It's a third party accessory and not sure how it would compare to Nintendo's Gamecube Game Boy Player, but maybe it has a better picture.

I didn't know about it. Do you recall a name for it?

The problem with that is it just does composite via the actual device.

Slightly dodgy RGB via the Game Boy Player is still better than composite.

I have Mega Man 2 and 3 for the NES. They really are a let down.

I've not found that. I've played X, 1, 2 and now 3 in quick succession having never really played them before, and I'm really enjoying them.

However, I can see the formula getting a bit old by 6...
