yeah Target clearance is pretty amazing. I remember seeing Final Fantasy Tactics (PSP) in 2008 for like $5. And I recently picked up a 7" LCD TV for $32.

Yea, Target is a pretty sweet place for discounted games. So I stopped by this afternoon in hopes of finding RE Darkside Chronicles, but to no avail. I did score a couple equally cool games, though! Dragon Age Origins (360) and Rhythm Heaven for $15 each :D

:shock: :shock: Great find!

I wonder if this will work on other games. The NES is only digital, interesting what would happen on a game such as Tetris. A hopeful thought the paddle pot would also emulate left-right digital direction pad. Wiki shows Taito Chase HQ as another game that is compatible.

Maybe Thunder and Lightning?

I've never seen anything showing it works with T&L. According to GamesX the L & R are regularly encoded data sent to the deck where as the Vaus sends its information down 2 other special pins, like the way C64/Atari paddles use different pins from the stick directions so the game would have to be programmed for it and it isn't just sending pulsed L or R signals.

I do have T&L and will give it a try, but I'm pretty sure it won't work.

this is why I didn't end up getting a Vaus. I was planning to use one to play Tempest thru GBPlayer originally, but realized it wouldn't work.
