 TOYS Game Machine 108 in 1 - New Import, In Stock $26.90

Product Synopsis 
NCS Product Synopsis 
   Japanese toy manufacturer AM Keihin releases a miniature arcade cabinet measuring 15 cm or 5.90" in height which is loaded with 108 games. Given the low price point of the product, we're going to assume that the games are execrable and the quality of the screen and  controls is horrible. Despite these assumptions however, we're going to import a few cases anyway because we're curious and hopeful.
     Two styles are available for order - a purple cabinet design and an aqua cabinet design which both contain the same games. Looking at the promotional flyer, one game appears to be a Breakout-like diversion whilst the other one might be an adventure game of some stripe. Even if the games are execrable, going through all 108 games should be somewhat entertaining.

Update September 24, 2014

NCS received the Game Machines a couple of weeks ago and have shipped all preorders. The controls consist of a 4-way joystick and two buttons labeled "A" and "B" along with a "Reset," "Start," and "Option" button across the top of the console. The "Start" button also serves as a "Pause" button during gameplay. The screen is a low-resolution LCD which does the job and the speaker is located on the back of the cabinet. The music in all of the games tend to be of the grating variety. Fortunately, there's a volume dial located on the right side of the cabinet so players can adjust the volume or turn it off completely.  

   Brief details on the games are listed below. We'll eventually get around to all 108 of 'em:

 001) F-22 Vertical shooter where targets are on the ground and airborne; power-ups are available 

002) Racing Fighter Reminiscent of Spy Hunter but without the power-up weaponry
003) Strong PJCC Push blocks in a maze to get at a red sphere
 004) Utmost Warfare Dollar store version of Galaxian

 012) Star Use a star to catch other stars while evading a trio of non-stars
 013) Danger Bridge Grant safe passage to lemming-like humans as they march down lanes
014) Fruit Gift Match falling fruit silhouettes by sliding a solid piece of fruit onto the same kinds

 Wii Official Nunchuk Controller (Black) - Sale US$10.90 Free Shipping in USA

NCS Product Synopsis 
Update: January 30, 2009
«©NCSX» Back in high school, there was a girl in Spanish class named Cassandra who the other kids looked upon as a little strange. She wore black clothes, black leggings, and black lipstick. As if to accentuate her favorite color, she also applied generous portions of eye shadow which made her appear as if possessed by the spirit of the Great Raccoon. Contact with Cass was lost after high school but we'd like to think she's visiting these pages and eyeing the new black Wii console and black accessories with desire in her heart. Repeat: Desire in her heart.

Nintendo's new Nunchuk in black is the same internally as the original Nunchuk but it's blessed with a shiny black shell. NCS recommends pairing a black Nunchuk with a black Remote for sweet color matching but if you want to be wild, connect the black 'chuk to a white Remote to bewilder your little sister and confuse the local yokels.

 Wii The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword Limited Ed. - Sale US$159.90 Free Shipping within USA

From the Publisher
One of the most storied franchises in history soars to new heights. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword shakes up the tried-and-true adventure game formula and marks a turning point for the franchise. The introduction of full motion controls enabled by Wii MotionPlus technology synchronizes player movements with Link's actions while offering the most intuitive play control of any game in the series to date.
Game Features:
» The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword boasts the most realistic sword combat of any game to date, turning every encounter into a challenge of both brains and brawn. Wii MotionPlus technology accurately translates the angle of every sword slice, effectively putting Link's blade in the player's hand. Analyzing enemy attack and defense tendencies and counteracting with precise swings of the sword provide a satisfying experience that blends puzzle-solving with a new and distinctly unique combat system.
» Explore a massive, multilayered world that seamlessly blends soaring exploration in a sea of clouds with intense ground-based adventuring that blurs the line between the main world and traditional Zelda dungeons. Link soars through the skies on the back of a noble bird and dives beneath the clouds to the continent below in an epic quest that lays the foundation for the events in the critically acclaimed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
» Prepare for intense puzzle-solving as only The Legend of Zelda games can deliver. Exploration of the forests, volcanoes and deserts requires players to think on their feet as they solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and escape deadly traps. Once they find their way to each dungeon, they are confronted by even more puzzles guarded by fiendish enemies.
» The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword redefines the traditional Zelda framework and introduces an arsenal of items, upgrades and rewards unlike any game in the franchise to date. The adventure guides players into, out of and back to dungeons and areas they've already completed. Along the way, Link gathers a massive inventory of peculiar items and resources that can be used to upgrade many of his weapons and equipment.
   The bundle ncludes The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Game, Music CD Soundtrack and Gold Wii Remote Plus w/Triforce Symbol Accessory.
