The pins are still the same. As far as the actual modification goes, it might be better to hear from someone who can directly compare (all my game systems are currently in a different continent), but as far as I remember, if you were to get a Super Famicom to take SNES carts you would need to remove a significant amount of plastic. I feel like it's not just the bezel, but also the inside of the machine that's narrower, but I'm 100% unsure on that point.

(I don't have my Super Famicom on hand, so this is partly from memory)

So, the bad news is that while it's really easy to play Super Famicom games on a Super Nintendo, it's really hard to go the other way around. The width of Super Famicom cartridges is much shorter, so the whole bezel and slot is as well. They're shaped differently too; the SNES carts are rectangular while the front of a Super Famicom cart is curved. You would basically have to destroy a Super Nintendo cart/the console to get it to fit, or just remove and insert the boards directly. There are adapters, but as far as I know they are all made for the Japanese domestic market, so you'd have to import one. It's probably easier to get a separate beater SNES.

Edit- Oh, I missed the part where you're not interested in playing Super Famicom games. You might just be out of luck then. Maybe a SNES model 2 instead?

Suikoden II and MGS3 are desert island games for me. There's no way I could pick between the two.

Brett is actually the guy they brought in to read Ryan from Ireland's email.

I'd be interested in seeing more. I bought this game for the music, but never tried to actually play it. And now I leave in a different continent from my famicom, so I won't be trying any time soon.

The fanfiction already exists, doesn't it.

Going by the last UPF I say keep the Crichton train rolling and do Timeline. If you are so inclined you have a book, a movie, and a game to work with.

I never played the first MGO, but I spent a lot of time with the MGS4 incarnation. I had pretty much stopped playing obsessively by the time the last expansion came out, but man I had so much fun with that game. It's a shame that there's a widespread perception that no one played MGO (almost to the point that I was going to email the bombcrew to answer their question of ''Who wants another MGO''...I ended up deciding I really didn't care that much if they want to dismiss it). It really did allow you to take the freedom of action in the main game and go up against people who were all playing their own way. It helped too that the community was pretty tight, probably as a result of the ridiculous hurdles Konami made you go through to play and the fact that the PS4 was still really expensive back then; the people that were playing were really into it.

My biggest request is that they keep the reward shop updates in the English release generally close to the Japanese shop updates. Other than that as long as people are having fun sneaking around in boxes I think I'll be happy. Also singing. I'll be happy as long as I can sing.

I'm glad you mentioned MGS 4, because I was feeling like I was the only one. MGS 3 had me tear up a bit at the salute, but I was literally bawling the entire last 15 or so minutes of 4.

Other gaming moments that I can remember crying over are (I think the statute of limitations are up for spoilers on these):

-The resurrection of Crono scene as well as the credit roll from Chrono Trigger

-The death of Aeris and the ending to FF7

Huh, I guess those 4 games are about it.
