The AV Fami is a nice system. The picture is SO much clearer than on the original FC.
Out of curiosity, if you don't mind, what did you pay for it?
$140 shipped. There was only one boxed out on eBay at the moment, and I couldn't be bothered paying more for a Famicom "1"
Yay, AV Famicom! I wish I had one of those - it looks cooler than the original model Famicom, and the fact that it has AV hookups is great.
I've heard some good and bad about the A/V FC.
Interestingly, I have two of them and the box is slightly different for each.
I picked up Haunted Casino for the Saturn about a week ago.

No microphone on the controllers and some third party controllers will not work on it,such as the joyball and the XE-1 Pro fc joystick.

Those downsides doesn't really matter to me at all. I _needed_ an AV Famicom because RF never really "made it" in Norway (and other places in Europe). The NES was the first "real" console we got, and it came with AV jacks. Only the really old TV's (Atari, Commodore 64 era) had RF jacks.
By the way, are Famicom regarded as an expensive console to collect for? Seems like most of the games I initially want are in the $50-$100 range. And why can't I find Crisis Force or Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti ANYWHERE?

You might be right, but I still think some of the prices for games you'd expect to be fairly cheap and common, are too high.
Anyway, recommendations on good and cheap games are most welcome, as I've just entered the Famicom scene, and only know of the real "must-haves".
Where!? I actually found one on eBay. $79, though!
Got Mighty Final Fight and Akumajō Special: Boku Dracula-kun for the Famicom today.
Also, Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti is on its way thanks to Ed Obscuro. Thanks alot!
got the PS3 Bayonetta yesterday. can't put it down!
yea, i know it comes out here next month. whatever.
i do find it weird that all the menus and dialog are in english.
for some reason Enzo sounds like Joe Pesci. i'm sure it was intentional though.
I found this today for... a really good price
Not sure if I'll keep it or sell it... but I'm leaning towards keep.

Whoa, what IS that?! A... handheld PCE? I've never seen it before. And is that a TV tuner next to it? You could watch TV on it?! COOL!!
Nah, it's the other way around, as far as I know. Can't remember exactly.
Recently picked up Judgement Silversword from an online store in Japan. I <3 Google translation tools. It finished my "trilogy".
