  1. Nice buy. I was finally pressed into action and bought 13 3DS games yesterday. Mostly first party stuff I didn’t have. I was surprised how cheap 3DS stuff is, especially for Mario titles.
  2. That's my copy staying sealed forever then. I also have that lamp and never opened it
  3. I'm also going to wait on this. Might even wait and see if the likes of Funstock end up with it a little cheaper.
  4. Dodging a bullet pattern that looks impossible to dodge while firing a laser that covers at least a quarter of the width of the (vertically oriented) screen.
  5. Yep, I keep mine, I think I have every box except the one for my Mega Drive, which I can hardly be blamed for, being 7 at the time. It helps that my dad is funny about throwing things away, so they all just ended up in their loft waiting for me to rescue them years later.
  6. They were out of stock all over at Christmas, but whether that's a sign of success, shipping issues, a lack of availability of the big consoles this year or a combo of all of it I'm not sure.
  7. The Space Adventure one got me. That wasn’t even considered one of the rarer, or particularly good Mega CD titles but the price on it has rocketed.
  8. Bad Dudes is probably up there as my number one “How is it so bad now!?” I loved that game as a kid, but you’re right it’s an utter turd.
  9. I feel the photo doesn’t do this one justice either. That controller is bordering on brown.
  10. https://store.nintendo.co.uk/en_gb/live-a-live-70010000050788.html It’s up for Europe.
  11. I’ve had it with Deathsmiles. As I was getting closer to my first 1CC on it zi’d play it for a couple of hours per sitting. All the bullets and pick ups stayed with me long after I’d turned the arcade cabinet off. Also had it a bit with Attack on Titan on Vita, but rather than bright colours burned into my eyesight it was more the twitchiness of movement I felt. Like I needed to rush at picking something up when there was an opening, as if I need to gas forward while a Titan had its back to me.

    Was tempted by the Limited Run version of Sol Cresta until I saw it was $50. Can get to fuck at that price, it looks a bit shit.
  13. Does he want to go back to us just having 4 TV channels?

    Tried Deathsmiles IIX again today as I saw there had been a couple of patches. Sad to report it’s still crap
  15. Have a look at Parcel2go if you know the weight and dimensions of the items. Royal Mail take the piss with anything bigger than a large envelope.
  16. The one from Play-Asia even comes with Illvelo on the same cart.
  17. Mine will be my original Mega Drive with Sonic. I got it either Christmas 1992 or 93. It came with Sonic and Mega Games I which I still have, and a carry case that is long gone.
  18. My games collection has hit critical mass and I've decided it's time for a somewhat curated set of games. I went mad during the late 2000's while living with parents but earning a reasonable salary so I've got piles of stuff I'll either never play, or I tried and binned off because it didn't immediately hold my attention and I had thousands of other games to play. I was also guilty of buying large lots of games on eBay or Yahoo auctions over the years because it got me a couple of things I wanted a bit cheaper. This means I have a load of Japanese RPG's I am kind of stuck with. I've boxed up a fair chunk of the stuff I don't want including a lot of the import stuff and some PAL duplicates. I'm planning to sell everything I don't want, but this is the part I find daunting. I don't know how I'm going to deal with selling thousands of games, especially when a lot of it is inaccessible if you can't read the text. I guess the best way it to just start slowly and get listing stuff here and on other forums with eBay as the last call when I can't get rid of any more stuff.

    If you haven't played it before I'd give it a go from the eshop first. I really liked the look of it but just didn't enjoy it at all.

    Probably for the best. I was playing Earth Atlantis on the PS4, honestly it's worth a couple of quid, but if the physical release is expensive it's a total waste of money. I'm buying pretty much any physical shooter that gets a retail release, but I wouldn't go back now and try to hunt down shite rarities

    Amazon and Thegamecollection both have Cotton Fantasy (Western release of Rock n Roll) up for pre-order.
  22. I think that is the full “set” in PAL territories. I also was trying to find out a couple of months back and couldn’t find any evidence of any other physical releases. I’m sure I read somewhere there was a third, but when I tried to find it I couldn’t. I think it was on a Reddit page or something so likely someone confused or talking bollocks.
  23. Bloody hell, if they remake rotary sticks like the old LS-30's that'll be legendary. Those things cost best part of £100 each in any sort of decent condition.
