  1. I saw the Bounty Pack in a HUGE box a few months bag at the start of the car boot season and the guy wanted a fiver! I had no idea how much they were worth at the time and I did not buy it! I went to a car boot this morning(Wedensday) but there was nothing about,i got:- PS2 Singstar with 2 mics for £5,Fzero Snes minty frssh for £3 and Crash and Burn video(big robots and stuff,can sell ok). This is my first car boot this year i have not come back with a PS1 game! Most overpriced item of the day:- FIFA 97 on PS1 for £4.50!
  2. This dealer guy does Lego,Warhammer,Playmobile,Syvanian Families so he has his finger in a few pies. I do not mind buying from him cos he is still cheap if he has a good game!
  3. Saturdays was a disaster(some guy had boxed NES,32X and Megadrive stuff at around £10 each) but i started really well on Sunday getting Disagea on PS2 for a fiver(not on pic).Saturday i did get Shadows Of Memories for £3 on PS2. Yes both Castlevania games,both complete! Got Chronicles for £2 and SOTN for £2.50.The SOTN was from a game dealer too(he goes round buying all the £1 or less games and sells them for £2.50). Was so pleased and glad i didnt pay £50 off some guy the other week who was selling his collection. Also not on pic i got a Sonic pinball game(not video game) which was not like a usual crappy pinball game but it vibrated and had 2 sets of flippers and a score bit too.Also got centipede board game and Donkey Kong for 50p each!
  4. I had a "rootin' tootin' car bootin' weekend with Saturday,Sunday,Monday And even today(Wednesday). Saturdays was a bit of a let down with a few PS1 games as usual,although nothing great. Sunday was HUGE,at least 300 stalls and got some serious stuff, Boxed Nes Action Set minty fresh with 4 games including mint Kirby £25 Loads of PS1 games no more than £1 each(FFVII and IX,Res Evils,etc) PS2 FFX and guide and Silent Hill guide Megadrive Games x 5 for £5(mint condition although nothing great).He started his prices at £8 each! what a dick. 2 x N64 and games and loads of accessories £10 the lot. Plus other bis and pieces Mondays was awful and so bad i went around buying stuff to sell on(a very rare thing for me to do!).Got a TV game Intellivision for £1 but that was it. Todays was huge but so many dealers. 4 x PS1 games £1 each 300 WWF mags for a mate at £15 I think that was it! I had a great argument with a kid and his dad cos they had a FFVIII at £5(not unreasonable) but i noticed disc 1 was a copy with a sticker over the whole disc so it looked genuine.I told them that in case they didnt know and the little kid tried to tell me it was a genuine disc but had a different sticker over it and it would work on any ps1,i told him he was wrong and that it was a copy.I told them i was not being funny,just that it would not work on mine.As i walked away i heard him tell his mum"that FF game i just bought is £5 ok?".So he had clearly just bought it off another stall and been ripped off! Most overpriced item of the day:- Boxed Megadrive £35! What a rip! On Sunday i approached a stall and saw on the side of a box "Super GrafX" spelt that exact way,my heart went as I had never had a Super GrafX,got there and it was a cack drawing board thing for graphic design!
  5.

  17. Well I do have a full time job,in fact i run my own action figure/retro games shop,but being a collector myself most of the stuff in the shop is duff! I was up at 7 and ready to open the shop at 9! The early bird does catch the worm remember! Although I did miss a boxed ZX80 Spectrum!
  18. There are loads,or course the obvious Res Evil,FF and other Square games but how about: Doom! I never had a PC and playing this linked up on a PS1 was amazing,sitting with TVs back to back with a mate! So good! I also remember really enjoying Jumping Flash Tekken(great pulling off a 10 hit combo) Point Blanks,Ghoul Panic,Mighty Hits(as already mentioned) Bust A Groove! So good,and why did i sell mine all those years ago!

  20. There was no direct Punch Out / Super Punch Out ports,although we have Frank Brunos Boxing(Spectrum/C64),Punch Out(NES) and Super Punch Out(SNES).None of these played quite as well as the arcade and featured slightly different charcters. Did I read a new Gamecube boxing game has this hidden in it though?
  21. I was rained off Sunday and Saturday declined a SMS with game and 2 pads for £3(no power lead). Last week was a corker and I got loads of stuff including a Nintendo Large Powerglove!
