Come on, T-bone. Pics of phat lewt.

Sorry, I had a life tonight and went to the cinema to watch Doomsday! :wub:

I'l take pictures of my goodies tomorrow, but in short I found a ps1 with 8 games for £5, an atari st with 3 games for £2, and three mint wii games (trauma center, super paper mario and the simpsons) for £30 :P

Non gaming finds were pretty good as well - Beatles Abbey Road LP for £3, Dungeons and Dragons board game (recent hasbro release) for £2 and a rather nice chrome bread bin for £3 :P

Do those Codies carts actually stand proud of the top of the GGs case, then? Not met those before.

Yeah, they stick out of the top. They made their own Master System carts too which are a different shape.

Notice the excellent dizzy collection and dropzone.
Jealous :(

Ahhhh back into the swing of things. Missed Sunday's boots due to oversleeping ;) but pootled round this morning to see if anything was left.

Saturn Wheel!?!?!? Even if it was 50p whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?!?!??!?!? ^_^

Hehe, I quite agree. ;) I have yet to find ANY console steering wheel that has any advantage over a control pad. If they are boxed they take up quite a lot of room and if not boxed they don't stack. Very difficult peripheral to store.

Randomly, that's an import Saturn wheel too.

Had no idea it was an import, cheers. :(

I should've spotted that to be honest. It's in a white box, whereas the UK ones were in the same type of boxes as the Virtua Gun and Saturn console. I suppose you could use it as a bedside cabinet ;)

Saturn wheels are great. I set all my record Sega Rally times with a wheel; it's all in the range of movement vs. pad. The Codies carts are great, huh? I got Dizzy on the Master System and it's the oddest looking thing ever when placed firmly in its slot! :)

Was suprised to find a old style C64, glad to see that people's atics can still produce the occasional supprise.

Picked it up mainly for the couple of Jeff Minter games.

Neither will I, I've just opened it up, no disk. :) My fault for not checking, £3 for a box and a manual. :(

Ah gutted. Saw a shadow hearts covenant for £1 today. Opened it up to find only 1 disc. Hate it when that happens.
