Tingle's Balloon Fight arrived thanks to Jaromil this morning, squee! :)

 

Not that I was ever that good at Balloon Fight, but a Japanese exclusive Club Nintendo oddity starring Tingle, of all characters? Sign me up.

Trauma centre 2

wordjong

Golden sun the dark age

mario and Luigi bowsers inside story.

Book worm £5 great game but doesn't cater for left handed people like me :(

pac pix £3 to replace my sunfaded copy

resident evil £19 not cheap, but enjoying it so far.

Orcs and elves £7 I love dungeon crawlers so picked it up.

 

got another pack from the states on the way but according to usps it was delivered yesterday and currently isn't at work. I'm hoping a custom charge note is going to arrive shortly as otherwise I'm rather stuffed.

Didn't I sell you Ace Attorney Investigations about two months ago? Or is this a US box thing again?

That copy of the EU-only Last Window must be killing you. Anyone doing repro US boxart for EU only titles?

It's the us thing again :(

last window is fine as it's the only version that exists. I can't handle having uk games when I know better spines exist. As I mentioned earlier, it's a sickness!

Just a heads up. If you're on the lookout for Mr Driller:Drill Spirits the euro version is the one to get as the US version had a mode removed.

 

I think he's after the boxes more than the games in them :)

 

Also, the UK Layton games have the proper names.

I'm still struggling with that one. I'm trying to decide if I want an inferior game over a lovely spine.
I'll probably buy both versions because I'm insane. :P

Dristone Mode is the best version of Mr Driller ever, IMO, so definitely go EUR on this. I'd imagine you can find a cart only version easily enough.

Was toying with buying a  Switch this week as I've exhausted my GBA and need some sofa gaming outlet while my wife's watching Netflix dreck every night. Then I remembered I still had my old black DS Lite in the drawer. Ordered Front Mission off eBay. Excitement levels: feverish.

I'm trying to remember the name of an obscure platforming game, I think it came out towards the end of the consoles lifespan.

 

It was about two young characters who had fallen in love and you had to help them out by drawing a line for them to run on. I think the name of the game was the names of the two characters. Something & Something, I think.

 

I'm pretty sure it was developed by a British team. It was pretty good but got unfairly hard towards the end.

 

Any ideas? It's really bugging me now.

I'm completely unable to say why I put 120hrs into FFTA, but never more than 8hrs into a play of FFTA2. It just didn't click.

I put 225 hours into the gba original due to an injury. You can read all about it in a future issue of RG.

I loved FFTA. Put 125 hours into and completed every mission including the additional missions unlocked by linking with a friend. I could never get in FFTA2 and I've restarted it several times since it came out. For me FFTA is the kind of game I can only enjoy once and the sequel didn't have that something that made the game so addictive.
