I also found the EA Warfare Collection in a local thrift store for $2.99!. Pack includes MOH allied Assault, MOH Pacific Assault, Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 1942 Road to Rome and Battlefield Vietnam. Back of the net!

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Today I picked up Mario Kart Double dash for $15 and the guy in the game store threw in Outrigger for the Dreamcast for free. Very happy with that :-) Also picked up the first Harry Potter game for PS1 for $2 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 for PC which is just awesome with my Logitech steering whe...

Re: Classic SNES controller... on the Wii!

That looks sweet!!

I just cashed my rewards points in for Super Mario Kart and Fluidity.

I didn't even know they were offering games and found it by chance when I logged in to redeem some codes.

Needless to say, I was happy :-)

Tough one but after some serious consideration I have to go with Punchy for the Speccy.

Re: Best racing game ever?

I have to say OutRun!! lol

It was close though as I still play Super Monaco GP for the Megadrive and Geoff Crammonds Formula 1 GP on the Amiga. Both classic racers.

Re: Does Anybody Still Play Sensible World of Soccer?

Yep. I still play SWOS maybe once or twice a month if I get a chance.

I run it on WinUAE as my Amiga died a while back and they cost a small fortune here in the States.

I also fire up the original version too now and again just to hear the title music.

Re: Blaze Megadrive Handheld - Super Street Fighter II Edit

Yeah, I find that no one gets the sound 100% right when they are emulating the Megadrive in these handheld devices so if you want a Megadrive on the go it's probably best to go with the Nomad if you want perfect sound. FYI, I picked up a Gopher a few months back and it too had really bad sound. The ...

Re: Final Fight or Streets Of Rage?

If I really must pick one then it will have to be Streets of Rage. I played a lot of Final Fight in the Arcades but had to wait ages for a decent home port. There was no way I was spending 45 notes on the snes version when it was only single player. Streets of Rage on the other hand played really we...

Re: Most wanted toys as a kid?

For me it was the Tomy Tronik 3D Stereo Sky Fighters video game.

After nagging my parents in the run up to Christmas I actually got it.

I played with it for like a month but the damn thing kept giving me a sore head so I gave up on it!

I'd love to get one again though if I'm honest about it :-)

Re: Poll - Do you play new releases?

Hi, I currently have a Wii and until recently I had an Xbox 360 Slim as well. Was clearing out my collection and the 360 was the first to go as I was the only one playing it. I did keep the Wii though as my kids and wife love to play on it too. I still have my PS1, PSP, Dreamcast and Gopher (look th...

Re: RetroGamingRadio is back!

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll have to listen to that one. I've been listening to 1up.com's Retronauts podcast. They ran the podcast to 99 episodes and then changed the format to Retronauts Live which is basically a phone-in show to discuss old games. Both podcasts are really good but as it's an Amer...

Re: New Vs Old Gran Turismo Vs Gran Turismo 5

Had to vote for the original.

I still have my PS1 hooked to my TV so I can play this from time to time, along with a few other PS1 gems.
