Re: First home game u played that was closest 2 arcade quali

I remember being blown away with Sega Rally on the Saturn.
Going back further, the Megadrive port of Outrun was pretty good.

Re: Europe's largest arcade - in Bury !

This looks like a really great place. Very well done all those involved with setting this up.
We need more of these facilities to preserve and enjoy classic/modern arcade machines. :D

Any Skylanders Collectors?

Just picked up the Skylanders Superchargers starter kit for £15 on xbox one.
Have a load of old figures from previous games that work with it, so that's my excuse and the fact that it was cheap.

Does anyone else collect these?

(I'm a grown adult.....collecting figures is my guilty pleasure) :oops:

Re: What are you currently playing?

Outrun 2 on the original xbox. Loving it. Picked it up for 50p on Wednesday along with Project Gotham racing and Amped 2, also 50p each. :) Original Xbox is a collectors dream IMO. Solid console, HDD built in, Component lead support, and a host of great games that can be bought really really cheap....

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

Both Xbone and PS4 have been a disappointment for me.
Developers have ran out of ideas it seems.

Looking forward to the Switch as it looks like a breath of fresh air in a stale hardware generation.

Sega Saturn Collecting

Going to pick up another Saturn in the new year, as I still own copies of Sega Rally, Virtual Fighter 2 and Nights.

Seen a few for sale at around £85/£90. Is this a decent price these days?
Any game suggestions for the Saturn would be appreciated too? :)

Picked up another PSP 2000 in white last weekend. This takes my total to 5 PSP's. :mrgreen:
The PSP is still my main emulator machine.
