Re: From the Forum - Issue 205: Sega vs Nintendo

Nintendo SNES, the greatest console of all time. Too many great games to list, SMW, Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Super Bomberman, Mario Kart, Turtles In Time, Super Ghouls N Ghosts, I could go on.

Halo, amazing memories of 16 people playing multiplayer at various friends houses, carrying all those ethernet cables and CRT tv's.

Re: Questions about this arcade stick

The arcade stick looks very cheap and probably wouldn't be very good.
I would wait and get an X-Arcade Joystick and X-Box adaptor 2nd hand on ebay, i got mine for £50 on there last year.

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

Arcade 1up Street Fighter 2 machine, it is awesome, love it. I will probably upgrade the joysticks at some point to SANWA ones but it is a great bit of kit.

Re: PS3 - retro??

I got a PS3, 80gb fat, boxed with 2 controllers and 53 games for £40 from the car boot sale last year, only played it once. They are worth picking up cheap if you can get one. I prefer the 360 though
