Wanted: SNES Action Pack with Super Scope

Hi there, back in '92 I had the Super Nintendo Action Pack in the big box complete with the scope. Every now and again I see one on ebay but ideally i'm looking for one in great shape rather than yellowed and/or a beaten box. If you have one for sale then please let me know! :D

I shouldn't really have to mute people who are being rude - just don't be rude - but perhaps i'm a bit old fashioned that way.

Re: Modern Warfare 3

That really spoils CoD unfortunately, 10 year olds shouting abuse - pathetic . . . so does the £46 price point - talk about taking the mick - with that and (say) 3 map packs, that game will cost you almost £80. I play COD online all the time and haven't found too many abusive 10yr olds, most of the...

Re: Now That's What I Call Music!

I think pretty much anything from the late 80's-early 90's does it for me.......The Housemartins, Jason Donovan, Army of Lovers, Lisa Stansfield, Betty Boo, Erasure, The Shamen, The KLF.....yeah, probably not the smartest move to namedrop some of my personal nostalgic favourites there methinks :D

Re: Online Username Thread for PS3/360/Wii

My PS3 username is gemzsweeney (wasn't rocking the RetroWench title at the time! :P) Hindsight is a wonderful thing - for some inexplicable reason I decided to add an underscore to my name which always makes me look an idiot in conversation: Them: What's your gamertag?

Re: Modern Warfare 3

My verdict on MW3 is that it's excellent, surprisingly excellent actually. I was at a point where I was losing interest in CoD as a franchise as they were all essentially rehashes of the previous installment but after completing MW3 on veteran (just under 7.5 hours for me) and then experiencing the ...

Re: What are you currently playing?

MW3 on the PS3 is surprisingly taking up a lot of my gaming time bearing in mind how close I came to knocking the series on the head after experiencing Black Ops.

Also stuck on PGA Tour 97 (Saturn) for a laugh the other day yet quickly realised that I had a lot of old skool fun playing it.

Re: Poll - Do you play new releases?

The dramatic drop in prices that new/relatively new games have so soon after release generally put's me off although there are exceptions: I knew i'd get value for money with MW3 for example, I knew i'd enjoy the campaign and regularly play online so dropping $60 on the day of release wasn't really ...

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

Just waiting for Black Ops to arrive any.......minute.......now. Getting impatient for the UPS van to arrive - it's at times like this I realise that pre-ordering something from Amazon is inconvenient and i'd be much better off physically getting it myself from the mall on the morning of release. Ne...

Re: Worst beat-em-ups ever

I guess I should read the entire thread before throwing in my 10 pence as they might have already been mentioned but here we go anyway: 1. Rise of the Robots . Lovely to look at but quite possibly the most unplayable fighter i've ever come across. Just had a quick Wiki of this and it appears that th...

Re: Name that game or console that you aspire to own

I've always wanted to get hold of a PC Engine and an Amiga CD32. I suspect both are quite readily available on ebay and the like but i've yet to take the plunge. Also, i'm a little concerned at possibly paying over the odds for consoles that didn't have a vast library of quality.......especially the...

Re: Call of Duty Black Ops Teaser Trailer

I thought the game looked pretty average when I saw the first single-player trailer - *yawn* just another CoD FPS - but after seeing the multiplayer trailer i'm quite looking forward to it. Not quite sure what I make of that mini remote controlled car perk but I do think the ability to record clips ...

Re: Your rarity/price guide references

Stuff is worth how much you're prepared to pay for it. I don't care how much something is "worth" - its all about how much I'm prepared to pay for it. Right now i'd pay a good forty quid for a sealed Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney - hardly "worth" that though but I'd pay for it as I want it sealed. A ...
