Re: Looking to build a database of retro game stores

Hi

I would delete Gameplayer in Crawley as it hardly sells any video games anymore, let alone retro - no more than Gamestation does opposite (ie a few PS2 and xbox games).

SNES recommendations

I was wondering what games people would recommend for the SNES. I have very little knowledge of the system and know very little of the games apart from the obvious ones (SMW, ALTTP, SOM, SF2).

Any recommendations would be very welcome!

Re: MS: 2011 is all about Kinect

We traded in our one towards a 3ds - mainly because its not got anything to offer over the Wii

Re: New Xbox collecting site

As a fellow xbox collector I'd be more than happy to write some reviews for you (should you need them)

I've always considered xbox collecting to be a bit obscure - is it catching on now?

So, I bought a Lynx. Er, now what

I've wanted a Lynx since I saw a cinema advert for it showing a load of kids playing linked up California Games (in a toilet IIRC). Never got round to getting one back in the day and been after one for about 6 months now after watching some of Darrens youtube videos. Finally picked up a very decent ...

Re: Guitar Hero To Disband

Hopefully this will mean the end of these stupid games. Never been a fan of them, even the Beatles one I hardly played and I love The Beatles

Re: RetroCollect: Rarity Guides, Collection Tracker, News, F

What do we do when we discover games that aren't listed - how do we add them

Can I add photos to the site when there isnt one? Will a standard camera photo upload type thing work?

Re: Atari Jaguar thoughts

I would say without any hesitation that the Jag is the poorest system I have ever owned (and Ive got a CDI) with a terrible controller, mostly awful games and no innovation anywhere. I sold mine at a carboot last year and have not missed it one bit since. Its the only Atari system I have ever owned,...

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

A little gamble on CEX is always a good way to spend 10 mins ignoring the missus. XBOX Robin Hood defender of the crown - No idea what it is, but liked the original versions XBOX Music Mixer - I have a Mic so why not? PS2 1945 1+2 - Fan of 1942 :? Defender of the Crown is rather rare on xbox, you r...

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

Picked up a mint crystal xbox with 3 controllers, 10 games and a steering wheel with pedals for £5 all in. No scart lead, but for £5 I wasn't complaining! Also got Tony Hawks 2 and Phantasy Star Online on DC for 50p each. Streetfighter 2 Alpha on PSP for £1.50 A fair few xbox games for 70p - £1 each...

Re: Are there any original xbox collectors on here?.

Hi, been collecting xbox for a couple of months and already picked up a couple of rare games for less than £2 each (namely Frankie Detorri and Call of the Cthulu) Its a cool console to collect for as the games are everywhere and most are cheap. For a console with a large amount of games released it ...
