Re: Tekken 2 Advert

I remember being bowled over by those hype ads and getting a PS1, then sulking that there was no Mario 64 on it. I kept playing Croc for hours hoping it would become as good as Mario 64, and Tenka for hours hoping it would turn into Goldeneye.

Re: Latest seen new retro games on sale?
