Try Shopping Mall Japan - in experience thats the best service. I bought an FM Towns 2 with peripherals and 6 games for about £90 shipped. Good deal considering the weight of it (inbuilt monitor....) I also recommend shopping mall japan, as I have managed to get a couple of hard to find games for ...

Game Focus on Goodge Street is skill. Also, you can also pop back down to Tottenham Court Road, turn left and just past the scientologists, there is an arcade with some cracking games in the downstairs bit. Also - there is a "Samurai" Japanese sushi take-away place on the corner and a Nero coffee s...

I'd have to go with Adventures of Batman and Robin (by Konami) for the Snes. Since I am a big fan of the animated series I was extremely impressed with how Konami managed to capture the look of the show with wonderful graphics and animation as well as a variety of gadgets to use. But the 1 thing I l...

Regarding the Strikers on Saturn, the one to go for is Strikers 1945. While 1945 II is not awfully done, the job done on PS1 is fantastic(just be sure to get the import edition on PS1 for save ability). The Thunder Force packs are nice to add, but here again there are things to consider. Gold Pack ...

The 2 Shmups I'd recommend are Battle Garegga (Quite expensive though!) and Soukyugurentai. Both are fantastic, hard and most importantly fun. I think I actually enjoy Soukyugurentai more than Radiant Silvergun! Also try to go after both Strikers 1945 games, both are hard as hell to complete and rea...

You might want to get a 50/60Hz switch put in if you want to play Marvel Super Heroes Vs Street Fighter. I had the same set up as you a couple of years ago and when playing in 50Hz MSHvsSF gives scrambled backgrounds and the sound constantly skips making it unbearable, It's still perfectly playable ...

The games on the VC is emulated so I guess they either use the FDS version directly, or have hacked it to work as a rom. Great, I'll be off to download it then! I always wanted to get a FDS but I remember reading about them being rather fragile which put me off though I'm not sure whether that is t...

Hi, I'm Ian (23 Yr Old from High Wycombe) and I have been into games as far back as I can remember. I started off with an old SPectrum and then moved onto my Amiga 500 (Which I still have with me now and works perfectly!). Since then I have gone onto picking up a NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Gameb...

I'd have to go with the animated one (mainly because I haven't seen the live action one all the way through yet).

Still surprisingly good after all these years, though the fact my brother can practically quote the entire movie is slightly worrying.

Is Mario 2 a direct port of the Famicom disc system version? (So it has different tile sets) as opposed to the version the gameboy colour got (Same game but used the Super Mario Brothers tile sets instead)

Even though I would never keep a game sealed (as I can't play it) I have just recently scored a copy of both Megaman 5 and Megaman 6. Both of these are sealed but I plan on opening them anyway, I just wanted complete mint copies of both games to go with the rest of my Megaman collection and it turne...
