My CDi is the most useless piece of retro hardware I own, I have better versions of all it's best games on other systems, It's a censored poor CD player and any CDi movies or VCDs are better viewed through my DVD player or my Saturn. If you want one for the sake of it then wait and pick up the more ...

Scud Race, the fact this game never got a proper home release is nothing short of criminal.

I used to horde everything! I had original IBM PCs, Apples, literally hundreds of commodore 64s, countless consoles... the list could go on forever. Now my collection is specific to Sega Saturn, with small Megadrive, Dreamcast and NES collections on the side ;) I also have quite an ample Gamecube co...

One of the rarest PAL 32X titles, but even so that's waaaay too steep a price for it.

Theres one in Reading, I might check it out..
My local Chips in Stafford are ok, they seem to regularly get dreamcast, saturn and megadrive games pretty much MIB, prices can sometimes be a little over the top though.

Saturn+ Magazine

Hope that nobody minds me posting this here...

The 32X version of Doom is by far the WORST port ever made, it's even worse than the diabolical Saturn version, do not spend ANY money on it.

You should even think twice about taking a copy for free :wink:

Re: Megadrive 32x

I have the urge to play Star Wars on the 32X - but really, is it any good? You will tire of it quickly, but it's defornately worth owning. Stellar Assault is much much better and you can hapilly sit and put some serious time into it. I would also recommend you pick up: Metal Head - if you can look ...
