Re: GBA Collecting

One way to avoid the fakes a lot of the time is to stay away from US copies with the ESRB ratings logos and the 'Advance' part of the Gameboy Advance on the box in black. Not saying that fakes of Euro GBA games don't happen but for some reason, most of them are knock-offs of the US editions. And in ...

Re: Brave Fencer Musashi PlayStation

The problem you will have is that copies will only be on ebay UK if somebody went to the effort of importing them back in the day and given the game isn't that mainstream, it's not going to be a common sighting. There are NTSC copies available from mainland European sellers and from the US itself. I...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Shock Troopers 2nd Squad - Great game but seriously difficult with bullet patterns becoming almost bullet-hell like in no time at all. Going to have to fire up the original now because I'm not sure I remember it being this unforgiving.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Getting towards the end of Final Fight Streetwise now and I can see this double escort mission potentially breaking me. It's possible to have a bunch of huge enemies swamp the two NPC's you are supposed to be protecting and kill them within seconds. Worst still, these enemies don't flinch or stagge...

Re: Streets of Rage 4 officially announced!!!

Main issue for me is that this needs to be pretty special after the immense Streets of Rage Remake which was incredible for an unofficial product. I mean, I will probably buy it by default anyway because it looks sweet and the new art style + all-new game in general will be awesome after years of pl...

Re: What grinds your gears ?

White van drivers Totally live up to the image. Last week, first day of the holiday. On the motorway near Manchester the traffic in the third lane grinds to a halt, a few seconds later a huge hit in the back of the car and mr white van driver must have been way too close. Didnt even get out of his ...

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

Not sure Cammy (or Sodom for that matter) ever made it into the game. I've seen concept art for both, but never found them in the main game or arcade mode. Also, just wait until the fire extinguisher bit in the main game. Its really silly, and really badly programmed! Cammy is an optional fight in ...

Re: Nintendo shut down Emuparadise.

Worst part is that I don't care about Nintendo roms but if the other, non-Nintendo stuff tanks with it then that sucks!

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

Final Fight Streetwise for the PS2. Terrible rep but after watching some gameplay and forgetting about the Final Fight name, the game itself actually looks...okay? So I bought a copy. Looking forward to giving it a go when I get the chance :) Oh you poor soul. You've no idea what you've unleashed. ...

Re: Selling sealed Radiant Silvergun - looking for advice

i'm slightly confused about the bit in bold. Does this mean if my copy of Radiant Silvergun were to sell for eg £400 and something happens to it in the during transit, I will only get a maximum of £250 back? This "enhanced" compensation seems to be only option that goes beyond the maximum £50 payab...

It was in off topic in what books you read recently, probably been bumped several pages back by all the politics threads
Found it for you so I will PM it over. I'd posted in the thread myself recently so it was still relatively close to the top :)

Re: Selling sealed Radiant Silvergun - looking for advice

Definitely offer international shipping if you can. I'd say 75% of the games and other stuff I sell gets sent abroad. People seem to pay more (even taking international shipping into consideration) for collectibles and games than they do here in the UK. Almost all of the high value games I have sol...
