Re: If you ever goto bury town centre

its on the stretch of road where the main shops are cash generators/cast converters etc. Trouble with the shop is you can't get hold of the games yourself as most of them are out of reach so you have to ask the bloke if you can have a look at them. I told him to get me 3 games and I picked the best ...

Re: JP Mega Drive collection: change of plan

Think you have made the right decision. Like you said what's the point in buying these games when you know that you won't/can't play them? I have mixed views on people going for 'full collections' sure it might sound good saying 'I have every game for the mega drive' but when they are just sat on a ...

Completely agree, you cant beat that feeling of collecting the real deal :)

I have the asian and jap machines and just wondered why it appears on the asian model but not the jap model which you switch the machine on? Is it just a simple case of it being in english and its skip...
