Bayonetta 2 5. Super Smash Bros. for 3DS 6. Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze 7. Pokémon Omega Ruby 8. Wii Sports Club 9...

Re: Real Ale Drinkers or Lagerboys?

I was at the Ayrshire Beer Festival last weekend - top-class event, so well organised and a brilliant variety for trying. Annoyingly, I don't have my notes to hand and the website doesn't list a lot of beers that were on, but nonetheless here's a list of about 2/3s of what I went for: Scottish Alech...

Re: Random Niceness Plus (the free trade thread)

Really should mention that I'll not be able to be involved in this as much as I used to be, as I've moved to the other side of the country without my games collection. I'll do one more switch of the two DS games I'm offering next time I'm back at home, but then I'll likely withdraw my involvement in...

Re: The Best Game You've Bought For a Pound or Less

This gives me fond memories of the 'King of the Quid' vote threads that were on here a few years back, with the same sort of idea. I remember getting Mario Kart: Double Dash!! in Shelter for a pound during then. The time I asked Cash Convertors if they had any N64 games in stock, then told 'no' was ...

Re: Random Niceness Plus (the free trade thread)

I'm in no rush for it so Friday will be fine... Is Mario Galaxy the one with 'Rosalinia'? Yeah, that's right. I'll happily throw it in with Clone Wars (as a thank you for Metroid/RRT4 with Spyro 2) and add another replacement. I'll send it by the end of today. EDIT: That's Super Mario Galaxy away t...

Re: Random Niceness Plus (the free trade thread)

Swapping out Tekken 3 and GTA Vice City with Sports Connection (Wii U) and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (GameCube) . Super Mario Galaxy is still on offer. Would Capcoms Shadow of Rome be a suitable replacement for Clone Wars? Part scrolling beat em up second part Stealth game That's absolutely fine. A...

Re: Games where the first instalment in the best?

The first two I thought of were Super Monkey Ball and Jak & Daxter, but seeing as they've already been mentioned I'll chip in with Crazy Taxi, seeing as it's the best game of all time and the sequels aren't (and aren't anywhere close at that).

Re: have you ever bought a game without knowing

Bought a copy of Tiger Woods 2011 for the Wii in Cash Generator for a quid, but it wasn't until I got home that I had seen there were discs for Wii Sports, Wii Sports Resort, Tiger Woods 2007 and Tiger Woods 2009 slipped behind the instruction manual.

Re: "Off the beaten track" PS2 classics

Rumble Racing (£3-£4): SSX with sports cars and a country western soundtrack. Sky Odyssey (1p!): Underappreciated halfway-house between serious flight sim and fun arcade-like experience. Freak-Out!

Re: Random Niceness Plus (the free trade thread)

Sorry about the hold-up, gman - I'll post Micro Machines today.

EDIT: Posted. There's a couple of extra games in the package, in case Micro Machines doesn't work. Works on my PS2, but the disc is in rough condition.

The person above me's girlfriend put two hundred billion million thousand layers of bagging, bubble wrap, paper and polly bag around a Random Niceness Plus gift.

Re: Random Niceness Plus (the free trade thread)

I'm umm-ing and ahh-ing about it. I don't have an NTSC N64, but rather use the N64 Passport III (which isn't compatible with as many games as it advertises). I'll go through my collection and see if I've got the PAL version right enough. ~ I'm surprised that nobody's taken Super Mario Galaxy! I migh...
