I've got about 25 games for my PS2 consoles though that figure is steadily rising...

I recently started watching Alias (the TV show) and someone got me the PS2 game for a birthday present. It's actually not bad!

Oh, and that brings my PS2 total up to 99 games, apparently. Struggling to find stuff I want these days - 100 might still be a way off.

Since you're on decent TV adaptations, could I tempt you with Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds?

Or perhaps Battlestar Galactica?

Why 'oh dear'? Marking stuff as a gift to avoid paying the appropriate taxes is fraud, just the same as failing to declare the correct amount of earnings or anything else. It's a deliberate lie to get out of paying.

I seem to remember enjoying it and at the same time thinking: "this isn't that great, but its BSG!" The controls were a bit 'floaty' I think

There is a difference between a favour and a business transaction. The issue is that the authorities are geared towards the 99.9% of movement of goods which are for business purposes which is right, rather than ordinary people sending presents or exchanging items with friends that share the same interest

I'm not sure where these have been unearthed from, but Argos have Shadow Hearts from the new world and three Shin Megami Tensi titles for sale.

a reliable stateside contact that will package everything well, be reliable and follow instructions to make sure something is not going to run you for customs charges

get that right and you will just need to keep them sweet so they will keep doing you favours
I agree.

I live in the USA, and I have provided many games to members here that live in other countries. I have not heard of any customs issues happening with my transactions.
Members I have worked with always seemed to be happy with my packaging and timely shipping. It's just a shame it costs so much to ship to you guys.
Selling one game really isn't worth it for either party, but it's great to lot up a bunch of stuff at once. I remember hunting down a ton of SNES carts for somebody here and that went well.
Also, I have done multiple trades where I send games for those darn fruit-gum candies you guys have access to.

I'm not disagreeing with you.

You're missing the previous quote from the conversation:
stayAwhile wrote:does the rule of marking as gift still work to avoid customs
StayAwhile specifically mentions avoiding customs, rather than appropriately marking gifts. Marking a gift as such for exemption from customs duties is very different from doing so to avoid them.

Perhaps its just a grammatical error on StayAwhile's part, meaning to ask regarding exemptions, but what he actually wrote related to tax avoidance.

But I'm spiralling into pedantry now, so I shall go no further. Having a friend who'll trade gifts is fine. The vast majority of ebay sellers who use this tactic are not.

Its a great set. I picked up mine for £6 a while back. Seemed silly to keep my PAL copy of Klonoa so I sold it and opted for this

That looks like a really cool set - there are so many things like this in the Japanese PS2 library that are relatively unknown over here so finding out about them is always nice :)

Would get that myself but I already own Tekken on the PS1 and the Klonoa remake on the Wii. Not bothered about Mr Driller so buying the set for 2 games isn't really up my street tbh.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Its amazing what you can pick up from Japan.

I have a list a mile long due to ther sheer amount of quality over there.

Some others I was really happy to get

A G1 Transformers game

They did a brilliant Sega ages range including Last Bronx, Dynamite cop, panzer dragoon etc

I recently got this, Was over the moon just thinking it was gunstar heroes, but look at the little pics at the bottom. yep thats also dynamite headdy and alien soldier you get on the disc as well.

Image

this cool looking streetfighter double pack

Image


and wanted this for so long. Sega Rally 2006. a japanese exclusive that is a fdouble pack and comes bundled with a copy of the original sega rally.

Image


Saw this and ignored it, only to find its a series that rereleased classic arcade games on a budget label. this happens to be a shooter I love. Sonic Wings.


Image


Fuun super combo. collects the neo geo fighters kizuna encounter and savage reign into one pack.

Image


Some stunning stuff to collect.
