I really enjoyed 007 Legends, admittedly it's not the greatest fps that ever was, it's not even the best modern era Bond game either but it is fun and it is enjoyable to play thru the different Bond films. As a big Bond fan I enjoyed it, my only beef is the long load times between losing lives (at least on PS3) for£3 it's well worth a shot.

I picked up a copy of Medievil for the old Playstation yesterday (complete with the "New releases 98" demo disc inside the case)

I'd actually been looking at other stuff on the shelf and noticed that it had fallen down a gap behind the shelf so I fished it out and took it home. It could've wound up there for months or years unseen otherwise.

i usually have no luck in charity shops but picked this up yesterday for a couple of quid. Not seen it before. They have however done the usual thin strip of sellotape all the way around the box that will no doubt mark the box should i attempt to take it off.

Sellotape isn't very sticky, you should be able to steam it off without damaging the box. Don't overdo it though, you don't want to soak the card and have it warp.

Always include Cash Converters when you are looking around charity shops. Some of my best finds have come from these, especially the smaller ones.

But as with all this type of searching it's very hit or miss.

what windows do you use ThingOnaSpring? I'm always wary about picking up PC games as I'm never sure if they'll run on the dreaded Windows 8

Why not just make a multi-boot PC, or run virtual PCs
