Grimgrimoire is a Vanillaware game so by the same people who did Odin Sphere, Dragon's Crown and Muramasa i.e. it's worth actually playing :) . Oh and it seems to be selling for between £25-£30 on ebay so another amazing find!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I'm Addicted to Odin Sphere having a few problems controlling fairy queen Mercedes as she plays very differently to the previous character.. She plays more like a shooter character with her flying and having to reload. Will have to unpack the PS2 and start on Grim Grimiore next as it's done by the company that done 2 of my favourite games. Playing Dragons Crown on the Vita. Still seems a lot of PS2 games I never knew existed

Yeah, that's what I like about Odin Sphere: most of the characters control differently. I personally preferred Gwendolyn and Velvet when I 100%ed the PS2 version years ago. So far in the PS4 version, I'm only up to Cornelius' section as I just haven't had time to really hammer the game.

A Gamecube game in the wild, first time in a bit... Prince of Persia Two Thrones - mind condition £1.

Also, Tetris Tower 3D board game... you can "touch, feel and control the pieces" - as the box proclaims! A rather odd game £2.

We have loads of charity shops in Westbourne near where I live but all the games get hoovered up by their local postman.
I went in another charity shop the other day and they wanted Rogue Squadron on N64 for £30.
Needless to say it stayed on the shelves…

Stopped in at a few today. Mrs Rocky and I were donating a car full of stuff. Nothing new sadly, however I did witness someone trying to return a book after they had read it !!

Cheers mate, really appreciate it.

For some reason years ago I decided to get rid of it and the DK CD. Have managed to pick up the DK one again but never the KI.
