Just picked up a copy of NBA jam with a completely different box to my other copy. Doesn't look like a budget re-release, just different packaging.

it is indeed TE - though the lettering on the box is tiny, so I didn't see it. Haven't had a play yet, but it looks more like an expanded edition than a sequel from the gumph on the back.

Also picked up a replacement super hang on at a car boot - my original cart broke a while back - though it wasn't a favourtire game anyway.

Picked up Brutal paws of fury and Pitfighter this week.

Finding it very hard to come across games I don't have now, not much turning up a carboots or on ebay except the usual chuff.

From memory, NBA Jam and the TE are pretty similar. Had the original aaaaggeeessss ago and for some reason sold it. Won TE in a competition at the local store along with a new Megadrive, t-shirt etc. The competition was who could score the most in the 1st quarter against the computer. If i recall correctly I used Detroit and scored 27 all through 3-pointers. Ahh, the memories...

my main problem with basketball games is that I don't really know the game, so I just tend to try one long shot after another :lol:

If you are just curious as to what your collection is worth check out the completed listings on ebay, that should give you a rough idea of whats currently selling for what, Just ignore any sales that have had no bids usually the same game will have sold mulitle times and work out a rough average price.

Fortunatly for us gamers the vast majority of pal MD games can be picked up for peanuts, although as with any console there are the rare or desirable titles that regularly sell for a small fortune.

If you are wanting to sell then just stick em on an ebay auction listing, starting them at 99p a pop and just see what you get for em.

Seems my days of finding cheap 32X games maybe over, as I snapped up 4 PAL games (NBA, Space Harrier, NFL and Mortal Kombat II) for £30. Guess now I'll either have to hope I find pricey games like Knuckles Chaotix for peanuts, or hope the Genesis ones arnt too much, even though I have no means to play em, yet....

I have just picked up turtles hyperstone heist for £8 in a games shop in Dover. Played it for 10 mins and must say it has aged really well, similar to streets of rage but with turtles. :)

In NBA Jam that is no problem since it doesn't follow any rule rules. But I would say that playing with a friend is great, having one player cut to the basket while the other passes to him is the easiest way to score guaranteed points unimpeded...unless they blow the dunk. :x

If you are into your football, Fever Pitch Soccer is usually cheap

David Robertson Basketball isnt bad

Joe Montana's II Sports Talk Football is actually better than Madden to me anyway

Speedball 2 is a decent conversion

Olympic Gold is a decent button masher

Summer/Winter Challenge are pretty good as well Though I think Winter Challenge is better

yer,I was thinking of getting some winter gaming thing - and as Speedball 2 only ever crashed my iPhone :evil: that's another good call. I always think exaggerated versions of any sport are more fun than simulations - but that's just my perspective as generally non-sporting person.
