@Xfile2708

Alphabetical - nice :D

I'm always too disorganised to put the collection in A-Z - and part of me wants to put all the same coloured next to one another.

@twoheadedboy

that's a beautiful collection - alway nice to look thru pics and see a title you've never seen before - there's a few there that are new to me.

Is Combat Cars fun?

Must have around 50-70 MD games by now. I lose count, but have begun making a list of every game I own for reference. MegaCD is around 10-15 games, while I have around 15 32X games, not a bad achievement considering how much some of the 32X library goes for. Would love to own Knuckles Chaotix someday, but not willing to fork out the insane £100 prices it goes for. T.T

I've got around 70 in total and it is definatly the console I enjoy the most collecting for. I think I'll definatly try and track down all the RPG's for it at some point. I have a few at the moment, I never realised there were so many until recently. Though I've got to say Piers Solar is a fantastic retro RPG, one of the best I've played.

Thanks for the comments there :D

The EverDrive's fantastic, there's only Virtua Racing that I haven't managed to get working so far. Plugged into the 32X, it'll also run 32X ROMs (PAL-only), except somehow I can't get Knuckles Chaotix to work. It does SMS games too!

Really nice to be able to play things like Sonic 1 Megamix and all heaps of otherwise unaffordable games (Twinkle Tale, Eliminate Down) on the actual hardware.

Combat Cars is alright, it's no Micro Machines and the weapons are really unbalanced, but it's good for a few minutes of fun. Not worth hunting for.

Rock & Roll Racing on the other hand is a game I'd REALLY like to get. Been playing a lot of it via the EverDrive and it's close to Micro Machines in terms of "Best 16-bit Racer Ever".
