SNES:

Metal Warriors
Ranma 1/2 Hard Battle
Wild Guns

PS1:

Suikoden 2

DC:

Capcom vs SNK 2
Last Blade 2 (jp)
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (jp)

PS2:

Outrun 2006
Wizardry Tale of the Forsaken land
Chaos Wars

GBA: Ninja 5-0/Cop

These are the ones that come to mind right now.
They had a few PS2 Outrun 2006 in Gamestation last week for £1.99

Just confirming this is Devil Hunter Yoko, as I saw it listed as Monster Hunter and Devil Hunter Yoko and the Six Bells..

PlayStation via RGB = Even sharper jaggies plus clearer to see warping and clipping
N64 in RGB = The usual smear-o-vision mess and fogging plus the new added 'bonus' of seeing a few jaggies

Win/Win or Lose/Lose? It's a fair question!

Original Cotton looks amazing on mine.

An Outrun and a Paperboy Arcade machines. There have been many close misses over the past year, I have tonnes of spare parts, pretty much everything off and in an Outrun cab, just no cab! Same with Paperboy. My time will come though.
WANTED: Mario Party 3 on N64 (just the Box only) ANY SNES GAMES, OR EMPTY SNES BOXES, INSTRUCTION MANUALS or WHITE INNER TRAYS.

I have got a steel book case for SC4 on PS3. When I bought the game in Gamestation they handed me the steel book and the game in the normal case separately.

I am after quite a few things but mainly.

1) Castlevania Symphony of the Night (PS1) I used to own it and stupidly sold it. I will never pay over £100 for a game :lol:
2) Shenmue 2 (XBox).
3) Not a game but a Neo Geo AES or CDZ would be rather nice.

Did you get the bonus DVD and character booklet too?
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I spent nearly two years looking for Tales of Eternia on the PSP (new and sealed). Early releases of the game have a bug where one of the key items needed to progress isn't actually in the game. So not only did I have to find a new, unopened game (for OCD purposes rather than collection of sealed games) I also had to get one with the right firmware on the UMD. Not easy.

Now I'm trying to get a new copy of Dynasty Warriors Volume 2 for the PSP for a sensible price...

Same here. Why was I so stupid. I couldn't I just leave it in the shelf like I did with C&C Red Alert and NHL 2000. Another one that bothers me is Suikoden. Had that too and loved it. I've decided not to sell games anymore unless I have no money to buy food.
Hello. My name is La-li-lu-le-lo. Nice to meet you!
