I've wanted this games for ages - perfect train home from work stuff!

Anyone else played it?
I haven't played it but I have had my eye on it for a while, really really tempted by it,

i have a step down so should be easy enough to use an original psu, was kind of hoping to find a uk psu though, but it has a different connector

Yeah, that's the problem with the US SNES (other than the purple :P ) - the connector is vastly different to anything else. You can't use a UK SNES PSU, you can't use a Super Famicom PSU, you can't use a Mega Drive PSU, you can't use a generic AC adaptor...

You can make your own adaptor though.

Excite stage 95

Prince of Persia


Darran - was talking to the guy i bought these (and a few recent others) from about the mag and he mentioned you had bought super ghouls and ghosts from him. I had that copy in my ebay basket for ages before getting something else! Looked in good condition?

He also said you were after this prince of persia, sorry!! :lol:

Mario Kart 7 and Lego Lord Of The Rings. Both on 3DS. Bit pricey at £35 for the pair, but worth it.

I love Top gear on the Snes, had it as a kid and I love the opening music and the music on the first track


Such an underrated Gem of a game

i caught a local overpriced shop sleeping the other day and grabbed a boxed copy of Tecmo Cup Soccer (usa) for $15. This place is usually DOUBLE ebay prices, but they didnt do their homework on that one.
