You have a working Vectrex and I don't. We cannot be friends anymore :lol:

Big Tournament Golf is the Japanese name for Neo Turf Masters, and I saved myself €15 just because of that label.

Puzzle Bobble is a bootleg, created from a sacrificial Art Of Fighting cart. I'll probably keep it anyway because as it turns out, bootlegs seem to vastly outnumber originals for that particular game.

Real Bout Fatal Fury was suffering all kinds of graphical glitches due to very dirty pins. We're talking the full range - problems with the lower and higher address lines for C ROM, lower address line problems for S ROM, as well as the data lines for C ROM. It took a few goes with the isopropyl alcohol, but the cart is now working correctly and my only problem is with the rather tough AI.

Thats ace. Have to admit, I've always wanted to play on one. Something that I've never had the chance to have a go on and always thought they looked great. Hope you enjoy it :D

A very nice condition copy of Black for the PS2. Thought I'd better buy one since I'll be selling all my Xbox stuff soon, the Xbox version of Black included but I will definitely be wanting to replay the game again. Only cost a few quid too - robbery for such a great shooter :)

Yes after seeing CGR's review on youtube I got Black and thought it was great. Took me years on-and-off to beat the final section (and I've still no idea what the "story" was).

Ive recently got a DS Lite and some GBA games. Currently playing Super Mario Advance 2 aka Super Mario World.

Downloaded Rocket League on PS4. Knowing it's been free on PS+ and likely a regular sale title, I feel a bit stupid paying full whack...but I know I'll get my money's worth, so hey ho :)

Oddworld New and Tasty - Only a couple of thousand copies were made for the Vita, so I'm really happy I managed to pick up a copy. Really looking forward to playing it soon.

One of the last few games I will be picking up for a while, looked a decent price, not sure what to expect:

Expect good things! It was absolutely one of the best new series' to come out of the last gen with an original take on the strategy/action hybrid, exquisite presentation and such a well realised world and characters. It was also easily the best of the trilogy (the other two games being PSP sequels).

I won't be picking up the remaster because I already have the original + all the DLC on PS3 already but I hope it does well. Can't wait for the brand-new installment which is on its way!

Cool!! Thanks for the info, hoping to get round to it after finishing AC:Syndicate, fancy playing something a little different to the norm and this looks like it. I really liked Ring Of Red on the PS2, this seems to have a similar vibe, but different game play.

Impulse bought DOOM on PS4, GAME seemed to add a few bits in too including a nice little handbook and poster. Look forward to giving it a try.
