VERY happy to find a Sharp Twin Famicom in Playnation Games Croydon for £130, guy threw in a copy of Green Beret and its had a new belt fitted to the drive so works perfectly. I suck at Green Beret though, so if you guys have any recommendations for games I must own, I'd love to hear!

Hope its better than the first
It's not. I managed to beat the final boss due to it's idiotic pathfinding leading to it wedging itself in a wall where I could then shoot it to death.

Yes, the PC Engine is a bit niche for the audience that go to these things, ive seen some people struggle to understand that you have to point a light gun at the screen to select and not press the screen, or remove a controller from an Xbox and try to plug it into a PS1

That's fantastic where did you get them from? I think Saturn is next on my list of gets and two for 20 would be worth a punt!

Tested them yet? Do they work?

I bought Ultraman for the Famicom disc from eBay for £8, played it once and decided I need to practice my 8-bit skills a lot more, so packed it away with the Famicom into the container for a rainy day!

Picked up Samurai Showdown IV from the Swtich eShop. Loving these Neo Geo ports so much, this is what the Neo Geo X was supposed to be! :lol:
