Bit of a crackerjack in the local Charity shop mint boxed Gamecube Bongo's £4 and lose Bongo's £3
Some Castlevania game Dead Souls or something like that
Had the new Tomb Raider(PS4) threw today with some snazzy Lara sew on patches that remind me of the old Activision patches

Well, not a game or console, but a good chunk of zzap 64 magazines from a local collector who was selling chunks of a collection to downsize. Issues 1-37. All in nice condition. So quite stoked with that, with the upcoming annual I will be going C64 nuts again.

Bought a Japanese copy of Giga Wing 2 for Dreamcast. I promise I will never spend that kind of money again ever on a game........until the next compulsive urge...

Just had my copy of Metroid for the NES arrive in the post. I'd given up hope of finding a copy for a reasonable price when I ran across an eBay auction for a rather battered looking cart which the seller was listing as non-working since the last buyer had returned it as not working. I could see that it was an NTSC copy and gambled that this was why the previous buyer hadn't been able to get it to work - my NES is modded so I stuck on a cheeky bid, got it for £4 and it works perfectly. Bargain!

Now I need to look at some way of restoring the cart as it really is a sorry sight - the plastic is cracked and the label torn up pretty badly. But the crucial thing is that the ROM board is in perfect working order.

They have a few, the Lemmings one seems good
They are a bit like Amibos, without the DLC crap and without the people scalping them
