WOW! I remember paying full price for Sim City 4 a couple of years ago when it came out - I'm gutted now it only costs a tenner!
Could have got two games for the £15 from their selection, really wanted the double pack of Tomb Raider 1 and 2, had it a few years ago, but borrowed it my cousin and never seen it again :cry: I hope I can get this SimCity 4 to load up on my Laptop, almost reminds of me in the days of waiting for C64 game to load up :roll:

Just bought Gekisha/Photo Boy on PCE Hucard and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat for the GC.

Photo Boy is hugely charming and original- it almost comes across as a great lost British 8-bit gem (albeit produced by crazed japs).

Gets an extra point for the Boy's insane fixed grin and unexpected swears.

Jungle Beat is one i've been meaning to try for a couple of years now (I 've even had a set of cheap bongos ready and waiting)- and im only sorry i didnt get this sooner.

The feel and gameplay are really lovely in this- its been stripped down and structured perfectly around the use of bongos. Probably the freshest yet most perfectly old school platformer i've played in years.

Double thumbs up for both.

Tried them now.
The Namco one was not bad, but I guess a lot of you know that.
The Sega one was very good I thought. They have crammed a whole MegaDrive into the tiny box, and it can even run off 6V external.
The 20-in-1 looked like a NES or SMS(no?) like thingy (not too fancy, but capable sprites though), but unknown and boring games.

new games

Panzer Dragoon (fantastic), Wipeout (OK) and Sega Rally (great) for my newly bought Saturn. How much would Radiant Silvergun cost (I'm guessing a lot!)
Own many consoles but when you start to own hundreds of games its a pain choosing what to play.

Not very retro at all, but I just bought Warhawk on the Playstation Store.

Burning Rangers

Post by sscott » Mon Sep 03, 2007 4:47 pm

Heard the game was a classic but have picked up all my saturn games for no more than £2 each (apart from Panzer Dragoon) - is it worth it?

Managed to pick up two good PS1 titles from a local 'chariddy shoppe' on saturday in good nick for £2 each. They are... Speed Freaks and Rapid Racer. The latter one is rare, but it's a great game. Sega Rally... in the form of powerboat racing! Used to rent this one out loads when it came out 10 years ago :)

I bought Speed Freaks because Playstation Power wouldn't shut up about it. They kept on saying how good it was, and even gave it 96%! Nevertheless I had a quick go at it. Good fun, though really it's just another Mario Kart clone.

This past week I got a very good condition boxed Final Fantasy 3 on SNES to replace my cart and I got a boxed Shadowrun(US) also for SNES. Not sure whether to hang on to my UK cart now or to sell it. Picked up a boxed Mega Bomberman and Rocket Knight Adventures for £3 a piece. Also Princess Crown (Jap) for the Saturn arrived today, original release with spine. I'm pleased to have this at last, got it for £34 which seemed a good price. It's not quite as nice condition as I hoped (slight indents on the manual edge from plastic placeholders - does this bother anyone else like it does me?) but it is certainly in very good condition. It certainly plays great :) Burning Rangers is well worth £15 especially when you see ebay prices, probably my best ever bargain (and I rarely get lucky like this) was getting this mint at a car boot for 50p! A bit of a mix there and a fair bit of money spent this week.
