Inspired by the Playstation games thread I've picked up Heart of Darkness and Spider for a few quid each. And Guitar Hero World Tour arrived on Friday for a rocktastic weekend! :D

King of Fighters Orochi Saga for the PSP finally arrived this week; I've been playing the hell out of it and it controls very well... I'm very happy with this one; worth importing if you're a KoF fan!

Got Saints Row 2, its just mindless fun. I love sticking it on for 15-20 min bursts and having a laugh.
I'd buy that for a dollar!

I thought GH was to be released on Nov. 21?... I was told it was postponed, or is it just in France?

Seems to be out in the shops near me, it seems odd France gets it 2 weeks later.
My Rockman X4 Special Edition for the Playstation finally arrived today. Would have had it a week or so ago but Parcel Force wanted customs paying on it but never sent me an invoice so I had no idea it was even in the country! Thank god for electronic tracking over the Internet.

Them GBA x in 1 carts usually do have the number of games listed on them. Most are usually emulated NES games though.

Ah thats cool :) I like a lot of NES games. Some carts I have are of China origin. You would have 7-8 games then hacks at different points in the game, invincibility cheats etc.

What system are you after it for? Mine's the PS2 version. As far as I know they all came out last week over here though.

Bought myself a Saturn today, my old one died whilst in the process of chipping it (RIP :cry:). I got the saturn and four games, Clockwork Knight, VF2 and two nameless footie games you so often see for £25 but it was an implulse buy, and I've spent the afternoon on Virtua Cop 1 & 2, and Die Hard Arcade so in my eyes certainly worth it :D

MMZ is one of the best Megaman games in recent times, it has been bettered by its sequels (Zero 4 is especially brilliant) but is a solid Megaman title none the less.
Battle Network 3 holds up as my favourite BN game, enough customization to make things fun and interesting without it becoming tedious or plain boring. Stay away from BN4 though, thats the one that ruined the series for me. 1-3 are the ones to play.
