I never got into astro boy on GBA, played it through but just couldn't connect with it.

This week I got project sylpheed and amped 3 for 360 at rock bottom price. Got outbid on all my retro items, ebay seems to be settling down a little though.

Reserved Ninja Gaiden 2 for the 360 for a tenner on the argos website. I collect it tomorrow. Been after this for ages and was looking for something to spend my gift card on.

Just received the ultra rare Chinese exclusive Megaman game "Rockman IQ Challenge". Another awesome addition to my Megaman collection.

Agreed - Astro Boy looks great - and I do play it on my DS now and then - but it's fairly hard and doesnt draw you in. If only someone would make a Megaman like game with an easier difficulty curve! I'd buy it tomorrow!

Any tips on doing everything on Astro Boy? I'm just starting to play the game through and don't want to miss anything if possible.

Nothing valuable/rare as such but I was glad to get my copy of Toejam and Earl III for the xbox through the post today off of ebay. Paid little over a fiver for it.

Incidentally, I haven't played the Mega Drive T&E games. Which is the best out of the three (inc. the xbox version)? I'm guessing it'll be the original, huh?

Far Cry 2 and Grabbed by the Ghoulies. The last is a classic Rare game, those guys make good games.

What's the GG version like? Is it similar to the SMS version?

I'm quite a fan of Lemmings.

Did you get the silver tin limited edition version? or the normal one?

Either way .... SF2 Turbo is a quality game!

Cool 8) Still a good game though!
Hours of fun to be had (in my opinion)
