I'm learning with my step daughter. She has an interest in learning a new language, I have an interest in playing all these Japanese games I've drooled over for years. My skill with the language isn't strong enough to play this, but I am stocking up on things. My wife is on a major Megaten kick lately too, which is contributing to the collecting. She picked up SMT and II about a month and a half ago for SFC. Told me before bed tonight that she was about to buy a copy of NINE limited, which is exciting.

The vulture just made me weep like the little boy i once was at christmas!

he sent me a big box of free stuff including sega rally championship, stalker and batman begins (on GC, others on PC) also included was advance wars. he also included a mean machines video which had sonic 2 on the cover as the main attraction, he did not know this but i used to have that video when i was a young un and i used to watch it whenever i got a chance! i remember it fondly for some reason im incredibly happy that i have it back now! thanks a lot my friend i really appreciate it!

also got through 3 master system games from Nokgod
Sonic 1 and 2 and Super space invaders which was a really nice little extra!

Sega superstars tennis for the wii
Sonic and the secret Rings for the wii

Just took a look in Altincham Gamestation :shock:

The prices were astronomical, also found a poundland so went in looking for GBA micro bits and bobs...nothing. What an absolute waste!!

However, I got an email from HMV yesterday, MW2 is in the post :)

Tell me about it. The GS in my area has a whole shelf of outdated PS2 Need For Speed games (I'm talking Underground, Underground 2 and Most Wanted) for £9.99 each! :shock:

Not part of any deal either!

My Most Wanted doesn't work (despite having the disc cleaned) so I was looking for a replacement since it's a game I've been wanting to play for a while now but at that price, I don't think so!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I had a nice suprise today when i went into one of the game shops, i saw a ps2 in the display cabinet and asked how much and he told me it does'nt read disks so he cant sell it, so i explained that i have a whole new laser for a ps2 but no ps2 so would he let me buy it anyway and he just got it out of the cabinet and said i can have it for FREE!!,
anyway, i got it home and cleaned the laser and greased the runners and it works perfectly and ive since discovered it has been fitted with an infinity v1.38 mod chip :D .

Yeah, its ok buying all this stuff pal, but when you don't send the games/consoles to myslef & Nokgod after we both sent you stuff, plus you don't reply to any PM's we both sent you, AND you reply to both of us with the message.

Instead of showing off about the bargains you've got how about answering some of the stuff here....

http://www.retrogamer.net/forum/viewtop ... it=Dan1980

Hopefully its all innocent but surely you've had lots of PM's from people ? People havent received items, granted theres been a fair few Royal Mail strike days but disappearing from the forum/not replying to emails, people start to panic a bit after the EAK nightmare
