Good choice Ry! This one will become quite the rarity too, so hold on to it :)
Yeah, played this at... Whatever that thing was in Stoke at the start of the year. Thought it was too good not to own, and it was the cheapest I'd found it since getting a PS2 a couple months ago. £15!

Also, whenever I see people saying "MW2", I get excited and think people're talking about Monster World II :(

- Z. On the PS1, that Bitmap Brothers game.
- Halo 3 / 360. I'm giving it another go. Just in case I was wrong and it's not sh*t. I am however, beginning to suspect I am right.
- DeathKeep / 3DO. I've been meaning to buy a legitimate version for years :)
- Virtua Racing / Saturn. Had it a couple of weeks now. I like it.
- Doom / SNES. Finally turned up. ( I was wrong about Doom, it is aces)
- Raycrisis / PAL-PS1 version. Because I'm a chump for box art.

I received my Modern Warfare for the PS3 today lol. Think I may play through it again just for the trophies then trade it in. Have to say though, the gfx aren't quite as good as the 360 version (please don't kill me), it looks very washed out in comparison and IW decided to add a 1080p software upscaling filter to it this time around. As these filters go it's very good (way better than the ones Namco use for Ninja Gaiden 1/2) but it still has a slightly smeary look. Only gfx ho's will really notice or care, as the game is obviously identical the the 360 version where it matters. Just the black levels are very grey like in comparison ;)
