From my monthly trip to Merry Hill...

Super Mario Sunshine (a re-buy to see if I can get into it this time)
Silent Hill Shattered Memories (I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll enjoy this)
Super Mario Galaxy (because it's teh awesome and I feel I should complete it before getting SMG 2)

I bought Transformers: War For Cybertron for XBOX 360 from a local Big W (Woolworths) for AUD$61 yesterday.

Also ordered Quake for the Saturn and Transformers for PlayStation 2 off eBay in the last day or so.

With a good pay day coming up in less than a week, I'll no doubt be grabbing more off eBay in the next few days.

I finally managed to get a better copy of Megaman: Dr Wily's Revenge for the Gameboy. The box on my last copy was pretty based up but my mint copy arrived this morning.

Additionally my brother just came back from America with the following for me:
Megaman Zero Collection
Megaman Star Force 3: Red Joker
Megaman Star Force 3: Black Ace (Loose)

That takes my total Megaman games to 301 and the number I need to complete my collection to 49. Almost there!

I brought this on eBay about a week ago for £18 with £10 postage.

Very bizarre bundle, and i'm guessing that the seller didn't know anything about what he was selling - it's an import model (with a purple flap) but this wasn't mentioned. He also bundled an N64 game with it (Turok 2) - I presume that he thought it was a Mega Drive game as the cart is black. :fail:

He said it comes with 17 games, however in the photo on the auction there was 21...which is the number I received. They're a mixture of bootlegs, PAL and US releases.

I have a feeling that the console itself is a bootleg - it's an Asian model, as mentioned earlier, but the box and instructions are in English? It came with a 2 pin plug. The box shows two 6 button pads, but the two I got were 3 button. Both joypads are broken - one appears to be dead, the other only the start button works. Not a big issue as i've ordered some new 6 button ones from Deal Extreme. The bundle was also sold as untested.

Some games have no sound too? Toki/JuJu has sound but Altered Beast and Rastan Saga II are mute. I've cleaned the contacts up; not sure what else I could try?

I can't get the top two multi-carts in the photo below to work. Snow Bros. worked first time though. These carts feels very cheap and nasty....

Image

...in fact, they aren't even held in with screws - I could pull them apart with my fingers. :D

Image

These bootlegs amused me. The writing says "Your family will enjoy playing home entertainment like never before!"

Image

End of the day though, i'm not bothered that the pads are borked and some of the bootlegs don't work - I still think I got a good deal for the money. Looking forward to playing Snow Bros. once the new pads arrive! :p

Interesting bundle that, plenty of decent games there too... Probably not BATMAN RETURN though! ;)

Even though Snow Bros is a bootleg that's still a nice find!

Yesterday, I got Assassins Creed 2....today I took it back. Too slow, and I found the first 25 minutes boring as fook. What I'm really on the look out for is Fallout 3 Game of the Year on 360. Do you think I can find it in Game, Gamestation and HMV? No fecking chance. HMV said it's been deleted :shock:

HMV have it on PC for £30. Worth looking on their site. It's just the 360 version, apparently :?

I've seen loads of pre-owned copies in the Game and Gamestation at Merry Hill, picked up my copy last month for about £17. If you don't get it in the interim I'll PM next time I go, if you still want a copy and they're there to be had I'll pick you one up.
