Nope, not yet - I think it's going to be that, Evolution 2 and MoHo that are going to be the ballbreakers in trying to get. Even more so seeing as I don't use ebay (or know lots of French people!).

Still, pleased with MvC2, Rez and now 3rd strike this week - and with most of my tax refund still in the bank and all my xmas presents bought, I think I may have to get a few more!

Whats the games you're after now Sscott? Is it 19 left still?

MoHo is the one for me and to a lesser extent Sonic Shuffle as well as Taxi Le Jeu, 18 left, most of them cheap, an example: 18 wheeler

I bought 18 wheeler. It never arrived*. Along with 3 other cheap ones, all seemingly missing in the Post office. Was not best pleased. Need to get it again.
Sonic Shuffle is still on mine too, was going to get it last week but Amazon, from having several earlier in the year, have none.

not really a game or console, but I bought a VGA box for my Dreamcast. my RF seems to be unstable for some reason, when its working its alright (well not good it's RF afterall, but totally playable) but it gets these fits of lots of static.

Enjoy the DC version, but can't get the Gold with the Audi TT. Hoping this is just different enough...

It is and quite scary how much the game dropped in price since release. There's talk of a sequel, even though it was critically mauled It sold a shed load.

theme park world-ps2,excellent condition,the disc and manual are mint just the case is a bit worn £1.99
mike tyson heavyweight boxing-ps2,similar condition as theme park £1.99
and just for a laugh-friends the one with all the trivia-ps2,unsurprisingly excellent condition,only a slight mark on case 99p

star buy though was mortal combat trilogy-ps1,near mint,only a small chip on the case,not a mark on the disc which was a surprise for a ps1 disc £2

Last DC shopping spree before Christmas - another thanks goes to HM Revenue & Customs for the 6 year old Tax refund! Even managed to fit in some pressies for the Girlfriend and still have enough left for some extra food for christmas, a good result all round I think!

F1 Racing Championship - the only one of the F1 games left, and not one i've actually seen 'in the wild'.
Racing Simulation 2 Monaco Grand Prix Online - Finding the online version is causing me a headache, hopefully this will be the online version and not another normal version labelled wrongly.
The Next Tetris - Another one I don't see often. Good price.
NBA Hoopz - cheap one, now out of the way.
Psychic Force 2012 - Another cheaper title out of the way, very low price.
18 Wheeler - Cheaper than I paid for it last time (which went missing in the post), and a game I love!
The Grinch - Another title I'm not having luck finding in shops, paid about what I expected.
Evil Twin - Paid the maximum i'd pay for it, but another one I'm glad I've ticked off.
Project Justice: Rival Schools 2 - It was a toss up between buying this or JoJo and Power Stone 2, but I plumped for this one, another one of the few expensive ones off the list.
Aqua GT - One of the games I was expecting to be a bit of a bugger to get ahold of. Expensive, but it's good I've got it out of the way now.

My last bulk order went well, with only one item having any problems (although to be fair to the seller, that was dealt with on the same day, so can have no complaints), taken a few punts with who I've bought these from, but hopefully this will work out well too.
