Thanks :D

Tbh I'm not the most patient person, but will have to give it another go (luckily my battery in the SP died before I could throw the console at the wall) :lol:

What would you recommend as the best MM on GB?

Picked up a few this week!

LA Noire and Rage on the 360, both of which I'm really enjoying!

Paris-Dakar Rally and Wreckless - The Yakuza Missions on PS2, which both seem decent enough...

And also on 360, but downloaded from XBLA, Shank, a groovy Grindhouse-inspired hack'n'slashing beat-em-up!
Cinema Of Stuff Presents - The Undying Monster! http://tinyurl.com/nekrjdx

Let's go, Mr. Driver!

As a starting point I'd recommend the first MM GB game which you have. Its a good balance of difficulty and decent level design. You'll die quite a bit to begin with but it does get easier over time! The final level still gives me the odd problem here and there.
If you want something easier then go with MM2 but its level designs are nowhere near as good and the music is horrid. 4 and 5 are my personal favourites but are also the rarest/most expensive to track down.

The best Neo game along with Metal Slugs 1-3. Love Blazing Star. Love it. Looks so good as well, and the music is awesome. Every good shooter needs a good soundtrack.

We have an antiques dealer in our village and they sell everything from chairs to games and today, as a means to get out of the house (due to being housebound for 2 weeks now after my op) I popped in to have a nosey.
Wasn't cheap, not by any means, but a good haul I think (even though I have some of them already lol)

I traded some PS3 games yesterday for a £20 PSN voucher and used it to get Resident Evil 2 & 3 (I've been waiting for these to hit our PSN for a long time) and Ridge Racer Type 4.

Just been into town and got :-

Retrogamer issue 100.
The Commodore 64/Spectrum 30th Anniversary Special Book.
Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition (360) £25 in Game.

Thats cheaper than most places online and the 360 version seems to have sold out in a lot of places.

Also, SSX (PS3) appeared in the post this morning.

:-)
