Been a while for me, as I have been mostly selling off parts of my collection.

But today, I got a nice package of PS1 games from Space_Turnip and..... Medieval 2 Total War, collectors edition, complete with a figurine knight, soundtrack and loads of other goodies, £14 from cash converters....bargain!! :mrgreen:

Good stuff Grizzly, whats that a quid a game and a fiver for a DC? Bargain!

After receiving Ikaruga on Saturday (and getting absolutely nowhere in the game due to me being rubbish!), I've (hopefully) got Seaman (US) and Matt Hoffman's Pro BMX arriving tomorrow. Also got Sega Marine Fishing (US) on the way in a bundle of NTSC U games (6 games: Dead or Alive 2, Soul Calibur, Ready 2 Rumble Boxing, Chef's luv shack, Sega Marine Fishing and Sonic Adventure). My current plan of action is to go for the US games that didnt see PAL releases, so after I get the games i bought should be at 10 out of 55. Missed out on Illbleed due to popping out and asking the gf to increase the bid if I was outbid. She didn't :(

Had to rebut Naruto as for some reason Zavvi lost the rights to sell the proper card edition in the UK. This one I've bought is definitely a UK copy though. :)

And I've literally just had the Witcher Dark Edition pop through the door. Worth the £60. :)

Odd really as I avoided so many copies of that back in the day for ridiculously low prices , and a few Evolution 2 as well. Oh how I wish I had bitten the bullet and bought at least one. Ah well . Is it actually any good is more to the point. (I only have Evolution Worlds on GC to go by)

Good choice :wink: Lovely little game, I really like how the levels have split paths which lead to different boss battles. So much better than that horrid Rockman & Forte for the Wonderswan!

Evolution (1) isn't worth a huge amount now, despite what some of the BIN prices on ebay try and say. £5 is about the going rate really. Evolution 2 on the other hand....still remains the single biggest amount I've spent on a game (retro wise at least)

Yeah when I saw the cover I went a little nuts but then realised its the cheaper one, no worries though I got it at a good price anyway do I'll give it a bash. You still don't see it often let alone in bundles

Where did you get that bundle for £30?? (if you don't mind me asking).

Evolution has a very special place in my heart as the game that got me into dungeon crawlers rpgs. Not to mention it is a really good game. Never managed to be the last boss on the ship, cant remember his name, Arthur or something.

Just ordered a copy of Aliens: Infestation for the DS from Play.Com - seems to be cheap at the moment.

Facebook buy and sell, great place to pickup games, relatively untouched by traders as well. Well worth checking your town to see if you have one online :)
