I seriously detested Midway for their horrific abuse of the letter K. The "Kollection" just makes it worse! :evil:
Their using 'Kollection' mildly amused me, lol!

I picked up Elite on the NES this week, it cost me £41, but damn was it worth it.

Best format for Elite ever...

Call of duty 2 for xbox 360 now my favorite call of duty game because i'm actually good at the multiplayer ( even though you can really get decent play time in during the peak hours 2pm-8pm) but for $5 It was an awesome deal
pm me I'm always up for a multiplayer session for the following games
Gears of war 1 2 3
Call of duty 2 3 4
All of the halos
Call of duty modern warefare 2
Shadowrun

How much did that set you back if you don't mind me asking?, wouldn't mind picking one up myself.

I've got an old chipped PS1 somewhere but I'm not sure if that will play imports, I don't know what it's had done to it either cause it was bought many years ago from a second hand shop.
If its chipped to play copies, then it should play imports as well.

Double Dash still drives me mad just thinking about it. Special Cup, 150CC and on the final straight of Rainbow Road before getting hit by enough artillary to destroy a small country killing my chances of winning the GP :evil: And this happened several consectutive times :lol:

Good luck with that Yu-Gi-Oh! game. I used to have that one and the rules are nothing like the actual card game so it tricks you into thinking that it'll be a great portable version but nothing makes much sense. It's also bloody hard. Obviously I don't know if you bought it because you like Yu-Gi-Oh or just because it was cheap but if you do like the card game, the World Tournament games are the best ones to get as they at least play by the rules.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
