There was a Magna Carta for sale on Cash Converters website yesterday (along with some Vectrex games). Sadly I dont plough any time into RPG games much at the moment - think I might start Grandia again though as its my favourite.

I'm off to a good start. A quick count up tells me i already have 43 of those titles.
Do you plan on ever going out again?

No, i've spent all my money on the house this year. Can't afford to go out ever again.... :lol:

Taito Legends for a fiver and Midway Arcade Treasures 3 for £1.50. M.A.T 3 is ok, bit ho hum really. STUN Runner, Super Off Road, Badlands, Hydro Thunder and that other Thunder game are the best ones. Rush 2048 and Rush: The Rock havent aged well, and are in fact gash :( Then, this morning I had Xyanide Resurrection pop through the letter box. It's on ok game, nothing worth shouting about. Got it for about £2, so cant complain. Some good features on it, but it's just ho hum (again). Might plough through it at some point then get rid.
JSW's Guff Emporium! <- My bit of t'internet.

Picked up NBA 2K13 for the Wii U for 8 quid, Jay Z has had a hand in it so there's your guarantee of quality.

midway 3 is fantastic, i bought it a few months ago just for super off road, its my all time favourite game and a total ballache to get at a decent price, plus its the arcade version that holds the most memories for me, cost about £4 including postage off amazon, i got the rest of the midway series from cash converters for £1 each.

got the master system version of super off road a while back too, cost about £12 delivered from germany, but its mint condition (box and manual look brand new) one of the prized items of my ms collection which is the largest of my console collections

A sky blue DS Lite with a broken hinge for a couple of quid - the plan is to swap out the screens and buttons with my existing white one (which has a top screen full of stuck pixels and a bottom screen with weird circular scratches).

mine is a sky blue one too, paid about £40 second hand about 4 years ago

why not just fix the hinges? is it not easier to do that?

Picked up Rayman Legends and Sniper Elite 2 on PS3, FIFA 14 on 360. Very rare I pick up stuff these days. Got Unirally and Gradius 3 on SNES from Felgekarp.

It wasn't broken in the normal way, there was actually a chunk of plastic missing from the casing. That's why I was going to put the guts from the blue one in the white casing and have me a nice custom DS with two good screens.

However, even after watching various YouTube tutorials and general meticulous preparation, I screwed up royal as the thin orangey ribbon that connects the top screen to the mobo tore in two.

Ah well, needed a new(ish) DS anyway so it's time to raid under the mattress and live off economy rice for a fortnight...

Well, I bought GTAV:CE, then realised I was a little long in the tooth for a Los Santos baseball cap, so I sold it for what I paid and got the regular edition instead!
I also have bought Parodius Deluxe for the PS and Super Puyo for the Jap Snes. Far Cry 3 was also picked up, and I was given a copy of Lost Planet 3, which I'll more than likely never get around to!
Colecovision under repair! Superior Donkey Kong incoming!!
