Yes, thanks mate! Watched a youtube clip of Odin Sphere. Really fancy it....but its competing with Phantom Brave for the honour of being my next game. I am determined to finish Dark Cloud first. I'm up to the 'Queens' level now and about 18 hours in :D

i got soo much stuff at play expo, since getting back though its all just stopped in the bags and boxes as this is the one thing i really wanted to get out and play. Been after one for years but always missed out on one at these events. So this year it was my turn to buy one before the doors opened to the general public :-)

Image

boxed jap virtual boy, complete with instructions and other leaflets, two games too - warioland and jack bros both complete.


but later that day i went on ebay to look for virtual boy games and ended up buying another machine from america with games and spare pad too!! only i could get two machines in one day.


also got some other goodies too like 3 famicom disk games for a tenner, boxed gx4000, saturn usb pads etc

STOS for the Atari ST. Got it for £1.74 on ebay. Complete in great condition. Very chuffed.

No more heroes on PS3. Bit pricey at £25 but haven't seen it around much.

Fragile Dreams. £18 but again haven't seen it around much.

Big Mutha Truckers 2
Eggo Mania
Gadget Racers
Motor Mayhem
Riding Spirits 2
Sonic Mega Collection Plus

Well worth it. I think I splashed £35 or so on a sealed copy earlier this year and to be honest, I was happy with that. I haven't seen it in shops since it was new and it's definitely not easy to find never mind at a cheap price.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Got it a few years back for £20. Was alright, shame NMH2 wasn't ported to PS3.

DC: Skies of Arcadia
DC: Gigawing (import)
DC: F335 Challenge
MD: Bio Hazard Battle
360: Arcana Hearts 3

Really looking forward to SoA and have been looking for an affordable one for a while. Gigawing I've had a coupole of times before but always ended up trading it or selling it. Intend to keep this one (minty!)

Picked up a classic Xbox and Steel Battalion for £55 this week.
It's just a shame I didn't check the box for the Xbox as it didnt have a controller and I'm stuck on the time setup screen.

Right, my finds at Play (and this morning):

A boxed Wii with Wii Sports and Wii Play
The Flintstones (MD)
Predator 2 (SMS. Been after this for a while on the MD, but it looks like it plays the same, so thought sod it)
Sherlock Holmes Vol.1 & 2 (MCD)
Sega Classics (MCD)
SUper Empire Strikes Back, Super Return of the Jedi and Taito Chase HQ/SCI double (Saturn off Witchfinder :D cheers buddy)
Luke Skywalker bobble head (well, for a fiver.....why not?)

and then from GAME and CEX this morning, all on Wii:
Epic Mickey (CEX, £6)
Mario Strikers Charged Football (£4)
I was going to get Ghost Squad from them, but would you believe it, they couldnt find the disc :evil:
So, stopped off in GAME, and got in the 3 for 2:
Trauma Centre Second Opinion
House of the Dead Overkill
Ghost Squad (GAME offered what CEX couldnt)

Quite a lot of purchases for a change.
JSW's Guff Emporium! <- My bit of t'internet.

this morning a GIGANTIC box came with the mail, i knew Dragon's Crown for the Vita had been delivered and i immediately thought "that art book is going to be immense"

then i opened the box and a saw it was stuffed full of paper with a much smaller envelope in the middle :mrgreen:

the art book is very nice and the graphics and atmosphere of the game are great, i'm going to enjoy this one
