Astal - awesome platfotmer
D-XHIRD - 3D fighter that is pretty decent
Detana Twinbee Deluxe Pack - great little shooter
Fatal Fury 3 - one that I havnt played until now. Load times a little off putting
Galaxy Fight - I own this in the Sunsoft collection on PS2 but nice to have this version
Hyper Reverthion - a Virtual On style game replaces robots with bug type creatures
KOF 97 - standard KOF. I want 98 on PS2!
Shin Shinobi Den - Shinobi X over here. Fab cheesy live action opening sequence
Space Harrier - great port of the arcade game
Steamgear Mash - think I've already posted a pic of this. great fun to play
SF Zero 2 - well chuffed with this especially as I won it for £3
Nice lot! Have you actually played anything for more than 5 mins? :P

Managed to find a copy of Uncharted 2 Collectors Edition (PS3) at a second hand store. I have played the game before, but it's nice to have a copy of my own since it's a great game.

Probably belongs in the top5 PS3 games.

Also an electronics store near where I live seems to be selling off a lot of their video games, so I grabbed the following:
Splinter Cell: Blacklist (PS3)
Star Trek (PS3)
Crysis 2 (PS3)

also bought an extra copy of Kirby's Epic Yarn (Wii) because it was so cheap, only about £4, but I sold it already for £15 on the swedish equivalent of ebay! great success.

Why yes I have :P put plenty of time into most of the fighters there, playing both arcade mode and practice just to string together some combos. The only ones that have seen neglect here are Hyper Reverthion (its not great), Space Harrier and Shinobi as I just got that.

After selling some of the bundles I have paid just over £40 for the lot but I had that in my paypal after selling some stuff like Inazuma Eleven on the Wii for £25 and Endless Ocean 2 for £20. Cant complain, swapping out stuff I no longer want for more awesome stuff like this 8)

The Saturn is a great machine im becoming quite obsessed with it :twisted:

Got this lot on a poorly advertised punt on Ebay. £22 the lot. No aerial cable though so havent be able to test but eveything seems to power up ok. Half of it wasnt even listed so was plesaed to find a disk drive and Star wars Disk to play on it! Never seen one before in "real life"

Conan on PS3. Love the books and the movies so I decided to finally pick it up from CEX for the paltry £3 that it goes for. Not that amazing thus far; just a fairly average 3D hack 'em up.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Received Project Zero 2, Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and Sin and Punishment 2 for the Wii in the post this morning from CEX. My short term memory is quite frankly, garbage but I could've swore a few bits I've got my eye on on their site were cheaper a few weeks ago. Was going to pick up Okami which I thought was 8 quid but is now 12 quid, I wouldn't mind but that game isn't going to be rare for a very long time, if ever.

On the plus side, you can't beat £2.50 to get a bunch of games shipped. Evens out in the end I suppose :D
