You should have bought the Timesplitters games...especially if they had Future Perfect. Not a cheap game and rarely seen in the wild.

I have future perfect for the cube. I hear that ts 2 is the one to go for, thats the one everyone seems to rave about. I never see gc games in the charity shops around here, mainly just ps2 sports titles.

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:
Considering your interests (Lack of attention span :P ), the 32 bit era is absolutely perfect for you. So many cracking arcade games that are simple to play but full of depth too.

I have a few things here or incoming.
Gunvari, a Namco lightgun collection for the PS2 is there, with all three Point Blank games as well as Time Crisis, it's very nice, and I have acopy of GTI Club for the Wii incoming from Germany, PAL copies of that one are thin on the ground.
Colecovision under repair! Superior Donkey Kong incoming!!

I just noticed theres a new Kairosoft game out for Android, Pocket Harvest! Link

I've been a big fan of their games since Game Dev Story came out so I'm quite exited about this new one.

SFA is a great find. I put my copy on ebay at a 99p start a few weeks ago and it sold for over £23. Was really pleased because it was a £12-£15 game last time I checked.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

As is Final Fantasy XII. Much better than X and X-2 in my opinion.
