Tant-r is on the bonanza bros game Shin. No dynamite cop im afraid. Shame a load of the other Sega Ages collections weren't released here. Reminds me there are a few I'd still like to get

Picked up ACIV for the Wii U - £25 in Game. First impressions - it hasn't fixed the control issues that frustrated me with the last game (getting where you want to be is still more frustrating than it should be for a game based around fluid free-running) but at least it launches straight into the story this time instead of forcing you through a 10-hour tutorial level, and the protagonist is far cooler and less whiny than Connor.

Alex Kidd In Miracle World (cart only)
Good to have this back in my collection. The only problem with the cart version is that jump is button 1 lol. The built in verson had jump on button 2. Oh well.

Looks lovely, I like tetris a lot at the moment, may pick this one up when I get a Vita again.

I have Killzone Merc for vita, but that was obligatory.

Very happy to find N64 games in the wild, it's been far too long. The Go - well I've mentioned the fact I've been saving and eyeing one for a while and found one for a decent price, not quite as cheap as the one Trev picked up but a £5 premium for a white one is sort of acceptable - could have been worse, they had a yellow 2000 for £75!

Doesn't matter what it cost mate, i'm sure you'll enjoy the Go! My daughter has really taken to mine....or rather that should be... 'my daughter has taken mine' :lol:

Get your cfw on there and let it rock! :D

Tbh, i like the yellow 2000's. That's the Simpsons ltd ed one...presumably unboxed? Quite fancy a nice complete one :)

^ Yep, unboxed.

And don't you worry, I'm getting CFW sorted as I type. It's taking a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time transferring stuff though, I think my laptop is slowly dying and currently has all the speed of a tortoise on Mogadon.

still playing Dark Souls and loving it, so thought why not try Demon Souls after i'm through with it

so bought it 2nd hand for about 8£ (a good deal, couldn't find it really cheap anywhere)

I picked up a copy of Tetris for my Gameboy at the weekend for £2

All the years i've owned a Gameboy and played Tetris, I've never owned my own copy of it :lol:
