Random stuffs from the last few weeks:

Image

Wave Race and Freak Out were from Shinobi (thanks man), Tecmo Classic Arcade was sealed off ebay for £7.99, Fluid was from Roo in the RN+ thread, Einhander was just over a tenner from ebay and Project X Zone was sealed from ebay for £10.99 :mrgreen:

Oh and this for £39.99 thanks to Amazon's mistake (and their grace in not cancelling the order it has to be said):

Can't believe that it's been ten whole years since ToS first came out :|

This one's a reprint by Midas :wink: . There are a few other games (like Wetrix 2.0) that were reprinted by other publishers with different covers.

I picked up Rayman Legends and Arkham City for Wii U a few days ago, and also picked up a 1982 Donkey Kong Game & Watch from ebay for £30. Pretty happy with that, not a huge collector but Nintendo stuff from before I was born makes me tingle

Is that Castle Shikigami 3 there? Shame it got cancelled for release here :( Was it you that I recommended it to a while back when you got a Wii?

That PS3 game looks... interesting

^ Yeah, and it was me you recommended it to. Akiba's Trip is a bit strange but good fun, have the first one on PSP too.

Ys Memories of Celceta and Dangan Ronpa, both for the Vita. Taking a bit of a punt on both, fingers crossed and all that.

Hi,

Just wondered if anyone could help with something I noticed today.

I bought a Dreamcast bundle today at a car boot sale and there were a number of duplicates of games I already own. As I imagine is usual for most people who collect, I've spent some time going through my existing collection, to work out which are in the best condition so I can hold onto them, and which I can trade in at my local retro store, (provided they work OK).

While doing this, I found that of the 2 Sega Rally Championships I now have, one is on a grey disc, and the other is on a pink disc (similar to the Sega Saturn disc). I wondered whether this is unusual, as if one is a weird variant, I will probably hold onto both.

Thanks!

As far as I'm aware the grey is the original release and the pink is a reprint. No changes to the game so only of interest to completist collectors in the long run.
