Why must NIS keep pumping out awesome-looking games faster than I can keep up with?!?

Is that some sort of artbook next to the game? Might have to get this one before it becomes too difficult to pick up.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

capcom generations ps2 £4 waiting for that to arrive, was sent on wednesday

i started bidding on master system stuff on ebay, madness ensued.
i have been looking for a bundle to buy at the right price, thinking keep a few items, sell a few maybe. i saw a nice one at the right price and bid, was winning till close to the end, i put my final bid at £19.50 (was a free p and p one), and it went for £20 :(
the main thing i wanted was ultima 4, great volleyball and teddy boy, so i saw a copy of ultima 4 and was bidding on that too, i was winning but it was ending the next day, i checked the auctions before going to bed (about half an hour after the auction ended) and i had a message.
basically the guy that beat me to the bundle was australian and the seller didnt want to ship abroad so the guy backed out, i got offered a second chance at £19.50 and i accepted it. that arrived this afternoon.

Next day i was in work and my phone vibrated- item won, ultima 4 master system :shock: i went from no copies to 2 copies in 24 hours.

then the final item ended and i won that too, an american copy of after burner for £4 including shipping, with a free copy of the ninja, that was won this afternoon so next week will be a busy one for picking stuff up

I just picked up 3 new games for the Atari XL/XE. The 2 Sirius games are still sealed and absolutely mint!

I was really pleased to grab these as I had never even heard of them so they can't be very common and got a great price on them!

PS4 and Second Son. Im a fan of all Sony consoles but im not liking PS4 at all :? Im sending mine back because it hardly even works! And the little ive played of Second Son hasn't impressed me either. The jumping/fighting is awful. Looks wise is no huge improvement on PS3 :o I realise some might think im being daft or outrageous (even trolling Playstation fans) but long time members will know that's not my style. Im just telling you like it is (in my opinion): PS4 has certainly not WOW'ed me (which makes me rather sad as like I say, huge fan of previous consoles).

Dahna was £12 off a Japanese seller on Amazon and bloody brilliant scrolling fighter like a cross between the 2 Rastan Games and Willow and looks awesome

I like Wonder Momo, Energy is not to bad certainly better than Keith Courage.. What is the name if the snap Namcot game next to Ninja Warriors as it's really good? Reminds me of Saturn Prikura Dasicussion (sorry can't spell it)

traded in some old games and got:

Dark Souls (prepare to die edition)

Bully (scholarship edition)


both on the 360, Bully is currently for sale on xbla but always wanted the disk release as it's not often you see it and it's one of those rare games that seems to have held its value really well.
