what a treasure trove, if i could have i would have bought everything, i picked out 2 systems and the games for them:

snes, cib copies of mario all stars, super punch out, starwing, kevin keegan, prince of persia, lemmings, mario kart, super tennis, cart only mario world, striker, nigel mansell, donkey kong and another copy of super punch out.
md games- sonic 2, 3 and spinball
ms 2 boxed, copies of star wars, r-type, land of illusion, sonic 2, shinobi, bomber raid, world class leader board and a couple of others

it set me back *mumble mumble* pounds
To be fair, for 90 I think that's a great pick up, do you have pics to upload

Fantastic buy for "mumble mumble" pounds......

The amount of times I have spent "mumble mumble" pounds on gaming items and such :-p
*mumble mumble* sounds better than 90 lol

Being on holiday for 2 weeks is a dangerous thing!

Got Sacred 3 and Battlefield 4 from CEX. Both games had DLC codes which worked which was a nice bonus

^^^ I recently sold a CIB VGC copy of Morrowind GOTY so if I'd had known you were after it, I would have let it go to you for a good price...

Managed to sell it on ebay (from a 99p start) for around £30 though :shock: . Had no idea that this game had shot up in value so much (was around the £15-£20 maximum mark the last time I looked).
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

This one cost me £25. Still, I should get into the habit of asking on the forum first.

I think the reason why it is high value is because you can copy on PC mods to your xbox and they will work.

After finally getting all my Megadrive stuff in one place at the weekend I've decided to add to the collection (not so much decided to as failed to resist the temptation actually). I've just picked up a copy of Story of Thor which I've never played but heard good things about. I'm also thinking about a copy of RC Grand Prix which I hope will work with my master system adapter (my copy of Wonder Boy in Monster Land doesn't but Wonder Boy 1 and Dragon's Trap are both fine).

I was just chuffed to get a handful of Jaguar games. They're not the easiest things to come by. Especially for a reasonable price. Over here in Dublin there wasn't that many stores that stocked them, what 20 odd years ago? So there wasn't that many of them here in the first place.

Only got my console a couple of weeks ago for a few quid. So I'm pleased to have a few games for it now. Other than the bloody dreadful Kasumi Ninja…. Which I now have two copies of. :?

Got some orders in the post yesterday, as well as a haul of cheapies down at the local CEX.

A couple more.

The Dark Souls 2 outer plastic sleeve is a bit tatty but all the contents are pristine as is the inner box.

I'm glad places like that still exist. I don't really understand how they keep afloat, but am happy they do! It's a shame they don't have more space, as they could put on gaming evenings, etc.

Famous DC collector? :?:
I imagine that'd be Adam Koralik, who has a channel on YouTube that I subscribe to; he's uploaded a few videos in the last week or so from a recent visit to the UK.

He visited and posted in-store tours of Super Tomato in Cardiff, Next Level Games in Pontypridd and Gotham Games in Lincoln, (he may have visited more shops, but that's as much as he has uploaded so far...). Of the three, I've only visited Gotham Games, (so far), which I thought was a rather cool shop.

Quite a good channel in my view - worth a look certainly.
