I was quite lucky to get in on the first print, it's a pretty good quality release. Will be cranking up the Engine at the weekend to have a blast.

Been a while since I bough anything (having just had a huge clearout), but saw Eternal Darkness and Mario Toadstool golf both for Gamecube in a charity shop for 50p each and had to snag them.

Picked up Pool Paradise for the Cube today.

Was on my list of Cube games to pick up but I cannot remember how old the list is and couldn't remember if I owned it or not so either I have just picked up a game that I was after or have picked up a duplicate.

Last one for this week but it's close to being mint and I got it for a good price (I think):

Nice. Its a great port and much better with a PS2 pad over the DC. If you paid £15 or less you got it right :wink:

£9.99 on an ebay BIN. Had a feeling that it was a good price so I snapped it up while doing random searches.

I picked up Lemmings 2 for the Mega Drive on Saturday. I've always been a big fan of Lemmings but for some reason I've always glossed over the sequel.

Not too sure what I think of it, the new actions are fun but the game is so overly confusing when compared to the original title due to the new actions. It's definitely intended to be played by hardcore fans of the original as the difficulty is a lot higher from the word go, It would certainly alienate anyone who has not played one of the games before.
