As with a lot of games, that Japanese artwork on Shadow Dancer and Strider is much better than the western art.

Keep meaning to pick up Deception at some point. Bought Trapt off you a while ago Shin and really enjoyed what I've played of it.

I recently purchased an indigo gamecube came with a controller and some surprises. Waiting for the package to arrive on Monday. :shock:
Today I also purchased a fat playstation 2 it came with 2 memory cards, a controller, hookups and bought Star Wars and SSX.
Been gaming for 20 years and just started collecting.

A Nintendo Virtual Boy with Wario Land 3D. Weirdly enough the console is better than I expected but its still deeply floored in its design. Still, Wario Land is an excellent game that feels more like a proper sequel to Mario Land 3 than any of the other Wario Land games that came after it so that's a huge plus. Seeing that there are only 20 odd officially released games (in Japan) I might be tempted to go for a full collection!

I think I've said it before but I worked on KZV, and everyone should play it.

Some new pickups

some new games to start with, really enjoying both of these games at the minute.

Image


Picked this up, works great with the Retron 5 and the master system games look really really nice through the retron 5's HDMI


Image



and Some games to go with it. I am busy trying to collect all the games in my favourite series such as golden axe, wonderboy, shinobi etc. now I can add the master system versions.


Image


got these for my outrun collection.

Image



Some upgrades, could not resist them in this condition


Image



Got these, and to be honest I doubt I will be able to play them but I just wanted some games to try out my japanese PS2 with.


Image



klonoa. I have the UK version, but the japanese one for 99p was too good to turn down. Plus at long last a game I have been after for ages. I have the original Rally De Africa and now I have the follow up ( Rally De Europa ). complete Sega rally ripoffs but so much fun.


Image


Now for these, I was not really after buying any new consoles but these popped up and are in such nice condition I might as well add them to the collection.

Probably for the best.
Do a search for it on Youtube, there's a few reviews on the system.
And even an advert with Jackie Chan.
