"A diabolical game" - love it! I feel the need to track that down - back online now, obviously, so I'll be catching up with RetroCollect tonight.

In other news, I got Ghostbusters for the 360 yesterday, £6 from CEX. Been wanting to play that one for a long time :D

I bought mine manual-less for about £5 cheaper than the CIB I also saw on eBay. Makes sense considering it's the same manual as the standard Euro release. Shame though as I think I prefer the French artwork...

I didn't really look around, and just used the GenkiVideogames site - they were very friendly and happy even to just price things up.

So, I picked up the last part of the PC lot today. As I didn't know what the rest was I was hoping for another Might and Magic. No luck :( ;) :lol:

(Psycho Pinball and I Have No Mouth... are empty boxes)

Also got these in the mail today

And picked these up from Gamestop (30% off sale), only paid 4€ for the NEW PSP games. That one's going to be a real rarity, I tell, you. And a good game too so it might fetch quite a price one day.

Good price! :) Was it a low print run as there are copies going for about £11 on eBay at the moment. Perhaps I'd better pick one up now.

Well everything by 505 games is pretty limited and this is a niche console genre too. So yeah, if you're actually interested in the game or after a full PSP set I'd grab it now. The PSP probably won't generate enough collectors interest to make this a real investment but I'm sure the price will go up.

Not a failure just undersupported and its main rival is the DS. I think most handhelds would struggle against that.

My brother dropped off about 10 x PS2 games for me yesterday (cost me $10) ... and boy, there is a whole heap of crap in there! My step-sister is also looking at getting rid of her XBOX and all the games, so I have to get in contact with her today.

Just bought Hang On for Master System on Sega Card. Unfortunately its the card alone, but it's one I don't already have, and I got it for cheap enough.

Not really 'bought', as such, but managed to get full PS2 promo versions of WRC2 Extreme, WRC3 and Namco Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2 for nowt this afty, one of the kids' wards was chucking them out so it would've been rude not to (also thought I'd share some of the WRC love that's been circulating on here recently).

Hybrid Heaven is ace, if a bit of a curate's egg, kind of a strategy wrestling game set in an explorable, beautifully-coloured alien world. It's truly odd (but definitely worth persevering with).

I was a Hybrid Heaven fan myself. Pumped a fair bit of time into it back in the day.

I would recommend WRC3 if you are going to play either. :)
