Loving the message on screen :lol: and cool that an Ultimate Play The Game title was among the included games.
Thanks :) As it happens, Atic Atac was one of my favourite Ultimate games (Jetpac has to take No.1 slot) but unfortunately i can't play any of the games as it didn't have the cassette cable and i don't have one spare. (My other Speccy is a +2) I tested the sound and the speaker works fine.

All in all, very pleased indeed. Especially as the whole package came to the grand total of ........£5 :shock: :mrgreen:
:D :D :D :D Bargain! :D :D :D :D

The Missus got me another DS for my birthday (as I'd sold my phatboy DS a couple of years ago), which came with Scooby Doo, Brain Training, Maths Training, Animal Crossing (never played the Animal Crossing games, so can't wait to try it), Theme Park, some Tamagotchi game, Super Monkey Ball Touch 'n' Roll and....erm....Cooking Mama. Played a bit of Theme Park this morning, and it plays ok. Cooking Mama isn't even being touched :lol:

More Japanese PS2 games. cant get enough of my fighters at the moment. Pics in relevant thread :D

there are still quite a few im after.....

Shin Gouketuji Ichizoku (Power Instinct?) - looks like a decent 2D fighter although the price is always above £30-£40 :(

Melty Blood Actress Again - i own the first game although this is another that always sits at a high price

wouldnt mind a few other anime based games. FullMetal Alchemist Dream Carnival looks like a fun Smash Bros clone and would mind Soul Eater Battle Resonance
as i loved the anime

Ps1 plus a massive arcade (official?!) fighting stick. Plus 20 games.
The catch...
Almost nothing in the title, almost zero description, no pictures of the games, none of the games listed. A shade under 40quid, posted.
Could be great, could be utter tripe.

I picked up Colin Mcrae Dirt 2, 3 and Showdown for a grand total of £10 off of Steam. I'd been waiting to get one of them cheap so this seemed like a decent bargain. I really enjoyed the first Dirt game on the PC so I'm looking forward at giving these a try.

I picked up and are currently downloading Colin McRae DiRT 2 for £3.39 from Steamworks too as part of the same promotion. I've read that it's more about racing than DiRT 3 with it's gymkhana nonsense and that many gamers prefer it. That was me sold on the game. (I already own DiRT 3 and DiRT Showdown so didn't buy the bundle)

Dirt 3 tried to go back to the rallying roots (the pure rallying on Dirt 3 is better than the rallying on Dirt 2), but overall Dirt 2 is the better game. Still a lot of 'flash' and not enough rainy sunday afternoon rallying in the welsh hills, but it's great fun.

I shall be buying the steam bundle tonight too, got them all (and completed them all) on 360, but i'm starting to get cheap PC games so that when I get a new PC later in the year I'll have a ton of stuff ready to roll with. (they will just about run on my PC now though to be fair)

I've done that too, i.e. buying a few games on PC that I already own on PS3 when they're on sale at super cheap prices. The difference in quality is generally quite staggering.
