Tobal no 1 in a charity shop. Minty. Now I can sell off my used copy which cost me a fair bit more than the 1.50 I just paid. Its not a great game but I love it.

Not sure if im unhappy that Blaster Master(ps1) was missing from its box in the same shop. They also had a shed load of magazine cover discs but the shop owner is quite tight with prices so they'll be about 1.00 each.

As Magical Hat I bought that for 49p a week ago. Now have both versions but not sure which I prefer.

Bought a PS3 off a friend from work, he only wanted £10 (console, power lead and a wired pad), said he was having trouble with the video output since changing TV so why the hell not. Got it home, plugged it in, went through the motions of doing a video/AV reset via the power button/s and then the settings (followed a guide on line) and now have a really nice condition 60gb PS3 sat under the telly with no issues :)...bargain

now to buy some games at the weekend now

Wind Waker HD.

Traded in a big bunch of games at Game, and was pleasantly surprised to get 25% extra value as Wind Waker is still classed as a new release. Plus I ended up with £3 credit left over too.

PS2 game is the original, 360 game the sequel. I'm after both...just saying in case anybody comes across a spare after picking up copies for themselves :wink:

The first one was one of those weird ones like Ar Tonelico that was only released in certain European countries; a typical 505 'classic' move. The sequel was actually published by Atari and I remember seeing it in shops over here but it was very low-key and quickly disappeared.

I should also say that people complaining about certain anatomy in Dragon's Crown obviously never saw the character art for the Magna Carta games :wink:
