You can pick that one up cheap anyway mate, i got a new/sealed one on ebay for £6. The rarest one is Cocoto Kart Racer, had to get mine from France, iirc.

Friend brought over my modded 50 60hz Master System 1 which I swapped of him and a few more games R Type, Tom and Jerry and something called Sagaia.. Look forward to trying these

Any idea if Psychic World, Laser Ghost and Quartet are any good? Also after the Castlevania rip off Master of Darkness

Streets of Rage 3 on MD for £15 :D no manual, though, but chuffed to bits, though. Wad going to sell it on, but after trying it out, i reconsidered and have stuck it underneath SOR II. They also had Super Fantasy Zone as well, which im gonna pick up on Friday.

^ I've never got the SOR3 hate.
Yes, the music is nowhere near as good but you can't really blame Koshiro for wanting to experiment as it was likely that whatever he came up with would have been compared unfavourably to the first two.

It's still a very good beat-em-up in its own right.

psychic world- yes
laser ghost- infinitely better with lightgun
quartet- not got

master of darkness is fantastic (quite expensive though), dracula is brilliant too but similarly pricey

I vaguelly remember playing Dracula on my friends Master System on his black and white tv.. I remember those three vampire women you couldn't kill so I'm guessing it must have been based on the Gary Oldman Dracula.. Master of Darkness looks supurb and plays really well from what little I played of it through emulation.. Speaking of Gun games I remember Op Wolf being brilliant espically with the gun

Beautiful.

My Amazon order has been dispatched so I'm praying that they actually send me the CE that I ordered for £39.99. I'll know either way very soon!

Quite proud of my little non retro pile today - mainly bought to give some more modern games and series a try.

Infamous 2,
Uncharted ,
Uncharted 2 ,
Need for Speed The Run ,
Killzone 2 ,
Ratchet and Clank Tools of Destruction

and best of all

The Last of Us for £4.99

Yes ok its not a massive bargain but it was for me as ive been umming over it for ages and that was the cheapest yet.

Looking forward to a 3 day weekend to catch up on all my PS3 purchases over last few months - including CoD Blops , Mirrors Edge , Sonic Generations and the list above.

Keeping my fingers crossed that my megadrive owning customers collection may also soon be mine - going to check it out tomorrow. Claims he has a MD/MCD and loads of games. We shall see.

Didn't think Amazon would honor this for £39.99, but it just arrived. :D
