Doesn't help that a whole heap of them got delisted due to licensing reasons, which probably drove up the price. Deadpool was among them, but a deal has been worked out as that is getting a PS4/Xbox One release. Edge of Time is a great game in my opinion with bad villains. I'm amazed that between classic and 2099 they manage to get next to no villains in the game (and no good ones at that). Its my one complaint with the game, after Shattered Dimensions knocked it out of the park in that respect I was a tad disappointed.
I have very vague memories of playing edge of time and what you say sounds bang on. I've found deadpool online for about 15 quid but I really want it under a tenner :oops: . Shattered Dimensions definitely seems to be the best of the bunch and tellingly it's one I've never, ever seen in a store.

Premier manager 64 boxed and complete £5, Sega Master system Joystick £5 both from CEX.
Jimmy White's whirlwind snooker £1 from CC

PS1/PS2 compatible Ferrari Steering wheel from RSPCA £2.
That's awesome your cex do mega drive and n64 games, all the ones local to me and slowly stopping ps2 / GameCube and don't go that far back

Where is it out of interests?
Colchester, the other pawn shops in the town are worth a look as well as they often get retro games in. BHF on the high street is worth looking in as well as they pat test electrics and sometimes get consoles like the PS2 in. There was 1 going for £15 with all leads and 2 controllers not long ago so I gave a heads up on here about it. I wonder if anyone from here bought it?

I currently have one for n64, I have limited space where I currently live so the ever drive is perfect, I think the snes will be my next one
