They're Disney Infinity 3.0 figures. It's one of those toys to life games where the figurines become playable characters that can be used in an absolute tonne of game modes. The statues themselves store the individual stats/abilities and levels. I actually really enjoy the game but I'd be lying if I said I was buying them just for that, they also look really really good on my shelf :oops: :lol:

Don't suppose they had any more Ultra Street Fighter IV did they?

I picked up Civilization: Beyond Earth and Arx Fatalis in the Steam Sale. There's some good games in there for less than a quid.

Has Ultra SF4 been released for PS4? I can only see it for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on ebay...

The only down side is that not all of the emulators available for the shield tablet are available for the TV but I am sure they will come.

It is without a doubt the best device for emulation I have used so far. :lol:
Bought one last week as I was using an old PC in the living room for a media player.
What emulators aren't available for tv?
I've tried a few and all work so far......
MupenPlus isn't available in the app store on the TV but you can install it from the web site or tablet.

I also sideloaded Dragons Lair 1, 2 and Space Ace. They looked superb.

Devils Third Wii u... prices all over the place on this at mo so finding it for £15 seems good.

Yes, apart from being a bit linier this is a decent title.

after a bit of a clearout I am back to picking up titles again

First up, a thank you to shinobi for doing a deal for these. Been after cannonspike for ages so a big thank you. He also threw in a reproduction of final fight 3 and a super famicom king of the monsters 2.

Image


Filling in a couple of gaps in my collection, had disc only copies of these so as per my new years resolution to replace all loose games with boxed copies and replace all missing manuals I upgraded to these.

Image

another couple of upgrades from cart only, and a nice condition Japanese copy of Bonk.

Image

finally a boxed complete copy, its the us version but I am happy with any region as long as its complete, just trying for a copy of war of the gems now.

Image

picked up this Japanese artbook, accidently ended up with 2 copies f this so will be looking to move one on once the other copy arrives.

Image

and this, not a fan or anything and never really bothered with the series but got this cheap as chips and thought it was worth picking up and giving a go. 2nd pic is what came in the box.
