I had completely forgotten that I was after this. I once saw it in CEX (I know) for £20 but it had one of the parts missing so I left it.

I received two Wii games myself today thanks to Megamixer. The games were Mario Bros. Wii and Secret Files: Tunguska. He also sent me Crazy Frog Racer because he hates me. :lol:

In all seriousness we were discussing bad games so he has sent it to me to try.

I had Mickey's Magical Quest turn up at the beginning of the week. Thanks to multiple continues I've completed it too.
Great game.

Just turned up in the post, right after I posted the last lot.

I am a huge Capcom fan, and I am a huge marvel fan so busy trying to get all the Capcom vs fighters and Capcom fighting games featuring the marvel characters.

also decided to give this a blast. interested to see how tempest, missile command, and breakout work with the paddle controller.

picked up another first party controller S for the OG Xbox today for the nice price of £2.50 thanks to some haggling and also picked up morrowind and Terminator the redemption for 50p each due to being ex rental and without covers

Hi Rodimus. I would gladly take the spare off your hands when the time comes :) . Absolutely love artbooks but I don't have Design Works for some reason.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I'm guessing Missile Command will play very badly with the paddle. :wink:

Where did you get the controller? Never even knew they existed, wouldn't mind getting one myself.

yeah thinking about it you need to move up and down as well.

Ebay, someone listed the game and controller together and I was intrigued. cheap enough to try out. Not actually a fan of those games and would never bother, but interested to try them with the controller.

If I am not to keen I will give you a shout for first refusal if you want.

A bit late to the party.....

PS3 Super Slim 500 GB
It was on Gumtree for £120, brand new, sealed.

Worth a punt.
