I bought it for Baseball Stars 2, and Burning Fight. Any of the other games on this I have already got on other completions or have played before.

Just picked up a sealed copy of half life orange box for the 360 from cash converters.

Been wanting a copy in decent condition for ages but they always seem to be a pretty high price for one in a pretty beat up condition.

Time to start dreaming for the next instalment :lol:

Got a some new bits for my collection that I'm over joyed with (well, my wallet wasn't!):

Image
Popeye Game & Watch Table Top

Image
Snoopy Game & Watch Table Top

Image
Donkey Kong Jr Game & Watch Table Top

Image
Mario's Cement Factory Game & Watch Table Top

It was a pain to find a perfect place to store the four games, as they were just slightly too big for several spots, so I had to play Tetris with my collection to make room. I've now got 41/60 G&W handhelds in my collection (all boxed). Unfortunately most of the remaining 19 are now incredibly expensive so I'll be getting them one every few months from now on!

Found FIFA 13 for the PS2 for £8 in CEX today. Ironically the PS3 version was also available for 50p...

PS2 version is much rarer and more desirable (goes for £15-£20 on ebay)...
