Got a US Nes coming so I can finally play my games in 60Hz which should turn up this week :D
Also managed to find a complete copy of Megaman 7, now I only need to find Megaman X3.

I also got cheap copies of Spiderman the animated series for Snes and Megadrive as well as Sipderman Separation Anxiety for the Megadrive.

Vagrant Story PS1 - I've heard good things about it, bought the game got it home and found that an official Sony Memory card had been left in the box, Result!!

Ikaruga DC - Been playing this to death on the gamecube, managed to score a copy of the DC version for a good price. 3 reasons why I'm buying this 1. Really intreagued to see how it plays and is presented on the DC 2. Another game to add to my DC shooter collection 3. Good price

It was, until the recent PSP release.

Never liked it as much as the first. I'm wondering if I should give the X-box CT3 a chance. Anybody know if the backwards compatibility for this is ok on the 360?

Last week I acquired Halo 3, Sega Rally and Skate all on 360.
Too much gameplay, too little time :(

I'll let you know when I get it, When I said I've got in the post I meant they're in transit, sorry. I've only read one review of it but they gave it a decent write up and it was only 25 quid so I thought why not.

I almost bought Brunswick for Mrs Ant last week, but the videos and reviews I've seen online ripped it to shreds. Weirdly, there's no 'behind the player' view when you're actually bowling and the motion controls are very poor. From the reviews I read, it appears the game is a straight conversion from PS2 with limited motion control tagged on. Wii Sports blows it away for playability.

Maybe felgekarp will convince us otherwise, but I'm not taking a punt on it based on those reviews.

Good luck on the Game & Watch's. 1 day I want to amass a collection but for now I'm content with Mario Bros, Zelda and Donkey Kong Junior!

Today I got lucky though and got a copy of SOUKYUGURENTAI complete for £20. Can't wait to get it!
