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.
F*ck it, I've cancelled it.

Not as much as I would have been judging from all the other reviews of it.

Sega GT on dreamcaast for £1.99. Wish I could find a dreamcast game without a broken case. Must be worth more than Radiant Silvergun!

:lol: I wonder if it was Sega's case design or 1000 fools that managed to break those cases as half of my pre owned stuff had bad cases.

I picked up ‘Soldier of fortune’, ‘Quake III Arena’, and ‘Hidden and Dangerous’ for the Dreamcast, all for £4 from a car boot sale.

Not bad, as they don't often appear for the £1.99 BOGOF in game-station ;)


I also got 'Re Volt' from CashGenerators for .99p

I've been looking for that game for ages, and can't find it anywhere!

I'd get it for ether the PS2 or Xbox, I'm not fussy!

It was an ebay purchase - would a print out of the ebay receipt count??? However if you add the postage on top, it goes over a quid (I think postage was £1)

Sega Bass Fishing for the Dreamcast, so I can finally try my fishing controller out and yes I know it works with other games, and some game called Halo 3, not sure if anybodies heard of it though.
