Scarface for the Wii - Tricky to control but looks like it could be good.
The dry fart for Barry MacDermot and all the cancer patients in the Glamorgan testicle ward

Having sold a bunch of stuff on Ebay last week for around £150 I felt obliged to 'reinvest' some of that money in my Paypal account on the following:

Saturn Games (all Japanese versions)
The Game Paradise (AKA Game Tengoku)
Super Puzzle Fighter II
Golden Axe - The Duel
House of the Dead
Nazomakaimura Incredible Toons - finally found a copy of this obscure Ghosts N Goblins themed puzzler for under £20 (way under actually!)

Other Stuff
Final Soldier (PC-Engine)
Capcom vs SNK 2000 (Dreamcast)
Ghostbusters (Megadrive)
BMX Simulator and The Equaliser (Commodore 64)

Whole lot cost around £70 including postage - not a bad haul!

Just missed out on a copy of Ikaruga but did manage to get me this:

A PCB of Violent Storm by Konami that set me back £50 (which I though was a good price.)

for anyone that hasn't played it, imaging what Final Fight would have been like if Konami made it instead of Capcom and you got this game, fantastic music as well (like X-men and Turtles)

Gunstar Super Heroes and a double pack of Paperboy and Rampage for the GBA in the US - worked out just under £7 for both, mint and sealed.

Spurned a ton of original cart only GB games, which were all under $2, many under $1. Pretty much all the Marios, Donkey Kong Jr, Link's Awakening... absolutely loads more. Most of which I already have anyway, but I can't pretend I wasn't tempted at the prices. :D
