I got Sonic Forces through the post yesterday. Gave it a try out. Pretty standard modern sonic, feels a bit watered down and they've really done a disservice with the lack of animal choices for the avatar. They could've made it all singing all dancing for a fun experience.

As it sits the game is ok at best. Maybe the difficulty will pick up once all the characters have met.

Trip into Croydon this weekend left me £40 lighter! I found a nice Atari Lynx carry case, a Philips CD-I FMV cartridge, so now all my CD-I's have a one, and the Domark Star Wars games on the Atari St.

Metroid Prime Trilogy. 8)

The physical disk was actually cheaper on CEX than it would cost for me to download it for the Wii U and buy an external hard drive to store it.

Also got some retro downloads in the eshop sale, got Zelda: Oracle Of Ages and Oracle Of Seasons on the 2DS, and Super Mario World, Zelda: A Link To The Past and Super Metroid for the wii U.

Got Watch Tower for the Amiga 1200 the other day. A cross between Ikari Warriors, Cannon Fodder and the Chaos Engine, sort of.

at the German Comicon last week some did also sell retrogames

i picked up 2 Playstation 2 games, namelijk Daemon Summoner (which is apparently immensely crap) and Kuon

i already have Kuon but the guy was selling a copy, CIB, for 4£, so i decided to pick that one up and try to sell it through later on

I have just ordered Street Fighter alpha 3 max for PSP. Didn't realise they'd made it with all the GBA characters!
Content wise its probably the best version of Alpha 3 ever. As you point out it has every character including Eagle, Maki and Yun from the GBA version and it even includes Ingrid from Capcom Fighting Evolution (don't think she was in the GBA version?)
Plus it has even more modes - you get a brand new tag team styled mode which is really rad. Only issue is the d pad on the PSP, so if you can get the digital version and play it on a Vita for pretty much the best experience possible. I've put quite a bit of time on this version.
it does how ever not recconise the bigger memory cards for some reason but i'm looking forward to the new 30th anniversary collection it has my favourite ones in street fighter 1(I always liked the visuals of it even though it plays like cack) and the original street fighter 2
This guy are sick
