That's a joke, right? Like Monkey Tennis?
Nope its a real game, hit a golf ball, hit some ninjas, hit it again, more ninjas

Also Monkey tennis is a thing in the Sega Tennis games

I got Shinobi X for the Saturn again, first time since my childhood. Now, I have an issue. Hopefully someone with the game can clarify.

When I had the game as a child, the game would often freeze at the title screen after I pressed start. I assumed this was maybe down to my copy being dodgy or maybe scratched in a area of the disc which was tough to read, so I just traded it in to Cex back in the day, who were happy to take it. Now, 20 years later I have repurchased the game off of ebay. Low and behold, the exact same freeze is happening again. It's not the same Saturn I had 20 years ago either, if you think that.

Is this a known issue for this game on the Saturn? It's surely not the same copy as mine from 20 years ago. Problem is, I can't find this issue ANYWHERE online, and I need to know that this isn't a strange freaky issue for just me.

@DPrinny I want a CD32 so bad and I'm not even sure why :lol:

The price is just too high for me though so probably will never own one.

Got this import of a compilation of all the NES Kunio-Kun (River City Ransom/Street Gangs related) games. 18 games in total, including all 3 Double Dragon games, Super Dodge Ball, the aforementioned RCR/SG, and all 6 of its sequels/spinoffs.

Got these over the Christmas period, the 2 Xbox games and the the last of us were presents from the Mrs, I bought the other 2 myself.

Also picked this up new and sealed for 4 quid. Bargain I thought but it's arrived and it's the Spanish version, voices are English but all text Spanish or Japanese 😔 sure it'll still play fine

Also finally brought Turok 2 remaster on the PC, its really good and looks great. Hopefully now I can finally complete the game without my save corrupting

Way too many 360, XBone, and Switch downloads to name (Thasnks Xmas Sales)

One Piece Unlimited Cruise 1- £5 (A steal on ebay. Normally a £20-ish game plus the uncommon English version.)

A Donald Duck Disney Infinity figurine- £4 (Hey......it's the classic blue sailor suit angry Donald we all know and love. Was probably doing the store a favor by picking up one of their many reduced DI figurines anyhow. :lol: )
3DS FC= 0301-9774-9044

PM me if you add me.

J.J. do they have the NES Kunio Kun game that had a graphic makeover to became Renegade over here?

I know on the Gameboy the Kunio Kun game became Double Dragon 2 over here, so I assume the NES versions are kept as Double Dragon?

Liking the look of that Kunio Kun collection...doubly so since I see there is a PS4 version as well.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Renegade is indeed on there, in addition to its Nekketsu Koha Kunio-Kun Japanese version.
