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.

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?
Renegade is indeed on there, in addition to its Nekketsu Koha Kunio-Kun Japanese version.
That sounds class I will have to invest in that. Btw what’s your opinion of the Snes Kunio-Kun scrolling fighter? Is the all female scrolling fighter on the PC Engine cd an a official Kunio-Kun game or just a spin off?

Picked up the 'After Hours' limited edition of Yakuza 6 from Amazon. They had it for £50-something (reduced) and I had a £20 voucher so it was around £35 in the end. Very pleased with that. Nice set which even comes with a pair of bar glasses.

Just need to grab the steelbook edition of Kiwami 2 now and my collection will be complete. Just need to get them all played then! Nearly done Yakuza 5 and then it will be onto all of the PS4 games next.

Ooh, yes - would definitely be interested :)

I'd given up finding it to be honest. Only have CEX's left around me and the Vita stock is always trash.

Its a nice edition for sure. One of the few times where a CE wasn't insanely priced and didn't feel like a cheap POS.

Speaking of Yakuza, I've got my import copy of Judge Eyes. I started it last weekend and am already glued to it. A detective game based in Yakuza's universe was something I wanted for years and now its here and is somehow better than I imagined (kinda feels like Yakuza, LA Noire and Phoenix Wright all mixed together). Great side content as well, gonna be playing this for months. Which will make next weeks PS4 remaster of Yakuza 4 difficult to start! (but I'm buying it anyway!)

Yeah I was really pleased with it, especially since I almost bought a different SE (card slipcase and some sort of DLC?) before seeing that this one was a thing.

Heard good things about Judge Eyes. Unfortunately I've fallen behind on playing the main series games since I didn't do much gaming at all over the past few years. Need to catch up!

Marvel was still there so I picked it up if you still want it? Funny they had more Vita games then 360 games. They also had around 15 cheap Wii U with the 50% off. Xenoblade Wii U and Batman £2.50, Splatoon was £6 etc

Renegade is indeed on there, in addition to its Nekketsu Koha Kunio-Kun Japanese version.
That sounds class I will have to invest in that. Btw what’s your opinion of the Snes Kunio-Kun scrolling fighter? Is the all female scrolling fighter on the PC Engine cd an a official Kunio-Kun game or just a spin off?
I actually didn't know they had anything on the PC Engine CD. I'll have to check into that. I am aware of the SNES Kunio-Kun scrolling fighter though, but unfortunately I haven't played it yet. I'm almost worried it might disappoint me since the series' visual charm, to me, seems so tightly bound to the NES style.
On a related note, I did recently buy River City Ransom Underground but haven't played it yet (my computer is old and needs replaced). It looks like an absolute blast based on videos I've seen.

I do a fair bit of buying and selling of retro games as a means of helping with the finances. If I was to post what I was buying and selling each week, you'd be seeing a heap of snes, megadrive, n64, ps2 and xbox games.

It’s called Ane-San and it’s also related to the Cho Aniki games sharing the same composer, Koji Hayama.

It’s a nice looking game with awesome music, but it doesn’t have the NES games Super deformed characters. The girls and the enemies all wear the same clothing making me think it’s a Kunio Kun game.

Picked up a copy of Corporation for the Mega Drive. Also a collection of some old Mean Machines Sega magazines, ones I had missed back in the day so am reading them for the first time!
