Well apart from getting Super Puzzle Fighter 2 X (JAP) for the Saturn at Fusion, I'm going a bit more Saturn crazy and scored a nice lot on French eBay:

Just €2.50 a game before postage!

I'm also watching a couple more lots at the moment.

I've just decided to start collecting retro stuff and got a nice pay packed from a commission so I was able to get a fair few goodies this week.

I bought a Mega Drive II console with Flashback, Lemmings, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure and censored Tracy.

I also bought Soul Caliber and Metropolis Street Racer for Dreamcast. :D
