Just picked up Clu Clu Land for £3 and Elite for £4.20 on the NES. Both usually go for £15 plus so chuffed to bits :)

I'm finding it hard to find games I want now, as most of the stuff I want cost £200+ per PCB. :lol:

I'm wondering if I should go JP Mega Drive or JP Dreamcast right now.

Probably Dreamcast though, or Neo Geo MVS.

MVS would suite you down to the ground - its phenomenal if you don't care about game boxes.

Yeah. There's a single slot JAMMA MVS on eBay at the mo and the guy wants £45. He's also selling Puzzle Bobble for £18.

MVS cart prices are really high compared to last year, there were many single figure carts - now there is nothing cheaper than £18. :?

Also I got these:

There's not that much point going Jp Dreamcast. Most of the decent stuff had a PAL release and runs in 60hz. The few Jp games worth picking up you can run on a PAL DC anyway with a DC-X. Also, be aware that some Jp games don't support RGB.

Don't mind those with rose-tinted glasses, KOF XI is far better than '98, and its superior to Garou: Mark of the Wolves and The Last Blades and all - a technical fighting fan's wet dream it is! :D
