Final Fight One is a great little game, I've been hooked on that on my Micro now for quite a few days. Perfect for a quick 10 minute bash. It looks almost arcade perfect on the little screen.

I'm only being honest but there's something very creepy about you making a sexual innuendo out of my comment and then posting a pic of a 5 year old girl.

Did that get an EU release do you know?

Anyway, popped into GAME/Gamestation/HMV today to see if they had any of the DS Castlevanias (going to get 'em before they get as rare as the GBA versions) and came away with zilch so went into Cash Generator and found a boxed/mint copy of Dragonball Advanced Adventure for a cool £5. I hear it's a pretty kick-ass 2D game so it's been on my list for a while :)
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

It IS a kick-ass game - probably the 3rd best GBA game ever, you'll love it :D

I've been trying to get into Darius R on the GBA but man, it is so hard and unfairly so. I'm really surprised how much Darius games can vary in quality. I mean compared to something like Darius Gaiden on Saturn, I don't expect the same quality aesthetics obviously but something that played remotely like it would have been nice, but it's just a missed opportunity I think. Shame cos there's very little in the way of shmups on the GBA.

Yup, can verify that for you mate. :)

EDIT: I forgot :oops: I also have Manic Miner, which plays a damn fine game. Graphically revamped, with rather eerie backgrounds. It plays faster than the original and is easier due to getting about 8 lives at the start, plus passwords after every 4 levels or so.

I always wanted Manic Miner but never got around to it. Is it quite rare?
