        Assuming this is about a car, and not about your favourite waifu in Drive Girls, tough deal man! Ebay to sell what's left, Ebay to buy new parts to fix it, or Ebay for buying a new one? Good luck either way!

        The embossed "Gameboy Advance" at the top usually will look different, like sharper text, as that part is difficult to fake. The label graphic might be different, the round cutoff on the back will likely be smaller or if its the same size it should be smooth inside it not have the cutoff sticking up at all. That's without opening the cart tho. There are some good guides on the interwebs.

        Of all the games I played as a kid on the Megadrive and Amiga, the music from Ghouls n Ghosts on the Amiga basically defines my childhood. That and Turrican 2 music. I don't mind some self punishment as long as the difficulty is a challenge and not simply tedious. I'm still crap at it but I like giving it a go.

        I usually just spend mine £5 at a time on a lower spend

        they had a promotion on a few months back where you got an additional 50% points, I bought Ni No Kuni for £44, the reward voucher I should have received was £2.20 plus extra 50% so £3.30 total, but I actually received £22 credit

        so no complaints from me!

        Ah, now you mention it, I've only just made the connection! I wish it was HD output! I won't get to hook it all up till tonight or the weekend, but looking forward to it. CRT is great n'all, but I just don't have the space, so it feels like I have to move on. We're lucky we have options (Framemister etc).

        DojoDan no you don't.

        For a collector the english cover is nicer to have and £27.99 is cheaper than what some other listings ask.

        For a gamer however the german cover is enough, but to be really honest the game is meh so only someone who really wants a handball game on the Vita should buy it.

        It's a show where 4 contestants have to forge bladed weapons in 3 different rounds. The first round is 3 hours forge time. The second round is another 3 hours but no forge time, where they make them into proper weapons (handles etc). Then the weapons are tested in a series of brutal tests! The last round is at their home workshops, where they have to forge a complicated weapon within 5 days. It's really interesting!
