    Rather than taking over The stats guys megadrive thread, thought i'd make another one for all things retro that anyone has bought recently.

    My arrivals today ,

    ^ Nice. The Saturn has so many great shooters. A few months ago I worked out a trade on another forum for the Famicom Mini GBA box sets.

    They are fantastic mate. I've never seen anything like those before. Are they old or a newly made thing? I must admit I've kind of done about 95% of the retro collecting that I feel I want, if this thread came up a couple years back I'd be posting regular. Nowadays its mostly games I hear mentioned that are unknowns that I pick up. I have bought a few Wii and OG Xbox and PS2 games in the last couple werks. I'll have to post a pic. Does Wii and Xbox count? I don't want to pollute the thread. I was tempted by Night Trap in CeX today, but my wallet was a little short of the £290 price tag ;)

    I have a couple of special sega saturn promo packs...but i bought them ages ago. I pick up all sorts of unusual stuff though running out of space now.

    Post away and if you need any hints or tips on xbox games i have the full uk released original set all 500+ somthing with a few of the european/australian exlusives thrown in to.

    Yes I agree, the artwork on most jpn ntsc games is on another level compared to the european ones , dont get me wrong there are some stunners from the west but the east wins hands down 90% of the time imo :)

    Im always amazed at what the ole Gameboy is capable of. I never had one as a kid but I did play it in Currys (or Dixons I can't remember) at a display stand and it did feel special back then. I didn't have a Gamegear either but I loved playing it at our schools after school social club. Damn Sonic was so good.

    This is a bit shameless ninty72 and co, but I happen to sell retro Saturn and Dreamcast shmups on my ebay page (although I did just recently sell about 5 shmups so not so many listed during this time of writing). If you're ever interested in any, I can obviously sell them cheaper, privately.

    That's actually really good! Did you take those pics yourself, or did you actually buy them?

    Incidentally, Lylat Wars was pretty much the only game on the N64 that I truly loved, mainly for the awesome multiplayer. One of the first 4 player games I ever played. It's one of only three N64 titles I'd bother to play nowadays (I was always more of a Saturn and PSX fan back in the day).

    Another week and a cracker of a game I've been after a while has arrived today ,

    [​IMG]

    I mean look at the artwork , it makes you want to have a play, no food for me this week as it's one of the more expensive games to buy , had to buy it before it goes up again like most retro these recent years. If you didn't know its a platformer ! ;) :)

    By looking at the gameplay on yt it looks more like shmup ;)

    Is this for the Sega Mega Drive ? There is no sign on the cover of what the platform is.

    No , have a look on ebay most are asking around the 100 mark for it , it's because it's ntsc jpn, ntsc usa has always been cheaper for most games.

    Plus megadrive sounds much better than Genesis , i mean have you heard there 1991 We cant dance album ? Cheap and nasty lol ;)

    It's not a bad little shmup. I'm struggling to remember the other cheaper one I bought a while back. I can't believe even the Genesis version has gone up since I bought it. I only bought it because it was there in front of me when I bought something else. I better check what I'm missing before I have to sell some kidneys to afford them.

    My retro collecting falls into two categories.

    1: Mega Man
    2: Anything Capcom (not counting Mega Man!)

    All my Mega Man pics are stuck on an old photo bucket account, but I do have this nice pic:
    [​IMG]image by gouki16uk, on Flickr

    Its of my "rare area" of Mega Man stuff that relates to the more difficult to find bits. Not counting the boxed/Snes/Gameboy/NES releases of the games which were pretty pricey as well!

    And my most recent Capcom purchases:

    I'm working my way through all the Capcom games/ports they've done through the years (as in, buying and playing them). I'm up to the end of 1990 now. Its great fun to play a back catalogue like Capcoms. So many classics.

    Do you prefer the JPN versions? I agree the artwork is usually better but I tend to go with the cheaper versions myself, especially if its an English release. There are some on the Genesis/MD that are just crazy prices no matter which one you go for though.
