    I just love that cover and it's definitely one I'm hoping to pick up sometime. I've not played it but it's a good looking game. Great pick up there.

    It is a nice looking shooter, the music ain't half bad either BUT it is one tough cookie ...took me ages just trying to complete the 1st level.

    You know I said it was going to be my last megadrive game for a while well urrrm errr I got offered a shooter for a bargain from the same guy I bought a few off eBay Japan a while back.

    I'm just weak I know :)

    Still waiting on a few things to arrive, but I do have some updates to my Capcom collection:

    Mickey's Magical Quest 1-3 for Snes and GBA. Very happy especially with MQ3 for both systems as the condition for both is excellent. 1 for both less so, but I mainly brought them to play so no big deal!

    I spy a pal box in your pics to ;)

    I rather like Mickey Mania myself. When I first played that game , I thought my tv was broke as the first level was black and white, I restarted my snes loads of times to see if it fixed the colour issue ....yes I was daft when I was young. :)

    2 PAL boxes - MQ1 for the Snes and MQ3 for the GBA. The Snes game I've had for ages and dont really see the need to replace it for now (its a cheap replacement though if I do change my mind). The GBA game was more because I just can't find the Japanese version at all! So I settled for a PAL version in fantastic condition.

    Thanks :) I aimed for good condition versions as this is for my Capcom collection, plus its either this or ones that are in pretty bad condition (old Nintendo boxes really have no in between, it either looks great or awful!)

    I've only finished the first game in the series but enjoyed it very much. Really looking forward to playing all of them through as part of my Capcom playthrough.

    Whoa, those Magical Quest Mickey games look cool! I might need to keep my eyes open for them next time I'm on a retro gaming event

    I bought Super Skidmarks on the MD today from a charity shop. £9.99, but it looks unplayed. Forgot I had this as a kid so I'm pleased to have bought it

    Super SF2 X, Vampire Savior and Puzzle Fighter for the Dreamcast (I already had CVS Pro). These are pretty pricey/rare these days so I'm glad to add them to my collection! (plus its always nice to buy more DC games)

    I love the Opa Opa in the Fantasy Zone series. I should really track them down myself sometime. No pics, but I got a few Sega games myself this week - Daytona 2001 and 18 Wheeler on the DC and House of the Dead on the Saturn. Looking forward to playing some coin op goodness this week!
