4mb, just the cheapest I could find, plus I wasn't sure how size related to blocks. I had a black 251 block official memory card but not sure if that's 4mb or if this is 59, I probably should have checked!

@mrjelly If it says mb instead of blocks then it's definitely a third party. 251 blocks is usually the way to go, as 59 is too small and the 1019 is more unreliable.

I thought I had finished off my retro wishlist last year, but apparently a few slipped through the cracks that I just got patched up:

  • Skygunner (PS2)
  • Second Sight (GCN)
  • Psi-Ops (PS2)
  • GUN (PS2)
  • Quackshot (GEN)

Almost got Conker's Bad Fur Day since that's gone down so much in price, but I guess I'll just hold out for a while longer, I'm in no rush.

Only now finding that God Hand is a game I should've bought years ago when it was getting poor critical reviews. That game is so hammy! How can you say no to game where you can turbo-spank filthy girls?
It was a tough call, but I ended up ordering a Japanese copy since those are like half the price (odd that while that version got a "Best" print, the original seems to be more abundant. Bad reviews maybe why it didn't get a western Greatest Hits?)

@KingMike I know that's why I passed it up for a while, which...turned out to be a mistake. People compain about biased reviews nowadays, but the landscape used to be hell until about a decade ago. So many "edgy" reviews, so many "me-too" reviewers, so many people demanding a game be a certain way or have certain features, all while missing the forest for the trees...and all of them were written like high school english papers, and no, I don't think many of them would've gotten more than a B-.

The magazine ones were even worse since they had so little space to work with, so you'd get a score paired with largely useless summaries for any game that weren't already major, hyped-up releases.

God Hand got snubbed by amateurs, is all I'm saying.

Here's a video of my latest pick ups. Mostly retro but some 360 stuff.

Check out my Youtube Channel! Gameplay, pick-ups, etc!

I just picked up a mint condition Intellivision for £40. I don’t think the guy selling it had any idea what it was.

Unfortunately, mega man powered up for me was NOT an enjoyable expedience. Hands down my least favorite classic MM game of the mega critter litter. Far worse than even 5 & 6. 😣

Hated that overly cutesy large headed Chibbi styled character designs, most of the music was annoying and inferior to the original NES MM's music, the backdrops looked like they were designed by minimalistic talentless soccer mom's from ikea, the controls felt a little off and the entire experience overall just fell flat for me with all of that combined suckage. It was so boring that even the word boring was snoring.

That voice acting drove me nuts after a while too. And guess what? I was on the second stage of wily's castle and I accidently squeezed the PSPs screen too hard with my thumb and the entire screen broke....colorful lines and splotches are shooting All over the screen like it's been hit by the fruity pebbles virus. Done. Gonday. Fatality. Like i care bears anyways, the PSP'S library is about as appealing as my grandma's 10 day old carrot sandwich.

The MM formula is just tired for me at this point. Capcom already went overkill by releasing 4, 5, and 6 on the NES... Maybe I would of felt differently had I played it during its release...Nahhh 😥

2, 9 & 11 and maybe 7 are my favs.

1, 3, MM&B and 8 are in the middle.

5, 6, and 10 are in dead last.

Powered up has already been forgotten and thrown into a grease fire.

@Wavey84 This is the first time I ever remember agreeing with you, but yeah, Mega Man Powered Up was pretty bad, and certainly a wasted opportunity of a remake. MM1 already had the worst controls of any Mega Man game, and not the tightest level design, but they doubled down on it with the new stages instead of fixing it, and the artstyle was hideous - I swear that Mighty No.9 was trying to go for that same art style, too. Now we know one of the many bad ideas that I guess Capcom was holding him back from implimenting in his Mega Man games...

Realized I think I had just one game missing from my Famicom RPG collection, some game I heard described as a Phantasy Star clone called STED. Not expecting a great game being seemingly the only non-SNK-related console game this published.
Also making one of the rare exception of avoiding adding filler sports games to the collection but ordered a SFC 2020 Super Baseball. Surely a preview of next year's season.

I bought Mario Party 5 at a gaming expo last year. It's the only GameCube Mario Party I never owned myself.

It's been a while pixel toads n' bit-brats! 😎
Here we goooo....

Super Mario Sunshine - (GCN) finally!
Super Mario Bros./Duck hunt - (NES)
Dead space - (XBOX 360)
Super Mario Galaxy 2 - (Wii)

By the bayside, that's the varient label 2 'action set' of SMB./Duck hunt, the one I used to have back in the late 80' as a kid.

I have the other one which the majority of people have but it just isn't as pretty, magical or eye catching like the action set bundle version imo. FACT.

Haven't played Sunshine since it's release back in the early whirly' 2000's on that little quirky purple lunch box of bodacious wonders. Unfortunately, during the brief time I had with it, it never managed to reel me in. Color me close minded after coming from SM64 I guess.

I wasn't feeling it at the time but my tastes have expanded since then and I'm looking forward to finally sitting down and playing it from start to finish, it's something different compared to the Mario norm which I admire and it's one of the few 3D Marios I have yet to complete.....3D world and Odessy being the other two.

Also Galaxy 2 > Galaxy 😉 I owned it years ago but ended up selling it including 95% of my collection which I'm finally now rebuilding. Sigh. Galaxy 2 captures more of that classic Mario magic and ditches the irritating cumbersome hub world of the first galaxy, throws in Yoshi and some fun new power ups. I also prefer it's soundtrack. Both are great games but I'd give the nod to 2 no question.

Meanwhile i've only played the Dead space demo, which was like a decade ago...loved the space alien body dismemberment, plus I'm a huge fan of survival horror. Evil within on the PS4 is next on the list

Devil may cry - PS2

The OG that started it all. It's going to be a fresh experience for me whenever I get around to play it. I've played 10 minutes of it maybe at a friend of a fiends place back in the early 2000's and was mighty impressed.

Now I just need a PS2 and a 32" Sony wega CRT to play it on. 😛😅

A few loose Genesis games.
Bubba 'n Stix which the AVGN reviewed among his Amiga games as "the one that doesn't suck", and another Amiga port called Bubble & Squeak, hopefully the Sunsoft name makes it a decent-ish game.
Also Midnight Resistance (what happens when you take a rotary stick platformer and put it on the Genesis, how well does it come out) and Thunder Fox (tried it in MAME and looked pretty amazing, I'm sure it's not going to come out as well on Genesis, but we'll see).

@ogo79 Thing is, I don't know the games besides Thunder Fox can exist when Taito is "The Only Game in Town". HOW DOES ANYONE ELSE MAKE GAMES?
Or was Taito simply alerting us that only one person in each town may find/buy/own a Taito game?

I decided to go on a buying spree for my launch GameCube and Wii after deciding the minute gaming goes all subscription services only, I’m out. This weeks purchases are:

Crazy Taxi
Billy Hatcher
House of the Dead Overkill
Ghost Squad
Sonic Colours

With the exception to House of the Dead and Ghost Squad, the other three games I’ve never played before and have had a blast in playing.

@Ninfan, I decided to risk it and get them of E Bay. So far all genuine games in their boxes with manuals and more importantly in working order. Failing that there are retro gaming resellers such as Chillout Games and Retrogames. Even sites like MusicMagpie and Cex still have a large selection of GameCube and Wii games.
