    Atari Jaguar

    I want but not for 120 dollars, even knowing the amount of work that's gone into making them.

    I don't really get the point of these ST conversions beyond it being some sort of money grab appealing to the rabid jaguar collectors. I'd love somebody to take the time and make / convert something that would really push the system, like a decent 2D fighter, something the Jag sorely lacks. It's got the guts to throw / scale sprites around when pushed, look at super burnout, it's beautiful!

    Nabbed a boxed breakout 2000 off cex online. Using credit from some tradebait I picked up and cash it cost me roughly £30
  6. I think it depends on what your looking for sometimes. I don't just go looking for games myself as I am usually looking for other electronics to sell on or fix up as a hobby or for myself. This last year has been particularly good for retro gaming for me at the boots but I'm using Facebook marketplace more and more. Ive found an Amiga 1200 (£70) with an accelerator, an Amiga CD32 (£80), an Amstrad GX4000 (£5), an Atari 520ST (£20), a PS2 with a network / HDD adaptor (£10), Xbox 360 E with 250GB HDD (£10), Gizmondo (£4), Zelda DSi (£5), DSI XL, Nokia NGage (£3) and a GameCube (£8). Ive games for all of them but I mostly get them from eBay or from cex by trading in stuff for credit to buy online. Plus I've bought other systems and repaired / sold them on as I've not a fan or dont have the space (spectrum +3 £2, Amstrad cpc 6128 with monitor £10, a ton of ps3's and 360's) I've been going booting since I was 7/8 years old dragged round by my parents and I'm 35 now, getting up at the crack of dawn almost every weekend to hit a couple before breakfast so it's pretty engrained in me. Love the random finds, the best being a boxed nintendo virtual boy for a fiver. Still hunting for a Neo Geo or PC Engine!
  7. Picked up a fair bit today, lots of Xbox one and PS4 titles, couple of 360s with pads for 20, also found a nice dsi XL for 4 quid but the top screen is smashed, may try and fix it up as a project. Also found a PS4 scuff pad? Was missing a trigger but it's a simple fix, only a quid. Worth a crazy amount or seems tho.

    Cart only, I can't justify the price for a cardboard box. I've never been bothered about having cases for portable games weirdly. I've barely any for my original game gear or Gameboy games. Now, boxed jaguar games are another matter that isn't open for discussion though.

    Lynx 1, I fancied something comically large. Although knowing what CEX online is like, it will be a mega drive that turns up. If it's no good I'll take it back. I did want a lynx 2 but the price is all over the place on eBay and there's none on CEX.

    I got one...CEX finally got an unboxed unit in and I had some spare credit to burn off
  12. Rescued an Atari 520ST FM on facebook yesterday for £20 The seller told me if he didn't sell this week he was going to turn it into a clock...same thing he does with the xbox's and Playstation's he had

    How much you shell out for that McWill model, dare I ask?

    Grabbed an official nintendo RGB scart cable for my cube / SNES. Hdmi route is a bit pricey for me, plus the pal games won't output at 480p

    My local cex had a few carts in, California games, roadblasters, awesome golf, paperboy and hard drivin, £30 the lot. I now own 6 carts (bill and Ted was £1 at a local carboot) and a model 2 sunvisor but no console...yet It will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine
