Right now i'm playing Scarface. That game is genius! Dealing coke and smuggling in to Miami from the islands, laundering money, building my empire, taking out turf and hacking people with my chainsaw to and f*ckin amazing soundtrack.

God, I have been so close for picking this up on Xbox... For some reason I had a hard time ever beating this game and, unfortunately, never did get to beat it. Still and a great f*cking game, whenever I play Saints Row it reminds me of Scarface the game.

A question for the England members on here. Am looking at picking some good old GC games up, but nowhere seems to have them in stock anymore. I checked Amazon, and people are just taking the piss out of people with the prices of games on there, like 50 for MGS:Twin Snakes. I would try Ebay but I have a negative view of that site, with alot of cons going on. There's a local shop round here called Chips, but with small shops like that, yes they sell old games/consoles, but they rely on the public to actually trade/sell them to this shop, which is quite rare. I must say though, I've found some quality retro consoles and games in there, ncluding Ataris and stuff like that.

Is there anywhere else that I can get decent-priced games from?

Aladdin inlove.gif Loved that game. Rented (or should I say my mother rented it for me) for my Megadrive!

PS2 and Xbox are considered retro? I still remember getting my PS1, sh*t I still remember playing my N64 for the first time. I feel really old now. Thanks OP.

Nooo! I decided to finally hook up my Sega and it doesn't have sound! Looks like I need a new RF cable. Or maybe an AV cable if it works with my Sega. This sucks, I was really hoping to get in a couple of hours of Sonic Spinball sad.gif

Bought a second copy of MGS3 for no reason a couple days ago.

Also hoping to stumble across a disc based version of MGS for the PSX. Even though I bought off PSN I'd would sill like a disc for my Metal Gear marathon in the future.

Every once in a while, I'll hook up my ColecoVision or my Atari 7800 and play those classic 80s games.

Retro? I still have my old Xbox, bought it for 80 about 5 years ago with a small TV and 16 games, about 2 years before I upgraded to the 360, I kept the old Xbox for 2 reasons, (1) I LOVE playing Rally Sport Challenge 2. (2) I asked how much this shop would give me for it and they said they would pay 10 if it was in good condition (which it is, but it's worth more to me)

I've still got my original Xbox aswell due to me having some games on it that can't be played on my 360.

Did you know Michael Jackson composed most of the original Sonic music?

I've always been a die-hard Sonic fan, tempted to start out from 1 to 3 because it never gets boring. icon14.gif

Hell, yes sonic is STILL good, although after sonic adventures 2 for the Dreamcast, they were absent for quite sometime until episode 4 came out in 2010, unless you count the mega collection (which I just found in my basement recently biggrin.gif ) but yeah, Sega NEVER released a sonic game spanning from 2001-2010, NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Talking about sonic, I'm really excited about this:

I remember when I used to play Sonic 2 against my mom, it was so damn fun. I think this remake will blow me away.

Hooked up my GC a few days back, and got halfway through OOT. Turned it back on a few days ago and it told me that memory card needed formatting as it was corrupt. angry.gif Tried switching to my other memory card as I felt safer playing on a different memory card, and it tells me that this memory card is broken and can't be used...was well pissed off. Anyone else ever get serious problems with GC memory cards?

Sorry, I can't help.

Had a hankering for some Dead Or Alive 2 today. Might give it a whack. Fond memories playing this in my old flat getting stoned and trying to beat my mate.. "Unbeatable Bob."

We always laughed at the cutscenes.

Forgive the double post and bump.

CeX just opened up near me for the first time. Got some great games there yesterday. I bought Vice City for 4 and San Andreas which was a little steep at 10. Looking for The Warrors next and I might just pick up an old Xbox too biggrin.gif

Please for give the double post/bump. I didn't want to start a whole topic just for one game although it's a mighty game.

So, I finally found The Warriors for the PS2 today. Man, it's so much fun. I really wish they made more games like this. I mean, I've been brawling, smashing peoples faces off walls, stabbing them with glass bottles, sniffing Flash, robbing car stereos and businesses, mugging people and beating up cops. What more could you want? All to a cool soundtrack in a dark and seedy New York.

Some times the game reminds of Streets of Rage. I think it is a more modern version when you think about it.

I just got the original Fallout trilogy (1, 2 and Tactics) and I'm playing through the original and it is AWESOME. Loving it so far.

I was wondering, is Silent Hill 2 a good game? I've heard that game is pretty intense so i'm thinking of getting it.
