Let me know what it's like. The 360 is my brother's now, but I may nick it off him to play that. 2D stealth games are pretty rare.

I recently went for a short break on the Isle of Wight, there are a few cool game shops over there which i visited, i bought a brand new dreamcast and i also picked up 4 games for my collection, these were; Test Drive 2: The Duel, Skeleton Crew, Record of Lodoss War & Looney Toons space race.

Image
Brand new DC, sexy! Note the colour difference on the second controller connection, one of the controllers from my old console. The Whole console was yellowed to fuck.

Image

Test Drive 2: The Duel (Genesis) - I picked this up on a whim, i dident go out my way to find this game, but saw it sitting there on the shelf and it jumped out at me because i used to rent it when i was a kid so nostalgia made me buy it, was very risky at a fiver lol i was actually pleasently surprised, it was better than i remember it being! i love the fact its one of the very first "driving sims" rather than arcade racer, as you get an in car view with steering wheel and gauges, and rather than circuits its open road (like the first NFS) with a rival car, traffic, roadside cops and the need to stop for Gas! superb cheap buy.

Skeleton Crew (Megadrive) - another impulse buy just out of curiosity, more risky at a tenner, but i saw the "Core" logo and knew it couldent be bad. Turns out this is an awesome game, Isometric shooter with co-op mode or single player. Pumping soundtrack and lots of action, how had i not played or heard of this before? it has made me want to go out and buy "The Chaos Engine" on Megadrive, otherwise known as "Soldiers of Fortune" to your Americans, made by Bitmap Brothers so has got to be good (and it does look and sound excellent from video's ive seen)

Record of Lodoss War - This was on my "wants" , think i paid about £15 but was well worth it, was just as good as i remember it being 10 years ago, an awesome action rpg, am loving it again!

Looney Toons space race - Only ever played this as a Demo back in the day of ODM & loved it, always wanted the full version. Finally picked it up for a tenner , bargain IMO ive seen it go for more on Ebay, top game aswell, not disapointed at all with this one either.

Good haul this time round, very pleased. Its nice to actually go out and buy games in a shop for a change rather than ebay, and nice to buy retro games in a shop. Ashame GAME ruined GameStation by taking away their retro, i really miss browsing retro stuff. Love the Independants, but they are hard to find.

record of lodoss war is one of those obscure but awesomely addicting rare dreamcast games that makes you love the dreamcast, just as all the other games that make you love DC do. Enjoy that one my friend, its gold.

I tried to pre order a Wii U just as a placeholder just in case I can. Every site is sold out of the deluxe. Hoping this is not another Wii Situation. i don;t want to wait 2-3 years to get one.

Neverland made a few games that play exactly like that IE shining Force EXA and NEO.

So Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom got here, and just as described it's in it's original cellophane, very easy to tell it is, and only for 10 bucks. Most sellers have it for $20-$25 new and even used, I know a good deal when I see one.

Pinkest damn box I've ever bought.
Nice little release though. Haven't played the games yet, but the included art/series history book is pretty sweet. Just reading a little bit into it has me kind of excited to play it already.
