May have a little time to kill here later this aft.

Retro in particular would be outstanding.

Anyone know of any?

There is a fantastic retro shop not far from where I live. it's in Streatham, which is about 15-20 minutes by train from Victoria and may be a bit out of your way. Also their opening times seem a bit erratic, so i'd contact them if you want to go, although time's a bit tight now.

Other than that I can't think of any, there was one by Tottenham Court Road, but it closed a couple of years ago.

Women are so lovely.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Do you mean the one next to the Scientology place or the one further down? Both are still there, so yes either way.

It's cocktail time!. Then again when isn't it.

That's the one I was trying to think of - they had loads of review copies of games, import stuff. The guy there sold me Motorstorm Apocalypse even though it had been held back over the whole Japanese earthquake thing. Proper LAD.

They got rid of the retro stuff though. It's a shame as the bottom floor was glorious...

I work in Streatham sometimes so I'll definitely check out Retro Game Base.
