I think I recently saw alien soldier in the indie for £300. So it's good to see that in there.

Super Thunder Blade however is strawberry floating awful. I traded it back in for £2.

Just picked up a GB micro. Looking to buy a replacement faceplate. Seems to be a lot on eBay with presumably variable quality. Anyone able to recommend any specific ones?

Also looking to pick up Metroid Fusion/Zero Missiom for cheap and also Mario Golf if anyone is looking to offload?

They both go for good prices (ie expensive) but I've seen a few cart only salves for OK.. my recommendation would be to bid on a few carts say up to £8 and see how you fare. It won't be hard to offload them if you end up with 2.

As for me, I aint selling ;)

Always wanted a Micro.

I’m not fussed about a box. Would prefer cart only to be honest.

Also noticed some folk selling “refurbished” carts. What does that mean?

Refurbished can mean 2nd hand but cleaned up, contacts cleaned etc..... Sometimes you have to be careful though as it could mean new not official labels put on it, or heck could be fake and them trying to excuse away any descrepancys with oh well it's a refurb that but was replaced, changed etc

There are a LOT of fake carts on ebay (and reproduction boxes). In some cases the majority of them are.

Some sellers show a photo of the circuit board which is a good shout but still not an absolute guarantee.

Box wise, the Nintendo seal should be gold, they are lustre and very rarely gloss for GBA and never dull. And the cart labels have a code impressed into them.

Consider what is worth faking (Pokémon, triple a titles etc ) and what isn't.

I would be careful with zero mission as it was a late release, fusion maybe ok. Only buy from the UK and maybe avoid business sellers... Unless you want s guarantee. They sometimes don't even check if their stock is genuine but randoms may well have had it off the shelf just like me..

Hopefully PayPal will sort you out if you get a fake.

Awesome thanks for showing me that jawafour, I kind of expected it to be rubbish being sold for £1.50 but it looks quiet good, and as the guy says his fave pool game is side pocket and I am a big fan of that myself things sound good.

Inspired by our retro chat on Rocket League discord I've been playing some SNES Indiana Jones on my mini SNES. Really enjoying it, I'd installed it a while back but only played 5 minutes or so. Love playing through scenes in the films, I'm only halfway through Raiders atm and am a bit stuck on a level. There's some bastard hard difficulty spikes in it as well, I guess that's old games for you. Would recommend it if you love the films

Good luck with this one kerr. Had it back in the day as a kid and could never get past the early stages. Not difficulty so much as difficult to control.

Yeah for a game programmed by capcom the controls are not the best but it's kind of charming.

I really like Indy on the SNES it's well worth pushing past any spikes Hyperion

Sorry to say this, Kerr, but you've invested in a big dull dud here. I had this and even at 5 years old I could tell it was awful.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

They are one of the most stereotypical mid-2000s things I can think of:
