This guys really good. Does a fair few conventions and shows with his stall too. Very helpful too if you're looking for anything in particular!

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2/3

Boktai 1/2 (I can dream)
Dokapon: Monster Hunter

Klonoa 2: Dream Champ Tournament
Samurai Jack: The Amulet of Time

I realise this isn't the easiest list

Hm, my partner has both THPS2 and 3 GBA boxed and complete with all manuals/inserts. We have loads of the console titles making them sort of dead wood, but they were a bit of a technical marvel. How much were you looking to spend?

I have THPS2 if you're interested.

Can't help with the rest I'm afraid, I think the most obscure GBA game I have is The Pinball of the Dead.

Honestly no idea what the going rates are, I only got the micro this morning (from Dan) and that's what prompted me to check back over what GBA games I want but don't have. It's been forever since I've bought a boxed GBA game.

I'm definitely interested if anyone is happy and willing to part ways with any anyway!

Is THPS2 on the GBA quite a rare/niche title? I picked it up as it was pretty highly rated at the time, and was released just after launch, so was one of those games that benefitted from attention during a post-launch lull and before Mario Kart and Advance Wars landed.

It's pretty easy to come by for £5. Worth keeping hold of just as a reminder of how amazing it was at the time.

Yeah I was expecting pro skater to be the easy game to find

Missed it from my list, but I picked up Zone of the Enders: Fist of Mars at the weekend. It's, uh, not great... but I'm still glad to own it and be playing it

I picked up Boktai not long ago for £18, which I thought was reasonable.

Can't find 2 anywhere for anything close to a similar amount.

Sneak peek at Hyperkin N64 clone

Really interested in this, have the N64 hooked up to the old TV in the kids playroom but having the ability to play on a modern TV would be fantastic. Pair it with one of the updated controllers released and Ill be in N64 heaven! Hopefully it runs well and its compatible with all the good stuff.

God damn.

*Adds to "To buy" list.

But yeah, depending on compatibility and performance I might very well be "in" on this one.

I grabbed 4 loose Famicom carts for £8 family stadium 87, gundam z hot scramble, child's quest, and moreo pro yakyuu baseball and then I spent £10 on two convertors for playing Famicom games on a NES, hoping to use them on my Retron NES HD consoles, there the first ever original Famicom games I have ever owned so I'm pretty excited about it all.

I also grabbed a complete copy of Driven for the GameCube for £1.50

Awesome! Looks like your on a bit of a role here!

I've been meaning to pick up some more games but I get distracted by so much else!

Plus i'm rapidly running out of room...

I kinda feel that after Analogue's FPGA offerings this is going to feel a bit gooseberry fool.

Hyperkin were also working on a Gameboy Colour clone that looked very interesting but haven't heard anything about it for a while.

Well the convertors didn't work on the retron so need to sort out my real new to see if they work with those but even if they do its not really what I wanted. Still you can't win them all I guess.

I'm lucky if my local charity shops have a few copies of Fifa, Singstar and Just Dance games.
