Yeah, I'm very reticent to buy a game without seeing pictures of the actual item itself, Salads. In my days of buying from eBay a few years back, I preferred those adverts which had several photos of the game and case... far less chance of being disappointed when it arrives!

Funnily enough my worst experience was with a game purchased online from GAME. A couple of years ago I ordered a new copy of Black Ops II on the Wii U and it arrived with a dreadful quality case and a scratched disc. I returned it to my local store on the basis that it was clearly a second-hand version but they refused to admit this, saying that it was new. I got a refund in the end but it was quite a tussle! On eBay I once ordered a CIB copy of 1080 on the N64 and it arrived without the cart or manual; just the box. I contacted the seller and he said he'd lost the cart and manual before sending it to me :? :lol: . I got a refund through eBay... but still haven't got a copy of 1080 for my collection yet!

That Turtles one. :wub:

I'm probably gonna go with the Marvel Super Heros, or the existing Street Fighter II one at some point though.

I’d love to own one of these. It’s the Mega Drive/Mega CD combo you never hear about.

So I keep track of my collection on Retro Collect and I thought I'd go through everything today and make sure I've got the correct games noted down - I've somehow managed to mark Off Road Challenge, Top Gear Overdrive, World Cup '98 and Virtual Pool '64 as owned, when I don't actually have them in my collection.

That's a bit frustrating - for World Cup '98 I actually thought it and FIFA '98 were the same game, so that's probably where I've gone wrong, but the other three I have no excuse for :lol:

As another interesting note, of the 115-ish games I'm missing, 22 of them are sports simulators. Ranging from All-Star Baseball to Michael Owen's World League Soccer 2000, to Acclaim's sports series' and a few EA Sports sims. The N64 was truly undervalued by developers.

Wow. eBay?

Which ones?

Prices?

Link to your Retro collect page?

I'm in Vancouver at the moment so I'm gonna try and check out a few retro gaming shops.

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

Just got 14 loose PSP games for £9

2 copies of Ben 10 protector of the earth, Lego Indiana Jones, GTA vice city stories , GTA liberty city stories, Miami vice, ghost rider, mercury , crash of the titans, pro evo 5, FIFA 09, star wars clone wars republic heroes, star ward battle front 2 and Colin McRae rally 2005 plus.

I also grabbed Animal crossing for the Wii for £2 .

Its years since I've seen a multimega, something cool I'd love to see again is one of those TV,s with a super Famicom built into it, a guy who owned a local games shop near me used to have one set up for customers to play on, it was awesome.

Yeah eBay. So I picked up the following:

All-Star Baseball '99
All-Star Tennis '99 - CIB
Bomberman Hero
World Cup '98
NBA Jam 2000
NBA Courtside Featuring Kobe Bryant
Iggy's Wreckin' Balls
PGA Tour European Golf (this is marked as "very rare" on RC and I got it for £4 :lol: )

And I'm currently the high bidder on Automobili Lamborghini and Mickey's Speedway USA, which has been on my list for quite a while - would just leave Conker and Banjo Tooie from the Rare collection to pick up.

Downloaded Genzoidplus onto my phone. Touch controls don't work great for a lot of games, but others are fine. Currently playing Flashback

While we're talking about N64 sports games, I actually own Waialae Country Club Golf. My Dad had a good game on my previous console (the Mega Drive) which he quite liked, so picked it up. I think it had 64 Magazine's all-time low score at one point, with a whopping 8%.

I wonder if my Dad liked it. He didn't play that much but by then I was older and hogging the console myself. It looked basically like an MD game so he should have been right at home.

I picked up Waialae Country Club Golf at Grainger Games in Newcastle for £2 earlier on in the year while on a stag do( :slol: ). Smashed it on when I got back to Glasgow and it was...utter shite. :lol:

@Cora

Nice work. A mate had Mickey's Speedway back in the day, it was alright, decent fun without rivalling DKR or MK64.

I might try and get Mickey's Speedway when I get back to my N64. How, ahem, rare is it? I imagine it's not the cheapest as it wasn't too popular and came out towards the end of the console's life.

It was a bit of a damp squib in terms of reviews but I always thought it looked a decent enough kart racer, and I enjoyed DKR.

N64 put it in the 80s didn't they? Consensus was that it was a good kart game, on a console that already had two exceptional kart games in DKR and MK64.

When I eventually finish off the N64 collection in many years' time, I'd like about 40-50 CIB games(Currently have a shade under 20 but some of the boxes are quite wrecked or arrived not as advertised) - really the ones I played and coveted as a kid - and DKR/MK64 are two of them.

I'm probably an outlier when it comes to N64 games in that I don't really care about them being in boxes or not. But then I'm buying them to play rather than collect/display.

Me too - I'd like a full set but I play every game I buy for the console. I've picked up some unbelievable shiters in the past few years. :lol:

If you care about boxes you'll have a real problem collecting for the console. But there's something to be said for having a nice row of boxes sitting on a shelf, and I'd quite like a few nice ones.

I have some boxed N64 games, I have a sealed Pokemon snap , a good condition smash bros and then a bunch of OK boxed things but I have about 100 loose carts, for me though I never really set out to get a N64 collection , I fell on a lot of them while looking for SNES games and such, I find once you start getting a bit of stuff for any system it starts comepling you to grab more , heck reading what people get for N64 here makes me stop and think hey you've not grabbed much N64 stuff recently you should get something.

Got any decent doublers or anything that you'd be willing to part with?
