Fire Emblem Sacred Stones and Shining Force are both sealed :datass:

You can get quite a bit more for Fire Embling now if it's sealed as new.

Not so much for Shinning Force, but again if it's new at least £30 I reckon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shining-Force-R ... 081&sr=1-1

Reckon I'll be holding onto these for a while yet mate :wub:

Those with Vitas or PSP should download Metal Slug 2 and King of Fighters'96 that came out today.

Resurrection of the Dark Dragon. It's a remake of the original Shining Force, I think.

Had a sneaking suspicion you might. :)


Anyhoo, I've been really enjoying Sly 2 on PSN. It's a bit easy, but it's nice to just sit back and chill with it. Looks lovely in HD as well. :wub:

Was it US only? I don't remember it. I've got Shining Soul but I think that was a new game.

Yeah, it's Shining Force 1 with a few fripperies.

I'm sure it got a PAL release.

I had it on Xbox, it's pretty good but I never tried the co-op so can't comment on that. Good game though.

Bought these yesterday, near enough perfect as cheapo USB pads on eBay go, £4 each!

Now, I need your help to decide what game I play, have just about every retro game imaginable. Thinking maybe a good SNES RPG or a fun MAME game or two. I really can't decide, spoilt by choice.

Nah mate it's not very good any worth less than Fifa 03. I'll give you a fiver for it though.

So in other words it's excellent, still worth at least its original RRP and I should get on and play it then?

Tell I'm a massive Nintendo fan, can't you. :lol:
