I don't think I've ever got another one. A decent indie shop (not CEX) will usually sniff them out for you, but you still have to check. It might be worth chucking a list up here because some GB games don't hold up to well or are just.. too synonymous of that time.


Hello Green Gecko is it possible for you to PM me about tech support? If not I can create an account for Twitter or YouTube but this seems the best place since I have an account here already. I'm not allowed to PM you first though due to settings.


Account upgraded. You can PM now.

Another one off the list. :toot:

Always been a bit curious about assault ever since it was previewed in ngc etc. It was made by Namco I believe and wasn't a bad game? It had ground sections. Seeing as starfox 64 is a bit rough around the edges these days (and starwing is almost unplayable).

Others have recommended Starfox 3ds so for the same money I'd have picked that up if I didn't already have the n64 cart. Need to get back into it!

Yeah, it was developed by Namco. Assault got some mixed reviews; NGC weren't overly impressed with any of the Fox games that were released on the GameCube. The only reason it tends to go for a fair whack is because it's one of those games that was released near the end of the console's lifespan and consequently PAL versions are reasonably uncommon. I've only got 5 games left on my to buy list so perhaps by the end of 2019 I'll be done.

Assault is an early birthday present (because, after all, you can't control when a good deal comes along) so later in the year. I've only added 2 games since the last picture I posted.

I just like collection pics to be quite honest.

There's a copy of MP6 in my local CEX at the moment - it probably isn't quite in good enough nick for you, as CEX games never bloody are. Think there are about ten Cube games I'm still looking for, but it'll be at least another twelve months before I can start looking at collecting properly again, and even when I do the N64 stuff will take precedence.

Played a few games on the Mega SG - Castlevania, Rocket Knight, Streets of Rage 2 and Sonic on Master System. Did a mixture of PAL & NTSC. Compatibility is flawless and the picture is outstanding on my 4K TV. Something about the music doesn't sounds *quite* right to me, but that might because I've probably never played it in proper Stereo before. There are tonnes of options to play around with, but honestly as it comes out of the box is pretty superb.

The free game - Ultracore - is really good. I'm genuinely surprised it wasn't officially released. It's more than good enough.
