I'd be interested in seeing the list, Cora :-) . Yeah, all the Nintendo-published titles had black-border boxes although the last few titles were produced in a borderless style.

He's incorrigible. I mentioned it to him yesterday and nada, nothing.

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

I did some quick intel and after eliminating a couple of outliers I came to the same conclusion as the good doctor.

Weirdly still remember magazine stuff on alone in the dark for GBC, similarly to the Resident Evil Gaiden game which was canned (although I think a ROM has leaked), it has pre-rendered graphics and so was a bit of an 8-bit marvel.

I'm amazed at the stuff you pick up, kerr. Whenever I've looked in my local charity shops, they have a few copies of FIFA on PS2, a couple of kids' DS games and Call of Duty on the 360. That's about it.

The famicom games are not coming from charity shops, I wish they were it's a mix of eBay and a semi local retro game place.

Terao no Dosukoi Oozumou (sumo wrestling game by Jaleco) for famicom cart only for £3

Jonny Moseley Mad Trix for GBA cart only for 20pence

Virtua Tennis 3 complete for PSP for 50pence

John Madden Football 92 cart and box for £1

Big mutha Truckers 2 for PS2 complete for 50p

I have randomly received a purple GameCube joypad in the post, I haven't paid for it, I think it's from a seller I have got famicom stuff from I'm waiting for a cart off them wondering if it's been sent to me and my cart to someone else.

Resident Evil Gaiden was released, you mean the GBC port of the original Resident Evil.

Picked up a decent nick copy of Mario Party recently, and also - not sure if it's retro - Green Day: Rock Band for a fiver on eBay. I've got all of the RB games that were made available in the UK now, apart from a physical copy of RB4.

I have found charity shops in the weirdest places in the past even while on 1 day breaks and once while hospitalised with my epilepsy got a retro game from a charity stall in the hospital , my family mercilessly rib me for it. I had a few bits just arrive in the post retro wise just now but I think I might even have to stop this and chill it out as I live with someone in the vunerable group.

I got famicom Tetris cart only £3.50
Fist of the North Star part 2 cart only for famicom £3
Xenophobe for NES American cart in little xrental case £5

I just want to say I love all you guys on here particularly all my fellow retro heads and I hope we all get through this with no lost loved ones or harm

A famicom cart of Galaga I'd orderd from abroad monkeys ago for £3 including shipping turned up today, I'd pretty much forgotten all about it with everything happening.
