Drinking game, every time Kerr shows you a duplicate game, take a drink.

Edit- That's DK Land 1. My brother had that. It was strawberry floating impossible to play. The screen was so dark and many of the levels were in a darker palette.

I got that in Florida on a family holiday. Managed to get the full % (something like 101%) on the same trip (long car journeys). This was on an original gameboy with no daft light attachment.

If you drank for every duplicate you'd probably pass our, I'm bad at remembering what I own. Lol

I'd love a video or an image which showed every physical game Kerr owns.

I think you buy more in a year that I own in total. :lol:

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

Your eyesight must be amazing. Honestly, I couldn't make out what was happening in that game :lol:

And here is my third video, I wondered what it looked like when you set one to premier at a set time so its premiering in 30 minutes , simple things please simple minds lol ... There are a lot more Advanced games in this one. Also in one of the videos I incorrectly say a copy of Pokemon Silver is fake, it didn't look quiet right to me it turns out its a later USA edition, I checked the board and did some further research.

Half of the games I had were terrible too.

Metroid II
Super Mario Land 2
Wario Land
Wario Land 2
Tip Off
Super James Pond
Ren & Stimpy: Veediots
V Rally
Hyper Lode Runner (I had no idea how to play this, still don't)

I never had loads of games back in the day Tetris, Metroid II, Super Mario Land 2 and Wario Land were some of the games I originally had as well. I had Megaman 2 also. I started getting a lot of it a lot later mostly after I got a GBA SP (had a gba but didnt use it too much cause of the dark) I found the box and manual to my original Metroid 2 the other day as well which was awesome. In fact I found boxes for Pokemon Gold , pokemon Emeald, Pokemon ruby, a batterd box for pokemon blue, Fire pro wrestling, metroid fusuion and some other bits. Its only after having done all the videos I realised my fave GBA game is not even in the Video and thats Fire Emblem because its sat in its box in a box protector.

Got a bit excited when I saw Final Fantasy Anthology BRAND NEW for under 50 quid with voucher on eBay, but Music Magpie have listed it horribly.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/384189728532

US copy or UK? Box art says US, blurb says PAL. I tried messaging but they’ve turned it off.

A quick search of the EAN number suggests its the US version.

I would assume its not new. I have seen magpie list stuff as new when its just in good condition and yeah the region thing is confusing as theres lots of conflicting info, I have never actually seen Magpie sell USA games here ....... its what id call a gamble.

Had a feeling it was probably too good to be true. One of those new PS1 titles that still goes for silly money (along with the likes of Resident Evil and Silent Hill).

To be honest I blame UK retailers for artificially pushing the price up of new PlayStation 1 games today. Because all the high street shops pretty much sold them from a drawer behind the cash register there weren’t very many sealed copies in the marketplace to begin with. The ones currently on eBay probably came from mail order companies like Gameplay and Special Reserve.

Would love to know who is putting in copyright claims on old UK videogame magazines at Archive.org. The majority of old PSM2, Official PlayStation, PlayStation Max, EDGE and Play have all gone, which would indicate Future Publishing. Either they're about to finally do something with that old content after 20+ years or that's just rather petulant. Same if it's a disgruntled writer.

If its a disgruntled writer I really really don't get it, for me I want anything I have done or made to be seen.... I once found a horror website had quoted me when it came to a zombie film (I had reviewed it and theyd taken quotes from my review with my name attached) I was happy thinking more people would get to hear what I had said
