Another Atari Lynx II, as the first one I bought died after 3 plays on Chequered Flag ! Common fault apparantly where power switch dies ... Hopefully next one will last a bit longer ! Got Electrocop, Zalor Mercanary, Roadblasters and Chips Challenge to get me started . Loving my GBA at the mo, just added Namco Museum and Streefighter 2 to my collection, and finally got a Competition Pro joystick with 20 yrs of sweat yuk ! and a cheetah interface for the speccy.

Neo Geo Pocket Colour from ebay - fingers crossed it'll arrive safely in the next day or two!

It comes with Sonic Pocket so will need some more games

Currently thinking:

Neo Turf Masters
Metal Slug
SNK vs Capcom

to get started!

Any other recommendations?

I only discovered it fairly recently...other than the original Gameboy i've never had any handhelds so thought i'd go for something different

Cheers for the links  :)

The Neo Geo Pocket has arrived!

All works fine and had a quick go of Sonic (i'm at work!)

Will need to sort some of the games now  :)

I will Andy :)

Oh and an upgraded Original Xbox (from 1200xl who has more stuff for sale including a chipped Saturn  ::))

Just need to get used to XBMC again & get lots of roms onto the Xbox HDD for the emulators

Bagged me C16 yesterday. Weird really, one of those machines I've always used without actually owning one.

Also got a few more Vectrex games (mainly for the colour overlays)

Scramble
Fortress of Narzgod

Acquired a PSP 1000 today...the cap has snapped off the thumbstick.

Still useable in its current state but think I'll replace it. Anyone done it before?
