Alowing for the fact I've only played the PC version, but deffo looks like Quake 3 Arena.

Talking of Q3A, fans of that should check out Open Arena, it's basically the Q3A GPLd source married with a set of GPL levels / graphics / models.

Cheers.

Phill.

Mine's with the Phu on his 'to fix' pile.

Dug out the GBA SP today as needed to catalogue what games were in the box and also put the RGCD special edition games (Thrust, Reaction and Motocross Challenge) into the same box for neatness sake.  Had to (naturally!) test out all the games.  Might dig out the soundtrack ripping tools for some GBA rips at some point :)

Yep! Very pleased  ;D

No games though so will have to sort that but I'm not going to complain at that price.

There was an Atari 2600 Jr A in parents loft up until about 18 months ago and they chucked it without telling me so glad I was able to get this!

if the boxed breakouts are really really cheap, I may be interested for making home brew carts.

Just bought a PC Engine Core Grafx II for around £30, needs a PSU and video cable. First games Ive sourced are Bomberman 94 and Streetfighter 2 both a fiver each delivered which aint bad. I just need a PSX joypad converter so I can play Streetfighter properly, think it will be cheaper to do that than buy a PC Engine 6 button joypad.
You fail it! Your skill is not enough, see you next time, bye-bye!

following on from the Atari 2600 bargain today I collected a ZX Spectrum 48k with cables and a tape deck for zero pounds and zero pence :-)

shortly followed by a PlayStation 1 with cables, a controller and a couple of memory cards for three quid

rather pleased with my luck at the moment!

it does balance out though as I let my competitive nature get the better of me on fleabay far too often  :'(
