Not truly retro, but picked up "Midway Arcade Treasures 1" for the PS2 today from a charity shop. £1.50

Also a Dreamcast keyboard for £1.50

Nothing worth having from the house clearance place for a while now. There was a PS1 there today.

Bullfrogs classic - Magic Carpet for 1.50. It's the original big box edition & includes the 3d glasses. Should be good for a laugh...maybe ;D

Stiggy, if you can mate that would be great !!  :)

The first game I ever owned on my first PC, fantastic at the time, even though my 1meg video card could only run it at 320 x 240 !

Some more C64 originals turned up today and a slowdown cart for the C64. 

I reckon Phu could knock these carts out in his sleep :)

Any recommendations on C64 games that are too fast?
