Kind of regretting that decision now though since I can't play it on my everdrive.

How much does it go for these days?


Edit: About 10 quid on the bay, not as much as I was expecting really.

I never knew a Virtua Racing remake existed for the PS2...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Virtua-Rac...-/200436806738

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sega-AGES-...-/110799059999







Has anyone on here played it? Any good?

I'm not sure if the sliding of the car is exagerrated compared to original but I don't really like it, and I can't seem to find a video with an inside view.

Be a shame if they left that out.

Seems pricey too, might be a bit rare.

Think mine came in about €8 posted, it's pretty cheap. I like the fact that its the only MD game that uses the SVP chip...I think it is anyway

I'm sure you can get the PS2 Sega Classics Collection fairly cheaply, and as I remember the arcade version, it's pretty accurate to it. It's a nice blast for a few minutes or so, as all good arcade games should be, it's not a sim after all.

Tant-R and Columns are pretty good too, if you like those sort of games. As I remember, the others are so-so.

VR on the classics collection isn't bad, it certainly has the looks down to a tee.
The Saturn version is tops for content but loses out in the fact that it plays nothing like the original.
The MD and 32x versions, in the interests of compromise, are the best, both playing really well and the MD version a true triumph, compare the PAL version of Virtua Racing to the PAL Snes Stunt Race FX, the former is fast, fluid and playable, the latter, whilst fun, is sometimes rendered ridiculous because of a shoddy shoddy framerate.

The PS2 collection is well worth finding although, and this is a serious warning, even you deluded Golden Axe fans will find it hard to love the faecal stain that is the remake of Golden Axe on the disk,

Gunstar Heroes - Anyone who doesn't like this game is either ill, or has serious issues to deal with. It's that good.





Edit - How the hell do people let carts get so dirty? The same amount of gunk came outta this one is the same as Rush N attack in the pic previously. I got the stickers off this cart but have to wash the plastic now to remove sticker gunk. Do people store carts in flower beds these days? Main sticker is damaged but I seen that in the auction & didn't mind given its cheap price. I can live with that

And, for all that hyperbole, you only just bought a copy of Gunstar?
I mean, we all gave Retr0 stick for... well, lots of things, including not owning a Nes, but not having Gunstar?
It's your second or third copy, right? I mean it's really just a spare, 'cos of all the Gunstar gaming you do, right??


Oh, and Dragon Blaze, on the PS2, by Psikyo, is frakking hard man!
The screen just fills up with projectiles, there is less screen room devoted to the spaces between bullets!
Why oh why do you hate me so much Psikyo?
I must play some more Harmful Park and make myself feel more manly again...

I never disliked it though, like those with no taste who dislike say the utterly brilliant Streets Of Rage. I just hadn't got around to collecting it, though I did own it in my youth. I blame the coke & hookers

Do you know if that has a proper tate mode with screen and controls? Any videos I see of the PS2 version look to be played hori with nasty wallpaper borders either side.

Damn you the deepest circle of hell, that is a bog in Offaly.

I got Maximum Carnage in post this day. In lovely condition! Going give it a fife up later this evening when I get home from a fun day of Sociology.
