Oh, I still have my launch copy of that for my long deceased 360.
It was the first Need for Speed title I enjoyed after Hot Pursuit 2 on the PS2.
As I've said before, the Underground titles left me quite cold.
Sadly, they back pedalled with Carbon afterwards.

I don't always think Criterions take over of the series was a good thing, now everything feels like a Burnout game, Burnout Paradise to be precise.

Funnily enough, I picked this up last week.



Still haven't gotten around to playing it yet.

DS gaming's become the 'go-to' since just about everything, save for a couple of 1st party big-hitters, are going for pennies. That sweet, blissful timeframe between a console being last-gen and becoming the retro-collector's domain.

I'm hoping to pick up about 20 titles for 360 in this exact time frame.

eg Bioshock Infinite is still about €15 new. I want it and will get it but not for €15.

Come on now people go to the new consoles already and let me get some cheapass 360 games!

I usually 'don't do clones' but this thing looks to be of really high quality and the whole save state thing with original carts is really interesting.

Not sure I'd use that term to describe it to be fair, not from looking at that youtube review posted here a while back anyway. Naff controller and no flash cart support were two things I remember, also needing Arnie-like muscles to remove carts was another. Has some plus points though and obviously there's a market for it.
