What with all the recent talk of people not owning their games, but rather just licensing them, it reminded me of an endless pursuit of picking up some games I got rid of in the past or stuff like AES games which were out of my reach.
So, in my pursuit of tracking down a few of my gems, I've wondered around Birmingham to some "random" retro game shops and stalls. I've mostly come away disappointed. I've had a look at ebay but I thought this would be a good place to see if we can help each other out by linking auctions and sales or offering to part with items from our own collections.
OMG this game. I remember buying this just as my mates were getting Playstations. This game lasted me months and I'm pretty sure I could pick the game up and race through it as I had memorised all counter hits and patterns.
I loved these and I my dad had bought me 1 and 2 brand new from the store. Can't believe I got rid of them. I managed to play 3 by borrowing a mate's copy and also fully completed it. Loved the platforming, loved the secrets and music, would love to have them back on my shelf.
Saw one for sale in a retro shop for £30...without the Killer Cuts CD and a squashed box. *sigh*

This game was fucking amazing back in the day. It was one of the first games I had seen with the "MEGA SHOCK" attract screen. Huge massive sprites, booming sound effects...and a pirate that THREW SHARKS!!!
I was thinking of starting a Capcom and SNK Sega Saturn collection but I have no idea about that machine. Seems to be loads of different versions with RAM carts etc, but I am not too eager about that.
So...post up your Retro wants and let's see if we can help plug them holes in our shelves.
