Last retail games I remember buying were Swos 96/97 and later than that Xtreme Racing and the Update Disks for it (big box releases and still have the XR ones), I think they all came from EB in Eldon Square Newcastle.

4-5 year ago I bought Payback sealed from Amigakit when they (and Amibay) were at Play Manchester expo, still haven't opened/played it lol

It looks like my last two Amiga new boxed purchases were Alien Breed 92 Special Edition and Devpac 3.0. Ashamed to say most of my games were pirates - been trying to make up for that since I starting working!

Aww, it's an excellent game, great CD soundtrack too! Well worth a go (but download the latest updates for it too).

End of November I bought a Mint copy of Microprose - Formula One Grand Prix - bought it to put on the shelf as I can't actually test it due to not having a floppy drive

Bought it out of nostalgia and the fact that this was THE game that made me buy an Amiga all those years ago.

Yeah, was awesome game that - for some reason all the retail copies I found in NZ were always damaged, usually the box squashed from having heavier items put on it at some stage. So never bought it....

I hate sleeve boxes, I refuse to have them in my collection. So easily damaged. If you want a proper boxed F1GP, get the power plus version

Each to their own Gordon , i love the original F1GP box and especially the manual, i'd always rather have the original release instead of a budget re-release.

Jack Nicholas Greatest 18 Holes of Major Championship Golf.

I loved the Atari ST version of this, so, I wanted to try the Amiga version too!

And just in case it was crap, I bought PGA Golf too. The platinum re-release, with the extra course disk.

Not sure which was the last one:

Alien breed 3D II
Minskie's furballs
Worm's the directors cut.

I'm thinking it was worms.

The Entire shelf of CD32 games, at electronics butique. When Commodore went bust, they were dumping all games cheap. As I was in my first job, had money. I thought, why not. Didn't think it through well, as I looked rather silly, with backpack and 2 carrier bags full of bigbox games. I wasn't going home straight away, lol.
