perhaps I'm too late getting up?

If you are missing a few hard to find items try ebay or be prepared to wait a long time to stumble on to them.

I actually DID a boot fair last week to get rid of a lot of my doubles/trebles etc....

Managed to sell 5 N64's, 2 SNES and 2 Megadrive along with a lot of games... including most of my Gamecube games for £10-£15 each) plus all the usual junk on the side (books, toys etc..)

and I took £400 !!!


Thats left me with a more modest collection....

1x N64 (and about 20 boxed games + 7 unboxed games)
1x Dreamcast
1x SNES + 25 games (7 boxed)
1x Megadrive

Didnt like your gamecube?

Seems like everyone in the UK has a N64, never liked it much here.

Gamecube was ok, but I never looked at it again after getting my modded xbox

I also couldnt get on with Zelda which was strange as I completed it on the GBA. Got bored with the GC version.

The N64 is probably the only console where I like playing the real thing over the emulators.. They just never seemed to get the emulators right in my opinion.

How crappy are the games? I don't think anything made before the Atari 2600 could keep me occupied for long.

Not bad actually, sort of on a par with the atari 2600 early stuff. Hmm well actually maybe a bit crappier. The maths one has kept me well entertained cos I realised I can't do multiplication LOL!

Done a lot of web-research today and it's an interton vc 4000 clone-ish. this site has all the games for the interton listed, and the ones I got are all exactly the same as they are shown there.

the 2600 had crappy graphics but some of the games were addictive in a simplistic repetative way.

My first trip of the summer and I picked up a Game & Watch Zelda.

Last summer I managed to pick up a SNES with 2 pads + 3 games, a Jap Megadrive and a sega Arcade Stick. Plus a couple of Saturn and Megadrive games.

I'm hoping for more this summer

Woho! I actually won a bidding. One "kept in the basement" NES with Zelda and Nemo in VERY mint condition. First Zelda box to be sold. A little bit expensive, but it was worth it.
