Default Your recent acquisitions, or what retro have you bought lately?

What retro purchases have you made lately?

I'll start this up with Panzer Dragoon for the Sega Saturn. Absolutely loved this back in the day, haven't cranked it up yet but looking forward to it.

my last purchase was a 5.25" disk box (lockable type) , which i really really need, and was stoked to find.

BUT it inadvertantly got delivered to my old address, and the new tenants have ignored my pleas to fwd any packages to me (probably because they'eve opened it)

hence I guess i'll never see it

Plastic dealy, transparent top, lock at the front, plastic dividers?

I found a few SSI D&D games over the weekend. Pool of Radiance was missing the code wheel though .

If you can track down a program called 'neverlock loader', it should solve your problem

I made pretty extensive use of it back in the DOS days

Got a few of them, not sure about keys or the right number of dividers but I'll have a look tomorrow.

General Chaos for Sega MD II - Bought on here actually

Super Mario Kart for SNES - Mate gave me his SNES for xmas pressie!!

Most nights Im surfing ebay on my phone looking for Megadrive or SNES games that I always wanted but could never afford...

Currently shopping for a 5.25" Working FDD - Have a WTB post in these forums ...

And at some stage I might look at trying to build myself a 386 / 486 ...

Just bought myself a Playstation 1.

I have all the old Nintendo stuff, but sort of missed out on the Playstation apart from at friends' houses. Time to see what all the fuss is about :P

Also just received a nice boxed copy of Zelda: SNES.

But where are the pics?
I love these kind of threads and looking at pics of what everyone gets.
I'll post some up of what I have gotten when I get home.
