    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) :rolleyes:

    hence I guess i'll never see it :(

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Try replacementdocs.com. They had all the manuals and extras for the entire series. I loved those games on my C64.

    Now I know why I don't buy G&W off ebay and rely on finding them in the wild :)

    Lucky for me I have 4 of those units that are up there for auction, boxed too. I'll watch these to see what they go for out of interest.
