Already bought it like 20 years ago, where've you been? :P


That said, I bought the re-make/-release on Steam ~two weeks ago. Was disappointed that they didn't add in the original ending "credits" where it congratulated you for finishing the game, then told you to go do something productive, like... and then gave you a huge list of bizarre or mundane activities as suggestions which just kept on looping so you could read them forever. :lol:

Probably just had my best ever performance in single player on Battlefront II. 50 kills, no deaths :D

I just remembered, Mos Eisley Hero Assault was the single most epic gamemode on any game ever :D

I just won a battle on Felucia without losing a life, got 71 kills in 2:40 :D

Admittedly I was playing as Aayla Secura

Dear Super Metroid,

Please stop being at least £20. Start being a fiver like all the well behaved snes games.

Cheers.

It's even easier if you play as a standard trooper and earn the Elite Rifle, that thing is devastating :D

Not at the York one at any rate. They have about half a dozen N64 and PS1 games that I allways think about getting and one drop of xbox/ps2, but not snes/megadrive era stuff.

weird, when I worked in the one here we had an entire section for NES/SNES and another one for Sega Megadrive.

We had SO MUCH Sega Megadrive. It was all like a quid each as well.
