:4: It was cheap, so worth a punt.  Besides, I'm just a sucker for those big boxes

I've just received Power Factor for the Lynx, another Jag pad (that's going to get the rotary controller mod for Tempest), and Bubsy for the Jag.

Pulled out the Jag last night and had a bash on Vid Grid, Blue Lightening and Dino Dudes.  On the down side, looks like my AvP cart is hosed   :(

Dang, that sucks.  Cleaning the contacts didn't help?
Not so far, but they going to get cleaned again tonight on the off chance!

I'm with 64bitRuss on that.  It's a real niche community, and newcomers aren't welcome.  You're expected to post tons of trash, rather than worthwhile content.  Back on subject, there are a few decent multi-carts for the MVS, although they do include a bunch of hacks and multiple versions of the same title, but it's a cheap way to establish your collection and decide which titles are worth owning the original of.  The arcade stick is a thing of beauty - I use that across all three of my NG's, although I do have a fondness for the CD pad.  I did start collecting AES titles, but to be honest, they're not good value when you compare it to the cost of MVS carts.  As its been pointed out, both carts contain the same code, and a Universe BIOS will allow you to switch between home and arcade modes.  My 4-slot is an easy conversion (the BIOS is socketed), but my soldering skills are not quite up to the task on the AES!!

Thank you all for the warm welcome - what a top community you have here.

@DreamcastRIP - yeah, although I only have burnin' rubber for it. Looked at picking a few more up, but they're a bit expensive for my liking. Especially when I see what I can get for my other systems for the same money.

I was really curious about this one, never having owned an Amstrad (unless we're talking late model Speccy's).  Picked one up off Ebay, plugged it in and absolutely hated it.  As has been said before, the controller is really atrocious and the whole experience didn't do anything for me.  It got packed straight back into the box, and put into the loft.

Hi all,

I've been lurking in the shadows for a while, and thought it was about time I introduced myself.  My name is Andy and I'm from Cardiff.  I have been a video game fan for many years, but got the urge to start collecting about seven years ago.  At first, I was curious about some of the systems I had never owned as a kid, mainly of the Japanese variety, such as the PC Engine and the Neo Geo, but I found myself drawn to the Master System and it kind of exploded from there.  My current list of systems includes:

Turbo Grafx
PC Engine Duo RX
Neo Geo AES
Neo Geo CD
Neo Geo MVS (4 slot)
Neo Geo Pocket Colour
Hyper Neo 64
Wonderswan Colour
Sega Master System 1&2
Sega Megadrive 1&2
Sega Mega CD 2
Sega Game Gear
Sega Saturn (PAL, but modded)
Sega Dreamcast
NES
SNES
N64
Gamecube
Gameboy Colour
Gameboy Pocket
Gameboy Advance
Gameboy Advance SP
DS
3DS
Wii
Atari 2600 Jr
Atari Jaguar
Atari Lynx
Vectrex
AmigA CD32
PS 1
PS 2
PS 3
PSP
PS Vita
Xbox
Xbox 360
3DO FZ-1 & FZ-10
Amstrad GX4000
Spectrum +
Spectrum +2
Spectrum +3

I'm feeling the Jaguar love at the moment (a friend of mine bought one at launch and I remembered the wow factor of Cybemorph.  Had it for a few years now, but its been a bit neglected until recently), so I'm adding to that collection and looking out for a Jag CD.  Other than that, I'm trying to finish off my MS collection, but I'm fast running out of room and my missus is fast running out of patience!!

Anyway, enough rambling from me - awesome site with awesome content.  I need to pull my finger out and get posting.

Cheers,

Andy
