It is, I already have Black and a few others but they are all copies so its nice to get the originals. The memory card is very welcome as without it can be fiddly to transfer game saves from 1 xbox to another especially a modded to an unmodded.

For the bargain hunter I use an app called 'localebaydealsfinder' which searches only listings that are pick up only, it also ended at an odd time (fri afternoon) so was only me and 1 other bidder.

Just picked myself up another (non working) Jag as a spare. Had a bunch that someone had plugged the wrong power adapter into it. Opened it up, and there was a telltale hole in U38 and a bulging cap. Thankfully the sound was okay, so didn't need to replace Reg1. While I had it open, I decided to add a 50/60hz switch.

Here are the games or game-related items I either got at Supercon or by mail this past week...

Oh great pick ups. I'm a huge fan of the mass effect soundtrack. Particularly for the third game

Those CD's were on sale at the convention.  I only paid $4 for each one.  :)

Cool, I have incoming.  Added the review recently.  What region is that one from?  Looks different to mine.

I assume PAL. If dreamcast goes by that....

Yes reliving my childhood, used to play this on the PC.

I seem to remember playing Incoming briefly. Is it like a modern take on Missile Command, with you're controlling a gun turret?

The gun turret is one of the "vehicles" you control. You also have a chopper, a plane, and a tank.

It's quite satisfying when you shoot down a big ufo. Also I like when the game shouts incoming before the next wave.
