I'll check on Ebay.  Maybe more will pop up.  :)
Well, I'm sure I read somewhere that they were being re-made under license but in limited numbers. They are sure to pop up again.
Wow, that was quick, well done!
They have.  Snatched one!
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks

I had gotten three of these games without a box and manual but I received the boxes and manuals today so here they are.  Sea Battle is a homebrew game based on Battleship and that one came from Russia. 





And, of course, then there is this...

Just got a load of old PC games at a car boot sale today for £15. When I got home it appeared that there were a few extra games inside one of the boxes as well.

Great titles. Still enjoy playing Lords of the Realm II. So seeing Lords of Magic was nice.

Just got Mine Storm for the Vectrex, and... a Vectrex!

Wanted one of these for quite a while, a local seller had one. Isn't in the best shape, didn't get the best deal, but I'm still pretty happy.

That is awesome!  The Vectrex is one cool system!  You will have fun.  Try to get a multicart so you can play all the games that were commercially released (and even some homebrews) that way.

That is a very good idea. The stick on the controller keeps dropping down, and I have to pull it hard to turn left. Seems like an easy fix though, as I can probably stick something under the joystick section to keep it up. Still playable as it is, so I might not bother fixing it. Looks like it was previously repaired as the controller is held together by tape.

Those controllers are not cheap to replace, though they can be fixed.
