I just got bad news in the mail. My contract on my apartment will not be renewed and I have to be out by the end of August. Goodbye trip to UK. I also have to say goodbye to a big portion of my videogames as I have to sell them to raise some money.
As a reply to your feedback on the forum. It's a no-brainer. I'm coming to the UK sometime late July. It's still too early to plan anything specific. The only thing I need to book in advance is lodging but I figure that won't be too difficult to find. It would be great if a few of us here on retro collect could get together and have some good time and a beer ... or two... three... maybe nine...
As part of my Health Challenge I took a walk from Stockholm City out to the suburb where I live. A walk that took me more than two hours. My feet are killing me... And then see all these posts about FOTO FRIDAY. Doh! This means I have to take my feet - exercise some more walking - and try to find something worthy to photograph... oh... j...o... y...!

It's been a long time since I had a good day like this.
I feel you Loch. Digitally downloaded games just has no second hand value. I discovered this auction on Tradera a while back: "Wii console with 40 games" The BIN was £150 and I thought WOW! But then I looked at the description: 30 or so of the games were for Virtual Console and my heart sank as in my definition there was only 10 "real" games and the deal no longer felt so good.
I'm seriously thinking about taking a trip to London this summer. I was there a few years back and I really loved it. Anyone here lives there who would perhaps like to meet up - have a beer- and go shopping videogames?
Sorry but I fail the MPM this week. Haven't had time to even test my game for the week:
Disney Chanel All Star Party
I will put it on my to-do-list and hopefully I will have a review up by the end of this week. I also failed to play Super Ghouls 'n' Ghosts which I promised bits I would do. I go sit in the corner for a while.
• Enclave: Shadows of Twilight ( £16 ) • Fit & Fun ( £9 ) • Eledees ( £5 )
Unless you live in Germany I would say Enclave is a rare game. Could probably get it cheaper the shipping cost at this BIN was way below normal rates from Germany. I've never seen Fit & Fun in Sweden so this was a -get-it-out-of-the-way-buy from UK. Being lazy costs.
• Monster Hunter Tri (£4) • Sega Bass Fishing (£3) • X-Men Origins: Wolverine (£3)
Discovered a new region code for Monster Hunter Tri: FHUG. Strange one. The manual was UKV but the game box has both PEGI and USK ratings. I don't know what to make of it apart from assuming code is short for France Holland Uk Germany...
