Bummer. It’s all good though, When I saw that the DC one had Crazy Taxi featured (as well as space channel 5 and sonic) I thought it would be the best soundtrack ever.

Then it didn’t have Crazy Taxi music at all, it had off brand Muzak. I’ll get some better pics of both record for the thread when I get rid of the current computer pile.
Hank Azaria not playing Apu on the Simpsons will make the role as irrelevant as the Simpsons has been as a series since 1999!

They were Australian Pre order bonuses for the Megadrive and Dreamcast collections on PS3/360. I'm pretty sure Skynet has them too.
I still have the records despite getting rid of the collections ages ago. Literally the best pre order bonus ANY game has ever had, and it's why I don't pre order much anymore. You want me to pre order your game? GIVE ME A MOTHERFUCKING RECORD, BITCH!
If that had been available here I might have pre-ordered the game just for the records! I haven't looked on Ebay but I'm going to guess the records are going for more than the game originally cost.

I don't mind building up some pretty large collections all the time, but once I've had my fill, the collection is sold and I move onto the next system. At the moment my PS1 and Saturn collections are getting up there and once I play them I'll probably move onto an original xbox or current gen or get myself a new video card with the proceeds much like I did with the SMS, SNES, 64, DC, PS2, PS3, 360, etc.
The only system I ever had a large amount of games for was the Dreamcast. I think I had a little over 50 games for it back in the early 2000s. I ended up with so many because I was in love with Dreamcast and the games were dirt cheap at that time. I remember getting some games brand new for less than $5. Nowadays if I really wanted to play games on an original console I'd just get an SD cartridge since they are available for pretty much every system. Personally I would have no desire to own the original cartridge if I can just play it on an SD cartridge. Especially with the prices of retro games being so high nowadays.

I've only purchased 1 record in the past few years, and I tend to pay a lot for records because I want them, not because they're cheap. if someone wanted to swap my shitty Elvis records, for Daft Punk or CCR ones I don't have, I'd go for that.
But going through thrift shops, there's never anything good and on the odd occasion there is, it's priced accordingly. I don't wan't 70 copies of Barbara Streisand for $1 each. I'd rather spend that $70 on something good :olol:
I know what you mean. I don't only buy them because they are cheap. The ones I buy I have some interest in. I wouldn't buy a bunch of old gospel records even if they were only 25 cents a piece because I have no interest in them whatsoever.

Have to ask Zoidberg that one. I'm pretty sure he has more games than every other BG member combined, including all the barbie games!
@Dr. Zoidberg Why you pay $20 for Barbie NES? :olol:

I am doubtful of that. There is no way the gameplay is as good as the Commodore 64 version with 56K modem Ken.
