Armed Formation F - PC Engine.
Don't know much about this shooter but it was a steal for the price, it's an arcade port and the manual/cover art is lovely. Looking forward to playing this when I've got my PC Engine set up again.
Castlevania Lords Of Shadow Collection - PS3. Zavvi exclusive steelbook version of this collection which contains
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, two additional DLC chapters, the complete Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate HD adventure, and an exclusive Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 demo.
P-47 - PC Engine.
Another PC Engine shmup for the collection, and one I got at a decent price too. A bit simple in comparison to a lot of later horizontal shooters but still fun to play. This port compares favourably to the Arcade version as it's far more accessible. Gorgeous cover art too.
Gunstar Heroes - Japanese Saturn.
Again another title I couldn't pass up at the price, loved the sequel and the HD port on XBL but I never picked up the PAL original because it's so damn expensive.
Ghouls and Ghosts - Japanese Megadrive
Another title that I've been playing for years depite never actually owning a copy of the original (Via Capcom Compilations and borrowing the game). This hard as nails arcade adventure is a firm favourite of mine and after finally securing a copy it's the gorgeously designed Japanese packaging that's gracing my shelf!
Instant Brain Limited Edition - Japanese 360
A Japanese interactive novel I've been after for years, there's one reason why any shooter fan needs to pick this up It contains an unlockable version of Arcade Dodonpachi as a bonus for completing the game.
Forgotten Worlds - Japanese MD
Not a huge fan of this port the arcade version plays much better but it's still fun to play. The artwork is really lovely on this game and it'll fit snugly next to my copy of Strider and a recent purchase when it arrives.......
Street Fighter III 3RD Strike - Japanese Dreamcast
Great game which more or less completes my DC 1 on 1 fighting game collection, the DC port is great and does a perfect version of that hideous soundtrack!!
