    That's a good one, lots of cool demos and unreleased titles as well as the core of standards. Instant library.

    It would be good to have originals for them too, but are there any not on that cart that I should look out for in particular, including any "new" stuff like Vector Pilot?

    I like multi's however, the games are a bit nicer played with the screen overlays. I used my original multi to discover games I wanted to get the originals and overlays for. Sometimes you will see auctions for just the overlays. Keep your eyes peeled for those.

    Vector Pilot and Vectrexians I would recommend picking up if you can as well as the homebrew Defender clone Protector if you can find it, which can be tough and pricey. Failing that, get the flash card and stick a copy on there, its really an incredible piece of coding.

    I got the Vectrex today after a meeting on a pub car park where I was to look for the "tall hairy dude in leather"

    I found him and I now have a working Vectrex.

    The system is fine but the controller is not cosmetically great. It works 100% so far though so no biggy.

    Now to find some overlays......
