Picked up two original PS1 consoles this week.
Always wanted one, had to pick them up.
Luckily both are working fine as of now.

That DVD is a great find, some interesting titles and a few where you're getting a good run for story. Don't bin that image for a bit, I want to see how many I can find online.

Gotta say, Catherine and Ultimate MvC3 for those prices are really good pick-ups!
Thank you yes, I read that message from you and today I told EBGames Guy and he said Catherine was a great great find!

Before that today I went to JB Hi-Fi and got new copy of Trackmania Turbo!!!
I already have it digital from our Son's XBOX Gold download from 3 years ago but on one of the console I couldn't access the game through my account so I thought I would get it as I really love this game, plus I can lend it to one of me two close XBOX Live friends!

Shin Megami Tensei Devil Survivor Overclocked, digitally for the 3DS.

Kirby Touch. The Japanese release of Kirby Canvas Curse/Power Paintbrush. Got it for under half what the English versions go for, shouldn't be too hard to play and I prefer the box art.

Welp, after owning and being an active 360 owner since around 2008, I finally brought a Kinect for my console.

After a time getting it set up and try and get the settings to work, I think I got a good set up in my tiny game room. It certainly didn't like being under the TV but when I put it above the TV, it worked a lot better.

So far only tried that 10 Pin Bowling game on XBLA that worked well. Sonic Free Riders is just as broken as everyone says.

Got a large backlog of cheap Kinect games I picked up over the years so gotta dig those out and try em out. Must say, got a bit of a workout from those 2 alone. :lol:

My kick of gaming from the last 2 gens continues as today I had one of my ""F it" moments and brought a Move Controller at CeX for my PS3 as I wanna play those HOTD games more legit.

Ordered the camera online. Intend to get the Navigation controller and that handgun shell next month.

Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold on 3DS.

Nearly bought this digitally in the recent sale. Didn't bother in the end but then saw it physically (just the cart) on eBay, so made a modest bid and surprisingly won it for not much more than the eshop sale price.

I liked republic Commando, but last time I played it had aged terribly. Still one of the better Star Wars games, but it has some serious niggles every now and then.

Cadence Of Hyrule for the Switch (physical).

Found it new online for £17, gave the demo a proper go, and thought don't mind if I do.
