My wife bought Space Chanel 5 part 2 from PSN, but It was from my account because I had money left on there.
She played the first one to death on the Dreamcast... I'm a bit rubbish at both.

So that counts right ;)

^I'm jealous you have a wife who loves Space Channel 5!

Last thing I bought was some Mensa puzzle game on Live, it was half price and is poncy as f*ck.

Probably Joe Danger on PS3. Since then I've stopped buying games from PSN and XBL because almost all the ones I bought have ended up getting a retail disc release! For example, I splashed out £17 on MS points, spent them all in one go on Limbo, Trials and Splosion Man, and about a week later they released all three together on one disc for about a tenner.

I'm aching to play Journey but having seen that it got a retail release in the US and holding out for an EU release.

Another one I'm unsure about is Sonic 4 Episodes 1 & 2 - does anyone know if they will be released on disc?

Spelunky is an absolute stunner. In all the games I've played of it, every single time I've got killed I've had to admit that it was entirely my own fault.

I have to admit to buying both of the currently available Capcom Arcade Cabinet collections.

Terraria (before the release thanks to a code as I'm reviewing it). Before that was a big batch of Rock Band DLC in the sale.

I took a chance on Spelunky whilst it was in the sale. It's 100% retro in charm and relentless difficulty! It's thoroughly addictive but I'm at the point of giving up trying to defeat the Olmec head. Still, I've had hours of fun and maybe, just maybe I won't be able to let the game defeat me.

Around the same time I also bought Arkham Asylum for £2.49. Hadn't played it before. Great game and at that price a no brainer.

Last two purchases from PSN (on the same day) were Bentley's Hackpack and Voltron, mainly becasue they were less than £2 each. I also picked up the first episode of The Walking Dead last week but that was free... ;)

Been tempted with a few, but I think the last game I bought on PSN was Red Dead Redemption w/ Undead Nightmare.

I've decided I'm going to have a clear out of games soon, so decided to play through the many titles I have which I haven't played through yet. Currently on Assassin's Creed 2, but after that Wipeout HD, and then I might get round to Red Dead. It was a bit of a bargain (about £15 I think), and I've barely scratched the surface as far as I can see.

LOL
One of my wife's prised posetions is her compleat (boxed) collection of 8 and 16 bit sonic games (she lost interest with 3D), along with all the hardware to play them on... And yes she has her own retro consoles, as well as me having all mine... we have a fair bit of retro. She still had some of her origonal Atari VCS stuff when I first met her :mrgreen:

I know what you mean. I've played the Journey demo through a few times now and look at the 'buy now' screen, so far I havent for the same reasons.


The Walking Dead is now on sale on PSN for £11.99. I played the demo, and it was quite interesting but really short. Is it worth this for the 5 epesodes?

I also downloaded the Dust 514 (EVE OnLine spin off) Beta for free recently, and would reccomend it. And I don't usually like FPS MMO games!
