None , nothing , zilch after imposing a buying ban for myself for the whole of march, I'm playing what I've never played before instead .......and it's been quite enjoyable although the no chocolate ban for the heart foundation for march im doing probably wasn't a good idea to do at the same time as gaming and chocky bars go together arrr :D

I bought Shantae: Riskys Revenge on steam as it was only 2 dollars. I've heard a lot of praise from various gaming boards so I thought it'd be worth a try.

rocksmith 2014 in the steam ubisoft sale. that was a decent bargain. but it comes without the cable, got the cable off ebay, cost me about twice as much as the game lol. never mind ,want to learn guitar and its probably the cheapest, most effective way unless somehow getting free lessons off a tutor.

Deadly Premonition - £3 for the PC from Game. Read some reviews and watched some saying, could be a bit rubbish and weird. But, it looks intriguing, so will give it a go also not the same trip, I picked up 'Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition in Game's 2 for 10 offer, pleased with that as I have been wanting to play it for a while and runs decent on my average PC.

Driveclub on the PS4 - Not played it yet, as I went to have a go yesterday and it wanted to download a 6.4GB Update......so played Minecraft whilst it was downloading. Hopefully I will be able to have a go on it tonight.

For the 360 I picked up Spec Ops the line for £3. Meant to be a ok game with some nice ideas, but too many flaws to be excellent.

Will play it next once I have finished vanquish.

I quiet enjoyed Spec Ops The Line, pretty decent 3rd Person shooter with some sort of story, does what it says on the tin :mrgreen: . Had some nice environmental damage in areas.

That's good enough for me. Look forward to giving it a go.
