I love the Tatooine DLC for the first Force Unleashed game. Its completely OTT and probably my favourite part of the first game (bar the first level, which is also awesome).
Yup! All the DLC is unashamedly OTT :) essentially letting you battle and kill all the main characters from the movies. The Jedi Temple is my fave though, introducing a few puzzles and finally letting us get to see an interpretation of the Jedi trials.

Anyway, another day another sale. I downloaded Double Dragon Neon & Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon for little over $6.00 today. Uhm-ing and Ahh-ing over COD 2 for $10.00. It's more than I'd normally pay but I haven't played a WW2 shooter in forever.

Persona Ultimax, haven't tried the new characters out yet, enjoying working through Story Mode when I have time. It's getting me hyped for P5

Just some pick ups from Play Blackpool...
I never knew a Tomb Raider double pack with 3 and 4 even existed so I thought I'd pick it up.

Finally got around to picking up the official artbooks for the first two Valkyria Chronicles games:

They are both absolutely massive (400 and 300 pages respectively) and really exhaustive. They have all the character designs, rough concepts, unseen ideas, weapons, tanks, storyboards, cutscenes and lots of input from the games' designers. I love these games so I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time going through these books :)
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Finally restarted my Game and Watch collection:

Donkey Kong Jr Panorama. I'm short less than half the G&W handhelds now, but they are all the expensive ones so its going to take a long time to get them all!

^Nice, some fantastic games in there.

I picked up the Keyrings from Lidl on Friday and also picked up a couple of posters last weekend, BlazBlue and MvC3.

Freecycle - that is ridiculous, a great score! Reminds me to dig out my copy of Zombies again for a blast. :D

I picked up another Vectrex yesterday that I spotted on Gumtree as my one is being repaired.

Sadly my kids have been hogging it since I got in.

A bit more expensive than my last one at £120 but it came with 6 games that were boxed complete with the overlays.
