Took advantage of GAME's 3-for-2, and ended up with Rayman Origins, Dynasty Warrior 7 & Sniper Elite III.

I bought an Arduino Uno. Does that count?

So I was browsing the local buy/sell ads on Facebook when I saw someone advertising this:

Day One Xbox One with Kinect & controller - FIFTY QUID! The disc drive makes a grinding noise but this should be an easy fix, even if it isn't it'll work fine for me playing digital downloads.

Can't believe the bargain I got on that. Quite happy.

Nice find there mate, can you use your Live login from the 360 on the Xbox One as well? Massive Chalice was on Games with Gold recently, and it's an excellent strategy game.

My JXD arrived yesterday, I will now spend the next few weeks figuring out how it works and loading all my games onto it.

Also got Batman: Arkham Origins on the Wii U as Rakuten gave me a fiver to spend on their site for no reason. Which was nice.

I set it all up this morning and it works beautifully! I've logged in with both my Live accounts and as I write this I'm downloading Child of Light, Pool Nation & Ori and the Blind Forest.

If I try to insert a disc the drive has no 'pull' and it makes some pretty unpleasant grinding noises, I'm thinking the drive is misaligned. Simple fix but I don't want to fork out 40 - 50 quid for a replacement part so I think I'll just use it as a download machine atm.

^^ Nice pick-ups! :D

I got a cheap CD Key for The Master Chief Collection. It started downloading today so if my internet speeds hold steady I should have all 65 GB downloaded by...January :lol:

I also got some credit for my Live account - can't decide whether to get Forza Horizon 2 or wait to see if next week's discount deal will be better.

Project Cars. It was that or The Witcher 3, and I figured I just don't have time to play the latter.

The choice of menu music is certainly different. I like it. The game itself looks huge, but I can easily break it down into manageable chunks.

Project Cars seems to have fallen under the radar, any good?

Got these at the car boot today. Don't know if the prices were worth it but House of the Dead has alluded me for some time on the Wii. I don't know whether to keep them or revive the RN+ thread with them.
