Picked up a couple of Wii U games from a charity shop for £1.50 each

I did intend on keeping them but found out that NFS had a high trade in value. For the pair I got £30 so picked up these. Watching EVO got me in the mood fro some Guilty Gear. After all, SFV just keeps on disappointing me :(

Hmm...haven't seen that Nobunaga's Ambition before! I take it that it isn't a new release judgung by the price tag? Is it an RTS or some other sort of strategy game by any chance?

All the Curve digital games are on sale on the Nintendo E Shop on the Wii U, so I picked up the ones I don't already own multiple times on other formats- Nova-111, Ultratron and Pumped BMX Plus. £0.80 each.

Ultratron is great. Wish the same devs would port Titan Attacks to Xbox One.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Thanks to an article from Kotaku (of all places) I've just purchased Project Diva: Future Tone on PS4! This is a port of the arcade version, with approximately 224 songs and a metric tonne of modules and other unlockables.

All in it was about 8200 Yen, or 75 quid, and required creating a JPY PSN account and some rough google translation. Absolutely 100% worth it, can't wait to start binging on all of these awesome tracks. Just need the proper controller now...

I've just got started on the Warriors series with Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate on PS4. Really good game even though it is as shallow as a puddle! Awesome special moves though and the plethora of guest characters were right up my street :)

Both pristine for Saturn :

JPN version of Sonic Jam and a PAL copy of Baku Baku in the rigid case.

Is that shudder it's scary or shudder it's bad, because if it's the latter, them's fighting words! I really enjoyed that game, despite some dodgy AI. Probably one of the best movie tie ins in a long time.

Speaking of movies (seamless segue there 8) ) Cinemaware Anthology is £1.19 on Steam at the minute! That's

Defender of the Crown
SDI
The King of Chicago
Sinbad and the Throne of the Falcon
Lords of the Rising Sun
Rocket Ranger
It Came From the Desert
It Came From the Desert II: Antheads
Wings!

And some sports games I'm not interested in for just over a quid! Bargain!

Friend gave me Forbidden Siren 2 on PS2 for free said it was too depressing with the kids parents getting killed at the beginning.. I love Survival Horror but am not familiar with this game controls are a bit weird and those Ringu Girls and other Onryō: Vengeful ghosts or whatever they are I can't seem to kill them but can sight jack them..

Also a 3DS R4 and Valis 3 PC Engine cd where cheap.. Left behind about 20 PS2 games in the charity shop all 50p each stuff like Getaway, Soul Calibre and allLOTR, GTA games and something called Sniper Elie among others
