Okamiden usually goes for around £25-£30 nowadays. It doesn't seem to be that difficult to pick up online but on the high street...I've seen more evidence of unicorns listening to walkmans than finding this game.

In other news I picked up Undertale for the Vita. What a quirky game, I'm really enjoying it. The writing especially is excellently done, I've laughed a few times at the situations in the game. The combat is really well done too, encouraging you to make friends rather than enemies. It's worth a pick up if anyone is on the fence about buying it.

I bought a PS2 today for £20 in fairly decent condition. Doesn't play anything but PS2 games though for some reason, but I have a Blu-ray player and a PSOne already.

The laser will probably be semi-knackered then. The first thing that usually dies is CD format playback (since they stress the laser more than DVD discs). PS1 games are on CD's obviously and so are the PS2 games with blue-bottomed discs. DVD movies might also be an issue since the laser has to read the disc constantly as opposed to not 100% of the time with actual games. PS2 lasers are fragile and not worth replacing to be honest although there's no harm in trying to clean them or even following one of the realignment guides online as either can sometimes get a laser working properly again.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Yakuza Kiwami
After Yakuza 0 hooked me I had to get this in, though I'm still just mucking around in Y0 and ignoring story, so it might be a while until I start it!
Warriors All Stars
Sophie from Atelier, Honoka from DOA, Opoona too. By all accounts there are less modes, but the cast should make up for that
Rabi-Ribi
Picked this one up on a whim tbh, hoping it'll scratch my platforming itch like Shantae did

Destiny 2, looks like this one will actually have a proper story you can follow in the game, without any need to go to some website
