XBox

Sonic Riders- £5
Sonic Heroes- £4 (Just to complete the Sonic games on the console)
I have no idea why people liked Heroes, everytime I have played it it turns into a glitch fest
It was decent enough back in the day, but yes it has aged pretty badly.

That and the Gamecube version ran best. PS2 version ran horrid.
I first played it on a demo pod at HMV
Even then I felt it was a glitchy mess

It takes getting used to, especially today when there are far better Sonic games out there. Its far from the worst. Glitchy at times yeah, but its no Sonic 06.


On another matter, seems I discovered how to buy digital XBONE games from any region. So instead of paying the £16 for Batman Return to Arkham that the UK store asks for, I got it for $6 (+ 10% tax) on the US store. Pretty handy...

...oh, and I spoiled my 360 again with way too many digital downloads.....

Got quite a bit of money for Xmas, so thats mostly going on digital games thanks to sales. Gotten started on XBox so far, few highlights include River City Girls, Final Fantasy VII and the whole XIII trilogy (Just a sucker for the 360 as always.), Sonic Mania, and others. Will be making my way to the Switch sale next and getting Spiderman for my poor barely played PS4.

Also 1 physical game, Mario Tennis Wii U for £6 in CeX.

Didn't buy it myself, but got a 'TheC64 Maxi' for Christmas :D


It was a really weird, but really good, thing to be unwrapping for Christmas in 2019!


Ps. VIC 20 emulation is Excellent!
