360 pick ups.

Full Auto- £3
Gun- £4
Skyrim- £1

Remember Full Auto being a bit fun when I played it on a store demo over a decade ago, Gun was pretty decent from what little I played of the Gamecube version.....also over a decade ago. XD

And Skyrim......a pound game is a pound game.

Gun is amazing and is worth every penny for the story alone, the voice casting is top notch and graphically its aged well too although sadly I don't thonk Konami would ever give it the HD remake treatment nor would they give it a sequel.

While Microsoft have stopping giving us new backward compat titles on XBONE, they apparently will be adding more new titles once their new console comes out with all the existing Back Compat games on day 1, so I think with all the games Activision (Not Konami) have submitted like nearly all the 360 CODs and it not being licenced like something like Tony Hark, I think Gun might have a decent shot.

Does the 360 version of Gun contain the extra content added to the PSP version? Not sure if the 360 one was a later release, as PSP was initially the 'best' version despite the reduction in graphical fidelity (looks great for a PSP game though, and a fave on the system).

Around 40 rarer Commodore 16 plus 4 games as I try for a complete set. Including Anco Demolition which I thought never actually got a release. Think the Anco games will be impossible to source

And PS4 Dead or Alive in the charity shop

No idea, mostly wanted it for the achievements as an extra incentive to go back and play through it full (Which the achievements look to be mostly story and difficulty based and only 30 of em, so won't be too hard.)

Yakuza 7 (import). The change in combat is interesting while the rest of the game is same old awesome Yakuza with a nice new protagonist and city. I've already put a good 20+ hours into what essentially equates to the intro of the game, and now things are opening up. Another 100+ hour game for sure!

Shinobi, you are going for a complete C16 plus 4 collection, or are you trying to complete a subset?

Looks like it will be a U.K set after people on Facebook have brought to my attention lots of German games, or game I never thought existed outside of Magazine adverts. Several Anco games like Atlantis never turn up

Had 3DS Wario Ware Gold in Argos for £5 reduced from £30. Also got Metro PS4 as it was £10, I heard it needs to be played on easy to enjoy it as it’s very hard.
