Picked up Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes for the DS (£19.95, on sale at GAME) as I'm a massive fan of everything Might & Magic. Have to say - this is turning out to be one of my favourite DS games yet!

If you like strategy RPGs, you owe it to yourself to get this one - it's unlike anything else I've played in the genre and it's just perfect for on-the-go gaming.

Picked up an unboxed Sega GameGear today, with TV tuner for £5... it was a little bit scruffy looking but after a shine up with captapin WD40, looks pretty much new! Well happy with the find :D

A few old...
Body Harvest (N64) - Spent about 15 minutes getting all the stickers off the box and the cart- damn you, Blockbuster Video from 1999!
Chopper Attack (N64) - Box in bits but the intsructions were in there- no stickers on this one, thankfully.
Both £5, both games I read about back in the N64 days but never got the chance to play.

And a few new...
Dead Rising (360) - £12
Dead Space (360) - £8
And for now, that's all the 360 games I'll be getting. I need to complete the ones I've got and successfully catch up with the past five years in video gaming before getting anything else.

Got my SCART lead for the ST today, the picture is absolutely stunning, well pleased with t, like a VGA monitor or something. Might buy a few more RF replacements for other computers.

I dunno about bargain I think its about going rate maybes a bit under, but this^ game is criminally underated, the music is sublime!

James Pond 3 is sonic lite and a bit rubbish
Real Monsters is quite fun and Jurassic Parks ok

Ive not brought anymore games.....

Techno Cop *whistles*
