Bought quite a bit recently:

Yakuza 3 (PS3)
Dead or Alive Paradise (PSP)

Also got all these 3DO games (complete with manuals and scratch-free discs) from ebay for just £24 the lot:

The Need for Speed
John Madden Football
Pebble Beach Golf Links
Burning Soldier
Blade Force
Theme Park
Alone in the Dark
Foes of Ali
Hell: A Cyberpunk Thriller
Starblade
VR Stalker


The only one I'm not happy with is Hell since it's the US version without the big box and instructions. Will look to replace it at some point.

Had a splurge on PSP games this week.

Blazblue portable (US Import) £19.00, (Im very happy with this even though it cost me a bit more than I would usually pay for a PSP game).
Capcom classics collection remixed £7.00
Power Stone collection £4.99
Taitio legends power up £6.00
The King of the fighters collection the orochi saga £6.00

Would have also had Guilty gear judgement day for £4.99 but when I went to pay for it the bloke behind the counter couldnt find the the UMD :(

Now i couldn't get on with Lock's Quest at all....just didn't like the building aspect. It got on my nerves very quickly.

In a flurry of e-bay excitement having bought myself a CRT I picked up some PSone goodies...

Oddworld: Abe's Odyssey & Abe's Exodus (I loved these but was never good enough to get very far into them, the "This is Rupture Farms..." intro gives me the gamer shivers every time).

Time Crisis (and Time Crisis 2 for PS2)
Point Blank
G-Con

Hoping they'll look sweet on my new (old) TV.

I found it quite weird that a title would be censored, i don't think that has ever accured since. Game content gets cesored all the time here, suprised a title would get cut, Imagine playing Grand Borrow Auto IV.

Bart VS The Space Mutants (MD)- picking up all the simpsons games for the MD, Virtual Bart is going to be the hardest and most expensive to get.

ROCKET KNIGHT ADVENTURES (MD)- Ill Give it a go, but heard mixed reviews everywhere.
Zombies is only different to Zombies Ate My Neighbors in the name, and in the replacement of chainsaws with axes. If you'd've gone for the SNES version, you'd've had green blood!
All of the Simpsons games on the Mega Drive are horrible, but I'm still strangely drawn to them. After Virtual Bart myself (the best of the three).
And Rocket Knight Adventures is utterly amazing, there's not many games on the Mega Drive better than that one, seriously!
Got a chance to play all 3 last night. Zombies is a treat, i knew it was only censored by name, but what a game. really fun. Bart vs Space Mutants is a horrible joke, those simpson games were rushed out like crazy. Rocket Knight was brilliant, love it, much better than sonic or wonderboy. will be playing that one for awhile to come.

thanks for the comments.

Well, God of War and Oblivion, as well as a few other things I ordered off eBay this week (and have already mentioned) arrived yesterday.

For the rest of the week I ordered a Nintendo 64 deck with carts of Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire (which I loved back in the day) and Top Gear Overdrive. It also came with a cool looking Yoshi toy, so for AUD$55 all up (inc postage), I didn't think it was too bad.

Also ordered BioShock (original case, not Platinum etc) and Star Trek: Legacy for the 360. I'm looking forward to the latter, though feel I'll be disappointed...

Just read this and it reminded me to try and find the Futurama game on XBOX. Never played it, but had always wanted it and could never find it. Just got it for about AUD$11 inc postage off eBay.
