On friday I recieved the Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary Edition for Wii that I preordered a few weeks back. I must say I ordered more for the actual packaging and history "booklet" aswell as soundtrack CD than the actual game, which I already own for the SNES. It is a lovely game but I really think they should've included Super Mario World aswell.

...and just 10 minutes ago I ordered Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition aswell as Valkyria Chronicles for the PlayStation 3. An early christmas present for myself! :D

Lot's of great stuff on the 3DO, good choice!
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

£12 is a price that is nice.
Decent was £1
Game thing was £1

Was tempted to get the new Blaze blue (was part of a 2 for £30 in HMV)
Yeah. Great going Dpinny getting Descent for £1. Enjoy it. It can be confusing sometimes knowing which way your spaceship is facing!
Played it years ago on a very old PC.
Been after it for a while just couldnt be arsed to get it off Ebay


I just hope it does work on this Windows 7 PC

Bought off GOG.com for the first time since the 'debacle', for some games to keep me happy over the Christmas when I'll be without any consoles :(

- Spellforce: Platinum
- Outcast
- Might & Magic: 6 Pack
- Interstate '76
- Total Annihilation: Commander Pack
- The Journeyman 2

Came to just over £25 in all :D
Sure, it's DD, but DRM free and I'd find it hard to get these games any other way :/

Bought a PSP Slim off Amazon along with Castlevania X. Then went out and bought Gran Turismo PSP today, only to find that I can't save my progress in either game because I forgot to buy a memory stick. Durrrr. GT is so much fun though!

Apparently I need to update in order to view the PSN store. I'm guessing if I do update that means no homebrew.....
