I got the urge to play DOOM today for some reason, it's the first time I've missed my 360 since getting my PS3 (my 360 unfortunately RROD'd a while back :( ), but after realizing it's not on PSN I went for the second best thing, Wolfenstein 3D. playing on Bring Em On aswell as playing hardcore (only saving at the beginning of levels, and only loading a file once. game over? restart the chapter!)

Seeing as Blockbuster have now stopped selling preowned PC and Xbox games for 95p each, and have instead gone back to the "£1.95 each or 5 for £5" thingumajig, picked up the following on original Xbox:

SWAT
The Simpsons Hit & Run
Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon
Vexx
Need For Speed Underground 2

The also had GTA San Andreas but I've got that already, quite chuffed to rebuy Broken Sword as I never really bothered with it years back.

Finally managed to get a SEGA power base converter off ebay last night and just bought the master system version of Choplifter to go with it.

Can't wait for them to show up in the post!

I'd been giving serious thought to getting a 3DS but decided against it (I have an astigmatism, and 3D gives me headaches so I didn't see the point). So instead I replaced my faulty launch day PSP with a shiny black PSP-3003. I got Tekken 6 and Ace Combat X: Skies of Deception with it.

All for considerably less than I'd set aside for buying a 3DS. :D
