The weirdest thing happened to me. I got the PS3 Platinum copy of Dragon Age: Origins yesterday only to realise that the codes for the "free" DLC were nowhere to be seen. Went back to the store today and had them open a new copy in front of me and yet again no codes were present so I got my money back. That's when I decided to get the Ultimate Editon (all DLC on-disc) off thehut.com for even less than the Spanish Platinum. Gotta love UK prices and crappy GBP.

Gradius V on the PS2, think that's the very last game on my PS2 'want' list.

Couldn't resist a few more cheapies in Gamestation today so I picked up (all games on my mental 'wanted' list):

Hulk Ultimate Destruction (PS2)
Maximo (PS2)
Otogi 2 (Xbox)

Also received Gundam Battle Assault on the PS1 courtesy of Nokgod :) . Already got the second game so I have 2 sweet-looking 2D fighters full of awesome mechs to try out. Anybody else played either game? Have to admit that I don't know much about Gundam in general though I've always liked the look of it.

2 is the better of the games more pilots and mechs to choose form faster smoother and more balanced game play
the (western ) version is a complete mish mash of pilots thoug gatherd from gundam 0079 0083 zeta double zeta and wing

So are the Japanese PS1 versions slightly different content-wise then?

Theres loads of stuff on Towin market games wise, a few GBAs/Micros/Sps didnt want to pay £15 for one. Loads of over priced loose Game boy games.

Was going to pick up a PSP 1000 for £30

But couldn't see it working

Edit, Pushover is going in the Replay Lucky dip

yes the japanese battle assault ( called battle master 2 there was a battle master 1 which has not been released in the west ) has a different story line and no wing gundam
( gundam wing was just becoming popular which is why bandai included it it plays like the zeta gundam )

battle assualt 2 saw the removal of 4 characters and the addition of 14 new characters

there is a gundam seed battle assualt on the gba

and finally battle assault 3 featuring gundam seed on the ps 2
hey wait ! i got a new complaint !

Just got this on ebay for £70. It's a PAL console in a white Jap case. I was planning on doing this myself at some point, buying one of each and swapping the insides over, but this saves me all the hassle. The next step is to get it modded with a 50/60hz switch and multi region switch. End result will be a region free white Saturn with no need for a step down converter. 8)

I always thought that out UK/US Gundam Battle Assault games on PS1 were just ports of the Kidou Butouden G Gundam and Shin Kidou Senki Gundam W PS1 games from the Japanese Simple Characters 2000 Series.


Edit: Plus I did actually buy games this week.

Legend Of Zelda: Majoras Mask on N64 in NTSC-J format. (So I guess it would be Zeruda no Densetsu Mujura no Kamen)
Goldeneye 007 on N64 in NTSC format.
That glorious b*stard before Mr X.
