I bought Dark Souls last week,no idea when i'll get around to playing it though. I also got the steelbook version of Resi 5,i dont have much inclination to ever play it though as I cant stand computer controlled characters.

Got KOF XIII Deluxe Edition yesterday. Great set but couldn't they have put a track listing inside the CD set? It's like some sort of super-hardcore OST where you have to know which game each track is from. Disc 1 is the best with Geese, Krauser and Omega Rugal's themes.

Oh and the game is good too, really good :D
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I agree, the US version has a tracklisting as part of a nice foldout case.
The PAL list is slightly different. Here it is:

The Twin Famicom I ordered a couple of weeks ago arrived today.

Over the weekend I also arranged to buy a boxed Goldstar 3DO. Would have preferred an FZ-1 (just for the looks), but the Goldstar will do for now.

Resistance: Retribution on PSP. So far, an average TPS with good graphics but flawed by the crosshair controls (slow). It could have been better if the player could duck or lie down instead of just standing there as a perfect target for the aliens...

It is indeed. I found mine in HMV for just £2! I was over the moon until I got it home, it was the spanish version! Still it played in English in game. :mrgreen:
