Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and Sonic & All Stars Racing: Transformed arrived this morning from ShopTo. Both on Wii U. I don't have a Wii U yet. :(

It's payday today and I got a good £200 more than I thought I would. Rock on! Treated myself to the Darkness II & Spec Ops the Line for a combined £25. These, along with my recently bought copy of Lolipop Chainsaw, should keep me busy for a few weeks :)
Well thankfully the console turned up today (as discovered by my cat!) so I'll be sure to give it a decent amount of playtime tomorrow as I've got the day off :D

Good choices on darkness 2 and spec ops, both are very decent shooters that's really enjoyed. Darkness 2's quad wielding was bloody awesome in the larger firefights :mrgreen:

picked this up on the way to work for the princely sum of £1.45 - no instructions though but still a good buy by the looks of it. Never ever heard of it, but the box looks ace!

I picked this "Halo 3-pack" up yesterday at JB Hifi here in New Zealand, but I can't seem to find anything about it online, does anyone know if it was released anywhere else?

It was from Amazon.com & was $39.95, which worked out at £40 including shipping & import fees. :) I've just checked Amazon now & the cheapest price is $89.95 & on eBay it's more or less the same price. I dithered over whether to buy it & the only place was Amazon.com as it was sold out everywhere else.

Ah, in that case you should be able to get it for £25 inc. shipping from eBay or VG+. :)

Not a game or console, but the missus bought me a X-rocker gaming chair, with the speakers by the ears, and it's mental! Tried it yesterday with The Punisher on Final Burn, and with he sound up full, it's like being back in the arcade!! Going to try it with Outrun next, for that imitation deluxe sit-down cab 'feel' :D

^ Reviews have been fairly positive. Apparently plays a bit like Zelda 2.
