As is Final Fantasy XII. Much better than X and X-2 in my opinion.
Still need to do XII..

Think they found a better home with you. Glad to oblige. I quite enjoyed what I played of Star Ocean (TTEOT) but Im sad to say FF XII never made it into my console.

By Thursday I was convinced that I might have nothing to list this week, since the one game i got in the post earlier that week didn't work. But then I went out Thursday afternoon, my g/f convinced me to check out a cash converters i don't go in anymore because they have hardly had any new stock for the year, and then on Friday I picked up some DS games in a deal at Gametraders, so Ive got a bit more than i expected to have this week.

Image

Finally picked up Splatterhouse (360) I've always wanted it but waited for a decent price, I found it for $9. Fun gory game, but I can see the faults many people had with it when it came out years back, horrible loading times, cheap deaths and unforgiving checkpoints. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it, thanks to that combination of grief. Already Have a Japanese copy of Fahreniet, but i couldn't pass on a Pal copy for $3, and Trapt looks pretty interesting from what I have played of it. Modern Warfare 3 was cheap enough so i grabbed it but I can't play FPS on the Wii, it just drives me nuts.

Bought Railfan Taiwan off of a local seller on ebay for a few dollars, thought it would be something interesting for my collection but not fun to play. but I was surprised how much i got into it when i was testing it out. Picked up an Ex Rental copy of Game Of Thrones for $10, and doubt anyone rented it because the disc is mint. Played some of it this morning, and I thought i was going to hate it since it has that kind of battle system I hate, But I played the first chapter and had a lot of fun with it, I usually get lost in RPG menus with Skills, Abilities and Traits, but this game is really streamlined for someone not into RPGs, i picked everything up rather quickly, can't wait to play some more.

Found some decent DS games, they are all pretty good. And won War Gods cheap enough off ebay, one of those horrible fighters that i get a kick out of.

Bought myself a boxed & complete Aqua Blue Nintendo 3DS off ebay with Super Mario 3d Land, Fifa 12 3D, SSF IV 3D (gah! I HATE Street FIghter!!!) and Splinter Cell 3D, for £130 including postage. So, it looks like SSF IV and FIFA might be off to CEX when they come through.
JSW's Guff Emporium! <- My bit of t'internet.

^ Doubly wrong as I have Cartoon Network Racing - it lulls you into a false sense of security for the first few tracks then their layouts suddenly become incredibly convoluted and confusing. Not to mention the vehicles handle like absolute crap and some are even too wide to go through certain paths that you need to take to have a chance of winning!

Good to know! Rogue Galaxy is eating my time at the moment, though.
Star Ocean is baaaaad. Final Fantasy XII however is the best game ever made. Buy a US version though, much better.

My thanks to shiftytigger for FFXII and Star Ocean! :D
Lovely :) . I only have the bottom two myself thus far. Have the first three Disgaea games but have been too scared to even start on the first one in case it owns me. One day soon...

I'm just amazed that there even exists a 'Price is Right' game. Also the fact that the font on the cover looks like the GTA logo.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

This week was one of the best weeks I've ever had. Not just a lot of great games but also a truly one of a kind collector's item that was unknown to exist!
