A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that a shop I frequent had a Mega CD in. It seemed that today was the day to try and talk someone into a deal and buy it. Unfortunately, despite it being priced at the lower end of the ebay BINs it was still about twice what I would have able to pay (up for £90, bossman there wouldn't budge). :(

Still, I did get nice CIB copies of Sonic 3 and World of Illusion though so it wasn't a wasted visit. :D

Also got Injustice for the 360 BTW.

Just downloadable games for me this past week, Olli Olli and Trials Evolution on the Vita, Metro Last Light thanks to Playstation Plus and Steamworld Dig on the 3DS.

Been playing Olli Olli, I'm not quite sold on it yet but I'm hoping it'll grow on me.

Picked up another 2 games over the weekend.

Got Infected on PSP for £2 which I'm curious to try out.

But I was most happy with Dark Chronicle which I found in a charity shop for 99p, I've been looking for a copy of this for years and never seen one, I've wanted it ever since I played a demo of it. Only noticed out of the corner of my eye after I'd already walked past it.

Bit of a splurge today as a shop was closing down not too far from me

Casshern anime and Dragonball Z were from my brothers
Most items were 99p except ToFu and GBA games which were £2.50 each

Boxed copy of Armourines for the N64 via Amazon.

The box was pretty much crushed & well used, but the game was in good condition. Fired it up to have a bit of a play through the first two levels as well.

Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

After getting rid of some stuff in Game, i got Chronicles of Riddick Dark Athena for a fiver on PS3 and The Lone Ranger on blu ray. Also got Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 collectors edition from CEX for £4. The book and soundtrack that come with it are in minty fresh condition, so am chuffed to bits with that.
