Fuse was free (with ShopTo points) but when did The Guided Fate Paradox come out? I got the one of the last copies on ShopTo but it completely passed me by

^ The Guided Fate Paradox is absolutely aces, very addictive roguelike system. Didn't think it came out too long ago, got my copy December.

OK, I try and track these quirky RPG's and failed to spot this one. Luckily got it in time.

Still a couple more coming out this month!

A Game Boy Micro - a little bashed about but for a tenner it was far cheaper than any ebay BIN. More comfortable than I expected it to be and the screen is sooooooooooooo good! No washed out SP shenanigans here, nosiree.

Yet more hardware - A Mega Drive II with six games (all boxed), £11.25.

As far as I'm aware the grey is the original release and the pink is a reprint. No changes to the game so only of interest to completist collectors in the long run.
Thanks for that - much appreciated!

look at it sideways wrote:Ys Memories of Celceta and Dangan Ronpa, both for the Vita. Taking a bit of a punt on both, fingers crossed and all that.
Not got round to playing Ys yet, but Dangan Ronpa is fantastic. Any vita owner should give it a go - it's only £29.99 in HMV right now (as is Ys) - bargain!

I've also cancelled my pre-order for South Park Stick of Truth this week, and I've ordered it on import from the US instead. I'm not keen at all on this censorship business.

Although it was over a week a go I recently picked up Alex Kidd in Miracle World boxed with instructions.

Over the weekend I picked up a copy of Power Strike (cart only) for the Master System for a lovely £2 :mrgreen: If only I could stumble upon Power Strike 2...
