Picked up Hulk for the Cube yesterday.

Not Ultimate Destruction but the one that was released around the same time as the film.

I had that once. It's okay with some bloody weird enemies/bosses but I remember getting stuck only a few stages in and getting too pissed off to carry on. Maybe a good game for a "half arsed let's play" vid? :wink:

After seeing people on here rave about the Xillia games, thought I'd snap up both the Day One versions while I still can. Looking forward to playing them, though I've still got my Atelier games to wade through! :lol:
Very nice :) . Wish I'd finished the first Xillia at the right time to go straight into the sequel but there was a bit of a gap and I've started other things so my Day 1 Xillia 2 is sat on the shelf...very nice steelbook though 8)

I've not yet started Atelier Rorona either but I picked up the 'Plus' enhancement the other month so I'm assuming the original is pretty much completely redundant for me.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I loved that game. In fact its the only game i've ever bothered to get all the trophies on. Its not particularly difficult but it doesn't really matter. I can only describe it as playing a fairytale. :D

Being a bit picky about what I want now, and paying top dollar for games I know that I want in good condition, like this

I know what you mean. The aesthetics and rhyming dialogue really lend to that.

Sayimg that, I love the fact that Rubella always fails to rhyme her dialogue. From the look on Ignaculus' face, he takes it personally. :D

Yeah, he does. :lol: TBH, the rhyming is probably the game's weakest link. I couldn't fault the rest of it.

Thought Origins was a bloody incredible experience, so definitely wanted to get the game in. Even if it's just more of the same, I'll be happy seeing as that equates to more awesome.

The games. All complete except Soviet Strike which has the disc missing

Dont think i need to tell you what a bargain that was. With that many games even just one of the consoles for that price would still have been a deal. Final Fight is a definite high point.

Not round here its not - never find this kind of bargain round here. Last one I found on FB was near my parents in Wales - was a bargain but had to wait to collect from them for 2 months.
