Now all I need to get is the first bloody roar game on PS1.
I briefly had this, didn't pay much for it and got hardly anything when I sold it on ebay so I had no idea it had any value. I wasn't a fan to be honest, mainly because Primal Fury on the Gamecube had been so much better and 4 seemed worse in every way.

Still, if it's for the collection then it's a nice pick-up anyway as it's not a super-common game in the wild :)

The Walking Dead Survival Instinct on PS3. Ordered from Amazon on Thursday, estimated delivery of 29th - 31st October. It's just popped through the letter box!

Didnt find many favourable reviews and isnt a very long game but its the only FPS I can stand. If youre looking to find a Black Ops beater then you may need to look elsewhere. If it wasnt Walking Dead themed I probably wouldnt enjoy it so much. Some of the trophies are hard though.

Hope you did'nt get put off by that - its my go to Walking Dead fix. That said im not far enough into the other game to really compare.

I read a lot of reviews and wasn't expecting much, but I've just been playing for a bit and enjoying it so far. Managed to get overrun a few times already, which was pretty tense.

The annoying ones are the QTE ones that surprise you - you will soon learn how to avoid or kill them before. As i said I really enjoy it but one of the achievements is turning out a lot harder than it should. Its quite easy to finish but there are a few different trophies and story arcs to aim for. Even getting the crossbow from the outset doesnt spoil it (you have to finish with certain conditions) - check the trophy conditions and then check the relic details on the options menu.

Think Ill have a go later today now as i havent played since the TV show restarted.

The Pal Gamecube games I had with a swap with G Man the nice Jap games I swapped with my friend for my Sega Ages Quartet and SDI, was happy with Bonk as I never knew it existed outside of the PC Engine and Shigami has a figure

Image

I was very kindly given these for free of Blackridge

Image

Tailspin and Nigel Mansells where free from the ever generous Blackridge and Nokgod respectively 8) Strider I had for free of a Amazon seller as I originally bought Shadow Dancer but he sent Strider.. He let me keep Strider and sent me Shadow Dancer for free even refused postage

Image


Bayonetta finally came Okami had for free from my friend

^^^ Bujingai Swordmaster is a bit of a hidden gem. No classic at all but quite fun and stylish :)
