Good choice (well, maybe not the third Sly game). I'd recommend grabbing Killzone, Terraway, Gravity Rush and Freedom Wars as well. All should be fairly cheap, and exlcusive to the platform currently.
Thanks for the recommendations, but there not really my type of games -especially Killzone as I hate FPS.

I'll be looking to pick up stuff like Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc and it's sequel, Xblaze Code Embryo, Marvel vs Capcom, Street Fighter x Tekken, Hyperdimension Neptunia PP and similar titles.

I'll probably pick up Uncharted: Golden Abyss first as I've never played any uncharted games and want to see what the fuss is about.

Those are also good choices. Uncharted is a bit of a marmite game, I like it but it has several problems - worst of which is the bloody touch screen/gyro mini game crap.

Marvel Vs Capcom 3 is bloody brilliant though. Bar the static backgrounds its a perfect port with excellent controls. It looks amazing on the Vita as well. Its by far my favourite Vita fighter if you don't count the PSP port of SF Alpha 3.

Been a quiet week on the buying front, especially when compared to previous weeks, just a single current gen game so far

Sunset Overdrive X1 - It's alright...I'm finding the music far more enjoyable than the game at the moment though. Reminds me a lot of Jet Set Radio though, which is no bad thing.

I'm getting COD at midnight tonight (I wasn't that bothered by getting it, but as I'm doing Union training this week I have Monday off, so thought why not), but I doubt either will take me away from Horizon 2 or Shadow of Mordor for some time.

On the DC front, I've purchased the very last Shmup I needed to have them all. Chaos Field will be here very shortly.

Darkness 2 is good fun , but it starts winding down when you think it's warming up! Far, far too short.

secured me a new SNES copy of Link to the Past last night - one of my all-time favs
LFGdating | Goldeneye, Red Alert and KOTOR are probably my Top 3 of all-time.

Possibly the nicest condition MCD game i've ever seen:

£2.50 local charity shop. I don't have an MCD, nor do i want one, but i felt compelled to buy it. No doubt it'll be Random Niceness + fodder at some point. :)

CoD: Advance Warfare, which I bought Monday, and am loving it! The single player is really good, and the ingame graphics on the 360 are some of the best I've ever seen. Gave the multiplayer a bit of a bash, too, and its really good fun also.
JSW's Guff Emporium! <- My bit of t'internet.
