What makes you say such crazy heresy?!
You did know you could make the top screen automatic, yeah?
Its overrated - and I just didn't need it, so it had to go.

The touch screen controls are pap. Sorry.

Picked up Guitar Hero 5 for XBOX 360 last week.

Last night I won a boxed woodgrain Atari 2600 on eBay. Comes with Donkey Kong (boxed), Space Invaders, Netmaker, Hey! Stop!, Space Raid, Pac-Kong, Venture and Bermuda. Hopefully it'll arrive either later this week or early next week.

38 DS games for £2 each, think of all the worst girly games you can on DS and they are pretty much all there, will give most to my daughterss as Birthday/Christmas presents but some seem to be worth trading in and getting something half decent in exchange.

A few games from Cash Converters today:

Baldurs Gate Darka Alliance II (XBOX) - £1.99
Capcom vs SNK 2 EO (XBOX) - £1.99
Red Dead Revolver (PS2) - £1.99
Ratchet and Clank: A Crack In Time (PS3) - £3.00 :shock:

I'll be keeping the latter to play for a bit but the others are headed straight to Ebay as they have some decent potential resale value to help boost the coffers...

I love that game! It's pretty hard to find too but I found it for £15 on release which I was pleased with. It's like an extremely basic FF Tactics with typical anime JRPG humour and of course, witches with MASSIVE knockers. When you come across the character 'Vanessa' you'll see what I mean.

Think the sequel came out over here too but it was massively obscure. Get the US version which has an artbook covering both games and an OST. The artbook in particular contains all the...*ahem* measurements for the characters :oops:

Picked up this little beauty

Image

Must say it's absoloutely brilliant.

Tried picking up a normal DS lite for a quick play and literally couldn't cope with it.
The DSi XL is just so much better suited for a blokes hands.

Brilliant purchase.
Really pleased with it.

Those are Hori accessories. The case is lovely and soft inside.
Can't seem to get em over here to had to get them sent over from Hong Kong.

Oh and an Acekard 2i for mp3's...
