The most boring game in existence
champions return to arms isnt much better either
but the console baldurs gate games are arse anyway
Do you like anything? While I prefer the real BG's, the console offerings are very enjoyable hack n slay rpgs, and the success of the first one spawned loads of nice clones, the Champions series aswell as X-Men Legends (you need to try that one Trev if you like BG)

Ah, nice one Jan :) ....i hadn't realised they were similar. That's a bonus!! tbh, it only came today so i haven't even looked it over properly yet.

Finally got round to getting the new Deus Ex today, shall tide me over to Gears and the new F1 game.
Decided to pick up Inazuma Eleven for the DS as well. I'd seen someone talking about it on another forum, saw it in the shop today and went for it. Looks a bit quirky and a bit different to my normal gaming, so am looking forward to it!

My free games week has had another arrival as well - 25 PS2 games. Couple of wrestling games, Gran Turismo 3, but mostly cheap Racing titles (always worth a shot in my opinion), Tenchu, Soul Calibur 2 and a few others. Can't complain for free!

A nice boxed Xbox Guile Streetfighter 15th anniversary controller, that's the first Xbox one I've got for my collection.

Good to hear man. Bizarrely this has taken like 9 months to come back into the store. I swear it used to be super common.

Much better then Hotel Dusk:Room 215 by the same developer, I just found Hotel far to slow and with very few likable characters, a bit of a shame as it had some fine hand drawn visuals.
Oooooo that's good, as I quite liked Hotel Dusk. Seems to be another game that seems to be getting harder to find in the wild too (round these parts anyway).

Loved the first two games, hated Driv3r with an intense passion and felt a bit 'meh' towards Parallel Lines but this new game looks really fun. Plus the 1969 Dodge Charger is one of my dream cars so it's even harder to resist the model of it that comes packed with the CE...
I might push you over the edge with these next pics then!

I unboxed it just for you lot. ;)

Very nice model. Nice touch; the newspapers blowing over the car have the original Driver cover printed on them!

Got that Sonic X GBA video do-dah through for the Sonic collection too. Will be interesting to see what video looks like on a GBA.

Careful mate, that game can turn into a real time sink! Map's not really needed, though, so don't worry there. If you're on PSN get the Shivering Isles DLC.

just went into a charity shop near me, and was surprised to see about 8-9 gamecube games. picked up these ones, for 1.99 each:

then just before leaving, i asked if they happened to have any more out the back. she said she'd check, and brought out another 8-9! so i got these out of that lot, again for 1.99 each:

Got Goldeneye 007 (Wii), boxed WITH the controller, for just £17.99. Looks barely used too o:
Also, Evergrace after hearing it has one of the best (worst) OSTs.
