^^I've seen the final boss but don't think I'm anywhere close to defeating him. Haven't played for a good while now as got fed up trying to kill him.

Basically I didn't have a decent healer in my team by the time I got to him, and my only option (pretty much) is to go and change one (or more) of my character's job classes and grind him up all the way from level 1 to learn enough decent spells to keep my team alive. Sod that.

With my track record on RPG's I can safely say I won't get past the first town. Ah well! :lol: :lol:

I bought Go Go Cosmo Corps on DS for £1.50. No idea what it is but it had cool manga characters on the front :oops:

I also bought Super Pokemon Rumble on 3DS complete for £7.50. Reportedly a rubbish title but I love pokemon so figured I'd give it a go :)

Would be interested to hear your thoughts on Remember Me. I was really looking forward to this before i read the fairly average reviews.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

After about 4 years of seeing it on the shelves of CeX with that same £18 price sticker on it, they FINALLY trimmed £6 off Marvel vs Capcom 2 (Xbox). I wasn't going to miss that!

Oh, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 for the 360.

John Deere Harvest in the Hearltand for the DS. My other half bought it for me as a "joke", she found it for a couple of quid at a car boot- and with me being a fully grown 31yr old beared actual farmer she thought it was ammusing.

Was this game even avalible in the UK?

I've never heard of it, but checking ebay it appears to be US only. Looking at Metacritic the reviews are pretty poor, especially IGN's...

Even if John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland worked perfectly, it would be an uninspired, unattractive game that beats the player over the head with its sponsor. Harvest Moon finally branched out their series, and Harvest in the Heartland is just one big step backwards. However, the game's engine is so poor that is makes John Deere too frustrating and slow to even bother with. Go plant some tomatoes in your garden. Not only will it be more fulfilling, it will probably take less time too.

Having read that however, I'd still be interested! :o Was your copy boxed with manual btw?

:lol:

Yeah, its complete.
I had a quick blast on it, just to prove to mrs Tux that i apprciated the "joke". Its certainly not the greatest game of all time, in fact its appaling , but its kinda so naff its cool.
Maybe.

all for ps2:
burnout
wipeout fusion
time crisis 3
all complete and in excellent condition £1 each

it looks like the time crisis should have come with a gun con because it says not to be sold separate where the bar code should be.

Fez - It's brilliant. I love it. Its just fun, and weirdly emotional too. But it's the former that makes it a joy to play. Incredible.
