That's one of my favourite Wii games. The controls are sometimes a bit dodgy- the plane level for instance but when it works it really nails what being Indiana Jones is supposed to be about.

That looks quite good fun! Not amazing but enjoyable enough. Might give it a go.

Cool, I'll give it a proper play through then, hopefully I will enjoy it.

Akiba's Trip for PS3. Only bought it for a virtual wander around Akihabara, but it is soooo boring, endless talking, then a bit of rubbish fighting, then more endless talking.

If it's the UK version and you ever fancy getting rid then give me a shout as it's on my wanted list (for better or worse) :wink:

Ferrari Challenge (DS)
Alien Syndrome (Wii)
MadWorld (Wii)

And a replacement 360 PSU - I would have got PES 2015 as well but that turned into a wild goose chase.
Seven shops and none of them had it... :roll:

This week I got two Gameboy Advance SP's off an Ebay auction (one backlit, one frontlit), as well as an Everdrive GB - which is rather splendid.

The frontlit GBA SP actually has its advantages over the much lauded backlit version. For starters, its easier to take pictures of it on my crappy phone camera as the backlit one is TOO bright! Secondly the battery life is better because of it, and also in direct sunlight with the screen light switched off, its quite good for playing original GB games on in Monochrome. The backlit one is still the one to go for though generally....although still the best screen is on the DS Lite.

Got Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax through today. Best bit was that it was sealed from a UK seller at no more cost than a regular UK PS3 game so no messing about with importing. Oh and it has a 40-page full colour manual...unheard of these days!

Also got the Street Fighter Tribute artbook from Amazon. Really nice book that goes with my Darkstalkers Tribute book.
