That Udon tribute book is ace. Loads of cool artwork.

I need to get Fighting Climax along with Under Night. Might finally get BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma too seeing as I have a working ps3. Been without for months and there are loads of wants!

Just ordered Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia for DS. Hoping it's as good as the first 2 DS Castlevanias!

To be fair, I don't think I can stand another book with Ryu on the cover!

All PS3 games are region-free as far as I know mate. The only exception is the original Persona 4 Arena which was locked. There's a UK seller on ebay knocking out brand-new copies of Dengeki Bunko for £39.99 with free courier p&p which is where I got mine. No more expensive than a regular UK game and no messing around with importing :)

Also had these turn up from Playasia today: Onechanbara Z Kagura and Valkyria Chronicles III: Extra Edition:

had a pang of nostalgia for old skool xcom. saw them on ebay and snapped em up, its probably been nearly 15 years since I have played either on ps1.

really chuffed with the copy of tftd it's immaculate! :shock: probably better condition than the one I used to have! enemy unknown is a little grubby,cleaned up the casing though, its just the manual which isn't in great condition. the discs are perfect.
been after those two ps3 games for a while, noticed there was only a couple left on amazon so grabbed em while the stocks last.

^^^ I struggled to find Asura's Wrath for ages and ended up buying online. The last time I went into GAME, they had a whole shelf of used copies! Sod's law and all that...

Not sure prinn. I know that's NEO didn't get great reviews but EXA is supposed to be (much) better (still have to find that one). As for Robin Hood, that was an impulse buy as its not a true rpg...but i kinda like the premise. I'm sure i'll get around to giving it a go in 2016 or so and i'll let you know..... :)

since i already have a LE Peach Nintendo 3DS, an original Nintendo 3DS (yes, i'm an ambassador) and a 3DS XL, i had no intention of buying the new 3DS Ambassador Edition, but... i have ordered it since i'm weak

luckily i've managed to sell my original 3DS today together with the Circle Pad Pro so i feel a little less guilty :oops:

I've recently got myself a copy of the DS version of Geometry Wars Galaxies.

I've had the Wii version for a couple of months now, but it's been left untouched until I got the DS game too - which finally arrived this morning.

In other news, I've finally got myself a Raspberry Pi - which I plan on getting as much use as possible out of - once I teach myself Linux...
