Never heard of Dogs Life. It's The Dog Island that I've read about. Will have to see if I can grab a copy on the PS2 over the weekend.

I remember dogs life and it was far better then I thought it would be, I had a fantastic time playing it and would pick it up again if I saw it anywhere

I've not played it. However, it's comes with a reputation as a massive time sink that requires you to do a serious amount of grinding to get anywhere, so I wouldn't worry about it not lasting.

A near mint copy of Bloodrayne 2 for PS2. Sold this a few years back but recently questioned why since I really enjoyed the game. Looking forward to playing through again.

Found a few things worth buying in GAME of all places today. Was pleasantly surprised at the selection and could have bought more but y'know, money and all that:

So mainstream it hurts.

Does anybody know if Nitro Blasterz is meant to have a manual? I don't expect one these days to be fair but I was just curious. All I have is a set of bonus postcards. It was sold as new.

It's not bad. Plays like a cross between Rampage and King of The Monsters. There is a slow, methodical pace to the gameplay (which suits it just fine... A 50m tall, 20,000 tonne kaiju isn't going to move like Usain Bolt, after all). Lots of fan service too.

I'd say £15 was a fair price to pay. Full price (£45, IIRC) would have felt like "too much".

I got fed up of flaky PS4 controllers so i thought i'd take a look and see what else was available. I looked at what the pro's use and found that most tournament players use SCUF pads.....so i thought i'd join them.

My god its fantastic! Its been hand built to my specifications. Everything feels so precise and the paddles make a hell of a difference in FPS's as you don't have to take your thumb off the analogue stick as often (on my pad X and O are mapped to them). The thumbsticks (that i specified) are longer and are more rubberised on the top so are much grippier than the default sticks. It feels really solidly built too. A few pics:

Now i've just got to test out its durability...... :D
