Terraria is utter junk despite the good things I've heard about it. Or maybe it's just not my thing. Either way it'll be on eBay over the weekend.

I didn't get Terraria either although I know others love it.

Terraria is an odd game. It's sounds good on paper but i found the execution abit lacking. Not the worst 3ds game but it's certainly not far off. IMHO.

Picked up Ray Gigant and Bloodborne digitally via the PS Store (£25 for the complete edition of BB was good enough for me to jump aboard). I also added the physical release of Futuridium to my Vita collection. It was limited to around 2,000 copies, much like the rest of the Limited Run releases:

Not really a purchase but I signed up to Boomerang rentals. Right now I'm on a free trial but I plan to use the £9.99 unlimited package. I like to think that renting games will be substantially cheaper than buying the bloody things :lol:

It's not good...it really isn't. This is coming from somebody who a) likes these sorts of JRPG's and b) is a huge Darkstalkers fanboy so was dead excited for a crossover RPG with Morrigan, Felicia etc. as playable characters.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

^ I second that! I love me my JRPGs, and that game has to be one of the worst I've played. Seriously poor.

Most of my latest purchases apart from Nes Rodland found this under the bed didn't realise I even had it.. Huge fan of the turtles but feel I wasted my money on the game not a patch on Transformers..

Ha! I really enjoyed it. A tad repetitive but I enjoyed the skits and the OTT combos in battles.

Anyway, I did a CEX run today and ended up swapping some stuff out for these. Dragon Age for the missus and the other 2 for me
