Picked up Professor Layton and the Curious Village today. I did own it along with Pandora's Box which I loaned out and never got back. Just need to pick up PB again now.

^^^ You need to do a gameplay vid thingie of that Altered Beast Prinny - I bet the commentary on such a fine game would be classic :)

I wouldn't wish Altered Beast on my worst enemy. I completed the PS2 version somehow... the only upside is that it was never released in America so its sort of sort after over there.

Paper Mario Colour Splash - a very relaxing game. Great music and graphics. I'd forgotten I'd pre-ordered this, until I got an email telling me it had been dispatched!

It is really good! Impressed with the picture and how good the games look. It is great if you are short for space to have all the consoles out.

A complete punt just because it happened to be in-stock at my local game store. Spent the past hour setting it up and, after a brief shot with Until Dawn, I'm very impressed! Currently downloading a tonne of updates for the various other games (digital & physical), can't wait to get stuck in.

Crack Converters just had a fair few Mega Drive and PS1 games come in - it's annoying that I didn't have very much spare on me but still managed to snag Incredible Crisis and Street Fighter Collection 2.
