I recently picked up the Batman - Return to Arkham collection from the xbox marketplace during the sale. I would say the "HD" upgrade is subtle at best but saying that i'm used to playing them maxed out on a PC so maybe if I came from the 360 version i'd notice more detail...
Still a great collection and worth the price tag.

Also I received Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and Zelda - Windwaker for the Wii U at Christmas from the other half so they'll keep me busy for quite some time I think :mrgreen:

Picked up another PSP 2000 in white last weekend. This takes my total to 5 PSP's. :mrgreen:
The PSP is still my main emulator machine.
Love them. :D

Finally took the plunge with Street Fighter V for PS4...and was met with a 10GB+ update estimated at 4 hours to download. LOL.

Had a quick mess about in training with Cammy (oo-er) and I quite like the overall look and feel to the fighting. Enjoying finding new moves or move properties and loads of stuff seems to chain together very easily, often by accident which is fun! Single player content looks rubbish though and I can see that Capcom have clearly geared this game straight at tourney types. It wouldn't have killed them at all to include simple stuff like an arcade mode would it? I ain't picking up PS+ just to use this online so I'll get what I can from the game and that will be that I suppose :(

KOF XIV and DOA5:LR might still be the champs I reckon.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Got a new graphics card for my PC, so got Total War: Warhammer and Football Manager 2017. Admittedly one of those doesn't need fancy graphics but I wanted it anyway. Also got Sega 3D Classics Collection for the 3DS.

Gonna be modding some SNES machines to run all region games for events

Mostly SuFami and they are cheaper than the PAL/NTSC ones
Needed a game to test them

Fire Emblem Awakenings for the 3ds, £24 as part of an amazon flash sale so much for not buying any games this month, as I have enough to keep me busy with my Xmas goodies.
