Just picked up Mighty No9 on the wiiU for a fiver

Last week bought Ghost recon thingy on the xbox one and also got a cheap copy of forza 6 for xbox one

Start of the month I got an Odroid Go and a rs 97 Pro - both of which are superb (after you install new firmware)

Hey this is my first post :)

I just bought the following:
1. Nintendo Switch
2. The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild (of course)
3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
3. Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze
4. Dragon Ball Fighterz

and I'm thinking on buying Crash Bandicoot Nsane Trilogy.

What do you think about these for a starter? :idea:

They have a few, the Lemmings one seems good
They are a bit like Amibos, without the DLC crap and without the people scalping them
I bought the lemmings one and crash bandicoot. they seem a bit unusual and cool. goes well with our half dozen or so pop vinyls, hoping to add mr bean to the collection soon

^^^ Going to have to look at how much the PSN version of that costs. Was going to buy an import PS4 copy since they canned it for the West (outside of the expensive special edition) but kinda don't want to be locked out of the updates/DLC. I know the game won't be anywhere near as good as KOFXIV but I'm an SNK fanboy so I gotta have it.

£20 on Switch

The last boss is one of those SNK bosses that seems to have endless combos that drain the life bar and end up with a super finish

YOu can only win a fight with one for some asinine reason

I bought a SNES and a bunch of games, first time I ever owned one. Games are mechwarrior, legend, Krusty fun house, super battleship, x caliber, Spider-Man and xmen, incredible hulk and desert fighter.

Also another Xbox because the BIN bundle had 22 games none of which were fifa!

I don't have a Switch so I checked the PS4 digital version and, well...it's £44.99 on the Playstation Store...

Think I will wait for a sale or a price drop! This is what will happen when games become digital-only.
