And for how long do you intend to live by osmosis instead of eating foodstuffs? (Or did you win the lottery?)

A copy of Desert Strike for the MD - without the instruction manual and box is in a bit of bad shape, but just a couple of quid so will be happy as long as the cart works!

Yoshi's Crafted World for the Switch, looks good.

Treated myself to Tempest 4000 for PS4, and Gain Ground & Joe & Mac Returns for Switch.
Didn't realise there'd been an arcade follow-up to J&M and I'm a sucker for single-screen platformers.
Looking forward to getting stuck in later.

Let us know what you think about that Joe and Mac game (not in this thread), am interested to hear.

I bought Alex Kidd and Gain Ground on Switch.

Picked up three DS Lites from a local Facebook group.

Should keep me going.

Yoshis Crafted World.

It is beautiful to look at, and plays wonderfully. Another Nintendo home run.

My first Super Robot Wars game. Brought purely because my fav anime, Magic Knight Rayearth, is included in this game.

In-fact.....its the only anime I've seen out of the others features. :lol:

Yeah, it's good to be reminded that the Switch is a Nintendo console once in a while. :D

I've never really got on with the Yoshi games, not sure why but just found them a bit boring and simple. The look of this one is great though.

Being a sucker for early to mid 90s FMV games, I've bought The 7th Guest 25th Anniversary Edition on GOG.

Done a video review, too:
