Zelda Triforce Heroes for the 3DS.
Hugely underrated game I thought. The reviews I remember complained that it's 'impossible' to play solo but I went through it myself and had a blast with it...yeah, some parts are obviously geared more towards having other players to help.but it's still manageable alone if you put a bit of thought into how to approach certain puzzles.

Not bought (yet, but may be gifted to me anyway!)

PS2 Phat with 3rd party controller, horizontal stand with 4-way multi-tap, a power cable that has nothing to do with the console, and an AV cable that also has nothing to do with the console. And a purple Gameboy Advance with a Gameboy cartridge in the back of 'Tennis'

I may mod this ps2 seeing as I have a ton of them now (10 with this one!) and because modding them doesn't seem to difficult.

Thanks good to know, I bought it expecting to play it alone as a sort of puzzle game. I'm sure it's not ideal but as a Zelda fan I felt I ought to own it.

Bought Sekiro cheapish on the X1 from Ebay, received it today. One of my mates raves about it so might as well see what the fuss is about, plus I'm feeling up for a challenge.

Elidon (with the fairy) on the Commodore 64 after all these years wasn’t cheap. Loads of C16 and C64 from the Facebook forums.

And some cheap 3DS RPG in Argos as it had a cool cover

Halo Reach box set for £5 not sure why

I picked up a PlayStation 3 that can play good ol' PS2 Games Last Week for $64 AUD.
(They are rare in Australia.)
Back When I heard That PS3's thingo that plays PS2 games was removed to save money I decided to boycott Sony and thus went from a PS2 to an XBOX 360

I have tested the PS3 with a PS2 Game last week, my favorite game I reckon which is This is Football 2003.
I will now go and test one of the PS3 games that I bought / received last week.

Spent some birthday money on a couple of big additions this past week:

Fire Emblem Fates: Limited Edition
, cart only but still a good find at a decent price.

Skies of Arcadia Legends for the Gamecube, missing it's instructions but the price was fair, glad to have this back in my collection, it will be played aswell, not just gonna sit on my shelf looking pretty.

Grabbed a few random games last week - Castlevania Chronicle, SMB for the Famicom and Mario's Bombs Away. CV is a great game, played that and Mario through on Friday and was surprised by how great some of the bosses were - the werewolf especially. Bombs Away gets me slightly closer to a full G&W set, think I'm just over 10 left, with most of the remaining the priciest of the bunch.

My Hero One's Justice 2 on Switch. Enjoyed the first, hopefully this'll be more of the same.

Donloaded Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse for the 3DS in the eshop sale.

Never played a SMT game before, but this was cheap enough to give a go, not I'll get around to playing it any time soon, haha.

Final Fantasy XV Deluxe Edition- CeX had the steelbook on XBONE for £8 which looks lovely (Despite the slip needing a bit of a clean.) so nabbed it. Though at 50GB+ to install, its gonna have to wait till I finally get a External HDD for my XBONE.

Spent a small fortune on DS and 3DS pokemon games. Been hovering over the buy button for the scan plus AGA for the amiga but not sure if i really need that! Wanting to complete some sets with zx spectrum games bu noticing that ebay is starting to run dry with decent games for that computer, had to happen eventually i suppose.
