Velocity 2x, £7. I played this to death when I first got my ps4 but never got round to buying the physical. Go nice with the vinyl soundtrack.
Axiom verge £6
Fallout 4 and mirrors edge for £4 a piece. I love this time in a generation, some serious bargains to be found.

^ Yes I got heaps at the end of the 360 XBOX Generation bargains, some were even $1 each!
I remember I made a video showing some of the bargains I got at the time.

Later today I am going to buy digitally on the XBOX One Duke Nukem 3D for under $3 because it is on sale as I have XBOX Gold!!!
I had the Demo of it as a Kid and played the demo over 1500 times!

BBC Micro model B for £102 including shipping. I've arranged to send the internal PSU to someone who can recap it for me and have an SD interface lined up for software. The system has the Elite key strip which is handy as the original Beeb version of Elite is one of the games I'm itching to play along with Repton.

Really excited about this one!

A Short Hike, as the girlfriend has the same name as the protagonist. It turns out my missus loves it more than me - she loves just wondering round the island, talking to people and then gliding admiring the views :)

Gone full retro and bought a Tomytronic 3D thundering turbos off eBay for £30. The ones that look like binoculars. In good condition and works great. Never had one as a kid but always wanted one. I can't wipe the grin off my face. 😃

I like Thundering Turbos, it's simple but effective, one of the best of the 3D Tomytronic games.

Used to have the Sky Attack one as a kid and recall being very addicted to it! Still annoyed that I sold it for pennies on ebay back when Tomytronics were worthless but hindsight is a wonderful (and useless!) thing.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Just had a look at this, and it looks good! Shame that it's PC and Switch only though.

Sweet LearnedRobb you are the 2nd person I've seen on forums to say that it is awesome!
I should buy it soon hopefully!
