I too picked that up a few days ago along with Retro volume 3. Was tempted to pick up some dupes and wait for them to start selling for insane prices on ebay :twisted:
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Just got a wireless x rocker gaming chair, must say it's well comfy and does a great job of making you feel like your sat in an outrun cab with the speakers in the seat

I bought Lost at Sea a while ago and really liked it, quite a sweet little book.

Cannot go wrong with Scott Pilgrim.

I got yesterday my first Blu-Ray film - Close Encounters Of The Third Kind - 30th Anniversary edition (£10 from Saisnsburys) - pretty excited about watching this film, vaguely remember it but from what I can it seemed pretty good. Have bought Dad a few Blu-Ray films over the past couple of years and this is my first official one of my own :D

Nintendo DS Game Traveller Case with Sonic on the front (£6 - good old Sainsbury's again!) this for when I take my DS to work, have got a sturdy official Nintendo one for at home, but weighs a tonne and have got a limited edition 'Mortal Kombat' one, but am reluctant to open it - I know, I know!

A couple of weeks ago, got a DS Game Broken Sword: The Directors Cut - £13.00, HMV, which is a good game. Formula one game, official 2009 for the PSP - £10.00 from HMV am yet to open to try it, looks good.

Maplin's yesterday - £15.00 for a Electronic Precision Tools kit screw drivers and a Philips head one for £1.00, which looks like it will be pretty handy to have. This is for when I replace my laptop keyboard and hopefully tackle some upgrades too.

3 for £10.00 books at HMV, I got Ben Elton; Popcorn, The Profession of Violence; The Rise and Fall of The Kray Twins and Tobias Wolff; Old School.

From Asda, got my Nephew, who is 9 and AC/DC T-shirt bargain for a £5.00, me some black canvass pump shoes - £6.00 and Pixar: Short Films Collection - £5.00.

Now, before the weeks out have got to pick up two new pairs of glasses and a pair of sunglasses and buy a new mobile as my Samsung has give up after 3 years, as I've got my eye on a Black Berry Pearl, which are around £200 for pay as you go, my 360 save up will be gone.

And, somewhere on that list has been a couple bejewelled themed games for my Mum and couple of Toy Story T-shirts for newphews and Adidas training tops for one of them!

I was finally allowed (by the missus) to buy a replacement watch with the insurance money from the burglary. I was surprised the card had any money left on it at all, tbh :lol:

Ooh, very nice watch indeed. :D

I posted these images in the wrong forum I suspect (what games/consoles have you bought), so probably best they go here instead.
