Picked up 'Alien Isolation ' used from GAME their sale bin for about £5.50 for the 360, got it home and it was pretty scratched up, also wouldn't install on the hard drive binned it as remember a dodgy scratched 007 game ruining my PS 3 laser - I might add, I suspected that myself as it was spinning a bit and nothing wrong with console beofre that. So, thought, I quite like the 360 and still use it best not risk it. Picked up from GAME as Well 'Bioshock 2' for about £3.50, in better condition and am enjoying that so far. Really want to pick the 'Bioshock Collection' when I've got time to pick up a PS 4. Played the 'Infinite' game a while ago on the PS 3 and loved that. Holding off getting a XBox One until the new one comes out and see what that brings.
yeah my old ps3 slim drive was screwed after using an old black ops game

More games, cheap ones as well

The plastic crappy trophy's have removable stickers, competition prizes..........
I quite enjoyed Star Trek Shattered Universe. It's shallow as anything, and there's not much variety to the game play, but it feels very authentically Star Trek. Plus, it has George Takei. Who doesn't like George Takei?

Elite Dangerous - I have no idea what I'm doing! I picked up my first mission to buy some stuff for someone, but I'll be buggered if I can work out what gets sold where. I miss proper game manuals :(
It's tough, isn't it?!

I'd been waiting years for the PS4 release and it was the first game I'd pre-ordered in a long time; haven't had much time to play it this week so I've just done the first four training mission - must have had to check online for help about 6 times already. Took me ages to work out how to come out of supercruise and even longer to work out how to collect mined materials.

That said, and with all the difficulties the game is infamous for, I have a good feeling that I'm going to love it.

Pick up and play is fine its fairly simplistic, don't think it has multiplayer though.

Treated myself to Baten Kaitos for the Gamecube, and a Wavebird controller. :D
That is a damn good treat. :)

Grabbed the PS4 Crash Bandicoot collection this week. I'd been looking forward to it for ages and it doesn't disappoint. It feels like a nice solid collection of 3D platformers, tons of replayability as well, I can see me playing the game quite a bit.
Also grabbed the Zelda BOTW DLC for the Switch since I'm currently playing through the game, and some of the items/quests will be really useful for me. The Korok mask has already proved to be incredibly useful.

Spent a few hours last night trying to get some pirate kills for the Assellus community mission. Every time I got some licks in, the space cops would swoop in and take the kill! Every. Time. :x

But I'm really having fun, and at least it was good to zip around a planet's rings. Serious Star Wars vibes from doing that
