I have just ordered Street Fighter alpha 3 max for PSP. Didn't realise they'd made it with all the GBA characters!
Content wise its probably the best version of Alpha 3 ever. As you point out it has every character including Eagle, Maki and Yun from the GBA version and it even includes Ingrid from Capcom Fighting Evolution (don't think she was in the GBA version?)
Plus it has even more modes - you get a brand new tag team styled mode which is really rad. Only issue is the d pad on the PSP, so if you can get the digital version and play it on a Vita for pretty much the best experience possible. I've put quite a bit of time on this version.
it does how ever not recconise the bigger memory cards for some reason but i'm looking forward to the new 30th anniversary collection it has my favourite ones in street fighter 1(I always liked the visuals of it even though it plays like cack) and the original street fighter 2
Yeah, its not perfect. You just have to fill the memory card up so its got X amount of space left, then it recognises the card as normal.

Thimbleweed Park on the Switch. Was intending to get the GOG version, but this was up on sale on the Nintendo store so thought lets go for it.

Got a lot of PC games for 75p each from local charity shop - Defcon, Age of Empire 3, Star Wars Empire War, Dungeon Keeper 2, Sins of a Solar Empire, Kingsdoms Annihilations (?) - wasn't intending to get back into PC gaming, but seemed worth getting these

Got Gurumin for £9.75. (Goes for more it seems on eBay). I was curious about this as it's a Falcom title (I am a new fan of the games).

Debating on whether to get Pursuit Force 2 or not.

Kuruputo for the DS for 99p - never heard of it before and for 99p it had to be worth a punt.
