Resident Evil 0, 1 and 4 for the Switch, along with Dragons Dogma for the Switch. Didn't originally intend to get every Capcom Switch game, it just sorta happened. Don't regret it though, a number of them really do play rather nicely in handheld mode, portable RE4 is a blast.

XBox has a massive Backwards Compatability sale this week....and I'm ashamed to admit how much I spend on it. :lol:

Still, can't argue with the likes of Midway Arcade Origins for £3.74, and many other games for next to nothing and all playable on XBONE......

Deep breath.

XBox 360

Destiny The Taken King- 99P
Halo 3 ODST- 99P
Halo 4- 99p
Dead Rising 2- 99p
You're in the Movie- 10p
The Last Remnant- 99p
Michael Jackson the Experience- 49p
Kinect Adventures- 10p
Disney Sing It- 49p
007 Quantum of Solace- 99p
Rise of Nightmares- 49p
Shaun White Snowboarding- 99p
Your Shape Fitness Evolved- 75p
Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012- 75p

PS3

Bioshock- 99p
Bioshock Infinite- 99p
WWE 2K14- 99P
Michael Jackson the Experience- 49p
Sleeping Dogs Limited Edition- 99p
Rage Anarchy Edition- 99p
Uncharted 2- 99p

And a Game branded Wii U Silcone Skin- 99p

So GAME seem to be getting rid of their last gen stuff the best they can, just about everything at the 99p or lower mark. Might be worth a look in your local GAME store.

PlayStation Mini classic thingy. £26 hard to argue. Not sure I'll ever play it. Might just keep it in the box :lol:

PS Classic
Dark Souls Trilogy
Fallout 76 (£3 off some bloke from the Facebook marketplace!) Morbid curiosity to see if it's as bad as reports suggest.

Haven't opened let alone played any of them yet...

I picked myself up an Action Replay for the N64 and a neon green GBA - which now gives me 4 normal GBAs in addition to 4 SPs - so that I still have a complete setup for true 4-player 4-Swords, Crystal Chronicles and Pokemon even when the internal batteries for the SP eventually die.

Celeste and Cuphead digital for the Switch, since they're both marginally cheaper than usual.

In terms of physical, I finally cracked on the PS Classic. $29, and it should be good for tinkering. I'm currently in the hunt for a MEGA CD and possibly a PC Engine Core.

I bought Cuphead again this time on the Switch.

I assumed I was rubbish at it on Xbox one because of Lag between wireless controllers?? But nope, Im still crap at it to point of throwing my switch. Then i removed the paddles thinking it was the screen that was too heavy and affecting gameplay?..Nope I'm still crap. Also used the leg that holds the screen up and seems I've snapped it off of a spring and won't go back on.

Since I travel a lot (for work), I've been thinking about grabbing the Mega Man collections on the Switch for a while now. However, I already have these on other consoles and apparently missed this sale! :evil: :evil: Oh well.

I just pre-ordered Bloodlines: Ritual of the Night for the Switch and grabbed the Castlevania collection on the PS4.

They're often in Sales on all 3 systems so I reckon you won't have to wait long before they're discounted again. Probably within a month, maybe shorter. :wink:
