Found a reasonably priced cart-only copy of Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology.

Was about to buy it digitally in the current sale but I decided to pick it up physically while I still can, to have the option to play it on any of my 3DS systems.

Finally ordered a replacement 360 controller as the drifts got worse and the rubber is nearly gone, went for a boxed licened non microsoft one, hopefully its unused or had little use so the stick will last a while, the brand new chinese made ones seemed to have a lot of reviews stating bad response which is no good for racing games.

Got a rebate so treated myself to a sack load as it's looking to be atleast another month before anythings done, Game were doing 360 for 99p too so I got:

Forza Horizon 4 (full price as its a new copy)
Dirt 4 (2 for 30)
Burnout Paradise (2 for 30)
Skyrim (360 99p)
Rage (360 99p)
Borderlands The Presequel (360 99p)
Call of Juarez (360 99p)
Sleeping Dogs (360 99p)
Painkiller Hell and Damnation Collectors edition (360 99p - looked like a rough 2nd hand copy, turned out just a knackered box, the game was still in its cellophane)

I had tried to get Deadspace as well but sadly the disc had been ditched already, tried my luck in CEX but no joy for it or TDU2 with most stuff still a bit pricey and rather dog eared, I'll probably find myself around Town more in the coming week so I'll keep looking.

They're not so much new purchases but I found an old VIC-20 and a C64C - complete with 1541 - while cleaning out my father-in-law's garage. They both power on UK, but are missing a few cables and could use a bit of TLC.

Got a PS3 from Gumtree for £35. Comes with about 8 games, two official controllers and one third party wired controller which looks a bit naff but actually holds really nicely.

Capcom purchases this past week or so:
Eldorado's Gate chapters 1-7 (Dreamcast episodic RPG)
Resident Evil 2 (Gamecom... for the collection).

Also, unrelated to Capcom, I grabbed Yakuza 3, 4 and 5 on the PS4 as the games were surprise announced this week for English releases. 3 is out now, 4 and 5 are out in a few months time. Not played much of the new localisation of 3 yet, but what I've seen is way better than the PS3 version.

On the console anyway. If you wanna buy games for either in the future, you have to buy games or add to your balance via the website. Top up cards/codes should be fine as well.

Arcade 1up Street Fighter 2 machine, it is awesome, love it. I will probably upgrade the joysticks at some point to SANWA ones but it is a great bit of kit.

Wow, didn't know about this. Have they un-censored Y3 this time? I seem to remember the PS3 having a lot of edits made to it.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
