If you can't beat 'em - join 'em, I've bought:

Super Mario Galaxy - doesn't need a reason

Mass Effect - because I got caught into the hype like a fool

Metroid Prime: Corruption - because I liked the first 1 and wanted something for the Wii

Kororinpa - it was cheap

Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles - it had zombies in it and like resi games

(oh and a full set of MAME ROMs on DVD, but I won't list them individually)

Yaaay for list threads :P

Maybe. But if it wasn't made we wouldn't have had that simply amazing list on the previous page.

Rebuying for collection sounds like something only a mentalist would want to do :o

I've recently bough Mass Effect, Mario Galaxy and GH3 :P

Also Joyrex's forum ID should be changed to MISERYrex-19

Burnout Revenge (360)

- I'm not entirely sure why I waited so long to buy this, as I've owned my 360 for about a year now and I loved Burnout 3, but I think it had something to do with Moosegrinder whinging about vertical takedowns and traffic checking being shit. :P

It's a bit weird, but at least the enemy cars feel like proper opponents rather than cannon fodder who ram you by chance rather than by design, and the vertical takedowns tend to be amusing rather than frustratingly random. Hopefully I'll finish the game before Burnout Paradise, otherwise it'll probably join Burnout 3 on the pile of games that I attempted to finish before getting distracted by something newer.

I'm currently thinking about getting Lost Planet and Flatout UC, but really I need to finish Burnout Revenge and other stuff that I've got lying around like Ghost Recon.

Probably just me being a grump, but isn't this thread a bit shit.

You think so? Well, Tyagi has DJ Max Portable now, so as long as it's good, at least something will come of it :lol:

Seriously though, I just thought it would be interesting to have a thread like this, and I think so far it's going well.

I've had lots of deliveries this week:

Wii Play - £10 from this very forum.

Wii Zapper - £19.99. I love useless add ons. Yes I bought a 32x.

Wiimote & nunchuck - cheap import from Hong Kong.

Orange Box 360 - Bargain at twenty notes.

Kane & Lynch 360 - not for me, but a xmas pressie for my nephew. Only £20 as well.

CEX just sent me through a second copy of wii sports for some reason. I haven't been charged for it, so it'll go up on ebay to pay for the first one.

non gaming:

Leg Massager machine - £50 - xmas pressie for the missus. Saves me doing it.

Yoda lightsabre - at £25 it'd be rude not to, and my daughter will love it.

Well the PS3 I bought yesterday just arrived and I'm about to pop out to buy Uncharted: Drake's Fortune on the back of the recommendations here (And a review). Other than that nothing really. Well, I bought an optical splitter and optical cable for the PS3. I was in game and the PS3 own brand optical cable was £9.99 and the 360 one was £4.99. Amazing scenes.

I tell you what I haven't just bought. A DS for the mother-in-law, (on behalf of the father-in-law), because I have just learned that they're rarer than rocking horse shit at the mo. Glad I bought my wife's Xmas pressie DS last month.

No problem picking up a Wii if I wanted one though.

I wish I could have been a spoilt brat as a kid. :lol:

GHIII for the 360 and GT5: Prologue are my recent purchases.

Less than that now I think - check the bargains folder.

I bought a 360 at the weekend - in between houses while I wait for flat buying to complete and housemates were spending every waking minute playing Pro Evo and Tiger Woods 2005. It had to stop. PGR4 is tremendous fun, and today I've just picked up Dead Rising, again, after finding it hugely frustrating/enjoyable last time round. Any advice in tipping things more towards the latter appreciated!

My parents give me no money, I have to earn it all.

And if you think I'm spoilt, then you need to meet this guy I know. He's 17, yet his parents still give him £200 a month pocket money (for doing fuck all), and he gets £10 a day for his lunch!

Those games in bold easily adds up to £270, which is a ridiculous amount.

Well, 6 of the bolded ones are payment for some work I'm doing, so technically not for free.

And the reason I'm getting some games again is because when I first got my PS3 I had to sell my games to buy new ones. So now that I can afford it I'm rebuying all the ones I had to sell so I can have a large collection, as when I see people's huge collections I get jealous. :)
