What Have You Bought?

Recommended Posts

Yeah was going to say, it's really not obvious at all. :p

 

I didn't even notice the Sean Connery thing was supposed to be talking about that until Cube mentioned it.

 

Anyway, I bought extra copies of Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider for $14. You can find more deals here including a 66% slash on Rayman Legends, currently selling for $14.

You can also grab Crysis and Dead Space 2 for $6.79 each--assuming your prices match my store's region.

There is just over an hour left but yeah, Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite are on sale for £4.99. Rayman Legends is £8.49.

 

I myself picked up X-COM: Enemy Within (DLC) for £4.99. Never seen it that cheap anywhere before. The best I've seen was the physical copy in GAME once for £10 but I've never seen it that low online, let alone at the new price.

I got gunpoint for £3.49, but since I already own Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite on Xbox 360 and now PS3 thanks to PS+, I didn't think I needed them again :p

£8 off ebay, now to see if the demo was as good a representation for the whole game or not. But at that price I can't go wrong.

I hated the demo but liked the game. The demo put me off so much that I only picked it up by chance when it went below £10.

Argos seem to have Australian PAL games. Their Skyward Sword box is the Oz one too.

Images are displaying upside down? Deciphering wit on a forum can be difficult.

They are the right way up for me.

I'd be very appreciative if someone could help me out with my problem: there's another Steam sale going on for Rockstar Games, but due to me living in the Middle East the only title I can purchase from that weekend sale is Midnight Club 2. I wish to purchase GTA 4: Complete Edition (I think it'll cost 4.50 GBP or so), but I can't. From one gamer to another, would anyone please gift me a copy? In return, I'll give any of these keys:

 

Far Cry 3 (Origin only)

Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY Edition

Batman: Arkham Origins DLC

Mortal Kombat Kollection

F.E.A.R.

F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin

F.E.A.R. 3

Scribblenauts Unlimited

The Lord of the Rings: War in the North

The Lord of the Rings Online: Steely Dawn Starter Pack

Guardians of Middle-earth

Guardians of Middle-earth: Smaug's Treasure DLC

Gotham City Impostors: Professional Kit

It's shit like this that makes me understand piracy.

Just bought three pairs of Beats headphones for a total of £13 in a Chinese market. Of course they're fakes, but pretty damn good for what I paid, and they sound great!

 

Plus some fake Ray Bans for my brother for £6, to stop him stealing my real ones!

In my experience, pics taken with certain brands of phones and then viewed with certain brands of system can read exif data that 'rights' an image, whilst others can't.

 

(Yeah, they were upside down, them actually being Australian really put a dampener on Moogle's joke :heh:)

My Retrode arrived along with the GB/GBC/GBA plugin.

Basically it lets you plug in Mega Drive and SNES games on your computer (or anything you can plug it into really) and play the cart straight from an emulator.

 

You can also backup the ROM and save file so I can grab some of my old saves like so:

It also supports saving directly to your original cart if you play directly.

 

Sadly it was too late for my Crystal save. :'(

 

The device even has posts to plug in Mega Drive or SNES controllers which is pretty neat!

 

Was debating getting a SNES of some kind but ideally I figure'd I'd either want a US or Japanese Famicom, but this is region free and plays Mega Drive games (as well as the hand held games thanks to the plugin). So now might start building my SNES/Super Famicom collection.

To be honest, I think I'm the complete opposite to you. While it does feel better to play, I just don't seem to care about the story or characters. I guess FFXIII just isn't my type of series.

Will arrive in two weeks, but that's enough time to beat the game at least once without help :)

A holiday. 2 weeks in Fuerteventura so I can just chill out and have some time to just relax and not think about the troubles of the world!

 

I go on Saturday and cannot wait!

So err.. starting today McDonalds and Nintendo are teaming up and the free toys with happy meal for the next 4 weeks are Super Mario related.

 

Seeing as I'm 27 going on 8 years old, it was imperative I collect these, so today on my work lunch break I got my first Happy Meal in fuck knows how long...

 

And I paid £1 to buy the 2nd toy for this week.

 

I'll be going to McDonalds each Wednesday for the next 3 weeks to complete the set...

Me too! Well I will be doing that.

 

I have a cool anecdote actually. The last toys they did were cool LEGO cups for the movie. I went a few times to buy the cups (different branches have different cups in this area) and got my two least favourite ones. I really wanted the Emmet one but alas no luck.

 

Last Wednesday me and some pals went to the casino(s). After the second one (£50 up each) (we go communal), we stopped off at McDonalds for a drink (I had a Fruitizz) and we asked at the Drive Thru which character the cup was (I was like "Please Emmet, please Emmet" she replied "Emmet" and I screamed, "YES YES YES I'LL TAKE IT! ONE CUP PLEASE!"

 

 

 

Lolz.
