What Have You Bought?

Recommended Posts

Bought myself a new phone. My old one was getting a bit slow and kept spazzing out (think there's something wrong with the screen getting false inputs).

Should arrive in two days!

Motorola One Action

Looks to be pretty good value for £220 (and I got it for £200 with a code)

Going to attempt to learn some C# and this book seems to be highly recommended for beginners.

Been reading Christopher Hitchens' god is not great. Such a great read.

Ordered these for when I'm finished with it:

Product-Image-Galaxy-Tab-S6-2.jpg

Time for a tablet upgrade as my iPad is starting to shows its age. Decided to switch over to a Samsung Galaxy Tab S6. I was very tempted by the iPad Pro but it was mainly for the drawing apps and while I am going to hopefully do a lot of drawing on this, it's not gonna be for anything that needs more professional software. I just want to use it to practise more than anything. Then things like being able to run emulators was another big draw as with its specs it should be able to run some of the more taxing games.

My Fiesta ST is borked, so I bought:

75392801_10162684047580341_8604557675742

I was looking for a standard one, but this one was in pretty good shape, so I went with it. It's got a decat exhaust and induction kit, so it's bloody loud. It's an incredible car though, so hopefully it'll last me a while.

This was one of the reachable dream cars of mine when I was at Uni - still think it's the best Type R - great choice!

It's a hell of a car. Not the most comfortable, but it drives like nothing else I've driven before.

I can see why it gets a lot of praise. I thought it would be good, but overhyped. Turns out the praise is justified.

After taking a break from buying Trading Cards I came back at it again after finding somewhere selling a card that I thought could improve my deck for cheaper than it had been in the past. So I bought this:

 

th?id=OIP.zwrTTWAlnWcyfLlVrRx2ywHaKU&pid=Api&P=0&w=300&h=300

 

In the card's first game in my deck it had a winning debut against a control deck after I somehow managed to get exactly the right basic lands to cast it. Then it proceeded to burn my opponent's health until I was able to attack for game.

 

I have also been investing in Yu-Gi-Oh cards recently. I bought a couple of booster packs from Chaos Impact and one of them contained exactly the rare I was after:

I couldn't find an English image of the card but it's a card called "Striker Dragon" which is a card that arguably should have been in the Structure Deck I bought in the first place. It makes the deck infinitely more playable by making it easier to set up the deck's main strategy which was a problem before this card existed.

 

I have also put orders in for other cards recently and just received these cards in the mail.

There is another order I am waiting on which is Yu-Gi-Oh related and that is for Guardragon Elpy, Guardragon Pisty and Galaxy Satellite Dragon.

Some new wheel centre caps for the Civic to replace the faded ones currently on it:

And some valve caps because what's the point of having a Type R if you don't display the badge on everything you can?

And finally, some Mighty Car Mods stickers. Probably won't use most of them, but it was cheaper to buy a pack than just the ones I wanted:

Finally after all these years the Showa Era Godzilla movies have a UK release! Can't wait to start watching this collection in HD. I just hope it doesn't take too long for them to release the rest of the movies.

I purchased some new amp software for my PC today.

It's called BIAS FX 2, Elite bundle.  Had a quick go on it tonight as I was working most of today.

I'm on a week off work starting tomorrow so going to have lots of fun playing with this app on my time off.

Nice one @Cube I reckon she's a keeper you know...

...and the girlfriend as well. ;)

Seriously though, that's an excellent idea and I hope you both have a good Switchmas. :D

Also... this means you'll be able to write reviews again for N-Europe, right? :smile:

(We'd love some reviews from you if that's something you'd like to do in the future if you have the time, so give us a shout if so)

Anyway, that aside... have yout got any Switch games lined up that you're wanting to play? I see you've already got Super Mario Odyssey, definitely a great starting point. :peace:
