What did you just Buy/Receive?

  • My most recent purchase is Horizon Zero Dawn. Only about 5 hours into it, but loving it so far. I'm particularly looking forward to the different types of machines and working out how to take them down. Most games give you a bunch of weapons for novelty value, but I then simply rely on the same one throughout. (Ratchet and Clank springs to mind). This does not feel like that at all and I'm already thinking about how to balance my upgrades over the different weapons.

    I desperately want a Switch but just cannot justify it at the moment (currently in the process of buying my first home, so it's low down on the list of "essentials" haha). Hopefully Nintendo will continue to support the Switch and produce many more quality games such as Zelda BOTW so by the time I do get one I'll have a host of games to work my way through!!

  • @FF7Cloud the Snorlax is usually $228 at EB Games Australia.

    i had already spent a crap tonne of money on the Switch console but i was "sigh fuck it. this things way too awesome to pass up when i have a chance to get it at 50% off"

    so i just bit the bullet and bought the beanbag anyway lol. now all my console and launch games are finally paid off i can start saving money properly again WOOOO!!! :D

  • bought a 2tb external hard drive for my ps4 i was getting tired to deleteing stuff

  • @FF7Cloud I'm also gonna need to upgrade my PS4 hard drive myself from a 1TB. Been saving gameplay from PvP Destiny that totals 42 Gigs, while the game & updates is another 55 gigs. And my digital library is only going to grow. As I no longer desire a room filled with video game cases.

    But I think I'll just wait till I get my hands on a PS4 Pro.

    Thanks Ben.

  • Just bought The Last Guardian on sale on PSN, I mean I can't not play the EZA GOTY! I need short games to play in between Zelda for the next 4 months.

  • Picked up the Metroid Prime trilogy, Super Mario Galaxy (1 & 2), and Pikmin. Never too late for the greats!

  • @Rynomite Oh wow if you haven't played any of these, you're in for a massive treat!!

  • @Axel It was a challenge getting past the Wii controls at first. But, after the initial awkwardness, I fell in love.

  • I bought the worlds 1-6 of Super Mario Run, for my Android phone. It's the first mobile game I buy since when I was a teen, I'm enjoying it so far.

  • Everything from the past two weeks or so.

    Just waiting for the gameplay reveal and beta. In the meantime, I'm playing the Age of Triumph update. Getting the digital version since it makes loading and switching games so much easier. And the deluxe edition to save money on the season pass as a day one buyer, who plans to pour hundreds on hours into D2 if its good.

  • Didn't buy it but won a steam code for Macbat 64 in a giveaway on The Gaming Ground.

  • @Musou-Tensei How many games have you managed to beat this year Musou.

  • @-Jak-
    5 games.

  • A year's Xbox Live subscription because I may have forgotten to cancel auto renew >.<

  • @thenerdtheword I had a bad experience with the auto renew crap on the Xbox 360. I brought the 3 month live subscription with my debit card, not knowing you had to call for cancellation. And when you did call, the representative will offer a deal thats hard to resist. So the promotion was pretty much a sales hook if you paid with your personal card, instead of Live points.

    But then you see how little you've played during the extended period you paid for. And make damn sure you cancel in advance, by not caring about whatever time you had left on the subscription. Your situation sounds like its a tough pill to swallow as its for the whole year.

  • i just bought pizza. :3

  • bought uncharted collection for 5 bucks at a salvation army

  • Buckled and picked up Breath of the Wild. Not sure how this is gonna end. Will definitely either sing its praises or complain endlessly in a few days either way.
