What did you just Buy/Receive?



  • @neocweeny said in What did you just Buy/Receive?:

    @sheria €130 for Terranigma, €150 for Shining Force III.
    I've been wanting these games for a while, I'm glad I finally own them ^^

    I'm still looking for an English PAL Soul Blazer and Shining Force CD but these are even more difficult to find. Especially Soul Blazer, maybe I'll just get the NA version.

    Not bad!

    Soul Blazer is out of my price range really, I've had eyes on SFCD though.

    Yes, I like the sequels. I don't think they're as well made, but still. I think I'll probably throw out the cardboard slipcovers of all three movies. This is one of the rare instances where the slipcover is different from the jewel case. But I don't know why all movies come with slipcovers now. Just makes it more difficult to put the disc away without damaging the plastic. At least the jewel cases have a theme. The Matrix has a rabbit on it.



  • I like having old systems instead of just relying on emulators or praying something shows up on Virtual Console (which doesn't even exist anymore) but Nintendo systems have always been a blind spot in that regard. Finally picked up an N64 today. Never actually used one before but my first impression is that this controller is not ideal. Still though I'm excited to finally get around to all the games I've missed out on this thing.

    I'm putting together a book, and decided that trying to edit photos, layout, write text, and export from the chromebook I've been using for the last 2 years wasn't going to cut it.

  • Bought Life is Strange: Before the Storm Deluxe Edition, Burnout Paradise Remastered, Horizon Zero Dawn: The Frozen Wilds, Sonic Mania, and Homefront: The Revolution for like 40$. Add it to the backlog. Gonna go with Homefront first, have been waiting for a while for this game to drop hard in price, and it did (5$). I'm always a fan of the mediocre-scored FPS games, not much of these types nowadays (relatively compared to last gen).



  • My brother, apropos of nothing yesterday, gave me his copy of Kingdom Hearts 3. I asked him why he didn't want it and if something was wrong with the game but all he'd say about it was "It's okay." I don't think I've ever seen a stronger case of damning by faint praise, but I'll probably play it eventually. Considering I've only ever played one of the games to completion and bits and pieces of another I've got a lot of homework before I even touch 3.



  • Just ordered a 2TB SSD for my PS4, might order a 1tb for my PS3 later on



  • Pre-ordered Alien in 4K. Coming out late April. Walmart.com had it for only 14 dollars.



  • Got this tiny fella.

    Liked it the first time, but didn't find it great. I expect it will be better the second time. Can't believe it's already been ten years since I read it.



  • Went on a trip to Singapore, and i didn't even plan to pick this one up, but that time it's right in front of me, and I have the right amount of cash on me so I just caved in. Don't think I have the time to fully sink my teeth on it, but it will at least sit beautifully on my shelf.

  • AA Batteries for my Xbox One for Windows Controller. I can’t believe I have to do this in 2019. I bought the controller in November and the batteries are completely dead by April. By contrast, I have had the same batteries in my receiver remote since 2012.



  • @bam541 Oh dude I live in Singapore we could have met up!



  • @axel for real? Oh man, i missed out.



  • Thanks to V. I ordered set of William Blake's poems from Books a Million. They should arrive on Wednesday.



  • Harvest Moon: Back to Nature for the PS1 in CEX. and I picked up Halloween Remake from the local Paki shop for £8.00



  • More movies. Little Mermaid and E.T. were used. Perfect like new quality. I love how people just sell their movies after redeeming the codes.

    Shoah is a foreign ten hour documentary about the holocaust. Haven't seen it.



  • Trek Dual Sport 3

    This is what you call a hybrid bicycle. This might be news to you because until recently, this was news to me. I grew up riding a Gary Fischer mountain bike in the woods all day every day as a kid. Since outgrowing that bike, I've been living in a major city for 5 going on 6 years and have never quite enjoyed road biking nor the shape and feel of a road bike.

    This hybrid style bike is great because it has a flat handle bar, front suspension with a lockout for road riding, as well as a thicker tire and thicker frame for when I occasionally visit home and ride off road trails. It isn't as sturdy as a MTB but its pretty darn sturdy. First bike I've bought since maybe 2006.
