This could be an interesting topic. Not meant as one that is some sort of show off thread, but rather a way to see the tastes and luck of other members. I think it would be interesting to see what kind of stuff we buy 'round these parts. Or at least, those of us who actually buy
I won't post what I paid for anything unless anybody specifically asks... again, trying to keep the money aspect out and the tastes aspect in.
So in the last two weeks, here's where my gaming dollar has been spent:
I bought a mint condition PSP1000, to have as a back up unit to my existing one. I love the PSP rather fervently and plan to play the system for years to come, given its massive library. Thus, I want to have spare parts or a spare unit in case my current breaks or is lost. I will buy at least one more PSP for this reason as well, given I want my gf to have one of her own for ad hoc sessions with me.
Aside from that, I bought a few Game Cube games, Sonic Adventure DX
, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle
, and Lost Kingdoms
(figured I'd get it since I have the sequel already). None of those games may be exceptional, but I consider the first two to be history pieces in a way, so I'd like to play them some day. There are scant few Game Cube games left I want but don't own, I plan to finish collecting for that library this year at any rate.
Lastly, I picked up Kingdom Under Fire: Heroes
for Xbox. Real time strategy isn't a big genre favorite for me, but this series seems to have a little extra gusto to it that I haven't seen in Dynasty Warriors
for example. If anything the titles were obviously ambitious, with impressive engines and graphics. So I think it was worth getting a copy of.
So that was the last two weeks for me. On average I buy about 2 games a week. Mostly for Wii this year, as I finally bought a Wii last Christmas. I generally only buy games which I can get incredible deals on. Unfortunately you have to bleed once in a while!
So what about you guys, what have you bought recently?
