I got Armored Core 4, Armored Core for Answer... and DmC Devil May cry (for 12 euros on PSN. The AC games were 3 euros each).

I must say i was impressed with DmC. Well, i had already played the demo si i knew it wasnt bad... but i was well impressed with the presentation and the cinematics. Its a shame that Ninja Theory's PR isnt as good as their game's developing. If they hadnt pissed off DmC fans maybe this game could've been a sucess. It sold one million+, wich is ok but wasnt as good as DMC4.

Actually, they should have advertised it as a side story/ alternative dimension versions of Devil Mayc cry. It would've been better that way. Reboot assumes the resource material is bad or worn out, when it fact it obviously wasnt.

Brought it cheap for Gradius Gaiden and Gradius IV. Ports of the Playstation 1 titles never released outside Japan originally.

I really enjoyed the Darksiders series. I hope they end up making a 3rd one, but I don't see that happening after the fall of THQ.

Vigil games was closed cause no one wanted to buy them cause they didnt have a game ready for release.
I think some nordic company ended up with the rights. Its sad, but the series is probably gone. I got it just to experience this game and what could've been.

Even if by some miracle someone made more of them, it would be from a completely different team. A bit like the situation with Amalur.

My new keyboard! I've been wanting to get a mechanical keyboard for awhile. A lot of people I've spoken to say that the cherry switches just feel better to use over the long haul and this one is a Cherry MX Brown variety. I'll get a keyboard with Blue switches for when I want to piss people off.

Yeah Nordic Games they go around pretty much IP hording but there a pretty budget outfit. You'll never see a Darksiders game with the budget of the originals.

Brought this for 3 mainly for Darius Gaiden (since the PS1 version is literally impossible to find) and Metal Black (previously only an arcade game)



I was sure the English release of this Japanese horror game had been cancelled. Never seen the game in PAL before. So I grabbed it straight away.

Sounds interesting. How was it, in general ?

Same here. For a 3DS game, the CE is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. I also picked-up Perfect Dark Zero: CE sealed on ebay for $12 w/free shipping.


I've also been on an Xbox buying kick here of late. Trying to complete my Xbox collection before it gets expensive. I only have around five or so games that I still want to get for the Xbox.


A couple of Sega games...


My Sega Xbox Collection. Some many awesome Sega games on the Xbox. It was like the Dreamcast 2.

I adore Gunvalkyrie. Once you're able to figure out the controllers it is a blast. I was to the point where I could get through an entire level without touching the ground. Most people bought a Xbox for Halo, I bought it for that game.
