The Switch was on special at some places in Australia yesterday so thought it was time to finally grab one.

So your ps3, ps4, 360, xbone and PC all needed updates at the same time did they? :olol:

Suicide Guy (free as alternative to another to a giveaway that was too popular, this game costs more than the one they run out of keys for)

Sunset overdrive (day one edition) $5
Dead rising 3 (day one edition) $12

I was In JB buying some other stuff (will get to that in proper thread) and figured since they were cutting me a deal I'd grab them cheap as well.

The Wonderful 101 (Wii U)
Ever Oasis (3DS)
Tales of the Abyss (3DS)
Virtua Tennis 4 World Tour Edition (Vita)
Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood (DS)
Auto Modellista (PS2)
Singstar 80s (PS2)
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance 2 (Xbox)
Lemmings (PSP)
Sega Mega Drive Collection (PSP)
Project Sylpheed (360)
Test Drive Unlimited 2 (PS3)
EB $50 Box of Fun
Sega Master System Console Keyring x 2
SNES Game Box Shaped Cork Coasters

Thought about getting Auto Modellista for a while but the cheapest copy in box on ebay is $20. Went to Cash Converters yesterday and found it in a big pile of games for $2 in box.

I was going to get the $20 Box of Fun/Crap, searched for reviews of it and found this weird video where the guy got some pretty good stuff, so went for the $50 to see if I can get even better stuff. Hopefully they don't put in any t-shirts or socks.

I got some of them too. when I got the bunch of merchandise. I also grabbed 6 of the SNES cups for $2 each. :osmile:
I am concerned that after 2 drinks the coasters will fall apart so I'm not inclined to use them as much as the playstation ones I bought (They were $25 though so you'd hope they'd be good, which they are)
Wipeout coaster is at work, Gran turismo is on my desk at home that I can't reach. other 2 are still in the packet.

I got some of the coasters a couple of months ago but they are only $2 now, so got some more.

And The Wonderful 101 along with Tales From The Abyss & Ever Oasis were in the EB 1/2 price sale, which was good. 3 more ticked off my want list.

Pokken Tournament (Wii U)

Target in Australia are dumping most of their Wii U games for $5 each. Lots of people are getting Zelda, Mario Maker, Splatoon etc. for dirt cheap. Unfortunately my local Target only had 3 copies of Just Dance and 2 of Pokken Tournament. Still, Pokken for $5 is pretty good.

That's a sweet deal, I think Pokken Tournament is still pretty expensive in the UK. I almost got my hands on a super cheap copy of Lego City from "Toys We're Us", but when I got to the counter they couldn't find any. Grrrrr!

Apart from that I'm patiently waIting for Colour Splash to drop in price, it's still £30 at most places.

That sucks. I'm waiting for that one to go cheap too, although for the Switch.

Check out this dude's $5 haul:



Damn. Pity my Target is granny central, it doesn't have much of a games section.

2 gears of war 4 Xbox one pads and next day shipping for $95. One normal pad for $80-90 or 2 for $95 seemed ok

PlayStation 4 pro
Ps vr
Gran turismo sport
The last guardian
Wipeout (again)

While gt sport updated I took out of my room and the shed:
Saturn
Dreamcast
gamecube
Snes mini

I had time to set each one up and play:
An 80 lap race on three rings speedway on Daytona Saturn
A full run of crazy taxi arcade (and finish the crazy box) on GameCube
5 fights in arcade mode of soul calibur on Dreamcast
The first 5 levels of yoshis island on the snes mini.

I then had time to re box up each console, and put them all away.
And it made me think, what’s the fucking point of console gaming.

It used to have a point: disc or cartridge in, play game, enjoy.

It’s been about 8 hours now so I am sure something else will need a fucking update
