Was at the sales yesterday. Got Valkyria Chronicles, Prince of Persia and Sonic Unleashed all for the PS3.

Haven't had a chance to play Valkyria yet much, but it seems pretty cool.

Prince of Persia seems good too, but I've run into a couple of glitches, which is a bit annoying, I hope its not too buggy.

Finally, I spent 6 hours last night playing Sonic Unleashed. For some reason, I'm really enjoying it. The Werehog bits are actually alright, and the normal sections are awesome. Best Sonic game in years.

G25 Racing Wheel PC Wheel (Logitech)

This £200 wheel is the BOMB! Decided to spoil myself with this baby as I was getting a bit tired of my £20 one. This whell already makes me a better player at GRID: Race Driver. There are turns that you just couldn't do so well with a lesser wheel/ pad/ keyboard.

The way the thing reacts when you bash other cars. The gearstick is an awesome accessory too (although it feels a bit tacky compared to the super strong wheel and pedal).

So long as this thing lasts its 2 year warranty and beyond, it seems to be worth every penny so far.

A lot. They are a fairly expensive company to buy

Despite the fact this game has received some pretty mixed reviews, i thought i'd get the limited edition off amazon for only £12.30 - brand new. Quite a nice metal case.

There are about 4 things so far that i don't like about the game, such as: the confusing/fiddly controls, the voice acting at times, the vehicle sections and the fact that every episode/chapter is unlocked already. Usually you work through the game and unlock them one after the other.

Apart from that it seems alright.

I recently bought King's Bounty! for just 20 euros as they had it on a weekend special sale as a downloadable game.

Incase no one knew, the first King's Bounty game inspired the Heroes of Might and Magic series (gameplay wise). This latest installment is however not made by the original people but a license bought by some east european company. It is a pretty impressive effort so far. Not the most advanced 3d models or graphics but thats not what I am interested. The battles play a lot like HOM, however the way you traverse the world and the quest you take upon yourself is much different (its in real time and not turns). You have multiple ways of solving issues, like by violence or more co operative methods.

As a big HOM fan or fans of strategy turn based pc rpgs I recomend this game on the strongest . *some pictures*

Looks familiar?

Reminds me as I am doing something similar, I just got in the mail Silent Hill 2/Silent Hill 3 the last two days, then Chrono Trigger DS/Castlevania/Disgaea DS and Sega USB pad are also arriving soon in the mail!

Won't really have time to play all of these games at the same time but it feels good getting them for such a cheap price brand new or well used!!

I just bought the Strong Bad season from Telltale.

Other recent purchases include the first three Hitman games, and more games than I care to remember on Steam...

Already got all SH games but Homecoming, and have got CT for PS. Do want the DS version, though!

Why? Red Ninja always seemed like one of the most atrociously bad games ever made and I think you can't even play Sole Survivor anymore.

Being a big C&C fan all since the first game, and being very collector minded, I just had to have Sole Survivor as it is the only C&C game from the first decade that doesn't come with The First Decade.

And Red Ninja is a game I've played just a tiny bit, but it seemed interesting enough, even though I thought the controls weren't especially good.

Pretty fun game. Only thing is the camera is a bitch, jumping by flicking the wiimote up gets tiresome after about, say, 13 seconds and directing where he jumps when bouncing off buildings is a nightmare.

A game worth checking out though. the only Wii game I've been interested in since the console's launch.

Hey, that's a Dutch game (invented by students and sold to THQ). I'm surprised they didn't translate "de" to "the".
