I Just Bought...
 
I don't know if there's already been a thread like this, but basically in this thread you post what you've bought recently (picture or text), and people can comment on the buys or whatever and talk prices, etc. Who knows if it'll work and keep going with purchases, but I think it's a cool idea, just to see what people are into and all that. So I'll start. Today I bought for $40 which I then found out was used (I thought the one on the shelf was just an empty display box) and without a manual...

...oh well.

Karmillo 02-04-2006 09:35 PM

You bought Half life 2 used?

...Id keep your receipt if I were you cause if the guy who traded it in ever played it then youve got no hope of getting it on steam...
I'm suprised the store even took it in, when half life 2 came out over here there was signs all over the place stating that they wont accept trade ins of this game sue to steam

Spiwak 02-04-2006 09:45 PM

Well it's working fine. I don't know, maybe it was new but the absence of a manual is a little disconcerting. Maybe the guy at the counter just forgot to put it in the box or something while we were talking about World of Warcraft. I think I'll go over there and ask tomorrow.

Karmillo 02-04-2006 10:20 PM

Oh, HL2 doesnt come with a manual...well mine didnt atleast

Spiwak 02-04-2006 11:04 PM

That in itself is rather.....I dunno. I like the manuals :(

SamNMax 02-05-2006 12:07 AM

No real need for one since the game gives you a tutorial.

insane_cobra 02-05-2006 01:32 AM

It's a re-release, they usually don't come with manuals, even if original releases do. There's oughta be a PDF manual on the disc, though.

This was my last purchase:

It cost me $25. I don't have a PS2 yet, but I better stack myself with some games before I get one. Currently I have God of War and Freak Out for PS2 and Discworld Noir and Vib-Ribbon for PS1.

SamNMax 02-05-2006 01:42 AM

Some ****ed-up game cover art where you come from.

insane_cobra 02-05-2006 01:47 AM

:) Here's the American edition cover art:

Not much more subtle, I'm afraid.

squarejawhero 02-05-2006 02:02 AM

Nicer composition though. Bear in mind it's now "on the cheap" in the UK already...

I really wanna play this game, shame I can't and probably never will.

RLacey 02-05-2006 02:29 AM

My most recent game purchase would be

http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P...2.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

for £9.99. Of course, given the rate at which I acquire games, it probably won't be my most recent purchase by the end of the week.

squarejawhero 02-05-2006 02:45 AM

Where from? Ace price.

RLacey 02-05-2006 02:55 AM

Gamestation. They had a single copy in the Oxford branch, and it was one of those situations where I just decided to buy it instantly.

Kolzig 02-05-2006 03:00 AM

My latest game purchase:

I wonder if I ever have the hundreds of hours time that I need to play it. :D

I might buy the Cinemaware Marquee's release if they strip it of you-know-what.

KriD 02-05-2006 07:41 AM

I just bought this one:


http://x2.putfile.com/2/3509304284.jpg


Well, I pre-ordered it, anyway, because it isn`t released here in Europe until mid-February. (us lucky europeans :) )

About time, considering my almost two year long wait for this title. Well, I guess it`s worth it, it looks amazing :D

Karmillo 02-05-2006 08:22 AM

http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P...2.LZZZZZZZ.jpg
I bought this just to play Co-op with a friend but got sucked into the Single Player :D

The original OMF is a classic, I still play it sometimes. :)

Don't worry, there simply is no manual for HL2. They never made one.

That's why I won't be getting it, anytime soon at least. I'd want to, though, but I'm afraid it would be a bit of a waste of money, at least for a long time. I have games probably dating from over two years that I still haven't played :D

I don't like long games :P I don't like short games for that matter either (well, I like, I just don't... like...) Medium-length games. That's the way to go :)

MEe too, extremely Addictive. I could beat anyone at that game, I finished it so many time son hard, and the best robot is the Jaguar & The Katana (sp?). Love that game, pitty OMF BG is crappier. Someone should remake OMF 1 pre-rendered 3D and keep the 2D based gameplay. Or just make a decent sequel/remake.

Awesome, awesome game. Notice how the American cover has Kratos's swords stained with blood :P

Dasilva 02-05-2006 10:27 AM

I think the other cover looks better. :)

Thief Gold for $9.99

I forgot to say that Space Rangers cost me only £9.99. :)
So at least it wasn't that much money even if I *never play the game*. :D

Thanks - I might install it today just to see if it does work. I have an old laptop with Windows ME and I can get a lot of older games to work on it. :)

GED X-42 02-05-2006 01:42 PM

Just brought...

http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P...2.LZZZZZZZ.jpg

And its Ace :D

especially the children's book-esque manual

Though i've found that everyone who see me playing the game immediately says: "what the F**k"

Karmillo 02-05-2006 01:51 PM

thats out over here now? how much was it?

GED X-42 02-05-2006 01:58 PM

I came out in the UK on friday, it was about £35 in Virgin megastore but went up to £40 in some other shops.

Dasilva 02-05-2006 02:00 PM

Play.com offers £29.99 + Free Delivery

Karmillo 02-05-2006 02:07 PM

Full price huh? I always though it was one of thosequirky on and off fun games, is it worth the price?

GED X-42 02-05-2006 02:14 PM

Its great fun, though may be too weird for some people. :crazy:

I haven't played it that much, so i don't know whether it was worth full price.

But its definately one of those games that you say you'll have a quick go on for half an hour before a TV programme is on. And end up playing it for ages missing the TV programme all together.

MoriartyL 02-06-2006 01:00 AM

I just bought a large order of games. See, I very rarely get the chance to buy any games at all (since prices are obscene here), so when I do get an opportunity I make the most of it. I bought:

-Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, so far fun but not quite as good as its predecessor
-Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat, which is just brilliant
-Metroid 2: Return of Samus for the Game Boy, a true classic
-LEGO Star Wars, which I'm hoping will be fun in multiplayer
and then used copies which I can't get to work of:
-Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
-Luigi's Mansion
-Super Monkey Ball

squarejawhero 02-06-2006 03:37 AM

Metroid Pinball.

Freakin' addictive as hell!

Kolzig 02-06-2006 05:22 AM

I bought three gamecube games even though I don't have a Gamecube. All of them were on sale.

Well, let's call it "preparing for the Revolution™". :D

Lucien21 02-06-2006 05:26 AM

The last non adventure games I bought came with my 360

Call of Duty 2
Kameo
PGR 3
Perfect Dark Zero

Karmillo 02-06-2006 05:26 AM

I thought the revolutions backwards compatability was going to be through downloads?
