@Knuckles-Fajita Ah, cool. Might be pushing it to expect my local to have an N64 in the window, but still could give 'em a try, I guess. Glad you found a good one!

@RogerRoger You can go on the CEX website and see if they have stock in a local store. You put your post code/Town in and the nearest stores that has stock will list. Used to do it with PS4 games all the time.

@RogerRoger No worries! It is surprisingly reliable too. I think I've only been let down once if my memory serves me right. But that was a new game and was proving tricky to get hold of in my local store.

CEX can be remarkably good.

So lately I've picked up some more stuff. Yes, more.

Horizon Zero Dawn, which I look forward to playing assuming the lack of CVD modes doesn't bite me.
Spyro the Dragon, boxed. Just for my shelf, my first game ever after all.
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, ahead of the remake.

And then I went online. Oh boy.

Mega Man II (GameBoy)
Super Mario Land
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins
Pokemon Colosseum (My other copy doesn't work)
Simpson's Hit and Run (Gamecube) - Because YES
Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex (Gamecube)

A lot of stuff just on Gamecube, I want to build that library up since my PS2 copies are definitely not prime anymore.

And I have 6 more things coming in the mail...

Mega Man: Dr Wily's Revenge (GameBoy)
Mega Man III (Game Boy)
Mega Man Battle Network 3
Metroid Fusion
Pokemon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire
Mario Party 5

If it's not obvious, right now I'm focusing on filling gaps in my favourite franchises, so Metroid, Mega Man, Pokemon, Spyro, Crash...

And my next long term goal is to properly fill out my GBA and Gamecube libraries. A lot of games I missed in my time.

@Knuckles-Fajita Another mention of The Simpsons Hit & Run around here! Awesome!

***

As for me, I've just returned to PS3 in another fit of "What if Sony shut this down tomorrow?!" panic and purchased the digital versions of Deus Ex (PS2 Classic) and Deux Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Edition. My best friend recently started playing Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on current hardware and said that I'd probably really like it. That specific game, along with inFamous: Second Son, will be around for a while longer but I wanted to grab the back-catalogue whilst I still (easily) could.

@RogerRoger I got Hit and Run since my PS2 copy is dying. Much like my copies of the Crash and Spyro games. That's nearly 20 years of constant use for you!

@Tasuki Hit n Run is peak licensed games honestly. Nowadays...eesh.

But it's friendly...ish...GTA. I love it for that.

Feels real good to play too.

@Tasuki @Knuckles-Fajita Yeah, I was about to come here and say "it's my favourite GTA game".

Whilst I will usually be kind to many an average licenced game, there's no need to be generous to Hit & Run. It's a solid, funny and incredibly playable experience with fan service packed into every pixel.

Catchy music, too.

@Tasuki At the very least, they could release it for PS2 Classic consideration. I think any further effort and they'd want something original (and microtransactionable).

@RogerRoger @Tasuki It really depends if Disney wanted to lease it out. We already know they won't do it themselves.

Maybe THQNordic?

I don't know what it is about Hit and Run myself, but that game was just so good. I'm looking forward to a replay in this ever growing backlog...

Tasuki

@RogerRoger @Knuckles-Fajita Well given the fact that the original games rights are now owned by Activision and the Simpson's license is Disney that dashed our hopes for a remaster as Activision will want microtransactions but Disney won't especially after the trouble they had with EA and Battlefront II.

If anything though they could do one like the Spyro remaster.

Just ordered Crackdown 3 for €20. I was hoping for this game to receive a heavy price cut eventually since 1) It's an Xbox One game and 2) nobody bought it, lol. But I've personally always had a soft spot for the Crackdown series ever since having played and thoroughly enjoyed Crackdown 2 on the 360. So I'm looking forward into delving into a decent open world game again on Xbox One (with Sunset Overdrive being the last one I played through and really liked).

@KratosMD I got Sunset Overdrive on Steam a while ago. Still haven't opened it, because of course I havent, it's Steam.

Oh, all the games from my last order arrived. One GBA game was alone in a huge envelope for some reason. All good quality, yet to try any of them, but since July and August, until the 30th, are quite months, I shall enjoy some GameBoy and GBA goodness.

And maybe even get some friends round for Drunk Mario Party 5 because that sounds like a good idea.

@Knuckles-Fajita Sunset Overdrive is a really good game. It's basically an open world Ratchet & Clank game with lots of different weapons to choose from. I really enjoyed my time with it.


I also bought yesterday PixelJunk Monsters 2 Deluxe Edition on Switch as it was on sale. I have the first PJM on Vita but I didn't like it since the game felt too difficult. However, after playing the demo it seems that they've introduced difficulty levels so that the game isn't too hard to play, which made me more interested. Moreover, the Deluxe Edition also contains a DLC pack with a Danganronpa theme, which really surprised me. I didn't expect a collaboration between these two series. So I had to buy it for those two reasons. Looking forward to giving it a go later today!

I impulse bought South Park: The Stick of Truth on Switch. I am terrible at turn based games but darn I love South Park and what I have seen so far has been fun.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 (for Switch, naturally). Looking forward to it.

@Knuckles-Fajita, I think I have that Gex game, for some reason (I don't know how I ever even got it, as I almost exclusively played on N64 back in the day, because the PS1 was my dad's & he ever only played sports games on it).

Anyhow, I tried playing through it not too long ago, but I think I stopped during an Egyptian Pyramid world because I couldn't figure out what to do next, I believe. It's worth a play session or two just for the laughs the cheesy 90's edginess provide, IMO. An "evil" Santa's Workshop (an odd choice for an opening world), a busty human love interest who shows a lot of cleavage (and who's actually depicted by a real actress via FMV sequences), and other stuff like that.
