Picked up my copy of Crash Team Racing. Just got a few races in and yeah it's still as much fun as I remember. There's a reason it's in my top 3 for this genre with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Diddy Kong Racing.

Last game I got was Judgment. Love the Yakuza games, so I'm definitely going to enjoy this.

Just got back from the store with my copy of Judgment. Have today and tomorrow off from work so I'll be spending most that free time playing this.

Just ordered Akiba's Beat for roughly €17. I've heard about the Akiba games before but I remember the first one not being that great. However, after seeing this one at that price, I decided to look up some footage of the game. It honestly looks better than expected, it's kind of a mix between Persona social simulation and dungeon crawling with Tales of combat. Surprisingly enough, the game also features full English VOs and it's pretty lengthy to boot (roughly 40-50 hour game), so I decided to get it.

It's always fun to try out different JRPGs that could turn out to be hidden gems. Having played Digimon Story the last couple of days has reminded me of the fun in discovering underrated titles, so I feel more encouraged now to try out different games.

Ordered .hack//G.U. Last Recode for €20. Never played any games from this series and I thought it looked interesting enough to give it a try with this collection. Looking forward to playing it!

I just impulse bought Bloodstained, not in love with the look of it to be honest but the reviews have been hot so we’ll see. I did think it’d be sub £20, mind you.

I went to the shop to buy CTR but instead picked up Kingdom Hearts 3. I've only played bits of the previous games and never understood or cared for the overriding story but always liked the concept.

@kyleforrester87 I bought that a few days ago but I really like the look of it, some areas definitely look much better than others but I'm a sucker for the Castlevania look. I've played for 3 or 4 hours and its definitely one of the best games I've played this year.

@carlos82 sounds good - I do love the whole metroidvania thing (Axiom Verge is one of my favourite games) but I kinda got bored of Hollow Knight after initially enjoying it a lot. I’m not trusting my initial impressions of games recently lol

@kyleforrester87 yeah Hollow Knight isn't one I stuck with, this though reminds me of Symphony of the Night in so many ways and there's more than a few nods to it

@carlos82 looking forward to giving it a go. As for KH, it’s always a series I’ve liked the idea of too but I’ve not managed to clear any of the main instalments lol. They are fun enough but also very WTF?

@kyleforrester87 Yeah I like the look of Bloodstained too. Loved Axiom Verge as well, I do like a Metroidvania game now and again. Let us know how you get on!

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

Despite being here, there and everywhere the past three days, my partner and I managed to be near stable internet on Friday, just as Limited Run Games opened orders on their first couple of Star Wars retro releases. I managed to secure a copy of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (PS4) Premium Edition and subsequently squee'd like a little girl.

Tagging @KALofKRYPTON because you made me aware of this (thank you!) and @JamieO because of our exchange in his Crash Team Racing retro review. Did you bite?

@RogerRoger and @KALofKRYPTON Yes, mate, I well and truly took the limited release bait after their E3 2019 Showcase by not only ordering PS4 versions of Star Wars: Bounty Hunter and Freedom Planet from Limited Run Games, but I also ended up heading over to Strictly Limited Games to order PS4 The Ninja Saviors: Return of the Warriors.

I didn't try to buy region free Game Boy Star Wars from Limited Run, but I'm still interested in keeping my eye out for when The Empire Strikes Back gets a sealed card release, especially since the Game Boy is region free. Understandably, I will be taking a rest from buying limited release games for a little while now, though. On the other hand, I only went for the standard editions of each game.

I'm really pleased that you managed to find decent internet access to order the Premium Edition you wanted too, because when I saw your profile picture in the comments section for Crash Team Racing, I had a feeling that you would be looking forward to a physical PS4 copy of Bounty Hunter.
Nice one!

I am passionate about retro gaming, from antiquated consoles to the continuation of classics. Obviously I love PSone, and PS2 retro games. I blast my ears to breakneck melodic punk, gruff vocals and nimble alternative guitar hooks.

@JamieO Neato; glad you managed to get the copies you wanted! Although I've had a curious peek and there seems to be plenty of Bounty Hunter left, yet the classic NES and GameBoy cartridges (in both standard and premium) have all sold out. Must've been that gorgeous retro action figure packaging they dreamed up for it; as soon as I saw that, I knew certain types of fans would be all over them.

I'll post pictures as / when it arrives. And yes, as you say, I think it's a good idea to take a step back and let the wallet recharge a little... especially since there's promise of The Empire Strikes Back for you and Racer Revenge for me at some point.

@RogerRoger Mice one! Glad you snagged a copy - as I said, despite the general perception. LRG stuff is usually easy enough to get so long as you turn up on time!
The Bounty Hunter steelbook does look really nice.

@JamieO Let us know how Ninja Saviors is. I love Ninja Warriors on the Amiga and saw SLG advertising the new one on fb last week - but I'm a little skeptical about the game itself.

I finally used some of my birthday vouchers. I ended up getting some PSN credit, and I used it to get two things:

  • Battle Chef Brigade Deluxe - a game I've wanted to try for a while
  • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - a game I've been putting off for years

The first is something I've always liked the look of, and I've had it recommended to me by a friend. It's a strange mix of quick combat and match-three puzzling, contextualised by cooking, with a narrative and character focus on top. It sounds bizarre, but I'm definitely curious to try it out for myself.

As for The Witcher, well... I've seen it in sales on the PS Store so many times, and at significantly reduced prices too. Obviously, everyone loves the damn thing, and despite being intimidated by the size and scope of the game, I thought it was time I at least take it for a spin. Over the last few years, I've become less and less interested in huge, 100-hour adventures, so this will be the first one I've played in a while. I can't guarantee I'll finish it, but I'm interested to see what all the fuss is about.
