I found Tombi 2 in my local Gamestation and promptly bought it for £20. Which is a bargain apparently.

Started playing it this morning. Takes me back to my childhood :D

i got dynasty warriors 6 empires, much better than standard dynasty watrriors 6 :yes:
they changed a few characters so they were closer to what they used to be but still different enough to be interesting to try out :)

and then i decided to buy samurai warriors 2 and dynasty warriors 5 empires

You should all download Nexuiz and join in the animated, open source violence.

Oh. And join the Steam group and play TF2 with me!

Just as I reach Lvl30 I hear that Blizzard are reducing the lock for mounts from lvl30 to 20, as well as reducing the price. This annoys me. Expecially as I've had to sell shitloads of old loot in order to afford the bastard riding training. :x

On the plus side, epic mounts are copming down to Lvl40, so only 10 to go :yes:

Just finished Fallout 3 and I was having such fun until the end :| I'd have hoped that it would have let us finish up a few quests in the wasteland due to the sandbox nature of the game but it just ends right there and there was still a lot I hadn't done. Great game, but the ending is an iron cockslap.

^ Broken Steel DLC fixes that.

I've finished Another Code R. Time for more Skies of Arcadia.

Is that a Livearcade thing?

Uhh.. possibly?

I don't have an Xbox, so I'm not sure. I know the DLC is out for Xbox as well as PC though. PS3 owners have to wait a while.

You can get the first two expansions (Broken Steel and The Pitt) for £15 from most places that sell games. But it would be cheaper to get it on XBLA, and you can't get Point Lookout in shops.

Damnit.
So that would be Op:A and The Pitt? The first two anyway...

I dunno. It feels like they ended a game crappily just so they can have my beautiful money.

Oh wait.
