Don't know if PSN+ games count, I got Don't Starve Console Edition for free.


I LOVE PS+. Best value you can get for $50 in gaming. The games you get, I don't generally count as part of my collection because I don't get to keep them indefinitely. Really the only digital games I count are the ones I buy on Steam. But, I don't really catalog them when compiling my lists.

But really, it's up to the person. If you want to count them that's fine by me. :lol:

Also, I really wan't The Wonderful 101.

January:

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 2 (Gamecube)
*NEW* F-Zero GP Legend (GBA)

I got this at an actual game store today. It's rare I find anything good offline, but this new store (will be posted in the Retro Game Store thread) has much potential. Plus, a decent price.

Got these two guys:

This very comfortable looking controller for the N64 that I'm helping will help me overcome the barrier that is the N64 controller for me:

A much needed Wii Classic Pro Controller:

And a subscription to the brand-new (U.S.) Retro Gaming Magazine:

I think I just missed out on the first issue, however.

Never have been a fan of that thing. It just has this cheap "3rd party" feel to it. 'Course I've also never had a single issue with the official controller outside of the stick wearing down.

The Hori N64 controller is another alternative that might be good, though you'll have to be really patient if you're hoping to get one for a reasonable price.

Back in the day, at first I hated being stuck with the 'cheap' controller when we'd play 4 person games at a friend's place. It grew on me though and I liked it better than the real controllers. The analog is a normal potentiometer with a metal stalk, so it's more durable.

I have one of those, and used it a lot back when the N64 was current as well. I liked it better than the standard controller for a lot of games, and it held up fine.

Just wanted to say that it already showed up today, a couple days later. And it immediately just felt right in my hands. I'm VERY happy with this purchase. The N64 controller has always felt very awkward and clumsy feeling to me, and I've REALLY tried to get used to it, too. So this should make things much more enjoyable for me.

And luckily the thumbstick was undamaged (that's always a concern for me when buying any N64 controllers).

Nabbed GTA V last week and have been playing it every chance I get. Was a little afraid of the character swapping before I bought it thinking that I could possibly miss out on a lot of side stories, but so far it's been great. Actually having a hard time deciding who is my favorite character each has a great back story and are unique in there own ways. The heists are also by far some of the coolest GTA missions I have ever played and the prep work building up to them is also entertaining. On top of the SP there is also GTA online which looks like a whole new campaign games definitely going to suck up alot of my time in the near future :).

Also picked up a new copy of Project Sylpheed for the 360. It was an exclusive which I have been meaning to play for a while and I couldn't pass it up at $9.50 shipped new from Amazon :).

Decided to hold onto Resident Evil 2 & 3 for the game cube :P. Was thinking about selling them but thought it would be nice to have Resident Evil 0-4 on the game cube.

I do have Atelier Iris 2 so that's kinda close I guess. :lol:

At PAX East last year I almost purchased this, as it shares a name with my wife... But they were asking too much for it:
