I've seen this type of thread on other forums and absolutely love going through and seeing people's new game purchases, so I thought I'd try it here on PC.

Basically, this thread is to show off your new games you buy, and discuss them with other members. Pics are welcome (and appreciated, images speak louder than words!), just make sure to resize them so they don't stretch the screen, and to remember the character/word limit is still in effect, so try not to just post a pic without anything else.

Feel free to post your own pickups, as well as discuss others' pickups.

So...just to give you an idea, I'll start.



I got my copy of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep from Amazon on release day (Tuesday) and the guide came in yesterday.

I plan on buying that game, just as soon as I can be bothered.
Newest game I got was Super Mario Galaxy 2, can't post a picture up but I picked it up from JB because I was walking past with money in my wallet and time to kill :D

Considering it was a downloadable game/content, I can't post a box art. :) But I just got this recently and loved it. Only problems I see are the zombies survive every, single attack and it just seems clunkier sometimes. :(

I want to get Super Mario Galaxy 2, but there are other games I'd like to play first. I played the demo kiosk that was set up at my local GameStop, and it was fantastic. Yoshi isn't nearly as much of a problem to control as I thought he would be.

As for my most recent purchase, here it is. LUNAR 2: Eternal Blue Complete, and complete it is. It still has Lucia's pendant and everything in it.


Pic is timetagged for authenticity.

The game itself is great, too. The animated cutscenes are really well done, and the story is actually good. The game has aged well, in my opinion.

Metroid Other M (New)
and Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones (Used) are my latest games and both are really underrated.

The game is kinda budget, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying a basic RPG game.

Went to the midnight release and got it. Played about two hours so far, and from what I can tell, it's really good.

I bought an XBOX 360Arcade on Saturday, I believe, after my old one RROD'd. Set me back 168 dollars, but meh. I also purchased Eternal Sonata, although I havn't had the chance to play it yet. Oh, and two copies of Birth By Sleep. One is for my brother, but I bought the limited edition for myself, even if it was horrible over priced. A 48 page artbook and two small art prints aren't worth the extra $40. Stupid EB Games. >_>

Since I'm in college I'm finding it hard to justify spending the money on it right now.

I just picked up Super Mario Galaxy 2 today.
Actually, mom bought it for me as a birthday gift.
I still haven't gotten the chance to play it, but as I do, I'll post some screenies.

I recently picked up Mafia II and Halo: Reach [First Day]
Both of them are brilliant.

Picked up Borderlands: Claptrap's New Robot Revolution last night, but still waiting to play it. No pic since it's DLC.

Well what can I say?
I've been on a spending spree recently.
Picked up Halo: Reach. Great game. Still has a few problems but it's early on. I still play it regularly so it can't be that bad.
Also picked up KH:BBS. Brilliant game but really goddamn hard.
Working through on my LV1CM Aqua file right now.
And Today, I brought Star Ocean 4 International. I owned SO4 on xbox but sold it.
I find the game alot more tolerable with the Japanese VA, and the classic artwork and menus are just beautiful in comparison to the CG models.
I also brought White Knight Chronicles. I really wasn't expecting much from the boxart, but it's definitely fun to play. My only real gripe is the fact that the VA doesn't sync up with what i'm seeing onscreen. But it's really fun to play. The bit i'm at currently is pretty hard though. Still gotta figure out how to get past it.

Edit: Might post pics tommorow if i cba'ed to get out my camera.

L4D2: The Sacrifice on both 360 and PC. It's ridiculous 360 owners had to wait an extra day then pay more than the game itself costs on Steam. >>
