Games I Have Bought This Year
I did try and keep tack on a monthly basis but about halfway through the year forgot to.
Crackdown - £12
Dead Rising - £13
The Impossible Game - 80MSP
Forza Motorsport 3 - £16
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga - £25
Lips: Party Hits - £25
Pokémon: Heart Gold - £30
Pokémon: Soul Silver - £30
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - £26
Halo 3 - £4
Rest of the year:
Red Dead Redemption - £30
DiRT 2 - £17
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - £17
Fallout: New Vegas £? present from missus
Scott Pilgrim vs The World - XBLA 400MSP
Toy Story 3 - £30 (for daughter)
Wall-E - £10 (for daughter)
Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare - 1200MSP
'Splosion Man - 400MSP
Sims 3 - £25
£310(ish) on retail games plus 2080MSP on XBLA along with 2400MSP on Forza 3 and BF:BC2 VIP memberships makes about 4480MSP total about £34 roughly. All told about £340 on gaming this year, quite cheap really, will be a lot less next year as I have quite a backlog of games I haven't finished plus new daughter arriving will mean less time and money for gaming. I will try and get a new 360s+kinect though.
Been a while.....
Since last made a blog post.
Apart from the usual work shizzle we have found out that we are expecting our second daughter, on the 20 week scan there was a definite lack of sausage so YAY! even more grey hair than I have already. The better half and I have decided on a name which makes it easier for our daughter to picture a person in there. Our son on the other hand being only 20 months old doesn't really give a monkeys.
On the gaming front I've mainly been playing DiRT2. While it is a very accomplised driving game I feel that it tries to vary the genres too much and doesn't really excel at any of them. I bought it without reading any reviews and was drawn to the Colin McRae name expecting quite a bit of rally. but instead got half wits like Dave Mirra and Travis Pastrana, last I heard they were still playing with their little BMX's. Still I completed the game fairly quickly (by completed I mean I finished 1st in every race) so could move onto Star Wars: The Force Unleashed which I imagine will stay in my 360 till christmas.
