How did you get them for $65?
SSX is $30 in their ad, Final Fantasy XIII-2 is $15 w/ the coupon in Best Buy's magazine Gamer (which you can purchase in the store and use the coupon(s) on the same transaction), and I had them price match Gamestop's weekly ad on Grand Theft Auto Complete for $20.

I think the one i bought is actually the French version (at least its written in french).

The one i had as a kid, was the japanese version with a megakey 2 i think!
Mine has the manual in French, but the game was in Japanese. Didn't know there was a translated version.
Because Spanish and French Dragonball fan phenomenon, the same reason we get Dragon Ball, Ranma SNES games, Saint Seiya PS2/PS3 games, Shin-Chan DS or so.
It always amazes me how big anime is in Spain and France.

Picked up Dark Souls, Dynasty Warriors 7: Xtreme Legends and Jak and Daxter: HD Collection for the PS3. Bought this lot thanks to the Amazon Buy 2, Get 1 Free deal they had going on.

Eight spot Docs, some Threadless gear (not all pictured), and season 5 of Dr Who. I also got four brand new Hankook Optimo tyres for free (fitted) from the dealer who sold me my new car last month. The ones that came with the car were munted, so they agreed to replace them with new ones.

I've been sitting on some movies...




I haven't had the chance to really watch them since...

..We FINALLY moved into our new house!



Yeah, it's been a VERY long wait since it's a new build. We bought everything...All Samsung appliances...



Including steam washer and dryer (not pictured).

Funature all from Urban Barn (main floor and bedroom)...



We are still unpacking, and I'm dead tired from moving, unpacking and assembling everything. I can't complain since it's our first house and we're off to a good start. I've fished wires, hung pictures and tv's. Setup the home network (I've scanned the area and I'm the only one with a wireless setup HAHA...

Sorry for the crappy pics, using my phone's camera

Stuff I picked up in March


Decided to re-buy the originals instead of the abomination that is the "HD" collection release



PS Vita Hori gamecard case, not the games


360 copy of the Mass Effect 2 LE



Figures out of the box, both swords were broken though, superglue is your friend unless it ends up on your skin


PS Vita Hori hard case



Surprised that there are still unopened copies of Fatal Frame out there and cheap too!



autograph & Greir sketch!



New Stuff as of 11 April


Picked up Twisted Metal for $39 this week via Best Buy's ad. Had to go to 4 different stores to find a copy of the LE though :/ Also was able to score a copy of the Xenoblade Gamestop exclusive artbook. Went to a Gamestop asked if they had any and the guy gave me one. I was shocked and for the first time can say that gamestop is pretty damn awesome!


Purchased the final two boxes of Fist of the North Star during a sale at Rightstuf


A nice new rosewood box to store my chess pieces



I couldn't resist picking up the R2 Xbox, I now have three xbox 360s though....


I'm addicted to these stupid Kid Icarus AR cards, enough so that I'll pick up crappy magazines!






imo the best tasting gummy bears out there



New Stuff 4/18/12


Cut back my comic collecting but still picked up a couple


The Bitcher 2 Dark Edition! Look who's a whoreson again!

Traded in my 03 WRX at 99k miles not a single issue since the day I purchased it except for a dead battery one morning. I kept it completely stock.



Picked up an Impreza 2.5i I am getting older and loving it. 87 Octane and satellite radio can’t complain.

Got these cool Phantom Hourglass figures this weekend.


I got some games as well but I have to wait until I get home to take some pics.

How are these ? cause I'm going thinking to buy those
I've got a pair (first year they were released so I don't know how much they have changed the design) but I can't say I was overly impressed. From a build quality standpoint they seemed fragile (ear pads falling off, bits of black on the headband chipping away), and believe me, I was extremely gentle on them. The sound was good but not $300 good. I would recommend looking in the headphone thread on GAF and looking for a set of cans that expensive and of better quality or spend less on the same sound quality.

Yeah I hear people say the sound quality isn't good but compared to the only two other noise cancelling headphones I've used in the past, the JVC HANC250 Noise Cancelling Headphones & the older Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones, I think they are superior. A lot of people don't like the bass in the Beats but I don't think it's overpowering. Imo the highs and the mids are also very good but I guess to each his own. Also imo the build quality is very good, I don't know if this was improved on or not but they are very sturdy, the ear cups are comfortable and don't seem like they would come loose and the hinges & screws are all very good. One thing I will say is that they do have quite a bit of sound leakage if that bothers you. Ultimately I guess you are paying for the 1) looks 2) name, you can find cheaper that prolly provide the same sound quality so you should look around if you are on a budget but I don't get all the hate the headphones get just because of the name.

Is that new FMA content? I love the cover.
It's basically deluxe editions of the FMA volumes, as they're presented in the same way they were in the Shounen GanGan tankobons - with color splash pages, but none of the cheap paper.

Each volume features new character artwork on the cover by Arakawa, as well as character sketches underneath the dust jacket.

...so basically, I'm collecting these versions (despite owning all in English and some issues in Japanese) for the artwork... :p
