Thought we could use a nice thread like this. A nice thread filled with pics/info and gaming pride.

Everyone post up your latest purchases/pick ups/findings! Take pics! Hopefully we can have a new thread ever month filled with goodies. :)

Here's what I got today:

Nov. 21, 2006. Today NeoGAF member Ace R. and I went to Best Buy and Fry's here in San Diego... did a little bit of shopping here's what I ended up getting today.


Since I ended up getting both a PLAYSTATION 3 and a Wii over the weekend, I thought I might as well upgrade my internet connection. I had an old 1998 cable modem that wasn't cutting it anymore. It is now replaced with this Linksys one. $69.99.


Also since Wii and PS3 supported WiFi out the box, I had to take advantage of it. $49.99


My newest BRD movie, only $14.99 at Fry's.


Ahh yes. I've been waiting for this one. $9.99. Victorious Boxers 2: Fighting Spirit. Based on the Japanese Ippo All-Stars game.


I've been meaning to get Phoenix Wright for a looong time now... but what sold me today was the fact that Fry's had the sequel for $39.99... so I was like hell, might as well. $29.99 for Phoenix Wright btw.

That's my mini shopping spree for today.

$40 for PW2? You got thoroughly ripped off.

That`s the japanese version, which has best deal status here in Japan. The game is on sale for 2900 yen.

$40 ain't bad... I may have paid a few bucks more... but I didn't have to wait for shipping or pay for shipping either...

i dont have the pictures now but this month i bought xbox 360 along with gears of war and ps3 along with with R:FOM and RR7.

truth to be told. i am not playing ps3 as much as xbox 360.

ps3 is a good system though [ and very sexy ]. but xbox 360 is just a winner this year for Gears of war alone.

i have been dying to download motorstorm on ps3 but with 512kps dsl connection @ home and sometimes it gets d/c, there is no way in hell i will be able to download it " does the ps3 download resume downloading if it got d/c or not yet ?"

You gotta tell me how Kingdon of Heaven looks on bluray in Hi-def. As well, is it the theatrical release or the director's cut? I just picked up the director's cut and it is fan-****ing-tastic.

A Playstation 3 (still in the slow as hell custom office of this damned country)

Ridge Racer 7 (the same)

And that is, PS3 is expensive enough to hurt my money assignment for videogames and I don´t have limitless credit as D(iamond VISA)charlie ;)

are you joking? it kicks so much ass that it's yet another reason why the PSP rocks!

I don't get to play all the games as much as i like, but when work winds down i definitely will.

I'm hoarding nuts for winter (when i get fired) or something...

you seem to have too much money DCharlie.

I think it's time you used some of it for the community, and by community I mean me. Should you feel the urge to ask for my paypal address I shall oblige.

Well, $15 is a lot of money when you think about it. And shipping from Play Asia on registered mail is free from them as well. You`d have to wait, but you would`ve had time to play the first game while you wait!

On topic, I have bought quite a bit this month, but I have to wait until I get home to post more photos and such...

He'd still have to import it. Add on the shipping and the peace of mind of having the game in his hand without potential for sabotage, and I'd say $40 is a fair price to pay.

edit: it seems my post is redundant on second viewing of the thread.

I'm wondering the same. Do you review games for a living? And/or Is gaming your full time job? If not, how do you find time to truly enjoy all of that entertainment? I have problems finding time to get a good session of RR7 in during the week. :(

But seriously, is it possible to enjoy all that? And if so, how do ya do it?!


BTW, I picked up a PS3, and RR7. That's about all.

DCharlie and wife are avid avid gamers but don't work in the industry.

They simply dump all their spare change into gaming.

Where the average american might be all... oh lets get a big gas guzzling bitch of a car, DCharlie and Wife are all like; oh lets get those arcade cabinets!

Oh, I wasn't talking about the money aspect. I'm just wondering where they find the time to really enjoy all of those titles.

Mine isn't as interesting as you guys seeing as we've yet to have our next gen launches over here (Wii in two weeks!).







And in two days:

x2

I actually have another 5 DS games I want to buy on import. However I don't have the cash at the moment. Far too many good games coming out.

Also, Lumines II and EBA. I think that's all I picked up this month. I'll be buying more in December once I go home for break and have my consoles again.

I actually bought quite a few more games than this, but I figured this was the most noteworthy... well, when it comes to wandering into the realm of self-parody, at least. :p

I suggest to anyone who likes Action/Beat'em Up games to buy this. It's only $30 and worth every penny....if you can find it.

Doesn't that make you part of the problem :(


Just Gitaroo Man for PSP this month.
And Vice City for PC cause it was cheap.
I guess it does. :( But I didn't buy the advance pack!! That's got to count for something. :p I made the mistake of downloading the trial, after that, I was hooked.

I'll put up some pics tonight of the Bravia in action. All I can say is 1080p is no joke. Especially for my eyes since I upgraded from a 1995 20 inch Magnavox I won in a bowling tournament:lol . Hey it treated me good over the years but there was no way in hell I was hookin up the PS3 to that thing

But nice pick ups everyone :)
