General discussion / Latest purchases / Currently Playing?

Yep, just like in the TV and Movies section, post your recent video game purchases. I'll start with me.

I bought RE4 yesterday, and I bought Star Ocean III: Till the End of Time today. Both wonderful games.

I bought "Tales of Symphonia" a couple of weeks ago and I'm already selling it again. It wasn't as bad as I first thought but I don't feel like playing it again. I also bought "Soul Calibur II" and pre-ordered "God of War".

Ohh, great thread idea.

I went on a binge and bought Final Fantasy VI (mint boxed) & Final Fantasy VII. Yeah, VII. *hugs ePSXe, the best emulator ever made* I bought a Playsation game, now give me a cookie.

You think you're good? My last game was Unreal Tournament 2003. I bought it about two weeks after it came out... in 2003.

No, I have what I need. I never was that much of a gamer. Sure, I enjoy playing games from time to time, but it's not something I do every day. I play a quick round of UT probably once every two weeks or something.

I prefer reading books.

But I am, though. And my standards are very low at the moment.

Good thing I still have my SNES.

Yeah, I played Super Mario World for the last couple of days. Thatis a great game. I'm still trying to figure out how to get to Bowser in 11 steps. I know it involves Star Road somehow...

Last thing I got was my DS and Super Mario 64 DS, a couple of months ago.

I expect to be getting some new DS games soon though.

Holy sh*t, you own an actual cabinet? I have a modified Street Fighter II cabinet that I run arcade stuff in (MAME and my consoles). That's awesome you have a working MVS.

I just bought Kirby: Canvas Curse. Haven't played it yet, but looking forward to it.

I got quite lucky on that actually. A friend and I bought the 3 Slot MVS for $400 from a local arcade cabinet distributor. It had some button issues and the wiring was a little weird but we replaced both through some people in the online Neo Geo community and now we don't have to pay such high prices for some of the classic SNK/Neo Geo games (such as Metal Slug 1)
