So you paid $500+ for a game?

I bought it for $69. 20 years ago.
in 1998 I was 11, and convincing my parents to get me the cheaper PlayStation with it's cheaper games was a lot easier than the about to die Saturn and I knew that Sega was about to have something MUCH better coming up.. And they did, It was called the Dreamcast.

I spent $500 getting a dreamcast when I was 13 and had access to the savings from my dollarmites account for the first time...
That $500 has probably been my best investment in my entire life.. My DC is still going strong more than half of my life later. :owink:

This $500+ investment, is just me as an adult going back to play the games I missed... 1998 was a VERY important year for gaming... Half-Life, Banjo, Resident evil 2, Grim Fandango and Spyro just off the top of my head...

But unlike EVERY OTHER FUCKING GAME FROM 1998, Saga has NEVER been re-released, and probably never will be...
so a few hundred to play and preserve a game that would otherwise be forgotten is ok. :owink:

Or do you object to that? and would rather have 500+ copies of Fifa name a year? :rolleyes:

Let’s Go Eevee with Poke Ball. My son talked me into it despite my dislike of Pokémon games. So far it’s pretty fun to play together, though the two player mode is basically cheat mode since every battle ends up being 2 against one.

Just Cause 4 Gold Edition (PS4) though I just checked & for some reason the one they gave me isnt the steelbook one shown on Game's website & looks more like this box that Amazon have not sure whats going on there but I'l be goin back tomorrow (or some point this week at least) to find out I think

I'll add this as an edit rather than a new bit
Well I got the steelbook part at least, turns out its kept seperate from the game for some reason, even the girl serving didnt understand why, no sign of the neon pack though & she couldnt find any even after asking a colleague, seemed to think maybe it was online only or they hadnt had the codes yet. If you're getting it from Game make sure they get the steelbook as well as the box with the game in folks

New Nintendo 3DS xl with charger
Luigi’s mansion 2
Smash brothers
Monster hunter ultimate 4
Pokémon x
R4 cart with 8gb card full or normal ds games.
$115.

I don’t particularly like the system.. it weighs almost as much as the switch, and is top heavy.
I don’t think I’ll be keeping this one for very long. It’s slightly too big for a pocket but the battery life is amazing.

Playing some key games and will probably just stick to switch.. tbh probably gonna get rid of gaming pc too.
