    Gaming things you regret buying...

    Ive had quite a few gaming mistakes over the years but I reckon the absolute worst was The Sega Menacer which I got for my 13th birthday. It came with 6 free games, one of which was a Toe Jam and Earl shooter in the vein in of Operation Wolf with tomatoes fr bullets, but the Menacer Gun didn’t calibrate that well and all the games were pretty poor. From memory, the only decent game that worked well with it was Terminator 2 The Arcade Game. I quickly got rid and flogged it to someone at school.

    Usborne Puzzle Adventures

    I absolutely loved these, escape from blood castle was my first and my favourite. I had one called Danger Cove (?) and one called Ghost in the Mirror which I enjoyed along with several of the Agent Arthur titles. I loved the detail that was put into the illustrations, you would often see comical expressions and/ extra characters which would take your attention and add to the immersive ness of the story. I seem to remember Usborne published a few titles aimed at older kids with more in depth stories and puzzles although I never had a copy personally.
  3. Just one carboot today and did alright, I got this little haul for £7.20. I was quite pleased with the gameboy as it came with batteries & in great condition, and finally getting settlers 7 which I have wanted for a few years now.

    Stuff you miss about gaming

    I loved Superkarts, it was one of the first games on my 486 PC that was on CD, it had from what I remember an amazing soundtrack and secret routes on the tracks which hid cash collectables. One of first PC 'big box' games along with Day of the Tentacle and Sam & Max.

    So this Clickteam game creator, is it designed for a complete novice to be able to get into? I was wondering how intuitive it was for a newbie as it states in the blurb you don't need to know how to program and you can make your first basic game in an hour? I may take a punt if it drops to £15 again.

    I've been hankering after the skyrim DLC and I've owned the vanilla version of skyrim since launch...can I buy the legendary version for £6.79 just to get the DLC to go with my existing copy/ save game or do I have to buy the DLC pack separately to go with my existing vanilla skyrim in my libary? I don't really want to pay more for the DLC separately if I can avoid it.

    Just Euro Truck Simulator 2 Gold for me so far, I don't tend to go for simulators and I wouldn't normally be tempted by a game that seems to focus on the joy of driving a HGV, but I'm so intrigued by the positive feedback I had to give it a shot at £3!

    Wii U

    Cheers for the link Final, I missed out on AC 4 at this price a few days ago from the game collection. After enjoying AC 3 for £4, I really wanted to pick up Black Flag as Ive heard its a return to form for the series, just ordered my copy.

    Wii U

    Assasins Creed 4 Black Flag is £17 at simply games: http://www.simplygames.com/info/19901/Assassins-Creed-IV-Black-Flag-Nintendo-Wii-U I was thinking about picking it up but was wondering how it compared to the 360 version? I have heard that the analogue controls don't work as well on the Wii U version, but then I also understand you can run it off tv play on the game pad? This would be a very handy feature for when my wife his watching her soaps.. Let me know your thoughts if you have this version or have played it on different platforms.

    I just picked up Gunpoint in the flashsale, any thoughts or opinions? I remember it was warmly received when released and the concept reminded me of Bonanza Bros on the Megadrive hich I always loved back in the day.

    Right just bought two brothers, there is too much praise in the thread to not pick it up!

    Anyone on here played/ have thoughts on Day of Defeat? I was wondering if it was worth a punt as it's so cheap, but appreciate it's now and old game and it looks like a Half Life Mod?
