Hmm, I've bought PS3, 23" HD TV, HDMI cable, Resistance, Tekken DR.

 

I'm going to buy Super stardust HD and MK2. NGS if lucky.

EDIT:

BTW did anyone download MK2? I wonder if they improved graphics...


Very nice tv, congratulations. MK2 is an exact copy of the original arcade version but with online play. Definitely my favorite old game re-release so far on the PSN. Also, if you like old space shooters and want to kill lots of time trying to boost your score you will love Stardust.



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

oh and KBer81, calling all cars is the best PSN game(stardust HD kicks ass too though). and mk2 looks like mk2, no real updates but still fun online.

 Hmm, I was counting for higher resolution... anyway it's only 2,99... Hmm, I think I will get all three games



I went a little nuts this month, heh. Too bad I couldn't afford to do this every month.

PS3:
Playstation 3 Console
Extra controller
HDMI Cable
Resistance: Fall of Man
Nucleus (PSN)

Xbox 360:
The Darkness

Nintendo DS:
Children of Mana

NES:
Robocop
Cobra Triangle
California Games
Blades of Steel
Duck Hunt
Ninja Gaiden II (replacement cart, label was torn)

SNES:
Donkey Kong Country 2

and a TG16 console

That's about it for me for this month. Gotta start saving for August ;)



Dynasty Warriors Fighters: DS



Boycotting the following:

1. Yoshi: He ate my car and spit out a toaster.

2. Igglybuff: Totally false advertisement. You can have as many as you like they don't buff nothing.

3. the Terms Hardcore/Softcore... We're talking Video Games. Not Porn.

4. The term Casual as relates to Gamers: We make them sound like outsider's that happen to play games.  If that were the case they'd own a PS3.

5. Donuts.... Beacause I drink Beer...... and the biggest fan of Donuts hates Beer.

6. Boycotts: Their so lame.

So far... Rainbow Six Vegas (PS3) (trading in today)
PoP:RS (Wii)
BBA:WD (Wii)
Heatseeker (Wii)
Planet Puzzle League (DS) (or was that July?)
Wii Play (Wii) (Yes I know I was a little late.)
Enchanted Arms (PS3) (Sucks, and the gay character insulted my gay neighbor, seriously, I am not being derogatory. I promised him that I would return it, and I did.)
Darkness (PS3)(was that this month, I bought it day 3?)
SMB on VC (My Wii was away, the Wii Shop wasn't working I bought it the first day I got it back)
I will be buying Alien Syndrome (Wii), Nascar (Wii), and Strikers (Wii). Maybe Bugs if I feel like blowing more of my hard earned $8 an hour.



I would cite regulation, but I know you will simply ignore it.

This game is the reason I consider Blue Dragon the first real next gen JRPG game... I completely shut this out of my memory...
