    I bought the twin-pack DVD set of the live-action Gantz films I've wanted for a little while. It randomly turned up in my local HMV today.

    Thanks once again to @bakum4tsu for recommending them. :D

    Got a copy of The Stones Roses - The Stone Roses [Vinyl] on Friday. Been away to the coast where I ended up going into Cob Records in Porthmadog, seen that shop plenty of times going down this way and I've never been in there so I popped in and picked it up as it was pretty cheap and I didn't want to blow too much money a week before RSD 2017!

    Now that I have more funds it's time for me to start getting a few things, and what better way to start it all off by trying to get as many games as possible for the PlayStation 3! The console's life cycle is slowly going away and there's still a ton of games I would like to own. Some of the games I initially planned for the console have been shifted for the PS4 versions (examples include Caladrius Blaze, Resident Evil: Revelations, Sleeping Dogs, and Under Night Re:Birth EXE). But the ones below have taken the first stage of Operation PS3 Collecting.

    Stage 1 contains the following:


    Catherine - Amazon US: $16.80
    Atlus' puzzle game following a guy trying to wake up from a dream involving a deadly pit of doom and men in sheep suits trying to climb to the heavens. This is also the game that essentially was a demo for Persona 5's engine, but overall Atlus put a lot of effort into it that I've been meaning to pick up a physical copy for years.


    Killer is Dead - Amazon UK: £19.99
    One of the Suda51 games and the latest retail version in his care, Killer Is Dead intrigued me ever since it was first revealed and despite the mixed reception I still want to pick it up. The version I acquired is the Limited Edition version which probably isn't much.


    Shadows of the Damned - Amazon UK: £13.74
    Another one of the Suda51 games, this time involving hell and a gun that speaks (and also makes boner jokes). Like Killer is Dead, SotD is also another game that I wanted to try out and never did so the price point was about right. The US copies are also out of print which is a reason to get it sooner than later.


    Under Defeat HD: Deluxe Edition - Amazon UK: £14.55
    An updated remaster/remake of the Dreamcast shoot em up, I actually finished this game on the Xbox 360 via renting from LoveFilm and it's one of the few games that I wanted to own a retail copy for. The original plan was to import the Japanese release but I decided to stick with the UK version because it was cheaper and also includes the OST which is a neat bonus.


    Zone of the Enders: HD Collection - Amazon US: $14.93
    Like Metal Gear Solid HD Collection, I also own Zone of the Enders on the Xbox 360. However High Voltage Software, the devs who brought the game to PS3 & Xbox 360, fucked up the release. Both games may look gorgeous in high definition but the rest is a mixed reception. The reason why I'm double dipping is because the PS3 version actually received patches to fix the issue, well only The 2nd Runner got the fix but it's no big deal since it's the better sequel. The patch makes the game run in 60fps which is neat. If Konami does try for once, I hope they decide to bring the first game onto PS2 on PS4 like Naughty Dog are doing with Jak & Daxter (which also suffered issues with the HD Collection).

    Drakengard 3 nearly made the cut had there been stock for the item >_<

    Evangelion 3.33 from HMV
    And God Eater from AUS

    So I own the long awaited 3.33 and they only go and replace Misatos signature "lots of fanservice "with "lots of extra goodies".
