    That's on my list, too!

    Never played it before either, it's supposed to be brilliant.

    I've only played the first 15 minutes and it really does grab you! Loving it so far. Speech selection controls are a bit funky though. Be warned!

    Sweet, just picked up a complete copy of PS1's Crash Bandicoot at Goodwill. Disc is in pretty good shape. Only $3.99 too. It goes for around $15+ on Amazon, for just the disc! Awesome. Never really played Crash as a kid.

    +1 to the backlog... lol

    I feel so old, I completed it years ago before the days of walkthrus and guides. There are some puzzles midway through that get very very very abstract and are exceedingly complicated because of that abstraction. But the script and story kept me hooked.

    Myself and my best friend had to rely on notes we made out self to get through it.

    Yeah one of my best friends was really into it. I didn't like playing big PC games at the time (since I was sharing it with my family). But even now on the PS4 version I find it better to play with people around helping each other out. Absolutely love the script :) "it's a squeaky little kitty"

    I didn't purchase, but I did some trading and got 6 more games:
    Xbox 360: Gears of War 2 & 3, and Prototype 2
    Wii U: ZombiU, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, and Pikmin 3

    My backlog is starting to pile up.. 32 games is what I think I'm at now. I was making good progress on it too. I was down to about 18 games in my backlog like a month ago, lol!

    I don't even have a WiiU yet, either.. I was hoping to clear out my backlog before purchasing one but maybe not now.

    That is correct. Speculation is that Nintendo isn't going to have a "Best Seller" reprints of Wii U games. It is available for download.

    Companies want you to download games - cheaper for them. If they make a disc, they're not going to make many anymore (see all the used Killzone and Halo games at Gamestop) as you can just download it or if you want a disc just buy one used.

    I have a couple of Vita games even though I don't have a Vita as I've seen physical copies of those dwindle as well (ie Wipeout - which Sony started giving away with a PSN+ account).

    There are already a bunch of 3DS games that are now really expensive.

    I've got a few XBOne and PS4 games used I've seen already creep up in used prices and haven't seen a new copy in a while.

    Where is the cheapest place to get an XB1 controller? Mine is in storage somewhere but found XB1.

    Used new wherever.

    It seems like the prices are pretty standard for new ones. For used I would check Gamestop. If you don't mind waiting maybe check Amazon.

    Redeemed my Club Nintendo Gold reward on The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Seasons for 3DS, and used up the last of my Club Nintendo coins on the original Metroid also on 3DS.

    Never played Oracle of Seasons but the reviews I read made it seem interesting. I haven't played the original Metroid in probably 15 or 20 years, lol.
