What was it? Whether it was a packet of chips, a video game, a CD, a magazine, a gun, a flower, a yacht or an island, post it here.

My most recent purchase was a CD - Dream Theater's "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence".

    The only ones i got are Sonic Adventure 1,2 and Cazy Taxi. I am going to get Nights and Jet Set Radio to try them out. Is Jet Set Radio good?
    Jet Set Radio HD is very good. The best version has always been the hard to find Japanese De La Jet Set Radio Dreamcast disc, but this one tops it, hands down. It's as well done as the HD version of Sonic CD in that it has all the music from all the regions (minus 2 songs, if I remember correctly). Although, in Jet Set Radio HD the songs from the European, American, and Japanese versions are all put in the playlist of the game and play during regular gameplay rather than having a region selector for the music like Sonic CD HD. All of the extra unlockable characters from De La Jet Set Radio are in there and the extra two levels of the American and European (and De La Jet Set Radio) release are there too. This is the best HD conversion I've played so far from Sega (there's also neat extras like a documentary of the game and a music player to play the songs outside of gameplay (although you have to unlock the songs during gameplay)). If you want info on the gameplay if you've never played it, Jet Set Radio is one of my favorite Dreamcast games of all time. It controls really nicely, and the conversion controls are just as tight as the original (there's no sluggishness or late response here, at least in the XBLA version). The level design is really well done, and it's just a blast to play. :)

    The only other HD Dreamcast re-release that I own that you don't is Space Channel 5 Part 2 (I skipped Sega Bass Fishing. I enjoyed it on the Dreamcast, but only because of the fishing reel. It wouldn't be as fun without it). Space Channel 5 Part 2 HD is really good too. It's got the extras of the Japanese Dreamcast version (the 100 dance dance-off and the unlockable costumes), and it looks really good in high definition. Of course, the genre of this one is really niche, and not everyone likes it, so I can understand if someone is put off by it (since it's really just QTE events set to music), but I like it a lot. The music is fantastic and the 60's inspired art style works well with the game.

    I want to pick up Sonic Adventure 2 and NiGHTS next (although NiGHTS is a Saturn HD re-release rather than Dreamcast). I'll probably get NiGHTS first, as I missed out on that on it's original release even though I did have a Saturn.
  • If there's one thing you can say about Sega, it's that its rereleases of non-Sonic stuff is usually pretty good.

    Last bought two of these:

    On Gamersgate. They have the same offer as Steam but I can pay in pounds. Saving enough money to make this one worth it.
  • A new razer mouse as my old shitty non branded ones keep dying, and Pre ordered Xcom, sigh 9 days to go.
  • It's National Taco Day in the U.S. So to be contrarian, I ordered fajitas.
  • Resident Evil 6 for PS3 and a Baked Potato
  • Resident Evil 6 for PS3 and a Baked Potato

    One of those will be satisfying and the other will be disappointing.

    Oh look what the mailman dragged in all the way from South-Corea! It's the 6th album by PSY including the megahit Gangnam Style.

    Unboxing video:
  • A DLC pack for the PS3 version of Disney Universe based on Phineas and Ferb, because it was on sale and I refuse to pay full price for DLC, no matter how much I may be interested in it.
  • Sonic Adventure 2 HD.
