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".

  • Rayman Origins, Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7, and Beyond Good and Evil HD.

  • And I got LA Noire for one dollar on Onlive. Because I figured that was a good a way as any to both test how well Onlive works and if I like LA Noire. I'm becoming a crafty consumer!

    I am quite impressed by this action.

  • It's less impressive when one sees how big my backlog is becoming. Already, I have enough games to last me for several years at least.

    You should see mine. I'm two gaming console generations behind on my games. Bordering on three once the Wii U comes out.

    I mean, I haven't even played the ORIGINAL Portal let alone Portal 2!

  • Did some shopping uptown and got very, very lucky finding pre-owned stuff:

    From Game:

    Rock Band Portable Drum Kit: £12.99
    (THIS! was exactly what I needed. I mostly wanted that portable pedal to replace the Guitar Hero one. Even better, is that it has no loose parts, a nice curly stretch cable, (but is long enough not to reall need it), and I can use them with Rockband if I need to! :D)

    Rock Band: The Beatles £4.99
    (I'm not really a fan of The Beatles, but its more songs for a cheap price! :D)
    Band Hero £4.99
    (My buddy has all the other Guitar Hero games, plus Its actually got a decent setlist. Its all pop, but its not all crappy like GH5's, great game for the microphone)

    From CEX:

    Rock Band £4.50
    (More songs! Plus I have the drums now)

    Rock Band 3: £15

    (OMG! This was a great find! This game is pretty hard to get a hold of, (there was only 1 copy in store), especially for that price! Got some great songs, plus, Rock Band eclipse Guitar Hero in DLC, so I've already got some DLC for it! :D)

    So overall spend on Guitar Hero/Rock Band stuff:

    Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Band Pack £42
    Rock Band Portable Drums Kit £13
    Rock Band £4.50
    Rock Band: The Beatles £5
    Band Hero £5
    Rock Band DLC: £10
    Thing Called Love
    Brutal Legend Pack
    Transmaniacon MC
    Stand Up and Shout
    Child in Time
    Gutar Hero DLC: £7
    Black Betty (Cover)
    Rocky Horror Pack (Sweet Transvestite, Hot Patootie, Time Warp)
    Detroit Rock City
    Tom Sawyer

    (NOTE: I got the Guitar Hero DLC first)

    OVERALL SPEND ON GH/RB STUFF: £86.50

    Man! Thats a lot!

    (Well not a huge amount considering 2 brand new games would cost around £60-70, and I have most of the instruments, but its still quite hefty. Great value though, would last me quite a long time. Especially if my buddy comes over, (as he has Guitar Hero: Metallica, Van Halen, 2, 3 and Greatest Hits on 360, (he might have 4 and 5 but I can't remember)))

  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/37892855@N00/6426231495/in/photostream Sam and Max Surfin' The Highway (both 1995 and 2008 editions); A 256 page graphic novel called Josh Howard Presents: Sasquatch, which I got straight from the viper comics website (deal's still going on) for 60 cents plus 8.35 shipping and handling, just use code VIPER70; and Sam and Max Freelance Police, The Complete Animated Series. Good deals all.

  • Humble Introversion Bundle. Again. That'll teach me not to offer up my extra games before the bundle is over.

  • Does paying attention count as a purchase?

  • Sure! Why not? It's better than getting free attention.
