Frog courier in DotA 2. Everyone loves to make it hop around.

Probably FFX/FFX-2. Takes me back to my glory years of gaming. Also my favorite game ever.

Replayed FFX on the Vita. Still a really fun game to play through.

Did notice that FFX-3 seems highly likely considering the extra scene thrown in post credits. I don't really feel like Spira has any more stories to tell but perhaps it'll feature the same cast just somehow in a different world.

Mechanical keyboard. Never thought the difference would be so huge.

Xbox One with Kinect, Titanfall, COD:Ghost, and extra controller for $430....very satisfied with that purchase

Tales of Eternia for the PS1 (Known as Tales of Destiny II in the states). I'm so lucky to have found it at a local retro games store.

It has become my second favorite Tales game. (My favorite being Tales of the Abyss still)

The story is pretty good, and I like the characters. But what makes this game stand out is how unpredictable it can be. I really like the mini-games which most other Tales games don't have. (At least not as much as Tales of Eternia does.) The puzzles are fun too. The game is really well designed, I'm surprised it flew under the radar.

Now I just need to get Tales of Destiny and I'll have all the Tales of games that were localized. I really wish I knew how great these games were back when they were initially released. I wouldn't have to pay $70 - $80 for them! lol

I was late to the party and only picked up The Walking Dead Season 1 a couple of months ago. But damn dude...*chillbumps*

Divinity: Original Sin collectors edition. It's just that good.

My new computer desk (Ikea Galant) is also very amazing and a very close 2nd best purchase. Got it a few days ago and still haven't gotten over how much room I have on this thing.

Not a game, my SSD drive was my best purchase and Windows 8. Holy hell my PC boots up in under 20 seconds. Everything runs so fast and smooth games dont even bother loading anymore, parts of games were I no there are loading screens are basically not there anymore.

Why have I waited so long to go SSD

Definitely Original Sin. Except for The Witcher games, I was really going off the RPG genre but im looking forward to Wasteland and Pillars Of Eternity now.

For me it's my PS4. Got one brand new for $300 :). Been playing games like Battlefield 4 (best multiplayer of this year), Watch_Dogs, Destiny beta, MGS Ground Zeroes, and Injustice Ultimate Edition. Graphics and gameplay are great. You, SW?

may I ask how you got one for $300?

Dot hack quarantine for $80. I got it Monday. I'm extremely happy because that's pretty cheap for it.

Not... Much. As sad as that is.

@SolidGame_basic:

$300? You lucky dog. I would say my PC. I paid 1400, had a friend who knows way better than me, build it. I also got a new laptop that runs some of my games on steam better than my old dell did.

Titanfall, and MGS GZ were my favorite games I bought this year so far.

I'm super excited to get my 32GB card for my Vita tomorrow. Not terrible for $45.

Otherwise, Dark Souls 2 on PS3 for $13 and Gold Wireless Headsets for $55 were also awesome.

$45 isn't bad at all for the highway robbery Vita cards are usually.

Mario kart 8 is the only game released this year that I play regularly. I would like to get donkey kong tropical freeze but my gaming backlog is just too big.

Probably Xbone... Having just PS4 wasn't doing it for me. Plus I prefer Xbox's exclusives abit more.

yep better exclusives on the xbox one.
