    Hmm. Might as well. Old people, you know the drill. New people, whatever gaming thing you buy or get as a gift this month - games, systems, accessories, Kickstarter projects, soundtracks, figurines, novelizations, etc - should be posted in this thread.

    Also, whoever wants to post these threads up and post the new releases for the month, then it is yours.

    Got both Sonic Generations and Mario & Sonic at the Olympics on 3DS thanks to a "Buy one, get one free" combo on a local store during the weekend.

    Sonic Gen is traditional Sonic platforming, and certainly one of the most enjoyable I've played in the series. M&S is certainly a good pick if you like mini-game compilations.

    A few XBox Live downloads:
    -Adventures of Rocaman [indie] (waste of money. I beat it in probably 20 minutes, if that.)
    -Curse of the Crescent Isle [indie] (has a Super Mario 2 vibe. I like it, and it's fun to solve the platforming puzzles. And some of the text dialog got me to LOL)
    -Extreme Skill [indie] (similar to The Impossible Game, where you keep running across a constantly scrolling background. Fun, but hard. And frustrating in that you have to start the level over every time)
    -Super Meat Boy (good game. Hella hard at times, though)

    Despite my post in the Vita thread, I caved and purchased it. Along with 'Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack.' I am having a lot of fun with the Vita, and the game so far. As my finances recover from car repairs, I look forward to purchasing more software.

    Brother picked up War For Cybertron not too long ago, looks fun might give it a spin someday. Yesterday he picked up Mass Effect 3 so any free time I have will be going there.

    I don't remember if I said I got Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning in the previous thread, but I'll mention it once more.

    Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning
    King of Fighters 13 (on the way)
    Eightarc Fusion Arcade Stick

    Planning to order BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extended some time next week.

    What did I get this month so far? Just a few old NES and Nintendo Gamecube games, not a lot. :p

    Arkanoid (NES) with Arkanoid Controller- Still getting the hang of that special Arkanoid Controller.
    Life Force (NES)- Pretty decent Gradius-like shooter from Konami. Known as Salamander in Japan.
    Midway Arcade Treasures 2 (GCN)- I've yet to play this on my Gamecube, haven't played any Gamecube games in months. I did enjoy the first Midway Arcade Treasures though.

    Thanks to a coupon in Best Buy's game magazine, I picked up "Rage: Anarchy Edition" for a whopping $5.

    It looked interesting when it came out, but never got around to getting it. I guess patience pays off.

    Picked up Yakuza today. Only had the chance to play about 20 minutes but I can already tell it's going to be awesome.

    ...The mispronunciations of the Japanese words sort of bug me though. :|

    I have Street Fighter X Tekken Special Edition (PS3) and Mass Effect 3 (Xbox 360) on the way even though I'm trading in about 9 games for them. Some of the games that're being traded in could turn a lot of heads too, so I'll just leave it at that.

    So far, I only purchased Stacking, a game from the fine people over at Double Fine. Speaking of Double Fine, I donated $30 to their Kickstarter. Speaking of kickstarter, I also pledge $30 to a Katawa Shoujo art book. Good thing since they were limiting the number of art books due to being overwhelmed at the fans of this game. Sometimes I just love the fan community.

    Tales of Graces F. Didn't have to pay anything. Well, thanks to my three trade-ins in GameStop.

    Been quite a while since I enjoyed a Tales game :).

    I'll be getting Kid Icarus: Uprising in several days and I also bought Sonic Triple Trouble and Pushmo off the 3DS eShop. I also picked my first Club Nintendo gift, a 3DS pouch shaped like Luigi's Hat which just got added for St. Patrick's Day.
