    During my brisk 10 min walk into town and back, I walked past CEX...
    ..... and came out with 2 games I've not played

    Had it been a PC copy of Borderlands, I would have tried playing with you.

    I had forgotten that Gran Turismo 6 was ever released; my last game in that series was Gran Turismo 4.

    Cool man. I never had a PS3, I've been to tempted to buy one, I missed out on a lot of games for that system. I remember buying the original Gran Tourismo....when the PS1 was powered by steam! :)

    Oh hell yes, you da man! Since it looks like you like driving games you'll be the guy to ask. Do you remember a game called Rage Racer for the PS1? I think it was an offshoot of Ridge Racer. You worked your way up to obtain the Devil car (I think that's what it was called) that was just insane. I can't recall meeting any one that remembers the game!

    NB - when we moved house - I seriously looked at those(and alot of video game stuff) and thought 'I may never use them again, I should bin them...." But didn't.

    Yes.



    Its fair to say that - if Blockbuster rented it - I would have a 'backup' -in case anything bad happened to Blockbuster.........

    I seriously can't find either of my PS1s (chipped and unchipped). Maybe they're in the attic ?

    Time to dig out a usb-cdrom drive and the emulators ! And get the wheel out.

    For completeness, I needed to get GT-6 before GT sport.......

    Borderlands was fairly popular, but I fell out of buying/renting games when I moved to a town 10 miles from the nearest game/rental shop.

    That video made me smile. There was a point when I suddenly went "I remember this track, there's a tunnel round this corner"....and then there it was! Cool.

    Man, I remember purchasing the original Borderlands when it first came out, and now it's an "old game"? jeez.

    I'll go back to playing OG Doom on my MS-DOS emulator now...

    If you can find people to play Borderlands with, the fun is escalated 10 fold. (not that I played 1, only 2)

    I used to work for a TV company that had Doom on it's computer network. The boss would keep catching half the staff playing multi player battles during the day! They never deleted it though for some reason.

    Gran Turismo 6

    WooHoo ! The irritation from earlier GT games where you had to leave a race, leave the competition get to the start screen, go to the correct manufacturer THEN modify you car, and then make your way back to the race is gone !!
    You can mod your car with generic upgrades between races Hurrah !

    I like this game - its just like the older GT games, but with nice visuals.

    (though the generic 'bonk' sound for any and all impacts is still there).

    An employee at GAME was talking to me about how he loves old games, much like the one I was buying for my console which according to him was one of "those old systems"...

    Alien Isolation (2014) for my fecking 360. Those guys are such snobs.

    When you're not very tall, the horizon isn't far away.

    Kids think anything just beyond their what they know/ have experienced is ancient history/doesn't exist.
