I've recently picked up Rock Band Unplugged, Dynasty Warriors Strike Force, God of War Chains of Olympus and Pursuit Force Extreme Justice for the PSP. All of which are excellent.
On the retro side my copy of Duck Tales for the Gameboy arrived (Japanese version). I now have all 13 of Capcoms Japanese Gameboy releases.
On the Megaman side I have picked up Megaman II (USA version) for the Gameboy which now completes my run of MM Gameboy games including cover and region variants.

The last thing I bought was the Evanescence track pack for Rock Band, this week i'll be getting the Point Lookout Fallout3 dlc for 360, Guitar Hero Greatest Hits for 360 and am also toying with the idea of Sam and Max, games TM have praised the series now for as long as I can remember but I have never played one myself, will I be missing out on anything if I go straight for the XBLA game?

sam and max is amazing tbh but unfortunately the xbox fails to provide what the pc does ( a mouse) so it feels rather clunky in movement compared to the pc version, plus they are both about the same price. if ya can find a pc copy id get that instead.

funny story actually. i bought it off my ex girlfriend (we were together when we were about 15) used to spend a lot of time playing soul calibur and others and it was a ripping good laugh. i just had to buy it though, not just for the price but because its the console i had my first kiss in front of. not everyday you get to buy back some memories like that.

some of these games will be the first time i have played them but cant do until my scart cable comes through the post. which hopefully will be very soon :D

Just picked up Garou Mark of the Wolves for the Xbox Live Arcade for 800 points. Cannot wait to get home tonight and start playing through this one not to mention take it online.
I've found myself flooded with fighting games at the minute. Garou this week, Blazblue next week, KOF XII a couple of weeks after that and MVC2 sometime this summer as well. All this while I'm still playing Battle Fantasia and Street Fighter 4 :mrgreen:
