Post your non-classical music (book, magazine, garden tool, sex aid, etc.) purchases in this thread.


So, any purchases? Okay...

When I'm fully capable of walking unhindered again (maybe two weeks?) these will be on my feet -

I'll go ahead and post this as these will definitely be purchases when they're released on March 3rd:



+ the strategy guide (hardcover edition) -



I'm a huge Zelda fan from all the way back to the 8-bit Nintendo days. This new installment in the series promises to the be the most massively scaled Zelda game yet. Upon looking at previews of the map alone, I'm in complete awe.

Special note: Nintendo has a new console coming out called Switch, but I honestly don't think it's doing anything new other than a bit better graphics, but The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are virtually the same in regards to content on both the Wii U and the Switch, so I don't feel any need to upgrade my current system.

I think that's the game that Iain (my best friend/colleague/arch-nemesis) has been talking about recently. He plays a lot of games, although not as many as he used to. He once told me about another game he played in which a character named Ayriz (Auriz?) died and it made him cry. Clearly, he is a wimp and needs a beating.

e: Aeriz.

I'm not a huge gamer and never will be, but there's something unique and always magical about The Legend of Zelda. Iíve been waiting for this particular Zelda game for years. I bought my Wii U last year and it has basically collected dust because Iím not too thrilled with many of the games I bought for it, but this Zelda is going to be, hopefully, the only reason why anyone will hang onto their Wii U systems.

Iím not sure what game your friend played to make him cry, but sometimes an emotional narrative can come through in a game, especially one that youíve become heavily enthralled with.

I'll email him and ask what the title of the game was.
And yeah, I know it's easy to get so immersed in a game (or music or a book or an image etc) that one becomes emotional. :) I just like reminding my best friend that he's a wimp. ;D

Ah okay, yeah, Final Fantasy has a huge fanbase, which doesnít include me. :) I only truly love a few game franchises.
