Latest one? That would be Aero Fighters 2 in ACA Neo Geo line. Physical, and if it counts as retro, Lego Batman 2 on Xbox 360 (I already had 1 and 3 -this one on Xbox One-).

I'm looking forward to see what weekly offers will be coming later today, but if nothing interests me then I'll probably buy another ACA game -those never go on sale and I have money on the eShop thanks to a code bought with a discount on eBay, so all the purchases are actually 40% cheaper because of that-, and the next in my line would be Samurai Shodown II.

If Shantae: Risky's Revenge on Wii U finally goes on sale (I missed it last time), then that will be my new retro purchase -if it counts, being actually a port- because I want to complete the saga.

Ordered Funky Fantasy, a bizzare-looking Japanese tactical RPG for Saturn.
Hope I can emu the game once getting the real copy, as I've heard the real hardware can be quite a pain these days.

I only heard of the game after Tomato released a Google-translated Final Fantasy IV translation he dubbed "Funky Fantasy IV" and I found out that title was actually used by a real game.

Gamestop.com had a Buy-2-Get-1-Free sale last week, so I went whole-hog and bought a bunch of stuff I had been eyeing for years:

Digimon World: Dawn (DS)
Diddy Kong Racing (N64)
Kirby's Air Ride (GCN)
Shadow of Destiny (PS2)
Azure Dreams (PS)
Gundam Battle Assault 2 (PS)
Legend of Legaia (PS)
Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins (PS)
Vandal Hearts (PS)
Vandal Hearts II (PS)
Wipeout XL (PS)

Looking forward to finally playing each of these.

Grabbed me a copy of Legend of Mana for PS1 in very good condition. Was £75 but had some stuff to trade in so in the end just a £10.

@darkswabber a PSP is always a great purchase, well done!

Bought myself a game lot last week, with Crazy Taxy, Dead or Alive, Patapon 3 (sealed!) etc (11 games) for a measly 45 euro... great deal on those!

The original fire has died and gone, but the riot inside moves on.

Do NES Classic Minis count, cos I ordered one of those last night.

@Moroboshi876 No, last gen doesn't count

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

@gcunit This week I'll probably buy, among other games, Arcade Game Series 3-in-1 pack on Xbox One. It's Pac-man, Galaga and Dig Dug as they were originally, so as retro as they come, but with achievements and stuff. Would they count?

@gcunit last gen launched 12 years ago. IMO everything that’s either 5+ years old or is discontineud counts as retro purchases. I use this as a collection addition thread anyway and just add all my purchases once I think there is enough retro inbetween there. (Didn’t want to make a collection purchase thread as it would be the same as this thread with current gen added to it)

I see those are all EU games except for the Platinum.
A gambling man, are you?

@KingMike Well I got Diamond, Pearl and Platinum from the same guy.

I looked long and hard about its authenticity. At the end I even opened the cartridge and I was relieved. The case worried me the most but it checks out.

I did not know that there are more than one US cases. This one is Canadian? Because it got French and English on the back texts I guess.

about done with all this retro collecting.
ive collected it all by this point.
some games people will never own, multiple copies all that stuff.
now ive decided to regroup and whittle it down to a collection of games i know i want.
im glad i did this.

@Zuljaras I was saying I notice the rest of the games are EU, is because of the PEGI ratings and Platinum has a ESRB, which is North American.

Do you know about the Game Corner situation? I had thought that the English versions of the Pokemon games were identical internationally EXCEPT for Platinum which is reported to have disabled the slot machine minigame for the EU release only, due to PEGI announcing gambling alone warranted a ratings hike.

English and French is possibly Canadian. I'm going to guess the US box is English-only, judging by the other Pokemon DS games I also have.
I know before the DS era, US boxes were typically English-only while Canadian boxes had both languages. But in the DS/Wii era Nintendo started to release multi-lingual boxes in the US as well (adding Spanish to the box text as well).
My Platinum is a Canadian as well. But I checked and the Pearl (US, my original purchase) and SoulSilver (US, I recall that copy I pieced together buying a case with the manual from ebay to go with a loose card I picked up from GameStop) are English-only. Can tell by the game ID code printed next to the UPC.
My guess is that maybe Canadian copies were a bit more abundant on the New-Old-Stock market once the games started to go out of print, as I recall I bought my Platinum, Black 1 and White 1 sealed after the height of TPP in 2014, when the games were pretty old. Turns out the Black was a Canadian (two language box) and White was US (English).

@KingMike I did not know that about the Game Corner. Thanks for the interesting info!

Ordered 7 vita games yesterday that came in the mail today.

Touch my katamari
Disgaea 3 absence of justice
Disgaea 4 a promise revisited
Earth defense force 2 invaders from planet space
Persona 4 golden
World of final fantasy
Maramusa rebirth

With the recent news that the production of vita cartridges and ps3 discs had stopped and that new digital purchases for ps3 an vita will stop in march 2019 I decided to replace all my digital copies with physical copies amd buy everything I still wanted. Luckily a dutch store (nedgame) just had 1 final vita restock of 200+ Different games and a sale, although I had to be quick since about 100 different vita games completely sold out within a few days.

Odd that they'd stop PS3 discs since aren't those just Blu-Ray discs? (well, I suppose with some kind of copy-protection alteration)
I guess just nobody was ordering them anymore.
Well, too late for Gaijinworks to release the PS3 Class of Heroes 3 physical then as well. (since they canceled the PSP version after it turned out to be too late to get UMDs made)
