    @Wayne I have them both on the PC - played a lot of the first one, almost none of the second one. The story in these games is bollocks anyways, it's all about the murderbox, so I'm not concerned about continuity.

    My (drunken) theory was that I'm more likely to play this as it's on the Series X than I am to sit down at the PC. It's a good theory. Also: TWENTY THREE POUNDS! It only game out a week ago last Wednesday or something. :)

    All in the interest of not failing the challenge, ofc.

    @Phattso the story really picks up from 2. It's still daft as hell, but entertainingly so. Worth paying attention. (Agreed on Hitman 1, I paid no attention at all to the story in that.)

    I have a Steam link, and I have used it before, but it's not perfect. I (or at least drunken me) fancy some Hitman, so this is a good way to scratch that itch. It'll be on my list for a while I think - even just clearing the missions one time will take a while. But there's a good blend on there with Outriders and some VR swizzle, and I still have a free slot.

    No panic stations here. :)

    I might play it in reverse order then. If I get on with H3, perhaps it'll prompt me to fire up H2. If my new gaming laptop is ever purchased, I'd imagine that'd be a good candidate for playing resurrected backlog fodder. :)

    @Phattso Fair doís. Iím OCD about playing games in order, even if the narrative makes no odds.
    I havenít played a Hitman game since 2002, but I wouldnít mind giving them a shot again to fill that stealth hole that Assassinís Creed has given up on.

    I bring thee a cheeky post-Easter update. I was, as you would expect, guarding my eggs over the weekend. You all make me sick.

    I like playing games in order because quite often a later game will have qol improvements that make a previous game much less pleasant to play once you've got used to having them.

    In the case of Hitman, you can run the older games inside the H3 engine should you choose to. I'm not saying I'd play any game without its predecessors, but there are a great many (like Hitman, arguably) where it doesn't matter. Would anyone enjoy Far Cry 6 any less for skipping the shitty Far Cry 5 for example? :)

    Literally any FPS that doesnít have mantling is a pain now.

    Please add Final Fantasy IX (PC) to the list. Recently discovered Moguri Mod, which makes it look like it always did in my head instead of the blocky mess it actually was. Havenít played through it since 2003 or something.

    I'm pretty sure I know the answer already, but...

    Where do we stand on the closure of the PSP/PS3/Vita stores? Some of these will become unavailable full stop. Having browsed through the Vita's catalogue I can see some things I'd want to have, like Chaos;Child or an Ys or two.

    @dominalien if they are titles you can only get on the store, and through no other means, surely you can get them now, but only start them when you have a slot free?

    If you really wanted them you'd have already bought, played and completed them :p

    How are we nearly 40 pages deep and people still don't understand how this works. You buy a game, it goes in a slot. You got no slots, then you can't buy games.

    @dominalien Iím in the same boat, need to get cracking on my list to free up some spaces. I think the store is open to July.

    Asking anyone, aside from Tokyo Jungle are there any PS3 exclusive recommendations?

    The main Triple A PS3 exclusives all got PS4 remasters, so in that respect, there's not much to worry about.

    It is absolutely 100% fine to buy a shed load of games off the closing stores....if you are fine also to FAIL the challenge.

    Are there really any worthy of your precious time? You were not that bothered to pick them up till the threat of them disappearing loomed. I say you would be likely filling your backlog with many games that will barely get played.

    So choose to buy away like a merry fool. But every game bought needs a slot as usual. Instead, do yourselves a favour and let them slip away into the Abyss, while you float away, freed from the crushing Chains of Neediness that these likely mediocre games would impose on your very soul!

    Now boot Wayne out for buying a PS5 with all the games and not declaring them until convenient.

    @Nazo That was already cleared. And I made a point of not even unboxing the PS5 until slots were free'd up.

    How are we nearly 40 pages deep and people still don't understand how this works. You buy something, it goes on your list at the time of purchase, not when you open it.

    People in glass houses Wayne :p

    Surely this would count as an exceptional
    circumstance? Unlike, say the Mario collection which was removed from the eShop but physical copies are still available, some of these go forever. If it was me, if it was a choice between failing again or missing out, I would happily fail.

    It actually could lead to getting back into bad habits if Dom is kicked and doesnít have this challenge to restrain his spending. If Dom declares what titles he wants from the store then we could check if they are available elsewhere.
